I would think that Baker would be heading to HOU, young enough to build around.  Not so with Ryan.

The Texan's have a young QB that played a hell of a lot better than he did. Sills looked good, better than Baker. The Texan's will take 3 #1 picks, plus a couple players.

Surprised Houston would do that.  I would think Atlanta would be the choice to get him out of the AFC,  Maybe the Browns are offering more.  

Houston will end up with a good haul for Watson.

If we can get Baker without giving up a 1st. That will make this offseason for us.

Give up a 1st? If they got a 4th that would be something, the Browns would need to dump his salary. That said, looks like Watson wisely doesn't go Brown..

I was absolutely STUNNED by this news today !!

 

Cleveland must have been willing to give up more draft capital - AND - over pay a QB with "baggage".

 

Plus - they HAVE to keep Baker until Watson is done with his expected NFL suspension.

 

Cray cray in Cleveland !!!

Clevland vs, Cincinnati should be two games to watch this year. Browns are now tops in QB, RB, WR. Now they might be in the final playoff game for the Super Bowl. Question: What happens if Watson is suspended for X number of games? Was that possibility included in the contract?

Props to Watson.... Richest guaranteed NFL contract ever and blew Rogers contract completely away.

 

Props to the Brownies for getting a franchise QB that's a difference maker.

 

 And best of all it's not good news for the Steelers lol.

Watson's deal  will throw a wrench in to all future QB deals. Wait & See. How long has it been since the Steelers were at the bottom of their division (for 2022)

1.Cincinnati or Cleveland

2.Baltimore

3.Pittsburgh

    • I agree losing Hill is a huge loss. I do think they take a tiny step back, but they could also take a step forward.    Not a bad pass catching group at all...    RB - CEH is a good catching RB, not that he needs it though TE - Kelce - don't need to say anything here   WR - MVS - solid and quality X JuJu - likely does better with Mahomes over Big Ben...  Hardman - productive guy, and should take a step forward now that he's no longer in Hill's shadow Moore - rook, but I like his chances.   A lot of teams would like to have that group
    • Using unit totals of  RB - 60 TE - 55 WR - 135   Keeping things simple, and only including the top 4 TEs on the depth chart.   Note, most of the depth chart chatter has Ogletree over Woods at this point, and climbing..... citing Ogletree's hands and route running as being more advanced.    I'd also add that there's a good chance that Granson is again used in more of a TE/HB/slot hybrid role, than traditional TE. That doesn't guarantee anything though. We've heard reports of shovels in camp (Hybrid use) but also heard reports of corner routes. 
    • Well it's probably a lost cause to discuss this further then.  Bottom line is you can have one stud wideout but teams will figure out how to remove him on key downs that decide the game.  In today's league you need multiple matchups to allow you to break down a defense and isolate who you want on who for a given look and dismantle them.  If you get to that four threat range and have a QB who can dish it most defenses are gonna break down and the offense will get a fancy nickname in history.   Let me ask you this...  Do you think the Chiefs are a great offense this year?   If you say yes by assumption of they're great every year, I would refer you to their roster.  Who are their top threats in the passing game.  How deep do you think they go?   Way I see it Kelce is a top weapon.  You can ruin players days with him.  But after him there's some question marks.  Hardman?  Ok.  Sure.  Not a huge fan but he's a guy you can get some isolations with.  After that, though, I'm not seeing special.  Maybe I'm too high and missing someone, but I'm seeing two good weapons and an offense that is praying they hit on Sky Moore.  I'd say they go two deep.  Which is not a great offense btw.  So I'd expect their offensive throughput to dip in 2022, and when it does all the talking heads will bag on Mahomes but really it will be they had to run the ball more and protect longer to survive.

    • Going to do unit polls for RB, TE, and WR.   Will take a down a level to increments of 5s, instead of 10s.    Using unit totals of  RB - 60 TE - 55 WR - 135
