notes to take from this:

- Pryor is most likely our startling LT

- still looking for options for WR in FA and the draft

- colts did reach out to some WR FA targets but not having QB dissuaded them from coming to us

Apparently McAdoo was unimpressed by Baker in 2017.

McAdoo was impressed with Darnold last year.

Browns owners can blame themselves, with expenses continuing.

Almost has to be the Seahawks at this point.

Maybe Buccaneers. TB12 can't defeat Father Time forever.

Or, is Baker safer than Trey Lance?

Or even Mariotta?

And obviously Baker wasn't offered to Houston, but is Baker safer than Davis Mills(who's also had injuries)?

Seahawks, that Carroll wants to be run oriented, has to be a front runner here. Panthers are stuck with $18 mil. guaranteed to Sam Darnold and no one is going to take that on.

I mean as a starter, I don’t think Baker is interested as a backup (even if that’s his only option)

If the 49ers don’t think Lance is ready they will just keep Jimmy.

If the Falcons wanted him I think they would have gone and gotten him and not Mariotta.

If the Texans wanted him he would have been included in the Watson deal.

That would have been my second choice too, assuming he'd be able to participate in OTAs and camp.

If I were a fly on the wall, I would guess this big board was possible for Ballard

 

1) Carr - Not available/too expensive

2) Wilson - Quickly became too expensive.

3) Ryan - Made it happen

4) Jameis Winston - Injured to begin offseason/season

5) Marcus Mariota - Replaced Ryan

Why do I get the impression that Brady will defeat Father Time and play forever? Not a good feeling....

Baker may not have been offered to Houston.

At that time, Browns had more leverage, and may have wanted Baker out of the conference. Now the Browns keep looking increasingly damaged.

Doesn’t mean he’s gong to be happy about it or open to it which could very well turn teams off to him.  Real or not he is already viewed as having an attitude problem and teams aren’t exactly going to line up to trade for a guy with that and then being even more unhappy he’s going to be a backup.

Baker has tarnished his reputation too

Houston had Cleveland over a barrel and they knew it had they wanted Baker he would have been in that trade.

You've just seen too many plays with "Brady has all day to throw..."...as we all have.

One of the biggest things turning teams off is the asking price

 

   Same reason Jimmy G hasn’t been moved

And his attitude isn’t going to help.  That’s my point he doesn’t have much of a market right now.  It was reported the Colts and Panthers didn’t want him and both need a QB.  So if they weren’t interested I don’t think many others will be either.

Ballard looked like he had a caffeine high or something with his shaking (or someone with nicotine withdrawal) :) 

 

Would not mind TY back on a 1 year contract and a Will Fuller to stretch the field (as long as his hammy stays stretched too :)). The rest from the draft. To me, Kyle Rudolph fits the bill like a Jack Doyle with his run blocking. Blake Jarwin who played for the Cowboys might be a good addition too.

I'm not sure if Cleveland had anyone over a barrel, with NFC South competitors, but you're probably right that the Texans didn't want Baker

I didn’t say Cleveland had Houston over a barrel I said Houston had Cleveland over a barrel.  Cleveland announced they were out and then they realized they had damaged things with Baker too much to repair it and had to just keep offering until Watson and the Texans said yes.  If they wanted Baker he’d be there.

Shannon Sharp, former Bronco & Raven, said "NO MAJOR INJURIES" describing Deshaun Watson. His co-host, a reporter named Skip Bayliss, didn't correct Shannon Sharp's claim.

Watson tore his right ACL, in practice, rookie year(2017).

Google says Watson tore his left ACL in November 2014.

Are torn ACLs minor injuries?

(maybe they are if they're someone else's knees...not my knees)

Looks like TY is coming back. Ballard indicated he at least wanted him back today.

We need next level WRs to bring into this team. Nothing against TY, but he is past his prime.

Watson caused Browns vs Baker tension plus Falcons vs Ryan tension, and we benefited from that with Matt Ryan.

No complaints there.  There is a lesson here for teams.  Get the new guy before your old guy finds out or it puts you in a bad spot.
