  1. As was already pretty universally thought, Fitz will likely be playing for someone else in 2021. How many different teams will that make it, 8? 9? The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports Ryan Fitzpatrick "believes he’s played well enough the past couple of years to get a chance to at least compete for a starting job with some team." The Dolphins' commitment to Tua Tagovailoa as the team's starter means Fitzpatrick would have to look elsewhere this offseason if he wants a starting gig. Fitzpatrick was less than thrilled with Miami's decision to bench him at midseason in fav
  2. Probably because I posted about Watson too...ugh! Sigh...sorry guys. Mods, please delete/edit if you can.
  3. Looks like the Steelers and BB are going to work something out financially so he will be back this season. But, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see them do something to improve their QB situation (either in the draft or FA) for life post Ben. Also, for insurance in case BB just can't get it done. IIRC, he started off pretty good in 2020, but his accuracy and arm strength waned as the season played out. Steelers president Art Rooney II said he has no performance-based concerns about Ben Roethlisberger. Rooney reiterated that the team would need to figure out contract restruc
  4. Yeah, it's a high stakes game of chicken. While the Texans are obviously dug in, all it will take is a team to make them an offer they can't refuse and they will realize that trading Watson is what is best for the team (and him). I can see this situation dragging out right up til the draft.
  5. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports "no one believes" Deshaun Watson will be traded. That's via sources "knee deep" in the situation. Rapsheet appears to be referring to teams that might be interested in acquiring the elite young quarterback. Rapoport also reports the Texans do not view either the start of free agency or the draft as "any sort of deadline." Rapsheet believes the drama will last for a "very, very long time." That is consistent with the established facts, as each side continues to dig in, both out in the open and via leaks. Source: Ian Rapoport on Twitter

  7. Looked but didn't see a thread for 2021 started for him yet. With this most recent report, I think it's safe to say there's something to the rumors swirling around Russell Wilson not being happy and potentially wanting to be traded. Russell Wilson QB, Seattle Seahawks The Athletic's Michael-Shawn Dugar, Mike Sando and Jayson Jenks report Russell Wilson's camp has broached trade destinations with Seattle to the Dolphins, Jets, Saints and Raiders. The report also notes that "some people around the league" believe a trade will happen, if not this offseason th
  8. Speaking Wednesday, 49ers GM John Lynch said "I really believe" Jimmy Garoppolo will be the team's starting quarterback in 2021. Lynch made it sound more like he needs to upgrade the Niners' backup spot behind injury-riddled Garoppolo. “When he’s healthy, he’s played at a high level,” Lynch said. “But we probably have to add someone. We probably need to improve ourselves, so if he’s not there, we’re all right; we can win games." C.J. Beathard is a free agent, and Nick Mullens is a restricted one. The Niners went 13-3 when Garoppolo was healthy for all 16 games in 2019 and advanced to
  9. Bucs GM Jason Licht said “it’s a possibility” the team extends Tom Brady this offseason. “He certainly didn’t look like he slowed down any this year," Licht said on the Rich Eisen Show. "We’ll have to see how that goes. He really had a good time this year winning the Super Bowl. Likes our organization, likes our coaches, and we certainly love him. We’d like to keep this going.” Brady is signed through next year at $25 million. He's said he wants to play until he's at least 45, so the Bucs are likely to give him a one-year extension this offseason. Tampa can also clear cap space by con
  10. Yeah, here's the blurb from the main page you guys are referring to: Miami Herald's Barry Jackson reports there's "mutual interest" between the Dolphins and impending free agent Aaron Jones. Miami will have roughly $26 million in cap space when the new league year begins and could easily create an additional $36 million in cap space by restructuring contracts and/or outright releasing a number of veterans. The Dolphins could also opt for the cheaper route in adding to its backfield with the No. 18 overall pick and instead allocating any excess cap to a high-end wide receiver a
  11. I just don't see GB letting both backs walk in FA and rolling with Dillon a feature back in only his second season as a pro (a with a total of 46 career carries). You may want them to do that, but I just don't see it. Also think they re-sign JWill to a more modest extension (as compared to what AJ will likely fetch on the open market). It was said the coaches noticed how much better condition he was in when he reported last season, and he looked really good when given the chance (especially when Jones was out for a few games). He's no Aaron Jones, but he's above average talent at the posi
  12. Chris Godwin said he wants to remain in Tampa but wants to "get paid too." While a much sought-after free agent looking to maximize his earnings isn't exactly breaking news, Godwin's comments indicate he won't give the Bucs a hometown discount if the team wants to retain their star wideout. “An extension would be ideal," Godwin said Tuesday. "I want to be in Tampa, but I want to get paid, too.” Bucs head coach Bruce Arians has been clear that the team wants to bring back Godwin, who would remain a key part of the team's Tom Brady-led offense. It would be a major upset if Godwin ended
  13. Dak Prescott QB, Dallas Cowboys NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys want to extend impending free agent Dak Prescott "now." Per Rapsheet, the Cowboys are "confident enough in Prescott's rehab to do a big-time, long-term deal now." The Cowboys may want the deal now, but even as he rehabs his gruesome injury, Prescott holds all the leverage. He can play 2021 out with a fully guaranteed $37.7 million under his second consecutive franchise tag. Prescott's camp knows the Cowboys desperately need to get that number down. The window to apply the tag is now op
  14. Looked but didn't see a thread started for him yet. This blurb from the main page should be good enough to get the conversation started. The question is...does GB re-sign him or let him walk? Aaron Jones RB, Green Bay Packers The Athletic's Sheil Kapadia believes Aaron Jones could get up to $15 million a year in free agency. That would put Jones on par with Alvin Kamara and Ezekiel Elliott, and just $1 million less than Christian McCaffrey, the highest paid running back in NFL history. It would hardly be surprising to see a team break open the vault for J
  15. While your point is certainly valid, he actually outlined it in his post citing what Chicago did a few years back to draft Trubisky. So, it is plausible. 'Course, we all know how well that worked out for the Bears....LOL!
