I would not report the Eagles have internal unanimity on Hurts as QB1 but sources say the boss, Jeffrey Lurie, has instructed his group to prioritize making Hurts successful in 2021 as opposed to creating a true competition.

[quote=AnonEmouse;1278655]I must admit I always find it unusual how much of a difference there is between the US and other nations when it comes to tier 2+ sport. i.e. Lower league football over here is well supported, almost as well as the Premier League, and has the revenue to support quite good salaries in the 2nd tier (Championship) and at least enough in the next level (League 1) to live off. Lower divisions do tend to have more part time players, and the lowest levels are lucky if they get expenses, but between the top 3 tiers that's 68 teams, with many players in the PL earning similar if not more money to NFL players. They play more games here obviously, so a direct comparison doesn't really make sense. But is it more a case that there are other sports competing for the audience (baseball, basketball, CFB), that a spring league professional set up couldn't; make the revenue? Or is it that the players wouldn't accept more economic salaries for the risk etc.?[/quote]

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but my understanding is that a team in the 2nd tier has the possible opportunity to move up to the Premier League, with a team that wasn't as successful moving down. That can't happen in American professional sport. I wish it could.

Interesting points about some of our potential FA targets. Notably Corey Davis - some have suggested going after him. I wouldn't say no to him, but I'd be looking to go after the likes of Robinson, Golladay, Samuel far in preference to Davis. And it also highlights how the market may not be as rich for Scherff as maybe he thinks.

Yes, that is a good point. In your leagues, it's more about player movement, particularly in baseball. I'd say it's also something of a restriction for CFB; the static nature of the college divisions means poor performance mainly affects the coaching/athletic staff and to a degree the players, not the institutions themselves (except maybe in revenue terms?).

As much as I like Robinson, I don't think he's coming here to be WR2 or even WR1B to Terry. I think we have a better chance of landing a Samuel or Davis, maybe even Golladay, although I'm wondering if he's also going to be looking to be WR1 somewhere else.

Looks like Dak is going to get a deal done per Rap sheet... He wants to stay in Dallas.

There goes another QB option (Not that it was likely anyway)

I'd rather see Dak back with the Cowpukes than having them luck out and get Watson or Wilson.

That being said, Dallas has little cap room, so they are going to have to cut a lot of people to get a deal done with Dak.

Yeah, a long term deal or the franchise tag, either one will likely cripple them financially. Dak is in a good position. Unfortunately he and that offense will probably have to score 50 points a game to compete.

Assuming those players want to restructure their contracts.

The Jags are sitting pretty all-around. They can be seriously competitive as soon as next year with a good offseason and Sunshine being anywhere near as good as advertised.

Honestly, restructuring means kicking the can down the road. But you can only get so many players to do this. I see the Cowpukes having to part ways with a number of players.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason
 
Yeah, but for those guys, their future salaries are already greater than this year's salary. I don't know how they kick the can in this case.

Yeah I get that. I'm just saying that they both account for $125mil guaranteed money total already, so I'm not sure what that restructuring is going to look like.
