Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

Bears placed franchise tag on WR Allen Robinson, per source.

There goes that option

I honestly didn't think he'd be an option, he probably wants to be WR1 and would want WR1 money.

I think Golladay is going to want the same, although he's going to be a FA. So I think it is going to be down to either Curtis Samuel or Corey Davis.

Corey Davis. Plus, Mariota and Davis have a good rapport already having played three years together in Tennessee.

Wouldn't be mad about Fuller though.

I like Fuller too, but he has never played a 16 game season, will be suspended for the first week due to PEDs. I won't be upset if we get him, but I don't think he should be our first option.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

Several teams are legit eyeing Washington Football CB Ronald Darby per sources, but WFT still hopes to keep him. The CB market is a weird one. No elite options, but several solid players. Could be a scenario where some choose 1-year deals in this lower-cap environment.

Ben Stalding

Would be a big loss IMO

Shoot, hopefully we will sign him before the free agency starts. Per Keim, the team is actively working on resigning him so fingers crossed.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

Saints reportedly tagging their Safety Marcus Williams. Salary cap is such a joke, no way they should have enough to tag anyone.

I don't think the cap is a joke, it's just that teams probably already know the players that can be released to give them cap relief AND/OR players that are likely to restructure their contracts.

This is why I laugh when fans say that "players should honor their contracts." Because most of the time it is teams that do not honor a contract. And I get it, it is a business decision, but still.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

I know it's a business but fans mainly get upset when the player treats it like a business and not when the team does

I get that but when you are 50M to the bad you should not be able to place a franchise tag. In fact I would argue that teams should not be allowed to franchise if they are below zero. That would both enhance player movement (win for players) and enforce cap integrity (win for owners)

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

Teams don't have to be compliant with the cap until March 17th, when the new league year begins. On top of that, no one even knows what the cap is yet.

Re: Around the NFL: NFL Offseason

The NFL informed teams this morning that the salary cap has been set at $182.5 million, per sources.
