We have a ton of cap space. We will address one or more of our needs through fa.

Watching this team now I see more of a need at LB and Oline than edge.

Like I’m tired of saying we need a LB every year, I’m tired of saying we need a legit Guard on the left side.

Gates is gone, you sign Larson at center?

Paul is doing a decent job and will get better, Mason Brooks looks promising.

Well since we have all that $$& why didn’t we just keep Sweat instead of paying someone else? Need to draft a young Edge rusher, you can sign a proven LB in FA.

I guess since he will be in year five and we basically got the same pick we used on him?

Idc where they get who. Depends on who is there in fa and the draft. Better get an edge, a lb, and oline - and a corner. Bsj stinks.

I would get rid of all these guys including Gates and have over $91 Million in cap space. https://riggosrag.com/posts/5-early-...idseason-point

Problems with Oline contacts, Leno got restructure and they’re more of a cap hit now to cut him next year. Unless you Post June designate. Before the restructure it was a no brainer as it was like a 4 to 1 free cap to dead cap…no more. He probably stays, but has played fairly well this season.

Gates is an easier one to stomach than Wylie…Wylie looks to be here in 2024. Also Wylie’s play has been better as of late. Gates there is zero argument to keep him…none.

Nothing irks me more than dead cap. Next year we will still hold 4 mil dead cap of Roullier and over 2 million dead cap to Norwell.

If we go on a Oline cutting campaign realistically could have upwards of 15-20 mill in dead cap alone on the Oline.

Ron and front office completely fucked up the Oline.

Not sure where you are getting your info but we would make cap savings by cutting all three of Leno, Wylie and Gates. However it is prudent to keep Leno as we don't know yet whether a good tackle will available, and if it is a rookie, having Leno around as a mentor would be useful

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

Crucial offseason. You have to take advantage of a QB on a 5th round contract. Gotta nail this draft and bring a few key free agents.

The best part is Ron won't be making any selections. Even if he is somehow kept, which I doubt, he won't be making the decisions.

Yup. Having Sam excel on this contract is what can set you up for sustained success BUT, like you said, they better nail it in the draft and FA. This is a rare opportunity to build a complete team without breaking the bank on a quarterback.

Only way Ron is kept is if they make the playoffs and probably would at least need to show up in the playoff game. Even if they sneak in and get madevto look like first round fodder he is gone.

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

I really want to go OL in the 1st round but I'd be tempted to use some draft capital to trade up and get Marvin Harrison Jr or Keon Coleman depending on how the board shakes out.

We need that true #1 weapon on offense and as much as I love Terry, he isn't that guy.

I thought we were going to be friends. But as a FSU fan, Coleman is a damn alien.

Re: 2024 Early Bird Draft Thread

I'd be fine with picking just about any position in the 1st round at this point with the exception of DT, RB, and QB. Upgrades are needed everywhere...

Just don't get desperate and reach for those positions of particular need. Too many examples of that not working out in the recent past. Just pick the very best player on your board - or find a trade partner to acquire more picks.

I say trade down and acquire more picks.
