  1. I am aware of his current contract and I expect him to ask for more $$ this yr from ANY team that trades for him
  2. This is my latest take. I think JD is slow playing the cap and free agent signings because he is reserving a significant amt of $$ in case they acquire Russell or Watson. At the same time, i believe the offers for Darnold have been underwhelming at best, and he is starting to get offers/feelers for number 2 pick. In addition, he has not even had opportunity to see Fields or Wilsons pro days and meet with them. Imo, alot of irons in the fire has significantly slowed acquisitions.
  3. I agree, i think we are getting lower offers than expected. We might as well just keep him, and move forward with any drafting a qb plans. Backup qbs are expensive, and we would need one anyway..no need to just give him away...
  4. Read the article, says might be interested as Darnold as replacement, not necessarily in a trade for wilson. Put this in worst nightmare file, Pats trade 3 ones for Russell, miami does same for Watson, Jets trade Darnold to Seattle, jets Draft wilson. Net, 3 of Nfls top qbs in AFC East. Again, worst nightmare.
  5. I love what the Pats have done. They acquired many of the players this board was clamoring for. They are definitely a playoff team again. That said, couple things, they are in a very different spot, 70 year old coach, alot of veteran players, used to winning etc. Jets in very stages of rebuild again. Years away from being contender.Newton will hold them back though, they clearly are trying to recreate what they had with Brady, 2 te offense etc. Problem is that is not suited to Newtons strengths. They get another qb, and they can make some noise in playoffs.
  6. Same here, makes zero sense ! Caught 78 balls two years ago, and 59 this year in 11 games. All while playing with terrible qbs. Samuel is not an upgrade. Just extend Crowder a yr or so, and smooth out cap number.
  7. Not sure about the rest of free agency, but i think they will be equally active today, signing 3–4 players. I expect some of Saleh’s former olayers to sign today. I would really like to add a solid tight end too...
  8. They came last yr, didn’t he have 11.5? Would not be surprised at all if Lawson gets double digit sacks
  9. Tomorrow he will add some former sf players.... on defense...
  10. See cimini’s article today, seems to back up theory that around the league would be a concern to free agents...p
  11. I completely disagree with JD regarding not having settled on keeping or trading Darnold prior to free agency start. What top offensive play makers are gonna make that career decision not knowing who the qb is? As for the money, for those top guys it will be very similar, so thats a moot point.
  12. Yep, this is what mccagnan did, when we trading with colts, we knew one of several would be there, they clearly had a few rated closely. Most believe they thought Baker would fall to them, and then Browns threw a curveball, and took him
  13. Mac is not going top 12, Lance will be taken before Jones, bank on it.
  14. I think he is their target , after signing newton for a yr, they will look to trade up, zero chance he lasts till 15. Broncos or Carolina would take him at 8 or 9
  15. Definitely helping himself, going top 10 for sure, many will evaluate him over Fields..
  16. Sam is worse, at least Cam had over a dozen rushing tds, and his weapons were actually worse than Jets!,
  17. Have friend that is big Pats fan, all off season telling me no way they bring him back, i said actually would not surprise me at all. Now, not returning , told you so texts...... BB is nothing without Brady!,
  18. Right. Alot of the narrative out there starts with are Fields or Wilson a big enough upgrade over Sam to justify taking them. In truth, imo, i think even if they are on par with Sam, the financial ramifications are immense.
  19. JD needs to get on the phone with the 5-6 teams that are still 20 plus million over the cap, and see what kind of solid players he can pick up for mid rd picks, like Bb just did.
  20. This has much less to do with Sam, much more about anyone acquiring Watson. No way he plays for 11-12 million next yr. As part of accepting any trade, new team will need to up that substantially.
  21. No chance they only get a 3, Zero. They could hold him a yr, let him go in free agency , and get a 3 comp pick anyway.
