You have D Henry and their offense line , a Qb job should be much easier.  R Tannehill  couldn’t get the job done, and it doesn’t how many weapons you have .  See B Mayfield.     There so many weapons the top tier teams have in AFC that you better have secondary that can match up.    Raiders are closing in signing S Gilmore - no where near the Cb he once was , but never have enough cb’s .  Wouldn’t mind if they tried him at Ss .

Bengals are landing La’el Collins

The Cowboys moved on. The Bengals moved in.

The Bengals and tackle La'el Collins are “finishing up” a deal, per a source with knowledge of the situation. Cincinnati was aggressive and remained persistent, getting an agreement finalized before other teams could lure Collins to town.

Plenty of immediate high impact starters still out there

All solid veterans but also A LOT of injury history and/or probably have to let their egos recognize they may have to lower their salary demands if they want to sign pre-draft. 

Of that group who last until a TC injury to a starter? OBJ? Z. smith? Julio Jones?

Does anyone know why Za’Darious Smith is still available ?

Does he have a hidden injury that he never disclosed? Legal problems? IRS audit pending?

what gives?

According to The Athletic's Jeff Zrebiec, the Ravens felt like they had a verbal agreement with Smith on Wednesday afternoon, but then the former Raven changed his mind.

So what happened?

"Smith, according to sources, had second thoughts about the agreement and backed out of it Wednesday night, not long after details started coming out about the contracts agreed to by fellow free agent pass rushers Von Miller (Buffalo Bills) and Chandler Jones (Las Vegas Raiders)," Zrebiec wrote.

The agreement with Smith reportedly was for a four-year, $35 million deal ($8.75 million average per season) that carried a maximum value of $50 million.

According to reports, the deals for Miller (six years, $120 million for an average of $20 million per season) and Jones (three years, $51 million for an average of $17 million per season) were far more lucrative.

"The Ravens, according to sources, worked to revise the deal and alleviate some of Smith's concerns. However, the two sides couldn't find a compromise that worked for both sides," Zrebiec wrote.

This is starting to have the feel of 2019 offseason when we knew we desperately needed a Center. 

Mac did nothing. We kept Harrison and shell shocked Darnold forever.

I hope JD got some tricks up his sleeve. We need some proven depth at least.
