    Shelton to Patriots for Conditional 2019 pick. I was unaware that Dorsey gets paid per transaction.

    Think the Taylor trade was a boneheaded move, he doesn't offer them much of an upgrade at QB (imo), and won't make this offense sing. They could have gotten a better bridge QB.

    Three 2nd round picks was cheap. Moving up into a top pick when a potential franchise quarterback is available never comes without a high cost. I'm surprised the deal didn't include the Jets' 2019 1st round pick. The Robert Griffin deal included that year's 1st round pick (also the 6th pick), that year's 2nd round pick, and the next two year's 1st round picks. The Carson Wentz deal included that year's 1st round pick (8th pick), that year's 3rd and 4th round picks, the next year's 1st round pick, and a second round pick 2 years later. The Eagles also got a conditional 4th-5th round pick back along with the 2nd pick of the draft.

    i'm reading some of that nonsense, just wow... he talks like championships are won or lost by one guy on the team. Even Michael Jordan had a quality group of guys around him. Should Dan Marino be removed from the HoF? Also, as someone who has master's level classes in statistics, econometrics, modeling... I know just enough to say that guy couldn't crunch data to get a straight line between two points.

    Taylor has been a great game manager. I believe he has one of the best TD to INT ratios in the NFL. With Dorsey as a GM you have to expect something like this. He brought Alex Smith in to KC because he liked Smiths ability to manage the game and not turn the ball over. That’s exactly what they got in Taylor. For a 3rd rd pick, who would turn the ball over less Taylor, a rookie QB, Kizer, or what ever FA QB decided to play in Cleveland

    Barkley with the #1 pick followed by one of Mayfield/Allen/ Rosen with the #4 pick (Tyrod Taylor to start in 2018 as the hold the fort guy). Browns in the driver's seat for sure. Nice work by Dorsey if this comes to fruition.

    Coleman and Gordon on the outside, Landry in the slot. That could be a top 5 WR trio in the league. Pick up Barkley, a rookie QB to groom in the first round of this years draft. Hopefully they can land one of the big QB's in FA. Already a solid O-line and defense. They could make an immediate impact next year.

    My Issue with Bell is that while I agree he should be paid as the best ( even though in reality he isn't statistically, 2nd to Gurley in scrimmage yards and barely ahead of Hunt) His ask is ludicrous. They upped their offer from last years offer and he said no, he wants minimum annual average of this years tag value. My sense is people go a little over the top over his numbers in the fantasy world, but in reality, he averaged 4 YPC and 4.5 yards per touch, with one of the best Olines in the game, a HOF QB and the best WR in the game. He had 2 runs over 20 yards, he's slow, but an elite pass blocker and receiver. I believe a guy like Dion Lewis would fill the role beautifully, signing bell totally handicaps them for improving what they need to win the super bowl and that's def, whens the last time a RB carried a team to the SB. They only have 6 mil in cap space and need to make up 8 mil to pay for the tag ( Entire Tag counts towards the cap, long term deal can be spread out over the life of the deal)... you can't devote that much cap room to a RB when you have other needs, especially with Ben done in 2-3 years, its win now and you don't need a 15 mil RB to win in the NFL. An old Deangello Williams had some of his best games of his career with this Offense, I say sign a Dion Lewis or Carlos Hyde for 5-6 mil, shore up the def and Draft some depth at RB and let him go.

    It is unlikely that Saquon will rush for 1,600 yards on any of the teams that will likely draft him. But receiving stats are far more important than rushing yards in elevating a player from tier 2 to tier 1. Saquon is being promoted as an elite receiver. Scouts are saying that he was a better receiver than any of the wide receivers in the Big Ten last year. Alvin Kamara was the 3rd or 4th highest scoring fantasy running back last season depending on the scoring system. He had 120 carries for 728 yards. Even on the Giants and Colts, it will be difficult for Saquon not to be tier 1 if he is a 3-down back featured in the passing game.

    I don't keep up with Tampa media anymore but it also seems weird that you get popped for PEDs and you go to rehab. I can't think of a PED, other than an amphetamine, that rehab would help for?

    Just looked at the draft recap in my 12 man PPR redraft last year, and no one drafted him. This is a competitive league with savvy owners as well. Only 16 TE's were drafted, with the other Austin (Hooper) being the last one off the board. Based on last years numbers, I don't think anyone will really be targeting him. Only people who spend entirely too much free time like all of us will be generating buzz. He'll be great for a no TE strategy, and I truly think his floor will be top 12 TE.

    The jets gave up a chance at 3 front line contributors to move up 3 spots in a draft where the talent upgrade from 6-3 is minimal. Draft as many good players as you can. Giving up that much for that move is ridiculous!

    Bengals acquired LT Cordy Glenn from the Bills. The teams are swapping first-round picks (Cincinnati's No. 12, Buffalo's No. 21) as compensation. Cincinnati is also getting a fifth-round pick, Buffalo a sixth.

    I know. And not saying they're horrible. Just that they aren't good enough to really minimize Jenkins' looks much. I'm not saying this is the new Gronk. Just a great value deal with upside.

    i thought crabtree did relatively well in oak. while nelson seems to be breaking down, i think last year had more to do with hundley than nelson. nelson may not be able to get open long, but should still be a solid possession guy.

    Colts have decided to just play the fuckit game. What is the fuckit game you ask? "Thanks for playing, better luck next year". Seriously - they have money to spend and they're just watching the talent go elsewhere. I guess if I were a FA, I wouldn't want to go to Indy either unless I was overpaid to do so.

    I can't speak for the rest of the Vikings fans (or for the team, obviously), but my gut tells me Keenum somewhat reached his ceiling this season. Not necessarily a one-year wonder (I don't think he'll be garbage going forward, by any means), but I'm not really sure he can do much better than he did last year. And, while the NFC Championship game was certainly not solely on him, I do think he showed some signs of cracking under pressure in that game.... Something we hadn't seen much of, prior to that. I thought there were a number of instances throughout the season where the end result looked much better than the means of getting there, in terms of how he played. Throwing up desperation passes off of his back foot, only to see Thielen or somebody else bail him out by making a great catch. Balls that are intercepted at a very high rate were turned into completions, or worst case, incompletions. Some of that can be attributed to Case having a knack for getting out of pressure situations, but some of it was also pure dumb luck. I could see that luck running out next year, and his performance bouncing back towards a much more average/mediocre result. Bottom line.... I think most would agree that Cousins is an upgrade from Keenum. How much is the question. So, the real question becomes at what point is the upgrade worth more than the price difference. Is Cousins worth double what Keenum is worth, if Keenum is 90% of what Cousins brings, in terms of performance? Probably not. On the other hand, I think MIN would gladly pay a lot more for Cousins if they feel the upgrade is significant enough for them to improve from where they were last year. You can't put a price tag on the potential of reaching/winning a SB, and the reality is that they were pretty close. Close enough that a home loss to Detroit likely cost them home field advantage in a season in which they could have played in a SB at home. I think sticking with Keenum would have been the conservative move. Signing Cousins may or may not turn out to bring the results they're looking for, but at least it shows me that they're aggressively looking to improve. And, whether it be trading for Bradford two years ago, or signing Cousins now, I would rather see them making moves towards improvement than just sitting back and hoping things turn out better next year.

    All the pressure on now. If they do anything less than make the SB, Vike fans will grumble. "We got farther with Keenum!"

    This. It takes a village to raise a football team. The players drafted at the top of the NFL draft don't have a very disproportionate number of NFL championships regardless of position. It's probably compounded by the fact that the teams that draft them are in shambles and often poorly run. I don't think the Michael Jordan analogy works, though. Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Hakeem Olajuwon, Kobe Bryant, and Tim Duncan are 6 players. They have collectively won 22 of the last 27 NBA championships.

    I'm actually in one of the best local markets for sports talk. If you want to believe they're journalist then by all means have at it. I'm sure they're willing to cite the source and provide the evidence of what they say...they never provide hot takes or anything like that, just the facts right?

    That's a shame. He was a reliable, gutsy, hard-working player - I suppose it's just Father Time catching up with him! He always seemed like a very humble, decent man too, which is even more important. Enjoy your retirement, Frank, or enjoy getting a LOT of money to be a back-up somewhere. You've earned it!
