    OBJ/Landry/Chubb/Hunt/Duke/Njoku. That is 100% the best skill position team in the NFL, not even close.

    I saw that was gonna happen last night and saw that it did this morning. Being in those 32 team leagues has made me aware of Harris. Glad to have him

    Stupid. He's going to prove, just like Demarco Murray did, that the RB isn't all about talent. It's the system that makes the RB. He went to a horrible spot. I for sure won't touch him in fantasy next year. No way, Jose! Or is it HoZay?

    so a slightly better deal while losing out $14mil last season? Someone failed math.

    Funny read!! “I think it will be good to keep Eli on the bench for a year or two so he can learn the ropes of being an NFL quarterback."

    maybe, maybe not. It all depends on whether the Steelers have a net loss, net gain, or neither in the number of Qualified Unrestricted Free Agents it acquires vs the number of Qualified Unrestricted Free Agents it loses. If they acquire a greater number of UFA's than they lose, or if it's a wash, then there will be no comp pick no matter what the new salaries were for the players lost and acquired. If they lose more than they gain, then the Bell salary comes into play and Steelers would get a 3rd most likely.

    there was an HBO real sports segment not too long ago where demaurice smith got grilled pretty hard and basically accused of not taking the best deal for the players...I work for a DOD contractor and their is a union presense where I work....I think its foolish to think that all who work on behalf of the union always have "john q union worker's" best interest in mind all of the time....its not crazy to think a briefcase or two fo cash cant be handed over in order for the union to make concessions the company wants and mask it by saying "well we got this though"=something the company doesn't really care about but can be made to look beneficial listen...managing/owning an nfl team and keeping it successful is as difficult as its ever been....players wanting raises...players finding raises somewhere else and having to replace them...having to satisfy star players while managing money and not crippling the overall health of the team...its tough...its not the nba with 12 guys...or mlb with 25.....its hard to keep a team competitive....its more difficult than ever.....I understand the management/ownership side....and I get it I also get the players side of the coin...and I'm not going to go over that again and rehash it...you know their beef....so its only natural that both sides, with solid points, are going to clash....and that's what were seeing but...its probably going to have to be the owners who are going to have to give something up to make things better.....and those guys don't like to do that...they don't like losing if you are going to make a big budget action movie...and you love the director you have....the script/plot...and you have a 125 million dollar budget...you think this film will bring in 325 mil at the box office if its done right.....you gonna go out and pay some up and comer, 25 year old, actor to star in it? pay him 3-4 million? "hey I think this guy is a breakout waiting to happen...this picture can launch him".....maybe.....but most guys are gonna go out and get the rock or Wahlberg and pay them 15-20 mil yeah conner did well....but the steelers didn't make the playoffs......and now brown got out and its probably going to be more difficult for them to make the playoffs....bell might have lost a few bucks but I bet it was just as personal...about respect....for a guy helping the steelers win while putting himself on the line 400x a year.......its probably worth it to him I still stand by what I said about the system being out of whack in the nfl...at the very least the franchise tag is outdated and needs to be done away with

    I'm actually considering attending a game or two, after spending most of 2016/17 turning games off in disgust. I had season tickets for about 15 years sandwiched around the Modell's defection to Baltimore, but haven't paid to attend a game in probably 10 years (just a couple free tickets).

    I was in the dark as usual, if I'm not on here or another sports site I'm on I miss a lot of news. Don't get any feeds or stuff on the phone. Was home and watching stuff on my DVR and Youtube, then watched 11PM news and was like Total shock, was not a fan of trying to acquire him last year when there was talk about him, and the price is pretty steep but it makes them a serious contender now and for years to come. With rest of AFCN in decline the future is bright. Now if we could just get Brady/Bill to retire. PS Good point on Calloway, the RB/WR/TE group is amazing. OL is strong, Baker is going to have a field day with this team.

    I am over the top elated with this signing. I was a tad bit down on also giving up Peppers but he's an up and coming, not an already there. If we sign Earl Thomas, great. I bet we go LB in the 2nd now, if we don't trade back into the 1st. S and CB will need addressed this draft as well. I can't remember when I was so excited to watch this team. I saw the disgust in Giants fans tweets...they didn't get enough. They got what the could to remove him, like the Steelers and AB, which makes the signing of OBJ last year all the more head scratching. Mayfield's mobility will help the playmaking ability of OBJ, not hinder it. 4400 yds and 33 TDs for him this season. When you can strip down your team to an over-the-hill QB and a stud RB, you do it, apparently.

    Jets or jet-skis!!! I'm sure bell knew at some point he wasnt getting that lost money back...I'm sure he was prepared for just about every scenario As I always say...fans look at stuff from a different perspective... completely different...alot of players and former players are congratulating him...it's about the system and pushing back on the owners who have it really good...the system is a hit screwed up and the owners love it There's a good portion of people that are rooting against bell and brown...probably alot...most civilian fans who work alot for a modest living ...but there's some people who are happy for brown and bell...most guys who have sacrificed their bodies and heads for these owners to make money hand over fist....those guys seem to be happy for bell and brown...they understand the game and business better than us I'm sure somewhere bell is smiling and happy knowing he and brown are gone and the Steelers have to go on without two stars....maybe the Steelers weather it just fine and don't skip a beat....but maybe they don't ...and if.they don't make the playoffs or win a playoff game over the next couple of years people will always have to wonder The nfl needs to do something about salaries and structure...the franchise tag system is outdated now and the whole thing is a mess

    Bell took a year off, lost 14.5 mil, lost the chance at making 18 mil more overall, lost the chance to be the greatest Steeler RB in history and be a sure fire hall of famer with his childhood team, his mom's team, all to gain 2 mil more guaranteed upfront. The steelers offer also an additional 15 mil in rolling guarantees whatever that means...In the case of New York..... more is less.... his tax bracket more than doubled so he’s likely to take home less than he would have with the Steelers offer.... even with more “guaranteed”. Idiot. Oh well at least he had time to produce his new album

    dude...i know youre an eagles fan...just relax...i dont like the giants all that much either lol they werent making this deal to "get better" short term...not all deals are meant to "get better" on that day the giants now have 6, 17, the 5th pick of the 2nd round and a 3rd they didnt previously have i believe they have a back to put up 2k total yards on a complete sheeet team....who is a bonafide stud/monster/whatever superlative you want to use they also have engram and shepard who arent all that bad lets say they really like haskins...they can sit there at 6 and nab him..if they want to really feel comfy i think they can probably use that 3rd and move up a few spots to secure him.... they could potentially land a defensive player at 17....or even a wr...who is younger, cheaper and on a better deal than beckham albeit probably not as talented.....if they do defense they could potentially land a quality wr prospect early in the 2nd that they have their eye on...or they could land two defensive starters at 17 and the 2nd round......alot of things they can do.....i dont think this deal was meant to make them better today

    They still have engram and sheppard...and the browns 1st rounder We've seen a couple of young qbs succeed rather quickly with some talent on offense....also I'm sure they plan on grabbing a qb here at 6....or somewhere The gm still has to pull the right strings...and the coaching is still a question mark....but I've seen worse "spots"

    Let's see...in Cleveland we have the Nick Chubb/Kareem Hunt duo setting up Baker Mayfield play action passing to OBJ, Jarvis Landry and David Njoku. Or OBJ is drawing double teams and opening things up for Chubb/Hunt...and everyone else. Any way you look at it, Browns offense loaded with scary good upside.

    well...full rebuild mode isnt bad if you have a young, 2nd year stud rb, and a new qb to grow with him......assuming the giants go qb at 6...they got a guy to put in the defensive backfield after losing collins.....its not a terrible move... i think this is a win/win....browns offense could be stackeddddd...i was gonna be high on njoku this year...now probably a little less but man him, odb and landry...with chubb...and who knows went hunt is available? wow anyway...ive noticed one guys whos name hasnt been mentioned...hasnt announced a deal...and hes been linked to a really savvy team that wont announce deals ahead of time(because thats just plain smart..no need to give away info before it can become official..ie anthony barr).......i feel like tate to the pats could be a reality once signings can officially happen

    Really? You said on this very forum that he won't go for less than a 1st rounder. He was a "knuckle head" then and is now. What changed?

    The Bucs had 4 quality wide receivers and 2 quality tight ends last year. Howard wasn't competing for snaps and targets with stiffs. Most teams don't have 3 quality receiving options much less 6. Howard might have also been the victim of poor coaching strategy. He is a beast. And you're probably right that he should have been featured more regardless of competition. He still was the 6th highest scoring fantasy tight end when he went on IR after week 11. And he had the second highest PFF grade for a tight end on the season mainly due to his 90.1 receiving grade (after an abysmal 61.4 overall grade his rookie year). Leftwich doesn't have much of a track record but Arians definitely didn't feature a tight end during his time in Arizona. But it was maybe just because he didn't have a quality tight end to feature. The Cardinals did use a 2nd round pick on receiving tight end Troy Niklas in 2014 which would indicate that Arians did want to feature a tight end in the passing game in Arizona. Any good coach is flexible in philosophy according to the players on the roster. Howard's best case scenario is that Arians will utilize him but want to cut/trade Brate (there has been a lot of chatter that Brate will be gone before his 2019 salary fully guarantees on March 17th). Over his entire career, Winston has been extremely effective throwing to tight ends (probably has something to do with his sidearm delivery). His stats are equal to any quarterback in the league when targeting tight ends. I think Howard is in line for a monster year.

    I've been reading this board for nearly 10 years. Sorry, but I have to ask you: why do you ALWAYS seem distort, exaggerate or inaccuratley restate what someone else says? You freaking do it all the time dude. Why would anyone here would even want to converse with you when it is almost a sure bet you will distort what the other person says in your zest to argue? Never fails. Just so you know... when you do that, it is extremely obvious and you lose any shred of credibility you might have once had.
