    Well. looks like Gruden wanted MORE competition in the QB room. We now have a vet and 2 young, big armed QBs behind the franchise. Cook is gonna be pissing in his water bottle for sure.

    I was just saying in the Free Agency tread that I'm happy we didnt give up a mid round pick for him like a bunch wanted to do.

    The Eagles just released Kendrick. So happy we didn't trade a mid round pick for him like a bunch of you were begging for.

    Of course they would now. The market is non existent. But before this we don't know what they were seeking and I bet it was more than most teams were willing to pay a safety in this climate as I described above. Now teams are set unless someone goes down with an injury. I don't buy that Boston and Vaccarro are part of the Reid and Kap drama.

    It doesn't have to be super high for them to get snubbed. Agents try to comp when seeking deals and they are most likely comping what the top safeties got last year. If the majority of teams aren't valuing safeites that high this year then they sit on the market while the teams address their needs some other way.

    I don't think it's politics with Vaccaro and Boston. I think it's a perfect storm of the NFL putting less value on a hitter over the middle, the players still having 2017 comps in mind when looking for deals, this being a good safety draft and teams believing they can get bargains on lesser players at the position.

    You're right about everything having to pan out but that is no different from any team at this time and if something happens that makes our depth take a hit then we'll make a move but we only have so much money and we need to save it for those type on situations.

    I think they learned from Bowman last year and will learn from DJ this year. I don't think Bowman is in the cards this year if he hasn't signed by now. 2 possibilities could be he waits til training camp to sign to skip the offseason stuff some vets do or we sign him before cuts if we don't like what we see. Both I think are long shots though with the # of guys we have on the roster barring injury.

    The only names there I see possibly improving the team at this point are breeland when he is healthy in a few months and Breaux but he is getting heat from teams looking for starters. I don't think we need to add anyone else from this free agent crop. Keep mining for udfa guys that could help and I think we're set till cuts barring injury.

    which CB and TE are you thinking?
  12. 2018 Draft Recap Thread

    We brought in a pretty good ST coach that know his stuff and has been around. I'm sure there is a reason the Eagles punter is still a free agent teams in camps, some with multiple punters on the roster. But I respect your opinion on Duke. Maybe he is a gem and maybe not but it definitely is a mis-step not to draft him at that point imo. We can disagree. And using punter avgs isn't a great convincer to me. I'm be happy we went for a kid with talent and a big leg that we control for pennies for 4-5 years that the coaches can mold.
  13. 2018 Depth Chart...How do you see it?

    Yeah it will be tough sledding with the twins and Martin. If all come into camp hungry then I don't see a lot of room. I think we all want a bigger back as an option but to beat those guys out he'll have to be better quality than a tryout or walk on most likely. Maybe we pick someone else up after cuts down the line.

    I didn't start it and tried to head off and defuse it at the beginning but it wasn't to be.
