  2. Josh Jones wants to be traded

    Well, he has 2 years under contract for an average of about 900k. He has value if a team thinks that they can get him to work. The problem is, he hasn't really shown that well in his limited time. It also says something when he was beaten out for the job by Kentrell Brice and Tramon Williams, was fighting for PT with Raven Greene and Ibraheim Campbell, and his team signed Adrian Amos rather than rolling with him as a starter. I understand his frustration, but I also think he has a higher opinion of his skills than he should. If HaHa was only worth a 4th, and is easily superior, what exactly can we get for Jones?

    If you go back to the original Waldo formula thread, we criticized and over-analyzed that as well. So, don't be discouraged by what looks like hostility. We are trying to understand and fine-tune the method, and hopefully make it better. I don't recall any of the guys that pass that threshold failing in the league, for on the field reasons. Are these the NFL or college receiving numbers? If they are NFL numbers, what do the same set of players show if we only use their college production? Then, is there a factor that makes Greg Jennings an 11.5 and Chad Jackson a 0? Or are we just determining which players were the best draft value? To compare to Waldo's formula: In a re-draft of 2006, Greg Jennings should have been a first round pick, that plays out in stats and player ranking across that draft class. It is also shown in the results here. In a 2011 re-draft, Justin Houston should have been a first round pick, that also plays out in stats and player ranking. The difference is Waldo's formula predicted it. Is this a predictive formula, or can it be made into one?

    It would also likely depend on what McCoy is willing to sign for, he was set to make $13 million, and his lowest compensation (adding all contract and bonus money) in a season was 6.8 million in his third year. The guy has been getting paid, and will probably continue to get paid. If spotrac is right, and I am reading it right, there are 13 teams with more than 20 million in space. Cutting Daniels gets us to 16 million. I don't see it happening.

    We got a Kelly Bryant from Clemson, so QB isn't dire. https://www.kansascity.com/sports/college/sec/university-of-missouri/article229387349.html Okwuegbunam has battled a shoulder injury since MU’s upset win over No. 13 Florida on Nov. 3, which also played a factor in his reasoning. He missed the last four games of the season and was limited throughout spring practices while he rehabbed. Neither he nor Missouri have publicly commented on the specifics of his injury. Mizzou coach Barry Odom said Okwuegbunam’s draft decision would have been harder had he been healthy last season. His size, pass-catching ability and speed — he claims to run a 4.50-second 40-yard dash, elite for the position — would have had scouts salivating. But the injury and depth of the position in this year’s draft posed major hurdles. Now, if all goes well, Okwuegbunam could be the top tight end in next year’s draft. At MU’s recent pro day, football super-agents Jimmy Sexton and Tom Condon of CAA both went out of their way to introduce themselves to Okwuegbunam, in hopes of representing him next year.

    Spriggs is not what we hoped when we drafted him. I think some of the issue is injuries have hampered him. He is also behind two tackles that are really good. I think there were sky-high expectations and average results, also Bakhtiari got really good, and he is seen a lesser than he really is.

    IMO she looks like a myspace angle specialist and when you see her from the shoulders down she goes from, maybe a little out of shape to obese.

    We aren't married to Turner, at all. Look at this contract. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/green-bay-packers/billy-turner-14477/ We probably don't want to eat that dead cap in year 1 or 2, but after that, it is pretty darn cheap.

    No, that is me. I was at work and couldn't go to Nashville that weekend. I would also know that, that wasn't the Packers' pick though.

    Remember when Jerry Glanville bet Favre that he couldn't throw it to the upperdeck? Maybe someone bet Freeman that he couldn't throw the ball out of the stadium, he was just stupid enough to try it during a game instead of practice.

    What question? I think I have seen women that look like all of these except for maybe the Russell Wilson one.
