  1. Let the Offseason Begin

    Okay yeah I guess I was exaggerating when I said he would need to be a top 3 TE right off the bat, but you are telling me he is going to be a top 3 TE within 3 years? Because the difference between the 5th best TE in the league (without looking at names) and the 15th best TE isn't that much - you are really only getting an advantage with the truly elite guys.

    Am I the only one that does not want Hockenson at 10? Have seen his name floated around quite a bit, but I am not finding the appeal. Unless he is going to be a top 3 TE right off the bat I just have a hard time seeing the value. Someone help me believe, so I am not pissed off if he is the pick lol.
  3. 2019 Schedule

    I went through an optimistic lens and got us to 9-7, pessimistic 6-10. Then I realized this year we really have no idea what we are going to get with a new HC and QB. So while I expect us to fall in the 6-9 win (nice) range, I would not be surprised if we were a wild card contender in the second half of the season.
  4. Grizmo's 2019 Mock Draft

    Mocks are all in good fun, and generally fall under "wishful thinking" for players to be there. There are certainly scenarios in which both of those players fall to the respective spots.
  5. 2019 NFL QB Draft Prospects

    If they have a QB to take in mind at 10, they should have no problem trading up for him. It would be nice to get our guy at 10, for sure. But if they really truly believe there is a franchise QB that is not Murray (assuming 1st pick), they would be idiotic to not trade up for him.

  7. Random Thoughts

    I believe Lomaxgr's point is that he was paid a fair amount up front, so while his average salary of $18m (and total $ of $90m) are the top in the league - the Browns will be on the hook for only $15m/year on the back end of the deal.

    Relax, I think you misread my post. You didn't even mention James...I was referencing what I had read (mostly on reddit, admittedly) from others who were saying James was injury prone because he has missed a lot of time in his short career. Edit: heck I was basically agreeing with your statement that season ending injuries can happen to anyone.
  9. Let the Offseason Begin

    I think it is just funny people bashing Ju'Wuan James for being injury prone because he had two season ending injuries, but praise Paradis for being on the field all the time with only one season ending injury. It's not like James was missing three games here, three games there, then missing a start - he got injured twice. It happens.

    I think the Flacco / Keenum deals should be judged separately from the FA acquisitions. If you consider their talent levels equal, I think the Flacco trade makes sense. Keenum contract was up after 2019, whereas we essentially have two 1 year options on Flacco's contract for 2020 and 2021. Sure they are expensive, but any QB that we brought in to start would automatically demand a certain $$ amount that I am sure would start around $18m anyway. This allows us the flexibility to pass on a QB at 1.10 this year, whereas if we had Keenum with an expiring contract we would almost NEED to pick a QB in the first two rounds this year. Our staff knows Paradis more than anyone, and there is a reason they didn't want to pay him for a multi year deal. Kuper's familiarity with James (was his Assistant OL coach last 2 seasons) helps me feel better about that signing. Jackson over Roby is one that I cannot find a way to make sense in my head. I liked Roby, and wish him success this year to get paid$$$ next offseason. And I hope that Fangio will use Jackson properly, which based on what I am reading is more Safety than CB - which still leaves us with a glaring hole at CB.

    Worried that Lock is going to entice Elway. I'm already coming to terms with it. I would much prefer to trade back to the late teens and pick up an extra 2nd or 3rd. Honestly we should be expecting anyone from the 1st 3 rounds to be starters - picking up two extras would be big for us.
  12. Let the Offseason Begin

    Paradis to Carolina for 3 / $27m. Apparently we had not offered a multi year deal. That kinda disappoints me, I would match that contract (with Mr. Bowlen's money, of course).
  13. Let the Offseason Begin

    Apparently not. My guess is Elway didn't come close to that offer for Turner. Seems like a massive overpay? Not saying the James contract isn't, but the Turner $$ wow'd me.
  14. Let the Offseason Begin

    I agree. I still expect us to grab a lower tier CB in free agency as well. While I am not thrilled about the $$ on these deals, that is just the cost of signing FA's these days. TE, IOL, and another CB (at low cost) will allow us to navigate the draft without having to worry about position as much. Extending players before free agency is more important than ever these days. Would like to see one or more of the following players extending this offseason: Bolles, McGovern, Shelby Harris, Chris Harris, Simmons. With the $$ FA's are getting though...I can't blame a player testing the market.

    Not quite sure who Neal Driscoll is, but he is saying that Broncos are set to offer Ja'wan James $11m/year contract.
