  1. Cutting all the bottom of the roster guys is a rookie GM mistake. Since those spots (up to 51) get counted at min salary whether filled or not. Just remind people at the start and they'll only cut the guys they hate, not just the cheapos.
  2. ESPN rated Hubbard as the best run defending 4-3 DE in the league last year.
  3. Yeah, Bates isn't going anywhere. He plays at a high level and deserves top safety money. And the team has the cap space and not a lot of star power on defense. Bates will get his 15 mil apy deal. Question is what they give Hubbard. He's probably a 9-10 mil apy guy but might want more.
  4. Yes, the following year should be included for cap compliance. Teams typically manage their cap for the current and next 2 years, not worrying much about three years out and later.
  5. I'd suggest for waiver claims to do it like the real NFL does. Team with best original draft position gets dibs on all the players it wants. Much simpler than what we had and more realistic too. Also note that players claimed from waivers come with their current contract, not vet min for their service. So claiming a Josh Rosen means you have to pay what his prior team negotiated.
  6. Next season is ending later than ever due to the extra game. I think a couple weeks after the Super Bowl is early enough to start. That would push the draft portion back to the middle of March which would be good as several pro days will have been held by then.
  7. Week 1 will be a good test. Vikings are looking to bounce back from bad season in 2020, especially on defense. Burrow should give them a test. Westbrook is coming off injury or he'd be more in demand. A multi-year deal might be worth it but if he only wants 1 year, it better be prove-it.
  8. For big guys who have trouble keeping weight on, it's usually not that they burn huge amounts of calories but that their appetite doesn't require that many and they have to force themselves to overeat. Thus, there are plenty of former linemen who have dropped 50 lbs or more the first year of retirement by simply stopping eating when they're full.
  9. Hopkins had the Bengals highest O-line score in 2019 but he was still the 26th rated center in the league.
  10. Price has a fully guaranteed contract as a former 1st round pick so I doubt they cut him. He probably has offset language though if he is cut. Agree Hopkins probably starts on PUP. His injury came in an NFL game so he might have to go to IR instead. Agree it's likely the team keeps 10 on the O-line. We aren't going to carry 7 WRs again so that might be the cut instead of TE, depending on preseason. If the league uses the same roster and PS rules as last year, we can activate an extra O-lineman on Sundays and carry a vet or two on the PS. Spain seems like a lock to make the roster,
  11. It wouldn't surprise me if the Bengals went D-line then O-line Something like: Round 2 - Barmore/Basham/Ojulari Round 3 Little/Radunz/S Brown Round 4 Cleveland/Green/T Smith/ D Brown
  12. Jenkins is a better player than Cosmi but probably not suited for LT when Williams gets hurt. Reiff would be the likely cover for Williams in 2021 but not longterm. I wouldn't be shocked if they went with an interior lineman like Davis, Dickerson, or Humphrey.
  13. My guess as to what the Bengals will actually do: 1 Jamarr Chase 2 Liam Eichenburg 3 Milton Williams 4 Ben Cleveland 5 Chuba Hubbard 6a Joshua Kaindoh 6b Jose Borregales 7 Paddy Fisher
  14. Falcons should take Pitts. They can't trade Julio now for 2021 picks due to the dead money hit.
  15. FWIW, Peter Kings says he thinks the Bengals will pick Chase but he'd pick Sewell plus a guard at 38.
