  1. Does Matthews survive the off season?

    Outside of Bradley Chubb, is there any pass rusher in this year's draft that you're confident will be a stud? Unless the answer is yes, there's no reason to make that trade up.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they took Nelson there. I know there were reports that they were in love with Baker Mayfield, so they could be in play there.

    I mean, that's probably true. I'm sure Cleveland has a general idea of who they want to select at this point. Probably just firming up their choice.
  4. Jets, Colts Swap 1st Round Picks

    If Buffalo (or another team) is willing to beat that kind of offer, that's not crazy to make at all.
  5. Jets, Colts Swap 1st Round Picks

    Buffalo be getting their offer ready. Probably the only team who has that kind of ammunition.
  6. Jets, Colts Swap 1st Round Picks

    I mean, it's not a big deal if they actually land a franchise QB. But they traded up to 3 not knowing whose available. For all we know, their top 2 QBs go in the first two picks. That's a HUGE gamble.
  7. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    I think it was more this was their Hail Mary to solve their CB situation, and they knew it was a long shot which is why the offer sheet came so late in FA. I think they had a pretty good idea the Bears would match the deal.

    I mean, it's one thing to make this trade when you know whose available. But they moved to the 3rd pick, not the 1st pick.

    Lulz. Jets just failed majorly. Good work Colts!
  10. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    My question is why would the Packers extend an offer they know will be matched?
  11. Does Matthews survive the off season?

    Except the only feasible way to really improve your EDGE situation is through the draft. Quality pass rushers don't become available in FA, and teams certainly aren't open to trading theirs.

    Way to go out on a limb there...
  13. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    Why would the Packers do that? What do the Packers have to gain by helping out the Bears?
  14. Lulz. You can spin anything to put things into your own personal perspective, can't you? As you probably remember, the Vikings used a poison pill provision to sign Steve Hutchinson away from the Seahawks back in 2006. Since that incident, the NFL has taken out the ability to poison pill a contract. So before we get too far, let's remind ourselves that there is no way to legally "poison pill" the contract outside of natural structure. So unless the Packers wanted to severely front-load the contract, the Packers' offer was about as good as it get. I'll get to that more in a second. The Bears had pretty much said they were going to match any and all offers on Fuller, so their matching comes as no surprise. The surprise was how quickly they matched the deal. This pretty much confirms they were going to match any contract on him. Right now, assuming the contract Fuller signed is similar to what Spotrac is reporting makes him the 5th highest paid corner in terms of AAV. Does anyone truly believe that Fuller is a top 5 corner right now? And it's even more concerning when he missed the entire 2016 season with what was supposed to be a minor injury. Given his career injury history outside of that, it's not a huge risk but it's a concern that needs to be noted. But I wanted to get back to his contract, more importantly the structure of it. I'll provide the link to the structure at the bottom of this post. I'm not going to bring it over to you. His Year 1 cap hit is $6.5M, which is a rather modest price tag for a starting CB. He brings home $20M in Year 1 and the Packers/Bears get a reduced cap hit. That's a good thing for both teams. Unfortunately, in Year 2 his cap hit jumps to $13.5M, which is equal to his dead cap if they were to release him prior to that. So at best, he's being kept around because the Bears/Packers wouldn't save any money. So for all intents and purposes, his 2019 salary is "guaranteed" since the only way the Bears would cut him is if he was a toxic contract in the locker room. That makes his "effective" guarantees closer to $29M, rather than the $18M that was reported. It isn't until 2020 that the Bears can actually benefit from releasing Kyler Fuller. The Packers made a very competitive offer, and the Bears matched it. No shame in that. http://www.spotrac.com/nfl/chicago-bears/kyle-fuller-14423/
  15. Need one of these CB's - the best of the rest

    I'm not saying I'm pleased with it, but there's still time to improve the CB situation. It's the CB situation combined with the pass rush situation that has me beginning to worry.
  16. Need one of these CB's - the best of the rest

    Wanted to dump this in here...
  17. 2018 NFL Draft Discussion

    Mad? No. Feel like we're wasting some of our resources? Absolutely. I can't fathom going into the 6th round, and the only positions we've addressed our CB, EDGE (minimally), and WR. At some point, we're probably going to be looking at improving our IOL, drafting a toolsy TE, and potentially OT depth. Right now, I'd like to see EDGE in the 1st, WR/CB in the 2nd, early Day 3 we grab another combination of CB, EDGE, TE, and IOL. And then whatever in the latter part of Day 3.
  18. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    Speaking of details, have we even heard Jimmy Graham's contract yet?
  19. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    I don't think there's any reason to think it couldn't be leaked, whether it be by the Bears, Packers, or Fuller's agent.
  20. I mean, it can be a big picture thing. Remember, picking at the first of every round is more valuable than picking in the middle or the bottom. I'm not saying that was the Packers' sole motivation for moving Randall, but it's a part of the trade. The Packers now pick first on Day 3 unless they decide to move it.
  21. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    I don't think it ties up our cap space, but I might be wrong. One of the finer points of the CBA I'm not overly familiar with.
  22. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    Nope. It's either match the Packers' offer sheet or not.
  23. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    I think everyone does. But I think it had to have been at least a very creative offer to keep the Bears from matching it, otherwise there'd be no point in even throwing an offer sheet out there.
  24. Packers Sign Kyle Fuller to Offer Sheet

    You should be used to it by now. Packers sign top FA available? The Packers overpaid for them. Packers get a discount on top FA? Packers didn't get a big enough discount. If there's anything I've learned, some people will always find ways to complain.
