  1. Season Expectations pt. 1: Amari Cooper

    I’m gonna co-sign WH’s 85/1200 mark. The first two basically fall in line with his career catch rate (60%), YPR (14), and what I’d project his usage to be (9 targets a game). The TDs are the tossup to me. I’d be a little surprised if he hits 10 honestly. I’ll say 8.
  2. Season Expectations pt. 2: Byron Jones

    A little worried about the hip here- important body part for high end CB play. Otherwise he’s phenomenal If we let him hit the open market next year I swear to god

    I forget how it works, but 3rd round picks are the only ones with any amount of room for negotiation on in their rookie deals under the current CBA. Something about the guarantees or incentives. Everyone else’s deals are basically set in stone, only 3rd rounders have gray area.

    https://www.profootballfocus.com/nfl/players/lael-collins/9719 #31 overall OT, not RT They don’t use the color green for total trash players edit: they were very low on him in ‘17 IIRC

    @Matts4313, do you know if that "pressures" stat means combined sacks/hits/hurries or just hurries? If it's the former, then 3 a game for a RT isn't bad. If it's the latter? Yikes

    Even if he doesn't improve he's still an 8-figure/year type of player on the open market. I mean did you see what Ja'Wuan James got? He may have gone undrafted, but that was a unique situation. AFAIK most teams had him graded as a first round player. Some may still project him as a Pro Bowl guard. Unless he suffers a serious injury I think he's a lock to get somewhere in the $10-11M/yr range from somebody just by holding serve.

    Free was the obvious weak link on a complete juggernaut of an offense. Collins might be marginally better, but if 9/11 starters outside of him were studs then he’d stick out a bit more. I’m not saying trade him, he could definitely show out in a contract year. But we’re for sure not re-signing him.
  8. Northland's Reality Check

    Horrible news. Your perspective is always valued and will be missed if you have to understandably take some time off. In the same vein, we’ll always be here. Good luck

    Yeah he’s pretty much been a wash on 2016 Doug Free IMO I think we leave our OTs- both of them- on islands in pass pro more often than the majority of teams, but I don’t know that for a fact. He certainly gets help at times.
  10. 2020 Draft Prospects Thread

    Inevitably wrong hot take: Tua, Herbert, and Fromm all go Top 5
  11. Elliott detained after Vegas scuffle

    This. It’s starting to feel like we may have given Zeke a little too much benefit of the doubt two years ago. This isn’t just some little deviant jokester, this is a man engaging in behaviors that would rightly deeply concern any friend, family, or associate.
  12. Who will be the breakout player in 2019?

    Gallup, Chido, and C-Will seem like the best bets. It would go a long, long way to see those three specifically take their games up a notch. This lineup would have a lot more strengths than weaknesses on both sides if they’re able to do so.
  13. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    That's just the nature of the beast though. And Lewis is strange name to have on there, better we chance we trade him before the end of his deal than re-sign him IMO, but we'll see. Something to keep in mind here is that no QB drafted after 2012 has started in a Super Bowl. I think it's fair to wonder if we've hit some sort of wall in development at the position, how good these 2013-onward QBs even are and what the league'll look like without Brady, Brees, Ben, Rivers, eventually Rodgers and Ryan. $30M/year will quickly become the going rate for a QB who isn't completely useless.
  14. Dak, the QB of the future or not.

    I think it depends how high the cap gets. If it's in the $240M range by 2022 or 2023, then cap hits for Dak in the 30-35 range won't hurt so bad. However, the annual cap growth percentage slowed down in the beginning of the current CBA relative to the prior one. Your friendly remember that this is BS and the cap shouldn't exist.

    Cooper feels like a potential mid-season extension. Both sides have good cases, need a few more weeks of 60 YPG production out of him to get his side to capitulate
