    I know most people are familiar..... but we did get a very underrated route runner here. Absolutely loved him draft time. Obviously It was just a little bit too much of a crush. But I’m excited. Just hope he is healthy.

    Pinned, let get in on this. I miss when the forum got together for this.

    KJ Hamler would work soooo well on this team. Literally still drool over the thought he can be got for a 2nd round pick..... mocks should be starting to come up soon.
  4. 2020 Draft Talk

    I’m about the biggest Hamler fan, but I still think you would be crazy to pass up on Reagor here.

    So basically like most teams with their runningbacks. so basically your saying try to do what Melvin Gordon did, when offered $10m a year, for multiple years, then lose out on that to sign a 2 year deal with only $13.5m guaranteed. its not that you refuse to sign them, it’s just you refuse to sign them to a huge contract. The position takes a ton of beating, and in reality yards per touch really isn’t that high. just makes sense to spend money elsewhere.

    eh, can’t trust spottrak or OTC for what they expect players to get paid. That’s just what they are guessing. Do you think he should be paid more than Aaron Jones? id say year value he is probably going to look for that 11-13 range. Probably won’t happen? Look at Melvin Gordon. and yes, the incentive is to play hard for the second contract on another team.

    The respect is there, but is also shown after so many carries, and beatings, the bruises.... RB’s wear down, and the young guys can come and take over and perform at the same level, and for a cheaper price. As a business owner, if you can get something new, at a cheaper price, that can do the same job for multiple years, vs something used, that the wheels might fall off of sooner than later, at a more expensive price, what are you choosing... holy commas

    Cook never said that? How do you know he never said that? Nobody knows what he’s asking for, is correct. Zac Hiller will be in charge of that. Dalvin Cook is his prized possession. Most likely will be looking to break the bank after a large season. A great season. I’m not sure where you are getting your values from, but there is no doubt he will most likely command top 5 money if he can. Keeping up with McCaffery isn’t my reasoning, it’s the fact of just signing RB’s to second contracts isn’t the greatest way to spend your money. Look what just turned of Todd Gurley. Zeke while special isn’t leading teams to Superbowls. Heck, go back to AP, he was a true workhorse and nothing came out of that. I just don’t value spending money on RB’s, but I don’t mind spending early draft picks on young fresh legs. Good runningbacks don’t have to bother coming here during free agency, pick them in the draft and they really don’t have a choice. Get a 20 year old coming out of college and they will love to have a shot to be the Vikings starting RB in an offense that loves the running game.

    Then why would you pay him top 5 RB money which he will probably command? You’d be better off just pairing another young RB out of college with Mattison. and of course they will comment on his injury history, look at his other two years. He almost made it one season without missing a game, before that, he only could make it a couple games.
  10. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Thing is, with these things happening..... it just might make Cook be affordable enough where it wouldn’t bother.... but with past injury history, I’d rather just target another 2-3rd round rb this year or next

    I wonder what Jimmy Smith is worth right now.
  12. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    Idk, we say Joseph was solid, but his eating double teams and stopping the RB behind the line or at the line really started downgrading this past year. Along with what seemed he was getting dinged up all to often. pretty much have been on board with letting him go. With his performance and age it’s tough to try and restructure and carry out his contract longer. Also tough just looking at what he got with the Chargers. lets just hope Pierce can get into shape and can do well.

    A little info from the Ravens fans on the Pierce Signing
  14. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    I’m going to guess the biggest objective of this offseason for defense will be to stop the run, this is the beginning of that.... and..... probably run the ball even better on offense, so this is still tbd.
  15. Moving On To 2020/2021.

    That’s what he is, I will say I very much approve of this one. run stopping with penetration. He actually eats up double teams.
