 feels pretty quiet compared to the past few years. Would have thought they'd have signed somebody on OL

Yeah, agree. The OL and CB market have been silent for the most part, time to find your deals now...

Now that Lev Bell set the pace at RB, it would be good to bolster depth at the spot. Tevin Coleman is my choice.

This makes me feel a LOT better about this signing. If Gipson can take out guys like Gronk, Ebron, Kelce, Henry, Howard (all on the docket this season) and we don't have to use other players to cover them - this is a great value signing for us.

We've never been able to cover TEs, save for that one season when we put AJ Bouye on elite TEs. If Gipson can do this, we're in a good spot defensively.

Gibson is a lot better in coverage than he is in run support.

A lot of speculation that Clowney is about to get traded...

Buffalo is the most common name popping up. There's an unnamed NFCW team as well - the Rams tried to make an offer during the season, but that never materialized.

Mark Ingram's contract was only 3/$15M. We definitely could have and should have done better than that.

Whoa! Hadn't heard that. What do you think we will get back in draft picks if this happens?

Ugh. What's the point of saving all of this money if we're NOT going to use it?

I get not spending money on bad contracts just because you can, but you damn well better start spending money on good contracts at positions of need.

What if Cal McNair isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer and plans to literally spend money on things since he heard spending money improves your team? "This new gold-plated Maybach is nice, but my team is terrible. People lied to me!"

If those rumors are true then the scenarios are...

Rams if they offer their first round pick, (31st overall).

Seahawks if Frank Clark gets traded elsewhere and they offer their first, (20th overall), OR they just swap Clark for Clowney straight up.

Arizona if they offer their second, (33rd overall).

Missed opportunity for sure.

It's probably all this talk of Gaines building thru the draft. They never intended on being players in FA after last year's pick with Colvin and all those misses on the OL. Well at least we will see what a healthy Seantrel Henderson can do.
