It's just a terrible deal no matter how you slice it. The only saving grace is that we're pretty good with cap space now that we don't have a huge money QB on the roster.

Sigh...

Yeah that's how I feel giving $6M/year with $10M in guarantees to a guy about to be out of the league for PED's who can only block.

If he gets suspended, we recoup money.

No it's how this board feels when you come in here with your reactionary extremely one sided takes. If you don't like it and it isn't pretty, it must be terrible. Hate seeing these twitter takes on this board.

Boyle being an A Grade Blocker and C/C+ Pass Catcher, makes him one of the more valuable Tight Ends in the league. That skill ratio is an asset. Especially to us, with young LJ8 at the helm.

His ability to slide into a FB hybrid role is making this one easier to understand. He’s versatile and for a team who will really try to smash the run game down defenses throats. I’m more accepting of the numbers. 

 

10 mill guaranteed. That’s not much if we loaded the first two seasons with that.. I haven’t looked at the last two pages yet to see true numbers

Exactly. It seemed like the team was more comfortable using him there last year, and often opted to not activate Ricard.

No reason, he can't hate the move. I just disagree with it being terrible.

It's a B move to me. I think he fills a key role in the offense, that we wouldn't be able to find someone else to do as well. But, it's cap allocation that could have gone to a playmaker, which he is not.

What playmaker? Do you have some FA in mind?

That’s what I keep reading into this. He’s a nasty blocker and if we do go ahead to draft Jacobs. The offense will be just fine.

add in one vet wr or another rookie. Let’s be honest, we never forecasted LJ to throw 4,000 next year. We just can’t have a big void where defenses can just pile 8 guys in the box. The running game has always been important to Baltimore and I’m excited for next season. Curious who leads the rb carousel this season

That's what's so great about our offensive foundation. Defenses go heavy, our TEs can torch them. Defenses go light, our running game can gash them.

I really want to add a legit burner to open things up too. Marquise Brown, Andy Isabella, Emanuel Hall. They'll stretch those defenses out and put the fear in them.

Alright fine Nick Boyle is our starting TE. That's kinda sad considering we dumped 2 high picks into the position last year. But I guess since those guys can't block we'll be getting rid of them in 2 years for more blocking TE's now?

If we go back throughout the history of this forum you say 80%+ of the moves we make are bad and get all upset over them.

Wonder how a team that makes that many bad moves consistently has been under .500 once in 11 years. Funny how that works. Especially with a coach in Harbaugh leading them - who you constantly spout off about being overrated too.
