Looks solid but any mock that has us dumping Kareem Hunt gets a 😭 from me

Kareem Hunt trade is really bad.
 

I like the free agent signings though. That is REALLY good.

 

Draft is great too. Anything with Winfield leading our secondary makes me happy.

Excellent draft starting to look forward to the off season

If the draft went this way, I'd be happy. The offseason signings are nice; however, I don't trust/want Bulaga at his age and injuries for that price, and it makes no sense to trade Chad and Kareem for nothing.

I'd rather extend Kareem cheap--4/$32 mil was a bargain before, and now it's probably 3/$15 mil. He's elite, young, we need him to pair/insure against injury with Chubb, and I like the idiot 🤷‍♂️.

Chad just seems like you are cutting him. He played pretty well late in the year. He's on a rookie contract. Maybe I'm being unrealistic, but he seems like good depth at DT/LDE. It probably isn't a big deal either way, and if it was for a late 4th I would have said nice trade 😂.

Jimmie Ward would be nice and I like the position flexibility. He would be great in our secondary. I still like Randall too if we can get him cheap based on this year.

Becton and Wilson...whoa nelly. Me rikey, especially with trading down. 

You grab a lot of dudes I'm hot to trot for. Highsmith is a nice proverbial sleeper, and both DT are nice value. As if this moment, this looks possible as far as player rankings (though I don't know if Denzel Mims will be there that late). Nice work.

tl;dr time to do your walkthemock: Ranking Code:nRdZLMz2

How do we look going forward cap wise to keep Garret, Ward, Chubb, Baker etc? If we can do that I love it

We dont have to pay anyone of those guys until 2022. So we have a long way to go. 

Id get chubb done first on the cheap, then myles, then baker and ward. 

As long as we dont sign any stupid contracts we have a lot of cap flexibility, we can cut obj, jarvis and bitonio for no loss by the tiem those guys roll around. At this stage we will be fine.

Chubb is not going to sign on the cheap.  Early doesn’t get you a discount after what he has shown, and what I expect him to continue showing.

Also I hope you have replacements in mind when you cut Jarvis OBJ and Bitonio.

Right.... street free agents routinely replace pro bowlers adequately all of the time.

He thinks we are the patriots and can simply just replace OBJ and Jarvis.
