I would expect a contract fairly soon with Harris, if he’s not being traded. 

The Vikings, I believe, have only used the franchise tag twice, with Greenway and Kleinsasser, and neither player actually played on the tag. 

I forgot that Kleinsasser got the tag. Someone like him probably never will again.

 Mid to late pick?

I can't believe that.

It makes to sense to want\accept that while taking the risk and tying up resources. It more likely late 2nd or bust for Rick.

I'd be happy with a 3rd round pick for Harris.

A mid to late round draft pick seems low. I wouldn’t part with anything less than a 2nd round pick, unless it’s a necessary cap move. Harris is a good player just entering his prime. While I realize the position isn’t valuable, I’d rather not turn over the entire secondary outside of Smith.

If he were to leave in FA he would've garnered a 3rd/4th round 2021 compensatory pick. That is the starting point of a trade conversation for me.

I'd agree with this. I'd take a 3rd this year and if we can't get at least that I'd keep him.

Comp picks are far from a guarantee as we've found out and a pick this year would help us more now than a pick next year

Given that we only have Smith/Hughes/Hill/Ant as our good DBs ... im more interested in keeping him at the moment.

If and when another good DB gets added, it could open me to trading Ant at "fair market value" being mid 3rd, but until then low 2nd is the price tag.

I think someone's giving Ian's source a smokescreen, as the move wouldn't make any sense.  The only thing that makes any sense is that they felt they could get a long-term extension done with him, which is exactly what happened in the Greenway and Kleinsasser situations.

Stay tuned...

 

If they do that, then it certainly means (at least to me), that they are going all-in on acquiring more draft picks to help remake their defense for the future, and then use that saved money to extend their own guys, as well as bring back Everson/Linval, and maybe some more mid-level FAs to compete.

Browns have 2.41, 3.74, and 3.97.

I'd take one of the 3rds (even the late one) and at least 1 pick in 2021.
