3 less wins we would be in a much better spot to draft our QB of the future.
Belichick should draft Lance and Sign a Vet.
Would love to see a trade up for Wilson but I’d be cool with Lance.

Tight end Jared Cook was set to become a free agent when his contract voids later this month, but the Saints moved to drop him from their roster ahead of that point.


Wednesday’s transaction wire shows that the Saints have terminated Cook’s contract. The procedural move ends his run with the team after two seasons and the contract was structured to leave $2 million of dead money on the cap for 2021.

If you're Cook and Matthews, you've got to be doing some serious second guessing about your decisions a couple of years ago.

Another 30-something TE. How about the team getting younger. Enough with these dinosaurs. We might as well call Ben Watson since he still lives in Boston.

We have Asiasi and Keene in the pipeline. We can use a veteran....I don't want to overspend on a premier TE in free agency. Ideally, I'd like someone like Rudolph...or even Delaine Walker....or even Tyler Eifert...or Gerald Everett.... just to get back to the bare minimum of a professional TE that can do 35 receptions, 500 yards, 3 TD's, and block. Then we see what we have in the 2nd year kids.

And save $$$ to spend at WR, DT, LB, as well as retaining our own FA's.

His fumble cost the Saints a trip to the NFCCG.

The TE shelf is bare and whoever they sign will be a 3 down player getting most of the snaps. Would be a priority signing for me. The value approach has run its course here. QB future is the draft and WRs can get second tier. The rest of my FA $ are for front 7.

Still don't understand how we ended up winning some of those games. Arizona, Jete, Vegas all were weird games. 4-11 would have got us to top 6-7 I believe.

Had Cam played like he did even after the 49ers debacle, we'd have won more games.. It was his crappiness that cost us so many

The Giants have, as expected, released receiver Golden Tate, per multiple reports.


Tate’s release creates $8.5 million in cap and cash savings for the Giants. However, they’ll take a $4.7 million cap charge to get him off the books, arising from his remaining signing bonus allocation of $2.35 million per year in 2021 and 2022.

Idk that Watt contract for a 30+ yo with an injury history makes me wonder how many bargains or the extent of the bargains. I'll believe it when I see it. Can't wait.
I think given how many teams are in cap hell, significantly in cap hell. I think its inevitable, but don't get me wrong, I was shocked at that contract.
I think it will end up being a lot of one year lower than norm deals. Then a feeding frenzy again next year with a significantly larger salary cap expected.

I think if Bill does this right the next two year's FA periods can drastically improve this roster and put us on a fast track back to SB contenders.
