JJ Watt wasn't a Free Agent, as in, wasn't a Free Agent if not resigned or franchised by the deadlines.Keep in mind many teams, including this team, need to wait until the league year actually changes over before they have cap money to spend.
Also, JJ Watt.
The context was someone claiming that there weren't yet any big free agent signings. There are two basic free agent types right now, and the type that has the vast majority of likely signees is currently unavailable to be signed.
What I meant was that the available street FA (other than Watt) market has been slow and that I ANTICIPATE a slow regular FA.I was responding to someone saying "no one has been signed yet" and implying it meant the market was slow. The only way for anyone to be signed "yet" is the scenario you've just described because it's still technically the 2020 season.
I don't think i'm getting bent out of shape over anything. If it were Crawhammer or Biffins trashing BB that's is an example of me getting bent out of shape.
I'm replying to your posts with my opinion and stating why I believe BB is moving on from Cannon.
Why? If he shows in OTAs and in Mini-Camp that the year off has helped him return to his 2018 form, he won't be cut or have his contract touched. That cap hit for a starting RT who's not on a rookie contract is more than a bargain.
No one major has been signed yet at all. I suspect a slow free agency is coming
I agree and I'm not saying you were wrong or anything like that. I was just adding context. With many UFAs likely to hit the market in the next week or so, I would expect the "street free agent" market to be slow. They still don't know the CAP, or who will be franchised, etc.The context was someone claiming that there weren't yet any big free agent signings. There are two basic free agent types right now, and the type that has the vast majority of likely signees is currently unavailable to be signed.
So "JJ Watt" was the appropriate response there.
