No....Even to re-signing Randall?

Clowney was impactful last season in SEA and has turned out to be reliable physically. He will get the Edge premium he deserves.

 

The remaining name that jumps out at me is Logan Ryan. After struggling for a couple years in Nashville he returned to his NE form last season with 4 INTs, 4 FFs and 113 tackles... 113 ! That is a massive total for a CB. Only question could be motivation since he bounced back in a contract year, but he was pretty consistent through his 4-years in NE.

$50mm minus the draftee signing reserve... Puts us just over $40mm.

Already commented on Everson...

Clay? Torn, but have to say I'm a, no. On the downside of career... not a good scheme fit... just can't get there.

Colt McCoy signs as backup for NY Giants.

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/19/giants-sign-colt-mccoy/

The fact that Colt is still around is somewhat amazing. 

I think he's a decent backup, if You're OK with one who you know won't ever be a legit starter. Ideally, you'd love to be grooming a starter, but few teams can. Is Colt better than Brady, Weeden, Kessler?

Well he's the vet backup/mentor now for Jones who they clearly believe is their guy... he's the Stanton to their Mayfield.

Tom Brady? No... but Brady Quinn, Wheezy and Kess? IMO, yes, I'd roll with Colt.

About 5 years into his NFL career his arm finally came back all the way from the nerve damage he suffered his Sr. year vs. BAMA in the BCS Championship.

Emmanuel Sanders signed away from 49ers by NOLA...

2-yr $16mm deal...

Nice get by Saints... a Sanders/Thomas duo is gonna stress out some DCs.

That seals the deal. I go for Brees as my 1st draft pick next year in FFL.

Pat yourself on the back...

The "$2.5" seems to be a typo... should be $25 million.

Have to guess that the size of Rivers' contract cost Pierre his spot... that and the guarantees were all in his 2019 pay. No dead money...

Eagles got Darius Slay from the Lions for only a 3rd and a 5th.. although Kevin Johnson will do a great job as our nickel this year, I'd have done that deal in a heartbeat

#1.. Jadaveon Clowney  DL

Got to admit..Been watching Seattle's Clowney rag doll a good 9'ers front on the Network.. Seattle wants him back and reports say they offered him 18M to do so (seeing now, Sea. offered 13M, but who can anybody believe?)...JC refused, to go test the FA market.. and watching 5 quarters (OT) of Hawks beating 49'ers on MNF ain't going to hurt his case... Some teams going to pay him..

A pretty good free agency period so far for us.  Of course we had so many holes and let so many players walk that we HAD to have a pretty good free agency period.   It takes the pressure off the draft a bit.  We need an OT (I say, LT), we need an edge rusher,  (two major positions)  we need a G and another LB'er (or 2).   Still plenty of work to do.

In a week's time we've taken OFF of our needs list:  1 OT (I say, RT), Backup QB, TE,  2 Safeties, and running downs MLB. (I guess we can include FB too, since we now have 2 of 'em).

Both aqib talib and desir were under 60 this past year. Josh Norman was a 45 and looked like he was mentally already coaching high school rather than playing on Sundays.

I hope we actually sign Brandon Carr who was a 66 this past season -- serviceable, but not worth the high-priced contract he was playing under.

I swear there was a thread on here yesterday that said the Browns signed CB Richard Sherman?

Billings is my under-appreciated signing favorite so far.  Kid has room for growth in his game and brings something to the table that makes me forget about investing mid to late round picks on interior 1gap pluggers.

I agree I’d rather have a known commodity in the dline rotation than break in a rookie who may or may not have it in year 1.

A lot of it vs the run I'm betting...

Clowney's Pass Rush numbers were down, I've read more than one account about 2020 being his best season vs. the run to date.
