    And honestly I'd be fine with however they decide to ultimately approach it. If they decide they want to completely tank for a year after TB12 retires because they wanted to put a better team around him for his last 2-3 years, that is fine by me. But if they want to remain competitive the next year in a way that teams like Denver and Indy weren't after Manning left, then I'm ok with that approach too.

    Yeah, actually that's not that bad of a thought. I mean, it's going to suck one way or the other. I wonder whether Belichick feels any responsibility to Josh not to leave him with a mess or whatever their agreement is.

    Seems like a perfect opportunity for one of the teams with money given that Green Bay has some issues with the cap. You could front load a contract with no guaranteed money in a way that makes it very tough to match. Allison looked really talented at points last year. I'm really surprised they didn't pony up the extra million for a second round RFA tender on him.

    Could depend on the QB situation. If they think they have an heir - don't plan for a huge cap hit for Brady post-retirement (unless said heir is making peanuts and you can absorb it). If you don't have an heir, tank and pick a QB.

    This is just an interesting observation I came across at over the cap (https://overthecap.com/salary-cap/new-orleans-saints/) when curious about the Saints Cap.

    But the Pats are currently dead last in dead money $706,368
    While the league average is $9.5M and the median is $5.6M.

    This is all due to the time of year and if the Pats cut someone to clear space their number will rise but it is amazing at how many bad contracts are signed in FA as we are seeing these last few days.
    The only other team under 1M is the Bears.
    The Giants lead the way with $33,656,400 thanks in no small part to Odell.

    Former Eagles' WR Golden Tate is signing with the NY Giants, per source.

    LOL. Always lip service to winning, and it's about the cash. Enjoy NY.

    Guess they figure it's not worth it to totally bottom out while the Jets are making headlines. The money's not completely crazy and things can turn around quick.

    But it's all just pissing against the wind without an answer to the QB situation.

    In the "Gettleman is an awful GM" conversation, don't sleep on the Panthers eating 14.5M in dead cap to get off the Matt Kalil contract Gettleman gave him 2 years ago (5 years 55M, 31M guaranteed for a guy coming off a lost year to injury that followed multiple years of being not good at football).

    Golden Tate on his upcoming free agency: "If I don't stay here, I want to go to a team that has a chance. My years are limited. I don't have time to go someone trying to rebuild. I need to go somewhere with solid pieces and they can win now."

    See, I read this and immediately get the "if the offers are comparable" subtext. Maybe no one came close to what the Giants offered.

    Wow, don’t like, especially if they keep Roberts over Nelson.

    The Pats have to sign Nelson for next to nothing now, right?

    Hunt gets 8 games. Browns offense will be scary good in the 2nd half as long as they can protect Baker.

    Yeah. I see some settling in bumps and bruises while they figure out what all they have and their strengths, but once they gel they should be a pretty mean football team.

    Corbett might be a significant downgrade, and they have question marks at both tackle spots. It won't surprised me if the OL is a lot worse in 2019.

    The back 7 on their defense is pretty bad, though their offense might be good enough to compensate.

    Titans going with the 2 headed oft-injured highly drafted disappointments QB situation.
    Dolphins I'd assume are drafting someone? Or maybe BORTLES?

    Poor Brian Flores. Not that Tannehill was any great shakes, but the Phins are really starting from almost zero on the offensive side of the ball in terms of skill positions.

    Good on the Dolphins for finally moving on... I wonder if they might have a deal in place for Josh Rosen.

    I'm sure he was involved in this decision. Gives Flores a fresh start.

    Having seen Tannehill's body of work, I'd agree with this and think it's easily the better option. Now he can Rosen or tank and maybe have a real chance besides 7-9 or 8-8. Of course, Rosen may not be an upgrade, but at least there's hope and something new to work with and develop.

    Would AJ McCarron make sense for Miami? Or are they in tank mode and if so, is he too good for them?

    How exactly would a QB about to be on his third team in less than a year that has completed 8 passes since 2015 not be conducive to tanking?

    First cut is the deepest?

    "They don't have fun there. There's nothing fun about it. There's nothing happy about it. I didn't enjoy any of my time there, you know what I'm saying? It made me for the first time in my life think about not playing football because I hated it that much." - Marsh after being cut by N.E.
