    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    Would’ve liked to bring him in, but I’m not too upset. I don’t think that price is crazy, but between the QB uncertainty and the potential he wants a new deal I’m fine with not pushing all the chips onto the table. Sign me up for 11 months of our resident draft experts breaking down the WR...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    I don't think I want him if a new contract is necessary. Next year at 11.5 is arguably the single most appealing part of the whole rumor.

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    I hesitate to use the phrase 'have to' because we've seen this team succeed in many different iterations, not all of which had legitimate stars at the skill positions. But I borderline say this team will have to spend either a 2nd round pick and/or a contract north of 11 million per year for a...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    If he's absolutely getting traded no matter what, it could be a lot worse than a 2nd and Shenault. I don't think I'd want to give up the equivalent. And yeah Jax is probably far enough away that the timeline doesn't really make sense, but the AFC South isn't a murderer's row. I wouldn't want to...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    For the record I'm with you at least in part (I'm still hesitant overall as I said yesterday), but I'm not as concerned about the 34 season. A lot of players hit the cliff at this point, but it's not as though elite receivers playing well through 34 is entirely outlandish. Funny given their...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    Julio had more receptions last year in 7 fewer games (51 to 48), a much better catch %age (75 to 58.5), and higher yards per target (11.3 to 10.9). Agholor bested him in yds per catch (18.7 to 15.1) and TDs (8 to 3). There's plenty of caveats, obviously - Ryan > Carr (though they were very...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    Ignoring the mechanics of how it works, what is being reported is that a trade after June 1 incurs a dead money hit for this year of 7.5ish million, freeing up ~15 million for this year against the cap. Next year, they'd eat the dead money on the '22 and '23 years of the dealin, resulting in...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    Ah, right. I thought it was 11.5 at first but second guessed the more I looked at that page. For me, that certainly makes his remaining mileage a potentially worthy gamble for any team with the need at WR and available cap space. Have to think 1000 yard + guys are going to cost more than that in...

    Vrabel and Julio Down by the Schoolyard: Titans Get Jones

    I'm hesitant. On the con side, despite the excitement of the offseason, I don't think they're one player away. I might change that opinion if one of the QBs looks like they can give us top third of the league play this year, but I imagine I'm not alone in not being particularly bullish on that...

    Pats Uniform Change?

    Count me as not a fan of the move if true. Loved the blue on blue and in general think the Pats should phase out the silver as much as possible. (I admit I'm a weirdo that wants to see flying elvis on a white helmet.) The only tweak needed from the 2020 unis imo were the stripes on the away...

    Angels to release Albert Pujols

    I despise the Cardinals but have to hand it to them, just an all time great non-move letting him walk. Absolutely unbelievable player for them and the timing couldn't have worked out better.

    NFL Draft Rd.4-7: Everything Goes Gamethread

    If we're going RB, much more interested in a White replacement than a between the tackles back. I don't see much reason to try to upgrade on Harris/Michel until both their contracts are up. Carter to the NYJ hurts because it sounds like he would've been ideal, but what about the guys left on the...

    "learned English at the age of 17 and now has become fluent in football" is just a delightfully corny way to wrap up the St. Juste segment

    There's no way Bill makes that pick out of desperation. We wanted him. Have to feel good about that.

    Bill clearly valued him over at least Fields. That's enough for me.
