Aren't the Colts paying him whatever was in his contract either way? It's not like he's passing through Coaches waivers.I would not at all be opposed to Bill using his favored "special assistant so his old team pays him" pickup on him to work with the QBs, I thought he did well as OC last year, and as QB coach before that. Wentz and Brissett in particular had good years under him.
There is offset language, so if a HC or OC is fired and gets a new HC/OC job the new salary offsets the old. Bill has used a trick of not naming guys as OC so that they don't offset and the guy gets more money while the Pats pay less.Aren't the Colts paying him whatever was in his contract either way?

Minnesota sends a 2023 second-round pick and 2024 third-round pick to Detroit for Hockenson, a 2023 fourth-round pick and a 2024 conditional fourth-round pick.Vikes getting TJ Hockenson from the Lions.
Why aren't there more trades in the NFL again? I read an explanation some time back but can't remember what it said.
Idk but I imagine learning a playbook mid season for some positions can be harder than other sports
Thanks. It seems like the kind of thing the league would want more of. Hot Stoves in the other major sports are huge money makers.Also having to eat all the bonus money makes it tougher.
The obvious question would be "how much lower", but at a certain point you'd think so.Venturing off topic here, but do you think the NFLPA would agree to a lower team salary cap in exchange for guaranteed contracts?
The “I’m just a temporary embarrassed billionaire so I’ll vote to keep their taxes low for when I’m rich” is even more pronounced in a league where a lot of the guys most definitely think they are superstar material any day now. A lot think they’ll soon have that big guaranteed signing bonus themselves so why should they restrict it?The obvious question would be "how much lower", but at a certain point you'd think so.
My sense is imposing guaranteed contracts is more meaningful for fungible lower-level guys than for established stars who have enough market clout to get some guarantees. And the low-level guys certainly outnumber the established stars when it comes to a union vote, if those cats can be herded.
Feels rich for Claypool. Good young WR but i feel like a 2nd rounder is typically worth a really good sure thing type player.View: https://twitter.com/adamschefter/status/1587498595552567298?s=46&t=0tFb5UvyPEKSOR9dpJDp_A
Claypool to the Bears for a 2nd
It's the extra season that makes it worth it for Chicago, which has significant cap space for additions next seasonSo if it’s the Baltimore 2nd from the Smith trade going out, Chicago essentially traded 8 games of Roquan for a season and a half of Claypool. Not awful considering their #2 and #3 by receiving yards are E. St. Brown and Cole Kmet.
yeah a high #2 in a draft loaded with good skill position players, esp WR. Virtual guarantee that there is a better WR available at that pick than what Claypool offers.I think getting a second for Claypool, especially sending him to a team that is not going anywhere this year, is highway robbery. He’s a decent player and I understand the desire to help Fields’ development this year with another legitimate NFL caliber target given the dearth of them on their roster, but that’s a pretty big overpay for a player that should be their 3rd best target next year.
Edit: apparently it’s the bears 2 not the ravens - I’d be pretty upset if I were a Chicago fan.

You folks saw the Breer tweet, right?I mean the Bears did nothing, absolutely nothing, in the offseason to address their lack of skill players on offense and now they send a top-40 pick for Claypool? What a clownshop.
Jeff Wilson is the RB to replace Chase Edmonds in Miami.
Wow Hill and Hunt. Killer 1-2 combo Did they play together in KC?Chase Edmonds has been absolutely terrible. Like one of the worst RBs in the league. Nuts that Denver even took him.
This tells me Miami is making a move for a RB as well. Hunt or Akers would be a fit.
This is really smart for Jacksonville. They’re not going anywhere this year and get an absolute stud to pair with Etienne and Lawrence next year.Jags pick up Calvin Ridley from Atlanta.
The Trey Lance deal is also tied into the Tunsil deal. The Tunsil deal might go down as one of the best trades in the history of the game.
