I love the idea of
- D PAYNE/Levi
I think you can move that DL around and get REALLY BIG- in goal line you could rock Rookie, Buggs, Commish, Paschal and even stand Hutch up at SLB and be BIG…
You can shrink down to Hutch, Paschal, Commish, and Harris in Nascar and have all sub 4.8 guys on the DL…
I like Barnes, Board, and Rodrigo all being here next year, and if we can get Board for 2 years and 6MM that would be great…
I’m sorry but DT is such a high bust rate position in my opinion… Jalen Carter, Breese, Roy combined for like 6 sacks last year… Payne had 4.5 in the NFL and currently has 2 in 2 games this year. He’s 25 years old, and he bats down balls…
He’s a nearly 9 RAS guy who had a similar 10 yd to Amon Ra, and similar 40 to Paschal at 320 pounds…
- tough to run on that… bring in C Harris, Cominsky, Levi or whoever to increase the rush?
Having N Sewell, Rodrigo, Barnes, and potentially bringing back C Board would give us a nice blend of size, thump, coverage and rush backers at 8MM combined APY
Okudah/- PORTER JR
- re-sign AO and Hughes sooner than later, and I don’t think AO will break the bank honestly- maybe 3 years and 30MM tops… Having Okudah, AO, Hughes, Jacobs, Lucas back by re-signing Hughes and AO (2 yrs 6M and 3 years 30M respectively) would give us an batch of CBs with 2-3 years left each… DRAFT ONE IN ROUND 2- Joey Porter Jr?
Brandon Joseph/K Joseph
Draft Jordan Battle or Brandon Joseph with the Rams pick (whoever the top safety is) to compete with Joseph and pair with T Walker…
Having Walker for 2 years, Iffy for 2 years, K Joseph for 3 years and “ROOKIE J Battle/B Joseph” for 4 years is a nice balance and about 14MM total APY at safety while having all 4 guys for 2-4 years!
Hutch/C Harris/J Okwara
Rodrigo/C Board/cheap FA
N Sewell/ D Barnes
AO/Joey Porter Jr
B Joseph/K Joseph
- So we are signing D Payne (4 yrs 68MM)… AO (3 years 30MM) Comminsky (3 years 9M) … C Board (2 years 6M) … M Hughes (2 years 6.5M)
That would be about 25M in years one hits…
We save 7.5M on Okwara and about 10MM from Brockers… thus saving us 17.5M - so we’d need about 7.5MM total to cover filling in the defense… plus 9M rookie allocations so about 16.5MM and right now we have around 20MM so not bad?
That has us spending our 1st rounders on LB, S, and CB- I just like D Payne better than any DT not name J Carter and even then his stats continue to elude the stats sheet? He will either go top 5, or fall for a reason… Give me Payne in his 4 year prime please- he will have 8 sacks this year for sure
J Jackson (4 years extension backloaded)/Skipper
— rookie 3rd round RG
Goff/Nate Sudfeld/ Rookie 6th rounder
Swift/Netflix/Jackson/Rookie 5th rounder
Jamo/ASB/Reynolds/Rookie 4th rounder/Raymond/Cephus
I am extending Swift and J Jackson… CUTTING BIG V… re-signing E Brown, Skipper, and Nelson along the OL…
Draft- 3rd -RG… 4th- WR… 5th- RB… 6th- QB
The extension won’t affect cap much- the re-signs are all really cheap-
We have the money do sign Chark if we choose…
