2020 NFL Free Agency

Recommended Posts

The tampering period begins Monday the 16th and of course the biggest story of them all is Tom Brady's future. is he trolling the fuck out of everyone or will he seriously consider his options for the first time in his career?

Miami, Indy, Buffalo and Tampa have $$$ to burn.

He doesn't strike me as the type of guy that just wants to get paid.  That hasn't been his MO.  I think at this point he wants to win AND get paid (in that order), and I'm not sure that opportunity exists.  Should be interesting, but I don't think he'll go to one of those teams.  Well, maybe Buffalo just to stick to to NE, but Buffalo doesn't seem like a Tom and Gisele kind of town.  They actually have a decent team and need a QB.

A large percentage of GOAT QBs have moved on in the late stages of their career. Montana, Manning, Unitas, Favre. I think Brady joins that group.

Don’t forget about Vince and the eagles.

I don’t think they need a QB actually. Allen made a lot of progress this year.

I would not be shocked if Tom Brady signed with the Titans or Chargers, both teams have more assets on offense than New England had to offer last season. Both teams have the money to burn and have assets on offense that would appeal to him.

It's looking more and more like it could happen. For the first time in his career Brady appears primed to seriously explore his options.

Considering how much money is going to come in with new TV contracts and gambling - that contract might turn out to be a little low in 3 years

Josh Allen is a perfect fit for that style of play, all they need is some help at WR and OL and that’s a hell of a roster...

Yikes

That contract is below market value. Could he end up the next Nick Foles? Yes. Could he have a repeat of last season and continue to grow in a system he flourished in? The answer is also yes.

 

The cap is increasing $10 million for 2020, that was announced today. Anthony Castonzo  becomes the 2nd highest paid LT resigning with the Colts for 2 years at $33 million.

The Jags are desperate to escape their cap hell. Campbell can still ball the fuck out, Baltimore got a steal.

Cleveland being Cleveland.

 

That Tannehill contract continues to look like a bargain : http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000001106332/article/vikings-kirk-cousins-agree-to-2year-66m-extension

Quote

Cousins, who signed a three-year $84 million fully guaranteed contract in 2018, had been set to enter the final year of his contract. The new deal puts him in the books for $96 million over three years with $61 million guaranteed at signing.

Not necessarily free agency but deforest Buckner to the colts for pick 13th in this draft. 

And a 5yr/$105mm extension.

I hate to lose him but there's no way the 49ers could pay that 21MM/yr. I feel great about getting a top 15 pick.

They had to do something to fix their toilet paper offensive line. They better hope they end up with the 2016 All-pro version or 2019 version and not the 2017 or 2018 version that led to his 5th year option being declined before the beginning of the 2019 season. It'll be glorious watching Baker fail with that stacked offense.

Well got Antonio brown 2.0 off of our hands

Diggs isn’t anywhere close to Brown, but you guys got a haul for him. The Texans front office (lol) has to be kicking themselves right now.

Jesus Fucking Christ. Are compensation picks still tied to the value of the contract?

Yes. The main change is that the UFA changing teams has to be in the top 35% of position salary, previously it was top 50%.

Bills had 2 5th and 6th round picks. Basically turns into a 1st and 2021 4th for diggs.

Edit: Bills may also get a compensation pick for Shaq Lawson going to Miami

Interesting pairing. His physical ability is there, his struggles in recent years have been largely mental. Marcus could throw beautiful deep balls, but he looked for the check downs far too often or scrambled out of the pocket at the slightest hint of pressure after his right fibula injury following the 2016 season.

There were times he could drop a perfect dime like this :

My prediction: Hopkins continues a downward trend. D Johnson continues to be a C + back, no NFL big time ramifications. Hopper busts because Cleveland somehow thinks more weapons vs a good oline will help Baker. The Cowboys CB to Dolphins deal 😂😂😂 My God the dolphins are Challenging  the Browns for embarrassment 2020.

Paul Allen is the voice of the Vikings...kfan is the radio flagship

Yea, Diggs is sort of a head case..... I'm sure he has his side to the situation, but not showing up is rarely the answer.  It'll be interesting to see how the Bills do.  Tons of weapons and a young QB with legs.  They're primed to win the division.
