I wonder how long it’s going to take Bruce Arians to figure out the has no chance to win with this QB GM . I like Bruce Arians I just hope he doesn’t blow a gasket over this team.

Im just a fan, but why are we not doing what the Steelers did with AB atleast they got some draft picks. We know that the team is in cap trouble. Why are we going to hang on to Djax, Hump, McCoy, Brate, and get nothing for these guys when we have to just cut em later. We should take all 4 players in a package for somebodies number 1 and 3 picks.

Steelers got screwed because AB would only sign off on a deal to go to Oakland. He rejected a Bills trade that was all but completed and would have (supposedly) sent a 1st round draft pick to Pittsburgh. That gave leverage to Oakland and was one last F.U. to the Steelers GM. D.Jax has trade value. No way the Bucs just cut him. They will trade him if they do anything. I keep wondering why they are going on TV and defending his actions and talking him up? Maybe it’s to increase his trade value or maybe it’s to show… Read more »

Chargers re-signed LB Denzel Perryman for 2 years, $12 million coming off season-ending knee injury. Might help set market for LB Kwon Alexander. Kwon has better numbers though. Perryman: 2 career INTs, 1 career forced fumble, 4 passes defensed, 226 tackles. Alexander: 6 career INTs, 6 career forced fumbles, 22 passes defensed, 380 tackles.

It was reported the Bucs offered a long-term contract but less than the 10mil he is seeking. I’m going to guess that Bucs offered 4 years at 8mil with 2 years guaranteed. We’ll know by Wednesday. Go Bucs!

Contracts. A lot of teams know they can get DJax for cheap once we cut him. Same with McCoy. Brate I think has trade value. We should have traded McCoy a couple of yrs ago when we could have gotten a couple of #1s for him.

For cheap? I think D.Jax’s $10 million dollar salary is as cheap as you’ll get him. He will likely earn $12-14 million/year on the open market on a new 3 year deal. He will instantly be the #1 Wide Receiver on the market if he is released. Who else can do what he has done for his entire career and is still in his prime? John Ross? John Brown? They sure haven’t done it yet. His “Diva” antics will be viewed by most teams as a player that wants to win and who wasn’t involved enough in the game plan… Read more »
