I am so glad we are resigning a team that stunk last year. We shouldn’t change anything. It is important to remain loyal and keep guys who “know the system.” Awesome.
Meanwhile… all the other terrible GM’s around the league are signing players that are better than their own FA’s. They are shaking things up. What a stupid idea. Licht knows best.
Thank you Licht! Finally we will have 2 #1 TE’s (every Super Bowl winner has won on the backs of having two great TE’s)… 1 #2 CB… 3 #3 CB’s… 2 #3 level DE’s. Oh wait… that’s exactly what we had last year.
I guess we will just draft a starting DE, a starting DT, a #1 CB, a starting saftey, a starting LG, a starting PK, and a starting C.
The Pewter Report board here are all behind you Jason. You are doing so well. I love your plan. If you have the greatest draft in history (which I know you will), then we will be nearly as good as last year.

$7 million a year for a #2 TE??
Not a bad gig.
This will be a 2 year deal— once O.J.’s price goes up, Brate is gone.
Yea this is a good deal for both parties. Brate is happy, hes making big money these next two years. We can reassess his value to the team after 2-3 more season and he either continues making big money from us or hes released and signing another lucrative contract as an 28-29 year old.

This is a great signing. And for those of you who disagree I have one thing to say,
There shouldnt be many people who disagree, but I understand anyone whos not excited. They want to see the 5-11 team get upgrades. new contracts for the same roster isnt a thing I personally get hyped about either. Good singings none the less. needed grimes back for a year, Evans is buc longterm for millions lower then he would have costed in FA, and Brate is back under a team friendly contract in relation to his value and production.. now.. let us hear who were bringing in to actually make us better
Geez chill out bro. The signing period is right around the corner and I’m certain we will be active. Licht knows his ass is on the hot seat and he’s not gonna sit back and put out the same product he did last year. Either we land some crucial pieces to improve the roster this off-season or we wash our hands of him next year. I’m not a huge fan of Licht but constant trolling ain’t gonna change anything. Only thing we can do is hold on tight and hope for the best.
Resigning Brate is a good move. Smart to lock up the above average talent that we DO have. Especially one of winstons favorite targets.
