      If Eric Fisher is willing to play for Donovan Smith’s money (at least this year), I’d sign him in a heartbeat and jettison Smith. That is an instant upgrade at left tackle

      I saw this but didn’t see how it relates to their cap situation. It seems like a weird move, their C Reiter is a FA also. A high draft pick OT and FA incoming for them.

        they were 21 mil. over the cap, this reduces that for 18 mil. they save

        eric fisher is a great player, but it is hard to sign someone straight off of achiles injury

        Especially Schwartz wasn’t cut to save cap space. He was probably the best RT in the league before his back injury and would’ve only counted 7 or 8 million against the cap in 2021. 

        The Chiefs think he won’t be able to come back, that’s why they cut him

      Fisher has a blown Achilles, may not play until later in the season. Not worth.

      Chiefs will not be the best team in the AFC next year. The cap is going to turn the NFL upside down. Luckily the Bucs are in fantastic shape!

      Here’s a wild stat. After Fisher’s release, every number one draft pick from 2016 and before is no longer with the team that drafted them.

      Fisher ruptured his Achilles in the AFCCG and will be out for the 2021 season. 

      Both him and Schwartz aren’t really cap related cuts, they’ve got released because they suffered career-treating injuries and Chiefs decided to move on (Schwartz is expected to retire anyway).

      They won’t be able to help any the team next season.

      OP you want to replace our very good & healthy LT with a guy who tore his achilles 6-7 weeks ago?

      I wouldn’t get rid of smith for fisher. Our line played really well last year. I’m not saying fisher isn’t better but his injury is a big one and you’re essentially taking a chance when you don’t have to. Smith can get the job done and is currently healthy.

      If it ain’t broke don’t fix it!

      Mahomes is special, but they need to be careful. You can ruin a qb if you can’t protect him.

        Exactly.

        That’s why he’ll never surpass Brady. Mahomes style of play won’t allow it.

        Look at RGIII. Cam is beat up and Wilson is about the only one who’s holding up.

        Mahomes is an amazing talent and may hold up as well as Wilson, but he won’t become the GOAT.

        Mahomes current style is not conducive to longevity.

      The hatred for Smith is sad at this point.

        As Micheal Corleone said in The Godfather 2 ” It’s not personal, it’s business”.
        Smith is an average left tackle that is paid in the top 10 of all tackles in the NFL. So that means he is overpaid by $4-5 million per year. Ideally the team would like to pay him less so that money could go to a more deserving player. And if the team had the cap room they would like to get a better player and pay them the same. (Brady replacing Winston for example)
        No hate; it’s just business.

        Prior to 2020 id agree with you.

        Nothing from his 2020 play suggests average.

        His penalties have always been his biggest Achilles heel. Those were(thankfully) way down.
