I’m guessing that if Licht can’t resign Shaq he will look for another diamond in the rough. He did it with Shaq, why can’t he find another one? Maybe its not that easy, but I suspect that Licht has some confidence in himself and will try to do that. I don’t see them going after the big name guy to be a pash rusher. They need another young, underappreciated guy who has something to prove.
Jj watt said on mcafee show that he nor his agents talk to press at all. So it has to be coming from a team. Probably browns to keep interest down and pressure the player. I’d actually be a little surprised if he doesn’t go to gb or tb on a 10m/yr deal with incentives
If Bucs truly are interested, this is where they need to bring out every recruiting tool in the box for the Tampa Bay area to get him to play for less. Pull out the no state income tax, warm weather, practice and play on grass, Super Bowl reigning champion with a legit shot to repeat, Todd Bowles, Bruce Arians, Tom Brady, endorsement opportunities, and on and on.
That money is crazy…but there are teams out there that will pay that. Thats probably why Pittsburgh is out….they wont pay market value for ANYONE. If Green Bay spend 15 mil on Watt that show Rodgers they are calling his bluff and wont give him better weapons…which will lead to issues for them<
So I think hes out for the PACK unless he comes way down I think his landing spot will be either Cleveland or Tennessee
His perfect fit WOULD have been Tampa. Tampa has a line full of talent so Watt could see single teams most of the time…Watt here would have 15 sacks a year
Those aforementioned places he wont even make it through a full season because the double and triple teams will run him into the ground and he just cant handle that now. If he doesn’t come to Tampa he wont be in the league more than 2 more years

I wonder how much he has in the tank. He might just get a great deal from a team and just go for that. I don’t know how good it will work out for him and the team but I think he needs to go to a dline that already has some studs there.
