      The free agent and OJ threads got me interested in actually seeing our roster on paper and Spotrac has a great site that allows you to manipulate the roster and sign free agents.

      This leaves us thin at OLD/Edge rusher which we would need to address in the draft or hope JPP or a FA gives us a discount. We also get Brady’s boy James White which should make our offense completely unstoppable. Donovan Smith takes a bit of a paycut for one more run at the SB. Also a few other discounts/paycuts. All seems reasonable

      Godwin is not going to make 17m this year. That is an absurd amount of money for someone who has one 1,000 yard season. He is a good WR but he is not Mike Evans good. I think 13-14 a year gets it done.

        I agree that’s a lot of money and you probably are correct on salary range, esp with the amount of really good FA WR’s. That’s good, now we can sign another depth DL.

      This exercise is even more fun when you go into the Saints roster and try to somehow get them under the cap. I’ve literally cut 10 of their highest salaried players and they are still 30mil over the cap.

      Ugh. What’s our depth chart look like after all these changes?


      Post count: 2706

      Gronk at 6.6? Pass. 3 or 4 id be interested.

      Every year people cant wait to cut Gholston but every game he’s bullying offensive linemen.

        I’d likely bring Gholston in this scenario, I was mainly just trying to get a big picture of what our team could look like and from here we can adjust. Gholston coming back as depth is probably one of the first things I would do.

      Most NFL teams have salary cap problems in 2021, but a few others (Jacksonville, Miami) have cap space to sign free agents. Godwin could get a fat offer from Miami or Jacksonville.

        We could always franchise Godwin since we’re letting Barrett walk in this scenario but you have a good point. I’m wondering how the FA WR market is going to play out, lots of great players there.

      a few things i notice…

      Lavonte David would be too much money at that price… He is a really good player but has faded towards the end of the season… he will be 31 years old… Our D is already not good so why overpay for a player who will soon decline. I don’t want to hear about a great run D… They aren’t a great run D. No team needs to run because the pass D is so bad. The one team that said were gonna run the football was the vikings and they had no problem doing so.

      I would not move on from Ryan Jensen. The guy is a good lineman and i like his attitude. He has 4 penalties and 4 sacks allowed this year. i would much rather let donovan smith go and draft another Tackle and sign another one.

      Gronk at somewhere around 5 million give or take a million is well worth it. He is a heck of a blocker and can still be a threat. Keeping Brady happy is worth it as well.

      James White – Im all for bringing him in however it wont cost you anywhere near 4.5M… He makes 4M currently and has been terrible this year. You shouldn’t have to pay him more than 3M.

      Leonard Floyd is a terrible football player. I live in Chicago, he was awful here Playing in one of the best Defenses in the league… Now he is playing with even more studs with the Rams which we don’t have. It’s a lot easier to get sacks when you have Aaron Donald and a secondary that is making the QB hold onto the ball. We don’t have a CB even close to that. Plus it was a contract year… noooo thank you.

      If you can find a way to keep Brady, Evans, Godwin, Gronk, Brown, Miller, Cappa, Marpet, Jensen, Wirfs…. That would be ideal but i highly doubt Brown comes back since he has proven he can still play and should get some money.. I think James White completes the backfield with Jones and then you need a Tackle and either Howard or Brate.

      The draft should be 100% dedicated to a Tackle and all defense. Carlton Davis is not a #1 cornerback… not even close…
