Not doubting the team is actively trying to add guys like Quinn or Bennett, but starting to doubt their valuations on players. So a team who finished the year with 38 sacks values Bennett higher than the team that finished with 22 and near the bottom of the league in basically every defensive category.
What a load of crap so between Bennett and Quinn we’re out bid by a 5th and 6th rounder it’s like Licht is barely even trying he’s runs right out of these trade talks the second he doesn’t get it the exact way he wants what an epic fail that we didn’t get either of these guys over a couple picks on players that might not even be on the team by the last preseason game what a joke
The problem with missing out on Quinn and Bennett was that they provided a patch at DE because the draft lacks any impact DEs outside of Chubb, who could have helped us this year. We could have added Quinn/Bennett and drafted one of these project DEs and hope for better options next year. Simply put, we are screwed at DE this year because there just isn’t anyone out there to help us…
I was being called a troll a couple months ago…. now everyone sounds like me!!!! Can’t blame you guys for the optimism …. but this year will be hard to watch…. I was right about Licht, Koetter, and McCoy…. we should’ve traded him when we had the chance… but most of all… I’m rite about Jameis as well!!! This year the world will see him for what he is…a class clown … a turnover waiting to happen …. this year is going to be abysmal….
I see a lot of people complain that the GM picks up a lot of older guys. And I could see us for sure grabbing Bennet if he lasted to free agency and paying him a decent dime. But throwing away our future picks would be stupid if we had to waist more than one. Build through draft and free agency not through trades. Unless it’s to trade down and not for a kicker
At gatherings like the combine, pro days and owner’s meetings, do the other GM’s point and laugh at Licht? Maybe tell Aguayo or Hargreaves jokes behind his back? Or ask him about how close the Bucs are in Licht’s FIFTH year?
Yep the super bowl champs, and the patriots , and falcons….yaaaaa we dont need him hes too old. Lol. Every year i hear the same morons cry about 30 yr old players being too old. Only to watch play off teams get them. Probably should learn a thing or two from them….nahhh im so freaking smart….i cant give up a 5th round pick…we have a future practice squad player there. Why would i get a pro bowl defender when i can out think myself in the draft. You’re an idiot Jason
I heard that the Seachickens asked for Godwin in the trade for Bennett! Would you still do that deal?…. I WOULD NOT!
Also, With all of this smack and the writing of these posts. It makes me wonder if it’s just one troll with 10 screen names.
1. The off season hasn’t even started yet!
2. Not all of the salary cap strapped teams have made cuts yet!
A. BALTIMORE RAVENS: $9,009,589
B. PITTSBURGH STEELERS: $5,394,632
C. DALLAS COWBOYS: $1,578,082
D. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES: -9,133,036
E. MIAMI DOLPHINS: $-18,529,645
3. Free Agency hasn’t started yet!
4. The Draft hasn’t happened yet!
5. The second wave of cuts hasn’t happened yet!
6. The preseason cuts haven’t happened yet!
Obviously, the Front Office has to be prudent and look at every opportunity! So, let the process happen if they fail. They will all be outside looking next year!
Even if the report is true that Godwin was initially asked for, Licht has to be able to negotiate. Look at what the eagles got Bennett for. They were obviously will g to accept less. 30 years old or not the dude produced almost half the sacks our entire team did last year. Licht better have some shit up his sleeve after this.
Agreed, if we had snagged one of these guys, I would feel better about drafting a Davenport or similar guy because they wouldn’t have to be a full time starter from day one. They could be used situationaly and learn from the guy in front of them. With Ayers almost sure to be cut, who is going to show the DE’s how its done?
There is only a negotiation if the original team replies to your response!
If the Seahawks said they want this you have 5 minutes to get back to us. The reply was No, Godwin can’t be had…What else are you interested in? Or, we will offer you this….
Then the Hawks went back to the Eagles and can say anything the Bucs are offering us BOBO will you give us Marcus?….
We had a guy on our Baseball team was actually traded for a scrub, bats and balls….. It happens! That shit isn’t told! That’s why people then respond why would we only take that scrub for said player!…. I’ve heard even worse stuff.
I have no problem with not beating that price for Bennett. Heck, the Patriots didn’t want to beat that price and neither did Atlanta. Why is Licht an idiot? Since I already thought Licht was not a good GM, this actually makes me feel a bit better about him. Not much though, because I still think he stinks.
Bucs failed to get the best DE on the market. Bennett would at least improve our passrush. I expect more of the same this year, yet I’m not one to give up on my favorite team so I will wait until camp start. Bright side if they don’t show up this year everybody should be fired.
