OT: 2019 NFL Offseason Discussion Thread

The dust has settled on yet another Patriots Super Bowl win, and the personnel moves are beginning.

Some notables to watch this offseason:

  • Philadelphia picks up Nick Foles's option, but he paid $2m to void it. He is an unrestricted free agent, and the Eagles may yet use the franchise tag and trade him
  • The Browns signed Kareem Hunt to a one year deal. Hunt was the starting RB for the Chief prior to video evidence surfacing of him kicking a young woman during an altercation. The NFL placed him on the exempt list and the Chiefs cut him. His availability for the upcoming season is unknown.
  • Heisman winning Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray indicated that he plans to proceed with a career in the NFL. This is notable because Murray was drafted #9 overall by the Oakland A's of MLB and signed a contract
  • Could Antonio Brown be traded?
  • Leveon Bell sat out the 2018-19 season to get more guaranteed money in free agency. This offseason is when he could get it.

Redskins start Colt McCoy so they can tank for Herbert, Tua, or Fromm

Haven't paid that much attention to the Kareem Hunt thing, but wasn't he telling the girl put up 4 one of his friends or get out? Difference between that (which look I'm not saying it is an unheard of move) and human trafficking is basically how many times you pull the move. The NFL having contracts with the local police forces. I wouldn't be unhappy if the started a RICO case against Roger-n-friends.

NFL can count me out if the above is true and i so want to kick the channels with NFL contracts the f out my house.

This is probably a guy who benches 350+, squats 500+. Just wow.

I don't mean this to defend Hunt in any way, but there is no parallel to human trafficking...

Human traffickers have been known to beat the girls who don't sleep with who they are told to sleep with.

Depends on what your definition of parallel is.

Should Hunt not get back to NFL stardom, he has sufficient video evidence that he can be successful in a number of professions. Human trafficking clearly one of them.

Sorry, but you've earned my downvote. I'm not even getting into the topic of human trafficking, but your last sentence is simply tasteless.

What on earth are you talking about?

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

Dude, you need to proofread your posts. I don't understand the first sentence at all....

It sounds like VT_Slacker is hinting at the fact that Hunt may have been offering his female companion the choice between engaging romantically with one of his male companions, or being forced to vacate the premises.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Kyler Murray needs his head checked. Baseball has no salary cap and guaranteed contracts. All of that on top of the lack of 300 lb dudes trying to end your career on each snap. Baseball is the smart play.

Come to Blacksburg and see what the Hokie Pokie is really all about

Football is way more money way sooner if he's a first round pick. Risk of injury is much higher, but his first two contracts would probably see him make more than his first two MLB contracts. There's been an MLB-wide trend towards payroll depression (or suppression depending on who you ask) over the last two years.

Baseball draft is automatic minor league contract isn't it? NFL he gets more up front and the marketing contracts he can sign as the face of a franchise is where he can really bring in $$. Shorter season, quicker money, bigger fame. Hard to blame him.

And you're not scrounging your way up thru A, then AA, then AAA, then the majors etc

Aaaand it sounds like Antonio Brown has officially asked for a trade from the Steelers. He's tweeted his goodbyes, and it's believed the Steelers will be asking for a first round pick.

Sounds like just the guy Danny will spend 200 million fully guaranteed on.

Joe Flacco is being traded to the Bronccos

Broncos fan's aren't thrilled, but I like the move. It's lateral, at least. I think they should still draft a qb with potential and let him sit up Flacco. At least until the new qb is ready, or Flacco's contract is up, whichever comes first.

Joe Flacco is elite

His paycheck and agent certainly are. His play not so much.

Wet stuff on the red stuff.

Only elite QBs get traded for mid-round picks in the beginning stages of the offseason

Man he is a super bowl MVP!! The broncos definitely should have thought that trading a top-ten pick for him would be a great idea 😉👉

What you did there, I see it

I'm glad you agree!

With the Ravens going all in on Jackson, I wouldn't be surprised to see them try and get Tyrod.

Not only would he be a good scheme backup for Jackson, but Greg Roman knows him really well.
