    It's all plugged into the salary cap, which are the rules the team has to play by. The players and agents (mostly) aren't idiots. They all know the time value of money and charge for those deferrals.

    Well then, you are owed a crap ton of cash back on that investment ;)

    Let's try this again using YOUR example, shall we.
    If the guy selling the Bentley only talked to one person, then yes, he was an idiot. If the guy selling the Bentley talked to the entire market (the 31 one other people in the entire world who could buy this special model Bentley) and no one offered more than $100 dollars, then that IS THE MARKET price. :facepalm It doesn't matter if the price would be different next week if he has to sell the car this week. We played a game of craps trying to extract a higher price than the expected comp pick. We might have lost -- it's hard to really know because the comp rules are so complicated and depends on so many variables.

    The part of this you simply refuse to accept is the team didn't value Landry the same way you and half the boards here did. You can argue the team is being stupid, but that would be pretty interesting for a guy with such academic impressive credentials to form an opinion without all of the inside info (a.k.a. data) the team has and you don't.

    Personally, I don't get it. I don't get the love for a very good, but not great player who was demanding contract terms that only 1 or 2 teams were willing to consider. Every team in the league has 4 years of film and many have played against him. If he's so damned valuable, why didn't anyone other than the browns bite? When young, great players hit the market, there is a feeding frenzy. He's young, healthy, and has impressive stats. Where is the love from anyone other than people here on the boards? Could it be that every team took a hard look and asked: does he change games, does he require defensive scheming, does he require double coverage and answered every question with 'no'. The market spoke: he's good, but not a game changer and that's not worth north of $15M a year, deferred or not.

    Only Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Green Bay and New England seem to understand not letting key players on their rookie deals hit Free Agency.

    The value we got for Landry is laughably bad, we traded a 4th for a guy has missed 19 games the last 3 years. To only get a 4th for a productive 25 year old WR with no injury history just shows incompetance. They knew his asking price was never going to be something they were going to agree to. They should have traded him last year after having a far superior season, especially if the rumors are true that Chicago offered a 2nd.

    The cherry on top would be if Parker has a breakout year in 2018 they give him the big contract they refused to give to Landry and Parker goes back to being the WR we've known him to be the past couple of years.

    Browns did a pick swap with Packers for the Kiser trade. Is that what makes it pick123?

    Johnny is bipolar and has a alcohol problem. Baker appears to love football but appears to resent authority with some immaturity showing. Until I were to get the psych eval he's off my board

    It’s not even so much that Landry is gone. I, like a lot of you guys were growing tired of his “me first” antics and I was happy as hell to unfollow him on Instagram. It’s how we lost him and what we got in return that bothers me. It says all you need to know about the Dolphins FO over the past decade or so and that’s what is so deflating. Anyway it’s over now and hopefully there will be some bright spots in FA and the draft but it’s hard to look at 2018 as anything other than another reboot right now.

    I mean the value we got back wasn't the best. And Juice was one of my favorite players. But I don't think he's the type of player you break the bank for like that. I wish we could have found a way to keep him on a fair deal, but it didn't happen. That being said again, and it's been said all year so it's not hearsay, that the offense was very heavily for Landry cause he was one not grasping Gase's stuff

    4th and a 7th, not even a 7th this year. WoW deal of all time by the Browns, good for them. Our front office looks so F'in bad.

    My last .02 on this bs of a gm we have. Who was the last good player we've drafted and extended since this moron has been here? Iv already mentioned that it happen w OV, Mathews and miller and now Landry. What does this say about our future? When guys like X, Drake, Tunsil etc. are up for contracts? I'll tell you it will be happening all over again. They'll either hit FA in there prime or be traded for day 3 pics. Please end this already Ross. The **** jobs your getting from Tbom aren't worth it

    Sorry but I reject the premise that under the circumstances, TBum extracted the best deal he could. I suspect Cleveland made their offer, TBum, said, how about a 3rd and 6th, Dorsey said "No" so TBum knuckled under instead of thinking creatively by saying, "okay, how about we package Landry, James and our 1st for your #4?" or something like that. IMO "Trader Mike" got his name because he loves the deal, not because he's good at it.

    AFAIC, Buffalo came in next and got our 3rd for a mediocre QB who everyone knew Buffalo was desperate to unload under any circumstances. Not only did TBum's ineptitude cost us value for the most productive and durable slot receiver in the league, but has indirectly enabled a smarter GM up in Buffalo to leapfrog over us in the draft.

    Beyond that, declaring that the front office bozos got the best deal they could under the circumstances.. well hells bells, who created those circumstances leaving them no other options? It's like that old joke about the kid who killed his parents and then threw himself on the mercy of the court because he was an orphan. Tannebum should be anything but lauded for allowing circumstances to reach the point of becoming uncontrollable!

    Technically Landry is nowhere near the most productive slot in the NFL.

    He's actually one of the most inefficient WRs in the NFL.

    When people talk about signing landry a year earlier, what type of contact are we talking about? Let's say this year he's looking for 4 years 15m per. And what does that extension mean for that extremely cap friendly final year of his rookie contract?
