Well said and I agree. The issue is that this team torpedoed itself with tannebaum handing out poor contracts. Loading up on high priced free agents now doesnt help us fix the issue of depth. We should be handling these contracts before they expire. That was a big issue with tannebaum as he was always a step behind. It's on grief to fix that.Yea but the point of FA is going into the draft with as few holes as possible.
If we somehow miraculously retain James, that gives us the freedom to take a guy like Ed Oliver if he falls to us which may be a better pick in the long run.
I wanna see this defense become elite more than anything else, if it's between James and Flowers I would lean Flowers which puts the tackle @13 in play, I think we should get 1 of these 2.
My point with X was at least with him you have a franchise tag option that actually would make sense from a dollars and sense standpoint . . . .if the contract talk got real uncomfortable. With Juwan that is not the case.That’s not what you were saying about x prior. It was who cares if he’s pissed playing on tbe final year of his deal.
Glad you came around on that
right, and I don't want to be the team that spends the $$ just because it is what the "market dictates". the best of teams don't fall for thatThe market for ":an average RT" is what teams will pay for it- we have had this conversation before. "big money" is relative depending on what other players are signing for.
That's because there wasn't one. At all.James is a good, not elite right tackle. Jessie Davis replaced him in 2017 and I didn't see a drop-off.
