    I don't get it.  The NFL looks like it was guilty of collusion by settling.  So why settle if there was nothing?

     

    They don't look guilty. These players and their movement were using the lawsuit to prop up their visibility, they don't have that anymore. The settlement will be in the news for maybe a week and people will forget about it. A case would have given them relevance for even longer. 


  2. Throwaway comments like this in articles are so annoying because they are super vague and shirk any responsibility. Who was doing the "saying" that the Bills were furious? Cause saying that they were "said" to be furious is not attributing that comment to a source, it's basically just repeating a rumor, which is trash reporting. I can say Rich Cimini is "said" to pee sitting down; that doesn't mean I can verify it, but now I've put it out there as reported truth.

    I'm sure he can catch. That's not what makes this funny to me.

     

    How many times will we see a player transition to another position as if it will instantly make them a better football player? 

     

    Take Logan Thomas: QB transitioned to TE, what, two years into his career. How is that going? As other posters have mentioned, these experiments (I.e Manhertz) almost always fair. To think a player at 25 years old can drop the position from which they were DRAFTED IN THE SECOND ROUND to be a NFL caliber player at a different position is insane. He will likely be a 6th tackle, just with an elidgable number.

     

    This isn't exactly switching from corner to safety. 

     

     

    OL to TE specifically, I can't recall one. But there are plenty of CBs who transition to S successfully and that change is harder than you'd think. Plenty of college Ts who switch to G in the NFL as well. Lorax is playing OLB/DE and he started his career on the DL, then OL/TE and then lost a bunch of weight and now plays everywhere, so it's not the weirdest thing.

    If you listen to the interview, he indicates that they are still looking at adding to the DL in FA, which is what the title says. I think it’s obvious are looking at DL in the draft - they are looking at everything except QB and have tons of picks. But some thought that they might be done in FA after not signing Ansah (yet)... the interesting point of the interview is that he said they aren’t done trying to address it. Whether they sign anyone, tbd

     

     

    I believe he said he was in a holding pattern right now and they were likely done looking at FA DL at this point, but maybe after the draft (seems like he was open to picking up someone who might be available via trade or getting cut as a result of a team drafting a younger player).

    This thread is at least 90% BS.  The only thing about the last two drafts that has been "incredible" is all the bull manure that McDermott/Beane cheerleaders on TSW make up about them -- and the outright lies they make up to "prove" their points.

     

     

    I didn't bother reading this tome of a post beyond the opening sentence. I presume I can summarize it by saying "some guy 💩s on our last 2 drafts for whatever reason." Did I get it right?

    Then why do so many teams select WR, CB, QB, etc at the top of the draft? Ohhhh, I see, you just want to interject that YOU feel they should "start with the trenches". You were compelled to throw that in wherever a person might post about a skill player being selected first.

    Thanks!

     

    Someone needs a hug. You ok buddy? Josh Jacobs is not a top 10 player in this draft, he is not coming out with Saquon Barkley-level hype. We're not drafting a RB in the 1st when there are very good DL and OL on the board. The only 2 players who could possibly be drafted at 9 who are not linemen are DK Metcalf and perhaps Hockenson, but I'm doubtful they would spend the 9th pick on Hock when they could pick up Irv Smith at 40.
