Link?  Just because he worked out for a team doesn’t mean that he “wanted to sign” there.

 

It's tough to get get guys to sign in Buffalo because of weather/small market issues. That's the cold hard truth.

 

Maybe we should have made a stronger push to keep the receivers that we had. It's at least a slight advantage that they were already here.

Given the huuuuge workload for kamara and Thomas - anything to keep them fresh for 19-20 games is important. He won’t get a ton but hopefully takes some of those short punishing routes from them

Not if you have both on your fantasy team.

He can. Just not as far as Josh Allen...

Ya didn’t he get offered like a 3 year 18 mil contract or something ?

 

That's a ***** contract for someone like Dez.

 

I think he played hurt in Dallas and this, "he doesn't have it anymore" chatter is just parrotting.

If he ends up proving everyone wrong, I'm going to be bitter.

Yes, none of our QBs will ever compare to Brees, but a talented WR still playing well, one that was available all offseason and through the regular season, and us not grabbing him when we're trotting out the worst WR corps in the league would be upsetting.

 

A WR trying to resurrect his career.  Why, in God's name, would he sign in Buffalo?  That would be foolish.

"He's old, He's slow, He's a diva, He's a cancer in the locker room" yada yada yada ... yet a team with strong leadership, a winning organazition with already potent offensive weapons sees fit to bring him in, but NOOOOOO not the Bills with their stellar line up at WR?  Keep on trusting THE PROCESS I guess ... 🤣

He’s 30 years old and coming off a bad year.

 

Regardless if he was hurt or not, he was never going to get more money or get a longer term than that.

 

As he has now found out the hard way

Also was a pain in the *** in the lockerroom. You could tell everybody was fed up with him on that show all or nothing. Lol a show where the world could see how weird he was and see the writing on the wall.. everybody was walking around with this "stfu Dez" look on their face.

 

He'd be yelling some weird pump up "speech", equal parts negative and positive and 100% incoherent after week 7 loss and people were just changing, talking to reporters and hitting the showers. He looked like he was talking to himself.

 

I think it's counterproductive when you're trying to be the leader of the team and are not taken seriously. That level of delusion is worse than just shutting up and letting better player leadership take over rather than talking over the Witten type. Or at least Dak's best effort was getting talked over by some guy nobody respected. Ala nobody bothered to try to be the lockerroom leader and talk over him eventually.

 

That show is waaaaay too revealing about a team I was shocked they had access to all this to air to the world. Hard Knocks is just about interesting preseason story lines and players in the NFL Fringe. All or nothing is just watching a team with no filter whatsoever.. can't tell if that'd be cool to see on the Eagles in retrospect or something.. but a bad team makes all the parts that make it bad that much more revealing.

Not sure I'd consider this "the hard way".  I think he got exactly what he wanted. 

 

He is with a contender and the one of the greatest QBs in NFL History.

It was relative to money as you said 3 years 18 total was not a good deal for him.

 

He now has a 1 year deal probably for the veterans minimum

dammit. I picked dez late in FF draft thinking he would be picked up sooner than this. I dropped him two weeks ago.

 

This also sucks because I have Michael Thomas in two leagues and Dez may take away opportunities. M. Thomas has been keeping my otherwise shabby team in the hunt.

 

but Dez is Okstate, so o hope he kicks ass!

Saints the best team in the NFL.  Running away with it.  Very exciting to watch.  Don't even need Bryant, but will have him anyway.  He's like  cupcake....

 

I wouldn't put the Saints above the Rams, Chiefs, and Pats. But the Saints are for sure in the conversation with those teams as being an elite Super Bowl contender. The best part about the NFL in my opinion is that you can have 4 teams that are legit contenders but then have several other teams that can get hot and have a shot to contend. I wouldn't rule out the Vikings, Panthers, Chargers, Falcons, and The Steelers in the conversation either.

Go ahead and put them there.  They won 7 in a row and beat the Rams last week.  The pats would not bet them today and the Chiefs D is awful--so who wins a shootout, Mahomes or Brees?

 

 

You know the answer.

I think you are being a prisoner of the moment. The Pats are clutch and in a winner take all one shot game its hard to take them down. The Rams are as complete a team as possible and in a rematch I wouldn't count them out. The Chiefs are the softest of the 4 but in a shootout the Chiefs have as good a talent to do that as anyone.

We are talking about who is the best team right now, in this moment.  The Saints have been rolling all season, however.  The Rams are complete?  That D is 12 in yards and 10 in points allowed.

Ahh, ok.

 

Sometimes you have to bet on yourself.

By Long haul - was Ian talking about 2 days.

 

Sucks for Dez, but man you could not write a more expected ending.  Hold out - miss camp and preseason - work out for yourself (by all accounts in pretty good shape) - tear your Achilles because you have lost the flexibility by working on strength.

 

These guys really need to work on flexibility and stretching muscles when they are not playing.

 

I see a similar ending for Bell, but with a hammy/groin if he comes back.

 

🤕

He went to a workout in season with the Browns.

 

You don't go workout for a team if you have no interest signing with them...…….
