Man I wish we had him instead of Star.....😞

We may be able to afford him and then walk away from Star next season.

Lions taking a $5M dead cap hit, not a good sign.  Snacks will be 31 this season, so still some gas left in the tank, age-wise.

That’s crazy.  I thought he was still a fairly productive player

TBD loves 30+ players

It’s almost like 26 year All-Pros don’t regularly hit free agency. Weird.

Much better run stopper  and overall player than Star.... too bad we basically guaranteed Stars roster status a week ago with the restructured contract.

Steep decline in play last year as injuries really hampered him.  Sounded like he was going to retire.  One of the most underrated players of the last decade.

Interestingly, your post prompted me to look at Spotrac again to see Star's dead cap hit.  Prior to the restructure, 2021 was a potential out with a dead cap hit of around $2.1M, IIRC.  With the restructure, his dead cap hit is $7.7M in 2021, so Star is most likely here until 2022 (dead cap $2.6M), where he becomes a UFA in 2023; Beane committed to Star for another year, at least.  McD and Beane seem to really like Star.

If that’s the end for Snacks he can retire knowing he put together a hell of a career for an UDFA. The Jets 100% should have re-signed him instead of Mo Wilkerson in 2016. 

 

Personality-wise I think Snacks got a “Locker Room Lawyer” rep at the end of his career which probably hurts him in free agency.

They probably like him because he does was he is supposed to do.  Funny how that works.

If you think Star is an above average 1-tech, I don't know what to tell you.

Doing what you're supposed to do means you're an average player. Nobody said he's above average.

Yet they will find the fountain of youth and become game changers for the Bills.... amazing how that works.

 

Thank you for helping prove the point.

Don’t sign anyone who isn’t a 26 year old All Pro?
