I don't get why so many are down on Brown.  He was great in 2019 and played well before the injury.  Of course he didn't get as many yards/catches cuz we added Diggs.  You gotta have more than 1 stud

Crazy that the NFL allowed this to happen. Some of the richest people in the world cant handle a single year with no attendance without cutting the salary cap. And now the product will suffer because of it.

I dont think its crazy at all.  Its actually pretty logical, even rich people dont like putting money in a toilet and flushing it.   I dont see how the product suffers? They will still employ professional football players.  It's not like they are looking to replace the cuts with a bunch of guys they find at Tim Hortons.

Yes on Mr. Cook I know he’s 33 but I’d give him a 1 year deal to play with Josh still very productive down there with NO 

 

 I would consider him one year on the cheap.. $2.5M max....

So how do you think it should work?  The NFLPA didn't like a system where the salary cap was arbitrary, and each increase had to be bargained.  They agreed to a system where the salary cap is tied to the NFL's revenue for that league year - 48% of it IIRC.

 

If the cap actually went down to the extent that revenue did across the league, it would be $160M or something like that, I read.  So the NFL and owners came to an agreement where they put more than that into the cap than that.

 

But it's the flip side of tying the salary cap into league revenue so that "a rising tide lifts all boats"

Cook as a replacement for Kroft or Smith would be good.

 

I still think Knox is going to be our best option as TE1, and I fully expect him to take his game to the next level. He is, by far, the most athletic TE compared to any other guy that will be floating out on the market.  Can he finally put it together?

I completely disagree. The NFL isn't a profit sharing organization. The owners make the profit and the players are their employees. The coaches and executives and other employees won't be impacted, just the players. More to the point if teams have to release quality players it means the product will be worse and there will be a bunch of 1-year deals which will hinder long term development. It isn't a good look for the NFL no matter how you cut it.

Nah, it just raises up the have nots. Should be an interesting year.

Does this mean Golliday/Jones Jr. could be had in FA???

I’d take jones if he could be had for less than John brown money,

but I think he’s gonna get paid 10M+.  Golladay is gonna be too much $ unless he wants to come to Buffalo to win a ring and thrive playing opposite Diggs,

James Connor not expected back with Pitt.

 

He’s only 25 

I don't think he brings much more than Moss, no thanks.

Yeah, on top of teams releasing guys to get under the cap, teams will release some guys to get cheap upgrades. It will be interesting to see how this year will effect the next CBA negotiations.

It will be interesting to see the impact and how teams exploit it to get cheaper contracts for the year, but I doubt this has any impact on the next CBA because that agreement was just signed.  The players would need to hold on to this for the next 8 years and that will be nearly impossible.

 

If revenue returns and the new TV deals kick in - next years cap would have been 225-235+ million - it will be slightly lower as the they pull out some for this year.  Suddenly every team is going to be flushed with cash and next years FA will be given stupid deals as competition heats up.  A few years of that and this cap drop will be a long forgotten nightmare as every position rises with the new contracts.

Connor is a turd at this point in his career. He had a good year or 2 when Pitt's OL was elite, but he was awful last year. He doesn't bring anything we don't already have at RB & will cost more than a rookie.

Laywers + millions of $$ at stake = memory.

 

What I'm generally referring to is the owners claim that they can't share more of the pie because they take a risk owning the business so they are entitled to their cut. I think this pandemic fallout will throw water on that argument, if they even decide to use that as a negotiating point.
