Yes, it was Byrd or bust, he's been a bust for the Saints :lol:

How soon before there's a thread in IWTETG?

Probably soon.  Apparently we should sign Jeffery, Peterson, Byrd, and Revis all this offseason

I'm surprised there isn't a thread for Jamaal Charles.

Byrd was a very expensive bust. Charles is 30 and can't stop blowing out knees

Or, the offers they got for him, came in lower than they expected.

While true, that doesn't stop some members of this fan base from wanting just about every recognizable name in FA.

Is OBJ up for a contract? That's going to hurt

Next year. They picked up his rookie contract option for this year.

I like JPP and all but I'm not sure I'm too comfortable with a lucrative long-term deal for a guy who gets injured annually. 

$17 million is way too big of a cap hit though.

I'm hoping for a 4 year, $30-40 million range

It's probably going to be much higher though.

Yea I'm on the fence. Hank is an easier guy to replace, but I also believe he's more of a sure thing. I'm torn.

Very true. Jay Bromley might be able to due a somewhat adequate job in filling in for Big Hank but at the same time, that defensive front didn't seem to miss a beat after JPP went down. I get that Reese wants to keep it together and all but...*sigh*.

Kaepernick may be just what is needed to get over the hump!

Sadly though, if the Eagles didn't have Wentz, there would, no doubt, be a Kaepernick thread.

I'm hoping they can use that fact to their advantage in negotiations. The main reason why I want them to keep JPP is so they can use their first round pick on another position. Maybe a LBer or the best available OL. If they lose JPP, the first round pick almost has to go towards a replacement.

I wouldn't be shocked if there isn't one anyway eventually.

Surprised there isn't more chatter about AP to the Pats, seems like a match to me.  Blount looked finished last year, especially late.

Good point. I actually have this odd feeling that if OJ Howard is off the board, that the giants will shock some people by taking Deshaun Watson.

I don't follow college, so I never have a clue why players rise or fall, but wasn't Watson talked about a year ago as being better than anyone in the 2016 class and the likely first overall pick this coming year?  Now he's expected to possibly be available when the Giants pick?

Yeah but that's hype. There was a time when people claimed that Matt Barkley was the cream of the crop one year anf then he slipped all the way to the 4th round the following year.

Most now see Watson as a late first early 2nd. The guy probably isn't ready to step in and take over 

Watson has a lot of talent but is still a project IMO. I honestly wouldn't be all too giddy if that were to happen

I think Giants would be more likely to take Mahomes if that were the case.

As a Cowboys fan I get the idea of AP as Zeke backup but like Stephen said he would have to take a pay cut for them to make it happen. I'm not sure he's healthy enough to be a starter.

We have to many other needs right now. The Jaylon Smith injury is kind of worrisome also.
