NFL 2019



  • Ok with Free Agency due to officially open overnight tonight I thought I would start a thread for the new year.

    Negotiating in free agency has already begun.

    Some of the big moves

    • OBJ traded to Browns (from Giants) for a 1st round pick, 3rd round pick and safety J Peppers

    • Jags signed QB Nick Foles (formerly Eagles)

    • Rams signed Safety Eric Weddle (formerly Chargers)

    • Jets sign LB CJ Mosley (formerly Ravens)

    • Raiders trade for Antonio Brown (formerly Steelers)

    • Redskins sign Safety Landon Collins (formerly Giants)



  • You mean Redskins and Jets blow the market up for Safetys and inside linebacker with insane deals right?

    Le'veon Bell looks to be one of the last big free agents yet to sign.



  • 49ers also to sign Bucs LB Kwon Alexander to a massive contract



  • Thoughts on the OBJ to Browns trade.

    I think the personalities of Mayfield and Beckham will gel. Whether it has an impact on the field is a totally different thing althougher (probably 8-8 team at best).

    The AFC North is weak though.

    It's essentially only a 2 year deal.

    49ers have also traded for Chiefs pass rusher Dee Ford for 2nd round pick in 2020. Contract for Dee Ford is supposedly 5 years $87.5 million.

    Is he any good?



  • @canefan Dee Ford? Yes. He had 13 sacks and 7 forced fumbles last year. He lead the league in QB pressures for edge rushers last year.



  • @KiwiMurph We got a veteran edge rusher at least. Now just strengthen the O-line a bit more.



  • The CBA ends at the end of next season so pretty much every deal only guarantees money for the next two years (which is pretty normal anyway).

    As a Jets fan this has been a rubbish start to free agency. Missed out on Paradis and basically everyone with even the slightest pedigree for rushing the passer (Barr joins the list of guys to have committed to and then reneged on the Jets; that list headed by Belicheck so good company).

    The Giants moves are creating hope that they'll trade up. A desperate hope for an otherwise forlorn franchise with one of the worst owners in the league.



  • @Cyclops isn't the draft stacked with pass rushers?

    The Giants have won two Superbowls this century.

    Yep, meant to be one of the deepest in years, possibly why we've got so many guys being traded and hitting free agency.

    That's hope for Jets fans that they'll be able to trade down with the Giants and pick up an extra first or a couple of seconds.



  • Sounds like Le'veon Bell is heading to the Jets. Apparently much less interest than he expected, so might 'only' be getting 10-12 million per year. Turned down a deal worth about 15 per year and refused to play on a franchise tender worth around 14.

    If the Jets have really paid in that price bracket, I'm cautiously optimistic about the signing.



  • @Cyclops at that price that's a good signing. A good support piece for Darnold.

    52.5 for 4 years so 13.25 APY. Bit more than the rumours but still good.



  • The Ravens are signing Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas (former Seahawk) to a 4-year, $55 million deal.

    49ers sign RB Tevin Coleman to a 2 year $10 million deal. Coleman used to play under Shanahan's offense in Atlanta so is a perfect scheme fit.

    Coleman an interesting one. The falcons loved him, but Freeman outperformed him. Coleman led the league in rushes for losses as well (or a similar negative stat) but is also a genuine big play threat. Will be great in a supporting role, but not as the number one I think.

    The price is about right though, which is the key thing. Just need McKinnon to play, and play like the number one rb he was signed to be.



  • @Cyclops I think expecting too much from McKinnon is dangerous - a RB coming back from an ACL injury. I'd say that plays a factor in the Coleman signing.



  • @KiwiMurph Tells me that the Jet may be grounded again.

    In other news, Facebook is down and Blake Bortles has been released by the Jaguars.
