  1. I agree. According to several reports the 2021 salary cap will have a one time jump of 25 to 35 plus Million due to several factors - new tv contracts, a 17th game, two more playoff teams and players percent of revenues increasing from 47% to 48.5%. IMO teams will have a difficult time determining what a top tier FA should be signed for in 2021.
  2. Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said "things are fixing to heat up" in contract talks with impending free agent Dak Prescott. "I know he wants to get his contract in the rear view mirror and we want it too," said Jones Thursday. "We are going to have a real urgency to get this done." It seems Prescott, who turned down an extension that would have netted him $33 million annually last offseason, is prepared to play hardball with Dallas, implying he could hold out if the team assigns him the franchise tag. Jones said the Cowboys don't feel any added pressure with Patrick Mahomes likely to reset the quarterback market on his upcoming extension. The Cowboys have their work cut out for them with Dak, Amari Cooper and top corner Byron Jones all coming off the books this offseason. SOURCE: Fort Worth Star-Telegram Feb 7, 2020, 9:00 AM ET
  3. He had 51 interceptions - the most ever by a strong safety in NFL history. He also had 19 fumble recoveries. Well deserved election to the HOF.
  4. Richard and Kitna not being retained. "David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys will not retain DBs coach/passing-game coordinator Kris Richard. It's been a rough start to 2020 for Richard, who in a matter of weeks has gone from being a head-coaching candidate with the Giants to out of a job entirely. The Cowboys are also moving on from QBs coach Jon Kitna as new coach Mike McCarthy plans to bring in his own staff. Richard, a six-year NFL vet who began his coaching career under Pete Carroll in Seattle, shouldn't be out of work for long. Perhaps he'd be a fit for the Vikings, who recently fired long-time defensive coordinator George Edwards. McCarthy is expected to tap Texas A&M's Maurice Linguist as his new secondary coach."
  5. From Peter King article - "One last point: Is it not interesting to you, or glass-ceiling-breaking, that McCarthy, in his next organization (if there is one) wants to create a 14-person Football Technology Department, has found new plays to add to his playbook by watching every snap of 2019 football, or wants to hire two coaches who would exclusively study trends and propose ideas during the season that position coaches and McCarthy do not have time to look for?" https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/01/06/nfl-wild-card-tom-brady-fmia-peter-king/?cid=rotoworld
  6. Will he allowed to hire his own staff ? Local media reports they want McCarthy to retain Kellen Moore.
  7. Take this for what it is worth if anything -- Report: Mortensen Hearing Roethlisberger ‘Has Some Doubt’ He’ll Ever Play Again https://steelersdepot.com/2019/12/report-mortensen-hearing-roethlisberger-has-some-doubt-hell-ever-play-again/
  8. A few plays that really struck me as very poor calls by the OC. Connor ran the wildcat for the first time in practice last week. So they put him in at the 10 yd line to run it ??? Less than 2 minutes left in the 3rd, up 10-7 , first down at the Buffalo 43. They pass on first down and its about a 15 -18 yard out route which requires a lot of arm strength which Hodges doesn't have and it's a very easy int for Buffalo. The next series Hodges threw three straight passes - all incomplete.
  9. Cain, Whyte, and Skipper are on the 53. They have to be on the 53 for a minimum of three games because they were signed off other teams practice squads. Pouncey will be moved to the reserve/suspended list opening a spot which I think will be filled by Patrick Morris from the practice squad.
  10. Ulysees Gilbert placed on IR - Robert Spillane signed to the 53 to replace him. Sutton Smith was signed to the practice squad along with WR Terry Wright who the Steelers saw at Purdue's Pro Day. He's was a track star who ran a 4.34 in the forty. https://steelersdepot.com/2019/11/steelers-place-ilb-ulysees-gilbert-iii-on-injured-reserve/
  11. Moncrief was released to move Tony Brooks-James to the 53 for the Indy game. Steelers should get a 3rd comp pick in the next draft by releasing Moncrief. https://steelersdepot.com/2019/11/steelers-release-wr-donte-moncrief/
  12. As soon as he signs with a team he could ( probably would IMO) get put on the Commissioner's Exempt list where he would still get paid. A team could try to structure a contract to deal with that but it would have to pass muster with both the league and the NFLPA. It's probably more trouble/drama that most teams would not want to have to deal with.
