  1. The Dallas paper guess a $28M yearly average with $60M guaranteed. That may be optimistic given what QB's like Cousins, Stafford, and Garoppolo signed for. Russell Wilson's upcoming deal will affect this too since WIlson is looking to pass what Aaron Rodger got. Stephen Jones said Dak's contract needs to be team friendly too. It will be interesting to see what happens.
  2. Lee was suspended for the final four games on 2018 violating the substance abuse policy. He will be in his fourth year in 2019 and his salary is only 1.8M but if his fifth year option (for 2020) is not picked up by the acquiring team he will be a UFA at the end of the 2019 season. The deadline to pickup the fifth year option is the first week of May 2019. A team can rescind the fifth year option up until the first day of the 2020 NFL year. The bigger issue I think is Lee's reputation of being immature and the repeated problems he had on the Jets. See below -
  3. It looks like Julio Jones is getting an extension that will average $20M a year on a 4 or 5 year deal. I wonder how AB and OBJ will react to that.
  4. Justin Houston signed with the Colts - 2 years 24M.
  5. Moncrief's contract details. I think it is a very good deal for the Steelers. From SteelersDepot "According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Moncrief’s two-year contract totals out at $9 million and includes a $3.5 million signing bonus. Moncrief’s base salaries for the 2019 and 2020 are reportedly set to be $1.5 million and $3.5 million, respectively, according to Pelissero. Moncrief’s salary cap charges in those two years are scheduled to be $3.25 million and $5.75 million, respectively. He is due a $500,000 roster bonus in 2020, according to Joel Corry of CBS Sports."
  6. They have JuJu, Washington, Moncrief, Rodgers, and Switzer. Rodgers and Switzer are similar so I don't know if both make the 53. In the draft I expect they have a short list of the Devins, WR Hakeem Butler, and OLB Brian Burns. All four could very easily be gone by their pick but if the Devins and Burn are gone I think they take WR Butler. I don't think there will be any room for DBH and Hunter. I do think they will try to trade up for Bush but I don't think he makes it past pick 12. Tampa Bay, Detroit, Denver, Cincy, and Green Bay all need ILB.
  7. Year Steelers' offer Franchise tag Current deal 2018 $19.5 million $14.544 million $0 2019 $13.5 million $14.5 million $14.5 million 2020 $12 million $11.5 million $11.5 million Total $45 million $40.544 million $26 million
  8. There is no guaranteed money after the 2020 season so the Jets can cut him and only have a dead money cap hit of 4M. The Steeler's deal would have paid him 33M in the first two years and 45M in the first three years. Bell got 12.5M for 2017 and then could have signed the Steelers offer and got a total of 33M more in 2018/2019 and have 45.5M by the end of the 2019 season. True the Steeler offer only included 10M guaranteed at signing but also included another 10M due within days of signing. It look's like Bell's only decision was to accept the Jets offer or retire and pursue his music career. I don't think this turned out anywhere close to what he was expecting.
  9. From Jeremy Fowler ESPN " Steelers ILB L.J. Fort signs a three-year deal with the Eagles that can reach up to $10 million with playing time incentives, according to a source. The deal includes $1.9 million in guarantees. Steelers made efforts to keep him but he had other suitors." I wanted Pittsburgh to resign him and it sounds like the contract he signed was doable.
  10. Earl Thomas signed with Balt 4 yrs $55M with 32M guaranteed. !!
  11. So after all the drama Gurley is still the highest paid RB. Per Adam Schefter - " At $13.125 million per year, Bell slides in between Todd Gurley and David Johnson as the league's second-highest paid back."
  12. Steelers sign CB Steve Nelson 3 yrs 25.5M -- this is a very good signing. From the USA Today - " Nelson is only 26 years old, he’s versatile, and he is coming off the best season of his career while heading into the prime of his career. He’s started 38 games and has 35 passes defended and four interceptions during those games. Those numbers look a lot like the numbers that Darius Slay had when he was extended by the Lions just two years ago. Nelson’s projected contract will be a similar value to Slay’s contract, give a few million dollars for cap inflation. Guaranteed money will likely be between $15 and $25 million." More info here -
  13. His 2018 salary was $790,000. The veteran minimum salary for a 4 - 6 year vet in 2019 is $805,000. I expect that's what his contract will toll at. I just saw his salary will be $473,000 - the reduction due because he in on the Reserve/PUP list.
  14. White could go in the top ten and Bush will go no later than the top 20. Wilson I think is a second round pick.
  15. I think the Steelers can rescind Dupree's fifth year option up until the 2019 NFL league year begins at 4PM ET Wednesday March 13th. If they rescind it before then Dupree becomes a UFA. At 4PM on March 13th Dupree's $9.2M salary becomes fully guaranteed - up to time it is only guaranteed for injury.
  16. Teams are already spending crazy $$ on FA's today - Kwon Alexander 4 yrs 54M - what will CJ Mosley want after seeing this contract. Trent Brown 4 yrs 66M
  17. I believe it can't be a 'done deal' until the trade is submitted to the NFL office on the first day (or later ) of the new league year. Either team could back out before then. From the NFL site " March 13 The 2019 league year and free agency period begin at 4:00 p.m., New York time. The first day of the 2019 league year will end at 11:59:59 p.m., New York time, on March 13. Clubs will receive a personnel notice that will include all transactions submitted to the league office during the period between 4:00 p.m., New York time, and 11:59:59 p.m., New York time, on March 13."
  18. And currently he is the number two highest paid WR at 17M/yr average. OBJ is highest at 18M/yr average. Of course the big difference is guaranteed money.
  19. This is all about money - always has been. "MMQB's Albert Breer reports Antonio Brown wants to be the highest-paid receiver in the league."
  20. Gilbert has been traded to the Cardinals per Scheftner. Late sixth round pick.
  21. Vernon base salary is 15.25M in 2019 and in 2020. So $30.5M for the two years left on his contract.
  22. Steelers shopping Gilbert after extending Pouncey and re-signing Foster.
  23. Baltimore did not tag him because the tag for linebackers include the OLB's who are edge rushers like Von Miller so the tag amount is $15M+. They still want to sign him but did not to tag him and have Mosley think the $15M is an amount Balt is willing to pay.
