WR Nelson Algholor to NE. 

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that while one never knows, that's a terrible signing. He's had one good year out of six. Maybe he's turned the corner and is in his prime, but I seriously doubt he's the guy you're looking for to be your number one or two, even.

So Agholor and Bourne are making over $20MM between them.

I’d rather sign Golladay or JJSS for $16MM.

Until the full contract details are known, hard to tell what the more realistic numbers are.

2 years at $26MM was reported for Agholor and you gave Bourne’s numbers. I’m guessing it’s not going to be that far off and I’m sure at least this season is guaranteed.

NE had practically no one signed beyond this year (other than a handful of guys on their rookie deals). If they wanted to, they could push cap hits into future years and sign pretty much anyone on the market. So they could still afford one of the guys you mentioned.

Oh in that case I’d sign both of them and not touch Agholor or Bourne.

That is definitely not a number one contract.

Texans should have a good kick return game next season. They're cornering the market. 

They're not going to be fielding a lot of punts and most kickoffs go through the endzone. But in that small niche, they are among a dozen other good teams now. If they try hard they might be top 3 in that department. I kid the Texans but seriously how come they get to be so stupid?

WFT has what top 6 most money to spend and not a single signing yet. What a huge difference from the Vinny/Allen years where we would have overpaid and had 2-3 big signings already. Still hoping either JuJu or Samuel signs to run opposite McLaurin

think they do like Niang....and they get Duvernay-Tardif back as well

LT-TBD

LG-Thuney

C-TBD

RG-Duvernay-Tardif

RT-Niang

obviously still some work to do in FA.....some have KC attacking OT in first few rounds including the first....gut says what was a nightmare situation will be ok by the time the dust settles.....don't think they can afford to make a huge splash at LT in FA but we will see...

So it looks like the Thuney deal is significantly backloaded with a tiny cap hit this year, giving the Chiefs space to make additional moves. They should definitely go after a LT here -- Trent Williams would be incredible, Riley Reiff would be solid (and not quite as expensive). Can address C in the draft if they're not comfortable with Allegretti there. At pick 31, finding a starting C is way easier than finding a starting LT.

Less per year than Agholor?! :loco:

Hard to say. Without knowing specifics of contracts yet, really difficult to know what is real money and what is fluff. Agholor is said to be $11M a year and $2M in incentives.

WR Corey Davis to Jets. 3/$36.5M with $27M guaranteed. 

Nice, I was hoping Juju wouldn't go there to die. Now Davis can be the same guy he was in Tennessee but maybe just maybe more attempts in the passing game? Hard for there not to be.

Is he really better than Meyers and Harry for that kind of money?

A half eaten, moldy ham and cheese sandwich is better than Harry. Meyers is ok but I am thinking they see Bourne as the next version of Edelman or Welker in the slot.

Phillip Lindsay got lowest tender by Broncos, which likely frees up him to leave. Hope that guy makes himself some money.

Me too. Love that kid and he plays his butt off. Denver doesn't deserve him ;)

Good for all of us that have Saints skilled players. :pickle:

I've personally had total confidence he would sign and win the job because of those Saints skill position players. To much money tied into a WR and pass catching specialist RB to go with Taysom as more then a gadget.

Seems like good for both sides, and if he proves it this year he'll get a massive payday in 2022. 

Absolutely massive stakes for Winston this year. Win the job and do well and we see what QB's are making an of course he's young enough to sign two more extensions. Stumble after a year of getting coached up by Payton after the team that just got rid of you won the SB and he's heading for career backup career.

Interesting...they had him for a full year and still only gave him a one year deal...gonna be real interesting because I think Hill is gonna play a bigger role without Brees as well.

One year, $12M.

Seems like a lot for someone outperformed by Fitzpatrick and the 43-year old GOAT in TB, and who couldn't beat out Hill. I guess that's the market for a guy with QB with his potential.

I am guessing he had no other options and did not have a ton of hand as well.

I doubt that is true. WFT, 49ers, Carolina, I bet all 3 at least kicked tires...maybe we'll hear about offers made soon.

Bears went after him per Fowler but either way not really relevant to wanting to be signed for more then one year.

One of the story lines I find to be most compelling is when a Player chooses to bet on himself. I'm not a big fan of Winston, but if that's what's going down with this deal, I admire him for doing so.

Drew Rosenhaus is killing it in free agency. Aaron Jones, Jonnu Smjth, Davon Godchaux, Jalen Mills, Trent Brown, Shaq, Gronk.

I read like a few hours ago he was up to $250M in contracts signed already, and what is impressive is it's no QB's and generally speaking not the most sought after paid positions on the open market.
