I prefer Tevin Coleman over both

I keep hearing the talking heads saying what a "great fit" this is. I don't get it. Except for the Raider image paired with a high-profile malcontent, I can't see how this makes football sense from any angle.

The Eagles were actually a more logical fit, even though the risk massively outweighed the reward.

I'm pretty sure Oakland (and Buffalo) was one of the worst fits. Good luck having Derek Carr try to get you the ball when you're double-teamed. I expect he doesn't last more than two seasons. Who knows?

I know this is going to sound odd but I prefer never to sign a 'Top 10' wide receiver or running back in free agency. Their contracts are typically too crippling. Sure, there's exceptions to every rule but I think I'd rather spend the money on the lines. Over the last couple of decades, I don't see a lot of Super Bowl winners with these 'Top 10' players. JMO

I generally agree, I'm not interested in mega-bucks free agents (my fleeting Bell advocacy notwithstanding). I'll take a "star" if he'll take less money to play for a ring, but otherwise, I'd prefer to spread the money around on solid, productive vets and under-the-radar guys to fill out the roster. The 2017 free-agent class is the template for how it's done.

I think Bell, Ingram, and Coleman will most likely be too expensive. I think they need to look at the rest and try to find one that slips through the cracks for a reasonable price. That being said, they need to draft one early. No excuses this year.

Suprised Eagles didn’t sign Carlos Hyde ahead of kc. 2.8m is a bargain.

I think we lucked out in landing Jeffery. Top 10(ish) talent without the huge ego. They don't grow on trees.

I literally had typed his name and deleted it. Good value.

That's all you really need. Julian Edelman is not a superstar. He's a winner.

I think Ajayi is coming back. Throw in a second round back, and they should be in good shape.

Don't see a moron move.
100% agree. If Howie pulls this deal (money aside) for a 3rd and a 5th we would all be licking his nuts. We didn't have the cap room but Brown is the best WR in the NFL if not in the top 3 his attitude just stinks. The Raiders stole him for a 3rd and a 5th.

Issue is he will not be happy with the QB under centre, he stinks and doubt they have anyone better especially if they draft and start a rookie.

I suspect Brown doesn't much give a shit about football anymore and wanted one last payday.

Sorry but I would have traded Aggs and his $9mill and change and given Brown the $15mill a year if we had the cap space. Imagine him, Jeffery and Ertz with a decent back..yikes!

Names at RB I would be looking at are Latavius Murray and TJ Yeldon. Yeldon can catch, has some speed and is somewhat successful running the ball. Latavius Murray is a big back that has some moves.

I would look at those two more than I would look at players like coleman or ingram

I don't know if this is posted anywhere else, but I heard on 97.3, John McMullen, one of the Eagles guys said that the Eagles were actually in on Brown. They offered the Steelers a 2nd round pick but they wouldn't renegotiate the contract.

Also Tevin Coleman's contract with the Niners is basically 1 year at $3.5M.

Ya, Gruden isn’t a moron...


“OAK moved up Jordy Nelson's 2019 roster bonus in December 2018, paid him $3.6M just to cut him three months later...”




When asked in December why they would do this so early, Gruden replies, “he’ll be back”


Oops.
