I'm afraid of how much money Matt Ryan is going to demand now. I'm hoping he might give a little hometown discount ala Brady to allow them maybe go get some free agents.

The cap is massive btw. Rodgers could get an enormous contract.

Why would Ryan be in a position to demand more now?


The market will set the table. Garopollo just signed the most expensive contract in NFL history and he has he started less than 10 games. Ryan and Rodger's agents will blow this deal out of the water.

It's always cheaper to try and get in early and extend, especially before the cap blows out. And teams start throwing around silly contracts. Matt Staffords contract now looks cheap for example and signed that in August.

Yes but is Ryan's contract up for negotiation already? I thought he just recently signed an extension...?

I want one gm to have the balls to go with either a rookie contract or hall of famer. So when the Dalton, Cutler or Smith comes for the 20 mill say good luck and draft. And keep drafting until a stud turns up.

It'll never happen but would be a great experiment.

Funny old career for Jimmy G so far, a couple of SuperBowl rings and a monster contract for sitting on the bench in NE and being competent for a few games in SF.

So the final part of Brady's "documentary" won't air because they lost the Super Bowl. What a cheeseball.

Frank Reich unveiled as new head coach of the Colts. Asked if he hated or loved Josh McDaniels for what he did Reich said "The back-up role has served me well in my career". Almost as good a comeback as his one against Houston in '93.

Can't help thinking the Colts have got a better coach in Reich than they would have had in McDaniels.

Article on how the Browns coud affect the entire NFL during this Free Agency and Draft.

Toys with a few scenarios such as:

Scenario

The Browns double down on the contract the 49ers gave Jimmy Garoppolo by not only making Kirk Cousins the NFL's richest player but also front-loading the deal with enough bonus money to choke off any other bidders. They then cavort through the draft stuffing their pockets with an All-America team to surround Cousins with affordable young talent.

Who it impacts


Every team that covets Cousins, most notably the Broncos. Every team jockeying for position to draft a rookie quarterback or expecting a Saquon Barkley or Minkah Fitzpatrick to fall to them because everyone else is jockeying for quarterbacks. Every team that someday hopes to sign or extend a quarterback without resorting to multiple seasons of eating the salary-cap equivalent of ramen noodles. Yep, that covers the entire NFL.

The skinny

There's a lot of wisdom to this scenario for the Browns. Cousins takes the onus of quarterback development off a front office and coaching staff eager for some immediate results. With Cousins as a stabilizing influence, a strong draft class could make the Browns competitive in a hurry. And the Browns are so flush with cash that they can sign Cousins and still have cap room for appetizers and dessert in free agency.

The league-wide implications of this scenario are staggering. Right now, the Garoppolo deal is a white elephant, a one-of-a-kind contract that reflects a unique set of circumstances. If Cousins signs a similar-but-larger deal, it sends the entire quarterback market into the upper ionosphere. The price of a Case Keenum automatically shoots up, further frustrating veteran-seekers like the Broncos. Whole economic textbooks will be written to explain how the Packers and Falcons can extend Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan. Drew Brees may end up with his own listing on the NASDAQ. :lol: :lol: :lol:

In summary, the Browns could sign a second-tier (by most accounts) quarterback, set themselves up for an 8-8 season and destabilize the entire NFL salary structure in the process.
