I guess I shouldn’t complain, that past year was the very first time in ever that our eyebulbs watched NFL football every damn day of the week. Still… [looks wistfully off into the heavens]
There be only 4 teams left so a number of us are sorta whistling in the wind and wondering what to do. On Mondays I usually did a “Fallout” section so this evening I’m going to expand the parameters and folks can see where their teams are at, heading into the offseason. Many thanks to PFF, Spotrac and Google for the info.
TO THE FACTS!
Likely Salary Cap Victims:
All of these dudes will save their clubs a minimum of $10,000,000 bones
Trai Turner, Chargers
Kwon Alexander, Saints
David Johnson, Texans
Alshon Jeffrey, Eagles
Golden Tate, Giants
Malik Johnson, Eagles
Jimmy Graham, Bears
Geno Atkins, Bengals
Mark Ingram, Ravens
Thoughts- Feel sorry for Atkins, set adrift on memory bliss and all. He instantly shores up some team’s interior D as soon as he realizes he has something to play for. I figure David Johnson is out of the league.
Teams In Salary Cap Hell: (all figures in millions, duh)
Thoughts- Buyout package for Ben? Can guarantee that Mayock gave all of 10 minutes per week to his salary cap guy, if he has one. Arthur Smith is right fucked because Atlanta is all out of good rb’s and sure can’t afford one. Good to see that Philly has supplanted the Giants as the rebuilding team in the NFC East.
Teams In Salary Cap Heaven:
Thoughts- Beware the Colts, a playoff team that can load up should they choose. Five of these ten played an extra game-an indication that the front office knows what they’re doing. (maybe Team just got lucky?)
Unrestricted Free Agents On The Horizon:
DAK!, P. Rivers, A.J. Green, Leonard Williams, Mark Ingram, Bud Dupree, Allen Robinson, Trent Williams, Russell Okung, T.Y. Hilton, J. Clowney, Justin Houston, Yannick Ngakoue, Ryan Kerrigan, Larry Fitz, GRONK, Sammy Watkins, Kenyan Drake, Marvin Jones, N. Suh, Truth Biscuit, Greg Olsen, Corey Davis, Josh Norman, Fitzmajik, Todd Gurley, John Ross, Olivier Vernon, Hunter Henry, Lavonte David, Leonard Floyd, Shaquil Barrett, Brandon Sherff, Jacoby Brissett, Patrick Peterson, Richard Sherman and many others.
Thoughts- Allen Robinson is getting a huge payday-imagine what his numbers would be if he had average qb-ing this year. Lots of one year “prove it” deals here. Dok should be delighted to find out that Kerrigan is on the market. Watkins/Green will be disappointed in their contract offers. GRONK retires.
