That rating system seems a bit skewed to say the least because I would take the latter 3 over Nading.
I don't endorse PFF, but I have to admit they are not the worst site out there.
They have improved their grading over the years.
There are still instances when I don't agree (mainly when they can only guess what a particular player was supposed to do on any given play,) but at the very least, they attempt to "grade" the players on every snap and record the grades.

Obviously, with a guy like Nading and all of his 22 snaps, you just have to disregard him altogether.

VB played as a sub and so you have to take that into consideration.

I think Vandebosch has been injured off and on for the last few years; it's not surprising that his plays tailed off.

At least three teamsd vying for the services of Texans pass rusher Connor Barwin. Likely next man up after Avril/Kruger ...

Bad enough he's going to lose his best friend..... but he'll probably lose his job as well.





Edit: on second thoughts, no I don't feel sorry for him.

Paul Krueger just got 40 M for 5 years with the Browns (don't know the guaranteed number ?). While Barwin won't get that kind of money, just 2/3 of that is > 5 M a year.

Why I think Barwin is a gonner.
Hey, but at least Kruger's deal will leave less money on the table for the next guy.

Default Re: Reasonable price for Barwin?

His production fall off this last year was really significant. Though he's got the athleticism to play OLB when his weight is down.

I'd be hard pressed to pay over 3 mil a year considering we have bigger concerns at WR and safety.

Perhaps I am the only one who did start to see some flashes from Merciless when he got more PT? Can he hold it down as as a starter yet? It's a gamble. But this team can't afford to overpay Barwin.

According to our poll, we have 82 votes for a total of $264M dollars. Averages to $3.2M/yr. That sounds about right to me. If we weren't so cap strapped, or if we could free up an extra couple mil without hurting our future I'd be okay with a 1 year $5M contract for Connor to try & raise his stock, I'd be extremely clear that he would be playing the SOLB position though. Meaning to be seen as the pass rusher he wants to be seen as he'd need to count for 8-12 sacks (along with the pressures & hurries that go along with that).... or if he wants to be seen as a premier OLB, 5-8 sacks along with a strong contribution to pass defense (& there are several numbers that could be used here to determine that, PDs, INTs, opposing QBR, etc...)

I want to do this, so I can move Brooks to ILB, then I'm only having to worry about drafting a pass rushing specialist that I can get in later rounds. I'm looking for a rotational player to rotate with Merci/Barwin/Braman, someone who can get 5 sacks playing spot duty. If this guy, or Braman, challenges Merci for the starting job at WOLB (either through stellar play by them, or disappointing play from Merci) we'll be in fine shape.

But I'm convinced, while Barwin & Reed are damn fine football players, they are not pass rushers. If Barwin does not stay, I need an ILB & a pass rusher.

I may be the last delusional fan that thinks our window is still open. With Cushing coming back & hopefully a healthy Jjo, I think our defense will be good enough to go all the way. With the NFL shaping up the way it is, I don't think we'll ever see a shutdown defense again.

We need an offense that pressures the other team to score.

I fully expect Barwin to be here. He has options with playoff teams, but I think this is home for Kosmo.
