Yeah the Browns are pretty dumb, spent $40 million on Paul Kruger. The guy has had less than 10 starts...

Kinda interesting about Welker: He turned down a 2 year, $10 Million deal from the Patriots, that could have been as high as $16 Million. He also turned down $15 Million from a non-contending AFC team.


Quote:
The breaking point came Tuesday in the mid-afternoon before the official start of free agency, when the Patriots and Welker's representatives halted contract talks. The team's offer, a two-year, $10 million pact with incentives that could have pushed it as high as $16 million but in the eyes of Welker would be extremely difficult to reach, wasn't accepted.

At that point, Welker and his representatives intensified their pursuit of other offers, and it helped that some groundwork had previously been laid with the Broncos. Likewise, the Patriots turned their attention to Amendola, who was their top choice if things didn't work out with Welker (and in the eyes of some on the other side of the negotiating table their top choice all along).
Quote:
He had interest from another AFC team offering two years and closer to $15 million, which was the top contract proposal Welker received in a market that didn't unfold the way he and his representatives envisioned, but he didn't pursue it because the club isn't viewed as a contender.

I suppose Rick and Wade and Gary are thinking they'll trade the youth/athleticism of Quin for the smarts of the veteran Ed Reed?

Quinn's safety play might not have been as stellar as we thought it was. If we let him walk and sign Ed Reed to a comparable contract as what the Lions signed with Quin, then I do believe the Texans were looking to trade some athleticism for a little smarter Safety play via Ed Reed.

Remember, too: McNair thinks highly of the Ravens. Grabbing their Pro Bowl, Super Bowl winning safety--regardless of his age or health--will sit well with McNair if the deal can get done.

I think we planned to let Casey, Quin, and Barwin go for the purpose of using all that money for a veteran player like Ed Reed. Barwin won't be missed. Casey will be replaced by the next HB/TE hybrid Kubiak can hopefully pinpoint and draft this year.

So, grabbing a competent and experienced Safety was doable for the coaches and front office. Two savvy Safeties and two savvy CBs, hopefully a healthy Cushing, paired with Watt & Co. might do the trick. Then focus on offense in the draft. ???

Barwin hasn't left, yet, and I think he was our #1 priority all along. Wade has been very clear that he wants Connor back.

What would be the veteran minimum for Barwin? Because that's ALL he would get from the Texans, IMO.

I still think this front office is willing and able to let Barwin walk. He has NO contract with us. He's a free agent, so therefore I could see us playing hard ball and making Barwin sign for pennies. Or else he can be unemployed for as long as it took us or some other team to sign him.

My two cents. Sure, Wade wants him...but the cap space will dictate this.

I think it's a little more fluid than that. More, "If this happens, then we'll do that." kind of thing.

I remember an interview with Vance Joseph before the combine & he said we'd like to keep all our players, but his role in the FA/Draft period is to find replacements for them.

Or then again, that report could be incorrect:

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Smith has agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the Chiefs, who now have Smith, Brandon Flowers and Dunta Robinson to use at corner against the Welker/Demaryius Thomas/Eric Decker trio that they’ll face twice in the regular season.
