    I'm still in shock by DeMarcus Lawrence's new deal. His agent gets to announce it as a 6-year 100+ million when in reality is a 3-year 60 million which will surely be voided or re-made after year 2, and doesn't send all the cap hits to future years.

    It took 25 years, but the Joneses are finally starting to understand how this salary cap thing works.

    I still think the salary cap is communist, though...

    4 years, 140 million the extension for Russell Wilson.

    That's a lot of dough...

    DawkinsINT Tebow free since 9/5/2015.

    Not a bad payday at all. Kinda weird how he shot a live vid in bed with his chick. I wonder how it will affect Wentz getting extended.

    Wentz won't have as much guaranteed money due to his injury history. He better play all 16 games in a season soon. You can use his 5th year option next year, then two franchise tags (the Cousins special) before deciding anything...I would hang on to that thought...

    The team wants to extend him now before he has a monster season and his value becomes much higher. They seem certain by the moves they've made that they have their guy. Where Wentz and his agent are on dollars and waiting or not is what is really interesting. It's a tricky situation for both sides. I hope they lock him up soon to give more future flexibility with climbing salaries. His ability is worth the injury risk for me.

    Holy crap, the draft is tomorrow already? :O

    I think it's very brave to have these evaluations in print. What if 20 years from now...I don't know...the 30th receiver ranked breaks all of Jerry Rice's records?

    I haven't paid less attention to a draft beforehand as I have to this one. I do hope though that the Eagles draft down. They will need a lot of bodies on rookie contracts for when Wentz gets extended.

    I haven't paid attention either, but only because the Cowboys don't have a 1st round pick, so what's the point on checking the top prospects, right?

    In fact, I might miss it altogether...it's a long drive from work this next couple of weeks...

    I'm guessing New Orleans has forgotten about that blown call in the NFC Championship Game right about now.

    Only the Knicks finish with the worst record in the league for the first time in my lifetime (they have sucked for 20 years, but they were never the worst) and lose the lottery in the draft that had the best prospect since LeBron James. FML.

    But this is the NFL offseason thread, so...yeah, FML too...
