ganggreen2003 Icon : (21 April 2015 - 07:52 PM) Week 5 Bye after the London Game against the Dolphags
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) Rivers is likely going to Tennessee. Would LOVE to have him here but we likely won't make the trade. I'd easily give this year and next year
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 09:17 AM) 's first rounder for him
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 11:03 AM) IMO that's a steep price. I would swap this years first and a conditional 1st next year. Assuming we make the AFC Championship. That would be a 28-32nd pick. Otherwise a second.
MikeGangGree... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:07 PM) Yes 2 1st is a lot
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 01:10 PM) draft is next week, pumped
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:02 PM) What are thoughts on getting a RB in round 1? McShay's newest mock has us taking Gurley at 6. I don't think we should take him that high, but if we trade down and he's available I'd love to snag him, ACL and all. He's got an unreal skill set that, once healthy, will translate readily to the NFL. We're not getting a QB this year without paying a king's ransom, and unless we pay a ransom for a top guy I say ignore QB. I don't want us to take a Hundley or Petty type in the 2nd or 3rd round when we need other pieces (edge rush, OL)
azjetfan Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:09 PM) We can probably get Gordon in the second. I would pass at 6. If QB is not available a pass rusher will be. Our biggest needs are QB Pass rusher and Oline.
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 03:34 PM) any thourghts on shane ray? i see a lot of mocks have us drafting him
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:35 PM) last one i seen had us taking cooper, a RB, and hundley for our 1st 3 picks. not thrilled about that
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:38 PM) I don't like Gordon much. Not much of a receiver or blocker, ball security issues, tries to bounce outside too much, stuffed frequently. Gurley is in a league of his own
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:39 PM) Ray is pretty highly regarded. I'm betting he, Dupree, and Gregory will be our best options as well as edge rushers at 6, but I think that's too high for any of them
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 04:43 PM) Personally love Cooper, I know WR isn't our biggest need but he may be the most NFL ready guy in the Draft. If we stick to the 6th pick and Fowler, Beasley, and Mariota are gone, Cooper is the guy to get. I'd even take him over Beasley
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) i don't mind cooper. decker isn't number 1 IMO and marshall is expensive and getting old
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) and we never draft a WR high
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:45 PM) but o-line and QB are huge needs. i wouldn't take o-line 6th overall, but i think our 2nd or 3rd should be o-line
Jetsfan115 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 05:46 PM) we need an OLB as well. if we don't land a QB i'd like to see OLB adn O-line with 2 of our top 3 picks
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:16 PM) I agree on Deck, not a true #1 and he's had a checkered history with injuries. Marshall has 2, maybe 3 productive years left, which is why Cooper is an option
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:17 PM) And I agree with you on edge rusher & OL being bigger needs, but there really isn't a lineman I'd take at 6
Chadforpresi... Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:19 PM) So the way I see it, assuming Winston and Mariota are taken when we're at 6, that Fowler and Cooper are our best choices, and I'd be stunned if Fowler drops. I wouldn't be surprised (or upset) if we land Cooper
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 08:47 PM) Apparently Tennessee wanted both of Cleveland's #1's and their 2nd rounder to move up to the #2 spot to get Mariota. Still think two 1st rounders are too much for Rivers? He makes us instant contenders and if we make a deep playoff run, it would really be this year's 1st and what equates to basically a 2nd rounder next year.
If not, get Cooper in the 1st and then grab Hundley in the 2nd and O-line in the 3rd.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:05 PM) I wouldn't be upset with Cooper, hes a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:06 PM) Not sure about Ray. Dupree is rising on the draft boards, ridiculously athletic for his size
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:07 PM) Dupree is 6'4 270 and has a amazing get off and runs a 4.5
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Problem is he doesn't have big sack numbers in college, I rather draft a productive guy high
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:09 PM) Vic Beasley is insanely athletic as well and was hugely productive in college, good bet is that Beasley will be a 10+ sack guy in the NFL
NJAzrael71 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:12 PM) Beasley should be a stud but he gets caught up hand fighting if he doesn't beat his guy quickly. He'll likely end up as an OLB but we'll see
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (22 April 2015 - 10:15 PM) He'd be a good fit in our defense, because we could use that speed guy on the outside
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:27 AM) I'd love Rivers, but we should be able to get him without paying 2 first rounders
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:29 AM) Lot of buzz about Dupree going top 10, most mocks I see have us getting either Ray or Dupree at 6. I prefer Dupree, like you said insane athlete for his size
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 06:30 AM) I like Beasley as well but I have a strong feeling Washington will snag him. But he is a small dude, it'd be nice if he'd add some bulk (in Clemson reportedly played around 230)

.@LanceZierlein says on http://sports790.com that Shane Ray will need surgery on foot, 5 months recovery. "Could drop out of first"
Chaos Icon : (23 April 2015 - 10:14 AM) this should change up the top 10
Chadforpresi... Icon : (23 April 2015 - 12:16 PM) Damn that's big. If he drops out of round 1 that could be a massive bargain for whoever gets him round 2. Dupree now looks more like the edge rusher we'd get at 6
MikeGangGree... Icon : (24 April 2015 - 09:40 PM) TEH RANGERS

Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:57 AM) Teh Suarez
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 AM) Vic Beasley is all speed. No moves, no power. Straight up the field. Could have some big games, then nothing in the next
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) If we don't get Mariota, we should be looking at Schreff or trading down, IMO.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 AM) A lot of good edge rushers in this draft... I wouldn't want to take Dupree that high.
Jetsman05 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:00 AM) Until next time fellas!

Why can a team like SD put such a high tender on a player that doesn't have a significant contribution to the team? I mean, come on. You should have to at the very least be a full time starter for a team in order to demand a 1st round pick. Turner doesn't come close to having any impact on that team especially at RB. I mean, LT... HELLO!?!?! I just think it's really lame that they can say he's worth a 1st round pick if he goes elsewhere when he doesn't have a 1st round pick contribution and neither was he selected in the 1st round.

Anyone else have an opinion on this?

That's how it works dude. There's nothing wrong with it. Players can become restricted free agents after their third year, so they are still young players. If the team feels they are a valuable, young commodity and they don't wanna lose the guy for nothing, they put a tender on him. Just because they aren't a starter doesn't mean the rules should change. It works both ways, since the Jets got a 1st rounder from the Skins for Coles.

Basically, the restricted free agents are young guys. The only ones who get attention are the high ceiling ones who intrigue teams a lot. Thats why they are willing to part with a pick(s) for them.

It's not lame, its set up to help teams keep their young players, or at least get something for them. Besides, it's only a one year tender, and if the team doesn't end up extending that contract, they become unrestricted the next year.

because the tender is only allowed ot an RFA which is usally only late round draft picks just coming off of their rookie contract. its set that way this way you can basically get an extra year to see if the player is worth keeping reltivly cheap and w/o needing to franchise a player not worth it and also allow u to gte something back for losing a good player. it makes perfect sense

Thats a very simple question...the league, writers, and public love not knowing the full potential of a player...in the games turner has played he has put up big numbers however can not displayuhis full potential due to the fact hes behind tomlison...no1 knows what he can do in a full season but what hes put up is big so u have to go with that

Haha. I knew what he meant when I read the title, but I considered saying something along the lines of, "me too, i'm really more of a wing guy...".

They're really quite different. Wings are more work. If you just feel like relaxing, I say go with the tenders. No mess, no fuss. If you can get tenders with some buffalo sauce, that's just excellent. But when I'm not feeling lazy, I'll usually go with wings. Wings and football, it doesn't get much better than that.

yea the left over ones(and the ones we made, cause all of them were like this) had buffalo sauce on them, and now i feel like getting some of those leftovers

I'd say, yeah ok I agree but Coles was our #1 WR when he left for Washington. He was coming off a career year and he started all the games at the same time showing his dominance at the WR position. His situation is worthy of a 1st round pick. Michael Turner on the other hand never gets carries unless it's in a meaningless situation. I just don't see how they can say he justifies a 1st round pick. Nothing anyone can say to me makes it relevant either because of the sheer fact that no one in their right mind would give up a 1st round pick for the guy. People like John Abraham and Randy Moss go for 1st round picks. Not guys like Turner who aren't dominant at their positions let alone the fact that he's not even a starter. Who plays in front of him is irrelevant. If anything, the fact that he plays behind LT makes his stock drop because SD isn't losing a damn thing by not having him so he doesn't have true value to the team. He's obviously gonna be traded for a 3rd or a 2nd at the most to a team that wants him... ala the Jets. But there's no way anyone is gonna touch the guy if he's got a 1st round tender on him.

Point is this: SD shouldn't be allowed to put the value on him. It should be up to the league.

with great coaching and great blocking schemes just give it to Justin Miller and let him run down hill.
then tell san diego to suck their tender . we want a power runner in our division let Cmart pick our drafted RB. Tangini wants to build their own hand mand picked team.

Exactly, you solved your problem.

Putting the tender on him keeps teams away from him, thus giving him one more year with the team to prove he deserves a long term deal. A restricted free agent isnt quite a free agent yet, so its not unfair that the players current team can have some type of advantage geared towards them.

And by putting the high tender on him, it not only guarantees them something to replace a young player with potential, but it also scares some teams from going after him all together.

It would be all fine and well until the leaugue fucks us over and puts a low tender on one of our good players... so I think it should stay up to the team.

Turner and Coles are similar situations seeing as neither was a 1st round pick and both the teams could have tendered them lower meaning they wouldn't have got 1st round compensation. It's a fair system as it allows teams to get compensation for talented later round choices who are still young. Coles wasn't dominant at his position when he went for a 1st rounder too.
Also teams will go after him if he's got a 1st round tender because he is talented. SD will get a 1st for him if they decide to trade him considering a number of teams will be looking at him and therefore a bidding war will begin and SD will hold out for the best offer they can get.

Yup. The system rewards teams who draft well and find potential studs in late rounds. Theres nothing wrong with that. The Chargers were smart enough to draft him, and now hes a RFA. They deserve to be able to do what they want with him. God forbid LT ever went down, they deserve the right to put whatever compensation they want to on their own player.

Nothing anyone can say to me makes it relevant either because of the sheer fact that no one in their right mind would give up a 1st round pick for the guy. People like John Abraham and Randy Moss go for 1st round picks. Not guys like Turner who aren't dominant at their positions let alone the fact that he's not even a starter. Who plays in front of him is irrelevant. If anything, the fact that he plays behind LT makes his stock drop because SD isn't losing a damn thing by not having him so he doesn't have true value to the team. He's obviously gonna be traded for a 3rd or a 2nd at the most to a team that wants him... ala the Jets. But there's no way anyone is gonna touch the guy if he's got a 1st round tender on him.

Point is this: SD shouldn't be allowed to put the value on him. It should be up to the league.


Itís a lot more complicated then whatís being said here.

The problem is that when the "RFA" was initially instituted by the league & the union the cap was much more of a concern then it is now after the new network contract. The compensation picks due to a team is in relationship the contract tender (in essence new salary) the player receives.

If the Jetís had upped Coles tender (in essence salary) by about another $150,000 the Jetís would have received a 1st & 3rd round pick for Coles.

The league never envisioned that teams would have enough salary cap to be tendering backups with 1st round compensation.

That's a good point. If they put the first round tender on him, they have to pay him more. I'm not sure how much it is, but it's more than any backup RB should get.
