Posted 25 Aug 2016I'm not even going to speculate. To much of a headache but " major mad props to you" for putting the brain power and time into this.
I haven't checked Thompkins cap value but if he is cheap he is reliable with great hands. Quincy is big but his hands are still suspect. Unless the other rookies really look good I feel Thompkins should be on the roster. His hands may be the best on the team. He catches 9 of 10 catchable passes thrown his way.
thompkins counts 1.671 mil against the cap. it's all salary nothing guaranteed and no dead money if released
If we replace him with anderson or marshall they would cost 450k making it a net savings of 1.221 million which can help us out majorly next year when it carries over.
As it stands now, I don't see him contributing. He isn't passing enunwa for the 3rd WR spot due to his size and the offense we run. and now he's being outplayed by a 7th round rookie and 2 UDFA rookies. and he doesn't return punts or kicks like ross does. I cna't see him ever stepping on the field unless decker, b-marsh, and enunwa are all hurt. So why keep him around at more money and give up a talented young WR who could grow into a big role?
And once Devin Smith is off the pup list try to shop him or release him. I see no way him getting better. Only good attribute is speed. Far to many bad attributes and very injury prone. Not to mention on both injuries he has been well behind average healing time. Just to many negatives
Smith is under his rookie deal for this year plus 2017 and 2018. He has a cheap and low cap number for all 3 years. He actually cost less then thompkins every year except 2018 when he would cost 200k more then thompkins cost now. Not only that but cutting him now would cost us 1.2 mil in cap space, meaning out 1.4 mil room turns into only have 200k this season meaning next year we start off negative in the cap. Financially cutting smith hurts the team more then just keeping him on the bench or IRing us. him being on the roster is more helpful to us even if he doesn't play.
Outside of the fact it would be bad to cut him because of the cap, he is a 2nd round pick from last year and big macs 2nd pick he's made as a jet GM (williams was the first) we have 2 older WRs starting and I'm sure mac sees him as an eventual starter. he is still very young and has potential. Giving up on him this soon wouldn't be a good idea. His injury was a freak injury. a broken rib that punctured his lung. nothing that would hurt his effectiveness when he comes back (like a knee injury would)
Posted 25 Aug 2016Not sure about the roster but when is this team going to get a crushing dlineman? Bend but don't break philosophy sure as hell isn't working. F*ck bend but don't break.
I know it's preseason but but im really concerned about our dlineman.Except on the few occasions when Jenkins was healthy in 09,10 this team hasn't had consistent diline penetration in well over a decade.
It looks like it's the same damn thing this year. Everyone complains about the secondary but the core of every good or great defensive is good or great dlieman.
A team can have average corners, and safeties, if they have a dine that can breakup plays and constantly get penetration and pressure.A stellar linebacker helps too. We have Wilkerson and yet still this team always makes teams with decent online's and average qb's and even backup qb's look great with all kinds of time in the pocket.
Colt Mccoy is a backup that couldn't make it as a starter and he looked like a probowler against our 1st string defense last week.
Getting really tired of seeing almost every qb throw for 300-400 yards against this team every year.
OUr D hasn't really been at full strength, it will be to start the season. Not only that but teams play very vanilla in preseason. and we have a very young LBer group with lee, mouldon, and jenkins all being rookies or in their 2nd year.
Our d-line will get plenty of pressure. we know what wilk can do, we know what rich can do, and williams has looked very good in pre season so far. I could see 30 sacks between the 3 of them to be honest. 12 for wilk, 10 for rich, and 8 for williams
Posted 23 Aug 2016Updates added 08-23-16 after week 2 preseason
Removed Geno and Added Petty - we can save cap room and for all intents and purposed, petty has played as well as geno. plus geno is gone after this year no matter what and fitz is a FA so releasing petty doesn't make sense. leaves us with only hackenberg after this year.
Devon Smith moved to PUP, replaced with R anderson (Smith won't count against the roster for a while. So his spot i added robbie anderson who has looked great in preseason so far
Removed Ross added J marshall - another rookie that impressed at WR and as a returner. Should keep him over ross. ross we know his ceiling. marshall could be a future starting WR for us. Ross will never be that
Removed Kellen Davis added Zach Sudfeld - davis is just a bum, i can't see keeping him on the roster. Sudfeld is younger and cheaper and has looked much better
Posted 14 Aug 2016Milliner was actually in position on both of those plays. Robinson is just that much better. Those passes easily could have been broken up and we would all be saying. "Wow Milliner looks great"
One long pass he was burnt so bad it would have been an easy td on a better throw. QB way under threw it to allow milliner to catch up but Robinson still came down with it

Posted 9 Aug 2016I say Breno and Harris are both gone, B-Marsh gets an extension which will push money out. S-Rich gets traded after we tag him.
If Fitz performs and takes us into the post season, his number will change with an extension. Mangold possibly restructures to give minimal savings of a couple million.
Question as it stands now is if that -2.5 is taking into consideration the expected rise in the cap?
yes it takes into consideration the rise in cap
