  1. Not in a hurry to get rid of him either he plays a solid role on this defense they only truth I believe is though if Falcons do draft TJ Watt the business wise and logic would state he probably will be cut cause as June 1st cut that's 4 million dollars saved and TJ Watt is very similar to Brooks with a lot more upside. I don't even know if Falcons are truly interested in Watt but if they are and is picked up I understand if Reed was then cut...4 million back the cap (June 1st) would go along way to getting a another Vet in other positions of need or to a new contract for Trufant or Freeman so business wise I see how that would go down
  2. I believe it will most likely stay the same for this year unless we actually perhaps drafted T.J. Watt which if that happens Reed being cut would be a given to save 4 million on cap as June 1st cut and TJ Watt could play Reed's role with a whole lot more upside too.
  3. It all depends your gonna pay them respectable around same ball park of averages for tops at those positions but contract structure and cap hits can vary all sort of ways particular the first year and last year of contract. Looking at RB #s Top 5 pay for Freeman would be between 6-8+ million a year and most likely first year will be the lower end, Trufant depending on how structured could be anywhere from 8-14 million a year I just don't see while paying Sanu/Jones big money spending another 6+ million on Gabe cause you can find similar players as a slot with talents in Draft or diamonds in rough around league like Gabs, but glad he got a bump this offseason with the tender and hope he does play well next year and earns that bigger payday
  4. As far as Cap hits in their new contracts particular the first year or so we probably focus on resigning Freeman, Trufant, and either Hageman/Poe depending on which one played best in their eyes Freeman 1st year cap# probably looking at between 4-6+ million dollars Tru probably looking at 8-9 Million Poe might be more pricey if he plays well compared to Hageman but it will allow depend on his impact with rest of defense if plays well he'll be every bit worth 10+ million in a longer term contract Gab good but not worth a larger contract from this teams prospective and Ish never gonna be a big contract guy unless a lower team wants to pay up... So we could still have roughly 30 million or so in 2018 after all major signings next off-season.
  5. Going into Next Off Season I believe the Falcons are roughly between 47 to 53+ million over the cap depending on where you look we have to spend to keep guys like Poe and Freeman around if deserved Clayborn contract expires this year and Brooks Reed and Andy Levitre contracts are both very cutable at 4.5 and 7 million respectfully. So we realistically could be going into next off-season with 60+ million dollars in Cap. That's without figuring a resigning of Matt Ryan which may actually drop his cap hit that first year if they would like by a million or so etc, We have plenty to resign guys like Poe or Hageman, Freeman, J. Matthews, Trufant if he's not already signed before then and still have plenty left over and then Alford contract is basically setup which in 2 year's he could be cut with huge savings
  6. He's has ability to play same role as Brooks Reed next year but has much much more upside and athletic ability. I like Reed but if you do draft TJ Watt basically it would allow you to choose to cut Brooks Reed saving 4+ million as a June 1st cut so business wise it does make sense in that manner as well.
  7. I don't believe that whatsoever... It's widely known he played a whole bunch of snaps just about more then any other DL in the league and he was asked to be a nose tackle and limit his pass rushing chances. Here he will be allowed to stay fresher in a rotation and be in a 4 man front which will give him opportunities as well
  8. True should target another DE in draft but Clayborn wasn't chopped liver when healthy
  9. The Lamp Pick or at least getting one of Lamp, Freeney, or D. Johnson makes all too much sense with the first 2 picks we have because anyone of them should be ready to start and improvement from Chester and after next year we have Levitrie last contract year which was basically structured in a way to cut him no way we keep him when we can save 7+ million and hardly any dead money so at end of next season we would be in spot that 2 guard spots would be swapped out perhaps the kid we got last year will be one of those but mostly like we got to get other in draft this year.
  10. actually found another article from 2 days ago about his pending visit to Miami seems like Josina is just reading already known details and then expanding a little bit still in GA and "expects" to visit Miami
  11. This was scheduled yesterday before he even got to ATL so with that said he may or may not be going to Miami meeting
  12. Sidetracked back to Poe...Bring em home
  13. I have my concerns too, I mean several Guards in this draft I believe could step in day 1 and at least perform up to Chester level as a Rookie and most likely better. Lamp by far the best but both Freeney and D. Johnson would start day 1 at that spot as well so good position to be in to maybe get one of those guy in first 2 picks depending on how draft setups
  14. I have my doubts about just switching to guard all of a sudden but comparing Mangold prodigy to where Chester performance has been at at this point on paper its much improved
