  1. The jerseys look screen printed instead of sewn. They may just be mock ups and not the real deal. Final versions could looked different.
  2. He's faster than Ty Sambrailo though..... LOL
  3. Some more on him as well... including a highlight from the XFL. A big body that can catch the ball. Could be a camp body.. could be our blocking TE. Anyone know how he is at blocking? https://www.si.com/nfl/falcons/news/khari-lee-signs-falcons-xfl He is 28 and has bounced around a bit: "He has spent time on four NFL rosters — Houston, Chicago, Detroit and Buffalo. His best year, 2015, came as an undrafted rookie in Chicago, when he started seven games and caught one pass for seven yards. He last appeared in the NFL in 2018 for the Bills. While out of football, he obtained his real estate license and started selling."
  4. A little bit about him: http://www.nfl.com/draft/2015/profiles/khari-lee?id=2552557 OVERVIEW 2014: Played in 10 games, catching 34 passes for 389 yards and one touchdown. 2013: 2013: Played in 10 games, hauling in 34 receptions for 352 yards and a touchdown. 2012: Played in 10 games. Caught 27 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns. 2010: Played in 10 games, catching 13 passes for 165 yards and one touchdown. PRO DAY RESULTS 40-yard dash: 5.03 and 5.06 seconds Vertical jump: 36 inches Broad jump: 9 feet, 7 inches Short shuttle: 4.42 seconds 3-cone: 7.62 seconds Bench: 18 reps of 225 pounds ANALYSIS STRENGTHS Has very capable hands. Catches the ball away from his body and can adjust both high and low to go get it. Carries the seam route well. Will go over a defender to make the catch and retains his focus. Moved all over the field. Used traditionally, from slot, out of backfield and split out. Was effective from each spot. Good body control. WEAKNESSES Played a much lower level of competition and wasn't challenged by same level of speed and physicality. Technique as in-line blocker needs polish. Doesn't run his feet at contact as consistently as he should to sustain as a blocker. Average quickness off the snap into routes. DRAFT PROJECTION Priority free agent NFL COMPARISON Larry Donnell BOTTOM LINE Very good athlete whose background as a basketball player is obvious in his body control and positioning. Has good hands and is tough to bring down but will need time to develop against a higher level of competition, despite his potential to play in the league.
  5. http://www.nfl.com/draft/2016/profiles/laquon-treadwell?id=2555214 PICK ANALYSIS: "We all know he ran a 4.65 40 at his pro day. So, either you believe in him and his game, or you don't. He's a natural hands catcher and will win 50-50 balls. He's also one of the best blocking wide receivers in this draft. He's physical, tough and has great hands. I think the Vikings got a winner." -- Mike Mayock

  7. Is there risk involved? Absolutely. But really, lets look at what we've done so far while in "cap ****". - 25 year old pass rusher coming off the best season of his career so far. - 1st round TE talent who fell behind a all pro TE his rookie season because of injury. He has more upside than Hooper and costs WAAAYYY less since he is still on his rookie deal. - 25 year old running back who was widely considered one of the best in the league just 2 years ago on a 1 year prove it deal. Yes, the knee is a concern, but even with that concern he still put up close to 1000 yards rushing (over 1000 all purpose) and 14 TDs. I think every one of them is well worth the risk.
  8. Tru was designated a June 1st cut, which means he actually saves us 10.7M in cap space... but we have to wait till June 1st for that money to be available to us. That is just in time for the post draft wave of free agents where, inevitably, some valuable lower cost vets become available. I am sure some CBs will be among them.
  9. To put a little bit of perspective on this though, David Chao has never actually examined Gurley. He commented based on observations/news reporting. As this article notes, he was still the fastest player on the field at the Super Bowl the year before last despite the knee issues. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/sports/profootballdoc/sd-sp-pfd-todd-gurley-arthritis-knee-rams-0302-story.html?_amp=true
  10. I'm betting the answer to that is low base salary with lots of incentives. Incentive money doesn't count until it is earned... which would be after this coming season.
  11. The $10M is the money saved from Tru. That isn't necessarily all of our cap space.
  12. Oh.. and to add on to that... with Tru being designated as a June 1st cut, TD has positioned us to have $10M free cap space AFTER the draft. We will be set to be able to grab some key pieces as veteran players get cut after being replaced by draft picks.

  14. Betting on himself.. I wouldn't be surprised to see his deal be low cap hit with big incentives built in.
  15. Na man.. I loved that combo and so did a lot of fans. Those of us on the boards at the time may remember the mod (a team employee, not fans who use the board) told us "the team listened" to us clamoring for it so they put it on the field for us.
