For sure feels like we will probably let him walk. 

Definitely. Seems like Graham and a rookie TE would be good enough just seems like a better plan then overpaying for an above average tight end because let’s be honest he’s not on the Kittle/Kelce level. :tiphat:

I like Hoop a lot, but we are strapped for cash. At the end of the day, I think relying on defense will be a more consistent path to the playoffs and hopefully the eventual championship than continuing to load up on the offensive side of the ball.

Yea definitely need the defense fixed the offense always produces year after year.

Yep, the way Blank and the front office are talking they are going to let him walk.

Dumb decision, pay Vic and Freeman stupid contracts for doing nothing but let a 25 year old top 5 TE walk.

dumb*** front office is the reason our team sucks

I like Hooper and am all for keeping him. That said...

Free was coming off an all-pro season when he got paid. he deserved it as much as Hooper does.

Vic didn’t get anything beyond his rookie contract. His 5th year team option was part of the rookie deal. We aren’t considering a new contract for him.

If it's Hoop or beef up the defense?

I'm picking beef up the defense and draft Hoop's replacement...

As long as we make better decisions than when we beefed up the OL in free agency.  That’s my biggest worry when looking at getting rid of a proven assets to bid high on other teams cast offs

Yea that is always the fear...letting talent walk and not being able to back fill.  His money *could* be used wisely on defense but that's up to TD and co. to bring in the right talent via fa or draft.

If we can get returns like GB did with the Smith boys, go for it. Big fan of Hooper, but this team NEEDS to find a performer at DE That can contribute this year.

I like Hoop a lot but we have so much $$$ invested in the offense already I don’t think they go north of 10 mil with him. I like the Hunter Henry rumor that’s floating around. Henry, Graham and inexpensive vet and draft a practice squad TE with a late round pick. Also number of a vet on speed dial when Henry gets hurt.

What's the HH rumor?

That there is mutual interest between Henry and the Falcons. 
 

 

I hadn't heard that one, hmmm.  Henry seems like he can never stay healthy but when he is he is one of the better te's in the league.  Feels like HH would warrant a decent contract himself, and at that point I'd probably rather just pay the home town boy.  Interesting though, thanks!
