How Many Bad Contracts Have The Falcons Done In The Past 4 Years?


Recommended Posts

Because Devonta Freeman's agent just left him after his refusal to take a one-year deal! Who else have we given wayyy too much money to over the past 4 years?? Anybody else wanna chime in? Or how about the guys who actually COULD play but were either not retained or actually given a chance to shine? Like Gono? We could have had the O-Line fixed 2 seasons ago. For less money. Think about that. And then fire somebody. And that's if anyone high up enough actually ever reads this one! Y'all are not doing Matt & Julio any favors with these contract shenanigans besides making them richer in the pockets NOT richer in the Legacy and fans care about legacy. Not how big the deal was you signed or how it crippled the rest of the dunce caps making decisions from doing their jobs and keeping a rotation of young cheap talent always available! Frigging Falcons smh. DIMITRIOFF'S DUMMY DEALS KILLED THE SUPER BOWL WINDOW.

Well we have some posters here that must love mediocrity and continue to live in denial about the salary cap being real. Yep the SB window is closing and the time to win one is now so since the salary cap‘s not a problem let’s hurry up and sign Clowney, L Ryan and a OLB.

Most FA signings are not great contracts.  Even with regards to in house signings, it is tough for a player to play up to the value of his 2nd contract.  Ideally you use FA on guys like Freeney, Clayborn, Crawford, Malloy and Cornelius Bennett...or one year deals like Pow & Gurley are great, too.  But once you start getting into 3-4 year deals it becomes risky 

See Carp, Brown, Ty as our most recent examples.

Amen. You could see the Fail in the Carpenter/Brown signings before the ink had finished drying on their contracts. Just plain out panicky, knee-jerk stupidity by Quinn and Dimitroff to sign these two. And you don't even need to get into how badly they were over-paid to be awestruck by the clownish cluelessness.

Man, I knew we were in for a long season when those two stiffs were signed. Plus Ty and then the Beasley clusterfuk.

And lo, the Four Horsemen of the Falcon Apocalypse were gathered together. Embrace the Suck was made manifest and a great wail rose up from the assemblage. 😝

Hey in all fairness.  Ty got his real shot to show what he's got in the Tampa game with that 40 yard Touchdown.

Beasley, Freeman, Carpenter, And Brown stand out. Beasley and Freeman were straight up foolish mistakes that were born from desperation.  And speaking of desperation, the two sub-par OG’s probably cost the same that Spain would have.

i don’t like the Neal contract, but I understand the why.

These two are the worst. Freeman is a bad contract now but didn't look too bad when he was one of the top backs in the NFL. I was wary of giving him a big contract because of how running backs age, but it was a defensible contract.

Carp and Brown just didn't make sense from a contract or fit. Neither were great fits if we were going to stick with zone blocking. Last year was an awful off season and it didn't look like we had a clear plan of what we wanted to do.

This year has been a lot better and we should have a better season.

Very similar to Mike Smith and Dimitroff in 2015 signing the Samoan Dolphin and the mediocre Chiefs D-Tackle to “fix” the defensive line.

just throw money randomly at the position and hope it works.
