PriMeTiiMe Posted January 10 Share Posted January 10 As of today after the Jake restructure we are set for 75m in cap space in 2023. Cuts: Mariota - 12.5m Brings us to 87.5.5m in cap space.Extension: McGary - 5 year deal with a 2023 cap hit around 8-10m. I will say 9m for the mock. Lindstrom - 4 year extension & will lower his cap hit by 5-8m in 2023. I will say we save 5m for the mock. Cap space 83.5m after both extensions. Re-signings:Just going to list the 2023 cap numbers to make things easier rather than going through full deals. Lorenzo Carter - 3m Olamide Zaccheaus - 3m Isaiah Oliver - 3m Rashaan Evans - 3m Elijah Wilkinson - 2m Abdullah Anderson - 2m Mycole Pruitt - 1.5m Bradley Pinion - 1m 18.5m in bringing these gentlemen back. That brings us to 65m to spend in Free agency and sign our draft picks. Free Agency:Just going to list the 2023 cap numbers to make things easier rather than going through full deals. DT Javon Hargrave - 9m Eagles are going to have to start being selfish with cap space. Is Hargrave gonna be affordable for them with so many big pieces already in Philly and 2 1st round picks? Grady's partner in crime on the d-line. They sit at 13m as of today but a looming Hurts extension is going to require a lot of space. S Jessie Bates- 8m They drafted his replacement last year and with so many big names on this team can they afford to give out a bunch of big contracts to players like Bates? Signs point to him walking. Bates has had somewhat of a down year in 2022 which does bring some concern for whoever signs him. ILB Tremaine Edmunds - 8m Again, No cap space and they are already going to have to pick and choose who to pay. Not sure Edmunds is going to be able to be retained in Buffalo. They sit at -6m as of today. WR Mecole Hardman - 6m We need a burner. #2 WR day 1 and allows Zaccheaus to fall back to the #3 spot which is a better fit for his skillset. I think the Chiefs will focus their energy on brining back JuJu over Mecole. QB Taylor Heinicke - 5m As he showed this season the kid can win games. He has a great story and can run when needed. I think Washington is ready to move on from both Taylor and Carson and moves full-tilt towards the Howell/Draft Pick days in Washington. EDGE Yannick Ngakoue - 9m We have become desperate for a rush. Even though he is not a 3 down player we will hand him a nice little bag. Carter will play on the for-sure running downs while Yannick subs in during passing situations. Total: 45m. That leaves 20m for the smaller depth signings, Signing draft picks and money for during the season if needed. Draft: Falcons immediately want to trade back. So many QB desperate teams and with Carolina sitting right behind us we have to sell this pick. Titans, Jets, Commanders and Giants could all be looking. Jets seem like the sweet spot at #13. The draft value chart lines up almost perfectly with value #8 and #112 for #13 and #44. We come out on top by a small margin but they get the QB they want. 1st (13) CB Joey Porter Jr Learns under Hayward and will be our long-term partner in crime with AJ. Love the bloodlines and the way he plays the game. 2nd (38) - WR Josh Downs Keep adding playmakers. Yes he is small but the Kid is like a videogame. Insane burst and change of direction. Good route running & hands. Would be an immediate impact player for us in the slot. Imagine him and Hardman on the field. 2nd (44) - DE Tuli TuipulotuTop notch hands. Needs to continue to add pass rush moves to his arsenal but at 6'4 and nearly 300 he moves like he is much lighter. Even saw USC line him as a blitzing LB at times. Reminds me of Cameron Heyward coming out of college. 3rd (70) - NT Gervon Dexter I think he has a chance to go in the 2nd but his lack of explosiveness combined with his slow get-off I don't know if he will test the way teams would like. For us he would fill the traditional NT role and would happily take him in the 3rd. 4th - 7th Too early in the process to know the prospects enough in these ranges. Depth Chart:Red: Free AgentBlue: DraftGreen: Not listed, Cheap Signing or Late Draft Pick QB - Ridder / Heinicke RB - Allgeier / Huntley / Avery FB - Ratcovich WR - London / CP WR - Hardman / Bernhardt Slot - Oz / Downs TE - Pitts / Pruitt / Fitzpatrick LT - Matthews / Late Round Pick or Depth Signing LG - Henny / Wilkinson C - Dalman / Late Round Pick or Depth Signing RG - Lindstrom / Late Round Pick or Depth Signing RT - McGary / Mayfield DE - Hargrave / Graham NT - Dexter / Anderson / Dalton DE - Grady / Tuipulotu / Horne EDGE - Carter / Yannick ILB - Edmunds / Walker ILB - Evans / Anderson EDGE - AK / Malone / Ogundeji CB - Terrell / Hall CB - Hayward / Porter NB - Oliver / Alford FS - Bates / Late Round Pick or Depth Signing SS - Grant / Hawkins When we really wanna get after the QB on 3rd downs we can run Tuipulotu/Hargrave/Grady as the 3man line with Yannick and AK off the edges.
