    Maybe he can help get Watson in the back seat while gunning it like rescuing someone from a cult

    The Bills are one good DE (and Star Lotulelei opting back in after COVID) from having the tools to challenge for the Super Bowl. I hope we're in on this, if JJ is healthy.

    Plus, he's the definition of Buffalo's idea of a "culture guy."

    Bills currently have third highest odds for landing him, but the two ahead of them Pitt and GB, have cap issues, iirc.

    Cowboys may make a play as well after he said he can’t imagine his life without Texas in it. I put them as a long shot though.

    I gotta imagine after having all the personal achievements, Watt wants to go to a contender to maybe win a Super Bowl. Maybe he thinks he can do that with his brothers in Pittsburgh, but if I was him, I'd look at an aging Ben and wonder if he could get me there.

    This is gonna be the first big offseason domino, forget Matt Satfford.

    Basically every team that's linked to him is gonna have to perform some Cap Calculus to get room to sign Watt unless he takes a big discount.

    Or he goes to the Buccs who have the space to pay him but he'd be like 1 of 6 pass rushers.
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    I feel like the money isn’t going to be the biggest factor. At this point he probably just wants to win before he retires.

    I think it is more likely Von Miller ends up on the Cownoys than Watt.

    I thought the Bucs only had 20 players or something signed for next year? If they wanted Watt he would need to play for almost nothing or make his whole 2021 salary a signing bonus. Actually, I forgot the cap isn't real, teams can do whatever they want to get around it.

    Watt isn't going to Dallas. Realistically Watt's going to Green Bay (contender, home state team), Pittsburgh (theoretically a contender, teams up with his brothers), or Tampa (literally just won a Super Bowl, have Tom Brady, have more money than the other contenders because they have so many expiring contracts).

    Pete Carroll comes to mind, as well as Tom Coughlin, maybe? Kliff Kingsbury looking to be the most recent?
    Tom Coughlin
    Barry Switzer
    Jim Harbaugh will show up on lists.
    Paul Brown not sure if you'd throw him in was a few years ago.
    Jimmy Johnson
    Bill Walsh

    They have 30 mill in cap space with 26 players signed to something more than a futures contract, they actually don't have that much money before messing with contracts to make room. They have the least players signed (including futures) of any team.

    The Colts have by far the most cap space of any playoff team, but they also need a QB that isn't Jacob Eason.

    30m under the cap is really good even with the least signed players considering we have several teams currently 30m over the projected cap.

    Classy as always, that Urban Meyer.
    So he lasted about 36 hours.

    Seems a bad sign when the racist shitbag shows greater integrity in resigning than the coach did originally in hiring him. Who does Meyer hire next? Larry Nassar?

    JJ Watt posted a "Happy Anniversary" post to his wife using the red and blue hearts emojis, and a video of his wife eating wings on their wedding day, and Bills twitter is melting down.

    The offseason has truly begun.

    If she was eating wings today, that'd be a big signal, but years ago? Dunno. Still seems a good landing spot but I don't see much hinting here.

    I can't see any non-QB as the first big offseason domino in any world in the current NFL.

    Well the QB market is gummed up with the Texans playing hardball with Watson. And the Rams managed to clear room for Stafford solely by jettisoning Goff as part of the deal.

    So as far as "player that will make a team cut an overpriced veteran that will then go elsewhere making that team jettison an overpriced guy...." goes, this is domino #1.

    Yeah it is fair it is a very important defensive domino no question.

    It is going to be quite the weird offseason because of internal issues in teams, the salary cap dropping instead of going up, pandemic concerns and so on.

    I don't have a Twitter account so this is news to me. I wonder how much he can produce and what impact it will have on Oliver's performance
