    Rams proving that picks don't matter and neither does the salary cap. Laughing at the Packers, Chiefs, Titans, and Ravens in the process.

    And Seahawks, who can't even get a contract done with DK after getting rid of Wilson.

    Yeah I guess some teams don't want to do the auto-voidable years like the Saints and Rams have been doing. Well among them any cap related tricks teams can do.

    Add to that that this is a situation where the team that signed him just paid him the biggest contract, and teams don't want to see a precedent where players with contracts like that are taken out by the rules, it would not even surprise me if Watson came out of this with a relative slap on the wrist.

    The only thing I can imagine is if the AFC North owners band together and try to force the Browns into a bad situation, out of competitive fear. Pretty funny if something we would be loathe to see in any other situation might be what gets the correct job done here.


    It's all just bad politics, whichever way this ends up.
    Won't happen.

    It would open the door for the Browns to question the shitheads Pitt, Balt, and CIN have put on the team.

    Chancellor? You mean Earl Thomas? And he wasn't a known shithead until he went off the rails then the Ravens released him.

    Falcons gotta be feeling like “it could’ve been worse” right now.

    They might be the luckiest team of the offseason, seriously.

    Dean Spanos is being sued by his sister. The most surprising thing to me about this is their parents named them Dean and Dea.

    Over 100 million in cap space next season. They could rebuild in a year's time from now for real.

    Yeah. Tons of cap space, managed to split with Matt Ryan amicably, managed to last-second dodge the Watson bullet, and Ridder's apparently not looked bad in practice so far.

    If Ridder ends up being a hit for them then with all that cap space yeah they could be rebuilt by next year already.

    They split from Ryan because of pursuing Watson, not really that amicable. Cap space is nice, but sorta overrated. It is good to have if you have a solid core, but not nearly as valuable if you are a truly bottom 5-10 team. Look at Jaguars every year. They have a ton of cap, and not enough good FA to properly spend it on (Although even then they manage to do terrible job). Falcons best bet is being bottom 1-2 this year. Either Ridder is legit and they can trade back picking up a haul from a QB needy team or if Ridder flops take one themselves. They get Ridley back next year, him and an ascended Pitts would be good for a young QB.

    Falcons might need to do what the Panthers did and draft a whole new defense. Of course their biggest issue on that side of the ball has been injuries, no idea what they'd look like with people healthy.

    Can we get this mess to end in a sale to someone who'll move them to a city where people care?

    Spanos family are terrible people, dying for them to sell. I could actually be a Chargers fan instead of just a Herbert fan if that happened.

    I mean you'd never struggle for getting tickets, there's so few of them.

    The Falcons will figure out a way to Falcon that up somehow. Won't matter if the O-line imitates the turnstiles at an Atlanta Marta station.

    Ryan's trade really had nothing to do with Watson. Terry Fontenot said that they had started looking to trade Ryan before they considered trading for Watson. Of course that could just be smoke and mirrors. Seems that the Falcons lucked out by missing out on Watson.

    Seems likely that it is just teamspeak after messing things up. If they wanted to trade Ryan I can't imagine a scenario where Commanders give up so much for Wentz when Ryan was available for so much less?

    I'd believe it. There were people who thought last offseason they were going to deal Ryan already. Can't say why you'd want to move on from good and go play the draft lottery, but it seems the Falcons decided they weren't going to be good in time for Ryan to still be good.

    They reworked Ryans deal before the 2021 season to push money into the future to keep their LB Jones. They definitely were not trying to move him then.

    And don’t forget the Watson Falcons jersey shown and how down to the wire it came. The timing for when Ryan left and reports of his outrage could not have looked any more like he felt blindsided and Falcons were left giving him a mea culpa release.

    Gotta say though, it kills me every season the Colts are just a QB from the SB with the best O-line in the league, all coming about after Luck retires. In retrospect I don’t think he’ll be remembered for how good he was.
