NFL 2021: The offseason and draft thread

Russ probably doesn't even know who the Melvins are.

He probably didn't know who Macklemore is/was either. Or care, really.

I have a feeling we'll see more of him once he's no longer player. For now, he keeps things locked down tight.

Oh this is great.

NFL.com had an article up that included the Raiders among teams that the article said should be contacting the Seahawks about a Wilson trade.

David Carr came in later and stealth-edited the article to change the verbiage so that it doesn't directly advocate for the Raiders to trade for Russ.

Good older brother.

What's wrong with ties?

In the playoffs, play an extra quarter.

Then, Run, Pass, Kick competition for the W!

They should just use NHL rules.

Do a brief 3v3 overtime period, and then go right into the shootout.

And by shootout, obviously I mean a kicker battle.

Literally shootout; wheel out a small ice rink, put the kicker, punter, and long snapper on skates, and it's shootout time. I would watch that.

40... 45... 50... 55... until the first kicker misses.

Justin Tucker approves.

No retirement for Roethlisberger yet. Signed a new 1-year deal in Pittsburgh.

Baker Mayfield saw a UFO. Welp, guess they gotta get rid of him now.

Baker, OBJ, a 2nd, and an alien for Watson.

I Want To Believe

Spoiler:

the Texans actually want Baker Mayfield.

He's their fallback option if they don't get Jimmy G.

Heard the aliens tried to abduct Jimmy G., but he got injured being lifted up in the glowing beam of light.

Take your Like and shut up.

Does the alien race have a win-now QB?

Looks like something in our near future, after Thanos snaps his fingers.

Cowboys giving Dak Prescott a four year, $160 million deal. Of that, $126 million is guaranteed, $66 million signing bonus, $75 million in Year One.

Dak is now the Emperor of the Land of Money.

He could cash out with his signing bonus and year one paycheck.

Dammit, I wanted him elsewhere. At least CD and Amari are still fantasy viable this way.

Glad he got his though. Curious how these numbers compared to prior years' offers.

"$75 million in year one" with $66 million of signing bonus means there's $9 mil of guaranteed money elsewhere in 2021, probably salary.

So $66m of signing bonus prorated over 4 years = $16.5m of signing bonus on the cap each year, and $9m of guaranteed salary would put a floor for Dak's 2021 cap number at $25.5m.

EDIT: Looks like the prorated number might actually $13.2m a year, as there's voidable dummy years on the end of the deal. OverTheCap has the proration at that number and the salary at $9m as expected, for a $22.2m 2021 cap figure.

I like Dak, I am glad he got his. I am sad for him he is still a Cowboy, though.

Can I trade for Dak now? I imagine I could put together a package...

Word out of Cleveland is that OBJ is staying put. My guess is he would've been moved in a year where the cap didn't drop. Coming off injury and a hefty tag means he and Baker can continue to frustrate one another, which is so Browns.

As much as I'd love to see Von Miller on the other side of Myles Garrett, but I think Ngakoue will likely be a younger, better option.

The Bucs are franchise tagging Chris Godwin, which means (A) they likely have some concerns about repugnant dickbag die die dieAntonio Brown's future availability and (B) they're not tagging Shaq Barrett.
