Because he could come back on a team-friendly deal. I would bring him back if it doesn't cost that much. But I would wait until I had exhausted other free agent receiver options.
The cap hit would be enormous. I'm not sure he'd do that for a while. But anybody can be traded, believe me.
That's exactly the reason. They thought the Bears would be worse than the Packers. Yet another misjudgment from Gruden.
If you do some research, you can make a guess as to what's going on there. I don't necessarily believe it's worth speculating on and no one has confirmed it directly to me. So I think it's good enough to say he's having personal problems and could be back next year.
No, his deal is being extended.
Good question. That's something Gutekunst and the new coach need to examine. I'm sure the new coach will bring in his own strength and conditioning staff.
I think an offensive coach is ideal, but I don't think the offensive options this year are as good as the defensive ones. They may have to go defense.
Absolutely. His cap number is $8.5 million next year, which isn't that great for a starter. I would draft someone and let them battle it out. Bulaga could be a great mentor for a new right tackle. But they absolutely need to have a right tackle of the future.
It's a very strong year for defensive linemen and I would anticipate someone good will be available to them at either of their two first-round picks. But Lowry and Lancaster have showed themselves to be good rotational players and with Clark and Daniels back, they're not in terrible shape.
Pettine has said twice this year that he doesn't want to go back to being a head coach. That's why I haven't listed him. He would prefer to stay a coordinator.
One reason to have an offensive coach is that it guarantees the quarterback will be playing under the same system no matter if the offensive coordinator leaves or not. That is especially important for a player like Sam Darnold, whose young and deserves to play in the same system.
It means taking back some of his influence on the offense mostly. Let the coaches coach and the players play.
Absolutely, especially when he's 35 years old.
Captains are David Bakhtiari, Blake Martinez and Reggie Gilbert.
The Packers call heads. It is heads. The Packers will defer and kick off.
It is 42 degrees, the wind is 8 mph.
Natrell Jamerson on the kick cover unit. Same with Kapri Bibbs.
Watch Sam Darnold. he's good.
Pettine blitzing right out of the gate. Lancaster close but Darnold gets the ball out quick.
