NFL (since 2016)
Free agency started last night and was pretty crazy some huge money being spent.

Osweiler getting £18m a year for the Texans, leaving the Broncos without a QB,

Giants have spent a fortune on good but not great players, Oliver Vernon has more guaranteed money than JJ Watt.

lots more deals but cant be bothered to list them all.

we ended up signing undrafted QB Sam Hartman, handing him a rare 250k guaranteed contract and 20k signing fee. great lad and pleased he round a home, but not sure he'll ever be anything more than a decent back up, but the female & bandit population in washington will be very happy 😂

Good man Aden Durde Hammer, couldn't have chosen two better defensive players as Richard Dent and Mike Singletary as inspirations.

Blimey, spellcheck must like Fight Club or something: wants to turn everybody into Tyler Durden...

Good man, Durden!

Hope he does well in Seattle. Way to go yet, but it's possible a Hammer will become the first British head coach in the NFL...

Had a whiz around some of the commentary on the QB that the Jets picked up in the 5th Round, Jordan Travis.

I hadn’t realised he was the Florida starter who broke his leg last season.

This kid has some serious talent. But got his injury, he would probably have been a 3rd round pick most years. Quick, mobile, decent arm, decent mechanics etc. Looks a bit Russell Wilson (early version).

You never know how players respond to injury, but this could be a real bargain. He can sit for a year or two and learn from one of the best ever, Rodgers, and then - if he’s good enough - slot in. If he isn’t good enough, well, it’s no big loss on a 5th round pick.

Joe Douglas on the money once again.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Couple of decent low-round picks for the Jets to finish off the draft: Allen (RB) is a powerful runner who will be effective in short yardage situations. He can also block, so gives options in two-back line-ups.

Stiggers is a solid defensive back. Already played in Canada’s league (not as strong obviously), and is a pro already. So he’s used to the training, discipline and grind. It’ll be a step up for him, but he’s already halfway up that step.

We also took a project QB (Travis). Don’t know a lot about him, but we took him in the 5th round - so it’s hardly a risk.

You never can tell, but that looks like a solid, unspectacular draft for the Jets. It’s a Joe Douglas draft, which was needed. Our issue is always what happens when college kids with talent meet our coaches! Saleh knows his defence. But is our backroom staff good enough (particularly on offense)?

A safety and CB. Solid pick’s for holes that needed to be filled. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And Big Blue certainly wasn’t.!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
great day two. picked up a beast DT projected to go top twenty but fell because of a foot surgery., the best spot received in the draft and one of michigan's captains, a complete tight end, finally a big strong LT and ending up taking Christian Mccaffrey's brother who's still improving at WR

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Jets took a decent, versatile receiver (Corley) with the opening pick of round 3. Quite happy with that. He can play slot and outside. Just needs a good offense coach (big challenge for us!).

Two decent picks so far, in what was always likely to be a quieter pre-season than last year.

Some teams made really strong second and third round selections. Both rounds were stacked with “decent” talent because so many sides overspent on Rnd1.

Unsurprisingly, no QBs taken on day 2 after six first rounders. It makes no sense at all: some of those early QBs are more realistically second and third rounders - and some teams are going to get lumped with big wage deals for bang average talent.

The QB premium is getting bonkers. It’s the most important role, so I get why it happens. But the gap between hope and reality is nuts right now.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Very happy with that pick south. Even more happy our GM didn’t reach and sell off the future on a QB your not 100% on.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Very young. And very raw Far. But the experts reckon if he coached well. And given time There’s a very talented QB in there.

This JJ McCarthy QB is he any good?

Re: NFL (since 2016)
True, Shorty. Although Penix might have a worse injury record. I’m not sure he played a full college season through his career.

The kid clearly has talent, though.

Anyway, it’s Atlanta’s problem - and thankfully not ours!

Your (Giants) WR is a good pick. I say that through gritted teeth!

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Maybe Atlanta know Cousins body might not hold up over the contract.? It’s a real head starcher for anyone outside the room. But GM’s live and die on the hill of their QB choices.

Re: NFL (since 2016)
Let's be honest, Atlanta will have known there was a decent chance they'd take a QB with #8 pick back when they signed Cousins for $180m.

Maybe they wanted Alt (OT) or somebody more, but he was off the board? But they would have known a QB was an option for the top-ten pick - you always have back up plans. So they should have told Cousins before he signed.

And then, even if they did not, they could have made one phone call to him at any time before the draft and explained an already-embarrassing situation. But, according to Cousins, did not even do that until they were on the board.

It is mental.
