Kenny Vaccaro hoped the New Orleans Saints would offer him a contract extension before he became a free agent this year. But, with two weeks remaining before free agency begins, the Saints aren't planning on re-signing their 2013 first-round pick, according to multiple sources at the NFL combine in Indianapolis. http://www.nola.com/saints/index.ssf/20 ... thy_e.html
Hmmm.... ain't gotta trade no one just gotta come up with some legitimate scratch [in a cap challenged season] for this guy. I'd certainly touch bases with dudes agent. Get a ballpark figure and see what I could do.

I'd be interested in Stewart as a #2 RB.

I'd be thrilled if they could land an Avery Williamson or Zach Brown type player, but are they willing to spend that money to get it done? Something has to get done with Shazier's contract too. They have to get creative to reduce that cap hit.

Saw an article yesterday stating Shazier will not play in 2018. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/stee ... y-in-2018/
Don't know how that affects the cap for this year. Anyone have any insight?

Kevin Colbert says, “Ryan Shazier won’t play in 2018.” Says he’ll be a part of the #Steelers, but there will be some sort of designation for him.

Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff indicates two-time Pro Bowl DT Dontari Poe will play elsewhere next year after Poe played on a one-year, $8 million contract last season. “Did a heck of a job for us this year,” Dimitroff said. “We really liked his impact for us — especially in the run game — understanding that it may be a one-year deal. We’re in a spot right now where there’s a very good chance that he’s going to go to free agency and land a very lucrative deal. So we appreciate what he has done with us.” https://www.arrowheadpride.com/2018/2/2 ... ency-again
I know, I know where they gonna get the scratch to sign these FA's. Love to see them bring in Poe and add him to the DLine rotation. :geek:

Yes it is DP.

Tough sledding for Gruden. I'm sure a few other new head coaches can relate. Gonna be a lot of turnover as new regimes establish themselves. May find some decent FA talent out there this year as a result.

Quote:
“We’re not allowed to have any contact with these guys in March, either. Not until April 9,” Gruden said. “And we’ve got to make some very difficult decisions on who we keep, whose contracts we restructure, and we’re making a lot of those decisions without having met these guys. And that’s tough. It’s really disappointing to have to make some tough decisions without having met some of these guys.”

Foolish if he signs with Denver... they are a mess. OL a shambles, receiving targets are suspect, defense is about to lose at least one of its outlier good CBs, they already lost the two guys in the middle of what was once an excellent defense, and the coaching staff seems to be poor. Guess it's all about the $$$ if he does that.

Wait, players are motivated by money?

This is crazy.....I thought Bell was gonna take a hometown discount to play for a SB?
