I don't see the risk with the 2nd round tender, the Steelers still can match any offer. You look at Gano getting paid by Carolina today, 4 years $17 million, my estimate of 4 years $18 million is probably not too far off. The top of the mountain in terms of paying elite place kickers is in that $17 million area, about an average of $4.25 million a season, Bailey got $22.5 million yeah, but that has a lower $3 million average as it was spread out over 7 years.

I can't see a team offering more than the Steelers would match and I can't see Boz wanting to leave a Super Bowl contender.

A name to watch in coming days: Lions’ TE Eric Ebron, whose name surfaced in trade discussions at last weekend’s combine, per league source. Lions were listening.https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status ... 0731118592
Wonder what they're asking? Is Ebron worth trading for? Could save a draft pick.

Ebron has been a constant disappoint in his career, I wouldn't give up more than one of our 7th round picks and I'm not even sure I would do that.

Honey Badger alert - any takers if available?

Cardinals DB Tyrann Mathieu says the team has asked him to take a pay cut.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports it would be a "large" cut. Mathieu is currently scheduled to make $10.75 million between salary and bonuses. He's due a $5 million roster bonus next Wednesday. It's quite possible Mathieu refuses the cut and earns his release. Cutting Mathieu and designating it as a post-June 1 move would free up $11 million in space.

If he's on the roster in a week he's automatically guaranteed almost $20M the next two years. I think he gets cut. He struggled coming back from his injuries, but played well the second half of last year and he played more snaps than any player in the NFL last year. Only 25 yrs old. Any takers?

That would be sweet, but he’s going to get paid and this is the “we do what we do” Steelers we’re talking about now. Besides, we have to find a way to pay the rap star RB the equivalence of the GNP of Rwanda...

Actually more likely to be in between the GDPs of Montserrat and Kiribati.

I'm not saying he won't cost something, but if cut, he's still making $9m this year, technically. Could he come at a small discount, who knows? But, I guess his family does have to eat and all. :roll:

Any interest? Oh wait, looks like he's already been picked-up by that new team out west called..."The Outlaws". Damn, that was fast....

Raiders released CB Sean Smith.

Signed to a four-year, $40 million deal in 2016, Smith never lived up to his contract with the Raiders, getting benched in literally his first game with the team. He was also charged with assault last August. Cutting him saves Oakland $8.5 million against the cap.

When free agency opens Wednesday, former Vikings’ QB Case Keenum intends to sign with the Denver Broncos, sources tell ESPN.

First QB domino has fallen.

QB race is on.

And just as the first QB domino has fallen with Case Keenum to Denver, the first WR donino now has fallen with Allen Robinson intending to go to Chicago.
