    It's smart. It's a cheap tag.. punters make nothing.. and he is their kickoff guy, and a great punter.. although he is a moron.

    Franchise tagging a QB is the stupid move.. also moves like franchising Bo Scaife.......

    500 yards of production is easily replaceable and if you think it's not then you're deluded.

    Well, that's what we need! Better blocking TE's!!

    That's what is dominating the NFL right now. Blocking TEs!!

    Oh man. If only Cook could block. He'd be like Antonio Gates, or Gronk, or Vernon Davis, or.... Oh wait. That's right. None of those guys block well.

    How is that trolling? Roos is one of the best tackles in the NFL and Washington has probably been our most dependable target over the last couple of seasons.

    Not a huge fan of Ertz. I love Eifert but he'll be gone by the time we pick in round 2.

    I have Eifert rated slightly above Ertz. There's a chance he's there at 40 but I think Atlanta will pick him. Ertz is not far behind Eifert at all though, they are very close in terms of ability. Who knows...maybe Atlanta or another team looking at TE's opt for Ertz over Eifert.

    Smart move by the Titans. I've always liked Jared Cook and talked about his potential... but he's been in the league HOW long and we're still saying he has potential? Sure his blocking sucks, who cares he lines up at WR more than TE. However, we'd be overpaying him if we tagged him. I don't want to get stuck in another bad deal like Griffin/Amano/etc. Smart move to left him go and mutually agree to part ways. I wish him luck in the future.
