    Exactly, Henry had 4 good games, and has basically had under 10 good games out of 40. I'm gonna need some consistency from him just like we expect from Mariota before we even begin to think about throwing another big contract at the most easily replaceable position on the team.

    To the two people who voted for that, I'm gonna need an explanation.:crazy:

    don’t think we should extend henry yet but 10/40 good games is an asinine statement.

    I voted Henry because I don't want that negotiation happening after next season. If he does anything resembling the last month next year, which I admit I expect him to be top 3 in the league in rushing if not leading it, he'll be very expensive to keep and we can save 3-4M in cap space for a couple of years by getting ahead of that. I think it has the most potential long term benefit of the options overall. If it had just been Byard and not Byard and Logan I would have gone with that though because he is at a harder to replace position and Logan just had a significant injury and we don't know what he'll be coming back.

    Is it really asinine? Find me more than 5 games each year where he was playing like a top 5 back, even top 10, even top 15 back. He was splitting carries, and still only did better than 4+YPC 5 times a year. Prove me wrong, look at the game logs, I watched every game and just looked at them to see If it matched what I remember watching...

    FYI he only had more than 60 yards 5 times out of 43 career games until last month.

    I love Henry, but he's been a bust until last month. Y'all would never push for an extension for having 1 good month out of 3 years.

    Fwiw, Vaccaro takes priority, as he's the player we are most likely to lose if we don't get him under contract.

    Although I don't expect this to be a popular opinion, I think Conklin would possibly be the next player that needs to be addressed. He was rushed back from injury last season, and he played very well before he was hurt. Depending upon his performance in TC, he might very well be the next one to get an extension.

    Byard and Logan are definitely worth signing long-term, and depending upon Conks situation might be worthy of extending ahead of him, but again, that depends upon Conks performance.

    Henry Is a stud and is just coming into his own; I suspect that he has the potential to be another EG if he can get his head straight. As long as he remembers to use his size to his advantage, he's got great potential.

    Last on my list is MM, mainly because I don't know what his ceiling might be and because we can tag him through 2021.

    Tldr:

    1 Vaccaro
    2 Conklin
    3 Byard / Logan
    4 Henry
    5 Mariota

    O-line was a big part of the problem. He averaged the most yards after contact of all his peers in the league.

    Yeah and again that was mainly skewed by Jags and 1 other game, I'd love for him to continue but I'm nervous we give another big contract to a RB like CJ and he's average AF within 2 years and easily replaceable. There are so many other important positions and I think most of us have come to an understanding that if we get a great o-line, we can be successful running with anyone.

    Hard to argue with you about that, you make a good case. I do think that Henry might be something special though it would be prudent to evaluate him further before making a big investment.

    If you looked at my order of interest, he's 4th out of the 5 listed in priority.

    No way I extend henry this year, unless he takes a crazy low deal.

    1. You don't pay for potential. Show me a full good season. Then we talk.

    2. You don't pay big money for rb. It's too easily replaced, and you need that cap somewhere else.
