    Yeah, I would tend to agree. Our line has finally seemed to gel a little. Let's go into next season with the same personnel if possible (other than perhaps a rg upgrade).

    Maybe instead of floundering to gel the first half of the season, we could actually jump out to a good start. Would be nice to get one of these playoff game thingies in Nashville one of these days.

    Right, definitely above a nice to have which is why I had him above that category. You make him an offer, but you don't break the bank on him.

    He's not playing an unreplaceable level though; he's not elite. If the deal isn't right, you can find other tackles that are close to his level.

    Don't get me wrong, I really like him and I'd much rather keep him.

    What's Nate Davis' grades been like lately? Is he still solid in run blocking but abysmal in pass blocking? Would be nice to have an upgrade there.

    I don't know his grades but he looked great on Saturday. So did Jones. But I think they've been pretty good in the run game and now look better in the passing game because of Tanny.

    I think Conk is about to be paid. My gut says Tanny and Conk will get signed, Henry transition tagged and Ryan will hit the market.

    I like the idea of tagging Henry. What is compensation for losing a transition tag player?

    Agree on the other three.

    I guess my thought on Davis is the talk around him has been really silent over the past several weeks. Which is generally a good thing for an OL.

    I do like the thought of tagging Henry from a FO standpoint, but as a fan of the person, I want to sign him to a 3 year deal. He's just such a good team first guy.

    Like hearing Watson after the game, he said something along the lines of, "Someone had to step up and make a play, why not me?". But then you hear Henry talking all the time, and his mantra this year has been, "Why not us?"

    Yeah. I'd rather tag Tannehill than Henry. I'm pretty confident henry is going to keep producing. Tannehill could just be having an out of his mind outlier season.

    You get no compensation for losing a transition tagged player except that they fill count in your compensatory pick total...so would have a good chance of getting a 3rd rnder.

    This is a unique year and we can use both the franchise and the transition tag.

    I go back and forth on which to use on Tanny/Henry. If you transition tag Henry then I think their is a very good chance that some team gives him a long term deal that we don’t want to match....or maybe teams are afraid to over pay him with a huge deal and thus we let the market set his value lower than Henry would want

    If you transitioned Tanny, I just don’t see a team giving him a huge deal in the 30mil range....I just don’t see us not being willing to match any other offer.

    so if you want to keep them both then I think your best option is to transition Tanny and franchise Henry

    Hopefully we can get deals done with both and avoid any messy tag issues

    I'M SO AMP'ED GUYS!!! WOW WHAT A HELL OF A SEASON SO FAR!!

    Long time, belated Merry Christmas & Happy New Years to all!!!

    For sure the top four have stay - either with deal or tag - Tanman, KingH, Ryan, Conk.

    I also don't see us letting Logan go


    For CB, you need 4 players - I would prob cut Butler to keep Logan if we really had to, but really with out cap, we should be able to afford them all for now. Sims vs Brock, either is fine, but Brock looked good in small sample size, whichever cheaper or that Dean wants more - because best believe we'll need 4 players min next year.

    Really, we need to stabilize the OL, we should be able to keep Conk, who looks like he has finally rebounded. For Henry/Tan, keeping the line steady is huge.

    Sad to say, but might be time to move on from Delanie. Dion needs to go... Wake would need to re-structure to stay, but he's a luxury we might not be able to afford.

    We need help at the end spot, a 3-down pass rusher/run stopper badly, assuming we keep the above, that is our biggest need. If you give Dean Peas, with the current talent he has, a young Orakpo-Suggs type player, my goodness!!

    Keep ryan and cut butler. Why not sign all 3 and tag conklin with a tag? We got the space and the money we have been 30 to 40 million below the cap for years
