    If like to see us get at least one FA edge rusher and draft more than one. It’s possible.

    My plan has been draft a guy at 22. Theyre cheaper than FAs and you get them for an extra year at a fair rate.

    That fixes our pass rush issue for 2021

    I don’t know, now that Bowen is officially the DC, I bet he blossoms into a top 5 CB. In fact, I predict we nickname him Border Patrol.

    I'm with you there. I think we need multiple DL and edge guys. I just don't want to cut our entire defense to get them.

    Not the first time I've brought this up, but the c**ks***ers that run the NFL have zero business LOWERING the cap. The NFL made billions despite the lack of crowds, they have the money to keep the cap the same at a minimum. Lowering the cap in any way is a total BS move.

    That said,
    Another thread regarding secondary and it seems pretty damn unanimous that Vaccaro is out. Thanks for the play, but a Hooker is cheaper and probably isn't a big step down, plus he still has STDs (Special Teams Demand).

    This cutting Butler idea is just bad. Best defensive guy. Shouldn't even be considering cutting him. Restructure, maybe if possible, but that "best D player" part probably means he keeps his contract.

    AJ25, if he can't be re-signed for cheaper, he's gotta go. Re-sign King is better spent money to me. Again, IF 1 has to go.

    Don't waste money on Clowney.
    Try to get a FA pass rusher, even if the absolute best one is not available. I'll take a "lower tier" FA to add in the mix with the guy(s) that get drafted. The draft will be cheap and maybe get 2-3 pass rushers.

    That a first round edge rusher at #22 fixes our pass rush is very optimistic.

    They absolutely made money this year, less than they would have with full stadiums, but they did generate tv revenue which is the lion’s share of their money. Here’s another wrinkle, they are lowering the cap for next season when revenue should be back on track AND new tv deals on the horizon.

    NFLPA should have a problem with the idea of the Cap dropping then.
    If the cap lowers, the current FA class is going to feel it with smaller contracts or no contract.

    If a player is asking for a comparable contract to like players of the same position, a smaller cap will either put a limit on that to where they have to accept a lesser contract OR they're asking price will just be too high, and no one can sign them.

    Owners being cheap skates.

    You honestly think one late first round edge rusher “fixes or pass rush issue for 2021”?! Haha. You must be joking.
