    Did you see the numbers on those tags? No way we can afford them with our cap situation. It is just not happening.

    Our cap situation will improve with cuts and restructuring. When they know the cap number, they will know if that makes sense or not. My gut tells me JR believes he can sign 2nd and 3rd tier guys and do just as well. If so, I wish him well. We are not exactly the kings of FA.

    I don't see any of them signing a deal that would bring us a 3rd rnder. To get a 3rd the APY of the deal would need to be around 14mil. Also I would assume that we would sign a FA or 2 ourselves which would cancel out anyone we lost. If we aren't going after any top tier FAs then we could wait until after the draft to sign anyone and then they would not count as a qualifying FA and would thus not cancel out anyone we lost.

    I agree it will, but even if you get say 40 mill in cap space are you going to pay CD 15 mill? Or Jonnu close to 10? You have to improve the pass rush and fill a ton of FA spots. You just can’t give one of these players a tag. It will take up too much cap space. You could re-sign them but not tag them. No way we tag any of these players.

    I think Corey Davis could sign for 14+

    Well, that goes back to the consistency theme used with the coaches. Do they feel that keeping as many pieces of the offense together is the best thing? I guess we will find out over the next several weeks. My personal opinion is we don’t keep many of these guys and load up on those 2nd and 3rd tier guys. That seems to be the Robinson way for the most part.

    Tough market for CD with Robinson, Godwin, Golladay, Hilton and Smith-Schuster being FAs too
    Not that I can't see him getting 14 mil, but it will shake out after those others sign imo

    This is why i think he will be around 12m, maybe even less. I think it's important for us to bring back guys thst are familiar with our team/system vs bring in new players. I think we need to bring back jonnu and jayon first. Let cd test the market, if we can het him at 12m or less bring him back. Then worry about fas.
