    It's not that easy. We don't have the luxury of knowing the master plan but, despite having a better season, Butler was part of a horrible defense overall. We might be seeing quite a few changes in the front seven and paying $14.2M to a 31-year old CB who has really had only one good season in the last three might prove difficult.

    Certainly, the Titans will want to keep him. I think they wanted to keep Ryan after last season too and just couldn't afford the luxury.

    The Colts have plenty of money to go after whatever player they want...they have like 80-90mil in cap space. They certainly do have decisions to make, but they are still going to be a tough team next year.

    TJ, pretty sure adoree is only guaranteed for injury. So cutting him would save about 10 mill. But I agree with you. You can’t make the decision based on this year’s performance since he missed the whole damn season.

    Well that all depends on their QB I would say. With the right one, yes they will be.

    Yes and no... they were a formidable team with Brisset at the helm.

    I don’t disagree with that. They have plenty of cash. But having cap room doesn’t mean they will be good. Who is their QB, who is the back up. Who replaces TY Hilton or do you give him a huge deal? They still have to make those decisions and their is no guarantees. Ask JRob. Free Agency can not work out even if you have the money. Missing pieces are still missing pieces. Sometimes the devil you know .....

    Or, you can actually look at the games and realize, aside from losing by 14 to Baltimore and 19 to us, they only lost by single digits... also, they beat us in the first game.

    So yeah, absolutely formidable.

    Losses are losses. Most NFL losses are close. And they went 2-7 in there last nine games. And we lost to them with Mariota at the helm, by two. No way we lose with Tannehill playing. You can count them formidable with Brissett if you want. I would not. Happy to agree to disagree.
