    Free agency bro
    Players gotta get paid

    here is how I look at every draft
    If we have 7 picks:
    1 should be a instant starter
    3 contributors/future starters
    2 projects
    1 bust or won’t make team

    ESPN.com: NFL - Drafted players don't stick around


    Please read this article. It’s the best I can find that explains why draft picks don’t stick around. This isn’t new and isn’t a problem for JRob. NFL teams start turning over every 5 years.

    The average career for an NFL player, THE AVERAGE is 3.3 years.

    It’s cool to have an opinion, we all do and most of us are wrong. But at least try and have one that has some foundation in fact or knowledge.

    So Duprees cap hit is a little over $5 million. So that puts us at around $18.5 million minus whatever Jenkins cost (still unknown).

    Also have to subtract Jayon, Sambrailo, Firkser, and Johnson.

    Draft picks will also equal about $9.5 million.

    Yeah, we have plenty of room for 2 more contracts like Dupree's. I don't think we will do that though. Maybe one more significant signing and then draft the rest.

    And we can restructure Sadfold to free up 8.5. Not the we will, but we could. Also, draft picks would cost 9.5 only if we add all of them to the week 1 roster and don't lose any other contracts. Probably net or 3 or 4 mil actually

    We usually keep most of the draft picks on the roster. Except for probably our 7th rounders.

    Yes, but this year may be a bit different with the cap crunch. If we sign other guys, then we will cut guys. If not, we will keep. Either way, it is work-able
