  1. That depends on what he'd sign for. If it's a small enough contract then it would just wipe out the lowest signed contract of the guys we lost so far. Once we get the max of 4 qualifying losses, each additional one just offsets a potential new signing. They can sign them ahead of time if they're willing to assume the risk that no one signs Burkhead, but I think they'll wait until they're guaranteed to have a fifth loss for the offsetting condition. Right now: 1) Zeitler -> Cleveland Browns 2) Whitworth -> Los Angeles Rams 3) Peko -> Denver Broncos 4) Dansby -> Arizona Cardinals As soon as Burkhead signs someplace, they can add someone like Robinson. Then once one of Gilberry / Hunt / Peerman / Brown signs with someone they can bring in Andre Smith or another low-end FA. They just have to be careful and only cancel out the lowest qualifying contracts of their FA losses. Right now, I'm guessing they get a 3rd, 5th, 6th and 7th next year unless someone like Burkhead gets a better deal than expected and bumps Peko / Dansby off that list.
  2. You can pretty much rule out Foster at #9 now. http://www.espn.com/nfl/draft2017/story/_/id/18818375/reuben-foster-alabama-crimson-tide-booted-combine-argument Concussions, bad shoulder that still needs 4 months to heal and he can't keep his cool waiting on his medical exams for the NFL Combine. Might be a target to move up and grab at the bottom of 1 or top of 2 but I can't see them pulling the trigger at 9 on him.
  3. I assumed it was because the 2016 League year hadn't officially ended yet. So they could still block the request for a few more weeks which would be a real dick move if he wanted to do the interview.
  4. Because he was put on season ending injured reserve.
  5. This is what I've been thinking more and more. I'd even follow it up with Hassan Ridgeway in the 2nd or 3rd round too. I don't see it as him having thrown Tunsil under the bus out of jealousy, more along the lines of him calling out the hypocrisy of the situation with people hanging from Tunsil's nuts simply because it wasn't public knowledge that he was there. It's still an immature thing to do instead of simply owning it and moving on.
  6. I was referring to Hobson's normal habit of using the Bengals math on cap hits and charges which is higher than what it actually is. They can start with 20 mil of cap space, spend 25 of the cap according to Hobson and still roll over 10. Yes, I know how they do it, it's just funny to watch Hobson report it the way he does.
  7. That's missing a chunk of what he actually wrote and I'm not going to bother with checking the math since I'm sure it's not 100% correct anyways...:
  8. That's who I'm hoping for. Middle / Inside linebackers always fall a bit - that's why he's trying to do the OLB drills. There's alot of money on the line if he can prove that he's able to play as a pass rushing 3-4 OLB. Unfortunately for him though, he's not the next Khalil Mack and I think he knows it, his agent knows it, and all of the teams know it, but you can't fault him for trying.
  9. The media response if the Stealers draft him: ... they have the leaders and systems in place to take on such a high value - high risk player. They are the perfect team to keep him in-line off the field and turn this talented but troubled player into an NFL star on the field. The media response if the Bengals draft him: ... just another typical high-risk pick on a player with poor character that the Bengals are willing to gamble on due to his talent. He'll wash out of the NFL in a few years after playing with a troubled team and a locker room full of thugs that lacks the leadership needed to help him off the field.
  10. Just wait until he fixes their lack of receivers by grabbing Marvin Jones and Mohammed Sanu to line-up with Josh Gordon and Baby Hawk. He's already got a poor man's Gio in Duke Johnson.
  11.         I've got the perfect guy for you two....   connor-halliday-takes-bleak-look-ahead-to-nfl-draft-after-injury   Should have no problem getting him with one of the next couple of picks.
  12.   Yes please.  It won't be a popular pick but I think he fits their D-Line perfectly.   http://www.buffalobillsdraft.com/2015/01/2015-nfl-draft-prospect-to-watch-mississippi-state-dl-preston-smith/   Then again, I'm not as high on Gilberry as most people are and can easily see Smith replacing him long-term.  Could go with a line of: LDE = Dunlap / Clarke, DT = Peko / Thompson, UT = Atkins / Sims,  RDE = Johnson / Smith.  That would leave Gilberry, Hunt and maybe a rookie DT competing for the last spot (assuming no injuries).  I don't see the other guys making it to be honest (Still, Montgomery, etc...).
  13.   Rushing Attempts by Jeremy Hill 2011 = 0 ATT (Redshirted) 2012 = 142 ATT 2013 = 203 ATT Total = 345 ATT
  14.   If you want an entertaining, interactive look at this where you can pick one team vs. another, then take a look at:   http://www.theguardian.com/sport/interactive/2013/nfl-salaries-positions-2013-2014#cincinnati-bengals,cincinnati-bengals
  15. He has yet to play this year, but I'm really thinking Antone Exum from VA Tech would be a good choice if he's available in the 2nd or 3rd - depending of course on how the medical issues check out.  He started out in college as a safety and switched to CB prior to blowing out his knee playing basketball.  He looks like a nearly perfect fit for what the Bengals ask of their safeties and has the size and speed to drop down to corner as well.   http://www.hokiesports.com/football/players/exum_antone.html   This is definitely one of the wait-and-see players yet, since he's just recently been cleared to play again.  Should get to find out how well recovered he is from the knee surgery over the next month or so.
