  1. Who's to say the Bengals won't offer Higgins top 10 WR money? Just because they don't offer Bates the money he wants doesn't mean they won't give it to Higgins. The Bengals have historically favored paying offensive players over defensive players.

  4. Meh...I don't think it's that. The Bengals aren't willing to make Bates a top paid FS, and for good reason. He doesn't make that kind of impact. Higgins does make that kind of impact and historically the Bengals have paid those players.

  5. The team should find out if Adeniji or Prince have improved their pass blocking enough to succeed Williams. Jonah is under contract for 2023 so we're ok for a bit and can draft a project if need be. But he hasn't lived up to his draft status and doesn't deserve a raise over this 5th year option number.

  6. Between Higgins and Boyd, it's an easy call. Pay Tee. If it means letting Mixon or Boyd go, so be it. We can find a decent RB or WR3 in round 3 or 4 of the draft.

  7. Actually, Mixon would have tried to outrun Tuna in a Can, gotten tackled around the ankles, and then slammed the ground in disgust because he almost broke one.

  8. On the Perine killer stiff arm, if that had been Mixon he would have been shoved out of bounds for a three yard loss.

  9. The play before that 3rd and one is even more egregious. How does the RB run out of bounds untouched, short of the sticks? It's so stupid on so many levels, I gotta ask the question, was this game fixed? To assume those two plays were just bad plays/coaching is quite a leap.

  11. Few things more pathetic than saying something incredibly whiny and stupid then accusing other people of "crying about it" when they're actually pointing & laughing. That's some All-Pro level of butthurt on display.

  12. This is the never ending debate for players in any sport - play for championships or play for maximum dollars. For some, it is a huge deal to be paid the highest in the league at that position, for others, they will take less (which they recognize is still a lot) to play for a better team/city. The GOAT QB was never the highest paid QB, but he sure has a legacy he can ride forever (and make lots of $$$ from).

  14. I think they fully embraced the "sports entertainment" model when Goodell took over. Then recently they've stopped pretending like the league doesn't condone gambling, which was laughable anyway considering the backgrounds of half the original owners. It's always been about owning a pro sport where they can influence the action. Credit Goodell for showing them that you can act very serious and say words like "integrity" a bunch in press releases so you don't have to actually have any...

  15. He has Jessie Bates agent, which is a large part of why I think we are going to have trouble keeping him.

  16. And Marvin Jones wasn't exactly Tee Higgins. Speaking of Marvin Jones, who I had forgotten was still in the league, how did that work out for him? I am hoping things like Tee's connection to the team and community and also future chances for playoffs (and beyond?) will entice him to stay. The (financial) grass may be greener on the other side of the fence but that does not necessarily mean its better.

  17. Does Tee want to work with the best passer in the NFL in a situation that suits him? That's a tough situation to pass up. Marvin Jones wasn't exactly leaving Joe Burrow when he opted for free agency

  23. Here’s a nice blow-by-blow of the collapse. If this were scripted for Broadway, it couldn’t have turned out any more “dramatic”: https://www.nfl.com/_amp/saints-de-cameron-jordan-on-late-game-collapse-to-buccaneers-this-expletive-hurt Like I said, the NFL has been Broadway for a lot of years.

  28. Joe Shiesty still has the hops from his basketball days 🔥

  29. He’s short, for starters. A lot of his balls get batted down. Plus, he never really learned how to stay in the pocket and be patient and go through his reads. Yes, he won a Heisman, but his college game never translated well to the NFL. He also did go through a revolving door of OCs until Stefanski was hired so that also hampered his growth as a QB. I think the worst thing for him was trying to play through his injuries last year.

  33. Hell of a job by Tee to hang onto the ball, as that’s tough to do when you’re being tackled before the ball arrives.

  35. You're right, it's very incentive-heavy. Something like $100k per start. I should say that overpaying probably won't get us much improvement over him. The inconsistent effort is why he was available at a discount.

  36. That's the rub. Can we replace him without grossly overpaying another Collins/Cordy Glenn/etc type free agent that's really more of a side-grade? Doubtful. Can we replace him without giving up draft picks better spent addressing bigger needs elsewhere? Also doubtful.

  37. Seeing how hard it is to find left tackles and how low in the draft we will be picking, yes. Is he good? No. Is he serviceable? Yes

  38. They will probably have to do so. You want Tee Higgins through his second contract. Boyd will be at the end of his deal. Very nice slot receiver. Let someone else pay him as his game likely deteriorates during his third contract.

  39. What is done with Mixon isn't about what he has done in the past, it's what he's going to do next season and is it worth it. He has a lot of miles on him and isn't playing at nearly the level of the aforementioned players. It's reality. The past doesn't matter. He's been paid very well and knows what can happen in the NFL.

  40. I'd keep Higgins over Boyd.. Don't think that's a hard choice..
