  1. Desmond Harrison needs some redeeming.
  2. I believe the county used an exemption for business negotiations when redacting lease terms. Once the lease is modified, the exemption will cease.
  3. Thompson was picked in the 5th round by the Cardinals. The others were undrafted. Simms is said to be signing with Jacksonville.
  4. Don't worry, Glenn/Hart is the best case. Glenn won't stay healthy for 16 games so we'll get to see Perkins or whomever at some point.
  5. It's worth mentioning that former Bengals QB Anthony Wright was shot this week by his girlfriend's ex. Radio is expected to recover.

    Pratt Signs (finally)

    I forget what it is but there is something that usually causes the mid 3rd rounders to sign late. For the early first rounders, it's offset language if cut during their rookie contract.
  7. What free agent is available that would make a difference now? Team should have been active when free agency opened.

    2019 Mandatory Mini-Camp

    More like coach speak for a broken leg. Richie Braham had a "bone bruise" that kept him out for months.
  9. Per Mike Brown, when you have a last place team, you must spend big to keep it together. So there's just no money to bring in better players.
  10. I don't think the team needs to choose between them. Boyd hasn't been paid yet and deserves the Sterling Shepard type contract he's asking for. AJ is in the 2nd half of his career and not really in line for a raise. As I showed in the other thread, keeping them both is easily doable. Ross was a top 10 pick, meaning his 5th year contract option costs the WR transition tag number. The team will have to make a decision on that after the 2019 season but at this point they wouldn't be exercising it.
  11. That doesn't change the fact the team has an extremely beneficial lease.
  12. Green and Boyd are free agents after the upcoming season. WJ3 deserves an extension but won't hit free agency until after 2020 since the team exercised their 5th year option. What I would do as the Bengals: Extend Boyd. A 4 year extension for 42 mil (slightly better than the Sterling Shepard contract) is fair. If he gets the same 10 mil signing bonus as Shepard, it raises his 2019 cap number by 2 mil. Team has 18 mil in cap space then. Extend Green. Something like a 4 year extension for 64 mil with 21 mil of the new money in signing bonus. That would keep him under contract for 5 seasons. The extension would effectively guarantee his current 12 mil salary so getting over 32 mil in guarantees is top level for a WR. His current cap number goes up 4.2 mil, leaving the team with 13.8 mil in space. After 2020, he would have 12 mil in un-amortized signing bonus but his salary would be in that range so it becomes a year to year deal. Green would have the 2nd highest WR cap number in the league in 2019, about a mil behind Mike Evans.
  13. It is possible. Getting out of the deal without much pain doesn't mean no dead money, it means the signing bonus acceleration if the player is cut is about equal to the annual earnings. In other words the cap hit is similar. That's not hard to arrange.
  14. Because he might recover from his injuries and go back to being an elite WR. A longer term deal gives the team optionality.
