Ravens' trade for Calais Campbell looks like an absolute steal

 

This wasn’t the trade many anticipated the Baltimore Ravens and the Jacksonville Jaguars would make, but it’s one that could go down as the biggest steal in Ravens history.

Baltimore acquired Jacksonville defensive end Calais Campbell on Sunday for a 2020 fifth-round pick they got from Minnesota for Kaare Vedvik, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported. Basically, the Ravens added a five-time Pro Bowl defender and one of the NFL’s most consistent pass-rushers for a draft pick they received for a backup kicker who lasted three weeks with the Vikings.

 

Looks like other teams in our division are trying to get better.

Austin Hooper says he's 'definitely leaning Cleveland'

Austin Hooper is close to a deal with the Cleveland Browns that will make him the NFL's highest-paid tight end, a source told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

Hooper told ESPN's Adam Schefter that he is "definitely leaning Cleveland."

"Unless something comes up unexpected, then no question Cleveland is the leader," Hooper told Schefter.

Fowler also reports that the Browns are the clear leader to land Hooper.

Hooper, 25, is coming off his best NFL season, with 75 catches for 787 yards and six touchdowns in 2019. He posted those numbers despite missing three games with an MCL sprain.

 

Through the first eight games,  Hooper was fifth in the league among all receivers with 52 catches, only behind Michael Thomas, DeAndre Hopkins, Cooper Kupp and Julian Edelman.

The Falcons saw the potential in Hooper when they drafted him in the third round in 2016 out of Stanford. He developed into a serious threat under the tutelage of former tight ends coach Wade Harman and thrived in former offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's system.

Through four seasons and 59 career games, Hooper has caught 214 passes for 2,244 yards with 16 touchdowns and 105 first downs on 274 targets. He had just one drop on 97 targets last season. Over the past three seasons, he leads all tight ends with a 77.3% catch percentage.

Load of crap that is

 

Indeed. I know why Hobson lies about the Bengals cap space, there's no reason for ESPN to do so as well.

 

After tagging Green and making some RFA tenders, the Bengals have 31 mil available. They can easily increase that by moving Dalton and some other cuts.

They shouldn't have made a RFA offer to Cethan Carter or Alex Redmond. Those guys aren't going to get multi-million dollar offers and if they somehow did get such an offer, they aren't hard to replace.

According to Bengals beat writer Ben Baby, the Bengals only have 3.8 million in wiggle room til they unload Dalton's 17 million. EL OH EL!

Need to realize Burrow's contract is gonna be 4 years $37mil or so guaranteed.   They can back load that somewhat so probably 7mil first year cap.  33rd pick adds another 1.6mil or so.  Gotta unload Dalton and cut some deadwood.

Well the question of "was it Brady or Belichick" is going to be answered.

According to Schefter, Brady was offered a 1 year deal for quite a bit less than last year.  Pretty obvious the Patriots are moving on.

The Patriots were just utilizing the low-ball approach perfected by the Bengals.  

 

You copy the best...and in this year’s draft, the Bengals are No. 1.
