You continue to seem optimistic on this Clapton. I hope you are right. I want two or three of these guys (Jackson is #1):

Rodney Hudson

Gabe Jackson

Larry Warford

Trai Turner

Rick Wagner

Rob Havenstein

 

One of these guys (Speed WR):

Curtis Samuel

Will Fuller

Chris Conley

Breshad Perriman

 

One of these guys (Pass Rush Specialist-All Unlikely):

Melvin Ingram

Haason Reddick

Justin Houston

Olivier Vernon

 

And these guys:

Samaje Perine

Quinton Spain

Kevin Huber

 

This should/would be doable by just cutting Bobby Hart giving them $27 million in cap space (fuck off with your rookie pool Hobson). Then, cut Geno Atkins after June 1st and use the cap space to extend Jessie Bates.

Im with ya on those moves..

I dont see any way they keep Hart.

Geno too..

Lots if cap for olinemen and a wideout..

Im optomistic about the upcoming days solidifying these spots...

I'd guess they're waiting to see if Sewell lands here before they cut Hart.  Because apparently those are the only options, for reasons.

It would be unlike the Bengals to be so cold blooded but Hudson is a much better center than Hopkins. Cutting Hopkins 6 mil salary would pay most of Hudson's cost.  

 

I'd like to sign Larry Warford and trade for a RT, preferring Ramczyk but Havenstein is ok.

Well the Cards gave the Raiders their 3rd round pick for Hudson so expect Jackson get the same..if they can trade a  4th rounder for him Im in..

 

 

 

Bengals are pretty stingy with draft picks, there are some shitty LB's they can draft with that 4th rounder

Our 5th pick in round 4 is now the 16th pick in that round with all the compensatory picks..

 

 

It's still the 6th pick in round 4. There are just a bunch of comp picks at the end of rounds 3 and later.

Hudson was just traded to the Cards, not cut as was expected. Another miss

Not really...im ok with Hopkins..

How about putting two guards next to him that can help him out rather than him helping them over and over..

Sure as hell wouldnt give  a high 3rd rounder for him..

As much as I'd like him here, I believe he wants to be in NY. Wondering if he's using the offer as leverage. 

 

The story (apparently) is that Golladay approached the Bengals, not the other way around. He apparently wants to play with Joe Burrow. Giants apparently offering multi-year so that's where the decision is.

 

Soft WR market, chance to play with Burrow and cash in next year when the cap increases or, play with Danny Dimes?

 

I'm good either way. It would almost be guaranteed as a one year rental but, that would be a hell of a rental. Take that need off the board for this season. Win, win as far as I am concerned. If it doesn't happen, I'm fine, never expected it any way.
