    He'll probably end up with his brothers in Pittsburgh just to make that franchise more annoying.

    It's really the reunion of Pollack and Brown. It's like mash potatoes and gravy. A lot of success in Dallas with those two. I have to wonder if Pollack pointed them in his direction.

    A great situation to happen would be to sign one of the top FA tackles. IMO, Moton or Daryl Williams would be a significant upgrade to that position group and would potential to lift that position up to the level of Andre Smith in his prime. That protects you at 5. Then if Sewell is there you can grab him (if all the hype checks out). Grabbing Sewell then gives the possibility of Williams at G. Or if you wanted to groom Sewell for a season at LG. But if Sewell isn't there or isn't your cup of tea you can entertain a top WR or trade down. At the end of the day if adding talent to the line is a priority for them then there will be plenty opportunity to add at least 2 new starting bodies IF they want to between the draft and/or FA. If we are sitting here at the end of April and looking at the same group as before. Then that tells you management is happy with their guys (we aren't). IMO, when it falls apart again that is something you can't lump on Zac or Pollack. I think we'll see some new faces on the line and hopefully they are type of faces that look like slam dunk upgrades on paper.

    Top 51 rule. From the start of a new league year the TOP 51 contracts must be under the Salary Cap. The TOP 51 is determined by cap hit alone not total value of the contract. Then at final roster cut down time the entire 53 has to be under the cap.

    That would work for sure. Very tempting if that would materialize. It gives them 7 top 150 picks. If they are having a good draft that fills some holes for sure. 12, 37,44, 69,106, 113, 145 Edit: They should have Tim Krumrie call pick 69.

    https://theathletic.com/2321179/2021/01/19/will-cincinnati-bengals-invest-in-offensive-line-inside-the-decision-of-the-offseason/ Summary: Speculation that Bobby Hart eventually gets cut. RT would be a FA target(possible big $$). Repeating the above Lap unlikely to be involved in big dollars for FA guard. Would like Spain back, maybe. Jordan potential and several 2nd FA guard targets. 2nd/3rd tier guard that would be awesome, IMO is Matt Feiler from Pitt. RTs prospects includes Daryl Williams and Taylor Moton.

    See what happens but you got big deals coming for Jackson and Lawson otherwise you have bigger holes to fill. Assuming they sign Lawson, Jackson. Bates is up after this year. With all that they need probably 10 starting upgrades. I would easily take a 2004 secondary plan they did under Lewis once Sapp spurned them. That landed them multiple starters on a division winner the next season.
  9. 2020 NFL Playoffs Thread

    Media is soooo tiresome. Every playoffs there seems to be some crusade they are on about a rule change. Since the lovable loser Browns fumble the ball through the end zone....THIS MUCH BE CHANGED! No. The offense doesn't need anymore coddling.

    Probably a network's dream IF Mahomes plays. The trend or the old saying defense wins championships is going to be challenged. 3 of 4 teams feature Head Coaches with offensive back grounds All 4 remaining teams have high profile WR talent. (It used to be viewed as not a necessity for top WR talent) All 4 teams have a top QB (3 of 4 first rounders, the 4th is an all time Draft Steal) It will be interesting to see the team's hiring Defensive back ground head coaches this offseason and how they do going forward.
  11. The Complete 2020-21 Offseason Plan v2

    There certainly are great FAs to be added right now with out cap cuts. We'll have to see if any get taken off the market via tags or extensions.
  12. The Complete 2020-21 Offseason Plan v2

    22 Offensive linemen have been drafted in Round 1 and 2 the past 2 drafts. That seems higher than normal. That factors favorably into 1 or more unexpected prospects being there at 37. Also there is a decent FA offensive line class. That will have teams investing in OL prior to the draft whether it be resign or new team. I think the chances of Sewell being at 5 are good. Both NY and Miami took round 1 tackles last year. They'll probably have a shot at drafting a lineman with a first round mock at 37. I think the chances are good the Bengals will have at least 2 new opening day starters on the offensive line from guys not on the roster at year end. If not, then either have had bad luck with injuries in TC or didn't make adding talent a priority.

    per James Rapienhttps://www.si.com/nfl/bengals/news/andre-carter-interview-bengals-defensive-lineFormer all-pro DE Andre Carter will interview for the DL coach job next week. The former 1st round draft pick by the 49ers, played for 12 seasons for 4 teams. In 2017, he worked with Lou as Asst DL coach. He moved with Adam Gase to the Jets where for the last 2 seasons he was DL coach"He helped the 2019 Jets become one of the most stout defenses against the run. Opponents averaged just 3.34 yards-per-carry and New York forced 117 runs for zero or negative yards, which was the most in the NFL."

    Maurkice Pouncey C Steelers is supposedly retiring AND Anthony Castonzo T Indy is retiring. So those were potential cap casualties/re signs.
  16. Coaching changes on staff

    You can't just look at Center's Pass Pro grade without taking into account the number of snaps he protected 1 v 1. Since 2018 more defenses seem to be playing NTs over the Center in pass rush situations. A lot of Price's pass pro snaps could have been in help situations. Tough to determine anything by it. He was worse or as bad as Bodine in 2018.

    Ju Ju catching a ton of heat after trash talking the Browns prior to the game. Definitely going down the path of distraction.

    No it wasn’t. They were ranked in the 20s all season. Dalton saved them so many sacks throwing it away. Glenn was a bust as well as Price. Hart had his worse season. Cordy Glenn and Billy Price were supposed to come in and fix the Bengals' reeling offensive line this season, but both came in and fell victim to what might be a cursed unit. Glenn had the lowest-graded season of his career at 60.9 overall, and he gave up a career-high 36 pressures. Price didn’t fare any better with a 49.4 overall grade in a season marred with injury. 27th final 2018 ranking
  23. Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

    Step 1 is complete- hiring a guy with some NFL credentials. However the 2018 line with him as coach was bad. The Jets lines have been bad. A great hire, but not a miracle worker. Need to upgrade the talent.

    27. NEW YORK JETS (PFF Pre Season) The Jets have thrown plenty of resources at the offensive line this offseason, but question marks still abound. They finished just 28th in our 2019 rankings, and they will have at least three new starters in 2020. First-round pick Mekhi Becton, a mauling run blocker who has some work to do in pass protection, is the likely starter at left tackle. Becton’s college film is rare, as the 6-foot-7, 360-pounder tossed college players around like high schoolers, but his mediocre 64.7 pass-blocking grade on true pass sets is a concern. At right tackle, it’ll be a batter between free agent signing George Fant and second-year player Chuma Edoga. Fant has been a developmental project for the Seahawks, and his best work has come when playing as a sixth offensive lineman at tight end. Fant has an overall grade of just 47.6 when playing tackle, 86th out of 89 qualifiers dating back to 2016, so he remains a project. Edoga, on the other hand, was drafted in the third round back in 2019 and has potential as a pass-blocker after a strong career at USC. However, his first 421 NFL snaps did not go well, evidenced by his 48.9 overall grade and the six penalties called against him. Both starting guards return in Alex Lewis andBrian Winters, but there’s plenty of competition on the inside — Lewis has yet to grade above 60.2 in three years of significant playing time, while Winters has graded above 70.0 just once in his career (2016). Greg Van Roten comes in from Carolina, where he had a career year in 2019, finishing with a 65.6 overall grade that finished 24thamong guards. Van Roten first entered the league in 2012 and has taken a roundabout path to becoming a starter, but he’s been solid over the last two years. Center has been a huge problem spot for the team, so the Jets signed another player coming off a career year in Connor McGovern,whose 72.0 overall grade tied for ninth among centers during the 2019 regular season. However, McGovern posted a 48.9 grade in 2017 and a 58.8 mark in 2018, so New York will be hoping they got the 2019 version in free agency.

    29. NEW YORK JETS (Final PFF ranking) The Jets, like the Dolphins, threw a lot of resources at the offensive line this offseason. That included a first-round pick spent on Louisville tackle Mekhi Becton, who impressed in his rookie season. His 74.3 PFF grade ranked 19th out of 38 qualifying left tackles despite battling injuries, and he showcased that his rare blend of size and athleticism could cause serious problems for defenders. Overall, however, it was a disappointing season for the offensive line in New York. They allowed pressure in 2.5 seconds or less on 28% of their dropbacks — the worst rate in the NFL. The line wasn’t creating many lanes in the run game, either. The Jets averaged just 1.1 yards per carry before contact per rushing attempt in 2020 (30th). Once again, they’ll have to look to add pieces to their offensive line this offseason.
