What is Washington doing? Snyder makes Jerry Jones look stable.

Marshall to the Giants is barely a blip on the radar. He might be serviceable, but he's no longer a difference maker.

Rotoworld Saying Romo wil be released tomorrow. If he goes to Denver or Texas they get a big bump. Big fantasy implications if he goes to either as well.

Assuming no other major injuries, either team will be a legit AFC contender with Romo at the helm.

Got a shot for Favre/Vikes type season, complete with a massive bed sh itting in the playoffs.

I don't see Romo surviving behind that Denver line. He's going to get killed back there.

With Cousins leaving, I wonder if Redskins will make a play. Or if Romo would show loyalty to jerry and not sign within the division.

Romo might not want to go to Wash bcoz they're a train wreck - but I do not think loyalty would be an obstacle... He may love Jerry - but he's still really pissed about getting demoted. He'd love nothing more than to stick it to Stephen, Red and McClay.

I'm thinking the same thing. No other reason for Dallas to release Romo before June 1st other than letting him have more options. That may have been the arrangement

Bills keeping Tyrod. Shows you how bad the QB market is, but I don't think he's as bad as some people say. If glass Joe Watkins could stay on the field he might play better.

I think Marshall can be a tool they didnt have (a tall WR). But reality is he is a 33 year old WR. I really dont see that changing the offense dramatically. Bottom line is Eli has to play better.

Marshall is not just tall, he is physical. Had over 100 receptions in 2015. 2016 was a joke offense, I don't blame him as a jets fan.

Giants are getting a WR who can have a Boldin type longevity and impact once the speed is fully sapped.

He's an even better add for a team with no legit NFL tight end

Stuck in the process.....

My understanding is that they will release him tomorrow with a post June 1 designation.  You can do that with up to (I think) 2 players per year.  It is the only thing that makes sense from a cap standpoint.

I was hoping we'd keep him - but I understand the biz reasons behind it...... He is a great guy to have - and will fit in nicely in that already solid defensive unit.

I know you are a Jets homer so I back down. But I drafted him in fantasy saying I dont care that he is old Fitz is still going to force feed him to enough catches and TDs. So I watched some Jets this last year. Marshall cant get open.

Fitz may have played much worse but he is the same QB hr had in 2015. They had Forte. They shouldnt of been that awful. Marshall cannot get open, he relies on his size entirely at this point in my eyes.

Fitz force feeding an old WR who cant get open is a big reason they sucked so bad.

I do think he was banged up much of the year. But point standa what 33 year old WRs are real effective? Larry? Who is a better player, smarter, and they use him perfectly for what he can still do? Who else? Im having a hard time thinking of any that are threats at that age right now.

Fitzpatrick was NOTHING compared to how he played in 2015. He had his career season by far. When the Jets resigned him, I was all for it but I was realistically hoping for 80% of his 2015 production. He gave about 20%. 

 

Remember, most people thought Marshall would be average at best when he left Chicago and went to NY. 

 

The early injury to Decker allowed defenses to key in on Marshall. No one is saying Marshall is a guy who can do it by himself. Doesn't need to be. Didn't need to in 2015 and wont need to with the Giants.  Fitz did force feed Marshall a bit but that's the problem. He didn't have to. By doing so, defenses knew it was coming. Hence, Fitzpatrick turning back into a pumpkin.

 

The Jets also had injuries all over the offensive line and Forte was actually pretty much shot by mid season. Powell ran much more effectively. 

 

Fitzgerald is a good comparison but I still think a better comparison will be Boldin. Just a big, physical WR who will use his body and be effective until 36.

Bills free agent CB Stephon Gilmore expects to sign with New England barring any final snags, per sources.  

 

 

 

The expected price tag for free agent CB Stephon Gilmore for the #Patriots is slated to eclipse $14M per year, I’m told. Hefty but worth it

 

 

Butler can't be happy with this.

I feel Boldin was much more crafty than Marshall is and will be. Boldin can work the slot, break tackles, catch in traffic. When I watched the Jets last year they couldnt get Marshall open. And when he did he wasnt exactly sure handed.

Maybe Marshall will make the Giants real good on offense. I just dont see it nor think it matters if Eli and the oline plays like they did last year.

Gilmore hasnt been very good. He is a solid cover guy but was beat a lot last year by guys who shouldnt of beat him. He isnt willing to tackle. Maybe he regains the form of a few years ago. Last year he went in looking for a payday and he played bad. He still wanted top 5 CB money but just was not worth it eapecially in the new scheme the Bills will run.

Will probably turn out to be a steal and coached up with the Pats.
