Re: Cam Jordan Sign Extension - 5 year 60 million

Don't know why they'd want to bring his cap number down now, get it done and off the books...

Short of a trade, don't see the need as there's no quality free agents of need left to sign...

Doesn't cap savings carry over to the next year?

Re: Cam Jordan Sign Extension - 5 year 60 million

I like the deal, also trust Loomis/Payton. And I don't look at Jordon anything at all like Grant, Smith or Gallette. Oranges and Apples. I was a little surprised at all of the criticism I heard today. Then I heard Mike Detillier talk about it, & felt a lot better. I think he knows his s$%#.

I really can't understand why you can say this after a total fail at last season. Management is totally responsible for putting together a winning team. 7-9 well thats not doing to well as braintrusts of a professional football team in which many predicted a Superbowl apperance. Bad drafts, wrong schemes, soft players thats surely not my fault. The lb.'er position has needed upgrading for years which alot of people here have been screaming this year in, year out. DId the braintrust? Finally. You criticize some posters here but not the management, thats pretty interesting when the posters on here can look at a glaring weakness the team has but management knows all. I'm one of those that are in that small group and will continue to be just because I know that if I can see what happens on the field other posters can also, at least the ones that don't have on rose colored glasses all the time.

Re: Cam Jordan Sign Extension - 5 year 60 million

Love SP and ML, but one word, Jason David. I feel I can offer some criticizing, but after looking at his stats maybe mine is a bit misplaced. 8, 12.5, 7.5 sacks.... 2 of those 3 years were absolutely horrid years for our defense too.

So appears I am just plain wrong about the guy

My guess is that it is cap friendly and that both sides are smiling
this year is not really a big deal. 2016 is the number i want to see the most. 2017 is turn the team on its head year. ton of top cap dollars will be free agents so it will be hard to figure that all out till the dust settles.

Re: Cam Jordan Sign Extension - 5 year 60 million

My philosophy is to keep the proven veterans on offense and keep the defense young, with maybe the exception being island corners or a Sam Mills type Mike Linebacker to keep a consistent identity on defense...

Just don't find most defensive linemen maintain a level after they hit ~ 27-28 years of age...

This is not directed at anyone in particular, just against this particular evolution of forum behavior that I've come across on various forums more frequently in recent times.
Yes it is getting more and more common across boards all over. I see the same. It comes from the greater amount of information available, coupled with the greater number of members believing this information, regardless whether the source was a "league source", an equally uninformed blogger or simply an unsupported statement by a forum member.

One thing I have learned from my years digging into all the information that I can is that it impossible to ever know the motivations of management and such. Sure, the members have every right to state what ever they wish, within preset guidelines, but with that comes the right of others to tell them that they don't know shyte.

Yes. Any unused portion of current cap is rolled over into the following year as additional cap.
