Sooner or later, you end up with a sore Peter!

Actually not a bad comparison , come to think of it ...except Davenport has cost more in terms of draft picks, pinky or no pinky .

I would extend him. For how long I'm not sure but not on a 4 yr.

Re: Marcus Davenport

Cut bait
Only plays 1/2 to 3/4 of games each year
When he's "healthy" rarely lives up to the hype
Cost 2 no.1 picks, dudes stealing money

Re: Marcus Davenport

Hmm.

I'd bring MD back for 2023. His sack totals aren't higher, but among other things, his pressure rate is on par with 2021.

The coverage and safety play were below average compared to a year ago. The former has gotten better in recent weeks, but losing Latt has hurt a lot, and I believe that's why the number of defensive line sacks has decreased.

It would be less expensive (see post #5) to bring him back for a year.

Kind of like how its less expensive to put a $250 downpayment on a $2000 tv than to buy a $400 tv in cash. Less expensive using Loomisí short term logic, more expensive in reality in the long term. Loomis will always put dead money at the end of deals but we canít just extend all our bad contracts forever.

Re: Marcus Davenport

I'd like to put the franchise tag on Marcus Davenport for 2023. Maybe he'll have a healthy year where he produces and finally lives up to his potential. Otherwise, we can let him walk and get the compensatory pick. I believe that that is where he gives us our most value. I really thought we were going to start playing the compensatory game now but it looks like we're just going to keep extending these guys and plunging into further cap hell.

'23 Franchise Tag for DE: $20,167,000 (second only behind QB)

You really think that's in our best interest?
