TXL: Pimp Hand Strong
The only reason I'm starting this now is because Larry Fitzgerald re-signed with the Cardinals for 1 year.
This STILL trips me up.Larry Fitzgerald resigned...
Voice to Text gets confused sometimes.This STILL trips me up.
Not trying to be a grammar nanny but since re-sign and resign are pretty much exact opposites and since both are applicable to sports, I always have to re-read the statement to make sure I'm getting it right.
When I first read it I thought Fitzgerald was taking a 1 year break from the Cardinals.
They are so capped strapped - per one source - $18 million OVER cap - I can't see them doing this. I could be wrong, but don't think so.Eagles are expected to franchise tag Nick Foles and then attempt to trade him for 3rd round pick..
The Eagles are expected to pick up Foles' 2019 contract option for $20 million, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday on Super Bowl LIVE. Thereafter, Rapoport added, Foles would likely give Philadelphia $2 million to essentially "buy his freedom," Rapoport said, and become a free agent. From there, the Eagles would likely put a franchise tag on Foles and look to trade him after. Another possibility is that after Foles pays the $2 million buyout, Philly could let him go into free agency and gain a compensatory draft pick.
$18.5mil over, but that includes the $20mil for Foles I believe. They would get $18.8 back by letting him go or trading him.They are so capped strapped - per one source - $18 million OVER cap - I can't see them doing this. I could be wrong, but don't think so.
I agree. Regardless of the most recent stories published about CLE, teams don't make moves like this blindly. They may be misguided but not complete shots in the dark. I would guess that CLE sniffed around and may have heard how the investigation was going and what the suspected outcome may be. Not to say that can't change but they likely jumped now based on some info.I don't think so. He played in 11 games last year and then the Exempt list forced him to miss the rest of the season. Time served plus 6 weeks is my prediction.
