Ridley has breakout written all over him. ATL is #2 in vacated targets from last year.

I made a move for him in a dynasty league a couple weeks ago. Shipped Godwin for Ridley and a 2021 1st.

*whispers* I have Ridley ranked ahead of Godwin for 2020

I think trubisky wins the job but will have a VERY short leash
I think he has a even shot to win the job, but I don't think they feel he can do it, they passed on his 5th year option and they ate Foles contract $$$.

However, let please keep in mind Foles has a history of getting hurt, so Trubisky will get time starting.

- Titans have begun talking to Derek Henry's agent on a long term deal - signed his Franchise tag and will make $10 million + this year
- Bryce Callahan is set to be #2 Cb for Denver - signed a 3 year deal last year, but missed the season with a bent screw in his foot. Has had surgery and is good to go
- Broncos looking at using Melvin Gordon and Phillip Lindsey together in the back field
- Per HC Pete Carroll another team is looking at Kaepernick - they contacted him for back round info since they were the only team to bring him in and work him out since he has left the league
- More clarity on Henry Rugg's injury - he had stitches in his thigh after an injury while moving - he is expected to be ready for season
- Ravens have cut FA Lb Jake Ryan - he was signed prior to draft where they got Queen

Foles they have a 2 year commitment only and Jax ate most of the money. He is setup as a bridge contract only. The cap hits are 5M and 9M the next two years and then he can be cut. Trubisky has 9M this year and it was the right move to pass on the 5th year.

it really is a coin flip where they have 2 chances at a decent level QB. if Foles emerges then the bears are drafting QB next year. If MT steps up (and he still has youth and a higher ceiling on his side), then he would get a new deal offered but more in the Tannehill range, not huge.

Curious, any chance they are tanking to get the kid from Clemson at Qb next draft? Any rumors of such?
I am thinking that is Jax's plan with going with Minshew

set aside the QB situation for a moment, the defence had a lot of injuries last year and if healthy, they are back up to top 3 in the league again. The defence will get them to the 8 win level by itself. Adding Quinn opposite Mack could be a huge move that not many are talking about.

pace and Nagy also have their jobs on the line, especially pace. So no, not tanking, I see them trying to patch it together to try and save their jobs.

jax does look like they are playing for the #1 pick though

Actually several players from Dallas and Houston Texans have tested positive for the virus. Wonder if this will delay camps even more?

Some other key notes:
SF - has extended a new 6 year contract for HC Shannahan, this replaced the current 6 year deal he signed in 2017.
PIT - per James Conner - Roethliberger was "whisting" the ball on passes - so no residual effects on his elbow I hope
MIA - got first in-person look at Tua
BAL - had a scare as Lamar Jackson took on a jet ski last weekend - seems to be fine
