    Would be the dumbest move imaginable.

    Highest draft pick for us in decades and we drop back to 12? Moronic. Better come with three first round picks and more.

    Lets also keep in mind that Tony Pauline is a ****ing moron and has almost no credibility.

    Mayfield is the most complete QB to come out in some time. If he was an inch or two taller he'd be #1.

    He does everything well and wins.

    Has to be three first round picks (two this year + next years) and more.

    Dropping to 12 would suck but with that type of return you have to say yes. You get a chance to address multiple needs.

    The problem is that multiple needs just = 8-8 for the foreseeable future. And then we need to trade a boatload of picks to move up and get a QB.

    You have to take the QB eventually. Makes no sense to not do it now with a young core in place.

    Grab one in 2nd round. Or with next year's 1st, yours or Bills one. There's a very good chance Bills will be bad again.

    That's silly since you're just going out on a limb that a late QB will develop. What good does a second round QB do next year when Eli is 38 and cut?

    I don't see how saying a prayer and hoping that Webb or some other midround QB develops is a good strategy.

    Plus, next year's crop is nowhere near this year's.

    It's just that I don't want to get stuck in QB hell when we don't have a high pick, have to mortgage the farm, and likely aren't in a crop of QBs that is as good as this one.

    Just seems like poor planning when we can get Eli's successor ready to go for when he's cut next year. I'd love to have Darnold learn behind Eli for this year.

    It's a smart move. His cap hit was going to be 16.5 - #1 amongst WRs. That money will be spent on Martin and rightfully so.

    Hilarious from the perspective of what Dez has been. So cocky, so full of himself, and now he finds himself cut.

    You know what's even funnier? On the way he was saying "see you guys twice a year". Apparently Giants/Eagles/Skins want no part of him. Ouch.

    Pretty awful if the Washington Team won't even take him. He's the type of signing that franchise loves to make.

    That contract was always dumb. He was never the best guy but was somehow paid like he was the best. Great move to cut his ass.

    I mean, the Giants really are in the perfect situation to draft and develop one of these QBs this year. The kid can learn from a dude who's a consummate professional, and he doesn't have to be thrown to the wolves this year. Even when he's ready to step in, he's walking onto the field with some of the best offensive weapons in the NFL. Dropping back to 12 just doesn't make sense to me at all...unless they have their sights on Lamar Jackson?

    Brandon Marshall cut after a failed physical. Would they now be more inclined to take a serious look at Dez?

    Jetsies open up in Detroit on MNF.
