And we may have movement:
agreed.....super hard pass.
What is there to mesh besides egos and personalities?
one guy throws, one guy catches. The football side isn’t complicated. Practice works out those issues.
the behind the scenes stuff however IS complicated and that’s where I suspect the problems are, otherwise we probably wouldn’t be talking about one of the most talented WR’s in football moving to his 3rd team in 3 years.
No idea. I've seen the term "bad fit" thrown around a lot by sports media in regards to OBJ and Baker on the field. Idk if that means they just didn't have the right chemistry between the two of them, they didn't get enough practice time together, or maybe OBJ doesn't fit the scheme/style of the offense they've built around their presumed franchise QB in Baker .
I could definitely see those two butting heads though. Baker seems like an asshole and acts like he already has multiple MVPs and Super Bowl trophies. OBJ has his own reputation from his days in New York. Looking back on the trade, having a rookie coach that had a quick transition from position coach to OC to HC in about a year and having him try to keep that locker room together was a difficult task in its own right.
Translation: "I'm flat broke and no restaurants are hiring right now."
Translation: Rivera called Young and told him "We're drafting you".
Do this, ask for a pick to go along w Howard. Send said pick to Cleveland for OBJ.
so net net:
OBJ + OJH for TW
I would rather pursue that WR that got release from Jax, he's a UFA. We need draft picks.
Marquis Lee? He’s meh. I get that he’s free in terms of assets, but he’s not a needle mover. Why spend the money?
I could see OBJ back in the NFC East w a “I will prove them” chip on his shoulder. He’s got star power which this team could use a little extra of. And I think Rivera can harness him.
Higher reward than risk. I wouldn’t assume it would cost more than 3rd or 4th. Salary dump and bad fit in Cleve. He wouldn’t be the first player to struggle there and right size somewhere else.
just my 2 cents
that return would certainly put the kibosh on people who cried foul that we held onto Trent too long before trading him lol....
As he should. Don't overthink it. Take the elite talent, take your lumps this year during what will be a strange season, and go into next offseason with $100mm in cap space and a full compliment of high draft picks.
Imagine this actually happening. I need today to be Thursday.
echoing a report form yesterday
A first for Trent would be incredible.
OBJ played like crap last year and teams want to get rid of him. All you need to know about his off-the-field component right there.
That being said he’s got tremendous upside as a player - as he’s proven. I think you can have one headcase per team.
*voids if we’re talking Antonio Brown territory.
