Gutting this team is the right move to be honest. The “championship” caliber defense is two years and 6 players removed. And it sounds like Talib will be another player out this offseason. The offense... well, it hasn’t been a championship caliber offense since the year before we won SB 50. SB 50 was a miracle.

Sadly, this team needs to be gutted. And if I can see it, best believe Cousins and his agent see it as well.

And, would it not make sense for Elway and Co. to not see the same thing... thus keeping Joseph knowing that paying yet another coach isn’t going to help until they get some talent at several different positione?

I sort of agree. I think we can keep (need to keep) some top players - but we need to go all in on a top Qb pick and culture him with another vet on the OL as well as sign a cheap 2 year vet with the rookie starting late in his rookie season to transition to 2019. We will have good position as well in that draft which gives us 2 years to hit on another rusher to compliment 58 al la Ware situation. I would also trade. I personally don’t believe in Ray and would trade him while his value is highest which is now. We can find his production with Shaq and future pick/fa. Also need a vet at rb, cheaper option then Cj.

Edit - new coach in 19 as well.

Solder is very average in pass pro and that is with Tom Brady getting rid of the ball quickly. He is a good run blocker but i put him in the Okung class of tackles. Solid, dependable but not anywhere near the best tackles in the game. Do you want to pay 10m plus for that? I dont. The game last season Pats against the Chargers he was like a turnstile against Ingram and Bosa. The AFC west is not a good match up for Solder. I like Pugh, Hubbard or Austin Howard if he gets released by the Ravens as tackles who will cost half of Solder but who are close in ability.

Gutting this team is retarded. Why?

What exactly would that do to make us better. I do not understand why people say that. We lost good players so lets go ahead and get rid of more good players on our team.
Brilliant

Wouldnt mind getting one of their other tackles (Fleming or Waddle), who will be MUCH cheaper than Solder is gonna be.

I don't want him because he's the elite of the elite. I want him because he's a winner and a leader. We need to create a new culture on offense and getting a guy like Solder would be huge.

The quarterback, who is guaranteed $26.5 million in the new deal (per Rapoport), was scheduled to make $19 million in 2018. He'll instead make an average of $18 million per season from 2018 to 2020. Bortles can make a maximum of $66.5 million with all incentives and escalators included, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.

It's pretty much a 1 yr extension in reality, would guess the last year isnt guaranteed and has little dead money to it.

Beats overpaying Cousins and potentially losing key young players down the line.

Hell yes!! I’ll even take Will Hernandez is the second or trade up to the back end of the first. Soldier, Hernandez/Nelson, Paradis, Leary, and Bolles would be the best oline we had in years!!

Smart move, they don't have to go after Cousins, get Bortles locked up at an affordable rate and gives them to ability to focus on other areas of the team to improve.

Gives them cap space to add a couple value players in free agency, as well as tag Robinson.

Wouldnt be able to do that with Cousins on the books. Would also figure they cut Hurns if they keep Robinson and go with Robinson, Cole, Westbrook and maybe a draft pick at WR.

They'd have around 15 to 18 million with those moves.

Miami is going to makes some moves to get their cap in order and I wonder if we could see Ryan Tannehill released.

I saw he could restructure and there are the rumors Landry could be traded.

The Dolphins could restructure quarterback Ryan Tannehill’s contract and save $11.123 million in cap space this year. The restructure involves turning base salary into signing bonus, which would then be prorated over the final two years (2019 and 2020) of Tannehill’s contract.
