  1. Which sucks a little, because he had sand, as good a YAC guy as there is. And a little more, because Washington is some kind of football purgatory. Except that he got a nice payday. I wish him well.
  2. Most of the defense was in a permanently pissy state toward him because of the holes he put them in. The offense was a mixed bag. The skill guys were OK with him, the linemen not so much because his mistakes frequently made them look bad - specifically, taking sacks and hits whenever he tried to extend plays that shoulda been throwaways. That made their own efficiency numbers look bad, which doesn't help at contract time. Ryan Jensen in particular would badmouth him at any opportunity, though that might have had something to do with Winston regularly touching his nuts.
  3. Excerpted from the article: Why Winston, still, at three? Because Arians loved him as a worker and competitor, and he had hope that he could be saved, and he knew the locker room loved him. That last part is absolutely not true. The locker room was about 50-50 on Winston, and the southside 50 despised the guy.
  4. Thanks for the clarification. And I'd also like to thank President Trump for not calling this the 'pangolin virus'. The last thing we need to see is innocent, American-born pangolins being assaulted on our street corners.
  5. This may turn things a little political, but who the fuck eats a fucking pangolin.
  6. Lotsa talk about that out here, and not much consensus. Kyler Murray got 4000 yards last year with a pretty motley receiver crew - an inconsistent Christian Kirk, an aging Larry Fitzgerald who's a 2 now at best, maybe even a three, and very little beyond that. But Hopkins is a huge get and this definitely solidifies their draft strategy.
  7. Cards would have seen next to no savings in a DJ contract dump. Trade or keep were their only real options and they didn't want to keep. The Cards needed a receiver much more than they needed a broke down RB who apparently couldn't learn the system and didn't really seem interested. I'd say the Texans just got fleeced.
  8. Barrett is officially tagged. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/03/16/buccaneers-tagging-shaquil-barrett/ Is the transition tag still a thing? Would cost the Bucs $24.3M to use it on Winston - a really nasty cap hit on top of Barrett's deal. Sounds like dude is going to have to eat a W, I mean a shit sandwich of a contract somewhere, if he gets one at all.
  9. Are we talking about 'before' or 'after' - if you know what I mean.
  10. I'll stand by what I said. Everyone knows how Brady works his contracts. Newton, Manning. Rivers - all three contracts were written in 2015. Recent top-tier contracts - even for a guy like Kirk Cousins - are all north of $30M per annum. That's the bar. That's what Winston, his agent and the NFLPA will all consider fair. They'll be wrong, but that's what they'll want. And they'll want it for five years. With no outs. Franchise is in the $26-27M range. Only a little cheaper but a hell of a lot safer. There's also the transition tag option. No guarantees that Winston remains a Buc, but my feeling is that the Bucs don't want to guarantee him anything anyway.
  11. This makes a lot of sense to me. Fanof's suggestion of a 2-3 year deal for Winston at $20M per will never fly in today's market, not even with incentives and certainly not with outs. His agent wouldn't let him do it and the NFLPA wouldn't let him do it. Franchise or cut bait are the only viable options here, with franchise being the safer and more Buc-like path. Finally, it's a strong year for OTs, but I think D Dotson is the only guy sorely needing replacement. First round, go for an OT, but second round probably goes a different direction.
  12. Hard to argue with this. A bit of a tightrope from the front office perspective, but I think it's one I'd walk. That's the overarching question right there. I don't know if any of the posts about age-appropriateness of the surgery hold water in Winston's case, but that would be the only argument against the procedure that I can think of. As fanofdabucs notes, FDA approval occurs at age 18, but there seem to be some valid reasons - based on the individual - to postpone.
  13. From PFT - It might sound like a joke, but it’s not: Jameis Winston recently underwent eye surgery. As he was throwing his 30 interceptions in 2019, Winston drew questions about whether he could see. Winston squints as a result of being nearsighted since at least his Florida State days. “He can’t read the scoreboard but he can see the guys in front of him,” Bucs coach Bruce Arians said in the final press conference of 2019. “So he’s alright.” Still, Winston underwent LASIK surgery to repair his vision, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Who knows whether Winston’s eyesight played a part in his penchant for throwing balls to the other team? Maybe it was merely poor decision-making. But Winston recently posted a picture on Instagram of him wearing oversized, dark sunglasses. The procedure reshapes the cornea to enable light entering the eye to properly focus onto the retina for clearer vision. It is unknown if anyone associated with the team requested Winston have the surgery or he did it on his own. Winston led the NFL in passing yards with 5,109 and threw 33 touchdowns. http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2020/02/12/jameis-winston-undergoes-lasik-surgery-to-repair-vision/
