There is a reason no team has ever been in trouble for doing it. Granted it doesn't happen often but even when it has nothing has come of it. You franchise a player, Get nowhere on the contract and a team comes up and makes a great offer you cant refuse. Simple as that.
Woot I hit 100. 1k here I come.
the player salary is guaranteed so he could play with the Packers for $10 mil and be a free agent next season. There is another version of the Franchise tag where the player is offered the average of the top 5 salaries at his position from the previous season and is allowed to negotiate with other teams. The Packers would get the chance to match the other teams offer or get 2 first round picks in compensation.
We most definitely need a pass rusher and its not even funny.. We count on Matthews to do it all and we've got guys like Walden starting.. Really? Walden? Stop it.. I think we should look for a playmaking FS, but not much need there.. O-line is where i'd look for, mainly the tackle positions.. i think we could go for a good player there.. Clady wont happen, but Albert would be great.

EDS seems like a stopgap to me still. I don't think he's ever much. I have faith Sherrod can hit. Possibly even Datko. People write off Datko but he was on the PS and everything, I think that's a mistake. Keep an eye on him there. He has a shot. At worst we have a borderline average LT. Probably more like borderline top 20 but yeah. It's not like he's complete horse ****.
I honestly think Lang had a bad year compared to the pervious year. So sucks may be a bit aggressive term to use but I think we have plenty of room to improve there. I do know he was supposedly responsible for the most sacks on the team at eleven. Which is especially alarming considering your best pass rushers come from the outside most of the time. Granted he had a poor support around him and he did play some RT. Please read through some of these stats and our LG didn't have great stats this year.
Does anyone think that it's time that TT starts signing veterans? You see it every year the Pats sign older veterans who often contribute as well as stabilizing leadership. In the last 5 years they have acquired: Wes Welker, Corey Dillon, Junior Seau, Randy Moss, Deion Branch, Brandon Lloyd, Trevor Scott, Steve Gregory, Aqib Talib amongst others. Why not get a few low risk high reward players?

I was going to run for President to Make America great agan but decided to Make the NBA Forum Great Again instead. Priorities.
Look at the Niners and Ravens. The Niners went out and signed two veteran free agents. One of them was a sourpuss and is no longer a part of their team and Moss has had a limited impact. I don't think the Ravens really signed anybody.
Still, adding A veteran I think would be a good idea. Jeff Saturday would have been a perfect example if he had worked out, and I think that's the type of guy we should look for. Somebody who wants to win and is therefore willing to come cheap. One guy I really want is Ed Reed, although I realize that's a pipe dream. Another guy that might not be such a pipe dream is Richard Seymour. He would solidify our line, free up our pass rush and help pretty much every problem our defense has.
