    if this was on letterhead or a pdf I would agree. I don’t think its that big of a deal in the twitter age.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    I assume that’s what they’ll do once the season begins.
    either way they’ll be screwed this year.
    Interesting how all this will play out. Long way to go.

    I actually wouldn’t be surprised to see someone give him an offer sheet after the draft. Not fully guaranteed but close to the one the ravens offered. Then the compensation will be 2024/2025 1st round picks.
    TBH, I don't think anyone gives up 2 firsts for him. ESPECIALLY if they have to give a Deshaun Watson-like contract on the back end of that.

    You may be right.

    I tend to think taking a year off in your prime is a net negative.

    But for a QB, who knows. I think the contract will be absolutely insane if he actually gets to UFA in his prime.

    I don't disagree - except he was trying to be formal.

    If they withdraw the tag, I think he becomes a UFA.

    But if he doesn't play under the tag, I think they still have his rights for the next year and can tag him for the same amount (i.e. it's not a 2nd tag).

    So there's lots of pressure for the player to sign in wk 10.

    But it would probably be really hard for the team to carry the cap hit of a QB tag without actually having the player play on the team (although they'd get that room back the next year).

    Will be an interesting game of chicken if there's no good trade offers (and I think that whoever said upthread that it's kind of late for a big trade with Lamar for this season is correct).

    Pretty sure Lamar can sit for a year and not assault women and get an offer in 2024.
    Worth noting that Watson didn't look that good after sitting for a year and half. If Lamar sits and Watson continues to look bad next season, it will probably hurt Lamar's market.

    But his market should still be kind of insane either way IMO.

    He already has an offer better than the GOAT ever had. He's a fool to not accept what the Ravens already offered. I'm sure he could even push that up a little. But he's playing the Le'Veon Bell game.

    Yup... if he plays a year under the tag, that means it takes a year longer for him to get to the prize. May as well sit out, stay healthy and get right to the longer term deal that he wants
