    Maybe he'll offer her a bunch of money to have sex on camera. Too bad they aren't on the party boat.

    Am I going to hell if I take pleasure in watching Atlanta fan meltdowns on YT?

    There is no honor in taking joy in another's misery, regardless of the circumstance.

    There is honor if the reactions warranted laughter. And there was plenty of it.

    Well it seems like Washington is trying to get Romo. This is going to be a fun season DC. Even though I am a die-hard Raiders fan living out here in DC this is something that is going to be fun to listen to fans reaction.

    I don't see why the Redskins would pursue a 36 year old QB with an injury history to replace a 28 year old QB who's put up 2 decent seasons back to back. Unless I'm missing something from that.

    It baffles me also. It's my understanding that Snyder doesn't want to pay Cousins for a long term contract. Which is fine. I get that. If you are going to lock a QB in you want someone you really feel good about. No one wants the next Brock Osweiller. But if that's the case, don't pay Romo for the short term. Washington isn't like Denver where they are a quarterback away from contention. So what benefit is there to signing him? I see none.

    Ohyesohyesohyes. I hope Snyder pulls the trigger and starts a controversy between two iffy quarterbacks. That always ends well.

    Bengals are about to lose Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler. Their offensive line is now completely nonexistent.

    Dalton is frantically looking for a way to fake his death over the summer.

    Does that mean the Texans are getting Romo?

    It'd make sense. Supposedly being traded to either Houston or Denver. Of course, if there was a chance to get out from under Osweiler's contract (even if just one more year of guaranteed money), I'd take it... even with no backup plan.

    ...but holy ****, Cleveland.

    Hey Browns, I'll trade you your Babe Ruth rookie card for my entire 2003 Detroit Tigers team (119 loses).

    Easy. Browns had like $100+ million in cap space coming into free agency. There's no way they could spend that even if they gave out ridiculous contracts. So they basically take on a salary dump from the Texans, for the price of a few decent draft picks, and in addition it helps them eat up some of that free space.

    They now have a QB who they're not really on the hook to, because if he sucks they can just release him after this year and they owe him nothing.

    This is basically an NBA style deal. I mean they literally gave up nothing, and got a body at QB, resolution to a cap issue, AND two decent draft picks. it's not like the Browns were going to be good this year.

    @RapSheet
    From what I understand, the #Browns are weighing simply releasing Brock Osweiler after trading for him. NBA style


    Eric Galko ✔ @OptimumScouting
    Update on #Browns draft picks:
    2017 - 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 5, 5, 6
    2018 - 1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7

    11 picks EACH in next 2 drafts

    :eek:

    They basically ate the cost of Osweiler's contract in order to buy a 2nd round pick. Actually quite shrewd.
