Plus although maybe they should give up on Manziel no team is going to draft a QB in the first round and admit they made a mistake after just one season. They'll give him at least one more season and maybe 2.
It wasn't even one season, it was less than 2 games. Has anyone been declared a bust with less playing time than Manziel?

It looks like the pick was bad, but at this point I think they have to see it out. Two wrongs don't make a right.

And like you said, what's the alternative? Mortgage the future for another rookie? Sign Sanchez? There's nothing out there this year.

The option of not adding him at all was better.

Although would be Browns style to trade away everything for Mariota, watch him bust, and then watch Manziel succeed on another team.

Cardinals cut veteran defensive end Darnell Dockett. He was injured all season and has been declining the past few seasons, doesn't surprise me.

Why does the NFLPA agree to this franchise tag. It's terrible for the players. They should do the restricted free angency like the NBA

Past 5 years Dez has more TDs than any other WR. The dude is a proven elite talent. So upset we couldn't tie him up.

We better before next year, the tag goes up 20% when you do it again, next year Dez would probably like to be franchised, would be like $16m.... All guaranteed.

I do...and I would have bet anything Dez wouldn't be tagged...to my credit I think it's a huge mistake, he SHOULD be signed long term.

They were saying on the radio this morning that there is still a decent chance that Dez will be signed long term before the season starts, so there is also that.


also IIRC the bulk of that debate was around Russell Wilson getting tagged.

Demaryius Thomas tagged too...what's happening here is that Calvin Johnson fcked it up for everyone. Calvin's contract is just enormous, and Dez and Thomas' agents are pushing for > THAT....teams are not willing to pay that huge amount.

Last year Graham was tagged and THEN signed a deal before the season started...that could happen to Dez as well.

Last year the biggest name to actually play tagged was Alex Mack.
