What if

Cousins signs in Cleveland

They draft Barkley #1

Who knows at 4

Cousins/Barkley/Landry/Gordon

Just saying


Landry really isn't anything special.

The other guys would be, other than Cousins, who has PLENTY to prove.


Disagree on Landry. While he isn't AB, he's only a step or so below. Easily a top 12 WR in the league. That's a pretty big deal for Cleveland. If Gordon balls out like he's capable of, that's a serious 1A and 1B punch. Taylor's scrambling will fit right in with Landry's abilities.

If Taylor starts more than a game or two, something will have gone very, very wrong.

Turned down a long-term deal paying him 50% more than the next highest paid RB. There's "business", and then there's greed....and then you have Bell's stupid sense of self worth.

Might be why fans have "turned" on him....along with potentially hurting the team by skipping all of preseason and needing 3-4 games to get up to speed.

The Browns are trading DT Danny Shelton to the Patriots for a conditional pick, league sources tell @AdamSchefter and me.


Patriots acquired DT Danny Shelton and a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Browns in exchange for the Patriots' third-round pick in 2019 http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/10339/danny-shelton
Wow, Wheelin and Dealin......

All that's known truth out of that is that he turned down a contract. "Stupid sense of self worth" is an interesting turn of phrase, by the way. If he's going to be playing on a 100% salary tag, skipping preseason activity is simply logical. "The fans" would do it, too, if their salary was at stake.

Once he signs the tag, it’s 100% guaranteed...right?

Pretty sure he waited until the last minute to sign it last season, and yes, it is guaranteed, but an injury in a meaningless game certainly hurts when looking for employment next season.

I'd be curious if stepping into a full speed game when you haven't played doesn't actually increase injury risk. And underperforming 3-4 weeks while you get up to game speed doesn't help your numbers and FA value.

Hines Ward in a contract year took out an insurance policy and came to camp. That's the right way to do things, and the SMART way.

And what happens should he get injured while training on his own...with no contract?
We know how the Steelers blow off pre season games for their front liners. Absolutely no reason for him not to sign and get to camp with his teammates...none!
