Like the Redskins angle- LT and Peterson. Problem is they just moved up for Sweat as a bookend rusher opposite Kerrigan.

I think Perine is a sneaky target for Houston.

Agree that Stills could be cut? Contract structured in such a way that doing that this offseason or next is palpable.

If I recall correctly, Clowney still hasn't signed the tag. This could be a Bell situation, again.

Stills is an interesting case- think there are teams that could use him, like Pittsburgh and Baltimore.

I admit to liking V Smith as well. Picked him up in one of my WR crazy leagues last year.

Texans are actively trying to acquire a running back via trade.

Clowney says he wants the eagles or the seahawks, both teams have decnt backs, clowney for JHow and a pick or Chris Carson and a pick? That'd be a pretty gangster swap for either of their owners
I have heard nothing of the teams reciprocating that interest though, only the Dolphins have - Texans wanted Tunsil, they said no.
Ive heard the Eagles have interest.

Jordan Howard please. We haven’t even played a game and I’m tired of him stealing carries from miles.

Clowney reportedly refusing to go to Miami, and he has the leverage to block it by refusing to sign Franchise Tag and pulling a Le'veon Bell. Dolphins interest in him is long-term, but is killed if he is refusing to go there. A contender like Philly can trade for him and hope it's long-term, but be ok with it being a 1 year rental.

Had a feeling about this last week. Always cool when it comes true; since so many gut feelings don't.

Welp, what do I know, apparently; O'Brien thinks nearly 10 mil for this year is indeed worth it for a bet-hedge at WR. I guess that's why he gets paid the big bucks. :oops:

Whatever. I'm a D-Watson owner, so I can't complain about another good pass-catcher AND (much more importantly) a respectable blind-side protector.

Got this prediction right. Crockett probably fumbled one too many times in practice.

Nice boost here, Fins traded Tunsil and Stills to the Texans. Tunsil is going to be a huge piece of their future. Watson should be happy. Wasn’t cheap though two firsts and a 2nd. That’s some major draft capital.

Hella major. But one could argue that Tunsil is worth two 1sts, which Houston is probably hoping will be late 1sts.

A downfield threat gets a deep shotting QB and a strong blind side protector to give the QB time. Trying not get too stoked I have Stills in a WR heavy league.
