  1. Cameron Brate 2018 Season Outlook

    Tampa didn't need Watt unless you move him to DE. They play a 4-3 and already have Lavonte David and Kwon Alexander.

    Howard was best player available for Tampa, he wasn't who they thought they'd get because he should have been gone before the 19th pick. If Howard was a bad pick who else should Tampa have chosen? Maybe T.White at CB or Bolles or Peppers perhaps, but I don't really see any other standouts because Tampa didn't need LBs. They did fine with Howard. 1 20 Denver Broncos Garett Bolles OT Utah Pac-12 1 21 Detroit Lions Jarrad Davis LB Florida SEC 1 22 Miami Dolphins Charles Harris DE Missouri SEC 1 23 New York Giants Evan Engram TE Ole Miss SEC 1 24 Oakland Raiders Gareon Conley CB Ohio State Big Ten 1 25 Cleveland Browns Jabrill Peppers SS Michigan Big Ten from Houston [R1 - 7] 1 26 Atlanta Falcons Takkarist McKinley DE UCLA Pac-12 from Seattle [R1 - 8] 1 27 Buffalo Bills Tre'Davious White CB LSU SEC from Kansas City [R1 - 9] 1 28 Dallas Cowboys Taco Charlton DE Michigan Big Ten 1 29 Cleveland Browns David Njoku TE Miami (FL) ACC from Green Bay [R1 - 10] 1 30 Pittsburgh Steelers T.

    Bucs haven't been in cap hell since Gruden left as far as I can recall. I'd be shocked if signing Brate to a mid range TE deal (6.8 per year) is the reason they get in cap hell. Also if they lost Brate, that opens up another need for the team. I know OJ is the new flashy toy and all but Brate is a solid player, and sometimes it's just that simple. Keep your solid players, especially when you have the cap room and you're not really overpaying him yearly.

    It's 6.8 million a year. That's not outrageous, that's not even top 12 TE money. Even with signing Brate they still have plenty of money to make improvements all over the team through FA and the draft. If you tender him as a 3rd rounder I wouldn't be shocked to see him signed to an offer sheet. Tampa values him way more than that, and they should as he's been productive. He also deepens their TE position, Howard did get hurt last year after all. Never hurts to have depth, especially depth that can start and plays a good amount already. But okay I guess they should just let a solid player, who's scored 14 TDs in the last 2 years go, because of cheapness when they have a ton of money in the first place.

    According to Pewter Report a bucs news site his contract makes him the 13th highest paid TE yearly. I don't think that's overpaying him all that much, if at all, and if you have as much money as Tampa who cares? If you have all that cap space that Tampa has it makes no sense to get stingy over 6.8 mil a year for a solid TE, who obviously has a rapport with Jameis and scored 14 TDs the last 2 years. Again, give your QB more weapons, not less.

    RB can be solved potentially in FA or the draft, but yes that is a major concern. I believe I read on a Tampa Fan site that all Brates money is guaranteed through the first 3 years and there's no dead cap after which would coincide with the 5th year option for Howard's rookie contract. So if that's true, I need to verify that, they could cut him after 3 years. So it's really just a 3 year deal and the team can control the remaining years depending on performance or cap concerns etc.
  7. Cameron Brate 2018 Season Outlook

    What baffles me is that people think this is a bad move. I mean why would a team bother trying to lock up a solid TE? Crazy talk right? With Brate, Tampa can then run a lot of 2 TE formations with OJ Howard and try to exploit matchups. Brate is also a major red zone threat, has 14 TDs in the past two seasons. Tampa also had top 5 in cap money coming in to free agency, not sure where they are now but I think it's a good move. You should be trying to give your QB more weapons, not less. Also typically Tampa front loads their contracts for players so it's not a cap burden later on, however I haven't actually seen the details of Brate's other than the years and overall amount. This sounds more like people who own OJ Howard in fantasy football being upset personally.

    I thought they opened around the NFL draft the past few years.
  9. David Johnson 2018 Season Outlook

    😂 Fair points.
  10. David Johnson 2018 Season Outlook

    So, 1 month ago I read in this forum that Odell shouldn't even be a top 12 pick, and now David Johnson shouldn't go in the 1st round or even 1st half of the 2nd round? This is why I take hiatus from this forum so often, its overreaction theater at it's finest. Odell and David Johnson shouldn't be 1st round picks??? 😂 I wish I had more hands so I could give that four thumbs down!
  11. No one has a 0% chance. Like you said there's much more to winning than hitting on a 1st rounder. The waivers, trades and start/sits play massive roles in that. Even the office moron can make a run to the playoffs if the cards fall right, as this game has some element of luck involved.

    Bradshaw admitted it on the Dan Patrick radio show.,89945 Although he said it was to speed up the healing process not to get bigger or faster. Whether that was the intention or not I question but regardless it's still using steroids.

    I never excused anyone of anything. So I don't see how that applies here.

    I'm not saying he's undoubtedly guilty of it legally because yeah there were no charges however I find it seriously unlikely the guy wasn't involved with PEDs after 2005. Coincidentally, after he was no longer employed by the Steelers he just happened to start a PED ring and he never had anything to do with that before? America: we'll put words in your mouth to fit our agenda.
