  1. Le'Veon Bell 2019 Outlook

    Not only is his weight a concern, but what about about his conditioning in general? If I were a Bell owner I’d be very concerned that he pulls a hammy right off the bat, or sustains some other kind of injury after being away from the game for so long and evidently not taking care of his body. I don’t know, I have a feeling some team is going to pay him a ton and get royally boned as Bell never again looks quite like the player we remember. A bit heavier, a step slower, less burst, nagging injuries, etc. Just a gut feeling.

    Fair enough, though I disagree. I think a few teams would take that plunge.
  4. Antonio Brown 2019 Outlook

    Agreed. This is just PR/posturing by Pittsburgh. Chances are Rosenhaus already has a mutually beneficial deal in place, and they likely discussed it at the Rooney meeting, which is why Rooney and AB both seemed satisfied post-meeting.
  5. Antonio Brown 2019 Outlook

    I don’t understand the bolded part. First, how do you know what kind of offer Pittsburgh considers “beneficial” to the the Steelers? And why do you believe them receiving such an offer is unlikely? Of course they’re not going to “give him away.” Is this breaking news to some?
  6. Antonio Brown 2019 Outlook

    No offense, but that’s actually a poor analogy, which might explain the disconnect between you and others. A cheating spouse has the option of ending the relationship. A scheme of some sort is unnecessary. If AB could’ve simply ended his contract with Pittsburgh and signed somewhere else I imagine he would have. Unfortunately for everyone involved, the only way of ending his relationship with the Steelers was forcing a trade by acting like a lunatic. Therefore, while his recent behavior has been unfortunate indeed, some owners will rationalize it by understanding that for whatever reason the relationship between AB and the Steelers reached a breaking point, and desperate measures were required to resolve situation. Whether or not these extreme measures can be overlooked, and whether or not AB can be trusted going forward will be up to each individual owner. I guess that depends on how desperate the owners are to win a Super Bowl.

    I believe Rosenhaus advised Brown to shoot his way out of town, which he did. That said, Rosenhaus doesn’t control AB’s every action.

    Why bother using random hypotheticals to make your point when an opposing random hypothetical would easily refute it?
  9. Antonio Brown 2019 Outlook

    I’m honestly not sure I understand your point. You seem to want to just keep repeating that AB is acting childish and you wouldn’t want him on your team. Ok, got it. But you don’t own an NFL team, so your view of the situation has little to do with that of an actual NFL owner trying to win Super Bowls. As far as putting words in my mouth claiming I’m “giving him a pass”, what does that even mean? I think he’s acting childish too, but who cares what I think, I don’t own an NFL team either. The only opinion that really matters at this point is that of other NFL teams/owners. It’s easy for us to say on a fantasy football forum that we wouldn’t want someone like that on our real life NFL team because we don’t own NFL teams and have no real dog in the fight. But while actual NFL teams may not approve of how he acted, they will consider why he acted like that, and that it could very much be to their benefit. Without a doubt, some NFL teams would overlook his behavior if it means winning, and potentially winning a Super Bowl.

    The point is that if it’s just an act to get out of Pittsburgh, then why would SF, for example, expect it to continue once he’s in their locker room, where he wants to be, playing for a contract he believes he deserves? SF, for example, might be glad AB acted like a lunatic to get out of Pittsburgh so that they can sign him. That may have been the only way. I’m not saying it’s a good look, but from SF’s point if view it may have been necessary.
  11. Antonio Brown 2019 Outlook

    To believe AB will not end up getting what he wants would require believing Rosenhaus doesn’t know what he’s doing. Personally, I believe Rosenhaus knows exactly what he’s doing, and what the results will be. I’m pretty sure Rosenhaus and AB aren’t sitting in a room somewhere saying, “Uh-oh, now what???”
  12. Antonio Brown 2019 Outlook

    It’s justifiable to ridicule AB for his words and actions, but the idea that he may not find a team willing to trade for him is ridiculous. The truth is that this whole bizarro AB act has been just that, an act, to force his way out of Pittsburgh. That’s not to say he isn’t a diva because he clearly is. But he’s intentionally gone overboard lately for a very obvious reason, and it worked like a charm. In all likelihood, Rosenhaus already has a deal in place with SF, but it required AB to shoot his way out of town first, which he did quite successfully. Next, SF picks up the phone and trades for AB who subsequently gets fed copious targets on the team of his choice and puts up monster stats, with guaranteed money, and everyone is happy. Well, maybe except for Pittsburgh.
  13. Odell Beckham Jr. 2019 Outlook

    True, Beckham to Buffalo, Oakland, Miami, or any other bad team would be...bad. I just don’t see that happening. I think those teams are well aware of what an unhappy Odell Beckham is like and would wisely choose not to pursue him in trade. The only situation that makes sense is Beckham to a legit competitor, with cap space, the need for a WR1, and strong team leadership. Cleveland offers all of those things. They have a great leader in Mayfield, plus the familiarity of Beckhams old teammate Jarvis Landry, and WR coach Adam Henry who coached both Beckham and Landry at LSU.
  14. Odell Beckham Jr. 2019 Outlook

    I think Beckham owners should be anytjing but scared. More than likely Beckham plays for a new team (Cleveland) in 2019, in the best situation of his career.
