Yeah, I'm cool with this.  I think his weight problems were a bigger issue than some might like to admit.  I'm not convinced he was truly dedicated to the NFL. 
My guess is TT drafts a RB high.

He's proven to me by weighing in at 267 that he does not have the level of dedication to his profession that it takes to be successful

Plenty of FA options out there and a good draft class

267 lbs

No need to discuss further. I have no interest in re-signing a 267 lb Eddie Lacy. The free agent market and draft is flooded with RBs that are more committed to their craft than that.

Not to mention coming off of a shredded ankle.  Think it was wise to take a pass.

He'll fit in great in Seattle.  He's a lot like Lynch in the sense that he's a tackle breaking machine that is among the very best in the NFL in getting yards after contact. 


Yet another blow to our team in what has been an absolutely disastrous off season.

Lol. Disastrous? Really? Who have we lost that can't be capably replaced? TT is sitting on some money right now, we aren't done shopping either.

I think its an acceptable term to describe this off season given what we've gained and what we've lost.  Upgrading the TE position was nice but our offensive line, defensive front and secondary all took pretty major blows this off season.  Do we have replacements on the roster for Peppers, Hyde or Lang, I don't believe we do.  While JP was older. he was second on the team in sacks and pressures last year.  Hyde wasn't a star but he was our most consistent CB down the stretch.

Outside of upgrading the TE position (Bennett being a slight upgrade over Cook and Kendricks being a big upgrade over Rogers) , I don't see another resounding positive event that has occurred this off season.  yeah we extended Perry  but we extended him at the very top end of the market despite the lack of production over his career (he had 12.5 career sacks before this year) and MAJOR injury concerns (he's suffered debilitating injuries in every year of his career, never having played a full season).  Right now we're without 3 opening day starters on offense and 2 major contributors on defense.  Hopefully you are right and we aren't done this UFA period.

Teddy will find a RB to replace Lacy in the middle rounds  , deep draft class this year.

TT will low ball, and Schneider will swoop in and grab him, mark my words. For the record, I think he is worth keeping.

Seattle has 2 backs in Prosise and Rawls that offer more than Lacy.  Not to mention Alex Collins.  They have no need. 

Lacy at 2m would be a good deal for both parties.
TT didn't apparently low ball, but I was fairly confident Seattle would love his services.

Lets see...we signed the best TE on the market. That's pretty good. Calling Bennett a slight upgrade over Cook is ludicrous btw. Cook has been a journeyman TE his entire career, except for a several game stretch with GB. Bennett has been a very good TE for years. Has better hands, is a better blocker, is a better route runner, and is better after the catch.

We also signed a top notch backup TE. We haven't had one of those in a while. Huge for the offense.

We signed the top edge rusher on the market. We also got a pretty good deal for him. Was it as good as what we could have gotten had we extended him earlier? No, it is not. But still, this is a win.

We signed a CB who will be our #1, who has played here before and is familiar with our system, and a guy who only two years ago had an excellent year. While he is not as good as Hyde, he is more valuable due to the position he plays. If we can start House and Gunter, and move Randall to NB, we'll be better off than we were last year. That's called improvement, and that's a good thing.

We lost an overweight RB who can't stay healthy, although he is talented. I'm not too broke up over it.

We lost the top G on the market. I like Lang. I wish we could have kept Lang. Have to realize that G is one of the easier positions to replace, and it's simply not worth paying big money there unless a guy is young, healthy and elite. Lang is only one of those, and it's not sure how much longer he will be that.

We lost our 6th OL. Again, wish we could have kept Tretter, but we can't pay that much for a backup OL.

We lost a good DB. Wish we could have kept Hyde, but the Bills are paying him starting S money. Is he going to start at S for us? Certainly not. Can he play outside CB? Certainly not. So while good, you don't pay a NB as much as what the Bills are paying him to start. Hyde is good, but I would bet his value over replacement isn't going to be that high.

Disastrous off-season? Only if you're biased and don't want to admit that TT has done a pretty solid job so far.

I'm actually glad he's gone. Montgomery, Jackson and I believe Crocket is the only RB's we have left on the team. Christine Michael is not on the team. So I believe we will be draft heavy for RB in the draft unless we bring in a premier back in from FA and no not Peterson or Charles.

So Montgomery and Jackson is the only 2 RB's on our roster. We are in RB trouble lol. Wow!! Did TT clean house. How about Tim Hightower or bring back Dujuan Harris?

Well since it's a one year deal Eddie may actually stay in shape for another year. I do not fear losing him as we're not a run first team. Seattle is the best landing spot for him since they are a run first team.

We'll have to agree to disagree if you really think House is a #1 CB, that Nick Perry is an elite edge rusher and Cook is just a run of the mill journeyman TE.  Nick Perry had 12 career sacks before this last year and has never played a full year in the NFL.  Can Erik Walden now be considered an Elite player because he had 11 sacks in a contract year? Cook played as well as any TE down the stretch.  Him coming back healthy was the biggest reason our offense turned around the season.  Bennett isn't anymore athletic and IMO isn't going to provide much more as a receiver.

If you want to believe the offseason has been great, more power to you. 

With the loss of Peppers, Shields, Lacy, Jones, Hyde, Tretter and Lang we've got some substantial holes without players on our roster to fill them. Maybe one draft can fill all those holes AND fix the MAJOR issues we had on defense.
