    The Steelers have used the franchise tag on Dupree, and released Barron, Chickillo, and Holton.

    The Browns sign TE Austin Hooper 4 years $44 million, they will probably get rid of TE David Njoku.

    @SteelersFanIrl I can only assume they are worried about D-Hops health, seems he is always battling something. Still seems like a terrible trade to me.

    3.39 mil. For him retiring. 1.575 mil. in dead money we are hit with. We were over 3 mil. over so Ramon didn't even get us even with the dead money. There will have to be more cuts coming to sign dupree alone. :cool:

    San Fran reportedly out, Chargers Raiders and (most likely imo) Bucs probably the only viable destinations outside NE. I think he ends up back in NE personally

    The 49ers traded DL DeForest Buckner to the Colts for a first round pick, this is a surprise the 49ers DL was dominant last year.

    I heard rumors that Hopkins didn't get along with HC O'Brien, and maybe Hopkins wanted a new deal with 3 years left on his old contract.

    There will be some restructures coming in the next few days, possible extension for Heyward.

    I suppose that means there will be one less player in the 2020 QB Class?!

    Not to mention that, due to the CBA, the 30% rule no longer exists. Teams are freely to restructure however much they please!

    They are about to pay Armstead, they can’t pay everyone on that DL so getting a 1st for Buckner while they can makes sense.

    The Browns are doing some business today. They acquired Conklin and Hooper. Ben better be fully healthy if we hope to hold off the Stains next season.

    I think it is quite clear that the Texans had Johnson envy and now they have multiple Johnsons to please just about anyone. Outside of that I've got no frickin clue. Heck they could have had Hunt for a 2nd round pick and kept Hopkins, which brings me to my third point don't do drugs kids.

    They did business last year as well and with a wealth of picks and the meaningless winner of the off season award they got their head coach fired, their GM fired, their superstar DE suspended for the last half of the season, won 1 fewer games than the year before and hired quite possibly the most overrated OC in the league to be their head coach. My magic 8ball says outlook hazy ask again later.

    good news for those who want us to draft a RB in 2nd.

    AZ transition tag on Drake, and trade pick to Houston, more likely to draft Wr.

    Atl trade 2nd to ratburns,
