Kirk Cousins announced the number 1 team on his wish list is the Vikings.
I would not want to be the GM/Owner given the honor of making Cousins the new highest paid player in the NFL.

I doubt that's the kind of news Keenum wants to hear either..

Philly would be wise to strike while the iron and trade Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles.

Nick Foles age 29 (4 yrs 8 m younger than Alex Smith)
6-6 243 lbs drafted round 3 2012 one year left on contract with 2018 salary of 7.6 million
career passer rating 89.5
Strong upside, proven under pressure with at least 5 more years in him

Carson Wentz (25) is their future and having Foles as a back up might be a distraction in 2018 and too expensive in 2019

I'm sure there are several qb needy teams that would give up a 1st round 2018 pick and 2nd round pick in 2019 for him

Arizona? Buffalo? Denver? Jets?

Kansas City did not make out big.
Chiefs received a 3rd round pick this year and a nice young cb Kendall Fuller (whom they missed out on in 2016)
when they blew it by choosing cb KeiVarae Russell in the 3rd round over cb Kendall Fuller.
They did save $17 million in payroll by getting rid of Smith.

Andy Reid is overrated. 1-4 in 5 post season games with Smith is more Reid's fault than Smith's.
We'll see how it works out, but I thought K.C. gave up too much (two 1st round picks and a 3rd) to move up to
draft QB Pat Mahomes who I expect will be no better than Smith.

In my opinion using those 3 draft picks to build a better team to help Smith would have been smarter than using them
to replace Smith.
:2cents:


KC made out great in this trade. They cleared the cap space and picked up a CB that was one of the top rated slot corners in the league last year. Like all young QB's Mahomes is a gamble and will make mistakes but vs Denver he showed he can make passes that Smith could only dream of.
KC basically gave up this years 1st round pick for Mahomes. They flipped first rounders last year and then got a 3rd in the Smith trade.

I do agree that Reid is overrated and always fails in the playoffs.

Last night's preseason games looked interesting....for what they were.
Webb looked 'inconsistently sharp' for Houston, which has been a Houston QB trademark for years now.......he'll fit right in, if he doesn't take off down the field in a real game and some defensive linebacker take his head clean off.
