    The only way in which Lynn Swann is more accomplished is Super Bowls... lol

    Super Bowls and HOF. I’d say those are two mighty big accomplishments. But screw it, I guess we should try to sign jerry rice. He’s WAAAAY more accomplished than AJ Green.

    It is this for the entire roster for me. By themselves, all these moves are fine. As a collection along with the players we have on our roster is where I see the problem. That said, the concept of a veteran heavy roster with a young QB is not a bad one. However, the lack of draft success makes me believe the roster will be bare again sooner rather than later.

    Exactly we are like two years, or just one if all the old players suck or are injured, from rinse and repeat of this offseason. That’s a recipe for disaster.

    It’s tough to know for sure considering he couldn’t separate.

    I get the roster is aging and everyone is complaining. But what young guys were out there that were sure things to make this roster better?

    my answer would’ve been Bud Dupree but he’s coming off an injury and people in here thought Reddick was better.

    Strictly trying to play this with similarly priced moves we could have made vs. need/openings:
    WR - Will Fuller, JuJu Smith-Schuster
    CB - William Jackson III
    TE - Hunter Henry

    I dunno, just some examples. Skip the Watt signing, and we could have even more premium young players at those other positions.

    Juju signed for $8mil, Green’s max. He also returned to Pitts. I doubt he moves for the same money. Fuller’s top year was 880 yds and he got $10 mil. I believe Jackson got $26 mil guaranteed. Those aren’t similar prices.

    JuJu began free agency by saying he didn't want to return to the Steelers, so I don't know exactly what it would have taken, but same as Fuller, in terms of cost, that's not much more than the potential $8 million.

    I will give you a mea culpa on William Jackson - I meant to call out that move in lieu of signing Watt, but I didn't say it.

    This signing will add some drama to the games against the Rams this season!

    Exactly. The average age of the roster last year was 26.1. Bucs were 26.3. Chiefs 25.9.

    How many players hitting FA are less than 26.1 and would have made us younger? 1 in 10 maybe? Probably less.

    Hell, AJ Green over Larry makes us younger.

    It's laughable to compare us to either of those teams. The Bucs have one of the oldest players in the NFL skewing the average, alongside vet players he brought along for one last run alongside talented youth. The Cardinals have retreads we're hoping to have up years when we have like 3 young talented players.

    As for the Chiefs... one of the youngest cores in the league.

    Lol arguing against signing old players due to average age of a roster is completely meaningless.

    and if we signed AJ to just replace Fitz and not be our #2 and we still signed a #2 I’d think it was great. But that’s not what keim did.

    Well you could argue that Keims last winning teams were on the older side.

    I think this is what you have to do when you can't consistently hit on draft picks.
