    I am not seeing any issue with the two statements.

    If Colts, Browns, Titans offered $23.5 or $24 million, then they offered more than the Cardinals.

    It's also not beyond reason that Gambo is a flaming boob of a reporter.

    That is not what he is saying. He is saying total they were offering was 24 million, whereas the Cards gave him 31, and that those teams were not going to guarantee all 24 million.

    Who cares?

    It's a reasonable contract for a player who was the most double teamed player in the NFL last year, but was still 15th in pass rush win rate.

    I heard this a couple of times already, but I thought that the most double teamed player was Donald?? It came up when TJ was complaining for not winning DPOY.

    I believe some of our discipline issues on defense last year stem from Chandler Jones being injured and Patrick Peterson being the most vocal.

    At some point an organization has to force the issue. This may work or it may not, but either way, I would rather go down swinging with a QB on a rookie contract than squandering the savings.

    They are recorded separately. Donald falls under DT stats. Watt under Edge.

    If you combined them then Donald is top for sure. Watt doubled on about 31% of plays.

    17 tackles for a loss are basically sacks

    this post makes it seem like there were going to be literally no other options than JJ Watt out there in FA despite you repeatedly saying it’s a great class for pass rushers. If this team was going to spend that big in a cap strapped year... forget it.

    I think it's more likely Reddick and PP21 are gone...Free up money to go after another WR in FA (Curtis Samuel or JuJu, who'd be an awesome #2) and draft heavy on CB, LB and OL and RB.

    Meh...Mike B flew to pick him up, so I'm sure he was in full agreement on this move.

    It's shouldn't be too confusing (other than possible injury issue)...Watt can play end, opposite CJ and he can also play inside, right next to CJ...Teams won't be able to double team both of them. It can create serious mismatches, similar to Aaron Donald and Leonard Floyd.
