    I'm not sure we want to resign Reddick then, or at least you would be gambling on him improving. I don't want to do the guy down because I'm pleased for him but unless we are going to play rookie or backup tackles every week I don't think you can bank on consistent performance from him (yet).

    What was he in 2015 then? 200+?

    Sacks look great on the stat sheet but they aren't everything. Watt is consistently disrupting plays which is why his grade is still so high.

    at least they are measurable, as are TFLs, QB hits. when I watched him play (like twice) last year, he seems almost invisible, and when I look at his stats it seems to say the same thing.

    He won't go to Pittsburgh unless Roethlisberger is gone or takes less than half his salary cap hit for this season. Bank on it. Even then he might not be able to sign there, for cap issues.

    He can choose a franchise he prefer even with lower salary

    He was the most double teamed player in the league last year. Yes, even more than Aaron Donald. Health is the only (and biggest) concern for me.

    But, he wants to go to a contender and will be too pricey for AZ IMO.

    I'd rather pay Watt 4/15 than Reddick!

    Nobody wants to pay Reddick 15 mio a year. 10 okay but 15.

    Same goes for Watt, he isn't Aron Donald and he isn't making the line great alone. We need to spend whise and not flashy...

    Ha, nobody wants? Even at around 12 million per year, Reddick would be at barely top 30 in terms of annual average value for edge rushers. I'd still rather pay Watt.

    I love how you use possibly the best all time interior lineman as your comparison, not the crap we currently run out there.
