    It's Deuce Wayne, what do you expect? He has posted so much BS on this forum in his time it's laughable. I'd take everything he says with a pinch of salt. I remember him really hating the Zach Brown pick...LOL

    The Colts franchise tagged their punter... classic.

    Sad to see Bowe re-sign, but at the same time, it could have been worse... he could've gone to Houston or Indy.

    We didn't have a legit shot at him anyways.

    Ok. Tell me who is....

    Here's his competition:

    Chris Johnson
    Kenny Britt

    That's it. Kenny is the best player we have IF healthy-- but he's never healthy.

    CJ is a joke and the opposite of what this team needs.

    So who?

    He doesn't want to be here....he doesn't have faith in the coaching staff or the front office. He was going to make it as hard on the FO as possible, be it franchise tag or long term deal. He and his agent found a way to get out of here. He simply wants to win....badly.

    And not tagging Cook is smart.

    No way in hell you can justify paying him $10M+ in one season. I would like us to try to re-sign him, but not if it's going to be more than $5 million a year (which it probably will be).

    He can be a beast somewhere else though.

    CJ2K is also better

    as is Nate Washington and probably Kenny Britt too.

    I'll take Martellus Bennett. Much better blocker than Cook anyway.

    But god help me if Craig Stevens, Taylor Thompson, and a mid-round rookie are our only tight ends come September.

    So basically- we have 2 threats on offense on average. (since one is usually hurt and the other is usually running backwards)

    And you want to take 1 away because you don't want to pay him what we pay Michael Griffin.



    Got ya.

    We could target Zach Ertz in the second round, he'd be an immediate starter in this league.
