"Give on how to deal with the media in order to get them on your side? As opposed to against you. Well, the one the number one thing I think is to realize. That the most important thing when you're in the high level job in Washington, D C. Dealing with the media, the most important thing is to let them know you're willing to engage with him. You're willing to talk to him. I would not maybe argue with courting the media assiduously that type that phrase, but I never I made it a point never to go home at night without returning. Every call. I got that day as Q for staff now from a Congress person or or press person Now, that was in the days before tax paying, so I could return the call after hours. No, that they wouldn't be there to answer it. But I'm yet credit for turning the call. But what the press want They want you to be willing you want They want transparency. They want you to be willing to talk to him and they want to be and they want to have accent. Uh, when you're in those powerful jobs up there, and so so I paid his attention to and it was the right thing to do. And in in terms of backgrounding the press some people call that leaking. It's Natalie. Meetings. When you talk to the press to push your own interest, as opposed to interested administration, your job is why not, she says staff is to make sure that you spend the president the administration's position. To as many press people as you can. That's not leaking has background in the press. It was very important. James Baker on his career served as secretary of state for two presidents, wounding conversation by attorney and historian Talmadge Boston Well, again focusing on our our audience here. These law school professors who are in front of law, students in law school deans and so forth who were in front of law students all the time. Uh, Secretary Baker. Pretend like you're in front of a big class of law students. Of course you were law student many years ago at the University of Texas, and, uh, obviously, that training served you well in your legal career for today's law students. Well, is there anything besides what you said already that you think really needs to be Driven home that that from your experience, you realize now how incredibly important it is to get while you're young. Before you kind of get out into the professional world. No, I can't think of anything other than, uh, what we've talked about here today. Uh, I'm a big believer in prior preparation prevents poor performance. That's my fault. My grandfather's Mansour and my father, and it sure served me. Well. I never winged it. Comedy. I would never go, You know, you know, there's a passage in the book that that talks about when I was going to be on the Sunday shows when I was chief of staff for Reagan. And I would require the staff to come in and briefed me sometimes for two hours and Larry speech. The press secretary is recorded in there, saying these these were I would rather be out playing little League ball with my son and in trying to brief maker for two hours for meet the press appearance, But prior preparation is really, really important. Particularly important, I think in practicing law all I know it's important in trying to trying to serve in Washington in either politics or public service. And another thing I would say is that You know, we we I tell people I was fortunate enough to be secretary of State of the United States at a time when we were omnipotent there almost feminine with a unit Polar world. Wonderful time to be. Everybody wanted to get close to Uncle whiskers. And I went all over the world 91 countries during that four years, and everybody admired the United States. Everybody wanted to come to the United States. Nobody wanted to leave the United States. Guess what with all of our troubles today. Everybody admires United States. Some people resent us, but they either admiring still resents they they all want to come here. Everybody wants to come here and nobody wants to leave. So I get very tired of listening to people run down this country and talk about all of our problems. Yeah, We got some problems, but we've had big problems in the past and I'm old enough trouble. It's through some of them and seeing them fixed and we can fix any problem because we are the finest best country in the world. Part of the patriotic speech, James Becker, What Secretary of state under two Presidents President George H. W. Bush and Ronald Reagan. We love the patriotic speech that such is such a magical opportunity to to hear. You say that, Uh, getting on this back to the proper preparation prevents poor performance. Uh, an important part of your rise in Washington, D C was when Ronald Reagan asked you to prepare you For the presidential debates. And it was that your extraordinary preparation that caught Nancy Reagan's attention. And so here we are. In this election year we've had presidential debate and vice presidential debate. Is there anything that stands out in your memory about that? Preparation for debating, maybe, you know, tied into preparation for a big legal meeting or case, But of course, Reagan is such an iconic figure. And there you are getting him to where he can surge past combat. Carter, Uh you know, there were a lot of long time. Reagan. Uh, People who had worked for him who were a little reluctant for him to debate But I I had been and there were summoned joined me I was I was starting the deputy chairman of the Reagan campaign in charge of debates because They? They asked me to come over after George Bush left the race. And I've never seen I've never seen Reagan lose a debate, so I argued strongly for him to debate John Anderson car. Anderson was another Republican running for president and Carter didn't want Europe didn't want a debate to Republicans. And so I said, Well, we ought to go to Vada Anderson..

"To scheme pressure and scheming pressure of just put too much pressure on their secondary on the other hand. You're absolutely right. They need to protect Daniel Jones. They need to keep pass rushers off of him. Not only. Is it just hard for quarterbacks to perform under pressure it? It reduces the effectiveness of all. I don't care who it is and then also the turnovers. Those really put the giants defense in a lot of bad positions. It's very difficult for a defense. If they're constantly having to defend extra snaps on the for the opposing offense because the giants offense coughed up the ball. And it's hard. It's hard on them. If all of a sudden they're back on the field on short rest and the opposing offense has great field position overall an offensive lineman would help both sides of the ball of course helping the pass rush out would help the offense by potentially giving them better field position getting opposing offenses off the field. And maybe maybe making it so. The giants aren't constantly playing from behind constantly having to scored a try to keep up with the opposing offense. So I would say the. They're both glaring concerns. They both have to be addressed but gun to my head. You have to pick one. I would go with offensive. Line offense of tackle. It's honestly a great question and I think it. It really is a good exercise to kind of analyze. What would you pick? But there is no right or wrong. Because both things are very very necessary for the giants. Fiqh fix this off season. It just so happens that there's plenty of options for them to do both if they're smart and diligent and approach correctly. We'll have to see if they do end up doing that. And we also have three more great questions that we're going to be answering very shortly but we're gonNA take a short commercial break. Our next question is from. Brian Hammond in his question. Is What is the best case? Scenario if Dave gettleman chooses to trade now trade down rather I think from looking at the available teams that need a quarterback in that have the most draft capital in this year's first round the best case scenario. Is that if you can convince the Miami Dolphins to give up one of their first round picks to swap spots with you and then also potentially a second rounders additional draft capital in later rounds that would be an absolute steel just to swap one spot to get a first rounder and additional later round picks would be the best case scenario. You don't have to do a ton of work. You're not sacrificing really any draft position because once you swap picks. They're taking a quarterback so that leaves every other position on your draft board currently still available. The giants aren't don't need a quarterback right now and they're not going to draft. What in this year's draft so let the dolphins traded up take their pick draft. Someone really talented in that fifth spot. That would have been your pick four and then you have a mid round. Pick to take and fill another need whether it's filling it and getting an offensive tackle or drafting a linebacker or one of the many talented receivers. Getting getting additional. First round picks would be a huge deal. Yeah absolutely getting one of the dolphins extra first rounders is definitely the best case scenario even if the giants can just moved back one spot and pick up a another second round and maybe a third round draft pick the two day two picks justice swap picks for the dolphins and make sure let them make sure they can secure the guy they want. That would be a really good scenario for the giants because they would effectively be giving up nothing and they would be getting the same guy they would have been drafting anyway but at a little bit lower salary slot and there will be picking up additional picks that frankly they need they need those day to picks so they can get those guys on affordable contracts but still be good enough prospects that the giants could reasonably expect them to step in and contribute right away. Now if the giants wouldn't be able to work that there are some other really good scenarios that I think we're going to be getting to in a question or two. Our next question is from Richard Michael and his question is it a stretch taking Mekki Becton with the fourth overall pick. I think now is a little bit too early to really make a decision on that because there are some questions about a lot of these tackles and there are questions about Mekki Becton because he is honestly a bit boomer bust because he's so big. He has a lot of extra weight on him. See Y Y you don't know one hundred percent for sure what you're getting but what I do know is that he is very strong. He's very very big. He could lean down a little bit but he doesn't look like he's some gelatinous blob. That's over three hundred and fifty pounds. He carries his weight well. He's athletic. He's got good footwork. I think if he has a good combine performance enhancers some of the questions that we addressed on the Thursday show. He could very well find himself in the top ten. Not sure about the fourth pick but he could find himself in the top ten. Yeah that's pretty much it exactly. If he has the combine we hope he does. The top ten is not a stretch and if he really does look as good as we hope he does if he shows up at a good way if he moves well if he's shows good knee bend and maybe some of the other guys. Don't look quite as good as we hope as we think they will or hope they do then I would say it wouldn't be a stretch for Becton to potentially be the ot one but right now it's probably just a little bit too early but this will be really conversation. I think we'll be revisiting in. Oh two and a half three weeks. Final question we have on the mailbox show is from Edwin Gomer. 's HIS QUESTION. Little bit long here looking at the over looking at over the CAP. It is a website that tracks salary caps for all the NFL teams at teams with very little or negative cap space. Which team will you try to swing a with preferably mid late pick in for whom as they may need salary dump so we won't get too crazy in who might be able to swing with because that's getting a little bit tricky because we don't know who's untouchable we don't even know who they're willing to trade but addressing the conversation of who is very close to the edge and violently over the salary cap right now? The Vikings are eleven million dollars over. They have to do something. They are very much in a situation where they have to move some players to clear up some caps base which they're probably going to be doing in free agency. Do they try to do they choose to move on from some defensive players? Maybe somebody like Lindvall Joseph who is getting paid around ten million dollars. Maybe that's someone that they are. Starting twelve million rather. Maybe that's someone that they tried to get rid of to clear up some space The the Jaguars to maybe you can swing a trade for someone like collapse Campbell. Because they're trying to clear out some room guy. That's a veteran coming towards the end of his career. Can they really pay him? And would they rather pay him or Nick Foles? That's a question that needs to be addressed. The Pittsburgh steelers have a ton of issues with their cap space as well. They're only one million dollars under the CAP. Can THEY AFFORD TO RE-SIGNED Boudou pre? That's a big question for them. And then the Falcons who are very likely not going to be retaining VIC Beasley well. That's an interesting situation to look at. Because they're four million dollars under the CAP right now if they get rid of him that somebody that the giants could address and go after as not a premier a featured. Pass rusher in this defense. I think actually delays Campbell is a very interesting possible target for the giants because he is expensive right now for the Jaguars. He is a seventeen and a half million dollar cap but he'll only two and a half million dollars in dead cap so it seems really likely that defer fifteen million dollars in cap room. They'll cut him and just to circle back around to the Leonard Williams Question. I would absolutely rather Pay Delays Campbell than Leonard Williams. Again still not fifteen million dollars or twelve million dollars but if you're asking me for this year and next year who would I rather have on the roster? It would probably be collapse Campbell? He is the one who has the track record of being an impact player. You know maybe it would have been a little bit more interesting with the James Becker. Still there is a guy that he knows. But we have seen Campbell B. Six Successful elsewhere other than just the Arizona cardinals if we're talking possibly a trade scenario with the Jaguars could maybe work one or both of their first round picks into that if they are looking to move on dump salary and potentially go up and get a quarterback because you know as you said right now there they could look to try to move on from Nick. Foles who was just a bust of assigning and then government's view who was definitely exciting but part of the excitement of the fact that he was a sixth round. Pick so if they're not looking at him as a long-term answer at quarterback right now they're sitting at ninth overall. They have another pick later on. Perhaps the giants could swap the fourth for the ninth and their second pick and maybe take a player to clear cap space with some other compensation to smooth things out. That is really interesting scenario. You do bring up an interesting situation of maybe the giants decide to help out the Jacksonville. Jaguars in getting rid of Nick. Foles is contract because right now the giants have sixty one million cap room. If after making some free agency moves. They have the space to eat up. Someone's contract take someone and then cut them kind of similar to what happened with Brock. Osweiler when he was with the Texans and they realized that well. This contract is not working out for us. He's not playing up to the level we had hoped. We're GONNA take this Shawn Watson. You get a situation like that where you're trying. Get somebody to eat up his CAP. You can finagle. Some picks that way maybe get a third round. Pick something in the middle rounds. Some additional draft capital just by doing them a simple favor. Teams are not afraid to do that. I would not be opposed to doing something like that if they have the CAP room after free agency after. They've signed some reputable names. You just do them a favor and you get some draft. Picks the other thing too that maybe something you wouldn't expect as the chiefs right now are around thirteen million dollars under the cap and they have a very tricky situation of having to pay Chris Jones and then eventually going to be on the most enormous if not the actually it is going to be the biggest contract in the NFL of paying. Patrick Mahomes the best quarterback in the NFL right now and the arguably one of the best players in the NFL right now..

"Welcome to the buccaneers observer podcast Ralph Phillips, I'm Ali vais. Today's March fourteenth two thousand nineteen seven thirty six PM eastern standard time it's pie. Yes. Right. Three or fourteen three point one four something something something infinite numbers, we should've timed it. Just right. So it could be more specific yet horrible. At this free agency is upon us and deals big stuff going on. I I wanna get some stuff out of the way got some fact checks as a follow up style last podcast. We had gone a perfect one hundred percent, correct. The pent up podcast for that last podcast. We had a few mess ups. So I is the fact check on that quote. I had said someone bow jumbo about. If you're Dom don't open your mouth you sound. Actual quote is better to remain silent. And be thought a fool that to speak and remove all doubt. Okay apropos. Well. Yeah. I definitely opened my mouth removed. All doubt fact, check I had said that Kwan Alexander had only had Mike Smith is defensive coordinator. That was not true. He was drafted by lovey and head Leslie Frazier as a defensive coordinator in two thousand fifteen amnesia. Yeah. That's we blocked that one out memory a block anything had to do with loving. No. The fact check. Molly was correct that the signing bonus does count towards the cap the signing bonus can be pro rated over a number of years to spread out the cap hit. But the signing bonus is guaranteed. They get that money. No matter what I only had to check that. Because I thought I was right. And then it turns out I was almost we're gonna write it down. She was like you better put that down factor. Well, I got one two I had said that all teams with a lot of cap space suck this year. And I was correct of the top ten teams with a lot of caps Bay's only the tight faith-based Texans. Not the titans only the Texans who had the fourth most cap space fifty nine million went to the playoffs. And they didn't even get that far that they sure. Yes. So the top nine teams with a lot of cats base cap spaces this year did not go to the play fact check I had said keenum Allen was at Jacksonville before the chargers when I was quizzing Molly on the name five charger players. And that was incorrect. Allen was the same DA go chargers before the charter. He was at the chargers. Yeah. So they just resigned him. Okay. Always at the charter follow up the team that Anthony Barr was going to sign with was the jets before he re-signed with Minnesota. He had said he was going to resign with the jets, and then changed his mind and re-signed with Minnesota Bella follow-up Ryan Griffin. Of course, he played quarterback before we were mocking him and saying that as he ever played quarterback before. And nobody's ever seen him pass in a football game except preseason. He was the quarterback food to lane four to lane. I gotta get my mouth where food to lane. That's all the fact checks and follow ups last podcast. We made a butchery of Alaska like that though. Yeah. That's the point. We try to have fine. We're we should play for the buccaneers. It's all about the phone. That's so let's get down to some signings. He's been going on with the buccaneers and a little bit across the league big signing. We had was a Bush Perelman wide receiver from number. That's right. He played with the Browns last year on a one year deal. He signed in October last year he made sixteen receptions for three hundred and forty yards in two touchdowns. Okay. That's quite a hefty yards per catch. I think he was right around twenty two yards per catch. He had agreed verbally to resign. With the Browns on a one year deal worth four million. But changed his mind and signed with the bucks. This was after Odell Beckham junior was signed to the Browns and paramount wanted out of his deal hours later, his manager Rosenhaus and the GM for the Browns mutually agreed that they didn't want Perriman there. So he was the first round pick with the ravens in two thousand fifteen was there for three years. I don't even remember him on. That's not surprising because he was used very sparingly. The surprising for a first round pick. He has not been on the field the whole lot inches and he's young. He's like twenty five. Yes. So in the beginning of his career. Yeah. Areas is talking about he wants faster people at the receiver position on on the defense in those special teams, you just want to say. People might been the Josh health all over again or we signed what was in Olympia or something here. We got fat check for next week. I don't even remember him. Did we had for Dem's? Yeah. Yeah. We got him for kickoff. Returns room. Blazey ah didn't anything could do much more. Now, I've watched game film on chard paramount and day owned Buchanan Orland Becker, we signed it has some interesting stuff with with sharp paramount. They didn't really say anything there to make me go good. He can get behind defenders a little bit. But he's not busing open like the Sean Jackson, boys. So we, of course, it's not the Sean Jackson. He'll be able to get a little bit off top. I think service of. Yeah. What they just said. He wasn't given many opportunities that might be too. He just wasn't on field a whole lot. I'm curious in our receiver core where hell and up. Are they going to use them like what's his forte? Do you think? Or was there is not enough. They're not enough there. But with the Browns, he he went deep a lot. But he only. Started one game in two thousand sixteen one game in two three games of two thousand seventeen and two games in two thousand eighteen he played in sixteen games in two thousand sixteen eleven games. A two thousand seventeen and ten games in two thousand eighteen. So he just has not been on the field a lot. He's got a career out of thirty seven games. He's played in. He's only started six a hundred twenty six targets the fifty nine receptions nine hundred sixteen yards for an average of fifteen point five yards per catch about last year with the Browns. He was up around twenty two yards per catch a little over twenty two point two four or something. So his his forte seems to be catching the ball deep. It'd be interesting. Yeah. It'll be interesting to see where we put him if he's going to be a starter for us or if he's going to be v wide receiver station on. All right. So what about Buchanan we'll hold on? Let me finish her. Parents time slowdown. Against carolina. He went up against cornerback. Dante Jackson in two thousand eighteen week fourteen. And he caught a deep ball sixty six yarder from Baker Mayfield. After he beat cornerback. Dante Jackson week sixteen against Cincinnati. He caught about three or four deep balls. Now. Just nothing special as you sparingly. Like, I said and out of the film. I did watch he did drop one pass that was right in his hand going across the middle. So he might have a little case of the drop sees, and he has some decent moves far shaking guys. But again, nothing special. He had twenty one point two five yards per catch with Cleveland last year but twenty five targets sixteen reception. So it looks like he gets a about a seventy percent catch rate somewhere that they took. Okay. Now, let's get the Buchanan, Molly, hold your horses your horses. Both of them were pretty funny in the sense that they've had different numbers throughout their tenure in NFL. Don't see them. That's Wearne Bershad pyramid. Had the number to head to number eighteen in two thousand sixteen when he first came. In the league. And then in two thousand seventeen in eighteen he had number eleven and then when he went to the Redskins EVA's number nineteen. And then when he went to the Browns he was number nineteen. So he switched numbers between years two thousand seventeen two thousand eighteen he didn't really played for the Redskins. I think he signed with them during preseason and was released in the Browns pick him up. He said thing with same thing with Buchanan. He started off two thousand fourteen with number thirty six and then in two thousand fifteen to two thousand eighteen he's number twenty. So we don't know what numbers are going to have coming can look twenty that's Romney's number. I don't think he can. I think they've retarded. Here we go follow up. It'll be interesting to see paramount picks up number eleven it was to Shawn's number now. But seems like number eighteen is when he came in the league with so that'll be interesting. If you can is a different story. I watched a lot of film on him. And he seems to be a very good pickup. I think he's going to feel in good for Kwan. He has very good football IQ. Appears he's never had a position he attacks the gaps. Very well doesn't ever choose the wrong. One. Didn't see them miss put one tackle. And that was when he launched at Todd Gurley from the side. It really wasn't his fault. He just really launched to try to get to him. And he did slow girly down enough for somebody else to tackle him. Linebacker. I feel down asking he's a linebacker and a strong safety. Okay. That's I've afflict anyplace safe. I think we're gonna use him as linebacker as he about. I mean, he's a veteran, but how up tweet from Greg. Meaning he's twenty six. Okay. He's twenty six years old. He came in the league in two thousand fourteen I think we covered all his drafting stats couple podcasts. I thought he was older. That's interesting. I like that though I like the young guys 'cause you dump a bunch of money into an older guy. And they're just gonna end up leaving on a few years. This is true. I'd like to have a team of bunch of good younger guys. So that we can keep them for right more than two years. I don't know. But it didn't really work out with Kwon hump. Didn't. They left us on they could get more money. But we had them for years that seems to be about the average now they pay for their rookie contracts, and then they're known. Yeah. We get them weather cheap. Let somebody else pay on the big money and see if they actually perform after that Labonte. Thank we never learn. So let me go keep them Donald Smith with the canon one thing I could say about him. He is definitely not scared of contact. He's a good tackler. And he does he does not have a problem with hidden fees. Like, he he's always he's always facing the ball. I like that. He doesn't turn around as one of the problem. And God last season. They were terrible that everybody on the secondary was terrible for it interceptions. Now one was ever looking at the ball. Right. Became seems to always be looking at the ball of quarterbacks. Got the ball. He's looking at quarterback quarterback the receiver. He's looking at the receiver reminds me of like l'amante in his early. Here's always head is Baal hawk hawk may became seems to be the same way his stance don't show, but he's all over the field. I mean all over the field. He's in he's involved in just about every tackle. And he gets right up in the mix of everything has he been the cardinals since two thousand fourteen. Yes, he was drafted by the cardinals and beverage Aaron yes, he played with Todd balls for one year and two thousand fourteen. Todd balls left. Yes. And then James Becker came in and has been as defensive coordinator from two thousand fifteen to seventeen don't know who is different coordinator was last year that team was forgettable all were horrible. Yeah. Absolutely home last year. There was an interesting play-off Sol against the Rams week seven two thousand seventeen would they on Buchanan day own canon? Greg getting everybody right on that one day, own Buchanan. He went into the whole running back was coming the between the center and the right guard and Buchanan got up in that whole and the fullback came and they both collided with each other. You could probably hear it at the top of the stands, but Buchanan held his ground. And I like that he did not try to avoid the block. And he just went. They both went shoulder to shoulder and slam a one thing. One thing I always liked about von David was he's able to get off blocks. He hasn't been as good at it the past few years, but when I came into the league, he was a master ended a voting blocks and getting off the block to make tackle Buchanan seems to be pretty decent at that not so much voting blocks, but being able to get off of the blogs. So that's what you wanted to linebackers. You got these big ole lineman coming out there. Trying to block them came having. Yeah. Another thing I really like about Buchanan. This is probably my favorite thing. This is a personal preference. He wears tendon bands on his knees. Just like Darrell McCoy does on his elbows. It makes him extremely easy to identify on game. Phil because if you don't know watching game fill with the buccaneers is absolutely atrocious because of their numbers, it's hard to read their numbers. It's hard to see who's doing what. So I always have to write down and identify players by what they wear and Buchanan wears tended bands on his knees. Makes it really easy to spot him. I know who he is. He had an interception for a touchdown in two thousand fifteen week fifteen against Sam Bradford when he was playing Philadelphia. It was nothing special on Buchanan's fault. Bradford through the pass rate to him. But he's not at least at least they didn't drop it. Stand there. Like what the hell do I do that? And then he ran it in for a touchdown. So that's what I got on watching the film with Perriman and day own. Okay. So let's talk about our linebacker core. Well, quick because we've had a lot of moves their Kwan's gone. We we still have Lante we resigned. Kevin minter. Yes. Signed him to a one year deal reportedly worth one point five million. And then we lost at areas Taylor to was it the Browns and the bears Browns Brown's got a two year five million dollar deal. Yeah. With two point five million guaranteed for hill. But I'll tell you. Why scooping everybody up aren't they? We're trading around players. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, we got Perriman Browns and the Tennessee titans and the Oakland Raiders seem like they're doing all the big work and free agency. The there is Taylor was real disappointment to me, it seemed like when he changed his name from Clinton to Taylor. He just started playing kind of blessed. I haven't trying to think for two days, what has old last name going Clinton? Okay. Really threw me when he changed his name because nobody really mentioned it. And I'm sitting here watching game film. I'm going who's this guy? Who's got what happened to the Wisey wearing number? He he did. Okay. Filling in for Kwan last year after Kwan got hurt. But he just didn't do anything special. Now what we saw in previous year. Yeah. Not novel. We saw Norman when he got put in remember. He was very good at I think it was in a preseason. He no I'm taking 'em Jay Stewart knocking the balls out. But there's Clinton dares Taylor really popped off a couple times when he was put in did some good plays. But then when he was putting kind of reminds me of the Godwin gobble was put in the starting role with Sean Jackson out really do anything drops. It makes you wonder why sometimes these guys can come in sparingly do really good. But then when they're put in a larger role, they just kind of blend into the background. I got on the I want to look anywhere last Cameron. Lynch is still up for free agency. Devante bond that we resign him. Oh, man. I want to say, yes, he was a restricted free agent. So we might have. Okay. So Cameron Lynch is only other one. We got. Yes, we saw that we resigned. Devante bond. We mentioned not on the podcast when it happened. Yes. Back on March fifth. You're deal to league minimum. So cameron. Lynch is the only other linebacker outstanding that hasn't been re-signed. So how many linebackers we got now? Kevin minter. Devante von levonne Tae Yoo cannon four got to be more. What about Riley? I think he's under contract odor daughter. Okay. So they'll give free agency list. So and then we did sign an inside linebacker Corey Nelson to reserves contract. So he may or may not make the team. Coming off of a a C L hair. Roy Beck with with his ankle problem. Where was he might never play football? Again. See that hundred Dimic never heard a hammer and Emmanuel Smith never heard him. So we might be set on our linebacker core. We've got one two three four five six seven eight nine ten eleven twelve guys signed right now. Right now, I'm sorry. Eleven guy sign right now. One right. Yes. So we'll say we're gonna we're gonna need a lot. Not really allow outback sliced defensive end. Yeah. Did you see we were in the running for Marcus golden to pass rusher? Yeah. And he he signed with the giants look, oh that was one free agent. We were possibly going after it didn't work out. Interesting. We lost Andrew Adams today. Safety. Yeah. He went to the lions and he signed a one year contract. Bullock do. Yeah. He had four hundred sections on season three in one game. So that's why I didn't call them AAA. We're to go to the lion. So now, you know, one more person at him. We re signed kicker call cintos? Yeah. And that was good. So I guess when I get mad Brian. Yeah. I'm glad glad about that. Me too. A lot of fans Bryant, but why I'm just I'm just not a big fan. You know, say it over and over bringing guys back Rian coaches back. He's especially when they leave on bad terms. Listen to me, it's his age. And the fact that he was injured last season and miss some games injured in his hamstring hamstring that to kick. Brought. Yeah, if it was a shoulder or. And five, but yeah, hamstring little those things seem to be pesky away. Yeah. Exactly. Like, it's kind of a record. Well, that's Carlos Santana see that grainy groin injury that nagged him for a while. That's how we got him after he had recovered, but it kept him out for almost the full season. Yeah. Since my brunt. So all he's going to staffer at least two seasons. Oh, man. Didn't look it for his he has somebody help him on in the field like this arm. Became a wellcoll. You're walkable. A cross between a Walker at a waffle a walkable. Mitch unrein restructured his deal. Did you see that note? Whoa. I'm not meant to online Allen. Really? He then pay cut. Good. Good. Good one million dollar pay cut, but he can earn it back in incentives, and then they scrapped his guaranteed money next year. So he'll be a free agent next season. So what's getting this year? He's getting four million guarantees well, and he had previously. He had a million and a half year and team like with the bonuses and stuff here. Here's what I'm going to say about this. When we drafted him after I looked at the game field. He's a hustler. The guy is always going. His Motors always going. He's always going to the ball other than that. He's just a guy. I mean, he's not going to shed, double blocks. He's not going to do any spectacular moves to get to the quarterback. But he he hustles. So he's a good gap. Stop. He's not he's not horrible again rotation guy. Yes. I have no complaints about him last season. But you didn't really here's a lot. I mean, he just didn't do any right? If you watch game. And he's always always hustling. I mean, he's not out there taking pays off. Right. Let's good. I'm glad we got him out. And that was a really bad thing for him to do take a pay cut. You know, he becomes a free agent at the end of the season, which maybe he wanted to be maybe he's like down in Tampa. Let's do one more year and then move on. I don't know Mitch unrine was released after a failed physical. Let's say three point seven five billion. Well, that's a shame though. He never even played for never played a snap. He was out the second week of training camp with a concussion. Nobody knows what happened. Nobody's reported on it. It just mysteriously boom, and he was in concussion protocol and was never cleared to resume football activities. So it was he had a history of concussion, and we Dan, and this one seemed to really give him a problem to be out of whole year. Yeah. I mean, he's beyond. I wouldn't think. So he must have some kind of lingering symptom vision memory something. This. It's crazy. That's very serious painting. Barbara was resigned to a one year deal worth two million. Yes, how we tender name. He was a restricted free agent. You tend to you only. It's like a procedural always think of tenderizer meet you just take your player and you hit it with a stick. I'm tender tender in my run evac. It's not that's not how he basically extent him an offer and it can be league minimum. And they're on your team. They can't go anywhere. And then we actually made a deal with them. Yeah. He didn't take the time. He took the tender offer. But then he just went ahead signed a contract. Yeah. Yeah. So that that's extremely cheap one year two million for painting. Barbara complaining they wish we got seven Coleman. Oh, yeah. I know. I don't think so either I think having Kalman's any better than Peyton. I have it on record Malia tell you when we got rid of Doug Martin and Peyton Barbara came to full-time running back. I was excited because Peyton Barbara runs hard. And I said disk, I went through a messy we at that point. We had a year or two years of film on him where he came in filled in every now and then the guy never lost yardage. I was like he's incredible heat. It doesn't matter if he gets on the line of scrimmage or where he gets hit. He will always gain yardage. And I'm so excited about that going into this season. And then like the first three games he was getting tackled behind the line of scrimmage, constantly, never. Oh, yeah. There was one plan. I've talked about this one play can't remember what team against, but he got hit four times might have been five behind the line of scrimmage and still made fourteen yards credible. I was like well, the guy though fighter the one thing. I don't like about Peyton Bayer barber is he doesn't avoid contact. He doesn't try to guys out a just runs. Right. And you will see you. I it'll be open field. And there will be one guy on the field. He will run at that one guy and put his shoulder down surprise, given what Bruce Arians how he's talked about painting barber that he didn't get a bigger deal. You're a lot more long-term deal a little bit. But you gotta remember. I mean Bruce areas, especially like the combine and stuff they're just blowing smoke up. Everybody's blood. Remember all that crap. They said about this Sean we wanted to show them back yet. And it was just that was just smokes funny. I listen to Scott Reynolds on Peter report podcast where he was broadcasting from the combine, and he was the only one on the podcast, and he was talking about how he thinks sometimes the bucks organization might feed the media these story lines, and he was. Typically, referencing the Sean Jackson thing where they're saying. Oh, we like, and we want him to come back that would make sense that would go back to the excess media that we were talking, you know, these guys are given storylines and then they'd just report them. Yeah. It's that quick pro quo. And so they're feeding them these stories so they can drum up interest for a player like to Sean Jackson. Yes. So makes sense makes sense. But at the same time, it makes you not trust the media as much when you feel like they're just a mouthpiece for the organization are being manipulated by. We're being manipulated. But I think I think they know maybe those, but they're going to they're going to do it anyhow because I got to keep the access to the to the organization the players. Well, actually, I think in a subsequent podcast with the rest of the guys. They were joking about that that they were going to say something on have their press passes poll. Really? Yeah. That would be interesting. They should. I mean, it could happen. But it was just an interesting tidbit listening to him. And I like listening to some of the guys at Peter report. They drive me crazy. But they just rub me the wrong way. Sometimes, but it is interesting to kind of get that insider perspective Saint Joe bucks fan. Speaking of which Steve is one of the jobs from Joe boats fan said he'd heard someone at the combine say that the Sean Jackson, and he he wouldn't he was very vague get he had to be vague because he said if he got this out this went out to Sean Jackson would probably never be able to be on another team again. But somebody had told him that the Jackson did something so bad as a teammate while Buchan near that Joe is been just couldn't wait to run the Sean Jackson out of town. And he said he can't say anything until after the show Jackson retires. It's that bad. Is it wasn't me legal? But it was something very very very bad as a teammate. And I'm thinking, you know, it's something like sleeping with somebody whose wife girlfriend. Yes. Some bad stuff. Like that. Now when the media comes out and says things like that. Then that makes me go, okay. Now can understand why they were all trying to write? If we had that information, and we can make that decision for ourselves. I guess you. You don't have to drum up the whole, oh he wants to go to another team. And because of what he said about the Rams and all that, you know, when you listen to the interview that the Sean Jackson gave you go these nuts saying he wants to go to the other teams matter of fact, he said worst case scenario if I had to go to another team, it would be the ram. Yeah. It's not somebody saying I want to go to the Rams, right? So yes. But you know, if they would come out with that information, but he didn't find this out until the combat the ass. Apparently, they these guys go in the locker room, they get to see how all players interact, and they pick up on it. And they know I'm sure players tell him stuff off the record and everything. But I just wish they would be more more transparent with what they know. You could say that. That's fine. Say look, I know something about the Sean Jackson that is so bad that he would never be able to play in the NFL again. That's why I don't want him on his team. You say that. I'm like fine. Okay. I agree with you. I'll go with that. Just tell us later down the road kind of like tell us why no expenses and playing Peter report that says. Yeah. Somebody please tell us what happened in two thousand eleven. So anyhow found that interesting Steve is bit was bump fire. What else was it? He was mad about oh the book at here's in that picture of the defense. He did not like that. When I got from that was that he likes Frank grime. He's he's at now. I like Bryan Grimes was a person a person he was he's kind of saying you can't you can't say do you can't go out there and not play football because you're not making enough money, or for whatever reason it stay on our team. Just not go. You might be a great person. But I don't want somebody out to have this not putting forth hundred ten percent. I'm with you. But physically I think Brazilians with two let's hope I hope so, you know, and that's something else. I'm thinking about to you know, you when you hear Bruce Arians talking about we want to keep the, Sean and all this stuff. And we don't know how much Bruce Arians is persona is an act. We don't know when he was with Arizona the first year. He was very whipped tannin six second year. He went eleven and five, but then without Todd Bowles air in two thousand fifteen he went thirteen three and then seven eight and one and then eight so how much of this. You know, what I would still take seven. Seventy five and eleven is we have a really low bar. Well, you know, this is something I say all the time special Tamale, I don't really care about wins and losses. I'm gonna do care. But what matters to me? The most is good entertaining football. I don't like to see blowout games where we just get beat in the third lovey Smith. I hate that or games where we just do not perform on get beat. I want to say good competitive games. Now, if we play good competitive games that we lose. It's not that bad. Of course. I'd rather as win. But I want to say, this is entertainment. So I wanna see good entertaining gay. And last year we had a lot of good entertaining game. And then we had a lot that were just totally uninspiring. This is true too. Yeah. Teams are and. And this season we read their lighten it up. Are we were just totally flat, very one dimensional team. We are. But we were competitive. I mean, we didn't get a Kagame's the only game. I can think of where I went. Wow, we just got. But stop and say maybe in the ravens game. I mean, Chicago's a score was bad. The I would say that. That's what I say about Chicago game is because the whole game. We were never in it. I mean, we could move the ball. And we couldn't stop them. But we couldn't come back. Yes. But with the rest of the games, there was always we can come back where we did come back or whatever and made entertaining football the but the bears game was just not entertained. It was entertaining. If you like watching teams get beat up, but and it was entertaining for fans for sure that Chicago Bears have signed Ted Larsen to one year. Yes. Oh, no, Ted Larsen for the buccaneers. It's speaking of other buccaneers being signed XBox Luke Stocker was signed to a two year deal with Atlanta. So he's reunited with their cutter cut. And and yeah, this'll be interesting to see if stuck Stocker goes there and just poops all over the place. Screw you cutting me and Kevin Pamphile was resigned to a one year deal with the titans. He. He's finale. He was selling the league. Yeah. He actually played left tackle last year because their starting left tackle got hurt and he came in stepped in and they liked what he did. So they resigned and actually resigning pretty quick. He was he was horrible. When he was with us. He'll be there with Humphries. Yes. I'm fun tidbit about Humphry f we talked about in the last podcast, but the patriots came to him after I heard about that he had verbally agreed with the titans, and he considered the patriots. And then stuck with tight. I don't know how much of that's Bs. Biaz came from it wasn't the Boston Herald. It was dead KYW read it from the patriots beat reporter. I just don't know how I mean think about it. If you're if you could get the same amount of money for the patriots, which one would you got into the paint? Jan exactly. But I think it's a matter of he firmly in green with the tightness move could. I think he was sticking his agreement. Don't know do not know. But that's one place. We thought he might ago because he'd be perfect there. Ten meaning he saw west Welker OMON Amdahl fits that mold. Totally. It's going to be interesting at Tennessee. It's just I don't know how that's going to work out for him the one place. I was really worried about him going was New Orleans. Yeah. My biggest fear. God he didn't go to New Orleans and drew Brees with enlighten us up for the next guy. He'd him so much. So we talked about in our know your enemy free agency addition with New Orleans Mark Ingram you and I had a disagreement there when he could go somewhere else and get more money. You were correct. What what was that? Molly, I wanna say it again. He went to the ravens how many how many would it back. So they have the was good grief. Alex collins. Yeah. I think he left. Okay. Yeah. I don't I don't know who's going where they hit. They do rotational system. Yeah. They had running back by committee because I had to run running out sauce year or fantasy. We're here for you. Not great. 'cause they couldn't decide who was going to be in the committee. Survivor. The ravens getting founded off the island and the patriots as another to. I can't think of who it is that I would just I would never take any other running backs. It doesn't matter because one week. They do great great two weeks the road. But then the third week. They don't even see the field. Right. A lot of teams are going to that though running back by committee. Don't get as many workhorse running backs like the Melvin Gordon is that she used to used to you know, every team at a workhorse running back. But if he say, you've got one really good running back to pay a lot of money or you have three mediocre running back, and you don't have to pay a lot of money. So I mean, if you can pay two million dollars for three each for three running backs that's only six dollars and bells getting how much sound like a bargain shopper. NFL? She'll be lucky. They don't have coupons Mallaby all every time this saints lost defensive end. Alex Okafor going to the chief interesting that three year deal where twenty four million. So those are two of their big free agents that they lost marketing Graham and Okeafor dotted think they'd lit Ohka, forego, boo. I didn't think so either he wasn't there that long now. And did he come from the looking at up? It was another red team. It's the Zona karnal he actually played under AirAsia one hundred Bruce Arians and Todd Bowles is a linebacker into lasting bras. We didn't go after and now. Money money money. Running by running back is Ahah. Crowell is available and Benjamin Albright is saying keep an eye on the buff. Do Johnson's been mentioned. Also, he knows I mean, if pain Barbara's our guy, well, they haven't really said that they said they liked painting Barbara ROY do play. Oh. Necessarily guy, right? There could have been blown smoke. So we got Andre Ellington back there. They'll know if he's going to make the roster as it stands is Roger still on the team. Now, he's a free anti okay? So and then we have Roggio, which nobody knows what's an all. What he could do? He definitely can't catch a pal. We know that brigades Roggio, and maybe we'll draft one. I don't know Peter report they were talking about maybe in the later rounds can be that's all I have to leader all dish in workshop is this Saturday, March sixteenth two thousand nineteen if you're interested if you know, anybody that's interested.
