  • Brock Osweiler traded

    Texans get cap relief and a 4th round pick from the Brown this year.
    Browns get Osweiler, the Texans 2nd round pick next year and a 6th round pick this year.

    Browns are supposedly expected to pay a little of Osweiler's salary in exchange for a trade to another team for draft picks. With all their massive cap space, for basically $10 million they might have purchased a 2nd and let's say a 4th round draft pick.
    Also possible the Browns just swallow $16 million and cut him. Possibly package their 1st round pick and this next years 2nd for Garoppolo.

    That's interesting. We'll see how it plays out.

    Already wrote it in the other thread, except the bit about the Browns being stupid enough to take on the contract and offer anything in return to the Texans.

    Though getting a second next year kinda makes up for it. It'll be the equivalent of a third though if the Texans get Romo.

        The Browns can't spend all their cap space, it could turn out to be a terrific deal for them.
        Wouldn't be shocked if as I wrote, the Browns don't just eat a major portion of the $16 million still guaranteed and trade him for a pick. While he isn't great, he still has potential.
        I wouldn't trade for Garoppolo though. He's not much more of a known factor as Brock was when they took him.

          My understanding is that NFL teams are REQUIRED to spend a certain percentage of the cap limit. The Browns may just be doing that by buying picks. Groundbreaking technique by them?

              I kinda get the feeling the trade was a wash for both sides. They both got something.

                The cap floor isn't an each year thing. It's calculated over multiple years. The last cap floor bracket ran from 2013 to 2016. Each team is required to spend 89% of their cap over that time. If a team had a total cap of $600 million over that time they would be required to spend $534 million by the end of the cap bracket.
                That's also how cap rollover works. If a team under spent in 2013 the remaining cap space would roll over to 2014. That's how Cleveland has such a huge amount of cap space this year. They under spent every year of the last bracket. They now have money to burn and are looking for ways to spend it before the next bracket kicks in.

                  Yea but no decent player wants to go to "kiss your career goodbye" Browns.

                    Last thing the Browns want to do is massively over pay in a multi year contract for a declining assets. Paying for draft picks is a decent idea.

                    Bears are paying Glennon $15 million per year. How much is Brock worse than Glennon? Their stats are damn similar. Crappy Brian Hoyer is making $12 million per. So really, the Browns are paying maybe $2.5 million more than the market would bare for Brock and get a 2nd in return.

                      And this is the last year the Browns have to pay him. The next two aren't guaranteed.

                          It's funny how you so desperately want my opinion that you do call out threads.
                          And what the hell does that thread have to do with me?
