I love when a dude is super talented and also such a massive pain in the ass that multiple teams just hit their breaking points.

Houston is going to be one of those trendy Super Bowl picks.

Seems like they are loading up this year to make a run rather than building for one more year. I'm curious to see if the gamble pays off, though we won't be able to see the long-term results for a few years.
San Francisco has always been my favorite booing city. I don't mean the people boo louder or longer, but there is a very special intimacy. Music, that's what it is to me. One time in Kezar Stadium they gave me a standing boo.

Pretty far for the Bears to move down.
Drafts are like snowflakes, no two are alike.

Man they wanted him out of buffalo. 2024 6th, 2025 5th plus diggs for a 2024 2nd. Bills take a $31 million dollar hit this year ($4 million more than keeping him) but clear $25 million in 2025 cap room.

Texans get diggs on what is basically a series of team options out to 2027 as they can cut him for 0 dead cap any year after this season. $18-$19 million per year ish.

Further proof that simply looking at trade compensation without fully considering all other aspects of the situation is a poor way to gauge a players actual value. There are so many variables at play with contracts, cap situations, market needs, draft alignment, etc that make for a lot of head scratchers.

Sounds like they're not even going that far and letting him be a free agent next year: https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/398 ... diggs-deal
