No one was willing to assume his contract, evidently $3mill in 2017 and $4.3mill in 2018 is a steep price for a backup TE.

as always, i think the same thing - won't know much about this draft until at least 3 years down the road, maybe 5.

we got all positions of need in the first 4 picks - pass rushing LB, WR, CB, and RB (RB may only be a backup, but considering LeVeon lack of being able to play 16 games and DeAngelo being gone, i'd say that was a good pick)


the MB tweet about Coates is a non-story. both blew it off in later tweets and you could tell it was a joke. if anything, it just breeds more competition going into camp.

we will see now the draft finishes out today.

Bryant didn't blow it off and it didn't appear to be a joke given he followed it up with a tweet about it being "business" then later deleted the tweets.

So he started his first tweet with "lol," doesn't negate either of the things I brought up. Do you also believe if you begin a sentence with "with all due respect" you get to say whatever you want? Either way, the entire situation isn't a big deal, I just found your reaction funny.

Yeah no big deal, pretty sure Coates already knew Bryant was a human turd.

It was ed for Cleveland to let him go. They have an abundance of cap room and a dearth of talent for their flavor-of-the-month QB to target. Yeah, I get they drafted their "future" at TE but newsflash.....two TE's can play at the same time!

They should have kept him to see how it all pans out. Who knows, the new TE may get hurt, slow to learn the offense, struggle in a certain aspect of the game. Barnidge was a bright spot in the offense and very easily could have still contributed next year especially on a team with the cap room. There was no reason to let him go unless they have inside info on an injury/drug/legal issues.

Looking through the steelers.....eh. I realize they cannot count on Bryant to stick around but though they should have went heavier on defense. The need for a RB was real and glad they got one.

- Coates will apparently be out for a week or so after a knee scope.

- JuJu sprained his ankle day 1, Cameron Sutton went down day 2, and James Conner hurt his shoulder day 3. Not a great start for the rookies.

- Senquez Golson was carted off the field with a hamstring injury. Really sucks for him if it's serious. He was apparently looking pretty good.

Conner sent to Pittsburgh to have his shoulder examined. Hopefully it's nothing serious.
