Oh, is that one always does that.
You know, I'm getting right.
And then stop that one.
All right, We are ready.
Oh, uh, welcome to a SportsCastr I have at Matt Skara.
USN working for unwraps Force Network is my boy at Caleb Condit, US end the worst for unwrapped force network.
I am going toe pays a link toe both of our pockets.
It is titled the M.
C s real sports podcast.
Make sure you guys check that out on Spotify and on apple podcasts.
And for today's topics of discussion, as you could see on the screen, we are going to be talking about the NFL franchise tax, the players who did get extensions and the players who are still going to keep their franchise tag.
And then we'll discuss a little bit of Myles Garrett with his big five year extension.
So I start up with you, Caleb, The big name left on the board who didn't get a big extension is of course, Dak Prescott.
He will still be on the Dallas Cowboys with the one year $31.
So what are What are your thoughts on that? Do you believe that cowboys are gonna regret not giving him a big extension.
Or do do you think it's just gonna hopefully one day pay him off the off season? Well, actually, well, actually, I heard that, uh, that they almost came to a deal, but it was too late when they did in the like, almost a green.
So I think, honestly, if anything, they might reach you do with them, might let him play of this tear reached that same day that they were going to reach today, But they didn't recent a deadline reaching low later.
If not, if he does better than expected, you know, he has more leverage.
If you guys worse, how boys have more leverage.
So, I mean, I think it worked.
I think the cow was probably did that strategically gave him something running.
Look in cash on cashing in time.
I'm so you know, that probably was a such Fiji, uh, organizational plan of that are you know, I was in that.
They just want to see how it pans out this year.
So if he does this thing this year, you can really get a little bad.
But I've been here and he might wanna go have a four year contract.
What? A three year contract I understand was because free agency or something like that.
You must be over the lead like that, you know, leaving catching.
Other time I'm interested in Teoh.
Yeah, I got a I'm kind of the same thing that you're saying.
Uh and I also heard that the Dallas Cowboys at the last minute it was too late.
But they offered him a five year, $110 million contract with the 100 million guaranteed, and he turned that down.
So it's gonna be interesting to see what happens.
I feel like it's because one is fine.
Then they want for, like that.
I personally think that Prescott and he he just wants, uh, like a shorter contract that the same money, like I felt like moneywise.
Like, if you get $110 million with the 100 million guarantee, even though you've only won one playoff game and made the playoffs two times in four years, you obviously take that if it's a four year, but because because it's five years, it kind of gives the cabbage more leverage.
So I understand why he turned it down.
It will be interesting, because now it's kind of like you turned down that contract.
You better playing **** well or else it is.
It's gonna backfire like we've seen it before.
Well, where? You know, players, they like to try and bet on themselves like they get offered a big contract and then just like no, you know what? I wouldn't turn it down.
I'm feeling I'm worth more, and it kind of backfires on that man's, you know, they just get a veteran minimums instead of that they contract.
So it will be interesting to see what what kind of happens there.
But But personally, I feel like Dallas.
They could get something going on.
And, you know, it's gonna be big pressure for Jack tha because he has to perform this year because I'll tell you right now, there, they're not gonna fire McCarthy after year one.
They basically got rid of the problem and Jason Garrett, which that's what a lot of people said.
A lot of people said, like the last couple years, like it's all Jason Garrett's fault.
And now that Garrett is out now It's like, All right, dack, let's see what you got.
You got a You got a suitable winning head coach Mike McCarthy, who's had a great winning percentage.
She's made the playoffs before his final two years of Green Bay.
He helped them with eight straight playoff appearances.
So Mike McCarthy isn't no Slash as a coach.
He's one of he's one of the good coaches in the NFL.
So there's There's a lot of pressure on deck, and hopefully he can perform.
What? It's a good way to the very back on him if he does play like **** this year.
But, I mean, it's not like that's not that's not coming here.
And I like Mike McAra, cracked.
Is the coach of Barca coach is like, No, you know, a.
Or if If, if he doesn't succeed here in Dallas, this fresh air Okay, fine, go.
Some arose, and I think you still ball out.
So I mean, I think they're putting their The Cowboys are putting themselves in position to be able to blame that if they don't perform up, so you know, expectations as his mind.
Yeah, I know that's hard for they position themselves to put themselves in that position.
And there I take it.
Yeah, that is definitely a interesting take their where they're just setting it up.
And and I honestly believe they're They're very isn't an excuse at all for Deck Prescott not to succeed.
And you look at what he has with an offense like you.
Elliot? Yeah, he had a down year, but we know where Zico Elliot could be.
And then they got more in Cooper, whose pay they got.
Michael Gallup was a good receiver, and they drafted one of the best receivers in the draft.
And see you, I am at number 17.
So there's gonna be no excuses as an offense now defensive re defensively.
I want to be surprised if they take another step back just because of the key pieces that they lost.
Especially Byron Jones departing to Miami now, obviously they did sign some players like blame.
They signed Gerald McCoy and, uh, brought back all in Smith after a couple of year hiatus.
So it'll be interesting.
What happens on the defense is that she went to Marcus Lawrence and Jalen Smith, both guys who are already paid on that defense with Sean Ugly and vendor.
And so no using to see what happens there in Dallas.
I'm personally think Dallas is kind of like a nine and seven team.
Just because you don't know knowing the history, what can go wrong, will go room.
I just think that something was gonna happen there.
What about you kill him? Do you think the Cowboys will be another 97 teamer? Well, I have a the question for euro, quick.
How do you feel about their offensive line this year? Oh, their offensive line is still gonna be good.
Even though they lost driving Frederick Junior retirement, they still got one of the federal lines in the NFL.
Like they're still gonna be a top an offensive line, whether they have Travis Brenner or not.
Because let's not forget, they still got tired spit.
They still got Zack Barth, and they still don't lay on Collins like they're still gonna have a good offensive line.
Now, Granted, it won't be like a years past where they were like the cream of the crop, but they're not going to slip from one of the best of one of the worst.
Just cause they want to have a friend.
No, they're They're still going to be up there an offensive line, and yeah, that's that's pretty much all I have to say about that.
I don't think there's gonna be any drop off.
Well, there's obviously going to be a drop off in the offensive line, but nothing to see here.
Yeah, I'll tell you, after you ever played there.
Yeah, and some other players.
All right, Good.
Well, what was the course that you're going to say? I'm going to go back to your question about how you said Do I think the Cowboys are learning something? I really don't know.
To be honest, I think there are a seven and 19 to a 1917 maybe 10 and six.
Are their offense hits on the news? That could be a 13 13.
Uh, you really never know.
You know, they can hit on us.
No, really. Be Gates.
Who's still there? The markets Learning.
Yeah. I think that that's his name.
It's ever aside pretty side of people, so I can give it a whole album.
Give it some time.
There offense is his explosive.
They could be a top team.
If offense doesn't click, it could not be a top team.
So it really understands.
Yeah, most definitely.
And I also and I also think that there's gonna be some pressure on it.
Elliott, Just because last time we saw his ego, Ellen, where he was like, top notch, I believe what's this rookie year? And they went, they went, like, 13 and three.
So it all it all depends on the kind of zika earlier that you're gonna get or you're gonna get.
But is you, Elliot, that kind of carry the cowboys and years passed, Are you gonna get the more passive the office with that where they kind of relied on him and and kind of see, see what happens there? I think it would be a balanced this year, To be honest, though, I think that I mean, they have the receivers to throw the ball.
They have easy you.
So I mean, they do have the the Palins.
I think they could balance out for, like, Why not? Why not? If you get played, if you could balance the game out and just confirms oclock put them in most games back.
Keeps the defense.
Are I could see them.
Okay, well, I think, Yeah, it was definitely.
There are other players that will play on the franchise tag in 2020.
Those 11 players include the Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.
Green, who is one of only two players I have not signed their franchise tenders.
Green himself in unique and got way.
They have not signed their franchise tag CF.
But others you will still play on it is dead for safety.
Justine Simons on the Wyndham Ventures Guard Joe Gleams, Joe through knee.
The Washington's Guard Brandon Sheriff.
The Chargers side end.
Hunter Henry's dealers, but to pre look 100 Williams on the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings in Anthony Harris, Baltimore Ravens and Matthew Jude on and possibly one of the, uh, an outstanding defender.
The Buccaneers a Shaquille Barrett.
He's gonna still be playing on that franchise.
You get out of all those players that were just named off.
What one player? Are you surprised that didn't get an extension that you thought that they might extend to be on a secure berry.
I thought that they might have extended him.
I don't see why they didn't are.
Why they couldn't have.
I think he should have got extended for sure.
They're gonna I mean, they're gonna need sometime Brady things.
They gave Brady solid offense.
They're gonna need some the defense with its.
OK, I think he'll get the backboard temper eventually.
Shoutouts and bears part. Thank you.
Yeah, definitely a great today.
Thank you. Have There's Paul.
I also agree through as well.
I was kind of surprised that I should feel Barrett.
Did you get an extension? Especially with the kind of year that he had? I think he almost had 20 sacks election, didn't he? He had, like, 18 or 19 sacks, some somewhere along those lines, like he had yet a breakout year.
I thought for sure they were going to give him at some kind of extension.
But a sometimes with players do is they have that kind of chickens, like you know what? I had a great year.
You're not gonna pay me, Uh, I'm gonna show you up.
I'm a play great again.
And you know it's only gonna help shack birth like I'm for sure, guaranteeing that you'll get paid.
He's definitely You're gonna get paid next exhausted because, uh, veneered.
But I need everything on the defense.
It just all depends on what kind of money he'll get.
Will he get, like, the top notch and Russian type money, or will he get kind of the middle of the road? Because I'm when when you talk about a guy who almost had 20 ***, you're not just gonna let him walk after one? She's, uh you're gonna you're gonna keep him and make sure that you hold them.
It's just now, Now, the now the call arms are in a shack.
Barrett's favor where we're Hey, if I just gotta If I could repeat that same season if I could get you know, you know, I also if he can get, like, 17 sacks again like if you could get a high digit number in sacks, that then if he'll he'll he'll for sure.
Anything he's gonna Hey.
And if it's not from Tampa, he could get paid some morose.
Yeah, you're right.
Look, both Stephanie, I believe in a NFL teams.
There are two key components that you're gonna need an NFL team.
You've got any other quarterback, and you gotta have the edge rusher and shack.
Baron definitely fills a requirement for an education.
So if Timber baby decided to drop the ball in short cache of money that he deserves, then yields is go elsewhere and and succeed to Pentagon.
What? What seemed that? IHS Max. Thanks.
No other definitely big fax there.
Uh, now we're gonna kind of movinto the two players who did not sign the franchise 10 years I touched on him earlier, and now we're gonna get bored detail.
It is aging, green and unique and got weight.
Ah, what player are you most surprised with? That didn't sign the franchise tag A did in Green or Yannick ungodly neither.
I could expect them on different teams next.
To be honest, I could expect them on different teams.
I not see a J green with the Bangles any longer or unique in God way.
I'm interested here.
What did you think? I think you expected any of these guys need it.
I was I was going to surprise that A.
Green, then assigned the franchise tag.
I thought for sure that A.
Green with a sign just kind of help hope Jill Burrows Development Just because I went when you're a rookie quarterback, you're gonna need any kind.
Any kind of receiving you could get And, uh, at Celester says, Jaguars need to sign getting like he simply doesn't want to re sign with struggling team.
I fully I fully agree with that.
I feel like getting and got away has made clear that he doesn't want to be here at.
I feel like I'm like Tony.
Connie's toe used to fill that man's requests.
You know, it's just like with with Uh huh just like what? The employees.
If there is a disgruntled employee like in your workplace, you're not just gonna keep him around and deteriorate the place, you want to get him out out of there and, you know, build with the kind of system that you haven't I feel like Jacksonville.
I thought objective was just waiting on the right train.
Kind of like the situation that they did with Jalen Ramsey, like what they do in Jena Ramsey was, they just waited and waited until someone gave them what they wanted.
And the Rams bit the bullet they get into first in a second.
So I think they'll be kind of waiting for some team that will be willing to get They have, ah, give, like a second for a unity God.
So he should have signed was just because, like I said before, you gotta help the rookie.
Oh, and, uh, what? They went the disastrous team like the Cincinnati Bangles.
Because that's what they are.
They're they're a disaster job was gonna help. They can get.
And if you can have a top receiver like a J.
Green in there because what injury greens healthy.
He's a top 10 NFL receiver When when he's healthy.
Like like people forget about that because A J.
Green he's got on earth last couple years.
But, well, meaning you don't really have any.
But the last time he waas help me now, who's the last time he was? I also got to say 2015 was the last time we saw, like, a fully vintage healthy Agent Green that that I remember anyways, that's what year he had in 2016 but I e his definitely.
I don't know if he's top 10.
I really i e He has the he has of us. Maybe.
You mean he hasn't played yet, so I don't know, give you top 10.
I Let's have a year.
Do you expect from a bigger Well, when? Well, the guy here I expect from a J.
Green, I expect when he has job.
Er I expected close to 1000 yards.
Just because he's gonna he's gonna have the number one guy.
I mean, uh, I'd probably say close to 1000 yards, probably six or seven touchdowns, that That's what I personally think.
I feel like, Well, me.
I feel like he's gonna rack ability.
I mean, I said, You sound like Max Kellerman.
No, but I really don't see him getting 1000 just because I don't think that will be, you know, getting the routes.
I think he'll be on most short routes.
Easy route sneak around.
I think you know the guy that's gonna be running deep in, you know, if anything getting big yards this year, I think it would be John Ross or Tyler Boyd.
I couldn't goes to receivers on the shingles that you could expect.
So, you know, have a crazy season Just because you know John Rossi fast, you could have a breakout year this year.
I mean, maybe I could be found open and get a lot of yards.
Tyler Boyd dynamic receiver is gonna be able to run those nice routes.
And then, you know, being is going to be, you know, I think possession or city, you know, they need amount.
They're going one on one a J. Green.
You know, Red John run on a J.
Broke it. That's so I mean, I think he Yeah.
See, I think if anything, he'll have Unless you are ours.
If that would be like it Did you last yards, Morticia? I'm good.
I'm gonna on the opposite side.
I kind of feeling he's gonna have, like, coolio gels type season where where he's gonna rack up a lot of yards.
But the touchdowns were gonna come less like I feel like he's gonna set up.
He's gonna set up the Bangles to get touchdowns, but though probably might look towards someone else, like whether it's running the ball with Joe Mixon, are just heading other receivers like Tyler Boyd or John Ross.
And I think this is gonna be an important year for John Ross because people forget like John Ross.
He set the record in the 40 in the 40 yard dash for the fastest and, uh, think NFL history with the time he recorded.
So the time it trimester conference John Ross, cause the last two years she's been pretty much banked up and, you know, it's it's gonna be interesting to see what happens with the Cincinnati Bengals as a whole as a whole.
This does this 2020 season.
Yeah, yeah, I kind of see what happens there and now in one of the players that was on in franchise tag.
Yeah, well, most definitely see by seasons and whether whether a J.
Green will get paid like a good receiver or whether the Cincinnati Bangles might even trade him during the season because he doesn't want to be there.
So it will be interesting to see what happens there.
But I mean, that would be good for him.
I think that would be good for you.
should already got traded.
I mean, I wouldn't I wouldn't be bad to see him on the Patriots with Cam.
Who? That That parlays and into my next exact question.
If you're a degree in trade, yeah, for my 11 viewers in here, William Thing adfl I see on here.
How do you offer it to you? I think a J Green and Cam leaving on the pages with the every Bill Bell, Jack, I think that would be dope.
I think that's something to see out of quarantine.
And I think I think having how do you determine? I would definitely feel very intrigued seeing Camden with a J.
Green on the New England pages and my bin.
If that actually happens, I feel like you could be ableto pencil pencil on New England as one of those teams that could possibly make it to the Super Bowl.
Now, don't get me wrong like I'm very high on the New England Patriots, even or the science camera before this time, Kim.
I just I really think I need a receiver.
Well, then they gradually Nadelmann and then they also got Make your hair and Mohammed Sunu So they got they got? They got some weapons? No.
You gotta give Kim like you camp a day green.
You looking visit every day.
Okay, well, we'll let me The kind of receiving are looking receivers that Cam Newton when he was with the Carolina Panthers.
He had yet Okay, receivers.
He didn't have top notch receivers.
Like he didn't have Devon Funches for a couple of years.
I think he had deejay war.
Samuel, those guys are or really tough Koch neighbors.
Yeah, I was saying you give him a J.
Green, then it's a little bit different.
If you give any quarterback a J.
Green, it could make a big difference on on anybody's offense.
You have a point of it.
Even if he even if your facility Mr Bids I mean a party.
Yeah, because they even even Mr Biscay, if he gets Agent Green, his quarterback plane will go up.
If you give any quarterback a top receiver like there, they think they have a trust.
Mitchell Robiskie has, uh uh, Alan Roberts wrote me.
Another option is by far better.
Well, I don't know about that.
If I If I choose Well, Wen, healthy with the healthy scenario, I am taking a J Green over Alan Robinson.
I like is it'll be a hot take, but yeah, that is too.
Yes. I don't know.
He hasn't been healthy.
I traveled an obvious thing, though.
He might. My ball.
Yeah, I was, so he might ball out, and hopefully he does.
Because the Chicago Bears, we're gonna need pretty much everything on offense for them to work.
Have a chance to have a 500 type scene.
Now one player who did have a franchise tag, but they were able to reach a deal, and I'm glad they did.
It is the man who carried the Tennessee Titans all the way to the A F C Championship game.
Derrick Henry, the Tennessee Times and Derek Country reached a four year, $50 million deal with the Times.
And that includes $25.
5 million guaranteed.
Do you believe the Tennessee Titans underpaid Derrick Henry? Or do you believe they paid off just right? Or do they shock in the overpaid? Mm.
I mean, I think they paid him her.
Could be fined if you could go back to the number numbers for me.
How much of it is guarantee? 25.
5 million Is gear guaranteed.
Okay, so basically half Look, it changed.
I mean, I think, uh, it paid him just right.
You know, they're gonna give him 25 mil, and he could probably part of the anymore.
And the arrests tangled my words, but you could earn the rest in, Um, I mean, I think it was just in the middle of this. Fine.
I definitely agree.
I'm glad their country got a I wasn't I wasn't sure of.
Tennessee was gonna pay only season.
I thought they were gonna ride Derrick Henry out with the franchise tag, maybe franchise him again and then finally paying this money.
But the kind of season he had last year was, which was a great year, especially when he kind of went off.
I say from the wasn't like Week 14 all the way until, like, the division round of the playoffs, like Derrick Henry was the best running back in football.
Yeah, you basically single handed, he single handedly carrying the times all the way toe.
So the A F C championship game.
Kind of like what LeBron did with the 2018 Cleveland Cavaliers, where he's a single handedly carried them to the N B A Finals.
That that's what That's what Derrick Henry did with the Tennessee Titans.
Except he made always the championship game.
Yeah, I got paid.
I definitely feel like it's a good contract.
They get a given Christian McCaffrey sideline because I don't think he's a Christian McCaffrey type player just because, like Chris McCaffrey basically is the Carolina Panthers.
You look at Tennessee.
They have got, like, other things to worry about, especially now that that they got a J.
Brown who could be a a stud receiver entering a here.
Number two, especially what he did as a rookie.
So it will be interesting to see what happens with the Tennessee Titans.
Uh, I had I myself personally think that Tennessee Times Air gonna do with the Tennessee Titans do, and with all the high expectations, followed a eight Uh, no, not because of their head.
It won't be because of their country is going to be because they overpaid Ryan Tannehill.
I don't know why the game.
Ryan Tannehill The big money.
I feel like they were kind of forced to just because of the kind of gear that he had.
If the Tennessee Times, when it got Tom Brady, that probably would have been the best thing that would have been further Tennessee Titans as a franchise.
Could you imagine? Yeah.
I mean, imagine Tom Brady.
Yeah, you imagine? Could you imagine Tom Brady with Derrick Henry? Okay, like you got you got a theory running back.
I could run it down your throat, and then you got Brady who could just pick you apart on any fasten gave.
You may not be able to scramble, but he's got He's got the brains of a smart quarterback and you can pick apart what you're doing.
Yeah, easily, easily.
I mean, not even if they could have got that done.
That have been great to see.
I mean, would have been would give, you know, the time to get opportunity.
A zealous Tom Brady.
I think what they could it was, you know, easily.
Franchise tag Tannehill, get him for one year.
They fall in the draft, maybe trade town Hill with a first round draft pick and try to move up and dropped a quarterback are trying for Tank for Trevor.
Get Justin Fields next year.
So I mean, I think that it could have started with the young quarterback with next year.
I mean, you got a young quarterback, Derrick Henry Young A. J.
I mean, they go Tonto.
Yeah, they if they definitely got something there with the intention Times.
But can they get over that nine and seven, huh? That'll be.
That'll be the one thing that want to see now that they finally pay here, they really should have waited to because, you know, if you think about it, it's kind of like if they would have waited and they would have had some more money for next year And maybe they could be in the bidding war for that back Berrick Henry A.
Brown doesn't sound too bad to me a lot about it.
I was library than Ryan Tannehill and, you know, Yeah, in 1980 around.
So I mean, I think they just should just been a little bit more patient.
Anyways, back to what you were saying about a dak Prescott.
Did you see what his brother tweeted out? You say, Hey, said it.
We sent a tweet.
There is a reason I was never a Dallas Cowboys fan growing up or before they drafted death after today.
And who knows how much longer I'll be cheering for them.
Kind of a little over a ****y there.
Do you believe he has a point? Ah, no, I don't know.
Yeah, I mean, it's his brother.
So you know, he's starting some type of message, but, I mean, I just whatever to me, you know, if anything, it can still come back to the Cowboys, and I will be there with him, and he still can't I don't know his better Sand, some really doesn't.
You know, just another person.
Yeah, Yeah, but was definitely, uh, I was a little shocked.
Of what? What his brother said and, you know, obviously got kind.
Like you said, it's his brother.
So you know, he's gonna He's gonna stand up For what? What he truly believe season.
And, you know, it's gonna be interesting to see you see what happens.
We we did discuss about Dak Prescott earlier What? What they probably could have done.
Sure don't different.
Really so amazing to see what happens now.
Hopefully, hopefully Dak Prescott.
I said before, and I'll say it again.
Hopefully he has it.
I wish you nothing but the best.
You never want to wish anyone failure and their contract because you want them to get things.
When you when you hit the NFL.
Your goal is to win Super Bowls and get money.
Because the best a key facts, that's to keep winning.
I am getting big contracts.
But already and moving on.
Another topic that we have is the Miles Garant contract extension.
His contract extension is with five years, $125 million.
If I believe at least 100 million guaranteed, which I believe this one of the most guaranteed of contracts by by a defender.
Do you believe Cleveland made the right choice extending Myles Garrett instead of trying to go after possibly to David class honey and free agency? Uh, yeah, definitely.
I mean, miles get like you said, doing a Super Bowl.
Got have quarterback and the edge rusher.
I think he's gay.
He's one of the dangerous guys.
Topped the reads out five to short.
I mean, you know, they showed him up with the money in some years, so I think they did the right decision.
I mean, they made the right move and, you know, I mean, it started contained a bill.
They already have a talented team there.
So that's no reason that there shouldn't be convened competing.
I'll have to do with credence up.
I think they have been there any, like you guys in to go for a little bit over.
How do you do? I would even think about that.
I personally think I think you may in the right choice extend Myles Kerr.
I mean, lot Le Last time we saw Myles Garrett play, he basically black a bold Mason, Rudolph on the head with the helmet, so that really was a good person there.
But I feel like people made the right choice.
He miles gears one of the best edge rushers in the NFL.
I mean, you look at he's he's very feared, like among offensive line presents and stuff like he could.
He could change the whole game.
You know, but kind of like what you stated earlier.
You know, Cleveland, they have a great team, but they just gotta perform well, you know Kevin Stefanski its first year there? No, Hopefully he could give.
Banker may feel on the right track because when maker was a rookie, he had can pretty solace deaths.
He had the most touchdowns ever by a rookie.
Then a second year, he got a declined a little bit.
You know, most people blame free kitchens for decline, which I believe was one The main factors left.
Now Freddy Kids is gone.
Now it's about Hey, Baker, Mayfield, you got You got to succeed now like and you can clean them.
They got the office like they got.
They got Jarvis like that.
They got currying home with Nick Chubb.
They got David a joke.
Hooper, like they got great, great offense.
They even drafted offensive linemen as well, and they suffer.
I'm Tennessee Titans guard Jack conflict like they are set in stone as an offense.
His contract extension so that he earned my mind, but he definitely earned it.
I know this God.
You know, Cleveland has been in such a sad to see? Yeah.
Yeah, they often come six.
But I mean, with the offense that they have to time, it ends that talented all over the offensive.
They use some of the extra offensive pieces like Graeme Hunt.
