Oh, uh, welcome to a SportsCastr I have at Matt Skirt.
USN working for undrafted towards network is my boy at Caleb.
Iconic USN awards for Unwrapped Force Network.
I am going toe paisa linked 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 tank.
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 of the offseason? Well, actually, well, actually, I heard that, uh, that they almost came to a deal, but it was too late when they did end up, like, almost a green.
So I think, honestly, if anything, they might read to 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 reason 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 out in the cow was probably did that strategically, Get something running, looking cashier on, cashing in time.
I'm so you know, that probably wasn't such pd, uh, organizational plan.
But are you know, I was in that.
They just want to see how it pans out this year.
So if he does his thing this year, are you really getting a little bad? I've been here.
He might wanna go have a four year contract.
What? A three year contract.
I understand because free agents years I'm like that.
You want to be like that we leaving cash in other time.
I'm interested in Teoh. Your GRC.
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 trying 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, that kind of gives the cab was 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 Bans, You know, they just get it veteran minimums instead of that big 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 fall.
And now that Garrett is out now, it's like, all right, Jack, and see what you got you got.
You got a suitable winning head coach Mike McCarthy, who's had a great winning percentage.
He's made the playoffs before his final two years of Green Bay.
He helped them with eight straight playoff appearances.
So Mike McCarthy is that no slash of the 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.
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.
Crikey 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, sign goes from the Rose 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 Dak if they know performance expectations this year, as is mine.
That's hard for they position themselves themselves in that position right there.
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.
So got a single Elliot? Yeah, he haven't down here, but we know where Zika Elliot could be.
And then they got Martin 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 offensive re defensively.
I want to be surprised if they think another step back just because of the key piece that they lost.
Especially Byron Jones departing to Miami now, obviously, they did sign some players like believe they signed Gerald McCoy and, uh, brought back all in Smith after a couple of year hiatus.
So it'll be interesting to see what happens there on the defense is that she lived to Marcus Lawrence and Jalen Smith, both guys who are already paid on that defense with Sean Gourley and vendor.
And so they'll be answering to see what happens there in Dallas.
I personally think douses 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 cops would be another 97 teamer? Well, I have a record.
A question for you, Quick.
How do you feel about their offensive line in here? 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 Tyron Smith.
They still got Zack Barth.
And they still don't lie 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 Frederick.
No, 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 playing there and some other players right yet.
Okay, Well, what was the course that you were gonna say? I'm going to go back to your question about how you say, Do I think the Cowboys are learning something? I really don't know.
To be honest, I think there are seven and nine team to a nine and 17 maybe 10 and six are their offense hits on the news That could be a 13 3 teams.
You really never know.
You know, I they can hit on now.
Really? Be Gates still there, Marcus? Learning, uh, back there.
So, yeah, I think that that's his name.
It's our solid pretty savvy.
So I think given the heart album deep in some time offense is his explosive taken via a top team.
If offense doesn't click, it could not be a topsy.
Yeah, most definitely.
And I also and I also think that there's gonna be some pressure on it. Zico.
Elliott, Just because last time we saw his ego, Ellen, where he was like, top notch, I believe, was 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 know, Elliot, that kind of carry the cowboys and years passed, Are you gonna get the more pass heavy offense with that where they kind of relied on him and and kind of see, see what happens there? I think it would be a balance this year.
To be honest, though, I think I mean, I have the receivers to throw the ball.
They have easy deal.
So I mean, they do have the the Palins.
I think they could balance after the climate.
Why not? If you get played, if you could balance the game out, just confirms oclock put them in most games back. Keeps the defense.
Are I could see them then with a cold.
Yeah, it was definitely.
There are other players that will play on the franchise tag in 2000.
20 of those 11 players include the Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.
Green, who is one of only two players I have not signed their franchise tenures.
Green himself in unique and got way.
They have not signed their franchise tags yet, but others you will still play.
On it is Denver safety Justine Simons on Wyndham Hatreds Guard.
Joe Gleaves, Joe through Knee.
The Washington's Guard Brandon Sheriff.
The charge of side head Hunter.
But to pre look 100 Williams on the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings and Anthony Harris, Baltimore Ravens and Matthew Jude on and possibly one of the, uh, an outstanding defender, Tampa Bay Buccaneers a Shaquille Barrier, 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.
Um, I don't see why they didn't are why they couldn't have I don't know.
I think he should have not extended for sure.
They're gonna I mean, they're gonna meet sometime Brady things.
They gave Brady solid offense.
You're amusing kept.
I mean, defense with its.
OK, I think he'll get the back temper eventually.
Shoutouts and bears part.
And definitely a great today.
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. I shouldn't.
He he had, like, 18 or 19 sacks, some somewhere along those lines, like he had.
He had a breakout year.
I thought for sure they were going to give him at so kind of extension.
But a sometimes what players do is they have that kind of ****.
Like, you know what? I had a great year.
You're not gonna baby.
Ah, my show you up.
I'm a play great again.
And, you know, it's only gonna help shack there 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 edge rusher 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 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 I think you get a high digit number in sacks that then if hell, hell, hell for safekeeping.
He's gonna be a yes, sure.
And if it's not from Tampa, he could get paid some rose.
Yeah, you're right.
Look, both Steph, I believe in NFL teams.
There are two key components that you need an NFL team.
You've got only the quarterback, and you gotta have the edge rusher and shack.
Baron definitely fills a requirement for an education.
So if Denver baby decided to drop the ball in short cache of money, think he deserves then yields is go elsewhere and and succeed to Pentagon.
What? When seemed that is fax, fax? No other Dan.
Definitely big fax. There.
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 GAC Wait, what player are you most surprised with That didn't sign a franchise tech 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 jiggering with the Bangles any longer or you nicking God.
Wait. So me neither.
I'm interested here.
What did you think? I think you said any of these guys need it.
I was I was going to surprise that a J.
Green then assigned the franchise tag.
I thought for sure that a J.
Green with the sign just kind of help hoping Joe Burrows development just because I went when you're a rookie quarterback, you're gonna need any kind any kind of receiving it, get and, uh, at Celester says jaguars need to sign get it? 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.
And I feel like I'm like Tony.
Connie's toe used to fill that unanswered quest.
You know, it's just like 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 objection was just waiting on the right train.
Kind of like the situation that they did What? Jalen Ramsey.
Like what they do in Jena.
Ramzan was they just waited and waited until someone gave them what they wanted.
And the Rams bit the bullet they gave him to first in a second.
So I think they'll be kind of waiting for some team that will be willing to get if, uh, give, like, a second for yet again, I don, uh uh So back on toe he should have signed was just because, like I said before, you gotta help the rookie.
Oh, and, uh, a with disastrous team like the Cincinnati Bangles, because that's what they are.
They're they're disaster.
Uh, the job is gonna help.
And if you can have any top receiver like a J.
Green in there because what injury greens healthy.
He's a top 10 NFO receiver.
When? When he's healthy.
Like like people forget about that because A J.
Green, he's got hurt last couple years, but, well, meaning, what a waste of time he waas help.
You know who was 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 Therefore, I don't know if he's top 10.
I really i e he has the eyes of us.
I mean, he hasn't played yet, so I don't know, give you top 10 I think Let's have a year.
Do you expect from a digger? Well, well, well.
The gun 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's what I personally think I feel like Well, maybe I feel like he's gonna rack ability yard.
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 grounds.
I think they'll be on most short route easy routes eg 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 Bangles that you could expect.
So you don't have a crazy season just because you know a lot, Ross If I asked if he could have a breakout year this year, I mean, maybe give you phone open and get a lot of yards.
Tyler Boyd dynamic receiver is gonna be able to run those nice route and then you know he's gonna be You know, I think possession or should know they need a monitor down there, going one on a J. Green.
You know, regimen run on Agent Gringo with that.
So I mean, I think he Yeah.
See, I think if anything, he'll have Unless you are ours, more touchdowns.
That would be like a good year.
Last yards, Morticia.
I'm going on the opposite side.
I kind of feeling he's gonna have, like, Julio Jones type season where where he's gonna rack up a lot of yards.
But the touchdown, we're gonna come less like I feel like he's gonna set up.
He's gonna set up the Bangles, 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 feel like this is gonna be an important again 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 Teoh.
So the time time.
That's the conference on Ross, cause the last two years she's been pretty much banged 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 notice that, Yeah, I got to see what happens there and now.
And 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.
Um, I mean, I wouldn't I wouldn't be badness Zamboni Patriots with Cam.
Well, 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.
How do you offer the acting A.
Green and Cam Newton on the Cajuns with the every Bill, Bell, Jack, I think that would be dope.
I think that's something you see out of quarantine.
And I think again, I think it has.
How do you determine? I would definitely feel very intrigued seeing Camden with a J green on the new with 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 in the New England Patriots, even or they sign camera before this time, Kim.
I just I really think ended a receiver.
Well, they got Julian Edelman, and then they also got a cure.
Harry and Mohammed Sunu.
So they got, they got, they got some weapons.
Not like B three here.
You gotta give Kim, like, if you give camp a day green.
You're looking every day.
Okay, well, we'll let me the kind of receiving looking receivers that Cam Newton had 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 d j Ward Curtis.
Samuel, Those guys are or really talk much neighbors.
Yeah, I was saying you give him a J.
Green, then it's a little bit different.
Well, yeah, if you give any quarterback a J.
Green, that could make a big difference on on anybody's offense.
You have a point.
Even even if he even if you have a beautiful city Mr Bids, I mean, no party.
Yeah, because they even even Mitch Dubitsky.
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 trusted Teoh.
Torbinski has, uh, uh, Alan ride with me.
Another option is by far better.
Well, I don't know about that.
If I If I choose Well, what 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 to you.
He hasn't been healthy.
I mean, obviously he might my ball.
Yeah, I was, so he might fall out, and hopefully he does.
Because the Chicago Bears, we're gonna need pretty much everything on offense for them to work, just at a chance to have a 500 times seen.
Yeah, 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 care in the Tennessee Titans all the way to the A F C Championship game.
Darren Henry, the Tennessee Times and Derrick Henry 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 did a shocking 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 a little bit change.
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 NMR and the arrests tangled my words, but you could earn the rest in, um, engine.
I think it was just in the middle of this.
I don't play agrees.
I'm glad their country got a I wasn't I wasn't sure if Tennessee was gonna family season.
I thought they were gonna ride Derrick Henry out with the franchise tag, baby, 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 got up, went off.
I say from the wasn't like Week 14 all the way until, like, the division one 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 in kind of like what LeBron did with the 2080 Cleveland Cavaliers, where he's to single handedly carried them to the N before Derrick Henry did with the Tennessee Titans.
Except he made always the championship game.
Yeah, I'm glad he got paid.
I definitely feel like it's a good contract.
Al Qaeda. Glad they did a given.
Christian McCaffrey tight money because I don't.
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 got, like, other things to worry about.
Especially now 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 so being single steam were cancelled in Tennessee Titans.
Uh, I had by myself personally think that Tennessee Times Air gonna do with the Tennessee Titans do.
And with all the high expectations, followed a eight.
No, not because of their head.
It won't be because 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 gonna force to just because of the kind of care that he had.
If the Tennessee Times, when it got Tom Brady, that probably would have been the best thing that would happen further Tennessee Titans as a franchise, I could you imagine? Yeah.
I mean, imagine Tom Brady.
Yeah, you imagine? Could you imagine Tom Brady with Derrick Henry? Okay.
You got a theory running back that could run it down your throat.
And then you got Brady, who could just thank you apart on any fascinating view.
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 out that did not have been great to see.
I mean, would have been Would give, you know the time to get opportunity.
Well, it's Tom Brady.
I think what they couldn't did it was, you know, easily.
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 put it back.
Are trying for 10 for Trevor.
Get Justin Fields next to yourself.
I mean, I think that they could have started with the young quarterback with next year.
I mean, you got a young quarterback, Derrick Henry Young A.
Brown todo 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 will have to see now that they finally paid 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 love it and Ryan Tannehill and you know, Yeah.
Can you nadie around? So I mean, I think they just said 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 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 low bit ****y there.
Did you believe he has a point? Ah, I don't know that.
I mean, it's his brother.
So you know, you starting sums every 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.
Whatever for, 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 cop car, like you said, it's his brother.
So you know, he's gonna He's gonna stand up for what? Like you truly believe he's in.
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. Done different.
Really? So the region 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 thinks that's a gold when you when you hit the NFL and your goal is to win Super Bowls and get money because that's the best to keep back.
Thanks to keep winning.
I am getting big, nice conscious fact already and moving on.
We've been on toe.
Another topic that we have is the Miles Garant contract extension.
His contract extension is with five years, $125 million with, I believe, at least 100 million guaranteed, which I believe this one of the most guaranteed of contracts by by a defender.
Did you believe Cleveland made the right choice extending Myles Garrett instead of trying to go after possibly to David Class honey in free agency? Uh, yeah, definitely.
I mean, miles get, like you said during a Super Bowl.
Got have quarterback in a gesture.
I think he's gay.
He's one of the dangerous guys.
Top reads five short.
I mean, you know that showed him about money in some years.
So I think they did the right decision.
Yeah, I mean, they made the right move, and, you know, I mean, it started contained a bill.
They already have a talented team, so it's no reason if they shouldn't Beacon be competing, I'll have to do with premiums up.
I think they have been there any, like devising to go for a little bit over.
How do you do? I would even think about that.
I personally think I think in the right choice extend miles care.
I mean, what last time we saw models get and play, he basically black a bold Mason, Rudolph on the head with the helmet.
So that really was a good impression 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 fear, Like among offensive blind presents and stuff like he could.
He could change the whole game.
You know what, 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 get bigger.
May feel on the right track, because when Mayfield was a rookie, he had a pretty solid steps.
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 while the main factors.
But 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 and Joe Klein.
Awesome, Hooper, Like they got great, great offense.
They even drafted offensive linemen as well, and they suck.
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.
You know, Cleveland has been such a sad to see Yeah, Yeah, they often come six.
Uh um, but I mean with the offense that they have.
