I dont know why I feel this way but I feel like Spielman made a mistake right there not trying to unload Barr via trade and signing Kendricks. I'm starting to worry that Barr is going to take precedence over someone like Diggs or Hunter (or even Richardson) and if that's the case, I'm gonna be ticked.

Like I said, we could've landed at worst, a 2nd round pick for Barr, unloaded his $12 million we're paying him this year and sign Kendricks with (some of) that money to a 2-3 year deal that wouldnt cost us what Barr would. And if we did, we dont skip a beat, dont have a hole at SLB (if we were to let Barr walk in FA) and land at least a 2nd round pick. And now have more wiggle room for Diggs, Hunter and possibly Richardson.

Instead, we're either going to re-sign Barr and lose out on 1 or 2 of the "big 3" which kills us

OR

Let Barr walk, gain a max of a 3rd round compensatory pick (practically 4th rounder) and now have a huge hole at SLB. Which will probably force us to draft one early next year.


I guess a hidden possibility is that the Browns let Kendricks walk next offseason, we let Barr walk and then sign Kendricks in free agency. Didnt really think of that one until now. Although we still only gain a 3rd comp. pick for Barr when we couldve gotten more if we traded him now.

Clearly I'm bummed out about this :lol:

I got the feeling Barr is going to jump
no matter what.

I don't think anyone has gone after
