We’re getting a pick this year in 2018 and they are getting a pick next year. But with the compensatory picks coming, it’s a solid move IMO

Looks like a 2019 second/third rounder. Not too mad with this one. Hopefully he turns out okay if he has to play.

AND, he’s only owed $705,000 this year. Excellent move

Love it. Great move, Rick. TS isn't great but better than a lot of the trash out there. Got a pick this year to boot.

It better not be a 2nd or third rounder! If it's that we got fleeced.

Right it better be a late round pick. He isn't 2nd or 3rd rounder worthy.

he'd be a good signing although I think Suh would be even better. Probably enough gas left in the tank to make a SB run.
We've reportedly inquired about Richardson.
Him, Suh or Wilkerson was my dream pickup this offseason. The value of a 3 tech is tremendous. We've lacked a pocket disrupter for some time. This defense might be able to hit another level with a guy that needs to be schemed against playing next to LJ.

I'm hoping 5th rounder at the latest. They need to get rid of him with Kirk, Lynch and Brock. It makes zero sense that we would trade a 2nd or a 3rd. Anything greater than a 4th is a mugging.

He has game experience . And the price is right...Maybe Flip can make him a solid backup.

Totally agree! I'm all for a decent, experienced backup but if this isn't a late rounder we got hosed!!!

Wait you think a backup on the last year of their contract is worth a 2nd rounder?

There's no way it was an early pick. Even with us getting a late-rounder back this year. Denver wanted to unload him. I'd guess a 5th at most. Probably would've been lower if we did get one back this year.

That was my prediction at least. Good thing I'm not a GM though.
