A-ROB is no Jimmy Smith, not even close

^Was really hoping we'd retain A-Rob, but I can totally see both sides.

$16 million is a lot for a guy coming off an injury, who might be a chemistry problem for the team, who didn't seem like he was giving full effort in his last healthy season.

I get the apprehension in giving a mega deal to a guy coming off an ACL.

But I think the franchise tag is ideal.

I am surprised he may be allowed to leave and them getting nothing in return.

I would trade him for a high second round pick if we could get one.

After today he will no longer be under contract with the Jags, so I don't think they even have that option.

I just don't believe that they won't tag him until the deadline rolls around this afternoon. Maybe I am naive, but I am thinking/hoping it's a ruse.

As for trading for a "high second round pick," nobody is gonna give us that lol. If Robinson was under contract and underpaid then it might be possible though still doubtful coming off the ACL, but if a team still has to sign him to a monster contract they aren't giving up picks.

Perhaps if we tag him like I am hoping, there could be a chance for a trade but not a high round.

NFL Network reporting he won't be tagged.

Seems like an extremely dumb move.

We will not tag him.  Too expensive.  If we did, he would be the second or third highest WR in the league.  He is not the second or third best WR in the league.  Just doesn't make sense to do it.  He got paid 1.1 million last year.  Do you think he is worth 16.5 million this year? 

That said.  I hope we keep him with a contract.

If we tagged, he would be tied with Jarvis Landry for the third-highest paid WR (Antonio Brown and Deandre Hopkins are 1 and 2).  I do not think he is worth 16.5/year. Probably imo worth 10-12M on a long term contract factoring in the risk in case he doesn't develop/recover fully. IMO it would make sense to give him more like 13/14M if the guarantee is less, like a 2-yr deal. Hence why I'd also be willing to do the tag at 16.2M. It only "hurts" us for one year and gives a chance to wait and see how he returns from injury.

Of course this is not my money and I'm just speaking as it pertains to the cap, assuming that Khan has told the FO that money is no object as long as the cap is healthy.

Just heard on Miami radio that Robinson is headed to the Bears. 3 years, $42 million.

Rumors were Robinson was frustrated playing with Bortles.

Now, he'll be catching passes from...Trubisky?

Spending $13 million a year on an elite guard is a better move than spending $14 million a year on a good receiver.

Sammy Watkins just got $16 million (!) a year from Kansas City.

This is true! Analytics show that the easiest positions to replace production are at WR & RB.

Posluszny announced his retirement.  He gave distinguished service and effort to some really poor teams in past years.  Too bad we couldn't see him off with a Super Bowl trip.
