Your podcast isn't updating in the "All Shows" or "Pack A Day" section on CHTV. I would've told you sooner, but Andy Herman blocked me on Twitter for only god knows why.

No, if Mahommes signs before Dak, whatever Mahommes gets will be the ceiling for Dak, not the starting point.

TE: only savings would be Marcedes ($640K). GB could save $140K and $65K by releasing Tonyan and Baylis, respectively, and replacing them with rookie minimum guys. Highly unlikely to save $ here.

STs: $140K if Ervin is released. Have to find a PR and gadget guy if that's all he can be.

RBs: Jamaal ($1.5M) is highly unlikely. Dexter costs $20K to replace due to signing bonus.

DL: Clark ($7.69M) isn't going anywhere. He isn't going to get $21M AAV. Lowry and Keke cost money to cut or trade. M. Adams ($230K) is possible. Lancaster ($140K) is not impossible but unlikely to get cut.

QB: AR at the earliest might be traded June of 2021, but far more likely later. March or June of 2022 or 2023 seem possible IF Love looks good. Boyle ($140K) is more about roster spots than money. What does LaFleur think about Love playing in 2020 if AR gets injured (by which I mean possibly damaging his confidence by playing before he is ready).

WR: Adams has steady cap hits. Funchess (655K) would have to look awful to not make the team. MVS ($85K), ESB ($35K), Kumerow ($140K) and Lazard ($65K) and Shepherd ($65K), Begelton ($0) don't constitute enough money for cuts and trades to be anything other than merit based.

DB: Jaire ($2.2M) and Amos ($390K) are going nowhere. King ($820K) is safe. Josh Jackson costs $219K to release. Savage costs $8M to trade/waive. Sullivan, Redmond ($140K each) and Greene ($65K) seem safe to me. Hollman costs a little to waive.

LB: Z, Preston and Gary all cost millions to release. Kirksey costs $485K to waive and replace. Tim Williams ($265K) has to earn it. Oren Burks still costs money to waive and replace but $40K means it's possible he could be gone. Greg Roberts ($65K) is a merit issue.

OL: Bakh ($10.89M), Wagner ($600K) Lindsey ($7.9M), Turner (>-$2M) and probably Turner (-$2.16M) aren't going anywhere. Taylor saves $4.08M minus replacement player if released/traded. Patrick saves $440K, but he couldn't run block last year. Madison cost $17K to release and Nijman saves $65K. Light saves $140K. [I agree that the Packers have big time money decisions to make in 2021 on Bakh, Linsley, and even Turner would have $3.55M in cap savings, though that includes a lot of dead money as well.]

H-Back: Deguara and Sternberger, the only two apparent candidates, seem safe. [Put in just to kid CW!]

Gute will figure it out. How many other teams have two first round QB’s locked up for the next 4 years? Rookie contracts and salary caps be damned. The experts all saying we had an awful draft means nothing. The rest of the league aren’t smart gunslingers like Gute.
