The Keenum signing I believe is for 2/36M (or around that).
I actually think it's a solid move for both Denver and Minnesota. I don't think Denver had the $$$ to sign Cousins for 28M/Year AND fill other holes, but Keenum is no scrub either. Meanwhile, MIN payed about 10M/Year more for an upgrade in Cousins, and to me, MIN is now one of the favorites to win it all next year.
Drew Brees at 2/50M seems smart for both sides. Guessing a Rodgers extension will come soon as well (or at least sometime this month).
Feels like if there are "big" signings by the Pats it will be them re-signing Nate Solder and/or Brandin Cooks, and news that Gronk won't retire.
In other words, improvement will have to come from internal development, not free agency or trades.
But that's not surprising, I guess.
Feels like after last season the Pats almost need to entirely rebuild their defensive and offensive line, but Brady doesn't have enough years left for them to go through another rebuild of the infrastructure (which is what happened between ~2010 and 2014).
I thought the Patriots already picked up Brandin Cooks' option for next season (or unless you mean working on a long term extension)? And as much as I'd love to keep Solder, it looks like the Browns are after him and they have a boatload of $$$. BB will have to get creative in working a contract to keep Solder, but I honestly wouldn't bet on it. Still hope we keep him though.
What this team truly needs IMHO is a pass rush and a solid CB with Butler leaving. Sucks we didn't even go after Sherman, but I'm guessing the Pats will look at the Draft to get an OT and a CB. Will be interesting to see if they can somehow add another "high profile" pass rusher, or do they just re-sign Harrison, hope Hightower is healthy and roll from there next year (along with some of the current young guys like Flowers, Roberts, etc.).
If we don't keep Solder though, I imagine at least one of Lewis/Burkhead returns, or maybe both if they cut Gillislee?
