Late getting around to this. Been busy travelling for work. Not much to report, other than Jimmy G seemingly waiting till the worst possible moment to announce he’s having shoulder surgery. People seem to be freaking out about it, saying we should simply cut him, but I don’t think this will affect his worth much. He is what he is. He’s a charismatic Alex Smith with a pinch of Brett Favre wildness to him.
He will be a stabilizing force for a team developing a young gun (NYJ), or simply a guy who can steer a strong defensive team to the playoffs (Pitts, Denver, Wash). I don’t even think the Jets are leaning that way, but it is possible given the Robert Saleh connection. Pretty sure he doesn’t want to be a backup, but it’ll be interesting to see where he goes and what he (and we) gets.
In other news, we are looking at Trey Lance’s receiving buddy Christian Watson. Big, fast, and tall, he may have played himself out of our reach. But we have a shit load of low picks, it would be worth our while to trade those for a shot at him. He had a solid Senior Bowl, and he is a bona fide deep threat with his size and speed. 6’4″ 205, 4.36 40 time.
