    I’m quite surprised by some of the negativity from Jags fans surrounding Foles’ arrival, it’s almost like they’ve forgotten how bad Bortles was last season.
    I'm not a huge fan of it at the price we've paid. Nobody else was bidding so why pay over the odds? I get the whole 'we want to show he's our guy' and 'we want the locker room to respect him' but it still seems excessive.

    I wouldn't have hated having Tyrod for a year and drafting a rookie but we're only going to hold onto this defence for so long, so makes sense to get a guy who can make us win now.

      Interesting

      I see the Browns are taking Earl Thomas now too
      Ravens - 4yr deal worth 55m according to Schefter... if over his injury, best FS in the league by far

      I would love to see Duke in a more prominent role, & have said so right from his rookie year. Such a talented ball player, & Miami U's All Time leading rusher when drafted, but hes not getting the reps, or recognition, he deserves IMO. I did read the other day that he had deleted a load of Browns stuff from his social media - whether this is true or not I dont know - but it wouldn't surprise me to see him used as trade bait over the next few days...unfortunately. As much as I hate to say it, he would probably be better off out of there...if he does stay in Cleveland he will have yet another frustrating season I reckon.
      Interesting, I’ve followed his career since watching live at the Sun Life Stadium, think he went for 4 td’s that night. He had a nice little spell last season and you couldn’t blame him for wanting more touches.
      What?

      Fair points, personally I’m delighted with Foles, even if he turns out to be an average 15th-20th level QB it’ll still be a huge upgrade as Blake genuinely couldn’t throw the ball, just think about that for a sec sure Foles has been paid, but it’s not wild money, hopefully the front office know what they’re doing We desperately need to bolster the o-line now, Robinson-Norwell-Linder is fine, Cann has re-signed, definitely need a new RT as Parnell has gone and it doesn’t look like Richardson is up to it. Need to get some weapons for Foles too, a TE is an absolute must, we’re very light at RB too. We don’t have much wiggle room left in Free Agency so the draft is huge, I’m not sure I trust Caldwell to get it right sadly, he’s had 1 good draft class in 5 years
      What?

      He was fine in Buffalo, I won't hold playing under Hue against him.

      I don't trust the front office, especially Caldwell! lol

      Hopefully they can surprise us though.

      With Hunt receiving an 8 game suspension today, Im hoping Duke will stick around now. One of the most undervalued, and criminally underused backs in the league IMO.

      I know a few Giants fans who are not happy he is now part of the Dawg Pound. I think it's a good move, he gets out of the Giants and their misplaced loyalty to Manning. They've had 8 wins in the last 33 games and he joins a club on the up led by Baker Mayfield with a very competent GM, John Dorsey. Also Jarvis Landry is OBJ's best mate.

      Beckham can come over as bit of a knob, but I think some of that is borne out of frustration with the rest of his team. Make no mistake, on his day he is a great wide receiver.
      Giants had better stats without OBJ in recent times.

      Good move for the Giants IMO and immediately replace Landon Collins, improve the offensive line, not to mention the draft picks which they may use to either to recruit or trade.

      Was disappointed at first but actually on reflection quite pleased.

      I suspect you'll hold onto him until nearer trade deadline.
