    Aldon Smith finding new ways to look bad.

    This time, passenger in a car that collided with an undercover police car outside headquarters. Driver cited for DUI. Smith for public intoxication. All this at 8:30 in the morning. Can't see him ever playing again. Needs serious help.

    I posted this before, part of that 2011 draft which may be historic for Defense.

    Sack leaders their first three seasons from that draft:

    Aldon Smith 42
    J.J. Watt 36.5
    Von Miller 35
    Robert Quinn 34.5

    Some contracts from those players in the draft:

    Watt 52,000,000 guaranteed
    Miller 70,000,000 guaranteed
    Quinn 41,000,000 guaranteed
    Dareus 60,000,000 guaranteed
    Sherman 40,000,000 guaranteed
    Peterson 47,000,000 guaranteed
    Aldon Smith 0 guaranteed

    Osweiler and a second-round pick.

    Basically, the Texans are giving the Browns the draft pick and all Cleveland has to do is pay Osweiler's hefty contract.

    I guess this means Houston goes full-bore for Romo?

    Actually, I think it is a bit more complicated and little more Cleveland friendly than it appears on the surface. They have more in salary cap than they can spend. Scheftie said this will go down more like some of the clever NBA trades... story might not be totally written yet..

    So some reports say the Browns will release Osweiler.. and they upgrade their draft potential and don't lose much since they had more money than they could spend..

    Why release him if you already are paying him? I would think he sticks for a year, even as a backup so they could evaluate if he really is a complete bust.

    From January 17, Cowboys Nation:

    A trade could benefit Dallas, Houston, and another team. Let’s use Cleveland for this example.

    Dallas trades Romo to Houston.

    Cleveland agrees to accept Osweiler and his horrific contract in exchange for Houston’s 2017 3rd round draft pick.
    To summarize for each team:

    Dallas – Romo for Houston’s 4th round pick in 2017 plus a conditional pick in 2018 that could be a 1st (unlikely), a 2nd (fairly likely), a 3rd (fairly likely), or a 5th (if either Houston is unsuccessful or Romo is injured).

    Cleveland – Accepts a $16 million salary cap hit in exchange for Osweiler and Houston’s 3rd round pick. Considering Cleveland’s cap space, a 3rd round pick is a nice return to help with their rebuilding. Osweiler would likely backup Cody Kessler, or he could be released in the event that Cleveland drafts another quarterback that it prefers over Osweiler. If kept, Cleveland could redo his contract to remove the years after 2017 in order to obtain a compensatory draft pick if he signs elsewhere in 2018. The collective bargaining agreement contains a minimum amount of cash spending per team (see excerpt in italics below), so Cleveland will have to spend money on players in some way or another.

    Houston – Dumps the huge problem of holding on to Osweiler and his salary liability and gains a potential top ten quarterback for 3rd and 4th round picks in the 2017 draft and a conditional pick in the 2018 draft. If the team or Romo are not successful in 2017, the 2018 pick would only be a 3rd or 5th round pick. Houston would still incur a $9 million cap hit in 2017 due to the acceleration of Osweiler’s signing bonus money that was deferred for cap purposes.

    It's been an honor to hold your balls for the last 6 years, Steven Hauschka. Good luck in Buffalo unless you play us then I hope you suck.

    Bengals let Whitworth and Zeitler walk. I understand letting Whit go, but come on Brown. Open your wallet.

    We don't know the fineprint of that contract, maybe he missed his goal by 6 points and got squat.

    Former Seattle and Denver LT Russell Okung goes to the Chargers on a 4 yr deal for $13.5 APY, $25 million gtd. Okung has no agent, negotiated this deal in 90 minutes and gets to keep it all.

    Aren't Memes intended to make one laugh?

    What was always funny about Romo wasn't that he wasn't any good... Just that he wasn't as good as Cowboy fans were always demanding that we recognize him as being.

    Well... That and dating that blonde bimbo who was confused about what was in those little cans with the mermaid on them.

    There is a prerequisite sense of humor.

    True, when a person doesn't find your jokes funny, it's because they have no sense of humor. Like how that girl isn't into you because she must be a lesbian.

    If you want a popularity contest the account that I copied has 2.8 million likes.

    But everybody knows that Ren has the best sense of humor.

    I can't think of a single time I ever wanted one of those.

    Anyway, I see you didn't laugh at my joke about the lesbian. Obviously, it's because you have no sense of humor...

    Did I reply to it with mundane stats trying to prove something to the contrary?
