Reminder Twitter Q&A Tonight 8:30ish EST

Just wanted to put out a quick reminder that Ill be online starting sometime between 8:30 and 9:00 (depending on when the wonderful kids are asleep for good) to do NFL Q&A on Twitter, generally discussing contracts and free agency. Last year I did this in the weeks leading up to free agency and people seemed to enjoy it so I’ll answer questions as long as they keep coming or the game ends for the night, whichever comes first. Last week this ended up going on for about 3 hours. I don’t expect anywhere near the same interest this week (I think many people got their main questions out of the way last week) , but if you had any specifics feel free to ask me on Twitter.


If you dont follow me already you can follow me @Jason_OTC or just tweet to that address any questions. I’ll do my best to answer any questions I get but it may take some time if I get bombarded with questions. I’ll retweet the questions with the answer so it goes out on my timeline. Feel free to leave any questions ahead of time in the comments here that might require a little more research or that you would like answered if you can’t be online. Please leave your Twitter handle if you wont be online so I can tweet an answer back directly. I plan on doing the Q&A every Thursday so there is plenty of time before free agency to ask whatever may be on your mind.

In the meantime in the shameless plug department take a look at my picks for the top 10 contracts that are going to give teams salary cap headaches in 2016 over at SN because of the contract structure.

I don’t expect that same

    Jason,

    With the way the cap keeps rising, maybe some of these teams wont be as badly squeezed as if the cap was flat. The cap keeps going up over the last few years and badly managed cap teams are getting away with it.
    If the cap were to flatten for a couple of years, then some of these teams would be hurting far worse.

    Would the Saints try to trade Byrd, along the lines of “Saints eat 2MM of Byrds salary” and the opposing team trades a case of good IPAs.

      I have been thinking the same in regards to the increasing cap. The low end of the salary structure, rookies and veteran minimums, has remained relatively flat, allowing more room to pay the “stars.” And in general the Front Offices are getting better with the cap as well.

      With over $40 mil free next year, the 49ers find themselves with some nice cap space. And they will save another $15 mil if they cut Brooks and Kaepernick. But there won’t be many players available to fill their holes via free agency. The player I think the Niners could really use is Bruce Irvin, (as a 3-4 OLB), but someone is going to pay a lot for him. If this happens, Irvin could be their highest paid player. Although flush with cap space and Gabbert looking to have potential, the 49ers might just hang onto Kaepernick for another season.

      As usual the 49ers have the most players under contract next year. Too bad their 2012, 2013 and 2014 drafts haven’t given them much talent.

    Jason,
    I don’t follow twitter.
    Can Kirk Cousins be extended by the Red Skins, or is it just franchised?

    • He can be extended though Id guess there is a big difference in valuation between the two sides right now
