All revved up with no place to go

We’ve taken a hard look at the team this offseason. We’ve pushed to find ways to free up enough money to afford to be active in the 2020 NFL Free Agency. We’ve pushed for ways to find cheap alternatives to rebuilding the 2020 offensive line. While we were at it, we pushed for cheap free agents who could make an impact this season.

At the moment, the team appears to have accepted a 2020 season where the team simply bites the bullet, perhaps re-signs left tackle Andrew Whitworth to a short duration contract, and lets the bad contract terms for the highest-paid players flush through in 2020.

Before the coaches are prepared to step towards tomorrow’s stars, they may be looking to see who on the roster will step up.
