    I like Bennett to the pack.. nice contract for both sides.. but Bouye at $65mil ($26 guaranteed), that’s a stretch..

      agreed it really depends on if he plays like he did last year if so it’s a steal but if not it could be an albatross

      It’s significantly easier to be a good corner when your dline either plants the opposing qb as soon as he hikes it or he’s running for his life from mercyless and the clown man. Hell with Watt back, my obese ass could play corner for Texans at a high level… I’m a colts fan that is worried for Luck’s life next year…
