His dead cap is not manageable until 2024. He’s here for at least one more year. I just wish we would insert this guy more into our gameplan. He’s too good and he’s making too much money to be on the sideline
Actually according to over the cap, we actually save $50,000 on the cap if we trade him early next year. Cutting him would cost $9,850,000 on our cap.

Taysom is a 32 year old fullback QB. Really good/neat player but I’d be surprised if he follows the typical QB career trajectory

I don’t understand Pete’s reluctance to use Taysom as a pass catcher. If he’s 1on1 with a LB, have him run a slant or drag to use his speed to get seperation and gain yards. Or a TE screen. Anything to get the ball in his hands in space and let him break a tackle and get some RAC.

The market is certainly trending towards dual-threat QBs like TH (Allen, Jackson, Hurts, Fields) but he had a decent shot and didn't make a ton of noise around it. He's also getting older so I'm not sure he's got a lot of opportunities left as QB1.

Either way, I'd take TH at 10M/year without thinking twice, no matter which position he's playing. That's a great player right there even if he's not used as QB1
His shot was compromised with a serious hand injury to his throwing hand. Yet he still has a good won-loss record. He hasn’t been given a shot when not injured. Now would be the time.

Well you see, the problem is we haven't been running slants with anyone, lol. Even in this winning game, I think we had one slant while I was watching. I wish we would run more of them with a lot more people, but for some reason they have dalton do everything to the edges. I don't really get it. The only somewhat middle field throws are zone curls and stuff. oh well
