  • Declined 5th year options

    Teams have declined to pick up the 5th year options of the following players making them UFA's after the end of this coming season. A team can still try to work out a long term deal in the meantime, but for most of these guys it's probably unlikely.

    Bills QB EJ Manuel..Pretty much a no-brainer
    Broncos DT Sylvester Williams
    Jags OT Luke Joeckel..Damn, wasn't he just the 2nd overall pick in the draft a few years ago?!
    Jets CB Dee Milliner..Shit, remember when a lot of us were screaming his name a few years back thinking he was gonna be a stud?!
    Pats G Jonathan Cooper..Same with Cooper...
    Raiders CB DJ Hayden...Ditto with Hayden...
    Titans G Chance Warmack..and Warmack...
    Vikes WR Cordarrelle Patterson..Ditto again...
    Steelers LB Jarvis Jones..and again...

    There's some pretty big names on this list, but at least so far a list of unrealized potential..Be interesting to see how this all goes down in '17!!!

      No matter how much evaluation you do on a player it goes to show that the draft is a crap shoot.

          I was absolutely dying for us to land DJ Hayden when he came out,, thought he was destined to be the next great Corner...

            thats who the raiders chose with the pick we gave them when we traded up for dion jordan. it comforting to at least know that he has turned out to be a bust as well.

            I bolded those who were TOP 10. The 2013 Draft was rough...

            Bills QB EJ Manuel - 2013 - 1:16 overall
            Broncos DT Sylvester Williams - 2013 - 1:28 overall
            Jags OT Luke Joeckel - 2013 - 1:2 overall
            Jets CB Dee Milliner - 2013 - 1:9 overall
            Pats G Jonathan Cooper - 2013 - 1:7 overall

            Raiders CB DJ Hayden - 2013 - 1:12 overall
            Titans G Chance Warmack - 2013 - 1:10 overall
            Vikes WR Cordarrelle Patterson - 2013 - 1:29 overall
            Steelers LB Jarvis Jones - 2013 - 1:17 overall

            It's odd how many of these were ''can't miss'' players coming out. Too bad we can't go back to the old forum and read some of the old mocks and arguments... lol...

            I do know that this is the first draft that we've used a lot of the Analytics and SPARQ percentages to help determine our picks. Howard's SPARQ was almost 85... that's really good. Hope it translates well onto the field this year. I think Lucas actually had the highest SPARQ, which is a scoring rating system (Speed, Power, Agility, Reaction and Quickness). Of course none if it matters if you don't produce on the field. Results trump all.

            Wonder if we'll bring any of these guys in? Is Jarvis Jones healthy?

              Yet many are going ape shit over who was drafted and who wasn't drafted this year. Not one of those guys have lived up to the draft status which is why the 5th year option isn't being picked up.

                The Packers didn't pick up LB Datone Jones 5th year option as well..Also, add Ravens Safety Matt Elam to the list..Another one i think we all wanted...

                Not sure, but it's a long way off..all of these guys are signed through this coming season..I read where the Steelers may still look to sign Jones to a long term contract.

                Btw, the only reason Dion Jordan isn't on this list is because of his suspension, the decision on whether to keep him or not doesn't have to be mae 'til next year..

                  Yeah, keep waiting to hear something on Jordan one way or the other. Tired of the drama with him.
