  • Heard of talks of the NFL thinking of adding another team (Fantasy Expansion Draft)

    If I remember correctly, when the Texans came into the league we had to put 5? of our players into this expansion draft. I think the benefit for each team was that the players contract would not count against them or the team would not penalized ...something like that.

    Anyway if you had to choose 5 players to give up from our Superbowl champion team (Lets just assume everyone from the team is under contract) who would it be?

    5) Rocky Bernard
    4) Domenik Hixon
    3) DJ Ware
    2) K Mac


    and #1...Will Blackmon

    I'd ship Travis Beckham out :-)

      I heard about that too. Goodell said that the NFL wants a team in LA, but doesn't want a team to move and if they were to expand they would expand by two in order to keep an even number of teams. But then a few days later, he backtracked and said that the NFL has no plans to expand in the near future. He kind of contradicted himself: we want a team in LA but we don't want any existing teams to move to LA and we don't want to add a new team(s).

        Well for the sake of argument, Hixon would not be eligible due to IR, and KMac wouldn't due to FA. But first things first, anyone who is going to get cut anyway and will count against the salary cap, like Diehl. They probably won't get selected due to their contract, but it's a win-win either way.

          It didnt work that way, lol.

          Otherwise every team would just give up their worst players.

          I think it was more like every team could protect 7 of their players, and the expansion team could poach anyone else it wanted.

            The city that deserves the expansion team the most if I had a say would be San Antonio. They would get great crowds too. In fact, I would not be shocked if the Raiders moved to SACRAMENTO. Yes I said it. Sacramento guarantees them a new stadium and they ship out there and still get to keep their old fan base (only a two hour commute from Oakland I know I'd drive 2 hours to see the Gmen.)

                So at least follow the rules then.

                  There was also a lot of talk about a new team in London 3 or 4 years ago, I guess that has cooled off too.

                      Um no. So a new team would be able to take Eli, Nicks, Cruz, Tuck, JPP, Snee from us?

                      No. Learn the rules.

                          yea yea. Still doesn't make his post right. Protecting 7 players means nothing.

                          I was using those players by saying they could essentially take one away from us.

                          Eli, Nicks, Cruz, Tuck, JPP, Kiwi, Osi, Webster, Prince, boley, Bradshaw, Snee.

                          So we could lose 5 of those players?

                          Teams have more than 7 good players.


                          No.

                            the existing teams did not really "protect' any players at all.
                            each team was required to "expose" 5 players of their choice , excluding ; kickers , 10 year vets and free agents.

                            its all semantics , if you want a "protected" number , then you're talkin' 48 plus the practice squad.

                              Yeah I knew there were players that were "exposed" to the draft.

                              Jessie Armstead was put into the expansion draft and the Texans passed on him...from what I remember
