Anything left in the tank?
Played in 5 games combined the last two seasons

Too old to pay good money as I doubt he plays for peanuts.

It comes down to $$$
Might add to the rumors

that they're going after Williams.

Combined with the old "You sign 1 of ours,we sign 1 of yours" mentality.
Definite cap: 1 mediocre season (2018) and 2 years injured (2019,2020)

I don’t think this justifies further discussion. Call me in August if you are still looking for a job.
No thank you

Just turned 32 and his best football is behind him

Was super underrated in his prime, but nowhere near the talent of Williams anymore and I’d even take Tomlinson over him if the money was equal
If the cap stays at the current reported number

there are going to be a TON of guys like this available in the near future.

I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of "named" vets working on one year deals this upcoming season.
Tomlinsons replacement

DG is rock hahd
Sammo85 : 2/16/2021 12:49 pm : link
a no-risk incentive laden one year deal, sure?

Not with any kind of cap eating limitation to address other moves.

He'd be a low-risk/incentive signing if we get desperate to some degree for depth and Tomlinson leaves.

But I don't think the world is on fire if Tomlinson goes and we keep Williams at least. Still have Lawrence, Johnson brought back too as backup and can add a cheap run stuffing vet/draft pick (and BJ Hill still has 1 more year on rookie deal).

It's not barren at DT.

2019 season
On October 1, 2019, Short was placed on injured reserve with a partially torn rotator cuff.

2020 season
On October 15, 2020, Short was placed on injured reserve after undergoing season-ending shoulder surgery.

If he's finally healthy, even money Gettleman picks him up to help compensate for letting Dalvin Tomlinson walk.

Barely played the final two years. He isn't going to get much of a big deal or even years. Same has been for guys like Jason Verrett and Thomas Davis in recent years. Plus he's 32. Probably from history, he has Bills written all over him for depth. They added Vernon Butler and Mario Addison last year.

Tomlinson will want $12M. This has nothing to do with him. And truthfully, he doesn't get to the QB enough for that coin. Judge loves him though.
He'll be sitting by the phone......

waiting for a call into next season if he's asking for more than vet minimum.
