Season 8, Episode 105 of The Terrible Podcast is now up and in this Friday show, David Todd and I get things started by talking about the proposed kickoff rule changes that will be voted on in late May. We discuss if they will make that particular play more safe and exciting if passed.
The Pittsburgh Steelers placed linebacker Ryan Shazier on the Reserve/PUP list this past week and restructured his 2018 contract year to boot. We discuss why they likely did that restructure as it relates to the 2019 season.
The Steelers entered May with a little more than $5.9 million in salary cap space, so David and I discuss how a good portion of that available space is already earmarked for future costs.
The Atlanta Falcons signed quarterback Matt Ryan to new lucrative contract extension on Thursday, so David and I discuss what it means to that positions market and how we’re likely to see a few other higher-profile quarterbacks follow him with new deals.
I have started to dig deeper into the college tape of new Steelers wide receiver James Washington, the team’s second-round draft pick this year. I share with David some interesting big play numbers related to Washington’s college career along with a few other observations I have made so far related to his play.
As always, several other smaller talking points are mixed in throughout the show that are not highlighted here in this post.
