For those of us who cannot read tweets at work, give a summary of the tweet and who was tweeter on twitter..

I feel like I'm on Let's Make a Deal and don't know what's behind door #2.

Bridgewater went for a 6th. No way in hell BB offers nothing more than a 5th if, and only if the Pats are actually interested. Luckily it seems that isn't the case at all.
Jimmy is worth more than Bridgewater who clearly was not able to come back effectively from his devastating knee injury a few years ago.
I think it will take more than a 5th. I think a conditional 3rd is probably about right because it will be based on Jimmy redoing his deal.

$25M for a backup to sit on the bench? JG isn't happy right now. He isn't going to try hard knowing his days are numbered and he'll be with a new team soon.
He's already checked out of SF. If SF trades or releases him they have only a $2.8M cap hit saving them close to $23M in cap space. Any team getting him has his $25M salary as a huge bargaining chip against SF. Shanny2 screwed up by talking. I used to think he was smart but then came 28-3 and now this. The guy is real world dumb as a post.

I really have no idea what San Fran is doing from a comms standpoint. This has been a dumpster fire. They have to move Jimmy. There is no way they pay him $25 mil for this year when they are drafting at #3. They should have moved him already IMO. Take what they could have and moved on. Part of me still thinks they want to keep him but then Shanny's presser the other day. Ugh.

The only reason why I think the Pats make the best offer is because Bill wants him more than any other team. But Bill is also not going to give away the house either. I guess we will know by Sunday or then again, maybe not. LOL

I'm not familiar with the money situation vis-a-vis James G (I could look it up but money talk bores me), but based on the outlandish (read: the price of doing business for any QB with a pulse) contract he signed with SF I don't know if there is enough spare change left hidden in Belichick's couch to pay him. He might actually be better off swallowing his pride and biding his time in SF. He could always take some zoom classes with Alex Guerrero and get his pliability on.

Plus, Dale Arnold is a desperate, miserable man trying to hang on as a fading talk-show host. Should we trust that he actually has a source? He wears sweater vests and plugs weight-loss systems. We aren't talking about Adam Schefter here. All I know about Arnold (I have a source) is that IF he got lucky and the Pats did sign Jimmy then he would crow about it to anybody that would listen, which is not a big number of people.
It's funny posts like this that make me wish we still had the laughing icon.

In the pff mock I was able to trade 15, 120 and 122 for #8 and when I get to the draft a player screen this is what I have for choices at 8, Pitts, Chase, Parsons, Lance.
I choose Lance, who I got 3 times today, twice trading to 8 and one trading to 12. Every time I get Lance the program freezes.

Someones needs to make sure he dont take his WTF secondary pick. Theyre still a lot of good WRs in 2nd round
