Felger: So “brown checkmark” chatter. Chatter! Chatter, Just chatter. Alright, Patriots chatter. Okay. I don’t believe this is going to happen, I’m going to dump on my own chatter.
Jim Murray: Stop!
Mazz: Just give it to us!
J-Stew: Just give it to us!
Felger: Bill hates Mac. He wants Lamar Jackson.
J-Stew: Say that again in a nice, clear voice.
Felger: Bill doesn’t like Mac. He’s fed up with Mac, which is not breaking news. We could tell this.
Jim Murray: Second home game against the Saints in his rookie season when he had to take him by the wrist because crying on the sideline.
Felger: And Bill does like Lamar Jackson very much.
Jim Murray: I like Lamar Jackson.
Felger: To the point where he wants him on the team. He’d take him.
Mazz: Would he give up to first round picks for him?
Felger: Okay. My guess, now I’m done with the brown checkmark chatter okay, and this is why I think it’s still a non story, it’s not Bill’s call. Lamar Jackson wants $50 million. You know, I’m making this number up, too, he wants the Deshaun Watson contract, which was, what? Five years $250 million?
Mazz: $230 something I think.
Mazz: Okay. So he wants big, big, big guaranteed money. That’s not Bill’s decision to give it to him. And it’s not even Bill’s decision to give up two first round picks. I’m sorry, it’s not. It’s not Bill’s call and it probably shouldn’t be.The owners going to have the team, the owner and the owner’s family is going to have this team for decades. Bill’s done in two or three years, if not sooner. If he goes five and 12, he has got one year left. So Bill’s, you know, on the 16th hole. So even if Bill wanted to trade two first round picks, I don’t think he has the right to do it. He certainly doesn’t have the right to write a check for five years and $250 million. He doesn’t have that right. It’s not his money. So I’ll stand where I stood, just my opinion which is no way. No way are the Patriots in on Lamar Jackson. Now….as Bill being a football coach, and take all those other things out, Would he want Lamar Jackson? I guess so. That’s the chatter picking up. But then again, I’ll say just dumping on my own speculation of what football coach wouldn’t want Lamar Jackson? Of course you’d want Lamar Jackson.
Mazz: Well, Bill’s had a hard time defending him.
Felger: I mean seriously, 24 of the 32 teams it would constitute a big upgrade if you got Lamar Jackson and you take Lamar Jackson over your guy. Probably two thirds of the league would say Lamar Jackson is an upgrade and will take him. So, of course, Bill likes him and wants him. That doesn’t mean they’re going to pay for him or that Bill has that autonomy to go make a move like that.
