Chiefs Released Starting OT’s Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher
The Kansas City Chiefs released both of their starting offensive tackles Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher on Thursday morning.
Eric Fisher made his release public on Instagram. The 30-year-old was one of the top left tackles in the NFL in 2020, but he suffered a torn Achilles in the Chiefs’ win over the Bills in the AFC Championship Game.
Schwartz, 31, only appeared in six games for the Chiefs due to a back injury that required offseason surgery. He’s expected to be fully healthy in time for the 2021 season.
There’s a chance the Chiefs consider re-signing both players to more team-friendly contracts, but that appears unlikely. Kansas City saved $18 million against the cap with these two moves.
Tom Brady agrees to contract extension with Bucs.
The move lessens Brady’s coming cap hit in 2021 from the heft $28.38 million that was set to land, and will allow more movement as they attempt to re-sign players like future Hall of Fame tight end Rob Gronkowski, pass-rush dynamo Shaquil Barrett and a list of others, having already locked up linebacker Lavonte David on a two-year deal that itself includes two voidable years. Brady’s extension will reportedly save the Buccaneers upwards of $19 million toward this year’s salary cap, per Adam Schefter of ESPN, the final figure having been set at $182.5 million by the NFL and NFLPA.
Cam Newton re-sign’s with the Patriots with a deal is worth close to $14 million.
Newton spent the 2020 season in New England as Tom Brady’s replacement, and passed for 2,657 yards and eight touchdowns. He also missed a portion of the season after testing positive for COVID-19.
Dak Prescott, Cowboys agree to terms on contract extension with $126M guaranteed
Dak Prescott is now married to the Dallas Cowboys. The two-time Pro Bowl quarterback has agreed to terms on a new contract, sources confirmed to CBS Sports. It was an exhaustive negotiation for both sides that began two years ago and saw a mix of compromises and stalemates that led to a franchise tag being applied in 2020 and a second, more expensive one, looming in 2021. But the team achieved it’s goal of avoiding carving out $37.7 million on a second tag and instead secured Prescott for the long run.
The official cap hit of Prescott’s new deal is to-be-determined once the contract is finalized and the structure is revealed, but it stands to reason the first year will be a lower hit against the Cowboys salary cap than if the tag had been applied, and the numbers are in on it as well — making for an easy preliminary calculation. Prescott stood firm and got his ask of four years, with a maximum value of $160 million with a record $126 million in guaranteed money, sources confirmed to CBS Sports. The total value can ultimately reach upwards of $164 million with escalators.

Jeff Fawver 0:57
Thank you, Santiago. appreciate you having me.
Santiago Leon 1:00
Jeff, first time I see you since the Superbowl tell us where you morning these past month or tell us what’s been happening since
Jeff Fawver 1:10
he’ll tell you I didn’t see that. I didn’t see that comment. Um, yeah, I mean, you know, at the end of the day, if I if I could identify just two things. I mean, obviously, the offensive line issues were gigantic and all year. I mean, a majority of the year since like week five, the Chiefs kind of like made it work with a lot of injuries on the line. And to me, it just felt as though when the when Eric Fisher got hurt and AFC Championship game, it just like the dam broke, right? Like, it’s like you’re holding on by a thread, you’re doing the best you can, you have guys playing out of position, you have guys that should just be playing a game or two, playing a bunch of games. And that injury just seemed to like push them over the edge. You know, they went from it being ugly at times, but being functional to just getting run over. And, you know, I there’s a lot of things went wrong to me. To me if the Chiefs wanted to change the game, when it could have happened was the first quarter you know, you had the play where mccole Hardman was open deep for what more than likely would have been a touchdown. And he stopped, it’s hard to tell if he ran the correct route, or if he just stopped running or he missed the ball, but that would have been a touchdown. And then tyreke Hill drops a touchdown, he normally doesn’t. And, you know, that would have made it that the Chiefs were up 14 to three instead of down 14 to three. And what the Bucs did was smart, you know, they played they they stayed in their heavy sets their base offense, they ran the ball, well, they got gronk involved. And if the Chiefs jump out to a lead, they probably couldn’t do that. You know, to me when the Chiefs missed those opportunities, that really like a lot of games, you don’t worry about that, because they can score so quickly and get back in games. But that game specifically when you can’t protect the quarterback falling behind like that, really, you know, they were just overwhelmed. I mean, you saw you saw you know, even when the Chiefs did their their six man protections, they just missed assignments. There was the play where Shaq Barrett ran through untouched in two chiefs linemen actually hit each other. And I’m not you know, the guys did the best they could a lot of guys were out of position a lot of guys starting that normally would just get spot duty. And then the other thing was the Bucs caught the Chiefs off guard to give the Bucs credit, they completely changed their their coverage on the back end. You know, they went from a very heavy man coverage with single playing single high cover one, and they went very zone heavy. And the Chiefs just never really adjusted. It seemed as though the Chiefs just they weren’t able to adjust to that. That was the story of the game. Those two things to me. Embrace, you know, everyone talks about Brady and right I mean, to some extent, you know, Hey, he’s, he’s the best quarterback ever. And he’s won two Super Bowls after 40 which is just incredible. I mean, most guys get even close to 40 they hit the wall fall off a cliff. So he deserves credit. But really, I thought I thought the Bucs on defense played smart. And the Chiefs didn’t do themselves any favors either.
Santiago Leon 4:26
Do you think the G’s will do those corrections what they need to do to get back to the Super Bowl and perhaps when it does, obviously,
Jeff Fawver 4:34
you know, it’s hard to go to the Super Bowl, this would so if they get back next year, that’d be three years in a row that’s really hard to do. So it’s not a given by any means that they’ll do that. I still think there’ll be a heavy favorite AFC as long as they do something on the offensive line obviously, which obviously I think they will they’re not brain dead. They’ll still be the heavy favorite and the AFC it’s just tough. You know, it’s tough to keep going back year after year after year. Because anyone that wins the Super Bowl every team ever that has ever won the Super Bowl gets some breaks along the way, especially in football, especially with injuries. You know, the the Bucs were one of the healthiest teams in the NFL. Once you got to the playoffs, they actually got guys back in the playoffs, and then a little being a big deal because that I’m gonna pronounce his name a little bit wrong, but that vida vida vejer I mean, that dude is just our he’s a rhinoceros. He came back in the NFC Championship. And it just felt as though when he came back, it added that extra physicality there to their defensive line. But now the chiefs are gonna be fine. Look, it’s kind of like you remember, not too long ago, the Broncos just got annihilated by the Seahawks. And two years later, the Broncos won the Super Bowl. So it’s, I’m not guaranteeing the chiefs, you’re gonna win the Super Bowl next year or anything. But we always overreact to the most recent game. So the Chiefs have won 25 other last 27 games that mahomes has started. But it just so happens the last game they played. You know, they just got crushed. I mean, how do you say they just got killed? So that’s the last visual that everybody has. So everyone’s going to overreact. But the chiefs are gonna be okay, Toby. All right. Do you
Santiago Leon 6:15
think it had anything to do with home field advantage for the Bucs?
Jeff Fawver 6:20
Not really, I mean, it didn’t hurt the Bucs, obviously. But the Chiefs played better on the road. The Chiefs were undefeated on the road this year, you know, you could make an argument they played better on the road than they did at home. Even when you look at the point differential, they seem that they seem to play better on the road. And with that being COVID you know, not having a full stadium. I don’t think home field advantage meant as much this year, during a normal year, if they would have been able to load up the stadium with a bunch of box fans that I might have said that it would make a difference. I think that played a big role.
Santiago Leon 6:55
something to definitely look at, but I had to get your feedback over the simple game. I know how I mean, how upset were you that night? Were you upset? Are you just another game?
Jeff Fawver 7:05
You know, I hate to say this, but like by the second so the the first drive of the second half the cheese went down and they were looking pretty decent but then they bog down and settle for a field goal. And then the Bucs came back and got like the easiest touchdown of their entire season. And for me at that point, that was I don’t want to say I didn’t give up. I’m not saying like give up. But at that point, I was kind of like it’s probably just not their day. Because I mean the Bucs ran like what three or four plays and scored a touchdown. And I mean, a vast majority of the yards were completely uncontested. So I just felt at that point. You know, the second half was just basically sitting there disbelief.
Santiago Leon 7:47
Yeah, quite something. It was as far as I remember. It’s been a month, more than a month so it kind of feels like it was over by half time But anyways, you pray some fans were beg to differ. Let’s segue into the buck still with the bikes Tom Brady agrees to a contract extension does his news about an hour to an hour and a half ago. Um, the move lessons Brady coming coming cap hit in 2021 from the half 28 million that was set to land and will allow more movement as they attempt to resign players like future Hall of Fame Titan Rob gronkowski. pass rush Shaquille Barrett, a analyst of others have an array like that linebacker Levante David on to your deal. That itself includes to what double years. So this deal was to keep the team intact and possibly go to a back to back championships. Jeff, what are your thoughts about Brady resigning?
Jeff Fawver 8:38
Yeah, I mean, it’s a good move for the Bucs. And obviously, it’s a good move for Brady to he’s gonna get a few extra bucks. It probably all blends together at this point, right? At some point, you just have so much money at the it’ll like, blend this together. But no, it’s smart. I mean, look, at the end of the day, the Bucs roster a lot of people before Brady went there said look the Bucs rosters better than we think it’s, you know, it’s it’s not terrible. It’s actually they just need a quarterback. And look, even Tom Brady eventually is going to hit the wall, like no athlete can play forever. You know, nobody plays till they’re 60. With us said
Santiago Leon 9:16
Jeff Fawver 9:17
with that said, I’m done trying to predict when that year is going to be because I thought he was gonna hit the wall last year. And obviously it’s not as Prime anymore. That’s obvious. But it’s not. He’s not holding the team back either. I mean, he makes all the right reads and makes all the right throws. And
Santiago Leon 9:35
yeah, like he did had to go through a procedure to clean up his knees. That’s something that we should look into. Now.
Jeff Fawver 9:42
No, look, Unless Unless they replace his brain. He’s fine. I mean, it’s just, he wasn’t going to move anyway. You know what I mean? It’s not like he runs takes, I mean, he just slides in the pocket just enough. His pocket presence is the best in the league. So yeah, I mean, it’s a good move for the bucks. It gives them an opportunity to try to go back to back. Easier said than done. No, let’s see, you know, the offseason is long. And I feel as though in the NFC, the NFC, the gap was a little bit closer than what it was in the AFC. The AFC unless Josh Allen, like really takes another step. It just feels as though the AFC doesn’t have the quarterback firepower to close that gap with the chiefs. Whereas in the NFC, it feels as though you know, even though the saints falling off could be a big deal. You know, it doesn’t look like the saints are gonna be able to keep it together. buttoned up things
Santiago Leon 10:39
in the NFC. Yeah,
Jeff Fawver 10:40
yeah. Yeah. So I mean, it’ll be hard for both teams to get back. It’s just as hard Russell Wilson,
Santiago Leon 10:45
maybe leaving Seattle, but going to Chicago still and a NFC team.
Jeff Fawver 10:50
Yeah, I mean, we’ll see how that plays. That would definitely I mean, that would change a lot because I think the bears would be similar to what we said about the Bucs last year that the rosters better than what the record shows if they could just get better quarterback play.
Santiago Leon 11:02
And keep in mind Jeff like the Bucs regular season wasn’t that pretty wasn’t that rosy but they came together by playoffs.
Jeff Fawver 11:12
And the game that sticks out to my mind is actually the game they lost. So the Chiefs Tony Romo said after that game, he said I think the chiefs and Bucs are gonna end up playing in the Super Bowl. And the reason he said that is because that was the week that the Bucs really started to transition into that Brady gronkowski offense. And you know, that says a lot about Tom Brady says a lot about Bruce Arians, to be willing to go along with it. Because the box office early in the year just looked awful because they were trying to run all these vertical routes. And that’s not to say Brady can’t throw D but that’s not really his game. And they adjusted the offense over the course of the year. You could make a very sound argument that the books are set up to be better this upcoming year than they were last year.
Santiago Leon 11:52
Tell me about it. And of course for net have a great postseason. This books team excites me. It’s only three hours away North I’m still dolphin fan. Anyways, um, chiefs made some news this week they released starting offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher It was a quite a surprise for a few cheese fans was a huge surprise for NFL fans as well. Um, Jeff, what can we look into this?
Jeff Fawver 12:19
To me, it was it was kind of one of those things where there’s a perfect storm, right? So the salary cap goes down significantly. For one year, it looks like it’s gonna bounce right back with the new TV deals. But and then you combine that with the fact that Eric Fisher tore his Achilles and Michel shorts had a back surgery. And you know, there’s been, so anytime a player misses over 10 weeks with a back injury, the unfortunate reality is 300 pound people with major back injuries. And if you’re out that long, it’s a major back injury. More often, they’re never going to be the same again, not maybe not as a person, but as a football player, they’re going to lose some of their ability. So I look at it and I say, if Eric Fisher doesn’t get hurt, and the AFC Championship, they probably have him finish out his contract. And maybe Mitchell Schwartz is still cut because of the back injury. But look, the harsh reality of the NFL more than any sport, is that your shelf life is largely dependent on avoiding those major injuries once you have them, especially when you’re over 30 both, I believe fishers 30 or 31.
Santiago Leon 13:32
Yes. Yeah. 34 to 31. So yeah,
Jeff Fawver 13:36
yeah. So by the time the season rolls around, I believe it’ll be 31 or 32. So you, that’s kind of not kind of that that’s just a big deal. So you can talk about what ifs all you want, but and then you take the salary cap, you take the injuries. And the last prong of this is it seems universally accepted that this year’s draft class is absolutely loaded at all offensive line. So you put all those things together. And it looks to me as though the Chiefs just saw an opportunity to completely retool their offensive line. And they decided because of the draft because of the salary cap, and because of the injuries, this is the time to do it. And really, yeah, too many times you see teams try to milk a dead cow, right? And then you never reach your peak. So instead of trying to milk the dead, sometimes you just put it out the pasture. And you end up with cheeseburgers too, right? So that’s a good thing. You know, you kill the cow before it dies on its own. So it’s at the end of now. Now the key is, look at the end of the day it comes down to this. The Chiefs have to pick the right guys or make the right free agent mover the right trade whatever it is, they have to identify the right people because what you can’t do is have this leap. You know mahomes is going to be in the league MVP conversation every year. Tyree kill is the most dynamic player in the NFL. And he just turned 27 I believe. So he’s going to be dynamic for a little while yet. So what you can’t do is not take advantage of having that because your offensive line is in shambles. So whatever they do, they have to identify the right people.
Santiago Leon 15:19
The Chase will be saving 18 million against the gap with these two moves. So we’ll see how it goes. Another big news this morning kind of came out of left field in a way Cam Newton resigns with the Patriots with a deal worth close to 14 million. Newton spent the 2020 season in New England is Tom Brady’s replacement. And past about 2600 yards and eight touchdowns. He also missed a portion of the season after testing positive for COVID-19. Jeff, this is an interesting move I kind of thought patrons might have might have a could have moved on past cam because like I didn’t see the results completely what they really wanted. But what does this say about the pages? Do you think they just can’t find another quarterback? And just stay with cam for another season? What are your thoughts?
Jeff Fawver 16:05
best guess is that they maybe they’ll probably grab somebody in the draft. But based on where they’re picking and what they’re hearing. Maybe they don’t feel that they can get a guy that’s a surefire day one starter, which was hard to do. What’s up,
Santiago Leon 16:23
Watson? You mean?
Jeff Fawver 16:25
No, no, I don’t think they’re gonna go after Watson. I, I think they’re gonna try to draft somebody. But maybe they understand that where they’re going to be picking and with the assets they have, they won’t be able to get high, you know, they’re not going to get Trevor Lawrence, they’re probably not going to get Justin fields, you know, someone that many people believe can start pretty directly. So you bring back cam for one year. And you let the young you let the rookie grow behind him, you know, similar to what the Chiefs did with mahomes, behind Alex Smith. And if the rookie ends up developing more quickly than what you thought it’s no big deal to start him over cam. It’s hard to see the Patriots ever being, you know, a foreign 12 team or something like that. I don’t think that’s the case. I also don’t think they’re, you know, a title contender right now, or unless they get a lot of breaks a contender to go deep in the playoffs. So the next, the next biggest focus is you have to find that franchise quarterback. So this to me just seems as though they’re setting up for that you bring in the vet for a one year contract. And you get the rookie to play behind them. And whenever the rookie is ready, he plays
Santiago Leon 17:44
you’re at a cameo in another bridge quarterback, as Jeff is predicting what’s going to happen another big sign in this week. Dak Prescott agrees terms, two terms with the Cowboys on a contract extension with $126 million guaranteed. Jeff, this is the drama The Saga is over, we finally see Dak Prescott tag as a cowboy. What are your thoughts?
Jeff Fawver 18:10
With these huge quarterback deals? A lot of it comes down to you know, how do you continue to build around them? Um, not the most simple tasks. So obviously, you have to draft Well, you have to be creative with your contracts. I like Dak the player? I don’t I’m kind of waiting for his defining moment. Right. I don’t know that he’s had that yet. And maybe he will here shortly. The other thing that I’m curious about is, is recently as what two or three years ago, the Cowboys had this absolutely dominant offensive line. I mean, they were in you know, they were video game good up front for a while. But then Tyrone Smith starts having back issues and then you know, some other injuries to Martin. And then your center I believe their center retired. So they lost not necessarily lost a lot in terms of like number of players. But again, when you have these major, major injuries, you may never be 100% the same as you were. So I like what the Cowboys have weapon wise lamb is a stud. I think Elliot still has some good football left, although, you know running backs do have short shelf life. And I don’t know what they’re gonna do with Gallup. But man, gallop is one of those guys that maybe isn’t as big of a name but every time I every time I watch a cowboys game, it’s like gallops opened again, right. It just seems like he’s always open. So and then Cooper as well. So they have some really good things in place there. The defense seemed to underperform for the amount of talent they had last year so that’ll be a big step for them. But look at the when you have a good quarterback, you have two options. You either pay him or you let him walk in you have to start over. That is good enough that it would be a really tough pill to stop to Swallow to start over. Unless the Cowboys have been so bad last year that they were going to get the number one pick. And they wanted to get the rookie, you know, take Trevor Lawrence have the rookie contract and just move back for a bunch of picks. But that wasn’t in the cards. So I think you go with the guy that’s proven. He’s proven to be pretty good too. I don’t I don’t know if DAX. I don’t know if he’s mahomes. Rogers Brady, those guys. But he’s very, very good. And as long as they surround him with talent, the offense, the offense will be good enough to win games.
Santiago Leon 20:36
Another big quarterback that had a resign obviously, towards the end of his career was Ben Roethlisberger resigned a new contract with Pittsburgh Steelers. He had to take a pay cut. Jeff, what are your thoughts? Was this a good move or we’ll see more of the same of what we saw last season.
Jeff Fawver 20:56
I don’t know that you can win a Super Bowl anymore with Roethlisberger if that’s the ultimate goal. And I will say this the look the Steelers over the last 30 years, maybe even over the last 40 years, one of the absolute best run franchises in any sport. I mean, they always seem to make the right move, do the right thing, make the right decision. And with this, I think you really have to be aggressive in getting whoever’s next whoever’s behind him. Because what the Steelers have now is when they’re healthy, they have a really good defense. But even their defense has some older pieces. Now Joe Hayden isn’t young. To it isn’t young Hayward isn’t young. So they have wat who’s an absolute stud. They have Busch, who I know he’s coming off an ACL. But he’s a stud. Sounds like Dupree is going to hit free agency. So that’s kind of that’s a bigger loss for them. But my point is, what you don’t want to do is have Roethlisberger, drag out the end of his career while your defense gets ancient. And then you’re stuck trying to rebuild your defense and your offense at the same time. So that’s what I think they should be trying to avoid. But, again, it if it was that easy to just go out and find the next guy, they would have done it. But there’s there’s probably seven or eight teams in the NFL that truly love their quarterback situation. With no exceptions. And beyond that, it’s just hard. It’s hard to find the guy good enough to win the Super Bowl.
Santiago Leon 22:35
Interesting enough in the Pennsylvania area, another team that wants their quarterback loves them, but the quarterback doesn’t love them back is the Shawn Watson. the Houston Texans. Coach Callie, the new coach of the Texans reaffirmed yesterday in a press conference he wants to keep him is the quarterback for the Texans. Jeff, are we gonna see scenario where we’ll see the Shawn play or sit out or maybe see him in a new team?
Jeff Fawver 23:04
My best guess is that the Texans stick their heels on the ground and make them and if he wants to sit he sits that the problem becomes this you can never get fair value back. You know, you can only trade three drafts ahead. So think of it this way. Jamal Adams brought two first round picks. And that’s a safety with big hitter, but limited coverage skill. So the most first round picks you can trade for Watson is three. And then you’d have to add in players. I mean, if you’re the Texans, what what can you possibly get back that makes it worth it? You know, I don’t see a scenario. And it has to make sense for both sides. So let’s say you find a team willing to trade their three best players, three first round picks, and three second round picks, just in theory, let’s say that, okay. But then Watson gets to that new team. And he’s stuck in the same scenario that he was in, because now that team just got rid of their three best players. And, and that’s where I see the problem. You just, you can’t fairly compensate for a franchise quarterback that is going to be 26 years old. You can’t do it there. There’s no compensation without completely just annihilating your team. That makes it worth it that you just can’t do it. So at the end of the day, it’s going to make for a fun offseason story and people are going to talk about where he might go where he might not go. I think the Texans are going to hold on to him and if he wants to sit though, though, make them prove it and make him sit.
Santiago Leon 24:46
I’ve been hearing a lot from Miami Sports Radio and they have sources that the dolphins are heavily interested in and to Sean Watson what will happen if that they come true if he did came to Miami like they’ll have to Via trade, I haven’t heard anything about to being involved with those trades. But do you think the possibility or not?
Jeff Fawver 25:07
If he was gonna go anywhere, that would be you know, there was a lot of connecting made with the dolphins being the destination. And I’ll say this, Flores has done a great job there. And their defense has really turned the corner quickly. So they do a lot of good things. Obviously, I think you would have to include too in the trade? I mean, what’s the point of keeping them as a backup? So if it were to happen, I think it’s, I think it would be good for the Texans in that the dolphins are on a few teams. They have multiple first round picks for the next two years because they traded tunsil. So I guess they could trade those picks back. I don’t know how that works. But I think they could, they could trade those picks back. They would be one of the few teams with the firepower. And they’d also be in a position to win. I mean, that would instantly make the dolphins a playoff team for sure. I mean, they almost made the playoffs last year, they would instantly be a playoff team and depending on how some dominoes fall, you know they they could be a contender in the AFC.
Santiago Leon 26:12
I am no front office expert, but definitely, we’ll definitely see what happens. Of course, the textbook came out pretty strong yesterday. So we’ll see how things roll in next few weeks. Anyways, Jeff, anything else before we end the show? before we head into the poll question of the day.
Jeff Fawver 26:29
I think I’m ready to sprint into the weekend.
Santiago Leon 26:32
E to full question of the day is what is your favorite Girl Scout cookies. And the options are thin mints, samoas lemon ups or s’mores s’mores is actually a new flavor this year. So Jeff might have not had that yet.
Jeff Fawver 26:46
I’ve never been known the turned out much of any cookie, but I like the 10 minutes.
Santiago Leon 26:51
10 minutes is my favorite too. And the poll has samoas winning at 60 minutes. 40% and the other ones are zero.
Jeff Fawver 27:01
They’re just wrong.
Santiago Leon 27:04
They’re all pretty good. And yeah,
Jeff Fawver 27:06
yeah. There’s that Girl Scout cookie.
Santiago Leon 27:09
Yeah. And that’s interesting, because I was hearing someone saying that this year or last year, that the amount of cookies they gave is not enough of the price or given even though six $5
Jeff Fawver 27:19
look man when you buy Girl Scout cookies, like some of it’s for the cookie, but some of it you’re just doing to support them to it’s like when you go to a carnival, like that goldfish isn’t worth $7 but it supports the Fire Company. So you’d pay $7 to throw balls at the goldfish, you know,
Santiago Leon 27:33
exactly. There’s always there’s always some funds that goes that it’s needed. It’s appropriate and please support the Girl Scouts. Jeff, what is the best way to reach you to talk to you about offseason was in Kansas City.
Jeff Fawver 27:47
And keep in mind barbecue season is fast approaching. It’s picking up here. It’s getting warm, Pennsylvania, so the best way to follow along is at JT fall over on Twitter.
Santiago Leon 27:57
Jeff, are you gonna be that guy who’s gonna barbecue sauce in the future?
Jeff Fawver 28:02
I don’t know about all that.
I don’t know if I’m built for that. I’m built more to eat it than to sell it.
