Is it just me or have GM's across the league gotten ultra aggressive?

It's not just you. If their team is close, they're going for it.

GMs have always been this aggressive, it’s just the salary cap going up

Maybe you're right.

Yeah. I think they saw how well it worked for the Eagles and Jaguars last year and are trying to emulate it.

This. As long as you have an owner willing to spend to push the team to the very limit of the cap, unless you are trying to sign/secure a huge name FA you can work around it pretty easily.

 

We know who we want to pay years down the line, there is no way any half competent GM can't figure it out. The only time the cap gets tricky is if you realize you are so close to a superbowl and the missing piece or two hit FA.... That, or you have an owner that simply doesn't want to max the cap (many owners).

I really wish we do more short term deals or front loaded contracts. We could get a guy like suh or Calais Campbell last year on a front loaded deal and have the option to free that cap up before we actually have to pay Mariota.
