    Don't see it happening. That would mean the Jets are paying 2 quarterbacks almost 10 mill each when neither is worth half that.

    so i guess it would be a case of who is closer to being worth the 10 mil that neither deserve?

    Sorry, Cards win the patheticness tournament. And before one of you brings up the Chiefs or Lions, here's my response: blow me.
    Well they released Kolb at least, so now you're down to Hoyer and Stanton apparently. Not convinced on either tbh. Any chance Cards go after Geno Smith?

    I mean, they have to draft a QB now. Neither of those guys they have are starters, just cheap replacements. There's no way a brand new head coach walks into an organization and says "I think we should rely on Drew Stanton" for his first season.

    Yeah they kind of have to now. I assume they're high enough on the board to snag him. I still don't think he's worth it though. Best QB in the draft doesn't mean much this year.

    Ravens TE Dennis Pitta is a RFA, but seems to be getting a lot of interest from multiple teams.

    Usually, this wouldn't bother me since RFA's rarely sign w/ other teams, but this looks like it could possibly happen. Any team putting out an offer sheet on Pitta would end up losing a 2nd round pick. The Ravens also have the right to match the deal, but they're cash strapped as it is. It's the whole reason they gave him a 2nd round tender instead of a 1st round tender; it saved them about $856K. If a team makes him a reasonable offer and frontloads year 1, there's a very realistic possibility that the Ravens could be losing another player.

    Just heard on the radio ...

    Apparently, the Bronco's wanted Elvis Dumervil (sp?) to restructure his deal. He eventually relented and took a small paycut.

    What's the problem you say?


    Denver had a 2pm deadline (I'm assuming on some type of roster bonus) and Dumervil's agent/people didn't fax the needed info/paperwork over to the Bronco's until 2:07. Dumervil was apparently released and is now a FA. lol

    Again, I heard this on the radio. Trying to find some links on this now. If this is true, that's hilarious.

    EDIT: Here we go. Anyone need a pass rusher?

    That's hilarious(ly bad.) I just finished reading an article (on NFL.com no less,) about him having taken a pay-cut and them coming to an agreement. Bet Freeney just got a new travel destination.

    Ravens and LB James Harrison continue to show mutual interest.

    Really hoping this one isn't true. Very few players that truly would never want to see in a Ravens uniform and Harrison is at the top of that list.

    the Dumervil cut makes me wish the Saints had the cap space, but for some reason they restructured the contracts of underachieving veterans who don't fit the scheme, instead of releasing them

    Hilarious what happened with Dumervil. Bronco's got Welker, fine, let the Pats get Dumervil (No chance in hell that happens btw, I foresee the Bronco's signing him a.s.a.p.)

    ESPN says the Broncos probably won't resign him because he still costs the Broncos $5m in cap space even after cutting him. He'd have to take a $3 mill contract at the most for him to be worth what he agreed to with the Broncos, but I think he can get way more than that in NE.

    Wow. Wouldn't that just be one of THE biggest gaffes ever in personnel management, both from the agent and the Bronco's? Although, if Dumervil comes out ahead, monetairy, I won't say it's not done on purpose.

    Yeah that's what I'm thinking. That agent probly tried to pull a fast one on the Broncos but Elway wasn't trying to take that shit so he cut him.

    and Keller to the Dolphins, they seem serious, if nothing else they at least have cemented themselves as the second best team in the AFC East, and the way other AFC teams are declining there might be a window of opportunity there

    Is it just me, and I don't really pay that much attention to free agency and pre-season, or is there a lot more big names moving this year than in recent memory?

    Last year it seemed like teams just resigned their big guys.

    Wow, Jennings to the Vikings. That's gotta sting in Green Bay.

    Green Bay pretty much made no bones about it during the season they werent keeping Jennings. Itll be interesting to see if he ends up hurting them, even with Minnesota's playoff surge I still find it hard to buy them as a real threat to any of the better NFC teams.

    New CBA.

    It doesn't shock me that a lot of the teams spending money are the teams that have either been middle-of-the-pack or spending-next-to-nothing in previous seasons. Now, with the new CBA, these teams need to get up to the cap floor (75% of the cap?)

    For example, I thought I saw an article in regards to Jake Long leaving Minn. without a contract. Said that him returning to the Dolphins didn't seem out of the question. Even with all of their big moves, they were around $15 Mil.+ under the cap. (That may have been before Gibson signed) Looks like CB Brent Grimes is next to visit Miami.

    No way. Jennings only played 1/2 the games the last two years and he's almost 30. Getting old by NFL standards. I think they just drove the price up the best they could to make the Vikings pay more. I don't think there was any real intention to sign him after the year ended. Jennings wanted out and GB didn't want to pay for a receiver past his prime. Thanks for the memories but change is always happening in the NFL. Got to roll with it or get left behind.


    Go Pack !!!
