Eagles are picking up the scraps. Don't want to be too good, they need to be able to draft Manziel.

Davis is not as free-spending as Al was. They're going for the full rebuild, so this isn't really surprising.

But, boy will they be bad for the foreseeable future.

Would have been #3 receiver next year. There is no reason to pay him as much as he would have received.

Also tight on cap room, so it isn't surprising.

Eagles signed NT Isaac Sopoaga and S Chung. Not sure if that was thread worthy.

Desmond Bryant has signed with the Browns.

Also:

Citing a source with knowledge of the situation, Profootballtalk.com reports the Buccaneers are Darrelle Revis' likely landing spot if the Jets agree to terms on draft-pick compensation.New York received what was classified as a "good" trade offer for Revis on Monday, and now Tampa Bay has been revealed as the team that offered it.

Vikings have re-signed Jerome Felton and Erin Henderson. Two good players.

Word is Greg Jennings is still hoping for Mike Wallace money. #Vikings aren't playing that game. Maybe when the price comes (way) down.

He's crazy.

And Huff too.

Al Davis picks...gone. Guess they don't just want the fastest guys available.

Really like keep Felton. He was a jackhammer as a lead blocker, been a decade plus since we had a true FB like that.

Henderson is just another guy to me. Decent athlete, two-cent head. Very replaceable. Still, LB depth is terrible, so like the idea of keeping him around. Like the idea of drafting a guy to replace him even better.

Redskins don't need Reggie Bush

We have Alfred Morris and you can just bring up Royster off the bench

He would serve no purpose here

Well, Flacco's new deal is chewing up a lot of their cap space.

That sentence comes off as completely discombobulated.

His cap hit for the next year is 6.8M....


I think people are underestimating the Ravens here. Krueger had a nice season, but his replacement was already on the roster in Courtney Upshaw who they drafted in the 1st last year. Lets not forget Suggs on the other side.

Ellerbe is a loss, but the guy got paid. He had a great 2nd half and a great playoffs, but not enough for them to keep him at that cost imo.

They were already going to draft an ILB in the 1st(Minter is my guess), with how things are shaping up, they'll draft one in the 3rd too.

They also know how to pick up the right veterans(McKinnie for example) and get the most out of them. So there is that.

We're saving cap room so Mark Davis can get a good haircut.

The Raiders were left with all kinds of dead money (pun not intended) from Al's mistakes. Once it's gone the Raiders will go back to spending. Probably the 2014 league year.

Rey Maluaga (sp?) would be a great fit inside for the Ravens.

Ravens have been a factory for churning out quality LBs. Especially inside. They are set with Upshaw and Suggs outside (will need a good 3rd to rotate in still), but wouldn't be worried at all about the inside. They always seem to let productive guys go and have somebody else step right in (Sharper-Hartwell-Scott-McClain-Ellerbe...)

Ravens should just sign Dansby if he comes cheap. They won the Super Bowl with an old and slow ILB starting last season (Lewis). They'll be fine with Suggs-Dansby-McClain-Upshaw.

Greg Jennings apparently wants Wallace money and the Vikings aren't budging. Good for them. Given his age and injury history that's insane.


I wouldn't mind seeing the Vikings take a shot on Arrelious Benn if he can be had for a late round pick. He's reportedly available.

There were a lot of bad contracts handed out today and more to come.

I'm just glad Detroit wasn't one of them..for now

Great market for CB's out there. Patriots better get in on that.

Also the Pats are in on Josh Cribbs with a couple of other teams.

He better not disappoint with this one.

Looks like Ray Lewis, as EVERYONE predicted, has joined ESPN:
