I actually highly doubt anything happens to the two pranksters. I doubt a.) Deadspin gives up it's sources and b.) NFL/Bills/Bucs pursue anything serious.

More than anything, the Bills and Bucs front offices' should be incredibly embarrassed. A publicly listed phone number allowed a fan to get in touch with the GM of the Bills. What's more, the GM kept calling back over and over again thinking it was a GM of another NFL franchise. The Bucs' front office went through the same thing. If only I could get Tambo's number and berate him for hours, but that's some lax filters. Yeesh.

Bucs are the likely destination for Revis.

If the 49ers were seriously interested in bringing Goldson back, they would have re-signed him long before he hit the open market. Don't get me wrong; Goldson is a good, sometimes very good, player that the 49ers certainly would have liked to keep, provided it was on their terms. Two years ago, after an absolutely dreadful 2010 season, Goldson drastically over-estimated his value on the free agent market and the 49ers basically told him to go shop himself around in free agency and see if anyone would actually give him the big deal he wanted. Well, he ended up coming back to the 49ers on a 1 year deal. This is obviously a different situation because Goldson is a far superior player than he was back then. He's very good in coverage, a rarity for a big hitter. But he misses way too many tackles (1 every 6.6 attempts, ranks 44th out of 56 qualified safeties according to PFF) and has a habit of whiffing in the most important moments. Goldson has earned a big deal. But there is just no way that the 49ers were (or are) going to hand out a huge contract to a safety. It would be a gigantic waste of money, especially when they have needs at two far more important defensive positions (DL and CB).

Is he still any good? If so, would love to see him come back to Buffalo.

Still probably the best tackling CB there is and is decent enough in coverage. But he's basically strictly a nickle back at this point given his age.

They'll probably restructure both. There has been some grumblings about that.

The Bucs have the picks, capspace and both Revis' college head coach and cornerback coach on staff. I feel strongly its gonna happen but I hope it happens soon so if it falls apart we can still go crazy signing DBs.

EDIT: I also forgot that Jets GM John Idzik worked his way up with the Bucs with Bucs GM Mark Dominik. So many connections.

Upgrade over the guys they currently have but they should have gone after Cook.

I guess Bennett will be cheaper.

Blah

Nothing happens today just like last year

It's largely scheduling visits

ESPN going all out and pre-empting PTI, it's just visits at this point

The real news comes over the course of the next few days

Bennett's a pretty reliable end zone target. Wish the Giants had kept him but it seems they don't want to spend any decent money.

Dashon Goldson first visit is to Tampa Bay. (Usually, first visits this early in FA = Signing there)

Mark Dominik, yet again, gonna be making it rain it this off-season it seems.

Love Winfield, but he has been hurt 2 of the last 3 seasons and is at the end of his career. Maybe he has another season or two left, but not at that amount. A slide to safety may buy him a bit more time.

Wish him the best, but more name than production at this point. Leadership void may be the bigger concern.

Which means the Lions still need a corner because Hall is terrible.



Also, Vikings re-sign Loadholt....
