I haven't seen this reported on here yet, Shane Lechler signs with Houston. As a Raiders fan, this sucks. Lechler was one of the lone bright spots on the team and along with Seabass was the longest serving Raider. Great move for the Texans as he's still easily one of the best Punters in the league. Lechler also took a big paycut to sign with his hometown team.

Yes, enjoy that dressed sausage.

Any news regarding Asomugha's visit with the Saints? We need a upgrade a corner and if we can replace Robinson with Asomugha, that's already a massive step forward.

Seems as though that he's holding out for the best deal in SF. He's from here and wants to play here.

Ravens exodus!! Flacco took all the money! They have no one to play D!!!!

Seriously great move and contract from the Ravens. Add a DJ Swearinger in the 1st to that secondary, and it looks good. Add in a competent front seven, and 12 picks in the draft. Things aren't as dire as "OMG!!! THEY'LL MISS THE PLAYOFFS" crowd before.

Huff was the worst starter I saw in the NFL last year. He couldn't cover anyone. He was awful.

PFF disagrees(though they aren't 100% accurate):

Quote:
We see many safeties double as slot corners in sub packages but it’s very rare that a safety can make the move to a traditional cornerback role and have success. That’s exactly what Huff did in Week 3 when injuries forced the move to left cornerback. The Pittsburgh Steelers attacked him often (completing eight of the 11 balls thrown his way), but they were mostly of the short variety and Huff’s -3.1 grade in that game stemmed mostly from his three missed tackles.

After the tough first game, Huff continued to show improvement and seemed to make the position switch official when he picked up three passes defensed and an interception (and a +2.3 coverage grade) against the Atlanta Falcons’ wide receiver duo of Roddy White and Julio Jones in Week 6. Huff finished the season at cornerback and graded at +2.1 at his new home. It was an impressive performance as he performed admirably at a position where most safeties would be exploited.

When you add it all up, opponents completed only 53 percent of passes into Huff’s coverage and he finished with nine passes defensed and two interceptions. All of this came two years removed from Huff grading at +17.2 as our No. 2 safety in the league, and one year removed from his strong play when filling in as the team’s slot cornerback. He’s essentially succeeded in three different positions over a three-year period.

Any team looking to sign Huff will likely put him back at his more natural spot at safety, but his experience playing in the slot and on the outside will prove invaluable. In a league that covets versatility, Oakland’s releasing Huff may have vaulted him to the top of the free agent safety rankings.

Lechler was good, isn't really anymore. Thought I read he was bottom 10 in net average.

Raiders signed Tracy Porter. Good news for a team who didn't have jack in the secondary.

"Gang, I'm reporting the best scoop I could ever report: my man FINALLY has his dream back: Falcons have just signed @BrianBanksFREE!!!!"

I remember the Seahawks were taking a look at him, when I lived in Seattle it was all over the news there. Good to see he has a shot at making a NFL team. Good luck to him.

Wednesday night, North Korea declared that it has clearance to launch nuclear missiles at the United States. Johnson heard that information, and placed a specific request on Twitter to North Korea with regard to its target location.

I swear you get more idiots playing WR than every other position combined.

It was very obvious what you were trying to say. But the way it came out was quite funny.
