2. Seahawks - CB Eric Wright
3. Browns - DT Gerald McCoy
4. Bucs - K Dave Rayner
5. Cowboys
6. Raiders - CB Rashean Mathis
7. Giants
8. Packers
9. Jets - RT Mike Pollak
10. Colts - CB Marcus Trufant
11. Vikings - DT- Letroy Guion
12. Dolphins - TE C. Miilines
13. Chargers
14. Steelers
15. Chiefs - FB Bryan Young
16. Rams -FS Husain Abdullah
17. Titans - TE Clay Harbor
18. Falcons - DT Tyson Alualu
19. Saints
20. Bears
21. Patriots
22. Eagles - QB Garrett Finnegan
23. Broncos - RE Darnell Dockett
24. Cardinals - WR Daniel Kescoli
25. Redskins
26. Bengals
27. Panthers - WR Curtis Dozier
28. Bills - RG Ramon Foster
29. Texans
30. 49ers - HB Peyton Hillis
31. Lions
32. Ravens - HB Tobias Bray

This group will have until 10:00 AM EST tomorrow. If you're in group 1-3 and you haven't picked yet, you still can.

A few things to note:

1. If your roster isn't full, you don't need to drop a guy. But please post who you pick up.

2. Keep your cap space in mind. These guys do take contracts, so you might not be able to sign the expensive guys without dropping someone.

3. As always, we go by posts in the thread, not who adds them first in game. Once you post in the thread that you added a guy, he's yours.

4. Make sure you don't sign anyone on the restricted list (can someone re-post that?) unless their owner has said they don't want them.

FA and Preseason Advance Schedule

Monday 10:30AM EST: FA Round 1 Group #2
Monday 7:00PM EST: FA Round 1 Group #3
Monday 11:00PM EST: FA Round 1 Group #4 (current phase)
Tuesday 10:00AM EST: FA Round 2 1-16 (switching to two groups of 16)
Tuesday 3:00PM EST: FA Round 2 17-32
Tuesday 7:00PM EST: FA Round 3 17-32 (we'll reverse the order for round 3)
Tuesday 8:00PM EST FA Round 3 1-16
Tuesday 9:00PM EST: Free Agency OPEN (after this, it's free-for-all)
Tuesday 10:30PM EST: Advance to preseason Week 2
Wednesday Night: Advance to preseason Week 3
Friday Afternoon: Advance to preseason Week 4
Saturday Morning: Advance to Regular Season

I realize not all the times are even, but we're trying to get both FA and the preseason done without dragging on too much. Hopefully knowing exactly when your FA group is up will also help people out in scheduling.

its not like u need anymore big weapons mr.superbowl champion

if anyone is interested in Green-Ellis let me know hes on the block and great at closing out games with his 99 carry not much of a speed guy but he can run over people like no other. his contract isnt very expensive either.

looking for a man coverage CB or a hard hitting SS/FS

So would anyone be offended if my rookie RB got some burn beyond the 1st quarter? I plugged him in as my starter and stated publicly that I planned on using him as such, but any real coach would run their rookie HB for at least a half even if they had the edge on the starter job.

I didn't want to put in Greene as my starter just so I could use my rookie the final 3 quarters, but I need some more practice with him. Am I over thinking this one? Haha.

Also, go UConn. Feed finally returned. Though I don't get CBS Sports Network in HD and it makes me sad.

I think if you plan to start him you need to treat him like any other starter and let the game sub him out. I understand what you're saying, but it's a slippery slope and if we allow it we might as well just let everyone play their starters the whole game. If you want to get used to him, that's what practice is for.

The only alternative I can see is to just let people play everyone the whole game. If we do that, it probably means turning injuries back on. But I think it has to be all one or all the other, if we start making exceptions for specific players, where does it stop?

That's fine. That's why I asked. I wish they treated 1st and 2nd year players differently and gave them more time. Stephen Hill isn't leaving the game in the 2nd quarter this offseason, I bet. I'm sure someone like Trent Richardson (though I think he was hurt most of the preseason so maybe Doug Martin is a better example) played beyond the 1st quarter this preseason.

If there's a certain rookie that we want to test out, can we not just place them #2 in the depth chart so we can get more time to try them out? I don't see anything wrong with that...I'm putting my 2 rookie WRs (one of them could very well end up being my #2 WR, but I don't know at this point) at the 4th and 5th spot on the depth chart (same with my 2 rookie CBs) so I can test them out for 3 quarters a game. It's not intended as some sneaky play to get them more XP, I just already know what I'm gonna get from my team last year, so I wanna get 3 quarters of playing time from my rookies.

I know it's not the same cause they'll be playing against the back-ups, but it still beats only 5 minutes of playing time a game (potentially much less depending on if you're on offense or defense).

No doubt. If we had injuries on, I wouldn't mind people playing their starters as long as they want. But since we don't, it just creates too much of an opportunity for people to use these games to mine for XP without risk of injury.

Trust me, I know what you're saying, if you don't get the ball to start the game you could easily be looking at only a few snaps with your first team offense (I had this problem myself). I wish the game handled it more gracefully as well.

Sure. Most rookies aren't starters after all. All of my rookies came in with the subs so they got much more playing time than my starters (albeit with Sanchize throwing to them).

In the end nobody is policing this, we're on the honor system here. Do whatever you feel is right. As long as nobody is abusing things flagrantly, I'm not going to make an issue out of it.

Trade Up for Review:

49ers send:

Mario Manningham 85 ovr 28 yrs old 1 year remaining 4.39M

Redskins send:

4th round pick


Trade Rejected

The committee didn't feel that just a 4th rounder was adequate compensation for Manningham.

When it's my turn to pick up another FA I'll get Craig Dahl SS , Lost him to FA he didn't want to sign back. I doubt anybody will get him.

For the free for all I'll get Delanie Walker TE

These are just back ups I don't think anybody will get them. I won't be at the computer for them. But I don't want to miss filling my roster either.

You won't miss filling your roster. Once we finish round 3 of Free Agency tonight the FA pool will be wide open for the remainder of preseason (at least) so you can sign whoever you want.

That is absolutely, positively, enough. If you can't accept the fair evaluation of your trades, you need to stop making them. Putting up with you pestering the committee about your trades and then grousing if they get rejected has about reached its limit.

Your trade wasn't even. It was rejected. End of story. Either you make a new trade or you move on. Try to do it without bitching and moaning, which every other member of the league seems to manage.

The Bart Scott trade was a completely different situation. The Jets literally had no choice but to trade Scott or be over the cap. The 49ers are in no danger of exceeding the cap. Scott also has a huge contract. The trades are not remotely comparable.

As for your ridiculous insinuations about collusion on the committee, this is your final warning on that. Next time it's a strike.

RE: Bart Scott

There's plenty of factors beyond overall and everyone should know that by now. I don't have Manningham's contract numbers off the top of my head, but I assume it's not comparable. Then there's also the age factor. I was honestly about to cut Bart Scott given his contract and all the holes in my roster, but was able to find a taker. Very different situation.
