If Welker goes to Denver that is a lights out WR core.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

Now I wonder if the Ravens will even try to get Reed. Seems like they are getting rid of all the strong personalities who might (or have) challenge Harbaugh. I mean, Pollard was one of the best defenders on the team and pretty much exemplified what the Ravens Defense is all about.

Damn. I heard conflicting reports but I believe it's now confirmed that Glover Quin has been signed to the Lions.

I was hoping the Texans would be able to hold onto Glover but I guess not. Makes me wonder if they're focusing all their attention on keeping Connor Barwin.

That contract is ridiculous. I guess you get bonus money for flying into piles 5 seconds late.

I like the guy but he's not worth the 3rd biggest safety contract in the league.


Looks like Welker to Denver will probably happen. I had a feeling all year he wouldn't be back in New England.

As a Bucs fan, I agree. They have the cap room so it looks like they are just "big dicking it" right now. I wish they'd spend money on players that would actually, you know, improve the team though.

Rumor Round-Up:

ESPN's Insider claiming that the Packers are looking to sign RB Steven Jackson, but aren't willing to pay the man. haha. Jackson could end up in Atlanta if GB doesn't sign him.

Shonn Greene is being linked to Tennessee right now. Depending on where Jackson signs, Greene could be on the Titans or Packers this season.

I also read that Atlanta had some interest in Ahmad Bradshaw. Not sure how much weight that has though


SJ in Atlanta would be a dangerous situation the other teams in the NFL South. Green Bay better pay the man his money.

Reggie Reggie Bush y'all to the Lions. Effectively ending Javid Best in Detroit if he can ever play again anyway.




I wouldn't use him as an example but that's not true that he was washed up. At the time he was traded to the Vikings he was still an elite talent with the Patriots.

Some teams don't sign or trade for high-dollar, big-name players. Steelers and Packers have pretty much never had players on their team they didn't draft themselves. It's all bout what philosophy your organization follows.


Well considering the Vikings still haven't won a Super Bowl and haven't even been there in over 30 maybe the current philosophy isn't working and they need to pull their heads out of their collective asses...

Goldson is good, don't get me wrong, so he should improve them. But I think a more fair contract would be $35 over 5, 18 guarenteed.

Which brings us right back to my original point, which is that they keep trying to make it look like they're finding the diamond in the rough of the draft every year. They're trying to make Ponder seem elite and he's doing a good job of showing he isn't. I won't be surprised at all if they sit back and do nothing at this point just waiting for the draft to pick up a wide receiver rather than sign a proven winner. They keep doing the same thing over and over at almost every position, don't bother signing a proven star we'll just make one up in the draft. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in the QB position (Favre aside).

Ask yourself, aside from Favre, when's the last time the Vikings signed/traded for an already proven star? (and before someone says Randy Moss from 2 years ago, he was not a proven star 2 years ago, he was a washed out star)

Herschel Walker.

Nice...I really like that move in terms of giving CJ2K some breathers and extending the life of his career. Should give the Titans a decent RB tandem.

Yeah, but all they need him to be is a short yardage/goal line kind of back. I doubt they expect him to be breaking off 30 yard runs. Let him take the punishment. Save your superstar. That's how I look at it.

Yeah, he's fine for a "run him down so our real guy stays fresh" back lol

Still think their coaching is horrible. And that's big in the NFL. More than people realize.

Woodson & Nnamdi also interested in the 49ers.

Nnamdi would fit perfectly than his stint in Philly with that cover 2 nonsense.

I'm not putting too much into this right now, but Ed Reed is going to be the first free agent to visit with the Texans. With Glover Quin now gone, the Texans have enough cap space to sign Reed.

I'll be watching intently when he's here tomorrow.

Where ever Reed goes, it likely won't be Baltimore. I expect Suggs and Ngata to be gone within 3 and 5 years respectively.

Surprised the Pats didn't go after Reed first thing.

Reed seemed tailor-made for New England.

I fully expect the Pats to bring Reed in to talk at least. Also heard they might make a run at Pollard...
