I am happy the Cowboys are being quiet in free Agency. I believe only 1 player was signed. Rebuilding happens in the draft, not free agency. Though we made out last year with Carr.

They pretty much always build through the draft. Last year was really the first time in a long time that they went and spent money on FA's. I think I read on ESPNDallas.com that they signed 7 players last year and in the five years before that they had only signed 6 FA's.

Really unexpected. I wonder if he retires or looks for another team, though I don't know a team with both the needs for a LB and the cap room to take on his contract.


He doesn't have a contract.

They have zero cap room to sign any free agents anyway.

Haha Ed Reed just arrived in Houston and refused to speak to reporters till morning and it's not even 10:30 yet. But it looks like the deal he's signing is for 3 years, not the 2 year one that everyone was speculating. I'm curious to see how much they're paying him.

From reading the article, it seemed like the MLB and Orioles were willing to work with them on game time, but they weren't going to change the day of the game for the NFL and the Ravens.

Watch everyone in the NFL try and spin this to make it the Orioles' fault, probably trying to stir up the Anti-Angelos people at the same time. Heaven forbid they play on Wednesday.

The list of the road opponents: Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions or the Denver Broncos. I say screw with everybody and pick Cleveland. I know it'll either be Denver or Pittsburgh, but I'd love for them to pick Cleveland.

I didn't see this coming, but it looks like Elvis Dumervil has agreed to a contract with the Ravens.

as a Broncos fan, I'm bummed out this. I think he was a great complement to Miller

I'm surprised he went with the Ravens, according to different sources the Ravens offer was lower than than the revised Broncos offer after FaxGate.

The initial year is for $8.5 million. The other four years are for $26.5 million. Only $12 million overall is guarenteed. To compare, the Browns gave former Raven Paul Kruger $40 million with $20 million guarenteed.

I'm sure somebody will snatch him up, but the Steelers don't want James Harrison.

Dumervil is gonna make half a million more this season that he would've after he took the pay cut with the Broncos, so that might have something to do with his decision.

nah, I think he was mad that the Broncos wanted to restructure his deal in the first place, begrudgingly accepted their offer (then luckily got out of it with the fax issue) and was happy to move to a different team.

Ravens signed S Michael Huff to a 3-year/$6-million deal. Yay.

Hopefully they can get an ILB before the draft. I prefer Karlos Dansby.

Seriously, he's bigger than the Hulk was in the 70's TV Show. He most certainly has a future in professional wrasslin'.

Well, apparently Tony Gonzalez is returning next year for the Falcons.

I was kinda hoping he would finish his career back in KC, but I'll still root for him in Atlanta.


Yes he is! :applause:

I thought this was a pretty cool thing Connor Barwin did. He took out an ad in Houston Press:

Not the most necessary change, but at least it looks decent and retains the same color scheme. Could always have been worse. Could have gone full Miami Marlins.

I had to google the old logo to know what to compare. Isn't a change I think mattered/matters but it will sell more merchandise next year with all the added FA's and expectations along with the new logo.
