thompson is cheap, better get back to drafting well
Teein' Off on Links
Green Bay is better off drafting someone anyway.
A boy, a Twitter page, and the aspiration that you follow him. It's what this country was founded upon.
yea, they don't have alot of room to spare right now. Their cap number is at 20 mil right now, but Aaron, Clay, and BJ Raji are all gonna need new contracts after this upcoming season. So, they can't really spend much.
I think they have some faith in Dejuan Harris and James Starks, but it really would have been nice to have a solid veteran to rely on.
If my digits are right my Cowboys are something like less than a million under the cap. It's going to be a rough offseason. I don't know what the hell they're going to do. They need to extend Romo (they just need to bite the bullet and accept that they have no choice), extend or trade Anthony Spencer, and cut Doug Free.

Competent backup. Good move.

Yep, and dirt cheap.
Apparently Jags and Eagles both very, very interested in Geno Smith. Maybe there's a chance Chiefs can trade down a couple of spots after all.
I hope its a smoke screen for Jacksonville to try and get someone to trade for their 2nd overall pick, i think Geno will be a bust
I think he'll be serviceable. Nothing more.
Luckily, the new rookie salaries allow you to take those gambles now. It's not like taking a quarterback will set you back anymore. Hypothetically, they could take Smith and draft a quarterback in the first again next year.
I wouldn't do that, but hypothetically you could.
I'm a HUGE fan of Bridgewater out of Louisville that's who id ideally like to get
Jennings to the Vikings. Being reported on ESPN.com now.
Wow 5 year deal..... $18 million guaranteed, I don't know about that

Broncos cut Elvis Dumervil
Denver Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil agreed to a reduced salary, but was released by the team...
He's worth it. Jennings is a pros pro who wil be a great asset to young WRs coming in and is only 29. He also brings all that packers knowledge on the Vikings staff. I like it. Jealous, as a bears fan.
All depends on if he can stay healthy.
Maybe this isn't popular opinion, but I think if there's any cause for concern with backs or receivers than teams are wise to err on the side of caution by staying away unless they're truly desperate.
With the new limitations on rookie salaries you don't have to pay 1st rounders set back money anymore. The investments are better with rookies because they're not allowed to re-negotiate their deal for several more years. If you get a bust it costs you practically nothing. If you get a productive player you have him at a reasonable place for at least a number of years.
Not to mention - excluding the very rare talents - it seems as if rotational skill players are becoming a dime a dozen anymore. We're seeing more and more players coming from mid to late rounds (even quite a few undrafted guys) and producing immediately. Part of that is because of how competitive college football has become and the vast number of available athletes. Another part probably has to do with the level of expertise these coaches and quarterbacks have. Guys like Rodgers/Brady/Manning can do more with less.

Jake Long signs with St Louis
When left tackle Jake Long left St. Louis after a three-day stay without a contract, it appeared as though the Dolphins' chance to keep their No. 1 overall draft pick from 2008 had dramatically increased. Maybe so, but in the end, Long eschewed Miami
Have to agree with Richie that Miami is foolish in letting him go.
I'm with you, cant let quality young lineman just walk
Dallas was able to bring back Ernie Sims off the free agent market today. A very underrated move.
They now have approx. 100k in cap space until June 1st.
Titans signed Ryan Fitzpatrick after releasing Matt Hasselbeck.
Barton Simmons of 247Sports is not impressed. He intercepted Fitzpatrick in college.
Your team. All the time.
