Then the Smellcos will probably sign Jeff Garcia who was not resigned by the Smellgles.

In other news Fred Taylor signed an extension with the Smellguars, Fred Smoot and Jermaine Wiggins were cut by the Smellkings (I really like that one), and Bryant Young is coming back to the Smellyniners.

The Smellts (thats short for Smelltriots ) likely will look to add linebacker help...making a likely unsuccessful run at Adaleus Thomas (he'll get more money from the Smellyniners) and maybe drafting a LB. They will need a running back if they do release Smelly Dillon or if he chooses to retire. Some added Smell Receiver help should be a priority as well.

What about the Smellants? What are they looking to do to help Smell-Li Manning and coach Smellghlin?

I'm thinking if Thomas is too much for the Patriots (oops, sorry - Smelltriots), they might look at Donnie Edwards.

one would hope they get some smellfensive backsmield help, as well as an answer at smelling back, be it jacobs or someone from the outside.

but when it comes down to it, they need smeli to take the next step.

Smellie Smellwards might make a good Smellt, he seems the type of player that coach Smellichick likes.

Here's hoping Thomas decides adding a possible Super Bowl ring to his money is more of a lure than just more money period.

Rather than be traded to the Bucs, Jake Plummer has decided to retire.

No, it's Smatriots! (my little brother and I made that up when we were kids too, back in the Steve Grogan days)

Other stupid names we used

Broncos= Smellways (for Elway)
Raiders= Smaiders


and these were not even meant to be offensive

Rams= Scams or Scabies
Seahawks = Skyhawks (intentional joke on other people getting it wrong)
Browns= Clowns
Redskins= Deadskins (I like them, he didn't)
Packers= Smackers
Jets= Pets
Eagles= Beagles
Chiefs- Chefs

With the help of friends, we acted out on cassette tape a complete drama, "Return of the New York Jets" which was a parody of "Return of the Jedi" in which Richard Todd found out Tom Landry was his father, and the Jets had to defeat the Smellboys to win the Super Bowl. It was funny, really.

And there was also an entire imaginary league of 28 other teams besides the NFL teams. Some of these we even made up whole rosters for, fake names, real colleges, height, weight and ages. One of these teams evolved into the team from my novel that the rock stars bought and went to the Super Bowl, where they beat- you guessed it- the Smellboys.

So were we nuts or wasted on not being reality show writers? And no, our parents never made us do any chores so we had lots of time on our hands.

Well, thanks for sharing.

C'mon, doesn't anyone care that NFL great, Jake Plummer, has retired? We've lost a legend today.
Of course, I'm being sarcastic. Jake should've just been glad to have a job in the NFL. There's no shame in holding a clipboard. Especially, when they're paying you to do so.

I really liked him. He was a cool guy and he had Basset hounds. I think he would have liked Florida. What a shame things ended this way for him. The Broncos treated him badly.

I also feel sorry for Bledsoe. Is this the end of the road for him or do you think he'll find a spot somewhere?

I feel like somewone will take him..he then has eight amazing games and then gets benched to see what they new drafy pick can do....oakland are you listening?

I will rightly admit I did not like Bledsoe when he was a Pat but you just gotta feel for the guy. I just think this is not how he envisioned his NFL career.

The craziest NFL free agency period in quite a while has started.

Nate Clements got 8 years for $80 million from the 49ers, and $22 million is guaranteed.

Even more crazy is the money the top guards are getting. Derrick Dockery got a $50 million deal with the Bills with $18.5 million of it guaranteed.

It ain't MLB, but by NFL standards, that's quite insane.
