Oh, and there's a rumour that Adelius Thomas and the Pats have agreed to a deal.

True enough, but two offensive lineman so far have received more guaranteed money than Steve Huchinson did last year, and I don't consider them anywhere near as good as him.

The major rise of the salary cap, combined with teams having more room under it to begin with, just created an MLB-like free agency race, even if the numbers aren't the same thing.

You've made too many people 'smell.' See the list I posted for the correct terms. The Broncos are the "Smellways" (for Elway). And the Vikings and 49ers never 'smell' as they are among my favorites.

But isn't Bryant Young a bit long in the tooth to be of any use to anyone now?

I would love the Patriots to go after him with all the money they have this year. I know he'll command big bucks, and the Pats aren't exactly the team that does that sort of thing, but something tells me they may try to do it with Thomas. I'm sure Belichick liked what he saw during the week in Hawaii.
Ahem.

i guess that depends on wether or not you think taytum bell is good or is simply a product of the denver bronco system... i tend to believe it's the system. and does anyone believe that millen won't take another over-rated widereciever with the pick they got?

it seems that all the lions did was replace an injured running back with an injury prone running back, giving up their best defensive back in the process.

time will tell i suppose

The Lions are rumored to be shopping their pick around a bit. They thought of using their #2 overall pick on a rb or a tackle. They just traded for a running back they like and also got that tackle in the process.

They also signed a defensive end, which was sorely needed after they cut James Hall. Wait...it was needed before they cut James Hall.

All these moves cannot make a winning team. The attitude of this team is, and has been for the past 5 years...horrible.

If Millen drafts another wr with the pick, he should be fired immediatly. But you're right. He will and he'll be praised for it here in Michigan...


So happy I'm a Bear's fan right now.

You'd think the Lions would draft Brady Quinn. It's not like Jon Kitna is their quarterback of the future.

I'm personally not sold on Quinn, but in that position, you almost have to do it.

Unless they think that Orslovsky might end up taking over - he certainly was excellent at UConn, but that's probably a reach.

Maybe the Lions should trade their #2 pick to the Pats for both of their first rounders and a third rounder. Certainly would help the Lions get more players, which they need, and hmm, there's this Calvin Johnson guy that the Pats could use...



Yeah, right...

So now the Bucs have the rights to Plummer, and Garcia too! Are they looking for a QB controversy? Why both? Or is Plummer still retiring? What will the Eagles do if McNabb doesn't come back healthy?

Yeah...rumor has it now that the Bucs are trying to trade Plummer for a 4th round pick.

I don't think it would have worked keeping Garcia in Philly. Just my opinion. One of the two had to go. And I think McNabb was the better choice.

I disagree. The Eagles should have done better to keep Garcia, as he fit into their system very well, and who knows how McNabb will be.

Poor guy he deserved better than this. May he have fun riding off into the sunset with his basset hounds and find a life of peace and happiness.
