I definitely think the Ravens are the biggest Free Agency Fail. Not sure about the winners though - I won't be prepared to answer that until a few weeks into the season.

Yeah, losing all those players on the defensive side of the team that helped the Ravens win the super bowl makes them a serious underdog to win another superbowl.  We'll see how much of a QB Joe Flacco is with all those key losses this coming season.  Oh yeah, Anquan Boldin is with the 49ers.  Ouch!

Sad news for the city of Chicago, Illinois:  Middle Linebacker Brian Urlacher will not be a Chicago Bear in the 2013 NFL Season.  The lack of a agreement was the cause of Urlacher parting ways with the Chicago Bears.  Urlacher has spent his 13 years in a bears' uniform.

(Edited by richard_cranium)

I believe that a ceremonial contract would be unnecessary. The teams can do what they want when it comes to guys that played for the team. If they want to retire his jersey/put him in the ROH that would be their business. Both the Eagles and Packers have retired #92 for Reggie White.

haha right!? I'm okay with the contract of Avril (2 years, $15m) and Bennett (1yr, $1m) but Harvin was pretty steep. Although, only I think $14.5 of that is guaranteed, so that's good. Now they're over cap, which means I'm going to probably cry soon when someone goes somewhere, but at least they addressed some needs.

I am sooooooo glad my Saints haven't done ( or can't due to the cap) anything splashy. I'm even okay with losing Bushrod. Tough loss, but their O-Line is built from the inside out. Tackles, no matter how good they are, are going to be expendable once they reach a certain price.

I have to say I'm happy with what the Broncos are doing.  I liked the VAsquez signing, the re-signing of Vickerson and signing of Terrance Knighton to bolster the middle of the D line.. it will be interesting to see what comes of the visit with Dominique Rogers-Cromartie

Exactly, the media just love to give certain sports fans some "false hope" just to sell tickets just because a team pick up some "attractive" free agents.  I believe the eagles were desperate to win a super bowl when they came with the "Dream Team".  I think the Alex Smith deal with the Chiefs could be smoke and mirrors because he's not Peyton Manning, Drew Brees or Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith is not the type of QB that can attempt over 30 passes in a game, that's why he has fewer interceptions in the last couple of seasons...  Another deal that can be smoke and mirrors is the Bucs' deal with former 49ers' Safety Dashon Goldston.  He's coming into a buccaneer team that was horrible in stopping the pass and they paid him around $41 million dollars...  All I can say is good luck with that one.

Wes Welker signs w/Broncos for 2



I really thought this rumor of Welker and Broncos in talks was a ploy by Welker and his agent to get NE to up their offer and blink first to resign there. I am quite surprised that he has now signed and what a great move by them. Welker should be a perfect fit to go along with Manning and that Denver style of offense and even better its a huge loss for the Pats (that is sweet in itself) !

Not sure it makes Broncos odds on favs to win the SB but def puts them among the favorites !

This offseason was important for the Detroit Lions to make some moves based on what happened last season.  The Lions were hungry for a Running Back and they finally got one and they also fixed their D-Line.  Now the question remains if the Lions' WRs can stay healthy like Burleson and if they get another WR weapon other than Calvin Johnson and Pettigrew.  Also let's see how the Lions' Secondary will do since Chris Houston re-signed with the Lions...  The Packers are still the team to beat in the NFC North.

I can't get enough of everything Jets related. Garrard is QB #5 on their roster right now. Is there a book where i can wager on which round they take another QB in this year's draft? I like them taking Landry Jones 2 or 3 rounds too early.

3/12/13   |   Sharp Square   |   11945 respect


If your the Jets front office. Why not wait let the dust settle and have a chance to bring in a QB like Cassel who is likely to be cut now or hell even Fitzpatrick over a quick move on Garrard for just as cheap cause they dont want to invest a lot into the position with sanchez's worthless contract in place. To me both of them offer a much better chance to take over and have better numbers then Sanchez unlike Garrard. Or maybe even made a move at Chase Daniels a solid back up to date who would take a lower end deal if guaranteed a chance to fight for starting job.  Also seems like they want the illusion of competition for Sanchez but not enough of it to actually take his job. enlightened

Thanks Tony your a peach ! cheeky

Let alone there are 3 pretty good TE's in this years draft(all of which could replace him immediately) that all will probably still be there when they pick in the late first round. I am sure that they will still take one of them, since Gonzalez will retire in the next few seasons.
