    NFL Offseason Thread 2008 (for the little things)

    I love Packers GM Ted Thompson.

    All year Packers fans have been waffling about what to do with DT Corey Williams, who was going to command way more on the open market than he's worth to the Packers -- a team where he could easily have been just the 4th-best tackle next year behind Ryan Pickett, Johnny Jolly and Justin Harrell -- so what does Thompson do? He franchise tags him for a week and then trades Williams to Cleveland for a 2nd-rounder.

    Now I'm even more psyched for the draft.

    Kris Jenkins to New York really perked up my ears a bit, Its almost a gamble for them he'll either be a waste of 20 Mill and draft picks or hell fix all there problems on the line.

    Corey Williams in Cleveland is interesting to, considering all the other talent rumored to be checking out the Browns on the defensive side of the ball.

    Then, now, forever.

    NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that the Jaguars agreed to terms with Jerry Porter on a six-year, $30 million contract, with $10 million guaranteed.


    Looks like the Jags have really been working on there Recieving core, and they signed Cleo Lemons

    It scared me for a moment, but they were just designing a page to be ready for when he does make his announcement. They've got one in case he returns as well. There's nothing to it.

    I'm glad the Lions got rid of that fat tub of lazy lard. He was a cancer in the lockerroom anyway. But I'm sure the Lions will botch the two draft picks as per usual.

    Correction on SS's post, Rodgers is going to Cleveland for Leigh Boden + 5th round pick (I think) which is even better for the Lions since they get a starting Corner with potential and the Browns get even better on the defensive line. Hey the Lions might acutally be worth the 4 hour drive to see one of there games if MM doesn't fuck up there picks and gets a decent running back this year.

    Going to Cinci got botched because Cinci didn't have the cap space or something

    Then, now, forever.

    Correction to Shaun(lol) It's Leigh Bodden along with a 3rd Round pick for Shaun Rogers.

    But Shaun Rogers/Corey Williams? Not too shabby if they both pan out.

    Re: NFL Offseason Thread 2008 (for the little things)

    Yeah the Browns are making some great moves these past few offseasons, first the draft last year and Jamal Lewis, now they've got Lewis coming back, two starting QBs on there roster and improving there Dline. If they get a LB and Stallworth they'll be a team to watch next year for sure. The only problem they have is having no picks till the 4th round of the draft.


    EDIT: 49ers are cleanig up, they just signed DE Justin Smith to a 6 year 45 mill deal, I'd have to say theyve had the best FA period so far.

    Then, now, forever.

    The Broncos reached agreement with Detroit free-agent linebacker Boss Bailey on a five-year, $17.5 million deal, NFL Network's Adam Schefter is reporting.
    The Bailey Brothers. Should be interesting.

    Really good at getting old and burned by Philip Rivers

    I'm suprised no bodys mentioned Takeo Spikes being released, he could be a great line backer for somebody.

    Does that make you happy Mr. Cool?

    Not really...

    Too many unknown factors and they need more improvement on the o line before the running game will improve.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are bringing back one of the most popular players in franchise history, signing free-agent running back Warrick Dunn on Monday night.

    Dunn was drafted in the first round by Tampa Bay in 1997 and was the team's feature back until leaving for Atlanta in 2002. He remains third on the team's all-time rushing list with 4,200 yards. The Bucs initially let Dunn go because of concerns about salary cap space and his durability.

    But Dunn proved those doubts wrong in Atlanta, rushing for 5,979 yards in the past six seasons. Dunn was released by Atlanta last week after the Falcons brought in free agent Michael Turner from San Diego.

    Dunn is 33 and one of only 22 players in NFL history to rush for more than 10,000 yards. He isn't expected to be a feature back in this stint with the Bucs, but he could share time in a backfield that may have to start the season without Carnell Williams, who is coming off a major knee injury.

    Pat Yasinskas covers the NFL for ESPN.com.
    Good for Dunn, He should get a decent amount of snaps there with williams coming back from injury..or being the #1 back

    Then, now, forever.

    Just heard the Lions signed Tatum Bell and I guess the other day they signed Brian Kelly as well. Does this spell the end for Jones?

    Veteran quarterback David Carr agreed to a deal with the New York Giants on Wednesday.

    A source said that that the contract is for one year and $1 million with incentives that could increase the overall value of the deal.
