Muhammad Wilkerson to the Packers. Good add. They need defensive playmakers.

Cardinals will also sign Mike Glennon, in addition to Bradford. So expect Glennon to start multiple games.

Seems like a crappy way for Larry Fitzgerald to go out, and of wasting a year of David Johnson's prime.

Bears get Taylor Gabriel. I do like what the Bears have done to revamp their skill position players. Giving Trubisky a chance to succeed, at least. With non-archaic John Fox at the wheel, perhaps their offense will actually be decent next season.



Rodgers must be having mixed feelings. Packers finally got him a receiving TE but then dump his favorite WR. I kinda wish Nelson would come to the Dolphins but we have no money and signed duplicate slot WR's.


Nelson will probably go to the Pats they love their white WRs

ROFLRAVENS. 4 years, $29million to WR Ryan Grant, who has 2 seasons with Kirk Cousins where he failed to get double digits in receptions.

Probably. I would've thought Baltimore too since they need his kind of threat but they wasted their money on Ryan Grant. Maybe Minnesota if Jordy wants to go the Richard Sherman revenge route.

Interestingly, he's visiting the Raiders.

Prince Amukamara finally gets a contract that lasts longer than a year. Re-signs with Bears for 3.

Titans continue to dig from the poisoned Patriots well by signing Dion Lewis to a 4 year deal.

Giants sign Jonathan Stewart, who should've been put out to pasture 3 seasons ago. What a dumpster fire.

Amukamara doesn't have great ball skills but he covers well. Decent signing for the Bears, and I like what the Bears did today.

I think Lewis is a good back, so I like this signing by the Titans. I expect a committee with Henry, and I like that tandem.

As for the Giants, yes, this one is baffling, even with the Gettleman connection.

He'd be the most dependable kicker the Chargers have ever had since Kaeding/Carney haha.

I think he'd play the Alfred Morris role. This actually makes me believe the Brown turds will draft Barkley even more.

They still have the very usable Duke Johnson though, too.

Giants finally do something meaningful to address their woeful offensive line, by getting Nate Solder.

Jerick McKinnon goes to the 49ers--for a lot of money, it seems--and is likely to be their lead back. Could be interesting in that Shanahan scheme, though I'm sure some of their other guys will get work too.

Suh officially released, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up. Tyrann Mathieu was also released.

Insurance policies. Don't forget the Cowboys had Zeke, Morris, and McFadden.

That's a good nab by the Giants and finally they get someone to protect Eli's blindside. But they need a total rehaul especially after losing Richburg.

I don't know if McKinnon can handle that kind of load. He's a good receiving back and scatback though. But way too much money even though the Whiners can afford it.

Oh well. Would've been interesting to see how Suh and Quinn could've performed together but he's just too expensive. Eagles, the team he wanted, are filled to the brim with DT's. Likewise for NE. Maybe Oakland would deal with him.

It'll be interesting to see how Mathieu fares without his guardian angel Pat Pete. I'm almost certain if he had been drafted elsewhere, his life would've been a 180 in the wrong direction.

All-Pro, potential HOF, LT Joe Thomas retires after 11 seasons. Shame he spent all of that on the Browns.

I wouldn't put it past Gettleman to draft Nelson with the #2 pick to really try to beef up that offensive line. It's his philosophy. That said, if the Browns pass on Barkley at #1, he could be tough to pass up. And, of course, they could always go QB at #2.

Story of the Dolphins this year. One step forward, two steps back. Signed former Pro Bowl Guard Josh Sitton. Lost RG Jermon Bushrod and for some reason Mike Pouncey wants a release. Though we traded for 49er's C Daniel Kilgore with essentially just a minor move down in 7th round picks.

I think Carr needs a big target especially if Gruden brings in the WCO. Both Crabtree and Cooper are 6'0 who rely more on route running than height.

Texans get Honey Badger for just a one year deal.

Cardinals improve their line with Justin Pugh.

Ravens pick up Michael Crabtree because they're really desperate for WR's.

Raiders pick up a CB in Melvin who had a solid year last season.

Jets sign Avery Williamson, who I was hoping my LB needy Phins would've kicked the tires on.

Bills give a lot of money to DT Star Lotulelei despite previously dumping a better DT in Marcell Dareus.

I think that what the Ravens did to Ryan Grant is really shady. They gave him what looked like an overpay and they were widely panned for it. Then the Raiders release Michael Crabtree, and within an hour, Grant's deal gets voided because of a failed physical? Because of a minor foot issue from Week 17?

I'll put it another way: they thought enough of him to give him that "overpay" in the first place. He's going to be healed well, well in advance of Week 1 this year, unless I'm missing something. So because he might not be 100% right this moment, they designate it as a failed physical? They saw an opportunity to get a "better" WR, and they did it, and it feels cheap as hell. The timing of how this all went down is far too suspicious.

If Grant really doesn't have a serious injury, I hope he files and wins a grievance. Now the dude is out in the cold in free agency, where most teams have spent most of their money already. Sure, he'll still get a deal somewhere, but nowhere close to what he thought he got from the Ravens. There's a reason that a lot of people hate the Ravens, and it's because they've always toed the line of trying to get a competitive advantage.
