A thread for general free agent chatter. Signings, trades, negotiations, rumors, whatever.

Some useful links for keeping up on free agent movement:

Some early stuff...

Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that the Browns are looking to acquire a QB via trade (quoted in the Red Zone). Holmgren's a WCO guy. Wonder if he'd go after Bolton (or, for that matter, McNabb).

The Panthers aren't the only team to do an about face on a franchise player. The Rams last year put a non-exclusive Franchise tag on safety OJ Atogwe. This year, per the St Louis Dispatch (seen in Rotoworld) they're giving him the low tender. They'd have the right to match offers, but would get no compensation if they chose not to.

Michael Lombardi is saying the Jets are "extremely interested" in acquiring Antonio Cromartie. Having a DB tandem of Revis and Cromartie could be intriguing, but one of the Jets beat reporters (Rich Cimini) says the Chargers won't trade him to an AFC team.

Interesting prospect from PFT:

Peppers could push Harris off Bears roster

Hayes credits two sources that say Harris is at serious risk of being released before a $5 million bonus is due in June. Signing a big-ticket defensive lineman like Peppers could make the team less likely to blow more money on Harris, who has struggled in recent years.

:svengo: Haha this shows how much peppers wanted to leave carolina that bad. He gave up a 14 mill. a year contract to possibly go toa bears team who was no better then panthers last year. Is that how dumb peppers and his so called agent is. If peppers is looking for a SB calibur team to get a ring quick. He better go looking for another team. Because the bears is not really a SB contender team right now just like the panthers. But good luck to peppers to where ever he goes.:grouphug::crazy:

Haha don't expect the panthers to be to envolved in the FA market. We haven't been big in the FA market for years now. Don't expect to happen this year.:rolleyes::icon_bs:

I meant in general. It's still fun to see all the hoopla that takes place. Though this year will be toned down a bit most likely.

Thanks for the links Mr. Scot! Bookmarks added to help me get my NFL fix!

I could see the Browns making a move for McNabb before Vick. It's still unknown if Vick can get back to his before prison level play which relied heavily on his mobility in the pocket. It seems he's lost a step in the few instances I saw him play last year.

Revis and Cromartie would be intriguing indeed. However I can't see the Chargers trading him in the AFC if it can be helped. The Jets might just step up and offer something they can't turn down though.

Also Lovie Smith is on the hot seat this year. The Bears have made it very clear Playoffs or get fired.

random thought...

trade Kemo to Zona for Early Doucet, then sign Tommie Harris in FA if he is released

Tommie Harris hasn't been good in a while. Why would we sign him?
