The Saints are looking much like how I build my own Aston Martin on their website.

Poor NCPsa10. I heard it was auto erotic asphyxiation

Michael Crabtree Willing To Wait For Right Opportunity, 49ers Still Interested

Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that free agent WR Michael Crabtree is willing to wait as long it takes to find the right situation for him.

According to Maiocco, the 49ers remain interested in re-signing Crabtree, but he reportedly prefers to play for a team that places a greater emphasis on the passing game.

Maiocco mentions that if Crabtree were to return to San Francisco next year, he likely wouldn’t be an every-down receiver now that they’ve brought in Torrey Smith.

As of now, Crabtree has taken just one visit to Miami to meet with the Dolphins. Beyond that, there has been very little buzz surround the former first-round pick.

Crabtree, 27, appeared in all 16 games and caught 68 passes for 698 yards receiving and four touchdowns last year. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 95 receiver out of 110 qualifying players.

We have Crabtree listed as the No. 34 player in our Top 1oo Free Agents list.

now the Matthews brothers are both in the NFC North, as the Vikings (who lost MLB Jasper Brinkley to Dallas) have signed Casey Matthews

NBC Pro Football Talk:

"Casey Matthews, 26, started 11-of-16 games at inside linebacker for Philadelphia in 2014, notching 53 tackles and 1.5 sacks. His starts came in place of the injured Mychal Kendricks (three) and DeMeco Ryans (eight)."

@Rapsheet

#Nebraska pass-rusher Randy Gregory, who impressed during his private workout today, visited the #Panthers last week. Unlikely he gets to 25

No thanks. He's a year away from even stepping on the field outside of 3rd and long situations only.

Isn't that the kid that only weighed 235?

He sure as hell doesn't play DE in our system at that weight?

Tashaun Gipson is a free agent still? He's a pro bowl safety and young. Must have a price tag on himself that's just not doable.

 

He's technically a FA but they slapped on a RD2-tender and are still working on a deal.  Been quiet recently though.

Ah yes now I remember that they tendered him. I bet he stays in Cleveland.

    • If they would have had the #5 pick then they could have had so many teams trying to trade up there for a QB. They'd be ahead of the Chargers and Dolphins who both need QB's. The Dolphins have 3 first round draft picks this year. That would have been such a good haul, potentially grabbing those picks had they won more games. They'd have to leapfrog several teams. Unfortunately at #7 both the chargers and the Dolphins don't need to move up. The only scenario i'd see is if they pick the QB's they need and the Dolphins pull the trigger on a OT to protect their QB, the Panthers would get the 18th and 26th, plus a lower round pick to move up to #7 if the draft board falls to where no OT was taken prior to the Panthers pick.      The thing is, that if the Panthers decide to stay with Cam, they need to protect his blind side and if the best OT is on the board, I don't think they would give up that pick for 2 first rounders. I wouldn't. Especially when it's the best tackle of the draft. I don't know.    IF they stay at the pick and Brown is available or Thomas...Take Thomas. 
    • Becton went 4th Ovr in Daniel jeremiahs last mock- I’m gonna go out on a limb and say he isn’t available in the third  
    • This has all been thoroughly debated examined and tested by people who are experts in the field. Noll is not one guy out on a limb. The bottom line is the consensus amongst respected experts is that sports stadiums do not provide the economic impact they claim to. https://research.stlouisfed.org/publications/page1-econ/2017-05-01/the-economics-of-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ https://ritholtz.com/2017/07/economics-subsidizing-sports-stadiums/ That article was written by a member of the Federal Reserve. Surely he doesn't know what he's talking about when it comes to money and economic impact. Here are a few quotes from that article I would particularly draw to your attention:  "When surveyed, 86 percent of economists agreed that “local and state governments in the U.S. should eliminate subsidies to professional sports franchises.” "In a 2017 poll, 83 percent of the economists surveyed agreed that “Providing state and local subsidies to build stadiums for professional sports teams is likely to cost the relevant taxpayers more than any local economic benefits that are generated.” It's not that stadiums don't bring in any money, or have any economic impact, no one is arguing that. But the reality is that the numbers show that impact is less than the cost of the subsidies provided, by large margins. This is why the vast majority of economists say they should be discontinued. Your math about tickets is irrelevant because all of that revenue goes into the private owners pockets. The point is that fewer games means fewer times people are coming to the area and having that impact you are talking about. That's why more games has more impact. Ticket prices and sales are irrelevant because we're talking about the impact on the economy, not actual ticket sales. It's not about how many tickets are bought at what prices, it's about how many times people stay in hotels, eat in restaurants, etc etc etc. And the people who measure these things and look at the data far more than you or I say it's not close, stadiums are a bad deal for taxpayers as an economic investment. Bottom line, if a cardiologist tells you you'd better stop eating fried foods or you're not likely to last another five years, do you do what the highly trained expert says, or do you sit there and argue with him about whether the burgers you cook on the grill should count or not?
