NFL Free Agent News

You were scooped on Marshall but no one's mentioned the Polamolu story yet.

Yeah, I thought it was interesting. Obviously they want him to retire a Steeler and have a happy ending, but I'm interested in seeing how it goes. No, he's not what he was, but he's still better than a lot of starting safeties out there. I'm guessing they are just ready for a reboot from the old regime, and being that lebeau resigned, now is a better time than ever. So if they are forced to let him go, I would definitely like to bring him in for a year or two... I've always been a fan of his game.

It seems like there are way more household name free agents this offseason. Maybe it's just me...Either way I'm excited to see who gathers dust for a few days/weeks until Gettlemen picks em up.

 

I think last year's stellar rookie WR class is having an impact on the way teams view veteran WRs.  All of a sudden it's like teams feel as if they can find a plug and play WR in the draft.  That used to not be the case.  It used to take a WR 2-3 years of development before you could expect starter caliber production from them.  My question is if that's the new norm or was last year's WR class just THAT damn good?  I honestly think it's a bit of both.  More and more college teams are adopting pass heavy attacks and the WRs are generally coming out better groomed.  I think the tighter officiating for DBs in the NFL has a big impact too.  Back in the day, NFL DBs were very physical and I think it took young WRs a couple of years to adapt to that style of play.  So, I think going forward we'll see more success for rookie WRs, but I still think the 2014 class was very special.  600 yards used to be considered a very good season for a rookie WR.  Last year, 9 rookies put up 600+ yards with a 10th coming very close.  Three rookies put up 1000+ yards with a 4th coming very close.  That's just unheard of.

I gotta laugh at the Steelers trying to manufacture a happy ending as if nobody knows what's going on behind the scenes.

LeBeau gone... Polamolu gone... And while they can still be a good team, the Steelers are definitely not what they used to be.

Call me crazy, but I think that team has been slowly declining under Mike Tomlin for a while now.

Two different teams have been speculated as possible landing spots for both Ndamukong Sun and Greg Hardy. Specifically, the Raiders and the Dolphins.

What an interesting D-Line that would make.

(probably lead the league in fines)

I knew the Raiders could afford both but didn't know the dolphins could. If they did it, the Raiders would be getting back to the mentality that won them SBs

Anyone else heard that the Raiders are rumored to go after Cobb, juilus Thomas, and still draft kevin white to give Carr weapons?

 

Hey, if you believe in your young QB, then build around him.

 

Or... you could sign Jericho Cotchery and Jason Avant and pimp Byron Bell as a legit NFL LT because he's left handed.

Lmao, very very true. But they do always have ample cap space.
