More big names join unrestricted free agency
 
Along with Alan Faneca....

Filed to ESPNBoston.com: LB Adalius Thomas has been notified by the Patriots that he has been released.

Quote:

The Jaguars will release DT John Henderson on Monday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Changes are afoot in Jacksonville. The team will also withdraw its restricted free agent tender to LB Clint Ingram, making him an unrestricted free agent. Henderson was replaced by surprise top-ten pick Tyson Alualu, while Ingram was displaced by Kirk Morrison. Henderson will get a job shortly. The 31-year-old is no longer a big sack threat, but remains an effective run defender.
rotoworld


Both players weren't needed anymore with additions of Alualu and Brandon Spikes. Curious as to what other big names could be released. Do the Bills carry Spiller, Fred Jackson, and Marshawn Lynch? Could Osi Umenyiora finally be gone with JPP added? Free agency getting a bit of a second wind.

I think the Bills have got to get rid of Lynch or Jackson whether it be by trade or dropping them.

Just looked up those names I was speculating on (Lynch and Osi)...


Quote:

There has been much speculation about Marshawn Lynch’s future, but when asked how the selection of Spiller impacts Buffalo’s 2007 first-round pick, Nix maintained it has no impact.

“It doesn’t change a thing,” said Nix. “(Lynch is) still ours and we intend for him to be here.”

"We intend for him to be here" doesn't sound very reassuring for Lynch.


Quote:

"Osi is going to play for us in 2010," Mara pledged by phone.

With the 15th pick in the first round, the Giants selected South Florida pass rusher Jason Pierre-Paul, inspiring new speculation that the disgruntled Umenyiora would end up on the block.

"We're bringing him back," Mara maintained after Pierre-Paul was picked. "He's only 28, we see him as a talented and motivated player, and I think he's going to have a huge year for us."

See the difference between the comments on Lynch and Osi? :lol

I would love to have John Henderson on the Raiders!

Wow. Buccaneers release defensive tackle Chris Hovan and guard Arron Sears. Also let go were fullback B.J. Askew, guard Shawn Murphy, punter Sam Paulescu and cornerback Stoney Woodson.

Letting go of Hovan and Sears is a big blow. Hovan, while wasn't great, was the only veteran presence left in the lockerroom and he wouldve been smart to keep around during McCoy and Price's rookie struggles.

Arron Sears was a beast on the OL his rookie season, but had some "personal issues" (mental illness, maybe depression plus something else reportedly) that kept him from playing a down last season. He is likely to retire. very sad for him. He was a stud his rookie year and is now out of football. Hope he goes on and is able to live a happy life.

Also expected to be traded/cut from the Bucs are DT Ryan Sims and WR Michael Clayton.

I hate homers sometimes. :rolleyes: Listening to Boston radio all day, everyone and even the DJ's were slamming Bill for signing Thomas, citing it as his second biggest mistake as a GM [behind trading up for Chad Jackson, now that was terrible]. But ask any Patriot fan in 2007 and we'd rattle off how Thomas is gonna be our guy and he's gonna take over and he's this and he's that and he'll be incredible and blah blah blah. We were all excited about. Flash forward two years, he doesn't work out, ends up being a bad signing, and we slam Bill for it, yet two years ago we praise him? Hypocritical much? Can't admit we all thought the same thing?

We put Bill up on a pedestal for being a genius, but destroy him when he makes a mistake like he's some sort of God who never does wrong. F*cking makes me sick.

Jets are being stupid this offseason. They're trying way too hard. They're gonna be an entire new team and its NOT going to work.

How are they being stupid? Being aggressive filling holes?

You know its not going to work because.... You sound jealous right now.

Although they have made a splash but they have addressed all the issues that caused them not to get to the Superbowl.

To be honest both ESPN and the NYP are unreliable so either story could be true.

I think the expectations and pressure will be unreal next season... Rex is getting what he wanted as well as Johnson the owner.

I wish they werent such media whores because if it werent for the Bengals and Colts not having anything to play for we may have not made the playoffs at all. Although i think we proved our worth winning on the road!:pimp:

Posterize you absolutely right in regards to the sources they are both bottom of the barrel.

The only way I see AT coming to the Jets if its on the cheap outside of that the Jets are watching the money they spend! We have to resign Mangold Brickhouse and Revis Island next year!

Here's something more reliable:

Quote:

On the show, Tannenbaum said regarding Thomas and the Jets, “maybe down the line… but really nothing imminent right now. We’re going to stand pat with what we have. Maybe down the line, we’ll add a player of two. Nothing on the horizon.”
