Crazy NFL offseason
 
So many moves happened.

NY Giants fans are mad that Baltimore traded for Willis Mcgahee while they traded for Rueben Droughans. :roll:

Raiders signed FB Griffith and RB D.Rhodes. Signs point to QB I believe. Was thinkin they might have been wise to draft Adrian Peterson. But eh

Eagles resigned DE J.Thomas (Eagles DL has pretty much been reupped) and the biggest signing was Will James formerly Will Peterson (former NYG CB) and *drum roll* WR Bethel Johnson! SB! :banana: :rollingeyes:

NE made some nice signing with Adalius Thomas and Wes Welker. You might say who? But he was solid in Miami. With Tom Brady throwing to him he'll make plays. White David Patton only I like Wes better.


Lots of moves made. More to come. You got the NFL draft and June 1rst cuts.

For me its Joey Porter being released.

They didn't even get an extra pick iirc, they only move up 20 spots or so in the 2nd round.

BTW, no mention of the niners? They add the highest paid defensive player, Micheal Lewis and Lelie. Every day I'm starting to like the team more and more.

They are just banking on Benson having a breakout year and coming into his own.

Vikings sitting ducks even though they need upgrades everywhere.

QB, WR, TE, CB, S all need upgrades! get to work!

As much as I hate the idea of teams passing up on AP it's probably going to happen. Damn shame he's going to get passed on by the Raiders and probably the Lions. He has an Eric Dickerson-like career written all over him, he's that special.

Raiders overpaid for Rhodes. He's alright man but he's a dime a dozen. Could've had a runner like him in the second round.

Lions man they got that dude..Kevin Jones. He's nice but whatever. Maybe a two headed monster is just what the doctor ordered for Detroit.

I don't know if they draft AP though.. comes down to that thinking of well we already got a pro-bowl type guy in our backfield.

As a Giants fan...Im glad we didnt give up so much for Mcgahee with so many holes to fill. I am pissed we got Droughns and wouldve rather liked Rhodes.

I think the Pats have made huge upgrades. Walker is a very good player for the team and Thomas playing the 3-4 in New England will be huge.

NE just signed Donte Stallworth to a 6yr deal worth $30mil, $12mil guranteed.

NE is having a nice offseason plus they have 2 first round picks in the draft. Add more talent to replace the ones they have there...that they may not want to keep or pay. Nice. Tom Brady WR core is back up to snuff.

The Patriots continued their offseason spending spree, adding wide receiver Donte' Stallworth to their 2007 haul, a league source told ESPN.com's Michael Smith. Stallworth will sign a six-year contract. The deal is believed to be worth a little more that $30 million with close to $12 million guaranteed, the source told Smith

Additions of Stallworth and Wes Welker makes u say Branch who?? :rockon:

Stallworth's that kid from Cleveland, right? If so, Pats just seriously upgraded on their wing corps. It's going to be scary to see what Brady can do with some actual threats again.

Philly's getting cut every which way but loose this year. Garcia gone. Now they're deep threat lights out from under them. And a disgruntled McNabb? Philly doesn't make any noise this year that cheesesteak chomping media is going to have Donovan's head on a platter, and you can take that to the bank.

Curious to see what Oakland's going to do. Got rid of one malcontent in Porter, now they just to deal that headcase Moss, but they're going to be pretty thin on an already suspect offense. Their draft position is going to be fun to watch.
