    EFAs/RFA keep?

    First of all, referring to Logan Thomas as LT just doesn't feel right. As for resigning the aforementioned guys, meh.

    Best one year wonder?

    They traded Portis for Champ Bailey & a 2nd round pick (Tatum Bell), so it worked out for them either way. I always thought Butch Davis was a dope for not drafting Portis, having recruited & coached him at U of Miami.

    Best one year wonder?

    I can still hear Chris Berman shouting "WOOT!" whenever Dante made a cut. Yes! Tatum Bell, Mike Anderson, Olandis Gary... who am I forgetting? I would not put Portis in that group. Speaking of the Broncos: 2010- WR Brandon Lloyd, in year 8 of an injury-riddled / otherwise sub-par career, broke out to lead the league in receiving yards. 77-1448-11.

  6. I agree that every team has the right, independently, to choose not to employ a player. It just doesn't seem lke that's all that happened here.
  7. Why does it have to be a funny comeback? You're saying Kaepernick brought this on himself by doing something that was well within his rights. There was nothing in the NFL rulebook that said he had to stand for the national anthem.
  8. That's about as sensible as "what did she expect to happen when she wore that short skirt?".

    Charles Clay Released

    I still can't believe his degenerative knee condition didn't heal itself when he moved to Buffalo.
  10. Kaepernick averaged ~$7M/yr over his NFL career. AAF pays $250K/yr. Imagine you were making $100K/yr for dangerous work with a good company, then lost your job. Some other rinky dink company offers you the same dangerous position, but for just $3,500/yr. If you don't take the job, that clearly means you're just not interested in working at all.
  11. You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
  12. It's possible that Kaepernick doesn't want to play in the AAF at all, and gave $20M as the crazy number it would take to get him to change his mind. It's like when you agree to get with some gross person if your buddies will pay you $5,000.

    Most Heartbreaking Losses of Players

    Losing Bruce, Thurman, and Andre in the same offseason ('00) was sad because it signaled the end of an era. Letting Flutie walk the following year was also tough for me. I knew it was coming, but his lights out performance in that meaningless last game, a rout vs Seattle, gave me false hope that maybe we wouldn't be stuck with Rob Johnson starting for a full season. Instead, the football gods would use Patriots' CB Terrell Buckley to do their bidding, resulting in a broken collarbone for Rob on a blustery November day in Foxboro. As Rob Johnson was helped off the field, Patriots' fans chanted for Flutie. If we're being honest, it was a pretty good burn.

    Hearing Broncos will let Matt Paradis test FA

    Overpay to get the linemen you need. If they pick the right guys, nobody's going to care about the extra $1-2M they're getting per year.

    Ravens trading Joe Flacco to Broncos

    Flacco going to Denver is good news for anyone who wants to sign John Brown. Any chance of Brown following Flacco wherever he goes probably just flew out the window, as Brown's Sickle cell condition & the high altitude of Denver would not be a good pairing.
