Also, I don't know the market, but anything less than 55 million for Hightower is just too lenient in favor of the Pats. He was their best defender and just about the best ILB in the NFL last year.


Took that home town discount I guess...

I believed he'd be back with the Patriots, but on maybe an 14-16 million 1 year deal. So he could test the waters next year, but the Patriots have seemed to hit on every area that was considered a weakness for their team from last year which just won the Super Bowl not two months ago. Unless Eli makes it there to dethrone Tom, I see another banner going up in New England.

Gonna be impossible for Vegas not to install them as the favorites to repeat...

And as far as Eli... we'll see. :D

Eli? Hell, it's gonna be Romo this time, baby!

Unless he's wearing a Texans uniform, then he'll inevitably get hurt in week one because it's the Texans and we're not allowed to have success at the QB spot.

Doubt he's as productive behind that line.

Mo Claiborne turns down $5M from Jags - asks for $7.5M

He scored a 6 on his Wonderlic.

Saw you resigned McFadden. Liked him coming out. But dude is so fragile. Must handle with care. :wink:

As long as he isn't overworked, he's fine. He was really good when he came in to spell Zeke last year once he got healthy.

Meanwhile, Carr took that deal with the Ravens. Claiborne went to the Jets.

Did I mention somewhere - Claiborne scored a 6 on his Wonderlic...

I agree. I don't see Murray doing well behind that O-line. Looks like A.P. is going to Oakland or Giants unless there is another silent player somewhere.

Any legs to Blount to GB? Saw a blip, but the source seemed less than reliable.

Haven't heard that one down here. I would think there are better options but I'm certainly no expert.

I'd be surprised if Peterson signs with a team before training camp. He's always said he really hates the offseason program. Also he's not going to make a crap ton of money like he has in the past so there is no need for him to sign soon.

Wow I didn't even know the Bears signed Mike Glennon

Chicago has to get consideration as being a possible worst team in the league this year right?

I could see Cleveland or SF again, but Chicago is pretty atrocious as well
