  3. G Larry Warford is leaving Detroit, headed to New Orleans.

    Dammit.

  4. In more Lions related news, word on the street is Detroit is going to release Deandre Levy. Gave the guy a fat deal in 2015 only to pay him to not play for the better part of two seasons.

    Dammit.

  5. Oh. And Reilly Reiff bolted for Minnescrotum. That - if you are keeping score at home - is the entire right side of the Lions' offensive line walking out the dorr for NOTHING.

    Bob Quinn, you are not blowing my skirt up, dude.

    So Buffalo threw away a good corner in Nivkell Robey, lost one to free agency in Stephon Gilmore. Ibthinknit is OK to not pay Gilmore what he wanted but it was stupid to toss Robey. They signed Micah Hyde so at least slot corner got weaker. They also signed two fullback. Yay for not embracing the modern game and the skillsetsof their roster. That has gone so well for New England. Getbigger, not faster. See what it has done for nobody over the years?

    Losers yesterday:

    Bills- Lost very good players and now will end up giving up on Taylor when the team's management ultimately failed him.

    Bengals- Lost all but one good of the good players. Whitworth is sneaky bad loss for them. Rumors said that a couple of those deals (Whit for sure) were lost by the team over a couple million dollars here or there.

    Deadskins- What a joke. You hire a guy with a known addiction problem and then fire him after the first two consecutive winning seasons in the Snyder era. Why would anyone not named Bruce Allen or Dan Snyder want to work there?

    Chargers- Okung was one of the worst tackles in the league last season, truly showing that his prime is long over. Phil Rivers better up that life insurance policy. Again.

    Seahawks- The Russ Wilson awful A-rod-ish photo.


    In the Middle:

    Bears- Didn't get a corner and signed a QB with 18 games started.... who has a 5-13 record, a completion percentage below 60 and also a 6.5 career YPA. You usually know QBs once they have 32 starts under their belt. Glennon has 18 and got killed in them, so he may still have a chance. We all knew the Cutler thing was coming, but don't be surprised if the Bears still pick Watson or Trubisky at 3. They had a couple sneaky good signings to put them solidly in the middle.

    Jags- Spent a bunch of money again. With their history, they are due for some of these deals to work out. Still have Blake Bortles at QB.

    Winners:

    Patriots- *sigh* Brady wants to just blow away ALL THE RECORDS.

    Browns- Now have a top 3 line in the AFC. Love how they used loop holes in order to make an NBA trade. Worst case for them is a heavy run team with Osweiler for one year while a QB at 12 sits for a year. Don't be surprised if the Browns go all talent core this draft and they have a USC QB starting for them in 2018. Only his name won't be Kessler. Or will Trubisky fall that far if the Broncos, Jets, and other teams try the re-tread/unproven-but-in-league/Romo route at QB? I can't remember the last time there was three positive headlines for the Browns in one day.

    I might be crazy, but I think I'd rather that the Pats had resigned Logan Ryan at 3 years/$30 million than signing Stephan Gilmore at 5/65, with 40 guaranteed. Gillmore is a better CB, yes, but Logan knows the system, and we could use that extra 35 to try and extend Butler, sign Hightower and keep Marty Bennett.

    We have lots of cap space this year, but the Titans deal to Ryan came in cheaper than I expected and I'd rather have seen us bring him back.

  10. It appears Martellus Bennett is headed back to the NFCN. Reports have Bennett landing in Green Bay.

    This partially explains the breakdown in the Packers' negotiations with Jared Cook.
