CIN Gets Johnson
HOU gets Green Ellis and Future Draft Pick
16 Jul 2014 15:48:45
Jimmy Graham's deal is for four years and is worth $40 million, with $21 million guaranteed. Graham will get $13 million in Year 1, which allows him to avoid the franchise tag for 2015, and gives him the flexibility to hit the open market while still in his prime.
16 Jul 2014 15:46:47
Cowboys have informed QB Kyle Orton he'll be released. Now he keeps his signing bonus
02 Jun 2014 14:18:59
Now that Marcus Smith is learning Connor Barwin's position, any chance Barwin moves to Cole's spot and they trade Cole for a pick and cap relief? They already have a lot of cap left but if they are resigning roles, you have cap to do more in the future?
What position does Cole play
Eagles don't need Cole and should release him. Addition by subtraction after planning Cole cuts.
30 May 2014 02:47:15
Now that Jermichael Finley has been medically cleared, any thoughts as to where he might go? I still think he will come back to the Packers
I hope he doesn't return. The guy drops half the passes Rogers targets him with.

Seattle had a pretty good draft. The best thing they did was add depth after losing some very key role players this offseason. But the one thing they did not do was get a true deep threat reciever. Richardson is very good but will play more of a Baldwin/Harvin hybrid role. He has speed and can get open in the slot, he will probably return punts with tate gone. Kevin Norwood could be that guy but not anytime soon.
I think there is a scenario in which Seattle could do this under the circumstances so here's an idea
3 team trade
Seattle gets: WR Josh Gordon
Houston gets: Seattles 2015 3rd rnd pick, WR Doug Baldwin, QB Tavaris Jackson
Cleveland gets: WR Andre Johnson, Seattles 2016 2nd rnd pick that can be turned into a 1st rnd pick based on playing time and priduction
Seattle gets put in a good position. Even if Gordon has to sit out for the year it's ok because Seattle is very deep at the position especially after drafting 2 WR plus having Harvin and Rice healthy and they still have Kearse. Plus Carroll will point Gordon in the right direction and get the most out of him.
even though Gordon is a lot younger, they still get one of the best wr's in the game if not all time. Plus for all they kno Gordon could get another suspension and never be able to play and even if that does happen they get a 2nd rnd pick to invest in another weapon for Johnny football.
Houston knows that Johnson is unhappy, so they let him go and get a decent pick for him with how old he is. They also get a veteran QB in Jackson who can be an average starter until they develop their young QB. They also get Baldwin who has very smart football is
all in all, Seattle takes a gamble that could pay dividends and they end up with one of the best WR groups in the NFL just picture this offense
Seattle seahawks offense
QB: Russell Wilson
RB: Marshall Lynch
TE: Zach Miller
WR: Josh Gordon, Jermaine Kearse
SWR: Percy Harvin, Paul Richardson
WR: Sidney Rice, Kevin Norwood
This could be a deadly offense with an already dominant defense.
Houston is not trading Andre Johnson they would have over 11 million in dead money so no chance they trade him
Josh Gordan is rumored to be suspend for the year in 2014
15 May 2014 10:29:17
Even though I didn't like that Oakland picked Derek Carr when they should of addressed the Tackle position, they had an excellent draft. Mack is going to be the face of that defense for a very long time. But if all fails this year and end up picking in the top 5 again next year, They HAVE to pick a franchise changing QB. Carr will not be that guy. Oakland is going to have the chance to pick either Marcus Mariota, Jameis Winston, and Brent Hundley. If Oakland does lose out on the season and are at the top 5 of the draft, and do not pick up one of those 3 QB's, the whole Oakland management and coaching staff will be fired and someone who knows anything about football will hopefully be running things in Raider Nation
You just got to cool your buns right now and watch what Carr does this season. The worst scenario is if Carr is sort of mediocre but the Raiders somehow manage to win anyway. Moving up in next year's draft to grab one of the top QB's is going to cost big time and there will be plenty of other teams thinking exactly the same thing. What will Oakland do then?
Carr could end up being a very good QB, a lot of teams had him rated behind only Manziel and can get a good OT with a top 5 pick
Winston's dad just said he wint be in the draft for 2 more years
13 May 2014 15:08:38
For the TB draft, C+ overall grade
7. Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M: B Grade
There was a true need at WR, but the jury is out whether getting a Vincent Jackson clone was the best way to go.
38. Austin Seferian-Jenkins, TE, Washington: A- Grade
There are some character issues here but otherwise a very solid pick.
69. Charles Sims, RB, West Virginia: D+ Grade
Even if the plan is to line him up as a slot WR, there were far more important issues to address with this reach.
143. Kadeem Edwards, G, Tennessee State: C+ Grade
Maybe a reach here but TB sorely needed more depth at OG.
149. Kevin Pamphile, OT, Purdue: D Grade
Don't like this pick at all.
185. Robert Herron, WR, Wyoming: A Grade
Finally. A speed slot WR which TB needed. Good value near the bottom of the draft.
You give Charles Sims a D+ his grade should be at lease a B
Tampa Bay should get that D or even less for taking RB Charles Sims early in the 3rd round.
This year's group of running backs ranked very low in the draft. Sims was not projected to be selected until the 4th round or even later. He certainly was not the best player available at this pick and TB had no need whatsoever at this position.
RB Doug Martin is healthy and will start. RB Bobby Rainey and RB Mike James were excellent filling in last year for TB. RB Jeff Demps and RB Mike Smith are young and waiting for snaps. All are very talented.
Give the Bucs a D for ignoring the many other weaknesses on their roster.
13 May 2014 14:38:42
Tampa Bay trading partner?
The Buccaneers seem to be loaded at the RB position and either Mike James or Bobby Rainey could be the odd man out at the end of training camp. TB could surely use some defensive help backing up ILB Mason Foster.
There are several teams out there like Baltimore and Jax with possible questions at the RB position. What ILB would be a fair match in a trade for one of these TB running backs?
Bucs are screwed with too much depth at RB. Other teams know this and will just wait for the roster cuts that will eventually come. No need to offer up anything in trade.
12 May 2014 02:19:15
So what does everyone think of their teams' drafts?
An eagles fan for my sins.
1) Marcus Smith olb - need a pass rush desperately. Probably a bit early and going from a 4-3 de to 3-4 olb GRADE C+
2) Jordan Matthews wr - Love the pick albeit we could have got Lattimer and Tripp without trading. GRADE A
3) Josh Huff wr -Hate this pick albeit great special teams coverage skills and an okay wr3/wr4. GRADE D-
4a) Jaylen Watkins cb/s - desperately need help in the secondary. Thought we could do better. GRADE C
4b) Taylor Hart de - great value can see him backing up Cox + Thornton straight away. GRADE B+
5) Ed Reynolds s - great value can see him being a starter in 2015. GRADE B+
7) Beau Allen nt - with only Logan a nt on our 53 a great value pick. GRADE B+
Not sure if allowed to be included?
Traded Bryce Brown rb for a 4th (unlikely but could be a 3rd) round pick in 2015 draft. GRADE A+
Traded for Darren Sproles rb for this years 5th round pick. Admittedly not the youngest but what a weapon for Chip + Foles GRADE A+.
For my Packers, I give it a B+
HaHa Clinton Dix- Really fell into our laps at 21, great pick and fills a huge need
Davante Adams- Ted Thompson has a history of drafting good receivers in the second round (See Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, and Greg Jennings) and he is next in line
Khyri Thornton and Richard Rodgers- Both I felt were a little bit of reaches and Rodgers is a project at TE
Carl Bradford- A good value pick that can play both inside and outside LB, gets after the passer and provides depth
Corey Linsley- I heard this guy squats a small house. He's an actual center and will battle with JC Tretter for playing time in camp
Jared Abbrederis- Absolutely love the pick. He's a good route runner and adjusts well to poorly thrown balls (See Joel Stave) and can be a KR/PR as well
Demetri Goodson- An OK pick, kind of undersized and raw, plus he's old too, but adds depth.
Jeff Janis- Another receiver, kind of like a Jordy Nelson type receiver but not as NFL ready.
The Janis pick at the end kind of make me worry if the Pack can re-sign both Nelson and Cobb. I'm still wondering why they didn't draft a true ILB but other than that a pretty good draft overall.
Kyle fuller - A
ego Ferguson- C he was a reach that early
will sutton- B+ if he keeps weight good he is a beast
Kadeem Carey- A great backup RB who was a stud in college
Brock Vereen B a solid pick that could start over conte
David Fales- A perfect fit in Trestman offense
Pat O'Donnel- A they needed a punter badly
Leno- B- they took him based on athleticism which isn't a bad thing for 7th rounder
Signing Christian Jones A+ don't know how he went I drafted dude is a beast.
Thanks Bears and Packers, was glad my eagles draft isn't the only one here now.
To packers fan Christian Jones failed a drug test at the combine.
Think his a talented lb who can play inside or outside in any scheme.
STL Rams Draft
Greg Robinson A- Boring pick but is a monster and fits the NFC West perfectly
Aaron Donald A+ Filthiest DLine in NFL got filthier. Another NFC West pick
Lamarcus Joyner B had to trade up to get him, but plays a position of need
Tre Mason C+ More NFC west football, but RB wasn't their biggest need
Mo Alexander B+ Another position of need, will conribute, and has potential
EJ Gaines A Position of need, great value, hometown guy. Yes please.
Garrett Gilbert C He could be a surprise and be ok, but I thought they would get a better QB.
Christian Bryant B+ Would've gone lots higher if he wasn't hurt, fills need
Mitchell Van Dyk? Uhm. Ok. Good pick I guess. Out of Portland St. Idk.
Michael Sam A Great story, hometown, SEC DPOY, would've gone lots higher if teams weren't worried about him.
Demetrius Rhaney? See MVD. Good for him for being drafted
Signed Marcus Roberson A+ Would've gone 2nd round if he wasn't hurt and had off the field issues. CB was needed. Great signing.
Great draft class. Hopefully their WRs develop, and Bradford plays good. I'm more worried about the latter. Givens will be good, and Britt (great signing), will be even better. Austin is electrifying and could turn into a pro bowler, and Bailey and Quick have a ton of potential. Next years offseason plan is simple. Lock up Robert Quinn. Draft QB if Bradford plays poorly. Draft a WR if they don't develop. If the WRs develop and Bradford plays good, draft a WR just to take next step towards championship. Give this team 2 years, and they will be serious contenders.
10 May 2014 16:09:40
Looking forward to earlier start (5pm).
Thought Marcus Smith was a bit early, albeit like the player.
Love Jordan Matthews albeit we might have got similar talented wr without trading up.
To put it politely not happy with Huff pick.
Anybody heard of the new jets cb, as I haven't heard of him.
After a couple of unusually sensible picks, the Jets reverted to their typical method of locating a guy that nobody else had rated higher than the 7th round and drafted him in the 3rd.
09 May 2014 18:26:01
I think Raiders picked one of the best players I'm this draft and did an excellent job. I think today should be focusing the first few picks on offense to help Shaub and co.
36- OT Cyrus kouandjio, Alabama
67- WR Davant Adams, Fresno St.
trade down to mid rnd and pick up a 5th rnd pick
mid rnd- ILB Christian Jones, Florida St.
Mid rnd- QB Taj Boyd, Clemson
if Oakland can leave the draft with these players or players of this caliber, they will be one of the biggest winners out of all the teams next to St. Louis and Minnesota.
09 May 2014 09:24:12
Seattle did the right thing by picking up an extra pick in the draft. This is still a deep draft and they can grab a few keys guys tomorrow. Here's what they should do
2nd rnd (*trades)
40 (via MIN)- OT Cyrus kouandjio, Alabama
*51- WR Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt
(Trade our 2nd rnd, 4th rnd, and a future 4th to Chicago)
108 (via MIN) - OG Gabe Jackson, Miss. St.
140 (via OAK)- ST Will Sutton, Arizona St.
With such a deep class, Seattle is able to pick up these key players that will help fill holes left by guys from free agency and with Seattle going to be a little financially strapped due to paying our core guys these next few seasons ( Wilson, Wagner, Okung, Baldwin, Avril, not to mention already paying the Legion of Boom) they pick up very talented players that will only help Seattle get better
06 May 2014 20:41:00
What are the odds clowney makes a Bo-Wallace like slide down the board?
(Draft day reference)
Was Bo Wallace the qb or rb I have a terrible memory?
Remember defense player was Mack.
Thought film was hit and miss.
Anyway hoping eagles draft Bobby Bouchet ;) we need a passrush.
It's Bo Callahan
That will be JOHNNY FOOTBALL in the draft
05 May 2014 20:01:59
Rams take Johnny Manziel with the 2nd overall pick
Rams trade 1st round, 2nd round, 4th round pick for Raiders' 5th overall pick and draft Mike Evans
If they want Evans they don't need to go that high
Yes they do^
05 May 2014 12:41:01
Morris Claiborne for Quinton Coples
04 May 2014 15:22:39
If i'm the Eagles GM, i'm trading Up in this draft! Send nxt yrs first, this yrs first, and a second. moving up into the top 10 opens up so many options for the Eagles. All of which help. If they move up high enough, they can get Watkins, Mack, johnny football. or not as high, they take Barr, countless options, they just need to move up into the top 10
Philly picks 22 and in order to move up to where Johny football will go you will need
1st-2014, 2nd-2014, 3rd-2014, 1st -2015, 3rd-2015
You have to trade up into the top 5 to get Mack or Watkins
04 May 2014 13:30:59
Cowboys pick up fifth-year option on LT Tyron Smith
Giants exercised 5th-year option for 2015 on CB Prince Amukamara.
Broncos have formally picked up 5th-year option on Von Miller's contract. Would pay him $9. 754 million in 2015.
By me .
04 May 2014 13:29:29
Vince Young's agent confirms he's signing with the Browns.
By me ,
04 May 2014 13:27:04
Redskins exercise fifth-year option on LB Ryan Kerrigan
By me .
04 May 2014 13:24:35
Browns have exercised the option on Phil Taylor's contract for the fifth year.
By me .
03 May 2014 02:37:48
Jacksonville fans: what are the odds that Blackmon is released?
Unlike Hernandez, who's gang friends were an hour away, Blackmon has a chance to escape his past, while flourishing with a top qb
I guess my thought is, could Blackmon be a patriot?
30 Apr 2014 00:09:39
My Mock draft
1. Houston Clowney-DE. You don't pass up on the best defensive prospect in years when there are no franchise QB's in the draft
2. St. Louis Robinson-OT. If you are sticking with Bradford you need to keep him on his feet
3. Jacksonville Mack-LB. Jaguars are in need of a complete rebuild and a talent like Mack can shore up thr defence
4. Cleveland Watkins-WR. The Browns need a WR and there is none better this year than Watkins, picking up a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round
5. Oakland Manziel-QB. I know they have Schaub but they need a replacement and let him learn for the first few games before taking over
6. Atlanta Matthews-OT. If you give Ryan and his targets time they will destroy you and using later picks to shore up the D will put the Falcons back in the playoffs
7. Tampa Bay Evans-WR. Teamed with Jackson will give this team a potent offence
8. Minnesota Bortles-QB. They need a new QB to help build around and Bortles has a good upside over every other QB
9. Buffalo Lewan-OT. The Bills can move Glenn back to RT where he is more comfortable
10. Detroit Gilbert-CB. The Lions love young CB's and have been linked to one in past mock years, this time they finally get one
11. Tennesee Ebron-TE. Gives the Titans another target
12. New York G Donald-DT. They need help on the interior of the Dline and Donald will give them that
13. St. Louis Clinton-Dix-S. The Rams may go for a WR but may still get a good one in the 2nd round so helping out the defence would benefit them
14. Chicago Pryor-S. They need help in the defensive secondary and with Dix gone Pryor will due
15. Pittsburgh Mosley-LB. Steelers don't let talent go no matter what the position and will take the best player available
16. Dallas Jernigan-DT. Where to start with the Cowboys? A good run stoper will help
17. Baltimore Denard-CB. The Ravens will take a defensive player no matter what the position and utilize him in their scheme
18. New York J Beckam-WR. The Jets continue to build an offence for whichever QB is playing and he will complement Decker well
19. Miami Martin-OG. Pick a spot on the OLine and that's where they start. For me a trade down would be best but there are no trades in this mock draft
20. Arizona Shazier-LB. They need help form their LB's and Shazier is the best available
21. Green Bay Ealy-DE. They need help at DE and LB and Ealy can help at both
22. Philadalphia Cooks-WR. They need a WR and he is the best at this point
23. K. C Su'a Filo-OG. They need help at guard and will probably get him later in the 1st rd but no trades
24. Cinncinati Verratt-CB. The Bengals could use help at CB and have some options. I think Verratt is the best available
25. San Diego Nix-DT. The Chargers need help stopping the run
26. Cleveland Fuller-CB. I think the Browns can still get a quality QB later on so filling other needs like CB would be the best option
27. New Orleans Roby-CB. Another team with CB needs
28. Carolina Benjamin-WR. No explanation needed.
29. New England Hageman-DL. They need help and the Patriots can get the most out of anyone
30. San Francisco Lee-WR. An in state WR to complement Boldin
31. Denver Ford-DE/OLB. Another pass rusher will help their defence
32. Seattle Bitonio-OG. Start adding depth and OG is a good place to start
Clowney is so overrated rather have Mack
He has the best talent in this draft by a long shot he just has a bad attitude. Talent comparison is 10-8 in favour of Clowney and 10-8 in favour of Mack when it comes to attitude
People are trying to trade for the 1st pick to draft Clowney not Mack
What I would like to see from Denver based on team needs is to go after Ryan Shazier from OSU as the #1 target, if he's gone and Fuller and Gilbert are gone (which is almost guaranteed), I hope they trade out and get some value later in the draft. That's just what I'd personally like to see
Clowney is straight garbage.
Clowney does not care about football he wants the money. he will be just like J. Russell
Was wondering where Anthony Barr olb UCLA is?
Think he has potential to be a top ten pick.
Admittedly I find it impossible to do mocks and I am probably blind as a bat and Barr is in the mock.
Barr will not be a top 10 pick -- best bet bid to late first or 2nd round
Anthony Barr rankings on draftboards. (Admittedly doesn't mean that's where he will be drafted).
Walter Football 7th
Cbs Sports 11th
Draft Countdown 4th
Maybe you're Kiper/Mayock/ etc?
Guessing not the case and these sites have "experts" albeit they could be right/wrong just as much as me, you and uncle tom cobley and all.
Your right I forgot Barr, he will be a top 15 pick probably going to PITT with Mosley going to GB and Ealy dropping out
27 Apr 2014 15:14:27
#14 darqueze dennard cb
#51 scott crichton de
#82 trent murphy olb
#117 daniel mccullers dt
#156 max bullough ilb
#186 caraun reid dt
#191 tajh boyd qb
I think bears take cb dennard with the consideration of moving tillman to safety. I don't think its a good play to have 2 completely 2 new safetys starting together and 1 of them being a rookie. Plis u can add a few more years to tillman to play at safety.
I could see these picks happening
Really nice mock draft. Especially the idea of tillman/dennard. And tajh boyd coming in to learn behind cutler, smart move
Cant see DE picked until late rounds. They already signed 4 of them. DT & S need to be top two picks. Only exception is Justin Gilbert if he is left. He is a flat out playmaker. Good rest of the draft tho
Garbage; no ends will be picked. No quarterback picked. A running back and a safety definitely will be picked. Tillman not changing positions. The first pick will be donald; Dix; Pryor; Hageman or trade down for more picks. My mock would be saftey Pryor 1 then saftey Buchanon 2. In the 3rd D tackle Quarals. In the 4th middle line backer Borrow. 5th round Justin Gaffney runningback. 6th rounders could be corner back Belue. And runningback Crowell.
25 Apr 2014 21:25:12
The Cleveland Browns have named Dr. Jamil Northcutt as director of player engagement.
So? The Browns still need to draft talent
Agreed, if we don't draft talent this year I can't watch it any more PERIOD! My son has been watching bad football his entire life and he's 13, I'm tired of sticking up for a team who doesn't really want to win. Hear, I'm going to help you. For free, take Manziel at (4) and Lee at (26) and OSU's Hyde with the next pick and the town will lover your new offense. Keep the group together for a while and you will win.
25 Apr 2014 21:22:19
The Dallas Cowboys have been cleared of an injury report violation, despite being in very clear breach of the regulation.
25 Apr 2014 21:20:55
The Buffalo Bills cheerleaders, known as the Buffalo Jills, have suspended operations. It is believed to be in response to a lawsuit filed by 5 former members alleging they were paid below state minimum wage levels.
25 Apr 2014 21:18:42
Packers assistant offensive line coach Joel Hilgenberg has resigned, stating that he wanted to spend more time with his family, the club announced on Friday.
24 Apr 2014 22:31:23
Former Bears QB Caleb Hanie has signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys.
24 Apr 2014 22:28:40
There are no shortage of execs in the league who believe the Texans best odds of trading out of 1st overall is w/ Atlanta to get Clowney.
I heard if they trade down to six and Khalil Mack isn't available, they're going QB (Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel).
