    Only guess is scheme versatility.

    We still might draft a guy like Nix to be a 2 down guy, but those big bodies don't have much value on 3rd and long.

    Dolphins showing their impatience for building the right way again.

    Sounds like they'll land Brandon Albert (around 10M a year) and Luis Delmas.

    Not surprised.. Seems to be an ongoing theme for them. Albert is being overpaid.

    Bird is barely special teams capable, no loss whatsoever, hard to believe he played ILB in the NFL. Schilling never seemed liked in SD he was let go more than a balloon.

    How much money did we have last year in FA? I feel like we had less last year than we do now.
    If that is true, I'm confident we can get a nice haul of quality back ups in addition to one or 2 higher level talents (not over the top 8-9 million per year players but an earl Mitchell and a quality CB)

    Sounds like Raiders are making a play for Revis.

    @RapSheet: The #Raiders are, in fact, in it for Darrelle Revis, per source (@VicTafur said). #Browns may be a bit more attractive to trade with, though

    Andre Caldwell stays in Denver, signs a 2 year worth up to $3.45M deal.

    If thats what it takes to sign Andrew Hawkins, Telesco should already have targeted him. He's a name that's really gaining interest, especially if the Patriots lose Edelman, they will target Andrew Hawkins. Let's go Telesco! Bring Andrew Watkins to SD!

    Unfortunate, I was hoping with all the restructuring we did last night, and also get another restructure or two done today, we could of gave him a Ladarius Webb type contract at 6 years/$50M, where his cap hit his first year would be just under $3M. No problem giving him that given his inconsistencies at times, but if you watched that SNF game between Indy and Denver, where he lineup up over Demaryius Thomas all game, he completely shut him out until the 4th qtr, where he gave up his first catch on a slant route for about 4-5 yards.

    Oh well, I don't expect us to sign anyone today really.

    He would be a great pickup for any team, but I doubt we could afford him

    Would prove that Revis absolutely is in it for the money and not much else. Also, he's yet to play on a team that can get productive pass-rush. The Raiders should be able to create that with the cap-space and draft picks they have, but then they also are looking like they may let their most productive pass-rusher walk, passed on Lotulelei for a corner in the draft last year, and have already more than questionable let their franchise LT walk to replace him with an overpaid, oft-injured RT-turned-guard. So little is guaranteed.

    Revis can't cover Gates, KA, and Green all at the same time. So I'm not really worried.

    Also Schefter seems to think that Mitchell is going to sign with the Phins for $4m per... yeah... Good riddance. The guy is an older version of Lissemore. Certainly not worth $4m/yr.

    I want the chargers to try to get ware but it's a pipe dream. I don't know who in the world is coming to visit but whatever
