    Justin Smiley agrees to five-year deal with Miami Dolphins



    http://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/defau...=1036034&mode=

    Hes a pretty solid player but was asking for too much money considering his position (Niners management doesnt like to spend a lot of money on OG)...having an off year last season didnt help either...

    Great trade for the Saints. They've had ****-ty LBs there for a while. Guys like Fujita, Sanle, and Simoneau are back-ups on most teams. I don't know if any of them would make our team as special teamers. Siler might be better than them all. Vilma gives them a cornerstone at LB. McKenzie is good, and their DEs are studs, as long as one of them gets back from that shooting injury.

    I've read the Raiders might be signing Kwame Harris and Gibril Wilson. Just a rumor right now though.

    Anyone think this free agency period is going to be absolutely INSANE?

    Good for the Browns, but they run a 3-4, so is he going to DE now? He's 6'4'' 315, so he would fit there really well. With Kamerion Wimbley, Andra Davis, and Robaire Smith, their front 7 is looking better. If Big Ted Washingtion and Willie McGinest can give them another decent year, that's actually a contending team. Too bad Derek Anderson might get traded, and Soulja Boy Winslow II wants a new contract. Just when things looked up in the Dawg Pound...

    Marcus Stroud, Shaun Rogers, Kris Jenkins, all might be moving


    http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news;_ylt=AgKJKInHCKVXZOKWos81eLGG2bYF?slug=heavyweighttradebaitdtss&prov=tsn&type=lgns


    Stroud?! Stupid Raiders. You pay all that for Tommy Kelly, when these guys and Corey Williams are available. The market isn't dry, why overpayso much? So damn dumb.

    Here's a Charger relevant one; Chiefs in full rebuilding mode.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3267558

    Ty Law is a name corner, maybe can switch to safety like many old corners do (Aenaes Williams, Troy Vincent, Rod Woodson)? Kendrell Bell is a 3-4 LB from Pittsburgh days. Welbourn can play both G or T. Many quality players floating this offseason.
