    Deal done apparently......

    The Chargers have reached a four-year agreement with LT Jared Gaither.

    Possibly..

    But they NEED Manning. They need someone who is going to fill those empty seats in Miami and someone they can market heavily and win. Manning can do all those things. So if they bring in Manning i see them drafting Tannehill, Sherman is down there and knows him well too, so it will work out as a successor to Manning.

    Tebow makes sense as well if Manning is signed in Denver. Tebow they can market heavily but I don't see Miami winning a whole lot with him.

    Awesome news on Jared also.

    Signs are looking good for Mario Williams in Buffalo, but there’s no done deal yet.
    Williams remains in Buffalo this afternoon after having dinner with potential future teammates and coaches last night, and he has taken both a visit of the Bills’ facilities and a physical, according to reporters in Buffalo.
    Perhaps more importantly, Williams has brought his fiancee to Buffalo. Paul Peck, a sportscaster at WIVB-TV in Buffal, reports that Williams picked up his fiancee at the airport and then headed back toward the Bills’ facilities. If Williams wants his fiancee to see Buffalo, that would indicate he thinks there’s a good chance they’re going to be living there.
    However, a league source cautions to PFT that a deal is not done.
    So it remains to be seen whether the Bills will succeed in their quest to make a big splash in free agency, nearly 24 hours after the best defensive player on the board made the trip to Buffalo.

    I know Hardwick, Gaither, Meachem not super sexy, but wondering how many teams secured better players in the first 21 hours.

    AP
    Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports that theBengals have scheduled a free agent visit with running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
    Green-Ellis’ market has been underwhelming thus far. This is his first known free agent meeting.
    The 27-year-old’s primary assets are ball security and short-yardage efficiency. Green-Ellis lacks big-play ability, and doesn’t help much in the passing game.
    In Cincinnati, Green-Ellis would complement undersized but elusive Bernard Scott. The Bengals would likely also supplement the position in the draft.

    Ok just looked over at CJ presser and it had 8 years, BUT the scrolling text still was saying 7 years. Thought that would have been fixed by now...

    Jacksonville's new owner has publicly said he wants Tebow. When Manning signs with Denver, Tebow will be traded to Jax before the draft is over. I doubt any team but Jax who is simply trying to sell tickets, would give up anything for him
