    NFL FA

    Thought i would start a thread about some of the FA's and some of the guys that have been cut, i just saw the Chargers let Neal go (their FB) and all i have to say is if the Packers are not talking to him right now i would be veery disapointed


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    what is it with packers fans??!!?? The packers NEVER go after the big free agents on the market. As Mike and Mike discussed yesterday, the last big free agent they picked up was Reggie White. They aren't going to go after Neal or Michael Turner or any other big name guy who isnt named brett favre.

    Neal started to show signs of decline this year, although he was hurt so.. He's also 37. I think part of it is Norv not using him as much, but Neal was money on the goal line and short yardage, and his blocking ability for LT was really critical.

    Charles Woodson...

    But they also don't need to. Got to the NFC Championship by drafting smart and holding on to necessary talent. No need to spend big $ on FA busts.

    Sage to the Vikings would be sweet.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    They would have to give up a 1st and 3rd round pick to get him. (not inlcuding the salary they would have to pay.) Seems like a steep price for a QB who had 1 good year.

    Sounds like it's all over anyway. Anderson signed with the Browns.

    Re: NFL FA

    Chiefs have way too many needs right now and for some reason I don't see them making a big splash in FA either. Carl will probably find a way to mess up the draft too like he always does. Probably do something stupid like drafting a TE or DL with their 1st rounder because "he was the most talented guy on the board" despite having depth or a pro-bowl player already at one of those positions.

    It's a joke that the FA period started at midnight and there's guys that have deals as soon as it opens. I hope the Chiefs nut up and pull the trigger on some OL and CB's

    Its actually just starting. They sign him so they can trade him and get compensated a 1st and 3rd round pick (mandatory). If they didn't they could lose him and get nothing in return. It's a roll of the dice but if they sign him for lower salary some teams take the draft pick hits.
