    With FA beginning soon, there has already been some notable cuts and releases. Just to name a few,

    Hester not coming back to Bears

    Bailey cut by Denver

    Sproles out in New Orleans


    Should be an interesting off-season.

    Chiefs Free Agents

    - Brandon Albert to the Dolphins
    - Geoff Schwarts probably not coming back
    - Jon Asamoah probably not going back
    - Dexter McCluster NOT coming back
    - Tyson Jackson will most likely resign

    Should be interesting to see what they do, that is 3 guys who all started on the Oline this past year.

    Several reports emerging that Asamoah is going to sign with ATL. Report: Jon Asamoah will land with Falcons | ProFootballTalk

    Other reports are that Ravens DE Arthur Jones is close to an agreement with the Colts and ARI WR Andre Roberts is going to sign with the Redskins. I like the Roberts move for the Redskins. He's been a very productive #2 receiver opposite Larry Fitzgerald and he and Garcon should put up good numbers no matter who is under center in DC.

    I've heard Cleveland is interested in this guy. Don't know much about him.

    Im interested to see how the WR market plays out.

    Tate, Decker, Edelman, Holmes, and rumor is Steve Smith and Nicks will be looking for new teams.

    I'm more interested in the D-backs that are available:
    Tracy Porter
    Aqib Talib
    Domique Rodgers-Cromartie
    Antonio Cromartie

    And the strong chance that Darrelle Revis will be cut by the Bucs sometime this week.

    As a Vikings fan I'm interested to see who they pursue, because CB is a major concern that needs to be addressed this off-season.

    Decker is going to get overpaid. Call it the Manning Effect. He's a decent receiver with inflated stats. Hakeem Nicks wants a long term deal, which won't happen. He'll get a one year deal that will allow him to prove he can still b a healthy and productive player.

    The market on corners has been set by the Dolphins and Packers. Miami gave Brent Grimes a four year deal worth 32 mil and Sam Shields got four years and 39 mil from Green Bay. Going into the offseason they were generally regarded as the top FA options at their position. And don't forget Vontae Davis - he and Talib will probably receive comparable deals.

    Lamarr Houston to Chicago. That's a decent pickup for them.

    No surprise. 31 years old, hasn't played great since 2011, huge cap hit. For once the Cowboys made the smart long term decision.

    It's time for Jerry Jones to die. Sorry if that is crude, but that franchise will continue to head south as long as he is alive. Seriously **** you Jerry.

    Contract details released? I like it at the right price. He's more of a run stuffer than a pass rusher so I would hope they didn't break the bank.

    I get that the Pats have had success in the past with kind of a no-name receiving corps, but at some point, especially after this past year, don't you have to pony up a little bit? I mean, Edelman was their most consistent receiver this year. Amendola and Gronk can't stay on the field, but Edelman was starting to look like Welker 2. I can't figure out why they wouldn't bring him back.

    5 years $35 million. That's not too bad. And he plays right at around 300lbs, iirc. they might move him around on the line some.

    $15 million guaranteed, $21 million in first three years of deal.

    The run defense just got much, much better.
