He should be higher than where he was ranked at 12, but let’s not get carried away, DeMarcus.
Todd plan is to re-work the deals of Tony Romo, DeMarcus Ware, and Miles Austin. While re-working their deals would provide temporary relief, it would give each player a higher cap number in future years.
I think it’s probably safe to call Spears a bust at this point. The Cowboys also have free agent DE’s Stephen Bowen and Jason Hatcher.
The knock on Bennett is that he likes the luxuries that being an NFL player affords him, but doesn’t like doing what it takes to be great at his job. This is a contract year for Bennett, so maybe Cowboys fans will see his best this year.
Don’t do it, Dan. Keep repeating the following mantra – “We’re not competing this year. We’re not competing this year. We’re not competing this year.” Franklin turns 31 in August, and is going to get paid. I understand that a 3-4 defense without a good NT is a bad thing (and Aubrayo Franklin is good), but resist your urges, Skins. Think youth.
Here’s the list Orakpo was peeved about. I think he has a right to be disappointed not being in the top 10, but it shouldn’t have been a huge surprise. If you look at the top 10, those guys are all excellent pass rushers, and Cameron Wake aside, have all been doing it much longer. However, for Orakpo not to receive a single vote when guys like Chris Long did is a little ridiculous.
The Skins suddenly have a lot of shrimpy speedy guys that can stretch the field. Whenever the discussion of the best WR corps in the NFC East comes up, the first sentence is usually something like “I like we can immediately throw out the Redskins.” However, they drafted a few guys in the later rounds, and if one or two of them pan out, the Skins could be improved there.
Personally, I thought Shanny did one of the worst head coaching jobs in the league last year. He has some ground to make up.
Love the comment from “AusEagle” in the comment section: “Does he go into the HOF as a 49er, Eagle (Highly Unlikley) or Cowboy?” It’s a great question. There are bad feelings between Owens and every team he ever played with for more than one season. I’d have to guess the 49ers.
Clayton was one of the rookies that impressed me during camp last offseason. He could see a bigger role this season, likely as a nickle LB.
While complimentary of Joseph’s game, Tommy doesn’t seem to be a huge fan of the fit.
Kinda figured that one out a few seconds after I saw Alex Henery’s name pop up on the scroller during the draft. The interesting tidbit here though is that Akers’ agent said he’d likely seek employment elsewhere in the NFC East.
Good read here by Ohm.
Obviously, the Giants are better off with Osi, than without him. His FF numbers speaks for itself – He makes plays. Add in the fact that Mathias Kiwanuka and Dave Tollefson are free agents, and Osi’s presence becomes that much more important. Giants fans just have to hope he’s not going to be a turd about his more-than-fair contract.
Not surprising in the least that he’d feel that way. Surprising that he’d say so.
In related news, Prince approves of New York legalizing gay marriage. I kiiiiiiiiid, I kiiiiiid. Kudos to Prince for being secure enough in his masculinity to make such an admission. He has inspired me to do the same. Ready? I have a cat. His name is Butters. I love Butters and Butters loves me. And that’s OK. Anyone else?
