    Agree completley on Mankins, ditto for WWW.

    Larry Fitzgerald's contract is tricky, he has made all the incentives so IF HE CHOOSES he can opt out of his contract at the end of 2011 and become a free agent. The contract also stipulates that the Cardinals can not franchise NOR TRADE HIM. Now, I'm sure that he woudl agree to a trade to NE, but you would have to re-neogiate a new contract for him and then give Arizona picks. You might be better off just waiting a year until he hits free agency.

    ..you are going to make my post a "leave Merriweather alone" video on youtube, have faith in him and yee shall be rewarded.

    DW - you should go back to whatever cave you were hiding in. The talk of trading for Fitzgerald has its own thread.

    Branch is not 22. He'll be 32 in July. Welker will be 30. Edelman, Tate, and Price will be 25 or younger.

    Your evaluation of Tate is garbage. Price gave us a glimpse of what he should be able to bring to the table next year.

    This draft is better than the 2006 draft. Fitzgerald will cost a lot more to get than Moss did. And you also forgot that Moss took a pay cut in his first year.

    So you are back to seeing the future and being able to tell that there is no sure fire impact DE..

    The Chargers have to figure out who they are keeping.. Floyd, Jackson or Weddle...

    Your talent evaluation skills are what are poop.. but we've all known that for ages.

    Those qualify as "here or there" signings, I'd say. Who is a former Jet that they shelled out for?

    Re: OT: Raider CB ASOMUGHA A FREE AGENT

    I doubt the Pats would pay him, but the Pats would have the best CB combo in the league with him on one side and McCourty on the other. And Bodden coming off the bench.

    I wonder if the Jets will come through on their promise of getting him to line up opposite Revis. It would probably kill their chances of resigning a lot of guys like Holmes, Edwards, and Harris; but I can see Tannebaum doing it.

    Picks? What picks? For what? The guy is a free agent. No picks neccessary. The trade deadline is over for this football year.

    just avoid. draft a younger player and build a long lasting team with 2 picks in each of the first 3 rounds

    Re: OT: Raider CB ASOMUGHA A FREE AGENT

    this makes me jealous ... but since the Jets do not have those picks ... I say they should jettison Homes and Cromartie for him.

    Re: OT: Raider CB ASOMUGHA A FREE AGENT

    Pats will have more critical needs than a 2nd Pro Bowl level CB. that would be awesom sure, but they are likely going to need some help on O Line and perhaps on D Line, those needs will be more pressing

    Re: OT: Raider CB ASOMUGHA A FREE AGENT

    great, except, at what cost?
    anyone know what he was making under his since-voided contract? And what he will be asking for? A ton, I would guess.
    I am not sure I would break the bank for him, given how well McCourty has played, and given the other guys we have, and all of the picks in the upcoming draft.
    I think the DL is more of a concern, and/or an edge rusher.

    Seems like a contract year kind of guy, but I wouldn't complain.

    How much would Asomugha cost per year in a long-term deal? And how does he compare to Revis? I'm really jealous of the way the Jets can put Revis on one guy and pretty much forget about him all game... just look at Wayne last night. It happens just about every week, minus a bad game once or twice a year.
