RT @theMMQB: It's no—for now—on Manning in Indy, but @AlbertBreer says a role for him still makes sense: https://t.co/bcxvIx00Wu https://t.…

@David_J_Beckett Yes, absolutely. Would think 80 gets nod in that scenario.

@dpeezyjr Hi Dewayne. If all five are active, who are your inactives? Don't believe they have the spot.

So who is Nick Caserio and why is he so important to the Patriots? Let me tell you a story: https://t.co/dPloj65wpY

@PatsFanCam the tweet you responded to told you where to look...

Homeboy is fighting off tears through various points because of crowd estimates. Big boy stuff. https://t.co/Y42S0sppM1

Irsay: "We don't ever celebrate a firing. Ryan (Grigson) was a good man."

Pass the dutchy pon da left hand side

My feed is a mess of Sean Spicer and Jim Irsay. Tough to keep up with what's what.

Irsay asked if he talked to Gruden: "Not about the head coaching position." Concedes he did consult with Gruden on the organization.

RT @pjneal25: @jerrythornton1 @PatMcAfeeShow much like a plague #deflategate has taken more from the outside than inside the fortress

I miss you too. So tune in to @WEEI's NFL Sunday. We'll be back together from 9-2 https://t.co/YYKoUR4rm4

For the last several years all I've heard is that the Colts players love Pagano. The team was just built poorly

RT @Colts: "Chuck is our coach for 2017." - @JimIrsay

RT @Colts: Jim Irsay confirms Peyton Manning is NOT in the picture for the GM position.

Getting a ⭐️ player back involved in ur franchise following retirement is v-solid idea. Making 'em GM w/ no experience? The opposite of that

RT @AdamSchefter: Chuck Pagano is the Colts coach for 2017, per Jim Irsay.

Colts owner Jim Irsay: "For 2017, Chuck is our coach."

Chuck Pagano is the Colts coach for 2017, per Jim Irsay.


Brady, Mankins, Gostkowski, and maybee Wilfork

    Three tags instead of one

    Currently, a team can put either a franchise tag (average of the top five salaries at his position) or a transition tag (average of the top ten salaries at his position) on any one player on the club to protect the team from losing the unrestricted free agent. If the NFL gets to an uncapped year in 2010 and 2011, teams will have use of one franchise tag and two transition tags. So not only would none of the young players with less than six years of service be free, but now the top three players who are eligible for free agency on a roster can be protected.

    If this situation existed in 2008, a team like Pittsburgh -- which used a transition tag to retain OT Max Starks -- could have also tagged Alan Faneca with either a transition or franchise tag if it so desired. If every team in the league used one or two tags, not even the three they would possess, it could take another 40 quality free agents off the market.

    There is speculation teams would not overuse this trigger because so many of their quality younger players would not be free to depart.


    Uncapped years would actually limit free agency

    there are THREE tags............ok? and they're not worthless

    Playoff restrictions

    If the league gets to the point of an uncapped year, people are afraid that deep-pocket owners such as Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder will come in and buy a championship. If the aggressive owners already have playoff teams, there will be restrictions on how much money they can spend. The formula may slide with the number of players they lose in free agency, but the plan is designed to not let teams buy a championship. The truth is, the first two triggers aren't going to leave too many players available to acquire anyway.


    there WILL be restrictions on the money they can spend on FA's........ok?

    any other questions?
