@ryanmassey @michaelFhurley I just want to get you to react, baby boy. And presto....you did. Have a great weekend https://t.co/F53czymEq2

The #Vikings announced that interim OC Pat Shurmur is their full-time coordinator, a job he’s been doing for 2 weeks.

A picture only you, Andy -- not even my mother -- would describe as "cute!" https://t.co/mIklAEbjRq

@bruceallen Get some chicken soup to Green Bay, stat.

Let's make America "all positive" again! https://t.co/WR8bzkqlJh

RT @Jim_Hickey: @Gary_Tanguay The Island of Misfit Toys is a more likely landing spot.

@MikeGiardi contact was fine. You can't drive QB for four yards and drag him down long after the ball is gone. Don't need more Carr injuries

Clowney catching a fine for that play is crap. Good luck hitting anybody on defense https://t.co/Jf0LdkiRqG

@patscap Yes, it is no coincidence that Kuechly's uniform number is repeated in the APY.

2015 League Cap =$143.28M. Kuechly signed his $12,359,059 APY deal. 2017 cap projects to be 17% higher. Equivalent deal has $14,491,359 APY

Insane that Pete Morelli didn't notice Clowney dragging Brady down 5 yards after initial contact, long after pass w… https://t.co/9dhuR9L2c7

Fines from last weekend: #Steelers DB Sean Smith fined $24,309 for a nasty hit. #Steelers DE Jadeveon Clowney hit with $18,231 for Brady hit

i have 22,335 friends, nerd. how many do you have, nerd https://t.co/6eyySdXE76

#Patriots list 7 "questionable" for Sunday - #Patriots list 3 "questionable" in final injury report - #Patriots https://t.co/9Qvty5lHbT

RT @RyanHannable: Patriots list 7 players as questionable for AFC championship https://t.co/Nq39A96zKi via @WEEI

you make a really good point. brown IS better than offensive linemen at playing wide receiver. https://t.co/OFBfxdDHY8

RT @KingMonkeyNews: @Gary_Tanguay @CSNNE as the joke goes. Who Is that with Gary the velfie King.

    Miguel (or anyone else):
    Aren't Practice Squad contracts 1 year deals? If that is the case, wouldn't guys like PK Sam, Ray Ventrone, Eric Alexander, and Wesley Britt be free agents? Are they exclusive rights or unrestricted free agents?

    Also, is Santonio Thomas an exclusive rights free agent since he was signed to a contract by the Patriots and he has less than 3 years experience. Much like Bam Childress?

    Practice squad players become street free agents, able to sign with any team, which is why many teams promote PS players to the 53-man roster during Week 17. Doing so makes the PS player an ERFA. Santonio Thomas and Brandon Childress are both ERFAs.
