And They're Off...

Correll Buckhalter is going to be a Denver Bronco. Good for him, bad for us. Maybe. If losing him pushes Big Red to take a RB early in the draft then maybe it is a good thing in the long run. I wish Buck all the luck in the world. Good guy. Tough as nails.

UPDATE --- Buck is just going to visit Denver. We'll see what happens. ---

All the Stacy Andrews stuff from the probably gonna turn out to be right on the money. Could be some action with him on Friday.

I know there is some talk about Jason Brown and TJ Houshmandzadeh, but I'm hearing that those are false reports and media speculation. I read somewhere that TJ wants 10 MIL a year. No thank you for that price. Cut that in half and I might be interested, but I'm not even sure at that point.

I carefully went over the FA list this evening after all the late cuts and re-signings. What a bunch of dogs and really old dogs. I can't believe how many 33, 34, and 35 year old guys are amongst the best players available. Joe Banner is probably having nightmares about being forced to sign some 37-year old player to a 3-year deal. The horror...the horror.

Sounds like Tra is likely to leave at this point. He is a convenient solution at LT, but I have to tell you that his performance in the postseason really bugged me. He really struggled at times in the NFC-CG. There is a part of me that wants Todd at LT. We can figure something out at RT.

No word on Dawk. I still expect him to stay, but I have to admit that I'm shocked the deal isn't done. I'm wondering if he wants to test the market to see just how much money is out there.

We have a new mock draft posted on the website:

I'll pick up the pace now that we aren't just speculating. :)
