    Lol @ the Broncos

    I hope that was Dumervil's way of saying "**** you, Elway!"

    And quite frankly, I'm fine with players holding out for better contracts now. Not too long ago, I would have been bad mouthing any player that had years left on his contract and then decided to hold out. They would have been perceived as the greedy bad guy.

    But this year it seems like all these teams are not honoring the contracts that they signed these players to by releasing them, or forcing them to restructure, rather than letting the player finish out the contract because of what it does to their cap. So how is that fair?

    Don't worry.

    Signing a WR to a big money free agent contract only works on the Play station.

    Didn't you say something about burning Minnisota to the ground if this happened?

    So Jennings from the Pack to the Vikings

    Welker from the Brady to Manning

    Woodhead from Pats to Chargers

    And Possibly Ed Reed from the Ravens to the Texans and potentially Dwight Freeny from the Colts to the Pats.

    This is going to be an interesting 2013 season indeed.

    They were warned.

    Honestly, I just find it kind of hilarious how the Vikings are constantly reduced to trying to steal Packers, because they can't build a team themselves. It's fairly pathetic. If I were a Vikings fan, I'd have to feel pretty embarrassed.

    Let's not get carried away. It's not like it's Brady who went to Denver.

    Of course they will. They haven't stopped since that play.

    But how will you burn a place with so many lakes?

    Hey, man. I may have warned them, but I'm not going to give my secrets away.

    Heard that TMZ reported that a restructured contract for Elvis Dumervil was on life support. Can neither confirm nor deny

    Reminds me of the Red Sox losing Carlton Fisk and Fred Lynn because they didn't mail their contracts on time. :oops:

    Talib is staying with the Pats and it's looking more and more like Victor Cruz will be staying at his current deal with the Giants for at least one more year.

    Cruz fired his agent a few days ago and hired Tom Condon. I think they get a new deal worked out with the Giants.

    Yeah, that Colts talk is going around. I don't know what to make of it. It could be a move for Cruz, or it could be trade talk for someone else. Hard to say.

    Yeah, Irsay is going hard after a big name WR and the two names that are being rumored right now are Cruz and Fitz. I'd personally rather have Fitzgerald.

    As a Giants fan, I would prefer for them to go get Fitz too!

    Now there are rumors that the Colts are pursuing a trade for Doug Baldwin. I don't know how true that is, but anything to take them out of the Cruz market is alright by me!

    He did according to Yahoo!Sports. Also the NFLPA is apparently wanting the fax snafu investigated.

    yea. i get the feeling that dumervil thing may get sorted out in favor of the contract going through. sounds like the agent screwed up pretty badly in this instance, since they'd reached an agreement and all.
