I deleted the post. Marshall is still on the block. I don't think the report was true.

Dwayne Bowe is going to get cut or traded (likely cut) per Ian Rapoport on Twitter

49ers signed DE Darnell Dockett to a two-year, $7.5 million contract.

The deal includes $4M in the first year but only $2M guaranteed. It's more than the Cardinals offered Dockett to come back, but it still reflects his status as a 34-year-old (in May) who missed all of 2014 due to an August ACL tear. In San Francisco, Dockett will compete with Tank Carradine and others for the starting 3-4 end job vacated by Ray McDonald. Most likely, Dockett will end up in a heavy rotation.

Although we play SD this year :)

Great move for the Chargers. They have never really given Rivers an established weapon.

That was a false report, but they may certainly inquire. He would be a good addition to pair with Keenan Allen while they still have Rivers.

Post Brandon Marshall to the Jets
Surprised there hasn't been a thread about this.

Quote:
The trade, which cannot become official until free agency opens Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET, will also rely on Marshall passing a physical. The Jets are sending a fifth-round pick to the Bears in return, according to a source.


I get that he's been injured and isn't the easiest guy to work with but a 5th for Marshall is a STEAL. Granted, I seriously doubt Chicago would have traded him to an NFC North rival but man, I would have tried real hard if I were the Vikings. The guy is straight up unstoppable when he's healthy. The $7.7 million against the cap is what kept teams away but I think the Jets are going to be happy they made this trade in a year. The Bears, not so much.

I agree. A good deal for the Jets. Between the Jets and the Bills, the AFC East is becoming much more competitive on paper.

I think with the NFL operating as it is, there is a real risk to a guy like Marshall who has had multiple run ins with the law over assaulting women. He could be out all year or forever with one more attack. I know he's being treated for mental health issues and is supposedly a new man, we'll see. If he catches another case in this environment all those other cases will be brought up as well and he will certainly be suspended at least 1 year.

Sure but a 5th? I don't get it, I'd take the risk rather than take that trade. All I can think of was he was getting cut and the Bears took whatever they could.

You have a point. a 5th in't much to risk. Its hard not to believe the bears wanted him out do to his reported problems getting along with teammates, locker room cancer kind of behavior than do to his salary or lack of talent, if they parted with him for such a pittance. He obviously is one of the best WRs of the last decade and consistently displays that ability against the Vikings.

Mark Sanchez back to Philly.

Philly must be set on Mariota. Nick Foles is going to go away. Or they will have Sanchez and Foles compete if they miss out on Mariota.

I'd rather see Mariota in a more traditional system as a pro. If Kelly manages to get him in Philly and Kelly doesn't last it's gong to be a huge step back for the Eagles...or should I say Ducks.

Assuming the Bucs take Winston, what would it cost Philly to move up?

They could be a legit team this year if the moves pan out for them. Although, Frank Gore has lost more than one step.

I don't recall an offseason with more high profile signings/targets than this year's Chip Kelly Eagles. More offseason FA signings than Washington? Jeez. And trading McCoy? And if he mortgages this year's draft for Mariota? Man. Philly ownership is really going all in with him. It'll be interesting to watch Philly the next couple of years. Chip knows what he wants and is going and getting it.

I'm glad to be watching it unfold from afar. I am not a supporter of trading into the top 5. I would only do it for a top shelf QB. And if the guy was a 'lock' the team holding the pick would be nuts to trade it (IMO)...unless they had their QB already, like the Rams with RG3.

I guess Mariota and Kelly is a unique situation, and I have no idea how much, if any, of the speculation is true.....but they do seem to be putting all their chips on Chip.
