To some degree. Like I said, I'm just not sure how strong the correlation is. I'm sure there are millions of successful and unhappy people, and millions of "unsuccessful" and very happy people. I'm not against generalizations, I'm just not sure how true that notion is as a generalization.

Long story short, I think being a Packer is in fact probably pretty miserable. :wink:

Cards-Pats blockbuster from @diannaESPN and me: Cards trade G Jonathan Cooper + 2nd-rd pick to NE for DE Chandler Jones, per sources.

Broncos have informed RB CJ Anderson they are matching Miami's offer sheet, per source. He stays in Denver.

Dumb, aggressive short term thinking by the Cardinals.

Patriots are laughing their #### off.

Cards are serious about getting a ring. They have upgraded both sides of the ball.
Probably figure Palmer doesn't have to many years left.

Banking your future on maintaining a window for Carson Palmer is a silly move imo.

Something to keep an eye on. I doubt we'd sign him if available (too pricy, especially with Kalil) but I certainly wouldn't mind me some Clady.

Ryan Clady - T - Broncos

Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports the Broncos and LT Ryan Clady "are currently at impasse regarding his contract for 2016."
The Broncos want Clady to take a pay cut on his $9.5 million base salary. Clady, understandably, is not that interested in taking less money, but his opinion could be swayed by the visit of free agent LT Russell Okung to Denver this week. The Broncos can save $8.9 million against the cap by releasing Clady.

Okung to Denver. Clady likely traded or cut

Dammit, this is why we shouldn't have paid Kalil. 20/20
