LA released James Laurinaitis.. I don't know much about him... would he be good on our defense? I know he has had some good seasons.


Probably. He's a solid MLB that is pretty durable. I'm guessing he has a few good seasons left but he does have a lot of miles on his tires and I believe approaching 30. He did struggle this past year, though.

He is a beast inside I wouldn't mind if the Vikings made a move for him

I am guessing that would be BarrOLB Larunetis(sp) MLB Kendricks OLB

Depending on his market value, I can see him being a nice pickup. That gives us depth and experience while stimulating competition, and as we saw last year, you can never have too many LBs.

I like he move for us, but I don't think it would be a wise move for him. But hey, if he doesn't feel great about his starting chances anywhere else, I could see him chasing a ring with the hometown team.

He is from MN, so it could aid his decision. I wonder what he would command in the FA market.

Lauranitis is one of those 'I know his name, so lets sign him!' type of deals.

If you can get a him extremely cheap then yea take a flyer on him, but otherwise, a guy who's potential topped out at AJ Hawk 2.0, and has had his numbers on steady decline for the last 3 years, and was just cut isn't very attractive a prospect.

No thanks. We need to get younger and faster. Not older and slower. We already have one LB who struggles to run down plays and cover...

I don't think he is a coverage backer but I think he is similar to Hodges....

Glen would be a huge deal and cap hit.

If he is tagged it really wouldn't matter but given the cuts including Kalil how is going to make over 11 million
next season it wouldn't be a problem.

Cordy Glenn - T - Bills

Bills signed franchise player LT Cordy Glenn to a one-year, $13.706 million contract.

As expected. The two sides now have until July 15 to agree on a long-term deal. Even with next to no cap space, the Bills couldn't risk losing Glenn on the open market.

RGIII just got released-how do you think the Redskins are going to feel when he becomes the next Rams QB?

The Eagles are "finalizing" a trade that will send DeMarco Murray to the Titans when the NFL's new league year opens Wednesday afternoon.

What a disaster Chip Kelly made in Philly. I have no idea how he was able to land another Head Coaching job.

Packers interested in Matt Forte per Adam Schefter.

Julius Peppers is apparently personally lobbying Forte for his services.

If Forte signs with GB, that makes them a scary team. They were good with no running game...

He wouldn't be able to displace Lacy. Lacy has consistantly topped Forte in ground production since he has been in the league. Even last year for all the crap he gets, he still topped Forte's career YPC.

Forte would be a great change of pace, and an upgrade of a replacement for Starks.

Quite honestly, I don't understand your comment, the Packers run game wasn't in any way lacking last year, for most of the year it was ranked higher then the pass.

Shefters colleague, Ed Werder also reports the Packers have expressed interest in Martellus Bennett.

Keep in mind McCarthy made it a point to tell the media, "We might shock you all in Free agency this year".

The Packers are currently 8th in the league in adjusted cap room, according to the NFLPA.

When Janoris Jenkins signs with the #Giants, it'll be worth more than $12M per year. Huge investment.
