$8.4M APY and half the contract guaranteed. His agent did him a solid. Big increase over what the Cowboys were offering. Murray has every right to feel dissed by the Cowboys. Now he gets to play them twice a year.

If Jerry Jones is interested in acquiring Peterson, this helps him sell the idea that AP has to take a big pay cut if he wants to play for the Cowboys. If the number Jones has set for the RB position is $5-6M, Adrian will have to swallow a huge pay cut (without even getting into compensation back to the Vikings). Would AP leave $6M+ on the table just to play with the Cowboys? I don't see it happening.

Headline I'm expecting to read out of Philly in the next few minutes: Ryan Mathews told limo driver to take him to the airport instead of going for a physical.

Man ... that's a pretty good deal for the Chiefs. Grubbs is 31 with two years left on his contract. $6.5M this year and $7.2M next year. A little pricey but he's a good player. Saints only save $3.6M on their cap with this deal.

Saints are a mess. Cap strapped (and mismanaged), Benson's kids suing him alleging he's senile and Drew Brees sitting on a $26.4M cap number. Report said they haven't asked Brees to either restructure or take a pay cut. If true that's just crazy. Brees should volunteer to give them some cap relief. Wonder if they're cleaning the slate to get the team ready for a sale?

Antonio Cromartie back to New York.

Jesus. That defense goes from being suspect to down right ridiculous! I have always liked the Jets. This is good to see.

With Marshall catching passes from Ryan 'The Amish Cannon' Fitzpatrick.
Plus a high pick that could net them MariOta.

@AdamSchefter Ryan Mathews IS signing in Philly, per source.
@smartfootball I guess Chip Kelly didn't deal LeSean McCoy because he wanted to spend less on the runningback position

I'm not crazy about Chris Culliver's attitude, so that doesn't bother me. I know some people wanted him, though.

Yahoo! Sports' Rand Getlin reports the Saints "are in the process" of trading Kenny Stills to the Dolphins.

Saints signed RB C.J. Spiller.
Saints acquired LB Dannell Ellerbe and a 2015 third-round pick from the Dolphins in exchange for WR Kenny Stills.
@AdamHBeasley A source told me that Drew Brees was not happy with either Ben Grubbs or Kenny Stills. No coincidence that they're both gone.
@nfldraftscout Saints are telling traded players they're going all-in to build a defense. They now have two 1sts, a 2nd and two 3rds.

@AdamSchefter Oh boy: Bills reached agreement on 1-year deal with WR Percy Harvin, per source. Buffalo spending bills; add Harvin, McCoy, Incognito.

That's one place I'd have not thought likely.
I don't believe Ponder sees himself as a backup, even though that's what it looks like he is.....I keep seeing him landing in a place where he has a chance to start.
He's definitely a guy I will follow wherever he winds up...just out of morbid curiousity.
