I'm told OT Mitchell Schwartz has agreed in principle to a deal with the #Chiefs.

Sources indicate that #Bears have plans to move Kyle Long back to guard. FA would help dictate that, and now OT Bobby Massie to sign.

Looks like Jacksonville and Houston made some deep moves to compete with the Patriots, Denver and Kansas City

Honestly. How often do the top spenders in free agency really make that much of an improvement?

Not often, using FA aggressively rarely works, and even when it does, it levels the cap down the road.

Will be interesting to watch the Raiders' season. Pundits are slobbering over their offseason. It's odd...many of them criticizing teams for lavish spending yet some of the same are praising McKenzie. On paper they are looking pretty formidable, though. And they may end up with Weddle, too.

Denver traded for Mark Sanchez. I always thought he was underrated. He took the Jets to the AFC Championship game a few times and almost won them.
