Chase Ford released by the Browns. I guess with all them draft picks from the Eagles they are going another direction now.

Panthers kind of got Norman. After most of FA is over and most teams have spent their money. Rescind your offer and release him. Don't know why he just didn't sign the tag and take the 14 million.

What's your thoughts on Redskins signing Norman?
Personally feel it's to much money. But the Gaints Redskins games should be interesting. :mrgreen:

Redskins signed CB Josh Norman to a five-year, $75 million contract.

The Saints made a late push for Norman, but Washington was willing to meet his asking price. Norman's deal includes $50 million guaranteed, and his $15 million AAV makes him the highest paid corner in the league.

Good grief.

Sam Bradford requested a trade. Eagles want him to start/be a bridge quarterback.
Prominent NFL source: Broncos reached out to PHI re: Bradford. Unable to confirm w/ team but NFL source: PHI asking price too high. #9news

I cannot say for certain what exactly I would do in that position, but part of me wants to say I would honor my contract. If nothing else, play for a year and then request a trade. The only reason I can see him requesting a trade now is that he knows a team wants him to be their unconditional starter.

Honestly that is just the NFL teams are always looking to improve. I don't think Bradford has
has a lot of options moving forward. I think the best for him is to play great and then the rookie
will sit a year or two. I don't think Bradford can stay healthy that long, anyways.

Colts signed QB Andrew Luck to a new six-year, $140 million contract through 2021.

This deal resets the top of the quarterback market and contains a record-setting $87 million guaranteed. Luck was entering the final year of his rookie contract. Despite missing half of last season and struggling for large chunks of the eight games he was in there, Luck deserves every penny.

I would gladly take Paul Dawson... Makes finding a post-Greenway replacement easier.

It's interesting he was cut so quickly. Doesn't bode well. Weird. Was he that bad last year?

This is probably the shock of the season so far, for me. I read they have no option for replacement yet.
