Rams grabbed Titus Young

could be a good low risk - high reward fantasy pick up next year because he could easily end up being the #1 with Amendola in the slot

he just has to not be a retard which unfortunately is asking a lot from him...

Surprised Giants released Ahmad. He's what 26.

Hope the 49ers don't release Gore. If alex and gore are not on 49ers next year :cry:

going to be interesting what the Rams do with him. They seem to be content with Gibson and Amendola. Hopefully Amendola can stay healthy for 1 whole year.

Would you give up a 2nd for Jennings?

Bradshaw is having surgery and is going to miss a few months. He only plays half the time. I get it, it's not a move you would love but i get it.

Why would they give up a second round pick for Jennings when they could just go sign him and give up nothing in terms of draft picks?

The fantasy of tagging and trading

sigh ill miss you bradshaw :( was a big part in both super bowl runs. boley was great last year too.

dont really care about canty, ex-cowboy barely ever made any noise.

i wonder if they did it so they can give cruz the big contract that he deserves.

Bradshaw was expendable and i'm pretty sure they want to give their 1st round pick from a year ago a shot to be the guy. Andre Brown also showed he's a serviceable back as well. I don't know Bradshaw's salary but it's useless to have him if the player behind him is just as good or better, also RB's are a dime in a dozen.

Giants have a few players that they need to resign. Players like Cruz, Brown, Beatty, Phillips and Bennett, also Nicks has 1 year left on his contract and he's probably going to cash in soon.

As for Victor Cruz I think the Giants may need to pick between him or Nicks as both will demand big contracts and I don't think the Giants have the cap to waste that money on WR's. Might be a smart idea to trade Nicks for a possible 1st or second and keep Cruz long term. But I think Nicks is a better player than Cruz

Anquan Boldin said if Baltimore releases him he'll just retire, "they'll be my last team."

It's funny that Baltimore is on the verge of giving Flacco elite QB money on the strength of a great postseason but may have to cut his best playoff receiver to get him that money.

Anyhow the overall football fan in me wants Boldin to play on but as a Pats fan I don't want to see him in purple anymore. He's not the best receiver or even close but he might be the best at winning the fight for a jump ball.

Been seeing rumors that Jarvis Jones will slide on draft day and multiple mocks with him going to Pittsburgh. I know its way too early for that and I would be shocked if it happened but I hate the way these rumors tease me with the possibility.
