Jake is gone! What incredible news.

There is no team happier about an uncapped year than Carolina. That contract they signed Delhomme to last year was maybe the worst contract in NFL history.

Quiet day so far.... usually someone signs right away.....

Chatter update: Lovie Smith flying to Carolina to meet Peppers one on one and beg the hell out of him to be a Bear

(can't say I blame them, since they don't draft till the 3rd Round, time to get desperate)

+1 Never understood that contract, especially after his playoff performance prior to re-signing him.

NFLFanhouse.com reports free agent FS Antrel Rolle is "on the verge" of completing a deal with the Giants.

Not so fast. Beat writer Armando Salguero reports the Dolphins are still talking to agent Drew Rosenhaus about Rolle even while the safety in New York. Meanwhile, Giants beat writer Ralph Viacchiano hears that the choice is down to the Giants and Cardinals. It's clear as mud that the Giants are now the favorites.

NFL Networks reported that the Chicago Bears has signed FA RB from the Vikings Chester Taylor to a 4-yr-$16M dollar contract with $7M guaranteed upfront. Not a bad contract at all for Taylor. Bears are also close to signing Peppers.

Reports: Bears close with Peppers; Taylor has deal

http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/03/05/reports-bears-close-with-peppers-taylor-has-dealn/

The Bears have agreed to terms with free-agent RB Chester Taylor, and the signing of DE Julius Peppers is imminent, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Neil Hayes reported Friday that Peppers is expected to sign a six-year contract worth approximately $12 million per season, with the first three years guaranteed. The Eagles and Patriots also have offers out to Peppers, NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported.

So I guess Chicago is going to do running back by committee with Forte and Taylor. I wonder which one of them will get more carries, should be an interesting training camp battle for carries. Not surprised at all by Peppers.

I'd love Antrel Rolle as a Giant, he and Kenny Phillips at the safeties would be great for the secondary it'd help a lot. I still would like cornerback help, though.

Julius Peppers is officially a Chicago Bear.

Peppers, Bears finalize deal

http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/nfl/news/story?id=4969071&campaign=rss&source=ESPNHeadlines&utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

The Bears and Julius Peppers finalized a six-year deal to bring the top free agent in 2010 to Chicago, according to a source.

Peppers was looking for at least $12 million a year in the early part of the contract. The agreement could be worth $40 million over the first three years.

The 6-foot-7, 283-pound Peppers is a five-time Pro Bowler who recorded 10.5 sacks with two interceptions and five forced fumbles last season.

The point of the contract was to lower his cap hit so they were able to re-sign guys like Gross and Peppers. They gave him guaranteed money, but his cap hit was nothing. He was expected to make $1.625 million this year, which is less than 50 QBs in the league. So with that in mind, people don't really get what the point of releasing a QB, who makes so little and would be a great backup for any team. But, I like the direction that they are taking with Moore most likely being the starter. He deserves that opportunity.

Fantastic signing my the Bears on Taylor. He improves them alot and really hurts Minny.

Boldin and a 5th to baltimore for a 3rd and a 4th. Boldin re-signs 4 years 28 million.

Wow, great trade for Baltimore, this gives them a good weapon and Boldin can be the number 1 somewhere. When's the last time the Ravens had a receiver this good...ever?

Manta will be pleased with the Boldin developments.

As he should. And now the excuses are done for Mr. Flacco, time to deliver.

At least the Dolphins signed Dansby, providing me with some happiness on an evening where the Devils did their best to sap any and all of it out of me.

If scoring 391 points is pop-gun, what does that make Dallas (360 PF)??

Absolutely thrilled. If Mason plays one more year with Boldin we finally have the pieces for another championship.

LOTCB is right, Flacco has to deliver NOW.

Indeed. You guys look good on paper for sure. Boldin is really the first legit big-play threat that organization has had since maybe Webster Slaughter.

Pish-posh!

Derrick Mason has been one of the best receivers in Football the past decade, he would be a HOF candidate if we didn't have Kyle Boller, Derrick Anderson, Anthony Wright, and a ancient Steve McNair at QB. Unfortunately he is also the only WR that Flacco throws to and teams know it.
