Aside from recently ending my lockout of the NHL, there is nothing remotely interesting in the world of sports.   Even though the NFL season just ended, I am hoping this thread provides interest during the hiatus from sports and suppliements the non-hockey void in the sports sections.

 


To start:  I can't believe the Falcons cut Michael Turner & John Abraham.

 

Someone else can start the Flacco thread, I already have my opinion on it.

No shock Abraham and Turner were cut, they made too much money for their production level and both got hurt a lot (especially Abraham). Good thread though, free agency in just over a week now! I'm pumped because we have money to spend for once.

But, the Altanta Defense is horrbile without Abraham in the line-up.  It is night and day.

 

In terms of Free Agency, I am scared that the Flacco contract will not allow us to field anything close to a Super Bowl caliber team next year.   If we lose Boldin, Reed, Jones, Leetch, Ellerbee or Kruger we will be in for a LONG season.   In the playoffs Boldin made Flacco his payday.

I would have to presume Atlanta has a plan to replace Abraham via the draft or FA. Maybe your boy Kruger, since you mentioned him. And yeah, last I heard re: Flacco was he's looking at $20 mil per year. That's about what I thought. Well, I think I said between 18 and 20 if I recall. That could make things tough resigning your other players, no doubt. You're right to be a little concerned about that.

The Flacco contract is officially announced today.  Hopefully, only $7 million counts against the cap.

 

PLEASE OZZIE!

Interesting that Dwayne Bowe re-signed with the Chiefs. Nice to know that Alex Smith might not go back to being the tackling dummy that he was pre-Harbaugh.

Harvin traded to Seattle for a first and seventh. Wasn't just last year where there was talk that the Jets could have had him for a third? People speculating that this means Seattle or Mnnesota might be jumoing into the Wallace sweepstakes. Hooefulky from a Phin fan's perspective, the rumor is correct that the Wallace deal is already done. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk HD

Why ON EARTH would Minnesota trade their only offensive threat besides AP?  Unless they do have a handshake agreement with Wallace or someone else.

 

Boldin dealt to the Niners for a 6th, the first Flacco domino falls, and John did Jim a favor.

Wallace has apparently agreed on a deal with Miami......

 

Harvin's been a headcase and an injury-mess.....dumping him and retooling is the best thing they can do.....

He was basically a cancer in the lockerroom and he made it clear that he would bolt at free agency.  A year ago they were talking about trading him for a third round pick, now they got a first.  Not that bad Minnesota.

 

Reports are that Wallace has a handshake deal with the Dolphins.

When he wouldn't restructure his deal, it was a foregone conclusion.  It also took Flacco a set of cajones to say the Ravens shouldn't restructure Boldin's deal, when it's the $20 million they're paying to Flacco that made that necessary.  Ravens only got a sixth round pick.  Meaning it was the equivalent of the Ravens releasing him.

The best part of this is during his re-negogiation time.....Flacco told him to stick to his guns and not make a deal....think about that on every 3rd and 7 for the rest of your career buddy :lol:

lol, I could have sworn Flacco's cap number was low for next year.  Or at least it should be.

As you all know I was a strong Flacco supporter, but I think his contract is going to ruin the franchise over the next few years. Losing Boldin is huge, as he was largely responsible for Flacco's big payday. Boldin didn't deserve a pay cut, Joe just got greedy. It is a lot easier to defend against us without Boldin. I am afraid Flacco will become the next Neil ODonnell without a good supporting cast. I am hating Average Joe right now.

For a 6th, I wish Ireland threw his hat in the ring. But that could've been a Harbaugh family discount, who knows. But that's a tough loss for you guys Manta, no two ways about it.

All per NFL.com

 

Bennett to the Bears, a sorely needed tight end upgrade for them if Jay can take his eyes off of Brandon for a hot sec.

 

As stated in the other thread, Wallace to Miami is pending physicals but is basically official. 

 

Andy Levitre to Tennessee - 5/39
Paul Kruger to Cleveland - 5/40
Anthony Fasano to Kansas City - multiyear, terms unknown

Nick Novak re-ups in SD for 4 years

Louis Vasquez to Denver - 4/23.5

 

And on the flip side, Buffalo says goodbye to Fitzpatrick.
