Well this is interesting:
 

 
Ben Volin ‏@BenVolin 53m
Interesting curveball from Revis’ business manager RT @JohnGeiger_: As of now, nothing has been agreed to with Revis and Patriots.
 
 
Not his agent, so perhaps it's nothing.  Still, Schefter is kind of a weasel, and was wrong, or exaggerated a lot of stuff about Martin/Incognito when it first broke, so it would be pretty awesome if he got this one wrong, especially since in no way, shape or form do I want Revis on the Pats.




Edit, of course now there's this.

@BenVolin: Just a hunch that the tweet from Revis' business manager was a way to pump the brakes until the physical is completed tomorrow

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

Eh. I trust Shefter with this one. They're just dotting the I's and crossing the T's. I doubt anybody swoops in at the last second. And he most certainly will pass the physical. He will be a Patriot

Yeah, I think so too, but I just want to hold on to anything that I possibly can. Btw, another interesting tidbit:

@MMehtaNYDN: Rex Ryan wanted to sign Darrelle Revis... BADLY, per sources. However, decision was over his head. #nyj

Well the Jets have been wooing Decker (literally, all day) so don't know what to make of it.

 

What this certainly proves is that Idzik is in full control, FWIW. Revis was never in his plans and he wanted no part of him. He certainly could've signed him if he wanted to

The Revis deal was a good one for the Pats...I like that it's only one year.  Would I rather have Revis at what he got or Talib at what he got?  It's a no-brainer.  If he plays well for the Pats, they probably re-sign him, as long as the money doesn't get completely silly.  It's definitely a test-drive kind of contract. 

 

Browner sounds like a major headache...not sure if I'd go that route.

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

Anthony Collins is a Buc at 5/30/15.  Could mean Donald Penn's release is emminent.

 

Also, Rodger Safford's Raiders contract fell through on a failed physical.  Here's an interesting article on the agents' perspective of it.

Sanders and Ginn would be a nice addition. Ginn would fit in Baltimore, and I'd take him over Smith as well.

Browner visiting San Fran now. Would be a nice addition.

Cardinals hosting Ginn and Antonio Cromartie

Woodly to Oakland

Arizona and Ginn hit a three year deal.

Costa to the colts

Sproles a eagle, not sure why.

Hatcher signs with the Skins

Captain Munnerlyn three years as a viking.

Finnegan meeting with FINS for you fin fans.

Steve Smith please come to Baltimore, you are the only WR on the market worth signing.

So strange. With one team, I am angry at the crazy loyalty shown for my favourite hockey player throughout the years, and on one team I am saddened how poorly they have treated Steve Smith, my favourite NFLer over the years. And Steve Smith can still play and do some incredible things. Just needs to be used better.

Exactly. He is the only WR available that is a difference maker. Carolina just made themselves a below average team in one move.

I would love to have such a talent on my Ravens.

The move made very little sense. They save 1.5-2 million by cutting him. They have no replacement via free agency. They just lost their #2 receiver and are about to lose their #3 receiver. Brutal start to the off-season.

You'll sign Nicks. Most apt. Seems, sanders will end up in KC and Edelmen in SF

YES!!!! and we re-signed Pitta, Smith and Monroe.    Ozzie is starting to redeem himself after last years debacle.  Signing the only quality WR on the market is a major coop!

 

Between Torrey and Steve the Smith boys are going to have a lot of touchdowns!   He is a great complement to Torrey and he is a fierce competitor who doesn't like to lose.    LOVE THIS SIGNING.

Pats sign Browner too.  Clearly they're in full-on "go for it" mode.  Still need serious help on the pass rush.

A person close to DeSean Jackson told the Allentown Morning Call that there's "no way" Jackson will return to the Eagles in 2014.

 

The Jets cut their existing "Troubled" WR's  so there is an opening there.

I read this too.   But then read today that DeJax act is wearing thin with Kelly.    I don't know who to believe anymore.

 

The question is does his talent supercede the headaches?
