Another big NY move: LB David Harris re-signs with Jets: 3 years, $21.5M, including $15 million fully guaranteed, per source.
i refuse to even consider this a possibility
Tom Brady will still appeal suspension through NFLPA.
Could one of the resident MGoFootballExperts please explain why it is that tackles are so much more highly valued than guards? I understand why they'd be a bit more valued, but why is a great OT worth so much more than a great OG, and why are tackles so much harder to replace?
I ask because my NFL team, the Washington NFL franchise, drafted a guard this year and the DC press has surprisingly mixed feelings. This despite the fact that he is, by all accounts I've seen, a skilled beast and the best offensive lineman in the draft. And Washington needs help in the middle! Scherff could start right away! But people are saying that it's just not worth taking a guard with the fifth overall pick. Why not?
A man we once knew as one of the worst safeties in Michigan's history (although he finished his senior season as a pretty good SLB) continues a pretty solid NFL career as a safety, signing with the Texans.
As a Texans fan, I like it. But rumors are we're looking to trade DJ Swearinger, which seems like a waste on such a young player.
Probably overdue, but interesting nonetheless. Shouldn't impact much, as most taxable revenue runs through the member clubs. Mostly a PR move and leverage play against Congress re: concussion, domestic violence, etc.
This has been my first post. Neat.
