    I never thought he was great, but he was serviceable - certainly better than Nathan Peterman.

    Ola Had Surgery

    No mention of what the surgery was or how significant. He briefly had a post on social media that was picked up by some news outlets or blogs, and then quickly removed it.

    Hopefully this isn't...

    I remember not being the biggest fan of Sherman when he was the OC, but especially given the options, or lack thereof, at this point in the offseason, Sherman working with a younger coach makes a lot...

    Mike Tomlin played WR in college and then spent significant time coaching DBs in college and in the NFL.

    I think Rogers and Switzer probably have a bit of trade value. Not a huge return, but maybe swapping a 5th for a 6th, or even a conditional 6th/7th rounder. The rest - I'd agree. No trade value.

    Right, you don't see the salary paid to any position decrease. So if you pay your QB $30 or $40 million, there is less money to go around.

    As an example, f Ben had a cap hit of $30 million...

    Of the guys competing for spots 5-6, I think Switzer, Rogers, Holton and Tevin Jones are all rosterable NFL players who could provide value in different ways. Spencer could be an interesting return...

    If you could get Mann to essentially work as a consultant while grooming Ward, yeah, that type of situation would be ideal. Even if not Ward, per se, but any younger coach. If I was Mann, though,...

    And the more those guys get paid, the less money there is left to go around to rest of the team. That's the way it works with a salary cap. I'd love to see the Cowboys pay Dak a deal in excess of the...

    Was really sad to hear about this. Just awful to see somebody so young pass away suddenly. Everything I've read about Coach Drake indicates that he was a truly great guy.

    The Steelers do seem to have depth at WR, but I wouldn't trade Washington. I would have said the same thing before Friday, too. Having options between Moncrief, Washington and Johnson isn't a bad...

    Agree. He may just be the 4th or 5th ILB, but he's something like second in special teams tackles in the league. He may not be an absolute lock to make the roster, but I would put the odds of him...

    I get your point, but there are some guys - I think Bud Dupree is a great example - who are stellar athletes but not stellar football players. I think Edmunds athleticism will allow him to overcome...

    That is a great comparison.

    The numbers in the comparison between Troy's rookie season and Edmunds means nothing to me. I think Edmunds did look better as the season went on. I forget the game,...

    I realize that, which is why I advocate signing him to a long term deal only if it is beneficial, i.e., only if there is a discount on a few free agent years. Paying him more because he's "worth...

    Sure, when he is on the open market, he does. Under the collectively bargained rules, he does not "deserve" anything more right now. If you pay him a bit more now, he needs to take a discount on what...

    I'd like to see both guys stick on the roster. Matakevich is slow, no doubt. But he may be the best wrap-up tackler on the team. His performance on special teams (one of the leaders in the league in...

    If the Steelers can ditch Burns to somebody who seems him as a possible reclamation project and get something of value in return - a third TE, a backup safety, or a 6th round pick - I'd take it in a...

    I think he is likely competing with Adeniyi (they opened with just 3 OLBs last year), Sutton and others for LB roles 8-10 that will be based, in significant part, on special teams prowess.

    Bell's versatility made him elite. But James Conner, at a discount of $10 million per season, is very good - and probably actually a better pure runner than Bell - certainly at this stage in his...

    The league is also about creating mismatches. Maybe 2 backs gives you an opportunity to split somebody out and get man coverage with a linebacker.

    In any event, it's the first session of OTAs. I...

    Smart move by Locke. Rather than chasing a few thousand more in a bonus, he picked a roster that he has the best chance of making.

    It's the role that Larry Foote played on the defense for years. The difference here is that the rest of the cast on defense isn't as strong.

    That's not even writing. It's just re-casting what an actual reporter said. I respect the work that Alex Kozora does - for better or worse, he offers his own analysis and insight. The rest of the...
