    Face it, the doucheier they are, the more attention they get...
    If that's the case, it could have been intentional. But that would mean Ed is clever and I doubt that

    Good point though.

    Ed Bouchettes apology regarding HIS mistake on the mandatory NFL Players Association Rookie Premier:

    --- We were wrong about rookie Dri Archer skipping spring practices last week in order to appear at the NFL Players Association Rookie Premier. He was required to attend because he was chosen to attend, per league rules. It may be a stupid rule that keeps a rookie away from his team for his first few practices with his new veteran teammates while others are getting a leg up, but that’s the rule. So, in reality, the practices were not voluntary for Archer last week because it was mandated he stay away. It is nearly as dumb as the rule that prevents rookie linebacker Jordan Zumwalt from practicing with his teammates because UCLA’s spring classes have not yet ended. Archer should be ready to go when OTAs resume Tuesday in Pittsburgh.

    3. Adam Shaheen, TE, Ashland

    4. Trey Hendrickson, DE, Florida Atlantic

    5. Josh Reynolds, WR, Texas A&M

    Way to deflect Douchette.

    Blame the league for a dumb rule, rather owning it for not getting your facts straight before you publish something derogatory.

    Of course, I expected no less from the sorriest sports reporter in the 'Burgh.

    Maybe it was Jeff OTAH...Bouchette can blame Spell Check for that error.


    Difference maker in the middle needed to replace Shazier.

    Offer picks 1.28 & 3.92 plus WR Martavis Bryant to ARZ for pick 1.15. They only have 5 draft picks now, plus their WR's are undersized (John Brown & J.J. Nelson both 5'10") or old (Larry Fitzgerald 35 y.o.).

    Gets us ahead of BAL at 1.16, who's looking to replace the retired ILB Zach Orr.

    1.15 Georgia ILB Roquan Smith 6'0" 225
    2.60 Stanford FS Justin Reid 6'1" 204
