Please Welcome Your Players Here.
The Kansas City Chiefs would officially like to welcome back last years starting Center Rudy Niswanger back to the fold, but it looks more than likely he will being plaing Right Guard with the rumored addition of Center Jason Brown.
The Rams want to give a big welcome to Willie Colon and want to welcome back Richie Incognito.
The Rams fill 2 needs RG and RT.

k thanks bro
Chargers welcome back:
Darren Sproles.... pocket lightning
Malcom Floyd... slotted as the #2 wr next to Vincent Jackson
Jeromey Clary... returning starting RT
The Ravens would like to welcome back Terrell Suggs and Dawan Landry. They are two very talented young players and we can't wait for them to keep that vaunted Ravens D great.
Buccaneers welcome back LT Donald Penn (starter in 2008) and WR Antonio Bryant (2008 stats - 1248 yards, 7TD's). Two players who really came on last year and we hope can improve even further in the next.
The Houston Texans would like to welcome back one of the leagues best Tight End, Pro Bowler Owen Daniels. Daniels was unavailable for comment but his agent said he is "pumped to remain in Houston and looks forward to working with Tom Brady."
Atari Bigby has resigned with Green Bay. Although, rumors are circling that he wants a trade.
Kansas City welcomes the first of their high profiled free agent signing by adding former Panthers Offensive Tackle Jordan Gross to what will be a formidable Offensive line.
The Tennessee Titans would like to welcome back the biggest free agent name this offseason Albert Haynesworth. The Titans were very happy to bring back the most dominating force on any defensive line.
Chargers welcome two big dogs to our o line...
We signed Kevin Shaffer and Andrew Whitworth for $300,000 each... bargains IMO... and since they are $300k, they can be released at anytime should I feel the urge... My o line now looks like this...
I thought you had to wait 48 hours?
looks pretty solid on the left.
It's been two days since I placed the bids...
Yeah I know, I realized that after I posted it. I'm stupid. My bad.
Rams want to welcome DT Shaun Cody. Cody has been disappointing but we hope a change of scenery and guidance under Steve Spagnuolo will help him become the player he was meant to be.
Chiefs would like to welcome former Cincinnati Bengal LB Brandon Johnson who was second on the team with tackles last year for a bargain 300,000.
Chargers welcome Tight End Jerramy Stevens to the fray with $300,000... gifted, yet off the field issues have plagued Mr. Stevens... Norv Turner has locked him up in our basement and will feed him mutton and ale while he jogs on a treadmill and does pushups all day to stay in shape.
The Cincinnati Bengals have signed center and guard Grey Ruegamer, Center Mat Birk, Safety Keith Davis and Safety James Butler. Bengals co-GM Alen has no comment on the moves. Vengeful Odin will be available for comment at a later time.
Buccaneers welcome LB/DE Chike Okeafor, and RB Justin Fargas as well as welcome back QB Luke McCown. Okeafor is a hardy vet at LB/DE who will be a cheap, capable backup who can rush the passer. He proved himself well in the playoffs for the Cardinals. Justin Fargas gives us a hard-nosed back to give starter Earnest Graham a breather. QB McCown will continue to develop under the Buccaneers.
The jacksonville Jaguars are proud to announce the FA return of Quaterback Byron Leftwich. for 1.5m we are happy to have him back to compete for the starting spot of our team!
The Jacksonville Jaguars are also very pleased to announce the re-signing of RB Fred Taylor. Taylor at the twilight of his career, will be a nice compliment to Maurice Jones Drew......earlier this offseason the jaguars traded fred taylor and his 9m in salary to the steelers for larry foote. So re-signing him for 750k and getting larry foote feels like a steal for the jaguar organization.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are proud to announce the return of Antwan Randle El to the Pittsburgh Steelers family. We would also like to welcome Dominic Rhodes, Tyler Brayton, Raheem Brock, and Aaron Halterman to the family.
(And it was 5 mil. )
The Chicago Bears would like to welcome six new players into the Bears family.
Defensive end Kevin Carter will bring instant veteran leadership and very good depth to the defensive end spot where he is expected to compete heavily for playing time.
Larry Izzo, the best special teams player of his generation, will make an instant impact and will also provide depth at the linebacker position.
Super Bowl hero David Tyree returns from injury to be a productive member of the Bears retooled wide-receiving corps.
Joining him will be former Eagle Hank Baskett who is another young receiver who is just now ready to break out and become a star.
Two offensive tackles have also joined the team. George Foster started almost all of the Lions games last season and was the best member of the line. Add his young age and upside to the mix and it is a surprise that he was able to be signed so cheap.
He will be joined by Frank Omiyale who stepped in as a starter for Jordan Gross last year for the Carolina Panthers and filled in great.
Bengals Bag Five, Move Housh, in early Free Agent Action
11:44 a.m. March 1, 2009
CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) -- Only hours after bringing TJ Houshmanzadeh into the fold, the Cincinnati Bengals shipped the veteran wide reciever to the Atlanta Falcons for a second round pick.
Free of Houshmanzadeh's contract numbers, the Bengals immediately parlayed those savings into a number of veteran players, including former Giants Grey Ruegamer and James Butler, veteran center Matt Birk, and role players Ronald Curry and Keith Davis.
These players join a Bengals roster that has been nearly completely turned over this offseason, save for key franchise players like Carson Palmer and Leon Hall.
Additionally, Co-GM Vengeful Odin had these words to say about the recent Bengal signings.
The Bengals have been one of the more active teams in the early days of free agency.
Jaguars welcome 6'6 260 pound verteran tight end Mark Cambell to the roster. Glad to have him apart of the team

The Ravens broke out their checkbook in order to land the former Tennessee kicker know for his late game heroics. Harbaugh said the following about the strong legged kicker.
The Ravens also signed punter, Chris Hanson who has been a model of consistency in his career in the NFL. He is best known though for hosting NBC Dateline's To Catch a Predator. No wait, that's Chris Hansen.

The Tampa GM had this to add:
The Packers are pleased to welcome WR Andre Davis, OL Pete Kendall, OL Mark Tauscher, RB Kevin Jones, FB Tony Richardson. All were signed for the league minimum. The Packers also welcome LB Andra Davis.
Packers GM gish had the following **** to say, "yeah, they were all cheap as ****. each of them will be a significant contributor to making this team better. If I tell Tony Richardson to block 3 guys at once for the league minimum, then thats exactly what he will do. Andre Davis is already best friends with Aaron Rodgers. they met just now while I was talking, and you can just tell that Andre is gonna catch 15 TDs this year."
Andre Davis and Andra Davis...
Patriots welcome today Bryant Jonhson, signed by New england for 700 k. Jonhson is a big physical receiver who previously played for the niners and the cards
fo sho.....both great pieces for me. I cant believe I got Andre for $300K. The dude is a major threat. I've now got 5 solid WRs.
Yeah he's one of those receivers that has all the tools... but not the stats yet.
Patriots sign Koren Robinson 300 k and Renaldo Hill who previously played for the fins for 400 k
