Giants have officially signed former pro bowl LB Thomas Davis for 1M at 1225
Given the events of earlier tonight, I don’t think anyone can blame me for making announcements.
Browns welcome into the fold:
RB Willis McGahee
DE Stephen Bowen
DB Bryant McFadden
OC Lyle Sendlein
LB Brandon Siler
Browns had prepared to roll out the welcome mat for KR Yamon Figurs, but his plane was diverted to Minnesota due to terrorist hijacking.
The Broncos would like to welcome the following players:
OG David Baas ($500K)
OT David Stewart ($3.5M)
LB Paris Lenon ($500K)
TE Daniel Graham ($500K)
David Baas will start at left guard moving Zane Beadles to a utility man at guard and tackle. On the other side, David Stewart will start at right tackle to help open holes with Chris Kuper for recently acquired Maurice Jones-Drew. The return of Daniel Graham, whom many consider to be the best blocking tight end in the league, will help the Broncos run-game tremendously. Paris Lenon will likely start at OLB in teams new 4-3 defense.
Nice list dude. Id start Beadles somewhere, hes too good not to, as he can play either G spot or RT but thats my opinion. Overall though solid job
The Cardinals are excited to welcome:
Davin Josepth, OG, $4,000,000
Ahmad Bradshaw, HB, $5,000,000
I am contemplating on how to handle the OL still. While Baas can play both guard and center, Beadles can play both guard and tackle. My mind may change on who starts and who is the 6th man, so to speak.
C Jonathan Goodwin
FB Heath Evans
LB Scott Shanle
TE David Thomas
DE Jeff Charleston
The New York Giants would like to welcome the young dirty bastard known as Tony Brown for just 700k. Every team needs a dirty bastard who is a good player and now we have one to call our own.
damn good pick up. i was kicking myself for having 10 bids out, because i couldnt bid on him.
If I wasn't a 3-4 team I would have bid on him! Great signing and an absolute bargain.
Rams would like to welcome a damn good all around TE in Kevin Boss. Probably over paid for him, but with this TE market and Rams available cap, 3.5 Mil was well worth it.
Rams would also like to welcome the following
Mark Clayton - $500K - Was having a damn fine season with over 300 yards in only 5 games before getting injured last season. Was clicking with Sam Bradford rather nicely.
Leon Washington - $300,000.00 - 1st season back from knee injury and he struggled. Usually takes 2 seasons to come back fully from that type of injury. Expected to be the speed back the Rams need behind Jackson. Also had 3 KR touchdowns last season. a steal for $300 K!
Matt Moore - $300,000.00 - Solid backup for only 300 K. Still young also.
Stylez G. White - $300,000.00 - This guy has 24 sacks the last 4 seasons. Great back up and situational pass rusher. Take those for $300 K allllll night!
Nicely done rams. I wanted boss back if the price was right but I felt I had upgraded the position already so I really couldn't justify going over 3m. Washington Clayton and white were very good singings at that price. It can't always be about the stars, depth is important too
C, Jason Spitz- $400,000
WR, Nate Washington- $500,000
K, Robbie Gould- $300,000
P, Jason BAker- $300,000
I was sad that I had to let Kalil walk, but I feel like Spitz would be a good fit for my WC pass heavy offense. From what I hear, he is a terrible run blocker, but is an above average pass blocking center.
Nate Washington had 42 rec. almost 700 yards, and 6 TD this year in the Titans offense? Not bad for someone that had Vince Young and Kerry Collins throwing to him. He's going to be the perfect slot receiver I was looking for.
Steelers GM takes a break from the action which he is still very active in to announce a few signings
Tom Pestock OG a very good developmental guard at min, big and physical w/ training in MMA and martial arts
Devin Aromashodu Wr Devin is a very good complimentary wr that is solid 5th or 6th receiver at min $
Michael Jenkins Wr Has not reached potential but is very capable #4 receiver for us at great $
Richie Incognito OG/C will play center for us, has an attitude on the field we like and showed restraint last year
Evan Moore Te underutilized and undervalued solid #2 TE
Steve Breaston Wr Stock thru the roof last year nagging injuries hurt in 10 but feel with us he will flourish
Overall no real sexy moves but the meat and potatoes moves the steelers are built on
The Broncos welcome Daryl Smith for $1.0M, who will likely line up at strongside linebacker in the Broncos 4-3 defense.
The giants would like to welcome another dirty bastard; Harvey Dahl. Dahl is one of the games best guards as he can play in space or in tight quarters.
Dahl is an excellent signing.
Jacksonville Jaguars would like to welcome
CB- Antonio Cromartie
CB- Cedric Griffin
QB- Drew Stanton
K- Josh Scobee
WR- James Jones
LB- Clark Haggans
Rob Bironas K $300,000.00
Sav Rocca P $300,000.00
Sage Rosenfels QB $300,000.00
Bo Sciafe TE $300,000.00
Ken Amato LS $300,000.00
Jake Scott OG $3,000,000.00
Akin Ayodele LB $300,000.00
take your pay cuts and like them!!!
After a long wait, the Cleveland Browns welcome OL Marshal Yanda to the team. A versatile offensive lineman, he was drafted to play right guard, and did so at a high level. Later, when Michael Oher was moved to left tackle, Yanda switched to right tackle and played admirably, even expressing a desire to play the position indefinitely.
The Browns will honor Yanda’s request and will field him at right tackle, where he will anchor his side of the offensive line for years to come.
Stanford Routt is officially a New York Giant after an intense bidding war over his services. Routt was among the league leaders in completion percentage against, finishing third overall in the stat. The giants are excited to bring him aboard
Pffft, Yanda is superior.
Another good signing, Boik. Just watch out for those penalties.
The Philadelphia Eagles would like to welcome Richard Seymour aboard.
Dahl only had 4, the same amount as Yanda. Dahl just gets away with a lot more stuff if you watch him play. Hes a sneaky SOB who knows how to work the rulebook lol. And for the record I wouldnt say one is necessarily better then the other since they play different positions and both excel and are rated very well. I just have no use for Yanda as a RT when I have the games best RT already in Kareem McKenzie
I meant Routt.
The Giants would also like to announce the signing of Thomas Howard, linebacker for $800,000. Howard will bring steady play vs the run and in coverage.
If you suddenly need a convenient reason to exit the thread, go fix the Marlins thread title: “Still better than the Mets”.
If I fix what I didnt do, I promise you it will be in worse shape then it was in before cause thats just how I roll
Ok ill go fix it...only cause I am a nice guy.
Hope thats better Desides
Hanley Ramirez will thank you in person on April 1, a few minutes after 7:10 PM.
Edit: I can’t deny the truth of that title, but man up and change it to what Mainge originally wrote!
You obviously havent seen the new thread title
You obviously haven’t seen my ninja edit!
The Cardinals are excited to welcome to Arizona:
Bobbie Williams, OG, 300k
Melvin Bullitt, S, 300k
Oh you didnt know Hanley was getting traded too?
All kidding aside it is kinda sad. I should rename the Mets thread "Your 2011 New York Mets: The year Bernie Made Off!"
Took you a while to think of that one, eh?
Rams would like to welcome 2 high quality defensive players.
First being LB Takeo Spikes. Rams signed Spikes to play the SOLB position for them. What a steal he was for only 300 K. He brings veteran leadership and high play despite him being 34 years old. Spikes had 103 Tackles and 3 INTs last season. Paring him with Lofa Tatupu and James Laurinaitis. This makes this a very very very good LB corp.
Final signing of the day was a bit of a suprise. S Chris Hope. At 3.5 million, he was a little more expensive then expected. But considering he had over 100 tackles last season. Hes going to fit in nicely at the strong safety position for the Rams. Pairing Hope with O.J. Atogwe, makes this a vaunted back fiend.
