Jerry Jerry Jerry…thanks for the info for which most of us already know; by the way – per BirdoBeaman, “Technically Q didn’t JUST SIGN with the Rams, he agreed to terms.”

Off the subject for a minute. For the life of me Charlie let John Mayberry be your everyday right fielder. What more must he do? He just crushes the ball.

How can this be?
from NJ.com

The Jets have reached out to the camp of free-agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, according to two people informed of the communication between the sides. These people requested anonymity because of the tenuous nature of negotiations.

Asomugha, a star in Oakland, is the most coveted cornerback in this year’s free agency class.

Paying for Asomugha would be a challenge for the Jets, who have Darrelle Revis under contract for $7 million this season plus an $18 million option bonus and would likely have to sacrifice filling other needs. But never say never with the Jets, who have to be enticed by the potential lockdown duo of Asomugha and Revis. They are also known for doing their due diligence.

Now this is an organization on the rise…They don’t go into a situation with the “I can’t” attitude. They are exploring options to win now.

Look at this…a team with gsolid corners on both sides reaches out…but the team with a suspect secondary and aruably the worse right corner situation in the league does nothing.

I hope you guys see this!!!!!!!

I expect Bradley to sign with the Rams,Chiefs or Vikings to head back to the Midwest for a 3-4 Year Contract for more security than the Eagles would offer..
(I called this back in March for whoever is keeping score.)

Songs, you do know that it takes more than ‘reaching out’ to sign a player. Boy do you jump to conclusions.

My sources state the Jets are throwing Asmo’s name out there to help with their negoitiations with CB Antonio Cromartiie and to drive his price down.. But what do I know..

Panthers over paid for Johnson so now were going to see similar deals to the one he has pretty much setting the market… I like cullen jenkins, hes a good player, he would be my next pick if we were gonna go DE. Corner back it would have to be first Nnamdi or joseph or DRC… LB Nick Barnett would be huge for us… Then DT would have to be Haynesworth or cofield…

Jon Hart.when a player get seriously injured..how much do you think that’s worth?

There’s no such word as overpaid….If the employer pays it…The owner foresees a benefit that will increase revenue.

Eagles could have made some calls to put a few players on stand by…but no.

They really think players will just sit back and be there for the Golden Standard…Aready Ike Turner have agreed to stay in Pittsburgh for less than what he would have gotten on the open market. I wonder why you would never hear such a story from a player who plays in Philadelphia?

anyways

Barry Cofield is headed to D.C. and the Redskins are finalizing a deal that sends Mcnabb to the Vikings…So the Skins are looking to go without Mcnabb or Haynesworth..The Skins are going in a new direction so keep your eyes on them.

Hopefully we get Haynesworth but now the FA pool for Corners are drying up the Eagles better reach out to Joseph and Asmo…because when they one of those guys sign that will really destroy the Eagles’s leverage in the Kolb trade.

where is this so called aggressive Free Agent period
