Jets | Team involved in talks for S. Rogers
Wed, 27 Feb 2008 19:44:59 -0800

Tom Kowalski, of Mlive.com, reports the New York Jets are involved in trade talks with the Detroit Lions regarding DT Shaun Rogers.

Dolphins | Team interested in S. Rogers
Wed, 27 Feb 2008 19:43:43 -0800

Tom Kowalski, of Mlive.com, reports the Miami Dolphins are showing interest in Detroit Lions DT Shaun Rogers, according to a source close to the situation.


Buccaneers | Team has about $40 million in salary cap space
Wed, 27 Feb 2008 20:25:05 -0800

The St. Petersburg Times reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have about $40 million in salary cap space when the free-agent market opens Friday, Feb. 29.


okay, this is tonight's biggest news. the jets have been trying to run a 3-4 with a ton of 4-3 personnel, and it hasn't worked... at all. the #1 they used on a DT is a bust, and they desperately need a nose tackle, which they probably aren't going to find in the draft when they pick... so they need a name or good luck on a lower round pick, and the safer route is obviously more appealing, since they missed badly last time.

meanwhile, the dolphins getting rogers would mean they're looking at either ryan, long, or long... i don't think they have enough to make ryan successful yet, so i'd bet on one of the longs. jason taylor, long, rogers would be crazy, and honestly locks at DE are harder to find. the other long (OT) is VERY safe too... outside chance at mcfadden, but peterson was much better and the guy they got aint bad, so i'm kinda doubting that idea.

I guess signing AND drafting a DT might happen, but traylor (DT) and roth (DE) are the guys that needed to be replaced yesterday.

they'll probably try to sign a WR like berrian and draft a QB like henne or flacco in the top of the 2nd round (one or both should be available).

That was the pick they got for Randy Moss. Perhaps a mistake to mortgage the farm for what they got back.

Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

whats stupid is sometimes WRs take 3-4 years, so he might actually figure it out after being dumped for a bag of chips.

of course, that staff probably has the best knowledge on his potential.

Vikings | Berrian on the wish list?
Thu, 28 Feb 2008 05:51:11 -0800

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports soon-to-be unrestricted free-agent WR Bernard Berrian (Bears) is expected to receive strong interest from the Minnesota Vikings when the free-agent market begins.

Bears | Berrian turns down $25 million offer
Thu, 28 Feb 2008 05:50:22 -0800

Brad Biggs, of the Chicago Sun-Times, reports Chicago Bears WR Bernard Berrian, who is soon to be an unrestricted free agent, was offered a five-year deal from the Bears worth $25 million. The deal included $8 million in the form of a signing bonus. Berrian, however, turned the proposal down and will test the free-agent water.



being the best WR that's a true FA, berrian will get a minimum of 30mill/5 year, 12mill guaranteed... if no one overpays.

NFL | T. Green cleared to play in 2008
Thu, 28 Feb 2008 10:14:34 -0800

Jay Glazer, of FOXSports.com, reports unrestricted free-agent QB Trent Green has been cleared to play football in 2008. During an exclusive interview with FOXSports.com, Green said he was cleared to play last week by Dr. Cantu, one of the most well-known neurosurgeons in the country. Dr. Cantu said Green did not show any symptoms after tests taken by Cantu and said there is no reason that Green shouldn't play. Green said he wants to play again because he has a small window of opportunity. "I've talked to a number of former players and guys who have been long retired and some recently retired for help on this and they all said the same thing, 'If you can keep playing and you want to keep going then keep playing. You only have one window for your career and once that window closes, there's no going back. It's over.'" Trent said his family supports his decision to return to football and said a few teams have talked to him about signing him as the No. 2 quarterback, while other teams have spoken with him about competing for the starting job. He also said he has not had any symptoms of the concussion he suffered in the 2007 season.

Titans | Troupe likely to become free agent
Thu, 28 Feb 2008 11:11:25 -0800

Adam Caplan, of Scout.com, reports the Tennessee Titans are likely to pass on re-signing TE Ben Troupe. Troupe is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent Friday, Feb. 29.

Titans | Scaife receives tender
Thu, 28 Feb 2008 11:10:23 -0800

Adam Caplan, of Scout.com, reports the Tennessee Titans placed a second-round tender on TE Bo Scaife Thursday, Feb. 28.


Troupe is a guy we should seriously consider. Huge upgrade at #2 TE... 6'4" 270 lbs, good numbers for a #2 TE, age 25, shouldn't be very expensive. improves tyler ecker/todd yoder's spot dramatically.

troupe is the first guy i've seen that i'd really like that's not franchised or trade bait. i mean, dyson and hackett are other guys i'd like to have too, but troupe would actually be a little bit more than a stop gap.

Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

Ecker may be a pleasant surprise. I heard he's really been impressing people at Redskins Park. How exactly? I don't know.

Free Agent Update

Todd Collins is set to hit the free agent market and will draw heavy interest from Jacksonville and St. Louis among others. He will likely let the Skins match any offer, and we'll see where the money goes. Coach Jim Zorn flew to Quincy, Mass. today to Todd's home, to meet with him, league sources said, but the sides have no deal and he's ready to test the waters.

Skins have talked recently to agents for Reche Caldwell, Jason Fabini and Derrick Frost as well. All will hit the market (Skins did not budge on their offer to Frost, he's rejected it and the Skins will monitor him through free agency). Not many other free agent punters out there, but don't see Frost garnering much interest. Pierson Prioleau and Randall Godfrey could be moving on.

Around the league, the trade market is cooking and those D Tackles are moving fast. Sources say Stroud and Rogers could be swapped and Jacksonville looking for at least a second rounder for Stroud and would retain him unless value is offered. Corey Williams has been traded to Cleveland - it will be announced come midnight, sources said, and another name player, Jon Vilma, is very very close to beaing dealt to the Saints (Sources said the Skins nosed around on him but nothing serious).

DeAngelo Hall is still out there but I would be surprised if the Skins stepped up to the point of getting that done, but you never know in this wacky business.

jason la, redskins insider.
