Latest FA news from KFFL

I'll try to keep this up to date on FA signings, contracts, and possible interest (though they tend to mention everyone and their brother as interested in every player) there'll be another thread for draft info when i see something worth posting there.

Vikings | Williamson allowed to seek trade options
Fri, 22 Feb 2008 10:14:09 -0800

John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports Minnesota Vikings WR Troy Williamson has been given permission by the team to shop himself in a trade.

Canter would like to have a trade agreed upon prior to the start of the free agency period.

Patriots | Team declines Stallworth's option

Fri, 22 Feb 2008 09:53:42 -0800

Karen Guregian and John Tomase, of the Boston Herald, report the New England Patriots declined to pick up the option of WR Donte' Stallworth Friday, Feb. 22. Stallworth was scheduled to receive $6 million Sunday, Feb. 24, and an additional $2 million March 1. Stallworth is now free to negotiate with any NFL team.

Cardinals | Team will honor Fitzgerald's contract
Sat, 23 Feb 2008 16:56:24 -0800
During an interview at the NFL Scouting Combine, Arizona Cardinals vice president of football operations Rod Graves said he does not believe it was a mistake to structure WR Larry Fitzgerald's contract the way they did. "There's not many of the players taken in the top three that actually go on to be two and three-time Pro Bowlers during their rookie contract. So Larry has earned the right to be where he is and I think the contract is a good one for us. It recognizes his accomplishments. It is what it is. He has earned the right to be where he is and we also determined that if we should be at this point, we'd be back at the bargaining table to work out a long-term deal that was a little more palatable for the organization." When asked if the team would swallow the contract if no extension could be worked out, Graves said: "Yes, we will."

just some WR news. stallworth is an interesting option, though he IS a tin can... fitz ain't happening, and williamson probably isn't worth bothering with.

Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

Bears extend desmond clark (te) for two more years at a total of 5mill$
they also extended re-signed orton for two more years (who cares?)

denver post is reporting we're trying for chad johnson, but javon walker and jerry porter could be fall back options.

all three of those guys have had locker room issues recently, and walker's been injured too, so besides CJ, i'm not sure i'd want them... walker could be a huge steal, since his market value is dreadful right now and he could still be a 1000-1200 yard guy.

Hi, I'm Asante Samuel. Pay me $ 100M. Did you see my dropped INT in the SB that would've clinched a SB win and 19-0 season ?????

Re: Latest FA news from KFFL

I have a feeling the Skins already have deals in place with Hackett and Florence, as evident in this PFT post.

One of the rumors making the rounds at the Scouting Combine is, as reported by Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com, that the 49ers are negotiating (four days early) with defensive end Justin Smith.

Other players who, as the rumor mill goes, might already have deals include receiver Bernard Berrian, cornerback Drayton Florence, and receiver D.J. Hackett.

Then again, it could be that their agents are merely trying to drive up interest by spreading the word that a deal is done.

For any players who have not been released by their current teams, discussion between new teams and the players (or their agents) constitute tampering. Virtually everyone does it, primarily because no one ever gets caught.

Personally I don't doubt that theres some truth to that. However I've learned over the years to take whatever PFT says with a grain of salt. PFT is known for putting a lot of stuff out there, all for the sake of getting readers. In my opinion they're the least credible source for football news and information as seen in their famous "Terry Bradshaw is dead" incident. The group also whines that people keep on steeling their "inside scoops" and if you look on thier website they are the least professional and objective source of information out there.

In all honesty, what kind of professional site has a section entitled "turd watch?"

Seahawks | Team offering Trufant six-year deal
Mon, 25 Feb 2008 23:10:50 -0800

Frank Hughes, of the Tacoma News Tribune, reports the Seattle Seahawks are offering franchise free-agent CB Marcus Trufant a six-year deal worth less than San Francisco 49ers CB Nate Clements received over five years, according to league sources. Negotiations between the team and Trufant have stalled and may not resume until New England Patriots CB Asante Samuel signs and establishes the market for cornerbacks. The Seahawks were hoping to sign Trufant to a multi-year deal so they could free up some of the money tied up due to the franchise tag on Trufant. Sources indicated the team's offer was well below the $43 million Clements will earn in the first five years of his eight-year contract.

Seahawks | Hackett unlikely to return to team
Mon, 25 Feb 2008 23:05:48 -0800

Hackett's agent, Kevin Robinson, said, "We are going to test the market. I won't rule out Seattle as a destination but we are going to test the market and see what's out there."
