Very nice read. It's always good to read about things athletes go through on a daily basis from an athlete's perspective, instead of a journalist's. That's why I really like to read Bowen's articles, because he can relate to what he's writing about through a unique perspective.

I'm a big fan of Bowen and the folks over at NFP. Much refreshing change from the TMZ-like reporting at PFT.

I would love Mike Wallace since what we need more than anything in a WR is someone who can take the top off of a defense. But he's an RFA so likely is not leaving Pitt.

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Aggressive move by the Raiders to release Stanford Routt, who will be 29 in July. He instantly becomes the best cover corner on the market.

He's more of a man guy than a zone guy though.

Bill Belichick said New England Patriots should make New York Giants throw to Mario Manningham - ESPN Boston

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Well, the old adage is "don't let their best players beat you"...and NY's best receivers are Nicks and Cruz, no offense to Manningham.

Zorn really should just go try and coach college.

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread

Stanford Rout was just released by the Raiders today, i would take a long good look at signing him. He already has visits with the Bills and Titans.

Re: Around the NFL - Offseason thread
