So I guess it is somewhat official with Stevie Johnson and the Bills....

Buffalo Bills, Stevie Johnson agree to 5-year deal, according to source - ESPN

Garcon has had injury problems hasn't he? I really like Colston. VJ is good, but I don't like his baggage and Shanny seems to like character guys. Or who at least he thinks are character guys.

Why is no one considering Meachem?

Not that I'm aware of, he's started all but 5 games the past 3 seasons, certainly no injuries to the extent like Colston has had that's for sure.

Guess I was thinking of Collie and Hernandez.

You know what's crazy, look at some of the top WRs in the free agent market (including Stevie Johnson)

Johnson-7th round pick
Colston-7th round pick
Garcon-6th round pick
Wes Welker-Undrafted
Josh Morgan-6th round pick

You put Josh Morgan in the same list as these guys? I think that's a bit generous. You really think Morgan is going to garner as much attention as these other guys?

Yes he is, he was the best 49ers receiver before he got hurt.

I know he played for them but I thought he was better as a returner than actual receiver. Everyone talks about how pathetic the 49ers receivers are. I just wouldn't have put him that high myself. I mean he's never even broken 700 yards receiving and more than 3 TDs in four seasons in the league.

It just goes to show that nobody ever knows how a wide receiver's career will turn out or any player for that matter. Just look at players like London Fletcher, Arian Foster, Victor Cruz and Miles Austin all of whom are NFL icons but neither of those players were even drafted. Even with young talent, there will always be exceptions outside of the NFL draft.

Most of the stats were under the old regime, before Harbaugh. Morgan can play and I would target him if Vjax is not signed.

Looks like the numbers came out for the Foster and SJ signings:

Arian Foster's contract $43.5M ($20.75M guaranteed) over 5 yrs
Stevie Johnson's contract $36.25M ($19.5M guaranteed) over 5 yrs

Re: Around the NFL: 2012 Off-Season-Free Agency/Trades

I'm just wondering, why doesn't every team with a high profile free agent that isn't using the franchise tag just tag and trade their players that they're not looking to retain? Mario Williams, Matt Flynn, Terell Thomas, and Levi Brown (maybe, not entirely sure how good he is) come to mind. I'm more talking about williams and flynn considering I'm not entirely sure how much would be gotten for brown or thomas and what their FA plan is (I say this because they can get compensatory picks equal to trade value if they do not sign other FAs). But I would be absolutely shocked if Williams or Flynn didn't get at least a 2nd rounder if put on the trading block, which is significantly better than an after the 3rd round pick from compensation.
