I thought the rule was that you could use any 1st rounder you like, but if someone offers a lower first rounder than they get the player? I seem to remember the Falcons trading down when getting Abraham? Guess I remembered that situation wrong.
You know what you're right about Abraham...oh well, self imposed 20 minute ban

Adam Schefter ‏ @AdamSchefter
Broncos will use their franchise tag today on kicker Matt Prater.

Not earth shattering news but I was kind of hoping we would target him. Oh well...could be in for another year of GaNO.

So if you don't have a pick you can't go get one and you can't go get another pick and trade it.

I think you are right on there Smoot. Pat K and Tim R were talking about a scenario such as this on Moving the Chains last week or so.

Man, what's with this talk of the Pats having an interest in Mario Williams. Can someone prevent this from happening?

I still think we should sign Scobee to be our new kicker.

Let's hope they forget. At this point he looks like our best option in the FA wide receiver market.

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

Looks like AZ's Levi Brown will hit the free agent market. From ESPN Rumors:

"Levi on the way out?
3:17
PM ET
Levi Brown | Cardinals

The way that the Arizona Cardinals' contract with OT Levi Brown was written, it was supposed to bring the two sides together prior to the final season on the books (which happens to be 2012), at which point they'd decide to re-negotiate or part ways. In other words, there's no way that Brown will be playing this fall under the current terms of his deal, causing a cap hit of nearly $17 million.

The team and the Brown camp has been working to come to an agreement, but according to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, those efforts have yet to yield a new deal, and it's likely that the team will release the OT and hit free agency.

Interestingly enough, given the other LT options available this offseason, the 27-year-old Brown may be the most sought after. As for the Cardinals, they can shop for a veteran replacement, hope that a viable alternative lasts until the No. 13 overall pick or promote another option from within, with Rex Hadnot and D'Anthony Batiste as possibilities.
