b) Orton and Campbell have signed. Henne has talked. Therefore there actually is a market outside of those waiting on Manning.

b) was my point. Orton and Campbell were not-bottom-10 QBs last year who have already taken backup money (and in Campbell's case, a shot at the market next season). Garrard might go two weeks without a phone call (it's been like two months already). McNabb might not get a text until June, when Miami is that desperate.

And Flynn might have to re-up with Green Bay if Miami isn't willing to make him their starter.

The Flynn saga is interesting because two reports from his camp suggested that: 1) he's getting interest from Miami and Seattle and 2) he's getting interest from Cleveland and Miami. Ergo, the only interest he's actually getting is Miami. But you always need to give the impression of a second suitor.

Flynn might end up back as GB's backup in 2012 on a one year deal in the Campbell range for money.

They took Lloyd AND Archuletta off our hands, Roy Williams and Marion Barber from Dallas. I'm not shocked at anything they do.

There isn't a shortage of QBs in the league. There is however a shortage on good QBs in the league.

Re: 2012 NFL Free Agency Tracker

Giants signed Dallas TE Martellus Bennet.

Nice pickup for NJ, big loss for Dallas. Sure, they have Witten still, but Bennett was a nice second TE to have and if Witten goes down, they're TE-less.

Not sure I believe that. Also, when it comes time for Stafford to renew his contract, you have to believe that 19mil is going to be the starting point, and most likely looking at 25-27/yr at high end. So combined, you are talking about 40+ mil/yr dedicated to 2 players? That's 1/3 of the salary cap, and dear god let's not even talk about what Suh is going to want come time to renew.

Is CJ worth it? Sure. Is it a smart business move? Absolutely not. I'm glad we aren't making this mistake.

C'mon GTripp. Are you really going to use DMac and Garrard as barometers for whether or not there is a market for QB's?

Orton and JC (at least after Palmer showed up) were both backups last year. To me it is therefore unremarkable that they signed as backups this year. Your argument would be stronger if it were someone like Flacco who could only get a backup gig.
