I say that mostly because they still employ mike wise. Terrible writer and an even worse radio personality. Thank God 1067 canned that garbage he called a radio show.

As I said, Chris Russell said this on the radio tonight. If you want to hear it, you can go to the espn980 audiovault on your computer or use your smartphones podcast app to subscribe to espn980, which is actually great. I listen to it every day to and from work.

That would be fantastic! I can see good players really wanting to come here now and not just for the paycheck. Finally! It would be great to have the cap space to sign them.

byrd man, we need some byrd up in here. keep jackson and merriweather and safety is good. don't know what we're doing at CB though.

i hope this goes away.

I dunno. I think the draw that would have brought them might have just torn his ACL and will be out for the year...

I agree. They also "thought" they had a legitimate shot at winning that court case a while back, so it could all just be bluster for the media.

Yes Jackson is good, but how do you keep around a guy that is suspended indefinately for drug use? He needs to be let go and the franchise needs to continue to build the way they have. We can add a FA or two and draft someone if we need too.

The cap hit would be huge to get back and give the team an opportunity to keep some of the 18 FAs we have coming up. DY, KL, ZoA, Sav, FD, Brandon M?, and restructure of DH. I wanted to get rid of DH, but now if he restructures at (he said he is open to) a lower cap hit I would be open to keeping him.

What gives me hope is that their has been a change of the organizational and player behavior of the franchise. That the current group of players finally realize that with dedication and preparation they can win by staying focused on winning and takin it one game at a time. Not that we didn't have a good work ethic before, but that winning will give them that affirmation.

Chris also said he asked Mike Shanahan today if we would get any of the cap penalty back and he said, "I can't really talk about it because we're still involved in this... I hope that answers your question."

Nice to know that not only did we get to the playoffs without the penalty, but we could be penalty free in 2013. And because of the penalty this year, we got to play a lot of young guys and give them experience, who otherwise wouldn't have gotten it had we filled more holes in free agency.
Maybe that's a lesson learned that you don't always need to go out and chase free agents. I think we need to add a piece here and there but no need to go crazy. A safety would be nice, and a pass rusher too.

I'll believe it when I see it happen. Until then, it'll still hang over our head for the off-season.

I would love for this to happen (behind RG3 being healthy though), but I don't believe it. Our luck; we'd get fined more money out of this lol


And as for Jarius Byrd, he's probably gonna get franchised. Goldson of San Fran is more likely to come here.
