Looks like he is trying to backtrack now.

The only player on the list of players they lost worth mentioning was Keenan Lewis and Mike Wallace. Wallace was not worth the amount. Hampton and Harrison were old and done... Remember how they were going to struggle after losing Joey Porter? I don't think anyone in Pitt remembers Joey Porter. Starks was getting old and didn't look good this entire year. I am sure they will be fine.

Baltimore has the potential of losing half of their defense and Cincy is in it. I like Cincy. I just think they will always be an almost team.

The only concern for Pitt that I have is if they can keep Big Ben healthy. If he stays healthy they will have a shot at a superbowl. They are just that team that when you forget about them (like the Giants) they end up winning a superbowl or making a playoff run.

Anything can happen, that is why I am not going to count out Pitt. Any team with an elite QB has a chance for a superbowl.

Indy lost an important receiver in Avery, and I am not so sure about the coaching situation. They just seemed to be the typical overachiever and feel good story and I don't think they will have a consistent winning team. But we will see. Plus the colts are making a lot of noise right now. A lot of changes sometimes is not always a good thing.

Should be interesting with Houston. Schaub is still there which makes me question them but most people were questioning Flacco all the way to the superbowl.

...or maybe his quotes were taken out of context. Reporters are very good at doing that sort of thing.

Their running game got better with Dwyer and Redmen. Jason Worilds was a beast at VA. Tech and he will step in for Harrison and they won't miss a beat. Steelers always have a drafted guy that's ready to take over for an older vet that's on his way out.

Good teams usually have players who haven't had much playing time, but who the coaches believe will be ready to step into a role. I expect both Pitt and Baltimore to have those guys on their roster, and I think the Skins may finally be getting to that place too. Just because a guy doesn't beat out an all-pro who is established on the roster doesn't mean that he won't be able to become an all-pro in his own right.

With all that said I would be remiss if I didn't say F Mara and the Giants, stupid a-holes, not only getting rid of 36 million of our cap money, but for turning an undrafted free agent into a player worth a first round pick.

That's one way to look at it, the "profit" from flipping Cruz. However, how do they replace his production? Even if they use that 1st-round pick on a WR, that's a position with probably the highest rate of draft busts. Cruz has become one of the most productive WRs in the game and you don't just plug-and-play with that caliber of a player.

They really screwed themselves by paying both Eli and the often-injured and less productive than Cruz WR named Nicks. They can't afford to pay both Nicks AND Cruz #1 WR money and they both demand it.

Cruz is likely leaving NJ.

I believe the teams around the league have been waiting for Wallace, Jennings and Welker's deals to be done before moving onto Cruz who might take a little more money because they'll have to outbid the Giants, but with their cap situation, it can be done.

The Giants can get big value for Cruz...BUT they can't replace him on the field.

Re: Around the NFL Free Agency Thread 2013

Just a little late on that news, bud.

The Colts are making some great moves, especially in the secondary, that's 3 solid DBs signed. Landry is a great player when healthy. I think they'll really regret the 4 years though. I'm glad someone overpaid so we were priced out of the risk. I loved LaRon when he was here but it was just an experiment that failed and it wouldn't be wise to try it again. I don't know if we'll ever see another season like he had last year, playing all 16 games. Interesting how he could never get on the field here, but when he was playing for a contract, suddenly he's healthy.

I'd love to see him on the field for us again but the risk that once paid he'll go back to the old LaRon is just too high. What we need now are safeties who can stay healthy. We already have a similar situation with Meriweather. We've seen what happens when we're playing 2nd and 3rd-string safeties as starters...please, not again.

We need to get some of these CBs in FA...there's a TON of quality CBs available. Then in the draft...hit the safety positions hard.

14 million for Landry? Not sure what Indy was thinking on that one. He's a good player but he gets exposed in coverage. But good for him. Glad he's been able to stay healthy and get paid.
