SENSABAUGH ARRESTED WITH THREE GUNS IN HIS CAR

Posted by Mike Florio on February 17, 2009, 4:37 p.m. EST

Jaguars safety Gerald Sensabaugh will become an unrestricted free agent on February, February 27.

On Friday, February 13, his luck turned bad — for the third straight year.

Sensabaugh was arrested in his hometown of Kingsport, Tennessee for driving his Bentley on a suspended license.

His initial arrest in the NFL came nearly two years ago in Kingsport. At that time, Sensabaugh was busted for speeding and carrying a firearm without a permit.

But maybe his luck was actually pretty good on Friday the 13th. This time around, Sensabaugh also had a gun in the car. Actually, he had three of them — a Bersa .380-cal. pistol, an AK-47, and a Glock .22-cal. handgun.

And. for reasons neither known nor apparent, he faces no weapons charges.

Last year, Sensabaugh was arrested in Kingsport for reckless driving after being found doing wheelies on a motorcycle.

So while Sensabaugh has been arrested so often in Kingsport that they’re about to name the back seat of a cruiser after him, the fact that he’s done no time suggests that someone there likes him.

So much for the Suggs dream...

RAVENS WILL TAG TERRELL
Posted by Mike Florio on February 17, 2009, 9:53 p.m. EST
With three linebackers poised to hit free agency, the Baltimore Ravens faced a trilemma regarding the use of the franchise tag.

They could use it on Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, or Bart Scott.

The choice, barring a long-term deal by Thursday at 4:00 p.m. EST, is Suggs.

“If we don’t have a deal, we will franchise him,” Ravens G.M. Ozzie Newsome told Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times. [Editor’s note: Hey, I know him.]

Using the tag on Suggs will cost $10.2 million under the 20069 salary cap — and necessarily will mean that, absent a long-term deal, Lewis and Scott and other free agents (such as safety Jim Leonhard) will hit the open market.


http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...l-tag-terrell/

I'll take Leonhard and Scott as consolation prizes...

BRAD VAN PELT PASSES AWAY

Posted by Aaron Wilson on February 18, 2009, 10:22 a.m. EST

Retired New York Giants linebacker Brad Van Pelt has died of a heart attack at age 58, according to the New York Daily News.

The five-time Pro Bowl selection died Tuesday in California.

A former second-round draft pick out of Michigan State in 1973, Van Pelt played for the Giants for 11 seasons. He also had stints with the Los Angeles Raiders and the Cleveland Browns.

He was named the Giants’ player of the decade for the 1970s.

Van Pelt also played basketball and baseball at Michigan State.

Funeral arrangements haven’t been announced yet.

REPORT: BUCS WILL TAG BRYANT

Posted by Mike Florio on February 18, 2009, 10:35 a.m. EST

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to apply the franchise tag to receiver Antonio Bryant by Thursday’s 4:00 p.m. EST deadline.

Our guess is that he’ll promptly sign the one-year offer of $9.488 million, which will make the money fully guaranteed.

HAYNESWORTH TO HIT THE MARKET

Posted by Mike Florio on February 18, 2009, 11:57 a.m. EST

If the Tennessee Titans manage to re-sign defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, it won’t happen until after Haynesworth has seen what other teams are willing to pay.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, Haynesworth won’t do a deal with the Titans until after he tests the market.

Schefter says that a “host” of teams are expected to make a play for Haynesworth, one of the top free agents of the 2009 class, and that Haynesworth’s deal could average roughly $12 million per year with guaranteed money in excess of $30 million.

We still believe that the principle of caveat emptor applies here, especially in the wake of last week’s revelation that, four days after being placed on probation, Haynesworth allegedly caused an automobile accident by driving his Ferrari at a high rate of speed.

For more on the concerns teams should have about making a guy who didn’t become a force until he was playing to get paid the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL, here’s a recent thing we did for SportingNews.com.

I would hate to sign this guy, that kind of bust could set a franchise back years.

Baltimore resigned Dwan Edwards. Damn, he would've been a great fit.

There's no point in looking at Haynesworth as we're going 3-4 eventually, if not this year.

I agree....with the money he will command, it is just too much of a risk....I have always been worried how Haynesworth will play once he is not chasing the carrot (the mega deal).

He is absolutely dominating when motivated....but once he gets paid, he may start to coast.

Chargers tag RB Sproles as franchise player

Posted: Adam Schefter | Adam Schefter | Tags: Antonio Bryant, Darren Sproles, San Diego Chargers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Chargers took a major step to resolve their running back issues. They designated Darren Sproles as their franchise player, which will limit his free-agent options but guarantee him $6.621 million for the 2009 season.

Most believed the Chargers couldn’t afford to pay both Sproles and starting RB LaDainian Tomlinson. But the Chargers made sure they could.

Also, the Buccaneers officially tagged WR Antonio Bryant as their franchise player.

Sorry if this has already been brought up, but


Cooper Carlisle is available in FA. What do you guys think about bringing him on board for depth and/or competition? He would add some bulk to our line and I thought he was great here before leaving in FA.

He's only 295, and O-line is the least of our problems. Still, depth is never a bad thing, so if he didn't cost much, then we could bring him in to be a backup guard.

COLTS TO CUT MARVIN SOON

Posted by Mike Florio on February 18, 2009, 10:15 p.m. EST

In a move that has developed a feel of inevitability, the Indianapolis Colts soon will be parting ways with receiver Marvin Harrison.

Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that the move will be made at some point before the start of the 2009 league year.

The problem is that Harrison has a $13.4 million cap figure for 2009. A full $7 million results from his base salary; thus, cutting him will create $7 million in cap space.

It’s possible that Harrison could dramatically reduce his salary and stick around. But there has been no talk along these lines.

If released, Harrison would become an unrestricted free agent. It remains to be seen whether another team would be interested, given his knee problems from the 2007 season and the lingering allegation that he fired a gun at another person on a Philadelphia street last year.

Before the 2007 season, Harrison was on pace to break all of Jerry Rice’s career receiving records, if he had continued to perform at a high level for several more years.

Regardless, Harrison has done more than enough to land in the Hall of Fame — even if at some point he lands in jail.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Pro Bowl punter Shane Lechler has agreed to a four-year contract to stay with the Oakland Raiders, the Associated Press has learned.

Lechler could have become an unrestricted free agent next week after being chosen to the AFC's Pro Bowl team for the fourth time in his nine-year career. The Raiders didn't disclose financial terms of the deal, but it's believed to make Lechler the highest-paid punter in NFL history.

REPORT: BUCS TO CHASE HAYNESWORTH

Posted by Mike Florio on February 19, 2009, 11:34 a.m.

According to our friends at Pewter Report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are expected to be one of the teams to pursue free-agent defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

Word surfaced on Wednesday that Haynesworth, perhaps the biggest name on the market this year, won’t re-sign with the Tennessee Titans before testing the market.

All that said, we continue to have serious reservations about investing so much money into a player who was AWOL for most of the first five years of his career, with the glaring exception of the day that he tried to remove Andre Gurode’s face from his skull with a cleated shoe.

Factoring in recent allegations of a second high-speed driving incident – only four days after being placed on probation for the first one – and we think that the risk of a downturn in performance or an off-field problem, or both, is too high.

And as we told the fine folks (actually, we don’t know them all that well, so we shouldn’t assume that they’re fine) at ESPN Radio in Austin on Thursday morning, the team to watch in all of this is the Detroit Lions.

With plenty of cap space and a desperate need to do something/anything to create some offseason excitement, the Lions should be one of the major players for Haynesworth. The fact that former Titans defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is the new head coach in Detroit makes such a move even more no-brainer for a franchise that has grown all too accustomed to operating without a brain.

Here’s the key – if despite the connection to Schwartz and the obvious need to create positive buzz and improve the team the Lions don’t make a play for Haynesworth, any other team out there should be even more concerned about plunking down so much money at a time when there’s no guarantee that the guy that the Titans saw for the first five years of his career won’t resurface once the bonus check clears.

If Haynesworth is worth the money he wants, the Titans or Schwartz will give it to him. If they don’t, it’s all the more reason for others to be tread lightly.

TITANS TO TAG TIGHT END

Posted by Mike Florio on February 19, 2009, 7:57 a.m.

With kicker Rob Bironas signed to a long-term deal, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth ineligible for the tag, and a $14.65 million franchise tender applicable quarterbacks, the Titans will be turning to a tight end as the recipient of their 2009 franchise tag.

According to Adam Schefter of NFL Network, the Titans will use the restriction on Bo Scaife.

Scaife, a four-year veteran, had his best NFL season in 2008, catching 58 passes for 561 yards in an offense lacking many/any high-end wideout options.

For tight ends, the franchise tag requires a one-year tender offer in the amount of $4.462 million, which is the average of the five highest-paid tight ends from 2008: Tony Gonzalez ($5.031 million); L.J. Smith ($4.522 million); Kellen Winslow ($4.449 million); Antonio Gates ($4.2 million); and Jason Witten ($4.105 million).

TEXANS TAG DUNTA

Posted by Mike Florio on February 19, 2009, 11:54 a.m. EST

The Houston Texans have joined the game of tag, becoming the eleventh team to use the franchise designation on one of their impending free agents.

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle and Adam Schefter of NFL Network, the Texans have applied the tag to cornerback Dunta Robinson.

The move makes Robinson eligible for a one-year contract, with a salary of $9.957 million. If he accepts the tender, the salary is fully guaranteed.

Not bad for a guy who’s knee exploded 15 months ago.

The number represents the average of the five highest 2008 cap numbers at the position. It comes from the following quintet of corners: Champ Bailey, $12.19 million; Chris McAlister, $10.9 million; Nnamdi Asomugha, $9.765 million; Asante Samuel, $8.645 million; Patrick Surtain, $8.28 million.

REPORT: HAWKS TO TAG HILL

Posted by Mike Florio on February 19, 2009, 12:51 p.m. EST

And now there are twelve.

According to John Clayton of ESPN, the Seattle Seahawks have applied the franchise tag to linebacker Leroy Hill.

The Seahawks made the move despite the fact that Hill was arrested last month for marijuana possession. If/when he’s convicted of the offense (or if he pleads guilty), he’ll likely be suspended for one game under the NFL’s substance abuse policy.

As the franchise player at linebacker, Hill will be eligible for a one-year contract with a salary in the amount of $8.304 million. It comes from the average of the five highest-paid linebackers in 2008 based on cap numbers: Ray Lewis ($9.428 million); Terrell Suggs ($8.475 million); Karlos Dansby ($8.065 million); Keith Bulluck ($7.858 million); and Keith Brooking ($7.692 million).
