Arizona has taken a few steps back this offseason.

Kurt Warner retires, Anquan Boldin gets traded, Antrel Rolle gets cut, and Karlos Dansby leaves via fee agency.

Even though Warner played at a high level for most of the season, he is getting very old and he's not the most durable QB. He's a concussion away from losing your starting QB and the cap space for the season. Losing Dansby hurts and Rolle was streaky but they are very well coached and I suspect they are going to rebuild early rather then waste several years believing they are a few players away. Something the Broncos should have done along time ago.

I'm interested to see what Matt Leinart will do when he is given a full season as the starter.

The Lions are on the verge of acquiring cornerback Chris Houston from the Falcons for a sixth-round pick and a switch of draft positions in the fifth round, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported today. Schefter reported the deal should be complete Monday.

Houston's problem is the same as Karl Paymah's. He consistently wouldn't get his head turned in time to make plays on the ball.

I think the first one possibly helped trigger some of the others. They're officially into rebuilding mode now as they try to see if they can turn Leinart into anything approaching what Warner was.....

Of course I keep forgetting that no-one needs to worry about the cap any more, but maybe teams are still acting as if there is one on the assumption that no cap is a one-year thing....

Holmgren acquires Seneca Wallace

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...eneca-wallace/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 8, 2010 8:18 PM ET

Though he's likely not the long-term answer at the quarterback position, veteran Seneca Wallace is now a member of the Browns.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Browns have struck a deal with the Seahawks for Wallace, who was drafted in 2003 when Cleveland president Mike Holmgren served as head coach in Seattle.

Other terms of the deal are not yet known.

The move means that one of the two top quarterback on the depth chart from 2009 -- Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson -- undoubtedly will be gone, sooner rather than later. At worst, Wallace will surely be No. 2 on the depth chart.

He also provides an intriguing Wildcat option, especially with Josh Cribbs on the team. Together they could be a Ronnie Brown/Ricky Williams-type combination.

Colts dump starting guard Ryan Lilja
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 8, 2010 5:34 PM ET
Colts center Jeff Saturday disagreed with President Bill Polian's suggestion that the team's offensive line struggled in the Super Bowl.

But Polian is the one that makes personnel decisions, and he spoke loud and clear by releasing starting guard Ryan Lilja Monday, according to Alex Marvez of Fox.

Lilja was due a $1.73 million bonus soon, but the move is still surprising. He started every game for the Colts last season and is only 28 years old.

Ultimately, the Colts need better run blockers and Polian decided Lilja was only going to get in the way with a hefty base salary. Polian trusts the team's ability to develop players and he's usually right.

That trust allows Polian to make strong statements in print and on the transaction wire.

No way in hell they'll let things go the way of pro baseball. Especially with the way the NHL took care of business and is rebounding.

The Philadelphia Eagles traded wide receiver Reggie Brown to Tampa Bay for the Buccaneers' sixth-round pick in 2011.

The two sides have been discussing the deal the past few days and consummated it Monday, giving the Buccaneers another veteran wide receiver with free agent Antonio Bryant not expected to return.

The 29-year-old Brown has 177 career receptions and 17 touchdowns.

Brown was selected third in the second round of the 2005 draft after playing four years at the University of Georgia.

The Raiders released Greg Ellis and Javon Walker. Ellis is up there in age but I thought he played OK for the Raiders last year. It would be kind of cool to resign Vonnie Holliday and get Greg Ellis pairing the former Tar Heels together again. I think they have one year of pass rushing left in them. I couldn't see Ellis as anything more then a third down pass rushing end for us. I know that is what Jarvis Green is rumored to be for us, but should we not land him Ellis would be a cheap option to fill that role.

Walker was a disappointment right from the start after signing a $55 million contract that included an $11 million signing bonus two years ago.

He caught 15 passes for 196 yards and one touchdown in two injury-plagued seasons in Oakland, while being paid $14 million.

The Raiders were hoping to have added a No. 1 receiver when they signed Walker. He had 89 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2004 for Green Bay and 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight scores in 2006 in Denver. He injured his knee in 2007 and never was the same player again.

He was criticized almost from the start in 2008 by former Raiders coach Lane Kiffin for being out of shape in offseason workouts and then was seriously injured in June during a robbery in Las Vegas.

He contemplated retirement in his first training camp before being talked out of it by Raiders owner Al Davis. Walker played eight games his first season in Oakland before being sidelined by a season-ending ankle injury.

He had knee surgery last offseason out of the country without telling the team and barely played in 2009. He appeared in only three games and caught no passes, fumbling on his only punt return chance.

Walker never cracked the lineup despite Oakland's struggles at receiver. The Raiders' corps of wide receivers combined for 95 catches and seven touchdowns.

EPIC FAIL!!

Derek Anderson says "ruthless" Browns fans "don't deserve a winner"

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...erve-a-winner/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 9, 2010 10:06 PM ET

Former Browns quarterback Derek Anderson, cut on Tuesday by the team, ripped Cleveland fans via an e-mail sent to Jeff Schudel of the News-Herald.

"The fans are ruthless and don't deserve a winner," Anderson said. "I will never forget getting cheered when I was injured. I know at times I wasn't great. I hope and pray I'm playing when my team comes to town and [we] roll them."

Anderson also said that, after the 2009 season ended, he heard from no one with the organization until learning that he had been cut.

The cheering incident to which Anderson refers occurred in November 2008, when fans reacted happily to the fact that Anderson was on the ground, writhing in pain. As it turned out, he had torn a knee ligament.

The team's quarterback quandary traces to the 2007 season. Rookie Brady Quinn held out in a contract dispute, making Anderson the backup to Charlie Frye in Week One. Frye was benched during the 34-7 loss to the Steelers, and he was traded to Seattle a couple of days later. Anderson took the reins.

It was presumed that Anderson was merely holding the spot until Quinn was ready, which of course meant that Anderson experienced no pressure. Which allowed him to hold the ball a little more loosely and play well. Until the playoffs were on the line and the pressure caused him not to play well.

After the season, the Browns badly misread the situation, re-signing Anderson and making him the starter. Inevitably, he held the ball tighter and looked over his shoulder and ultimately was benched. After Quinn was injured, Anderson returned, only to suffer the knee injury that prompted fans to applaud.

So Phil Savage/Romeo Crennel regime made a huge mess in 2008. Finally, someone is trying to clean it up in a decisive way.

This time around, we can't fault Browns fans for cheering.

Gerard Warren is gone

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/blogs/...entry_id=58934

The Raiders released nose tackle Gerard Warren, the first player traded from Denver to Oakland since Willie Brown, according to former Raiders exec Michael Lombardi of the National Football Post.
Warren came to the Raiders just before the 2007 season. His departure, first predicted by ESPN's Adam Schefter, clears the way for yet another young player to get more snaps.
Dez Bryant, and not the stud receiver from Oklahoma State. The Raiders' Desmond Bryant was an undrafted rookie out of Harvard who steadily worked his way into the defensive line rotation.
Bryant had 32 tackles -- within three of Warren, an every-game starter, and a forced fumble. Only two rookie tackles had more stops. Raw out of college, the coaching staff loved his high ceiling. He's already been in Alameda this offseason working with new defensive line coach Mike Waufle.
They still need to add depth to the tackle rotation, with William Joseph a free agent and Warren out. But Bryant is very much in the mix for increased playing time.

Pacman pulls out of workout

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ut-of-workout/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 19, 2010 4:28 PM ET

Free-agent cornerback Pacman Jones had planned to work out for any interested scouts on Friday, upon completion of the Tulane Pro Day.

And in a development that would be surprising only if it came from any other player in the history of organized sports, Pacman didn't show up.

According to James Varney (no, he's not the "Vern" guy) of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Jones didn't show -- and no reason for his absence was given.

Jones' agent supposedly arrived in New Orleans as Tulane players were being put through the paces, with Saints assistant coaches and Texans and Chiefs scouts in attendance.

On Thursday, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reported that Jones would be meeting with the Lions before the workout. So it's possible that the Lions opted to merely sign him to a contract.

That should pretty much be the last chance Pacman has of getting back in the NFL.

Report: Pacman workout proceeding, after all

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...ing-after-all/

Posted by Mike Florio on March 19, 2010 5:12 PM ET

Contrary to a report from the New Orleans Times-Picayune that cornerback Pacman Jones failed to show up for his open workout, Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that the session is occurring.

"He's running the 40 right now and just did an interview with the camera crew we have there," La Canfora said via e-mail.

La Canfora also said that five teams are present.

The problem apparently is that Jim Varney of the Times-Picayune believed that the session would occur at the same place where the Tulane Pro Day occurred. It's actually happening at another location.

Hopefully, Varney will be issuing an apology to Vern.
