A "featured back" that never cracked 1000 yds in his career and is only averaging 3.8 yds per carry over the last 3.

Pass.

I'd say DeAngelo Williams is now Panthers vs. Broncos at this moment.


I would be so happy if this happened.

Mike Brown's stubbornness will hurt the team again.

I know he is a man of principle and is sticking to his guns, but Carlson Palmer does the team no good under this scenario.

In the best interest of the team, he should trade him for some high draft picks. Right now, he has value to the team, something Mike Brown needs to take advantage of.

Carson Palmer has given the Bengals a lot of good years....if he wants out, Mike Brown should make it happen (only if he gets fair market value for Palmer).

I know Mike Brown wants to make his point.

Too bad the point being made is that players will not want to play for the Bengals even more after this.

If I'm Carson, I un-retire after the season starts, like two weeks into the season when their roster is set.

Danny O’Neil of the Seattle Times reports that Matt Hasselbeck will not re-sign with the Seahawks.

@dannyoneil
Danny O'Neil It appears the #Seahawks have acquired another quarterback, negating the offer for Hasselbeck to re-sign.

He can't do this, though. Aren't the Bengals the only team he can play for until the length of his contract expires?

Yes, and if he retires his contract goes on hold and resumes as soon as he unretires. As long as he comes back before the reporting date set for that purpose, it counts as a year towards his contract obligation. If he missed the date set, he plays out this year but gets no credit for it or just sits the whole year.

The post above was suggesting that he'd be put back on the team but then they'd have a player that has no value because he hasn't practiced, is only a major distraction, and forces another player (probably not a QB until Palmer is back up to speed on gameplans) to be cut. It's a huge headache for a team once they've already planned for a player to not be there and, as long as he files the paperwork, it's not considered a holdout.

I agree, I would be more excited with a DT than an injury prone RB.

Got it, thanks. I'm paying attention to billion different tabs at once right now.

That sounds like a great plan, though.

I want a DT more then a RB also. Having said that I think Williams would be a nice option to have next to Moreno.

Sounds like McGahee is our backup plan to DeAngelo. Either way we will have upgraded our RB position

The new rules require the teams spend at least 90% of their cap. I fairly certain if they are even at the low end of that number, Carson un-retiring would push them over the top, or at least very close to it.

Boom.

I wonder if Pete Carroll knows WTF he is doing?

That team seems like it has no direction or plan.

If they think he is going to replace Hasselbeck they are crazy. Jackson sucks ass, what the hell is Carroll doing? Poor Seattle, they basically have nothing to cheer for now. Good thing there is a lot of self medicating going on up there.

At one point Josh McDaniels gave us insta-results for about half a year.

Let's not pretend like Seattle was 12-4 last year.

They were 7-9 and won a playoff game.

Cowboys cost for Roy Williams in 2008: 1st, 3rd, 6th round picks and $20 million guaranteed. Now he's released: Treasure to Trash.

Needing arms for start of camp, Seahawks signed two undrafted free agent QBs, Nebraska's Zach Lee and California (PA.'s) Josh Portis.
