Bengals sign former Buccaneers center Jeff Faine

Faine is a 10-year veteran who has 117 career starts, including stints with the Cleveland Browns, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay

Is he any good? If so wonder if the Broncos even looked his way

As for Cooley, he may or may not be past his prime or even any good...but if he can't play for the Redskins who finished 5-11 and in last place in their division, then what makes you think he can play here?

Its a question of what you believe... Is he injured? If yes, then pass... But if the reports are true that he wanted a starting role, and he really is healthy, I see no reason why he cant compete with Tamme

Exactly...regardless of how you feel about the coach, FO, certain players, etc....I cannot fathom anyone hoping we'd lose a game. Now they might predict we'll lose one...but surely never hope to lose one.

You don't think that Manning went through waivers do you?
Orton has spent more than 4 years in NFL, and was waived this past season....and he was claimed by KC....or is your post about just during the offseason?

Ok on edit I found this...

As of 2008, according to the NFL collective bargaining agreement, if any waiver of a veteran player who has completed the season that gives him four years of service occurs between February 1 and the trading deadline in mid October, then that player shall be considered an unrestricted free agent by termination of his contract.

This must mean that if you're released between the trading deadline in mid October and February 1st, then you must clear waivers...

Yes. Because they don't want any shenanigans during the season where poor teams dump players at the end of the year and the playoff teams put together dream teams for their playoff runs.

The NFL has suspended Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt for one game, the Tennessean reported Thursday.

Kenny Britt has been in trouble so many times. How in the hell did he just get 1 game?

I wonder what he'll get if convicted on that DUI

Ok I can understand not wanting to pay your brother in the playoffs but is playing against him in the super bowl any better?

I bet the cards FO is feeling real good about paying Kolb a lot of money to warm the bench...

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew has ended his 38-day holdout -- without a new contract.

Not really, by you'd have to be a moron to not want a top 5 RB added to the roster



Oh wait, let's add some TEs who just got cut instead

ProFootballTalk just tweeted Ryan Harris was signed today by the Texans to their active roster. Kubiak sure loves his ex-Bronco has beens. I wonder if they regret parting ways with Eric Winston?

This is counter productive IMO. Once again this is a passing league and while he would give us the ability to run so does mc gahee, and our other RBs.
Read this the other day and it made more sense than anything else comparison of number of carries between him and TD.

Quote:
So you're looking at around $20M or more in guarantees, plus a high draft choice, all for a 27-year-old back with 1,762 touches on his tires. If you're wondering, Terrell Davis logged 1,824 touches in his entire career.
Not even mention what JAC would get in return.. Way to much to pay for a guy that has that many miles on his legs and knees..

But then if your a democratic spending someone elses money comes easy for y'all.
