he's on his last leg but playing against the Steelers might motivate him just enough to hold off the decline and help the Bengals win some big games.

Trent Cole - LB - Eagles

Eagles OLB Trent Cole's February hand surgery was performed to address multiple tendon tears and a snapped bone near his right wrist.
Cole says he played with the injury in 2011, but in 2012 "finally it snapped in half and I had to get some surgery." Cole turned in the worst year of his career last season, which -- in hindsight -- isn't surprising because pass rushers rely so much on hand usage. "Iíll straight up tell you I had a bad year," said 30-year-old Cole. "And itís not going to happen again."

damn a look, he'd beat out anyone on the roster and probably 90% of the rookie MLB class.

MLB or LB period? if just LB then Jordan,Ansah(if he goes to a 3-4 team) and Mingo.
if just MLB then the only likely candidate would be Te'o but only if he can provide INT's and not got exposed on the edges.
Brown is more overrated than Te'o, Minter is more of a bruising thumper.

Obviously ILBs.. There is no way a rookie plays on Dansby's level over a two year span. Dansby has been a forgotten stud ILB in the NFL.. Just does everything right. Darryl Washington reminds me of a Dansby, in that he's very well rounded and talented. Washington is an under the radar up and coming star, where Dansby is an under the radar star already..

He must want big money.. After all he thinks he's the best ILB in football.

You've got me.. That $1.2 for Bradley would have all went to Dansby and then some..there's cap room for him. He's not going to get more than $5 a season on the open market..

I think they are both incredibly talented. Darryl is a younger more athletic version. I would sign Dansby and fill that hole with a leader who wants a ring.. If not Baltimore may sign him..

i wonder if they're eying someone in the draft on the cheap and holding money for Freeney when he finally gives in and says yes.
i know part of the money goes to the draft but you can back load a deal to land Dansby and fill the hole and not have to take a MLB except as a pure value selection.

Dansby seems like a perfect fit for the win now Broncos. He would solve a big missing piece.

This story is great for a couple of reasons....

1) Although drafted as a Chief...he wanted nothing to do with that pathetic franchise and retired as a Saint.

2) Loved the comment by someone that commented that Scott was able to get his contract signed and faxed in from Machu Picchu....while Doom couldn't manage it from Kinkos in Miami.


http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/92...ntains-retires

Scott Fujita retires as a Saint

Linebacker Scott Fujita signed a one-day contract with the New Orleans Saints on Monday and then announced his retirement after 11 seasons in the NFL.

Fujita signed his contract in Machu Picchu, which is located in the Andes Mountains in Peru. He's there with former Saints teammate Steve Gleason, who is battling Lou Gehrig's Disease.

In a statement from the team, Fujita said he couldn't think of a better place to be to announce his retirement.

"What better place to reach the end of the road than here at 10,000 feet above sea level, in the Peruvian Andes overlooking Machu Picchu with my dear friend Steve Gleason?"

Fujita was one of four players suspended by the NFL in its investigation of the Saints' bounty program but fought to clear his name of the three-game ban. Commissioner Roger Goodell later reduced Fujita's suspension to one game before the suspensions of all players implicated were later vacated by former commissioner Paul Tagliabue.

The 33-year-old Fujita, who played for the Cleveland Browns the past three seasons, helped the Saints win a Super Bowl during his time with the team (2006-09).

Fujita was credited with four tackles in the Saints' 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and Dallas Cowboys.

He has 767 tackles, 23.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and seven interceptions in 143 career games.

"I've been fortunate to play in this league for a long time and for some great organizations, but there is no doubt that my times spent in New Orleans were some of the best years of my life," Fujita said in the statement.

"The way the team and the community embraced us when we first arrived, and the way they continue to do so, even today, shows how deep this connection is. I'm honored to be a part of this organization and so proud to retire as a New Orleans Saint."

General manager Mickey Loomis and coach Sean Payton pointed out in the team's statement that Fujita was the first player the team signed in free agency after Payton became the team's coach in 2006.

"It was an important acquisition for us, getting a player of his caliber to come to New Orleans despite the conditions [post-Hurricane Katrina] for a number of reasons because he saw an opportunity to become involved in the rebuilding of the city, yet quickly realized how important the team was to that effort," Loomis said.

Payton called Fujita "a cornerstone of the foundation that we've built and we won a World Championship together.

"It's been said that when you win a championship together, you walk together for the rest of your lives and that's certainly appropriate to celebrate on a day like today."

I think Freeny is the target of those 2. I saw something in the post today that said they could bring Brooking back if they don't draft a LB but wasn't sure if it was just speculation or not.
