My question is injuries. What if Fisher has injury problems that really limit his playing time? KC is out $10m regardless and another $4m in February. Whoever Fisher's agent is, he should get a bonus for raping KC.

Generally, yes. They didn't get all of what they wanted, but this was the trade off - a huge check up front. These little nuances are the new things the agents are doing to recoup some of that money. This is why despite the salary slotting that rookie contracts still get hung up in the preseason.

I don't think he will but I didn't think Gallery would either. OL is as safe as it gets when dealing with NFL college to pro success.

Don't have to worry about Dennis Pitta again. Well not until the playoffs.

I would bet a large sum of money the Ravens miss the playoffs.

Titans brawl with each other. Seems every year there's a team that ends up beating each other up a couple days into camp.

watch, some fan will swear it's Kelly's fault for running such a fast paced offense.

Last chance for Iggles fans to relive the glory of days gone by and boo McNabb one last time.

Coaches in college are already trying to ban the no huddle offense because og player safety.

it's got nothing to do with player safety. they just don't like the speed and not being able to play chess on D. it's a match up nightmare for D coordinators.

I know...but they are selling it to the NCAA as a safety hazard.
