VIRGIL GREEN!!!
Default Schefter, LaConfora and Cole reportings

I saw this on yahoo sports. it is a ticker that is showing minute to minute action going down in the NFL. signings, cuts and rumors.

So far it is looking like Poszluzny is a Jag
Takeo Spikes is in SD
TE Jeff King goes to Arizona
Eagles officially get Noelle Devine
Leinart may be reuniting with Carrol in Seattle

and lots of other news

I don't think they can sign, but you can do everything else, making the signing a formality.

so with that in mind. lets say our front office really wanted Poszluzny. does that mean we could still technically swoop in and offer him more than he got from Jacksonville?

Yes, BM4e....they were talking today about how it is liking giving a letter of intent to go to a college. Nothing is official until signing day, so maybe we can "swoop" in there.

minnesota giving 2012 6th for mcnabb, possibly 2013 6th as well.

@Jayglazer
Vikes agree to trade 6th rounder in 12 and possibly 6th in 13 to Wash for Donovan McNabb. Deal contingent on McNabb agreeing to much less $$

Orton is younger and coming off a solid statistical year. His value is still probably a 3rd rounder.

I see Cole doesn't rate Mebane too highly and has Cullen Jenkins as his best available DT.

McNabb is a old 34/35 but still man for a 6th is still a good deal. My biggest fear is if we couldn't move Orton today means we are asking too much.

Link? I heard they were asking for a 2nd. Doesn't mean they won't come down when no one offers them one. At 8.8 million against the cap and being a malcontent who refuses to back up a better player, the Broncos have to get rid of him one way or another.

Cat and mouse and having options. If there was only one team in the mix it would have got done today. Having multiple suitors allows them to let one of the other teams flinch.

I would guess it's more that many teams are looking at Kolb first. Until that's settled I don't think very many teams will move on their #2 option, Mr. Orton.

I get that Orton has his shortcomings, and some people would rather have someone better, but really? He's a malcontent now? Find me a starting caliber QB (which Orton definitely is) in his prime who is cool with backing up a hot shot rookie. Orton may drop like a sack of potatoes when a DE looks at him funny, but the dude's been nothing but a professional in his time here.
