    Polian's ego surrounding his draft prowess wouldn't allow him to take advantage of free agency. Going out and filling a need in free agency would have been an admission that he made a mistake in the draft.

    In general I have no quarrels about Grigson's cap management from a financial perspective. Just not sure about his evaluation of personnel. Particularly linemen.

    Early in Polian's years we spent a little more in FA because we had to. It's the same now, we spend money because we just don't have the players. In a couple years once there are some major paydays (Luck, TY, Castanzo) that won't work, so there will be more emphasis on the draft than maybe as much now. So doesn't really bother me mostly
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    LeSean McCoy and Darren Sproles in the backfield with Jackson and Maclin spread out wide?

    Eagles @ Colts should be a really good game this year. The last time you rolled into Indy was the year we won the Super Bowl. I think Addai exploded in that game. Then you beat us four years ago in Philly with Vick.

    The Panthers hate Cam Newton. That's the only explanation for why they lost all of their wide receivers.

    Cam Newton's WR's have approached the level of McNabb's before TO. James Thrash, Todd Pinkston and Freddie Mitchell. WOOOOOOOOOO

    I'm sure the Baltimore Colts fans felt the same about Marvin wearing it too.

    Heis, is your title from that Hibbert commercial where the kid stands up and says, "my dream is to be a... dragon trainer."

    So hilarious. He says it so serious, as if to say it's going to happen. It's going to happen.

    I doubt Romo and Weeden are too far apart in age. I should hope Werder's tweet was a joke lol.

    Spotrac has Vontae's contract details up. They have it a 4 year, 36 million dollar deal with 20 guaranteed.

    The contract details show once again the Colts are concerned about two years from now. All but 2.5 million of the guaranteed money is in the next two years, and currently the highest cap hit is in year 2 (that will remain unless the Colts convert his roster bonus to a signing bonus next year). 9 of the 20 guaranteed is his base salary for the first two years, 6 is that roster bonus in year two, and only 5 is a signing bonus right now. This IMO is a good structure that allows the Colts to easily get out after year two or three if they need to.

    Colt signed a kicker, Carson Wiggs from Purdue. Hope they keep him on the practice squad and give him a shot to take over for Vinny, kid's got a cannon.

    Good summary of our current off-season acquisitions and losses. I really feel like we trimmed a lot of fat letting a lot of those guys go while also bringing in some quality replacements. Feels like we improved not only our personnel, but also our cap situation going forward.

    Jason Campbell joins the Bengals

    Veteran quarterback Jason Campbell won’t be leaving the state of Ohio for his next NFL gig.

    Adam Schefter of ESPN reports, and PFT has confirmed, that Campbell has agreed to terms with the Bengals. It’s a one-year deal.

    Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the decision came down to Campbell and Ryan Fitzpatrick, who once was a backup in Cincinnati to Carson Palmer. In 2008, Fitzpatrick started 12 games while Palmer was hurt.

    Campbell will provide a veteran presence on the Bengals in a clear backup role, without Campbell threatening to take Andy Dalton’s job. And it will give Andy Dalton the support he needs as he tries to find a way not to just get to the playoffs but to win a playoff game.

    A first-round pick in 2005, Campbell has played for the Redskins, Raiders, Bears, and Browns.

    Cardinals sign Antonio Cromartie


    One of the NFL’s top remaining free agents is heading to Arizona.

    Antonio Cromartie, the veteran cornerback who became a free agent when the Jets released him in a cost-saving move, is signing with the Cardinals. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that it’s a one-year deal.

    Cromartie looks like he could be a great fit in Arizona: With Patrick Peterson as the No. 1 cornerback, opposing quarterbacks will have no choice but to throw in Cromartie’s direction. And with Cromartie’s ball skills, he’ll likely end up with a lot of interceptions. And Cromartie is, from all accounts, a player who has straightened his life out off the field and become a good veteran team leader. That should make him a good influence for young Cardinals cornerback Tyrann Mathieu.

    Last year the Cardinals had an excellent defense on a team that fell just short of making the playoffs. This is the kind of move that could push the Cardinals over the edge, and make them a threat to the Seahawks and 49ers in the NFC West.

    Cotchery to Carolina, Panthers finally find a receiver

    The Carolina Panthers have a new No. 1 receiver.

    Granted, Jerricho Cotchery has been a backup for most of his career and is about to turn 32, but Cotchery will soon be the top receiver on the Panthers’ depth chart. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that the deal is being finalized now.

    Obviously, the Panthers will need to make a few more moves at wide receiver before the season starts. But at the moment, with Steve Smith, Brandon LaFell, Ted Ginn and Domenik Hixon all having left in free agency, Cotchery is by far the best receiver the Panthers have.

    Last year Cotchery played in all 16 games and started six for the Steelers, catching 46 passes for 602 yards and a career-high 10 touchdowns. It was his third season in Pittsburgh; he previously played for the Jets from 2004 to 2010.

    Cotchery was also weighing an offer to return to the Steelers, but instead he’ll call Carolina home this year.

    I'd like to have Mack. But since they threw the transition tag on him, it might just be too financially unwise to bring him. I just think it's going to cost us too much to get him here. I could be wrong.

    Comments had been made about being able to structure a contract that would make it impossible for them to match. I wonder though, would they have to give up draft picks for him besides the financial hit?
