The Eagles will NOT cut Michael Vick this week. Since he will be on the roster past Jan 6th, $3 Million of Vick's salary becomes guaranteed in 2013. Apparently Vick came away impressed in meetings with Chip Kelly.

Ravens sign RB Lonyae Miller and C Reggie Stephens to reserve/future contracts (not that it means much).

Who knows. I figured Dixon would go there due to the connection.

If Cheap enough, he would be a great locker room presence on a lot of teams. Wish the best for him.

Two Potential Left Tackle possibilities:

The Cowboys may release RT Doug Free with a $7 Million salary due in 2013, it is likely.

Also the Saints may let Jermon Bushrod walk in Free Agency.

I think this will be the biggest free agency in history in terms of quality players cut. This sounds like an Ozzie free agency to me. Clean up on quality leftovers.

I don't like Free as a starter, I would rather have Oher and KO at OT.

I heard the Saints plan on low balling Bushrod. It said they value Guards over tackles for some reason.

Bushrod wouldn't be too bad of a band aid for the Left Tackle position. I mean he has done a good job in New Orleans protecting Brees so adding him would seem to be a Ozzie type of move.

Pocket for Brees to step up in to, I think.

Their low ball offer is probably closer to what Bushrod's worth than what he'll end up getting. He's below-average.

Any info on what the Giants are doing with Will Beatty. Guy was a beast LT for them this year. If they don't franchise him we could grab him while teams focus on Ryan Long and Clady looking for 10 mil a year deals.

It's the way he drops back. Tackles on that team are pretty much guards. They just can't be overpowered directly. Brees drops back 10 feet and the rusher do Suggs main move and try to move around the tackles in which case he simply steps up in the pocket and they are all the way in the back. Good strategy.

may want to edit this because excise would mean that they were cutting him while exERcise means they will keep him
