Bills cut Ryan Fitzpatrick
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 12, 2013, 4:26 PM EDT

The Ryan Fitzpatrick era is over, and Buffalo needs a new quarterback.

The Bills have announced that they cut Ryan Fitzpatrick today, on the first day of the new league year.

Cutting Fitzpatrick isn’t a big surprise, considering that the Bills owed him a $3 million roster bonus if he was still on the team tomorrow, and that Bills G.M. Buddy Nix was surreptitiously taped talking about, among other things, his frustration that the quarterback was holding the team back.

The six-year, $59 million contract extension Fitzpatrick signed in October of 2011 turned out to be an expensive mistake — and a reminder that sometimes in the NFL, “six-year contracts” last less than a year and a half. If the Bills give this move a post-June 1 designation, Fitpatrick’s cap hit would be $3 million this year and $7 million in 2014.

Now the question is where the Bills will look for their next starting quarterback. This isn’t viewed as a great year to draft one, but the Bills may decide to spend their first-round draft pick on a passer they hope will be their franchise quarterback.

And the question for Fitzpatrick is whether any team wants him. If any team does, it will likely be as a backup — and will definitely be for a lot less money than the Bills paid him.

Mike Wallace agrees to deal, taking physical for Dolphins
Posted by Darin Gantt on March 12, 2013, 4:33 PM EDT

In yet another sign that the most-expected, least-surprising move of the offseason will come to fruition, Mike Wallace is in Miami taking a physical.

While the Steelers wideout has been widely speculated to be headed there for what seems like months, Jeff Darlington of NFL.com reports that he’s taking the physical after agreeing to a contract.

The Dolphins were hell-bent on adding a receiving threat for second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and unless Wallace changes his mind while the doc’s looking at him, they appear to have shaken their reputation for being nothing more than leverage.

Paul Kruger agrees to $40 million deal with Browns
Posted by Darin Gantt on March 12, 2013, 4:51 PM EDT

The Browns put their pile of salary cap room to use quickly Tuesday, signing Ravens outside linebacker Paul Kruger to a five-year deal worth $40 million, according to multiple reports.

The 27-year-old pass-rusher will be the centerpiece of new coordinator Ray Horton’s defense, and has the double benefit of taking away a key player from a division rival.

Kruger had 9.0 sacks in the regular season to lead the Ravens, and adding 4.5 more in the playoffs, setting the stage for his payday.

Broncos beef up offensive line with Louis Vasquez
Posted by Michael David Smith on March 12, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

The Broncos have improved their offensive line by taking a starter from an AFC West rival.

Louis Vasquez, who started all 16 games at guard for the Chargers last season, has signed a four-year, $23.5 million contract with $13 million fully guaranteed, according to Mike Garafolo of USA Today.

Vasquez said just before free agency began that he was planning to explore every option, and his agent noted that the Chargers had been given a chance to extend him but chose not to. Now Vasquez has discovered that the best option for him was in Denver, and the Chargers will have to fave Vasquez twice a year.

The Chargers acquired Vasquez in the third round of the 2009 NFL draft. He started 54 games in four seasons in San Diego.

On our list of the Top 100 NFL free agents, Vaquez was the second-best guard and the No. 50 player overall.

Colts lose out on two really good guards.  I'm hoping they do something to beef things up on the o-line.

You may not need new O-linemen....it may have just been Arians's dumb ass schemes. LOL

They got that Gosder Cherilus guy from the Lions.  He is a foremr first rounder out of Boston College.  He is solid, not great, but he can definitely hold down the RT job and might be able to handle the LT job.

Trust me, they do.  Manning's broken neck is proof of that.

Like RW said, they picked up Gosder Cherilus, who can definitely anchor things down and also signed Donald Thomas from the Pats, who played both center and guard last season for them and did very well, so he's versatile.

Also picked up DB Greg Toler from the Cards.  The head scratcher was Erik Walden from the Packers, who if I remember correctly, was the worse guy on that defense.  Still talk that Cliff Avril may land there too.
