Not true.

Two years ago everyone had the Eagles winning the Super Bowl after the free agent period. GB was kind of an afterthought, even after winning the SB.

I suppose in the beginning of the season that would be true, but not after about 3 weeks. It was all Packer bandwagon from there on according to just about every analyst.

Yeah, I thought you were referring to the 2011 off-season. My bad.

Jake Long agrees to terms with Rams
Posted by Mike Florio on March 18, 2013, 12:20 AM EDT

The first overall pick in the 2008 draft has decided where he’ll be playing for the next four years.  And it won’t be in the city where he has spent the last five.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, tackle Jake Long has agreed to terms with the Rams.

Long picked the Rams over the Dolphins, who made a late push to keep Long after his multi-day visit to St. Louis ended.

It’s a four-year deal, with a base value of $34 million, for an average of $8.5 million annually.  With incentives, the deal can reach $36 million.

The deal has $16 million fully guaranteed, with another $4 million that will become fully guaranteed in 2014.

It’s unclear whether the Dolphins were offering the same, less, or more.  In the end, it doesn’t matter.  Long, who has made plenty from being a No. 1 overall pick in the days before the rookie wage scale, doesn’t have to take the best offer on the table.

Giants signed the TE from Oakland, Brandon Myers. Very good signing, this guy was overlooked on a shitty team last year.

The Bears have parted ways with Brian Urlacher. Urlacher is whining to anyone that will listen. Fact is Urlacher can't run anymore. He should retire.

Too many knee surgeries.

Robert Klemko and Mike Garafolo, USA TODAY Sports9:14p.m. EDT March 20, 2013

Ed Reed snagged his final interception as a member of the Baltimore Ravens in the game that mattered most. Now he's leaving for another AFC power.

The 34-year-old free safety, who started all 20 games in last season's successful Super Bowl run, has agreed to join the Houston Texans, according to a person informed of the progress of negotiations.

The person, who spoke to USA TODAY Sports on condition of anonymity because the contract isn't yet signed, did not provide terms.
Drafted 24th overall in 2002, Reed earned nine Pro Bowl nods with the Ravens, but the 2004 defensive player of the year will now fill a need for the two-time AFC South champions. Reed earned his first Super Bowl ring — picking off San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the 34-31 Super Bowl XLVII triumph in New Orleans — in his 11th and final season with the Ravens, who have experienced an exodus of experience and talent since free agency began.

Gone are retirees Ray Lewis and Matt Birk, free agent linebackers Paul Kruger and Dannell Ellerbe, cornerback Cary Williams wide receiver Anquan Boldin (traded to the 49ers), and now Reed, who said he played through a torn labrum in his shoulder for much of the 2012 regular season.

His departure does not come as a shock to teammates who got a crash course in the business side of the NFL over the last month.

"It's not surprising," Baltimore linebacker Albert McClellan told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday evening. "At the end of the day, he's got to look out for himself and do whatever he can to help out his family. I'm pretty sure he wants to play, but he doesn't want to play for something that he's not worth. Nobody wants to play for less than they're worth."

Reed intended to rejoin the Ravens for the right price.

"I am a Raven, plan on being a Raven," he told NFL Network in early March. "I couldn't see myself anywhere else, but if it happens, I am a football player, I can adapt to any situation."

His health and play in apparent decline, Reed admitted before the 2012 regular-season finale that he had lost a step. He became expendable in Baltimore but essential to a Texans defense which ranked seventh in the NFL last season in yards allowed.

The Ravens may look to fill Reed's spot with free agent Michael Huff, a former first-round pick who has played safety and cornerback for the Oakland Raiders. Huff will visit with the team in the coming week, according to ESPN. But Ravens players insist Reed won't easily be replaced.

"Ed Reed is one of the greatest safeties to ever play this game," Ravens linebacker Jameel McClain told USA TODAY Sports. "That's not something that can ever be replaced. Ed is one of the most honest people I've encountered, from a place that you know is completely from his heart. He was a big mentor to me, and beyond that he's been entrenched in the community in Baltimore."

In need of a safety with the departure of free agent Glover Quin to the Detroit Lions, Houston rolled out the red carpet for Reed last week with the team tweeting that general manager Rick Smith would pick up Reed for his Houston visit in Texans chairman and CEO Bob McNair's private jet. But Reed waited a week to commit to the Texans after his much-publicized visit.

Losing Reed leaves Baltimore without the two safeties who started much of last season. Bernard Pollard was released earlier this month. Journeyman backup safety James Ihedigbo, however, was re-signed.

Bears find Urlacher replacement in D.J. Williams
Posted by Darin Gantt on March 22, 2013, 2:09 PM EDT

The Bears have moved quickly to find a potential replacement for Brian Urlacher.

According to Dan Pompei of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears have agreed to a one-year deal with former Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams.

The Broncos parted ways with Williams after a troubled season which featured a pair of suspensions, but the 30-year-old was still playing at a solid level before the trouble.

The former first-rounder could earn up to $1.75 million if he hits a number of playing time incentives and workout bonuses, but there is no guaranteed money in the deal.

That’s less than the deal Urlacher refused, creating the awkward divorce.

The Bears still need a long-term answer in the middle, but they’re no longer desperate.
