one year deal.

Great. The Niners have a QB that throws low,high, and too far.Now they have a WR that makes no effort to catch them.

Can't exactly say why, but I see this an an upgrade for the 49ers.  This has every potential to end well.

If Moss plays 16 games (as a starter), I wouldn't be surprised by 750 yds and 6-8 TDs. 49ers passing offense will be way ahead of where they were last year.

Per Jay Glazer, the Dolphins have traded WR Brandon Marshall to the Bears for a 2012 3rd and 2013 3rd round pick.

This reunites Marshall with Jay Cutler.   Word is they believe Vincent Jackson with sign with the Bucs.

And Peyton Manning was rumored to have reservations about playing with Marshall.  This frees up the potential of Reggie Wayne coming in.

The Niners got 3 (THREE) yards from their WR's in the NFC title game. They could sign me and TBolt and get the same production.

The Petulant Pair is back in action. LOL

Only news I cared about today: Colston signed with the Saints! First good news in a spell!

Blame the dumbass QB not the recievers.

Smith has a noodle arm. Moss's speed will mean nothing.
I pray so hard at nite that Smith doesn't re-sign my hair is falling out. Let Tolzien or Kapernick take the snaps.

We dont know until Manning signs w/whoever. Even if he(Manning) doesnt sign w/the Skins, still a great move and MAJOR upgrade for them than what they have currently. Regardless of whether Manning goes there, or they draft RG3, they need WR's and this helps alot. They're also rumored to be interested in Eddie Royal.

IMO, the right move. Manning is too much of a costly gamble for anyone to make, especially a good young team like the Texans.

Reggie Wayne resigns with the Colts for 3 yrs per ESPN.

Giants resign T2, which means Aaron Ross is a goner.  Also, Diehl and Baas restructured their contracts and it looks like they may be signing Martellus Bennett.

Surprised about Wayne.  Many thought Wayne and Manning were going to be a package deal.

There you go....didnt see that. BUT, if the Skins do sign manning, theyve now got a pretty good stable of WR's, and if they sign Royal, they have 3 pretty good WR's for him to throw to(and RG# of course)

Yeah, but for WAY too much $$$
The way the contract was structured is it essentially is a three year deal, 19 mil guaranteed.  You want to talk too much $$$ come holler at me when Calvin Johnson gets his new deal.  Don't get me wrong, Megatron is a mo fuckin beast, but no receiver is worth the figures his agent has been tossing around.

I don't like the Skins WR moves. Garcon was a Manning product and totally overrated. I do like Josh Morgan, but Shanny will find a way for that to be an unsuccessful venture. I don't like RG3, but KK can label me an idiot and we'll see in 5 years.

Finnegan is an enigma. He can't cover anybody top-notch but he's a "tough guy" (read, douchebag who plays dirty). He lives off his (former and future) scumbag coaches rep and that's fine. I now look forward to rooting against the Fisher-led Rams because I despise that system. BenLen-I can bought as an honorary Niner Fan this year.:)

Love Chicago's move. I'm a big Marshall fan. He'll do great things there. He's such a better receiver than half the pussies in GB, like Jennings and the most overrated TE-Finley. Now Chicago needs an OL.

With the salary cap space the league took from them there is no way they can afford Manning and Griffin.

If the Skins sign Peyton after trading away a billion picks for RG3 then they are stupider than everyone says they are.

Also NFL contracts are about as binding as NCAA football coaching contracts. Yeah, we'll sign a guy for $55 million for 5 years, but when we realize we completely fucked ourselves over with the cap either you ask him to restructure his deal or release him for making too much money.

Agreed. I always think of the guy from the Bills that signed with the 49ers for a ton of money that sucked when I think of CB's in FA. Finnegan is just a douche.

NY Giants are looking to bring in Marcellus Bennett of Dallas for TE and I'd reckon they'll bring back Steve Smith to play his old slot position instead of Manningham. That's likely an upgrade to the offense.

Yep, Garcon was the best receiver the Colts had this past year.  I hate to see him go because he made some spectacular plays.  But he also had some inconsistent hands and drops.

I don't know why in the world Stingmark keeps talking about Peyton to the Redskins.  He isn't going there.  He has already said that he has no interest in that team.  They aren't even on his radar.

Wayne re-signing with the Colts is good news for us Colts fans.  Hopefully, he'll be a good veteran WR for Luck to work with.  I just hope they upgrade that position in the draft as well, because Blair White is too small and Collie is so injury prone.

Meachem signs with the Chargers for a hell of a lot less than Jackson got with the Bucs.  He's also younger.  Could be a good deal for them.

And Niners are looking to add another deep threat by interviewing Brandon Lloyd.

I think Peyton to Denver is almost a lock. Arizona owes Kolb a $7 Million Roster Bonus if He's still on the Team on Saturday and Peyton really isn't in a rush to make a decision. Crazy thought, what about Peyton to Chicago? Great Defense, just traded for Marshall and it's very close to Indy. I don't know the Cap situation with Culter and the Bears, but could it happen?

Nah, no interest from the Bears.  They like Cutler a lot, and that's a big reason why they brought Marshall in as he was Cutler's go to in Denver.

It's been said that if Peyton didn't take the Miami spot, that they'd shoot for Matt Flynn.  But he's not scheduled to meet with them, instead opting to meet with Seattle.

Meanwhile, Calvin Johnson just reached an extension with the Lions for 7 years, worth $132M.  $60M of which is guaranteed.  It's the single richest contract in NFL history.

Carl Nicks and Eric Wright to Tampa.  Say what you want, but with them signing V Jax and now these two coupled with Richardson and I see Tampa being a much improved team.  I hate to see Nicks go. It seems the Saints wanted to keep him but such is life in the NFL.  They say the Saints wanted to keep both their Pro Bowl Guards but if they could only keep one it would be Evans.  They say Nicks has more of a diva attitude and that they are worried about his ability to control his weight.  They don't have those issues with Evans.   Still, he formed one hell of a tandem with Evans. 

http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2012/football/nfl/03/14/san.diego.chargers.robert.meachem.ap/index.html?sct=nfl_t2_a13

Robert Meachem signs with the Chargers.  I hate to see him leave but he and Devery Henderson are pretty much interchangeable.  I think he has the talent to be a good number one option plus he feels a need  for the Chargers. 

http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2012/03/14/SPHV1NKC6F.DTL

The Niners resigned Carlos Rogers.  Rogers finally looks like the first round pick he was.  That Niners D is pretty stout.

Because they kept talking about it on the radio & it seemed like a good fit for the Manning/Wayne combo. Unless he signs elsewhere, all the teams are still pretty much in play.

Sure, and Sting's still in play to go to WWE.

He's not going to the Redskins.  He's said he's not.  They traded up for RGIII because they know that.

If your logic works in your mind for the whole Sting thing, why can't you wrap your head around this?

He's not going to the Redskins.  He's said he's not.  They traded up for RGIII because they know that.

If your logic works in your mind for the whole Sting thing, why can't you wrap your head around this?


And Warriors still in good w/ Vince & will be in the WWEHOF soon.

In my mind(&Stings) he didnt sign w/ the WWE. Those were rumors(kinda like now w/Manning).

Lol, getting pissed @ me b/c they kept talking about Manning going to a bunch of different places on the radio & I just passed it on here, makes me legit lol.

Thanks for overreacting again, you should call the radio station who talked about it(& ESPN who talked about it) & bitch to them.

Lol, thats classic.

That's a lot of coin but you knew the Cowboys were gonna shore up their secondary via Free Agency when they cut Terrance Newman yesterday. CBS Sports had Carr listed as the 3rd best Free Agent available after Manning and Mario Williams. I wonder if this will change the Cowboys plan of taking CB Dre Kirkpatrick at # 14 in the upcoming draft.

:shock: I don't get this at all as I thought Stephen McGee was now ready to become the backup in Dallas. But I guess Jerry Jones felt that they needed a veteran guy to be the # 2 QB. CBS Sports had Orton rated at the 69th best Free Agent available and I think that's appropriate since I feel that this signing really sucks.

EDIT: Jesus H. Christ - I just read that Orton was signed to a 3 year deal !!!!!!!  One year was bad enough but now we got him for 3 years. :X

meh, Orton is serviceable as a back-up. I thought they did ok on that deal.

You want to talk bad deals? THIS is a bad deal:

The Jaguars and Laurent Robinson agreed to a five-year, $32.5 million contract Wednesday evening, giving the team a much-needed splash in free agency. The deal includes $14 million guaranteed.

The Cowboys picked up Robinson of the Chargers scrap heap last year because they needed a third receiver. He put up decent numbers because most defenses the Boys played were keying on Dez, Austin, and Witten. He certainly isn't worth #1 reciever money. Jacksonville gave him more guaranteed money than Philly gave Jackson.

Orton is a very good backup QB. Anybody who saw last year how in-demand he was should see that.
Robinson could be a disaster because Gabbert is terrible. However, I just read that the Jags signed Henne. He'll win the job outright.

Can't argue with that logic. :shock:


Where are you hearing this? Washington mortgaged heir future to move up to draft a QB.

Peyton said he would not consider Washington or any other team in his brother's division.

Peyton's top four teams are Tennessee, Denver, Arizona, and Miami (in that order). I haven't even heard Washington mentioned in weeks.

Alvin Harper II. This guy is a total enigma, which makes me wonder why people get on Brandon Marshall so harshly when he is almost the same exact guy. And I don't think he's nearly as talented as Marshall. Just my opinion.......


Except Jackson doesn't punch women in the face when he goes to the bar.

Replacing Pro Bowler Nicks with Pro Bowler Grubbs certainly helps ease the sting of losing Carl!  The Saints saved quite a bit by going this route and won't miss a step with Grubbs in Carl's spot.

Bills sign Mario Williams. Have a press conference at 1:30 to announce it. Can't wait to see how much they overpaid to get him.

I'm sure they did overpay for him. The Bills are in the position where they HAVE to overpay to get someone like Williams to come to Buffalo. The only way to change the culture is to get high profile big names to sign there and hope others (Supposedly want Manningham) will follow suit and make them relevant again.

Six year deal, numbers aren't out yet, but Jay Glazer is reporting that $50M of that is guaranteed.

Still, if he can stay healthy...that'll be a huge boost to that defense.

from ESPN

 

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Free agent pass rusher Mario Williams has agreed to a six-year deal with the Buffalo Bills worth up to $100 million, with $50 million guaranteed, his agent, Ben Droga told The Associated Press.

The $50 million guarantee is the richest for a defensive player in NFL history.

The Bills have called a 1:45 p.m. ET news conference to introduce the newest member of their defense, who joins a fearsome defensive line that also includes 2011 first-round pick Marcell Dareus and Pro Bowler Kyle Williams.

Bills players took to Twitter to welcome Mario Williams to the team and celebrate the big addition.

Linebacker Nick Barnett wrote: "Welcome Mario!!! Bills d is not playing games homie!!!"

Receiver Stevie Johnson, who signed an extension earlier this offseason to stay in Buffalo, also hailed the move.

"I Love it! S/O to Them Buffalo Guys wearing The Suits for Making Things Happen this OffSeason! Let's Continue to Build! Welcome #SuperMario!," he wrote.

The Bills flew Williams into town by private jet from his home in North Carolina shortly after the free-agency period opened at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday. Williams had informed the Bills on Tuesday night that he planned to visit other teams, two sources told ESPN.com's John Clayton.

After quarterback Peyton Manning, Mario Williams is regarded as one of the top free agents available. And that means the Bills would have to pay a hefty price if they intend to land the player selected first overall in the 2006 draft by Houston.

The Bills have identified improving their pass rush as a top offseason priority after managing just 29 sacks -- including 10 in one game -- last season.

Listed at 6-foot-6 and 285 pounds, Mario Williams is a two-time Pro Bowl starter, who had a Texans' franchise-best 53 career sacks, including a team single-season best 14 in 2007. Williams was limited to playing just five games last season as a result of a torn chest muscle. He also missed three games in 2010 after having surgery to repair a sports hernia.

The Bills are coming off a 6-10 season, and have missed the playoffs for 12 straight years -- the NFL's longest active drought.

Dallas signed safety Brodney Pool to a 1-year deal. By adding Pool and Carr in the last 24 hours I have to think that now the Cowboys might not be targeting CB Dre Kirkpatrick at # 14 in the upcoming NFL Draft.

Blah blah blah, the best part of all of this? Is that you got upset over a fucking rumor....a rumor they were talking about on the radio, that I relayed here, yet you question my intelligence, lol. This is funnier than that time you claimed Warrior was Vince's BFF & that he was going into the hof, remember that? I do, god that was funny.

But whatever you say anus, youve won.

Anus.

Twice.

Your material is as fresh as your ability to think past 1, 2, cat, chair.

That's it! I'm going  sit and sulk and be "upset over a rumor".

That's how dumb you are.  Really.  You honestly believe that I'm mad.  Second you think I'm upset over a rumor.

Dude, at this point...I just like baiting you because you're so stupid, I can just sit here and chuckle at the nonsense you reply with.  Because you never.....Eeeeeeeverrr get it.  Ever. 

And when anyone tries to point out to you that you're misinformed, you're response is "Don't be mad, Anus!"

Just so you can have a little more rocks to rattle around in that Stewie sized head of yours...all I was saying is that the rumor that you kept perpetrating, had been debunked for several days as you kept on keeping on...

Psst... (don't get lost on the big words, I'll link you to http://www.dictionary.com as a bonus gift).

Lol, blah blah blah....you keep talking about it. You cant(nor wont) let it go can you? Even after I said youve won your little pissing contest, congrats by the way. Just dont feel like arguing w/ you about something as dumb as a rumor given on a radio station.

Yet, you keep claiming youre not mad about it & as usual, the insults fly, bc you obviously can't have a conversation with anyone, w/o insults. You're just pathetic now.

(For the last time), I'm done, moving on from this topic, can you do the same? Doubtful. I'll make it even easier for you: I'll just.move on & you can go on talking to yourself & hopefully then you'll get the hint that youre the only onw who gives four fucks about this? Unless you enjoy conversation w/ yourself, which I honestly think you do.

So.much for you being "done"arguing.......your email you sent me is meaningless& laughable(which I expected it to be). I can only imagine what you put your poor wife & kids through on a daily basis. They probaby think you're an insufferable douchebag, (like most people do). Oh wait, you dont care about that, but then will post 4/5 pages of insults/ rebuttal's claiming otherwise. I can see why you've been divorced. I'm sure if we asked your ex, she'd say that was the best part of your marriage, the divorce part, Probably will be again, not surprising.

Maybe the Bengals because they were two first round picks and would have to give up one to get him because of the tender tag he has on him.

The only team with the need for a WR and enough cap room to make a play for Wallace would be the Bengals, and we all know they do everything they possibly can to never spend any money they aren't forced to kicking and screaming.

Steelers should be able to keep him for at least one year, might be hard to franchise him in 2013 since the average of the top 5 salaries for WRs will be pretty wildly inflated due to the spending orgy this FA period. The Steelers will be shedding a lot of of dead cap money going into that year, so perhaps they'll be able to use the tag.

From what I've heard, their plan is to restructure all their top guys as much as possible until 2014 when the cap is expected to jump pretty big due to the new bazillion dollar TV deal kicking in at that point.

Not being confrontational, but he's a FA, so there's no trade that would be involved.

And several outlets are reporting that he met with the Dolphins and they are negotiating...

Even with the Williams signing, pretty sure the Bills have the cap room and need at WR. Haven't heard a mention of Wallace for them however.

Don't forget Stevie Johnson just signed a hefty extension as well and that may factor in to it.

The Niners offered smith three yrs 24 mil last month. He wanted five yrs 50 milwith more guareentee money. Smith can go to Miami and lose his job to Matt Moore.

I don't believe it was.  The offer was there and supposedly, he wanted 5 years.  But, he was quoted as saying he was happy with the deal they offered.

But then, the Manning news broke...

The Niners offered smith three yrs 24 mil last month. He wanted five yrs 50 milwith more guareentee money. Smith can go to Miami and lose his job to Matt Moore.

Wait so the Niners offered him money and he declined so then they went after Peyton Manning is that how it went
Yes. The offer was there and he turned it down. Niners don't want to give him more than 3 yrs. That idiot balked at the offer. Niners then made an offer to Manning.

Aaron Ross to the Jags ($15mmm over 3 years): http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/03/20/jaguars-sign-ex-giants-cornerback-aaron-ross-to-three-year-deal/

Thanks for the contributions to two title winners Aaron. We appreciate it.
He is one of the best TACKLING CB's in the league, and one of , if not the worst, COVER CB's. Always seemed to be the weak link last year. And he absolutely cannot return punts-Phil McConkey was more elusive.
That said, he helped us win two titles and I wish him the best. We'll be better next year if Terrell Thomas is healthy.

Hines Ward announced his retirement, probably since he didn't get any interest despite most of the league throwing money around like a drunk sailor at anyone who can catch a ball.

Hilarious to see all the comments on Facebook acting like Ward did some sort of favor to Pittsburgh by not signing with another team, when it most likely wasn't his choice.

Ward is done and he knows it. He's an all-time great and fave to Steeler fans and a total scumbag to Ravens. The rest of us, we're indifferent. He was a heck of an athlete at UGA though.

good, he still sucks and Benlen is correct, he'll lose his job to Matt Moore or the Fish go down in flames until they realize he's not a starting QB. He had an ok season last year after being a complete bust before that. Niners in a tough spot now though because who else is available for them to go after instead of Smith?

The "idiot balked at the offer" b/c he was led to believe he would be the starter there for years, then they go and start talking to Manning, why wouldnt the guy get mad and turn down their offer? I'd do the same thing if I were Smith, and you would too.

I just hope Smith bolts and leaves the 49ers to go to get Jamarcus Russell, Vince Young, or some crap like that. I hate those bastards.

Smith overvalues himself. He's not that good. If he doesn't sign with the niners where's he gonna play?

Smith ain't shit. The guy is a mediocre backup at best. Even his "great" season this year wasn't anything outstanding. He needs to take any offer he gets. They have tried to replace him SEVERAL times, and not a damn one of them could hold Manning's jock strap.

QB Josh Johnson visiting Niners.
Niners offer still on table of 3 yrs 24 mil to Smith but he's acting like a crybaby.

I hope the Niners realize they caught lightning in a bottle with Smith as their QB last year. He'll likely return to form this yar. Hell, he returned to form in the NFC Championship game.

If other teams are able to figure out the Niners system and the Niners are stuck having to call plays designed for Smith to make a "big" play to compensate, they'll be lucky to finish at 8-8 next year.

They need to get that offer off the table and tell Smith to look elsewhere ASAP, otherwise it's back to mediocrity.

Smith finally signs for the 24 mil with 16 mil in incentives. Signing Moss and Manningham is a waste now. He locks on to Davis and ignores the others.
fuck.

Benlen, I'm curious to your thoughts on this...My buddy who is also from SF posted this on FB about Smith -

The Alex Smith pile on from every possible media outlet is silly. He's every bit as good as guys like Cassel, Fitzpatrick, Freeman, Hasselbeck, and other third tier QBs. And much, much better than Sanchez. They had a brand new offense last year and it took 4-5 weeks and a Chilo Rachal benching before the offensive line got going (and they were still blown up by Baltimore later in the year). And as much as they are billed as a running team, they weren't very effective - the 4.1 ypc ranked in the bottom half of the league. The receiving corps looked okay before injuries wiped out Morgan and Edwards, which left Crabtree (who was playing hurt) as the only legitimate option for most of the year other than Davis. The play calling in the redzone was EXTREMELY conservative any time the 49ers had a lead or the game was close.

And yet! Yet, he still did this:

2011: 90.7 rating, 61.3% for 3144 yards, 17/5 TD/Int + 2 TDs rush
Playoffs (2 games): 101.0 rating, 53% for 495 yards, 5/0 TD/Int + 1 TD rush


Better get your jabs in before he's Super Bowl MVP. The 49ers offense will be far better in 2012. The line, running backs, and receivers were all trying to learn the offense during the season and they should be improved across the board.

2012 prediction: 63% for 3700 yards, 25/10 TD/Int which should be good for a rating in the low to mid 90s.

Bunkley to the Saints, 9M guaranteed.  He is a good run stuffer which the Saints need.  I like this as I feel he will be a boon to the DT rotation with Ellis and Tom Johnson(this kid looked good in his limited chances last year and think he could be a beast).

He amassed those fantastic mediocre numbers playing a strength of schedule ranked 30th. Those yardage numbers and tds were near the bottom of the league among all startering QBs. Harbaugh was smart to limit the pass attempts. Gore had no chance. Defenses played the run first cramming the line. Redzone offense was non existent. Get to the 30 yard line , run the ball three times and set up Akers for a FG.

He had decent numbers and had his 4 minutes of fame vs the Saints. They were also (I believe 29th or 30th) piss poor against the pass. Smith rode the coat tails of the defense and special teams. Next year he's matched up Brady, Brees,Rodgers,Bradford and Eli. Niners won't win a shootout against those QB's.

The only thing I agree with your friend is his interception's will go up.SuperBowl MVP? What a joke. Niners fans are fucked for another 3 years.

What I meant was more geared towards what I saw, which was Smith fucking up a lot of simple passing plays the same way he did in the years previous to last season. Never mind the numbers, the old Alex Smith came calling in that Championship game.

Really? He played like shit the second half. They weren't moving the ball at all. He reverted back to his three plays and out mode. Only way the niners win that game is if they win the field position battle and kick a fg.

This is true. McFadden is fantastic when he plays but he's basically "Fragile Fred". They need a backup plan.

I looked up the stats. I don't remember the game specifically , but I didn't recall him fucking up the game. It sounds like it was more a case of not being able to make plays rather than a guy throwing a bunch of picks and losing the game.

Ben, don't you think they would have won had they not given away points on the two punt fuck ups?

Thats it right there.  San Fran would have gone to the SB if they had fielded two punts more than likely, or the D held both drives and allowed no points to score

They were losing the field position battle in the second half and OT. Smith...3 plays and out. Manning a first down or two before they punted. It played out that way in OT too before the fumble. Manning picks up a first down before they had to punt. Smith 3 and out. The Niners lived on winning field position and turnovers. When the game went into OT the only way the Niners would win was through a turnover. Unfortunately the Giants got the fumble.

How come the Lions haven't made any moves in FA? Their running game is the shits, and you'd figure they'd have at least made a move to get a guy like Tolbert. With Chicago making big moves this offseason to improve, Detroit might be looking at falling back to 3rd in the division

Well, Stafford & Suh both restructured their deals, so they could sign CJ, which was the most important thing. They've re-signed Stephen Tulloch, they signed a cb, & they're bringing in more FA's weekly. I'm predicting they use the #23 pick on an O Linemen.

They do need a rb & you're right Tolbert would've been a great pickup imo.

Props to Brandon for his part in 2 SB titles. Good leader when he was into it. His skills have deteriorated something fierce the past few years and I don't see how this is beneficial to him playing behind Gore and Hunter (who might be the best back on that team). Good luck to him, as long as he doesn't play the GMen.

The Giants do visit the Niners next year.
He only got a one year contract which means the Niners aren't sure about him.
