Steve Smith signed with the Ravens on March 14. DeSean was released on March 28, four days ago. He wasn't available when Steve Smith was signed. DeSean isn't that big a risk. He's always been a diva and knucklehead, since high school, but he also has always been productive. He was considered a character risk before he was drafted, that's why he slipped to the second round. Kenny Britt is a risk. Nine arrests and declining production. DeSean doesn't seem like he'd be the nicest guy in the locker room, but he's probably not that risky a signing.
They do. We need a vertical threat. Garcon is a viable number one receiver, but is better at short and intermediate routes, with lots of YAC. He's not the type of receiver you send on a 30 yeard go route. Moss is getting old, he's lost most of his speed. He may be cut before camp. Hank is horribly inconsistent, and isn't a deep threat anyway. He's a possession receiver with questionable hands. They signed Andre Roberts early in free agency, but he can play out of the slot. Garcon, Jackson, and Roberts would compliment each other well.Quote:
I'm not sure what to think about The Eagles cutting him. It is partially a cap move, the guaranteed part of his contract has been paid. I'm willing to believe this is more office politics, Kelley purging someone who isn't "his guy". DeSean is a diva. The Eagles have done this before. They gave up on Chris Carter early in his career. Carter was not as productive at that point in his career as DeSean has been at this point in his.
Yeah I know, but I felt like there were rumblings about DeSean being a "cap casualty" long before it actually happened. Or am I mistaken? When someone is in the doghouse or isn't one of the new HC's "guys" it usually gets out and you hear about it. It happened here with Harbaugh and Chris McCalister, it happened with Bernard Pollard when he started running his mouth. Different situations, but yeah. This definitely seems beyond a simple cap problem, it isn't like Jackson doesn't put in work, last year was his best year ever.
The deal is done, so I guess now we hope for the best. He's been productive enough that they reward should outweigh the risk. It is not like he is one of those players constantly getting into off the field trouble.
I'm a fan of Sammy Watkins, not of the Bills trading up to get him. I don't like burning two number one picks on a WR, especially not in this draft. Too many good wide outs this year.

Dallas needs to draft Johnny Football. It would be the most Jerry Jones draft pick ever. This needs to happen. ESPN would explode.

The Rams drafted Aaron Donald. This could happen

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Jerry, no. Johnny Football was available and you took a guard?! Horrible.

If I could summarize this draft with one pic:
How much of a turd is Tony Dungy? I lost a lot of respect for him with comments like these, especially given the examples stated in the article. Flawless reasoning Tony, jesus christ...
Pretty much a no brainer that the suspension isn't appropriate at all. Roger Goodell can't even worm his way out of that argument.
SEASON STARTS!!!! HELL YEAH LEH GO
Steve Smith...such contract...very drops...amaze....much clutch....w0w

About this Ray Rice situation...
Multiple reporters said the NFL/Ravens had seen unreleased footage from inside of the elevator. Even if you hadn't seen the footage, what exactly did people think happened? That he farted on her?
The Ravens even tried victim-blaming to spin this in their favor http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...blaming-tweet/
People need to be fired. Not only in the league office, but people who work for the Ravens as well. I wouldn't mind see Goodell ousted as well.
Yeah, Gary, I don't know. I mean, when we saw him dragging her out, what exactly did people think? The fact that he only got the two game suspension in the first place is a travesty.
Goodell should be fired, you're right. There's no way that the NFL/Ravens hadn't seen the truth of the matter, but even if they hadn't, come on, he clearly knocked her out.
I'd like to see a wholesale firing of NFL officials and some of the Ravens officials. I don't think Harbaugh needs to go, but the President and GM probably need to go.
Goodell is the guy that needs to be fired. If he didn't see that tape before handing out punishment he's incompetent. If he did then he's even worse. I mean, now I hear when he interviewed Ray Rice's wife about the incident Ray Rice was allowed to be in the room. WTF!!! That's just insane. Especially if he had seen that video before the meeting, which he should have.
Obviously anybody who saw that tape and was still trying to smooth things over for Ray Rice needs to go. Ravens, NFL front office, and whatever DA handled his case. I sorta doubt Harbaugh or most of the core football people knew much since it isn't something they would have needed to. But whoever their legal guy is would have had to have seen that tape along with the front office people who assess player penalties for the Ravens organization, just like Goodell.

This is amazing.
Nothing about Detroit screams "amazing" to me
