I was just thinking .... considering that that the Browns run a 3 man front, does anyone really think Williams going to make any kind of an impact for them? Because I
sure don't see it happening!
TT wiped what, $6M? off the books for a guy who normally needed help to make an impact and who (IMO) wasn't seriously outstanding enough to be called a franchise player.
Now that I see what TT had in mind, my faith is restored!
And now after the deal with Bengals has fallen through, the Browns have ALSO done a deal for the Lions' NT Shuan Rogers.
I have to wonder what Williams is thinking right now? LOL
Lions got Cleveland's 3rd round pick and a player (CB Bodden) as opposed to the earlier proposed deal with the Bengals for a 3rd and 5th pick.
I see Faneca has been gone with the Jets for what's reported to be a 4yr, $32M deal which includes somewhere around $23M in guarantees. So he's off the FA market of available OGs.
OH ... and after finally being released ... Javon Walker is still out there if anyone is interested! LMAO
So here we are ... over a month before the draft ... and sitting at $24M under the $116M (?) cap
Eagles CB Lito Sheppard might start looking to be traded after they signed Asante Samuel and made him the highest paid CB in the league. And the rumor is that he's going to take Samuel's #1 spot.
Sheppard signed a 5yr, $25M extension in 2004 and is scheduled to make $2M in base salary in 2008. I know he's missed games in the past from injuries, but I think he would be worth paying $2M just for experienced CB depth. It would depend on what the Eagles wanted in return. I'm sure Reid doesn't want another TO type situation happening in his locker-room.
Have a good one
