    According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns also attempted to trade for Alex Smith before he was dealt to the Redskins.
    Redskins signed QB Alex Smith to a four-year, $94 million extension through 2022.
    After the Redskins' acquisition of Alex Smith on Tuesday night, free agent Kirk Cousins is fully expected to hit the open market when the new league year opens March 14.

    As a Cowboys fan, I love it!! Redskins get a consistent playoff choker at the very end of his career for top QB money. I guarantee you, Scot McCloughan would've NEVER made this deal. Thank God the Redskins fired his ass and they can get back to what they've always been best at - Overpaying for old free agents!



    I bet Cousins is already here in Denver getting wined & dined by Elway. Locals are convinced it's a done deal.

    I would think he wants to sign with a team ready to win. You would think Denver would be at the top of his list

    I agree brother. Teams close to the cap 1 or 2 years down the road with talent have to look at him

    Cleveland Browns GM Jon Dorsey officially hired former GM of multiple teams, Scot McCloughan, as a consultant for talent evaluation. This is a big-time move for Cleveland IMO, as I honestly think this guy is the best of the best. Just because a guy likes to have a drink everyday doesn't mean he can't spot superior talent. Chris Mortensen just reported that the word on the street is that McCloughan has told Dorsey to pass on Mayfield. I'd love to see the Browns get back to winning and this hire should help them do so.

    Mayfield would be a good grab for a team like the Giants. Can sit for a year behind Eli

    The Miami Herald's Barry Jackson says it "would not be remotely surprising" if the Dolphins showed interest in C.J. Anderson should he be released by the Broncos.

    Bucs released Doug Martin.

    This move, which saves Tampa Bay $6.75 million against the cap, was fully expected following two seasons marred by injury, suspension, and ineffectiveness. Martin was an All-Pro as recently as 2015, however, and just turned 29 in January. He would be a good get for running-back needy teams on a one-year, incentive-laden deal.

    Browns acquired QB Tyrod Taylor from the Bills in exchange for the No. 65 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
    Packers acquired QB DeShone Kizer from the Browns in exchange for CB Damarious Randall.

    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jarvis Landry might still play under the terms of the franchise tag with the Browns.
    The two sides did not work out a long-term deal before the trade went down, and RapSheet reports Landry could play out the one-year tender to get a feel for how he fits in Cleveland before signing a long-term deal. It also makes sense for Landry to wait if the Browns are not willing to guarantee him the value of the tag this year ($15.98 million) and a large chunk of what it would cost to tag him next season ($19.18 million)

    Re: NFL Off Season News, Rumors, Trades and Discussion

    Packers release Jordy Nelson and signed TE Jimmy Graham. Lots of negative reaction by locals, paying Nelson a premium contract with his injury history+advancing age makes no sense. It also says a lot about how they feel about Devante Adams. No QB in the NFL is better at using TE's than Aaron Rodgers, I would expect him to revert back to similar numbers he posted with Drew Brees. Packers have tons of young WR that look good, not in the least shocked by the Nelson move. It was obvious to me that Jordy's recent drop in production is related to him just not getting as open as he used to. That is likely due to some lost athleticism from his oft injured legs or just age creeping in, probably a little of both. Whatever the case, casual fans have an emotional attachment to him, he is a very popular Packer. What most don't understand though is the business side of staying relevant year to year in sports means you must not sign high priced contracts with older guys that will look bad in the near future. JD can certainly relate to that concept as the Tigers signed a long term deal with Miguel Cabrera that looks absolutely awful right now, though at the time it made fans happy.
    "The sheer unpredictability of sports is what makes it predictable." Who the hell bets units? I bet money...

    I agree with every word of this. The Cabrera contract is going to slow down the Tigers rebuild quite a bit. Can't pay players for what they use to do.
