Any idea who the names are for next offseason? Salary Cap going up so it should make for another lucrative year for good-to-excellent Players.

Tsizzle blows, he sucks at everything except Pass rush, but this year sucks at that too, good for Ravens though because if they want to retain him his price tag has probably gone down a good 15-20 million.

Both Derek Anderson and Michael Boley are restricted free agents, I believe.

Bob Sanders has been mentioned, not sure if Dallas Clark has been as well. I don't think the Colts let either just walk. Expect a deal for one and the franchise tag for the other, most likely.

The Titans will use the franchise tag with Albert Haynesworth if they can't come to terms on a long-term deal in time. At least that way they ensure themselves another contract year for Haynesworth to live up to his potential.

Um, hello? Randy Moss? He's playing on a one-year deal with the Pats, gang. He's actually living up to his potential this year to sucker another team into giving him massive money for the next few years. Maybe the Patriots franchise tag him as well.

Also, Donte Stallworth signed a deal that essentially makes the Patriots decide if they want to keep him after the firsrt year, the way it's structured if I can recall.

Expect LaMont Jordan to be cut by the Raiders and available on the open market. Green Bay, maybe? Partly because I see Michael "The Burner" Turner landing in Cleveland.

I would love for my Brownies to nab Bryant Johnson, or if the Titans do not tag Al i want us to make him the highest paid DT....by far.

Isn't Justin Fargas a UFA as well?

The thing with Samuel is he'll demand Nate Clements money, and while Clements didn't deserve that much money, Samuel deserves that money even less.

He's the only QB with any ounce of starting experience.

Do you guys think Alan Faneca should get more then both Eric Steinbach and Steve Hutchinson? Also whats the news on Alan Faneca is he leaving for FA?

I do think that Hutchinson is the best LG in the NFL.. But Faneca is better than Steinbach and Steinbach got even more than Hutchinson did.

Faneca is almost 100% leaving at this point.. it would take a drastic change for him to stay.

But Thanks to Cleveland and Buffalo, I can see Faneca getting a 3-4 year 28-30 Million roughly. With a lot of that up front.

Moss isnt about money..he'll come back for cheap. Samuel is earning his way on what were offering. We offered $7.5 last year..i expect to offer more..hope he agrees

Colvin..hes got a big cap hit..im hoping we can resign him
Bruschi will comeback for a year or two

Is Quentin Jammer really an FA? I'd be interested. I want Dansby for Patriots if Colvin or Bruschi leave.

no way. He'll be easy to resign. First of all..hes doing great and hes staying out of trouble. And second hes not going to demand money. He said whne he got here..money is not an issue..i got a lot of that over the course of my career but he hasnt won and thats what he wants. He cares a lot about winning, he came here. He wont be anywhere near the highest paid but i think we will show respect and give a decent amount either way. hes enjoying it here..never will Moss have any dispute over money around here.

i dont see use using the franchise tag next year on anyone..Samuel got promised he wouldnt if he plays a certain amount, Colvin is not worth top 5 highest LB so i odnt see us using the franchise at the end of season

Yeah, I'd like to re-sign Patten as well. Possibly Devery but with the emergence of Lance Moore and with Robert Meachem more than likely going to play next year I don't see why we need Terrance Copper.

I also think the Saints need to puruse Josh Brown like a fat kid chases down the ice cream man.

How isn't he going to demand a lot of money? Maybe thats why your GM and his agent restricted his contract? so if he wins a SB and puts up a large amount of yards that he would hit FA and get a large contract.

Also is Greg Jones a FA?

What I'm saying is if he gets a ring he could pull a Ty Law and be out for one last big pay day before he hangs it up I'm not saying he will but it could happen. This is Moss we are talking about any thing could happen I would not be shocked either way no way to know what the guy is going to do. He can say he is not about the money all he wants I have heard many of players say that over the years only to hold out and what not.

Just a note about the Randy Moss situation. I'm pretty sure Randy is going to want to get paid handsomely for his season. He's a businessman, he got traded to the best team in the NFL for a one year deal to strut his stuff. This is business 101. Moss is lining himself up for one last monster deal.

heres my opinion
Randy Moss is a team player..he used to talk about Brady in interviews before he even got here. He wants to win..hes getting that. He didnt ask for a 1 year deal. We gave it to him because he had him on a short leash. Hes happy as hes ever been and hes a smart guy..he said he would only restructure his contract to play here and thats what he did. I will bet money that he will not leave over money. Only way he leaves is he gets in trouble and we let him go..but im positive he will return here without a lucrative contract or franchise tag
