        how the **** are we allowed to sign free agents?

        DETROIT -- The NFL says the Detroit Lions have violated the league's policy against tampering and ruled they must forfeit their upcoming seventh-round draft pick and exchange fifth-round picks with the Kansas City Chiefs.

        NFL commissioner Roger Goodell issued the ruling Friday for violations last year involving players under contract with the Chiefs. The fifth-round switch leaves the Lions with the 23rd pick in the round instead of the ninth.

        The league says the Lions commented publicly to the media about their desire to acquire Chiefs players under contract, and that they had impermissible contact with a player -- or his agent -- under contract with Kansas City.

        Either team can appeal the decision. The Lions said they have no comment on the ruling.

          Street free agents can be signed up until March 4th. Guys like Coleman and Bob Sanders/OJ Atogwe who were released by their teams are allowed to sign for another team.

            First year he was Falcon he was very good. Then he had to move to SS to make room for Thomas DeCoud and was just solid-pretty good. This past year he was struggling in coverage, then got hurt, and couldn't get his spot back because William Moore came in and played very well. So, I'd say he's still solid and at the very least a great leader/vet presence.

              So apparently Vernon Gholston is about to be released. Worth a flyer to bring him in on the cheap? Considering our LB corp, I'd say sure.

                Wouldn't Gholston be considered more a DE?

                  Coleman will at least be an upgrade over Brown. So that's good -- a veteran who has the skills if he wants it. Might be a nice guy to help Spievey make a big leap forward.

                  We can all stop holding our breath for Greenway now =(

                    You're right, my bad. I think he may be able to make the transition to LB though...he has the tools to do it. Either way, would he be worth taking a flyer on?

                      That's what the Jets thought, too. Now here he is a FA.

                      Gholston was an athletic freak and blew everyone away with his raw agility and strength. His substance on the field left a lot to be desired, but he was drafted as a project. That project has failed. There's no reason to believe he'll be any better here. He's several years older and his window of opportunity has shrunk. If the coaching staff sees reasons to believe he'll be committed to living up to his incredible physical potential, then none of us can know that and we'll see a surprise signing. I don't see it happening. Gholston's train has left the station.

                        Santana Moss voided his contract with the Redskins making him a free agent once the CBA is agreed to. He is looking for a 2-3 year deal at 5 million per. If they can save money by cutting Bryant Johnson I think it could be smart to cut him and use that money go after Moss. A good slot option and depth for Burleson/Megatron.
                        I only just saw this. I think it's a good idea. From what TomK wrote today, apparently the coaching staff wants someone who can stretch the field on the outside so Burleson can play in the slot in three-wide sets. Moss fits that bill perfectly. He's still got enough speed [I think] and savvy to win on the edge. He's been doing it quite well year after year in Washington.

                          How sick would it be running out Moss, Megatron, Burleson, Pettigrew with Best out of the backfield? He hasn't really had anyone to take the focus off of him in Washington the past couple of years either. He'll probably be out of our price range but they should at least check it out.

                          I didn't think Bailey would re-sign with Denver. Takes one more CB off the market. Even if he didn't sign with us it could have allowed another CB to trickle down to Detroit.

                            It still may. Denver has long been a favorite landing spot for Peterson because of Champ's impending free agency. With Champ coming back, it's for more likely they'll pass on the CB and take an impact DL, which was already a likelihood anyway. That pushes Peterson down, which pushes Amukamara down. We'll see!

                              That is a good point. I highly doubt Denver drafts Peterson now. It'll be dline.

                                AJ Hawk released by the Packers today. I'd love to see the Lions make a pitch for him.
