Russ and Sherman will absolutely get their deals.

A lot of Pete's defense consists of system guys. They don't have a bunch of linebackers that really make you saw "wow!", I will give them the fact that they do have a very good D Line...but they are system guys as well. They recycle through new pass rushers year after year and still get results. The secondary is what makes the defense work.

Russ just won a super bowl as a 2nd year QB...hes going to get his money and hes likely a guy that will take a hometown discount as well because he strikes me as a guy who wants to win, and win, and win some more. I could way off base, but thats something I could see happening.

As it turns out, the Browns didn’t make a decision on which extra veteran quarterback to keep, they kept both of them.

According to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the Browns have signed Tyler Thigpen to a one-year deal, while Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports they’re going to sign Vince Young too.

Both quarterbacks were in minicamp with the Browns this week on a tryout basis, and both apparently made a good impression on Cleveland coaches.

Yes cause the awesomeness of Tyler Thigpen and Vince Young will keep the Browns from drafting a QB.

49ers exercise 5th year option for Aldon Smith.

Quote:
NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Friday that the team will exercise the pass rusher's fifth-year option, according to a source. The 49ers later confirmed the decision, just one day ahead of Saturday's deadline.

There were legitimate questions as to whether the 49ers would keep Smith around beyond 2014. General manager Trent Baalke acknowledged last week that the organization was "disappointed" with the outside linebacker's ballooning history of off-the-field concerns, the latest coming when Smith was booked on a false report of a bomb threat at the Los Angeles International Airport in April.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport told NFL Network on Friday that despite Smith becoming a "frustrating figure for the 49ers," the team "met on it" this week and considered the $9.754 million option a "smart business move" for the team.

Rapoport also reported that a turning point in the 49ers' decision to keep Smith was the All-Pro's reaction to a very intense and real conversation with Baalke on Wednesday, according to a source informed of the situation. Smith's response to the GM's words helped convince the Niners that he was worth committing to. Before this conversation, it was unlikely San Francisco would pick up Smith's fifth-year option.

Smith might still be subject to a league-imposed suspension for his latest antics, which come on the heels of multiple felony gun charges and a DUI during his time in San Francisco. He started last season on San Francisco's reserve/NFI list to undergo voluntary treatment for alcohol and drug issues before returning to the field in Week 9.

Were he not such a force on defense, the 49ers would have parted ways with Smith weeks ago -- if not last season -- but his 42 sacks over 43 career appearances are irreplaceable. Baalke and friends are betting on the fourth-year defender getting his life together in a hurry.

If I was a 49ers fan I'd be happy with the stuff he pulled off the field. All it's done is drive his price down and force him to stay there.

Yes teams should just tell their players to go out and be a complete dumb asses so they can keep them longer and cheaper.

Didn't say that at all. But that's been the direct result of his ridiculous actions, football-wise and financial-wise.

If he was clean cut and didn't do these idiotic things, they'd have to commit to him long term. Now, they are getting a stud player for cheaper. It's Smith doing it to himself but football-wise, cap-wise, it's helping the 49ers.

Who says they are going to make the playoffs? Also if San Francisco was smart they should just suspend him for the whole year.

Who says we aren't? We're most likely making it unless we have a rash of injuries and/or Kap gets hurt. I personally feel good about playing the NFC East and AFC West this year. Feel good about our schedule for the first time in two years.

You never know injury bug could hit plus you play in the the toughest division in football. All 4 teams should complete for the division and you never should assume you are going to make the playoffs. I am not saying the 49ers will not make it, but they have a tough road ahead with the off season they have had and they are still in the NFC.

I have confidence in this squad making the postseason. There have been quite a few years in the past where I didn't think we were making the playoffs. I didn't think we were making it in 2011. I'm not going into this season thinking we aren't making it since we've made it the past three times. Obviously injury can change everything, but that wouldn't change my prediction on what teams are going to make the playoffs. Injuries are random for every team so I don't factor them in.

I could understand an argument that San Fran suspending him for a whole year would be the right thing to do, or maybe that it would send a message. But first, it's not the way it works - the NFL will suspend him.

And if the goal is to win games, they wouldn't be "smart" to suspend their best pass rusher for the year, no.

That's my point. They are basically getting a cheaper, humbled star to give everything to them from this idiot. He can't hold out, they don't have to commit to him, he has to work his ass off because he knows he's walking a thin line - they just get him on their terms.

Also, Seahawks re-signed preseason star O'Brien Schofield to a one-year deal. The Giants gave him a 2-year, 8M contract earlier in FA, many screamed they overpaid him, and then he "failed" a physical. Just passed Seattle's apparently.

I can't believe how that happened with both him and Saffold. I usually don't subscribe to conspiracy theories at all but those two examples are just glaring. Especially after Saffold signed IMMEDIATELY with the Rams.

Schofield really showed a lot when he had a chance last year. Really makes me feel better about the draft. I thought he was a good get for the Giants when they signed him. Glad to see him back in Seattle.

OK, now I don't know what to think of any of this. Maybe he really does have an injury issue. It's worth that money to find out if he can heal in time for camp. Not worth 2/8M to find out, though... so maybe it was legit.

The Aldon Smith overreaction stuff has been pretty fantastic.

That's interesting. Honestly for that price it's worth the gamble. He was definitely an intriguing guy, I don't know anything about him but I found him interesting.

If he can provide some kind of 3rd down pass rush at that price it's worth it. I wish it worked out with the Giants so I could check him out.

But there definitely is a big issue with his health if he goes from 8 mill to 730k. The Giants medical staff is usually spot on with evaluations, I can't ever recall them doing anything shady in the past.

In fact, there were times when they were accused of doing so (ie Steve Smith) only for the player to find out that they should have listened to the Giants all along bc their careers were over bc they gambled with their health.

So if the Giants staff flags someone for health, I tend to believe it.

But at 730k it's worth the gamble.

Yeah I actually never saw the # until you asked. Not as excited anymore. Clearly there's something up. He's worth more than that...

The odd thing is that he played in the SB. Very weird situation. Kind of feel bad for him too - that's a large disparity in money and I can't imagine he ever made big bucks...

The interesting thing is he failed a physical for an injury that happened while he was a Cardinal. I wonder if it's become worse since then.

A lot of people were suspicious because they announced the signing, everyone says they overpaid, then all of a sudden he fails a physical and they immediately resign Beason. Looked like they used Schofield as leverage. They also offered him to sign for less money after the failed physical.

That huge money disparity makes it look a lot less suspicious.
