Since the league is determined to make sure no team takes advantage of an uncapped year, I imagine any contract signed will carry over into the next season that has a cap. Gesides with the 6 year rule in effect for an uncapped year, there won't be any FA's to sign.

Yeah that 6 year rule sucks. Lots of good players will not be available because of it.

Logan Mankins,Jahri Evans?,Carlos Rogers,Richard Marshall,Otogwe? Pretty much any free agent I would want us to sign.

Lions claim Maurice Williams, OG after being released by the Jaguars. The blurb says we inherit the 4 year 16 million contract the Jags gave him. But we don't owe him any guarenteed money, just his base salary. Just means we can cut him at any time without a cap penalty

For what it's worth on Williams ... a Michigan Wolverine.
Williams ranked eighth in franchise history with 100 starts in 106 games played since being selected as the club's second-round draft pick in 2001. Williams started all 16 games in five different seasons, making starts at right tackle, left tackle and right guard. He started 64 consecutive games, the fifth-most in team history, from 2003 to 2006. He was part of an offensive line that helped the Jaguars rush for the two highest single-season totals in franchise history from 2006-07 including a single-season franchise record 2,541 yards in 2006. Williams was replaced earlier this year by Uche Nwaneri in the starting lineup. The Jaguars have relegated Williams to the bench for six games in a row.

Detroit is desperate for G play. Dylan Gandy last game ... really?

Good signing with Peterman out and Loper hurt with back issues. Shack Harris was all over this one. Wonder why the Jags released him?

Wow, the mysterious "failed physical" strikes again!
We need G help bad ... even when Peterman is healthy we are a bottom 5 ranked team in G talent in the league. I'm leaning toward wanting Detroit to draft 2 in the Spring ;o)
1 more year for Backus with Pettigrew (TE) on his left & say Iupati (G) on his right. we get our LT in 2011 ... how's that sound?

I think Backus is gonna be cut this year. We can find a cheaper vet or even a Mid Round pick to play LT at Backus' level. He sucks. He's expensive and he sucks. I really don't think we have anything to gain by keeping him around.

We will not find a LT in FA ... if they are any good, teams keep LT's. I agree Backus's salary is ridiculous for his performance. But it's based on him being a 1st rd pick! (thanks Millen) Hard to cut a guys pay b/c he sucks. You just have to cut the guy ... and you very well could be right about them doing that this off season.
Drafting one is an obvious option ... if Jason Fox (Miami) slips to rd 3 that would be a great pick up. Chris Scott (Tennessee) is a versatile lineman with plenty of SEC starts under his belt. He is another 3-4th rounder I like. I just am not sold on Okung, call it a gut feeling?
I am leaning towards 2 G's right now. Maybe a G & C? (Railoa is getting up there in age too) Then getting an elite LT in 2011. So many holes, so few picks ;o) (thanks again Millen)
