SITE NEWS: FO Needs Programming Help

Football Outsiders is looking for a programmer who can write a parsing program that will help us compile Audibles at the Line each week during the season. We're looking for some sort of code that will go through the Gmail thread, pick out everybody's comments, and then paste them all in one big document so that Rivers McCown can then go through and edit. If you think you can program something like this, please e-mail us at info-at-footballoutsiders.com with subject line AUDIBLES PARSER. Thanks.

Patriots Release Aaron Hernandez After Police Make Arrest

So there you go, folks. Clearly he did something. The Patriots will take a huge cap hit from the $12.5 million signing bonus they gave Hernandez a year ago, so you could argue that they did the moral thing by cutting him now instead of waiting to see what he would be charged with. Or, you could argue that they did the immoral thing because they are the Patriots and everything they do is evil.

Vikings Sign Desmond Bishop

Not usually the caliber of free-agent signing that deserves its own XP post, but 1) things in the NFL are really, really slow right now, and 2) this is one of the offseason's biggest holes that was still waiting to be filled. Bishop can play middle linebacker, which moves Erin Henderson back to the weak side and out of sub packages. It also means the Vikings aren't stuck starting either special teamer Marvin Mitchell or Patriots reject Tyrone McKenzie. Now, can someone please explain to me who is going to be Seattle's third linebacker?
