Saints Re-Sign Marques Colston

Reported terms: five years, $40 million, ~$19 million guaranteed. Jay Glazer broke the story.

The Saints had to make a choice between Colston and Carl Nicks, and this contract seems like a decent value all things considered. Since Nicks was demanding to be the highest-paid guard in the NFL, it makes plenty of sense to go with Colston.

ESPN: The Redskins' Big Gamble

The Redskins are taking a big risk by trading up in the draft for the opportunity to take Robert Griffin III. He projects as a great franchise quarterback, but the loss of so many picks will hurt the team's depth in the short- and long-term.

Mark Sanchez Gets Extension

Reported terms of Sanchez's contract at this point: five years, $58.25 million, $20.5 million in guarantees for 2012 and 2013.

I would have posted about this last night, but I wasn't sure if it was a hilarious dream or not. Either way, obviously, this is a silly deal for a player who has played like Sanchez has to this point in his career. Maybe he will break out in season four and make it look respectable -- he has taken baby steps forward each year -- but it's hard to reconcile that with the fact that he'll make more money than Aaron Rodgers will next year.
