Have you ever noticed how Peter King writes his most newsworthy items as if they were merely asides? Here's his comment on Indianapolis this week: "Enjoy having Edgerrin James on this team while you can, Colts fans. He's a Raider or Dolphin or Buc or Cardinal next year."
I trust King's opinion on these matters as much as I trust any football writer, but I think if the Colts let James go, they'll only do it if they're getting major draft-pick compensation. And this does look like it'll be a good year to draft a running back.
The Ravens quarterback will need to greatly improve his performance from last year if he's going to live up his huge new contract.
