Here are Peter King's thoughts on free agency so far. He's very big on the moves made by the Cowboys, although for someone who just wrote a column about Drew Bledsoe being over the hill, he sure does engage in a lot of Bledsoe hyperbole. ("The last time he played for Parcells he was the kind of bombs-away, productive player who put up enough numbers to merit a trip to Honolulu." Peter, that was nine years ago.) I can't argue with him about the other Dallas moves though. I also agree with him that Derrick Blaylock is a good addition to the Jets, that Washington still seems to change strategies roughly every three days, that Oakland needs defense, and that Trent Dilfer to Cleveland seems a little odd. I'll disagree with him that Nick Saban has been smart to sit out free agency in Miami. The Dolphins started the offseason as a team that needed an entire offensive line and a running back and still are a team that needs an entire offensive line and a running back.
DeMarco Murray is the toast of the NFL, but injury and team issues clouded some observers' view of his talent. Texas RB Malcolm Brown might have the same problem this winter.
