Scott Gragg is a 10-year veteran offensive tackle who doesn't have a job, but it seems certain that someone will want him. There's been a high rate of turnover at right tackle this off-season, and it'd be nice to have a dependable veteran on hand. I don't understand why the Lions, whose coach, Steve Mariucci, worked with Gragg in San Francisco, don't sign him. Right now they project Kelly Butler, a sixth-round pick last year who hardly played as a rookie, as their starter.
Len Pasquarelli also reports on his usual blend of contracts, trades, and other front-office dealings.

After three NFL seasons of kicking off from the 35-yard line, what has been the impact on touchbacks, returns, field position, scoring and injuries? Also, is this rule responsible for a record number of big comebacks?
