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.

The Giants and Ravens set a record in Super Bowl XXXV with 21 total punts. That record may well be in jeopardy. But in this battle of top defenses, Carolina's superior and more flexible offense gives the Panthers the edge.
