Patriots Sign Donte' Stallworth

As a Steelers fan -- mortal enemy of all things New England -- I'm very impressed with what the Patriots have done during the first week of free agency. The latest move, signing Dante' Stallworth, might be more important than the Adalius Thomas deal -- at least if you're Tom Brady. According to ESPN.com: "Stallworth will sign a six-year contract. The deal is believed to be worth a little more that $30 million with close to $12 million guaranteed." So, who will be catching passes next year for the Eagles?

Cardinals Sign Roderick Hood

I know, I know. You're saying, "I thought XP was only linking to major free agent signings. This is a major free agent signing?" Well, Arizona had a ton of money this off-season, and they haven't spent much of it. But what they have spent, they have spent wisely. The Cardinals had a Pro Bowl strong safety and a first-round cornerback who will hopefully blossom in 2007. They also had a below average second cornerback and a free safety who was a rookie when the Bears still played in Decatur. Those players have now been replaced by Arizona's two main free-agent signings.

McGahee Traded to Ravens for Three Picks

The Bills have traded Willis McGahee to the Ravens for the Ravens third- and seventh-round picks in 2006 and their third-round pick in 2007. That represents a draft value of somewhere around a very late second-rounder, depending upon where the pick is next year. The Bills apparently dealt McGahee in fear of not being able to sign him next year. At this point, do you think the NFL has noticed that the Bills are pouting?

Jones Gifted on Field, Troubled off It

By now, you've read hundreds of rumors, short blog posts, and discussion thread comments about Pac-Man Jones. But here's something a bit more substantial about Jones, his background, and the troubling question of why he acts the way he acts. I understand the idea of "keeping it real" and the fact that Jones's desire to stay true to his childhood friends puts him in bad situations.

Browns Sign Jamal Lewis

In 2004, the 32nd-ranked offensive line in the league, Miami, drafted Ronnie Brown. They also added Hudson Houck. The 31st-ranked team, the 49ers, picked up Frank Gore. Miami's rush offense went up to 14th in the league; San Francisco stayed at 30.

After the 2005 season, the 32nd-ranked offensive line in the league, Arizona, signed Edgerrin James in free agency. The 31st-ranked team, the Vikings, added Chester Taylor. They ended up with the 29th and 23rd best rushing attacks in the league in 2006, respectively.

Redskins Target Broncos' Bly

Last week, the Lions traded Dre' Bly to the Broncos for Tatum Bell and George Foster. Bly, who has a year remaining on his current deal, wanted to go to the Redskins, in part, because owner Daniel Snyder was prepared to give him a new contract. Washington is still in the Bly business, but the article mentions another potential trade that seems too good to be true: Denver offered linebacker Al Wilson, the 21st-overall pick, a third-round pick, and possibly a second-round pick, for Washington's sixth-overall pick.

The competition between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks for the services of former New England Patriots tight end Daniel Graham is over, and the Seahawks blinked first. Denver has signed the five-year veteran and former unrestricted free agent to a five-year, $30 million deal with $15 million in guaranteed money, according to Scout.com's Adam Caplan.
