Redskins Deal Ramsey to Jets

Well, it looks like the Jets and Redskins split the difference. Yesterday I mentioned that New York was only willing to give up a seventh round pick for Patrick Ramsey while Washington was looking for a fourth rounder. Today the Jets got Ramsey for a sixth round pick. New York inherits Ramsey's contract, which only has a year left, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of deal they'll give him, and when they'll do it.

No Blame, Price Just Too Much

The good news: The Patriots are currently $20 million under the cap. The bad news: They haven't signed anyone to replace Willie McGinest, and currently have two WRs on the roster now that David Givens is a Titan. So what gives? Michael Felger has some thoughts on several free agents who might fit well in New England (with the added benefit of getting Monty Beisel off the field).

Is T.O. Headed to Big D?

Drew Rosenhaus has denied reports that Terrell Owens and the Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement on a contract, but Jay Glazer reports that a deal has, in fact, been reached. I'm just looking forward to learning the terms of the deal he eventually signs. I can't imagine that he'll end up with more money than he would have if he had just kept his mouth shut and played in Philadelphia. And what kind of clauses will his deal in Dallas have to ensure that he's on his best behavior?

Lions Sign McCown -- Harrington Out?

The Lions have signed Josh McCown, giving them five quarterbacks on the roster -- McCown, Joey Harrington, Jon Kitna, Shaun King and Dan Orlovsky. They'll likely bring four to training camp. Which one do you think will be released before then? Could it be the one who's owed $8.5 million this year?

Help FO Compile OLine Data

Hey folks, we want your help with a project we are working on to put together a database of the starting offensive line for each team for the period 1997-2003. (2004-2005 are done already.) How can you help? In the comments, list the main starters from your favorite team for each of those seven years, as well as you can remember, with positions: LT, LG, C, RG, RT. (Yes, we know there are injuries, but we're looking for the guys who started the majority of the games.) If your favorite team is already entered in the comments, no need to list them again, but we're trying to get all 32 teams.

Falcons' Schaub Won't be a Jet

The Jets want a quarterback and they'd like to get rid of John Abraham in the process. Unfortunately, one of their targets, Matt Schaub, isn't for sale (the Falcons like Abraham, but not enough to part with a first round pick). The Jets are also interested in Patrick Ramsey, but the Redskins are asking for a fourth round pick while New York is only offering a seventh. Meanwhile, Matt Leinart has expressed interest in playing in New York, but Tennessee could take him before the Jets get a chance.

Arrington's Agent Suspended for Two Years

There are no real details in the story, but I think this still merits a mention:

"Carl Poston, the agent for ex-Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington, was suspended for two years Wednesday by the NFL Players' Association's Committee on Agent Regulation & Discipline, the SportsBusiness Journal reported.

Vikes to get New Uniforms

I think I know why Daunte Culpepper wanted out of Minnesota -- the Vikings are getting new uniforms: "Steve LaCroix, vice president of sales and marketing, confirmed that the team is redesigning its uniform but would neither reveal details nor comment on a report that the design includes purple pants to be worn at home with purple jerseys."

Nothing instills fear in an opponent like purple on purple. All that's missing is to slap the likeness of The Artist Formerly Known As Prince on the helmets.

T.O., Keyshawn Cut Loose

Hmmm. I wonder if these two events are related? In other news, the Titans signed David Givens and Kevin Mawae, Mike Williams signs with the Jags and Kimo Von Oelhoffen is a Jet.

Brees Signs Six-Year Deal with Saints

Ugh, I am so disappointed. Maybe this sounds strange, but I do feel a connection to players when our stats like them more than the conventional wisdom. Drew Brees is one of "our guys" and I feel like he just walked into a black hole, unless Zachary Hilton is about to become Antonio Gates or something. Anyway, at least the guy got paid, six years and $60 million with $10 million of that in signing bonus. The Saints now say they will try to trade out of the second position in the draft. You know, because God forbid they draft a franchise left tackle to protect their new expensive quarterback.
