Nine and Counting

Yesterday, the Cleveland Browns dealt safety Chris Crocker to Atlanta for a fourth-round pick. This leaves just nine draft picks from the Butch Davis Era (2001-2004) still on the team. Only three of those players are starters: linebackers Andra Davis and Ben Taylor, and tight end Kellen Winslow -- assuming you want to count a guy who has only played two games in two years as a "starter." Center Jeff Faine was a starter, but has been essentially replaced by LeCharles Bentley and given permission to seek a trade.

Hutchinson Gone, Peterson In

The Seahawks lost guard Steven Hutchinson to the Vikings, but signed linebacker Julian Peterson to a seven-year, $54 million contract. I don't think Peterson was signed to replace Hutchinson, so who'll play left guard for Seattle in 2006? And how will this effect Shaun Alexander and the running game?

Tagliabue to Retire in July

Paul Tagliabue is calling it quits. Roger Goodell, the NFL's chief operating officer, and Atlanta general manager Rich McKay are the two leading candidates to succeed Tagliabue. Baltimore Ravens president Dick Cass is considered a dark horse. Anyone have thoughts on these three, or any other potential commissioners?

Marinelli: Lions 'Move On' Without QB Harrington

It's official: the Lions are moving forward without Joey Harrington. Well, it's not quite official, but according to the AP, "[Marinelli] declined to say whether Harrington had been released but he told reporters Monday: 'We've made a decision to move on... At this moment, he's not with us... That's been my decision.'"

Ravens Hold Off On Grabbing QB

It looks like the Ravens may wait until after the draft before adding some warm bodies at the quarterback position. Instead of settling on guys like Kerry Collins or Brian Griese now, Baltimore could try and land Steve McNair after April 30th depending on whether the Titans draft a QB and think Billy Volek can hold down the fort in the meantime. It will be interesting to see what happens if Tennessee doesn't release McNair and Collins and Griese have signed elsewhere.

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?
