Wanted to pass this along from Dan Lewis, who some of you may remember wrote an essay in last year's PFP. Dan and his friends have started a new site called ArmchairGM.com, which they call "the world's first world-writable sports blog and encyclopedia." It's basically a public sports news and commentary site based around the Wikipedia engine. Anyone can write an opinion article, report sports news, or contribute to what they hope
will be the Internet's most thorough sports encyclopedia, with no registration required. Head on over and check it out.

Guess what Peter King discusses this week? That's right, it looks like Adam Vinatieri's run with the Patriots is over. He also mentions something about a labor dispute too.

Instead of renegotiating his current deal -- one that required the Redskins to pay him a $6.5 million roster bonus -- Lavar Arrington "essentially agreed to give money back -- and forfeit the upcoming roster bonus -- so that the Redskins could get some needed cap relief while allowing him to find another team through free agency."

From Jay Glazer: "FOXSports.com has learned that the Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with Pro-Bowl running back Shaun Alexander on a whopping eight-year, $62 million deal that includes a total of more than $15 million in the first year in bonuses (signing and roster) and salary." FO has always believed that running backs were fairly replaceable. More and more teams seem to agree with that statement, leading to a glut of running backs on the market. That may have started to tip the scales the other way, so that the best running backs are actually undervalued.

From Jay Glazer: "Teams had been under the pretense that if they were going to release players to get under the $94.5 million salary cap it had to be done by 6 p.m [Sunday night] ... The league, however, has notified teams that this deadline has now been pushed back to 10 p.m."

Admittedly, I don't know anything about new offensive coordinator Tom Walsh, but is anybody else troubled by the fact that he's been running a bed and breakfast the last few years and has been out of football since 1999?

Sunday morning update: Gene Upshaw, the executive director of the NFL Players Association, told the Washington Post via e-mail early this morning that the parties had scheduled another meeting in New York and were "now in the area where we will get a deal. I think it may be there. It comes down to a few final points."

We've all grown accustomed to the maniacal rantings from the Page 2 regulars, but Bomani Jones writes one of the most fascinating pieces for The Site in some time. Yeah, Vince Young may or may not be illiterate based on his Wonderlic performance, but maybe the real intelligence test question should be: Why did you hire some criminal lawyer to be your agent and your uncle/middle school teacher/coach to be your business manager when neither have any experience in dealing with the NFL? And part two of the question: Are you still hiring?

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, LeCharles Bentley will be an Eagle come Monday. The story also reports that Philly will make a run for Steve Hutchinson, in an effort to shore up the offensive line. And good news for Lions fans: Jeff Garcia's name has been mentioned as a potential Donovan McNabb backup candidate. (free registration/bugmenot required)

Rivalry week has significant conference and Playoff ramifications. Should Alabama, Mississippi State, Oregon, or Florida State be worried about getting upset by their rivals?
