    Patience.

    I like splashes as much as the next guy, but I trust the Rams to execute their plan. Besides, a splash could be moments away.

    Or, we fill holes economically.

    Report: Raiders bring back Darren McFadden on one-year contract
    Posted by Mike Wilkening on March 11, 2014

    The Raiders are bringing back Darren McFadden for 2014.

    The club and McFadden have reached a one-year, $4 million contract, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday.

    According to Joel Corry of CBSSports.com and National Football Post, $2.25 million of McFadden’s compensation is in “unlikely to be earned incentives.”

    If Rashad Jennings departs in free agency, McFadden would likely be the clear-cut starting back entering 2014. Latavius Murray, Kory Sheets and Jeremy Stewart are the other backs on the Raiders’ roster. It’s also possible Oakland could add a back, what with McFadden signed through 2015.

    Great minds think alike. I alluded to this same thing in another thread about Saffold. The difference here is that Amendola went to a team that actually wins. I think the Raiders are paying too much for someone with a history of injuries, albeit he is still very young. He won't last long as a tackle. Too much space for him to cover/protect which is where he has been the most prone to injury.

    But, they signed him as a guard.

    Still, one bump of the head and dude is out for X amount of games, again.

    Is it Bethea that Tavon just ran past against the Colts last year? Where the speed differential was so great that it looked like he was standing still?

    A revolving door is the 49er secondary it seems.

    Potentially, im not 100% sure. Even so; that whole secondary looked terrible. Bethea scares me a hell of a lot less than Whitner.

    Bears bid farewell to Julius Peppers
    Posted by Mike Florio on March 11, 2014

    [​IMG]AP

    Julius Peppers wasn’t a free agent at 4:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday. He now is.

    The Bears have terminated Peppers’ contract, a six-year, $84 million contract signed by the former Panthers defensive end in 2010.

    “We appreciate Julius’ contributions to the Bears over the last four years,” G.M. Phil Emery said. “He was a leader on our defense starting every game since coming to Chicago. His accomplishments over his NFL career place him among the best defensive ends over the past 20 years. The Chicagoland community has benefited greatly from his quiet generosity. We wish him the best.”

    Peppers made $53.5 million in four seasons. The move avoids $14 million in total compensation for 2014, along with $16.5 million for 2015.

    The second overall pick in the 2002 draft instantly becomes a free agent. It’s unlikely that he’ll be offered anything close to $14 million for 2014.

    Anyone know who the highest paid guard in the league is?
    If this is true then he must be up there...

    Saffold was a great Guard for the Rams. Too bad he is gone.
