NFL Off-Season 2013


The Kansas City Chiefs already granted Andy Reid a second shot at NFL success. Now, they are apparently prepared to do the same with QB Alex Smith.
The Chiefs have agreed to a long-rumored trade with the San Francisco 49ers for Smith, FOX’s Jay Glazer reported. According to Tim Kawakami of the Mercury News, the Chiefs will send San Francisco “a No. 2 pick this year and a similar pick in the 2014 draft.”
Despite still having Matt Cassel under contract through 2014, the Chiefs made no effort to hide that they were seeking to improve at the quarterback position. News of the trade for Smith all but guarantees that Cassel will be released in the coming days; per league rules, San Francisco and Kansas City cannot formally complete the trade until March 12.

If that is confirmed, San Francisco's picks for this years draft will be......

1st round x1
2nd round x2
3rd round x2
4th round x1
5th round x2
6th round x2
7th round x2

plus any compensatory picks they may get.
Surprised the Chiefs gave up that much to get him to be honest, but then again they are the Chiefs.
Great pick up by San Fran:

The Baltimore Ravens agreed to trade receiver Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers, the team they beat last month in the Super Bowl, sources confirmed to ESPN.
The Ravens will receive a sixth-round draft choice in return, the sources said.

Boldin, who is in Africa on a mission, needs to pass a physical before the trade with San Francisco becomes complete.

The trade agreement was earlier reported by the Baltimore Sun.

The Ravens had reportedly asked Boldin to take a pay cut to help the team with its salary-cap situation. Boldin is scheduled to earn $6 million in the coming season. He carries a $7.531 million salary-cap figure.

They have got to be super bowl favorites ...
The Miami Dolphins and free agent wide receiver Mike Wallace are negotiating a five-year deal, with an agreement "very, very likely" to occur, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

The source also said the Dolphins are making a push to sign Tennessee Titans free agent tight end Jared Cook.

Wallace, a restricted free agent, had 1,193 receiving yards and eight touchdowns in 2011 with the Pittsburgh Steelers and was selected to his first Pro Bowl.
The 25-year old has led the Steelers in receiving touchdowns the past two seasons after tying for the team lead in his rookie season.
What a bust:

the Philadelphia Eagles announced that they released veteran cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha.

Surprise cut here:

The Buffalo Bills released quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, the team announced Tuesday.

Fitzpatrick was due to make a $3 million bonus this week as part of a six-year, $59 million contract extension he signed in October 2011.

From Eli to Cutler ... Good luck with that one:

he Chicago Bears agreed in principle Tuesday on a four-year deal with former New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett, according to an NFL source, making the tight end the club's first acquisition in 2013 free agency.

Financial terms of the deal weren't immediately disclosed. Bennett is scheduled to meet with the Bears on Tuesday night, according to the source.
One excellent pick up, and another solid one. Biggest winners in FA so far obviously

Free-agent inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe reached an agreement in principle with the Miami Dolphins, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter has confirmed. That means both of the Ravens' starting inside linebackers from the Super Bowl, Ellerbe and Ray Lewis, won't be returning next season.
Ellerbe stands to make $35 million over five years, according to The Baltimore Sun.

The Dolphins didn't stop with Ellerbe as the team also agreed to terms with former Raiders linebacker Philip Wheeler on a 5-year, $26 million deal, including $13 million guaranteed, according to league sources.

Ellerbe was the Ravens' best defensive player by the end of the team's Super Bowl run. This season, he finished second on the team in tackles (89) and sacks (4.5).
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed cornerback Bradley Fletcher, tight end James Casey, safety Patrick Chung, linebacker Jason Phillips and defensive lineman Isaac Sopoaga.

Casey's deal is worth $14.5 million, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
A versatile player who also can line up in the backfield, the 6-foot-3 Casey has spent his entire four-year career with the Houston Texans.
Casey, 28, had 34 catches for 330 yards and three touchdowns -- all career highs -- last season with Houston. The 235-pounder has hauled in 66 career receptions in 61 games.
Broncos making a bid for Welker.

The Denver Broncos have made a major splash in free agency, agreeing to terms with wide receiver Wes Welker on a two-year contract.
Welker's deal is worth $12 million, ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports.

Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway tweeted the club's agreement with the former New England Patriot.

"Excited to have Wes join the Broncos. His production & toughness will be a great asset!" Elway wrote.
The New York Jets suffered another free-agent loss, as leading rusher Shonn Greene finalized a contract Wednesday with the Tennessee Titans.
The deal is for three seasons and $10 million, league sources told ESPN.

The Jets didn't see Greene as a fit in their new West Coast system and didn't make a strong push to re-sign him. The Titans targeted him because of his bruising running style, which they believe will be an ideal complement to that of Chris Johnson, which general manager Ruston Webster mentioned in the team's statement announcing the signing.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made a move to upgrade their secondary, agreeing to terms with safety Dashon Goldson on a five-year contract, league sources tell ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. The deal is worth $41.25 million, including $22 million guaranteed.

Goldson was a key member of the San Francisco 49ers' defense and had 69 tackles and three interceptions for the NFC champions, earning his second Pro Bowl spot.
Goldson earned his first Pro Bowl nod in 2011 when he tied for the team lead with six interceptions. The team named him its franchise player for 2012, giving him a raise to $6.2 million last season.

The Arizona Cardinals reached an agreement in principle on a one-year deal with former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Rashard Mendenhall, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Along with San Fran, the best team in the NFL

The Seattle Seahawks have reached agreement on a two-year, $15 million deal with former Detroit Lions defensive end Cliff Avril, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Avril received the Lions' franchise tender last offseason and didn't sign his one-year, $10.6 million contract until a week after training camp began.
Avril, who will turn 27 on April 8, finished last season with 9.5 sacks, 35 tackles and two forced fumbles.

Pats replace Welker with ...

The New England Patriots moved quickly to replace Wes Welker, agreeing to terms with wide receiver Danny Amendola on a five-year contract.

Danny Amendola will be hard-pressed to prove as durable as Wes Welker. Since entering the NFL in 2009, Amendola has missed 23 games. Welker, on the other hand, has missed just three games during that span while also averaging more receptions per game and yards per reception.
Amendola's deal is worth $31 million, including $10 million guaranteed.

"Blessed. Thankful. Excited to get to work. Go Pats," Amendola tweeted Wednesday night.
Elvis has left the building

Elvis Dumervil has agreed to a multiyear contract with the Baltimore Ravens.

A league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that Dumervil's agreement is for five seasons and worth $35 million, including $8.5 million in Year 1.
The star defensive end's agreement with Baltimore was earlier reported by the Denver Post.

Dumervil became a free agent earlier this month after he was released by the Denver Broncos when paperwork for his reworked contract didn't make it back in time to the team. He had agreed to reduce his salary from $12 million to $8 million for next season.
Very sad...

DALLAS (AP) Pat Summerall, the NFL player-turned-broadcaster whose deep, resonant voice called games for more than 40 years, has died at the age of 82.
Fox Sports spokesman Dan Bell said Tuesday that Summerall had died. He could not immediately provide further details.
Summerall was part of network television broadcasts for 16 Super Bowls. His last championship game was for Fox on Feb. 3, 2002, also his last game with longtime partner John Madden. The popular duo worked together for 21 years, moving to Fox in 1994 after years as the lead team for CBS.
Summerall played 10 NFL seasons (1952-61) with the Chicago Cardinals and New York Giants. He started doing NFL games for CBS in 1964. He also covered the PGA Tour and tennis.

RIP Pat.
That is sad, he was very good at what he did. Unlike Joe Buck or Phil Simms, where do they get these ass clowns from these days?
It's happening across all sports. The commentators of my youth are gradually disappearing and being replaced by mindless ranting jerks.

Maybe Im just turning into an old git.
Some are okay though tbf. I think Aikman is good, the crew that does the Sunday niht games, Collinsworth and Al Michaels, I think, are pretty good.
Hes the stewie downing of the NFL

*knows nothing of nfl, stumbled in here whilst bored*
After being traded by the Jets, Darrelle Revis has agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a six-year deal, the Bucs announced on Sunday.
Tampa Bay sent a 2013 first-round pick and a conditional 2014 3rd- or 4th-rounder to New York in exchange for the star cornerback.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the six-year contract will pay Revis $16 million each season for a total of $96 million, but none of that money is guaranteed even though he is recovering from a torn ACL.
It will make him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history.
On a completely random note, I watched ESPN's 30for30 last night on the Elway to Marino draft. Brilliant television.

Anyone else seen it?
