2010 Free Agency

SEATTLE- Just two days after firing former offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates it seems that Pete Carroll has already found his replacement. Former Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. Bevell was at the Seattle Seahawks Renton facilities earlier in the day and all indications put him as the leading candidate. However it's all but imminent that Bevell will be named the Seattle Seahawks offensive coordinator after the Minnesota Vikings made it official that they had hired former Atlanta Falcons quarterbacks coach to become the teams offensive coordinator. Bevell, 41, has been with the Vikings since [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
INDIANAPOLIS - The Indianapolis Colts will give John Chick one last chance to fully prove himself with the team. Chick was recently signed among three Colts' players to the team's off-season roster. Chick was a star at the Canadian Football League, winning the Most Outstanding Player of the Year honors in 2009. Chick was on the practice squad last season. The other two players the Colts signed were wide receiver Chris Brooks and cornerback Terrence Johnson. Both were also on the practice squad as well last season. I wish the best to all three of them, hoping they have a great success in the National Football League. Dwight Freeney had another great season with the Indianapolis Colts, which led him to making the Pro Bowl. But now, it seems like that will not be [...] Continue reading → | , , , ,
The Indianapolis Colts are cheap. There, I said it. Listen, when guys are in need, all Indianapolis does is sign former seventh-rounders or players we have never heard of. But many players like Blair White, Jacob Tamme, and Javarris James have been good pick-ups. But many of the rest have got to go. Indianapolis has realized that this season. I think in this year's free agency, the Colts should at least go for one big free agent. On the receiving end, they don't need anybody. But they need people on the offensive line. Here are some people that come up to mind that will be free agents this off-season: Jared Gaither - Gaither was on the trade block and is a big dude. The Colts need big offensive lineman. Gaither will most likely be serving in as left tackle, unless if the [...] Continue reading → | ,
Some of the greatest cornerback tandems are Lester Hayes and Mike Haynes, Ronnie Lott and Eric Wright, and Darrelle Revis and Nnamdi Asomugha? Reports have been coming out Sunday that Asomugha is a free agent due to incentives he failed to hit that would have enacted another year with the Oakland Raiders. Almost every team could use Asomugha, who is one of the best shut-down corners in the league. But could the New York Jets, who already have the best in Revis, go after him? Here are three reasons why it could happen. 1. Revis and Asomugha want to play together Last year at the pro bowl, reports came about that Revis and Asomugha were talking about [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , ,
The Indianapolis Colts have another injury added to the list, losing one of their top cornerbacks in Jerraud Powers. Powers was hurt after the Colts 38-35 overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys. He underwent surgery today. He had an arm injury and had six screws and a plate inserted there. Powers goes with a list of Anthony Gonzalez, Melvin Bullitt, and Dallas Clark that are on injured-reserve. Powers played ten games this season, having 53 tackles and two interceptions. This is a big loss to the team's secondary as they may lose Kelvin Hayden for Thursday's game. But if Hayden may play, he will be playing alongside with Jacob Lacey and Justin Tryon. [...] Continue reading → | , , ,
With all the recent changes and restrictions going on this season in the NFL I thought I'd do a continuing series (not exactly sure how many parts there will be in this series) going in-depth and reflecting on the NFL's new era of football and see what the reaction is. SEATTLE- Across America  the National Football League's rich history spreads from Buffalo all the way to Seattle and 30 more cities in between. Since the creating of the league in 1920, and expansion in 1966, the NFL has been one of the most popular sports in American history. One of the main reasons for the leagues success has been the strength in dynastic teams such as the Packers of the 60's, Steelers of the 70's, 49ers of the 80's and the Cowboys of the 90's. Even as recently as the 2000's the New [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,
With Terrell Owens and Chad OchoCinco coming to town, the Indianapolis Colts secondary better know what is coming to them. Jerraud Powers knows that. Powers said he is ready to play, according to the Indianapolis Star. "I should play this week. I'll be practicing," Powers said Wednesday. Jim Caldwell said he was very cautious with Powers. The Colts currently stand at 5-3 as they host the 2-6 disappointing Cincinnati Bengals. Powers participated in all the drills this week for the first time since his injury versus the Washington Redskins back in the middle of October. Owens currently has 55 catches for about 800 yards and seven touchdowns. Powers knows what is coming to him. "I think I'll probably see T.O. a lot," Powers said. "Him being an Alabama native and me being an [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
Short Stint for Moss in Minnesota, which leaves us pondering ,"Where Next for Randy's Routes across America"? It comes as a surprise that Moss would be released just weeks (October 6th) after he was traded for an undisclosed draft pick. During his time in Minnesota (the second time around) he caught 13 passes, 2 TD's on 25 targets in 4 games. To Moss' credit he was thrown into a new situation with NOT a lot of time to assimilate into the Vikings offense. Though to be my own devil's advocate, the routes Moss runs are pretty much - run down the field as fast as you can, perhaps cut or slant, look up, and catch the ball. Instead of focusing on the turmoil around his departure, lets focus on where he could go. I see 4 potential teams, with really one team standing out above the [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , ,
[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="360" caption="Although he hasn't got his contract yet, we all know Peyton Manning will become the highest-paid player in the league history soon"][/caption] Jim Irsay will have to wait until after this season until his star franchise quarterback Peyton Manning will get his new deal, according to the Associated Press. The Indianapolis Colts' quarterback looks to become the highest-paid player in NFL history. Irsay said he was set to give Manning his contract during the team's bye week, but Manning and his agent insisted that they will have the deal done after [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="295" caption="Randy Moss could be exactly what the Indianapolis Colts need"][/caption] According to Michael Lombardi of NFL.com, the Minnesota Vikings have recently released wide receiver Randy Moss. In last night's press conference, Moss should a lot of hatred towards the media. Overall, the conference was very controversial, as he kept saying so many positive things about the New England Patriots, as if he wanted to return to the team. Lombardi told NFL Network that Brad Childress told the whole the team that [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,
