    And now with CB Aqib Talib a Bronco, Patriots figure to make a real push for Darrelle Revis.

    For former Dolphins OT Jonathan Martin, SF traded a conditional 7th-rd pick in 2015 if he's on 49ers' opening 53-man roster.

    The Broncos have reportedly emerged as the favorite to land DeMarcus Ware. Denver is the only team he's set to visit

    Denver is going ALL IN for 2014. Holy hell are they spending money. Tj Ward, Aqib Talib AND possibly DeMarcus Ware?

    I feel some embarrassment from the Super Bowl lingers.

    And that this is Mannings last season...

    Allen in Seattle is a good fit. He wants to win some playoff games and they have a few holes to plug.

    This is the craziest few hours I have seen in FA... Wow. Tampa Bay has made the biggest splash in the first day if FA. Oakland is the biggest head scratcher.

    Kid is skilled and sadly never was on a team to develop. Not saying he will become a star but dude is a great guy to have as a backup and mature in his skillset while not starting...besides Kap is a runner....someday someone will run over him and they'll need a backup for a few weeks.

    Marshall was a trade, not a FA signing.

    Packer fan brethren thoughts? Here is the list of our unrestricted FAs this year:

    *I have ordered them in order of importance I feel to the team getting resigned, not whether I desire them back or not...JJ is prime example, as I love the guy but not as crucial as others for the team IMO.

    1. Johnny Jolly
    2. Evan Dietrich-Smith
    3. Mike Neal
    4. BJ Raji and/or Ryan Pickett
    5. Jermichael Finley and/or Andrew Quarless
    6. James Jones
    7. James Starks
    8. Matt Flynn
    9. John Kuhn
    10. C.J. Wilson
    11. Marshall Newhouse
    12. Robert Francois
    13. Seneca Wallace
    14. Kahlil Bell

    Obviously some have equal value or could be switched one up or one down...anyone else think a guy like Newhouse or Kuhn or Wilson should be crucial to resigning?

    In roughly 72 hours, NFL teams have handed out more than 1 Billion worth of contracts.

    Geez, and to think I would take a pay cut if I could make $50k a year to be a hunter/fisherman.

    Personally I would take far less if it could be my full time pay the bills job :)

    She carried and gave birth to my daughter, the most important person in this world to me. My wife is treated as she deserves to be. :) She's also a very good wife - I can go camping, hunting, and fishing whenever I want.

    I hear ya, my wife luckily isn't a big spender and understands our spending directly relates to our income :) Blessing to us is she hates numbers so I run the books and accounts so I basically tell her she can spend "x" amount and she is good about that....now I'll be honest I track everything a ton and am harsher on my spending than when it comes to stuff for her...she is a blessing and is treated as such in any way possible.

    That's a good thing!! I didn't mean to imply my wife overspends or that we are in any debt or anything. We share the responsibility of being the household banker...but I tease her all the time since I make more :lol:
