The Super Bowl champion New England Patriots need to resign LB Dont'a Hightower.

Or draft a nobody in the 5th who ends up being better.

Pats have traded for the Colt's tight end, Allen and for a draft pick of some sort. Probably means Bennett won't be resigned

It was always very unlikely that Bennett would re-sign with the Super Bowl Champions.

I always liked Allen when he played at Clemson and he's shown flashes in the National Football League - another good spot by the Hoodie  ;D

Re-sign Hightower!

And Tony Romo being released by the Cowboys.
inevitable given the rise of Dak Prescott, a good analysis of why Dallas have to do this can be found here.  The complexities of NFL contracts under the salary cap is crazy!

Mixed feelings about this, time to move on but big worries if and when Dak gets injured...

Dwayne allen unfortunately can't catch the ball and was pretty disappointing. probably a fair trade though and maybe belichek can improve him

At cornerback it looks like they're signing Stephon Gilmore from the Bills. Surprised they're willing to splash out on a top quality free agent.  But that sounds like they're moving on from Logan Ryan.

Nope: it's Malcolm Butler they're looking to move on -

@diannaESPN
The New England Patriots are considering trading Malcolm Butler to the New Orleans Saints for Brandin Cooks per sources

Jeez: when will teams learn the #1 NFL lesson - Never trade with BB.

Agreed.

Keeping Butler and teaming him alongside Gilmore would give us a great starting duo at the cornerback position.

Really weird move from Texans perspective, or am I missing something? Browns get two picks (6th 2017, 2nd 2018) and Osweiler for one pick (4th 2017). Wasn't the biggest hit from Osweiler's contract last year anyway?

They wanted rid and didn't want to pay for him. Texans are on the cusp of something good, they'll need every dollar they can get. And maybe even Romo.

That sounds far too sensible to be a decision made by the Browns.
Osweiler must feel utterly humiliated knowing even the Browns don't want him.

The Texans must be close to a deal on Romo - they're essentially saying to themselves that a 2nd round pick plus a salary dump is worth it to get Romo for a few years. They're not far away from challenging in a weak AFC (Pats excepted). They wouldn't go this just to put Tom Savage as QB.

Browns really are doing smart things. They'll have all the draft picks this year and next. DePodesta is really shaking things up. Just hope that for their sake they can learn how to scout college players.

The Browns aren't in any rush.  They're looking fix other areas first (they've spent a lot on the O Line) and lots of draft capital next year if they fall for a potential franchise QB.  Last thing they want is a young QB who would get a beating thanks to a shitty line in front of him.

Speaking of shitty protection, how did Matt Kalil get $25mill guaranteed off the Panthers?  He was past it 2 years ago and did his level best to get Sam Bradford murdered last season.

Just because your salary cap figure is more this year than last year is nowhere near good enough reason to spend $25million on a revolving door at left tackle.

I'm told #Patriots would likely want #Browns No. 1 overall this yr & prob 1st in '18 for Jimmy. 12+ prob won't do it

If we're in the fantasy business, I would like a threesome with Kate Upton and Kate Beckinsale. My fantasy is much more likely to happen than the Pats one.

I agree but we just saw Cleveland take a QB who'll never take a snap for them because they have so much money.

Yes mate - I re-watched the Rose Bowl game from last year and he put in the single best individual performance I've seen in recent memory in college football.

He was spinning the magic bean  ;D

Yep, there were definitely signs but next year promises to be brutal. Big year for both the GM and the coach.

I suppose it was the right time to move on from Cutler and plan longer term, so fingers crossed there's a potential franchise QB somewhere in this draft for the Bears.

Why did your club release Alshon Jeffrey?
Not Ryan Pace's guy, I suppose. Also violated the PED policy last year but I'm unsure how much of an effect that's had.

All in on Kevin White now. Hasn't really managed to stay healthy so far though!

Also, interesting to see Jeffrey reject a longer term contract from the Vikings. Probably fancies Wentz over Bradford.
