Wagner has a 84.5 rating, Reiff a 67.5 rating from PFF

I didn't realize that Rieff rated that low, thanks for that.  I knew he had some struggles but didn't know it was THAT bad.  

Is there any chance they re-sign Warford or are they looking at another guard?  I've been out of football mode for a while.

Wow, I didn't expect the Lions to sign Wagner.

Build the trenches, and if you have money and are going to overpay, do it for someone that's good.

I don't think that is an overpay.  I think it's market money for a top rt.

Need a good linebacker (or two). Not enough money to sign zeitler.  Might not have enough to get warford either if this is what above average right tackles are going for.

An overpayment, but free agency will do that.

I agree with that. Overpay is probably an incorrect term. Market premium is maybe a better way of putting it.

Warford isn't coming back. I'm guessing Tomlinson gets the first shot at taking the job, with Dahl as the alternative.

The Lions signed Wagner because he's so good he can make up for having Laken Tomlinson next to him, by blocking two players every play himself. Brilliant.

We signed Paul Worrilow too. Not sure what the plan for him is yet. 1 year deal

MLB I'd assume, he is better than Whitehead.

I like the Wagner deal.  Whether it's an overpay or not, it's cheaper to do that on the lines than it is for WR/RB/DB.

Paul Worrilow and Ricky Wagner . . . Quinn is killing it so far this off-season.

Worrilow should be a backup/special teams guy.

I think he can be your run down SLB. I basically consider that position a backup spot, so we kinda agree haha

I agree, but hope that we do more to upgrade MLB, which is a relatively important position IMO. If we are going to keep Levy around, I'd move him there personally and look for a speedy WLB in the draft(or two)

Supposedly we are looking at Jared Cook pretty hard. I think that could be interesting. His blocking graded pretty respectably, so he can play true TE opposite Ebron. I think he would likely eat up Boldin's money.

Per Birkett, they are designating him a June 1 cut, so they save 5 million.

Fricken awesome.  I really like Quinn.  Saves 6 million against the cap for a guy who had no interest in playing.  Quinn has done some good work this week.

The Texans just traded Osweiler and a 2nd round pick in next years draft to the browns for...nothing.  Dang.

That trade makes no sense to me.  Osweiler + 2nd rounder + 6th rounder for a fourth rounder?  Steal for the Browns.

Boo! How does new orleans have any money left?

Well...a lot of us were saying it was likely that warford will be gone.

He was great for one year, hurt for another, and average last year.  Good value for a third round pick.
