Would you be willing to give up 2-1, this years 7th & next years 7th for Vince & Mallet?

Throw in Derek Newton.

Any trade they're willing to do, you have to walk away from.

May not have to re. Vince. Just heard on 97.5 he's formally asked NE to be released. Not budging on a pay cut. Don't sound like our wallet is fat enough at the moment. Just guessing here.

If we wait 'till they release him, we won't be able to afford him. If we trade for him, he's ours for one year.

They'll get the cap relief they need/want, the 2-1 which they want, but we're not willing to give, We don't "need" Wilfork (we're not winning the Super Bowl in 2014) but he fills a hole for 2014, we've just got to eat his cap (making Schaub a June 1st cut pays for it), & we get Ryan Mallet (assuming OB wants him).

What happened in Oakland?

How did one team fail offensive tackle Rodger Saffold on his physical examination, while another team passed him?
Quote:
What injury does Saffold really have? Based on media reports, the offensive tackle suffered a dislocated shoulder in the preseason opener at Cleveland. He missed the next preseason game, but participated in the final two as well as the entire 2013 regular season.

Medically, when a player dislocates his shoulder, the labrum is typically torn. The boney anatomy of the shoulder is like a golf ball on a tee. The ball (head of the humerus) doesn’t tend to stay on the tee (in the socket/glenoid) when the edge of the tee (labrum) is chipped.

Assuming a player at the NFL Scouting Combine was presented with such a labral tear, I would fail him on his physical, but note that he has a correctable problem. I would advise my team that he could still be drafted, but would want them aware of potential surgery. Sometimes the team stays away in these instances, while other times the team chooses to draft and fix the player immediately. A third option would be to draft the prospect and have him play through the upcoming season with a brace before considering future surgery. Each case is unique.

I don’t believe Oakland or their doctors botched this process. The Raiders just weren’t willing to ignore the pre-existing condition. I also don’t believe the Rams or Saffold were hiding anything. Clearly, the Rams believe in Saffold’s shoulder enough to re-sign him. This is just how business is conducted in the NFL.

We may see something similar with Schaub. He is fully healed but docs/organizations could differ on whether he should be playing.

If you wish to see who's done what so far in free agency, check ESPN's F/A tracker.

LINK

you can sort by team, position, status (signed/unsigned), type (UFA, RFA, etc.), or year and see for yourself who has done what so far.

This link was probably provided by Playoffs or somebody but it's buried so deep I thought I'd repost it for those of you keeping score at home.

If you have another source/site (or three) that keeps a running score on F/A happenings like this one does, I'd love to see it and bounce one off the other.

Meanwhile, I'll keep watching
what else can fans do anyway?

Peppers in a 3-4 will be interesting. So will him lining up next to Clay Matthews. What a nightmare for an o-line.
