No chance, he doesn't fit our scheme physically and I can't see Eddie lead blocking for DD. His asking price will be to high as well...he is clearly a quality guy that I would love to have in the locker room...but it's just not going to happen.

Eddie George is a RB, not a FB. He is also over the hill, over-paid, and would be lucky to be the third RB. Why would he even be interested in coming here? This one has no chance.

Question

Mike Pittman from the Bucs would be a big running back for us, if his problems are over. It would give us an awesome running game with Hollings and Davis. His problems have all been in the state of AZ. He played at Fresno State and so I've seen him run. He is a very hard runner and will run over people. I really don't know if Casserly and company would look at him, however. Given his problems he might not have a high salary value. The Raiders are probably a more likely stopping spot, but we passed on his availability once before.

Michael pittman is not a guy the texans would be interested in. His off field problems are disturbing.

There is no way Pittman will want to come here since he would be #3 on the depth chart. Frankly, there is no real upside for us to take a flyer on him anyway...too much money for not enough skills, potentially a major 'tude problem. The front office has took the strong stance of picking up quality lockeroom guys and good citizens, this is clearly evident from the excellent chemistry that our team shows as it grows up together.

I thought (and I went out on a limb here) that we might have had a shot at Dennis Northcut, but he just resigned with the Browns.
Come on J-man Bradfords not a bad reciever he's just dropped a couple of balls but who on our recieving corps hasn't (Billy Miller included) what Bradford has been is a scapegoat for a young team have patience, and as for leader ship roles Bradford has spent alot of time in the off season bonding with AJ and Gaff .............ok ok maybe they were going to the club and playing playstation but thats how guys bond

Let me clear something up...I don't think Bradford's ability at WR is in question, he's not bad at all. I am thinking of what he brings to the table as far as leadership and teaching qualities; it is common practice to bring in an older, but still capable, QB to work with your hot new draft pick and that is the same tact that I was taking here. I also noted that he might be that guy but it is definetly not evident.

Last note...being a buddy isn't always the same as being a leader or a teacher.

Default Joe Johnson

I think Joe Johnson would be a great signing for us... He'd be a perfect fit as an end in a 3-4... He's about 290 lbs and can rush inside and out. He'd certainly be good insurance for Gary Walker and I think he could push Robaire Smith to the nose if something happens to Seth Payne.

Also, I'd be interested in checking out David Terrell... I don't think he's been given a fair opportunity in Chicago - though I'm not really in position to have much insight regarding him.

I believe if David Terrell is released whatever team picks him up will be picking up a good WR that hasen't had the weapons around him to be good.
