Because we didn't know Kelly was going to be cut. He won't demand a huge contract and can hold the spot down for the next couple years while we find our space eater.

Every dollar you spend on someone else is one dollar further from signing Aso.

A deal can be reached but not signed until Friday according to Schefter.

Speculation that Rex Ryan might want him in NY. Says Gregg was a Rex Ryan favorite when Rex was with the Ravens.

Sounds logical, but Didn't the Jets just spend their first 2 draft picks on DTs?

I'm guessing him and his agent are taking calls right now (hope the Texans are one of them) and probably by Wednesday he has an agreement with someone.

Isn't it normal for the top FA to have a deal day 1? I remember Hayneworth signed basically at midnight of FA period.

My thoughts exactly. I think they're better served getting franklin for 7m, joseph or marshall for 7m, and weddle for 5 vs nmandi for 20m

Frankly, I like our chances of making ONE big splash than hitting on three separate nice pieces, even if breaking it up and spending it on three guys might help us more.

You have to make sure a helluva lot of things go right to get three pieces like that.

I'm really thinking the Joseph re-signs with the Bengals which would take him off the market. I would have loved to get quality signing likes him + weddle, but it's easier to do in Madden... harder to do in real life: convince 2 stud pro bowl players to come play for you.

I still think we have a decent shot at Asomugha and I don't think he's going to command $20MM a year, it should be less (I'm thinking $15-17MM range. I'll bet the percentage of his contract that is guaranteed though will be one of the highest in the league.

I think anybody that has a chance to get out of Cincy while they can, they will. The only way Cincy re-signs him is if they overpay, JMO.

I saw this last night and I was thinking that Mason could be a good replacement for JJ. I seem to recall that he has pretty good hands.

Any thoughts on that?

He's 37 years old. Last year was his worst year since 1999.

I don't see him as a replacement for anyone.
