-- Boulware Considering Holding a Workout --
Mon Jul 4, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's Len Pasquarelli reports with even his most ardent suitors still harboring concerns about his recovery from knee and toe surgeries, four-time Pro Bowl LB Peter Boulware is considering having a workout this month for all the teams that have indicated an interest in him. The workout, if arranged, would probably come in the next few weeks, before training camps open leaguewide. "It's obvious Pete is going to have to go out and show teams that he's healthy before they offer him a contract," acknowledged agent Roosevelt Barnes. "And if that's the case, then I'd rather have him do it one time, for everyone, rather than have to go through a series of these things. Like a come-one-come-all kind of thing. That's the way we're thinking now, if we can set it up at a time and place that works for everybody." Released by the Baltimore Ravens in early May, after the two sides could not come to an agreement on a restructured contract, Boulware visited the past month with the Houston Texans, Cleveland Browns and Seattle Seahawks. All three teams retain interest in him, but none has made a contract offer, and all indicated they wanted to wait until this month to get a better feel for the status of Boulware's recovery. If there is a group workout, it is all but a given the session would draw personnel scouts from other curious clubs, as well. If healthy, Boulware can be an effective player, and he is one of the few potential impact veterans still without a contract. Boulware, 30, spent the entire 2004 season on the physically unable to perform list as he attempted to recover from a knee injury sustained in the penultimate game of the 2003 campaign. He underwent toe surgery last December, the result of a November injury sustained in his first practice of the year, as he attempted to work his way off the NFL's physically unable to perform list. Barnes originally fielded inquires from 14 teams about his client, but Boulware has done as much due diligence on potential employers as they have done on him. Barnes said that his client's preference is to sign a contract before camps open.

I guess at this point we have to ask, is he and this year worth taking a gamble on because I am sure he wants more than a one year deal.

the question is already answered for the most part. Nobody has signed him at a high salary and he will have to face a contract that has less risk involved with the team he signs with.

Any more news on Boulware? Workouts? Offers?

I graduated from Florida State and am a big Boulware fan (both Peter and Michael). I would love to see Boulware come to the Texans. Injuries sometimes scare teams too much. Once he realizes he is not going to get paid like he thought, I hope he decides to play here. He would definitely be a positive impact on our team and bring some much needed veteran leadership. I know we have Wong but I have heard that he is more of a lead by example guy instead of a vocal leader.

When all else fails, get someone who went to college in Florida!

Default Dont give up on the o-line yet!

Hey I dont understand why yall are giving up on the o-line yet. It takes a few seasons for a line to gel together. Look at our left side we have a second year tackle and a 4th year left guard who played left tackle. Sure there is some inconsistancy in left side, and I hate watching Carr get blindsided close to almost every play. But who do we have to fix the problem right away? Victor Riley please hes just there to add depth, and make it seem like we tried to fix the problem. I say before we make any decisions at least wait till after training camp, preseason, then if Carr is still getting blindsided after the first 2 games of the season make changes during the bye week, when you have 2 weeks to look at what you have and make changes as you wish. But I say dont give up on them yet, there still young and finding their own feet in the NFL.

So are the Seahawks and the Browns but nobody will pay him the 3 to 4 million dollars a year that he wants. So here is the waiting game until he drops his price.

Actually the Browns owner said that he was made quite aware of the type of injury that Boulware had and did not want to take the chance on him. It is somewhere listed on this thread.

-- Boulware on a Mission --
Thu Jul 14, 2005 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's John Clayton reportsfree-agent LB Peter Boulware (Ravens) is normally quiet but he will have a little edge to his demeanor Thursday when he works out for teams in Tallahassee. He wants to prove teams wrong for doubting him following his release from the Ravens. Boulware has been one of the best players available in free agency but hasn't had offers for much more than $1 million. He turned down $2 million this season from the Ravens, which would have been a pay cut. Five teams, including the Seahawks, will attend the workout. Boulware is determined to have a 10-plus-sack season and wants to show he doesn't have any lingering knee or toe problems. He's on a mission. The Ravens would love to re-sign Boulware but they can't re-sign him for the $2 million they offered him a couple of months ago. Why? They have $9.3 million of dead money on the 2005 salary cap from his release. They have kept in touch with Boulware and have left the door open for his return if the numbers are right.
