    Ha Ha. Of course Fat Al is going to suck now. He has nothing left to play for.

    He played for the Titans for 7 years and didn't make a name for himself till he stomped on some poor guys head three years ago. He didn't get good till it was his contract two years ago.

    Over paid, over priced, over hyped. This will be the last we speak of fat boy unless we are talking about how much trouble the Skins are in cus of his contract.

    it continues to boggle my mind how franchises like the raiders and redskins can give ridiculous contracts (fat al & hall) and still stay under the cap

    Wow, that's alot for him... I wonder how the fans are going to feel knowing between the 2 guys they signed are going to get that much money..They can expect their ticket prices to go up !! And they are still going after other guys and they will still have a 1st rounder to sign...they must have really under that cap!

    Dan Snyder is like George Steinbrenner when it comes to picking talent for his franchise. Just throw a bunch of money at guys with talent no matter how they fit in with the squad. I will be curious to see how the skins do with that much money obligated to two players.

    I ma glad to have Fat Al out of the AFC South thats for sure.

    Contracts like that just drive up the price for every other FA out there...

    Redskins fans are gonna be the ones to pay ultimately. Same as everywhere else...you got high dollar products and you pass the cost on to the consumer.

    I was priced out of the NFL a long time ago.

    This greatly effects the Texans and what D-Rob is going to want.

    No joke especially when you look at where and when they were drafted.

    Great news for us (and the Colts & Jags). The Titans will still be tough,
    but not as tough without AH.

    This was similar to my first thought. I'm definitely rooting for Dallas at least twice this year

    That Titans defense just got weaker.

    I don't care what anybody says in contradiction to my statement.

    We had an easier time beating the Titans last season with Haynesworth on the bench. He was getting double-teamed and STILL breaking through to get to the ball. He is very disruptive. Period.

    KVB is a good player, don't get me wrong. But he's also benefiting from playing alongside Haynesworth. The Titans better find AH's replacement int he draft, and I don't think they will.

    Gone to the NFC. That's even better.
