    Preston Parsons. Kid has real talent, watched him play at NAU and he was with the Cards for a couple years as a back up. Green was foolish enought to let him go and keep Josh Mclown. This Kid is a gamer!!! if he gets a start he'll never relinquish that roll. I really think this kid is the best kept secret in the NFL. Make no mistake, Parsons is a starter in this league sooner or later.

    seems pretty quick to me.. good to know we are addressing problems immediatly. I wonder if grabbng cheatwood means we are letting an OLB go?

    If we let go of Tony B, will that free up cap room?

    even though tony was getting up there in age i felt he was a quality back up. Havent ever heard of this Preston Parsons. And yes isnt this a lot of transactions and the off season just started ?!?!?!?

    letting go of tony wont necessarily free up cap room. This was his contract year.. basicly, we wont resign him now.. and that frees up cap room.

    Im not sure how much we were paying him anyway.

    He is officially signed. He has a rocket launcher for an arm. Arm strength will never be an issue for this kid.

    Here is a story on Dave Ragone. Generally, no matter how the spin comes out, going to Europe is not a sign that a QB is ready to assume the role as top backup.

    Yes, this is normal. The roster will grow to 90 or so by July. A lot of guys will come and go between now and then.
