Jim Wyatt culls some comments Peyton made on NFLN, and they probably have the most insight we'll ever get on what happened over the past week.
PFF had two notes regarding the Titans and free agency yesterday in their live blog:
09:10 SIGNING! In an interesting move the Tennessee Titans have splashed some cash on a five-year deal for Kamerion Wimbley. The deal is worth $35m so can we safely assume that Wimbley, for the first time in his career, is going to be an every down defensive end role? He spent the past two seasons working as a linebacker on base downs before shifting to end in the Raiders sub package defenses so it's something of a projection to expect him to hold up. Wimbley is at his best when he can pin his ears back and go after the QB, as it proved last year when he picked up 59 combined sacks, hits and hurries.
17:47 One of the more noteworthy cuts could turn out to be that of Jamaal Jackson. The former Eagles center was among the best at his position in the league until injury ended his 2010 year, and he was unable to find his way back onto the field outside of 17 snaps this year. Perhaps the Eagles coaching staff saw a different player, or perhaps they just wanted to get younger, either way the Tennessee Titans are looking at Jackson. It's not hard to understand why with Eugene Amano constantly one of the worst starting centers in the league since shifting from guard to replace Kevin Mawae. He was ranked 32nd at the center spot in 2011.
Chris Johnson's 2012 salary is now fully guaranteed, meaning he'll cost us $8 million, and is officially 100% not going to be cut. Not that it was ever a viable option...
There are many women in this world who know a lot about football, and can speak about it with insight and eloquence. Carrie Underwood is not one of those women.
Myron Rolle has 'landed' with the Steelers, who signed him to a virtually useless future's contract.
