Dave Ball says that Tracy Rocker wants the free agent back for next season. Ball had a break-out year in 2010, totaling 7 sacks in only 11 appearances. A combination of a hip injury and a concussion landed him on the IR, but if he's healthy Ball would make a great guy to keep in the newly revamped D-line rotation. You always have to worry about a team falling in love with Ball's game film from last year, but he could be tempted by a longer contract for less money since the 30 year-old has bummed around the league on one year contracts for the past 7 years.
Chris Hope talked to a South Carolina paper about this off-season, the lockout and his upcoming charity function.
Jason LaCanfora thinks Jake Locker has the highest bust potential. Of course he also says that Locker could have fallen to the second round, which seems absurd when you look at how the first round shook out behind our pick.
Guess who led PFF's ranking for completion percentage on deep throws... of course he's got the lowest attempts of anyone on the list other than Colt McCoy. I'm guessing PFF didn't count his most important pass attempt of the year... because his shoulder pads only made it a few rows deep.
5th round pick Karl Klug and I don't have a lot in common.
The Giants signed Keith Bulluck last off-season, and now Giants fans are wanting Stephen Tulloch to step in at MLB. It's a Bleacher Report piece, so take it with a giant block of salt.
Here's another primer on the next significant court date in the lockout. I'll warn you that I didn't read a single word of this because... well honestly I just don't care about this issue this morning.
