After the signings from the Haynesworth/Bart Scott signings cleared, other players of note decided to wait until after the weekend to sign. The list includes players like T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Derrick Ward, and Brian Dawkins. All of these faces will have new homes when the season starts in September as players pursue their almighty paycheck in these days of bad economies and struggling workforces. Rightfully so. For instance, Brian Dawkins, a name that’s been synonymous with Philadelphia moved to Denver for a one-year contract that pays him as much
as he made in Philadelphia over the last two.
Philly fans know this, but they still don’t like that he’s gone. Such is the life of an NFL fan. Business, business, business. Get that money, folks.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got a new offensive solider today
when they traded for Cleveland Browns tight end, Kellen Winslow, Jr. As compensation, the Browns receive some undisclosed draft picks, something Eric Mangini surely covets. Additional picks will certainly help him as he builds the team in his image — although, was trading a franchise-level tight end the way to go? As a reward for his time in Cleveland, Winslow, Jr. will now be catching passes from an inexperienced Luke McCown.
I’m left wondering how that little detail hit the Solider from the U? Is McCown somehow more accomplished than Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson?
“Just got paid. It’s Friday night. Party hunting, feeling right.”
The NFL’s free agency period started at midnight, this morning, and there have already been some significant signings, none quite as big as Albert Haynesworth going to Washington for a bank-breaking $100 million
. The Haynesworth deal is for seven years, with $41 million being guaranteed. After signing the human defensive wall away from the Titans, the Redskins didn’t stop there, also re-signing defensive back DeAngelo Hall for $55 million over six years. Keep up with the NFL free agency signings here
and, well, all over the place, actually. I’ll be contributing at Cincy Jungle
as well, along with Josh and the rest of the gang.
