    Time to start fresh as combine is ending, and news will be flowing now - ah the lies....

    1) From multiple sources, if the Cardinals do decide to draft Murray, feeling is the best they will get in return for Rosen is a 3rd round pick - not too surprising, my thing is....why trade him, two young Qbs competing would be good yes?
    2) Philadelphia expects to have Carson Wentz for all OTA activities this year
    3) 49ers sign OG Mike Person to an extension - 3 year $9 million
    4) Ohio State Cb - Kendall Sheffield tore his pectoral during benching at combine
    5) Cole Beasley Wr - wants 20 million guaranteed - not per year but total deal guaranteed - good luck there Cole

    Rumors coming out of the combine - per ESPN:
    1) Arizona WILL take Murray #1, and will trade Rosen for best value
    2) yes Oakland likes Carr - but at $20 million, and with a draft pick that could be alot cheaper, could they trade him get a #1(probably late) and then get a fill in while who they draft his or next year takes over? - Capology at its best
    3) Add to that Oakland is looking to be aggressive in the FA market this year
    4) Per most - this won't be a good FA year, as the talent isn't that deep
    5) Expectations are - there will be a settlement in the Kraft case for prostitution, and there will then be some kind of punishment from the league

    Tampa Bay planning to FT OT Donavan Smith
    Philadelphia DT Fletcher Cox had foot surgery - no idea what the issue was, but expectations are he will be ready for camp.

    Good signing for 49ers with Person. Played well last year (graded out 28 overall for guards) and can move over to center if they need him in an emergency. Cheap at 3 million a year with only 3 million guaranteed. Even if Garnett beats him out as a starter (doubt the marshmallow can stay healthy enough), 3 million is cheap for a quality back-up.

    Clowney gets tagged as expected. I assume Cowboys will tag Lawrence, but free agency will be a lot more interesting if they don't.

    Figured but was hoping they wouldn't due to his not showing up without a new contract threats.

    Would have looked good in the scarlet and gold................

    Raiders have deal in place to play in Oakland in 2019 and option for 2020 if their Las Vegas stadium is delayed - just need three local votes with boards that is expected to pass.

    Hill's deal is said to possibly be record setting?

    That's really surprising to me. He's exceptional, but a step below the truly elite guys like Hopkins, Julio, OBJ (when healthy).

    Good for him though.................

    ESPN is reporting that a deal should be in place by this friday to send A.Brown to some other team. - So much for Pittsburgh holding out for top offer....

    Which leads me to believe that it's going to be to one of the rumored interested teams.

    Please God, don't send AB to Tenn.
