    Well since Free Agency is underway,I figured I would start the new NFL thread because of some really big news for one of my teams.

    The Bills just signed TO to a one year deal for 6.5 million. I really don't know how to feel about this. If they want a player to bitch about himself the whole time, I could have done it for at least half that.

    But he is a good receiver, when he is on his game. And that's something the Bills desperately need. His presence alone will force some double coverage and allow for their other good receiver, Lee Evans, to get some yards. Hopefully this will also allow Roscoe parish to break out in the WR position as opposed to just kickoff returns.

    Damn, I thought I was bad thinking about football 5 months before the new season starts!

    I think Jerry Rice is the best wide receiver ever, but TO is the best wide receiver playing today.

    I am not liking the fact that the Pats traded Casell. He was a pretty decent quarterback, and with Brady still in question (in my eyes) who the hell is the backup going to be??

    The Pats will find one. Not like Cassell was a household name at the start of the season.

    Um T.O. is not the best wide reciever in the nfl. Santana moss is my fav just because im a redskin fan and they did get some good free agents already. I would rather have fitzgearld or A. bolen than TO anyday..GO REDSKINS!!!

    Yeah it's nice to have the press back in our city, it's been 8 years since our last time in the playoffs.

    I foresee about 85 grabs, 13 touchdowns and about 1,100 yards. Hopefully the Bills can turn it on in the second half and hold up for a playoff spot. The Eagles have done nothing in free agency so far. We lost our heart and soul of our team, Brian Dawkins to the Broncos. I'm not sure why the Eagles didn't bring him back. Even this employee thought so and lost his job.

    Report: Facebook post costs Philadelphia Eagles worker job - ESPN

    I hope the Eagles have a great draft this year.

    Picking Up TO is a decent move on the Bills part. Besides, its a 1yr deal and if he acts up they can drop-kick his ass at the end of the season

    I however am upset that Buffalo lost Greer. Every time they have a CB I like, he leaves the team.

    A wide receiver's main job is to catch the ball and make touchdowns.....Terrell Owens is second all-time in receiving touchdowns behind Jerry Rice! So yes, he is the best wide receiver playing the game today. People may not like his personality, but you can't deny his abilities.

    As an Eagles diehard I would glady give the Cardinals a first round draft choice for Bolen.

    The Chiefs traded for Matt Cassel.

    Free agent-wise? They've sat on their asses with nearly $60M in cap room.

    Methinks I'm in for another long season this year. Sigh.

    thoughts on the Bills:
    TO leads the league in drops and hissy-fits
    Trent Edwards has a rare disorder where he thinks receivers are 5-yards closer than they actually are
    i don't see this ending well
    Bills don't believe in keeping their in-house CBs, prefering to let them go and drafting another one to develop then let go
    i feel another 7-9 season, possible 8-8, probably 3rd in the East only ahead of the Jets
