    Nick Williams is a former Steeler draft pick.

    Also Howard Jones did not receive a tender. Still recovering from a torn ACL.

    I understand what you're saying. The problem for these teams is the fact that you have to spend 85% of the cap. So front load a lot of these contacts. People like the Browns have to really over pay to just get players to sign in that shit hole. It's ruining the league cause bums are getting huge paydays and leaving the good players asking for even more.

    That must be a typo. Even frontloaded it doesn't make any sense

    • 49ers have set their sights on wide receiver Pierre Garcon. Garcon could make as much as $16 million in his first year (Chris Mortensen, ESPN.com)

    The New Orleans Saints are continuing to talk with Eagles, Titans and Patriots in a potential Brandin Cooks deal. (Ian Rapoport, NFL.com)

    Ravens losing their LT. Also FB Juszczyk appears to be coming to terms with SF. Big losses for them.

    Bills have restructured Tyrod Taylor's contract and he is staying in Buffalo. Browns were very high on Taylor.

    Garcon has been a bust for years. $16 million? He ain't worth half that.

    Romo to be released by the Cowboys on Thursday.

    and that's why Bell couldn't get the transition tag, the FO couldn't have matched a frontloaded contract

    Take it for what it is as it's Steve Smith reporting it but he was right with his other breaking news.

    All signs are pointing to insanely stupid contracts this free agency season. There is too much cap space, not enough good free agents.
