Love me some Bell but how was Kiper Jr. wrong in his assessment?

Despres for Lovejoy?  WTF?

Agree. Not sure what they are thinking. Depres was pretty good as a 4-6 d man

Rutherford's other trades were pretty good.  Missed badly on this one

The best thing Kiper has done is keep the Devo hair alive.

Yeah, I liked Thurmond too, he could be a solid FA.

Cary Williams was cut by the Eagles too.  Another interesting option.

I think I've mentioned this before, but they really need to consider switching when FA starts.  It should be after the draft, not before.  Draft to build your team; fill holes via FA afterwards.

NFLPA would never allow it.

Good.  Can't stand the flapping gums on ESPN, and they are absolutely complicit in turning the draft into the shit show it's become.

Not sure.  RBs are a tough position to figure.  It's great having a bell cow like Bell, but you can't tie up a ton of money at that position.  It will handcuff you cap wise.  I think that's where Philly went with that move.  Sold high.

It's where Pittsburgh will be in about 5 years with Bell.  He'll ride out his rookie deal (hopefully he doesn't hold out for one sooner...) and will sign a big second contract that will be backloaded.  About three years in (probably around the same time Ben hangs em up or maybe a year later), they're going to have to decide if they want to have a RB that counts 8 digits towards the cap.  He'll be 27, 28 years old.

Shady had an "off" year, in which he rushed for 42 fewer yards than Bell; Shady is only 26, is a versatile weapon; etc.

Kiko is coming off an ACL, and good as he is, I can't see him having the overall impact McCoy would have. 

Seems to me this is about Kelly getting rid of guys who feel his system rubs them the wrong way.  (See also DeSean Jackson.)  Shades of pre-SB Tom Coughlin?

Is there more to this than meets the eye?  Does McCoy have some degenerative hip problem?  Why are the talking heads on the 212 saying the Eagles pulled such a great deal?  Seems like they should have gotten a draft pick with Kiko. 

Not often do you see a high profile player-for-player trade, and this one's especially odd to me.  Or is it all really about the cap numbers?  Do the Eagles think they have a plug-and-play replacement, or can find one in the draft or FA?

Steelers were all over the damned place.  Colbert and a large contingent at Wake, for whom I think is the target at 1.22, CB Kevin Johnson.  Colbert also went to Auburn for a look-see.  Pitt's pro day was well attended, naturally.  We were at UVA, and OLB Eli Harold was a guy they chatted up quite a bit at the combine.  I'd say he's our alternate R1 choice, or R2 if he falls.  FS Anthony Harris might be worth a look as CB but I have to see some workout numbers.  In Minnesota, TE Maxx Williams is the guy talked about as a R1 prospect, but I'm not sure that's who we're interested in.  RB David Cobb would be a real nice COP back to Bell, esp. if he fell to R4 after pulling the hammy at the combine and not running the pro day.  They might even consider him R3.  FS Cedric Thompson was a combine snub but tested well and should be a late round consideration.

*So if I were building the Steelers small board, right now it would be:

R1:  CB Kevin Johnson (alt: OLB Eli Harold)
R2:  OLB (alt: CB)
R4:  RB David Cobb
R6:  FS Cedric Thompson

*Based on how I think they WILL draft, and are showing interest.
