    Ryan Fitzpatrick signs with Washington, for enough money to be the presumed starter going into training camp as the Redskins discarded Alex Smith.

    Nick Vigil signs a one-year deal with Minnesota.

    Patriots did sign Henry Anderson to a 2 year deal. At least they did one thing right.

    As predicted, the Dolphins don't make a move on any of the white linemen out there. However, they did re-sign Vince Biegel so that's one good thing I suppose.

    Good for Fitzmagic. Hope he can finally reach the playoffs to cap an incredible career. I mean the ‘Skins aren’t that good (assuming Kerrigan walks) but that division sucks right now (Giants may not be that bad but too early to tell).

    Nick Vigil did well with the Chargers last year, especially in coverage. With Eric Wilson gone I think he’ll slot into the LB3 role (a starter in Zimmer’s 4-3-4) behind Barr and Kendricks. Seems like a logical successor. Would give Harrison Smith some company once again in the defensive starting lineup. Hopefully Ryan Connelly and Cam Smith can be LB4 and 5. Minnesota may not be what it once was but under Childress, Frazier, and Zimmer they’ve typically had one of the better defenses.

    Anderson is a good, underrated signing for the Pats. Sadly the only good thing they did.

    Notable OL still available:

    LT Riley Reiff
    LT Eric Fisher
    RT Mitch Schwartz
    RT Ricky Wagner
    RT Ty Sambrailo

    G Forrest Lamp
    G Kyle Long
    G Joe Dahl
    G JR Sweezy
    G Richie Incognito
    G Brian Winters
    G/C Ted Karras
    G/C Austin Blythe

    C Alex Mack
    C David Andrews
    C Austin Reiter
    C Nick Martin

    Probably a few others I missed but these are the best ones off the top of my head. Still good talent out there. Disappointed in Zietler, Thuney, and Elflein’s decisions for sure. Sigh

    Nice signing to go along with getting Henry Anderson. Hunter will receive $25 million guaranteed, which indicates he's seen as the starter ahead of Jonnu Smith, who also has talent but isn't consistent. But they need a legitimate quarterback, otherwise both will be doing a lot more blocking than receiving.

    Smith leaving Tennessee also moves Anthony Firkser to the top of the depth chart there for now at least. He looked quite capable of handling the role last season.

    Stupid and baffling signing. They don’t have a qb, they just signed another TE and the Chargers didn’t keep Henry to provide Herbert with a security blanket.

    From a fan perspective very pleased but from a caste orientated view I think there are obviously better places for him to end up at.

    I do think as Don says he will probably be the first tight end for the Pats so hopefully will get good production as a safety net for Newton.

    Henry Anderson is a very good player and will help the Pats up front aswell and a couple of the other guys are decent such as Mills at CB/S but the big disappointment is being stuck with Cam at QB.

    Still waiting on lots of our guys to move lots of good white talent out there to be picked up.

    So much black mediocrity getting signed. Why are the 49ers trying so hard to re-sign Trent Williams? Go after Eric Fisher instead.

    1st round sumo bust Danny Shelton cut from the Lions. Forrest Merrill would be a wise option if you wanted a productive interior D-lineman in the draft.

    Jihad Ward - 2016 2nd round bust with 59 career tackles and 8 career sacks gets a deal from the new old Jaguars - this team is going to be up there with the Shack Harris/Black Jack Del Rio days in no time.

    Taco Charlton - 2017 1st round bust with 74 total tackles and 11 sacks gets a one year deal from fat bastard.

    Derek Rivers - 2017 3rd round pick of draft genious Belichick with 7 total tackles and 2.5 sacks in an injury ravaged 4 year career gets a contract from the Texans

    Takkarist McKinley - 2017 1st round pick gets a deal with the Browns. 79 total tackles and 17.5 sacks over 4 years.

    All-time bust John Ross gets a contract with the Giants. Not an ideal way to help a young QB.

    Titans 2017 1st round dud Adoree Jackson cut. This guy was very hyped up in college at USC and during the draft process. 2 ints in 4 years.

    When there's so many busts and near-busts, the Caste System has no choice but to continue to recycle them. It's funny how the DWFs get excited when a retread is signed to "their" team simply because he was a high draft pick years before. The media continues to do their job of associating busts with White players from the 1990s rather than the non-stop avalanche of Black ones over the past decade-plus.

    It's blatantly obvious how mediocre to downright bad alot of them are too yet they are almost always afforded every excuse in the book to reach their unquantifiable upside.

    Also wanted to apologize if some of my posts are coming off as overly critical or harsh. The Hunter Henry signing especially makes no sense. He could of paired with Herbert and been a dynamic tandem for years to come - not sure if it was the Chargers or Henry who were the catalyst for him to move on. It's a stupid decision either way you look at it.

    Fitzpatrick's amazing career continues. It looks right now like Fitzpatrick and Allen will vie for the starting job. After seeing Fitzpatrick last year it's obvious he still has something left in the tank and will probably get a start with his 9th! NFL team.

    I've been arguing with some DWF's over on Finheaven. Take a look. What should I say next to these clowns? They're talking about bringing Rodney Hudson so we have a 5/5 sumo O-line. Notice how they try to completely twist around what I said.

    Gostsis, Taven Bryan and Wingard aren’t going to be Jaguars much longer that’s for sure. Urban Meyer staying true to his caste clown MO

    You can’t rationalize with dwfs and their black supremacist fan counterparts. You can’t even rationalize with casual sports fans when it comes to the caste system.

    As of now it looks like the Bears are going with Dalton as their starter. That's a pleasant surprise as it looked like he was going to finish his career as a backup. And Fitzpatrick starting for Washington is cool.

    The hysterics of Bears DWF's after the pipe dream of Wilson or Watson inevitably went nowhere will be entertaining. Dalton is heading into a hornets nest given the Bears are about to be blown up, but congrats on the payday.

    For that reason I was hoping they would get one of the guy's you mentioned.

    They may still draft a quotaback. Dalton's on a one year deal so he's a stop gap.

    Every mock I've seen has Chicago or New England grabbing Trey Lance. Could very well happen.
