The NFL’s free agent market is open for business. Rumors, news and speculation has been rolling in for weeks and we now are finally ready for some solid movement.
As signings/trades are reported check back for the “Sports with Balls” crews thoughts on the moves.
5/12 WR Randy Moss – (Titans) 49ers – 1-year/$2.5 million, with another $1.5 million possible through incentives.
– After a year of retirement, Moss makes his return to the NFL. His workouts reportedly went out well. The Niners take a shot that he has the desire/physical ability to still play.
5/13 WR Marques Colston – (Saints) Saints – 5-years/$40 million
– Coltson has surpassed the 1000 yard mark in receiving yard 5/6 seasons. The Saints resign one of Drew Brees weapons for the next 5-years. Time to turn the attention to the QB.
5/13 WR Brandon Marshall – (Dolphins) Bears – Traded for two 3rd round picks.
– Marshall caught 81 passes for 1214 yards from Chad Henne & Matt Moore. The Bears look to add production to an offense in serious need of pass catchers.
The AFC defeated the NFC in the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl by a 59-41 score. The AFC outscored the NFC 21-6 in the 4th quarter to pull away with the victory lead by Pro Bowl MVP Dolphins WR Brandon Marshall (6 catches, 176 yards, 4 TD’s).
