    Josh–
    Nobody in the state of Michigan cares what Drew Sharp has to say. I ahve no idea how he still has a job at the News. I would not use anything he says or writes as a lead.

    Anyone think if Huff gets released that a bunch of teams would try to acquire him? Deangelo may have stunk in oakland but watching him every week he played pretty well for the skins. Huff could be a steal, he has the talent and maybe a team switch would be what is needed to get his career going. Besides there hasnt really been recently a list of 1st round busts at safety, I’d definately take a chance on him.

    The article about Matt Cassel going to Minnesota is WAY off. The reporter still think Cassel still has a non-exclusive tag and can be talked to. The fact is Cassel is an was given the EXCLUSIVE franchise tag and The Vikes would have to give up TWO first round draft picks to get him.
    NOTE FROM THE ARTICLE: “The key here is that Cassel, like Allen, did not have the exclusive franchise tag placed on him and thus other teams are NOT prohibited from making him an offer.”

    Cassel did sign a non-exclusive tag.

    Not that it’s a huge issue, but Vonnie Holliday played RDE in the Dolphins 3-4, not NT/DT. Granted, he’s probably a DT in a 4-3, but he played end last year.
