The PFT lieutenants have done a great job of holding down the fort today while yours truly has bounced around from PFT Live preparation to the PFT Live show to post-show workout (ever since Jay Glazer accused me of being shaped like a pear, I’ve been trying t0 at least adopt the shape of a Rubik’s cube) to post-workout radio.
But now it’s time to jump back in and make sense of the stuff that has been happening today in Minnesota.
Before I do that, let’s add another name to the draft invite list. Courtesy of our friends at The Dan Patrick Show, TCU quarterback Andy Dalton has been invited to the draft. The news specifically comes from Andrew Perloff of SI.com, who appears with DP under the alias of McLovin.
The Colts have shown interest in Dalton, and Adam Caplan of FOXSports.com reports that Dalton will visit the Saints.
If either team uses a first- or second-round pick on Dalton, it would raise eyebrows in the same way that the decision of the Eagles to pick Kevin Kolb at the top of round two in 2007 when Donovan McNabb was still the starter.
And it possibly would imply something even stronger than that, given that both Peyton Manning and Drew Brees decided to apply their names to the antitrust lawsuit about which the owners uniformly and consistently have been complaining.
