    Ahhh…nothing like the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel upholding their rep as being no more than the NFL’s version of the National Enquirer. Maybe a linebacker in the fourth or fifth, but they aggressively need to pursue a penetrating DE for Matthews to freelance off of. They get his style of play back without the chip blocks or double teams and they easily move up 20 spots in the defensive standings. No one remembers that the team kept undrafted FA Vic So’Oto (Junior Seau’s cousin) through last preseason’s cuts. He’s good enough to leapfrog Brad Jones and play as well or better than any of the players listed in the Packers article. They’re already deep enough at that position.

    I intentionally left out Walden because he’s pretty much done in Green Bay. Jones is the player for So’Oto to beat out at ROLB.

    Todd McShay of ESPN thinks the Browns have to trade up for Baylor QB Robert Griffin III.

    Anybody get the feeling they’ll stand pat yet again and wait for Ryan Tannenhill later? And if Shay is co-signing on Griffin, then DEFINITELY take Tannenhill.

    Steelers GM Kevin Colbert gave an interview on WR Hines Ward’s future with the team and other offseason topics.
    ———————————————-

    He had his worst season – career lows in every category (even unecessary roughness and crack-back penalties, he cant create separation)

    The Texans will celebrate their 10th anniversary throughout the 2012 season.

    K Josh Scobee and the Jaguars are working on a long-term contract.

    Well, that pretty much wraps up the AFC South for Jax.

    The development of athletic tight ends like Jermichael Finley of the Packers has made inside linebacker a hot position for this draft class.

    No, that would be the development of athletic tight ends like Jimmy Graham.

    Honestly, you guys act like idiots, especially you, Blount.

    With his 2011 season scrapped by an ACL injury, Cardinals CB Greg Toler went back to school to get his degree.
    ==========================
    Fortunately, Toler has the NFL to fall back on (in this economy)

    The 49ers are remembering WR Freddie Solomon, who died earlier this week.
    =============================
    ol Fast Freddie, R.I.P – bad week, Solomon and G.Carter passed…not to mention Whitney Houston – could we just skip President’s Day and end this month?

    Rich Campbell of the Washington Times thinks coach Mike Shanahan could make the Redskins appealing to Peyton Manning.

    Why? Has Peyton always had a aspire for working with mice, rats, or rat faces?

    While I agree with the sentiments you are expressing here in regards to the Browns history of trading up in the draft, they didn’t trade up to get Wimbley. They actually traded down one spot with Baltimore, who took Haloti Ngata. The Browns then took Wimbley and DT Babatunde Oshinowo with the 6th round pick they received for trading down.
