Saturday morning one-liners

Since we’ve been covering pretty much every piece of NFL news during the initial days of free agency, our daily one-liners focus on making sure you didn’t miss anything in the still-hectic stream of developments.

Plus, it’s easier this way.

Plus, we’re essentially sending you back to other PFT links.  Which is nice.

Patriots WR Danny Amendola’s pay will hinge on his ability to play.

The Jets’ training table budget will increase after the addition of DT Antonio Garay and former Ben Roethlisberger sausage party attendee OL Willie Colon.

The Dolphins’ free-agency spree could continue with CB Brent Grimes, and it did with WR Brandon Gibson and TE Dustin Keller.

The Bills no longer employ WR Donald Jones, but they’ll still see him twice per year.

Steelers WR Emmannuel Sanders has signed an offer sheet with the Patriots, unless he hasn’t.

Browns defensive coordinator Ray Horton is happy with the team’s free-agency haul.

The Ravens keep rounding up NFC East castoffs.  (Since the NFC East is a powerhouse division right now.)

Bengals DE Michael Johnson signed his franchise tender before the Bengals realized they could sign two or three veterans for what they’ll be paying him in 2013.

The Jaguars emerged from their free-agency slumber to add DT Roy Miller and DB Alan Ball, and RB Justin Forsett.  (Now all they need is T.J. Houshmandzadeh.)

For the Colts, it’s LaRon Landry in — and Tom Zbikowski out.

S Ed Reed left Houston, but he’s still talking to the Texans.

Packers LB Brad Jones is visiting the Titans.

The Broncos and DE Elvis Dumervil had a deal, then they didn’t, and the team blames Dumervil’s agent, and a nation of adolescents was introduced to the term “fax machine.”

The Chargers have decided to extend their relationship with RB Ronnie Brown, and to start a new one with former Pats RB Danny Woodhead.

The Chiefs added OL Geoff Schwartz, who may or may not be teaching bad words to his teammates.

The only football player that can truly survive the Black Hole is a Roach.

New Eagles S Kenny Phillips says he’ll learn to hate the Giants.

The Giants are eyeballing former Cowboys LB Dan Connor and WR Louis Murphy.

The cap hit that the Cowboys would take from cutting OT Doug Free is saving his job, for now.

Yes, the Redskins were interested in RB Reggie Bush.

New Vikings WR Greg Jennings insists he’s not old (which usually is the first sign that someone is).

The Lions are bringing back S Louis Delmas.

The Bears brought back CB Zack Bowman and DT Nate Collins.

Greg Jennings isn’t the only pass-catcher the Packers have lost.

The Panthers don’t have much cap space to sign new players, but visits don’t cost a dime.

Falcons TE Tony Gonzalez is 95-percent sure he won’t be playing the second season of his new two-year contract.

The Saints are still in play for LB Victor Butler, who left Pittsburgh without a contract.

The Buccaneers shipped WR Arrelious Benn, a second-rounder in 2010, to the Eagles, for pretty much nothing.

Seahawks DE Michael Bennett didn’t give his former team a chance to match his one-year, $5 million deal.

49ers LB Aldon Smith now has another reason for his late-season disappearing act.

Jake Long left St. Louis without signing a deal with the Rams.

The Cardinals raided the AFC West by signing Chargers CB Antoine Cason and Raiders DL Matt Shaughnessy.  (Given the quality of the Seahawks and 49ers right now, the Cardinals may want to also relocate to that division.)

    There isn’t a single Redskins story in the list. How useless.

    hey mike, dumervil to the pats???????????? makes good sense….

    Fix that Fedex Field.
    Maybe then Florio will post news on that non-relevant team.
    Best 5 running backs: Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Doug Martin, Ray Rice, & Jamal Charles…& in that same order.

    @logicalvoice

    Key words: Yes, the Redskins were interested in signing Reggie Bush

    I’ve been doing a little research and found that my Raiders actually made some solid pick ups with Roach, Maiava, and Sims. But all the cuts and free agents they let go is hard to swallow

    The guy in the photo looks like he can’t decide whether he wants to laugh or be pissed while he smashes his printer.

    I don’t know why that makes me laugh so hard.

    I don’t know where you guys find these pictures to go with some of the stories, but they are hilarious!

    After spending a day with Bob McNair and Kubiak, Ed Reed is running away from the joke of the franchise that the texans are….

    Bulls on charade

  9. neva4get5 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:00 AM

    GenXjay , what is LeSean McCoy….Chop meat?

  10. niner650 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:10 AM

    In other news, water is wet

  11. GenXJay says: Mar 16, 2013 11:19 AM

    McCoy=#6

  12. billsfan1 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:23 AM

    SPiller is top 10

  13. gromgrimfist says: Mar 16, 2013 11:29 AM

    @GenXJay

    no offence but either you are a bucs fan or an idiot to put Martin ahead of McCoy

  14. Iknoweverything says: Mar 16, 2013 11:30 AM

    Ben Roethlisberger had a sausage party??????

    Was it held in a bar bathroom?

  15. neva4get5 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:46 AM

    Doug Martin will be good…..just not yet though!

  16. GenXJay says: Mar 16, 2013 11:48 AM

    I’m an “idiot” & not a buc’s fan. McCoy #6.
    It’s easy to forget the “dream team” & their stellar built roster from yesteryear. Sorry McCoy, you can serve as All Days back up next year.

  17. terraj35 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:49 AM

    Arrelious Benn has never recovered from his knee injury. They moved up a round and gained a conditional pick for a guy they were about to release. I’d say they made something from nothing.

  18. neva4get5 says: Mar 16, 2013 11:50 AM

    Poor Benjamin, I hope Tomlin & Haley can catch b/c that’s all he might have to throw to this year !! Antonio meet the double team….double team, this is Antonio Brown!

    Riiiight. Because we know how much BB likes to pay established, quality veterans. Yup, that’s his M.O. That and loyalty are the hallmarks of a BB/Kraft team.

    I agree that fed ex field is terrible. Rg3, AP, Chris Clemons can vouch for that.

    I disagree with that top 5, though. Wheres beast mode? If I recall, he had the most rush yards behind all day and Alfred Morris (whom also missed your ”list”) this season. Martin had a good year, but I dont agree hes better than Shady, or frank for that matter.

  22. lynchmobb12 says: Mar 16, 2013 12:37 PM

    *frank gore

  23. neva4get5 says: Mar 16, 2013 12:53 PM

    I believed they actually saved him from the black hole of “RUN SCHIANO RUN”…Who wants to watch V-Jax catch all the passes.

  24. bartlettruss says: Mar 16, 2013 1:07 PM

    Why fix FedEx Field? No football’s being played there…

  25. GenXJay says: Mar 16, 2013 1:17 PM

    Gore=5 1/2.
    (this is not fantasy football this for real.)
    & Morris is an 1year wonder. He’ll be injured next season due to Dan Snyder’s irresponsible ability to cough up funds for grass seed & the head coach’s pride to pill him out of the game.
