The Jets chose the thrifty, safe route in free agency.

There will be a competition for the Jaguars’ starting strong safety job.

The Titans will have at least four new starters in 2016 — and maybe as many as four more are still on their way.

If the Redskins sign Vernon Davis, it would be a homecoming for the veteran tight end.

The Packers are looking for production from pass rusher Datone Jones.

    Bengals rich history of drafting Buckeyes? Uh, we haven’t selected a Buckeye player higher than the 6th round since Dan Wilkinson in 1993.

    Uh
    Bray is rich
    Vernon is wealthy

    A huge difference

    Seattle trades up for Treadwell and Baldwin walks at the end of his contract.
    Go Hawks!

    Ed Reed is new to coaching, but Bills head coach Rex Ryan thinks Reed can be a head coach in five years.

    —————

    I like Ed Reed, that’s about as pre-mature as a Rex Ryan Super Bowl prediction.

    Maybe let him actually coach for a year or two.

    Matt Forte. Sorry to see you go. You’ll always be a Bear, but don’t stress too much trying to figure the GM’s move. You’ll always be a winner.

    Treadwell, Lockett and Graham at the same time? I think a lot of opponents – like my Panthers – would rather not see that.

    I think the only guy who hates the media more than Bill Belichick is Ed Reed. Not kidding when I say I think that alone would keep him from wanting to be a head coach. I could see him being a longtime DC at some point.

    And most of us think Reed could be a better head coach than Rex as soon as tomorrow. But that doesn’t mean he’d be a good hire.
