  1. I’m still wondering exactly what Ozzie Newsome plans on doing after releasing all those guys. He can’t simply be thinking of re-signing them all to cheaper contracts.

  2. Need to remove Brandon Stokley from the Redskins’ list on your acquisitions page. Looks like he changed his mind.

    I’m still wondering exactly what Ozzie Newsome plans on doing after releasing all those guys. He can’t simply be thinking of re-signing them all to cheaper contracts.

    why not?having a well paying job at less salary than the previous year is better than no job at all is’nt it?

  4. No shock to see the Redskins with the most releases as well as the most additions. Just another offseason in the NFL for Dan Snyder…and probably another subpar season to follow…

  5. southpaw2k, Ozzie is one of the best in the business. Most of those guys had used up their usefulness other than maybe Heap but wasn’t worth his contract. If I was a Ravens fan I would do the same thing I do with Ted Thompson, you can disagree but 95% of the time they will be right.

    Not sure if you really want Heap. He’s spent more time injured then healthy, can’t see him serviving having to play the Pats and Jets D twice a year.

  7. This is good stuff. Thank you for keeping us ‘in the loop” and up to speed.

    ravens releaseed tood heap!! perfect fit for the dolphins to replace fasano

    No, no, no…. Vikings will sign him. Run 3-TE sets with Heap, Shank, and Rudolph, and then they don’t need to worry about not having receivers.

    It all makes perfect sense!!

  9. I haven’t heard a peep about Vince Young. Obviously, VY has his issues but he’s still much better than what the Seahawks, Dolphins, Bengals, Bills, Cardinals, and Redskins have at QB. Granted, it looks like Miami and Arizona will soon have a QB upgrade in place, but that still leaves a handful of teams with a pretty glaring need.

  10. The Andrews brothers get tossed to the curb again. LMAO… Worthless D bags.

  11. Whoever updates this list can start using abbreviations for the positions anytime now.

    Why isn’t Jason Babin listed with the Eagles?

    Because this is the release tracker and he was signed by the eagles not cut.

  13. There’s a reason u haven’t heard about teams waiting on Vince Young. Coaches don’t want that poison in their locker room. If he isnt injured he’s quitting. So long Vince. Wish we had nabbed someone else in 06

  14. Wonder why people aren’t talking about Chargers WR Craig Davis. A huge first-round bust for the Chargers. He only had 259 yards and 1 TD in 3 years.

    A receiver they took and missed out on Sidney Rice, Steve Smith (NYG), and others.

  15. Thank you, PFT, these pages are a great help. I just hope they don’t collect so many comments as the days go by that they become really slow-loading.

  16. @bearsrulepackdrool: no one is allowed to talk about AJ Smith’s inability to get a team to perform for a full season,his firing a coach who went 14-2 for one who’s failed as a HC TWICE and has gotten a worse win/loss record every year,or the fact that he whiffed on most of his early picks the last few years. You’ve been warned!

  17. Ryan Diem released by Colts, they offered a restructure and he refused. Good riddance. He was a good player at one time but he hasn’t been good for several years.
