  1. I’m a football junkie … I admit it … with college ball as well as the NFL.

    I’ve seen most of these guys play and just say there is some serious talent within those signings. Time will tell if it’s enough.

    It’s reading like the 8th round of the draft …. some excellent potential joining the fray … nothing wrong with that.

  2. Hoping some of these offensive linemen work out…give Josh Rosen 3 seconds and he can be a franchise quarterback.
