    Forgot that the saints had the HOF game, quite an embarrassing set of circumstances for the league there.

    Some more embarrassing circumstances for the NFL could be the outcome of the CapGate farce (redskins/cowboys).

    Haven't seen any news on that in awhile, are they in serious danger of losing that case?

    Yeah it's gone a bit quiet on that front. It's in the legal stages. I can't see the NFL winning that case. I'm sure there'll be a billion PFT articles about it soon tho.

    I sure as hell hope they lose that. Would like our 10mil back.

    Do OTAs start soon?I heard they were in the next couple of weeks?

    July, so far away. Mind you, I turn 30 in July, so maybe it is best if stays in the long awaited future :p

    I would assume most of the other teams have a similar time frame for getting their rookies into their facilities.

    I'm pretty sure that under the new CBA, OTAs are restricted and will therefore be held in June, with training camp in late July.

    If anyone can find an OTA schedule it would be appreciated.

    Alright, so mini camps start tomorrow and OTAs begin in about two and half weeks. Good that we'll start getting some news in.

    Tho only a handful have been announced, I guess rookie mini-camps will happen around that May 10-ish period, then OTAs start around May 20 onwards, lasting till mid June, then Training Camp starts mid July.

    Looks like Kellen Moore is the firm #3 QB in Detroit, with a chance to compete to be the backup:

    Bengals signing Vontaze Burfict as an UDFA. :eek: Wouldn't touch that walking powder keg at all. So many off-field issues.

    Surely the Bengals will come to their senses and cut him in the first set of roster cuts.

    And once you move past his off-field issues you have to start dealing with his selfish on field and locker room presence.

    I was referring to Diriggy Bird saying that Kellen Moore signed with Detroit to be Staffords backup, and pointing out that Detroit's HC has said he's not the backup, but the #3 QB for now.

    It's the bengals, They sign every badass player coming out of college.


    Doesn't matter if its 1st rounders or ufas, you can rest assure that if you have serious red flags, the bengals at the very least will look at you.

    Raiders signed leinart today. Damn. I really hope Pryor beats out leinart, the coaches persevere with him etc.
