    They haven't really done anything extraordinary yet. Let go of Bowe, but added Maclin. A slight improvement.

    Why is Maclin better? Well he's hitting his prime right now, Bowe is past it.

    No, why are Chiefs not improving their team substantially?

    Because they have no money to spend. They're at the allowed limit, less than a million in cap space.

    They'll look to draft players instead of signing free agents.

    These NFL transfer and draft rules are confusing.

    Simply put, you are only allowed to use a limited amount of money per year. And all young players must enter the league via a draft.

    Chiefs have already spent the allotted allowance, they'll now look towards young guns from college football to improve their team.

    how did your teams do in the draft Fawad WaQaReD! Don Corleone SwingNSeam Inswinger iZeeshan

    I love what the jets did. Couldn't turn down leornard williams. Got a good receiver in devin smith. I like petty as a qb, although he is a project and getting zac stacy for a 7th round pick was another great move.

    Nothing too flashy at first look besides Malcom Brown (who should be able to replace Wilfork), but Pats did add a lot of depth in the trenches. There's always an element of surprise with BB at the helm. Getting a half blind linebacker (yup, Matt Wells is legally blind in one eye) and a Navy long snapper in 5th round was entertaining to say the least. Only big hole left in the roster is at cornerback.

    As for Jets, I think they did very well with their selections. Best D line in the league with Leonard in the mix. Bryce Petty was an interesting choice as well, I wonder if NY media/fans will let him develop at a natural pace and not rush to start him too soon. As for Stacy, I think he's too similar to the guys on the roster already (Ridley, Powell, Ivory). I don't expect Jets to take all four into the season.

    that is very interesting indeed. I had no idea about matt wells. I see where you're coming from on our RB situation, but I still have my doubts over ridley after his injury last year so I guess we have some depth there.

    Didn't really follow the draft that well nor do I know the roster status of the Colts that well. I know we picked up a receiver in the first round, so let's see how that plays out since Reggie Wayne is no longer on the roster.

    Really happy with how the first 3 picks went. Filled a lot of needs without reaching in any of the rounds. O-line, D-line, and the secondary has been a major concern for us, and now we have 3 potential starters.

    I got absolutely no idea :lol

    You tell me. How did Kansas City Chiefs do?

    Actually I think I'll rather support the 49ers if I decide to choose a team. Only like the legend Jamaal Charles from KC.

    I have no idea. Too many teams and rounds to keep track of :lol

    Just looking online: niners traded the chargers their 15th pick for the 17th pick, a 4th round pick, and a future 5th round pick. They drafted the same player they would have drafted at 15, arik armstead (defensive end). Here's a list of the players they drafted and some background on them.

    I'm furious at that. Even their million dollar investigation couldn't give them the smoking gun they looked for, for four freaking months. He would've gotten less suspension had he beat his wife. Absolute farce. This isn't the end though, Brady and Kraft will fight it all to the bitter end.

    This whole thing has been blown up for no reason. The only interesting part in the text messages is that it seemed like they definitely did it for the ravens game, but I honestly don't see how brady could be suspended for 4 games.

    Great couple of days of drama. Free Agency is delivering so far!

    It seems to have been settled down a bit. Still some interesting free agents in the market, like Fitzpatrick, RG3, Foster, Alfred Morris, James Jones, etc..
