Will anyone make a run at McNeil?

Standard

According to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union Tribune, the San Diego Chargers tendered starting left tackle Marcus McNeil to the highest possible level.

Still is that enough to keep team from trying to sign McNeil?

The two most sought after positions on offense are quarterbacks and left tackles.

McNeil has proven to be one of the better starting left tackles in the National Football League.

That could attract a team like the Seattle Seahawks or other teams that pick in the top ten of the upcoming NFL Draft as the amount of money they have to shell out for picking there will be just about equal to what McNeil will get.

Signing a player that has the highest level tender will require a team to give up a first and a third round draft pick.

In the end with McNeil only turning 27 years old it would be well worth it.

Good night and good luck.

A breath of fresh air

Standard

Most National Football League general managers act like politicians when speaking to the media speaking while saying nothing.

Atlanta Falcons general manager Thomas Dimitroff is a different cat.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com asked Dimitroff how they were going to structure contracts this year.

Now, most general managers would reply with the typical we will treat this year like everyone else, but not Dimitroff.

“We will definitely get creative this year with our contracts,” Dimitroff replied.

About time someone actually fessed up, because after all there actually are some NFL fans that are really smart.

In the end the Atlanta Falcons should be a good team for many years to come under Dimitroff.

Will Cody keep it up?

Standard

Alabama defensive tackle Terrence Cody weighed in at the Senior Bowl at 370.

With Cody weighing in at the Combine at 354 the question is will Cody keep it up.

Its good to see that Cody has realized that he needs to lose weight.

However, the big question is was the motivation behind it was for just merely to boost his draft stock.

For if it is then Cody will stop what he is doing, which will reuly in his weight going right back up.

In the end hopefully Cody will continue with the weight loss and keep it off.
