Harvin a No-Show

3

Percy Harvin missed his first day of work, reportedly due to "severe dehydration". What the news reports won't say is obvious to the casual observer. He partied so hard after being drafted, that he couldn't even survive the flight from his home in Florida to Minnesota. Great pick Vikes! The destruction and distraction has only just begun.

Should the Hawks throw out the trade value chart?

Everyone agrees that top pick salaries are out of whack, and owning a top pick in the draft is more a hindrance than help. Case in point, if Detroit had offered Denver the #1 pick for Cutler,...

I am sold on Eugene Monroe as the best choice at #4, if he is available. From NFLDraftScout. "Compares To: WALTER JONES, Seattle -- Both players are blessed with excellent athleticism and agility, along with the quick feet to mirror speedy edge rushers. Monroe is a solid run blocker, plays on his feet with very good balance and has excellent body control. He has the strength to gain position when working in-line and creates and widens rush lanes. He is capable of staying on his feet and sustaining blocks, using his hand strength well to lock on and control his man. He competes until the whistle and plays with good aggression. His field vision and awareness are evident by his ability to pick up line games and blitzes. His body control lets him readjust and deliver crunching blocks in the second level. With his fluid body flexibility, he has no problem sinking his hips and anchoring to protect the pocket. By remaining healthy as a senior, he has the athletic ability and pedigree to be the first offensive lineman taken in the 2009 NFL Draft."

Florida WR Percy Harvin's stock is reportedly slipping to the point where he's no longer considered a likely first-round pick. In a Pro Football Weekly poll among NFL execs, Harvin was unanimously fingered as the riskiest pick due to "coachability, a posse of hangers-on, his lack of respect for authority and drug usage." Neither Harvin nor his agent have denied a recent report that he tested positive for marijuana at the Combine.

The End of the Collective Bargaining Agreement

As I understand it, the NFL Owners opted out of the CBA last May, which means if a new agreement is not reached by March 2010, the 2010 season will play out as an uncapped year.  Roger Goodell has...

Chad Reuter and Rob Rang at NFL Draft Scout both have updated their mock draft for today and agree on the first 4 selections going in order, Stafford, J. Smith, Curry and Monroe (to Seattle). They also both have Crabtree going to Cincy at 6. Personally, I think this is good in that maybe we can trade down with Oakland or Jacksonville who may both covet Crabtree. But my real objective here is to pose a question. Suppose they are both wrong and Crabtree goes 1-3, and our choice at 4 includes Curry. Do we pass on him because we are already loaded at linebacker, or do we take the best player available, Curry?

Question about salary cap

Is it accurate to say that only the 53 man roster counts toward salary cap? Not the practice squad? What about when a player is on IR? Does that free up $ for the team to sign replacements?
