Wow. Marion Barber and Roy Williams both go to the Bears.

All they need now is to sign Leonard Davis and Flozell Adams.

Monomach 07-30-2011 09:14 PM

So I guess the Bears told Kreutz today that he can sign for 1 year, 4 million or GTFO. He chose to GTFO.

Brodeur 07-30-2011 09:19 PM

Marion Barber is awful, so whoopie.

yo123 07-30-2011 09:21 PM

Nevermind.

Still probably better than Chester Taylor.

keylime_5 07-30-2011 09:24 PM

gholston has no place in a 3-4, so he'll be better now that he's in a 4-3.....though that's not saying a lot. Better for Gholston could still be not good at all.

Monomach 07-30-2011 09:25 PM

I still think Harvey Unga or Kalil Bell are going to back up Forte this year.

Can someone make Jerry Angelo sign a good player now, please? No more ******* castoffs.

I didn't realize how bad he was there last year. Yikes.

It's still probably a wash and Chester can catch out of the backfield and block.

Gay Ork Wang 07-30-2011 09:26 PM

problem is that forte does that too but better. Chester was only better in short yardage situations

Lofa Tatupu was not present at the Seahawks afternoon walkthrough.

There were rumors earlier this offseason that he was offered in a trade for Palmer. Word came out he was asked to restructure his contract or get cut a few days ago.

Chester was horrible in short yardage. That's why he stopped getting those carries late in the season.

thats really low, did his game dropoff this year?

Monomach 07-30-2011 09:34 PM

Marion Barber's contract is 2 years, 5 million. How is he not a veteran minimum guy?

XxXdragonXxX 07-30-2011 09:34 PM

Oh, and after losing Olindo Mare, the Seahawks have re-signed the guy that spent the entire 2008 season on the Seahawks 53 man roster, and never dawned a uniform in a single regular season game (Aw, the genius that is Tim Ruskell.)

Kicker Brandon Coutu.

Brodeur 07-30-2011 09:35 PM

You'd be better off with some undrafted dude with minimal power, terrible signing.

He's been falling off and suffering through lingering injuries for the past 3 years.

He's going to compete with Wes Byrum from Auburn......an undrafted dude with minimal power.

V.I.P 07-30-2011 09:42 PM

Titans sign Barrett Ruud LOL @ the fact they give him a 1 year deal.

He may run like he's 35...but he's still only 28. A lot of people assumed he'd make more than that even.

Max amount doesnt matter. Its the guaranteed money that determines if he's overpaid.

General Zod 07-30-2011 09:47 PM

Sorry Bears fans, Id take Roy Williams over Michael Jenkins.

Yes Im still bitter.

Monomach 07-30-2011 09:51 PM

Ok, who else got cut today that no other team wants?

Bears next signing is on that list.

Noel Devine to take on that important Garrett-Wolfe-warm-the-bench-with-his-tiny-ass role?

LB Lofa Tatupu has not been released. He has not decided whether to accept #Seahawks' request to restructure.
