So they replaced Manumaleuna with Spaeth?

That's a downgrade IMO.

Bears fans, what happened with Manumaleuna? Sucked? Injured?

When is the last time the Steelers have signed a major free agent from another team? Has it ever happened?

James Farrior from the Jets back in 01 I think?

Duce Staley from the Eagles, Jeff Hartings from the Lions

That's pretty much it.

and Jovan ************* Haye.

I hate Mike Reinfeldt, I know he drafted Chris Johnson but I hate him.

biggest one i can think of was jeff hartings, i guess james farrior counts too.

from a division team i can only think of bums though

EDIT: staley, duh...he was heroic here for a year but nothing too great overall

Raiderz4Life 07-28-2011 01:51 PM

Jerome Bettis....was a trade...does that count??

James Farrior was still young when they got him but he wasn't all that great with the Jets

I don't know if this was posted yet...

Must have dropped out. I wonder if the Rams will ever sign a WR, either. I got excited when I heard they were interested in Rice, but we all saw what happened there.

I think Randy Moss is destined for St. Louis. I've had him to the Jets all along, but I keep personalities pretty close to the team adamantly shooting it down. They definitely need to add at RB aswell and Snelling as mentioned is a good target, aswell as Ronnie Brown and Cadillac which is pure speculation on my part.

Raiderz4Life 07-28-2011 01:54 PM

220 mil guaranteed? is that possible??? lol

Both, actually. Knee iirc. 285 lb 3rd tackle was a waste.

Who knew?

That is a lot of money he is getting A-Rod money. He must be the chosen one.

HeavyLeggedWaistBender 07-28-2011 01:56 PM

Don't spend it all in one place, Kev.

K Train 07-28-2011 01:57 PM

220 million, i bet kolb brought his own pen lol

tjsunstein 07-28-2011 01:57 PM

If James Jones goes to Minnesota, I will be forced to hate him. I tried to like him time and time again with the potential he's flashed but he's dropped more balls than a middle school classroom.

Brodeur 07-28-2011 01:57 PM

How is that $220 million spread out?

He gets a $1 bill every second until 220 million seconds pass.
