NFL 2011 thread

The revenue split and rookie pay system are settled likely due to the players revealing their ace in the hole. An insurance policy that will pay each player 200K if the 2011 is canceled due to the lockout. A deal is expected soon, which will mean a frantic free agency period and maybe some shifting of preseason games, but a full 2011 season.

Memo sent out by the league to all teams to have their top execs at the Owners meeting in Atlanta Thursday because they are expecting the owners to approve the CBA. The league will then hold a seminar on the new CBA rules. Players under contract gearing up for camp this weekend.

How dare you start a new thread and not tell me, even though you saw me posting a link in the thread from last year!

Where will Randy Moss wind up this year?  Poll, anyone?

I dunno, but I really hope Chad Johnson ends up with the Patriots.

He and Belichick seem to have a thing goin' on, so it wouldn't surprise me.  I bet Brady would like to have him.

He's not really a deep threat, though, or a scary red zone threat like Plaxico.  Both are needs for the Pat's.

Needs? We don't have needs. Did you happen to see our receiving corps last season? We have tight ends who are outstanding, one of whom is a legitimate downfield threat, and another is a 6'7" human tank.

You had a great year until you couldn't stretch the Jets' defense.

Tight ends?  Dude, seriously...

I know.. I know. Is true. Is so true.

But I really don't want Plexiglass on my team.

Owners approve CBA 31-0 (Raiders abstained, lol Al Davis). Likely conditional on the players union re-certifying within the next few days. Players still need to vote (and probably meet the owners deadline for re-certification).

No, he isn't the answer.  But wouldn't you love it if Belichick stole another producer from Ryan this year?  Santonio Holmes would look awfully good catching passes from Brady.
