    Bit of a big trade.

    As part of the deal, the Cardinals sent the second of their sixth-round picks (176th overall) to the Raiders in exchange for Oakland's seventh-round pick (219th overall). In addition, the Raiders will receive a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2014 draft if Palmer starts 13 games for Arizona in 2013, a league source told ESPN.

    And before you get stressed worrying that this will adversely impact the Titans draft and we might lose out on someone like Chance Warmack as a result let me make a couple points:
    1. We are not drafting Chance Warmack at 10 anyway so do not stress there
    2. While the Cards are no longer likely to draft a QB ahead of us the Raiders are now more likely to draft a QB ahead of us

    One of the worse investments I have seen. Bengals are licking their chops at what they got in exchange for Carson.

    Yeah, it would have made me a little angry if we were still in the run for Chance, but we are not, therefore it doesn't matter to us.

    Kinda old news. I think most of us just stopped posting about FA moves.

    Nnamdi also signed with the Niners today for a 1 year/$3mil deal, with no guaranteed money.

    Hell, if that's all it would've taken to get him, I would've offered him a 2 year/$10mil to come join the Titans if I knew he'd be that cheap. I feel like the Niners are cheating on all these deals. Boldin for a 6th round pick, Nnamdi for $3mil, Kaepernick under rookie contract getting paid nothing, etc.

    NFC West is gonna be sick. As much as it sucks that we have to play that division this year, it'll be nice to see the two best teams in the league (Niners and Seahawks) at LP Field... hope we can at least compete.

    Same goes for Seahawks... Michael Bennett 1 year/$5mil, Cliff Avril 2 year/$15mil. Those two were expected to get big deals.

    Seahawks are my #2 team because of Wilson. I was really pissed when they lost to the Falcons... that was an epic comeback, and I said before that drive "the legend of Russell Wilson begins here" because I knew he'd lead them down the field for the go-ahead TD, and I expected them to win it all.

    They would've beaten the Niners in the NFC Championship IMO... would've been hard to get by the refs in the Super Bowl though.

    Wilson will be a top 3 QB in three years IMO.

    Seattle is my #2 because of Pete Carroll. Always thought he never got a fair shot in the NFL. Happy to see he made it back.

    I think we are going to be on NFL Network's State of the Franchise in about 9 mins. It came on earlier at 7PM, but I wasn't able to catch it. I think they are about to replay it.

    But they just got Flynn. The only team that might take a QB now are BUF and an outside shot with JAX.

    Do not underestimate either of those teams to reach for a a QB, same with the Raiders.
