Apparently Colts were false positives, but now hearing Pats have another one.

Ooooh suuuuure.... Now that the Cowboys have the worst defense in the entire league, the NFL wants to dangle THIS bait in front of Jerry.

Screw you, Goodell. Screw you hard.

EDIT: The funniest part is the Jets are paying him 5ish million to play for the Chiefs.

How does that happen? I know it has went on for decades now, but how does a franchise come to the point where they cut a guy they owe millions to? Just so he wont be in the facility? Like, there was NO way the Jets could have gotten any value out of him? Its insane how dead money works.

I mean it usually means getting to offload part of the salary and getting a roster spot, and getting rid of someone that they feel might be a cancer.

Yea. its just crazy how they get cut, then immeditately sign with another team, and in some cases end up producing all of the sudden. Its a shitty business, but its a business.

Well the Jets are a prime example of how bad teams stay bad. Horrible management of assets, personnel, leadership and money.
Gase still head coach. If Bell goes to the Chiefs and is productive it shouldn't be that surprising.

Because it worked out so well for the texans, now everyone wants in.

Would you rather cut a guy and eat a big cap hit today, or keep him and have him affect your cap for years to come? If you're a shit team that's not close to contending it's probably better to take a large one time hit

Jets didn't have to cut him this week to not have him affect your cap for years to come. This was a get the fuck out of here right now move.

you're all fools. Can't you see what Jets are doing? It's fucking brilliant. By cutting Bell they opened up a spot to sign Antonio Brown to a long term, fully guaranteed deal when his suspension ends in 3 weeks. It's pure genius. Jets always three steps ahead of the pack.

Speaking of ahead of the pack, in the most intense division in football, I expect the eagles to lose to the ravens, giants to eek out a win in a hotly contested game, and then for the cowboys to take a day of rest against the cardinals. They could easily win, but they gotta keep the season interesting and the division neck and neck.

My prediction, cowboys continue their commanding lead of the division at 2-4.

I'd be hoping for him getting past the game without a suspension again

It would be nice if the shit stains from the mistake by the lake would rekindle the rivalry. Garrett added a little last year, and then added more by playing the "race card"....sadly hardly any fans will be there to boo his fucking ass. Hey, at least they have a QB who has won in Cleveland now as much Ben has in his career.

I still cant imagine the new Browns ever reach the Ravens (O.G. Browns) in that regard though.
