    Good for him. He deserves to be a starter. Hopefully they get a trustworthy QB, and who knows they might can do something.

    Nice signing by the Falcons, I think Turner and Norwood will be a good tandem for years to come.

    I think the Falcons have upgraded wayyy more than the Dolphins. I think they've made themselves flexible in the draft. I feel if Redman manages the game correctly for them next year, they could be one of those teams that sneaks in.

    Redman would be a Good option, But If the falcons draft matt ryan then we will never know. I personally like the experienced Vet Over the rookie anyway.

    I think they'll build in the trenches in the draft, maybe Sedrick Ellis Mike Smith loves DT's they took Henderson and Stroud back to back years in Jacksonville

    That's one less spot in the top five for McFadden to go to, though with his off the field issues, I didn't expect Atlanta to be a serious contender for him anyways.

    Just what I was thinking, Nick. I very much agree with 39, in that they'll take the best lineman available. I'm not sure what kind of offensive line game that they will want to run(they switched between a power game to a zone scheme under Petrino), so they may be in the market for Jake Long which is why I say best lineman available.

    As for this signing, it gives us the ballpark we're looking at for Jax when we look to resign him. I'd expect a bit more like a 6 year, 38 million with about 17-18 million guaranteed.

    Warrick's not Dunn i could see him in a Bucs or Texans uni. A good question us how do you think his deal will affect SJ's deal, you have to belive SJ will get and deserves more
