It might work. Might.

Right, there's been some moving and shaking in Free Agency today, not a lot, but let's see what's been happening: -- LaDanian Tomlinson spent the day visiting the Jets and has apparently extended that visit overnight, which could suggest that a deal is being drawn up. The Jets need another RB in some form to back up Shonne Greene as Leon Washington is still recovering from a broken leg suffered last year and it's not sure when he'll return. Now this move doesn't make sense to me. I appreciate that Thomas Jones was going to be due a sizable roster bonus, but is LaDanian Tomlinson really going to come in much cheaper? They will save a few million, but the question is will Tomlinson make up for that saving with yards? He's still got a lot to give and behind that O-line he may even come back with a 1,000 yard season, but that's a big may for a team that runs the ball as much as the Jets. -- Hank Baskett spent last season with the Colts and now he's headed back to the Eagles, having accumulated the grand total of 4 catches for 28 yards in Indy. -- Veteran CB Roderick Hood has finally agreed a deal to return him to the Titans for next season. The Titans suffered early last year when much of their starting secondary went down injured before the first game. -- The Browns have finally made a move worth shouting about. A few years ago they made a run for the playoffs based largely on the play of WR Braylon Edwards and TE Kellen Winslow II. Well they lost both players, but now they're headed back in the right direction with the signing of TE Ben Watson from New England. It's a start for the Browns, but they still have a long way to go. -- San Diego have made a move to replace Antonio Cromartie at CB, who signed with the Jets, by signing former Jets CB Donald Strickland. And so the merry go round continues.... -- Larry Johnson has found a home for next season, backing up Redskins RB Clinton Portis. Not a bad move if you ask me. The biggest problem the 'Skins had last season on offense was trying to get their running game going, with Portis looking laboured at times. Maybe the introduction of Johnson will finally give them a chance to get some push on the ground. But again, that's a big maybe. -- Green Bay have finally locked up NT Ryan Pickett with a new deal. Pickett was a key component in the center of the Packers new 3-4 defense last season. Well, that's pretty much that. Thanks for dropping by and I'll see you all tomorrow. Have a great day.
