Kick the tires? I'll kick your a**!!
-- The Washington Redskins have apparently made contact with the agent of Flozell Adams. It's a case of the over used proverbial phrase "kicking the tires" (which I hate with the kind of passion that divisional rivals have for each other). And it makes a lot of sense. The Redskins have probably had the single finest off season period out of all 32 teams and the signing of Adams would be the icing on the cake. Why? Other than solving a glaring need, it completely changes the way they look at their first round pick (4th overall). Now you can go out and pick whoever takes your fancy, with most of your needs already solved. But probably the more likely scenario is for you to trade down. Now you have the liberty of taking a slightly lower ranked OT such as Charles Brown who you can start on the right side before moving over a year or two down the line. Or, you can fill what would be the Redskins sole remaining glaring need at WR. If given the opportunity, expect the Redskins to pull the trigger on this one. -- The New Orleans Saints have picked up former Bears DE Alex Brown on a two year deal reportedly worth $6 million. The Saints have lost some important free agents already and could still lose Darren Sharper, so welcoming Brown makes a nice change. Brown will help generate pressure up front and create mistakes that can be capitalised on by the Saints superb corner tandem of Jabari Greer and Tracey Porter. -- Jason Taylor, LB for the Dolphins, may be about to put his hatred for the New York Jets behind him... by joining them. Taylor had a meeting with the Jets Wednesday as Jets HC Rex Ryan looks for extra pieces that will push his defense over the edge this coming season. Which is scary, to think that the Jets might actually get better on D, bearing in mind how good they were already last year. Have a great day everyone.
