Sunday Recap of Transactions

Posted by Brad On July – 31 – 2011

The entire day for me was wrapped up at Cleveland Browns training camp and away from the computer and cell phone.  It was nice to catch up with some old faces in the Browns organization but the day away was busy in the NFL world.  Here’s a list of what we missed:

The Washington Redskins and T Jamaal Brown agreed to a 5-year contract.

Deuce Lutui showed up to his Cincinnati Bengal physical overweight and was promptly sent packing back to Arizona.  Lutui’s weight has been an issue in the past as he has topped the scales at near 400 lbs in the past.

Tim Hightower was sent to the Washington Redskins for a conditional pick and Vonnie Holliday.  Hightower could start in Washington and appears to be a good fit in Shanahan’s running game.

John Kuhn signed a 3-year deal to stay with the Packers.  Packer fans will be happy as he’s a favorite of the Pack.

Fresh off an assault charge Cedric Benson re-signed with the Cincinnati Bengals.

Justin Blalock agreed to a 6-year deal to stay with the Atlanta Falcons

The Detroit Lions were able to retain the services of Chris Houston on a 2-year deal.

The Chicago Bears will not be able to retain Olin Kreutz so they signed C Chris Spencer to a 2-year deal.

Nick Barnett agreed to a 3-year, $12 million deal, $6 million guaranteed with the Buffalo Bills.  He will replace Paul Posluszny at MLB who was lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars earlier in free agency.

Daniel Graham will join the Tennessee Titans on a 3-year deal.

Aaron Rodgers made a public plea for the Packers to keep James Jones and today they listened.  Jones agreed to a 3-year deal to stay with the Packers.

Vonta Leach and the Baltimore Ravens agreed to 3-year, $11 million deal with $6 million guaranteed.

The New Orleans Saints agreed to a 1-year deal with CB Fabian Washington

Bills Sign Brad Smith to 4-year, $15 million Deal

Posted by Brad On July – 28 – 2011

The Buffalo Bills have signed WR/KR Brad Smith to a 4-year, $15 million deal.

Brad Smith is a versatile guy that can return kicks, play in the slot, and play wildcat QB.  This is a solid signing for Chan Gailey and the Bills.  In his career, he has posted 64 catches, 557 yards, and 2 TD’s.  Add to that 767 yards rushing and 2 rushing TD’s.

Drayton Florence Staying Put

Posted by Brad On July – 27 – 2011

"Drayton Florence stays in Buffalo"The Buffalo Bills defense took a major step backwards yesterday with Paul Posluszny signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars.  They definitely couldn’t afford to also lose CB Drayton Florence.

Today they ensured they wouldn’t lose Florence.  He agreed to a three-year $15 million contract.  Florence is a key piece to the Bills defense and with the loss of Posluszny and potentially losing SS Donte Whitner the Bills needed to ink Florence.

Florence has 391 tackles and 14 INT’s in his eight-year career.  The last two of which have been spent in a Buffalo Bills uniform.  Florence was solid last season with 58 tackles and 3 INT’s.
