While free agency and Peyton Manning may be at the top of the National Football League’s popularity list at the moment, it will soon take a backseat to ‘BountyGate’ and hopefully very soon.
The NFL Owners’ meetings are scheduled to take place in Florida March 25 through the 27th and it is widely speculated that Commissioner Roger Goodell would like to have his discipline handed out before then. There are numerous people and several teams that could be impacted by the conclusions that Goodell ultimately comes.
You have of course the New Orleans Saints where this whole thing began. They need to know who, if any players will be suspended and for how long. Same goes for their head coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis. The St. Louis Rams have a very vested interest in what Goodell rules because their defensive coordinator is Gregg Williams who has already fallen on his sword in admitting the whole thing was accurate.
The Washington Redskins and Buffalo Bills, where William...

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com,free agent wide receiver Mario Manningham has signed a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.
There was simply no way the Giants were going to retain Manningham. He was looking for a lot more money then they could offer. Even though I believe he didn’t get the kind of pay day he was looking for. Right now we don’t have...

Over the course of about two weeks or so, there were multiple favorites that emerged to land Peyton Manning. The Dolphins, Cardinals and 49ers were all at one point considered logical landing points for the All-Pro quarterback. The Titans got into it as well, and the Jets were even rumored to have interest. When it was all said and done, though, it was John Elway and the Denver Broncos...
After going after Peyton Manning, and then hosting Matt Flynn and Alex Smith, the Dolphins landed a quarterback on Monday with multiple reports indicated they have come to terms with former Jacksonville starter David Garrard.
He was regarded as the second best free-agent quarterback on the market. I'm not quite sure why since he hasn't proven anything, but nonetheless many people regarded him as the No. 2 guy on the market behind Peyton Manning. The Seattle Seahawks agreed that he was a top free-agent quarterback as they signed Matt Flynn to a three-year deal worth $26 million, $10 million of...

LaCanfora also mentioned that tight ends Dallas Clark and/or Jacob Tamme could end up in Denver as well.

So in one of the more strange, weird, wacky QB free agency shuffling going on right about now, the Seattle Seahawks may have struck first as the NFL waits for Peyton Manning to make up his mind already. Peter King, among many, is now reporting that Matt Flynn has agreed to a 3-year, $26 million dollar deal with the Seahawks, but only $10 million of it is guaranteed. And per...
