Free Agency Craziness!

Ladies and gentlemen, its 1:41 p.m Central time, and already crazy things have gone down, things that very much affect the Texans. All o' that after the break.

Haynesworth, the fat bastard, is gone from the AFC South!!! In all of his general managing glory, Dan Snyder of the Redskins signed The Face Stomper to a 7 year, $100 million dollar deal, with $41 million guaranteed. I am happy. The Skins also signed DeAngelo Hall for $54 million... why?

The Patriots sign Fred Taylor. Because an old, injury prone back is exactly what they need to get back to the big game.

Sorry, Chris. Bart Scott agrees to sign with the Jets, following Rex Ryan to New York. The deal is somewhere around $8 million a year, $1 million a year more than what the Ravens offered him.

The Ravens also sign CB Dominique Foxworth to a multiyear deal worth about $6.8 million a year.

The Philadelphia Eagles signed the older brother of current right guard Shawn Andrews, Stacy Andrews, from the Cincinnati Bengals. The terms are not available at the moment. I think it would be awesome to play next to my brother at the pro level. If I had a brother.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers acquire Browns TE Kellen Winslow for an undisclosed amount of draft picks.

The Dolphins sign Gibril Wilson to a 5 year, $27.5 million dollar deal to go along with the 20 million dollar deal they just inked their other starting safety, Yeremiah Bell. It looks like they have given up on former first round pick Jason Allen.

KC acquires Mike Vrabel from the Pats for an undisclosed number of draft picks. You now know the Pats are looking for a 3-4 OLB, as KC tries to acquire pieces to fit its new 3-4. I can't find the link, but it was just reported on

Cardinals tender Gabe Watson. I guess our NT is coming via draft (PLEASE!)

Last, but definitely not least, the Colts sadly, sadly, sadly resign C Jeff Saturday to a 3 year deal with no disclosed cash at the moment.


I will keep this post updated with more stuff every 12 hours or so. Feel free to post updates if you catch 'em.
