Impressive move, Jerry

Marty Booker and Chris Chandler

I knew as soon as people started throwing Marty Booker’s name around that we would end up signing him. I don’t know how much money he’ll get for the two year start, but I’m assuming it will be less money than keeping Moose and I know its about 50 times less than what the Vikings offered Berrian. And for some reason, that doesn’t make me feel any better. We added another aging wide receiver who was the best on his team last year with 50 receptions for 556 yards and 1 TD. But that was with the Miami Dolphins. And after having a decent 2006 season with 55 receptions for 747 and 6 TD’s, that wasn’t much of an improvement. It was 5 fucking touchdowns and 2.5 ypc LESS.

The good thing to come out of this is that they are making great strides to improve an ever-aging offense line and bolster our running game, since, you know, we’re supposed to run off the bus and everything. God they better have the best draft day I’ve ever seen.

Marty Booker, Mark Bradley and Rashied Davis? “There’s a timeout……on the field” will be savior next year so that people don’t see me crying in my seat. And that ticket price increase better be for draft day and not for extra security to throw my drunk ass out of every game next year.

Another Plus: They retracted the offer that was on the table for Brendon Ayanbadejo.

(Anyone think the amazing Chris Chandler in the picture above if you were confused looks like a relative of Kyle Orton?)

– Byron Leftwich, Unrestricted Free Agent, QB, Falcons

– Derrick Ward, Unrestricted Free Agent, RB, Giants

My thoughts: Lots of old QB’s. Who’s Dallas going to sign at RB (should be Barber)? I like Derrick Ward and Michael Turner. Lots of RB’s who filled in for injured stars very nicely. The Patriots have alot of signing to do. Lots of old WR’s. Who wants to play for the Raiders or Dolphins anyways? Briggs and others will get their paydays.

Comments, anyone?
