Walter Football Grades on Grubbs/Colston

Saints sign G Ben Grubbs (5 years, $36M; $16M guaranteed): A Grade Ben Grubbs is not as good as Carl Nicks, but he's a really good replacement. He's also a pretty good bargain. I feel like Grubbs could have gotten a bit more than $36 million ($16 million guaranteed).

Saints re-sign WR Marques Colston (5 years): A Grade

I'm making this grade without seeing the contract details because the amount of money the Saints plan on paying Marques Colston ultimately doesn't matter. No price is high enough to appease Drew Brees, and that's exactly what New Orleans is doing here. Considering Bountygate and the fact that he was franchised against his will, Brees must have been mulling leaving New Orleans next offseason. This is a step toward making him happy - which is really important because New Orleans would be almost as bad as the 2011 Colts without their All-Pro quarterback.

Bucs sign CB Eric Wright (5 years, $37.5M): MILLEN ON LSD-LACED KIELBASA Grade
This is the worst signing in NFL history. That sentence is not an exaggeration.

This makes me laugh:


Bucs sign CB Eric Wright (5 years, $37.5M): MILLEN ON LSD-LACED KIELBASA Grade
This is the worst signing in NFL history. That sentence is not an exaggeration.

Eric Wright is terrible. I gave him 1.5 stars in my 2012 NFL Free Agent Rankings for a reason. He's been torched numerous times per week over the past few seasons. Detroit and Cleveland fans know how bad Wright is, and the Buccaneers are about to find out.

Seriously, what the hell was Mark Dominik thinking? He couldn't have been sober when he made this transaction. I refuse to believe it. A plausible explanation is that Matt Millen snuck into his office, strangled him, shoved some LSD-laced kielbasa into the general manager's back side, and then slipped Wright's agent's number into his hand. When Dominik awoke, he was still delirious, so thought that paying $37.5 million to one of the worst cornerbacks on the market was a great idea.

Yes, that's exactly what happened. You heard it here first.

Ooops..you beat me to it Fin. lol

I suck at embedding, but here's our own Meachem toying with Mr Wright.
