I think John Gilmore and James Allen were signed and offers are on the table for others .It was estimated this year was going to be tough to sign first rounds , the cap levels off this year at 2% increase . Figures we would have 2 firsts the year it goes down .

Thanks Saintz08. Does it look like Stallworth, Grant, and Bentley are going to make it to camp on time. I think I Stallworth misses any time it will affect him all season.

Grant and Bentley I would assume are closer than Stallworth , with Peppers now signed the cap salaries are about in so it is probably only incentives holding them up . Grant I read somewhere was close , and I would assume is the priority of the three .Loomis knows he is under the gun on these guys and is probably doing his best . His future relys on it ...

I see Craver just signed a three year deal. I think it is big to have him in camp. I think he can make a very early contribution.

I hope Craver can step in early , I would feel a lot better with either Mathis or Weary still wearing Black and Gold .

It looks like all are signed but the top 3 , Bentleys agent is starting the bull . The same old song and dance , he should be paid by abililtiy not by draft position . Stay tuned for more fun to follow .
