Yeah, until I get drafted I'm putting my love life on hold, or at least I'm putting something on hold.

I can lock down the WR's the same way Browner did last year. And for half the price.

Looks like lions may just keep Stephen Tulloch.

Louis Vasquez is a bit of a mystery. A few years back he was a hot commodity on the FA market. Now he is still out there. If there is some reason behind the scenes i do not know about, I do not get it.

Here is a player with a Prove it Contract written all over him.

Broncos signed OG Louis Vasquez to a four-year, $23.5 million contract.

The deal includes $13M guaranteed. The Chargers claimed that retaining Vasquez was a priority, but they never proved it with a contract offer. San Diego let the second-best guard available hit the market and he strengthened a division rival. A top-13 overall guard last season according to Pro Football Focus, the 6'5/335 Vasquez is especially effective as a pass blocker. He'll be as asset in the Broncos' quest to keep Peyton Manning upright. An impressive Vasquez stat: In 3,435 career snaps, he has been called for just one penalty.

Pro scouts around the NFL reportedly "love" free agent RG Louis Vasquez.

ESPN AFC West blogger Bill Williamson considered 25-year-old Vasquez the Chargers' "best offensive lineman" in 2012, and Pro Football Focus graded him as a top-13 overall guard. Vasquez, at 6'5/335, is a particularly effective pass blocker. He could be viewed as a better fit for left guard on the open market.

I just do not get it. Contract loaded with insensitive and bonuses ? I just do not get it.

Lions just traded a 7th to the Pats for Bostic. Tulloch will be released.
