I have pretty high hopes for Murphy, Reid, and Adam Johnson. I think Johnson is the replacement at LS and can actually contribute at TE. He catches everything thrown to him.

Every team signs these types of FA as camp fodder and to send to Europe. Not a big deal really.

I don't think the min is based on postion, that comes in with their negotiations,

but I am not an expert on this topic, just throwing out my 2cents.

They won't get paid much of anything unless they make the team. They're paid a per diem for days they're in camp. Their salary is void if they don't make the 53 man roster.

Can anyone shed some light on why Nick Reid hasnt materialized into a freakin stud yet? Hopefully that isnt a dumb question with an obvious answer.......but I remember watching that kid play roughly 3 games at Kansas, and he was all over the field ALL THE TIME.

Ohio State had AJ Hawk at the time, and I thought they were both pretty comparable.......and AJ had a great rookie year at GB with not much help.

My understanding is that while Reid is pretty smart, his speed was pretty limited to the college game. I seem to remember Edwards saying last year that he was pretty slow, but he's smart, so that will help him. It just means that he will have a harder time getting to the field.

Why is it that the Skittles Corp. packages their skittles with 13 each...of the strawberry, orange, lemon, and grape. But with the lime, theres only 8????


Over the last month, The three packages I have bought each had the same amount per color.
