Jeff Hart: Tuesday Linkfest for March 13, 2012
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: March 13, 2012
The opening bell of Free Agency 2012 won’t sound until 4PM today, but already there’s big news. Randy Moss did what a certain other aging WR couldn’t; he convinced a team to sign him. Now, let’s get a jump on talking about how Moss is locker room poison (or vomit) and won’t pay off for the Niners.
Speaking of Terrell Owens, here’s a highlight from his most recent appearance with the Allen Wranglers. At least it’s football, right?
Also, maybe Owens should consider himself lucky that he landed such a plum IFL gig. It could always be worse. He could be an Arena League player that gets fired, along with all his teammates, over endless soup and salad at the Olive Garden.
Back to what really brings in the pageviews: where are we in the bidding war for a 35 year-old quarterback with a neck constructed from black market stem cells and double-stuffed Oreos? It appears the Broncos are suddenly frontrunners – at one point, they claimed it was a 95% done deal. With the recruiting prowess of John Lynch and Brandon Stokley, how could they not be? But… what happened to this guy?
It doesn’t look like Manning’s deal will be done before free agency starts, what with swaggering octogenarian madman Bud Adams forcing Tennessee to get into the hunt. I guess billboards really do still work on old people.
Here’s some nice perspective on the Manning free agency that draws the necessary parallels between what Joe Montana went through almost two decades ago. Is it a little strange that so many of the same powerbrokers that moved Montana to the Chiefs are involved in Manning’s current situation?
Lastly, in good news for most of the league, Daniel Snyder and Jerry Jones have finally opened up their notoriously deep pockets to share with 28 other teams. That extra cash is at least a silver lining for some teams waiting patiently for Manning to make up his mind.
