Excerpt: "Thursday wasn’t as hot and heavy as the previous two days of free agency were, but there was still a steady pace from the morning on up through the afternoon. Once daylight disappeared, so did the buzz.

We still had a few big-ticket signings. The Falcons reappeared to snag Steven Jackson (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/1663/Steven-Jackson) out of the Packers’ grasps when we thought Atlanta might have bowed out of the pursuit. Kansas City locked up arguably the top corner on the market in Sean Smith (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/5184/Sean-Smith), and the Chiefs now have a trio of corners that they hope can contain the Broncos’ high-powered passing attack. The Seahawks said “oh, what the hell,” and they grabbed another talented pass rusher in Michael Bennett (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/1157/Michael-Bennett) on the cheap a day after pulling the same move with Cliff Avril (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4834/Cliff-Avril). Let’s dive in even further and see what the rest of the league did.

New York Giants: The G-Men are rumored to be interested in a pair of free-agent linebackers: Rey Maualuga (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/5205/Rey-Maualuga) and Justin Durant (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4207/Justin-Durant). New York is looking to overhaul its linebacker corps after cutting Michael Boley (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/3341/Michael-Boley) and not making much of an attempt to bring back Chase Blackburn (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/3479/Chase-Blackburn). Maualuga could play the middle, or he could play the strong side. Durant has been a strong-side ‘backer for the last couple of seasons in Detroit. If either is signed, it might allow the Giants to move Mathias Kiwanuka (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/3616/Mathias-Kiwanuka) back to defensive end. Keith Rivers (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4728/Keith-Rivers) was re-signed to a one-year deal on Thursday, and he could be an option for a starting job, too. He was mainly a backup with the team last season. … The Giants signed safety Ryan Mundy (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4936/Ryan-Mundy) on Thursday. He’ll be the team’s third safety behind Antrel Rolle (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/3149/Antrel-Rolle) andStevie Brown (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/6006/Stevie-Brown), filling Kenny Phillips (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4597/Kenny-Phillips)’ old role. … New York has approached right tackle David Diehl (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/940/David-Diehl) about a pay cut. He’ll have to slash his $4.475 million salary somehow if he wants to return. … Free agent tight end Dustin Keller (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4721/Dustin-Keller)’s agent could reach out the Giants in the coming days. New York likely isn’t ready to hand the starting job over to Adrien Robinson (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/7579/Adrien-Robinson), so there could be a match with Keller. He’d be a massive downgrade on Martellus Bennett (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/NFL/4639/Martellus-Bennett), though." Read more...

I don't want Mual at all. He sucks on pass coverage.

I Hate T.O.
