    He also let Dean Lowry get paid, and discover Tyler Lancaster.

    Current Packers are stuffed with black players

    On ESPN morning show "Get UP" the guest seems to think that Cam Newton would be going to Pats because of his mobility and his contract. I know this past preseason the Pats were asking about Newton.

    One thing that must be giving teams pause is Newton's health. If Newton was past his injury issues then why did the Panthers sign Bridgewater? Do they have insider knowledge about Newton's health having a bad prognosis?

    His mobility is gone - he’s a one trick pony now and that trick is his mediocre ability as a pocket qb.


    I did see the Patriots signed Dan Vitale after the Packers misused him last year.

    Would be great to see the Patriots be shrewd enough to use Vitale as an offensive weapon, similar to the way the 49ers use Kyle Juszczyk.

    Andrew Sendejo signed with the Browns, likely as a backup now that he's 33.

    The direction that the Patriots have been going recently, this would be an entirely fitting acquisition.

    More bad news for Patriot fans, they are also considering Jameis Winston as a possible replacement for Brady.

    Scam or Crablegs to New England would be amusing. Boston fans have had their run, they'll be okay.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they drafted Hurts. I have been hearing about comparisons behind Hurts and Tebow - McDaniels drafted Tebow in Denver/Belichek is a saban/alabama fan boy. Hurts will be protected by his skin color from criticism unlike Tebow.

    No doubt about it. Hurts will be given every chance to succeed. Ridiculous people still try and compare plight of Black QBs to that of the White RB. Literally no one gives a **** about the plight of the White RB or CB. No one besides us makes noise about it, while Black QBs are constantly propped up by the system. And White DBs are called "unicorns" by a racist retired Afflete.

    Truthteller - as always a top notch post my friend! I wish I had has much historical knowledge of the game as you do and the ability to succinctly tear apart the caste system in a few paragraphs. I meant to respond earlier but just wanted to recognize your posts especially since free agency started.

    Speaking of free agency - Clowney overvaluing himself and remaining a FA is pretty fun. Another narcissistic afflete that lacks any sort of self-awareness is former Jets WR Robby Anderson. He was spouting about that he would not give the Jets a "home town discount" and was expecting to earn between 12-15 million a year. This is all for a receiver who has never eclipsed 1000 yards in a season. It is gratifying seeing morons like these overestimate their worth only to be met with a thud when free agency hits. I hope the Jets do not re-sign him - he's a team cancer and Darnold doesn't need that.

    I'm guessing that Jameis Winston ends up in New England. New England has a big need there and Winston has a lot of starting experience.

    I wouldn't sign this guy because of the serious off the field stuff but the DWFs don't care so the teams don't care.

    I've been reading on the internet and apparently the Patriots aren't interested in Winston. Some of the common speculation has Dalton to New England and Winston to the Steelers.

    The Bears signed a couple of affletic scrubs - 2016 1st round bust Artie Burns and Jordan Lucas who is not a good safety but since he is black gets preferential treatment and an opportunity for playing time.

    Lucas had little playing time but when he did play he wasn't very good. PFF gave him a 32.2 score which is beyond bad in their rating system.

    Winston definitely not good enough for the patriots , and how Winston kept his starting spot for the last 2 seasons remains a mystery to me ....Fitzpatrick , I am sure is very happy he ended up in Miami ( I’ve getting his chance to start again ) ...I can imagine dalton being at the patriots ...with belechek as his coach I reckon dalton has the talent to flourish .....Winston at best a solid backup ..

    I do reckon olzewski will get decent minutes this season at the patriots ...and possibly as a corner back . Bigger stronger ....he was always going to be fast enough ..

    Patriots sign Brian Hoyer. I guess it’s good to have a veteran in the mix but I can’t imagine that this is it for them at the position.

    The last few days have just been a sea of mediocre or downright terrible black players signing new deals. It’s the Caste system in action year after year. Just keep recycling the same talentless bums while Whites are left to pick up the scraps or never even given a shot at all. The NFL is really an elaborate welfare program for blacks masquerading as a legitimate profession sports league.

    I hope they draft Jordan Love. The hype on him has cooled down quite a bit (I'm no longer seeing him as a top 10 pick on most mock drafts) and what better way to see the end of a dynasty than being spearheaded by a quotaback. He'll be the face of failure for a rebuilding team.
