So, my prediction was wrong, and Peyton Hillis is now contractually obligated to get his legs broken this year. The NFL lockout is a distant memory and the new NFL-NFLPA collective bargaining agreement is in place for the next ten years of coincidental injuries or production drop-offs related to being on a game’s cover.
ESPN is your place to go for early reveals at some team and player ratings. Two teams are being released every day with a majority of the AFC already posted. Thanks to the lockout and the abbreviated free agency period, you’re going to need a roster update on day one.
On my Cleveland Browns alone, there’s a rating for one player whose season (sorry, Reggie Hodges) has already ended with a blown out achilles. According to Adam Schefter, he’s one of ten players in the NFL who have already lost their season due to an injured achilles. Then you have lost free agents, (Abram Elam – OVR: 80), roster cuts (Jake Dilhomme – OVR: 73), roster additions (John Greco – OVR: Not Yet Revealed, but likely in the high 60′s to low 70′s), and currently unsigned talents (Matt Roth – OVR: 86).
By the way, Mike Holmgren, I know it’s steep but how about you pay Matt Roth his $3 million asking price. Unhappy about the switch to 4-3 or not, he has shown himself to be a solid linebacker and has some really decent virtual stats for a no-namer. You have the cap room.
