Rams say no to Tebow

You should probably sit down for this, although I have no idea why you were standing: there’s still no team interested in a quarterback who can’t throw, and therefore he can’t be a quarterback. Also, there’s still no team interested in a player who will be released in a matter of days.

You know how I know that we’ve reached the point in free agency where it’s probably just about time to forget about free agency? Brandon Jacobs. That’s all. Just Brandon Jacobs.

Sure, there are still notable veterans still lingering on the open market. Charles Woodson will eventually be given a warm, comforting home, because in today’s NFL when passing is what all the cool teams are doing, guys who can defend passes are pretty valuable regardless of their age. For a similar reason, Dwight Freeney and John Abraham will be employed eventually too, because there’s a level of pain they can still bring off the edges to pressure the guys who throw passes, though it’s more of a minor back pain now instead of a raging headache.

As I see it, the central problem with money is that I never have enough of it. That may partly be because I eat too many burritos, instead of wisely conserving cash with a simple and humble homemade ham and cheese sandwich selection for lunchtime consumption (#bloglife).

The Giants need money too, just for much different consumption reasons. They need wins, and to get wins, they need good players. Preferably, great players, and one of the great players they’d like to purchase while in turn also purchasing wins is already on their roster.

And that’s where the simplistic ends, and complicated begins.

asomugha-49ers2

Being wanted must be nice. Anthony Adams adores you, Nnamdi Asomugha.

Asomugha was jettisoned by the Eagles, because it turns out that giving a cornerback Darrelle Revis money (or at least Darrelle Revis’ definition of Darrelle Revis money) isn’t ideal when at times — most times, even — he’s playing like, I dunno, Stanford Routt. But there are still many other times when Asomugha is sort of OK, and even some others when he’s still quite good. Not great or excellent, but good.

Both the 49ers and Saints could use some more good in their respective defensive backfields, which is why they’re reportedly the two teams bidding for Asomugha, according to Ian Rapoport.
