They're comin! Hold your horses, Bob.

People are still talking about Doug Free's retirement in uncertain terms. Has he said anything about it himself?
Zach Links
3:12
Initially, there was conflicting word on what Doug Free would do. Then, about 2 weeks ago, he personally informed the Cowboys that he'll retire. I haven't heard Free discuss it publicly, but it seems pretty certain that he's done.

any thing floating around regarding landing spots for cam robinson?
Zach Links
3:14
It's early but Seahawks, Texans, Ravens all make varying degrees of sense for him in the first round. Will be interesting to see how OTs go in the draft considering lack of depth there

Do you think zach brown will sign with the dolphins?
Zach Links
3:16
I think today's restructured deal agreement with Koa Misi could be a precursor to signing Brown. Brown really stepped up his game last year and the fact that he's still on the board says to me that he can be had on a cheaper-than-expected one year deal. The Dolphins should make this happen if it's at all possible.
Misi restructure lowered him to a $1.15MM guaranteed base, remains to be seen what else is involved still:

I think another move or 2 will be needed to carve out the additional space necessary to fit Brown. Remember - they still need enough $ to sign their draft picks.

Can I get my hopes up?
Zach Links
3:19
Well, don't go crazy, but I think the playoffs are a possibility. Bouye was a great signing and so was Calais Campbell, even at that price. Can Blake Bortles get it together this year? That's what will ultimately be the biggest factor.

Do you know if Austin Pasztor wants to play G or T going forward? Because the Packers could really
Zach Links
3:22
I doubt he has a real preference right now given that he's still on the board in late March. His best position might be at T after the season he had, but not all evaluators will agree
His experience on inside and outside is a definite plus

Predictions on where AP, Charles and Blount wind up playing next season.
Zach Links
3:26
I think the Giants would be a logical landing spot for any of those guys. Through anonymous sources in the past, they've denied having interest in Peterson, but I think plenty of teams have interest at the right price. At this point, his price has come down and same has to go for Blount, to an extent.
3:27
I'll say Peterson to Giants, Blount to Raiders if they can't make Lynch deal happen. Charles is more of a timeshare guy after 2 years of injuries, will take a while for his mkt to develop
3:28
I could see Charles joining the Packers for chance at good # of carries + winning

Please tell me DeAngelo Willams will be the backup behind Bell and not Knile Davis.....last thing we want is a rerun of Ben Tate!!!
Zach Links
3:28
When all is said and done, I think DeAngelo circles back to the Steelers.
3:29
Also, I've now heard Ben Tate's name twice today (Spring League being the first). Was not expecting that.

Should the Seahawks go hard for CB King and DB Obi M. after trading out of the 1st ? Or should they reach on 1 of the Olinemen that might fall to them ?
Zach Links
3:29
O-Line help would certainly be a great idea, but as you alluded to, there will be a lot of OLs overdrafted since its so thin in that area
Lots of DBs, fortunately
Bryce

Who is the best available edge rusher at this point...Dumervil, Freeney or other?
Zach Links
3:31
Freeney, but it's a coinflip. Personally, I like his ability to play in a 4-3 or 3-4 scheme, plus he was largely healthy
Then again, Dumervil is only 1 year removed from a Pro Bowl & 6 sack season. Wouldn't mind either guy on my team

Does Ted still have some work to do before the draft?
Zach Links
3:32
Yes but it's much a shallower pool than it was even one week ago. I suspect there will be more heavy lifting in the draft
Landis
3:32
Over/under combined wins for Browns, Jets and Jags: 10.5
Zach Links
3:33
I'll take the over, thank you very much, but the Jets did make me think twice about it
Long way to go between now and September but this Jets team has the potential to be historically putrid.

Will you answer my Jimmy g question?
Zach Links
3:35
un momento por favor. swamped with hundreds of questions already
Josh
3:35
Hey Zach, what do you think the package for Jimmy G will be,
Zach Links
3:36
The Patriots are either playing hardball or they're very, very serious about keeping him as a backup. I think the Browns would be nuts to trade the No. 1 overall pick plus a future first, as once was the rumored asking price. The No. 12 + a second round pick should be as high as the Browns go, and even then, they should give that some serious thought.
VonBrewski
3:36
Does Jimmy G get traded? I think the Pats could get a haul for him......reload
Zach Links
3:37
I can't get a good read on it right now. If the Browns are crazy enough to give up the No. 1 overall as part of a deal, then I'd imagine it happens.
