    I'll say that they will find a trade destination for him, but if for some reason they don't, he will be released in the last round of cuts in camp. His bonus isn't due until the first day of the regular season, so they can wait up until then to cut him and see what someone wants to pay (by then it's too late to learn another team's offense for the season), so they have all the leverage to trade him. But they won't pay that bonus.

    TO at his worse was 100 times better to have on your team than this guy.

    Mr. Hankey is offended that you would use that comparison!

    Looks like MIN is plotting on VY. He and AP have been working out together, rumored to be schooling him on the playbook. RUMORED...but makes sense.

    Very interesting. Of course, players are intermingling quite a bit right now, but the playbook stuff suggests more. It could be VY merely exploring whether he would like the system. A collateral effect of this would be that it would reduce the trade value of McNabb a bit since MN is of the primary targets for his services. It'll be interesting to keep an eye on that situation.

    That surprises me a little. I would think teams that just drafted a QB like Minnesota, Tennessee, and Cincinnati would be interested in a veteran on the backside of their career to help transition to their draft pick. Guys like Bulger and McNabb.

    I've heard or read where it appears that Kolb is a done deal to Arizona. I still think McNabb's likely destination is Miami.

    Yeah, I don't know if it's AP working out with him on his own, or if there is some behind the scenes reason they are working out together. There was a quick story on PFT about how MIN was not interested in VY because if they get a veteran they want one that can't REALLY win the job from Ponder, but I smell BS there, because what veteran-should-be-contending team wants to throw a rookie out there sink or swim?

    Bump.

    I thought it would be humorous to go back and look at this thread. It still holds up though, IMO.

    I think that funniest thing in this thread was the reports of VY in DC when a scam artist got busted in the area for impersonating VY.
