- Brandon Marshall's off-field issues could cost him financially.
My take: Marshall is set to be a free agent next year. Denver will likely either give him the franchise tag or let him go if his troubles persist. The team will not give him a long-term deal until he can prove for an extended period that he can stay out of trouble.
- The time is now for Matt Cassel.
My take: The Cassel-Kansas City marriage will work. This was the right move for the Chiefs. Cassel may not become Len Dawson but he will be a successful quarterback as the Chiefs try to move forward.
- Justin Fargas restructured his contract and he will likely stay in Oakland.
My take: If the Raiders are going to keep Fargas, Darren McFadden and Michael Bush, they must find a way to use them all. All three are quality players. Last season, Oakland couldn't figure out how to use the trio. These players are among the bright spots for Oakland. The team has to make it work.
- Igor Olshansky is visiting the Dallas Cowboys.
My take: Olshansky hasn't gotten much play on the open market. Dallas could be interesting. The Cowboys run a similar scheme to San Diego and Cowboys coach Wade Phillips is familiar with Olshansky from his San Diego days. This could work. What we do know is Olshansky will not return to the Chargers.
