Now reading these rumors you can't tell me other teams aren't looking for QBs.Miami,Oakland,Detroit,Arizona,Cleveland and I am sure maybe a few more.Schaub has alot to offer and hopefully one of these teams bites for either there 1st rounder or a high second rounder.What about peterson would you guys be interested in him although it doesn't seem he is 100%?We need help in alot of areas I am not so sure I would pay big dollars for him
McNair heading to Miami?
<Jan. 6> Steve McNair's agent, Bus Cook, told the Miami Herald that his client would "amenable" to playing for the Dolphins if the Titans cut or trade McNair.
The Titans would like to keep McMair, and McNair has said he'd be willing to ride out Tennessee's rebuilding process, but salary-cap contraints could force the parties to cut ties. The 32-year-old McNair will be owed a $50 million option bonus next March, which would inflate his cap number to $28.9 million. Even if the Titans elect not to pick up McNair's option, the QB will still have an unmanageable cap number of $16.4 million.
The Dolphins could be searching for not only an upgrade at starting quarterback, but a tutor/role model for whatever young quarterback prospect they begin developing next season.
Dolphins coach Nick Saban said, "[McNair] still has the ability to move. There's no question about that. He scrambles to throw a little bit more now than when he was younger, but he can run it if he needs to."
Raiders keeping Collins?
<Jan. 5> Many assumed QB Kerry Collins would follow Norv Turner out the door in Oakland. That's not necessarily the case, according to team owner Al Davis.
"I think that would depend on who we talk to, what is available," Davis told the Oakland Tribune. "I think Kerry did adequately well considering other factors maybe not seen by the press or fans. I think he did reasonably well. He had no running game and his protection slipped."
Collins put up respectable numbers in '05 (3,759 yards, 20-12 touchdown-to-interception ratio) but has the highest salary-cap figure on the team (nearly $12.9 million). Collins is the only proven starter on the Raiders' roster, so cutting him before the QB market shakes out would be a calculated risk.
Volek wants to play
<Jan. 5> Volek, who turns 30 in April, is on the radar of several teams interested in trading for a quarterback, but has not ruled out a return to the Titans, the Tennessean reports.
Volek also has a $4 million option in his deal. By paying the $4 million, the Titans would add the 2008 season to the end of his current contract. If they don't pay the option, they could still keep Volek under contract by paying him a $500,000 roster bonus in March. Volek is scheduled to make base salaries of $1 million in 2006 and $1.25 million in 2007.
However, the Titans may be attempted to trade Volek to a team like the Jets. Steve McNair is expected to be back in Tennessee, and the Titans also own the No. 3 pick in the draft.
Peterson finished in S.F.?
<Jan. 4> Peterson may have appeared in his final game as a 49er, the Sacramento Bee reports. Making Peterson their franchise player for the third time would cost the team nearly $9 million in salary-cap space -- too much for someone whose play took a decided dip a year after he suffered a torn Achilles' tendon.
Fellow linebacker Derek Smith is also set to become a free agent if he is not re-signed in the next two months, and the 49ers bigger priority seems to be retaining Smith. Peterson is represented by agent Kevin Poston, and said he would sit down with Poston and his parents in the coming weeks to discuss how to move forward.
"I want to be back, but also I want to have some time to think and sort it out," Peterson said
Sometimes running the Mularkey offense makes me feel like I'm in a prison.
