Calgary’s Quarterback Carousel

It’s been an unusual season in Calgary to say the least; even after the weekends defeat to Toronto (33-27), the Stampeders still have the best record in the league (9-3), but the ‘quarterback carousel’ continues to revolve.

The season opened with Drew Tate under center but, through injury, he gave way to Kevin Glenn. Bo Levi Mitchell took over when Tate’s injury resurfaced later in the season.

Lions want Matthew Stafford long-term

The reason to explore a contract extension with Matthew is to fulfill that goal of having him be our quarterback for a long time. It’s not a short-term look at the salary cap. That’s the wrong way to look at that. When you look at extending somebody like Matthew, he’s not going to take less money to extend.

Offensive sign by Eagles to Ed Wang

Offensive tackle Ed Wang played six games for the Bills in 2010.

Wang (6-5, 315 pounds) played six games in 2010 for the Bills, who drafted him in the fifth round out of Virginia Tech. He hasn’t played in an NFL game since, although he spent some time last season with the Raiders.

Wang, 25, will compete for a roster spot this spring and summer. The Eagles have a stable of tackles behind projected starters Jason Peters and Todd Herremans, including Dennis Kelly, Nate Menkin, Allen Barbre, Matt Reynolds and Matt Kopa. Veteran tackle King Dunlap, who just finished his fifth season, had his contract expire and isn’t expected to return.

Packers release veteran Charles Woodson

“(Charles Woodson) has been an integral part of the Packers’ success and our Super Bowl title in 2010 would not have been possible without his contributions,” general manager Ted Thompson said in a release. “A once-in-a-generation talent as a player, he is also a great leader and ambassador for the organization off the field.”

Turning 37 years old in October, Woodson has suffered two broken collarbones the last three years. And entering his 16th NFL season, he was due a base salary of $6.5 million with a roster bonus of $2.5 million the first day of training camp.

Can Doug Martin become an elite back next season?

a 22-year-old, as the 23-year-old Martin gained over 250 yards and scored four times against the Raiders. Martin would have a fantastic rookie season beyond that one outstanding performance, earning a Pro Bowl selection and finishing in the top five for Rookie of the Year. In fact, Martin had the second best season for a running back in team history, and the best season for a Buccaneer rookie runner. He contributed in all phases of the running back’s duties, as an excellent runner, pass catcher, and pass blocker. But will there be a sophomore slump?

Geno Smith will throw at combine; Matt Barkley, too?

USC’s Matt Barkley will throw. If the top quarterbacks in this class both go full workout, others at the position will surely follow.

Top talent in 2013 NFL Draft?
Could Luke Joeckel be the best football player in a tricky draft class? Bucky Brooks and Daniel Jeremiah talk it out. More …

The decision makes sense for both players. Smith has a big arm and shouldn’t have anything to hide. Barkley can use the event to convince teams of his arm strength and prove he’s 100 percent healthy after a sprained shoulder prematurely ended his senior season.

Quarterbacks are using this combine to sell themselves as first-round talent. It makes sense they would take advantage of a full workout to state their case.
