NFC Free Agency Notes: Vikes Not Focused On Marquee Names After Harvin Trade
Published March 14, 2013
TIME TO DELIVER: The Lions yesterday signed several free agents, notably RB Reggie Bush, and in Detroit, John Niyo writes there is "no denying this point: With Bush signed, the Lions have to do more than just tease their fans with highlights this time" (DETROIT NEWS, 3/14). ESPN’s Adam Schefter said, “Bill Polian already said, with Reggie Bush playing running back in Detroit, the Lions now become the greatest show on turf” (“NFL32,” ESPN2, 3/13).
SAVING GRACE: In Dallas, Rick Gosselin writes free agency is "the most overrated aspect of the NFL calendar year." Teams can "still find some complementary pieces in free agency but not the impact players." Gosselin: "Certainly not players worth the contracts they are being paid." Yesterday's free-agent signings "become tomorrow’s salary-cap casualties." So having "no money this off-season is saving" Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones "from himself" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/14).
