Schaub signed a six-year, $48 million contract with the Texans, a move that officially consummates the trade. As part of the deal, Schaub -- who played golf with Houston coach Gary Kubiak on Monday in a get-acquainted session, the Houston Chronicle reported -- will receive $7 million in guarantees. Schaub has not won a regular-season start and barely completed 50 percent of his pass attempts in three seasons with the Falcons.
Williams and Davis are indeed one and the same person. He changed his name as a tribute to his mother, but at least he retained the Welsh theme! Career over methinks. Just goes to show how short a running back's career can be. Mikey, Dougie, Jake etc beware!
At last..........a free safety who can cover!!.......this frees up Roy to be in full takedown mode ;D

Hamlin, who played the past four seasons with the Seattle Seahawks, has 298 tackles and eight career interceptions.

The Cowboys have signed FS Ken Hamlin to an undisclosed contract.

Redskins have reportedly offered the Bears a trade for LB Lance Briggs.
The Redskins are offering to trade their no. 6 first round pick in this years draft for Briggs and the Bears' no. 31 first round pick.
Briggs was recently given the franchise tag by the after they couldn't agree a new deal for him (Basically because to sort out a deal they would have to offer Briggs more than Brian Ulracher gets paid, which is only the 8th highest in the league for his position, and stats wise both Ulracher and Briggs compare to the top 5 highest paid linebackers in the league).
