The Star Telegram is a horrible newspaper. I mean what the hell! They report that Marion Barber will get a first round tender, scare all of us half to death, and it’s bull shit?
Yeah, to say I am mad is saying it lightly. And they are supposed to be the “media” that reports facts. I almost threw my computer against the wall.
I have good news to report, from here.
Marion Barber gets the high tender of $2.5 million, which means any team that wants him will have to give up 1st and 3rd round picks. That’s great news and it means he is likely to stay in Dallas.
Chris Canty received a first-round tender for $2 million (I think we should have given him the first and third, too). I like Canty and hopefylly he stays, but a lot of teams could use him.
Flozell Adams, Julius Jones, cornerbacks Nate Jones and Jacques Reeves and safety Keith Davis all will test free agency. We should all be concerned about losing Adams, which just seems inevitable.
Tyson Thompson, who was a third-string running back, is gone.
