My favorite thing about that column was he spent the first half of it talking about how FA is overrated and it's dumb to spend money in it and the Redskins finally have it right this year and FA is not just one weekend and going overboard early never works out (complete with charts from last year).....
Then the first thing in the section of best decisions teams made is the Bears being aggressive. Huh?

> > The three worst decisions teams made:
> > 1. Ryan Clark being unemployed. I understand that teams don't want to pay real money for a big-hitting safety who might have a short shelf life in the NFL. But there are few players in the NFL in the back end who hit as ferociously as Clark and who lead as responsibly and conscientiously as he does. I think he'd fit well with the Dolphins, the site of his visit today. And I also think the Steelers will miss him badly if he leaves.
> > 2. New England not moving aggressively to get a receiver. There's still time, of course. And I'd be shocked if New England didn't come out of this market with a veteran receiver, with Randy Moss a health risk, Wes Welker unlikely to start the season after major knee surgery, and no player in reserve to take the pressure off Moss.
> > Jimmy Johnson is close to Bill Belichick, and I'm sure the Patriot coach has heard Johnson talk about draft picks as currency. Well, it's time to use that currency. The Patriots own a one and three second-round picks -- 22nd, 44th, 47th and 53rd overall. I can see Julian Edelman doing a fine impersonation of Welker, and I don't doubt last year's sizeable third-round pick, 6-foot-1, 212 pound Brandon Tate of North Carolina, will play some role in the passing game. But with Moss 33 and Welker's return date unknown, this team is crying out for a veteran receiver. It's time to use the picks built up over years of smart draft-day dealing to get a receiver. As iffy as Anquan Boldin is, if Derrick Burgess was worth a three and a five last year, Boldin certainly would have been worth the same.
> > 3. The Giants paying Antrel Rolle like the best safety in football when he hasn't performed that way. Rolle was the second-best safety on his own team. How many times have you watched Arizona play and said, "Rolle controlled that game?'' Never. He's never had a 100-tackle season in five years (not that that's the measuring stick for a great DB). He has intercepted 12 passes in five season and forced three fumbles in 68 career games. I think he's a nice player, not a dominant one.
> > This is the second straight year the Giants have paid a free-agent defended franchise-player money. Last year it was Chris Canty's six-year, $42-million deal; now it's $37 mill for Rolle over five. Canty was hurt much of last season, but GM Jerry Reese needs Canty and Rolle to be the players he paid for or he's going to feel heat for the first time in his short but illustrious GM career.
