His injuries last season are a cause for concern, but I wonder if everything will check out for him. Seems like a good guy, hopefully this isn't the end for him.


I'm still pulling to bring MARSHALL-MARSHALL-MARSHALL back to San Diego haha.

ESPN's John Clayton (http://www.kffl.com/link/125) reports the St. Louis Rams (http://www.kffl.com/team/34/nfl) may not release WR Isaac Bruce (http://www.kffl.com/player/1779/nfl) after all due to the recent extension of the waiver deadline. Bruce was a cap casualty under the previous deadline, but the Rams (http://www.kffl.com/team/34/nfl) may choose to remove his name from that list and continue to use the extra time to work out a new contract with him.

What the heck i didnt know you could do that. So the raiders said "ooops never mind we want him back" or did they never officially release him? And i think bruce has officially been released its on the bottom right hand of espn news.

I read somewhere that the owners can decide not to release the player before free agency ends. So any releasedplayer may still be picked up again due to the uncertainty of the CBA talks and teams not knowing what the cap will be.

NFL Most Valuable Player Shaun Alexander has agreed to a $62 million, eight-year contract to remain with the Seattle Seahawks, his agent said last night.

Jim Steiner said the deal is the richest ever for an NFL running back and will pay the league's leading rusher over $15.1 million in guaranteed cash, through signing and other bonuses and 2006 base salary.

Steiner told The Associated Press of the signing in a telephone interview, minutes after the NFL pushed back the start of the free-agent signing period 72 hours to Thursday.

The league still must approve the contract, and Alexander has yet to sign it.

The team is waiting for the contract to become official before announcing the deal, though a media conference at team headquarters could come as early as this afternoon.

“They definitely wanted to do this,” Steiner said of the Seahawks bringing back Alexander, who set an NFL record with 28 touchdowns last season. “And Seattle was Shaun's first choice all along.”


Raiders cut QB Collins?
The Oakland Raiders parted ways with quarterback Kerry Collins in a move to get them below the salary cap by last night's on-again, off-again deadline, The Associated Press reported. He would count $9.2 million against the cap.
However, Raiders senior personnel executive Michael Lombardi and Collins' agent, David Dunn, denied the report after the deadline was put off again, and told the Contra Costa Times that Collins remains signed through 2009.


Jets retain Pennington
Quarterback Chad Pennington will stay with the New York Jets after agreeing to a restructured contract that will provide the team with needed salary cap relief.
The Jets also extended the contract of offensive lineman Pete Kendall and cut 35-year-old center Kevin Mawae, a longtime fixture in their offensive line.


Pack, Green reach deal
The Green Bay Packers reached agreement on a one-year contract with running back Ahman Green, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported on its Web site, citing an unnamed NFL source.
Though Green was insistent on a multiyear deal, he accepted a one-year contract that will pay him a base salary of around $2 million and features $3 million more in incentives.


Arrington bought out
The Washington Redskins parted ways with three-time Pro Bowl linebacker LaVar Arrington, who agreed to a contract buyout so that he could become a free agent, The Associated Press reported.
Arrington agreed to give up more than $4 million in his contract rather than restructure it in a way that would allow him to remain with the Redskins, an official with knowledge of the transaction told the AP on condition of anonymity.


K.C. Super in 2015?
Commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced that Kansas City would host the 2015 Super Bowl if voters approve a tax to renovate Arrowhead Stadium.
Tagliabue said late last year that Kansas City would get a Super Bowl if the renovations were made and if a rolling roof was built to make the stadium climate-controlled. Yesterday, he said the owners had voted to make Kansas City the site of the 2015 Super Bowl if the stadium is renovated.


Around the league
RAMS: Cut wide receiver Isaac Bruce after failing to come to terms with him on a contract extension.
BUCS: Linebacker Derrick Brooks agreed to rework his contract to stay with the club.

Bruce was set to count $8.1M against the cap, he's going to stay cut unless he signs a new contract.

Although Bruce is 33, he still has some gas left in the tank. He's almost 3 years younger than McCardell and had to deal with turf toe for the first half of 2005. He came back those and was close to his normal self. If his toe is ok, he would be great for the Chargers.

Since the Chargers aren't real big on the "if" (See Drew Brees), they sure as hell aren't going to sign a 33 year old receiver who may or may not be effective.

I absolutely love Issac Bruce. He is a great WR. BUT he is ancient.. 30 something years old. Plus our WR core isnt that bad, Parker is getting better, caldwell is getting a lil better and plus we have the 6 foot something vincent jackson.
but if we could get him cheap, he would be a good 1-2 year thing

We should still see if we can get one of the better WR in the draft. I love Issac Bruce but his age has got to be a factor.

We do have have nice wr core but is always nice to have more wide outs keep a fresh roation in, Issac and McKardel and old and prob need some rest. we need some explosiveness out of our wide outs and maybe we can pick that up in the first round. the only way we could bring Issac over is for him to accept a short length deal

Bruce was released because of his age. If a team signs him he'll give them a solid 1 maybe 2 years.

And in any case, he really is kind of old. We need to develop our younger receivers more than we need one with a year or two left in the tank.

Ike can still play, and I hope he finishes his career with the Rams. You definitely do not want to go about things the Raiders way from a few years back. That being signing old veterans and building your team for one super bowl run. Look where they're at now. The young receivers in San Diego are coming along nicely, another one added in the draft will do good.

Boltfan92153
03-06-2006, 04:17 PM
yeah, bruce is a good guy but a super bowl is good if you win it, it is even better if you repeat. Bruce can run the routes, catch the pass, but can't burn the DB anymore. He is one of those players that should never play on another team besides the one he has history with. It would be like Dan Fouts playing for another team, besides he is not guaranteed to be gone from the rams from what I saw on NFL.com.

We should sign Issac Bruce. He is a great all around receiver. This would help our receiving core because it could use a lot of help, and Bruce can deliver the help.

Im just saying..we shouldnt go spending our money on players that are gonna retire in a couple years. Especially when its on a position that we dont really need at the time.
Our money should go to the O-Line and the secondary
