OT: NFL Free Agency Thread

Since there has been a steady flow of useless diaries started lately, I figured we could lump all the NFL Free Agency talk into a single thread.  A few notes of interest so far:

As miles posted earlier: "According to a team source, the Dallas Cowboys re-signed the four-time Pro Bowl left tackle Thursday to a six-year deal worth more than $42 million with $15 million in guaranteed money over the first three years of the contract, ESPN's Ed Werder reported."

Not sure how I feel about this one.  That's a lot of money/years for an aging tackle.  I guess Jerry didn't have much confidence in some of these first day picks from last year. Short term, it helps. Long term, I think we end up regretting this.

Parcells & Co. kicked off Free Agency by signing over-rated Guard Justin Smiley to a five-year, $25 million deal.  Smiley had a pretty solid 2006, but his 07 was downright terrible.  When the 49ers don't resign a offensive linemen, you know that's bad news.

And for those who were wondering about the Fischer comments regarding Barber, it was sometime last week on a local television show.
