The thing is we all need to expand our horizon at times and i want to introduce are viewers to something new. So check out this new song from The Script "For the First Time"

NFL: McNabb soon to be a Viking? (Deal in Place)

The Redskins, Vikings, and McNabb have a preliminary deal in place and have apparently agreed to terms.

The sides have seemingly ironed out the kinks in the deal. It seems that the Redskins will receive two 6th round draft picks from Minnesota for McNabb. One pick in 2012 and one in 2013.

Sources say the fact that Minnesota seems to really help McNabb meant a lot to him and his family. Especially after the turmoil in Washington last season.

The deal is not officially done but is said to be official by the end of the day.

NFL: Santonio Holmes Agrees to Deal With JETS!

If the New York Jets had a to do list, signing Santonio Holmes would have been #1 on the list, and they did JUST THAT. Holmes and the Jets have agreed to terms. Holmes agrees to a 5 year, $50 million deal, $24 million guaranteed. That is the highest guarantee ever for a Wide Receiver in league history.

In only 12 games last season Holmes had 52 receptions, 746 yards, and 6 touchdowns.

Congrats to Holmes and the Jets.

NFL: Carson Palmer Forced to Retire?

Carson Palmer has been threatening to retire if he is not traded. Palmer, the Quarterback of the Cincinnati Bengals is obviously not happen with his organization and the direction they are going. The Bengals are one of the worst overall franchises in the history of the NFL. They have only had 2 winning seasons in the past 20 years!

Bengals owner Mike Brown, is not backing down from his decision. He stated that he will not trade Carson Palmer.

Palmer has 4 years remaining on his contract with the Bengals.

Browns Words on Palmer:

“I honestly like Carson Palmer,” Brown said. “He was a splendid player for us. He’s a good person. I wish him well. And he is retired. That is his choice. … I’m not expecting him to be back.”

“Carson signed a contract. He made a commitment. He gave his word,” Brown said. “We relied on his word. We relied on his commitment. We expected him to perform here. He’s going to walk away from his commitment. We aren’t going to reward him for doing it.”

We'll see what happens in the standoff soon!

NFL: Matt Hasselbeck agrees to Terms, signs with Titans

Talks have been going on for the past few days between Hasselbeck and the Titans. Sources close to the situation have reported that the two sides have reached a deal that will bring Hasselback to Nashville next season. The terms of the deal have not been disclosed yet.

The Titans have obvious quarterback needs. They plan to let Vince Young go, and the veteran Kerry Collins retired after the season. With the 8th overall pick in the draft the Titans drafted Jake Locker. Most teams would rather not start a rookie QB, especially with the summer cut shorty due to the lockout. The presence of Hasselbeck in front of Locker could help Locker and the Titans in the long run.
