FA Week 1

Jack Tatum FS: Denver pays big bucks for their new FS. Tatum is in his 10th year with 30% retirement. Denver is paying 8.4 million a year over 3 years with over 6 million guaranteed per year. Last season Tatum allowed 34.8% with 5 int's thrown at 89 times.

Ronald Ryan LDE:
Ryan signed a 1 year contract with Miami for almost 15 million, 11 million in bonus. Ryan has just 18 sacks in 5 seasons with the Giants.

Roosevelt Larson DT: Cleveland finds another pass rusher. Larson got a 3 year contract worth 11.4 million. In 1974 Larson has 15 sacks with 63 hurries, but last season was buried on Carolina's depth chart.

Jeese Fonseca WLB: The Rams land an 8th year LB with a default rating of 88. He got a 2 year contract worth 16 million. Fonseca had 94 tackles in 1974, but barely saw the field last season.

Victor Fuller C: Fuller was probably the biggest FA target this season, and Denver outbid everybody. He signed a 5 year contract for 41.8 million with 30.6 guaranteed. It seems like the Broncos want to try him at RT. Fuller allowed 1 sack and 23 tackles last season.

Draft Day tomorrow. Good Luck

Note: sorry, but some of the misc overall records on our website are not accurate. The stats in MFN sometimes locks up on me and i cant retrieve them at that time. I will go back from time to time to try and update them.

The Cards grabbed a couple of Paydirt's past stars who are a little long in the tooth now. A short term stop gap to fill roster spots.

Arizona welcomes QB Sammie Carpenter and WR Brian Armstrong.

Pick nº 6 for the Miami Dolphins. Not the strongest Draft class but I have a few candidates for my 1st round pick. Let's see how it goes!

With the 6th pick in the 1976 Paydirt Draft, the Miami Dolphins select WR Paul Paul.

I don't usually like to select players with high volatily with my 1st round pick but WR Paul Paul has every non-improvable attribute that I want in a WR, plus already at 75 pass catching, high Ball Carrying... More dynamite to my WR corp.

I’m to the pint that anything -5 and above is like a boom. If I see a + I’m shocked.
