Sure re: avatar.
But, explain the time frame further.
Bet starts now. If Keim and Licht get a pending unrestricted free agent signed to an extension between now and March 11--the opening of free agency--you win. You pick out an image for my avatar, and I keep it up until the draft.
If we don't re-sign a pending unrestricted free agent between today and March 11 at 12:00 noon EST, then I win. I'll pick out an image for your avatar, and you keep it up until after the draft.
Pending free agents. Any of them. Winston, Cason, Rucker, Dansby, whomever.
I'm even fine taking the risk on Dave Zastudil--whom I believe is the most likely extension in the bunch.
A futures contract simply locks up the practice squad players — who would be free agents once the league year ends in early March — to contracts for 2014.
In that case you have actually already lost, K9.

I think they have to at least consider Zack Martin out of Notre Dame. He has started over 50 games at left tackle, but he might not be big enough and have long enough arms to stay at the position. He really is a great offensive lineman though, and he could easily be the best player available at that spot. The first thing everyone close to him mentions is his intelligence, leadership and work ethic. To me, the ideal position for him might be center but he could be an awesome guard as well. Obviously, I know they gave Fanaika a contract extension, they drafted Earl Watford and Colledge played at least decent this past season, but neither is in my opinion valid reasons not to upgrade the position if it can be done.
I also really like Marcus Smith out of Louisville as a rush linebacker. Not only is he big and fast, he has some pass rush moves as well, and he might have been their best defender along with safety Calvin Pryor, and I might add they were in the top five in scoring defense, rushing defense, passing defense and best overall in total defense. I think he might be available in the third round but I could easily see him rise up the boards.
I think Mitch might have forgotten Ed Reynolds out of Stanford as a potential safety. He is both a hard hitter and a ballhawk, and I believe he could cover tight ends really well. This season he played alongside Jordan Richards in the Stanford secondary, and both of them had responsibilities as a free and strong safety. I think that speaks to the strengths of Reynolds that he can be used in a variety of ways.
This is from 12/31. I don't know if anything has changed. From ROB: http://www.revengeofthebirds.com/20...dinals-offseason-who-are-the-many-free-agents. That's quite alot there. I'm thinking maybe one of the minimum type guys signs first. Like a Rucker or a Talley. Then again, only 6 starters. I could also see this riding out until Dansby gets figured out. Let alone what does or doesn't happen to Bowles.
Dude--I do legal writing for a living. We already extended Fanika in-season.
Nice try, though.
Not sure what you are getting at?
Thank you, but a try would mean I cared about who won the bet. Why would I do that? I don't know either of you.
By the way, does this count as it was done today?
I personally like David Yankey over Zach Martin, but I hear what you are saying. However, after spending two picks last year on interior linemen and then extending Fanaika, I am pretty sure we are looking for someone who can play outside at tackle.
Also, I'm not sure we are in position to draft the Justin Pugh's and Bryan Bulaga's of the draft. Getting players with potential in the first is still key.
Ebron is more of a Vernon Davis-type player but do the team really need that? I mean, they do have Floyd and Fitzgerald, and Housler does actually make a play once in a while.
