The stats for FA's who have success with one team then leave for another show it's hit or miss. Basically if the team you go to has the same bukiding blocks(good,solid O-line-a wr across from you to draw attention-a decent QB who can move the chains+ and opportunistic defense capable of creating turnovers and giving the offense TOP). Usually players who leave for a team which is balanced(like Moss and NE this year) can at least equal their stats from previous years.

Don't really have time to look it up right this moment, but I thought he signed a long contract extension last year?
I've seen him on these lists before, it must just be old. Yes, he signed a 4 yr deal (I believe it was 4 years, at least 3) before the season. The way it's structured, they could theoretically cut him after any of the seasons without a big cap hit, but I can't see them doing that this year with the way he's been playing (and staying healthy).
14 Teams, each keep 14 players QB: P. Manning, Schaub RB: MJD, Westy, C. Johnson, A. Bradshaw, J. Ringer WR: TO, Driver, J. Gage, Crabtree, J. Morgan, K. Curtis, E. Bennett, M. Sims-Walker TE: Witten, M. Lewis K: Gostkowski, J. Brown D/ST: Tenn, NE
The real reason Norwood hasn't gotten much work this year is because he isn't that good in pass protection. With the Falcons line transitioning from zone blocking to power blocking as well as numerous injuries across the line, Petrino needed the best pass blocking RB he had in there as much as possible. Norwood is MUCH more talented then Dunn at this stage in his career and I expect Norwood to get a majority of the carries for the rest of the year and most likely be the undisputed starter next year. Many people are worried about Norwoods durability...so the Falcons may go for a RB in the draft or via FA. But then again, we really wouldn't know how well he would hold up with 20+ carries a game seeing as how he has never gotten a chance in the NFL. With that said, when he was in college at Mississippi State, he held up while getting 20-30 carries a game.
