I have TO in a keeper for many years, so I have vested interest in where he ends up. I don't think SF has intentions of keeping TO. They have a crop of good yound up and comers like B. Lloyd, C.Wilson and T.Streets. Besides, they also need to decide on Garcia as well. I think SF will re-sign Garcia and let TO go.
Atlanta: I have yet to see Vick prove himself as a good passer. This could be disastrous for TO's career. Look at P.Price=worthless
Oakland: kinda depends who the hell the QB is going to be next year. However, TO along side with a healthy and fast J.Porter could make for a interesting passing attack.
Arizona: As others have said, they are building around Shipp and Boldin, besides, they aren't willing to spend the big cash on TO, they let Boston slide
Kansas City: Without saying, this would be sensational for TO. T. Green, hiding behind that massive O-line, launching it to TO.
But, will Vermeil go for it?
New England: I'm not too thrilled about him playing here. Cold weather, defensive battles, not exactly TO's thing. Besides, Belichik likes players he likes. He got rid of Bledsoe because apparently Bledsoe didn't "fit" in to his system. Gimme a break.
I don't like this one.
Baltimore: Say goodbye to TO's career. It's the Jamal show here and that's it. Who's gonna pass to TO? A.Wright?? Boller?
Philly: At first, I didn't like the prospect of TO going to Philly because I am unconvinced that McNabb can throw deep. But, the more I think about it, the more inclined I am to agree that this might be the best move for TO. Simply because he will get ALL the receptions in Philly, I mean ALL of them. He'll probably average over 10 receptions a game, which means he'll get monster yardage no matter what. Arguebly, no WR can turn a 5 yard pass into a 40 yard gain better than TO.
I've noticed this year that SF has been spreading the ball around alot to many different receivers. Even in the high scoring games TO hasn't had a 10 reception game this season. Over the last few years, he was the man. He holds the record for most receptions in a game (20).
Yea I agree with the analysis that TO would be best in KC or Philly, but TO wouldn't be able to handle the offence revolving around Priest, plus KC shelled out some dollars for Priest just this year. Philly would be the ideal fit for TO but Andy Reid doesn't seem the type to take on a player like this. With Vincent and Taylor both free agents this year Philly will likely sign a top-flite corner (Bailey or Woodson) and a WR would be a perfect fit. But, on the other hand Philly does have a habit of signing older WRs (Fryar and Freeman) while they let veterans at every other position walk (Douglas). To get back on topic where will DJ go assuming that Seattle doesnt resign him (which I think they will).

A couple things on teh mention of Kc as a destination.
#1. They have around $15 Million and change to play with....key UFA are Greg Wesley and John Tait
#2. WIth that money I think we re-sign Tait and then we HAVE to get a MLB or a CB...like I mean the top one at either position.
Guys I am thinking of here are Al Wilson, Champ Bailey, Chris McCallister or Shawn SPrings (more of a second tier)
#3. Vermeil wont have TO in here.....thi isnt Martyball where we had our own jailhouse team of RIson, Vanover, Bam Morris, Dale Carter, Wayne Simmons and such
TO wont be in KC unless Vermeil retires and Saunders is head man then I could possibly see it
#4. Have ta seen the defense? DO you know that KC still has a young guy named Boerighter? Why do yu screw with teh #1 Offense in the league?
Forget T.O give me Shawn SPrings and Al Wilson and I will be happy.
