Where's Dillon Going?

I can really see him in Oakland or Tampa. That just feels right for him. He would be a good fit in those two systems. I've heard that the Bucs are having a hard time getting Thomas Jones to a contract b/c he wants 3 million per year. I don't think so Thomas. Pittman is going to jail and Alstott neck is really bad. Tampa wants that running game to work. Make a little sense.

Oakland has Fargas and Wheatly. Charlie Garner bought out his last year on his contract and is now a FA. So that is possible also.

It's pretty obvious that teams are waiting for Wenesday to see where Shawn Bryson ends up, then the lesser RBs should fall like dominoes.
I wouldn't be surprised to see the Cowboys or Giants try for him to keep up with the Skins upgrade. Would be a nice fit in Pittsburgh. The Chin needs to get the running game in gear to open up their passing game. Dillon could do that if he has any gas left. He has carried the ball a lot in his career and it could be taking it's toll.

Other teams actually care where Shawn Bryson ends up? I didn't know he was such a hot commodity FA. I'm curious if anyone will offer Buckhalter a contract since he's a RFA. I really thought Dallas would make an attempt to sign him away from Philly.

That Bryson is such a non-entity is what was supposed to make that humorous.

I had a feeling you were joking, but you never know with some teams. I thought you might have had some insider info on Shawn Bryson's FA. The one game I saw him (against Green Bay on turkey Day), he looked pretty good to me.

About pitt: no we dont have a ton of money but we are releasing 4, maybe 5 players who cost some wasted money. they are looking at the draft as ive heard like arlo said and ive heard they will take kevin jones then a QB like rivers in the 2nd rnd. then they have signed CB terry fair and i think they are still looking at CBs...but they wont have much money as of now

Based on that, it seems if someone has money to throw around, it doesn't matter who it is spent on - so long as it is spent.

...I could see Dillon in Philly IF someone signs Correll Buckhalter. Even then, I think they could go with a couple of different players than Dillon.

With Garner gone, Wheatley aging and Fargas unproven, I'd say Dillon would fit in nicely with Norv Turner's run friendly offense.
