    Round up of today's moves:
    Falcons sign DE Adrian Clayborn (1 year, $4.5 million)
    Eagles sign RB Ryan Mathews (3 years, $11.5M; $5M guaranteed)
    Saints sign CB Brandon Browner (3 years, $15 million)
    Texans sign S Rahim Moore (3 years, $12 million)
    Jets sign CB Antonio Cromartie (4 years, $32 million)
    Ravens re-sign RB Justin Forsett (3 years, $9 million)
    Eagles sign RB DeMarco Murray (5 years, $42M; $21M guaranteed)
    Chiefs acquire G Ben Grubbs from Saints for 5th-round pick
    Titans sign S Da'Norris Searcy (4 years, $24M; $10.5M guaranteed)

    Also, from yesterday:
    Bears sign S Antrel Rolle (3 years, $11.25M; $5M guaranteed)
    Colts sign DE/DT Kendall Langford (4 years, $17.2 million)
    Bengals sign LB A.J. Hawk (2 years, $3.25M; $500K guaranteed)
    Raiders sign OLB Malcolm Smith (2 years, $7 million)


    Has Chip gone on a serious power trip? "Let's get rid of Foles, Maclin and McCoy, and get a RB and a QB made of glass (Mathews and Bradford), and a RB that was banged up for most of his career before finally staying healthy and making good on his potential (Murray). The Saints needed to upgrade their secondary, and Browner is as physical as they come. Good move, but, he does get a load of penalties. It's nice to see Rahim Moore get paid, and it's a fair deal for him. He's a middle of the road starter but that's a good move.Forsett is on a nice deal too.

    What's with all the u-turns? Bye-bye Cleveland...hello Miami, for Jordan Cameron.

    Can they just change themselves from the Cleveland Browns to the Cleveland Factory of Sadness officially, now...?

    People's thoughts on what cowboys should do to replace Murray?

    Looking to the draft?

    There's some nice first round picks, worth trading up for?

    I think the Cowboys can sit on their own 1st round pick and hope Gurley makes it to them. I personally think he will. If he doesn't there are 2nd and 3rd round guys they could look for too. RB is stacked this year, they'll solve their problem I think, and for much less than $8M per year.

    Yeah I think they'll get someone good without having to trade up, can't see many teams above them targeting an RB.

    49ers, Chargers, Jaguars (if they trade the 3rd pick to the Eagles or someone else), maybe the Lions (but probably not), maybe the Cardinals.

    But that's about it for teams that could take a running back. 49ers and Chargers the main two I'd watch for

    Can't see Darren Sproles staying at the Eagles now they have Murray and Mathews, he's too good to use as just a punt/kickoff returner.

    No QB, no high draft pick, no Josh Gordon. Tank and hope that someone comes out next year.

    Well, we have Darren mcfadden now so have a decent RB the two weeks if the year he's not injured.

    Really?

    REALLY??

    I mean obviously the Cowboys can run whatever they want, but why not keep the same five guys doing the same thing that made them the best line in the league????

    Teams should wait in the second, third or even fourth round, especially with RB's like Buck Allen, Tevin Coleman, Duke Johnson, Jay Ajayi still available. Buck Allen will be the monster running back-dark horse candidate; he's got all of the physical tools and did very well for USC. Not worth reaching in the first when guys like them will be available in the middle rounds.

    Heck, I guarantee that there's a running back like Curtis Artis-Payne, TJ Yeldon, Buck Allen in the third or even fourth round.

    The Cowboys? Even he could run behind their line! I don't think he's done either. He'll find a landing spot, he'll probably have 2 YPC again and then he'll be done. It'd be nice to see him revive his career though... maybe, he's become a running joke excuse the pun.

    The Cowboys would be quite amusing, but I'd see him in Atlanta perhaps


    Also the 'Hawks KR/PR Bryan Walters just signed with the Jags, I'm glad because he seems like a good guy but you knew that basically as soon as the ball got kicked he was waving his hand for a fair catch

    Cowboys is a great shout. He will get paid under 1m on a one year deal, and he will finally have a chance to run the outside zone. Obviously if he can't run behind the Boys line he had better start taking punt coverage more seriously if he wants to stay in the league. For the Cowboys they get a bargain basement player who fits their scheme and had the upside to be an uncontroversial first rounder. I hope it happens.

    Ponder visiting the Raiders. Reggie Bush to Patriots?

    Harvin to the Bills. Mike Wallace being put up for trade after Kenny Stills lands with the Dolphins

    Also bloody Fairley joins Aaron Donald and Robert Quinn on the Rams D-Line. Joy for us, having just rid ourselves of 2 out of three of our best O-linemen

    Atlanta could be good for him, they're not reliant on their RB much as a runner, he's alright as a receiving back. Also good for Atlanta because their running game is pretty substandard if I recall correctly.

    At least he doesn't fumble! I'm afraid to say Ace Sanders drops too many balls. I witnessed one actually, at Wembley.

    Stefen Wisniewski is basically choosing between the Bucs and the 'Hawks atm. Bucs probably offering more money, but 'Hawks offering stability and success now. Guess we'll find out what kind of guy he is. Praying for him to come to us

    Behind that line, he'll have the legendary 1.0YPC. (Shudders).

    Atlanta do not run block very well...at all.

    Welcome to the new American Football talk thread. Here we talk college football, NFL and British Universities American Football League (BUAFL).

    We like to think we're a knowledgeable bunch on the sport so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask them. Here's some rookie guides to game to get you started:

    http://http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/...ll/3192002.stm BBC Sport

    http://http://www.nfl.com/rulebook/b...uidetofootball NFL

    Just watch a few games though, you can pick most of it up as you go along.

    American Football is constantly growing on UK television so here is the where to watch guide: Welcome to the Offseason The Dead-Zone has begun, watching NFL at this time is only available on GamePass in the UK and other non-US territories.

    NFL GamePass - GamePass is a seasonal subscription service which costs £30 for subscription until July. It allows you to watch last season and many more historic games as well as the combine and draft. You also get NFL Network's 24 hour stream of NFL News and other programming. It will automatically renew at the end of the subscription period for the new season at £120 though so do be careful and remember to cancel.

    There are 32 Teams in the NFL split into 8 divisions and 2 conferences, not many of us have geographic connections to the teams we support so it just came down to picking one because we liked them. Here are the teams and a list of people here who support them.

    Teams and their supporters:
