@ECB I'm not sure Brown's production from his first four seasons was the reason he was not resigned. Last year's production and his refusal to give up when things looked grim more than merited signing, him; problem was, he was one of he top FA RBs and got a market deal at $3.0-$3.5M per year. Our entire current backfield (Ballard, Bradshaw, TRich) costs a hair more than that, and if healthy, the team feels they can all produce a well as Brown for less. His nagging injury history prior to 2013 may have factored in.
If there were 5 clearly superior RB FAs on the market and Brown looked like a $2.0M player given that market, I think they might have resigned him.

Wasn't it Josh Gordy who officially put the KC playoff game away by batting away Smith's final pass (or maybe it was just body positioning to force the WR out of bounds). Regardless, it was a good defensive play (on a marginal pass) when we needed it. I'd hate for Sergio Brown to leave special teams (small of me, I know).
If you judge by 2013 records (not always the smartest idea) it' an EZ sate-AFCS was bad, as was NFCE, and ACN was so-so. The other div champs will be tough, of course... and all those weak 2013 teams could be improved. Except the Jags, of course.

@thellamajockey @DougEngland Wow, that is a very interesting idea about PUP for Reggie and maybe trading one of the promising ids to a team whose WR goes down early.... I am sure RW would HATE it--a guy who drives a dump truck to training camp with a hard hat on--he wants to work and get a job done and not be put on a shelf, but it could be the smart move. May depend on schedule, too.

Totally off-topic, but I just saw a great Grigson quote about Donald Thomas: "He’s stronger than 9 acres of garlic up top." This totally makes me wary, of course, because their other flamboyant phrases ("rolling ball of butcher knives"--Pagano on Richardson and "800-lb safe in the middle"--Pagano on Chapman) have hardly been the stuff of NFL legend. We do have a front office with a gift for phrasing things, however. If they start tossing around "caveman neckbeard" we can anticipate a down season for Luck.
