I can't believe this but in an article on NFL.com at http://www.nfl.com/news/story;jsessionid=F5CA288464D80A79AAEF0B98A915E47A? id=09000d5d80874d86&template=with-video&confirm=true
it says:
What's in a name?

It seemingly got lost in the hoopla surrounding the Falcons signing their first-round pick, Matt Ryan to a rookie record six-year, $72 million contract. But earlier this week, Atlanta signed Tony Gonzalez and Jamal Lewis.

Rarely does a team get to sign two players as notable and prolific as that on the same day. But Atlanta did.

There is NO possible way this is serious. If you go to the player's pages it says they're still on their old teams, and if either of those players were a free agent, there would have been so much talk about where they might go! I'm incredulous right now.

Sorry guys should have read the whole article :O

Too bad for the Falcons that Gonzalez is the undrafted free agent wide receiver who played with Ryan at Boston College, and Lewis is the undrafted free agent safety who played at Georgia Tech.

Sad thing is, even if it were true they probably would still finish near the bottom.......

Kansas City turned their back on the greatest player to ever wear one of their jerseys....why??

You've gotta give it to Atlanta for replacing departed Crumpler, but I'm more shocked at KC letting him go than Atlant landing him.

As for Jamal Lewis, he solidifies another '1-2' punch in the backfield that just about every NFL team seems to have at this point. Kinda glad too, it's hard to root for the guy when he's wearing a Baltimore or Cleveland jersey ;)

I think that the falcons will be better this season myself. They are young and that is gonna make it hard to win games, but they will improve with experience

At first I thought it was the KC TE and the Bal RB. Makes more sense that it is some undrafted free agents that coincidently had high profile names in the NFL.

I agree he has had some good games against us but that year he was doing so good we shut him down to almost nothing.

lol y in the world would KC give up its best and most consistent offensive weapon since len dawson...

PLUS

why would cleveland go from an F offseason to an even worse F by releasing their only running threat?
