What has been the biggest head-scratching move?

lucky
Dan Graziano, national NFL writer: Allen Robinson, WR, Chicago Bears. A lot of what the Bears did seemed to fall into the "egregious overspend" basket. They guaranteed two years to kicker Cody Parkey, for goodness' sake. But the big one for them was Robinson, who is getting $15 million fully guaranteed this year and $3 million more fully guaranteed in 2019 after a season in which he tore his ACL in Week 1. Robinson was a very good player for Jacksonville three years ago, and it's possible the receiver market pushed his price this high, but it's an [url=http://www.panthersnflofficialauthentics.com/WOMENS-CURTIS-SAMUEL-JERSEY.html]Curtis Samuel Jersey[/url] eye-popper either way.

KC Joyner, NFL writer: Sheldon Richardson, DT, [url=http://www.officialcardinalsfootballauthentic.com/Evan-Boehm-Jersey.html]http://www.officialcardinalsfootballauthentic.com/Evan-Boehm-Jersey.html[/url] Minnesota Vikings. Over the past two seasons, Richardson ranked 139th among defensive linemen in ESPN Stats & Information's disrupted dropback percentage metric. Rewarding this caliber of production with a one-year, $8 million deal is the definition of head-scratching.

Mike Sando, senior NFL writer: Weston Richburg, C, San Francisco 49ers. Nothing against Richburg, who could be a good addition. The move was a head-scratcher because it forced out Daniel Kilgore, whom the team signed to an extension last month, holding him up to the rest of the locker room as a leader and building-block player.
Aaron Schatz, [url=http://www.official76ershop.com/authentic-6-julius-erving-jersey.html]Julius Erving Womens Jersey[/url] editor-in-chief of Football Outsiders: Danny Amendola, WR, Miami Dolphins. How do you give $12 million over two years to your fourth wide receiver? Do you know how often a team actually gets real usage out of four receivers? Last year, only two teams had more than 30 receptions from four different wide receivers (Oakland and Tampa Bay), and only four other teams had more than 21 receptions from four different wide receivers. The signing will [url=http://www.authenticbluejacketsstore.com/-23-david-clarkson-jersey_c-439.html]http://www.authenticbluejacketsstore.com/-23-david-clarkson-jersey_c-439.html[/url] look better if one of the other wide receivers suffers a serious injury, but in general, WR4 is a position you fill with a mid-round draft pick.
Field Yates, NFL Insider: Miami's composite offseason. Where, exactly, are the Dolphins heading? The team seems to devise a blueprint before abruptly scratching said blueprint within a few years. While the value of culture cannot be overlooked within an NFL team, it's hard to say what the Dolphins are angling toward. True blue-chip talent departed this offseason in Ndamukong Suh (cut), Mike Pouncey (cut) and Jarvis Landry (traded), and while Miami spent aggressively at some spots (such as wide receiver), the team doesn't strike me as improved at this point.
Graziano: The Colts' trade with the Jets for three extra picks to [url=http://www.officialpiratestore.com/authentic-39-dave-parker-jersey.html]http://www.officialpiratestore.com/authentic-39-dave-parker-jersey.html[/url] move down in the draft. Disclaimer: I don't tend to like free-agent signings very much. They leave me cold. For instance, Nate Solder was a signing that will help the Giants, but the cost was insane. Trumaine Johnson improves the Jets, but they spent so much. Same is true for Kirk Cousins, Jerick McKinnon or basically any of the Bears' moves. So let's tip the cap here to the Colts, who badly need to reconstruct their roster depth and just added three second-round picks (two this year, one next) by moving down only three spots at the top of the first round. Nice to have the third overall pick and not need a quarterback.
Joyner: The Vikings signing Kirk Cousins. Famed Giants general manager Ernie Accorsi once said there is no price that is too high to pay for a franchise quarterback, so forget the big price tag for Cousins. Only Drew Brees, Tom Brady and Matt Ryan have posted a higher total for yards per attempt on vertical passes (aerials thrown 11 or more yards downfield) than Cousins over the past two years. This downfield prowess could be the push Minnesota needs to get back to the Super Bowl.
Sando: The Saints re-signing Drew Brees. With much of the focus on Cousins commanding a guaranteed contract, New Orleans retained a future Hall of Fame QB under team-friendly terms, freeing up resources to address other areas. Schatz: The Colts' trade with the Jets. The Jets overpaid even on the traditional draft value chart, and they massively overpaid according to any modern analytical draft value chart. And given the need for quarterbacks at the top of the draft, that No. 6 pick will still turn into Bradley Chubb, Saquon Barkley or Quenton Nelson -- the same players the Colts would have been choosing among at No. 3.
Yates: The Rams trading for Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib. In a time when cornerbacks are coveted and paid substantially [url=http://www.officialwarriorsteamshop.com/Authentic-Damian-Jones-Jersey]Damian Jones Jersey[/url] on the open market, Los Angeles acquired a pair of potential Pro Bowlers for modest draft-pick compensation commensurate with their on-field abilities. While each has had some combustible moments on the field, the talent is undeniable and the Rams are confident such behavior won't repeat itself in L.A.
PUNTA CANA, Dominican Republic -- Tony Romo fell apart on the back nine and made his PGA Tour debut with a 5-over 77 in the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship. The former Dallas Cowboys quarterback shot even par on the front nine before a bad stretch of three bogeys and a double-bogey toward the end of his round. He was [url=http://www.officialpacershop.com/authentic-31-reggie-miller-jersey.html]Reggie Miller Womens Jersey[/url] 14 shots behind Brice Garnett, the early leader, who opened with a 63.
Romo started his round off with back-to-back bogeys on the first two holes but then made birdies on Nos. 4 and 5. He answered a bogey at No. 7 with a birdie on No. 8 and finished the front nine at even par. To start his back nine, Romo made a putt of at least 25 feet to make par but had difficulties on holes Nos. 13-16. Romo missed the fairway on four straight tee shots, taking -- but not needing -- two provisional shots on Nos. 15 and 16 only to find his original shot. He parred his final two holes, coming up short on birdie attempts both times.
