Breaking News

The Counselor is IN:

There have been a few important fantasy nuggets today.

1) Raiders sign - Jeff George out of retirement to play for them. It is unknown at this time what the plans are for George. We doubt that he will press Brooks for the starting job but it certainly is not an endorsement of Brooks. For now just know that the 38 year old attitude with a canon for an arm is back and he is on the same team with Randy Moss. Most interesting.

2) Donte' Stallworth is traded to the Eagles for an undisclosed draft pick and LB Mark Simoneau. The speculation is that Stallworth will start right away opposite of Reggie Brown. He is being thrown into a new offense and he is not the most consistent of players even if he knows what is going on. He could be a huge pick up for them or he could end up the same inconsistent Stallworth that has been playing for the Saints.

3) Kerry Collins signs with the Titans. We knew that this might be coming. This is also a sign that the Titans are not fully endorsing Volek. The rumors have the Titans trying to trade Volek. Volek went from a possible good #2 QB to totally off the radar.

4) The big news of the day: Gregg Jones is out for the season with a torn ACL. (I have had an ACL repair and it is no fun). Many people had high expectations for Jones. He was suppose to be splitting some time with Fred Taylor and would be his backup. Many believed that when Taylor gets hurt this season (as he always does) then Jones would take over the starting position and would not let it go. That is not going to happen this year. This does greatly increase the value of Maurice Drew. Drew can not be expected to be the miracle man for the Jags but he is a very solid back up to "Glass Legs" Taylor.
