Big Names getting Big Deals pt. 2.

Dallas adds size and strength to their offensive line.

The Dallas Cowboys and offensive lineman Leonard Davis agreed to a deal worth $50 million over the next 7-years and would give Davis $18 million guaranteed. The offensive line was one of the Cowboy's biggest problem area coming into the offseason and adding the former #2 overall pick in 2001 will surely help keep Tony Romo on his feet. It still isn't known which position Davis will be playing in 2007, but whether it be a tackle or a guard. The Cowboys are currently working hard on trying to lock up Marc Colombo long term and if they do do that it is very likely that Davis will play right tackle.

Hey, I got another one right; Lions sign defensive end, Dwayne White.

Just a day after shipping DE James Hall to the St.Louis Rams for a 5th round pick, the Detroit lines signed one of the top defensive ends on the free-agent market. Although White has just 14 career sacks in his short career, he is expected by man to make a huge jump this season in his production and possibly even rack up double-digits in sacks this year. The deal is reportedly a 5-year $29 million. Dwayne White will definitely add some talent to a stale defensive line in Motown.

Travis Henry has become more popular in the past two days than my entire existence.

Recently released Travis Henry has been getting a lot of interest from many different teams over the past two days. Some teams that have contacted the resurgent runningback are the New York Jets, the Green Bay Packers, the New York Giants and the Denver Broncos. After having back-to-back disappointing seasons, Henry stormed back onto the scene with the Titans gaining 1200 yards and 7 touchdowns. All four of the teams interested in Henry have significant need at runningback, Green Bay released Ahman Green, Tiki Barber retired leaving the Giants searching for a replacement, Denver traded Tatum Bell and the Jets went with a RB by committee last year and it didn't really work out to say the least.
