Goooooooooooooood morning, everyone. I hope your week has started strong you’re all feeling right as rain on this Tuesday morning.

We can all breathe a sign of relief now that the team has officially announced the signing of Bryan Bulaga, Linval Joseph, Chris Harris, and Nick Vigil. With the recent reports of the Ravens not signing Michael Brockers and the Jaguars not signing Darqueze Dennard, I started to worry about at least one of these signings falling through for one reason or another.

Could you imagine if Bulaga bounced after failing a physical? There would be a riot. Thank goodness we don’t have to deal with that.

Enjoy the links and have a great Tuesday.
