[Ed.Note- This is a good reminder that the NFL owners are not necessarily on the smae page in terms of the value of a lockout.

NFP Sunday Blitz | National Football Post
But acquiring talent alone only gets a team so far. The team has to put the pieces together, have a vision and be committed to the vision. The general manager’s job is also about making sure everyone is on the same page and working together toward the same goal. It’s keeping people from drifting. It’s putting out fires.

I hope both decide to participate at the Combine next month. There are two groups of wide receivers at the Combine, with an equal number of players in each group. They are grouped alphabetically so both Jones and Green will most likely be in the same group.
