Assuming that the order we need to announce our keepers here is the same order that the pre-draft will occur, then:

If Captain Ned sticks to this:

For the moment I'm semi-settled on Big Ben, Brandon Jacobs, and Tony Gonzalez.


Then I will keep just 1.Andre Johnson and 2.Adrian Peterson and 3.take one pre-draft pick.

If Ned says he isn't going to keep 3 players, then I may change my mind.

REMINDER: ONE WEEK AWAY for the "who are you keeping" deadline.

I'll be posting right before the deadline, partly to keep people guessing and partly because I hate all these stiffs

I didn't know we're publicly announcing this stuff.. :) I thought it was all a mystery...

Anyway, my only keeper for sure in Maurice Jones Drew... Not sure about anyone else.. I need to think on whether I want to keep T.O.

You are absolutely correct... unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to get Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Smith, Andre Johnson, or Randy Moss :P

You might be able to pick up Boldin in the pre-draft rounds. He was on my team, but I had three guys I want to keep more, sad to say. You've got a shot.

That stills leaves Roddy White, Calvin Johnson, and Reggie Wayne who are all likely to have a better season than T.O. Of course T.0. would be a great second receiver.

Keeping:

Michael Turner (RB - ATL)
Chris Johnson (RB - TEN)
Reggie Wayne (WR - IND)

This was the hardest year yet for me on who to keep. Most years I wait until the last minute to gleam who's available in the pre-draft. This year I couldn't get down to three players. I'd have been happy keeping the entire team.

Most people seem fairly decisive this year.

now that I've made my pick, when I was looking over the rosters the other day, I read them 3 times looking for Michael Turner. I couldn' find him and thought that someone must have made an awful mistake. When neither Frobozz nor druidcent took him I was like wtf did he die and I missed it or something? So tonight I read real careful again and I finally found him :oops:

I would have jumped off a building if I had missed Turner :)

Anyway, here's to hoping no one gets injured.. The draft is Sept. 2 right?
