M.C. Hammer to the Rescue!

It’s been a weird couple days in the NFL.  Here are a few stories that are making the rounds, each of them a head-scratcher: Rookie WR Michael Crabtree, after spending significant time away from San Francisco, finally signed a six-year contract with the 49ers.  If he has two outstanding years in his first four, the contract evolves into a five-year deal.  The weird part of all this?  M.C. Hammer was apparently present during negotiations.  Yes, really, that M.C. Hammer.

It’s been a weird couple days in the NFL.  Here are a few stories that are making the rounds, each of them a head-scratcher:

  • Rookie WR Michael Crabtree, after spending significant time away from San Francisco, finally signed a six-year contract with the 49ers.  If he has two outstanding years in his first four, the contract evolves into a five-year deal.  The weird part of all this?  M.C. Hammer was apparently present during negotiations.  Yes, really, that M.C. Hammer.
  • Eric Mangini, not content with causing internal strife in the locker room by playing the “who’s my QB today?” game, has traded away the team’s top receiver to the NY Jets.  In exchange for shipping Braylon Edwards and his questionable hands to the Big Apple, the Browns get Week 1 AFC Special Teams Player of the Week Jason Trusnik, WR Chansi Stuckey, and several draft picks (including a 3rd that could become a 2nd if Edwards has a bazillion catches this year).  For those wondering who we'll see in the Oct. 25 Packers-Browns game, Stuckey lined up as #2 opposite Jerricho Cotchery and has 11 catches, 120 yds, and 1 TD through Week 4.  The trade could be good news for Stuckey, who apparently has had trouble getting on the same page as Jets QB Mark Sanchez, and would be competing for the #1 job in Cleveland.
  • Rush Limbaugh has made a bid to buy the St. Louis Rams, who now lead the league with a 14-game losing streak and have been shut out twice in 4 games.  No, I’m not kidding.  Could the arch-conservative radio host be the missing piece that the team needs to pick itself up off the floor of the league’s rankings?  I’m imagining that there would at least be a shake-up in the game commentating booth…

The Packers are on a bye, so there is no “Opposition Research” this week.
