Sign one, release two? Seems to me there is likely another signing imminent.

Neo, my guess is it's either Jarmon or they are planning to bring in another FA. I think Orakpo's deal will happen either the day before or the day of the start of Training Camp.

Makes sense. You would think that Jarmon should be relatively quick, being at the third round pay scale also.

Even if Orakpo is planning on making sure he's in camp on day one it doesn't make any sense for him to sign yet, with only two first rounders signed at this point.

the release of Williams is no surprise. all he had to offer was a 6'5 and 237 frame. no wide receiver skills - poor hands and route running and a history of indifferent work habits.

I would not be surprised to see Williams try and reinvent himself as a tight end in the NFL. If he gained 10 pounds and could show decent skills developed over time on a team's PS he could be a candidate there.
