    Chris Polk would be a nice RB to pick up:

    Summary:
    A competitive, productive, upright, strong-bodied runner, Polk wears on defenses and is one of the best receiving backs in the country. Has the size, instincts, stamina and versatility to handle a starting workload, but has to earn trust as a pass protector.

    The UDFA is a one-hour frenzy of signing, began the moment the last pick went off the board. I posted a good truncated story on this on fan zone a few hours ago.

    We have $75,000 in bonuses total which go quick. Agents have a few breaths to take the deal or leave it for their client.

    All hands and phones on deck at Valley Ranch at the moment. Craziness. .. We'll give you a $5K bonus for your player, but we have another guy on line to give it to, we need to know in about five minutes. That's what's going on right now.

    With the new limit on bonuses, plus the 90-man roster extension, lots of players will get no bonus or maybe $500. I guess we try to figure local guys that might take no bonus just to drive a few miles and play for us.

    I don't know of any hip injury unless you mean tight hips which sounds like an evaluation term, not an injury term.

    That low bonus limit really sucks; hurts the kids that need the most help.

    Wonder who put that in the CBA?
