As the free agency and salary cap situation grows more confusing by the day, at least one piece of league news makes perfect sense:

Alexander’s signing does now mean that Edgerrin James will be the most sought after free agent on the market. The Colts have stated the odds of keeping an Edge to their offense as 50/50.
