Warriors in the Pros

Isaac Sopoaga just signed a big contract with the 49ers.
The team Tuesday agreed to terms on a five-year deal with Isaac Sopoaga, the powerful Samoan who can play nose tackle and defensive end in the 3-4 scheme. Sopoaga, 26, was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at 9 p.m. Thursday.
Zuckerman declined to divulge terms of the deal. However, it likely is similar to the five-year, $20.5 million deal Dallas gave nose tackle Jay Ratliff last season. Ratliff also got $8 million to sign.
Travis Laboy may test the free agent market.
"The difference in what the Titans are offering and what the market is dictating, it is a lot different,'' said C.J. LaBoy, who represents his brother.

"I wouldn't be surprised if the Titans don't have either of them back next year.''

Travis LaBoy, who had six sacks last season, is looking for more money and more playing time.

"And the way it is being portrayed to us, I'm not sure Tennessee sees him that way,'' C.J. LaBoy said.
Samson Satele impressed in 2007 and it looks like the Dolphins are rebuilding the offensive line around him.
It is believed Parcells likes Satele's potential, as he provides a strong nucleus to build around.

Houck said he was very impressed with Satele's progress last season, and he expects the player to get even better next season.

''He can be a tremendous player,'' Houck said. ``He could be a good player at center or guard, either one. I think they did a good job of drafting that guy. He's got a great attitude. We put him in a very tough situation. Playing center as a rookie is a hard job.

``He made a lot of strides this year, but I think he'll really make even more next year.''

    Awesome stuff Tombo. You deserve the award for keeping up with the stuff in the down time of off season. Good to hear that the NFL guys are doing good. Hopefully, that gives Mac some good things to say about a Hawaii pipeline to the pros. Would make it even more sweet if the entire Fab 5 get drafted. I think they should.
