Free agency has been underway for the past 48 hours, and already we’ve seen big-name players ink deals with new teams and the dominos beginning to fall for others. Rich Eisen welcomes back to the #REP Super Bowl XXXV-winning coach and friend of the program Brian Billick to talk about how a team approaches the free-agent frenzy period and get some insight into the behind-the-scenes dealings. Billick and Eisen also discuss which acquisitions could make the biggest impact in 2014 and where are the best landing spots for free agents who have yet to sign.
Next, Charles Davis dials in to discuss the latest news surrounding the 2014 NFL Draft class. For the past few weeks, we’ve been hearing about the “Big 3” at the quarterback position in Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles, but Davis thinks a fourth name is rising on draft boards and could shake things up on draft day. Eisen and Davis also discuss how some free agency moves, such as the Jacksonville Jaguars trading quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the San Francisco 49ers, will impact the draft.

Before getting to this latest episode, I’d like to take a moment to address all the kind words and congratulations sent in the direction of the podcast for passing the 10 million download mark. Speaking for producers Chris Law and Chris Brockman and everyone associated with the show from its near three-year history, I thank you all from the bottom of my heart. It truly has been a labor of love. Or, as our previous guest Larry David would say, it’s been a prettay, prettay, prettay good run.
And, on that note, I couldn’t think of a better guest to have on to begin the next 10 million downloads than Matt Damon. Other than being an Academy Award winning, Emmy nominated A-list actor, he’s also a fantastic regular guy. And you’ll hear that in the conversation on this show as he bemoans the loss of Wes Welker to the Denver Broncos and re-iterates his trust in Bill Belichick and Tom Brady just like every New England Patriots fan you’ve come across. Damon loves his Pats for sure, and he knows his stuff, too. His reaction to the addition of Tim Tebow and the New York Jets’ famous “Buttfumble” are not to be missed. Also not to be missed: his new movie “Elysium” in a theater near you. Go see it.
The show wraps up with a fun conversation with Brian Billick, the Super Bowl-winning coach of the 2000 Baltimore Ravens and NFL Network analyst. We go soup to nuts with Coach as Read

The day after calling the Jets-Cardinals game in the Meadowlands, coach Brian Billick dials in (with what sounds like a Zach Morris cell phone) to chat with Rich about the benching of Mark Sanchez in New York and what it means for the franchise moving forward.
