Mustard Signed; Professor Plum Still Without a Contract
If you're a Falcons fan who has four really bad fantasy football teams (combined record of all teams, Falcons included: 8-27), there hasn't been much to cheer for this fall. In fact, if the devil himself (represented by diabolical guitarist Steve Vai in the movie Crossroads) approached you with a deal through which you could erase all of your fantasy teams (and the Falcons), but doing so would cost you the past two months of your life, you would at least have to ponder it (yes, having bad fantasy teams really does suck that badly).

The Broncos signed a dude named Chad Mustard.

Sorry Mr. Vai -- no deal.
