The Dolphins reportedly have "zero" chance of re-signing NT Paul Soliai before the onset of free agency in March.

Soliai wants to cash in on his breakout second half, which makes it nearly impossible for an extension with the "30 percent" rule in effect. Soliai's camp is expecting a "free-for-all" once he hits the open market. As a run-plugging 350-pounder, he'll be in high demand among teams running 3-4 schemes.

Coach Mike McCarthy was noncommittal Wednesday when asked whether the Packers would re-sign free agent RE Cullen Jenkins.

McCarthy spoke in the past tense when saying he "really enjoyed coaching Cullen," and hinted that the Packers tired of Jenkins' constant nagging injuries. "He has been an extremely productive and premier player, especially when he is healthy," said McCarthy. Jenkins is a dynamic pass rusher at 100 percent, but he has missed 17 games over the past three seasons.

Though the San Francisco Chronicle has reported that Richard Seymour will be slapped with the franchise tag, NFL Network's Jason LaCanfora expects the Raiders to use the tag on TE Zach Miller.

The Chronicle and LaCanfora are both citing sources. The Raiders may end up using both the franchise and the transition tag. If they do plan to franchise Miller, there's a good chance they will lock up Seymour to a long-term deal. Miller, the most valuable member of the Oakland passing game, just turned 25 years old after four years in the NFL. It would be far less expensive to franchise a tight end than a defensive end.

Last year, former NFL scout and ESPN employee Jeremy Green was arrested for possession of child pornography, along with drug-related charges. Green has now pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography, according to the Hartford Courant.

During a two-hour online chat in June 2010, Green allegedly sent “sexually explicit photos and videos of a toddler” to an undercover officer using the screen name ‘lendingmom12,’ and Green allegedly said he couldn’t wait for her to bring her three children to Connecticut.
http://nbcprofootballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/jeremy-green.jpg?w=172
The arrest warrant states that Green sent the undercover officer “17 pictures of a toddler, two videos of a toddler and one video of an 8-year-old girl.”

Green, the son of former Vikings coach, former Cardinals coach, and current Sacramento Mountain Lions coach Dennis Green, is expected to receive a sentence of 20 years in prison, suspended after five. Jeremy Green worked for the Browns before joining ESPN.

The New England Patriots officially placed their franchise tag on Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins on Monday, according to a league source.

Mankins is the first player to be designated a team's franchise player this offseason. The franchise tag binds Mankins to the Patriots for one year.

The projected contract for a franchised offensive lineman is $10.1 million, down from $10.7 million last season.

Mankins, 28, was a first-round draft pick of the Patriots in 2005. He has been to three Pro Bowls, including this year.

The Philadelphia Eagles placed their franchise tag on Michael Vick on Tuesday, the team announced.

In addition, the Eagles announced that they have placed the transition tag on kicker David Akers. Under rules of the past collective bargaining agreement, the transition tag allowed teams to match any offer given to the designated player in free agency. It is uncertain if franchise and transition tags will be part of the next CBA.

ESPN.com reported last month that the Eagles would franchise Vick. If franchise tags are upheld, the move will tie Vick to Philadelphia for the 2011 season and put the Eagles in a better position to potentially trade Kevin Kolb, who wants to start somewhere next season.

Logan Mankins received the New England Patriots' franchise tag on Monday. But no players are expected to sign franchise tags while the NFLPA challenges their validity.

"I've been thinking about coaching for quite a long time," he told "NFL Total Access." "I was offered a job when I first retired seven years ago, but after spending 17 years in the league, I wasn't ready to do it then. The last couple years, I've been thinking about it, talking to all my guys and friends who are coaching in the league, and I talked to (Raiders owner Al) Davis, and I talked to Hue (Jackson, the team's new head coach), and I was offered the job.

"I just didn't want to pass it up. I didn't want to live my life in regret, not having the opportunity -- or at least taking the opportunity to try this thing out. ... So I'm going to give it a shot and see how it works out."

Jim Zorn was fired by the Ravens after the 2010 season. The team that lost at home to the Ravens in the playoffs apparently was impressed with his work.

We’re hearing that Zorn will be joining the Kansas City Chiefs.

Zorn presumably will fill the currently vacant role of quarterbacks coach, serving as the primary buffer between quarterback Matt Cassel and coach Todd Haley.

Whether and to what extent Zorn — or anyone, for that matter — can coexist with Haley remains to be seen.

UPDATE: And it’s official. The Chiefs have announced that he’ll be the quarterbacks coach.

Richard Seymour agrees to new contract with Raiders

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/02/16/richard-seymour-agrees-to-new-contract-with-raiders/

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 16, 2011, 11:39 AM EST


Richard Seymour is sticking with the Oakland Raiders.

Seymour, the defensive tackle whose contract expired at the end of the 2010 season, has agreed to a new contract with the Raiders, according to multiple reports.

The terms of the new contract are not yet known. Jim Trotter of SI.com reports that it’s a two-year deal with $22.5 million in guarantees and the potential to make $30 million. But Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that it’s a four-year deal.

Seymour has said he expects to remain in Oakland and this deal appears to fulfill that expectation. It also means the Raiders won’t need to use the franchise tag to hold onto Seymour. Oakland may now use the franchise tag on tight end Zach Miller.

The Raiders acquired Seymour in a trade with the Patriots before the 2009 season. New England reaceived Oakland’s first-round pick (No. 17 overall) in this year’s NFL draft.

Texans waived DT DeMario Pressley.

Pressley is a low-end three-technique prospect for 4-3 teams, so he never had a shot to stick when Houston switched to a 3-4. The 25-year-old may draw a bit of interest on waivers from teams desperate for an interior pass rusher.



Feb 18, 4:47 PM


Texans released WR Andre' Davis.

Davis turns 32 in June and missed all of the 2010 season with a tailbone injury, so he never had a fighting chance to see his projected 2011 salary of $4.7 million. Davis was once one of the NFL's top special teamers and a viable situational deep threat, but he may struggle to find a home in free agency.

Unlike most unrestricted free agents, Atogwe doesn't have to wait for a new CBA to sign elsewhere. He also turns 30 this summer, and won't have many more chances like this to hit it big.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the Ravens have decided to release Willis McGahee.

The decision was reportedly made at the Ravens' recent personnel evaluation meetings. McGahee, entering his age-30 season, is due a $6 million salary in 2011, and the remaining years on his contract are optional. The move is expected sometime after the owners and players finalize a new CBA. The Sun's Mike Preston suggests that the Ravens could re-sign McGahee for less money after cutting him, but he's likely to pursue the best contract possible.

Agreed. Ball and Buck looked much better at the end of the season with Tebow as a dual threat. The wildcard in this is that it's unknown if the teams can signed UDFA's after the draft due to CBA restrictions. If so, I would be fine going after a UDFA or two, and just grabbing a TE or a FB right now.

Panthers extended restricted free agent tenders to DeAngelo Williams and DE Charles Johnson.

Whether the tenders mean anything will be determined by the new CBA, and we'd bet heavily against them being binding. Williams is a five-year veteran, while Johnson has four accrued seasons. The tenders will only restrict the players' free agency if the next agreement goes against the NFL's tradition of restricting only three-year players. Four- and five-year vets should all be unrestricted. It's complicated and boring, we know. The bottom line is that these tenders are much more bark than bite.

"Not at this point," said Jenkins of a potential return. "You get to a point where you want to go where you feel you're wanted. The way everything came down, it's just time for a new start." The Packers played nickel on more than 70 percent of their snaps last year, which limited Jenkins' role. He'll garner plenty of interest from 3-4 teams on the open market.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's Mike Triplett does not expect the Saints to release Reggie Bush before the end of the league year on March 4.

"From all indications, they'll wait and work on possible extension or restructure," explains Triplett. Bush understands the Saints aren't going to pay his $11.8 million base salary, and both sides seem amenable to meeting in the middle. The Saints will have to offer guaranteed money and long-term security while Bush must realize he's not going to break the bank as an injury-prone role player.

Stanford Routt's three-year deal is worth $31.5 million, including $20 million over the first two years.

You read that correctly. No team in the league values Routt as highly as the Raiders. They managed to drastically overpay even though they were essentially bidding against themselves. Routt is a versatile corner sporting an impressive catch rate last season, but it's laughable to hand him two-thirds of Nnamdi Asomugha's salary.

Clinton Portis: Redskins release coming today

Posted by Michael David Smith on February 28, 2011, 12:10 PM EST

Clinton Portis says today is his last day as a member of the Washington Redskins.

“I should be released today,” Portis said on 106.7 The Fan Monday morning, via Ryan O’Halloran of CSNwashington.com. “It was a decision that was best for the both of us.”

The end comes for Portis after a 2010 season in which he played just five games and ran for a career-low 227 yards. Portis, who turns 30 in September, said he understands the NFL is a business and the Redskins simply decided he wasn’t worth the $8.3 million he would have been due during the 2011 season.

Pats signed Marcus Stroud to 2 year deal....

The Patriots have signed veteran defensive tackle Marcus Stroud (http://www.nfl.com/players/profile?id=STR710888) to a two-year contract, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter this afternoon.
Stroud, a 10-year veteran and three-time Pro Bowl selection, was recently released by the Bills after three seasons in Buffalo. It is because he was released by the Bills -- and not scheduled to become a free agent due to an expired contract -- that the Pats were able to sign him. Teams have until 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, the time the current CBA expires, to sign players that have been released by other clubs or re-sign their own free agents.

Report: Carson Palmer claims he’ll never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/03/01/report-carson-palmer-claims-hell-never-set-foot-in-paul-brown-stadium-again/

As the Bengals continue to kick tires on possible quarterback prospects, it’s becoming more clear that Carson Palmer won’t be playing the position (or any other) for the team in 2011 or beyond.

Dennis Janson of WCPO-TV in Cincinnati reports that Palmer recently told a confidant, “I will never set foot in Paul Brown Stadium again.” (Of course, if Palmer plays for a team that plays at the Bengals, then he will.)

Palmer reportedly added: “I have $80 million in the bank. I don’t have to play football for money. I’ll play it for the love of the game but that would have to be elsewhere. I’m prepared to live my life.”

The fact that the dispute between player and team went public shows that Palmer is serious about leaving. The sooner the Bengals realize that and trade him for whatever they can get, the better off everyone will be.

That said, they can’t trade him until the next league year begins, and the next league year most likely won’t begin until the labor situation is resolved.

Meanwhile, the only other quarterbacks on the roster are Jordan Palmer and Dan LeFevour.

Bob Sanders bolts for the Bolts

After safety Bob Sanders was cut by the Colts, former Indy coach Tony Dungy suggested that Sanders possibly would return to the team after exploring the open market.

As it turns out, Sanders liked what he saw on the open market.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Sanders has signed a one-year deal with the Chargers.

Sanders also had visited the Jets, Bills, and Jaguars.

San Diego has had Indy’s number for years, and Sanders now brings inside information and, if healthy, a high degree of ability. Though the Chargers won’t face the Colts during the 2011 regular season, Sanders could get a shot at his former team in the postseason.

If there’s a postseason.

The Raiders tendered one-year contracts to tight end Zach Miller and running back Michael Bush, their top two free agents.

Bush and Miller received restricted first- and third-round tenders, which were worth $3.168 million last season. It remains to be seen what the new figure will be because the league and the players have yet to work out a new collective bargaining agreement.

Bush and Miller are four-year players who earned less than $1 million each last season. Miller has led the Raiders in receiving each of his four NFL seasons. Bush has solidified himself as the primary backup to Darren McFadden.

Inside linebacker Stephen Cooper has started 55 games over the past four seasons, more than any Chargers defender besides Quentin Jammer and Shaun Phillips.

He has come a long way in eight years since signing with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Maine -- from longshot to special teamer to backup to mainstay.

His run is likely over. It hasn't been made official, but he knows it.

"I think I'm going to have an opportunity to test the market," Cooper said Saturday.

Cooper has been rehabbing two sprained knees, which he played through for 11 games in 2010, including a masterful performance in the Chargers' Nov. 28 victory at Indianapolis. He said he is "excited" for the opportunity.

The Chargers are, likewise, excited to give Donald Butler a shot at a starting job after he missed his rookie season with a torn Achilles'. And they will likely make a strong run at keeping Kevin Burnett, who will also be an unrestricted free agent. http://www.signonsandiego.com/news/2011/mar/05/cooper-figures-hes-gone/#

Those guys aren't RFAs are they? I'm not talking about franchise tags, but RFA tenders. These guys are going to be unrestricted FAs once the CBA is worked out and are getting offers for way below market value with the RFA tenders.

Well yeah, but multi-year contracts are fairly common occurrences after a player signs their tender.

That way both parties get what they want. This year is just all messed up because of the new CBA.

It was absolutely mystifying to me last season watching the Bears and seeing them NOT go to Olsen more.

A police statement on Tuesday says officers working off-duty on Saturday as security at NorthPark Center encountered Bryant and three companions wearing the drooping pants.

According to the statement, when the officers asked the four to pull up their trousers, Bryant launched into a profanity-laced tirade that prompted the officers to escort the four from the mall.
Police say Bryant refused to leave, however, until his “representative” could arrive and he parked in a fire lane until a friend arrived and persuaded him to leave.
No charge was filed. Bryant’s agent, Eugene Parker, declined to comment. The Dallas Cowboys did not respond to requests for comment.

I don't really like Dez Bryant, but really? Is it security's job to tell people to pull up their pants?

Obviously an upscale mall and the dress of he and his entourage was inappropriate. More telling, though, is his reaction. I agree with Drunk Monkey - tick, tick, tick with this kid.

Heard Sal Paolantonio on the Phila ESPN Radio affiliate yesterday afternoon. He speculated that Seattle was willing to trade their 1st round pick (the 26th I think?) to the Eagles for Kevin Kolb. But it's very possible that they won't be able to make a deal before the draft, similar to Denver's situation with Orton.

Texas police have issued felony warrants for the arrests of Bucs CB Aqib Talib and his mother, Okolo Talib.

Talib could face 2 to 20 years in prison after he turns himself in for the second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. A grand jury will hear the case in 4-6 weeks, though it could be months before it goes to trial. The Bucs cannot release players during the lockout. The more pressing issue for Talib is the very real prospect of prison time.

Jets QB Erik Ainge, currently on the reserved/non-football illness list, recently disclosed that he was a "really bad drug addict," escalating from marijuana to prescription meds, alcohol, cocaine and even heroin.

"I would've made Charlie Sheen look like Miss Daisy," said Ainge. His drug abuse began with a bong hit at age 12. Ainge, who has also been diagnosed as bipolar, disappeared for a month in the spring of 2009 to attend a detox center. He ended up sitting out the 2010 season because he went on a "two-week bender" before training camp. Realizing he had hit rock bottom, Ainge checked himself into a rehab clinic last July and has been clean since. Ainge concedes that his football future remains "uncertain." We wouldn't bank on seeing him in a Jets uniform ever again.

Former Chiefs RB Larry Johnson is currently being sued in a Kansas City court for allegedly spitting on a woman in a bar in 2008.

The suit isn't new, but attorney Jack T. Bangert (for real) is arguing Johnson has become so hated in Kansas City that he can't get a fair jury. "If we can’t get a change of venue ... it is insurmountable," Bangert said. "We want to go anywhere but here." L.J. is hated in K.C. because his play fell to pieces immediately after Carl Peterson signed him to a monster contract, and his disturbing treatment of women was well documented by the media.

Chad Pennington tears ACL playing basketball

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/03/31/chad-pennington-tears-acl-playing-basketball/

Chad Pennington’s run of awful luck continues.

He’s been rehabbing his surgically-repaired shoulder with hopes of making another NFL comeback. That plan will be put on hold after he tore his ACL playing pickup basketball, according to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.

Pennington will undergo surgery on April 7. It’s hard to imagine him coming back from this latest injury in addition to the shoulder issues, but we’ve counted him out too quickly before.

SI’s Peter King believed Pennington may have wound up finding a starting job in 2011 because he could step in to a new system without much practice and be ready to go. Unfortunately, that won’t happen now.

Broncos VP of Player Personnel John Elway is hoping to get Demaryius Thomas (Achilles surgery) back "halfway" through next season.

The initial response was more optimistic, even if it was never realistic. Elway's statement is confirmation that the Broncos are planning to have Thomas start the season on the PUP list. They can't count on a major contribution until around Thanksgiving. Even then, it's going to be a challenge to keep Thomas healthy and effective.

According to ESPN's John Clayton, the players offered to return to the bargaining table for a week of talks on March 28 only to be turned down by the owners.

The NFL refuses to negotiate unless the trade association recertifies as a union. The owners have publicly pushed for a resumption of talks, but their lack of follow-up suggests a newborn confidence after Judge Nelson replaced the union-friendly Judge Doty for the April 6 injunction hearing. If Nelson fails to grant the injunction, the leverage swings heavily to the owners' side.

Raiders WR Louis Murphy was reportedly arrested Sunday morning for possession of Viagra without a valid prescription, failure to obey an officer, and non-violent resisting arrest.

All three charges are misdemeanors. Murphy was pulled over for a loud stereo, first ignoring the officer then refusing to show ID or put his hands behind his back. It was until after Murphy consented to a vehicle search that officers found 11 Viagra pills in a bottle with the label torn off because the receiver didn't want his girlfriend to know his performance was artificially enhanced. Murphy was also arrested back in 2006 for marijuana possession.

Beat writer Tom Silverstein says that the Packers are likely to lose third-down back Brandon Jackson in free agency.


Jackson has four years of service and is likely to become an unrestricted free agent once a new CBA is reached. While the Packers have been very committed to Jackson as someone that excels in blitz pickup and as a receiver out of the backfield, they can't retain everyone. James Starks has a chance to step into the third-down role if Jackson moves on.

Goodell confirms NFL will insist on HGH testing

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/04/04/goodell-confirms-nfl-will-insist-on-hgh-testing/

When it comes to testing players for human growth hormone, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says there’s no room for debate: HGH tests have to be part of the next Collective Bargaining Agreement.

“The integrity of the NFL is critical,” Goodell said, per Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun. “We have to make sure that we’re doing everything possible to have the best drug program in sports. Making changes to our program is critical. We have done that over the years and we have to do more, including the inclusion of HGH testing.”

Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com previously reported that the league would insist on HGH testing, and Goodell’s latest comments confirm that the league believes it’s time to add HGH testing to the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

However, it remains to be seen how hard the players will fight such testing. Scientists still haven’t developed reliable urine testing for HGH, and the players say they’re opposed to any requirement that they have blood drawn to be tested for illicit substances.

In that respect, the players in the NFL differ from the players in the Canadian Football League. As Albert Breer of NFL Network reported, the CFL players have been fully supportive of that league’s performance-enhancing drug testing program, which includes blood testing for HGH.

For his part, Goodell says testing for HGH is the only way for the league to stay ahead of cheaters.

“We would be naďve to think that people aren’t going to cheat the system,” Goodell said. “But we have to have the best drug testing program to be able to offset it.”

There are a lot of positive benefits of HGH and other performance enhancers when taken under proper medical supervision.

It's when players take them without proper guidance and supervision that they become dangerous.

When used properly, there are great benefits that can be attained from their use.

When I get older, I'll start taking some HGH....lots of positive benefits if you can afford it when you get older.

According to the NFL, the league is again changing its concussions policy due to the Eagles' handling of Stewart Bradley during a game last season after he was clearly concussed.

"Had that not happened, we may not have had the NFL sideline examination [for concussions]," said NFL official Richard Ellenbogen. Bradley was allowed back into the Eagles' season opener after suffering an early concussion, and staggered through a couple of snaps before being removed permanently. The sideline concussion exam has now been standardized in the NFL.

According to Bill Huber of Packer Report, Colin Kaepernick's recent draft invite was sent by the league after "several teams" told the NFL he is the top rated quarterback on their boards.

Huber is insistent about this information, citing "someone who knows" and presumably handles invites to Radio City Music Hall. Profootballtalk.com has confirmed that at least one AFC West team (believed to be the Raiders, Chiefs, OR Broncos) definitely has Kaepernick rated as the draft's top quarterback. With ideal size, arm strength, athleticism, and intangibles, it probably shouldn't surprise anyone if Kaepernick is a first-round pick.

Heckert was asked Thursday about McCoy hosting some teammates for workouts in Austin, Texas. Heckert said at a press conference about next week’s draft that “it’s great” the players are fine tuning their skills during the league’s labor dispute.

Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9314/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9314/news) wrote on his Twitter page that he’d be in Austin with McCoy and teammates Josh Cribbs, Carlton Mitchell (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24153/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24153/news), Jordan Norwood (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9705/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9705/news) and “the rest of my Browns brothers!”
Players are not permitted to work out at team facilities during the lockout, which began on March 11.

Heckert was asked Thursday about McCoy hosting some teammates for workouts in Austin, Texas. Heckert said at a press conference about next week’s draft that “it’s great” the players are fine tuning their skills during the league’s labor dispute.

Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9314/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9314/news) wrote on his Twitter page that he’d be in Austin with McCoy and teammates Josh Cribbs, Carlton Mitchell (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24153/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/24153/news), Jordan Norwood (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9705/)(notes) (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/9705/news) and “the rest of my Browns brothers!”
Players are not permitted to work out at team facilities during the lockout, which began on March 11.



Not that I care about the Browns but it kinda bothers me that we are not seeing anything like this from the Bronco's. Or if they are I missed it. It's up to Orton to organize and who knows if he cares enough anymore with his situation somewhat up in the air. Tebow doing it would be stepping on toes.
I can't find the link but Tebow and a bunch of the young receivers are working out together. The union has asked the players it doesn't represent anymore to continue to work and stay in football shape in case they win their case and there is an injunction against the lockout.

Zbikowski moves his boxing record to 4-0

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/04/24/zbikowski-moves-his-boxing-record-to-4-0/

Ravens safety Tom Zbikowski, who unlike Pats receiver Wes Welker isn’t happily sitting on his ass during the lockout, spent Saturday night putting a boxer named Blake Warner on his ass in a one-round TKO, according to Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun.

The referee stopped the fight held in the pugilistic mecca of Thackerville, Oklahoma at 2:20 of the opening three-minute interlude, after Zbikowski sent Warner to the moon with a right uppercut.

Zbikowski’s win moved his record to 4-0. He has won three of those fights since the 2010 football season ended.

The former Notre Dame standout is scheduled to fight on May 21 in Cabazon, California. He’ll then enter the ring again on June 4 at Staples Center.

Goodell confirms NFL will insist on HGH testing

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/04/04/goodell-confirms-nfl-will-insist-on-hgh-testing/

When it comes to testing players for human growth hormone, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says there’s no room for debate: HGH tests have to be part of the next Collective Bargaining Agreement.

“The integrity of the NFL is critical,” Goodell said, per Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun. “We have to make sure that we’re doing everything possible to have the best drug program in sports. Making changes to our program is critical. We have done that over the years and we have to do more, including the inclusion of HGH testing.”

Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com previously reported that the league would insist on HGH testing, and Goodell’s latest comments confirm that the league believes it’s time to add HGH testing to the NFL’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.

However, it remains to be seen how hard the players will fight such testing. Scientists still haven’t developed reliable urine testing for HGH, and the players say they’re opposed to any requirement that they have blood drawn to be tested for illicit substances.

In that respect, the players in the NFL differ from the players in the Canadian Football League. As Albert Breer of NFL Network reported, the CFL players have been fully supportive of that league’s performance-enhancing drug testing program, which includes blood testing for HGH.

For his part, Goodell says testing for HGH is the only way for the league to stay ahead of cheaters.

“We would be naďve to think that people aren’t going to cheat the system,” Goodell said. “But we have to have the best drug testing program to be able to offset it.”

Fine with me. I despise PED cheaters. PED's really cheapen the record books. Just look at MLB and you can see that.

<!-- end mod-article-title --><!-- begin story body -->NEW YORK -- NFL linebacker Ray Lewis (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=964) and former cornerback Reggie Howard (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=2454) are helping a 10-year-old New York boy whose mother drowned herself and three children by driving a van into the Hudson River.
The surviving child, La'Shaun Armstrong, was to attend a Manhattan fundraiser of the United Athletes Foundation on Saturday night. Some of the proceeds will go to create a relief fund to provide him with mentoring, counseling and tutoring.

<!-- INLINE HEADSHOT (END) --><!-- end inline 1 -->
Lewis, a Baltimore Ravens (http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/bal/baltimore-ravens) star, reached out to the child as soon as he heard about the April 12 tragedy. The boy escaped through a van window after the car plunged into the water in Newburgh, N.Y., and was rescued by a passing driver. La'Shaun's 25-year-old mother, Lashanda Armstrong, reportedly was distraught over an argument with her boyfriend.
La'Shaun said meeting Lewis earlier this week was "awesome," according to Howard.
The 35-year-old linebacker went bowling with La'Shaun, saying the boy needs mentoring from a father figure. His biological father, Todd Johnson, is in prison on a robbery conviction.
Lewis is vice chairman of the United Athletes Foundation, which was created in 2008 by a group of professional athletes aiming to improve the lives of other athletes and their communities.
The president of the nonprofit is Howard, who took La'Shaun shopping for a new suit earlier this week.
"I hopped into a cab in Manhattan to his house -- and I had no idea it was more than 60 miles away!" Howard said as he prepared to host Saturday's event at Manhattan's Grand Hyatt hotel.
La'Shaun and his grandmother, Datrice Armstrong, who is raising him now, were the foundation's guests for the weekend, sleeping at the Grand Hyatt.
Besides a check presented to La'Shaun on Saturday -- for an undisclosed amount -- the foundation plans to help him well into the future, Howard said.

He topped out at 448 pounds in college. Jasper ran a 5.38 forty at his Pro Day at 6'4/394, roughly equivalent to a 270-pound wideout running a 4.4. "He’s not as big as you’ve got him listed," said Nix. "He’s down to 378 so he’s drying up." Jasper has athleticism, and obviously has size. The book on him is that he's not a very good player.

Bernard Hopkins rips McNabb, says he’s not black but “got a suntan”

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/05/11/bernard-hopkins-rips-mcnabb-says-hes-not-black-but-got-a-suntan

Boxer Bernard Hopkins, a Philadelphia native and longtime Eagles fan, is continuing his bizarre campaign of slamming former Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb every chance he gets. And this time Hopkins added an element of race to his usual criticisms.

According to Philly.com, Hopkins described McNabb as not black enough.

“Forget this,” Hopkins said, pointing to his own dark skin. “He’s got a suntan. That’s all.”

The paper reports that Hopkins also made a slavery analogy in discussing McNabb’s relationship with the Eagles.

“Why do you think McNabb felt he was betrayed? Because McNabb is the guy in the house, while everybody else is on the field. He’s the one who got the extra coat. The extra servings. ‘You’re our boy,’ ” Hopkins said. “He thought he was one of them.”

After Hopkins got done ripping McNabb, he said he thinks McNabb is a good person.

“Nice guy. I’d trust him around my kids,” Hopkins said.

I’m sure McNabb will appreciate that.

Mike Brown: Bengals won’t trade Carson Palmer, he’ll stay or retire

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/05/23/mike-brown-bengals-wont-trade-carson-palmer-hell-stay-or-retire/

The Cincinnati Bengals aren’t changing their tune on Carson Palmer.

Bengals owner Mike Brown told Albert Breer of NFL Network that he hopes to have Palmer back and won’t trade him, but that if Palmer follows through on a threat to retire rather than return to Cincinnati, the Bengals are prepared to turn to rookie Andy Dalton, the 35th pick in the draft.

“We don’t plan to trade Carson,” Brown said. “He’s important to us. He’s a very fine player, and we do want him to come back. If he chooses not to, he’d retire. And we would go with Andy Dalton, the younger player we drafted, who’s a good prospect. Ideally, we’d have both of them. That’d be the best way to go forward. If we don’t have Carson, we’ll go with Andy.”

Brown sang the praises of Dalton, describing him as a rookie who could be ready to start from Day One.

“He’s very football intelligent, he’s been with our coaches, and Jay Gruden, our coordinator,” Brown said. “Jay had a very good feeling about his football abilities, his abilities to understand the defenses and how to go about things. He’d been productive at the college level, and we think he has a good shot at it here.”

If Brown really feels that way about Dalton, however, it’s hard to see why he’s so steadfast in his refusal to trade Palmer. The Bengals appear to be ready to move on with Dalton as their starting quarterback, so why not try to bolster the roster by getting something for Palmer in a trade?

The question is moot until the lockout ends, but at the moment, Brown clearly doesn’t want Palmer to think he’ll have any other options besides Cincinnati and retirement.

Pennington told the Charleston Daily Mail he plans to skip the 2011 season while he recovers from shoulder and knee injuries and will work for Fox Sports as an analyst. The two-time NFL Comeback Player of the Year, who will turn 35 next weekend, said he might consider returning to the field in 2012.

"I'm actually going to take this year off, get healthy and do some work for Fox Sports," Pennington told the West Virginia newspaper. "I'm going to evaluate things and see where I am physically."

Roughly 100 rookies don’t show up for rookie symposium



The NFLPA* is doing a terrific job by holding their “Business of Football” sessions, their own version of the annual NFL rookie symposium which was canceled by the lockout.
Unfortunately, they can’t make attendance mandatory. Roughly 100 rookies are expected to sit out.
Alex Marvez of FoxSports.com wrote Monday that approximately 125 of the 254 players drafted were expected (http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/story/NFLPA-advises-rookies-to-not-make-large-purchases-in-first-season-062711) to attend. The NFLPA* tells PFT their official head count is 152.
Whatever the exact number is, it’s a shame that such a large segment of the league’s rookie class passed on such a great opportunity.

Redskins will have a hard time trading McNabb

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/07/05/redskins-will-have-a-hard-time-trading-mcnabb/

The contract extension to which McNabb agreed gives the Redskins the ability to squat on McNabb until the eve of the regular-season opener. After Week One, the Redskins would owe McNabb a $10 million option bonus and a $2.5 million base salary. Before then, however, the Redskins owe McNabb nothing — and thus the Redskins can wait for the kind of trade offer that they want.

Or McNabb can buy out the balance of his contract. For the tidy sum of $30 million.

Jason Reid of the Washington Post recently speculated that the Redskins would get, at most, a conditional sixth-round or seventh-round pick for McNabb. Even then, McNabb likely would have to be willing to renegotiate his contract.

Wait...was the 40 time determined by someone timing a dash on the field, or by how fast he set the treadmill? I mean if it's the treadmill thing it's completely inaccurate. You don't have to propel yourself on a treadmill, that's why it's not as good as outdoor or track running.

I don't believe anything from the Marshall camp. They are liars and can't be trusted. I could easily see Marshall lying about how good of shape he is in, how fast he is, anything but say I worked on not dropping big balls and running good routes. It doesn't matter he won't get any better and has peaked. The reason is he tries to get by mostly on being bigger and stronger then other players. He doesn't work like say and Eddie Mac on perfecting his routes. He's a turd, doesn't work hard, and will have another sucky yr. He wasn't worth what Miami gave up.

Quarterback Kerry Collins on Thursday announced his retirement from the NFL.

The 38-year-old Collins was the first draft pick (fifth overall) of the expansion Carolina Panthers in 1995 out of Penn State. Besides Carolina, he also played for the New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Oakland Raiders and Tennessee Titans in 16 seasons. He threw for 40,441 yards with 206 touchdowns and 195 interceptions and was a two-time Pro Bowler.

Agree with Devine. Not sure what his combine numbers (if invited were), but I remember him as an explosive player. He's not like Sproles in that he's got a very slight frame (Sproles is short by stocky), but definitely would add an element to our backfield that we currently lack.

What other UDFA RBs are availabe? Seems to me like we'd be best served to go after those as RB additions to our team and concentrate veteran FA dollars to our DT problem.

Mike Brown's stubbornness will hurt the team again.

I know he is a man of principle and is sticking to his guns, but Carlson Palmer does the team no good under this scenario.

In the best interest of the team, he should trade him for some high draft picks. Right now, he has value to the team, something Mike Brown needs to take advantage of.

Carson Palmer has given the Bengals a lot of good years....if he wants out, Mike Brown should make it happen (only if he gets fair market value for Palmer).

I know Mike Brown wants to make his point.

Too bad the point being made is that players will not want to play for the Bengals even more after this.

Yes, and if he retires his contract goes on hold and resumes as soon as he unretires. As long as he comes back before the reporting date set for that purpose, it counts as a year towards his contract obligation. If he missed the date set, he plays out this year but gets no credit for it or just sits the whole year.

The post above was suggesting that he'd be put back on the team but then they'd have a player that has no value because he hasn't practiced, is only a major distraction, and forces another player (probably not a QB until Palmer is back up to speed on gameplans) to be cut. It's a huge headache for a team once they've already planned for a player to not be there and, as long as he files the paperwork, it's not considered a holdout.
