Panthers, Bears complete deal for Harris



The Bears and Carolina Panthers completed a trade that sends safety Chris Harris to Chicago for linebacker Jamar Williams, the team confirmed.

For Harris, it is a return to the place his NFL career started, and he fills a need in the Bears' secondary.
"It's great," Harris said on "The Afternoon Saloon" on ESPN 1000. "The tradition Chicago has is second to none. It's an organization that's been around since the beginning. To play for a team with that tradition feels good.
"It felt great to hold up that George Halas trophy in '07 after we beat the Saints [for the NFC title], so I'm hoping we could take it step further and hold up the Lombardi Trophy."
Williams is a restricted free agent who hasn't been able to crack the starting lineup because of Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs.
Harris' contract was restructured in the deal, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. It was trimmed by a year and now ends after the 2011 season. It's worth $3.5 million with a $500,000 roster bonus due on March 5, 2011.
Williams is signed for the 2010 season only.
Harris recently informed linebacker Brian Urlacher that he was on his way back to Chicago, according to a team source.
The Bears told Williams on Tuesday that he will be dealt, according to the source, and that he wouldn't be needed at team facilities for voluntary workouts.
Harris will be reunited with former Carolina defensive end Julius Peppers, whom the Bears signed in the offseason.
"I think he'll be a great impact," Harris said. "He's an excellent edge rusher. That's one thing he brings is constant pressure."
After two seasons with the Bears, Harris was traded to Carolina in 2007. Harris has made 338 career tackles to go with 10 interceptions, including five in the past three seasons.
A sixth-round pick of the Bears in 2005, Harris likely will be paired as a starting safety with this year's third-round pick, Major Wright.
A fourth-year veteran, Williams recently signed a one-year, restricted free-agent tender, which opened the door for the trade. Williams spent his entire career with the Bears as a reserve, but started in two games last season, and finished the year with 49 tackles and two pass breakups.

The Chiefs signed WR David Grimes on Tuesday, who competed in the Chiefs rookie camp this past weekend

The Chiefs worked out eight players this past weekend on a tryout basis at the club's annual rookie mini-camp. Of those eight, head coach Todd Haley indicated that two or three of the hopefuls had a chance at landing a contract for the start of OTAs on May 17th. On Tuesday afternoon, the Chiefs extended one of those tryout players an invite.

David Grimes, a former Notre Dame wide receiver under Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, has been added to Kansas City’s roster. Though he was a weekend tryout invite, Grimes does not qualify as a rookie. He actually entered the league in 2009 as an undrafted free agent with Denver, but was released prior to the start of the regular season. Since Grimes does not have an accrued season of NFL experience, he was eligible to participate in the Chiefs rookie camp.

At5-9, 183, Grimes has both receiving and return experience. He caught 90 passes for 900 yards with seven TDs during his career at Notre Dame and also returned 36 kickoffs for 852 yards.

Grimes represents the first tryout player from this past weekend to sign a contract with the Chiefs.

Panthers' Thomas Davis suffers torn ACL

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...fers-torn-acl/

Posted by Michael David Smith on June 9, 2010 6:56 PM ET

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis suffered a torn ACL during organized team activities and is expected to miss the entire 2010 season.

The injury is to the ACL in his right knee, which he also tore in November. He said today that he'll have surgery again to repair the ligament again.

Davis was a restricted free agent who signed his one-year, $3.268 million tender offer on Tuesday.

Davis suffered the injury while backpedaling during individual drills. Reporters on the scene said he simply fell over and clutched his knee without being touched.

That's why you don't do OTAs without a contract, even if it is the tender. Otherwise, don't go.....

Raiders fans welcome JaMarcus Russell back to Oakland

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on June 20, 2010 8:54 AM ET

JaMarcus Russell made a surprise appearance at a boxing match Saturday in Oakland. And here's the shocking part: he showed up two-thirds into the fight.

Just JaMarcus being JaMarcus.

Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune writes that Russell arrived wearing a University of Alabama hat and jacket, with sunglasses on. (Either he was hoping not to be noticed or he's wants to piss off the one fanbase that still loves him.)

Raiders fans warmly greeted Russell with rising boos as he found his seat. Someone in a Rolondo McClain jersey asked the quarterback for money back for season tickets. The boos rained down again when Russell left the arena, although one forgiving man gave the former No. 1 pick a hug.

If only Russell showed as much courage in the pocket as he did choosing his Saturday night entertainment

Saints T Brown signs tender, shipped to Redskins ..Sat Jun 19, 8:51 pm ET

METAIRIE, La. – The New Orleans Saints traded two-time Pro Bowl tackle Jammal Brown to the Washington Redskins on Saturday in a complex deal involving draft picks.

In exchange for Brown, who missed last season with a hip injury and sports hernia, the Redskins will give the Saints a selection in either the third or fourth round of next year's draft, depending on which of those two picks ends up being sent to the Philadelphia Eagles in the Donovan McNabb trade.

The Redskins will also receive a yet-to-be-determined pick from the Saints in the lower rounds of the 2011 draft. In addition, Washington will send a 2012 sixth-round pick to New Orleans if Brown meets certain incentives.

Brown, a restricted free agent, signed his $3.62 million tender offer before the trade. He had skipped the Saints' voluntary workouts this offseason because he was unhappy with the tender, along with the fact that he might have to compete with Jermon Bushrod to regain his starting job.

Brown, 29, was the No. 13 overall selection in the 2005 draft from Oklahoma. The 6-foot-6, 313-pounder was selected to the Pro Bowl following the 2006 and 2008 seasons.

He started 58 games for the Saints in five seasons before the injuries sidelined him last year. Bushrod, nicknamed "Big Neck," started 15 games in place of Brown during the 2009 regular season, when the Saints allowed only 20 sacks, fourth-fewest in the NFL.

The 6-foot-4, 325-pound Bushrod was a fourth-round choice in the 2007 draft from Towson. He did not play a regular-season snap on the offensive line during his first two seasons.

Brown could be the solution at right tackle for the Redskins, who are rebuilding the line under new coach Mike Shanahan after last year's 4-12 season.

Washington took Trent Williams of Oklahoma with the No. 4 overall pick in April's draft to replace retired six-time Pro Bowl left tackle Chris Samuels. Artis Hicks has worked with the first-string unit at right tackle during the offseason, but he could move to right guard to make room for Brown.

DL Seymour signs $12.4M franchise tag with Raiders..

By JOSH DUBOW, AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow, Ap Sports Writer – Sat Jun 19, 3:40 pm ET

ALAMEDA, Calif. – Defensive lineman Richard Seymour signed his $12.4 million exclusive franchise tag tender with the Oakland Raiders on Saturday.

The move means all of the Raiders' veterans are under contract for next season. The team announced the signing on its website, adding that the process of signing rookies would begin soon.

By placing the tag on Seymour in February, the Raiders guaranteed Seymour a salary for next season of at least $12.398 million, which was the average salary earned last year by the five highest-paid defensive ends in the league.

Seymour, 31, was not allowed to negotiate with other teams so it was inevitable that he would return to the Raiders. Coach Tom Cable said the sides had been working on a long-term deal during the offseason but Seymour signed the one-year deal instead.

Because Seymour was not under contract, he missed Oakland's entire offseason program. He will rejoin the team when training camp starts in Napa on July 28.

The Raiders acquired Seymour just before the start of last season by sending a 2011 first-round pick to New England. He was paid about $3.7 million last season.

Seymour was a stalwart in New England after being drafted sixth overall in 2001. He played on three Super Bowl winners with the Patriots, recording 39 career sacks and being selected to the Pro Bowl for five straight seasons beginning in 2002.

Seymour made an impressive debut just days after arriving in Oakland, recording two sacks in a season-opening loss to San Diego. But Seymour had only two more sacks in the final 15 games and was unable to solve the Raiders' run defense woes.

The Raiders finished the season 5-11, their NFL-worst seventh straight season with at least 11 losses. Oakland finished 29th in run defense at 155.5 yards per game.

The Raiders have made some key moves to upgrade the run defense this offseason. They used their first two draft picks on middle linebacker Rolando McClain and defensive end Lamarr Houston. They also traded for linebacker Kamerion Wimbley and signed two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle John Henderson earlier this month.

Steve Smith breaks arm again, tried to keep it quiet

Posted by Mike Florio on June 21, 2010 12:39 PM ET
The injury woes in Carolina continue. Not long ago, linebacker Thomas Davis tore an ACL during offseason workouts.

Now, receiver Steve Smith has broken his arm while playing flag football in a North Carolina adult league. Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report it; we have since confirmed it.

We're told that the break occurred in the same arm he broke late in the 2009 season. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports that Smith already has had surgery on the arm, and that he'll miss the beginning of camp.

It happened, we're told, as Smith tried to deflect a pass. His arm struck another player, and he instantly knew he had been injured. He also called together his flag football teammates and urged them to not say anything to anyone about the injury.

So much for that.

While Schefter characterizes the injury as having occurred at Smith's "football camp," we're told that it actually happened in the championship game of an adult flag football league in which Smith and other NFL players had participated for the entire duration of the league's season. Also taking part, we're told, were Panthers receiver Kenny Moore and former Panthers quarterback Josh McCown.

More to come on this one.

UPDATE: The Panthers have officially confirmed the injury.

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have been dealt another big blow to what's already been a trying offseason.

Starting offensive tackle Willie Colon suffered a torn Achilles, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

I like how this whole Vick party-shooting thing is such a non-issue. Like, "Oh ya, he left before it all went down."

LULZ

YA NO BIG DEAL HIS PARTNER IN CRIME GOT CAPPED, IT WAS PROBABLY JUST SOME GIRL SCOUTS.

Anyways, ya I hope he goes down, since there's a story out that he's lying about his timeline.
