Ex-QB's son, 2, dies in hot tub incident

Updated Jun 30, 2010 1:37 PM ET

The 2-year-old son of former NFL star quarterback Randall Cunningham has died in what authorities on Wednesday called an apparent backyard hot tub accident.

The Clark County coroner's office identified the child as Christian Cunningham, and said the cause of death was pending.

Las Vegas police Officer Marcus Martin, a department spokesman, said the death appeared to have been an accidental drowning, but authorities were still investigating.

Cunningham, 47, is an ordained minister and pastor of a church six blocks off Las Vegas Boulevard that he runs with his wife, Felicity. Christian Cunningham was the youngest of their four children.

A message left for the couple at the church was not immediately returned. Cunningham was out of town Tuesday, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, which first reported the boy's death.

Martin said police were called late Tuesday afternoon to Cunningham's home in southeast Las Vegas after an adult at the house with several other children found the boy in the hot tub and began trying to resuscitate him.

The child was pronounced dead less than an hour later at St. Rose Dominican Hospital Siena campus in nearby Henderson, Nev.

Cunningham, a fleet-footed quarterback, played for 16 years in the NFL for the Philadelphia Eagles, Minnesota Vikings, Dallas Cowboys and Baltimore Ravens. He was a Pro Bowl pick four times. He also starred at UNLV.

Cunningham retired in 2002 as the career leader in rushing yards among NFL quarterbacks with 4,928. The Eagles last year added him to the team's honor roll.

Cunningham returned to UNLV and earned his bachelor's degree in 2004 in leisure studies. He said at the time he wanted to set a good example for his children.

Lions | No longer interested in Albert Haynesworth
Wed, 30 Jun 2010 12:59:40 -0400
The Detroit Lions are no longer interested in Washington Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth because they are worried about what kind of influence Haynesworth would be on DT Ndamukong Suh, a source told NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.





Must really suck when the crappiest team doesn't want you

Eagles | Michael Vick left three minutes before shooting

Wed, 30 Jun 2010 08:15:39 -0400

The lawyer for Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick said his client was "long gone" before a shooting took place near a Virginia Beach restaurant that hosted his 30th birthday party. However, a partner of the restaurant said the owners have turned over video surveillance that shows Vick leaving just three minutes before shots were fired, according to the Daily Press of Newport News. Allen Fabijan, a spokesman for the Guadalajara restaurant, said the video shows Vick "and his entourage" driving away from the restaurant at 2:07 a.m. ET Friday, June 25. "You can see everybody duck at 2:10," Fabijan told the newspaper. "I'm not saying that Michael Vick did the shooting. But he did not leave (long) before" the shooting.

UPDATE: Don't count the Denver Broncos out of the Flozell Adams sweepstakes just yet. Hunter Ansley of FOXSportsSouthwest.com wrote that the Broncos are "still very much in the mix" for Adams' services and that coach Josh McDaniels, who is looking to improve the team's line, "may view the 6-7 340-pounder as a red zone panacea."

If the Broncos and Steelers go head-to-head in their attempts to sign Adams, the tackle's price tag could rise.

DETROIT (AP) — Former Pro Bowl cornerback Dre' Bly is returning to Detroit.

The Lions said Friday that the unrestricted free agent has signed a two-year deal. Additional terms weren't released.

Bly spent four seasons in Detroit after signing as an unrestricted free agent in 2003. He made the Pro Bowl after the 2003 and 2004 seasons before he was traded to Denver following the 2006-07 season for two players and a draft pick.

He was released by the Broncos in February 2009 and played 16 games last year with San Francisco, starting six. Bly made 26 solo tackles for the 49ers, along with a sack and three interceptions.

Detroit also released cornerback Paul Pratt.

Person familiar with team's thinking says Eagles might release quarterback Michael Vick

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A person familiar with the team's thinking says the Philadelphia Eagles are strongly considering releasing Michael Vick.

The person says the team might cut Vick no matter what police conclude during their investigation of a shooting that followed the quarterback's birthday celebration in Virginia Beach last week. The person spoke to The Associated Press early Saturday on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.

The Eagles issued a statement Saturday saying "any report or speculation that suggests the Eagles are considering releasing Vick are not true. We will continue to gather information and monitor the situation and we will not have any further comment until that process is complete."

Vick has said he had nothing to do with the shooting. He also said he reported the incident to the Eagles and to the NFL. Commissioner Roger Goodell told the former Atlanta Falcons star after reinstating him last season that his margin for error was "extremely limited."

Vick is entering his second season with the Eagles and is due to earn $5.2 million. A three-time Pro Bowl pick, Vick is Kevin Kolb's backup and the most experienced quarterback on the roster following the trade of Donovan McNabb.

The Eagles were heavily criticized by animal rights activists and fans for signing Vick last summer less than a month after he finished serving 18 months in federal prison for his role in a dogfighting operation.

Team owner Jeffrey Lurie called Vick's actions "horrific" and "despicable." He said he did serious "soul-searching" before agreeing to sign him.

Vick was a model citizen off the field and in the locker room during his first season with the Eagles. He was popular among his teammates, who voted him winner of the Ed Block Courage Award.

But this latest incident could end up costing Vick his job, even if he's exonerated of any wrongdoing.

Vick was expected to play a major role in Philadelphia's offense running the wildcat formation. Instead, he was used sparingly. Vick completed 6 of 13 passes for 86 yards and one touchdown and ran for 95 yards and two scores. He tossed a 76-yard TD pass in a 34-14 loss to Dallas in the playoffs.

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Rams have signed eight of their 2010 draft picks and can now turn their attention to the big one: No. 1 overall pick Sam Bradford.

The Rams said Monday they have signed all but three of the players chosen in the April draft: Bradford, offensive tackle Rodger Saffold and tight end Fendi Onobun.

Those signing contracts were receiver Mardy Gilyard, linebacker Josh Hull, cornerbacks Jerome Murphy and Marquis Johnson, defensive ends Hall Davis, Eugene Sims and George Selvie, and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (ho-OH'-man-oh-man-OO-ee).

Mike Shanahan has made the Redskins older
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on July 5, 2010 1:23 PM ET

Don't call it a rebuilding project.

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan and trusty sidekick G.M. Bruce Allen built the 2010 Washington Redskins to compete now, and develop players later. That's what happens when you have one draft pick out of the top 100 selections.

CSNWashington blogger Rich Tandler notes that Shanahan took the league's oldest roster and made it even older. Using an admittedly unscientific roster projection by beat writer Ryan O'Halloran, Washington's average age should roughly climb half a year more than last season's 28-year-old average.

Out of 24 new players on the projected roster, 13 additions will be over 30 years old in Week One. The average age of projected starters climbed more than the reserves.

What does all this mean? Well, not much in the standings. Three of the four oldest teams in football last year (New Orleans, Arizona, New England) won their divisions.

But feel free to argue with anyone that says the Redskins are "building" towards the future more than any other team. The rest of the NFC East teams remain younger and posses more quality young core players.

One offseason can only change so much.

Another example of Tom Brady's discontent with the Patriots
Posted by Mike Florio on July 5, 2010 4:05 PM ET

On the surface, neither the Patriots nor quarterback Tom Brady have given any credence to the notion that the relationship between team and player isn't as rosy as it used to be. Those in the know know that it isn't, as Mike Silver of Yahoo! Sports pointed out last month.

Brady wants a new deal, the team has invoked the uncertain status of the labor deal to justify delay, and as Albert Breer of the Boston Globe recently observed it all points to the likely use of the franchise tag on Brady come 2011, if there's a franchise tag in 2011. Or a football season.

In the interim, Brady stayed away from this year's offseason workouts at an eyebrow-raising rate.

One point of frustration, we're told, comes from the manner in which the team has used Brady's willingness to take less than top dollar in the past as a tool for leveraging others in the organization (players and non-players alike) to do the same. As we hear it, Brady never intended his decision to provide the franchise with a blueprint for squeezing his colleagues.

And so, possibly for that very reason, all indications are that Brady wants top dollar this time around -- especially since he saw Peyton Manning take top dollar with a salary cap in place, which didn't keep the Colts from contending on a regular basis.

Jaguars | Reggie Hayward released
Wed, 07 Jul 2010 21:39:33 -0400
The Jacksonville Jaguars have released DE Reggie Hayward, reports Vito Stellino, of The Florida Times-Union. With six defensive ends on roster, the team made the calculated risk to release him.

Wow. He was overpaid but they front-loaded his contract and with no cap to take a hit on, this was much easier. You're welcome, Hayward. The Broncos got you that contract.

Yeah they paid a lot for 15.5 sacks over 5 years. I wasn't too upset when Denver let him go now Bertrand Berry I hated to see leave but at least he had a good career post Denver.
