That's all well and good. There's still a zero percent chance he's the first QB taken.....and maaaaaybe a 10% chance he even goes as early as the tail end of the first round.

Maybe the third QB taken? He has more upside than Mallet. Maybe early-2nd. I have to be honest, I'm kind of smitten with the guy.

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.
McCarthy could take him out in 6 rounds. Or at least drink him under the table.

Ray Lewis helps La'Shaun Armstrong
Associated Press

NEW YORK -- NFL linebacker Ray Lewis and former cornerback Reggie Howard 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.


Lewis


Lewis, a 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 [in Middletown, N.Y.] -- 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.

Lewis has a soft spot for people who escape being murdered by someone else, as it means there is still a chance he can murder them later.

Just because he was involved in a bad thing doesn't discount he did a good thing. How would you like to be judged by the worst thing you ever did for the rest of your life no matter what you did with the rest of your life?

Bills selected Michael Jasper in the 7th round. He played both ways as a guard and defensive tackle at Tennessee-Martin, Middle Tennessee State and Bethel.

The dude is 6-4 and 448 pounds. He could just flop down on each play as a DT and clog up the middle.

Hah! Tooting my own horn, Kaepernick goes to SF #36 overall with their new QB-guru HC Jim Harbaugh (he of Andrew Luck fame). And it was Denver's #36 SF traded up for!

Gonna be an interesting trivia question in years to come!

Bills GM Buddy Nix says No. 245 overall pick Michael Jasper is down to 378 pounds after playing in the 400s at Bethel College last year.
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. The Bills will try to change that. May. 3 - 8:31 am et

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

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...t-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.

Hopkins is a racist. He repeatedly vowed no "white boy" could ever beat him in boxing until he met Calzaghe.

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

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...tay-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.

I don't think this is a bluff.....Mike Brown is a stubborn dude who will stick to his principles.

I could see him letting Carson Palmer sit for a year before trading him.
