As it turns out, the Titans were seriously interested in a first-round quarterback who finished the 2008 season with the Broncos.

They’ve signed Patrick Ramsey, according to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, who has written perhaps the most succinct blog entry we’ve ever seen.

“The Titans agreed to terms on Friday with quarterback Patrick Ramsey.”

Since we’re merely piggybacking off Jim’s work (yeah, Chris, we’ve got eyes and ears everywhere), we’ll elaborate a bit.

Ramsey entered the league in 2002 as a first-round pick of the Redskins. He started five games in 2002, eleven in 2003, seven in 2004, and one in 2005.

In three years since (one with the Jets and two in Denver) he has appeared in only four games, starting none.

Last year, he threw only three passes, completing two of them.

In Tennessee, Ramsey joins a depth chart with Kerry Collins and Vince Young.

Ramsey will be replaced in Denver by Chris Simms, who spent most of 2008 with the Titans.

Boy that was a mistake by the titans.

Garcia Heading Back To The Bay?

Posted by Mike Florio on April 4, 2009, 11:11 p.m.

Quarterback Jeff Garcia, a former starter for the San Francisco 49ers, could soon be playing for the team that resides on the other side of the Bay.

We’re told that Garcia has drawn the interest of the Raiders, and that he possibly could be added to the team in the not-too-distant future.

No deal has been done yet, and as far as we know no offer has been made. But it’s the closest Garcia has come to signing with a new team since hitting the market on February 27.

Garcia, 39, played in the CFL before joining the 49ers in 1999. After five years in San Fran, during which he started 71 of 80 regular-season games, he spent a disappointing year in Cleveland followed by a disappointing year in Detroit.

He seemed to revitalize his career by leading the Eagles on an unlikely playoff run in 2006, after Donovan McNabb was lost for the year with a hernia. Suddenly the toast of Philly, the Eagles didn’t bring Garcia back for a second season — possibly because McNabb felt threatened by Garcia’s popularity.

Garcia signed a relatively modest two-year deal with the Bucs in early 2007, and created a stink last year, wanting more money. Benched early in the 2008 season, Garcia nearly led the Buccaneers to the playoffs for a second straight season, but the team opted to sever ties with him.

In Oakland, Garcia would join a roster that currently includes JaMarcus Russell, Andrew Walter, and Bruce Gradkowski.

Texans Sign Buster Davis

Posted by Josh Alper on April 5, 2009, 9:45 a.m.

Cato June wasn’t the only former Colts linebacker to sign with the Texans on Saturday.

The team also announced that they’ve come to terms with Buster Davis.

Davis signed a one-year deal worth $445,000, according to Paul Kuharsky of ESPN.com. He was an exclusive rights free agent entering the offseason and signed a tender with the Colts on March 13, but he was waived on March 31.

Davis played six games for the Colts in 2008, and he started three as middle linebacker in place of the injured Gary Brackett.

Davis was originally drafted by the Cardinals out of Florida State in the third round of the 2007 draft. He didn’t make the team, however, and played one game with the Lions during the 2007 season.

Davis and June join DeMeco Ryans, Xavier Adibi, Zac Diles, Kevin Bentley, Chaun Thompson, and Kevis Coley in the Texans linebacker corps.

So do you think they release Walter and would he be a good fit for McDaniels offense?

Plaxico Burress, released Friday by the Giants amid an ongoing gun-possession case in New York, cursed out a police officer in Florida during a recent traffic stop, telling the cop he was going to be in trouble because Burress knew the sheriff "personally," the New York Post has reported.

Burress, who faces a 3˝-year prison sentence on the gun charge, replied to each of the officer's questions and commands with an "[expletive] you" during the stop, the newspaper reported, citing police.

Broward County Deputy Sheriff Donald Harris pulled Burress over around 10:30 a.m. on March 18 for speeding on Interstate 95 near Fort Lauderdale, the Post reported. Harris opened the door of Burress' black 2008 Toyota Sequoia when the officer couldn't see inside the player's SUV.

"[Expletive] you," Burress said, according to the Post. "You can't open my [expletive] door."

Burress, who the police report said was driving like "he was going to kill somebody," was issued a $150 speeding citation, his fifth traffic ticket in Florida in the past month, the report said.

According to the police, a "violent and aggressive" 31-year-old Burress was asked to get out of his car in order to be checked for weapons.

"You're going to hear about this by the end of your shift," said Burress, who has a house in South Florida, as he returned to his car, according to the newspaper report.

Burress also received tickets for going 60 mph in a 45 mph zone, improper tags, improper lane change and improper window tinting on March 1, the Post reported.

His gun-possession case was adjourned last Tuesday until June 15.

He simply can't stay healthy.

And he's averaging 80 receptions for 894 yds and 4 TDs per 16 games. Good, but hardly league-leading in any way.

How does that justify the highest contract in history for a TE?

TB has lost its marbles.

Bengals Bag Tank Johnson

Posted by Mike Florio on April 7, 2009, 5:06 p.m. EDT

In hindsight, we aren’t really surprised.

The Bengals have shown a soft spot for players with troubled pasts. They added another one on Tuesday, signing free-agent defensive tackle Tank Johnson.

In 2007, Johnson was suspended eight games by Commissioner Roger Goodell due to multiple violations of the personal conduct policy.

Johnson also served two months in prision that year for violating the terms of probation.

Cut by the Bears, Johnson signed with the Cowboys, and spent the balance of the 2007 season and all of 2008 in Dallas.

He joins a roster that includes receiver Chris Henry, who also was suspended eight games in 2007, and running back Cedric Benson, who was cut by the Bears last year after two DUI arrests (one by land, the other by sea) in roughly a month.

The roster includes various other players with legal entanglements, including Mike Doss (firing a gun in the air), Kyries Hebert (assault), Johnathan Joseph (marijuana), Frostee Rucker (battery and vandalism), and Jason Shirley (DUI).

So maybe Johnson can persuade the team to give his good friend (and Chris Henry’s former college teammate) Pacman Jones another shot.

And then maybe Mike Vick can be the appropriately-named Wildcat quarterback in Cincinnati.

Two Major Hurdles For Edwards-To-Giants Trade

Posted by Mike Florio on April 8, 2009, 11:18 a.m. EDT

A rumor is making the rounds that the Browns might soon send receiver Braylon Edwards to the Giants, for a first-round pick and a fifth-round pick.

Several readers have pointed this one out to us, attributing it to ESPN 950 in Philly.

One of the producers we know at ESPN 950 has explained that drive-time host Mike Missanelli was merely commenting on a video speculating on the situation, and that ESPN 950 isn’t “reporting” anything about a possible trade.

As one source with knowledge of the discussions tells us, any talks between the two teams would properly be characterized as “exploratory.”

The problem, as the source explained, is that the Browns want a lot for Edwards, and that Edwards wants a lot by way of a new contract.

The source tells us that the Browns are believed to be requesting at least a first-round pick and a third-round pick for Edwards — which makes sense since the Cowboys gave up a first-round pick, a third-round pick, and a sixth-round pick for former Lions receiver Roy Williams and a seventh-round pick.

Also, Edwards (who is entering the final year of his rookie contract) is looking for a Larry Fitzgerald-style deal, with a value of $10 million per year.

As the source points out, Edwards is no Fitzgerald. If he were, the Browns wouldn’t be willing to even discuss trading him.

So barring a major change in the position of the Browns and Edwards, the Giants won’t be biting on Braylon.

Giants would be better off going for Anquan Boldin at this point. At least he'd be worth the $ and draft picks they'd have to fork out. Braylon "miserable hands" Edwards? Not so much.

Tonight You're Partying With Vince Young And Albert Haynesworth
By Dashiell Bennett

We didn't get invited to LenDale White's birthday party—must have been some mixup—but thankfully all the memories of hanging out with the Tennessee Titans have been preserved forever via YouTube.

LenDale's birthday was in December, when Albert Haynesworth was still in Nashville and Vince Young was still ... whatever it was he was doing back then. After the usual shout-outs and big ups and whatnot, it's just a couple guys hanging out at the club, not getting drunk on premium water sponsorships and maybe some friendly teammate bonding.

Also, I'm not sure, but I believe Haynesworth mentions Roger Goodell "having" some girl in his office? I didn't actually catch most of that, but I do like how Albert brags about being Goodell's first "real" suspension. Suspensions must have been on his mind, because this party must have taken place about a week after the car accident that left another driver in a wheelchair, which itself was just a few days after Haynesworth had been placed on probation by judge. (Hence all the water?)

But, hey, as long as Vince keeps his shirt on, no one is going to complain.

Default Chiefs sign WR Wright and a long snapper

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -The Kansas City Chiefs have signed wide receiver Rodney Wright and long snapper Tanner Purdum.
Wright, as a seventh-round draft pick of Buffalo in 2002, spent portions of the 2002 and 2003 seasons on the Bills' practice squad.

Bills Shopping Roscoe Parrish

Posted by Mike Florio on April 9, 2009, 6:33 p.m. EDT

With a glut of wide receivers and a 2008 first-round defensive back (Leodis McKelvin) who can return kicks on the roster, the Buffalo Bills are testing the waters for interest in Roscoe Parrish.

According to a league source, the Bills are shopping Parrish, primarily as an exploratory measure.

Parrish was a second-round pick in the 2005 draft, and he has appeared in 55 of a possible 64 career games. He has served primarily as a kick returner, with only 1,097 total receiving yards in four NFL seasons. He also has more fumbles (seven) than receiving touchdowns (five).

Signed for three more seasons, Parrish is due to earn base salaries of $1 million in 2009, $1.025 million in 2010, and $1.025 million in 2011.

The Bills currently have nine receivers on the roster: Parrish, Terrell Owens, Lee Evans, Josh Reed, James Hardy, Felton Huggins, Justin Jenkins, Steve Johnson, and C.J. Hawthorne.

OMG Roscoe dont' go to camp! Demand a trade now! Also cry!

In all seriousness though, do those 7 fumbles include special teams duty? Or is that just as a receiver? He's a pretty good return guy isn't he?

Apparently Mr. Bowlen isn't the only owner who doesn't like to be blown off...

Giants Owner Confirms That Burress Was Ignoring The Team
Posted by Mike Florio on April 9, 2009, 10:28 p.m. EDT

We heard several weeks ago that the Giants had been unable to get in touch with receiver Plaxico Burress after the 2008 season.

During a Thursday interview with Chris Russo of Sirius XM Radio’s Mad Dog Unleashed, Giants co-owner John Mara confirmed that Burress wasn’t being responsive. And Mara didn’t like it.

“[G.M.] Jerry Reese had attempted to contact him on a number of occasions and was not able to get a hold of him which, to be honest with you, irritated me quite a bit,” Mara said.

Mara also explained that the decision to sever ties with Burress resulted from the fact that his pending legal entanglement has not yet been resolved — and that no resolution was in sight.

“[T]he case was postponed again so we felt like that would continue to leave us in limbo,” Mara said. “We were attempting to settle one of the two grievances out there with him, one of which was decided in his favor just the other day, and we were not having much success in those settlement discussions and we just felt like enough was enough and it’s time to just move on.”

In the end, the outcome wasn’t unexpected. Mara explained that the relationship likely was heading for a divorce, regardless of the outcome of the legal proceedings.

“I was fairly certain, to be honest with you, at the end of the ’08 season that he was probably not coming back to us,” Mara said.

I have a feeling we're going to be seeing a lot more of this in the future. It's been proven that you can't get what you want by crying to the media, but now that the precedent has been set for getting what you want by giving the "silent treatment" to the bosses, why not try it? It's easy.
