Six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle La'Roi Glover is retiring after 13 NFL seasons.

Glover, who turns 35 on July 4, started nine of 16 games in 2008 during his third season with the St. Louis Rams, three years removed from a stretch in which he was selected to six straight Pro Bowls.

From PFW:

Sources say Al Davis is willing to cut maligned Raiders S Michael Huff if he doesn’t show improvement in the near future. Huff, the team’s 2006 first-round pick (seventh overall), has been working at strong safety during OTAs and minicamps, and we hear he’s likely to be released if he doesn’t earn a starting spot. The 26-year-old has been a major disappointment and was demoted from the starting lineup to the bench midway through last season. He has yet to show signs of figuring things out this offseason.

Does Huff have the athleticism to play corner? (I assume if he did, the Raiders would have already tried him there like they did with Nmandi.)

Seems like he must've put up some freak combine numbers to get drafted that high, but doesn't have enough going on upstairs to handle the complexities of being a safety. Wouldn't corner (man coverage especially) be simple enough for him to handle?

T.O. Gets T-Owned

Posted by Mike Florio on June 22, 2009, 10:55 p.m.

Finally, someone has done something that Jeff Garcia, Donovan McNabb, and Tony Romo have each failed to do.

Terrell Owens has been put in his place.

The author of the T.O. verbal smackdown is Joanna Krupa, a Polish-born model who is T.O.’s teammate on the ABC ’70s-throwback reality competition Superstars.

For the first time in his life, Owens is speechless.

But Krupa isn’t speechless, and so we suggest turning down the speakers or ushering the kids out of the room before she makes like Kramer at the dentist’s office.

In all reality, probably a nice little marketing ploy for the show.

Bears | Cutler has spoken with Marshall
Tue, 23 Jun 2009 07:56:25 -0700

Marty O'Brien, of The Newport News Daily Press, reports Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler said he has spoken with disgruntled Denver Broncos WR Brandon Marshall and would not have a problem reuniting with Marshall if the Bears were able to land him. "I talked to 'B' a few days ago. Just checking in on him and seeing how he's doing, because I went through a similar thing that he's going through," Cutler said. "I played with Brandon for three years and I think he's one of the best receivers in the NFL. I think he can be one of the greatest ever to play. He's big and fast, and can do everything you want him to do, on the field and in the meeting room. I don't know what we're going to do. That's up to the guys upstairs. If we make a run at him, we make a run at him."

He doesn't even have the athleticism to play FS.

He is just another in a long line of Longhorns who look brilliant in that Mack Brown machine but fall flat when the reach the pros. He isn't fast enough to be a FS and not a good enough tackler and lacks instincts to play SS.

He might fit in with a cover 2 team as a safety, but that seems to be it.

The Green Bay Packers and wide receiver Greg Jennings are in the process of finalizing a three-year contract that will keep him with the team through 2012.

According to a source, Jennings could make $27 million in new money with the deal, but if he performs at a Pro Bowl level, his new contract could be worth as much as $30 million. Jennings was in the last year of his rookie contract and was scheduled to make $535,000.

I don't mind the Favre circus.

It makes for an interesting sideshow....especially now that it looks like he will be a Viking.

The way I look at it....Brett Favre playing for the Vikings makes for a lot more interesting games than Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels playing for them.

Minnesota versus Green Bay suddenly becomes 2 must see games.

I think it would be funny if he won a Super Bowl for the Vikings....Green Bay fan would have a perpetual pouty face.

It would be like John Elway leaving the Broncos at 38 or 39 because the GM did not want him anymore and watching him sign with the Raiders or Chiefs....and then win a Super Bowl with one of them.

I would have walked around for years with a look on my face like I just smelled fresh dog ****.

Mike Brown Lands With Chiefs

Posted by Mike Florio on June 24, 2009, 12:27 p.m. EDT

On the same day that they agreed to terms with rookie Colin Brown (a development that nearly provoked an Abbott-and-Costello-style IM exchange between yours truly and Rosenthal over who would be writing this specific blurb), the Chiefs have agreed to terms with veteran safety Mike Brown.

According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, the former Bear will be officially joining the Chiefs.

Brown was a second-round pick in the 2000 draft, and he spent the first nine seasons of his career in Chicago, qualifying for the Pro Bowl in 2005.

Per Teicher, Brown is expected to challenge either Jarrad Page or Bernard Pollard for a starting job.

As Teicher also points out, durability is an issue for Brown. Though he started every game in 2008, he appeared in only one game in 2007 and only six in 2006, missing the team’s first Super Bowl run in more than two decades.

Brown also was limited to 12 games in 2005 and two in 2004.

For the first four seasons of his career, Brown was an iron man, appearing in all 65 games, including the postseason.

Earlier this month, Brown visited the Cleveland Browns, a development that prompted some Cincinnati fans to think (hope) that the Bengals were trading their owner.

Report: Northcutt Traded To Lions

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...aded-to-lions/

Posted by Aaron Wilson on June 26, 2009, 8:03 p.m. EDT

Dennis Northcutt is no longer a Jacksonville Jaguar.

According to John Clayton of ESPN.com, the Jaguars have traded the veteran wide receiver to the Detroit Lions.

And the Lions have compensated the Jaguars by sending them safety Gerald Alexander.

Alexander and Northcutt share the same agent, Jerome Stanley. Per the report, which cited sources, Stanley was surprised that Alexander was included in the trade.

Per the report, the Lions were unwilling to give up a draft pick. So, that’s how the rare player-for-player swap developed.

According to Clayton, the trade terms were completed today. However, the deal won’t be official until next week when it’s ratified by league officials.

Harrell still hopeful for shot in NFL

Former record-breaking Texas Tech quarterback Graham Harrell is currently working out with his younger brother, Clark, in Abilene, said their father Sam Harrell, Ennis' football coach.

Clark Harrell is a quarterback at Abilene Christian University, where he's been joined by Graham as he continues to prepare for a shot with an NFL team.

Sam Harrell said that Graham and Clark are working out with a strength and conditioning coach at ACU. Sam Harrell said that Graham is hopeful that the Cleveland Browns will sign him to a free agent contract and bring him into training camp with a shot to make the team. Harrell spent a few days with the Browns after he wasn't selected in the NFL Draft. As of now, however, Graham has yet to hear from the Browns about a possible training camp spot.

I am pretty surprised that Harrell is not even on a team, fighting for a chance in training camp.

Three Players To Watch In NFL Supplemental Draft

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2009/...emental-draft/

Posted by Aaron Wilson on June 27, 2009, 8:40 p.m. EDT

As the NFL supplemental draft approaches, at least three players are considered intriguing enough to potentially be drafted, according to Gil Brandt of NFL.com.

University of Kentucky defensive end Jeremy Jarmon headlines a list that also includes Central Michigan offensive tackle Joe McMahon and Florida State wide receiver Corey Surrency.

Jarmon is an All-Southeastern Conference pass rusher who was declared ineligible by the NCAA after testing positive for a diuretic, a banned substance under NCAA rules.

Jarmon is scheduled to hold a Pro Day campus workout on July 9 prior to the draft, which is set for July 16.

And the Philadelphia Eagles have displayed interest in Jarmon, bringing him in for a visit, according to Joe Schad of ESPN.com.

At Kentucky, Jarmon registered 13 1/2 sacks and 100 tackles over the past two seasons. Jarmon, who’s listed at 6′3,” 280 pounds, has 4.76 speed in the 40-yard dash.

A 6′5,” 210-pound junior college transfer, Surrency caught 12 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns during his lone season at Florida State.

Surrency started twice last season, but was suspended for two games.

He was suspended for the Georgia Tech game for violating team rules. He was also suspended for the Boston College game because of his participation in a fight outside the student union.

Surrency, who had trouble with the law growing up in Miami, was declared ineligible by the NCAA due to playing two seasons of semi-pro indoor football in Florida after attending junior college. He lost a subsequent appeal.

McMahon is a two-time Golden Gloves boxing champion who attended Central Michigan after playing junior-college football at Joliet (Ill.) Junior College.

McMahon started at offensive guard and center for the Chippewas, but his academic problems derailed his collegiate career.

Cowboys charging for tours of new stadium

From the Associated Press:

Fans concerned about affording to see a game or a show at the new $1.15 billion Cowboys Stadium in Arlington can still check out the place. For a fee.

Tours began Friday at the retractable-roof venue of the Dallas Cowboys, the same day as thousands of hopefuls for the Fox TV show "American Idol" showed up for auditions.

Stadium tours, at $15 for adults and $12 for children, will be conducted every half-hour and last up to 75 minutes.

The tour includes the high-tech scoreboard control room, the press box, the Cowboys locker room and limited field access.

McDaniels is interested in investing in this idiot?

Good heavens. At best, he might catch more than the paltry 12 he managed for Florida State.

At worst, he and Marshall could become a real life 'Law and Order' reality circus.

Seahawks | Houshmandzadeh guarantees playoffs

Mon, 29 Jun 2009 09:24:27 -0700

Greg Johns, of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, reports Seattle Seahawks WR T.J. Houshmandzadeh said during an interview with the Sporting News that the team will make the playoffs this season. Houshmandzadeh also predicted Pro Bowl nominations for himself and QB Matt Hasselbeck. "I just want to let everyone know that Matt Hasselbeck and I will be leading the Seahawks to the playoffs this season," Houshmandzadeh said. "And we'll be going to the Pro Bowl as a tandem. We're both going to have top five seasons: He'll have a top five quarterback season, and I'll have a top five receiving season. I'll put up stats I've never had before yards-wise because they're allowing me to be a complete receiver."
