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.

The Cards are trying to sign Marc Bulger. So far he has turned them down. If they do sign him its a pretty big blow for us.

Reading this makes me think the Eagles will be a team to be reckoned with this year. With Washburn as DL coach the may be able to bring in Haynesworth and return him to something approching his prior self. And they'll be in the mix for other FA's as well.

Scratch Chad Pennington as an option for the Miami Dolphins' -- or anybody else's -- quarterback depth chart next season.

Pennington told the Charleston Daily Mail he plans to skip the 2011 season while he recovers from shoulder and knee injuries and will work for Fox Sports as an analyst. The two-time NFL Comeback Player of the Year, who will turn 35 next weekend, said he might consider returning to the field in 2012.

"I'm actually going to take this year off, get healthy and do some work for Fox Sports," Pennington told the West Virginia newspaper. "I'm going to evaluate things and see where I am physically."
This is like saying the Paul Reiser Show is going to take a year long break from television.

ESPN News has just confirmed that, upon exiting the interview, Chad apparently separated his shoulder when he pushed the elevator's lobby button.
