Even after the Anquan Boldin addition, Mike Preston of the Baltimore Sun believes the Ravens still need one more receiver.

Don’t expect a lot of free agent moves from the Bengals after they find a receiver.

Cleveland’s new addition Seneca Wallace is expected to vault ahead of Brady Quinn in Cleveland, assuming Quinn even stays. 

Of his return to Pittsburgh, WR Antwaan Randle El says “it’s kind of like going home.”

Texans G Chester Pitts would like to stay in Houston.

Colts G.M. Bill Polian is not a fan of numbers: “All of the statistical analysis that’s done over the course of a season
means nothing.”

Free agent P Hunter Smith, a difference maker for the Redskins in 2009, says he’s drawing interest and “Washington is certainly one of those teams” on his radar.

doesn’t fall into a rut. He finishes.”

The Packers built a per-game roster bonus into T Chad Clifton’s contract.  He can make up $7.85 million this season.

The Falcons amazingly found a player that can “out-gush” owner Arthur Blank.

    “Eagles QB Michael Vick was in Baltimore on Monday to receive his Ed Block Courage Award.”
    What a joke. The pimpish 0-3gles have single-handedly cheapened the award so badly in the name of getting a better draft pick out of selling their ho’s diseased booty that it may never be taken seriously again.

    WHAT? Randel El was promised a chance to compete for the 3rd WR spot? Are you kidding me?
    I love Randel El from the Superbowl XL season, but Wallace earned that 3rd spot last year. Don’t give it to the veteran, give it to the emerging star.
