Tuesday morning one-liners

The Bills still haven’t settled on a left tackle, but it appears Demetrius Bell will keep his job.  (That sound you hear is the rest of the AFC East cheering.)

Dolphins coach Tony Sparano defended his embattled offensive line.

Deion Branch isn’t sweating a catch-less preseason with the Patriots.

The Jets captured the Snoopy trophy on Monday night. Really.  This is a thing that exists.

Baltimore expects wideout Lee Evans back practicing fully sooner than later.

Rookie Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton likes his new nickname “The Red Rifle.”  (He’ll shoot your eye out?)

The Browns may pick up another running back because of Brandon Jackson’s injury.

Steelers guard/center Doug Legursky is now a starter, passing Tony Hills on the depth chart at guard.

Perhaps Texans running back Arian Foster isn’t anti-fantasy, just pro human.

No matter when Peyton Manning returns, the Colts need the running game to improve.

Jaguars guard Uche Nwaneri on the increasing amount of concussions: “You’re seeing a lot more concussions because any time a guy gets his bell rung, they put it down as a concussion. It used to be they’d give him about 10 minutes to collect himself and put him back in.”

Titans receiver Kenny Britt is on track to make his preseason debut on Thursday.

Cornerback Nathan Jones ran out of chances in Denver after a poor preseason effort.

Free agent pickup Jared Gaither is regularly practicing again and looks in line to be the Chiefs’ swing tackle.

It appears the Raiders have settled on their offensive line.

The very latest in the Chargers stadium search.

Tim McMahon of ESPNDallas.com calls deposed center Andre Gurode “overrated, overpaid and overweight.”  Other than that, he’s awesome.

The Giants need to find another solution on punt returns than rookie receiver Jerrel Jennigan.

Time is running short on the Eagles offensive line to find cohesion.

The Redskins quarterbacks are waiting like everyone else to find out who will start.

The injury to Bears running back Marion Barber is not considered serious. (Which means the talk about Chester Taylor getting cut is serious.)

John Niyo of the Detroit News wrote a touching tribute to colleague Tom Kowalski, who passed away Monday.

The Vikings are giving defensive end Everson Griffen some snaps at linebacker to make up for the lack of depth behind Erin Henderson.

Packers wideout James Jones re-signed in the offseason, but has been somewhat of a forgotten man this month.

Falcons center Todd McClure underwent knee surgery recently.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera isn’t sure how long he’ll play Cam Newton in the preseason finale.

There is concern in New Orleans that the Saints defense isn’t ready for the season.

Bucs DT Frank “Mount” Okam checks in at 370 pounds and just may be  a starter.

In the wake of Greg Toler’s injury, the Cardinals are splitting first-team reps at cornerback between Patrick Peterson and Richard Marshall.

Linebacker Na’il Diggs was among the Rams cuts Tuesday.

Here’s a solid case against giving the 49ers under Jim Harbaugh a honeymoon period.

Seahawks fifth-round pick safety Mark LeGree may not make the team.

    Wow Tom K Passes away and doesn’t even get a mention. 20+ years reporting on the Lions, and not even a RIP on the one liners. SAD :(

    Sorry man I missed it, my bag

    Tom K’s PFT obit was 6 articles down the page.

    Dalton prefers his Rifle nickname to ‘Red Rocket’… or the more appropriate ‘Random Rainbow’, describing his first two pro outings.

    one-liner replies

    buffalo – need to get on the horn to Flozell Adams, ASAP, hell get Nick Kaczur as well.

    jets – yeah “snoopy” is the Met Life mascot, huge insurer-investment nationwide

    Pats – Branch could be cut, fortunately he knows the Pats receiving routes better than Ocho-cinco

    Baltimore- how good of a signing was Lee Evans, finally gives them somebody that can legitimately stretch the field.

    Cincy – Dalton’s name will be the “Red Stain” if that line doesnt protect better.

    Cleveland – any takers on Laurence Maroney or Clinton Portis showing up?

    Tim McMahon – overrated or not, Gurode visited Seattle and 6 other teams are interested.
    Buffalo should be one of them.

    Cardinals – Patrick Peterson will be starting soon enough, they just want him fresh for the return threat.

    Raiders – Wiz , Jr. will start at LG, but they could also stand to kick the tires on some vets out there, including Nick Kaczur at RT, Barnes looks shaky.

    @tatum064 – Deion Branch will not be cut. That makes no sense at all.

  8. tatum064 says: Aug 30, 2011 1:08 PM

    @kellyb9, it wouldnt since he’s set to make 2.2 mil, so axe falls on deep WR Brandon Tate or Tiquan Underwood …he’s a free agent in 2012
