Saturday one-liners

The Bills’ offseason schedule culminates with a mandatory minicamp that opens on June 19.

Here are five team needs for the Dolphins.  (They left out “new owner.”)

Undrafted in 2009, Pats QB Brian Hoyer has signed his second-round RFA tender.

Jacksonville may be Jets QB Tim Tebow’s hometown, but New Jersey may be his homeland.

The Ravens opted for patience in free agency, before adding four guys in one day.

CB Pacman Jones is glad to be back with the Bengals; “This is where my heart is at and hopefully I can show what I can do,” Jones said. “I didn’t play like I wanted to last year but I’m eager to get back on the field.  I know what I can do and am confident in my skills.”

When Browns offensive coordinator Brad Childress was told he was destined to become a football coach, Childress “vehemently objected.”  (At least he didn’t “strenuously object.”)

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin has two years left on his contract, but the team holds an option for 2013, which makes him a lame duck in 2012.

With Texans TE Joel Dreessen headed for Denver, James Casey and Garrett Graham will compete for playing time behind Owen Daniels.

Colts LT Anthony Castonzo must move on without Jeff Saturday or Ryan Diem:  “It’s like they provided me with the foundation,” Castonzo said.  “Now it’s up to me to build off it.”

Despite the insistence of certain self-styled football professors who believed that the signing of Chad Henne slammed the door on a push for Tim Tebow, the Jaguars truly did want him.

Titans WR Lavelle Hawkins thinks the team is better off without Peyton Manning.

There could be more “in with the old and out with the new” in Denver.

Chiefs NT Kelly Gregg, 35, is a free agent and may retire.

Raiders G.M. Reggie McKenzie knew that RB Michael Bush wouldn’t be back; “That’s more than we could do,” McKenzie said regarding Bush’s four-year, $14 million deal. “That’s the way it goes.”

Although nine of 11 free-agent acquisitions play offense, Chargers G.M. A.J. Smith says he’s not ignoring the defense.

The Cowboys didn’t use an RFA tender on WR Kevin Ogletree, but he has been re-signed to a one-year deal.

Here’s a look at what the Giants have behind WR Hakeem Nicks and WR Victor Cruz.

At a time when veteran running backs are getting paid like kickers, it won’t be a chip-shot for the Eagles to sign RB LeSean McCoy to a long-term deal.

Right tackle remains a question mark for the Redskins.

Former WVU DE Bruce Irvin will visit the Bears before the draft.

The Lions may have gotten some bargains in free agency.

The Packers remain interested in LB Manny Lawson and DE Dave Tollefson.

61 percent of Minnesotans prefer the Vikings stadium plan currently being proposed.

The Falcons have re-signed LS Joe Zelenka and DT Vance Walker, who signed an RFA tender.

Panther QB Cam Newton has been on the road a lot this offseason, but he has taken a trainer with him; “[H]e’s not just drinking piña coladas sitting by the pool,” Newton’s father said.

Saints coach Sean Payton will lose $5.8 million, not $7 million, during his suspension.

Former Bucs RB Kregg Lumpkin has joined the Seahawks.

Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson has been recruiting William Gay to Arizona via Twitter.

The Rams continue to talk to potential free agents, including G Chilo Rachal, G Robert Turner, T Barry Richardson, and LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar.

For QB Josh Johnson, joining the 49ers and his former college coach was a no-brainer; “Why not . . . grow up in the pros under the same coaching staff that I grew up in college under?” Johnson said.

The Seahawks targeted RB Kregg Lumpkin after Mike Tolbert and Michael Bush went elsewhere.

    Out with Stephen Ross and his disgusting desire to win!

    In with a owner who can pull a franchise QB out of his rear!

    1.2 million dollars Payton gets for just watching football on his 60 inch flat screen at his home.

    Hundred Grand a Month. Kind of hard to pay all the monthly bills off of that.

    ———————————————————-

    That status fits well with all of Steeler Nation.

    Tomlin’s a “lame duck” on a very LAME team…

    I wish the Steelers would exercise their option of getting rid of Pig Ben Rottenberger!
