Wednesday morning one-liners

Signing QB Vince Young would make sense from the perspective of Bills coach Chan Gailey, who has always liked mobile quarterbacks.

Here’s a look at how much the Dolphins will pay their rookies.

New Patriot Jonathan Fanene on the difference between the atmosphere in New England and his old team, Cincinnati: “I see guys focused more, and not just the workout, but in everything we do here. It’s more of a team effort. Guys welcome me inside the locker room. It’s just hard-working, do-the-job type of atmosphere.”

The Jets are pulling together for a fan who needs a bone marrow transplant.

The Ravens may have gotten a steal by drafting Miami WR Tommy Streeter in the sixth round.

Bengals QB Andy Dalton, like many rookies, says the speed of the game was the biggest adjustment he had to make from college to his rookie year in the NFL.

Here’s a look at the background of Browns second-round pick Mitchell Schwartz.

Says Steelers G.M. Kevin Colbert, “When you put a draft board together, you are just hoping and you know where you want to add some youth and competition. You let the board dictate when it’s going to be available, and sometimes it fits together.”

Inconsistency was the problem for WR Jacoby Jones, who was released by the Texans.

Said Colts QB Chandler Harnish of being Mr. Irrelevant, “It has been a little overwhelming. I’ve been getting a ton of phone calls, and I’ve done a ton of radio shows and interviews, but at the same time it’s a good problem to have. I’d rather be getting a lot of phone calls than none at all, because if I didn’t get any then I probably didn’t succeed in my goal of getting drafted.”

The Jaguars are giving K Long Ding a chance to become the first native of China to make it in the NFL.

Titans WR Kendall Wright should be able to step in and contribute immediately.

New Bronco Brock Osweiler says it’s a thrill to be drafted by John Elway.

Chiefs WR Steve Breaston says he’s ready to be the team’s go-to guy.

New Raiders QB Matt Leinart already knows the system run by Oakland offensive coordinator Greg Knapp.

A cricket club in India called the Chargers is on the list of the highest-paying sports teams in the world, but the San Diego Chargers are not.

Morris Claiborne wants to have the ball in his hands in Dallas.

Giants CB Prince Amukamara thinks the Patriots got a steal when they drafted his old teammate at Nebraska, Alfonzo Dennard.

For one draft prospect from Philadelphia, the disappointment of going undrafted was erased by signing with the Eagles.

Everyone in Washington is continuing to ask why drafting Kirk Cousins was a good idea for the Redskins.

Bears QB Jay Cutler isn’t saying much about his baby on the way, but WR Earl Bennett confirmed that Cutler is having a boy.

For WR Lance Long, signing with the Lions is a dream come true.

Says new Packer Nick Perry, “I have the raw skills and the mind to do it. I think I have a lot to bring to the table. There’s a lot of potential that needs to be taken out of me. I’m going to Green Bay, to a great tradition that’s going to help me improve my game and become a better player for years to come.”

The Vikings wanted a shot at undrafted free agent OT Trevor Olson, but he picked the Buccaneers instead.

The Falcons have picked up another undrafted free agent in Cal WR Michael Calvin.

The Panthers believe first-round pick Luke Kuechly can play all three linebacker positions, which is helpful with question marks surrounding the health of Jon Beason (Achilles) and Thomas Davis (ACL).

Saints WR Nick Toon will wear his dad’s number.

The experiment of playing Ronde Barber at safety may have come to an end when the Buccaneers drafted Mark Barron.

Cardinals QB Kevin Kolb wants to prove the doubters wrong.

The Rams are trying to keep their stadium negotiations a secret, and some folks in St. Louis say that’s the way it should be.

Last year the 49ers used an average of 1.8 wide receivers per play. This year they have more talent and depth at the position and are expected to use more multiple-receiver sets.

Seahawks K Steven Hauschka has signed his one-year restricted free agent tender.

    Is Jacksonvilles kicker Long Ding any relation to Long Duk Dong from “16 Candles”?

    “Chiefs WR Steve Breaston says he’s ready to be the team’s go-to guy.”

    You’re still behind Dwayne Bowe as long as he’s on the team…

    A kicker named Long Ding!! This clearly deserved its own post. I’m disappointed in you, PFT.

    “A cricket club in India called the Chargers is on the list of the highest-paying sports teams in the world, but the San Diego Chargers are not.”

    The San Diego Chargers, LOL!

    Is that a joke? Who names there kid long? Especially Long Ding…

  6. pastabelly says: May 2, 2012 11:16 AM

    Wow, the guy’s name is really Nick Toon. I think FIOS has that one channel up from Nick at Night. Al Toon was an overrated Jet.

    Tell Clairborne if he wants the ball in his hands to intercept the ball on Defense……That is why he was drafted, wasn’t it?

  8. suicidalionsfan says: May 2, 2012 1:47 PM

    is Long Ding related to Lance Long ? Or better yet, co-stars. Imagine the poor pin cushion actress in THAT flick . Yikes

    Hey Fanene, the Bengals got better at D Line after you left. Have a nice career.

    I am hoping tomorrow’s one-liners will include a note about the Packers releasing Hargrove. I am confident they will do it, but the sooner the better both for the good name of the team and so they can get someone else lined up and ready to take his place.

    Chawk12thman ur absolutely right!!! Claiborne got drafted bcuz of his cover skills not receiving…He maybe a good db but he’s no Deion Sanders…even tho Prime wasn’t that good @ wr…just a threat everytime the ball was in his hands carrying as it was a loaf of bread..
