Saturday morning one-liners

Vonta Leach AP

Bills WR Stevie Johnson already is recruiting players like 49ers S Dashon Goldson.  (It’s not tampering unless the team puts the player up to it.)

The Jets have signed three players with Arena League experience.  (Hey, you never know where you’re going to find your next personal punt protector.)

To tag or not to tag, that is the question for the Patriots, as debated by Mike Reiss and Field Yates of ESPNBoston.com.

The Dolphins continue to conduct junior training camps at local elementary schools.  (Sometimes, the fruit just hangs too low.)

The Ravens have a tough decision to make with FB Vonta Leach, who participated in only 42 percent of the snaps in 2012.

Hawaii CB Mike Edwards, a Cleveland native, wants to play for the Browns.

Players who get tagged by the Bengals typically stay only one more year.

Former Steelers RB Carey Davis is pursuing an acting career.

Titans LB Will Witherspoon hopes to play four more years, even though he lost his starting job in 2012.

Colts owner Jim Irsay says that, if the Colts have earned the third overall pick or lower in 2012, they would have kept QB Peyton Manning.

Jaguars president Mark Lamping talks about the effort to build enhanced video boards at EverBank Field; “If we don’t keep up, we’re falling behind. We can’t afford to do that in a market this size, because if we do, then we put the franchise at risk,” Lamping said.

Texans LB Brooks Reed could move from the outside to the inside in 2013.  (And it’s time for a question from Gronk:  “Don’t they already play in a dome?”)

Factoring in the trade for QB Alex Smith, the Chiefs will have $7.5 million in cap space, which means they’d have to create more of it to tag WR Dwayne Bowe.

Broncos defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio was scheduled to speak at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference.  (His comments may or may not have touched upon properly managing water bills.)

Here’s a look at the Chargers who could be cutting their pay in order to help the team clear cap space.

Raiders LS Jon Condo will receive the team’s 2012 Commitment to Excellence Award on March 9.  (The fruit still hangs too low.)

Cowboys CB Brandon Carr says he restructured his contract because he’s a “team player.”

Giants coach Tom Coughlin reunited with players from his first head-coaching gig, at Rochester Institute of Technology, way back in 1970.

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and his ex-wife are still making movies together.

Suing the league over cap space could mean that the Redskins would never host a Super Bowl.

DE Chris Canty will visit the Packers next week, his agent confirmed.

LB Nick Roach hopes to return to the Bears, at the right price.

LB Justin Durant hopes to return to the Lions, at the right price.

Vikings P Chris Kluwe explains that, when inappropriate questions are posed at the Scouting Combine, the prospective rookie can’t say “go eff yourself.”

The bounty scandal emerged for the Saints one year ago today.

Former Falcons DE John Abraham still wants to see the team do well, even after it cut him.

Friday’s moves leave the Panthers $3.5 million over the cap, a problem that will be solved as soon as they cut CB Chris Gamble.

With their division rivals dumping a pass rusher, the Buccaneers have even greater incentive to keep DE Michael Bennett off the open market.

ESPN’s Trent Dilfer thinks 49ers (for now) QB Alex Smith will be in even better position in Chiefs coach Andy Reid’s offense.

It’s been 11 years since the Seahawks introduced the uniforms they abandoned a year ago.

Rams COO Kevin Demoff on analytics in football:  “There is so much in play with respect to the team’s system . . . there is so much covariance in a football game because there are so many other factors.”

Hearing-impaired advocates have sued the Cardinals for failing to provide appropriate accommodations.  (Apparently, the Cardinals aren’t keen on putting “the crowd is booing . . . again” on the video boards.)

    The one liner for my Niners is for the Chiefs. Plus just because I didn’t say anything last week doesn’t mean I didn’t miss ‘em.

    I doubt snyder is gonna care about getting a super bowl at fedex field. The other owners already hate him and exclude him so it isn’t like suing would change the dynamic between he and the other owners. He literally has nothing to lose and I hope he sues.

    All cynicism aside, the Lurie’s produce fantastic documentary films. However, considering how the Eagles are managed, my guess is that Christina has a lot more to do with the success of the movies than Jeffrey.

    I don’t get the Colts one.

    if they wouldve gotten anyhting lower than a #2 pick last year, they wouldve either drafted Luck or IRG3 or wouldve just kept peyton and hoped he was back to health fully

    Jaguars’ president Mark Lamping says, “Pony up, Jacksonville, or we’re outta here….”.
