    Vikings | Team reportedly shopping Culpepper again

    Vikings | Team reportedly shopping Culpepper again
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 18:27:25 -0800

    Adam Schefter, of the NFL Network, reports the Minnesota Vikings are reportedly once again shopping QB Daunte Culpepper. One NFL team confirmed that the Vikings have begun shopping Culpepper again, ascertaining whether another team would be willing to deal for him. The big concern to other teams is Culpepper's knee. However, those close to Culpepper believe he is going to be completely recovered from his knee injury and that the quarterback is rehabbing almost freakishly. There should be some resolution to the story by March 17, the date that Culpepper's $6 million roster bonus is due.

    Bills | Moulds rejects team's second offer

    Bills | Moulds rejects team's second offer
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 17:28:58 -0800

    John Wawrow, of the Associated Press, reports Buffalo Bills WR Eric Moulds has rejected a second offer from the Bills to take a pay cut. Moulds' personal advisor, Greg Johnson, said, "This thing is going nowhere. The dollars they're presenting at this particular time are much too low. We're way too far apart to have an intelligent conversation anymore." The Bills are expected to release Moulds, saving the team $5.5 million in salary cap space.

    Jets | Abraham drawing interest

    Jets | Abraham drawing interest
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 15:57:57 -0800

    NFL.com reports agents Tony Agnone and Rich Rosa, said on a conference call that four or five teams said they were "definitely interested" in New York Jets franchise DE John Abraham, but they declined to name them. "Change is good and for John Abraham moving forward, change would be good for him," Rosa said. "You get to a point in your career as a player when there's been some unfulfilled promises, you have to move through that because it's a business. That's what we've been able to do with John, have his sights set on a brighter future." Agnone and Rosa said in the best case scenario, they would come to a long-term deal with an interested team and then have the new club work out a trade with the Jets.




    I wish he was drawing interest from us

    Eagles | McNabb, Trotter no-shows for court over parking violations

    Eagles | McNabb, Trotter no-shows for court over parking violations
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 13:34:21 -0800

    Sam Wood, of the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles QB Donovan McNabb and LB Jeremiah Trotter did not appear for a mandatory court appearance Wednesday, March 1, in a South Jersey municipal courtroom. The players are accused of parking in a handicapped spot at a sports bar where Trotter hosted a radio show. A judge rejected letters of defense sent by agents working for the players and said that the players must appear or be represented by an attorney. McNabb and Trotter were cited for failing to appear and will have their hearings rescheduled.

    Chargers | Doctor releases medical report on Brees

    Chargers | Doctor releases medical report on Brees
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 13:10:15 -0800

    John Clayton, of ESPN.com, reports Dr. James Andrews released an encouraging medical report on San Diego Chargers QB Drew Brees' surgically repaired right shoulder, saying that Brees' strength is rapidly improving and that he is expected to make a full recovery for the start of the 2006 season. Brees is scheduled to become a free agent, as Chargers general manager A.J. Smith has said the team has concerns over Brees' surgery which have limited the teams' financial commitment. Andrews' report said that Brees could be allowed to participate in a team's minicamp in May. "At this point, he is eight plus weeks post-op and is ahead of schedule relative to his healing process and recovery," Andrews said.

    Colts | Ruling impacts team's salary cap status

    Colts | Ruling impacts team's salary cap status
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 06:10:53 -0800

    Mike Chappell, of the Indianapolis Star, reports a ruling Wednesday, March 1, by an NFL arbitrator specifically regarding the contracts of QB Peyton Manning and WR Marvin Harrison could result in several significant player cuts by the Indianapolis Colts as they attempt to comply with the league's projected 2006 salary cap of $95 million. At issue, for now, are roster bonuses of $9 million due Manning and $10 million due Harrison. The Colts intended to implement a normal bookkeeping maneuver that converts a roster bonus into a signing bonus and prorating it over the next four years. That would have lowered Manning's 2006 cap number from $17.766 million to $10 million and Harrison's cap hit from $14.4 million to $6.9 million. The lack of an extension carries restrictive guidelines regarding player contracts, including the conversion of roster bonuses. According to NFL spokesman Greg Aiello, arbitrator Stephen Burbank ruled such conversions are prohibited under the labor agreement if they violate the so-called "30 percent rule,'' which keeps base salaries from increasing more than 30 percent each year over the first year of the contract. It's believed a special master's ruling is final, but Colts' owner Jim Irsay said the issue is far from resolved.


    Steelers | Teammates make pitches to keep Randle El
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 06:06:33 -0800

    Ed Bouchette, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, reports QB Ben Roethlisberger and WR Hines Ward have made their pitches to WR Antwaan Randle El to re-sign with the team. Randle El does not believe the lack of a collective bargaining agreement extension in the league will affect him. Randle El did acknowledge that negotiations have gone nowhere with the Steelers, and the uncertainty of the collective bargaining agreement might be a reason. Ward said he hoped the Steelers would keep Randle El, but talked as if he were already gone, joining WR Plaxico Burress as consecutive starting split ends lost through free agency. "If we don't have Antwaan, the next guy who comes in has to step up and perform, just like when we lost Plax," Ward said. "Everybody kept saying we couldn't win when we lost Plax and here we are Super Bowl champions!"

    NFL | Police and courts: L. Phillips

    NFL | Police and courts: L. Phillips
    Thu, 2 Mar 2006 05:26:46 -0800

    The Associated Press reports former NFL RB Lawrence Phillips has been ordered to stand trial on assault charges for allegedly driving a car into three teenagers who argued with him following a pickup football game. The judge dismissed two counts of child abuse and one count of leaving the scene of an accident stemming from the Aug. 21, 2005, incident on a South Los Angeles soccer field. Phillips faces more than 13 years in prison if convicted of all counts, said Deborah Brazil, a deputy district attorney.

    Dolphins | Team shaves $12.8 million off salary cap Wednesday

    Dolphins | Team shaves $12.8 million off salary cap Wednesday
    Wed, 1 Mar 2006 21:35:18 -0800

    Alex Marvez, of the Sun-Sentinel, reports the Miami Dolphins shaved $12.8 million off of its 2006 salary cap Wednesday, March 2. With the 2006 salary cap set at $94.5 million, the Dolphins still have $6.6 million in salary to eliminate before they are under the cap. If a new collective bargaining agreement is made, the cap could jump to between $105 million and $110 million. The team has until 10 p.m. to make sure they are within the cap's restrictions.

    Re: Lots of players cut from teams

    This salary cap and cap casualties kills me. Every year players are moving from 1 team to another because of money. What happened to loyalty and the love of the game. I thought it was every players dream to play in the NFL, If that's not true than go play something else.

    How much is enough, loyalty to a specific player is tough. The players are only hurting themselves in the long run.

    The Team ( ST LOUIS RAMS ) that's where my loyalties are, forget about the individuals.

    :tongue:

    Packers | Chatman now an unrestricted free agent
    Fri, 3 Mar 2006 05:26:49 -0800

    Bob McGinn, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers have decided not to tender an offer to restricted free agent WR Antonio Chatman, allowing him to become an unrestricted free agent. "Reggie McKenzie told me it's a new system and they want big receivers," agent Mark Mersel said, referring to the team's director of pro personnel. "I'm surprised. He's surprised. I thought he could be in Green Bay for the long run. But if they don't want to respect a guy with a big heart, then so be it."

    He would be a good cheap pickup for a return man.
