Looks like we mark this one on the "Jerious Norwood" segment of our Top 25 Prospects list. With Tashard Choice hurt, and the team needing his roster spot to activate Bruce Carter, the Cowboys have elected to waive him. Choice was very effective as a change-of-pace back in 2008 and 2009, but struggled last season and had -58 rushing DYAR through Week 7, which places him below every running back not named Chris Johnson.

Something reeks in Miami, but who dealt it? Was Carson Palmer any more successful at figuring out the Raiders PR playbook? That and more in this week's best quotes.

This is a larger question than just "what's wrong with Chris Johnson?," and we look at it a different way. What has happened in the past to teams whose offenses were as unbalanced as those of Tennessee and Minnesota?

More Tim Tebow than you can shake a stick at, a check-in on the first start of the Christian Ponder era, and the Colts go to the glue factory.

Citing an acute case of "losing his passion for the game," Saints center Olin Kreutz has decided to leave New Orleans. He won't file retirement papers, but it seems like he has lost interest in playing. Having to play through an MCL sprain probably didn't help matters.
The Saints will turn to Brian De La Puente at center.

The Lions, looking for more of a power back behind Jahvid Best, have traded Jerome Harrison and an undisclosed 2013 draft pick (rumored to be a seventh-rounder) to Philadelphia for Ronnie Brown.

Per Pete Thamel of The New York Times, Missouri leaving the Big 12 for the SEC is now "inevitable and imminent," but there is no timeline for it to do so. Should that go down, the Big 12 will likely look to replenish via the Big East (or rumored soon-to-be Big East members), which could hurt their chances of retaining an automatic BCS bowl bid.

Here is your deadline blockbuster: The Raiders acquired Carson Palmer from the Bengals for their 2012 first-round pick and a conditional pick in 2013 that could also be a first-rounder. According to Chris Mortensen, the 2013 pick is a first-rounder if the Raiders win a playoff game in 2011, if not, it is a second-rounder.
