Paul Tagliabue is calling it quits. Roger Goodell, the NFL's chief operating officer, and Atlanta general manager Rich McKay are the two leading candidates to succeed Tagliabue. Baltimore Ravens president Dick Cass is considered a dark horse. Anyone have thoughts on these three, or any other potential commissioners?

It's official: the Lions are moving forward without Joey Harrington. Well, it's not quite official, but according to the AP, "[Marinelli] declined to say whether Harrington had been released but he told reporters Monday: 'We've made a decision to move on... At this moment, he's not with us... That's been my decision.'"

Peter King has some thoughts on the Cowboys signing T.O., David Givens bolting for the Titans, the Sopranos and his NCAA tournament bracket.

It looks like the Ravens may wait until after the draft before adding some warm bodies at the quarterback position. Instead of settling on guys like Kerry Collins or Brian Griese now, Baltimore could try and land Steve McNair after April 30th depending on whether the Titans draft a QB and think Billy Volek can hold down the fort in the meantime. It will be interesting to see what happens if Tennessee doesn't release McNair and Collins and Griese have signed elsewhere.

Well, it looks like the Jets and Redskins split the difference. Yesterday I mentioned that New York was only willing to give up a seventh round pick for Patrick Ramsey while Washington was looking for a fourth rounder. Today the Jets got Ramsey for a sixth round pick. New York inherits Ramsey's contract, which only has a year left, so it'll be interesting to see what kind of deal they'll give him, and when they'll do it.

The good news: The Patriots are currently $20 million under the cap. The bad news: They haven't signed anyone to replace Willie McGinest, and currently have two WRs on the roster now that David Givens is a Titan. So what gives? Michael Felger has some thoughts on several free agents who might fit well in New England (with the added benefit of getting Monty Beisel off the field).

Drew Rosenhaus has denied reports that Terrell Owens and the Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement on a contract, but Jay Glazer reports that a deal has, in fact, been reached. I'm just looking forward to learning the terms of the deal he eventually signs. I can't imagine that he'll end up with more money than he would have if he had just kept his mouth shut and played in Philadelphia. And what kind of clauses will his deal in Dallas have to ensure that he's on his best behavior?

The Lions have signed Josh McCown, giving them five quarterbacks on the roster -- McCown, Joey Harrington, Jon Kitna, Shaun King and Dan Orlovsky. They'll likely bring four to training camp. Which one do you think will be released before then? Could it be the one who's owed $8.5 million this year?

Hey folks, we want your help with a project we are working on to put together a database of the starting offensive line for each team for the period 1997-2003. (2004-2005 are done already.) How can you help? In the comments, list the main starters from your favorite team for each of those seven years, as well as you can remember, with positions: LT, LG, C, RG, RT. (Yes, we know there are injuries, but we're looking for the guys who started the majority of the games.) If your favorite team is already entered in the comments, no need to list them again, but we're trying to get all 32 teams.

The Jets want a quarterback and they'd like to get rid of John Abraham in the process. Unfortunately, one of their targets, Matt Schaub, isn't for sale (the Falcons like Abraham, but not enough to part with a first round pick). The Jets are also interested in Patrick Ramsey, but the Redskins are asking for a fourth round pick while New York is only offering a seventh. Meanwhile, Matt Leinart has expressed interest in playing in New York, but Tennessee could take him before the Jets get a chance.

Antonio Brown is a late-round steal, but which active WR has beaten the odds of the draft and his QB? We studied the breakout seasons of the 20 all-time leading receivers and recent hidden gems. How important is QB play in developing a WR?
