Red Flagged

It's hard to believe that given all that has transpired, Marcus Vick was at one time considered a first or second-round talent. Now, he'll be lucky to get drafted. Greg Garber takes a look at how teams are becoming more and more diligent in assessing players' character, which given all the money involved is probably a good idea.

MMQB: Market Fallout

Peter King believes we place too much emphasis on the draft at the expense of talking free agency, which he says is a more important part of the NFL off-season.

Cowboys Want More Show From T.O.

Let the fun begin! (And yes, this is what we're reduced to discussing when the next most interesting football-related topic is the Rashaun Woods-for-Sammy Davis trade that nobody cares about.)

Everybody Wants to Play Football

Two stories out today about former college basketball standouts trying to make the transition to the NFL. We've already talked about Jai Lewis, but here's another article from the Washington Post. He has signed with an agent and is cramming two months of pro day preparation into two weeks (who knows, maybe LenDale's hammy will be better by then). And even though he may not get drafted, he's currently listed as a "priority free agent."

LenDale White Has Torn Hamstring

This explains a lot but I don't think it'll really influence White's draft position. If he was a mid-to-late first round pick with a good hammy, he's probably still a mid-to-late first round pick with a tweaked hammy. It's not like he blew out his knee or has a degenerative hip injury and is facing a grueling recovery with an uncertain future.

High Schools Ban Fumblerooski

We don't often talk high school football around here, but we don't often have a story this important. The fumblerooski, that wonderful trick play that gives offensive linemen the chance to score, has been banned by the National Federation of State High School Associations. The game just got a little less fun.

Sean Taylor Trial Delayed Again

From the AP: "The lead prosecutor in the assault case against Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor stepped aside Wednesday after defense lawyers charged that he was using his prominence in the case to promote his moonlighting work as a nightclub disc jockey."

If Sean Taylor's defense team was smart, they'd beg to keep this guy on as lead prosecutor.

Seymour, Pats Agree to Long-Term Extension

Huh. I thought I heard Adam Schefter say earlier this spring that the Pats were interested in keeping Seymour, but because they re-worked his deal last August, they have to wait at least 12 months before renegotiating a new contract. Guess Schefter was wrong. Or I misunderstood. Or both. Either way, this should make Pats fans happy.

Marinelli is Loud and Clear

After reading this you have to wonder what Stever Mariucci was doing last season. How does one of your wide receivers end up weighing 239 pounds? Rod Marinelli has taken a more serious approach, but yelling and screaming about being on time will only get you so far (like through minicamp). At some point you have to coach 'em up.
