Quick Hits from Around the League


One of the greatest times of the year continues.  Teams are working to fill all the holes on their rosters and trying to keep as many of their own guys as they can.  It’s the time of year when teams and fans alike can dream of the upcoming season being a success.  It’s the NFL where going from worst to first isn’t impossible, afterall.

Here are today’s quick hits from around the league.

Cowboys tackle Mark Colombo will not be getting a new, extended deal from the team.  He has had problems staying healthy and his contract next year is a bargain for the team.  While Flozell Adams has an offer from Dallas for three years but he feels like he can get a better deal elsewhere.  (Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

Brian Billick, former Ravens head coach, told the Baltimore Sun that he isn’t done with coaching.  Whether another team hires him or not is another story for another day.

Jamal Lewis just signed a new deal with Cleveland a couple of days ago.  Today, Pro Football Talk reports that the deal is worth $6.5 million next season and $3.5 million guaranteed in ’09.

The Tampa Tribune reports that Bucs safety Kalvin Pearson has turned down a $927,000 offer from the team.  He wants a multi-year deal.  He was mostly a special teamer last season and will likely become a free agent.

According to the Baltimore Sun, Ravens safety Gerome Sapp and former Ravens long snapper Joe Maese refused to testify against each other in court.  Back in December, they had filed assault charges against one another but the judge found them not guilty due to a lack of testimony.

Bengals linebacker Landon Johnson may be hitting the free agent market while his teammate Madieu Williams may join him, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
