- What do Redskins GM Bruce Allen and Charlie Sheen have in common? WINNING, obviously. As in, “You should know that the current status of the Collective Bargaining Agreement will not disrupt our preparation for the 2011 season or swerve our focus from the Redskins’ objective -- WINNING.” What would have made this even more awesome? If Allen had added the word, “DUH.”
- A woman has been convicted of killing the pregnant girlfriend of former Bears DB Shaun Gayle. A Lake County, Ill., jury found that Marni Young meticulously planned out an execution of a woman she considered a romantic rival for Gayle. The woman faces a 45-year maximum term. The victim was seven months pregnant with Gayle’s child.
- Apparently, the Steelers are huge fans of the Pouncey family. As you know, C Maurkice Pouncey established himself as a huge presence for the Pittsburgh offensive line last year, and if Pittsburgh had the choice, it’d take Mike Pouncey in next month’s NFL draft and put him at right guard.
- As CBSSports.com’s own Mike Freeman writes, don’t expect the Wild, Wild West with no CBA. The NFL should not descend into chaos after all.
- Cowboys practice squad WR Troy Bergeron will return to the Arena Football League and will join the Cleveland Gladiators. There’s no lockout there from what I understand.
- Saints QB Drew Brees, one of the lead plaintiffs on the Brady v. NFL case, is putting together group workouts in New Orleans that will occur in May.
- If you’re looking to interview the Jets coaches and executives during the lockout, good luck. Because that won’t be happening. UPDATE (1:09): The Jets are saying that the requests will be looked at on a case-by-case basis.
- Some former NFL players are more than just big-time opera fans. Some of them actually sing.
- The Lions played host to former Nebraska CB Prince Amukamara and former Cal DE Cameron Jordan. Said Amukamara: "I should be licking my chops to go out there. I played with Suh at Nebraska and he made the games and life a lot easier for me.”
