Not much going on right now, but here's the latest. Enjoy:
Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones believes the release of Terrell Owens will allow Tony Romo to spread the ball around more. Sam Hurd said the same thing the day Owens was cut. Jones said the decision to cut loose Owens had little to do with locker room chemistry, but he admits it had something to do with on-field chemistry. When you have a receiver like Owens, quarterbacks cater to him whether they know it or not. He was the target of 140 throws last season, tied for ninth in the NFL. He needs, wants, craves the football and even when he was the intended target 20 times against Washington -- whether the passes were catchable or not -- he wasn't happy.
The Eagles have contacted the agent for Bills free agent linebacker Angelo Crowell but have not made a contract offer, NFL.com is reporting. Crowell is represented by Todd France, who also represents Brian Westbrook. Crowell visited Detroit on Wednesday and Tampa Bay on Monday, according to the report. St. Louis also has expressed interest.
General Manager Rod Graves denied a report by profootballtalk.com that the team is "shopping" receiver Anquan Boldin to potential trade partners. The report was attributed to an unnamed NFL source. Via text message, Graves said the Cardinals position regarding Boldin has not changed. Boldin first asked for a trade about a year ago, and the Cardinals have consistently said they were not interested in trading the Pro Bowl receiver. Graves, however, has left open the possibility that the team's stance could one day change. Boldin has two years remaining on a four-year extension signed in 2005. That extension was worth about $23 million in new money, including $10 million in bonuses. Boldin recently backed off a promise never to re-sign with the Cardinals. Through his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, Boldin said he would be willing to re-sign provided an offer was forthcoming in a reasonable amount of time.
The Vikings' plan remains to have Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson compete for the starting job in training camp. There are no plans for any trading or for free-agency signings. The defending NFC North Division champions plan next to improve through the draft.
Note to NFL linebackers: Gisele Bundchen gives some insight into the psyche of the starting quarterback of the New England Patriots that you may find useful as you try to take his head off next year. In the cover story of Harper Bazaar's April issue, Bundchen says Tom Brady, her new husband, is "very naive, almost like a child."
