-Packers DE Cullen Jenkins wants a new contract. He’s saying the fact the Green Bay front office hasn’t talked with him about it is a slap in the face. He also wants Darnell Dockett money ($48 million with $30 million guaranteed).
-Former OT Willie Anderson, who visited Bengals practice this week, would like to return at some point and teach more. Although he finished his career in Baltimore, he said returning to Cincinnati was like coming home.
-The irrelevant Freddie Mitchell decided to rip Donovan McNabb this week. For some reason.
-Former Ravens DE Trevor Pryce signed with the Jets on Thursday, practiced Friday and Rex Ryan wants to play him Sunday. It helps that the defensive playbooks for the Ravens and the Jets are very similar.
-Steelers FS Ryan Clark doesn’t appear all that impressed with Baltimore’s squad. Said Clark: “To me, the Ravens are just another football team. They don't come in here wearing a cape. I am not scared they are going to take my lunch money. ” You might remember that in the 2008 AFC championship game, Clark’s hit on Willis McGahee knocked the Ravens RB out of the game.
-San Diego LB Shaun Phillips reached a conditional settlement with a man who sued him for allegedly punching him in the face in April of 2009. Phillips, though, still has to face another lawsuit from a woman who claimed that Phillips struck her and injured her in Las Vegas in February 2008. He was not charged by police in either case.
The $11 million verdict awarded to former Dolphins WR O.J. McDuffie has been tossed out by a Miami-Dade judge. Looks like they’re going to do this whole thing over again. As we all know, going to trial again doesn't generally work for guys named O.J.
