- Eagles defensive line coach Jim Washburn "badly" wants Albert Haynesworth, according to a Yahoo report. Washburn coached Haynesworth in Tennessee.
- Michael Clayton, the Bucs first-round pick in 2004, says his football career isn't over. In the last two seasons he caught 18 passes for 249 yards. After spending the first six years of his career in Tampa Bay, Clayton played with the Giants in 2010.
- Presumably, the plan is still to trade Kevin Kolb to the highest bidder, but according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Eagles would prefer to use Mike Kafka as a third-string QB next season. Vince Young, come on down!
- When Plaxico Burress was released from prison last month, the Eagles were considered one of the teams most likely to sign him. Now that the new-freedom smell has worn off, it sounds as if Burress is near the bottom of Philly's offseason to-do list.
- When talking about free-agent cornerbacks, the conversation usually involves Nnamdi Asomugha, Johnathan Joseph and Ike Taylor. Brent Grimes, a restricted free agent, might be the most underrated CB of the bunch.
- Soon-to-be Jets free agent Brad Smith says he'd like to throw more passes out of wildcat formations next season. Smith is a former college quarterback and one of the most versatile players in the league.
- Fumble-prone early in his career, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson hopes to be fumble-free in 2011. It sounds preposterous, but he only fumbled once last year.
- Jay Cutler didn't crack the NFL Network's Top 100 players, but teammates Devin Hester, Brian Urlacher, Julius Peppers and Lance Briggs did. Even less surprising than Cutler not making the cut? Dhani Jones was noticeably absent. This comes as a shock to no one, not even Jones.
