- Redskins owner Dan Snyder’s decision to sue Washington City Paper has attracted the attention of at least one member of Congress. Rep. Steve Cohen – a Democrat from Tennessee – will try again to pass a bill through the House of Representatives that prevents people from filing “strategic lawsuits against public participation.” Which basically means that a rich dude can’t file a meritless lawsuit simply for the purpose of obtaining revenge.
- This, I believe, qualifies as good news. The Bills players are donating $10,000 to support the help efforts being made in Joplin, Mo. Punter Brian Moorman also said the players are uniting with New Era, which will provide 10,000 pieces of clothing. Hopefully, they’re not all Bills hats.
- In the midst of praising DE Aaron Kampman, Jaguars GM Gene Smith also sheds light on his feelings for 2008 first-round pick Derrick Harvey. Smith doesn’t call Harvey a bust, but he doesn’t exactly say he’s the bedrock of the defense either.
- If you’re looking for the top ex-con athletes playing pro sports today, it should be no surprise to you that many of them are football players. From Plaxico Burress to Michael Vick, Forbes.com has you covered. Nice to see a jockey and a darts player (thrower?) in there, as well.
- Among the newsy items in this transcript of Patriots QB Tom Brady from his charity football game Friday: his surgically-repaired foot feels good; his newest haircut looks good; and he’s confident a solution to the lockout is forthcoming.
- In case you’ve forgotten about the NFL strike of 1987, CBSSports.com’s own Chuck Finder is here to remind you about how crazy it was.
- Titans S Myron Rolle’s parents always told him that he should try to transcend others’ lives. Looks like he’s trying to accomplish that this offseason.
- He won’t take part this year, but Falcons owner Arthur Blank says he’ll consider allowing Hard Knocks to film his team at some point in the future.
