Hot Routes 6.24.11: Negotiations go on and on

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

  • As CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman reports, the owners and players are negotiating again today. They’re just not doing it in person.
  • Jets WR Brad Smith, who’s been working out with Mark Sanchez at player-led workouts, thinks it’s a bit awkward for him to be with potential former teammates. That’s because Smith is a free agent and doesn’t know if he’ll be back in New York next season.
  • CBSSports.com’s own Andy Benoit, writing for the NY Times, ranks his top-10 safeties in the NFL. Unlike Pete Prisco, Benoit doesn’t think Troy Polamalu is overrated at all.
  • Looks like we have another locked-out football player who’s taking up boxing to stay in shape. That would be Chargers RB Mike Tolbert, who says boxing is the roughest workout he’s ever had.
  • The Jets will not be traveling to Cortland, N.Y., this season for their regularly-scheduled training camp. Instead, because the lockout hasn’t been lifted, they’ll prepare themselves at their regular home in Florham Park, N.J. The Jets plan to return to Cortland in 2012.
  • In a heartwarming tale, 136 members of the Chiefs organization traveled to Joplin, Mo., to help clean up the town that was decimated by tornados.
  • Warren Sapp and Michael Strahan don’t think former Giants RB Tiki Barber should attempt a comeback. In the case of Strahan, there are clearly still some hurt feelings for the way Barber criticized the Giants after he retired and became a network analyst.

Weis is good as gone in KC

Charlie Weis has taken the offensive coordinator job at the University of Florida. Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Today will be the last regular-season game for Charlie Weis as the Chiefs offensive coordinator before he takes the same position with new coach Will Muschamp at the University of Florida. That’s the official word from the Kansas City Star.

Does the move make sense?

I’m not sure. It seems that moving from an OC position in the NFL to an OC position in college football is a lateral jump at best. It certainly couldn’t be seen as a promotion.

But if Weis wanted more autonomy as an assistant coach, he could be more inclined to get it from Muschamp (though that autonomy didn’t exactly work out well at Notre Dame, did it?).

Either way, this opens the door for former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels to take the offensive coordinator job at Kansas City so he could be reunited with Kansas City QB Matt Cassel.
