... Which means that the Sunday before the regular season begins should give us a nice respite before the craziness truly begins.
- Cleveland delivered some good news by activating DL Shaun Rogers off the Physically Unable to Play list. Rogers missed the final five games of last season with a leg injury, and he missed the entire Cleveland preseason.
- I feel compelled to bring you this news story, though, in reality, there’s isn’t too much news contained inside. Jets GM Mark Tannenbaum says the team is ready to play without CB Darrelle Revis. Of course, he’d feel a lot better if Revis was actually with his teammates.
- Giants rookie WR Victor Cruz, to whom you were introduced when he caught three TD passes against the Jets in the preseason, said he would cry if he made the team. He did, and he did.
- Wes Welker can play, but he knows he’s not going to be 100 percent when the Patriots open their season. He admits he doesn’t feel the same as last year.
- Jonathan Casillas was placed on the IR list for the Saints with a foot injury, meaning he’ll miss the entire season. You might remember him for recovering the onside kick to open the second half of last season’s Super Bowl.
- In a non-surprising move, the Chiefs shipped S Jarrad Page away from Kansas City in a trade with New England for a draft pick. Page and coach Todd Haley didn’t get along, and ultimately, Page got what he wanted – a ticket out of Missouri. The Kansas City Star’s Kent Babb has some thoughts on his Twitter page.
- Just for the record, Jarrad Page has no hard feelings for Kansas City, writing on his Twitter page, “Jus (sic) wanted to say to the kc fans that stood by me, this was never personal I love kc for giving me a great first 4yrs of my NFL career”
- An interesting story here about the Oakland Raiders Saturday saga with safeties Stevie Brown and Mike Mitchell. Sounds like somebody frigged something up.
- One more Raiders note. Rookie C Jared Veldheer, a 6-foot-8 behemoth, beat out returner starter Samson Satele for the right to snap the football to Jason Campbell.
