Hot Routes 10.02.10: Gots to get paid

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

-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.

Report: Trevor Pryce signs with Jets

Posted by Will Brinson

The advent of "new media" means that occasionally, you get reports from odd places, like when we got the news that Trevor Pryce has signed with the Jets via Terrell Suggs on Twitter.

Aaron Wilson reports that Suggs, who protects his tweets, sent a message today indicating that Pryce, who everyone believed would simply re-join Baltimore in a few days, had signed with the Jets.

"kinda sad 2day. my boy trevor pryce signed wit the JETS!!!!!" Suggs tweeted. "happy for him but would rather he be on my team!!!!!"

Jamison Hensley of the Baltimore Sun also reports that a league source has confirmed Pryce's decision to join the Jets. Now neither of those is as concrete as say, an official Jets announcement, but it stands to reason that Suggs, who is friends with Pryce, would hear about it first.

It also stands to reason that Pryce -- who once said of Rex Ryan that "I'm going with him" -- would be interested in joining the Jets, even though Baltimore already had discussions with Pryce's camp about bringing him back as early as Tuesday.

Ravens release Trevor Pryce

Posted by Josh Katzowitz

In a somewhat surprising move, the Ravens announced this morning that they’ve cut DE Trevor Pryce, the team’s sack leader last year, and have re-signed S Ken Hamlin.

Perhaps Pryce should have known his roster spot was in trouble when he took a $2.5 million paycut before the season. He hadn’t played as much this year, and he only recorded a single assisted tackle in the team’s first three games.

Cory Redding had moved ahead of him on the depth chart, and DT Brandon McKinney has been playing well. Although Redding suffered a concussion last Sunday – another reason the release of Pryce is a surprise – expect rookie NT Terrence Cody to be active for the first time in his career when the team faces the Steelers on Sunday.

Considering the 35-year-old Pryce has slowed down considerably, today might have been Pryce’s last day in an NFL locker room.

For his career, Pryce totaled 90 sacks, the fourth-most among active players and the 34th-best number in NFL history.

UPDATE (10:22 a.m.):
According to a Pro Football Talk source, the Ravens could have dumped Pryce simply to make room for Hamlin. That means the team might re-sign Pryce next week.

UPDATE (11:35 a.m.): During his meeting with the media today, Harbaugh said it was a high possibility Pryce would be back with the team.
