- Brett Favre's brother says there's a "less than one percent" chance that Brett un-retires. That sounds high to us.
- DeSean Jackson might happily welcome Plaxico Burress to Philly, but Pro Football Weekly expects the Raiders to also be in the Plaxico sweepstakes.
- The Packers' Ryan Grant says the team told him that he will be the starting running back this season after missing almost the entire 2010 campaign with an ankle injury.
- We now have two players in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft. Former University of Georgia running back Caleb King joins Terrelle Pryor in a draft that usually takes place in mid-July but because of the lockout could happen sometime in the coming weeks. According to PFT, King received a grade of 4.9 from National Scouting, the same organization that gave Pryor a 5.1 (which translates into a sixth- or seventh-round pick).
- Former Cards QB Kurt Warner took to Twitter to dispute the claim by former Cards scout Dave Razzano that Warner retired after being "lowballed" by the organization. The takeaway: Even after Warner hung it up, Matt Leinart still wasn't able to win the job.
- Continuing the retirement theme: Ravens wideout Derrick Mason says he'll call it quits if Baltimore wins the Super Bowl. We eagerly await LaMarr Woodley's thoughts on the matter.
- It's easy to just assume that if Pacman Jones got arrested, he probably did something wrong. Maybe this time is different.
- Eagles assistant coach Jim Washburn might really want Albert Haynesworth, but it sounds like the only way that will happen is if the Redskins release him.
- Deion Sanders, like everybody else on the planet, is tired of talking about the lockout. So instead, he talks about himself. (To be fair, he was asked, and it's regarding his Hall of Fame enshrinement next month.)
- Kerry Collins' retirement may have come out of nowhere, but it doesn't mean the Titans would reconsider keeping Vince Young.
