Horse Tracks 5/27/09


DB - Josh Barrett and Matt Prater spoke after the first day of passing camp; here is a partial transcript. Barrett talks about learning from BDawk and working on forcing more turnovers (Where have I heard that before?), while Prater's main goal is to keep his leg fresh throughout the year. See videos of their pressers here.

DP - D.J. Williams is hoping to finally be cleared for team activities today, after a long offseason of rehab. Plus, Brandon Marshall has finally started running again.

DP - Lonie Paxton apparently knew as far back as high school that he wanted to be a long snapper. He says his baseball pitching skills helped him in his craft.

CBS4 - Marshall spoke with Reggie Rivers this weekend; he's hopeful that no suspension will be coming his way.

BM15 - BMarsh updated his blog the other day; seems he feels his hip injury wasn't quite handled that well last year by the team. Interesting...

SI - Although I'm proud that a fellow New Yorker has been nominated to the Supreme Court, I'm disappointed to learn Sonia Sotomayor helped put Maurice Clarett in our collective laps (and that she's a Yanks fan). Peter King has details in his Tuesday column, plus some emails.

NYT - Speaking of Clarett, here's an interesting entry on him from the Times.

TR - Titans WR Kenny Britt is still working with Rod Smith.

KCS - The Chefs have announced their training camp schedule.

SFG - Raiders DE Trevor Scott answers five questions from David White.

NFL - The Cowboys will trade or release DE Greg Ellis, according to owner Jerry Jones. Well, there's another 3-4 end on the market (20.5 sacks over the past two years). Remember folks, the offseason is far from over...

NFL - Cards WR Anquan Boldin is apparently dumping Drew Rosenhaus.

NFL - According to Rosenhaus, his client, Dolphins CB Will Allen received $10 million in guarantees as part of a two-year extension.

NFL - The Browns signed former Cards CB Rod Hood yesterday to a reported one-year deal.

NFL - Tom Brady practiced yesterday for the first time since his knee injury.

NFL - Peyton Manning isn't so happy about all the coaching turnover in Indy.

Y! - No surprise here; Mike Silver received plenty of emails in response to his story about changing the Redskins' team name.

NFL - Steve Wyche examines the impact of potential suspensions for Vikings D-Linemen Kevin and Pat Williams.

NFP - Mike Lombardi thinks a potential tampering penalty levied against Washington for the Al Haynesworth signing wouldn't do much to prevent more foul play.

CBS - Clark Judge lists ten players he expects will have a huge impact in 2009.

NFL - Pat Kirwan looks at ten WRs he expects to make a jump in production.

NFP - Andrew Brandt shares his thoughts on Josh Cribbs, StarCaps and Dre' Bly.

NFL - Bucky Brooks says the NFC West is changing from an aerial-attack division to one of smashmouth running.

NFP - Matt Bowen looks at the players he expects to most impact the AFC East teams. He agrees with Randy Moss, who thinks the Pats offense will be explosive.

SI - John Mullin ranks the NFL's QB/RB pairings; Orton and Moreno come in at #24. For those who think I'm drinking the Kool Aid, I think 24 is about right; however, I expect our pair will prove better as the season goes on.

ESPN - The Broncos rank #25 in ESPN's power rankings. Again; sounds right to me.

FOX - John Czarnecki spoke with Bill Polian about new Colts HC Jim Caldwell.

CBS - Pete Prisco thinks Rex Grossman should have a job.

NFP - Robert Boland profiles a few football players who served our country with pride.

Y! - FSU safety Myron Rolle thinks he can become both an NFL player and a neurosurgeon. Interesting and an impressive goal, but a neurosurgeon can't have his own head, hand or arm injuries...

NFP - Wes Bunting looks at outside 'backers for the 2010 Draft.
