ESPN - John Clayton offers his list of the 10 teams with the best offseason moves. You'll be shocked; Denver is not on the list! Of course, Clayton does reserve a paragraph to take shots at the Broncos and McDaniels. I'm not sure when he became a Broncos-hater, but these last few weeks he's been rough on them. Maybe Shanny used to be more forthcoming with information than McD?

KCS - The worst-kept secret of the AFC West is out - the Chefs will run a 3-4 defensive front, at least some of the time. Stop the presses!!!!!

Y! - In a rare player-for-player deal, the Rams traded RB Brian Leonard to the Bungles for DT Orien Harris.

NFL - Cowboys PK Nick Folk had hip surgery and will miss 8-12 weeks.

Y! - The Dolphins are naming their new field Landshark Stadium, as part of a new partnership with singer Jimmy Buffett.
