But I think there is that pressure when you take a guy in the high first round for him to play as quickly as possible and validate that pick."

    Ravens | Boller believes the starting job is his
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 15:17:09 -0700

    Jamison Hensley, of the Baltimore Sun, reports Baltimore Ravens QB Kyle Boller believes the team's starting quarterback job is still his. The Ravens might have a chance at signing QB Steve McNair or another free agent to compete with Boller. They could also select a quarterback in the NFL Draft to compete with Boller. He has put on 20 pounds as a result of work in the weight room. When asked if there is any chance that he wouldn't be the Ravens' starter this season, Boller replied, "I don't ever doubt that." Boller said he would welcome the signing of McNair as long as the Ravens wouldn't name him the starter immediately. Boller said it would "surprise" him if the Ravens took a quarterback that early in the draft. Boller also said he has no problems with the foot and ankle injuries that sidelined him for seven starts last season.

And on draft day, my agent tells me I'll be going to the city where I'm drafted that night. It's a huge honor, but I have a big extended family, and I knew I couldn't take all of them with me. I'd rather stay at home (Centerville, Ohio) with them where I'm comfortable."

    NFL | R. Bush's family being investigated by PAC-10
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 12:21:28 -0700

    Charles Robinson, of Yahoo Sports, reports USC RB Reggie Bush's family is being investigated after they were found living in a 3,000-square-foot house linked to Michael Michaels, a man alleged to have tried steering Bush towards an agent and who has ties of his own to a sports marketing company. NCAA statues prohibit student-athletes or their families from receiving extra benefits from professional sports agents, marketing companies or their representatives. A breach in statutes could result in the athlete being ruled ineligible and all games in which they played could be forfeited. USC athletic department officials looked into it following reporters' questions about the matter. USC athletic director Mike Garrett said, "Rather than jumping to conclusions, we need to determine the facts before commenting on this report. We have asked the Pac-10 to look into this."


    Bears | Team receiving offers for No. 26 pick
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 11:54:57 -0700

    Larry Mayer, of ChicagoBears.com, reports Chicago Bears general manager Jerry Angelo said several teams have called to inquire about trading up or trading down for the team's No. 26 overall draft choice. Angelo added, "I'm surprised that we're getting calls. We're getting a lot of calls, more calls than normal this time of year. They could all go away, but I think you're going to see a lot of (trade) activity, and you already have. Two teams already made trades and I think that's pretty telling."

    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 10:08:50 -0700

    Tony Grossi, of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, reports Ohio State LB A.J. Hawk would have to drop to at least No. 8 before Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage thinks about trading up to select him, according to one NFL team executive. The executive said, "Phil doesn't give up picks. [Hawk] would have to drop to at least No. 8 to give them any shot. And that is not going to happen."

    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 09:03:02 -0700

    Patrick McManamon, of the Akron Beacon Journal, reports Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage said he expects to receive a phone call or two if one of the top three quarterbacks falls to the No. 12 spot in the draft. While not fully endorsing QB Charlie Frye, Savage did say, "We have started going down the path with Charlie. At this junction, to put on the brakes, back out of that road and try to head down another one may not make as much sense as it should, especially at that position."

Teams want the Seahawks' first- and second-round choices in return, a price that might be too steep. "We would be there six hours without a pick," Ruskell said.


    Cardinals | Team not likely to trade up in the NFL Draft
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 07:30:43 -0700

    Kent Somers, of the Arizona Republic, reports the Arizona Cardinals are not likely to trade up in next weekend's NFL Draft. "The 10th spot is a very good spot for us to be in," said Rod Graves, the team's vice president for football operations. "I think that if we stay there we're assured we'll get an excellent football player." Staying put requires no imagination, but it does take discipline. "That's why it is important to like a lot of players," head coach Dennis Green said. "You really can't fall in love with a player. You can do it in free agency and pay more money to get that player. But in the draft, you can't do that." The Cardinals like a lot of players in this draft; they just won't say which ones. They have seven picks in the draft, one in each round, and need every one of them.

    NFL | R. Bush's family being investigated by PAC-10
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 12:21:28 -0700

    Charles Robinson, of Yahoo Sports, reports USC RB Reggie Bush's family is being investigated after they were found living in a 3,000-square-foot house linked to Michael Michaels, a man alleged to have tried steering Bush towards an agent and who has ties of his own to a sports marketing company. NCAA statues prohibit student-athletes or their families from receiving extra benefits from professional sports agents, marketing companies or their representatives. A breach in statutes could result in the athlete being ruled ineligible and all games in which they played could be forfeited. USC athletic department officials looked into it following reporters' questions about the matter.

    POSTED 5:04 p.m. EDT, April 23, 2006

    BUSH FAMILY WAS THE BENEFICIARY OF INDIAN GIVER
    Mike Florio

    Kudos to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports for being the first to report that USC tailback Reggie Bush is the previously unnamed first-round prospect whose family had been living (free of charge, apparently) in a house paid for by a budding agent from an Indian tribe.

    Robinson reports that Bush's family abruptly packed up and moved out of the San Diego home within 24 hours after Yahoo! Sports started asking Bush's mother, Denise Griffin, questions about information linking the house to Michael Michaels, who allegedly has a role in steering Bush toward an agent.

    Per Robinson, Michaels is a member of the Sycuan Indian Tribe and a business development officer for the tribe's development corporation. He failed to return multiple calls from Robinson, and claimed to be unavailable when Robinson dropped by his home on three occasions this weekend.

    The Sycuan tribe denied any knowledge of Michaels' relationship with the Bush family. The tribe owns a casino and a resort.

    Robinson reports that Michaels bought the house in which Bush's family had been living for $757,000 in March 2005. Neighbors told Yahoo! Sports that the Griffins (Bush's stepfather, mother, and brother -- not Peter, Meg, Stewie, etc.) moved in at about that same time. Michaels is the only person listed on the deed, even though an inscription on one of the cement slabs reads "The Griffins '05."

    Michaels and an associate named Lloyd Lake reportedly contacted San Diego-based agent David Caravantes regarding the possibility of recruiting Bush. Michaels was looking for an NFLPA-certified agent to handle the football contracts of players that Michaels intended to sign to his marketing firm, which Michaels reportedly planned to launch under the name of "New Era Sports and Entertainment."

    Robinson found a potential web site for New Era Sports. Our tech guy Sean has determined via his own Internet sleuthing techniques that the domain was created on November 2, 2005, and that the administrative contact is James Choe of New Era Sports & Entertainment, located at 550 Park Blvd, #27, San Diego, (619) 708-8399. Sean also found a myspace.com profile of a kid from Nebraska who claims that he'll be working for "New Era Sports & Entertainment" in La Jolla, California in May 2006, another myspace profile of a guy who claims to be the "Director of Recruitment" for "New Era Sports Marketing & Entertainment" in San Diego, and the cache for a third myspace profile of a guy known as "Haterproof Homey," who lists "New Era Sports & Entertainment" as one of his "companies."

    Finally, Sean found reference to "New Era Sports & Entertainment" as the agency for South Carolina offensive lineman Jabari Levey.

    The contact agent? David Caravantes.

    Bottom line -- Robinson's report seems to be right on the money.

    So what does all of this mean? Not much for Bush. He'll still be drafted where he otherwise would have been drafted. And he'll still likely earn as much money via endorsements as he otherwise would have earned -- unless, of course, the free lodging for his family is merely the tip of a bigger iceberg that expands into a major national story.

    Regardless of how it might affect Bush, this whole thing could get very interesting for the folks at Southern Cal. Since the Griffins apparently were living in the house during the 2005 season, the NCAA could eventually rule that Bush was ineligible -- and likewise could require the Trojans to forfeit all of their 2005 victories. Though we doubt for now that such an extreme outcome will result, Robinson reports that USC has referred the matter to the Pac-10 for an investigation.

    Our own take on the whole thing is that it was stupid and/or arrogant for the Griffins to think that they could squat in the house bought by Michaels without giving anything to Michaels in return, and without the matter ever coming to light. We've heard that, for the past two months or so, Michaels had been trying to get his money back for the house and/or threatening to take the whole thing public. So why didn't the Griffins get the hell out of the house long before someone showed up and started asking questions?

    More importantly, why did they accept free lodging from Michaels in the first place? Did they have no appreciation of the problems it could cause for Bush and the Trojans?

    And why wouldn't USC be keeping closer watch on the activities of the family members of the players most likely to be targets for benefits from agents and marketing companies?

    Stay tuned for more on this one.

    Rams | Team reps having dinner with Young
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 21:22:47 -0700

    Updating previous reports, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch's Bill Coats reports St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Greg Olson and quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier headed for Houston after Sunday's final minicamp practice, April 23, where they were to have dinner with Texas QB Vince Young. He is expected to be one of the top picks in next weekend's NFL Draft. "We're just covering every base," Rams head coach Scott Linehan said. "I don't know when guys are going to get drafted."


    Panthers | Hurney says team will be counting on Shelton
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 21:00:38 -0700

    Joe Menzer, of the Winston-Salem Journal, reports Carolina Panthers general manager Marty Hurney said the team will be counting on RB Eric Shelton in 2006. "I think his rehab has gone great. And I think just like with any young player, any time a young player gets a change to have a year to kind of see how things are done, be around the facility and in team meetings, learn the system obviously with that one year behind him, he's going to have much more comfort when he gets into games, knowing what we do," Hurney said. "He's a big back who can move. We saw that when we drafted him, we still see that, and we just believe he's only going to get better. Hopefully just being around for a year, he will have matured as a player, just knowing what we do." Given RB DeShaun Foster's medical history, it will be important for Shelton or someone the Panthers pick up in the NFL

    49ers | Team could trade with the Raiders – if Young is available
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 18:40:50 -0700

    Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers' vice president of player personnel Scot McCloughan is not ruling out the possibility that the 49ers and Oakland Raiders could end up speaking during the NFL Draft Saturday, April 29, especially if Texas QB Vince Young is still available when the 49ers pick at No. 6. "If he does fall to six, we're going to field some calls, and they (the Raiders) are going to know that," McCloughan said. "If that's the guy they've pinpointed, they're not going to want to miss out on him." The Raiders would likely have to part with their first- and fourth-round picks (No. 101 overall) to get the No. 6.


    Packers | Team could look to acquire more draft picks
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 18:02:37 -0700

    Bob McGinn, of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, reports the Green Bay Packers may look to acquire more picks in next week's NFL Draft. In five drafts for the Seattle Seahawks and one for the Packers, general manager Ted Thompson has traded down eight times and never traded up. He entered the 2005 draft with seven picks and finished with 11. Given the laundry list of voids on the roster, look for the Packers to turn their seven picks into a double-digit total once again. "They need a corner, they need a safety, they need two linebackers, they need a defensive end, they need two inside offensive linemen, they need a running back, a No.1 wide receiver and, really, the jury's out at quarterback," a personnel director said Friday. "They don't have a kicker and they don't have a punter. Good luck. How many picks do they have?" The scout said the Packers' depth chart had the makings of a 3-13 team.

    Because, as an article awhile back stated, the TOA does not believe a punter can fully recover from the injury that Kluwe has. I bet, much to all of our dismay, we will be getting someone new because of it.

    NFL | No teams invite M. Vick for a personal workout or interview
    Sun, 23 Apr 2006 12:50:31 -0700

    Paul Newberry, of the Associated Press, reports Virginia Tech QB Marcus Vick has not received any invites for a personal workout or an interview since the NFL Combine. The only teams that called up were looking for a number where he could be reached during the NFL Draft.

    I would love it if he doesn't get drafted!

    What phone number did he give them? The number to the local jail.

    He is a thug and I think the only team that will draft him is Atlanta because of Michael. If he would switch to running back or wide receiver he could be an NFL player but not at QB. He needs to get his life together and stop being the spoiled athlete that he is, or was. No team is going to want his baggage and headaches for somebody that is small 6' 0" at QB, and is not as good of an athlete as his brother.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
