NFL Jabber 3/16/07

In an unusual situation, the Bucs are going to meet today with Saints franchise player, DE Charles Grant.

Speaking of Saints, they are moving in on selling out 137 luxury boxes and 68,000 season tickets for the first time in team history.

“We are extremely appreciative of the support we received from fans and local businesses last season and are very encouraged with the response so far in 2007,” said Rita Benson LeBlanc, the Saints’ owner and executive vice president of administration. “We are hard at work to make sure the Saints are successful, both on and off the field, and look forward to announcing any team milestones when they are achieved.”

Georgia Tech WR Calvin Johnson put on a show at his “pro day” workout. 75 scouts showed up to take it in. “Whatever they wanted to see,” said Johnson, “I think I showed them.”


The Chargers put on a fashion show to display the new uni’s.

The Eagles landed WR Kevin Curtis.

Tank Johnson got 4 months for violating his probation.

Rumors fly about the Jets trading away Jonathan Vilma.

Chiefs gave a four-year deal to DT Ron Edwards.

Dolphins kicker, Olindo Mare doesn’t know that people don’t care about kickers feelings.

Marcus Pollard says he doesn’t “feel” 35. Maybe because he played flag football in college instead of getting hit?

“I played flag football at Bradley,” said Pollard, who had been a tight end and defensive end in high school. “I was the most famous flag football player in the world.”

Forget about the Rams losing Shaun McDonald and Kevin Curtis. The air show will be just fine with the addition of Drew Bennett and Randy McMichael.

Adam Schien at Foxsports.com feels that this season is a tryout for Mike Vick with the new staff in town.

The Browns keep on going by signing Robaire Smith to a four-year deal.

Jerry Jones doesn’t feel that the Cowboys have any needs going into the draft.

“I don’t think we’re locked in at any position to come out with,” Jones said. “I can see us going secondary, offensive line, whole gamut, and maybe even a young quarterback.”
