Braylon Edwards missed the first minicamp.

Braylon was not here today,” said coach Romeo Crennel. “He contacted us early this morning and said he wasn’t going to be here. He should be here (Wednesday). This is a voluntary camp. They don’t have to be here.

“I would like them to be here and I told all of them today I would like them to be here, but it’s voluntary and he doesn’t have to be here.”

Yep, Trent green is still a Chief. He isn’t liking it much either.

“I’m still holding out hope that the deal gets done,” Green said. “I’m still banking on what they said back in March, that they’d get the trade done.”

Green was with the Chiefs for the start of organized team activities (OTAs) on Tuesday, splitting reps with Damon Huard, Brodie Croyle and Casey Printers. But he reiterated that he has no plans to be with the team this fall.

“I don’t anticipate (being a Chief),” Green said. “But I still have a responsibility to get ready to play, wherever that is. It’s my job as a professional football player. It doesn’t do me any good to go to Arizona or Florida or California, wherever all those workout facilities are, and spend time doing what you can do right here.

“I have guys that I’ve had a relationship with for six years. Guys I’m used to throwing with and an offense that’s somewhat similar to what we’ve done the last six years and is similar to what they do in Miami. There are a lot of reasons to be here.”

Drew Brees continues with his good deeds in New Orleans. Brees and some teammates took 31 New Orleans area kids on a fishing trip that began with a limo ride.

“Most kids have not really been able to have that experience,” said Brees, who came up with the idea for “Brees on the Seas” back when he was with the San Diego Chargers. “Especially when you’re talking about Children’s Hospital. Some of them might be terminally ill with cancer, and it might be their only opportunity to do this.

“Sometimes the best treatment is just to get them out here and put a smile on their face. Sometimes that’s the best therapy, to get them away from the treatments and the medicine and the doctors. Give them a place where they can just relax and forget about that for a while and just catch fish.”

The Titans are expecting Ben Troupe to step it up this year.

Ron Jaworski can be moving up from the Arena League to NFL this year after Joe Theisman gets the boot from MFL.

Dexter Reid hits the trifecta. (1)Pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving with (2)pot and a (3)gun in the car.

Bengals President Mike Brown shoots down trade rumors for Takeo Spikes.

“We have a high regard for Takeo. But our (salary) cap room does not allow for a deal of the magnitude necessary to trade for him,” Bengals president Mike Brown said.

The Lions have a dilemma with the #2 pick. Keep it, trade it? You can be sure they will be working it at the NFL’s annual meetings. Meanwhile the Lions signed former Raven guard, Edwin Mulitalo (fun to say, isn’t it?).

Word is the Chiefs are asking for a 2nd round pick and an undetermined pick for Trent Green. The Dolphins are not moving. Risky move considering they will likely cut Green if they can’t trade him and David Carr is also being sniffed around by the Fins.

Mike Tomlin is putting the smackdown on distractions in steeltown.

“I want to eliminate the variables that don’t matter,” said Tomlin, attending his first league-wide meeting. “That’s what the great teams do more than anything else — they show up, and they play the game. That’s a culture. It’s not something that happens week in and week out. It’s a culture that defines that kind of atmosphere.”

The Falcons have contacted Tim Rattay about the backing up Mike Vick.

New Orleans is out of the race to host the 2011 Super Bowl. On a brighter note, state officials reached an agreement with the Saints to keep them in town at least that long.
