Collins, Raiders may be good fit

Contra Costa Times columnist Eric Gilmore writes "Turner has said he's interested in (Kerry) Collins as a backup. You can imagine how Gannon, not exactly Mr. Happy, would react to having Collins lurking over his shoulder. More likely, the Raiders are considering whether to dump Gannon after June 1, freeing $7 million in salary cap room, and sign Collins."

Warner visit went well

St. Louis Post-Dispatch columnist Bernie Miklasz writes "Rams quarterback Kurt Warner had a good visit with the New York Giants. The Giants examined Warner's right hand and gave him a clean bill of health."


Sharpe mulls move to CBS

Eagles flying from plan for Reid?

A new chapter for Warner?
Jacksonville Times-Union

Boys still want Vinny
New York Daily News


"Bill Parcells needs a veteran QB to challenge Quincy Carter and to mentor Drew Henson. Dallas never pursued Kerry Collins, despite his relationship with Sean Payton. That re-emphasizes what the Daily News reported in March: Vinny Testaverde is headed for a post-June 1 reunion with Parcells and Keyshawn Johnson."


Smith could sign on with Giants, Broncos, or Ravens
Boston Globe


"Another former Patriots running back, Antowain Smith, is expected to start making the rounds and visiting teams.

Don't fret, Collins and Warner will get themselves jobs this year, even if it is in a back-up role. QB's get hurt too often, every team needs 2 good QB's to be legitimate.

As for Sharpe, can anyone name one TE who was unquestionably better than him?
