McCardell is not likely to give in
St. Petersburg Times
" Who will give ground in the standoff between the Bucs and receiver Keenan McCardell, holding out for a new contract, is anyone's guess. But
considering that both parties appear firmly dug in, a happy ending seems a long shot."
Pats may tag Light
"Light and Woody have the same agents but, fortunately for the Patriots, different values. If the sides don't come to an agreement soon, that doesn't
mean Light is going anywhere; New England simply will use the 'franchise' tag, which this year costs a reasonable $7.021 million for offensive linemen
. . ."
George may feel cap crunch
"With 13 rookies to sign, Tennessee was $523,000 under the cap as of June 15. Only the Raiders, with $313,628 to spare, were in a tighter cap
situation. Pretty soon, it's going to be crunch time for the Titans and running back Eddie George."
McCombs could try end run to L.A.
St. Paul Pioneer Press
"Some people close to the Vikings' unsuccessful attempt to get a new stadium are becoming convinced Vikings owner Red McCombs will try to pay off the
team's Metrodome lease and move the franchise to Los Angeles rather than sell it locally."
Davis would land on feet if he's fired
Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Even if Browns head coach Butch Davis doesn't lead the team to success this season and loses his job, his future likely will be much brighter than
that of the club. Football insiders say a 'Perfect Storm' of sorts could occur in college football this fall, one that could leave coaching vacancies
at these highly attractive schools after the season: Texas, Notre Dame, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Colorado, South Carolina, North Carolina, Illinois,
Arizona State and UCLA."
