Ogunleye talks have stalled
Palm Beach Post


The Post's Joe Schad reports that the Dolphins have not made any progress in their negotiations with free agent Adewale Ogunleye. Lets hope GM Rick Spielman has better luck when he talks with the agents for rookies Will Poole and Tony Bua next week.

Don't lay this one on the 49ers

Hines, 'Plex' have a lot in common
Pittsburgh Tribune Review


"Plaxico Burress' contractual dissatisfaction is well documented. His refusal to report for a mandatory minicamp and the voluntary coaching sessions that followed have drawn the wrath of the organization and Steelers fans everywhere, or so it seems. Now comes word that Hines Ward, who in the eyes of Steeler Nation plays the role of consummate pro and committed teammate to Burress' self-centered malcontent and underachiever, will also be an unhappy camper without a new deal."
