Vince Young

Michael Vick

  • Vick’s agent Joel Segal discusses the idea of a longterm contract agreement with the Philadelphia Eagles.

I think a long-term deal is something both sides would covet. I will talk to Joe Banner and explore that,” Segal said. “I think Mike is amenable to it. He’d look forward to it. (He) loves Philly, loves the fans. He’s a big Marty (Mornhinweg) fan, Andy Reid fan. If the Eagles are interested, we’re definitely interested.”

Seattle Seahawks

  • Eric D. Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune takes a look at some players that the Seahawks could be considering. The most notable players that Williams mentions are: Tyson Clabo, Barry Cofield, Aubrayo Franklin, Robert Gallery, Santonio Holmes, Kevin Kolb, Vonte Leach and Sidney Rice. 

Ricky Williams

Minnesota Vikings

  • Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune writes that Minnesota Vikings will have a hard time re-signing WR Sidney Rice considering that they are going to be over the salary cap by $5 million. Zulgad mentions that re-signing LB Chad Greenway to a more cap-friendly deal makes sense as well as cutting WR Bernard Berrian.

Takeo Spikes

  • Grant Cohn of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that LB Takeo Spikes will “almost certainly” return to the 49ers.
