Linky – June 29, 2011 – Potential Cowboys FA target Michael Huff makes Warren Sapp ‘nauseous’

Warren Sapp had a lot to say about Cowboys-related topics yesterday

Eagles win over Giants gets ESPY nomination – Daily News

It’s probably going to win, too.  The other nominees:

Auburn over Alabama in the Iron Bowl, Butler over top-seed Pittsburgh in the NCAA Tournament and Oklahoma City’s 3-overtime epic over Memphis in the NBA playoffs are the other nominees.

Would Cards trade corner to get Kolb? – Adam Caplan, FOX Sports

Caplna thinks that a draft pick and LB Daryl Washington could make sense.

Where does T.O. rank? Eagles (past and present) weigh in – Tim McManus, Philly Sports Daily

Quotes from Ike Reese, Keith Byars, Trent Cole, Freddie Mitchell, Brian Baldinger, and Quintin Mikell.  I know this is going to be shocking to Eagles fans, but Freddie used this as an opportunity to take a little jab at McNabb.

Eagles Kurt Coleman prepping for starting role – Tim McManus, Philly Sports Daily

While Coleman has a good chance to start in 2011, particularly early in the season, I think the Eagles would like to see rookie 2nd round pick earn the starting SS job alongside FS Nate Allen, with Coleman serving as the primary backup at both positions.

(Giants, Cowboys and Redskins news after the jump)…

Eli Manning goes to Duke – Ohm, ESPN

Kudos to Jerrel Jernigan to going to work out with Manning wherever he goes.  Kid seems like he cares.

Jets punter Steve Weatherford eyeing Giants as possible landing spot – Ed Valentine, SBN NY

Ed does a good job breaking down the numbers between Weatherford and current punter Matt Dodge.

Report: Plaxico to address league’s rookies – John Fennelly,

Agree with John that this can only help Plax’s stock.

MetLife said to be in talks to name Giants, Jets shared football stadium – Aaron Kuriloff, Bloomberg

I can’t take credit for this, but I read in a comment section somewhere that JetBlue needs to step up.

Free agent outlook: Nick Cole – Calvin Watkins, ESPN Dallas

Trust me, Cowboys fans… You don’t want Nick Cole.

Warren Sapp unimpressed with Huff’s preparation – Ryan Wilson, CBS

“I went so far with Michael Huff, and you can ask him this, that my last day in Oakland, I waited in the parking lot for Michael Huff,” said Sapp. “I waited in the parking lot because I wanted to talk to the young man because he made me want to throw up watching him practice. I mean, the scout team would complete ball, after ball, after ball. I’m like, ‘You’re not going to make one play? I mean, you’re not even going to put your hand on it and knock it down?’”

Obviously, I posted this here since Huff is widely rumored to be interested in playing for the Cowboys.  Unclear yet if that feeling is mutual.

Tomlinson expects to play in opener vs the Cowboys – Gerry Fraley, SportsDay DFW

Jets-Cowboys is going to be a great opener.

Warren Sapp: Rob Ryan’s defense will bite; Spencer must improve – Jon Machota, SportsDay DFW

“Spencer has to pick up his game, and I really think that he’s going to flourish in Rob’s system. Because there’s no way that somebody that big, that strong, that fast (should finish) with five sacks.”

Sapp with a lot to say yesterday, I guess.

Roy Helu: Fantasy football sleeper – Greg Brosh, Fantasy Knuckleheads

No way you draft him unless you’re in a league with like 16 teams, but I’d certainly keep an eye on him early in the season and have him earmarked as an in-season acquisition.

Washingtonian readers name Dan Snyder ‘local villain’ – Dan Steinberg, DC Sports Bog

Snyder is assembling hired goons to pay Steinberg a visit.  Love that Snyder finished ahead of Marion Barry.

Jarvis Jankins’ progress lands him with the Redskins – Mike Jones, WaPost

Nice piece on the Skins’ 2nd round pick.

Niles Paul’s planking attempt – Sarah Schorno Kogod, NBC Washington

Uhhhh… I don’t get it.


  1. Gary says:

    “Trust me, Cowboys fans… You don’t want Nick Cole.”

    Shhhh, don’t tell them.

  2. The Legend says:

    Freddie Mitchell is a bum that needs to go away, why do reporters still ask for his opinion?

    Also I’m surprised a Jets player doesn’t have his head up Rex’s ass
