Two days ago, the biggest NFL news story was that Chris Henry's assault case was granted a mistrial. That was before Al Harris said the word "itch" on NFL Live. Now you can't go anywhere without hearing the words Brett Favre.
I fed the fire yesterday and made 29 percent of yesterdays Rundown about old No. 4. Sorry Smokey, shoot me.
Today, I'm going to attempt to bring you an update of the days' NFL news without any Brett Favre reports. Because I'm sure that Chris Mortensen and his ESPN crew have already invaded your house to let you know that Favre is possibly making a comeback because his mother's sister's aunt's cousin told some Milwaukee radio station that Favre is staying in playing shape.
That may leave me with approximately two news stories to discuss, but I'll persevere. I'm an ESPY nominee remember?
Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland doesn't anticipate any problems getting the team's remaining draft picks under contract.
In avoiding Brett Favre, I get a Bill Parcells report. Sweet mother of God, is there any newsworthy people in the sports world who haven't retired and unretired?
The San Francisco Chronicle believes that DeShaun Foster will struggle for playing time in 2008, barring injury.
So Foster is a poor man's Frank Gore, while Frank Gore is being used as Mike Martz's poor man's Marshall Faulk. In other words, DeShaun Foster is a homeless person's favorite player.
49ers second-year RB Thomas Clayton reportedly looked "dartingly quick" during organized team activities.
This slow, weak, 222-pound back that can't break tackles and hasn't even made it off a practice squad reportedly looks dartingly quick? Who reported that? His Mom?
Cardinals GM Rod Graves says the team has no interest in free agent Najeh Davenport.
The fact that the Steelers gave up on trading Davenport after just three hours should be a sign as to how successful he will be on the free-agent market. Every other Davenport in the world gets taken for free. It's looking like that's the only way Najeh would get snagged right now, too. (He's 247 pounds, so I wouldn't be surprised if he's full of Cheetos as well.)
Cowboys CB Adam Jones has decided to remain in Dallas for the three weeks of downtime between now and the starting of training camp.
Dallas must have better nightclubs than wherever the Cowboys' practice facility is located.
The NFL will not hold a supplemental draft in 2008, due to a lack of participants.
