  • Texans quarterback David Carr has put on about 10 pounds of muscle in the offseason and is beginning to resemble a linebacker, which if he gets hit as often as he did a year ago, should help keep him healthy.

  • The Broncos attempted to trade up to Minnesota's No. 9 spot to draft defensive end Terrell Suggs.

  • Several Eagles veterans, most recently quarterback Donovan McNabb, expressed their displeasure with the way the team handled the Hugh Douglas situation. There is speculation that head coach Andy Reid was never a big fan of Douglas.
