Tampa Bay Buccaneers: WR Joey Galloway will visit the club today in an effort to renew talks regarding a proposed trade that would send WR Keyshawn Johnson to the Dallas Cowboys. Negotiation that were once thought to be dead are now on life support. "(Negotiations) were never really dead," agent Leigh Steinberg told the St. Petersburg Times. "The figures haven't changed much, just the form has changed a bit. But Joey is going to visit and that's a positive thing." The long-discussed trade for Galloway has been stalled by an apparent inadequate offer from the Bucs, a reported one-year, $1.25-million deal. General manager Bruce Allen, who said the team has "about $1-million" of cap money to spend, said there could be a resolution by the end of the week.
New York Giants: The club is close to terms with Washington DT Martin Chase. "We're getting real close," Neil Schwartz, Chase's agent, told the New York Post. "There's been serious interest." Chase, 29, started two games in the nation's capitol before playing sparingly because of a calf injury. The 6-2, 310-pound Chase has seven starts in 54 career games and just one sack. With Cornelius Griffin lost to the Redskins and Keith Hamilton retired, the Giants need bodies at defensive tackle. They've already signed DT Fred Robbins.
