Whispers from around the NFL

• Sources in Charlotte, N.C., tell us that there might already be tension between diva wide receivers Steve Smith and Keyshawn Johnson. We hear Smith said the two talented talkers are going to "agree to disagree." They are two larger-than-life personalities who can coexist on the field, but don't expect them to be good buddies off it.


• At press time, Chiefs running back Priest Holmes had yet to take the necessary steps to gain medical clearance to play following the head and neck trauma that cut short his 2005 season at the midway point. Holmes is said to be taking his time with the decision to address his situation and will not attend the team's mini-camp in mid-May.
