Deep Posts: Tom Brady's knee is clutch

Tom Brady's knee doctor is floored by the magical healing power of No. 12. Said the doc, "With regard to his recovery of strength, I've never seen anything quite like it. With an average person, it would have taken probably twice as long to get range of motion and strength back." There you have it; Tom Brady(notes) is superhuman.

• An early look at your fantasy football rookie rankings.

• Former Eagles stud lineman Jon Runyan is hoping to get his knee back to healthy and get a shot somewhere in the NFL. Also, his pig was treated with Benadryl and she's doing just fine. That's right, his pig.

• The Redskins have been the Offseason Champions for something like the last 19 straight years, but are the Bears making a run at that title in 2009?

• As planned, the Cowboys have officially released Greg Ellis. Prediction: Greg Ellis(notes) is unemployed for less than 48 hours.

Rodney Harrison's(notes) scheduled to participate in a conference call tomorrow, and speculation says that he'll be announcing his retirement. I'm sure I'll talk more about that when it happens.

• Former Bills quarterback Jim Kelly would like to speak with Barack Obama about mandatory testing of infants for rare genetic disorders. Sounds like a good idea to me.

• You know that dumb ABC show where people bounce off of giant balls and make idiots out of themselves for a few bucks? Ephraim Salaam and Chester Pitts were contestants.

• Freddie Mitchell would like to talk to you about selling some weird juice.

• Just a day after painting a bleak picture about the Rams staying in St. Louis, a potential buyer who would keep them in St. Louis has emerged. Excellent.

• NFL teams are ranked from one to 32 based on their running back depth charts. I'd say that's a pretty favorable ranking for the Dolphins at No. 8.
