-- Check out this video of a post-ACL surgery Terrell Owens, looking very quick and quite recovered:
Does this mean that he's ready for the NFL again? Matt Bowen of the National Football Post isn't 100 percent convinced, especially for a player whose 2011 contract would be fully guaranteed were he to be signed before the start of the 2011 regular season.
-- And why would a guaranteed contract for a receiver on the wrong side of 30 be a bad idea? Ask Plaxico Burress of the New York Jets — he's getting an MRI to determine the severity of a recent ankle injury. He will miss his new team's Monday night opener against the Houston Texans and will be shut down until next Wednesday.
-- More receiver news: The Baltimore Ravens have been looking for a speed guy, and they finally got a player who can stretch the field in Lee Evans, who was traded to Baltimore on Friday from the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo gets just a fourth-round pick in return despite the fact that they've already paid Evans' $1 million roster bonus. Evans is a dynamic downfield threat who's been hamstring by a series of noodle-armed and inaccurate quarterbacks in Buffalo -- when he gets a load of the lasers thrown by Joe Flacco in comparison, he should be very pleased.
-- And in the "It's about time!" department: Ray Rice will be the Ravens' goal-line back this season. There are some great backs in the NFL, but if you ask me, Rice could be the best overall when it comes to total skill set.
-- The Tennessee Titans are now saying that they are willing to make Chris Johnson the highest-paid running back in the NFL, but he has to quit his holdout and report to camp before that can happen. Johnson responds by saying that he's not received any offers. ("What we've got here is … a failure to communicate…")
-- Bad news for a Carolina Panthers offense that's trying to recover from a historically bad 2010: Receiver David Gettis, who flashed some real ability in 2010, is likely out for the season with a torn MCL.
