The NFL is planning to implement an additional aptitude test for players at the league's annual scouting combine, according to National Football Scouting president Jeff Foster.
The new test will complement the long-time used Wonderlic as another way of testing players.
The NFL Scouting Combine is Feb. 20-26 in Indianapolis.
A league source told NFL.com that the test will be part of this year's combine.
Foster said the new test will not replace the Wonderlic, which has faced much criticism over the years as its usefulness has been debated. Designed as an intelligence test, the Wonderlic was first used by Dallas Cowboys legendary coach Tom Landry in the 1970s.
Foster said the new test was developed with the help of a university professor and hopes that "it's something that's a little more evolved than the Wonderlic."
--Jersey City, N.J., police say that Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kenny Britt is not cooperating in their investigation of a shooting and stabbing that occurred last month.
Britt was interviewed by police in January about the incident that involved a close friend of the wide receiver, but he has not come in for further questioning, according to the Tennessean. Britt's attorney, Robert Lane, said that he was told by police that Britt is not a suspect and will not be arrested.
---The Pittsburgh Steelers coaches still want linebacker James Harrison back for another season even though his contract situation could make that a challenge, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
Harrison, who had six sacks last season despite missing three games with a knee injury, will turn 35 in May, and he may have to take a pay cut to stay with the team. The Steelers are about $14 million over the salary cap, and they could get $5.1 million in cap relief by releasing Harrison.
