Going to follow up on a lot of what we touched on this morning — the latest with Michael Vick, Josh Cribbs, draft pick signings (some deals that are close to being done), the Baltimore Ravens’ receiving position (and Derrick Mason) and also an up-and-coming tight end.
Other stuff: Drew Rosenhaus continues to add to his stable of players. He just tweeted that he has now added Titans TE Bo Scaife as a client. Scaife is on the franchise tag this year, but as Rosennaus tweeted: “We hope to sign him to a long term deal in 2010.” No agent seems to add established players to the degree that Rosenhaus does, in my non-scientific, just-going-from-memory, two-second study of that phenomenon. … Had a double whammy at the end of our vacation. First, on Friday, I realized that I fried my iPod by leaving it in my car parked by the beach. Yeah, that was smart. As I noted at the onset of this blog, the trend of Jason’s ongoing struggles verses modern technology will be a constant subplot here. Then, I got a speeding ticket while driving back, just over the Maryland border (had it been in Delaware, no threat of points). Such is life. … Hoping to make it to the Chelsea-AC Milan match in my backyard here in Baltimore on Friday night, but I just have this feeling in the pit of my stomach that Brett Favre will make his decision as I am about to begin tailgating with friends, and my life will be turned upside down as I scramble for a suit coat and tie and the nearest TV studio. I might have to keep a suit in the trunk and that Blackberry in my hands at all times. The Ravens are helping to put the game on, and it should be a great time. Over 70,000 people will be there — a lot of fans of American football included.
