- Bills rookie cornerback Ellis Lankster's impressive practice sessions led the team to sign the seventh-round pick to a non-guaranteed contract on Monday, reports the Charleston Daily Mail's Mike Casazza.
- Former Bills star Bruce Smith is scheduled to appear in court this morning over a drunken driving charge.
- The Sun-Sentinel's Mike Berardino asks Fins' fans not to forget about tight end Anthony Fasano. "Anthony Fasano isn't Mark Bavaro. Not yet anyway. But of all the talented tight ends under contract to the Miami Dolphins, Fasano is the one who seems best-positioned to make the leap to the upper echelon at his position."
- Also from Berardino: What should athletes, such as Davone Bess, do about their Twitter imitators?
New England Patriots
- Retired safety Rodney Harrison doesn't think he'll get a fair shake from Hall of Fame voters, writes NFL FanHouse's Nancy Gay. Says Harrison: "... because just look how the NFL has looked at me all these years. Ignoring my stats and my impact as a player and a teammate. Focusing on the negative. Do I believe I'm a Hall of Fame player? Absolutely. Will I make it in there? That's up to you guys. But I know that I did all I could do."
- NESN.com's Jeff Howe writes that this is Tom Brady's first "McDaniels-less" season as a starter.
New York Jets
- The grounds staff at SUNY Cortland, where the Jets will hold minicamp this summer, says the work is similar to "planning a wedding."
