Beastlines: Eagles to hold on to Vick
By ESPN.com staff
Receiver Miles Austin took part in the ESPY Celebrity Golf Classic, which helps raise money for the V Foundation for Cancer Research.
The Dallas Morning News' Jean-Jacques Taylor thinks the Cowboys will sign Austin to a long-term deal by mid-season.
Are the Cowboys concerned they haven't signed any of their 2010 draft picks? Taylor says not at all -- the club typically doesn't start negotiating contracts with agents until a week or so before training camp begins. ESPNDallas.com's Tim MacMahon says negotiations with draftees' agents have begun.
In the eighth installment of his 10-part series on Cowboys "who have a lot to prove in training camp," MacMahon looks at quarterback Stephen McGee.
New York Giants
Giants president and CEO John Mara remembers George Steinbrenner.
Former Giants running back Tiki Barber was sued by an indoor cycling company for which he was a spokesman. The suit claims his marketability has been "rendered worthless" by allegations that he engaged in an affair and by the breakup of his marriage.
Dave Goldberg expects the Giants to be playoff contenders this season thanks to the addition of defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and the return of key players from injury on defense.
The Philadelphia Inquirer's Birds' Eye View blog takes a look at the quarterback and defensive line positions in advance of training camp.
The team signed fifth-round pick Riley Cooper, a 6-foot-3 wide receiver out of Florida.
The Eagles plan to hold on to quarterback Michael Vick, sources say -- unless it turns out he was lying about what happened the night of his 30th birthday party.
Dan Steinberg looks at the frequent comparisons made in the media between Redskins owner Dan Snyder and late Yankees owner George Steinbrenner.
Albert Haynesworth's personal trainer, Tripp Smith, said the defensive tackle is "going to open some eyes when he gets to camp." Haynesworth has lost 32 pounds according to Smith.
