- Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis denied an ESPN report by Chris Mortensen that the team is shopping tailback Rudi Johnson in search of a receiver.
Morning take: Lewis also denied interest in Chris Henry and that the team was offered two first-round picks for Chad Johnson. So we know the drill.
- After fumbling twice in last week's preseason game, the Pittsburgh Steelers have rookie tailback Rashard Mendenhall carry a football around the facility and offers $100 to anyone who can knock it out.
Morning take: That's a pretty good bounty. Next time I see Mendenhall in the locker room, can I take a few swipes, Mike Tomlin?
- The Cleveland Browns placed receiver Joe Jurevicius (knee) on the physically unable to perform list, making him unavailable until at least week seven.
Morning take: The Browns are lacking a true third receiver without Jurevicius. But there is an available player who WANTS to fill that role in 2008 (hint, hint, wink, wink). Check out the AFC North blog later this afternoon to find out who.
