Some news and links from around the league that might be of interest:
Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman is expected to miss at least three weeks of action due to a groin tear (it hurts just to type that). According to the Dallas Morning-News, he could miss Dallas' first two preseason games. The Cowboys do have some depth at CB after drafting Mike Jenkins in the first round, and you might have heard something about them adding Adam Jones in the offseason.
As I was looking for a link to the Newman story, I stumbled upon another article titled Love connection: Dallas Cowboys' Romo, T.O. share special bond. It includes Romo saying he made Owens a birthday cake.
Speaking of love connections, did you see what Eagles offensive lineman was recognized as a sexy single? Six-foot-six, 321-pound Todd Herremans. What's he looking for in a woman?
"A relaxed good time...I don't like women who always need to cuddle on you 24 hours a day. I need girls that have their own life going on. Easygoing."
Good call by Herremans not to include his e-mail address. It's a pretty safe bet he'd receive more "WHERE IS SHAWN ANDREWS?!" e-mails than "Want to go to dinner?" messages.
I was in the car listening to Mike Missanelli the other day, when a caller mentioned hearing Duce Staley on the radio in South Carolina. So I checked it out online, and there he is, a host on 107.5 The Game. Staley, of course, played his college ball for the University of South Carolina.
And finally, I noticed SI.com's Peter King was at Eagles training camp on Tuesday so I figured this was coming. Here is his postcard from Lehigh.
