  • Insiders say Saints RB Deuce McAllister is slowly becoming fed up with the lack of support he has been getting on both sides of the ball, but he has been biting his tongue to avoid creating any controversy in the locker room.

  • Even though Eagles RB Duce Staley has improved significantly since the beginning of the season and is a vital part of the team's rushing attack, it's still a longshot that he will be re-signed at season's end.

  • With backup QB Josh McCown continuing to struggle every time he gets a chance to play, we hear it's very possible the Cardinals' No. 1 priority in the next draft will be a quarterback.
