Tampa Bay Buccaneers: The Michael Pittman fiasco may have no end in sight. His probation revocation hearing has been delayed once more and Tempe, Ariz. City prosecutor Robert Hubbard said the new date -- provided a hearing still is necessary -- likely will be after the Bucs running back's criminal trial on two felony counts of aggravated assault and one count of aggravated domestic violence. The criminal trial is set for Feb. 19. "It kind of makes sense to conduct a trial prior to the probation hearing in case the defendant is found guilty,'' Hubbard told the Tampa Tribune. "Then there would be no reason to have a probation hearing.''

Miami Dolphins: The club has yet to fill its open general manager position, but it's certainly not for a lack of effort. The Dolphins have already interviewed five people and got permission Thursday to interview Ted Thompson, the Seattle Seahawks' vice president of football operations. Thompson comes highly recommended by Ron Wolf, who has already turned down the job. Wolf was Thompson's boss as Green Bay's general manager during the 1990s, and that familiarity could play a big factor because Wolf may still join the Dolphins in a consultant role. "We're in the process of trying to figure out what the role would be," Wolf told the Palm Beach Post. "What we're trying to do, on both sides, is determine how it would function."

Green Bay Packers: It may not be the Super Bowl Shuffle, but the Packers now have their own postseason anthem. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that S Darren Sharper and DCT Sports Marketing have teamed up to present a rock-rap tune entitled "Bringin' the Pain". "This is the perfect time to release an anthem," Sharper said in a statement promoting the song. "We feel that this is a season of destiny for the Packers." The song was written and performed by a local band but Sharper heard it and decided to tinker with the words to give it a more football feel. The song is not officially endorsed by the Packers organization, and a sample of the lyrics show that might be a wise decision&Bone-crushing hits / To make a grown man sit down / Look at his face / I've got it tattooed in the ground&Come in your home and make it mine / While you're sidelined / And you're late because you ran out of time / 'Cause I'm bringin' the pain!
