  • Seattle QB coach Jim Zorn said at the Combine that he expects QB Matt Hasselbeck to work more on his deep passing game this offseason, as the team plans to go even more vertical in 2004.

  • Word out of Oakland indicates that it shouldn't come as a surprise if the Raiders end up making a pitch for Dolphins restricted free-agent DE Adewale Ogunleye.

  • Patriots LB Rosevelt Colvin has told reporters that he was assured a 100 percent recovery from the hip injury suffered in Week One of the 2003 season, but some team observers who spoke with medical experts on the injury are not so sure Colvin will be totally recovered by the start of the 2004 season.
