Key Decisions Upcoming on Kicker, T.O. and Johnson

New, comments

-- Update: The Cincinnati Enquirer claims that Titans LB Rocky Boiman might visit Dallas next week if his hometown Bengals don't sign him first. The four year veteran is a versatile backup who played all three LB positions for Tennessee. He is also a capable special teams player. He would likely put Ryan Fowler and Scott Shanle on the bubble -- assuming he ever made it to Dallas. He seemed enthused about returning home to Cincinnati.

-- Adam Schefter of says the Seahawks anticipate the Cowboys signing restricted free agent K Josh Brown to an offer sheet.

-- The Packers get their interview with Adam Vinatieri today and understand they will have to significantly outbid the Patriots for his services.

-- Cost may be a reason Dallas is eyeing Josh Brown. The Providence Journal claims Vinatieri wants a deal averaging more than $3 million per season.

-- The T.O. sweepstakes could be extensive. No team seems willing to express open interest in the free agent receiver. Chiefs' coach Herman Edwards said Wednesday his team had no plans to contact Owens.

-- Meanwhile, Keyshawn Johnson is trying to drum up interest. The Charlotte Observer quotes Keyshawn as being interested in playing with the Panthers. Johnson called Panthers OC Dan Henning the best OC he ever played for. Henning ran the Jets offense while Johnson was in New York.

-- Keyshawn also expressed interest in playing for the Patriots.

The same article claims New England may have interest in Eagles RT Jon Runyan but would not attempt to schedule a visit until Runyan returns from the Caribbean. (Lots of NFL folks are on vacation right now.)

-- -- Johnson also told the NFL Network he could see himself re-signing with the Cowboys.
