Lenny P. talks about how Aaron Ross and Ted Ginn are double threats because they can make contributions on defense/offense, and ignite the special teams. From the same article, it’s the rumor that won’t die.

There continue to be rumblings that a few teams have inquired about the availability of Dallas starter Julius Jones, who has rushed for 2,896 yards in three seasons and is coming off a 2006 campaign in which he posted a career-best 1,084 yards. It's not the first time such rumors have surrounded Jones, with talk before last year's draft that he might be swapped to the New York Jets. Jones is a tough, pinball-style runner, but there are concerns about his long-term durability. And while backup Marion Barber III hasn't yet carried more than 150 times in a season, the suspicion is that some Dallas officials feel he is ready to take over the No. 1 role.

Jacques Reeves signs his tender.

Terry Glenn ranks 5th on ESPN’s list of all-time #7 picks (since 1967).

5. WR Terry Glenn (1996) -- Patriots
The second wide receiver taken in the impressive first-round class of 1996, the former Ohio State standout has not put up the career numbers of Marvin Harrison or Keyshawn Johnson, but has enjoyed an impressive career. Glenn has registered 593 receptions and 44 touchdowns with the Patriots, Packers and Cowboys. In his first season, Glenn set a then-rookie record with 90 catches and was a key component of the Patriots' team that reached Super Bowl XXXI.
