Cowboys | Team Notes

Sat, 24 Feb 2001 23:10:00 -0800

The Dallas Morning News reports Dallas Cowboys LB Dexter Coakley will enter the free agent market as an unrestricted free agent March 2. The Cowboys have yet to contact his agent about a new contract, but that does not bother Coakley because he knows he's in for a big payday - somewhere.

The Cowboys are expected to tender one-year contracts of $519,000 to restricted free agents LB Darren Hambrick, S Izell Reese and FB Robert Thomas that will give them the right of first refusal.

Releasing those players would save the Cowboys about $8 million against their 2001 salary cap. Two other players with big roster bonuses, OC Mark Stepnoski ($1.2 million) and TE Jackie Harris ($100,000), are expected to be back with the team.

Saints | Meet with Free Agents

Thu, 10 Jun 1999 07:55:00 -0700

The Times Picayune reports that as reported yesterday, the Saints visited with CB Ryan McNeil, FB Tim Lester, LB Anthony Davis and P Tommy Barnhardt, all visited with the Saints on Wednesday. Saints VP Charles Bailey was impressed by McNeil's visit, but coach Mike Ditka is happy with his current starters so there is no way of knowing which way the Saints will proceed at CB, especially with Ashley Ambrose due in today. Davis, a starter for the Chiefs last season, was unimpressive in his workout and told team officials he hadn't been working out regularly. Lester was able to pass his physical as he recovers from a shoulder injury and as far as Barnhardt goes, the Saints already have a good punter in Mark Royals, who many feel already has the punting job locked up.

Saints | Free Agency Note

Wed, 09 Jun 1999 08:10:00 -0700

As reported earlier the list of players who have visited and will or have taken physicals includes, OT Andy Heck (Monday), LB Dixon Edwards (Tuesday), CB Ryan McNeil (today), P Tommy Barnhardt (today), FB Tim Lester (today), LB Anthony Davis (today), LB Greg Lloyd (Thursday) and CB Ashley Ambrose (Thursday). "This is a procedure that we're going through," Saints coach Mike Ditka said. "Charlie Bailey is bringing these guys in here so we can take a look at them, talk about them and see if they can help us. But I like the guys that we've got. I have no problem with our guys."

Saints | Looking for Defensive Players

Thu, 03 Jun 1999 07:45:00 -0700

The Times Picayune reports that the Saints will turn their attention to the defensive side of the ball in their pursuit of any new Free Agents, according to president/GM Bill Kuharich. He's happy with his offensive acquisitions this off-season, "so probably the initial focus will be on the defensive side. All of the positions are available, but once again it depends if there's a safety out there, if there's a linebacker, if there's another defensive lineman. You can't be too rich in defensive linemen. So I think it's a player-by-player evaluation of who comes free." At the conclusion of the team's three-day minicamp today, Kuharich will sit down with coach Mike Ditka and new assistant GM Charles Bailey to evaluate where the Saints are at and to look at any potential moves. Some names still being tossed around are CBs Ashley Ambrose and Ryan McNeil. LB Dixon Edwards (just released by the Vikings) could also spark some interest from the Saints. The Saints are about $2.6 million under the salary cap.

Bengals | Expected to Re-Sign Sawyer

Sat, 08 May 1999 10:50:00 -0700

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that pending his passing a physical, the Bengals will re-sign CB Corey Sawyer to a new three-year contract on Monday. Coach Bruce Coslet expects Corey Sawyer to battle rookie Charles Fisher for the starting spot at left cornerback. "I'm not giving anybody a job," Coslet said. "We like Corey, and it's a good acquisition. I want the flexibility to go with a veteran if it gets tough. We'll see what happens." The signing of Sawyer more that likely eliminates the re-signing of Ashley Ambrose. He's now waiting until June 1st when teams can free up some salary cap money. The 49ers are interested in Ambrose and although the Vikings called him, they seem to have more interest in Ryan McNeil. In other team news, the Bengals are close to signing fourth-round pick, WR Craig Yeast of Kentucky.
