-After only appearing briefly in the Jets' preseason opener, LaDainian Tomlinson is expected to play much more in exhibition #2, Sunday night against Cincinnati. That's right, it'll be LT and Kerley against Dalton and Bart Johnson.
-It looks as though Colin Jones is being groomed as a new leader for the 49ers' special teams. The club likes his versatility- even lining him up at WR some days in practice, and has him rooming with veteran and former special teams captain CJ Spillman.
-Malcolm Williams did not record a tackle in the Patriots' preseason game last night against Tampa Bay, which may not bode well in his battle to make the roster. That article mentions that the Pats like Marcus Cannon and are hopeful that he'll be cleared to play at some point, but doesn't mention Zach Roth.
-After starting 8 games over the past two years in St. Louis, Quincy Butler has been signed by New Orleans. He spent much of the 2008 season on the Saints' practice squad.
-The Browns' blog "Dawgs by Nature" projects Evan Frosch to be cut by the squad when final rosters are announced. Hope they are wrong!
