In limbo, free agent Mikell works out with Eagles

June 7 CSN Philly:

Safety Quintin Mikell is working hard this off-season preparing himself for another year in the NFL. He just doesn’t know what color jersey he’ll be wearing.  Mikell was at the voluntary informal workouts at the Memorial Sports Complex in Marlton, N.J., again on Monday morning. He was joined by Austin Howard, Trevor Laws, Eldra Buckley, Jamar Chaney, former Eagle Matt McCoy and Moorestown High School (N.J.) alumnus and Minnesota Viking Albert Young.

Family time, then football in plans for freed Burress

June 7 Camden Courier-Post:

Clad nearly all in black — hooded sweat shirt, athletic shorts, sneakers — and a white T-shirt, the tall, lanky man walked alone through the gate in a chain-link fence topped by swirls of barbed wire.  Plaxico Burress looked around for something familiar, and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, ran up and jumped into his arms as both men smiled broadly.

NFL files motion to dismiss players’ antitrust lawsuit

The NFL filed a “motion to dismiss” the Brady et al v. National Football League et al case with the district court in Minnesota on Monday, setting up a play to shut down the antitrust suit and take away the players’ biggest piece of leverage in the ongoing labor fight.  The filing was largely a procedural matter, coming on the same day the league’s response to the players’ amended complaint was due. The NFL will still be responsible for filing an answer, but not until after the court rules on its motion.
