The Chiefs announced Tuesday that they have traded PK Lawrence Tynes to the Giants in exchange for future considerations. Tynes is expected to be the starting kicker for New York in 2007, while the Chiefs will presumably go with Justin Medlock, a fifth-round pick out of UCLA. Last year, Tynes made 24-of-31 field goals (a long of 53 yards) while notching 35 of 36 extra points....

The only thing known right now about the Titans' receivers is that no one can be called No. 1. David Givens is still recovering from two surgeries on his left knee. Two-year veteran Brandon Jones, whose 27 catches led all receivers still on the roster, said it's not him. Free agent signee Justin Gage, who caught only four passes last year with Chicago, said opportunity to play was what attracted him to Tennessee in free agency. The 6-foot-4 receiver has 64 career catches, with an average of 14 yards per reception. "Knowing the talent we have, it's going to be a battle. I definitely think we have some good receivers that can take us as far as we want to go," he said.

WR Keyshawn Johnson will visit the Titans on Friday. His relationship with Titans coach Jeff Fisher goes back to Southern California, when the coach played for the Trojans and Johnson was a ball boy. "I know Jeff, but I don't know the organization and I don't know the makeup of the team and the coaching staff. I know a little bit about Norm Chow. I know Norm from college. At the same time, I want to make sure everything's the right fit," Johnson said. "I was in a situation last year I thought was the right situation, and wind up a year later going in another direction. I want to make sure it's something everybody is committed to for the next couple of years. They're committed to me, and I'm committed to them, whoever it is I go play for."....

According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Kansas City QB Trent Green is reportedly prepared to take another step toward maneuvering his way onto the Dolphins' roster. Green is set to attend Kansas City's upcoming workout sessions that begin Monday. The Chiefs cannot bar Green from participating and would have to guarantee his 2007 base salary of $7.2 million if he suffered a season-ending injury during a session. While such a scenario is unlikely, the risk of Green getting seriously hurt could push Kansas City closer toward making a trade with the Dolphins. The Dolphins are reportedly willing to raise their trade offer and send more than a sixth-round draft pick to the Chiefs for a player who would become their starting quarterback.....

According to the Nashville City Paper, Titans RB LenDale White did not work Wednesday and won’t go Thursday because of his sore hamstring. “He’s doing fine, but we’ve just decided to hold him out this week,” coach Jeff Fisher said.....

Rod Smith, 37, said Thursday that his bum left hip - and not age - caused him to lose a step last season. He also revealed that the hip, which he had surgically repaired in February, had been bothering him since 2004, the year before he earned his third trip to the Pro Bowl. "Last year I couldn't even sleep ... because my leg was throbbing all night," Smith said. "So, basically, I stayed up the whole year last year and that's not good. That's what makes you old, when you're not getting any rest and you've got to go out here and fight with these young dudes. That's what gets you run out of the league real quick." Smith said his hip was such a mess - torn labrum, frayed cartilage, bone spurs, floating fragments - that his surgeon couldn't believe he had played at all last season.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Falcons WR Brian Finneran re-injured the surgically repaired left knee that sidelined him all last season. He will undergo further tests before it can be determined if he will return this season. But it doesn't look good, and ESPN is reporting Finneran will miss this season as well. Finneran re-injured the knee in which he tore his anterior cruciate ligament during training camp in 2006 while doing rehabilitative work last weekend during the Falcons' mandatory minicamp.....

QB Brett Favre plans to skip the Green Bay Packers' mandatory minicamp this weekend, saying the move is not related to his frustration with the team's unwillingness to complete a trade for wide receiver Randy Moss. Favre told the Biloxi Sun-Herald that because he is unable to practice while recovering from offseason ankle surgery, he is going to stay home with his family in Mississippi. "They were going to have me sit out anyway," Favre said. "To be honest, we have (daughter) Brittany graduating in two weeks. Instead of going up there and not doing anything, I will be better off being at home because of graduation parties and banquets." Favre said he isn't skipping the minicamp as a protest with the team's front office. "I am frustrated," Favre told the paper. "But being frustrated and not going are not related.".

Brett Favre Unhappy with Packers

Barring any setbacks, Donovan McNabb should be ready when the Philadelphia Eagles open training camp in 2 1/2 months. The five-time Pro Bowl quarterback has rehabbed vigorously since a knee injury ended his season in Week 11 last year. He's running and throwing and is on course for a complete return when players report to camp on July 27. McNabb is spending a lot of time at the team's practice facility, but also will rehab at his home in Arizona part of the summer. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee last Nov. 19. It was the third time in five years that McNabb's regular season ended in mid-November. "He's been throwing once a week, and he looks good in that area," coach Andy Reid said Monday after the team completed its first minicamp. "Progressively, he'll be given more days where he can get out and throw, and he'll continue his rehab. The closer we get to camp, he'll be back to full speed. So, we're expecting him, when camp starts, to be able to participate."....

In an interview with CBS SportsLine, Falcons coach Bobby Petrino spoke about Michael Vick and what he expects to see from him this season. Earlier this offseason, Petrino made mention that he wanted Vick to throw more and run less as to suit the team's offensive gameplan. "I know that he's going to run the football. And I want him to do that when it presents itself," Petrino said. "But we do want to be able to throw the ball down the field, be able to get defenses out of dropping the eighth man down -- or take advantage of it when they do. ... We certainly want to throw the ball more effectively and be a bigger threat throwing the football. ... Michael can really throw the ball deep -- his arm strength and his wrist have really surprised me."....

Julius Jones felt he was running "like a robot" at times last season, controlled by what his coach told him to do and how the Cowboys used him. Even though he became the first Cowboys running back since Emmitt Smith in 2001 to have a 1,000-yard season, Jones became unsure of his role. Though he started every game, he rarely played on third down or in goal-line situations, then averaged only 11 carries the final five games. New coach Wade Phillips expects Jones to play a significant part in the Cowboys' offense this season. "He's been productive here. I think he'll continue to be," Phillips said. "He's a good screen runner, good draw runner, stretch outside runner that can cut. We're going to get him the ball as much as we can."
