Steve Smith Wants To Play For Chargers/Ravens

15

Apparently Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers is none too happy with his current home. He is to have said he wants to be traded to either the Ravens or Chargers. I doubt it would happen as AJ doesn't like to invest in aging receivers and we already have a good WR core, but who knows

John Gennaro on The Brandon Spano Show

You know how I was complaining about how none of these radio shows that interview me have a "Listen Live" feature so you guys can listen in? This one does! If you don't see the "Listen Live" button on the right-hand side, just go up to "Radio" on the navigation bar and click "Listen Now". Or just click here. That should (maybe) work. I should be on around 7:20pm Pacific tonight, talking about the Chargers draft strategy. Maybe one of these days a San Diego radio station will want to interview me and you guys can listen in your car. Wink wink.

Ryan Kerrigan NFL Draft Scouting Report

More love for Dove. This time it's for Mocking The Draft's Jon Dove's scouting report on potential Chargers target (and Kevin Acee crush) Ryan Kerrigan.

Part 2 of the cheat sheet developed by Jon Dove at SBN's Mocking The Draft site. It divides up which players would be targets in each of the 3 rounds and then further break them up by position. It's a great way for when your team's pick is coming up, and you know you want a player that plays a certain position, to see who is left and worthy of that pick.

Think of this as a sort of draft cheat sheet. Jon Dove at SBN's Mocking The Draft site had an idea to divide up which players would be targets in each of the 3 rounds and then further break them up by position. It's a great way for when your team's pick is coming up, and you know you want a player that plays a certain position, to see who is left and worthy of that pick.

Eric Weddle sues Alka-Seltzer (yes, Alka-Seltzer)

Weddle, through Canter, had sent a letter to Bayer and Athlon demanding that the items bearing Weddle’s likeness be removed from stores. Apparently, they weren’t. Regardless of how it all turns out, it’s another example of the ongoing tension between college athletes and NCAA sports programs. If, as we assume, the materials displayed the Utah logo, Utah presumably was compensated. That said, there’s a good chance that Weddle signed over to Utah the ability to use his likeness without compensation.

Shaun Philips on BarFly with Mark Kriegel

You have to get through the Jay Glazer interview, but he talks about the lock-out, his off season workout, etc. Seems like a chill guy.

What we will to build together at SB Nation is a new media company — buoyed by the absolutely incredible work SB Nation has already done in publishing — and part of that new media company will be the as-yet-unnamed gadget and technology site that I’ll be working over the next few months to create. When we launch (hopefully in the fall), I will be editor-in-chief of a property that I hope will inform, entertain, and engage fans of technology in whole new ways.

Team From Engadget Makes Jump to SB Nation Not sure how many of you have been following the saga over at Engadget, but basically, AOL is running Engadget and the other WebLogs Inc sites into the ground. Joshua Topolsky (editor-in-chief) and a few other writers have left Engadget, and are now coming over to SB Nation to start up a new Technology site. This makes me giddy.
