ProFootballTalk is reporting that, although there haven’t been any solid negotiations, Darrelle Revis does not wish to be traded by the New York Jets.
The source insists Revis doesn’t wanted to be traded, hasn’t asked to be traded, and has never at any time during his career in New York intimated directly or indirectly a desire to be sent to a new team.
About a week ago, it was all but certain that Revis was on his way out of New York, and it still seems as though the Jets are leaning in that direction.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the St. Louis Rams are set to part ways with Pro Bowl safety Quintin Mikell.
Mikell, who is one of the most durable safeties in the NFL (he has only missed one game in the past five seasons), is set to make $6 million next season, so his release would give the Rams some much needed cap relief.
In 16 games in 2012, the 32 year-old Mikell recorded 101 tackles, 3.0 sackes and 4 forced fumbles.
According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, the Philadelphia Eagles are interested in boosting their wide receiving corps by adding the St. Louis Rams’ Danny Amendola.
They’re interested in pursuing Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola, a person with direct knowledge of the team’s free agency plans told CSNPhilly.com. Amendola, who has two 60-plus catch seasons in the past three years, is one of the NFL’s most productive slot wideouts, although he can also play outside and is an excellent return specialist.
If he signed with the Eagles (he was on the their practice squad in 2009), Amendola would join a stable of WRs that already includes: Pro Bowler DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin, Jason Avant and Damaris Johnson.
During the 2012 season, Amendola missed five games with a clavicle injury, but still managed to haul in 63 catches for 666 yards and 3 touchdowns.
CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs and Glenn Dorsey are closing in on a new deal that would keep the defensive lineman in KC.
As La Canfora notes, it seemed like Dorsey was essentially out the door in Kansas City after he struggled early and finished the 2012 season on IR with a calf injury.
In 4 games last year, the former fifth overall pick (2008) had 7 tackles and 0.0 sacks.
Ever since the Pittsburgh Steelers cut ties with linebacker James Harrison, Harrison’s agent Bill Parise has been diligently working the phones, and thinks his client would fit in well with a handful of NFL teams.

“Baltimore would be a great fit for James,” agent Bill Parise said. “They’re a contender and a class organization, so James would definitely be interested. I would think they would have a need with the market for Kruger.”

In an interview with USA Today, Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver (and possible upcoming free agent), Greg Jennings said that the coaching and quarterback situation is extremely important when it comes to choosing a potential team for the upcoming season.
“Coaching means a lot, the dynamic of the team,” he told USA TODAY Sports. “To me, the quarterback means a lot, if they have one or not, and I have to make sure my family is comfortable.”
Jennings missed a large chunk of the 2012 season with a nagging groin injury and had 36 receptions for 366 yards and 4 touchdowns in 8 games (5 starts).
In 7 seasons with the Packers, Jennings has 425 receptions for 6,537 yards and 53 touchdowns.
