Craig Nall Wants It
-Scott Pitoniak, writer from the Democart and Chronicle, is reporting that Buffalo Bills newly acquired quarterback Craig Nall believes he can win the starting job. He will be competing with the youngster J.P. Losman and the veteran Kelly Holcomb.

"[I'm] Very confident," said Nall. "I don't think I could be here if I wasn't. I really needed a chance to have someone believe that I can do the job."

There was also speculation that Nall could be traded elsewhere is he will not be the starter. On top of Nall competing, WR Lee Evans is ready to take the number one receiving job after the departure of Eric Moulds, reports Chris Brown of BuffaloBills.com.

"(I've been preparing for this) since I first stepped in the door. You work every day to get better and get more opportunities," said Evans.

Josh Reed will probably be the team's second receiver.

Ricky Williams is Clean
-Greg A. Bedard, of the Palm Beach Post, says that Miami Dolphins head coach Nick Saban does not believe RB Ricky Williams has a drug problem.

"I'm very much convinced of it. I've been with the guy all this time. He's had a significant amount of drug tests. You know, so it depends on how you define that problem. But I'd just like to say we're going to be very supportive of Ricky."

Williams and RB Ronnie Brown will probably split carries once again this year, as the experiment worked well last year. Now, they have Daunte Culpepper at quarterback as well.

Priest Holmes In the Air
-Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Trent Green has started that Holmes' status with the team is still up in the air, reports KCChiefs.com.

"I've talked to him very little. He's still up in the air. It all comes down to the medical part of it. Until he feels comfortable with the diagnosis and the testing and doctors say he's going to be fine and say you don't have to be worried about any further risk, then he's going to hold out on his decision. And it seems because he respects his contract and he gave some leeway to the organization that the organization is going to be patient as well," stated Green.

The Chiefs probably will not keep Holmes, since Larry Johnson has shown he could almost easily be a 2,000 yard rusher, which is unbelievable.

Bengals' Palmer Doing Well
Chick Ludwig of the Sporting News is reporting that Bengals QB Carson Palmer is progressing well after his knee injury this past season. He is currently on pace to take his first snap of the year during the preseason, which will hopefully prepare him for the team's opener on September 10th.

Eagles Trading Draft Pick for Ngata?
Mark Eckel of the Sporting News is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles are interested in trading up in the first round of the draft. They currently hold the 14th overall pick, and want to move up so they can select defensive tackle Haloti Ngata. At the moment, Ngata could probably go as high as the sixth pick in the draft.
