Your Daily FF Football News Update...

Fantasy football news...minus the ads and the defensive players...let us know here at the Triple B what your thoughts are on this. If we hear from you we will continue to run this daily...

-- McDaniels a My-Way-Or-The-Highway Coach --

The National Football Post reports Denver Broncos HC Josh McDaniels is rapidly building a reputation as a my-way-or-the-highway type of guy. In an extensive article on McDaniels, the Denver Post reports that the former New England Patriots offensive coordinator and star QB Tom Brady didn't exchange a word of conversation for three weeks during his first year coaching the Pro Bowl passer. That would suggest that it's not always the player who's the impetus for a conflict, including McDaniels' clashes with QB Jay Cutler, WR Brandon Marshall and TE Tony Scheffler in Denver. McDaniels made it clear that he doesn't intend to change his hard-nosed approach. "In terms of going through adversities, the goal would be to not have to deal with many, if any," said McDaniels. "When there are things that come up that you feel contradict your belief or your message that you've extended to your players, I think you have to react and hold yourself accountable to what you're saying you're all about. Or else your words become hollow and they stop listening. If you don't do that, you ask whether you really believe in your own message. And I do."
-- Seahawks Sign Sean Morey --
•ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Seattle Seahawks have signed free-agent WR Sean Morey to a multi-year contract.

-- Panthers Re-Sign Four --
•The Rock Hill Herald reports the Panthers took care of a little housekeeping, getting their four exclusive-rights free agents signed. WR Kenny Moore, WR Charly Martin, DT Nick Hayden and LB Jordan Senn signed their one-year deals late last week. Their contracts had expired after last season, but they weren't able to negotiate with other teams.

-- Matt Jones Excited --
•The Cincinnati Enquirer reports WR Matt Jones, who signed a one-year contract with the Bengals last month, will be in Cincinnati with most of the team on Monday, when the offseason conditioning program begins. It’s the first step on the road back to the NFL for Jones, who was a first-round draft pick by Jacksonville in 2005 but sat out last season due to inconsistency on the field and drug and legal problems off of it. “I knew if I stayed focused and I wanted another opportunity that I had to keep with it and work it out,” Jones said. “I’m excited about the opportunity to play with Cincinnati.” The road to Jones getting another chance in the NFL has been long. After being released by Jacksonville last March, Jones could not catch on with another team last season despite leading the Jaguars in receptions with 65 and yards with 761 in 12 games in 2008. It was during that year that things began to unravel for Jones.

-- Santonio Holmes Facing Civil Lawsuit --
•The National Football Post reports Pittsburgh Steelers WR Santonio Holmes has been hit with a civil lawsuit for assault and battery, a legal action stemming from an alleged March 7 incident at an Orlando nightclub. The lawsuit was filed on March 24, according to, and it makes allegations of assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The woman also sued the nightclub for alleged negligent failure to provide adequate security. The lawsuit alleges that Holmes was involved in a confrontation with a woman named Anshonoe Mills, who filed the civil action against the former Super Bowl Most Valuable Player. According to the court document, Mills alleged that Holmes put his hand in her face while attempting to make her leave a VIP couch inside Rain nightclub. Then, Holmes allegedly threw a glass cup filled with liquor in her face. That allegedly caused a laceration below her eyebrow and temporary blindness. The woman also alleges that she suffered "extreme mental anguish and embarrassment as well as physical injury." Mills said that Holmes offered her money because he was concerned about getting in trouble and affecting his NFL status. Mills alleged that she felt pressured by the Steelers wideout and Orlando police officers to not go ahead with charges. Mills states that no police report was filed.

-- Willie Parker Bitter Toward Steelers --
•Pittsburgh Post Gazette’s Ed Bouchette reports free agent RB Willie Parker (Steelers), who turns 30 on Nov. 11, remains unsigned. Parker is so bitter toward the Steelers about his treatment last season that he would rather sit out 2010 than play in Pittsburgh again. The Steelers hardly used Parker after he had a foot injury in the third game. He had a total of just 34 carries in the 10 games before the Miami game, when he ran for 91 yards on 12 carries.

-- Buccaneers Re-Sign Angelo Crowell & Mark Bradley --
•ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas reports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have re-signed LB Angelo Crowell to a one-year contract. Crowell didn’t live up to the expectations the Bucs had when they signed him as a free agent last year. He couldn’t crack the starting lineup and ended up getting hurt. But Crowell had some potential, once upon a time, and the Bucs are giving him another shot. In other news, the Bucs announced restricted free agent WR Mark Bradley has signed his tender offer.
