Everything you wanted to know about Alterraun Verner but were afraid to ask. Don't forget that me, Rob Weintraub, Russ Lande and Dan Pompeii are playing GM for a Day for all 32 teams, right though the start of free agency. Rob's Bengals essay should be on Sports on Earth now.

There will be a Matt Waldman column soon on the four top Speed Score guys and their strengths and weaknesses. Meanwhile, top prospect Ka'Deem Carey of Arizona had a Speed Score of 84.8, which would be the lowest ever for a player chosen in the first three rounds of the draft who wasn't immediately moved to wide receiver. (Hi, Dexter McCluster.)
Offensive line is the key in Seattle and St. Louis, while San Francisco needs to work on its secondary and the Cardinals need a quarterback of the future.
Panthers tackle Jordan Gross will call it a career. The No. 8 overall pick in the 2003 draft exits after 162 starts, three Pro Bowls, and one first-team All-Pro selection. Carolina has a huge hole to replace.
A look at South Carolina's receiver-return specialist who is football's version of a Swiss Army Knife equipped with a butane lighter that doubles as a jet pack. More at the RSP blog (link above).
