... All-Pro Team, Browns, TO and more...

To's ankle remains questionable

Terrell Owens suddenly seems a lot more questionable to face 
the Giants on Sunday than he did early in the week. The 
Cowboys' Pro Bowl wideout, who is battling a high left ankle 
sprain suffered just three weeks ago, didn't practice yesterday 
and probably won't practice today, either. Owens took part 
in a walk-through with the team Monday but couldn't even 
bring himself to do that yesterday. He also didn't speak 
with reporters, save one hallway interview with a curvy, 
bare mid-riffed reporter from Mexico's TV Azteca. Owens, who 
set the Cowboys' single-season franchise record with 15 
touchdown catches this season, is instead working on the 
side with the team's training and medical staffs. "He says 
he's feeling a little better - that's all I know," coach Wade 
Phillips said yesterday. "It's day-to-day. He works at it at 
home trying to get better, but this is sometimes a six-to-eight 
week injury. Sometimes it's a four-week injury, but we're 
trying to get him back in three." Phillips said the Cowboys 
remain hopeful Owens will start against Big Blue after he 
recovered with lightning speed from a broken ankle three years 
ago to play for the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX against 
New England. "The guy played a pretty good Super Bowl game 
they said he wasn't going to play," Phillips said. "I've 
got to be hopeful of that."


Browns plan to extend Crennel's deal, keep Anderson as starting QB

As a reward for Cleveland's comeback season, the Browns plan 
to extend coach Romeo Crennel's contract. We have every intention 
of doing something right by Romeo," Browns general manager Phil 
Savage said Wednesday. Crennel, 60, signed a five-year deal with 
the Browns in 2005. He began this past season with his future in 
doubt and a 10-22 record to show for his first two seasons in 
Cleveland. But after a terrible start, the Browns went 10-6 
behind an explosive offense and barely missed the AFC playoffs.
Crennel, who won five Super Bowl rings as an assistant, is 20-28 
in his first stint as an NFL head coach. Savage said Crennel's 
extension will be addressed in the near future, possibly in the 
next few days. "Romeo has a great connection with the team," said 
Savage, who praised Crennel's efforts during his 2007 season wrapup 
news conference. "I think the players really respect him." Earlier 
this week, the Browns gave offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski a 
two-year extension. Savage said the Browns were "open to a couple 
of different things" when he was asked if Crennel would get a 
multiyear extension. Also, Savage said the Browns have begun talks 
with quarterback Derek Anderson's representatives on a long-term 
contract. Anderson, who began the season as Cleveland's backup, 
threw 29 touchdown passes in his first year as a starter and was 
selected as a Pro Bowl alternate. Savage believes Anderson, 
scheduled to become a restricted free agent, deserves to start 
again following his breakout season. "He deserves a chance to 
go into the batter's box and swing for the fences next year," 
Savage said. The Browns want to prevent Anderson from going 
on the open market, where other teams could make him an offer 
Cleveland would have to match to keep the 24-year-old quarterback.
With Brady Quinn waiting in the wings, the Browns feel they 
have two good quarterbacks -- a rare commodity in the league.
"We want to go into next season with both quarterbacks," Savage 
said. "I don't want to do anything to derail us from having a 
good season." Also, Savage is hoping to re-sign running back 
Jamal Lewis to a long-term contract. Lewis rushed for 1,304 
yards in his first season for Cleveland, which signed him to 
a one-year, incentive-based deal in March. "Jamal has indicated 
that he really likes it here," Savage said.

Judge Cuts Titans Out of 'Pacman' Suit

A Nevada judge dropped the Tennessee Titans as a defendant 
in a lawsuit brought by a strip club employee paralyzed in a 
triple shooting following a melee involving suspended player 
Adam "Pacman" Jones. Clark County District Court Judge Jessie 
Walsh agreed with team lawyers who contended the Titans should 
not be held responsible for Jones' behavior at the Minxx 
Gentleman's Club last Feb. 19, during the NBA All-Star 
weekend. That was the night Tommy Urbanski and two other people 
were wounded. Lawyers for the NFL say they intend to file a 
similar request next week for the judge to drop the league 
from the case. Urbanski's lawyer, Matthew Dushoff, says he'll 
seek a rehearing.


Gridiron Greats to raise $500K for needy NFL retirees

From poker to beer sales, the days leading up to the Super Bowl 
offer the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund many chances to raise 
money for needy retired NFL players.  The nonprofit group 
launched by former Green Bay Packers star Jerry Kramer hopes to 
raise $500,000 through its efforts, said Jennifer Smith, 
executive director of the Green Bay-based fund. More than 70 
former NFL players and coaches are expected to participate in 
at least one of the events to be held during Super Bowl week 
in Phoenix. Among the people scheduled to attend are ex-Bears 
coach Mike Ditka, former Dolphins coach Don Shula, former Bears 
linebacker Dick Butkus, ex-Packers running back Paul Hornung, 
ex-Lions running back Barry Sanders and former Bills quarterback 
Jim Kelly. Miller Brewing Co. will donate a portion of sales of 
Miller Lite bottles and cases in Arizona from Jan. 1 to Feb. 3, 
spokesman Julian Green said. He said Miller also is hosting a 
monthlong fundraising campaign for the group that's expected to 
raise $100,000. Events include a dinner, a party, and golf 
and poker tournaments. For a minimum $6,000 donation, four 
people can play golf with an NFL great. A "Texas Hold Em" 
poker tournament has a $1,000 buy-in, which includes being 
seated with a football star. The top prize: a Harley-Davidson 
motorcycle. An online auction that ends on Super Bowl Sunday 
Feb. 3 allows fans to bid on taking an African safari trip 
with Hall of Fame players, having dinner with Ditka in 
Chicago, and memorabilia signed by players. A sneak peek of 
the items will go up next week on the group's Web site, with 
bidding to begin the week of Jan. 21. Starting Friday, fans 
can buy tickets to a dinner during Super Bowl week that will 
feature Ditka and dozens of other players. Tickets cost $250 
or $500 and some include the chance to sit with an NFL great.
