Lawyer: Former Bengals WR Chris Henry trying for NFL team

Former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry will be 
released from court-ordered electronic monitoring and house 
arrest so he can try out for another NFL team. Hamilton County 
Municipal Court Judge Richard Bernat issued the ruling Tuesday, 
when Henry's attorney Perry Ancona said the player has an offer 
to try out for a team. Ancona did not identify the team.
The 24-year-old has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges 
of assault and criminal damaging dating to March, when a 
University of Cincinnati student told police Henry punched him 
in the head and damaged his car. Henry was suspended by the NFL 
for eight games last season because of earlier arrests. The 
Bengals released him last month. Henry will be required to show 
the court a letter from the team he's trying out for before he's 
permitted to travel.

Bears release S Adam Archuleta

The Chicago Bears released veteran strong safety Adam Archuleta 
on Tuesday, ending a brief and disappointing tenure with the team.
Archuleta, 30, broke a hand early last season and started in just 
10 of the 15 games in which he appeared. He lost his starting job 
to Brandon McGowan and finished the season on special teams.
The Bears drafted LSU safety Craig Steltz in the fourth round 
of last month, but Tuesday's announcement was still a surprise. 
Coach Lovie Smith said at an NFL combine in February the Bears 
did not plan to cut Archuleta. "Adam, just like some more of 
our players, didn't have the type of season we were hoping, he 
was hoping," Smith said. "But he's still a part of our ballclub 
and we're expecting him to come back stronger this year." The 
Bears acquired Archuleta from the Washington Redskins in March 
2007 for a sixth-round draft pick. When he joined Washington 
in 2006, he received the largest contract ever given to a 
safety: $30 million for six years, with a $10 million bonus. 
But he flopped, starting seven games while playing mostly on 
special teams and finishing the season as a third-stringer.
St. Louis drafted Archuleta with the 20th overall pick in 2001.

Jets resign CB Poteat to 1-year deal

The New York Jets re-signed veteran cornerback Hank Poteat to 
a one-year deal Tuesday. Poteat was an unrestricted free agent. 
He spent the last two seasons with the Jets and played in every 
game, notching a career-high 45 tackles while starting nine 
games. Poteat had the first two interceptions of his eight-year 
NFL career in consecutive games last season against Philadelphia's 
Donovan McNabb and Cincinnati's Carson Palmer. The 30-year-old 
Poteat is expected to give the Jets' secondary some depth along 
with starter Darrelle Revis, fourth-round pick Dwight Lowery and 
veterans David Barrett, Justin Miller and Andre Woolfolk. A 
third-round pick out of Pittsburgh in 2000, Poteat has also 
played for Tampa Bay and New England.

Steelers draft pick Mendenhall robbed

Pittsburgh Steelers first-round draft pick Rashard Mendenhall 
was robbed at gunpoint along the Chicago lakefront early Monday, 
his mother and agent said. The former running back was not hurt 
in the robbery, during which two people stole Mendenhall's wallet 
and cellular telephone, his mother, Sybil Mendenhall, told the 
Chicago Tribune. "He didn't get hit or anything, he didn't get 
hurt or anything," Sybil Mendenhall said. "He's fine." Police 
spokesman John Mirabelli said a man and a woman were robbed at 
the lakefront around 2 a.m. Monday by two offenders, but 
declined to identify the victims. No one was in custody for 
the crime, he said. "It was obviously a scary moment," Mendenhall's 
agent, Mike McCartney, told the Chicago Sun-Times. "But he is fine. 
He is doing great. He said he doesn't have anything that is worth 
his life." The Steelers selected Mendenhall with the 23rd pick 
in this year's NFL draft. The 20-year-old Mendenhall skipped 
his senior year at Illinois to enter the draft. He was the 2007 
Big Ten offensive player of the year.

Redskins draft pick Fred Davis a no-show at practice

Washington Redskins second-round draft pick Fred Davis did not 
show up for minicamp practice Sunday, having overslept on just 
his third day in the NFL. The team sent security officials to 
track down the tight end after he failed to arrive as scheduled 
from a local hotel, where the rookies were housed during the 
three-day minicamp. "Everybody was scouring," coach Jim Zorn 
said after the practice. "Nobody heard from him, so there was 
one of two scenarios: either there was some real trouble and 
we needed to find him, or he screwed up. I haven't even got to 
talk to him yet. I know he has been found. I believe it is more 
in the 'I screwed up' category." Davis eventually arrived at 
Redskins Park and met with Zorn in his office. "He just had a 
setback," the coach said. "Hopefully everybody will learn from 
the lesson that he is having to learn right now about what it 
is going to take to get to a place on time, to be responsible."
Davis was the 48th overall pick out of Southern California in 
last weekend's draft.

Broncos promote Goodman to VP of operations/personnel, hire Xanders

The Denver Broncos have named Jim Goodman vice president of 
football operations/player personnel and hired former Atlanta 
Falcons executive Brian Xanders as assistant general manager.
Xanders spent the last 14 seasons in Atlanta. He's in charge of 
the Broncos' salary cap and will assist in personnel matters.
Goodman served as Denver's director of player personnel for the 
last two years and has worked in the club's player personnel
department for the last decade. He'll oversee the day-to-day 
football operations and continue to run the Broncos' scouting 
department. Xanders will work with assistant GM Jeff Goodman, who 
oversees pro personnel and handles contract negotiations.
The Goodmans had their duties expanded after coach Mike Shanahan 
fired general manager Ted Sundquist this spring. The Goodmans 
and Xanders all report to Shanahan. The Broncos also named Anthony 
Kelly as assistant coordinator of pro and college scouting.

Redskins WR Randle El has knee surgery

Washington Redskins receiver Antwaan Randle El had arthroscopic 
knee surgery Tuesday and is expected to recover in time for 
training camp. Coach Jim Zorn said an MRI discovered a "floating
body" that was causing an irritation in Randle El's knee. "When 
they went in, whatever they found they will fix, and we will get 
him back going," Zorn said. Zorn gave a preliminary estimate of 
a recovery time of three to four weeks, which means Randle El 
could be back on the field for offseason practices in June. 
Training camp begins in mid- to late-July. Also Tuesday, safety 
Reed Doughty again missed practice to attend to his son, Micah, 
who recently underwent a kidney transplant. Micah came down with 
a virus over the weekend and his fever spiked at 105.8 degrees.
Doughty missed the final day of minicamp on Sunday to be with 
his son but was back on the field for Monday's offseason 
practice before being absent again Tuesday. "Reed had to go to 
the hospital again to make sure he is taking care of his child," 
Zorn said. Defensive tackle Kedric Golston also did not practice 
Tuesday. He sprained his right ankle during Saturday's minicamp 
practice. "His ankle is still swollen, so he can't run," Zorn 
said. "No use in getting him out here running around." The 
Redskins also made several minor roster moves, signing quarterback 
Derek Devine and safety Patrick Ghee. They released defensive 
end Alonzo Dotson, quarterback Bret Meyer, safety Kevin Mitchell 
and safety Justin Scott. Devine and Ghee were both undrafted 
free agent rookies in training camp with Zorn's old team, the 
Seattle Seahawks, last year. Neither made the Seahawks' final
