Browns WR Jurevicus has second knee surgery

Browns wide receiver Joe Jurevicius had his second knee surgery 
since January on Monday, a procedure that could prevent him from 
reporting to training camp on time. Jurevicius had swelling and 
discomfort in his knee related to his first operation, and the 
club said in a statement released Tuesday that he had a further 
"clean out" on Monday to help him recover. The team said no 
determination has been made on Jurevicius' status for training 
camp, which opens July 23. The 33-year-old had 50 catches for 
614 yards and three touchdowns last season. Following his first 
surgery, Jurevicius contracted a staph infection, the sixth 
Browns player in four years to get such an infection. Jurevicius 
has two years remaining on a four-year contract he signed in 2006. 
The 10-year veteran, who has also played for the New York Giants, 
Tampa Bay and Seattle, returned to Cleveland to play for the team 
he grew up idolizing. He attended Lake Catholic High School in 
Mentor, Ohio.

Bills sign OL Bell; release rookie Army FB Viti

Offensive lineman Demetrius Bell, the first of the Bills' three 
seventh-round picks and estranged son of former NBA star Karl 
Malone, signed with Buffalo on Tuesday. Selected 219th overall 
out of Louisiana's Northwestern State in the draft in April, Bell 
started 22 consecutive games over his final two college seasons. 
He is considered a work-in-progress with the Bills after he got a 
late start in football. The Bills also announced they have 
released rookie fullback Mike Viti, who signed with the team as 
an undrafted free agent out of Army in April. Bell, listed at 
6-foot-5 and 303 pounds, first played basketball at Northwestern 
before switching to football in August 2005. The Bills drafted 
him on the belief that Bell can gradually develop at the NFL 
level. Bell has had very little contact with his father and 
was raised by his mother, Gloria Williams. Malone was a teenager 
when Bell was born. Bell was 18 when he first contacted his 
father, but Malone rebuffed his son's attempt to reach out to 
him. Bell is the fourth of Buffalo's 10 draft picks to sign 
with the team before the start of training camp on July 25.

Judge declares mistrial for former Bengal WR

A judge has declared a mistrial in the assault case of former 
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry. An eight-person 
jury in Cincinnati told the judge Tuesday they were unable to 
agree on a verdict. Hamilton County Municipal Judge Richard 
Bernat then dismissed the jury and set a hearing for July 8.
Eighteen-year-old Gregory Meyer accused Henry of punching him 
in the face in March. The 25-year-old Henry said he was acting 
in self-defense. The judge earlier dismissed a criminal 
damaging charge that alleged Henry had broken Meyer's car 
window with a beer bottle in the altercation. The Bengals 
released Henry on April 3 after his fifth arrest since 2005, 
and last month he was suspended indefinitely by the NFL.

Bears sign Harrison, agree to deals with 2 others

The Chicago Bears signed defensive tackle Marcus Harrison to 
a four-year contract Tuesday and agreed to four-year deals with 
wide receiver Earl Bennett and cornerback Zack Bowman. Chicago 
has now signed or agreed to terms with a league-high 10 of its 
12 picks, first-round pick Chris Williams and second-round 
selection Matt Forte being the exceptions. Harrison, taken in 
the third round with the 90th overall pick, finished with 186 
tackles - 110 solo - and four sacks while breaking up 12 passes 
in four years at Arkansas. Third-round pick Bennett, taken 
70th, caught an SEC record 236 passes for 2,852 yards in 
three seasons at Vanderbilt. Bowman, a fifth-rounder, had 56 
tackles and three interceptions in 22 games with Nebraska after
starting his collegiate career at New Mexico Military Institute.
Chicago had already signed or agreed to terms with fourth-round 
choice Craig Steltz, fifth-round selection Kellen Davis, and 
seventh-round picks Ervin Baldwin, Chester Adams, Joey LaRocque, 
Kirk Barton and Marcus Monk.

Titans sign RT David Stewart

The Tennessee Titans signed starting right tackle David Stewart 
to a multiyear contract extension Monday. Stewart has started 
30 games at tackle during his three-year career, including all 
16 games last season. Contract details were not released. He had 
signed a one-year tender earlier this offseason as a restricted 
free agent. Stewart is the Titans' second starting offensive 
lineman to sign since April. Left tackle Michael Roos agreed to 
a multiyear deal earlier.

Jaguars' Spicer gets contract extension

Defensive end Paul Spicer signed a two-year, $8 million contract 
extension with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Friday, giving him a 
chance to end his career with the team. Spicer, who led the 
Jaguars with 7 1/2 sacks last season, skipped Jacksonville's 
first eight voluntary workouts last month in hopes of getting a 
new deal. Agent Drew Rosenhaus said both sides made some 
concessions to get it worked out. "Paul never really wanted to 
go anywhere," Rosenhaus said. "This affords him the opportunity 
to finish his career as a Jaguar, which is very important."
Spicer was in the final year of a contract that would have paid 
him about $2.5 million this season. Although he'd played 46 games 
the past three years, recording 165 tackles and 18 sacks and 
emerging as one of the defense's most dependable starters, 
Spicer seemingly had little leverage because he will turn 33 
this summer. The Jaguars used their top two draft picks on 
defensive ends Derrick Harvey (first round) and Quentin Groves 
(second). But Spicer arrived at organized team activities in 
good shape and immediately accepted a tutoring role to Harvey 
and Groves - proving he could be an asset to a team that 
believes it has closed the gap on AFC powers New England and 
Indianapolis and is capable of making a run at the Super Bowl 
this season.

RB Kevin Jones workout witnessed by 4 NFL teams

Kevin Jones went through a workout Saturday while four NFL 
teams watched the running back sprint and cut just five months 
after he had major knee surgery. Dr. D.S. Ping, who has been 
helping Jones rehabilitate his right knee, said Miami, Green 
Bay, Pittsburgh and Detroit sent representatives to the workout 
in Saline, Mich. The Lions cut their former first-round pick 
in March with one year left on his contract after he hurt the 
knee late last season, adding to the injury woes that have 
stunted his success in the league. The Cleveland Browns also 
called, Ping said, and asked for a video of the workout.
Jones did a shuttle run on wet grass in 4.3 seconds, ran 
around cones and caught passes. "All the teams basically 
said they were amazed by what Kevin can do," Ping said.
Jones missed the first two games last season recovering from 
a foot injury that also sidelined him for the last three games 
of 2006. He ran for at least 70 yards in five games, including 
a season-high 105, before hurting his knee Dec. 23 against the 
Chiefs. A few months later, the Lions released him. The franchise 
was interested enough, though, to send director of pro personnel 
Sheldon White about 45 minutes west of Detroit to witness the 
workout. "Sheldon said what impressed him was Kevin's burst 
after standing still," Ping recalled. "He also liked how Kevin 
picked himself up and finished a drill when he slipped on the 
grass that was really slick because of a lot of rain."
Ron Hughes, the Steelers' college scouting coordinator, was 
also impressed. "Ron told me he thought Kevin ran really 
well," Ping said. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery 
on Jones' right knee in January and told him it would take 
up to 10 months to get back on the field. Jones, though, 
expects to go through non-contact drills during training 
camp with the team that signs him.  "I honestly feel like 
I'm ready to play right now," Jones insisted earlier this 
month. Jones has said several other teams have also shown 
interest. He's vying for a job along with free agent running 
backs such as Shaun Alexander, Chris Henry, Ron Dayne and 
Cedric Benson. He ran for 3,000-plus yards in four seasons 
in Detroit, including 1,133 yards as a rookie in 2004.
