Cowboys want WR Glenn to sign injury settlement

Even on the day the Dallas Cowboys make Terrell Owens happy,
they're still facing drama surrounding a receiver. This time,
it's Terry Glenn. After a new conference announcing Owens'
contract extension, team owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that
Glenn failed a physical after the season and still hasn't
passed it because of problems with the right knee that was
operated on twice last season. Jones wants Glenn to agree to
accept a $500,000 injury settlement if he can't play this
season. His base salary is $1.74 million. "It would surprise
me if everything doesn't get worked out," Jones said. Glenn
played only in the regular season finale last season, but
didn't catch any passes. He had two catches in Dallas' only
playoff game. "I paid him $5 million last year and we got
four plays," Jones said.

Ex-Bengals player convicted on bad check charge

Former Cincinnati Bengals fullback Pete Johnson was found
guilty of writing a bad check to buy a pickup truck and faces
up to one year in prison and a fine of $2,500. He was
acquitted by a jury of a second charge of grand theft of
a motor vehicle. Johnson, 53, will be sentenced July 21.
Johnson testified that he thought he had sufficient funds in
the account to cover the $13,300 check. He paid the full
balance with a cashier's check last month, according to
testimony. He was indicted by a grand jury in December after
an auto dealer told police in Mechanicsburg that Johnson
bought a 2001 truck at auction in September and paid for
it with a bad check. Johnson played for Ohio State from
1973-1976 and with the Bengals until 1983.

Chargers sign veteran offensive lineman Newberry

Former Pro Bowl center Jeremy Newberry signed a one-year
contract with the San Diego Chargers on Monday, most likely
as insurance in case Nick Hardwick isn't ready for the start
of the season. Hardwick had surgery on his sprained right foot
on March 14. The team said at the time that he would need four
to six months to recover. Hardwick was hurt early in a game
against the Oakland Raiders on Oct. 14 and missed the next four
games. He played in the final six regular-season games and three
playoff games. He's played mostly at center, but also at guard
and tackle. Newberry started 14 games for the rival Oakland
Raiders last year. He was taken by San Francisco in the second
round of the 1998 draft and went to the Pro Bowl after the 2001
and 2002 seasons.

Bears sign safety Craig Steltz

The Chicago Bears on Monday signed fourth-round draft pick
Craig Steltz to a four-year contract. The safety started 20 of
44 games at LSU and had 184 tackles. He ranked fifth in school
history for passes defended (34) and sixth in interceptions (11).
Steltz is the seventh pick to sign, joining guard Chester Adams,
defensive end Ervin Baldwin, tackle Kirk Barton, tight end
Kellen Davis, linebacker Joey LaRocque and wide receiver
Marcus Monk. Five Bears draft picks remain unsigned, including
first-round offensive tackle Chris Williams.

Eagles replace VP Licht, extend GM Heckert

The Philadelphia Eagles extended the contract of general
manager Tom Heckert through 2011 on Friday and replaced vice
president of player personnel Jason Licht. Howie Roseman,
formerly its vice president of football administration, will
replace Licht, the team said. Heckert was named general manager
in 2006 after originally joining the team as the director of
player personnel in 2001. He spent 10 years in the Miami
Dolphins organization before coming to Philadelphia. "Tom's
leadership and work ethic has continued to impress me over
the years," said Eagles coach Andy Reid, who also serves as
the head of football operations. Eagles spokesman Derek Boyko
said the team had no comment on Licht's departure.
The team also announced the signing of fourth-round draft pick
Quintin Demps to a four-year contract on Friday.
Demps, a safety out of UTEP, had 17 interceptions in his
career. He picked off five passes last season, returning a
pair for touchdowns.

S Landry returns to Redskins offseason practices

Safety LaRon Landry rejoined the Washington Redskins for
offseason practices Tuesday, following his unexcused absence
the day before. "I was at home taking care of a lot of family
issues," the second-year safety said. "But I came back and I
am ready to work." Landry and veteran cornerback Shawn Springs
were the only non-injured players absent when the team
reassembled this week for two weeks of practices, the last
sessions before training camp begins next month.
Springs' absence isn't surprising, given that he prefers to
work out on his own during the offseason. Still, it doesn't
sit well with first-year coach Jim Zorn. "We are still
wondering where Shawn Springs is," Zorn said.
Defensive end Phillip Daniels was disappointed that his
teammate was a no-show for the practices, which are considered
voluntary under NFL guidelines. "There is nothing voluntary
about them," Daniels said. "Be here. In all my years I have
made every one of them, so there is no excuse not to make it.
We are putting in a lot of new material, and you have to stay
up with it."

Saints sign defensive back, lineman

The New Orleans Saints signed veteran cornerback Jerametrius
Butler and center Marquay Love on Tuesday, two days after the
free agents took part in the team's three-day minicamp on a
tryout basis. The Saints needed an additional defensive back
during minicamp because Mike McKenzie and Jason David, the
starting cornerbacks in 2007, were limited by injuries during
practice. McKenzie is recovering form reconstructive knee
surgery at the end of last season while David had a strained
groin. Butler, who is 5-foot-10, 181 pounds, has spent seven
seasons in the NFL, his first six with St. Louis before moving
to Buffalo last season. The former fifth-round draft choice
out of Kansas State has played in 71 regular season games,
starting 32. He has 218 tackles, nine interceptions, one
forced fumble and four fumble recoveries. He led the Rams in
interceptions in both 2003 and 2004, but missed all of 2005
with a knee injury. Butler also has played on special teams,
with 20 career tackles on kick coverage. Love, who played
defensive tackle during his college career at Houston, has
minimal NFL experience. The 6-foot, 307-pound lineman was
converted to a center after joining Miami as an undrafted
free agent last year but was waived at the end of training
