The size has always been there. A Pro Bowl selection could follow someday if left offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie of the Minnesota Vikings continues his development. At least that's how he feels. And at his size - 6-foot-8, 343 pounds - who is going to argue? McKinnie would like to continue his development Monday night against the team he grew up following as a youngster. The Vikings will face the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field, which is about a 20-minute ride from Woodbury High.

Owner Red McCombs says that the Minnesota Vikings will not trade first-round pick Bryant McKinnie, who has yet to sign a contract with the team. McKinnie, an offensive tackle from the University of Miami, was the seventh selection overall in April's NFL draft. The graduate of Woodbury High in Gloucester County is the only unsigned first-round pick. "I want to make it clear that the Vikings have absolutely no interest in trading Bryant McKinnie at any time," McCombs said Friday.

The NFL got its chance to see Matt Ryan throw yesterday, and the Boston College quarterback, of Penn Charter, didn't do anything that would keep him from being picked early in the draft. Perhaps even first overall. Ryan worked out at BC's biggest Pro Day ever, throwing to former teammates for a mini-combine of 42 scouts and other personnel evaluators from 22 NFL teams. He completed 48 of 52 passes - three drops, one overthrown - from three-, five- and seven step drops, from the pocket and on the run, throwing to both sides of the field.

Minnesota Vikings players have encouraged teammates to boycott a local TV station in response to a Thursday report related to the infamous boat party.

Denver Broncos strong safety Kenoy Kennedy was suspended by the NFL for one game without pay yesterday for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Miami receiver Chris Chambers. He will miss Denver's game Sunday at Kansas City, but will not be fined. Chambers got a concussion when he went up high for a pass from Jay Fiedler and was hit in the face by Kennedy in the second quarter of Miami's 24-22 victory on Sunday night. Chambers' head twisted after the hit, and he lay on the field for about 5 minutes before being helped off the field.

Feb. 1 was just another Wednesday for Manny Cortez and Amar Williams. They had school at Pennsauken High. They hung around the gymnasium and the coaches' offices after classes. They went home. But it was what didn't happen that day that struck a deep chord with the stars of Pennsauken's South Jersey Group 4 championship football team: They didn't sign letters of intent to attend four-year colleges on scholarships. "I was very upset," said Cortez, who fashioned arguably the best statistical season ever by a New Jersey high school quarterback in 2011.

Anthony Averett tells his tale in tattoos. He has just two of them, for now, but each is a special statement - a reflection of his life, his personality, and his priorities. He got his first one on his left arm a little more than a year ago. It's a drawing of a rose with his mom's name, "Carmen," and what he says is an apt description of himself - "Momma's Boy. " Averett, a Woodbury High School junior, has committed to attend the University of Alabama on a football scholarship.

In an unusual move in today's social media climate, Lawrence Timmons didn't go to Facebook or Twitter to announce his new six-year contract with Pittsburgh, the way good friend LaMarr Woodley did after signing a similar deal with the Steelers earlier this month. "They said they wanted to keep it [low key]," Timmons said on Tuesday. "Once you pay a guy like that, I'm going to do what they say. " The new deal will pay Timmons $50 million if he sticks around until 2016, the kind of money that will make it difficult for him to remain one of the league's best-kept secrets.

Leslie Frazier insists he wasn't trying to send a message when he released left tackle Bryant McKinnie, a fixture on the Minnesota Vikings' offensive line for nine years, just two days into Frazier's first training camp as a head coach. But that was how the move was seen by the rest of the team. Frazier repeatedly declined to cite the specific reasons for McKinnie's departure, saying only that it had nothing to do with money and that the former Pro Bowler "wasn't the right fit" for the team any longer.

Bryant McKinnie spent 9 years as the mainstay on the Minnesota Vikings' offensive line, never really becoming the dominant force he was expected to be but still giving the team almost a decade of solid performances. When he showed up to training camp woefully out of shape after the summerlong lockout, the Vikings decided to cut ties the former No. 7 overall draft choice. "This decision, while not an easy one, is in the best interests of our football team as we move forward preparing for the season," coach Leslie Frazier said in a statement issued yesterday.
