Denver Pro Bowl running back Clinton Portis said a trade to Washington would be "a great opportunity," though he's still not sure the deal will happen. The Redskins and Broncos have agreed in principle to a trade that would send Portis to Washington in exchange for Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey. The Redskins would also throw in a second-round draft pick to get the third-year running back, who rushed for 1,591 yards last season. "I don't know what's going on," Portis said yesterday at a charity event held by Indianapolis running back, and former University of Miami standout, Edgerrin James.

Thumbs Up To Jets linebacker Bart Scott, who is, in my mind, one of the best interviews in sports. Intelligent, funny, honest, he's the whole package. Asked the other day about the confident attitude that he and head coach Rex Ryan have brought to the Jets, he said, "I think we're no more confident than any other team. I just think the only difference is we tell you [media] guys that and the rest of the people lie to you. " Thumbs Up To Vikings quarterback Brett Favre, whose Monday night performance against his old team, the Packers, more than lived up to the game's hype.

The Denver Broncos are discussing a trade that would send running back Clinton Portis to Washington for cornerback Champ Bailey, a swap of two Pro Bowlers upset with their contracts, a source said yesterday. In giving up Portis for Bailey, Denver also would receive Washington's second-round selection in the April draft, the NFL source told the Associated Press. The deal would make sense because the Redskins went last season without an every-down running back, a must in the offensive system favored by new coach Joe Gibbs.

Terrell Owens' last touchdown with the Eagles came against the Denver Broncos. His next touchdown could well be for those same Broncos. Multiple league sources said last night that Owens and his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, were in Denver discussing a potential deal with Broncos head coach Mike Shanahan and owner Pat Bowlen. The Eagles gave Rosenhaus permission to work out a trade for Owens earlier this month, and Shanahan has let it be known that he is interested in the receiver, although Bowlen apparently was not as keen on the idea.

One of the Denver Broncos' key defensive players on Sunday will be a familiar face to Eagles fans: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Rodgers-Cromartie spent two disappointing seasons in Philadelphia, where he tantalized with his size and speed but was inconsistent playing on an underachieving defense. The Eagles did not re-sign Rodgers-Cromartie this offseason. He signed with the Broncos, and he has impressed the coaching staff through three games. He has started each game this season and has an interception.

Big-hitting safety John Lynch's crunching collisions are over. Lynch, 37, has decided to retire, officially ending his career with a news conference Monday in Tampa, Fla. He was a nine-time Pro Bowler for Denver and Tampa Bay, finishing with 1,277 tackles, 100 pass breakups and 26 interceptions in 224 regular-season games. He departed Denver on good terms in July after being bumped from his starting role and signed with the Patriots. He was cut 2 weeks later and has been out of football since.

Champ Bailey knocked away the potential tying touchdown pass from Tony Romo to Sam Hurd with 1 second left yesterday and host Denver escaped with a 17-10 win over Dallas. On fourth-and-goal from the 2, Romo dropped back and found Hurd cutting over the middle, but Bailey reached around and swatted the pass away at the last second, giving the Broncos their first 4-0 start since 2003. The Broncos took the lead on Brandon Marshall's 51-yard touchdown catch with 1:46 remaining.

The Washington Redskins made some big moves yesterday, and they're considering making more. In an effort to get under the new $80.6 million salary cap imposed by the league yesterday, the Redskins cut four players including defensive end Bruce Smith, the NFL's career sack leader with 200, and five-time Pro Bowl linebacker Jessie Armstead. Washington is also pondering several trade possibilities for four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey in addition to the much ballyhooed proposal to send him to Denver for Clinton Portis.

On a day other teams were figuring out ways to cut costs to get under the salary cap, the Washington Redskins - as usual - were spending money. The Redskins agreed yesterday to a $50.5 million, 8-year deal with running back Clinton Portis, all but completing the trade that will send four-time Pro Bowl cornerback Champ Bailey and a second-round draft choice to Denver. But that can't become official until tomorrow, the start of the free-agent season. Bailey still was working on a contract with the Broncos, but the sides appeared close.

NEWARK, N.J. - When Tony Carter first met Brian Dawkins as a Broncos teammate, he was too timid to remind him that they had met years before. Carter was an undrafted rookie cornerback and Dawkins had just signed a free-agent contract after 13 seasons with the Eagles. But they had met years prior in Jacksonville - their native city - when Carter was still in high school and Dawkins was his hero. "I was probably too embarrassed to say that. But he knew who I was," Carter said. "And soon as we met each other he said, 'Duval County!

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie may retire from football if the Denver Broncos win Sunday's Super Bowl. In Philadelphia, Eagles fans are joking, "Didn't he retire two years ago?" But the former Eagles cornerback wasn't kidding about calling it quits even though he's coming off arguably the best season of his career, is still only 27 years old and will likely have multiple suitors when he hits free agency in March. "Coming out of college I gave myself a five-year goal," Rodgers-Cromartie said Monday.

DENVER - Not this time, Tim Tebow. Not with Tom Brady on hand. Brady threw for two touchdowns, ran for another and the New England Patriots shut down Tebow's late-game heroics and clinched a playoff berth with a 41-23 victory over the Broncos yesterday. "It was a really good day for us," Brady said. "Very emotional game. It was really rocking early. We showed some mental toughness. " The Patriots (11-3) won their sixth straight game and another AFC East title by bouncing back from an early 17-6 deficit and an awful first quarter in which they were outgained on the ground, 167 yards to 4. This time, there was no last-minute magic from Tebow, who had guided the Broncos (8-6)

DENVER - Wild wins are becoming routine for Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos, who flail away through most of four quarters before coming through in the clutch. Matt Prater's 51-yard field goal 6 1/2 minutes into overtime gave the Broncos a 13-10 victory over the stunned Chicago Bears yesterday. Prater's 59-yarder with 3 seconds left in regulation tied the score after Tebow led another rally. "If you believe," Tebow said, "then unbelievable things can sometimes be possible.

As soon as NFL teams report to training camp, the bad teams promise that things will be better and the good teams say there's always room for improvement. Story lines are anticipated. Then the season begins and what was supposed to happen doesn't. Instead, we have Aaron Rodgers, Matt Cassel, the Cardinals, and a referee "downgraded" after admitting he blew a call that may have cost the Chargers a win. The NFL slogan for this season should be, "You Never Know. " Which brings us to Week 3. Toeing the line The Packers averaged 36 points a game in their first two wins, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers is an unconscious 42 for 60 for 506 yards and four touchdowns.
