Baltimore Ravens

According to his agent, offensive tackle Bryant McKinnie wants to keep playing in Baltimore. "Bryant would want to come back," agent Michael George told The Baltimore Sun. "He likes it there. He likes the situation, the way it is now. He's a free agent, so it's up to the Ravens what happens next obviously. The intention is to see what the market says. If the Ravens want to do something, we're definitely open to that. Obviously, it has to be right numbers for both sides."

Cincinnati Bengals

As Mike Zimmer continues to be overlooked for head-coaching jobs, the Bengals' defensive coordinator keeps it all in perspective. "I try not to think about it any more," Zimmer told USA TODAY. "People say, 'This is your year. It's your time.' Then for about a week after the season, I see these other guys get jobs and I get depressed. So right now, I'm kind of, 'If it happens, it happens.'"
