NFL Jabber 5/23/07

 Justin Gage knows he didn't make a very good first impression as a Titan.

"Very sluggish, very slow,'' is how Gage described his early days as a Titan. "It was more trying to get the plays down and thinking more than reacting and playing.''

This could be the breakout year for Jags TE, Marcedes Lewis.

The Redskins are apologizing for the mouth of Clinton Portis.

"The Washington Redskins, as an organization, obviously would never condone anything related to animal cruelty," the team's statement said. "The team takes the recent comments of Clinton Portis very seriously and apologizes to everyone that was offended."

An Arizona killer left this world with the last words..."Go Raiders."

Drew Brees feels the Saints are in better shpae this year at WR than last.

"We have a great group of receivers," said Brees, who was in no way hindered by his recovery from a dislocated, non-throwing (left) elbow injury he sustained in the Pro Bowl on Feb. 9 in Honolulu. "You're already seeing where it's going to piece together. We've got so many good guys. I'm excited about our options. We knew what we could accomplish based on last year, but I feel we could get so much better.

"We've been throwing together for the last four weeks. We've been doing our quarterback/receiver/tight end/running back throwing sessions twice a week for the last four weeks. So we've had some of that time together. Obviously, that hasn't been with any defense. You get it to where it's second nature and guys know the route depths and they know when the ball is coming out of my hand. So when you get out there, forget that there's a defense there, we're just going to play catch."
