AROUND THE LEAGUE:

Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith fly to Florida to talk with rookies | NOLA.com
They will address NFLPA's rookie symposium Wednesday morning

Don’t expect the Raiders to bid on Michael Huff | ProFootballTalk
It's worth remembering that Warren Sapp's scathing criticism of safety Michael Huff comes from seeing the guy in practice in 2006-2007.  A lot has changed since then, with Huff playing his best ball in 2010.

Now that I've had a chance to get the rest of the IV sedative out of my system and otherwise recover from Tuesday's necessary evil (which wasn't nearly as evil as I thought it would be), I'm ready to articulate my interpretation of the latest round of labor talks.

Onus falls on owners to get deal done | ProFootballTalk
We painted earlier today a fairly rosy picture of the current status of the labor negotiations, based on the four straight days of talks with no players or owners present -- and the decision of the two key figures in the labor dispute to behave like old friends, not mortal enemies, via their trip to...
