The Steelers, after last season’s emotional farewell to Hines Ward, are preparing to cut ties with another familiar face.

In Green Bay, Greg Jennings has put his family home up for sale.

Brian Urlacher might want to consider the same.

Alex Smith’s next home could be a New York penthouse.

Moving time in the NFL is fast approaching.

In Philadelphia, new coach Chip Kelly is reviewing film. Apparently he is trying to figure out if it’s worth $15.5 million to keep Michael Vick. That, or he could just enter Vick’s film at the Cannes Film Festival for best horror flick of the year.


Kelly’s options are to trade Vick, keep him at the same salary, ask him to take a pay cut or release him. But he might want to push the fast-forward button on that video for two reasons:

Vick is owed $3 million of that contract by Feb. 6.

And, if they decide to trade him, they need to do it before other teams dip into free agency or make other plans at quarterback.
