The Mondays: Back in Business

Happy Monday to everyone out there in happy land!

Report: Titans and Cowboys close to trade with Pacman- Adam Schefter of the NFL Network has reported that the trade talks between Dallas and Tennessee are back on again. Schefter has reported from a source that the two sides are "considerably closer" to making a trade that would send suspended Titans cornerback to Dallas.

The deal could go down as early as Tuesday, which is expected to be the time that Jones applies for reinstatement into the NFL. It's too soon to tell if this trade will be good for the Cowboys, considering that Jones hasn't played since the 2006 season. This would be a good second chance for Jones-

Shockey staying put in New York- Despite numerous rumors about the Giants possibly trading tight end Jeremy Shockey, the former U player seems to be staying put for now. Shockey is currently at home in Miami working out for the upcoming season. This is nothing new for Shockey, as he has done this every year since he's been in New York.

The Giants don't expect to see Shockey until some time in June when mini-camp starts. Unless things take a turn for the worse between Shockey and the organization, expect the tight end to be in mini-camp- New York Post

Naming rights for Cowboys new stadium still up in the air, The Oh No Romo Stadium still has hope- The Cowboys are talking with a few major companies in regards to the new stadium opening up in 2009 in Arlington. The leading candidate right now is AT&T, who is currently the official sponsor for the Cotton Bowl. Expect this deal to be huge!- Dallas Morning News

Giordano stays in Indianapolis- On Saturday, the Colts re-signed restricted free agent safety Matt Giordano to a one-year deal. Details weren't released as to how much the contract was worth. In 12 games last season, Giordano had 15 tackles and two interceptions, one of them an 83-yarder for a touchdown- Indianapolis Star

Sticking with the trend, Wilson stays in Detroit- The Lions re-signed restricted free agent cornerback Stanley Wilson to a one-year contract. Terms of the contract were not released. Wilson had 29 tackles in ten games for the 2007 season.

The Lions also signed punter Paul Ernster to a one-year contract and released cornerback Patrick Body- Detroit Free Press
