Dallas Cowboys: Offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon won't be the only coach in Dallas who played under coach Bill Parcells as a player. Former Giants RB Dave Meggett is already slated to be a summer intern in training camp, working primarily with punt returners, and according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, former S Adrian White is expected to help with the secondary at training camp. White, who played with the Giants from 1987-91, is currently an assistant with NFL Europe's Rhein Fire.

Miami Dolphins: Now that Mike Shula is coaching the Crimson Tide, the team has decided not to hire a new quarterbacks coach, but rather to spread Shula's responsibilities around to other coaches already on the staff. The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports the majority of Shula's duties will be assumed by offensive coordinator Norv Turner, but several assistants will have expanded roles. Joel Collier (running backs) will stand on the sidelines during games to communicate with Dolphins quarterbacks and relay information to Turner, and Robert Ford (wide receivers) will spearhead sideline communication between his unit and the quarterbacks.

New York Giants: LB Brandon Short was accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend at a Chelsea nightclub last week, though no charges have been filed. According to the New York Daily News, Short had a lengthy meeting with GM Ernie Accorsi, who said Short made the team fully aware of all the events that occurred. Asked if Short would face disciplinary action from the Giants, Accorsi said, "I'm not going to say anything other than what I said."

New Orleans Saints: RT Victor Riley pleaded guilty Friday to assaulting his wife during a 2001 domestic disturbance, according to the Kansas City Star. Riley, who was with the Chiefs at the time, had reached a diversion agreement with county prosecutors. But after being charged last November with driving while intoxicated, Johnson County prosecutors moved to revoke the diversion agreement. Riley appeared in court last Friday and pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault for ramming his car into another car occupied by his wife and infant daughter. A district judge accepted the plea and found Riley guilty of the felony charge, and sentencing is scheduled for July 3. Riley, 28, will receive probation under terms of the plea agreement, but he will be required to serve two weeks of shock time in jail.

Tennessee Titans: GM Floyd Reese said he continues to exchange contract proposals with the agent for P Craig Hentrich and plans on having conversations with the agents for C Gennaro DiNapoli and backup QB Neil O'Donnell in the near future. The team has made no secret it would like to add a veteran safety to the roster. The agent for former Titans and Seahawks S Marcus Robertson called Reese again last week looking for a job. The problem is that the Titans are less than $1 million under the salary cap, and in order to make these moves, at least one player will likely have to be released after June 1. "That's one of the options, sure," Reese told the Nashville Tennessean. "Right now, the only way you get money is to redo contracts or release players. If we ended up signing everybody it would be nice to sign, we'll have to redo a contract or we'll have to do something."
