Saturday Morning Links: May 25, 2013

Grant Halverson

What figures to be a fairly quiet weekend for the NFL as the country celebrates memorial day, here's a few links of interest to start your Saturday.

+ A good read about Leon Hall, his selflessness and humbleness, especially when comparing him to the best cornerbacks in the NFL.

+ Former Bengals wide receiver Glenn Holt is hosting the Highest Level Football Camp at Prestonsburg High School in Kentucky. Holt was a coaching assistant for the Cincinnati Bengals during the team's mandatory minicamp last year.

+ Michael Vick declares himself the fastest quarterback in the NFL.

"These guys are young and they’re fast and they’re quick, the thing I do have is a very quick get-up," Vick said. "I really don’t feel like there’s a quarterback in the league who can beat me in a 40-yard dash. If somebody wants to set something up, I’ll be more than glad to accept the challenge. But as of right now I’m going to say me. But Colin Kaepernick is fast and RG3 is fast as well."

Does anyone actually care? Do you care?

+ Pat Kirwin looks at active players around the NFL that are locks (or nearly locks) for Canton. No Bengals, but that's expected for a team this young. Chad Johnson might have an argument, but despite a great career in Cincinnati, it's not a very strong argument at all.

+ Fromer Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young could be facing 11 charges after being arrested four times since early May. Young's approach to his hearing on Friday?

In court Friday, Young, appearing inside a protective cage wearing inmate orange, was addressed by the judge.

"Good morning, sir."

No reply.

"Can you hear me?"

No reply.

"Are you Titus Demetrius Young?"

No reply.

+ St. Louis Rams rookie, undrafted free agent Terrell Brown, tipped the scales at 403 pounds during OTAs this week.

+ The Arizona Cardinals signed Tyrann Mathieu, their third-round pick from the 2013 NFL draft, on Thursday with a signing bonus $400,000 less than slotted. That can be earned through bonuses but Mathieu entering the league's drug testing program means he'll be subject to as many as ten tests per month.
