Quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, placed on waivers by the Buffalo Bills on Monday, is heading to Seattle in the next day or two to possibly sign a contract with the team, two sources said.

Kenechi Udeze offers no other complaints as he approaches the five-year anniversary of the transplant. He's still in football and, as of this week, back with the team that drafted him, beginning a Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship with the Minnesota Vikings.

He spent three seasons as an assistant strength and coach at the University of Washington under Steve Sarkisian, who was an assistant at the University of Southern California when Udeze starred there from 2001 to '03. Last year, Udeze returned to the NFL as a coaching intern working with the Seattle Seahawks' defensive line under another former USC coach, Pete Carroll. He spent "my most influential year" there, staying with the team through January's Senior Bowl, and decided he'd found his calling.

Udeze: "I feel great. The only thing I've got to worry about is my feet giving me an issue, and that's it. So, I really lucked out throughout the whole thing. Yeah, I lost my career. But I'm still alive and I'm still here. Coaching is a passion of mine and something that I definitely want to do for a very long time."

Frazier: “I remember visiting him in the hospital and seeing what he was going through. And every time I see him, I’m just amazed. It’s almost like seeing a walking miracle. Because at that time, when I was visiting him at the hospital, it was a concern about whether or not he’d survive much longer.”

The Minnesota Court of Appeals on Monday upheld the conviction of the wife of a former Minnesota Viking in a fatal hit-and-run accident, denying her bid to overturn the verdict on multiple grounds. The three-judge panel ruled there was sufficient evidence to convict Amy Senser, the wife of former Minnesota Viking Joe Senser.

Senser is less than a year into a 41-month prison sentence in the death of Anousone Phanthavong. He was struck on a Minneapolis freeway exit ramp as he was refilling the gas tank of a stalled vehicle. Senser maintains she didn't know she had struck a person but thought it was a construction cone instead.

Cris Carter, the receiver who was voted into the Hall of Fame this year, said today on ESPN that Cincinnati's Mike Brown has told him that the Bengals decided not to draft Carter because they were worried that he wouldn’t be able to stay out of trouble off the field.

Carter: “Coming out of college from Ohio State, I was a first-team All-American. Mike Brown, I’ve talked to him in the last several years. He took me off their list, too. He said he regretted it because I was a local talent and he wished they hadn’t, but he told me, ‘Cris, I took you off our board based on the information we had.’”

Carter was a great player at Ohio State, but he had a drug problem, and he was also banned by the NCAA for hiring an agent before his senior season. The Eagles took Carter with a fourth-round pick in the 1987 supplemental draft — a bargain considering his talent, but a risk considering his off-field issues — and although he played fairly well in his three seasons in Philadelphia, Eagles coach Buddy Ryan ultimately decided Carter’s drug problem was too much to deal with, and Carter was cut.

Former NFL quarterback Daunte Culpepper is apparently down to one house, after a South Florida home he bought was surrendered in a foreclosure case.

According to the Associated Press, Culpepper bought the 9,867-square foot home in 2006 for about $3.6 million. He owns another home nearby, but more than $3 million is still owed on the home which was turned over to SunTrust Bank in April. The bank dropped a lawsuit against him earlier this month.

Matt Birk played 10 seasons for the Vikings, six as a Pro Bowl center. He then left his hometown team to sign with the Baltimore Ravens, for which he won a Super Bowl championship last season before retiring.

The Vikings respect the St. Paul native so much that they have asked him to address the team when training camp begins this week in Mankato, Minn. Birk will share his NFL experiences, including the Super Bowl victory over San Francisco, with Vikings players.

Don't be surprised if Birk, 36, a Cretin-Derham Hall and Harvard grad, accepts an offer to advise NFL players regarding potential disciplinary action by the league for on-field offenses, such as fines for late hits. As for other post-playing career options, Birk, as expected after recent auditions, has analyst offers from ESPN and the NFL Network.

Has he received no offer from The Weather Channel, to explain how lightning is formed and discharges from a water vapor cloud?

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Harvin's hip injury could result in surgery. As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has reported (and as PFT has confirmed), Harvin has a “slight tear” in the labrum. We’re told that the injury was spotted in an MRI performed on Thursday.

The team wants Harvin to try to practice and play with the injury (along with non-surgical treatment, of course). Harvin intends to exercise his right to a second opinion, and arrangements currently are being made for Harvin to be evaluated by a top expert in the field. Depending on the second opinion, Harvin may ultimately have surgery.

A little more than a month ago, Ravens coach John Harbaugh praised Bryant McKinnie’s conditioning and said that presumptive left tackle on Baltimore’s offensive line was in his best shape in years.

Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that coach John Harbaugh said that McKinnie “is too heavy right now” and the team didn’t feel comfortable having him out on the practice field.

Someone who knows a lot more about this than I said Harvin would miss about 12 weeks if he has surgery for a torn labrum. Back by midseason.
