With his return to Arizona, Todd Heap's football career has come full circle.
The off-field frenzy has not let up for the Arizona Cardinals.
Don't be fooled by all those deep cuts on NFL rosters, with veterans such as Todd Heap, Roy Williams and John Kasay being released. Some of the dozens of players being shown the door might step right back through it _ for less money _ very soon.
As the Baltimore Ravens welcomed back several players to their training complex, the main topic of conversation centered around the pending departure of four prominent players.Running back Willis McGahee, former Pro Bowl tight end Todd Heap, wide receiver Derrick Mason and nose guard Kelly Gregg have been told they will but cut, coach John Harbaugh confirmed Tuesday.
The free agency free-for-all has begun, mostly with obscure names from the college ranks. It will get wilder. Contract negotiations for free agents and draft picks started Tuesday, with draftees able to sign right away. The big names among veterans _ Nnamdi Asomugha, Santonio Holmes, Matt Hasselbeck _ can't sign until Thursday, but their agents are negotiating deals right now.
Ben Roethlisberger threw a 9-yard touchdown pass to Isaac Redman with 2:51 left after Troy Polamalu forced a fumble with a sack of Joe Flacco, and the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Baltimore Ravens 13-10 on Sunday night to gain sole possession of first place in the AFC North.

"I feel really good physically. My body feels good generally," he said. "I'm in a good place right now. I'm excited."
