NFL Notebook: Redskins eyeing Leftwich

Associated Press
The NFL notebook …
WASHINGTON ó The Washington Redskins Saturday confirmed a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette report that backup quarterback Byron Leftwich worked out Friday for the team at Redskins Park. Leftwich, a Washington native and longtime starter with Jacksonville, spent last season as a backup in Pittsburgh.
Leftwich, 29, is seen solely as a possible younger and cheaper replacement for veteran No. 2 quarterback Todd Collins, 37, according to the team. The Redskins informed Leftwich that he would not be competing with starter Jason Campbell, according to NFL sources, and made it clear that if signed he would play only if Campbell, 27, was injured or ineffective during a start.
VICK UPDATE
RICHMOND, Va. ó Michael Vick’s plan to emerge from bankruptcy simply didn’t add up.The uncertainty surrounding the aging, suspended NFL star’s return to pro football as well as vague book and film deals prompted a bankruptcy judge to reject Vick’s Chapter 11 plan and order a new one.
This time, the judge wants a proposal based on the stark reality facing Vick: He has about $210,000 but owes $1 million in fees from the bankruptcy case and about $3.7 million in legal bills ó some $13,700 a day since he filed for Chapter 11 protection in July.
Vick also faces at least $200,000 in annual living expenses if he keeps two Virginia homes and three vehicles. His only guaranteed income is a $10-an-hour construction job that will be part of his probation when he is moved from federal prison to home confinement in May.
BRONCOSENGLEWOOD, Colo. ó Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said in a letter to season ticket holders Saturday that the organization had no choice but to trade Jay Cutler over his insubordination.
Bowlen preached a message of team unity in the e-mail, reiterating that he and new coach Josh McDaniels had reached out many times to Cutler, who didn’t respond to their overtures.
RAMSST. LOUIS ó The St. Louis Rams signed Kyle Boller on Saturday to be the backup to starting quarterback Marc Bulger.
