NFL Notebook

Associated Press
The NFL notebook …
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. ó John Parker Wilson waited all weekend to throw a pass to Tony Gonzalez.
Finally, after Falcons coach Mike Smith dismissed the team on the last day of Wilson’s first NFL mini-camp, the former Alabama starting quarterback worked one-on-one with Gonzalez, the league’s career-leading tight end.
The drill Sunday afternoon was nearly over before it began. Wilson threw maybe four 10-yard passes on Gonzalez’s hitch patterns, but the 23-year-old accomplished his goal. As an undrafted rookie free agent, he’s just trying to get noticed.
“I feel really good,” Wilson said. “I’m just coming in here trying to learn as much as I can right now.”
COWBOYS CANOPY
DALLAS ó Cowboys special teams coach Joe DeCamillis has been released from a Dallas hospital eight days after his neck was broken when the roof of the team’s indoor practice facility collapsed during a storm.
Cowboys scouting assistant Rich Behm was paralyzed from the waist down when the roof was torn apart by strong winds from a severe thunderstorm during a rookie minicamp workout. Ten others were injured.
FORMER PANTHER
LAKE FOREST, Ill. ó Tight end Michael Gaines and the Chicago Bears agreed on a one-year contract.
Gaines was a seventh-round draft pick of Carolina in 2004 and has 79 catches for 810 yards and five touchdowns in his career with the Panthers, Buffalo Bills and Detroit Lions.
