Browns president Mike Holmgren says there are no plans "right now" to move either quarterback Colt McCoy or Seneca Wallace before training camp.
One of the two QBs will be rookie Brandon Weeden's backup. Weeden is expected to start this season after the Browns drafted the 28-year-old out of Oklahoma State in the first round. Earlier this week, Wallace said he didn't think all three quarterbacks would be on the roster. Holmgren said plans could change but he could envision all three quarterbacks staying.
CVC, Rams heading for arbitration over dome lease: The St. Louis Rams and the St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission are heading to arbitration over what to do about the Edward Jones Dome.
The board that oversees the CVC voted Thursday to begin the arbitration process after the two sides remained far apart on plans to upgrade the dome. The CVC operates the dome and leases it to the NFL team.
The binding arbitration could last through the end of the year.
The 30-year lease signed when the Rams moved to St. Louis from Los Angeles prior to the 1995 season requires that the stadium be among the top quarter of NFL stadiums in 15 separate categories. If it isn't, the team can break the lease after the 2014 season.
Chiefs' defense ends offseason program in style: The Kansas City Chiefs' defense will carry bragging rights into next months' training camp.
During a mock 2-minute drill to finish up their mandatory three-day minicamp Thursday, the defense stuffed the Kansas City offense, forcing a long field goal that kicker Ryan Succop missed wide left. The defense then turned around and stuffed the backup offense.
Coach Romeo Crennel said he was encouraged by the amount of progress Kansas City has made the past few weeks, particularly in learning a new offensive system.
