Derrick Mason says he has "come full circle. " Why? Because once Derrick's helmet had a derrick on it. Once, he was an Oiler. OK, not a Houston Oiler, but he played his first two seasons as a Tennessee Oiler before Bud Adams' peripatetic franchise cut its final ties to the town it called home for 37 years, changing both the name and uniform design. Wearing No. 82 - the number he has reclaimed as a Texan after 13 seasons spent as No. 85 - Mason was a rookie receiver/special-teamer for the Oilers cum Titans in 1997, the first autumn since 1959 that Houston was forced to amuse itself without pro football.

When the NFL realigned the National Football Conference after the 1970 merger, the owners could never agree on one plan.They finally narrowed the options down to five, put them in a bowl and had then-commissioner Pete Rozelle's secretary pick out the one the teams still use 29 years later.Except for the addition of Tampa Bay to the NFC Central in 1977 and Carolina to the NFC West in 1995, the NFC remains unchanged. The AFC remains unchanged except for the addition of Seattle to the AFC West and Jacksonville to the AFC Central.

The Bengals have been seeking insurance in case starter Carson Palmer is not ready for the start of the season. Palmer is coming off major knee surgery. The Ravens never showed interest this offseason in re-signing Wright, who was 2-5 as a starter for the Ravens last season when Kyle Boller went down with a toe injury.

CHICAGO -- Despite the wishful thinking of some expansion candidates, it is unlikely the NFL will add more than two franchises next month, league officials said yesterday.Owners of the league's 28 teams voted in 1991 to expand by two. The deadline has been pushed back several times, but an affirmation of the two-team format was passed again this spring.Despite that, there has been some speculation that the league may do what the NBA did when it expanded in 1987 -- surprise the contestants by taking four cities instead of the announced two.It dramatically would improve the odds of the five NFL finalists, including Baltimore.
