Coughlin: No plans of retiring


Tom Coughlin

INDIANAPOLIS — Tom Coughlin isn't sure where Terrell Thomas got his information, but the Giants coach says there's nothing to Thomas' suggestion that this might be Coughlin's last season.

Thomas suggested Monday in an interview on the NFL Network that Coughlin might call it quits after the 2013 season, especially if the Giants win Super Bowl XLVIII next February at MetLife Stadium, the team's home.

"I think he has one more (season) in him," the defensive back said. "I think he wants to go out on top. Hopefully, we can get it right and bring a Super Bowl home in (MetLife) Stadium."

But Coughlin, 66, said at the scouting combine on Friday that he has no plans to retire. He has two years left on his contract.

Falcons to cut Turner? The Falcons are likely going to release 31-year-old running back Michael Turner, who is due $6.9 million next season, reported.

Ravens center retires: Veteran center Matt Birk announced his retirement after 15 seasons, the past four with the Ravens. "To cap it with a Super Bowl win, that's a great thing," said Birk, 36. He spent his first 11 seasons with the Vikings and was picked for the Pro Bowl six times.

RG3 progress: Famed orthopedic surgeon James Andrews, who also works with the Redskins, said quarterback Robert Griffin III is "way ahead of schedule" in his recovery from the reconstruction of his right knee in January, he told the NFL Network.

Shula honor: Former Dolphins coach Don Shula, the career victories leader, will be given the Lamar Hunt Award March 2 in Kansas City for his contributions to football.

Titans: The team agreed to terms with former Bills safety George Wilson.
