FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Miami and Florida State are at it again.

Former Hurricanes tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. and former FSU defensive back Antonio Cromartie might need more than 140 characters to settle this Twitter squabble.

Winslow took exception to Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie putting teammate Dee Milliner on the spot during an interview Tuesday when he asked if Milliner thought he was "on the roster bubble."

Milliner, being a good sport, answered the question posed by Cromartie, who recently took part in the NFL's four-day broadcasting boot camp and was repeating speculation by fans and media. Milliner doesn't appear to be in jeopardy of losing his job.

In a series of tweets, Winslow, who played with Cromartie and the Jets in 2013, called Cromartie "one of the biggest posers I have ever seen and played against."

Winslow told Cromartie to worry about himself: "Your (sic) not even close to the best. You got bad feet and are scared to jam. … Anybody who talks to their teammates like that … Can't respect em."

Cromartie responded with a Twitter jab. "You wish you were as good as your dad," he wrote, referring to Hall of Famer Kellen Winslow. "Have you been to TARGET lately?"

Winslow was arrested in New Jersey in a Target parking lot and charged with possession of synthetic marijuana. The case was dropped.

Winslow then tweeted that he and Cromartie should "get in the ring," and he would "whoop" him. And Winslow offered a parting shot: "just know I'm ready for you. (hash)Poser."

Bucs rookie to sign

TAMPA — The Bucs agreed to terms with guard Ali Marpet, bringing the last of the team's seven draft picks in the fold.

Marpet, the second of the team's two second-round draft picks, is competing to be the starting right guard. He's expected to officially sign today.

The Bucs have their final OTA session today and will have a three-day mandatory minicamp next week, then break until preseason camp, likely July 31.

Bills: Guard Chris Williams is still recuperating from back surgery, and it's uncertain whether he'll be cleared for training camp next month.

Chargers: The No. 21 of LaDanian Tomlinson will be retired and the former running back will become the 38th member of the team's Hall of Fame during a Nov. 22 game against the Chiefs. Other retired numbers: Lance Alworth (19), Dan Fouts (14) and Junior Seau (55).

Dolphins: Running back Knowshown Moreno reportedly will miss this season because of a knee injury that sidelined him after three games last year. Also, free agent defensive tackle C.J. Mosley signed a one-year deal.

Patriots: Cornerback Malcolm Butler, who made the clinching interception in the Super Bowl, was reportedly suspended for three weeks of practices after he missed a flight and was late to a workout May 18.
