Former No. 28 pick OG Garnett on bubble in SF

20 June 2018

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows believes 2016 first-round OG Josh Garnett is the "most prominent player in danger of being cut" by the 49ers. He was the 28th overall pick in the 2016 draft and sat out all of last year following a knee scope and conditioning issues. The new regime doesn't seem to be a huge fan of Garnett, who was ex-coach Chip Kelly's final first-round selection in San Fran. Garnett is competing with veteran Mike Person and fellow former fi ...

Blake Jarwin was Cowboys' 'TE1' during spring

20 June 2018

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports second-year UDFA Blake Jarwin worked as Dallas' No. 1 tight end during OTAs and minicamp. According to Mosher, Rico Gathers "barely gets any snaps in practice." Gathers hasn't played a single snap since being drafted in 2016 but flashed big-time potential last preseason only for the Cowboys to ask him to bulk up and improve his blocking this year. It sounds like Jarwin is the preferred pass-catching option, with Gathers ...

Allen Hurns is Cowboys' 'clear-cut' No. 1 WR

20 June 2018

Cowboys reporter Marcus Mosher reports Allen Hurns was the team's "clear-cut" No. 1 receiver throughout spring practices. As expected. Hurns inked a two-year, $12 million pact after his release from Jacksonville, and the Cowboys then released Dez Bryant while failing to re-sign Brice Butler. It leaves Hurns as the default top wideout, followed by Cole Beasley, Terrance Williams, and rookie Michael Gallup in whichever order. In an offense that figures to lea ...

2016 1st-rounder Shaq Lawson on roster bubble

20 June 2018

ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak believes 2016 first-round DE Shaq Lawson is "competing for a rotational role, if not for his 53-man roster spot entirely" this summer. Rodak thinks the team could try and trade Lawson ahead of Week 1, especially once free agent pickup Trent Murphy (knee) is back to 100 percent opposite Jerry Hughes. Buffalo also has Eddie Yarbrough, Terrence Fede, and Owa Odighizuwa as rotational pieces. Lawson, the No. 19 overall pick by ex-co ...

Terrelle Pryor blames down '17 on ankle issue

19 June 2018

Terrelle Pryor blames his down 2017 on his ankle injury. Pryor, who made nine appearances for the Redskins before landing on injured reserve, said he tore his deltoid ligament in the Redskins' opener. The injury required surgery after his I.R. placement. "I couldn't focus on my game because I was worried about my foot," Pryor said. "It took control of my mind. Right now, I'm healthy and ready to get back to form and have a dominant year." Pryor actua ...

Texans view Coutee as 'upgrade' in the slot

19 June 2018

The Houston Chronicle reports the Texans view fourth-round Keke Coutee as an "upgrade" on Braxton Miller in the slot.

Hayden Hurst officially signs rookie contract

19 June 2018

Ravens signed No. 25 overall pick TE Hayden Hurst to a four-year contract. The deal includes a fifth-year team option for 2022. Hurst will be a 25-year-old rookie after spending two seasons in the Pittsburgh Pirates’ organization, then three in the SEC. Hurst tested as a 46th-percentile athlete with 4.67 speed before the draft. Hurst is raw and old for a prospect, but he offers a plus pass-catching skill set and willingness to block. Hurst should start right away, tho ...

45-year-old Vinatieri: No plans to retire

19 June 2018

45-year-old Colts K Adam Vinatieri says he has no plans to retire in the near future. "I love it as much today as I had when I started 23 years ago," Vinatieri said. "I’m not looking to hang them up anytime soon. ... I guess I’ll take these one year at a time and see where it ends up." Headed into his 23rd year in the league, Vinatieri remained an 85.3 percent field goal kicker last season and is approaching several league records. ...

Browns take flier on Greg Robinson

19 June 2018

Browns signed OT Greg Robinson. The former No. 2 overall pick made six starts with the Lions last season before an ankle injury sent him to injured reserve. Unsurprisingly, he was not great at either guard or tackle in Detroit, but it makes sense for Cleveland to see what Robinson can do. The Browns have a hole at left tackle, but it would be disappointing if Robinson won the job.

B. Mayfield 'not ready to compete' with Tyrod

18 June 2018

According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield "did not look ready to compete" with Tyrod Taylor for the Browns' starting quarterback job at OTAs and minicamp. The Boston Globe had a similar report on Sunday. The Plain Dealer doesn't detail where exactly Mayfield is so far behind, but Taylor is a three-year starter with a 22-20 record the past three seasons on poorly-assembled Bills teams. He should open training camp as the heavy ...

Ex-Saints CB Delvin Breaux headed to Canada

18 June 2018

Ex-Saints CB Delvin Breaux is signing with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats. Breaux could not get healthy enough for an NFL team after his devastating 2016 leg break. The Saints made a huge mistake during Breaux's recovery, misdiagnosing a stress fracture as a bruise. Neither side seemed interested in a reunion after that. Breaux has also had spine issues. This will be Breaux's second go-around in Hamilton. It's where he caught the Saints' attention in 2014. Going on 29, i ...

Ereck Flowers 'impressing' at right tackle

18 June 2018

NJ Advance Media's Matt Lombardo writes Ereck Flowers has been "impressing teammates and coaches at right tackle." Angry about being replaced at left tackle, Flowers skipped a large chunk of the offseason program, but he was back in the fold and working as the first-team right tackle by minicamp. Showing well at his new position, Flowers looks likely to open the season as a starter. Patrick Omameh should start next to Flowers at right guard with Jon Halapio at ...

Ebron was 'impressive' in offseason program

18 June 2018

Indy Star's Stephen Holder writes Eric Ebron "has been among the more impressive Colts" during the offseason program. Ebron has been used all over the formation by new coach Frank Reich. "He’s really smart," Reich said. "And that’s really good because you want to use a guy with the versatility that he has and move him around and call all kinds of things with him." Even with Jack Doyle atop the depth chart, Ebron should see his fair shar ...

McCarthy promises 'running back by committee'

18 June 2018

Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers will have a "running back by committee." "We feel like we've got three guys that have all done, but they haven't done it over a long period of time," McCarthy said, "so I think it's just practical thinking from that position and realizing that it's a very demanding position." McCarthy did leave open the possibility of one player emerging as the clear option, but it sounds like all of Jamaal Williams, Ty ...

Andrew Luck (shoulder) says 'pain is gone'

18 June 2018

Andrew Luck said the "pain" in his surgically-repaired shoulder is "gone." "And it’s going to stay that way," the quarterback added. "My body doesn’t revolt, in a sense, to new things I ask." Luck finally threw a football in front of reporters and cameras last week, and he seems much more confident about his health than he was at this time last year. MMQB's Albert Breer reports the Colts will limit Luck in camp, giving him day ...

1st-round WR D.J. Moore 'has looked the part'

18 June 2018

MMQB's Albert Breer writes Panthers first-round WR D.J. Moore "has looked the part" this offseason. The first receiver off the board at No. 24 overall, Moore is a dynamic weapon who is dangerous after the catch, and he apparently showed off those traits during OTAs and minicamp. In addition to Breer's praise, Panthers.com's Max Henson wrote Moore is "more than ready to contribute." Even with Devin Funchess, Greg Olsen, and Christian McCaffrey all vyi ...

Mayfield still a distant second to Tyrod

17 June 2018

According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, first-round QB Baker Mayfield has a "long way to go to unseat" starter Tyrod Taylor. Mayfield has already surpassed Drew Stanton on the Browns' QB depth chart but remains a distant second to Taylor, who has handled all of Cleveland's first-team reps. "I made a commitment to [Taylor] and he has held up his end of the bargain with not just the way he works but the way he plays and the way he leads," said coac ...

Ronald Jones in line for 15-20 touches a game

17 June 2018

Rick Stroud of Tampa Bay Times expects second-round RB Ronald Jones to earn 15-20 touches per game this season. This comes days after Stroud's colleague, Greg Auman, suggested Jones would share backfield work with power back Peyton Barber and pass-catcher Charles Sims. While 15-20 touches per game isn't quite bell-cow level, it's still a substantial workload. Even if Barber vultures some short yardage carries and Sims fills in the gaps on passing downs, there's no doubt ...

Beane: Zay Jones has to 'earn his way'

17 June 2018

In an interview with WGR 550 Buffalo, Bills GM Brandon Beane said Zay Jones will have to "earn his way" following a disappointing rookie season in 2017. "He’s not just going to necessarily go right to the top of the line," said Beane. "He’ll have to earn his way." The 23-year-old sat out OTAs while recovering from knee surgery, meaning he has yet to catch passes from newcomers A.J. McCarron and Josh Allen. Jones won't face much competit ...

Nathan Peterman a contender for starting job

17 June 2018

According to ESPN's Mike Rodak, Nathan Peterman is a "serious contender" for the Bills' starting quarterback job. He impressed while rotating first-team reps with A.J. McCarron at Bills' minicamp, completing 10-of-13 passes with a touchdown during 11-on-11 drills at Tuesday's session. Peterman struggled mightily in his lone start last year—he threw five picks against the Chargers before coming out at halftime—but has cleaned up his mechanics after spending ...
