HC Gase messaged Peyton Manning about return

24 June 2017

According to Archie Manning, Dolphins coach Adam Gase sent a text to Peyton Manning to gauge his interest in a comeback to football late last season. The message was sent directly after Ryan Tannehill partially tore his ACL in Week 14 last season. The text said, "Hey 18, Tannehill went down. I think he's going to miss some time. The first question I'm going to get at the press conference in the morning is if I'm going to bring you to Miami. What do you want me to t ...

Lions S Wilson sued for alleged assault of ex

24 June 2017

Lions S Tavon Wilson is being sued for allegedly punching his ex-girlfriend in the face. The alleged assault took place at a nightclub in May 2016, but Wilson completely denies he is the attacker. Wilson's lawyer says, "There's video of the incident that shows Ms. Leach [Wilson's current girlfriend] is attacked. Mr. Wilson is a witness, Ms. Leach is the victim, and Ms. Jackson [Wilson's ex-girlfriend] is the defendant... Her civil claim is meritless." A police ...

Jay Gruden gushes about third-year WR Crowder

23 June 2017

Coach Jay Gruden gushed about Jamison Crowder, saying "he's an excellent, dynamic player and continues to prove every day why we like him so much." "He can run just about anything you ask him to run," Gruden said. "He gets himself open because he’s got a great feel. He’s got quickness in and out of his breaks. He plays a lot longer than his size. He has got really long arms. He goes up and gets balls. Sometime he plays bigger than a ta ...

Matt Forte to be Jets' 'offensive workhorse'?

23 June 2017

NJ Advance Media's Connor Hughes expects Matt Forte to be the Jets' "offensive workhorse" this season. Color us skeptical. Most talk around the Jets this offseason has been hinting at a changing of the guard at running back for the rebuilding Jets, with Bilal Powell becoming the 1A as Forte takes a back seat as the 1B. Hughes doesn't believe that to be the case and expects Powell to be the "complement" to Forte. Nothing is settled in this backfiel ...

Tajae Sharpe could lose spot on Titans roster

22 June 2017

The Nashville Tennessean speculates Tajae Sharpe (foot surgery) may have a "tenuous grasp on a roster spot" entering training camp. Sharpe is expected to be ready for camp, but coach Mike Mularkey said he could have a "hard time" if he is not able to stay in shape. "Obviously he’s not going to run right now, but he’s got to do something to stay in shape," Mularkey said. "You’ve got to be ready to go. No matter what your injury is ...

Report: Dorsey was 'butting heads' with owner

22 June 2017

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports ex-Chiefs GM John Dorsey was "butting heads" with owner Clark Hunt. Per Cole, that's what Dorsey "told a source within the past two months." No reason was given, but USA Today reported earlier Thursday the team believed Dorsey had botched long-term negotiations with Justin Houston and Eric Berry. Dorsey has been an excellent drafter, though coach Andy Reid is an influence in every department of Chiefs personnel. A ...

Jets to be run by brother in Woody's absence

22 June 2017

Jets owner Woody Johnson's brother Christopher is expected to take over the day-to-day operations of the team if Woody is confirmed as Ambassador of the United States to the Court of St James's. In the words of the team, Christopher will "directly oversee all day-to-day team operations." Things are a little acrimonious in the United States Senate right now — in case you hadn't heard — but Johnson will almost certainly be confirmed as ambassador. In theory, ...

Woody Johnson nominated for ambassadorship

22 June 2017

Jets owner Woody Johnson has been officially nominated to be the United States' ambassador to the United Kingdom. The move had been rumored since January. It had been delayed for reasons unknown by president Donald Trump. Johnson won't be the first owner in the past 10 years to serve as an ambassador, and will join the late, great Dan Rooney. Rooney was Barack Obama's ambassador to Ireland from 2009-12. It's unclear how the appointment will affect Johnson's football dut ...

Chiefs thought Dorsey mishandled big deals

22 June 2017

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports one of the issues the Chiefs had with fired GM John Dorsey was his inability to get extensions with Justin Houston and Eric Berry done faster. Per Pelissero, the Chiefs believed the slowness "cost them more later." It makes sense on the surface, but that's hardly a rarity with blue-chip players. The delay in Berry's case seemed more questionable than the delay in Houston's. The national media is reporting widespread shock at D ...

Chiefs hope to have new GM by training camp

22 June 2017

Profootballtalk reports the Chiefs have a "loose goal" of replacing ex-GM John Dorsey by training camp. Per Mike Florio, Dorsey's replacement will report directly to owner Clark Hunt, as Dorsey supposedly did. "Supposedly" because it's unmistakable who calls the shots on the football side in Kansas City: Coach Andy Reid. ESPN reports in-house candidates to replace Dorsey are co-director of player personnel Brett Veach and pro personnel scout Mike Bor ...

Chiefs announce extension for HC Andy Reid

22 June 2017

Chiefs signed coach Andy Reid to a contract extension. Reid was entering the final season of his original five-year deal. The terms of the extension have yet to be made public — they often never are with coaches — but it's richly deserved. Reid is 43-21 (.672) as a Chief, making the playoffs 3-of-4 seasons. He has coached around major deficiencies on offense, and been completely reinvigorated on his stale final few years in Philadelphia. Reid turned 59 in March. ...

Stunner: Chiefs GM Dorsey out in Kansas City

22 June 2017

Chiefs fired GM John Dorsey. It's a stunning, baffling move. Like coach Andy Reid, Dorsey was heading into the final year of his contract. Owner Clark Hunt informed Dorsey he would not be receiving an extension, essentially firing him by way of forcing him out. Dorsey was hired to do Reid's bidding. There had been no indications of friction. Reid's already mammoth power in Kansas City now increases. It's hard to know how much of Reid's credit Dorsey deserved, but on the ...

Giants owner: Eli has 'lot of years left'

22 June 2017

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Giants co-owner John Mara said Eli Manning has "a lot of years left in him." It's the exact opposite of what Mara and most of the Giants' brass were saying earlier this offseason. Speaking in March, Mara said he was open to drafting Manning's successor. The G-Men ended up settling on third-round question mark Davis Webb. Headed into his age-36 campaign, Manning simply wasn't good enough in 2016. Coach Ben McAdoo said as ...

Carr's deal contains $40M fully guaranteed

22 June 2017

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Derek Carr's five-year, $125-million extension contains $40 million fully guaranteed. According to Pelissero, the deal includes $70 million in total guarantees. Those numbers put him below Andrew Luck, but he did edge him out in average annual value. More interestingly, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports the deal "features a delayed cash flow" which will both help the Raiders re-sign players like Khalil Ma ...

Done Deal: Carr lands 5-year, $125M extension

22 June 2017

Raiders signed Derek Carr to a five-year, $125-million extension through 2022. Ian Rapoport was first with the news, but Carr confirmed it himself on Twitter, saying he always wanted to be a "Raider 4 life." The $25-million average makes Carr the highest-paid player in NFL history, but the structure of the deal could be interesting with the Raiders moving to Nevada, which does not have a state income tax, and the current CBA set to expire during the course of ...

Tajae Sharpe could lose his roster spot?

22 June 2017

The Nashville Tennessean's Jason Wolf speculates Tajae Sharpe (foot surgery) may have a "tenuous grasp on a roster spot" entering training camp. Recovering from surgery on his right foot, Sharpe is expected to be ready for camp, but coach Mike Mularkey said he could have a "hard time" if he is not able to stay in shape. "Obviously he’s not going to run right now, but he’s got to do something to stay in shape," Mularkey said. "You ...

Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls to split carries?

22 June 2017

The Seattle Times' Bob Condotta believes Eddie Lacy and Thomas Rawls will "take a fairly equal share of the basedown carries."

Team reporter 'cannot imagine' a Bell holdout

22 June 2017

Steelers.com's Bob Labriola wrote he "cannot imagine a realistic scenario" in which franchise-tagged Le'Veon Bell holds out into the season. Bell has yet to sign his franchise tender, but when he does he will be owed $12.1 million, almost $6 million more than any other running back will receive in base salary this year. Even if he does not get the long-term deal he wants before the July 17 deadline, Bell is unlikely to leave that kind of money on the table. Wh ...

Done Deal: Carr lands 5-yr, $125M extension

22 June 2017

Raiders signed Derek Carr to a five-year, $125-million extension through 2022.

Ebron believes new TEs will help him thrive

22 June 2017

Eric Ebron believes the Lions' offseason additions at tight end will allow him to "do the things that I’m best at." The Lions added two block-first tight ends in the offseason, signing Darren Fells in free agency and selecting Michael Roberts in the fourth round. Those two should allow Ebron to play more of a receiving role, something he believes will be "significant." After seeing 85 targets in 13 games last year, Ebron has a real path to 100 this ...
