CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora reports the Browns have “significant interest” in Tyrod Taylor. This makes the most sense for Cleveland, also benefiting Terrell Pryor. Side Note – Colin Kaepernick officially opted out of his contract becoming a free agent and Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns will not pursue Colin Kaepernick. Stay Tuned Here … With Cleveland involved, anything can happen!
The Boston Herald reports the Patriots have yet to receive a trade offer for Jimmy Garoppolo “anywhere close” to New England’s asking price. It’s doubtful that anyone will pay their asking price of a 1st and 2nd Round Pick.
PFT’s Mike Florio reports free agents Adrian Peterson and Jamaal Charles aren’t generating much interest from teams at the Combine. Peterson has been linked to Oakland, with the Bucs and Giants bowing out early, whereas the Eagles have considered Charles. Where is Green Bay at in these discussions?
Jets released WR Brandon Marshall. Most suitable teams include Baltimore, New England and the New York Giants.
The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports the Saints turned down a package that included the Patriots’ No. 32 overall pick for Brandin Cooks. New England, Tennessee and Philadelphia are the most likely landing spots going forward. Cooks is coming off of consecutive 1,100 + Receiving Yard Seasons, accumulating 17 TDs and 162 Receptions.
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport says both sides (Jeffery / Chicago) are “more than open” to a reunion. It’s going to be hard to keep Jeffery from hitting the market as the top wideout available, but Chicago has the cap space to get a deal done. That said, it’s been reported that San Francisco, Tennessee and Philadelphia will go after him hard. You are probably noticing that the SF, TEN and PHI keep popping up, which signifies they are locked and loaded to go after top level talent. We consider it extremely unlikely that Jeffery will return to Chicago, given their dismal outlook.
Citing “several people within the sport,” the Washington Post reports there is “growing sentiment” Tony Romo could land with the Texans. This one has been all over the place, but this destination makes the most sense, bringing this loaded offense back to life. If you are tied to Hopkins, Miller, or Fuller in Dynasty or Keeper Leagues, this is nothing but good news.
