  • NFL notebook: Saints, Peterson reportedly nearing deal
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    Free agent running back Adrian Peterson is close to agreeing to a deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to published reports on Monday.

    • Citing two league sources, the Times-Picayune of New Orleans reported that a deal is near for Peterson, who visited the Saints two weeks ago.

      The NFL Network reported that the sides are close to an agreement and that Peterson would receive more than $3 million to play next season.

      Peterson, who turned 32 last month, left the Minnesota Vikings as one of the best players in franchise history. He was released on March 9 after the team declined the 2017 option on his contract.

      The four-time All-Pro had seven 1,000-yard rushing seasons in nine years, including the second-best total in NFL history with 2,097 yards in 2012, but battled injuries the last few seasons.

      Peterson also led the NFL in rushing in 2015 with 1,485 yards, along with 11 touchdowns. He has 11,747 career rushing yards with 97 touchdowns in 10 seasons -- 16th on the NFL's all-time list. He is 565 yards behind Jim Brown for 10th place.

      The former Oklahoma standout and No. 7 overall pick of the Vikings in the 2007 draft missed all but three games in 2016 after undergoing right knee surgery in September. Peterson totaled 72 yards on 37 carries.

      --Former No. 1 pick Jake Long announced his NFL retirement after nine injury-plagued seasons.

      The left tackle, the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, played only four games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 before he suffered a torn Achilles on Nov. 13 to end his season.

      "As I continue with my recent rehab," Long wrote in his statement posted on Twitter, "I realize that although my heart and mind still want to play, my body is telling me something completely different."

      The Vikings signed Long last October after they had lost tackles Matt Kalil and Andre Smith to season-ending injuries. Long, who turns 32 next month, was named to the Pro Bowl in each of his first four seasons (2008-11) in the league before multiple injuries piled up. He last played more than 10 games in a season in 2013, when he started 15 games for the then-St. Louis Rams.

      --General manager John Schneider says the Seattle Seahawks will continue to listen to offers for cornerback Richard Sherman, but the team has "moved past" the idea of trading the four-time Pro Bowl selection.

      Sherman was back at the Seahawks' facility to take part in the offseason program after sitting out last week.

      "Right now we have kind of moved past it," Schneider said of Sherman during a press conference to preview the NFL Draft, which will be held Thursday through Saturday in Philadelphia. "And if somebody calls and goes crazy with something, then we'll discuss it again."

      Sherman met with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll last week amid the developing trade-talk stories. The 29-year-old Sherman, who has two years remaining on his contract, is due to earn $11.43 million in 2017 and $11 million in 2018.

      --The New England Patriots appear unlikely to trade cornerback Malcolm Butler this offseason.

      Butler, who was a restricted free agent, could not be traded until he signed the $3.91 million tender last week for the 2017 season. He visited with just one team, the New Orleans Saints, during free agency.

      Peter King of TheMMQB.com reported that the Saints still have interest in the cornerback but "the thought of dealing one or more picks for Butler, then paying him a huge contract, is less attractive than it once seemed."

      The Saints have picks 11, 32, 42, 76 and 103 in the first three rounds of the 2017 draft, which will be held Thursday through Saturday in Philadelphia. Butler previously did not sign his tender in hopes that another NFL team might sign him to an offer sheet before last Friday's deadline.

      --Running back Mike Gillislee signed with the Patriots after the Buffalo Bills decided not to match the two-year contract offer.

      Gillislee received a fifth-round tender as a restricted free agent, and the Bills will receive the Patriots' pick in that round of the NFL draft, No. 163 overall.

      A fifth-round pick in 2013, Gillislee rushed for 577 yards and eight touchdowns on 101 carries last season as LeSean McCoy's backup in Buffalo.

      Gillislee is the latest change in the backfield for the Patriots as LeGarrette Blount, who led the NFL with 18 touchdowns, remains an unrestricted free agent. The Patriots also signed running back Rex Burkhead, formerly of the Cincinnati Bengals, in March. They also return Dion Lewis and James White at the position.

      --In what hardly rates as a surprise, the New York Giants are planning to pick up the fifth-year option on star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., multiple media outlets reported.

      New York has until May 3 to pick up the option on Beckham's rookie contract, a move considered procedural given that failing to do so would allow Beckham to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018.

      "Of course we will," SportsNet New York quoted a team source as to the plans to keep Beckham in the fold.

      Beckham has hauled in double-digit touchdowns and eclipsed 1,300 yards in each of his first three seasons, but the former first-round pick (No. 12 overall) has drawn the ire of management for a lack of discipline on the field.

      --The San Francisco 49ers are "still strongly considering" taking a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in this week's NFL Draft.

      Ian Rapoport of NFL Network also reported the 49ers have done "extensive homework" on the draft's top quarterbacks, highlighted by North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson.

      According to the report, the 49ers taking a quarterback would be somewhat of a surprise, considering they signed presumptive starter Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in the offseason -- and they have Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins potentially as an option for 2018.

      The 2017 draft will be the first under the 49ers' new regime of general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan.

      --General manager Thomas Dimitroff said the Atlanta Falcons "aren't looking for angels" in this week's NFL Draft but at the same time indicated Joe Mixon is off their draft board.

      "Of course, I've said this time and again: We aren't looking for angels," Dimitroff told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution of players in the draft, which will be held Thursday through Saturday in Philadelphia. "We are looking for guys who are real. We are looking for guys who ultimately will fit into the brotherhood. ... We are particular about looking at the character situation and how they fit. It's a big thing, of course."

      The Falcons have the 31st pick in the first round.

      Mixon, the former Oklahoma running back who was involved in a highly publicized domestic violence case, is not on the team's draft board, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported.

      --The family of former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will gain access to three handwritten notes that the player allegedly wrote before he killed himself, a lawyer for the family said.

      Attorney George Leontire told reporters early Monday afternoon that a Bristol Superior Court judge in New Bedford, Mass., ordered the release of the notes to the family, the Boston Globe reported.

      The legal action came minutes before funeral services were scheduled to begin for Hernandez in Bristol, Conn.

      As part of his motion, Leontire said Hernandez's family deserved "know their loved one's final thoughts" and termed it a necessary part of the "grieving process."

      --The Washington Redskins re-signed restricted free agent linebacker Will Compton to his tender contract.

      Compton's deal for the 2017 season is worth $1.8 million, according to ESPN. Compton, 27, was voted the team's defensive captain prior to last season.

      The 6-foot-1, 238-pound Compton registered a career-high 104 tackles (60 solo) in 2016 -- his third full season with the Redskins. He had five passes defensed, two fumble recoveries and one interception while starting 15 games.

      An undrafted free agent out of Nebraska, Compton appeared in one game with Washington in 2013 but has missed just one game over the past three seasons.

  • Bills decline to match Patriots' offer for RB Gillislee

  • CB Sherman back with Seahawks, might be staying
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    General manager John Schneider says the Seattle Seahawks will continue to listen to offers for cornerback Richard Sherman, but the team has "moved past" the idea of trading the four-time Pro Bowl selection.

    • Sherman was back at the Seahawks' facility on Monday to take part in the offseason program after sitting out last week.

      "Right now we have kind of moved past it," Schneider said of Sherman during a press conference to preview the NFL Draft, which will be held Thursday through Saturday in Philadelphia. "And if somebody calls and goes crazy with something, then we'll discuss it again.

      "But at this point, I don't mean go crazy but give you like compensation where it's something that you really, truly have to think about it and consider it, we would have to consider it. And we would consider it because of, it's like I said, it's been a mutual thing, it's OK.

      "And we feel like it would be, it would clear cap room, we would be able to get younger. But that's the only reason we would do it. I mean the guy is one of the top cornerbacks in the league. You don't just give him away, you know?"

      Sherman met with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll last week amid the developing trade-talk stories.

      "I don't like necessarily lying to people," Schneider told reporters. "I try to teach my boys not to lie about things. So I don't really think we didn't think there was anything to hide. People say, 'Well why do you have your business out in the open or whatever.'

      "It was basically already out there. People had been talking about it. There had been rumors out there. We have had conversations with teams. But it's just he's at a good place."

      Schneider's comments suggest Sherman, who has played for the Seahawks since they drafted him in the fifth round out of Stanford in 2011, will be back for a seventh season.

      The 29-year-old Sherman, who has two years remaining on his contract, is due to earn $11.43 million in 2017 and $11 million in 2018.

      Sherman played through a knee injury last season and had multiple sideline incidents with Seattle coaches. He finished the 2016 season with 58 tackles and four interceptions in 16 games.

  • Saints, RB Peterson reportedly close to deal

      Peterson would have made $11.75 million in base salary with a $6- million roster bonus had his option been picked up by the Vikings.

      The Saints already have a 1,000-yard rusher, Mark Ingram, who totaled a career-high 1,043 yards last season. Ingram, 27, has battled injuries since he was drafted in the first round in 2011, with last season marking only the second time he's appeared in all 16 games.

  • Hernandez's family to get copies of suicide notes
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    The family of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez will gain access to three handwritten notes that the player allegedly wrote before he killed himself, a lawyer for the family said Monday.

    • Attorney George Leontire told reporters early Monday afternoon that a Bristol Superior Court judge in New Bedford, Mass., ordered the release of the notes to the family, the Boston Globe reported.

      The legal action came minutes before funeral services were scheduled to begin for Hernandez in Bristol, Conn.

      As part of his motion, Leontire said Hernandez's family deserved "know their loved one's final thoughts" and termed it a necessary part of the "grieving process."

      Superior Court Judge Thomas F. McGuire Jr., in an order to the office of Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr., wrote that "the note(s) shall be produced in time for the family to have them for his burial, which is scheduled for this afternoon.''

      A spokesman for Early's office said copies of the notes were being prepared to send to Hernandez's family. As part of McGuire's order, the district attorney was to redact any information that would be pertinent to an ongoing investigation into Hernandez's death.

      Guards discovered the 27-year-old Hernandez in his single cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley just after 3 a.m. ET last Wednesday morning. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital about an hour later.

      Hernandez was serving a life sentence for the murder of Odin Lloyd. The state medical examiner officially ruled it a suicide on Thursday.

      Three handwritten notes were found in the cell but the contents weren't immediately released.

      While Leontire said he did not know who the recipients of the notes were, the newspaper reported that one of them was addressed to his fiancee, Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, and another to their 4-year-old daughter.

  • Former No. 1 overall pick Long retires
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    Former No. 1 pick Jake Long announced his NFL retirement on Monday after nine injury-plagued seasons.

    • The left tackle, the first overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins, played only four games with the Minnesota Vikings in 2016 before he suffered a torn Achilles on Nov. 13 to end his season.

      "As I continue with my recent rehab," Long wrote in his statement posted on Twitter, "I realize that although my heart and mind still want to play, my body is telling me something completely different."

      Long played in just 15 games for the Rams, Atlanta Falcons and Vikings over the past three seasons.

      Long thanked all of the teams he played for in his career but particularly the Dolphins.

      "Most of all, I want to thank the Miami Dolphins, Mr. (Stephen) Ross, Tony Sparano and Bill Parcells, thank you," Long wrote on Twitter. "You believed in me and gave me my first opportunity to live my dream of playing in the NFL. I will always be a proud and lifelong Miami Dolphin!"

  • Giants to exercise WR Beckham's fifth-year option before deadline
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    In what hardly rates as a surprise, the New York Giants are planning to pick up the fifth-year option on star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., multiple media outlets reported Monday.

    • New York has until May 3 to pick up the option on Beckham's rookie contract, a move considered procedural given that failing to do so would allow Beckham to become an unrestricted free agent in 2018.

      "Of course we will," SportsNet New York quoted a team source as to the plans to keep Beckham in the fold.

      Beckham has hauled in double-digit touchdowns and eclipsed 1,300 yards in each of his first three seasons, but the former first-round pick (No. 12 overall) has drawn the ire of management for a lack of discipline on the field.

      General manager Jerry Reese in the past expressed the need for Beckham to control his temper on the field and last week declined to say that picking up Beckham's option is a certainly.

      "We are going to discuss that when the time gets closer," Reese said last week. "We will keep all of our options open with respect to that."

      Beckham had a career-high 101 receptions for 1,367 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. He has 288 catches and 35 touchdowns over his first three seasons.

      Yet the wideout ended the season on a sour note in the NFL wild-card round, finishing with 28 yards on four receptions and dropping three passes. He also reportedly punched a hole in the wall outside of the visitor's locker room at Lambeau Field.

      "I think he's a guy that hears what we're saying," Reese said. "And like (team owner) John (Mara) said, 'We are not worried about Odell.' He's a young kid, he's growing up every day, and we think that he's going to continue being a tremendous football player and a tremendous representative of our organization here."

  • CB Butler likely to stay with Patriots

    The New England Patriots appear unlikely to trade cornerback Malcolm Butler this offseason.

    • Butler, who was a restricted free agent, could not be traded until he signed the $3.91 million tender last week for the 2017 season. He visited with just one team, the New Orleans Saints, during free agency.

      Peter King of TheMMQB.com reported Monday that the Saints still have interest in the cornerback but "the thought of dealing one or more picks for Butler, then paying him a huge contract, is less attractive than it once seemed."

      The Saints have picks 11, 32, 42, 76 and 103 in the first three rounds of the 2017 draft, which will be held Thursday through Saturday in Philadelphia.

      Butler previously did not sign his tender in hopes that another NFL team might sign him to an offer sheet before last Friday's deadline.

      It is now highly unlikely Butler will be traded, sources confirmed to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

      Saints coach Sean Payton said at the NFL meetings last month the team plans to add two cornerbacks this offseason and showed his interest in the 27-year-old Butler after the visit.

      Butler has played in 43 regular-season games with 33 starts, including starting all 16 games in each of the last two seasons for the Patriots. He has six career interceptions and 36 passes defensed in three seasons.

      Butler has played in eight postseason games with five starts, and he made an interception at the goal-line that secured the win over the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX. He was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2015 season.

      9 *Leonard Fournette RB Jr LSU 6-0 240 4.51 1 Most freakish combination of speed and power since Adrian Peterson but some question his commitment.

      10 Reuben Foster ILB Sr Alabama 6-0 229 4.72 1 A power athlete with range, diagnose skills and predator mentality - Foster just needs to stay disciplined.

      17 *Deshaun Watson QB Jr Clemson 6-2 221 4.66 1 Polarizing prospect with FBS-worst 30 INTs over 2015-16 but an undeniable dual threat with the "it" factor.

      30 TreDavious White CB Sr LSU 5-11 192 4.47 1-2 Four-year SEC starter, White is a good-sized athlete with smarts, ballskills and seasoning for the NFL.

      31 Evan Engram TE Sr Mississippi 6-3 234 4.42 1-2 Joker TE or big slot receiver with true mismatch potential at 6-3, 234 with 4.42 speed. A Jordan Reed clone.

      33 Kevin King CB Sr Washington 6-3 200 4.43 1-2 Ideal length, agility and speed for boundary CB. Not as physical as size, experience at S suggests.

      34 Takkarist McKinley OLB Sr UCLA 6-2 250 4.59 1-2 Unrefined, but Takk's speed and motor are near elite; shoulder might not be ready for 2017 season opener.

      35 *Cam Robinson OT Jr Alabama 6-6 322 5.15 1-2 Reigning Outland Trophy winner despite playing vs. murderer's row of SEC rushers. Projects best to RT, OG.

      188 Hunter Dimick DE rSr Utah 6-3 268 4.75 5-6 Snubbed by Combine; pass rush is reliant more on hustle than twitchy athleticism, but he gets the job done.

      189 Marquez White CB Sr Florida State 6-0 194 4.59 5-6 Lean, agile press corner with the arm length (32 1/8") and quickness to mirror. Also played basketball at FSU.

      194 Elijah McGuire RB Sr Louisiana 5-10 214 4.53 5-6 School's all-time leader in all-purpose yards (5,968); McGuire is a reliable receiver and change-of-pace RB.

      202 Delano Hill FS Sr Michigan 6-1 216 4.47 6 So-so ballskills, but Hill is a shutdown run defender with range and at worst projects well on special teams.

      203 *Aaron Jones RB rJr Texas-El Paso 5-09 208 4.56 6 Cutback kamikaze with over 2,000 combined rushing (1,773) and receiving yards over 12 games in 2016.

      210 Amba Etta-Tawo WR rSr Syracuse 6-1 208 4.49 6 Maryland grad transfer, made most of his final season (94/1,482/14); high batting average as a deep threat.

      228 Aviante Collins OG rSr Texas Christian 6-4 295 4.81 6-7 Created buzz at the Combine with his 40-yard dash (4.81) and bench (34 reps), but tape is spotty at best.

  • 49ers 'strongly considering' QB at No. 2 in draft
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    The San Francisco 49ers are "still strongly considering" taking a quarterback with the No. 2 overall pick in this week's NFL Draft.

    • Ian Rapoport of NFL Network also reported the 49ers have done "extensive homework" on the draft's top quarterbacks, highlighted by North Carolina's Mitch Trubisky and Clemson's Deshaun Watson.

      According to the report, the 49ers taking a quarterback would be somewhat of a surprise, considering they signed presumptive starter Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley in the offseason -- and they have Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins potentially as an option for 2018.

      The 2017 draft will be the first under the 49ers' new regime of general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan.

      Shanahan has yet to commit to Hoyer as his starter, but the two-year, $12 million agreement -- with $6.95 million guaranteed -- is a strong indication he is the early front-runner.

      Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett may be the favorite for the Cleveland Browns as the No. 1 overall draft pick, but Trubisky is reportedly still under serious consideration.

  • Falcons GM: 'We aren't looking for angels' in draft
    By The Sports Xchange / Monday, April 24, 2017

    General manager Thomas Dimitroff said the Atlanta Falcons "aren't looking for angels" in this week's NFL Draft but at the same time indicated Joe Mixon is off their draft board.

    • "Of course, I've said this time and again: We aren't looking for angels," Dimitroff told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution of players in the draft, which will be held Thursday through Saturday in Philadelphia. "We are looking for guys who are real. We are looking for guys who ultimately will fit into the brotherhood. ... We are particular about looking at the character situation and how they fit. It's a big thing, of course."

      The Falcons have the 31st pick in the first round.

      Mixon, the former Oklahoma running back who was involved in a highly publicized domestic violence case, is not on the team's draft board, the Atlanta-Journal Constitution reported.

      "That doesn't just come from a head coach and general manager," Dimitroff said, referring to the character of players. "Believe me, that comes from higher than us for sure. (Owner Arthur) Blank is very direct about it. I think that's important for this organization and this community to know that."

      According to the newspaper, the Falcons have increased background checks from scouts and former law enforcement officials since the 2007 federal dogfighting case involving former star quarterback Michael Vick.

      "There are some very good football players with some excellent talent in this country that have issues that don't fit well with us or another team," Dimitroff said. "We've done a lot of research. We don't just use our scouts. We have other instruments and avenues on the backside to get ready for this (in order to be) sure, as much as possible, that we are making the most educated decision."

  • Rams waive OG Jackson after failed physical
    By The Sports Xchange / Sunday, April 23, 2017

    The Los Angeles Rams waived offensive guard Tre' Jackson after he failed a physical.

    • Jackson, 24, was claimed off waivers last week after being let go by the New England Patriots.

      The 6-foot-4, 320-pound Jackson missed the entire 2016 season because of a knee injury. He started nine of 13 games played for the Patriots as a rookie after being selected in the fourth round of the 2015 draft out of Florida State.

  • NFL notebook: Chiefs release DL Howard
    By The Sports Xchange / Saturday, April 22, 2017

    The Kansas City Chiefs released defensive lineman Jaye Howard, according to multiple reports Saturday.

    • Howard, 28, spent the last four seasons with the Chiefs and was scheduled to make $3.7 million in base salary in 2017, including $2.5 million in guarantees.

      The Chiefs released Howard now in part because they want him to sign with another team in order to get some offset money and recover part of the $2.5 million guaranteed salary, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

      The 6-foot-3, 301-pound Howard appeared in eight games (four starts) with the Chiefs in 2016, making 23 tackles and one sack. He suffered a hip injury in November and was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Dec. 1 .

      --Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett may be the favorite for the Cleveland Browns as the No. 1 overall draft pick, but North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky is reportedly still under serious consideration.

      Sources told Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that the Browns are strongly considering taking Trubisky with the top pick.

      The Browns appear to have "split opinions" on Garrett vs. Trubisky at No. 1 overall.

      Browns vice president of football operations Sashi Brown gave hints during his pre-draft press conference Wednesday that Cleveland has zeroed in on Garrett.

      But the feeling of the front office is that the Browns are ready to draft their quarterback of the future and might not want to risk losing him if they try to trade up or hope he falls to them with their second first-round pick at No. 12, sources told Cleveland.com.

      --Quarterback Brock Osweiler's future remains in limbo but the Browns said he may be with the team for the start of training camp although Cleveland is expected to continue pursuing a trade during the draft.

      "Yeah, we expect Brock to be here," Brown said when asked whether Osweiler would be on the team in training camp. "He is in (for the offseason program) and has done a good job coming in the first couple days. He is a positive young man who has some ability and talent. We look forward to him trying to establish himself here and have a chance to compete to be the starting quarterback."

      Osweiler was acquired in March in a deal that allowed the Houston Texans to send his $16 million guaranteed salary to Cleveland and permitted the Browns to add a second-round draft pick in 2018.

      --Unlike last spring when ownership saddled the personnel department with weighty expectations of adding a quarterback -- the failed Osweiler experiment -- Houston Texans general manager Rick Smith said the team is feeling no urgency to draft a quarterback in 2017.

      The Texans right now have Tom Savage as their starting quarterback with the NFL Draft kicking off in Philadelphia next Thursday.

      "I don't feel pressure (to draft a quarterback)," Smith told reporters Friday. "At some point, we're going to add a quarterback. We have two QBs on the roster and our intention is to go to camp with three QBs."

      Along with Savage, the Texans have veteran Brandon Weeden on their roster after they traded last season's starting quarterback, Osweiler, to the Browns in March.

      --Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Taylor Gabriel signed his second-round tender worth approximately $2.8 million.

      Gabriel is coming off a breakout 2016 season in which he had 35 catches for 579 yards and matched star Julio Jones with a team high-tying six touchdown receptions. The 26-year-old Gabriel also had four carries for 51 yards and a score.

      --Former NFL running back Glen Coffee is attempting a comeback, seven years removed from retiring after just one season in the league.

      Coffee, 29, was reinstated by the NFL on Friday and subsequently waived by his former team, the San Francisco 49ers.

      Selected in the third round of the 2009 draft, Coffee rushed 83 times for 226 yards and reeled in 11 receptions for 76 yards and a touchdown during his lone season with San Francisco. He then retired in 2010 and initially said he would enter the ministry.

      Coffee changed gears, however, enlisting in the Army in 2013 and served as a specialist in the infantry for nearly four years.

      Howard recorded 122 tackles and 7.5 sacks in 43 games with the Chiefs. He entered the NFL as a fourth-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in 2012, playing only two games as a rookie. He was waived before his second season and picked up by the Chiefs.

      Chiefs coach Andy Reid gave an update on Howard's recovery from hip surgery as recently as Monday.

      "He's actually been rehabbing in Orlando with the surgeon that did his work there, and he's doing well," Reid told the Kansas City Star.

  • Falcons WR Gabriel signs tender

      Gabriel was undrafted out of Abilene Christian before signing with the Cleveland Browns in 2014, totaling 64 catches for 862 yards and one touchdown in two seasons.

      The 5-foot-8 slot receiver, who said last month that he wanted to be a "Falcon forever," came to Atlanta in March 2016 on a one-year, $600,000 deal.

  • Report: QB Trubisky still serious candidate for Browns at No. 1
    By The Sports Xchange / Saturday, April 22, 2017

    Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett may be the favorite for the Cleveland Browns as the No. 1 overall draft pick, but North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky is reportedly still under serious consideration.

      The San Francisco 49ers also like Trubisky and might take him at No. 2, according to the report.

      If that scenario played out, the Browns would likely turn to Clemson's Deshaun Watson or Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes.

      Browns coach Hue Jackson is firmly in the Garrett camp at No. 1 and so is new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams.

      Earlier this week during his pre-draft press conference, Brown said the team has just about finalized its decision at No. 1.

      "We feel good about where we're going to be and who we're going to pick there (at No. 1),'' Brown said. "We've narrowed it down. We feel good about where we are.

      "We have received calls. We haven't resigned ourselves one way or the other. We feel really good about picking at one and I'll leave it at that."

      Meanwhile, quarterback Brock Osweiler's future remains in limbo but the Browns said he may be with the team for the start of training camp although Cleveland is expected to continue pursuing a trade during the draft.

      "I think he's proven that he understands this offense," Smith said. "I think he's proven that he can play at a high level in the offense. He's been injured, so he hasn't had an extended amount of time to do that, but I am comfortable with that."

      The Texans have the 25th overall pick in next week's draft.

      "There's a lot of diversity in this draft," Smith said. "And it's just a matter of in a lot of respects in this draft, it's going to be beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It's 'what is that vision for that player that we think he can come here and do for our football team' and that's a part of the evaluation process."

  • NFL notebook: Raiders want resolution on Lynch
    By The Sports Xchange / Friday, April 21, 2017

    The Oakland Raiders are still waiting for running back Marshawn Lynch to officially announce he wants to resume his playing career with his hometown team.

    • Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie wants to set a deadline by next week's NFL Draft, which gets underway Thursday in Philadelphia.

      A week ago, reports surfaced that "Beast Mode" was returning to the NFL after a one-season retirement, agreeing to a contract with the Raiders. That report turned out to be premature.

      The Seattle Seahawks own Lynch's rights, so the two sides still have to work out a deal before Lynch could become a member of the Raiders.

      The Raiders would like a resolution before the draft.

      --The Washington Redskins re-signed restricted free agent running back Chris Thompson to his tender contract.

      Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams, but Thompson did not sign with anyone else since being tendered by the Redskins.

      Last season, the 26-year-old Thompson played in all 16 games for the first time in his career, posting career highs in rushing attempts (68), rushing yards (356), rushing touchdowns (three), receptions (49) and receiving yards (349) while matching his career high with two receiving touchdowns.

      --Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Shaquelle Evans, a practice-squad player last season, was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 campaign by the NFL for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the team announced.

      Evans, 26, has not played a regular-season game for the Cowboys, and after being on the practice squad last season, Evans was signed to the Cowboys' reserve/future list in January.

      --The Indianapolis Colts signed undrafted free agent tight end Mo Alie-Cox, a former Virginia Commonwealth basketball player.

      The 6-foot-7, 250-pound Alie-Cox was a four-year standout on the VCU basketball team. He worked out for 30 of the 32 NFL teams earlier this month.

      The Colts said in their announcement that although Alie-Cox has not played football since his freshman year in high school, he possesses the athleticism to make the transition from basketball to football.

  • Cowboys WR Evans receives four-game suspension
    By The Sports Xchange / Friday, April 21, 2017

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Shaquelle Evans, a practice-squad player last season, was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 campaign by the NFL for violating the league's Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse, the team announced Friday.

    • Evans, 26, has not played a regular-season game for the Cowboys, and this suspension certainly will not enhance his chances of getting on the field.

      After being on the practice squad last season, Evans was signed to the Cowboys' reserve/future list in January.

      He will be eligible to return to the Cowboys' active roster on Oct. 2 following Dallas' Oct. 1 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

      Evans was a fourth-round pick by the New York Jets in 2014.

      He spent the last three years with three teams and has not played in a regular-season NFL game.

  • Redskins retain RB Thompson
    By The Sports Xchange / Friday, April 21, 2017

    The Washington Redskins re-signed restricted free agent running back Chris Thompson to his tender contract.

    • Friday was the deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets with other teams, but Thompson did not sign with anyone else since being tendered by the Redskins.

      The 5-foot-8, 195-pound Thompson has appeared in 35 career regular-season games since joining the Redskins as a fifth-round pick in the 2013 NFL draft out of Florida State.

      In his first four NFL seasons, Thompson had 106 carries for 584 rushing yards and three touchdowns. He also caught 90 passes for 616 yards and five TDs.

      Last season, the 26-year-old Thompson played in all 16 games for the first time in his career, posting career highs in rushing attempts (68), rushing yards (356), rushing touchdowns (three), receptions (49) and receiving yards (349) while matching his career high with two receiving touchdowns.

      Thompson was one of only two players in the NFL to record at least 60 carries, 40 receptions and 15 kickoff returns in 2016 (Green Bay's Ty Montgomery was the other).

      Lynch hinted that he was interested in playing for the Raiders earlier this year. He is an Oakland native and played collegiately at Cal before embarking on his NFL career.

      "Every indication is he is excited to play for the Oakland Raiders," Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said Friday.

      The prospects sped up last week when the Seahawks granted the Raiders permission to negotiate with Lynch.

      There was an assumption that progress was being made when Lynch tweeted, "I'm Thankfull!!!! Yes Lawd!!!!"

      Lynch, who turns 31 on Saturday, retired from the NFL and Seahawks after the 2015 season. He has been on the reserve/retired list since May 2016.

      Under terms of his existing contract, Lynch would be in line for a $9 million salary and cap hit in 2017, and he would be due a base salary of $7 million in 2018 and could potentially earn an additional $3 million roster bonus, according to ESPN. The sides need to agree on new contract terms before a deal could move forward.

      Lynch racked up six 1,000-yard seasons in his career and rushed for 9,112 yards and 74 touchdowns in nine seasons with the Buffalo Bills and Seahawks. He topped 1,200 yards in four consecutive seasons for Seattle from 2011-14 before being hindered by injuries in 2015. He played in only seven games and recorded 417 yards and three touchdowns in his last season.

  • Colts sign hoopster Alie-Cox
    By The Sports Xchange / Friday, April 21, 2017

    The Indianapolis Colts on Friday signed undrafted free agent tight end Mo Alie-Cox, a former Virginia Commonwealth basketball player.

    • The 6-foot-7, 250-pound Alie-Cox was a four-year standout on the VCU basketball team. He worked out for 30 of the 32 NFL teams earlier this month.

      The Colts said in their announcement that although Alie-Cox has not played football since his freshman year in high school, he possesses the athleticism to make the transition from basketball to football similar to Indianapolis tight ends Erik Swoope and Marcus Pollard, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates and Seattle tight end Jimmy Graham.

      Alie-Cox averaged 9.5 points and 4.2 rebounds last season at VCU.
