NFL Notes: Broncos, Cowboys, Rams, & Texans

Albert Breer of NFL Media reports that the Cowboys were prepared to take Todd Gurley with the 27th overall pick had he been available to them.

According to Breer, the Cowboys had RB T.J. Yeldon graded as a second-round pick, and the team would’ve had a tough decision to make had he still be on the board in round two.

Breer mentions that Dallas considered using a seventh-round pick on Thomas Rawls.

A team source tells Breer that while DeMarco Murray was great for them, they also had their concerns about him if he wasn’t a big part of their attack.

“The guy is a pro in his preparation and toughness and competitiveness,” said Breer’s source. “But he’s also entitled, selfish and condescending. He’s a great ‘team’ guy when he’s the guy.


Regarding the request made by St. Louis for the NFL to contribute another $100 million to the stadium project, Albert Breer mentions that there are a number of issues with this idea.

  1. Oakland and San Diego would have a strong argument if the league made an exception for St. Louis.
  2. It would need to garner a three-quarters vote from NFL owners, which is by no means a guarantee.
  3. Rams owner Stan Kroenke may not accept the help from the league.

Sources tell Breer that Kroenke’s goal in securing a new stadium is to change the economics of the franchise. Beyond that, Kroenke reportedly views the St. Louis’ deal as falling far short of improving the team’s economics and “substantially worse” than the one the Vikings got from the city of Minneapolis.


  • Texans QB Brian Hoyer was back at the team’s facility on Friday, but remains in the concussion protocol.
  • According to Aaron Wilson, Hoyer is feeling better since Monday.
