NFL Notes: Sam Bradford, Kellen Winslow, Buccaneers, Panthers, & Steelers

Sam Bradford

  • Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that the report from Jim Trotter that Sam Bradford asked the Eagles for $25 million per year last year was likely just a starting point for negotiations.
  • Florio adds that Bradford, obviously, won’t come close to making $25 million annually in his next contract, and there’s a chance he may not even make $10 million per year.

Kellen Winslow

Veteran TE Kellen Winslow tweeted Wednesday that intends to make a comeback.



New Buccaneers DC Mike Smith said he plans to employ a “flexible” 4-3 defensive scheme.

It’s gonna be very flexible,” Smith said, via BucsNation.com. “You can’t line up in the same look and the same front every time, so we’re going to have a lot of flexibility and we’re going to identify what the players are capable of doing and try to give different looks to the quarterback.”



  • Jeremy Fowler of ESPN mentions that it will probably be an easy decision for the Steelers to re-sign CB William Gay.
  • Fowler gets the sense that CB Brandon Boykin will want a fresh start somewhere else.
  • Fowler could see the Steelers drafting a rangy, athletic cornerback in the first two rounds of this year’s draft.
  • Regarding Cortez Allen, who has been mentioned as a cap casualty, Fowler believe Pittsburgh may elect to take the cap savings and move on from him.
  • Fowler suggests signings Rams free agent CB Janoris Jenkins, but admits that the Steelers rarely go this route in free agency.
