  • Interestingly enough, Miller adds that the 49ers could trade back into round one with Colin Kaepernick possibly being used as trade capital.

Saints

Saints QB Drew Brees mentioned during an interview with the NFL Network that contract talks are ongoing with the team.

No, I mean listen, conversations are ongoing and as this usually goes with contract talks, it kind of goes throughout the offseason,” Brees said. “As soon as there’s something to report I’ll let you know.

Brees added that he still has trust in organization, and plans to retire as a Saint.

Steelers

  • Matt Miller reports that the Steelers are set on taking a cornerback in round one.
  • Instead, they could consider taking West Virginia S Karl Joseph depending on his medicals.
  • Miller adds that the Steelers have no plans to make backup QB Landry Jones available for trade, as they value him even more after a good showing last year.

Titans

  • Matt Miller says that the current buzz right now regarding the Titans is that they’re considering a trade back into the top 10 for a right tackle.
  • Miller mentions that the Titans may try to get ahead of the Browns at No. 8 overall to take Jack Conklin, considering that he’s believed to be a Browns’ target.
