- NFL Draft Diamonds is hearing that the Bills are bringing in tight ends for workouts on Friday.
Newly acquired S Calvin Pryor mentioned that he sees this as a “great opportunity” and a “fresh start” with the Browns.
“I feel like it was a great opportunity — have a fresh start, learn a new system and buy into a new culture,” Pryor said, via Cleveland.com. “I had a feeling [with the Jets] drafting two safeties, but I can’t control that. I’m excited. I can’t thank (the Browns) enough.”
Earlier in the offseason, the Jets had spoken to free agent QB Jay Cutler about coming in for a visit, but a meeting never took place and New York ultimately signed Josh McCown to a contract.
Cutler tells ESPN’s Adam Schefter that they just couldn’t get a visit worked out.
“The stars didn’t really align for me to get out there,” Cutler told ESPN’s Adam Schefter this week on his “Know Them From Adam” podcast. “By the time I was scheduled to get out there, my buddy Josh had taken a visit and they worked something out with him. It all worked out. I’m happy for him.”
The Jets did, however, call Cutler as soon as he was released by the Bears, but he says that he didn’t want to rush into anything.
“I kind of balked at that because I didn’t really want to jump into anything,” Cutler said. “Whether they would’ve offered me a contract or that it would’ve worked out, I have no idea. That’s something the Jets know more than I know.”
Patriots RB Dion Lewis says he’s ready to compete for his job this summer after New England added Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead while also signing James White to an extension.
“We have a great group of guys. I’m excited to get out there with those guys, compete, have fun. That’s what it’s about, competing. I’m a competitor, so I feel pretty confident,” Lewis said, via ESPN.com. “It doesn’t matter who the names are or who they bring in, you just have to worry about how well you compete. You have to be ready to compete. You can’t think of who they bring in, and why did they bring them in.“
