NFL Notes: Bengals, Jets, Ravens, & Saints

Bengals

  • Coley Harvey guesses that RB Jeremy Hill will receive 240 carries for 1,200 yards rushing to go along with 40 catches and 175 yards receiving.
  • As for Giovanni Bernard, Harvey can see him totaling 175 carries for 750 yards rushing and 50 catches for 500 yards receiving.
  • Harvey completely rules out the possibility of A.J. McCarron pushing Andy Dalton for the starting job this summer.
  • However, there have been some “whispers” that some would prefer a competition this summer.
  • Harvey mentions that if Dalton struggles even in the slightest, there could be a lot of calls for a quarterback change.
  • Harvey expects defensive tackles Geno Atkins, Domata Peko, and Brandon Thompson to be on the team’s final 53-man roster, which leaves Pat Sims, Devon Still, Kwame Geathers and DeShawn Williams competing for jobs.

Jets

Despite skipping the Jets OTAs, DE Muhammad Wilkerson said that he has a good understanding of the team’s new defensive scheme.

“I’ve sat down with some guys and kind of went over some plays, so I know about the scheme,” Wilkerson said on Friday. “I know the things that we’re trying to get done. That’s not an issue.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Wilkerson isn’t looking for the five-year, $55 million extension that included $33.5 million in guarantees that Saints DE Cameron Jordan. Instead, Cimini believes Wilkerson is looking to best that contract.

  • According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Jets QB Geno Smith completed only 51 percent of his passes for 679 yards, one touchdown, four interceptions and seven sacks (including a lost fumble) after plays in which he either threw an interception, was sacked or lost a fumble.

Ravens

  • Jamison Hensley doesn’t think the chances of the Ravens signing veteran WR Wes Welker are very good.
  • Even if Baltimore were to consider the possibility of adding Welker, Hensley believes it would
  • ultimately come down to their confidence in Michael Campanaro.
  • Hensley can’t see the Ravens using their franchise tag on G Kelechi Osemele.
  • Instead, Hensley predicts that Baltimore will franchise K Justin Tucker next year.
  • Hensley seems to think the Ravens would restructure QB Joe Flacco‘s contract before the start of the new league year next March.

Saints

  • Mike Triplett considers the Saints’ secondary play to be key to their defensive production in 2015.
  • Triplett still considers Nick Toon to be the “strong front-runner” to be the Saints’ No. 3 receiver.
  • In regards to the Saints running back split, Triplett projects Mark Ingram to receive 240 touches with C.J. Spiller receiving 150 and Khyri Robinson getting 90.
