NFL Notes: Bears, Jets, Packers, Panthers

Bears & Packers

Bears CB Deiondre’ Hall and Packers CB Makinton Dorleant were arrested in Cedar Falls, Iowa on Saturday night, according to KWWL.com.

Hall was cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and interference after he was arguing with police officers and wound up being tased for refusing to get in the police car.

Makinton Dorleant was cited for interference.

  • Ian Rapoport reports that one of George Halas‘ grandchildren will sell a small piece of the Bears back to the McCaskey family.
  • This item is up for approval at the owners meeting in Arizona this week.

Jets

  • Jets owner Woody Johnson is attending the NFL owners meetings with his brother Christopher Wold Johnson and team president Neil Glat.
  • Connor Hughes points out that the presence of Christopher and Glat could be an indication that they could take over day-to-day control of the Jets if and when Woody is named ambassador.

Packers

Packers president Mark Murphy singled out Aaron Rodgers, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Davante Adams as three players they will likely discuss extensions for in the next year or so.

Obviously Aaron is extremely important to the organization, and I know they have a plan for him,” Murphy said, via ESPN.com. “Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and you’ve got others, Davante Adams, that are coming up towards the end of their contracts as well.

In regards to some of the players they’ve lost in free agency, Murphy explained that they received offers beyond what they were willing to pay.

“You have to look at each player and what are you comfortable paying,” said Murphy, via wbay.com. “There were certain players that other teams were willing to pay more than we thought was reasonable.”

Panthers

Last night, a report surfaced that the Panthers could be the next team to be put up for sale. However, the Panthers have since released a statement, via Ian Rapoport, denying that the team will be for sale.

“Mr. Richardson is healthy, vigorous, happy and fully engaged in the business of the Carolina Panthers. The team is absolutely not for sale. These reports are based on a misinterpretation of an agenda item. No owner is more committed to his team than Mr. Richardson.

According to Rapoport, a Panthers limited partner who passed away is selling a small percentage of the team and this is on the agenda during the owners meeting.
