NFL Notes: Bears, Patriots, Raiders & Saints


  • Adam Schefter points out that Bears QB Jay Cutler has no guaranteed money left on his contract and Chicago would only take a $2 million salary cap hit by releasing him next year.
  • The Bears would pick up $13 million in salary-cap space should they cut him loose.
  • Of course, Chicago would be without a quarterback and need to find someone either in free agency or the draft.


  • According to Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, QB Jimmy Garoppolo is still in a “tremendous amount of pain” due to his AC joint sprain in his right shoulder.
  • Volin says that Garoppolo still has trouble lifting his arm, and has been saying all week that he’s too sore to play tonight.
  • Volin reports that TE Rob Gronkowski has been telling teammates all week that he plans to make his 2016 season debut Thursday against the Texans.


  • According to the Associated Press, another milestone was reached in regards to potentially the Raiders possibly relocating to Las Vegas with Governor Brian Sandoval signaling support for the project. Sandoval plans to call Nevada lawmakers into a special session next month to discuss a public financing plan.
  • Governor Sandoval said he spoke with Raiders owner Mark Davis and felt that Davis was “committed and resolute in the team’s interest in relocating to our state.
  • Three-quarters of the NFL owners would need to approve any team relocation with a vote potentially coming during the owner’s meetings in January.


  • Saints HC Sean Payton referred to the concussions sustained by CB P.J. Williams as: “one of the most severe concussions I have seen.”
  • Payton added that Williams was knocked out for a longer period of time than what they’re used to seeing. (Nick Underhill)
