NFL Notes: Broncos, Buccaneers, Cowboys, Jets, & Seahawks

Broncos

Broncos WR Emmanuel Sanders recently mentioned that he believes QB Peyton Manning is coming back for the 2015 season, while discussing some of the changes the team has already undergone this offseason.

Well, [Adam] Gase is definitely in Chicago right now,” Sanders said, via NFL.com. “And Peyton says he’s going to come back, but I’m not really worried about it, I really just want to win a Super Bowl. So that is all that is on my mind.”

Buccaneers

  • According to Scott Reynolds of the PewterReport, the Buccaneers are expected to take either Oregon QB Marcus Mariota or Florida State QB Jameis Winston with the No. 1 overall pick.
  • Reynolds expects the Buccaneers to cut Anthony Collins and target a replacement at some point this offseason.
  • Veteran S Dashon Goldson is another player who is expected to be released, according to Reynolds.
  • Other players who could be released include defensive ends Michael Johnson and Adrian Clayborn.
  • The Buccaneers “appeared to be enamored” by Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett, Duke WR Jamison Crowder, and East Carolina WR Justin Hardy at the Senior Bowl this week.

Cowboys

Cowboys QB Tony Romo said that he’s been talking to owner Jerry Jonespretty consistently” about re-signing both WR Dez Bryant and RB DeMarco Murray this offseason.

“I think everybody understands how great these guys are and how lucky we are to have them,” Romo said during an interview with KESN-FM, via the Dallas Morning News. “Any time you get talented guys where you can put more than two on one side of the ball, you get three, four, if you’re lucky enough to ever get five, it’s one of those things where if you can put a group like that together you can make a run and be very difficult for teams to deal with for years. I think that’s what you’re trying to build ultimately is to have sustained success. We have an opportunity to have that.”

Jets

  • The Jets announced the hiring of Pepper Johnson as their new defensive line coach.

Seahawks

Seahawks GM John Schneider mentioned that re-signing impending free-agent CB Byron Maxwell is “one of our first priorities.

Yeah, it is. That quite frankly is one of our first priorities is to talk to Maxie,” Schneider said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times. “Now I think he like a lot of our other unrestricted guys, I think he is going to be highly sought after and he should be. But we would at least like to have the opportunity to retain him.’’
