NFL Notes: Broncos, Falcons, Jets & Packers

  • Vaughn McClure doesn’t think anything is imminent right now, but he could see the Falcons re-sign OLB O’Brien Schofield before considering signing DE Dwight Freeney.
  • McClure mentions that the Falcons know what they could get out of each player and  Schofield’s vocal locker room presence is an added bonus.


  • Ian Rapoport reports that it doesn’t appear as though there will be a deal in place between the Jets and QB Ryan Fitzpatrick before the start of camp.


Packers HC Mike McCarthy mentioned that RB Eddie Lacyis ready” and he has no plans to discuss his weight beyond this.

“Eddie is ready,” McCarthy said, via Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I’m done talking about people’s weight. I felt like I gave an honest answer.

  • Packers WR Jordy Nelson told reporters that he’s on PUP because he tweaked his other knee while working out: “It’s not the ACL. No one needs to freak out.” (Mike Garafolo)
  • Clay Matthews said that he’s unsure if he’ll speak with NFL regarding the PED allegations. Matthews added that he’s relying in part on counsel from the NFLPA and has nothing to hide. (Jim Trotter)
  • As for Julius Peppers, he said that he probably speak to the NFL: “I’m not sure. Letting the Players Association handle that. Probably will.” (Ryan Wood)
