NFL Notes: Browns, Chiefs, Lions, Raiders & Steelers


  • Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com writes that Robert Griffin III is the clear frontrunner to start at quarterback in 2016.
  • Cabot goes on to say that on the first day of training camp, Griffin III received all of the first-team reps, while veteran Josh McCown worked exclusively with the second team.


  • According to Herbie Teope, the Chiefs worked out a couple of defensive backs on Saturday, including Bruce Dukes.
  • Teope notes that Dukes, a rookie from Georgia State, attended rookie minicamp with the Chiefs in May.


  • A Lions player who did not want to be identified told Justin Rogers of the Detroit News that he believes RB Theo Riddick could be next in line for an extension in a few weeks.
  • Riddick, 25, signed a four-year, $2.25 million deal with the Lions back in 2013,  and is set to be a free agent after the 2016 season. In 2015, Riddick finished with a career high 80 receptions for 697 yards.



Steelers GM Kevin Colbert addressed WR Antonio Brown‘s contract situation on the team’s Radio Network by explaining their policy to not renegotiate player’s contracts until they’re in the final year.

We don’t renegotiate contracts with more than one year remaining with the exception of quarterbacks. Antonio’s under contract,”  Colbert said, per Jeremy Fowler. “He’s a great player. You can’t say enough good things about him. But he’s a professional. He respects the process, as do we. We’ll see where things end up.”
