NFL Notes: Browns, Cowboys, Eagles, Jets, Vikings

Browns

Cowboys

Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones mentioned that it will be up to his father, Jerry, and Tony Romo to figure out what’s going to happen with the veteran quarterback in the coming months.

“I’m sure as we move forward, obviously, there’s two really important people in this mix,” Stephen Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “First and foremost will be Jerry and then, of course, Tony. I read where Jason said his wish is that Tony, whatever happens here, is happy. I’m sure most people feel that way. At the same time, we all know we’re in a business. It’s something here that will be, obviously, handled with, if you will, kid gloves. And something that we’ll work through and when we’re ready to have any comments about it, I know Jerry and Tony will be the ones to do that.

Eagles

  • Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice takes a look at five more draft prospects worth watching for the Eagles in this year’s draft.
  • Kempski’s latest article includes Western Kentucky OL Forrest Lamp, Utah G Isaac Asiata, Texas A&M DE Daeshon Hall, Troy OT Antonio Garcia, and UCLA DE Takkarist McKinley.

Jets

  • Rich Cimini would be “stunned” if the Jets showed any interest at all in free agent QB Johnny Manziel following his recent comments that he’s sober and looking to return to the NFL.
  • While Cimini considers LSU RB Leonard Fournette and Dalvin Cook to be very intriguing prospects for the Jets to consider, he mentions that using a first-round pick on either would leave them with a crowded backfield.
  • Cimini wouldn’t rule out the Jets taking Clemson WR Mike Williams with their No. 1 pick, given that they could still use a game-changing player.
  • In regards to taking a safety prospect in the first-round Cimini isn’t sure that this would be the best use of their pick, considering how many other needs they have.

Vikings

  • Bruce Feldman reports that UCLA is hiring Vikings assistant offensive line coach Hank Fraley as their new offensive line coach.
