ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler writes that the Browns should entertain the idea of trading for Vikings RB Adrian Peterson.
Fowler suggests parting with a second-round pick for Peterson and possibly reworking his contract to better facilitate a trade.
There are, of course, some obstacles in the way of any hypothetical Peterson trade such as the Vikings’ willingness to trade their best player, whether he’s even willing to play for a team like the Browns and the fact that they’re parting with draft picks and paying big money to a running back that’s already in his thirties.
Jaguars HC Gus Bradley said they remain in a “holding pattern” in regards to free agent C Stefen Wisniewski.
“We will have more conversations about him, but right now we are in a holding period,” Bradley said of Wisniewski, per Ryan O’Halloran.
The Lions released a statement regarding the comments made by Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti about possibly re-signing DT Haloti Ngata in free agency next year, per Tim Twentyman.
It sounds like Detroit has no intention of filing tampering charges.
“The Ravens have reached out to us concerning the comments made yesterday by Steve Bisciotti regarding Haloti Ngata. We appreciate both the Ravens’ professionalism and the context in which Mr. Bisciotti’s statements were made. We consider the matter to be a non-issue.”
