  • According to Mary Kay Cabot, North Carolina QB Mitch Trubisky is “on the Browns’ radar at No. 1 overall.

Jets

According to Brian Costello, the Jets are expected to be interested in Texans free agent CB A.J. Bouye.

Redskins

Redskins HC Jay Gruden mentioned that he’s “not going to blink” if they end up losing both DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon in free agency. Although, Gruden said he’s hoping they’ll both return next year.

“DeSean and Pierre had great years,” Gruden said, via ESPN.com. “Both 1,000 yards each. Those are going to be hard to replace. One thing I have to do is make sure we coach the guys we have. In free agency, you never sign everyone you want as a coach. I’d love to have Alshon Jeffery, Pierre and DeSean. What the heck. Give them all to me. I know that won’t happen.

“I’d love to have both back, I’d love to have one back. If we’re unfortunate to lose them both, I’m not going to blink.”

  • According to John Keim, there still hasn’t been any contact between the Redskins and Garcon.
  • Redskins president Bruce Allen said that GM Scot McCloughan is “dealing with family matters” and will return to work “just as soon as things are handled.” (Mike Jones)
