NFL Notes: Cardinals, Colts, Jets, Redskins

Cardinals

  • Josh Weinfuss of ESPN writes that the Cardinals quarterback of the future could be left for a new coach to decide if HC Bruce Arians and Carson Palmer end their careers together.
  • If the Cardinals promote internally for their next head coach, then there is a “chance” for Drew Stanton being kept on as the team’s next starting quarterback.
  • Weinfuss mentions that things to consider about Stanton are that he is 33-years old, has only started 13 games and has played in just 33 games in 10 seasons.

Colts

  • The Colts are hopeful that S Clayton Geathers (neck) will return “sooner or later“, but there is no exact timetable for his return, according to Mike Wells of ESPN.
  • Wells writes that first-round S Malik Hooker (hernia/hip) is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.
  • Wells expects Geathers and Hooker to start at both safety spots if they are healthy for Week 1 of the regular season. However, Wells could see S T.J. Green starting if one of the players aren’t ready.

Jets

  • Rich Cimini of ESPN could see the Jets bringing in a new regime that would want to draft their own quarterback of the future if they go 1-15 this season.
  • However, if they finish 8-8, Cimini writes that would “probably” warrant a vote of confidence in QBs Christian Hackenberg or Bryce Petty.
  • If the Jets finish the season with the No. 6 overall pick and want to trade up to at least No. 3 to acquire a top quarterback, Cimini expects the team would have to at least trade their second- and fourth-round picks in addition to the No. 6 pick.
  • Though Cimini believes the price to trade up could increase, he does not think a higher price would prohibit the Jets from moving up.
  • According to Cimini, the Jets have spoken to one of the Raiders, Buccaneers, or Colts about trading DE Sheldon Richardson. However, the issue with a potential Richardson trade is his $8 million salary.

Redskins

  • According to John Keim of ESPN, the Redskins will not convert OLBs Trent Murphy or Preston Smith to defensive end.
  • Although Keim writes that Murphy could play end if the team needs him to and LB Junior Galette is “healthy and looks good.”
  • As for Smith playing defensive end, Keim writes there’s “no reason” for him to switch positions since he has not played there up this point in his NFL career.
