NFL Notes: Cowboys, Giants, Steelers


  • Todd Archer says that the Cowboys will eventually honor Tony Romo at some point, but they may wait until he officially decides to retire or at least finishes his first season with CBS.
  • Archer says it’s possible the Cowboys could use rookie WR Ryan Switzer and Cole Beasley much like the Patriots have used Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola together the past few years.


Giants owner John Mara said that they didn’t discuss the possibility of signing free agent QB Colin Kaepernick this offseason because so many fans contacted them about how angry they would be about the move.

“All my years being in the league, I never received more emotional mail from people than I did about that issue,” Mara said, via Jenny Vrentas of “If any of your players ever do that, we are never coming to another Giants game. It wasn’t one or two letters. It was a lot. It’s an emotional, emotional issue for a lot of people, moreso than any other issue I’ve run into.”


Steelers first-round OLB T.J. Watt said he thinks OTAs has gone “really well” for him and it’s helped to work with some of the veteran players.

“I think it’s going really well. I think it’s been a lot easier with the older guys here,” Watt said, via “They kinda brought me in under their wing. Bud’s been helping me a lot. James Harrison has been helping me a lot too. Just being in a good group of guys as a team and as an outside linebacker room has helped me quite a bit.

Watt added that having the veterans around this past week has been great for getting a real feel of how things will be this summer.

It’s night and day. It really is night and day just because everyone knows what they’re doing,” Watt said. “Rookie minicamp a lot of guys are trying to get their feet wet and just try to feel out and not make mistakes but here, these guys know what they’re doing. They’re flying around making plays so I mean you got to adjust quicker but I feel like I was built for this and that’s why I feel like I’m adjusting pretty well.”
