NFL Notes: Dez Bryant, Cardinals, Patriots

Dez Bryant

Dez Bryant mentioned via his Twitter account on Sunday that he believes he would be a good fit for the Patriots and Redskins, but doesn’t think a return to the Cowboys is a good idea.

Cardinals

  • A source will knowledge of the situation tells Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk that the Cardinals and RB David Johnson‘s representatives were at an impasse in large part because the Cardinals refused to do a short-term extension.
  • However, the Cardinals changed their stance, which led to a three-year extension being finalized Saturday night.
  • Florio says Johnson’s new contract is a “no-brainer”, considering that Johnson will make $30 million over the next two years, which is $5 million more than if he played out his rookie contract and was franchised in back-to-back years.

Patriots

Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski was asked about the report that he told the team he would retire if they traded him.

“I was wondering why they asked me that on the field right after the game,” Gronkowski said, via Pro Football Talk. “I was like, ‘Where is this coming from again?’ No, I’m just glad to be here, glad to be part of this team, glad to be part of this organization and all that talk, all that stuff, I mean I would love to put it in the past. Whatever it is, whatever reports keep coming out because I’m here and I’m here to stay and I’m here to keep playing ball with the Patriots and just enjoying my time here.”
