- Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald writes that the Dolphins made a mistake by not signing CB Sean Smith in free agency.
- Miami met with Smith’s representatives during the free agent period, but quickly made it clear that they weren’t interested in signing him.
- According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, it doesn’t sound like RB Khiry Robinson (broken leg) is close to returning based on comments made by HC Todd Bowles.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Patriots G Jonathan Cooper was diagnosed with a plantar fascia strain and is expected to be off his feet for a bit.
Seahawks HC Pete Carroll made it clear he has no plans stop coaching Seattle.
“I don’t even want to think that,” Carroll said, via Pro Football Talk. “There are no last stops, you just keep going. I know you guys are wondering if this is what 65 gets you. I am jacked up, I’m ready to go. Any other thought about that, if you guys are worried about being 65, well ok, look at me, it isn’t that bad. I think it is pretty fun. If I can help you guys out some I will be happy to.”
Carroll added that he doesn’t want to continue on without John Schneider in place as the team’s general manager.
“I don’t want to do this without John,” Carroll said. “I wanted to make sure there were no issues with that and so we saw [Schneider’s contract] through first and it took a while to get that done, it is extremely important. He is a tremendous partner, he is a great G.M., and he’s doing nothing but great stuff, that is all he’s done. We need to do this together. I knew I wasn’t going anywhere, I wanted to make sure we could get him in there and get this going.”
