49ers

  • Purdy adds that San Francisco is comfortable allocating this much money to two quarterbacks.

Redskins

  • Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic writes that USC QB Cody Kessler looks like a good backup plan for the Redskins if they’re looking for a developmental prospect.

Seahawks

Seattle GM John Schneider mentioned during a radio interview with ESPN 710 Seattle Tuesday morning that he does not expect S Kam Chancellor to hold out for a new contract again this year.

No, I wouldn’t think so,” Schneider said, via Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.

  • In regards to their moves to improve their offensive line, Schneider explained that they did not make a conscious decision spend less on the offensive line, but that’s just the way things ultimately worked out.
  • Schneider did, however, say that they’re not done adding players to their offensive line, saying: “it’s just a matter of constantly trying to address that position, I should say, and it never stops. So we addressed it earlier in free agency, we’ll address it again in this draft and then we’ll see what’s happening this summer.
