Browns

They don’t understand football, they don’t understand the locker room. They’re killing us.‘”

Cardinals

  • The Arizona Cardinals announced Monday that they’ve hired former Pro Bowl S Adrian Wilson as a scout.

Jets

  • Rich Cimini of ESPN writes that even with the recent acquisition of LT Ryan Clady, the Jets could still use a high pick on an offensive tackle.
  • Cimini mentions that an ideal candidate for the Jets would be a right tackle who has the athleticism to eventually transition to left tackle at some point.
  • Some names who could fit the Jets, according to Cimini, are Ohio State’s Taylor Decker and Texas A&M’s Germain Ifedi.
  • In regards to possibly re-signing QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, Cimini says that their offer to Fitz isn’t based on their available cap space and is actually higher than the $7 million-to-$8 million per year that has been reported.
