Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff referred to the talk of them possibly trading RB Devonta Freeman as “ridiculous.”
“(That’s) ridiculous, asserting that we would trade Freeman,” Dimitroff told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The speculation stems from Luther Campbell, who happens to be the husband of Freeman’s agent, Kristen Campbell.
Jaguars GM Dave Caldwell mentioned that they’re still looking for potential offensive line upgrades but they still feel pretty good about their current unit.
“I think we are always looking to upgrade,” Caldwell said, via ESPN.com. “We added a two-time Pro Bowler at left tackle [Albert], Brandon Linder at center, a young A.J. Cann who is still ascending, [and] Jermey Parnell played well towards the end of the season when he was healthy. We have great competition at left guard right now and guys that have played.
“We went from Year 1 giving up 70-plus sacks [73 in 2014] and last year we gave up 34 sacks. We are always looking to upgrade, but we can line up tomorrow.”
Free agent G T.J. Lang said Monday that he was “99% sure” he was signing with the Seahawks before the Lions came back with a counter offer.
“I didn’t know Detroit was coming back with a counter offer,” Lang said in an interview with 97.1-FM today, via the Detroit Free Press. “When I left Seattle I was about 99% sure I was flying back there to sign a contract and Detroit stepped up and things changed pretty quick.”
