NFL Notes: Draft, Giants, Raiders, & Patriots


  • Indiana RB Tevin Coleman has visits scheduled with the Ravens, Panthers and Cardinals, according to Aaron Wilson.



Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie reiterated Saturday night that they are not pursuing free agent DE Greg Hardy.

At this point we don’t have any intentions of doing anything with him,” McKenzie said, via Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area. “His situation is a delicate one. He has something ongoing with the league also. Anything we do (regarding Hardy) is about information gathering, like we do with all the players.”


  • According to Mike Reiss, there is a “strong belief” that once the Jets got involved in bidding for CB Darrelle Revis, it was over for the Patriots.
  • Reiss mentions that waiting until last moment to lock up S Devin McCourty to a massive extension could have been prevented had they spoke to him during the year. Reiss believes they could have got McCourty under contract for something like $7.5 to $8 million per year, rather than the $9.5 million he signed for last week.
  • Reiss believes the Patriots should consider trading for Saints CB Keenan Lewis, if he is in fact available. Reiss suggests offering a late second-round draft pick.
  • Reiss gets the sense that the Patriots coaching staff viewed WR Brandon Gibson as the Dolphins best receiver, which is why they got him under contract early on in free agency.
  • The Patriots’ interest in veteran receiver Stevie Johnson is “real,”according to Reiss.
