NFL Notes: Draft, Jets, Raiders, Seahawks

Draft

  • Cal QB Davis Webb tells Pro Football Talk that the Chiefs, Jets, and Seahawks have brought him in for a visit and the 49ers worked him out.
  • The Vikings met with TCU OL Aviante Collins at the Combine and he could be an intriguing option for them later on in this year’s draft. (Darren Wolfsen)

Jets

  • Jets GM Mike Maccagnan wouldn’t say if DE Sheldon Richardson will or won’t be traded during the upcoming draft, but they plan to explore everything. (Connor Hughes)
  • Maccagnan declined to say whether they plan to pick up or decline their fifth-year option on S Calvin Pryor. (Brian Costello)
  • Maccagnan downplayed their interest in quarterback prospects and added that he doesn’t know if there will be a year they won’t evaluate all of the available quarterbacks. (Connor Hughes)
  • Maccagnan said he likes where they’re sitting at No. 6 overall. Although they’ve fielded made calls about potential trades, as they do every year. (Connor Hughes)

Raiders

Vic Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Raiders have no plans to pay veteran RB Marshawn Lynch more than $3 million per year plus incentives while Lynch is looking for something closer to $4.5 million for the 2017 season, which is half of what he would make under his current contract.

According to Tafur, the Raiders have done their due diligence on Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon and GM Reggie McKenize met with him twice in March.

We thought he was a really good kid. He came off very well and explained each and everything, the questions that we had,” McKenzie said last Friday. “He had an explanation and he was up front about everything. The kid really came across as a good kid.”

Tafur adds that Oklahoma’s Samaje Perine, Texas’ D’Onta Foreman, and Toledo’s Kareem Hunt could be mid-round options for the Raiders this week.

Seahawks

  • In regards to the Marshawn Lynch situation, Schneider mentioned there’s no real update right now and confirmed that the Raiders would like to have an answer before the draft from Lynch. (Curtis Crabtree)
  • Schneider said that newly signed DL Dion Jordan is “a littler heavier” right now than he used to be, but they think he can help their defensive line as an interior pass rusher. (Curtis Crabtree)
