- Paul Schwartz of the New York Post writes that there’s no doubt the Giants want to sign a veteran offensive tackle, which explains the interest they’ve shown in Russell Okung, Donald Penn, Jake Long and Eugene Monroe.
- However, the issue for the Giants comes down to their preference to keep Ereck Flowers at left tackle, as opposed to moving him to right tackle.
Panthers S Kurt Coleman said he isn’t worrying about his contract, and instead trusts that both sides will agree to do the right thing in the end.
“I respect everyone that’s involved in the process and I’m trusting that both sides are going to do what’s right and what’s fair,” Coleman said, via the Charlotte Observer. “Honestly, it’s out of my hands. My job isn’t to negotiate. I probably wouldn’t be that good at it. My personal feelings might get (involved). I just control what I can control.”
Coleman added that he’s still hopeful they can get something done before the start of the season.
“Who wouldn’t? But there’s a whole business side of things,” Coleman said. “I’ve been around this game long enough to know if it doesn’t get done, I still have to go out and perform.”
Titans HC Mike Mularkey said first-round pick Jack Conklin’s performance during offseason workouts has been “pretty smoothly.”
“It’s gone pretty smoothly with Jack,” Mularkey said, via the Tennessean. “You don’t say a lot to Jack. You’re not hearing his name called out a lot. He’s just very steady. He knows he’s got some time, not a lot, but I think he’s made the move over there pretty good.”
As for sixth-round pick Sebastian Tretola, Mularkey said he’s been a little “overly aggressive” and has “some room to go” in his development.
“He’s got some room to go,” Mularkey said. “He’s got to watch his aggression. He’s too overly aggressive trying to get into guys. He can’t do that. He has to use his hands a little better than he’s been using them.”
