NFL Notes: Jets, Packers, Texans, & Vikings

Jets

Rich Cimini of ESPN New York believes the Jets will end up with a top-five draft pick once the season has concluded.

Cimini mentions that a quarterback, wide receiver and cornerback could all be in play for their first-round pick next year.

Packers

Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel writes that the Green Bay Packers should entertain the idea of trading one of their cornerbacks before Sunday’s deadline.

McGinn specifically mentions that Davon House, Casey Hayward and Micah Hyde as three players GM Ted Thompson should consider parting with if the right offer is presented to him.

A personnel director for an NFL team said that Hayward is the most appealing player of this group and the Packers could likely get a second-round pick for him. House, on the other hand, may only net the Packers a conditional pick in the fourth round that could improve to a third-round selection.

Texans

  • HC Bill O’Brien said that rookie OLB Jadeveon Clowney has a “good shot” to play in Week 8, but they will keep him on “a pitch count.

“I thought what he did what he had to do this week,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I think he’s got a good shot to play on Sunday.

Vikings

Ben Goessling of ESPN writes that WR Greg Jennings and LB Chad Greenway may have to restructure their contracts to be back with the team next season.

Goessling mentions that the Vikings stand to gain $7.1 million by cutting Greenway and another $9 million by releasing Jennings.
