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.
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.
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.
- 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.”
Goessling mentions that the Vikings stand to gain $7.1 million by cutting Greenway and another $9 million by releasing Jennings.
- LB Gerald Hodges (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 8.
