- Jason La Canfora takes a look at six contending teams that should consider trading for Browns LT Joe Thomas ahead of tomorrow’s deadline. La Canfora’s list includes the Cardinals, Broncos, Vikings, Colts, Seahawks and Giants.
- Peter King of TheMMQB.com would be “extremely surprised” to see the Browns trade Pro Bowl LT Joe Thomas by Tuesday’s deadline.
- King gets the sense from inside the Browns organization that trading either Thomas or CB Joe Haden would only add to an already barren-at-the-top franchise.
- King mentions that the Browns already have an extra first- and second-round picks next year as well as an extra seconder in 2018 to work with, so they have plenty of draft capital to continue rebuilding the team.
“I’m a little concerned about that,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of Church’s forearm injury. “We will have a little more medical information, but I am concerned about it short term.”
Claiborne injured his groin and is scheduled to undergo an MRI Monday to determine the severity.
“As of right now, I don’t know,” Claiborne said, via the Star-Telegram. “I’ll find out more about it tomorrow, so right now I don’t know. I know I pulled up on it and came out of the game. Right now, I’m walking, and we’ll figure out what it is tomorrow.”
Jets veteran WR Brandon Marshall mentioned that he would be “disappointed” if he was traded in the coming days.
“I would be disappointed if I was traded,” Marshall said on Sunday, via the New York Daily News. “I love it here. I want to finish what we started here with Coach [Todd] Bowles. But I don’t think that will happen.
“I want to finish what we started here,” Marshall added. “We’re not out of it. We’re going to continue to fight, rally the troops and continue to keep this team on the right track.”
