NFL Notes: Los Angeles, Colts, Eagles, & Jets


Los Angeles

Jason Cole of B/R spoke to five NFL owners who said that if they had to decide right now, they would like to see a marriage of the Chargers and Rams respective plans to move to Los Angles in Inglewood.

The owners continued to stress that the Chargers are the most deserving of the three teams to relocate to Los Angeles. However, Cole stresses that this is a “very, very fluid situation.”

With this in mind, Cole mentions that the Raiders could still impact the owners preference for L.A. by selling a portion of the team to another investor.

Yesterday, Cole reported that Raiders owner Mark Davis could sell off a portion of his team to an L.A. investor at some point in the near future, which could go along way towards changing the owners perception of how success the Raiders can be in Los Angeles.


  • Mike Chappell expects the Colts to sign veteran RB Ahmad Bradshaw to a contract in the coming days.
  • Chappell mentions that signing him for today’s game would have been a reach.


Eagles ILB Kiko Alonso told reporters on Thursday that he knew he didn’t tear his ACL based on the fact that he’s done so twice in the past.

Instead, Alonso said that the procedure was just a “cleaning,” but did not offer a timetable for his return.

“I knew it wasn’t that bad, because obviously I’ve had it twice,” Alonso said, via the Philadelphia Inquirer. “It didn’t feel like that. I knew I didn’t have it.

“They went in there and cleaned it out,” Alonso explained. “… Like when you take a car for a clean.”


Rich Cimini of ESPN writes that OLB Quinton Coples‘ lack of playing time could impact his future with the Jets.

Cimini points out that Coples played just 15 of 64 defensive snaps in their Week 4 win over the Dolphins.

New York picked up Coples’ fifth-year option for 2016, which will run them $7.8 million. However, this salary is guaranteed for injury only as of now, and the Jets could move on before it’s fully guaranteed, given that Coples now has a limited role in the team’s defense.
