- Kurt Wagner of Recode, citing two sources familiar with the process, reports that Facebook, Amazon, Twitter and Google’s YouTube have all submitted proposals to the NFL regarding the streaming rights for their “Thursday Night Football” package.
- All of these companies showed interest in this package of games last year, but Twitter managed to come out on top by bidding $10 million for 10 games.
- Wagner expects the NFL to have a decision at some point in the next month or so.
- California QB Davis Webb mentioned that he has visits and workouts with at least 12 teams lined up and “double-digit” teams consider him to be a “first-round talent.” (Eric Branch)

- Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com takes a look at three draft prospects that would make sense for the Eagles to consider trading up for in round one.

- Ryan O’Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports that the NFLPA is investigating the Jaguars for a violation of the collective bargaining agreement.
- According to O’Halloran, Jaguars executive Tom Coughlin sent a letter to several players under contract saying that they were required to take a physical in Jacksonville this March. However, Jaguars’ players are barred from being at the team’s facility until April 10.
- An agent of one of the Jaguars’ players notified the NFLPA about Coughlin’s letter.
- Potential punishment, according to one of O’Halloran’s sources, could include the loss of an OTA workout this spring.
- For what it’s worth, this is the second time the NFLPA has looked into a situation involving the Jaguars since Coughlin was hired.
