NFL Notes: Trades, Giants, Patriots, & Redskins




  • Mike Reiss writes that the Patriots appear to be set to “phase out 3-technique tackles on their roster while focusing more on bigger, stouter tackles.”
  • This helps to explain why they parted ways with Chris Jones and Dominique Easley last week.
  • Reiss mentions that the Patriots could consider drafting a a developmental offensive tackle like Auburn’s Shon Coleman this year.


  • According to Rich Tandler, it’s seem inevitable that the Redskins will eventually release WR Andre Roberts and possibly Adam Hayward at some point. Doing so would create around $3 million in cap space.
  • One other notable roster cut, according to Tandler, could be LB Perry Riley, who would free up $4 million in cap room if released. However, Tandler says that Washington is learning toward keeping him to maintain depth at the position.
