NFL Rumors: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Draft, Bucs, Cardinals, & Redskins

Ryan Fitzpatrick

  • Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that negotiations are going nowhere between the Jets and free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
  • According to Florio, the Jets offered Fitzpatrick a backup quality contract and have yet to increase their offer.
  • In regards to the Broncos, Florio mentions that while they’ve shown interest in signing him, they’re clearly not at the point where they could get him under contract at any point in the near future

Draft

  • The 49ers were in attendance at Stanford’s Pro Day to observe QB Kevin Hogan, TE Austin Hooper and WR/TE Devon Cajuste. (Matt Barrows)
  • Tony Grossi reports that Browns executive Paul DePodesta attended Stanford’s Pro day to watch Hogan.
  • According to Chase Goodbread, Clemson DE Shaq Lawson has scheduled visits with the Panthers, 49ers and Cowboys.

Buccaneers

  • Greg Auman thinks it is unlikely for the Buccaneers to re-sign OLB Danny Lansanah for a lower salary than what his tender figure would have cost them and could see the team drafting a linebacker.

Cardinals

Darren Urban points out that although DT Calais Campbell is a candidate for extension, he is unlikely to negotiate with the Cardinals since he does not have an agent at this point in time.

Once I figure out what I want to do and tell (the team) things will probably move along,” Campbell said. “I haven’t really given them the chance, which kind of sucks. I feel bad. But it’s the way things have fallen together.”

Campbell is entering the final year of his contract and will have a $9.5 million base salary with a $15.25 million cap hit.

  • Recently signed G Evan Mathis says he will convert to right guard so Mike Iupati can continue on the left side. (Alex Marvez)
  • Mathis also said he contemplated retirement before signing with the Cardinals,  but decided to join the Cardinals because he thought they had a good chance at going to the Super Bowl. (Alex Marvez)
  • Mathis said he sustained a torn hamstring and high-ankle sprain during the 2015 season and required a scope this offseason. (Alex Marvez)

Redskins

  • According to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, the Redskins have Ohio State WR Michael Thomas as the No. 1 receiver of their draft board.
    Cole mentions that Washington really likes his combination of size and speed, as well as his competitiveness and love for the game.
  • Cole believes the Redskins could target Thomas as high as the first round or possibly in round two.
