- John Wawrow is still hearing that the Bills haven’t made a decision regarding QB Tyrod Taylor‘s option.
- Wawrow adds that the supposed rift between the two parties is overblown.
- Mike Klis of 9 News reports that the Broncos have done “substantial homework” on Cowboys QB Tony Romo and are expected to be among his suitors if he’s released.
- According to Klis, there was some buzz going around at the Combine that the Texans are also likely to be players for Romo.
- Klis mentions that the Broncos are looking for help at right guard but Kevin Zeitler, who is expected to command around $11 million per year, is probably too costly for them. Klis adds that T.J. Lang could be had for around $9 million per year.
- In regards to the defensive tackle position, Klis believes they could go with a “budget player” and use their money elsewhere
- According to Klis, the Broncos have Cardinals free agent DE Calais Campbell “high on their wish list.” The problem for Denver is that he’s looking for around $14.25M per year.
- A more reasonable option for the Broncos, according to Klis, could be Ravens free agent DE Lawrence Guy.
In regards to the rumored three-team trade possibility between the 49ers, Cowboys and Redskins, owner Jerry Jones there’s “nothing factual in any way,” about it.
“Nothing factual in any way,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “Haven’t had that discussion with anyone, most of all Romo. And so any of these things that you might see that represents interest or looks like it will be a fit or those kinds of things, all of those have no basis at this point other than just a thought of the different teams or different people that are involved and I wouldn’t have any consideration or comment or speculate on what might fit because I don’t think that anyone has that feeling at this particular point, the timing.”
Jones reiterated that they plan to “do right” by Tony Romo this offseason.
“It is implied that we will work in the best way we can for the mutual interest of Tony and the Cowboys. That was just implied,” Jones said. “That’s important here. Now we’ve got to abide by every league rule. We can’t have agreements without it being within the boundaries of the NFL. But when you’ve got a situation like we got, we’ll do the do-right rule. That’s it. That is it. Very important. We do the do-right rule. We have that kind of relationship.”
- Ryan O’Halloran suggests Prince Amukamara, A.J. Bouye, Stephon Gilmore, Logan Ryan and Brandon Carr as potential candidates for them to target in free agency. O’Halloran predicts that if Bouye doesn’t re-sign with Houston, Jacksonville will give him $30 million guaranteed.
- As for strong safety, O’Halloran considers Johnathan Cyprien, Barry Church, Tony Jefferson, Jahleel Addae and T.J. McDonald as names to watch. If the Jaguars lose Cyprien, O’Halloran believes they could wait to address the position in the draft, possibly at No. 4 overall.
- Some potential defensive end options for Jaguars could include Tyson Alualu, Calais Campbell, Jabaal Sheard, Jack Crawford and Devin Taylor. O’Halloran predicts they’ll sign Campbell and bring back Alualu on a two-year deal.
- In regards to the left guard position, O’Halloran predicts they’ll bring back Patrick Omameh, as opposed to signing one of the top names.
