Draft

Buccaneers

  • According to PewterReport.com, the Buccaneers are still talking with free agent S Chris Conte and he could end up being their next signing.

Giants

  • Jordan Raanan believes the Giants are more likely to sign Russell Okung than Donald Penn. Although, Raanan expects Penn to get paid by some team.
  • Raanan mentions that it would be a tough sell for the Giants to try to convince Okung to move to right tackle so they can keep Ereck Flowers on the left side.
  • In regards to free agent ILB Jerrell Freeman being an option for the Giants, Raanan says he hasn’t heard anything and has a hard time believing it’s a serious option.

Lockette is rehabbing in Seattle and his plan for now “heal up and get back to it.
