NFL Rumors: Josh Gordon, Draft, Bucs, Dolphins & Redskins

Josh Gordon

  • Mary kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer expects the Browns to move on from Josh Gordon following news today that his petition for reinstatement was denied by the NFL.
  •  According to Cabot, Gordon will likely get another chance with a different team, but the Browns may not want to deal with anymore distractions after they’ve already moved on from QB Johnny Manziel.
  • Cabot mentions that Gordon has coaching ties to the Broncos, Colts and Vikings in the event he becomes available.


  • Ohio State WR/QB Braxton Miller said 10 teams came to his school to watch his workouts, while more teams have him playing as an outside receiver instead of the slot position, via SiriusXM NFL Radio.
  • Aaron Wilson reports that Houston OL Alex Cooper visited the Raiders on Tuesday.

  • Toledo DE Allen Covington performed during the Buccaneers local prospect day. (Greg Auman)
  • Auburn OL Devonte Danzey also worked out at Tampa Bay’s local prospect day. (Greg Auman)
  • Auman believes it is unlikely for the Buccaneers to draft a linebacker during the first two days of the draft, since Lavonte David and Kwon Alexander are anticipated to receive the majority of defensive snaps in 2016.


  • Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports the Dolphins have requested to meet with at least nine cornerbacks at their headquarters, including: Ohio State’s Eli Apple, Houston’s William Jackson III, Miami’s Artie Burns, Baylor’s Xavien Howard, Samford’s James Bradberry, LSU’s Rashard Robinson, FAU’s Cre’von LeBlanc, North Carolina Central’s Ryan Smith and USC’s Kevon Seymour.
  • According to Jackson, the Dolphins also like Clemson DB TJ Green, who can play as a safety and cornerback.


Although Redskins DE Chris Baker said he would like a contract extension from Washington, he is not in a rush to get a deal done.

I would love to have [an extension],” Baker said, via John Keim of ESPN. “But I’ll let the business take care of the business and do what I’ve always done and that’s play hard and play effectively and make plays. When it’s time to talk contract, we’ll get that done.”

Additionally, Baker said he is not interested in playing nose tackle and hopes to continue at left end for the duration of the 2016 season.

I’ve solidified myself as a good left end,” said Baker. “So I’d like to stay at my position and use my athleticism to make plays. I’m willing to do what it takes to make sure the team wins, but hopefully they leave me at left end and use the other noses we have or some of the younger guys we’re going to draft. Hopefully we pick up some guys who pick up the system and leave me at end so I don’t have to go back down and take on those double-teams.
