NFL Notes: Los Angeles, 49ers, Cowboys, Jets, & Texans

Los Angeles

  • Jason Cole of B/R reports that everything is still “very, very fluid” in regards to the NFL’s plans to relocate one or more teams to Los Angeles.
  • However, Cole mentions that momentum appears to be building for a partnership between the Chargers and Rams. According to Cole, there’s a good amount of “anti-Raiders sentiment” within the owners because they would prefer to not see them end up in L.A.
  • There’s also some sentiment growing towards a modern solution for the Raiders in Oakland, which would be a moderate sized stadium similar to what the Seahawks got in Seattle.


49ers QB Colin Kaepernick had surgery on his right thumb and left knee in Vail, Colo., on Wednesday, according to Matt Barrows.

Kaepernick had reportedly been complaining about pain and swelling in his knee for the past few months, which explains why he had the arthroscopic procedure performed.

Barrows mentions that doctors removed “floating bodies” in the joint, drained it and flushed it.

49ers CEO Jed York said of Kaepernick: “I love Colin. He’s been a great piece of this team for a long time. He has certainly helped us get to the level of success that we’ve had. I’m not going to make any decisions on players. A new head coach is going to come in here. He’s going to evaluate the roster. Right now, I want to make sure that Colin gets back healthy.”


  • Dane Brugler mentions that the most important reason for the Cowboys to coach this year’s Senior Bowl is likely to get a good look at North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz.
  • Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford announced via his Twitter account that he is expected to have shoulder surgery on Thursday.


  • Jets impending free agent DL Muhammad Wilkerson underwent surgery to repair the broken leg he suffered during Week 17’s game.
  • According to Brian Costello, Wilkerson’s surgery went well and he is expected to make a full recovery.
