NFL Notes: Connor Cook, Fred Jackson, Cowboys, & Patriots


Connor Cook

  • Jason Cole of B/R mentions that this could be a “critical week” for Michigan State QB Connor Cook because he’s viewed a somewhat selfish player and not a leader.
  • A few executives have told Cole that they view Cook as a prospect with a first-round arm, but a third-round personality.
  • Cole adds that interviews will be a big key for Cook at the Combine, as this will give him an opportunity to show teams this is a false image.

Fred Jackson


Ed Werder of ESPN reported Monday that the Cowboys’ coaching staff doesn’t view QB Robert Griffin III’s skill set as a good fit for their offensive scheme.

“Not a lot of people in Dallas think he’s a great fit in Jason Garrett’s offense, and I’m told that Scott Linehan, the offensive coordinator, is really not a fan of RGIII’s and doesn’t think he would excel with what the Cowboys would ask him to do,” Werder said, via Pro Football Talk.

  • A team source tells Ed Werder that “no final decision” has been made regarding the Cowboys moving on from impending free agent DE Greg Hardy.


  • According to Mike Reiss of ESPN, restricted free agent FB James Develin is part of the Patriots’ offseason plans and they’re interested in re-signing him.
  • Reiss mentions that the Pats are willing to tender Develin at the lowest level, it run them $1.6 million on a one-year deal. However, this could open the door for an extension if this is the kind of salary they’re willing to offer him.
