  • Bills released WR Jordan Veasy from their practice squad.


  • Per the Miami Herald’s Barry Jackson, the Dolphins say they spoke to the representative for RB Kenyan Drake regarding an extension but talks went nowhere. Drake is now available for a draft pick. 
  • According to ESPN’s Cameron Wolfe, Drake says he has not had any in-season extension talks with Miami’s front office. 
  • The Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero believes the Dolphins can get a sixth-round pick at most for Drake. 
  • Drake said he’s going to focus on playing well wherever he is, whether it’s Miami or another team if he’s traded: “Then I’m going to have to be where my feet are and put my best foot forward, wherever that may be. I understand the business side of this. With that being the case. With wherever we are things may happen. People shift different teams. The thing is as I have played this game and seen it first-hand.” (Joe Schad)
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer mentions Dolphins WR DeVante Parker as a potential trade candidate. 


Jets HC Adam Gase praised LB C.J. Mosley‘s ability to “get his hands on the ball” and has high-football intelligence. 

“Obviously he’s a dynamic playmaker and he gets his hands on the ball,” Gase said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY. “But he cleans up a lot of things. He can mask a lot of errors. He’s a very intelligent player. He’s seen a lot of football. So he sees things coming that young guys don’t.”

Regarding Mosley’s groin injury, Gase said they evaluating him “minute-to-minute” and that he is an important defensive player. 

“I think we’re just taking this minute-to-minute,” said Gase. “At the end of the day, that’s one of our captains.” 

  • Mosley, who’s been out since Week 1 with a groin injury, told reporters “I’m playing Monday night,” per the Athletic’s Connor Hughes.
  • According to ESPN’s Rich Cimini, Jets DT Steve McLendon‘s one-year extension includes $3.1 million in new money, part of which is a $653,000 signing bonus. 
  • McLendon has a $1.25 million base salary in 2020, $750,000 guaranteed for injury and fully guaranteed on the fifth day of the 2020 league year. McLendon also has a $1 million roster bonus due on that date. He will count $2.8 million against the cap. 
  • Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer mentions Jets WR Robby Anderson as a potential trade candidate given his contract is up following this season and he’ll be expensive for New York to keep. 


  • According to ESPN’s Mike Reiss, Patriots TE Ben Watson‘s new one-year deal includes $800,000 guaranteed out of a total of $1.236 million. Watson can also make $200,000 in incentives.
