Citing a person familiar with the situation, Cimini reports that there was some early friction between Jets HC Adam Gase and GM Mike Maccagnan and new DC Gregg Williams over the hire of Williams’ son, Blake, to the defensive staff.
Cimini confirmed a previous report that the Jets will have no interest in RB Kareem Hunt.
According to Cimini, the Jets had interest in trading for Rams DE Dante Fowler at the deadline this year and will likely pursue him if he becomes available in free agency.
The Patriots were one of the teams inquiring about CB Aqib Talib last offseason, per Rapoport. Sources say the team’s offer was likely a sixth-round pick, while the Rams acquired Talib from the Broncos for a fifth.
Patriots owner Robert Kraft says he’s trying to live in the moment with his team’s unique run of success: “I don’t think we’ll ever replicate this. I don’t think it’ll be replicated anywhere. And I’m proud and happy that our family has been able to nurture it and be at the helm here. But I’m gonna enjoy it. I’m gonna enjoy every moment of it. And we’ll try to keep it going as long as we can. But we do have to be thinking about plans, which you think about anyhow, because this is a game where, in one play, things can change.”
