AFC Notes: Jets, Patriots, Browns


  • ESPN’s Rich Cimini says with $102 million in cap space and pressure to make the playoffs, GM Mike Maccagnan could depart from some of his usual tenets in free agency, like paying a premium for a RB like Le’Veon Bell.  



  • According to ESPN’s Dan Graziano, OT Greg Robinson‘s extension has a $5.5 million base salary with a $500,000 signing bonus.  Robinson also has a $100,000 workout bonus, $400,000 total in per-game bonuses each time he’s active on gameday, and up to $500,000 in monthly weigh-in bonuses from April through December. 
  •’s Mary Kay Cabot says the Browns now have a multitude of options with the No. 17 overall pick in the first round, and could look at a DT like Clemson’s Christian Wilkins, Houston’s Ed Oliver or Mississippi State’s Jeffery Simmons
  • Cabot says WR Breshad Perriman will test the open market to set his price, as he and the Browns aren’t close on a deal.  There is a lot of interest on both sides for Perriman to return, though. 
  • The Browns are still waiting on word from the NFL about RB Kareem Hunt‘s suspension.  If Hunt’s suspension is lengthy, they’ll be less likely to trade RB Duke Johnson
  • Wyoming S Andrew Wingard could be a potential late-round target for the Browns, who met with him at the Shrine game.
