According to SI.com’s Mike Fisher, a source said the Cowboys have not made a “recent bid” for S Jamal Adams, who was traded to the Seahawks from the Jets.
The NFL and NFLPA are discussing a 2021 salary cap floor of $175 million, which is down from the $198.2 million this year. It’s possible that the figure could be pushed higher, depending on the revenue losses incurred by the league from the 2020 season.
NJ.com’s Mike Kaye writes Eagles LBs Nathan Gerry, T.J. Edwards and third-round rookie Davion Taylor are the only roster locks heading into camp.
Kaye says Gerry is projected as a three-down starter, while Edwards is the favorite to start at middle linebacker, at least on rushing downs. Taylor is viewed as a long-term project and could be limited to special teams as a rookie.
Kaye mentions the Eagles could keep just five linebackers on the final roster, with Duke Riley, Alex Singleton, free agent Jatavis Brown and sixth-round rookie Shaun Bradley competing for the final two or three slots.
Brown’s $910,000 salary is the highest of the entire linebacker group, per Kaye, but if he can’t beat out Edwards for the middle linebacker spot, he’s not a lock to make the team.
Per SNY’s Ralph Vacchiano, nothing official has been decided regarding Giants CB Deandre Baker and he’s still proceeding as if he will report to camp on Tuesday.
Vacchiano says the commissioner’s exempt list is a possibility for Baker as he waits for a resolution to charges for alleged armed robbery.
