  • Kubiak said that they anticipate Talib arriving to their facility on Wednesday, but added: “Only thing I’m concerned about is his health.”
  • In regards to contract talks with franchise OLB Von Miller, Kubiak said they’re moving in a positive direction and he hopes to see Miller next week if possible. (Troy Renck)


Eagles HC Doug Pederson said he is “fully confident that something will be done before camp” in regards to a contract extension for DT Fletcher Cox.

“We want him to be in the meetings,” Pederson said, via “We want him to be in the walk through. We want him to get as many reps this week as he can. … Not being here, I don’t want to put him out there and risk injuries. He’s a big part of this football team. Now’s not the time to see what he can do, because he’s proven that.


Panthers HC Ron Rivera mentioned that he would love to have DT Kawann Short in attendance for the start of OTAs, but he isn’t considered about Short not reporting to the team at some point.

“You’d love to have everybody here, but again, this is voluntary,” Rivera said, via Bill Voth of Black and Blue Review. “The thing I appreciate, for the most part, everybody has told me what’s been going on  — with the exception of one person.”

“Because it’s voluntary, he decided not to come,” Rivera said. “It’s one of those things that he’s got to decide what he wants to do, and since it’s voluntary, we’re not too concerned about it. We’ll coach who’s here. . ..

“He’s under contract, so I’m not concerned with it. The truth of the matter is, you expect him to do the mandatory things, you expect him to be where he’s supposed to be.
