NFL Notes: 49ers, Patriots, Ravens, Redskins & Texans


  • Jason La Canfora suggested G Joe Staley could be the next player traded by the 49ers after the team sent TE Vernon Davis to the Broncos.
  • Staley signed an extension with the 49ers in July of 2014 that keeps him under contract through the 2019 season.


Patriots HC Bill Belichick said that they’re “always open to discussions” regarding trades with other teams.

“We’re always open to discussions. I think everybody in league probably knows our phone lines are open,” Belichick said, per Mike Reiss.

As for whether they could complete a deal before Tuesday’s deadline, Belichick said: “Who knows? It’s hard to tell. It takes two to make a deal. It has to be the right situation.” (Mike Reiss)


  • Ravens HC John Harbaugh said that he would not rule out them bringing in another receiver at some point in the near future.
  • Harbaugh told reporters WR Steve Smith did not give him an indication “one way or the other” whether he would play for the team in 2016.


  • A Redskins’ source tells John Keim that they’re unlikely to be active in regards to trades ahead of tomorrow’s deadline.
  • According to Keim, no one had called the Redskins about QB Robert Griffin III’s availability as of Sunday night.
  • Keim doesn’t see why Browns C Alex Mack would waive his no-trade clause to be traded to Washington, and would instead expect him to only do so for a contender.


  • Mark Berman reports that the Texans worked out RB Akeem Hunt on Monday.
