NFL Notes: Bengals, Browns, Cardinals, Eagles, Giants & Lions


  • HC Marvin Lewis told reporters that he would like to draft a return specialist that can double as a wide receiver.

That’s an area we would always like to fill,” Lewis said, via Coley Harvey. “Darren [Simmons] ends up sometimes being a little frustrated about that because we don’t quite end up getting that filled as well as we maybe could.”

  • Harvey lists Maryland WR Stefon Diggs, Kansas State WR Tyler Lockett, USC WR Nelson Agholor and Duke WR Jamison Crowder as early-round possibilities, and Alabama-Birmingham WR J.J. Nelson as a late-round prospect.


  • According to Tony Pauline of DraftInsider.netpeople familiar with the situation have compared the present situation in Cleveland to the one that played out in San Francisco the past three years.
  • Pauline reports that there’s “a lot of dissension” in the Browns’ front office with people not working well together nor are they fond of one another.


  • The extensions provided to GM Steve Keim and HC Bruce Arians puts Keim in the top 10 of the highest paid general managers, and places Arians behind Philadelphia’s Chip Kelly as the highest paid head coach without a Super Bowl. (Ian Rapoport)


  • Phil Sheridan of ESPN lists Michigan CB Trae Waynes, Washington CB Marcus Peters, Miami (Ohio) CB Quinten Rollins, and Florida State CB P.J. Williams as cornerback prospects Philadelphia may target.


  • Adam Caplan reports that the Giants re-signed C Dallas Reynolds to a one-year contract worth $700,000, which includes $25,000 guaranteed.


We’d love to have Rashean back. I mean he’s really been a good leader for us,” said Mayhew, via Tim Twentyman. “He’s done a phenomenal job, I think, working with Darius Slay.”
