New Bills CB Vontae Davis mentioned this week that he’ll be ready to go for the start of offseason workouts on April 16.
“Everything is good, man,” Davis said, via the Buffalo News. “I’m making tremendous strides, tremendous progress. I’m on schedule to go, we’re going into OTAs next week. There’s no limitation, I’m able to do everything.”
- Jordan Raanan of ESPN considers Notre Dame G Quenton Nelson to be a “realistic” target for the Giants if they’re to trade out of the No. 2 overall pick.
- In fact, Raanan says that there’s a “decent chance” Nelson would be their guy if they move down the board a few picks.
- As for the Bills trading up to No. 2 overall, Raanan says Buffalo isn’t sure they have the ammunition to get up to No. 2 overall.
- Raanan hasn’t heard anything about the Broncos trading up with the Giants.
- If the Giants hold on to their No. 2 pick, Raanan believes they likely select Penn State RB Saquon Barkley, but he thinks it would be a mistake for New York to not trade back.
- Rich Tandler of NBC Washington points out that the Redskins will have limited cap space to work with in 2019, which could lead to some notable roster moves.
- If the Redskins pick up G Brandon Scherff‘s fifth-year option, which seems like an obvious move, they’re projected to have around $9 million of cap room next year.
- At cornerback, Tandler points out that Josh Norman carries a $14.5 million cap figure next year and the Redskins could pick up $8.5 million of cap space by releasing him.
- For the time being, LB Zach Brown has a manageable $2.95 million cap figure, but Tandler mentions that this figure increases to $8.75 million in 2019 at a time when he’ll be 30 years old. If the Redskins were to draft a linebacker such as Roquan Smith or Tremaine Edmunds and then move on from Brown next year, they could create $5.75 million of cap room.
- Another position to watch, according to Tandler, is tight end where Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis will combine for $16 million of cap space next year.
