NFL Notes: Broncos, Lions, Patriots




  • Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press would be focused on taking one of LSU CB Greedy Williams, Houston DT Ed Oliver, Michigan DE Rashan Gary or Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell at No. 8 overall if he was in charge of the Lions.
  • Birkett says Oliver is the player who intrigues him the most, given that he has “insane pass-rush ability inside.”
  • Regarding the possibility of re-signing WR Golden Tate, Birkett wouldn’t completely rule out a reunion, considering Detroit could use some help at the position. However, he believes the odds of this happening are “relatively slim.”
  • Instead, Birket thinks Jamison Crowder, Adam Humphries or Cole Beasley would be good targets for the Lions to consider. 
  • If the Lions don’t re-sign Zach Zenner, Birkett could see them signing someone like Seahawks RB Mike Davis


  • Kevin Duffy of the Boston Herald takes a look at some speculative free agent options for the Patriots at the receiver position this offseason including Buccaneers WR Adam Humphries, Redskins WR Jamison Crowder, Steelers WR Eli Rogers, and Cowboys WR Cole Beasley.
  • According to Duffy, Dolphins WR DeVante Parker and Buccaneers WR DeSean Jackson are also worth keeping an eye on, seeing as they could be release candidates this offseason. 
  • Duffy adds that he wouldn’t rule out the possibility that New England could attempt to trade for a receiver either.
