NFL Notes: Browns, Packers & Ravens



  • Browns RB Isaiah Crowell tells TMZ that he plans to donate his first game check this season to the Dallas Fallen Officer Foundation, which supports families of officers killed in the line of duty, following his insensitive Instagram post.
  • The donation is expected to be about $37,500 of his $600,000 contract for this season.
  • Following Crowell’s apology for the post, police organizations felt the apology was empty and one even threatened to organize a police boycott of Browns home games this season.


  • Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk wonders if the Packers should consider signing QB Aaron Rodgers to a new contract, considering that he’s far more accomplished than Andrew Luck, who is now the highest paid player in the NFL.
  • However, Rodgers still has another four years remaining on his contract and set to make $68.25 million over this period.


  • Jamison Hensley points out that while the Ravens’ priority is getting a deal done with K Justin Tucker, the team can absorb his franchise tag number easily with nearly $13 million in cap space.
  • Hensley mentions that the Ravens like to use the tag to put more pressure on the player to perform during the one-year deal.
  • Hensley believes that Tucker will get a deal in the neighborhood of $4 million per year, the only question being whether the new deal comes this season or next.
