NFL Notes: Browns, Cowboys, Rams & Titans



  • Browns executive VP Sashi Brown mentioned that Robert Griffin III could be their long-term answer at quarterback, but he’ll need to prove it this year and win the starting job. (Nate Ulrich)
  • Brown added that they they want veteran QB Josh McCown to vie for the starting job. They’ll consider keeping him, even if he doesn’t win the starting job. (Nate Ulrich)
  • Brown said he’s surprised they managed to get as much as it did from the Eagles in  for the No. 2 overall pick. (Nate Ulrich)


  • Todd Archer mentions that the Cowboys are unlikely to make any notable additions in the free agent market, especially after VP Stephen Jones essentially confirmed as much in recent days.
  • According to Archer, the Cowboys have no interest in veteran CB Antonio Cromartie.
  • Archer doesn’t see the Cowboys moving on from Darren McFadden by either releasing him outright or trading him to another team.
  • Instead, Archer thinks Dallas would be wise to hold onto him as a solid backup option to first-round RB Ezekiel Elliott.


  • Nick Wagoner considers the receiver position to be the biggest question mark for the Rams in 2016.
  • Wagoner mentions that the Rams will likely enter the year with Kenny Britt, Tavon Austin and Brian Quick as their top-three receivers, and rookie Pharoh Cooper possibly earning some work as a slot receiver.
  • Wagoner points out the Rams were last in the NFL in regards to shotgun or pistol snaps. According to Wagoner, there’s a sentiment that the Rams will what’s necessary to add more shotgun looks for No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff in 2016.


  • Jim Waytt of suspects four running backs will make the team’s 53-man roster.
  • Wyatt seems to think second-year RB David Cobb has a good chance of making the team, but he wonders if Antonio Andrews is too similar to Derrick Henry.
  • As for former second-round pick Bishop Sankey, Wyatt says he’ll need to step up his game this summer to have a shot at remaining with the team.
