NFL Notes: Cardinals, Jaguars, Jets, & Lions



  • Michael DiRocco expects first-round DB Jalen Ramsey to start out as a cornerback and likely remain there for the foreseeable future, considering that they like to have their rookie focus on a single position.
  • DiRocco mentions that there is some question about the Jaguars’ safety depth.
  • In regards to their defensive line, DiRocco can see Bjoern Werner, Chris Smith and Richard Ash being among the odd men out this summer.


  • Rich Cimini writes that the Jets would need to create some more cap room in order to re-sign veteran QB Ryan Fitzpatrick.
  • Cimini suggests restructuring CB Buster Skrine‘s contract, which could create $3.85 million in cap space.
  • Doing the same think for receivers Eric Decker ($3.85 million) and Brandon Marshall ($4.3 million) could net them a max savings of $8.15 million in cap space.
  • Of course, signings DL Muhammad Wilkerson to a long-term contract would easily free up plenty of cap room for them to work with.


  • A source tells Kyle Meinke that Lions CB Darius Slay is open to signing a long-term extension with Detroit this offseason.
  • Michael Rothstein wouldn’t be surprised to see the Lions sign a veteran cornerback at some point.
  • Rothstein believes WR Jay Lee (Baylor), WR Quinshad Davis (North Carolina), TE Cole Wick (Incarnate Word) and TE Adam Fuehne (Southern Illinois) have the best shot of making the 53-man roster out of their undrafted rookie signings.
