NFL Notes: Cardinals, Jets, Panthers, & Raiders



  • Mike Jurecki reports that the Cardinals are looking at free agent guards and centers.
  • According to Jurecki, Cardinals G Paul Fanaika will test the free agent market and could have a couple suitors.


Brian Costello of the New York Post offers some of his takeaways regarding the Jets after speaking to people at the Combine.

  • The Jets are prioritizing the cornerbacks position and are expected to be one of the “primary suitors” for Seahawks free agent Byron Maxwell.
  • NFL agents are reportedly aware how desperate the Jets are for cornerbacks, which could force them to overpay to sign free agents.
  • New York is reportedly “very high” on LSU’s Jalen Collins and Wake Forest’s Kevin Johnson and could grab one of them in the second round.
  • Costello is convinced the Jets will either take QB Marcus Mariota or a pass rusher at the No. 6 overall, but WR Amari Cooper could complicate the situation.
  • According to Costello, ILB David Harris is their No. 1 free agent.
  • Sources tell Costello that they believed the Jets need to hold on to WR Percy Harvin and see how he does in Chan Gailey’s system.


  • David Newton of ESPN writes that the Panthers decision to release veteran RB DeAngelo Williams doesn’t mean they’ll use their No. 25 overall pick on a running back.
  • Newton admits that Carolina could consider a running back at a later point in the draft, but just not in round one.
  • As for potential options in the middle rounds, Newton suggests: Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah, Miami’s Duke Johnson, and Boise State’s Jay Ajayi.
