NFL Notes: Chiefs, Cowboys, Lions & Rams



Adam Teicher of ESPN recently took a stab at projecting the Chiefs’ 53-man roster.


  • According to Todd Archer, it’s hard to see the Cowboys not bringing back HC Jason Garrett for the 2017 season, even if the team doesn’t make the playoffs.


  • Michael Rothstein doesn’t see the Lions making any splash signings in the coming months.
  • Even so, Rothstein doesn’t rule out the Lions signing some veterans at reasonable prices.
  • Detroit may also elect to use some of their cap space to sign their 2013 draft class to extension. This includes CB Darius Slay, RB Theo Riddick, P Sam Martin, DE Devin Taylor and G Larry Warford.
  • In regards to QB Matthew Stafford, Rothstein could see the Lions opening talks with his representative regarding a long-term extension next offseason.
  • According to Rothstein, it’s possible Lions GM Bob Quinn could look to clean house in 2017 if the team struggles.
  • In regards to the defensive end position, Rothstein thinks Devin Taylor will likely be the starter opposite of Ziggy Ansah.


  • Nick Wagoner believes the Rams will eventually sign one of the two free agents they brought in for visits — Donte Whitner or Dashon Goldson.
  • Of the two, Wagoner believes Whitner may be the better fit, considering that Goldson profiles as more of a free safety.
