NFL Notes: Cowboys, Jets, Packers, Steelers & Vikings


Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones explained Wednesday that they are still considering whether to place Tony Romo on short-term injured reserve next week.

“We’re certainly getting our hands around it,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “We’ll be needing to make that decision obviously sometime later in the weekend. Whatever we do with him, he’ll need to be on our 53 when we cut it on Friday. So you’ve got to have him through the 53 cut before you can put him on designated to return, if we wanted to consider that. But it may be that we just keep him on the roster. We’ll just see.”


  • ESPN’s Rich Cimini believes the Jets would listen to trade offers for QB Geno Smith.
  • According to Cimini, Smith is viewed by some in the organization as “a player who has maxed out his potential, whereas Bryce Petty is seen as a quarterback whose arrow is pointing up.”


  • Rob Demovsky reports that the Packers worked out rookie LS Ryan DiSalvo on Wednesday.


  • Jeremy Fowler is hearing that Landry Jones is expected to keep the backup quarterback job, even after the Steelers claimed QB Zach Mettenberger off waivers from the Chargers.


  • Chris Mortensen said of the idea of the Vikings possible signing QB Peyton Manning: “Less than a zero percent chance. He is happily retired.” (Sirius XM NFL Radio)
