NFL Notes: Cowboys, Raiders, Redskins, & Steelers


Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas writes that a contract extension for Cowboys CB Brandon Carr could make the most sense for both parties, even though there’s been talk that Carr could be a cap casualty.

Archer suggests that the contract the Seahawks signed CB Cary Williams to — a three-year, $18 million deal that included $7 million guaranteed — could make sense for both parties, seeing as they could keep Carr while reducing his cap figures in the process.



Redskins OLB Ryan Kerrigan mentioned that talks regarding a long-term extension are “progressing well,” per Tarik El-Bashir.

Kerrigan added that he hopes to have an agreement in place at some point in the near future.

Meanwhile, Redskins GM Scot McCloughan said of the ongoing talks with Kerrigan and LT Trent Williams: “We’re going to take care of our own. That’s very important.” (Tarik El-Bashir)

  • Steelers released DT Nigel Crawford-Kinney, P Richie Leone and DE Bradon Prate.
