Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said that they’re scheduled to meet with all the top running back prospects in this year’s draft class.

Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon and Boise State’s Jay Ajayi both confirmed their meetings with the Cowboys. Georgia’s Todd Gurley is also on their list.



  • Rich Cimini is getting the sense that the Jets will target the cornerback and guard positions in free agency.
  • According to Cimini, some cornerbacks to watch for the Jets include: Names to watch are Antonio Cromartie, Kareem Jackson, Byron Maxwell, Brandon Flowers and Darrelle Revis (if he’s released).
  • In regards to the guard position, Cimini mentions that it sounds like they would like to add an established veteran.


Seahawks HC Pete Carroll told reporters on Friday that they’ve been “negotiating in earnest” with RB Marshawn Lynch and have extended him “big offers.

I haven’t talked to Marshawn,” Carroll said, via Terry Blount of ESPN. “But we have been negotiating in earnest for a great deal of time now to get Marshawn back with us. It’s been an ongoing, long process and we’ve had big offers out there and continue to work with that. We’re excited about the future. He’s been an integral part of our program. We would like to move it ahead swiftly. It’s such a big deal to get our elite players intact and we’re working at that now.
