NFL Notes: Draft, Bills, Cardinals, Cowboys, & Raiders


  • Tony Pauline reports that LSU OT La’el Collins met with the Giants and Browns Thursday, and the 49ers and Saints today.
  • LSU S Ronald Martin worked out for the Patriots on Thursday.



Cardinals HC Bruce Arians explained his decision to hold Logan Thomas out of the season finale against the 49ers.

“We drafted him for two years from now, not November,” Arians said, via “It just so happened his number got called (earlier.) I was not going to let him fail (in San Francisco) because once you fail those scars never go away.

“It’s very hard to get the guys back in the locker room if you cost them the playoffs. I just wasn’t going to put him in that situation. Right or wrong, it just was my decision.”


  • Jason Fitzgerald of has a great article up that explores the idea of the Cowboys pursuing RB Adrian Peterson.

Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie says that they haven’t given up on the possibility of signing free agent TE Jermaine Gresham.

“He’s still on my board,” said McKenzie, via Scott Bair of “We’ll see how he feels and how he rehabs and all that. Going forward, it will be more about how he wants to navigate through this.”
