Bills HC Sean McDermott said the team continues to “methodically” evaluate their decision regarding WR Sammy Watkins‘ fifth-year option. McDermott acknowledged that Watkins’ recovery from foot surgery is “one factor.” (Mike Rodak)
McDermott added that “not much” will change in Watkins’ health over next two weeks.
According to McDermott, it’s “not at all true” that GM Doug Whaley‘s role has been diminished since he was hired. McDermot said that decisions are a “team effort” and there is “open air communication.” (Mike Rodak)
Regarding the possibility of matching the Patriots’ offer sheet to RFA RB Mike Gillislee, McDermott said: “We’re still going through the process.” (Mike Rodak)
Although the Falcons “remain confident” that they will be able to get a deal done with RB Devonta Freeman, Schultz doesn’t expect a deal “anytime soon.”
Schultz mentions that the Falcons have “red-lined” Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon and he isn’t on their draft board.
Lions GM Bob Quinn said the team is “open for business” regarding possible trades during the 2017 NFL Draft and teams have begun contacting them: “The phone’s been ringing a little bit. I’m sure that’ll heat up here in the next four or five days.” (Carlos Monarrez)
Quinn added that the team is looking at a “number” of different positions and he would like to find the best player available that also meshes with their needs.
According to Quinn, it’s possible the upcoming draft could affect their decision regarding whether to pick up TE Eric Ebron‘s fifth-year option: “It’s a possibility. We’re still in the process of evaluating.” (Kyle Meinke)
