Josh Brown

  • Jason La Canfora reports that former Giants K Josh Brown is eligible to receive termination pay of $720,480 after being released earlier in the week.
  • La Canfora mentions that the CBA allows Brown to still be eligible for termination pay and he was set to make roughly $72,000 per game while on the commissioner’s exempt list.
  • La Canfora reports that the NFL is continuing to investigate Brown’s case despite him being not being on an NFL roster.
  • In regards to a return to the NFL, La Canfora says it’s “virtually certain” Brown won’t get another shot in the NFL.


  • Jordan Raanan writes that re-signing LB Keenan Robinson should be an offseason priority for the Giants. According to Raanan, the Giants have been impressed with him and there’s a good chance they work out an extension next year.
  • Raanan expects the Giants to consider expanding rookie RB Paul Perkins‘ role to improve their rushing attack.


  • Adam Schefter, citing league sources, reports that Texans QB Brock Osweiler is struggling with his confidence right now.
  • Schefter spoke with NFL executives and coaches who have watched Osweiler play who agree he’s lost his confidence and it is clearly affecting his play. A source tells Schefter that Osweiler’s inaccuracy is a direct result of his lack of assurance in his abilities.
  • Ian Rapoport reports that Texans owner Bob McNair and GM Rick Smith still believe in Osweiler and plan to be patient with Osweiler.
  • According to Rapoport, the Texans aren’t discussing a quarterback job and nothing is considered imminent at this point.
  • Rapoport says that the Texans want Osweiler to relax and focus on getting the ball to play-makers like DeAndre Hopkins.


A source tells Adam Caplan that Titans RB DeMarco Murray is “good” after he had an MRI on his injured toe in recent days.

Nothing broken or torn,” Caplan’s source said of Murray’s results. “He’s good. It’s (toe) sore and day to day. Long weekend off should help.”
