Home Browns NFL Notes: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Browns, Dolphins & Giants
- Ed Werder reports that the Jets have had no recent talks with free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, and the two sides remain far apart with no resolution expected soon.
- Nate Ulrich notes that TE Gary Barnidge (sports hernia), third-round OT Shon Coleman, and third-round DE Carl Nassib (calf) all passed their physicals on Tuesday and will participate during training camp.
- Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News expects second-round WR Sterling Shepard to be the Giants’ No. 2 receiver behind Odell Beckham, while veteran WR Victor Cruz (knee/calf) will play in the slot if he is healthy.
- However, Vacchiano writes that HC Ben McAdoo will likely rotate Beckham, Shepard and Cruz to each receiving position.
- Vacchiano would not be shocked to see third-round S Darian Thompson open training camp as the Giants’ starting safety opposite of Landon Collins.
- Vacchiano believes the Giants would be interested in trading for 49ers RT Anthony Davis if he is made available.
