Morning Headlines: Ochocinco Likely to Remain in New England?


 

 

 

Chad Remaining in New England?

When the Patriot’s season ended, it appeared that the career of Ochocinco was over as well, at least as a Patriot. He posted career-lows in every receiving category, and never could figure out Bill Belicheck’s complex playbook, but it now appears the team is willing to keep him if they restructure his $3 million salary he’s due next year.

 

Rams Admit their Willingness to trade No. 2 Pick
There is a growing belief around the NFL that the Rams will take the best deal available within the next couple of days before the start of free agency and Peyton Manning gets released. If they wait and the teams who need a QB sign other free agents such as Matt Flynn, the Rams could find themselves with no trade suitors and stuck with the #2 pick.  

 

Giants not Expected to re-sign Stacy Andrews

Andrews is currently recovering from deep vein thrombosis, and it looks as though he’ll have a tough time finding work this offseason, as his career has gone downhill since he left the Bengals after getting the franchise tag. Yeah, that really happened.

 

Will Ryan Tannehill be a Brown?

Now that it appears the Browns will not pursue a deal to move up in the draft and selcet Robert Griffin III, there’s a good chance the team will take Ryan Tannehill with their 22nd overall pick they got from Atlanta in the Julio Jones trade last year. Tannehill is viewd by most NFL scout as the third-best QB prospect, and worth of a late first-round pick, something that the Browns have.

 

Redskins willing to deal 1sts, more for RG3

Robert Griffin III is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after QBs in recent draft history. The Skins haven’t had a franchise QB since Mark Rypien left D.C., and they’re ready to go all-in to finally nab one.

 

Raiders have to dump plenty of Salary

The Raiders are a mess right now, and several quality player they have may be cut to get under the salary cap. Some players that could be released and targeted by the Bengals include OLB Kameron Wimbley, DT Tommy Kelly, and the team may be unable to work out a new deal for free agent safety Tyvon Branch, a position of great need for the Bengals.

 

NFL Salary Cap could be Lower than Expected

I actually hope this is true, because the Bengals have so much money to spend being $60 million under the cap, this would only hurt a team like Pittsburg, who’s over the salary cap, and perhaps help the Bengals land an elite free agent, like Mike Wallace. It will also lead to some good, but overpaid players becoming available for the Bengals to sign.
