The #Rams  pulled off a blockbuster in trading for Jalen Ramsey, while the Jaguars got a massive draft haul. Kevin Demoff of the #Rams  called it “a long-term move for one of the best players in the game.” My story on how it happened:

How did the suddenly important trade for QB Ryan Tannehill go down? A look at how the #Titans  landed their eventual starter, plus a contract breakdown:

From @NFLGameDay : #Chiefs  QB Patrick Mahomes is out 3-5 weeks, either back in Week 11 or after the bye in Week 13. Two key points: He avoided major injury by not moving on the field and surgery wasn't discussed at all during the week.

Sources: Free agent RB Jay Ajayi is working out for the #AZCardinals  and taking a physical. The visit, which begins today and stretches into tomorrow, could result in a signing if all goes well.

The #Texans  have traded for former #Raiders  1st round CB Gareon Conley in exchange for a third-round pick, source confirmed @VicTafur  on it first).

Source: The #Patriots  have traded for #Falcons  WR Mohamed Sanu in exchange for a 2nd rounder. They tried during the draft, Atlanta held off, finally get him now.

As the MVP discussion heats up, I wondered about #Saints  WR Michael Thomas’ role keeping them rolling with Drew Brees out. So I asked @NFLResearch . Turns out, Thomas’ production has been identical with Brees and Teddy Bridgewater. Hugely valuable.

Sources: The #Steelers  are closing in on a deal to send star WR Antonio Brown to the Buffalo #Bills . There it is.

The #Raiders  have released WR Antonio Brown. Wow.

The #Cowboys  & RB Ezekiel Elliott agree on a 6-year, $90M extension that makes him the highest-paid RB in the NFL, sources tell me and @SlaterNFL . Roughly half guaranteed. In all, it's $103M over 8 years—the 1st Cowboy to eclipse $100M in total value, the richest RB contract.

Wow. Cleveland is trying to trade for Kirk Cousins. This is real.

Sources: #Texans  QB fear Deshaun Watson suffered a torn ACL in practice today. A non-contact injury. MRI coming to confirm. Awful, awful.

Source: AB has agreed to terms with the #Patriots .
