Sources: The #Bengals  have told DE Carlos Dunlap to stay home rather than come to work today as the team sorts out his future. They have had trade talks centered around their disgruntled pass-rusher, and those are continuing.

This is an interesting one: The #Cowboys  have made it known that DE Everson Griffen is available in a trade, source says. About half of his $6M salary is left for a team looking for edge help. Makes sense with Dallas’ record.

From @NFLGameDay : Tom Brady wanted to bring two players with him when he landed with a new team in free agency -- Gronk and Antonio Brown. With AB joining the #Bucs , Brady gets his wish and Tampa gets more firepower.

O-line help could be on the way for the #Bengals : Former #Bills  G Quinton Spain is heading to Cincy to visit this week, source said. A potential ex-starter added to the mix.

#Browns WR Odell Beckham, who was knocked out of today’s game early, is feared to have suffered a major knee injury, source said. He’ll have an MRI in the morning and perhaps there will be some better news, but early indications aren’t good.

Source: The #Ravens  are signing WR Dez Bryant to the practice squad. Officially back.

The #Texans  will be closing their facility due to a player testing positive for COVID-19, source said. They are on a bye week now. They are testing all other players.


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

The #Patriots  and #Bucs  have agreed to terms on a trade: Tampa gets Rob Gronkowski and a 7th rounder in exchange for a 4th rounder, sources say.

It’s Draft Day. Finally. We need this.

Former #Seahawks  QB Tarvaris Jackson died last night in a car accident in Alabama, a spokesperson for his employer Tennessee State tells me. Jackson, 36, was TSU’s QB coach. Along with Seattle, he also played for the #Vikings  and #Bills .

The #Raiders  have released WR Antonio Brown. Wow.

Source: The #Patriots  are signing Cam Newton to a 1-year deal. A chance to compete. This has been in the works. A bare minimum deal.

Super Bowl winning #Chiefs  QB Patrick Mahomes is now an owner… of a baseball franchise. He’s become part-owner of the #Royals . The youngest owner in sports history.
