The New Orleans Saints are expected to sign former Dolphins offensive lineman Jermon Bushrod, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo reported. The 11-year veteran spent his fist six seasons in New Orleans.
The Cleveland Browns have released wide receiver Sammie Coates, Garafolo reported.
Former Eagles tight end Brent Celek is visiting the Detroit Lions on Thursday, NFL Network’s Michael Silver reported.
Recently released tight end Eric Ebron is visiting the Carolina Panthers, Rapoport reported.
It’s a little less than the $8.9 million per year that Dont’a Hightower, a younger player with a better track record, got to stay with the Patriots last year.
I don’t doubt that there was genuine interest in Bradham, who took over at middle linebacker after Jordan Hicks went down without skipping a beat.
More so than most deals, this contract will be about the specific terms and whether the Eagles are really paying $8 million per year for any length of time.
It seems likely that the Eagles were deciding between Bradham and Mychal Kendricks to play alongside Hicks in their sub packages, and the move to re-sign Bradham suggests that they might be able to find a trade partner for Kendricks.
Even though Lane’s blood alcohol level was not about the legal limit, Lane had admitted to smoking marijuana and failed multiple field sobriety tests. The “suspected and admitted marijuana usage in conjunction with alcohol consumption” is what prompted the arrest, according to the police report.
Lane was released by the Seahawks last week after playing the first six seasons of his career in Seattle. He had one year remaining on his current deal with the team but the Seahawks had tried to trade him to Houston in November as part of a deal to acquire Duane Brown. Lane was pulled from the deal after he failed a physical with the Texans.
Last season, Graham was strictly a red zone weapon, as he averaged just 9.1 yards per catch but scored 10 touchdowns.
All 10 came in the red zone, which was the most of any tight end in the league.
