Extra Points: Gregory, Texans, Peterson

Some assorted notes as we wrap up the week…

  • The Chargers are bringing Nebraska pass rusher Randy Gregory in for an official visit after he tested positive for marijuana at the scouting combine, writes Michael Gehlken of the U-T San Diego. Gregory would not have been in the cards this late in the first round without the drug concerns, but the Chargers will be ready to make a decision on this top-10 talent should he fall in the draft.
  • The Texans re-signed backup guard Cody White on Thursday, and his one-year deal with the team will be worth $585K with no guaranteed money, reports Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun (via Twitter). Wilson writes that White has a split salary, which reduces the amount he is owed if he is forced onto the IR due to an injury.
  • Adrian Peterson “deserves” an exit and the Vikings “should grant his wish,” opines Troy E. Renck of The Denver Post. The writer emphasizes that Peterson’s apparent resentment towards the organization (including his belief that they didn’t show enough support) is unwarranted. However, the running back could use a fresh start, and Renck believes that won’t happen in Minnesota.
