Raiders veteran Charles Woodson is down to make whatever changes new head coach Jack Del Rio and defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. want to, Tyler Moorehead of Raiders.com writes. “We need it,” Woodson said. “My take is that, the last couple of years that I’ve been here, it’s been three wins and four wins. Whatever different that comes in and feels good, you welcome it. We feel good about not only him, but all of the guys that they’ve brought in. They all have that fire. It’s been fun.” Here’s more from around the NFL..
- Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times looked at the Seahawks‘ offense by position and the most pressing storyline for each group. When it comes to quarterback, the biggest question is whether Russell Wilson will play 2015 without a contract. Much was made of a radio interview Wilson gave recently in which he said he’s “been moved around before,’’ but Condotta largely chalks that up to a negotiating ploy more than anything. Meanwhile, the Seahawks also have to find their new starter at center following the trade of longtime starter Max Unger.
- Johnathan Joseph can earn up to $15.5MM in the first two seasons of his extension, according to Adam Caplan of ESPN.com (Twitter link). Of that money, $11.5MM is fully guaranteed for the Texans cornerback.
- Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is the last first-round draft pick left unsigned, but he told SiriusXM NFL Radio (on Twitter) that he’s “not worried about it at all” earlier today. “Obviously, it’s a business deal,” the No. 2 overall pick said. “It’s going to take some time. That’s why you hire your agent.” Recently, Titans GM Ruston Webster acknowledged that it’s possible that Mariota could miss a few days of training camp if the two sides can’t come to a deal.
