AFC Rumors: Browns, RGIII, Raiders, Jets, Bills

After hosting him for a visit earlier this weekend, the Browns are now doing more extensive homework on Robert Griffin III, making calls to find out more about the free agent QB’s game and his character, reports Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. While it may just be a matter of a team doing its due diligence, the Browns’ efforts could also signal that Cleveland has a level of genuine interest in Griffin. By comparison, the Jets – who brought RGIII in for a meet-and-greet but remain focused on re-signing Ryan Fitzpatrick – don’t appear to have done the same amount of research into the former No. 2 overall pick.

Here’s more from around the AFC:

  • Despite having some interest in him, it appears unlikely that the Raiders will make an offer to Cardinals RFA safety Tony Jefferson, tweets Eddie Borsilli of SiriusXM NFL Radio. A source tells Borsilli that Oakland is more likely to focus on adding safety help in the draft.
  • The Jets have taken a methodical approach to free agency so far in 2016, but they have the resources to be major players a year from now, writes Rich Cimini of As Cimini observes, the Jets don’t have many non-rookie contracts on their books that feature guaranteed money in 2017, so the team will have the flexibility to make major moves if opportunities arise.
  • The Bills and cornerback Stephon Gilmore have yet to make headway on a long-term contract extension, and it doesn’t appear that the team is in a rush to get something done, says Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News. Although the Bills would like to lock up their top cornerback, it sounds like an issue the club may address sometime after the draft, rather than in the immediate future.

  1. Gilmore is a good, big corner, but he’s asking too much. Rex Ryan and the BIlls D need more help.

    Browns new front office and personnel approach will be the model of other organizations moving forward. Haslam, Jackson, DePodestra, Brown, Coordinators Horton and Hamilton are great SMEs. I am a lifelong BrownsClown. The Milestones are weeks 3, 6, 10, and post-Superbowl offseason. Exciting. Your future is Sum or Product or Quotient or Difference of yesterday’s Inputs or decisions.

    Raiders should go sign reggie Nelson he will fill the leadership void left by Charles Woodson retiring, plus the dude can still play! To me Nelson is a way better player at this point of his career than Eric weddle. Nelson led the league in picks last year with 8, raiders should take advantage of this slow market for Nelson and bring him in. JUST WIN BABY!
