After visiting with the Giants last Thursday and Friday, free agent cornerback Jerraud Powers left New York without a deal and will continue to explore other options, according to Jordan Rannan of NJ.com. The club will continue to search for secondary depth, per Ranna, because even after signing Janoris Jenkins to pair with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Giants are pretty thin beyond those top two corners. Trevin Wade, Leon McFadden, and Tramian Jacobs make up the rest of Big Blue’s corner options.
Let’s dive into a few more notes out of the NFC…
- If Anthony Davis applies for reinstatement as is expected, the situation between the right tackle and the 49ers could become complicated, writes Jason Fitzgerald of Over the Cap. Davis was forced to repay a portion of his signing bonus when he retired prior to last season, and if he returns, its unclear exactly how the situation will be handled. The CBA is murky on the issue, per Fitzgerald, but San Francisco could threaten to release Davis and recoup another $3MM.
- Washington inked tight end Vernon Davis to a one-year, $2.38MM deal last week that contains $1.1MM in guarantees, leading Rich Tandler of CSNMidAtlantic.com to observe that Davis figures to play a significant role in the club’s offensive plans. Davis is Washington’s highest-paid tight end, but that’s only because Jordan Reed — who no doubt will still be the No. 1 tight end — is still playing on his rookie contract.
- Kam Chancellor held out for all of training camp last season, and ultimately missed two regular season games, but the Seahawks safety figures to be a full participant in this year’s offseason activities. Tricia Romano of the Seattle Times caught up with Chancellor over the weekend, and discussed the holdout, Seattle’s chances in 2016, and Russell Okung‘s agent-less negotiations.
