Seahawks GM John Schneider told reporters, including Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times (Twitter link), that he still wants to re-sign Tarvaris Jackson as a backup quarterback. However, he added that Jackson is still feeling his way through free agency. Here’s more from the NFC..
- Schneider went on to say that he’d “be lying” if he said that the offensive line isn’t a need for the Seahawks, but he also noted that the draft isn’t the only avenue for adding to that area (link).
- Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald would love to see his team trade for Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson, Marc Sessler of NFL.com writes. “Adrian Peterson is arguably the best back in the NFL,” Fitzgerald told Around The NFL. “You know, he’s been unbelievable. If he were to leave Minnesota, which I think is maybe a bit unlikely, he would be a huge, huge playmaker for whatever team he went to.”
- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones issued a statement explaining that the team respects Roger Goodell’s ruling on Greg Hardy, as Josh Alper of Pro Football Talk writes. “This suspension is something that we anticipated prior to Greg’s signing, and we respect the Commissioner’s ruling,” the statement reads. “Our organization understands the very serious nature of this matter. We will use our resources — work closely with Greg and with the league — to ensure a positive outcome.”
- News of Hardy’s 10-game suspension only makes Bob Sturm of The Dallas Morning News more certain that the Cowboys should trade back in the draft.
