Let’s look at some assorted notes from around the league…
- Michael Sam‘s deal with the Montreal Alouettes is for one year, but it does contain an option year for 2016, clarifies Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reported earlier that Sam will earn $100K for 2015, and $150K for 16, well above the usual rate for CFL players.
- We heard earlier today that the Saints would be making some changes to their personnel department, and Mike Triplett of ESPN.com (Twitter link) confirms the firings have begun, as two area scouts have been let go.
- The Dolphins have locked up Ryan Tannehill, Mike Pouncey, and Ndamukong Suh in recent months, but the club’s attitude toward roster-building was forged in 2014, as GM Dennis Hickey explains to Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald.
