Some assorted notes from around the NFL on this Saturday afternoon…
- While Calvin Johnson‘s decision on his future may give the Lions a bit of clarity, ESPN.com’s Michael Rothstein believes the team will still have the same needs heading into the draft: wideout, offensive tackle, defensive tackle, linebacker, and defensive back.
- Meanwhile, Rothstein believes Browns offensive tackle Mitchell Schwartz could be a target of the Lions. However, he doesn’t envision the team pursuing lineman Nick Fairley or wideout Percy Harvin.
- Wideout Greg Jennings is atop ESPN.com’s James Walker’s list of players on the Dolphins chopping block. Tight end Jordan Cameron and defensive tackle Earl Mitchell are also mentioned as potential release candidates.
- Quarterback is one of the Broncos most pressing roster issues heading into the offseason, says Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post. The writer believes Brock Osweiler is more likely to return that Peyton Manning, but he also suggests the team could like elsewhere. The writer suggests Robert Griffin, Colin Kaepernick, Chase Daniel and Drew Stanton as potential targets.
