Extra Points: Chiefs, Packers, Bailey, Raiders

Some assorted notes from around the NFL:

  • The Chiefs worked out safety Sharrod Neasman on Wednesday, as Charean Williams of PFT writes. Neasman was with Atlanta for the last two years but was non-tendered this offseason. The 26-year-old appeared in eleven games last season and played mostly on special teams.
  • In an attempt to get younger, the Packers may look to “revamp” the right side of their offensive line, writes ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky. Jahri Evans could decide to retire, and Green Bay may be wary of keeping Bryan Bulaga and his $7.9MM cap hit, especially after a pair of ACL reconstructions. As Demovsky points out, the team could hand one of those spots to 25-year-old Justin McCray, but they could look for upgrades on their other options, including Jason Spriggs and Kyle Murphy.
  • Stedman Bailey sat down with Bleacher Report’s Tyler Dunne in a must-read interview. The former Rams wideout discussed his recovery after being shot in the head back in 2015, and he also talked about this attempt at a NFL comeback. “The attitude I have, I would think teams would want me around other guys and help motivate them,” Bailey said. “I can look at guys now and say: ‘Listen, man. The s–t’s not hard. I’ve been shot before. Let’s go out here and go get it.’ Motivation to where people say: ‘You know what, he’s f–king right. What can’t I do?'”
  • The Raiders were already looking at punter options before releasing Marquette King. Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal tweets that special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia “privately worked out” Texas punter Michael Dickson and Alabama punter JK Scott.
