Workout Notes: Giants, Dolphins, Chiefs

The Giants are working out a handful of kickers today, including Kyle Brindza, Zach Hocker, Corey Acosta, and Tom Obarski, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports (Twitter link). Josh Brown has been a little inconsistent on kickoffs, putting one out of bounds on Sunday, but it’s hard to imagine the team making a change, considering he’s perfect on field goals and has missed just one extra point. As Jordan Raanan of tweets, the Giants are likely just kicking the tires on free agents.

Let’s round up a few more workout updates from around the NFL…

  • Defensive linemen Jerel Worthy, Derrick Lott, Glenn Foster, and Davon Coleman worked out for the Dolphins today, says Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post (Twitter link). Worthy and Foster are the most notable names of the group, having each logged a full season’s worth of regular season contests with the Packers and Saints, respectively.
  • Lott was also among the players who tried out recently for the Chiefs, per Wilson (Twitter links). Running back Gus Johnson, defensive end Lawrence Okoye, and linebacker Alex Singleton also got a look from Kansas City.
  • According to Wilson (via Twitter), before signing wideout Corey Washington to the practice squad, Washington also worked out receiver Marcus Lucas and tight end Connor Hamlett.
  • Offensive lineman Ben Gottschalk, who spent time in the summer on the Niners’ roster, auditioned for the Buccaneers today, tweets Wilson.
  • Former USC outside linebacker J.R. Tavai had a tryout with the Packers today, according to Wilson (via Twitter). Tavai signed with the Titans as an undrafted free agent in May, but was cut by the team prior to the regular season.
  • The Cardinals auditioned cornerback Keith Lewis, who was cut by the Jets back in August, tweets Wilson.
  • On the heels of Jason Myers missing his third PAT of the season, Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley noted that Myers’ kickoffs were also a little short, and mentioned the possibility of bringing in kickers for workouts, per Mike DiRocco of According to Bradley, GM Dave Caldwell will make that call.

AFC Notes: Harvin, Brady, Bengals, Moore

Earlier today, we heard conflicting reports on whether Bills wide receiver Percy Harvin, who is battling hip and knee issues, is truly considering retirement. As Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports writes, the fact that Rex Ryan and the Bills have made sure to stress that Percy Harvin’s absence in London this week is “personal” and not injury-related suggests that there’s something to the retirement rumors.

If Harvin were to retire during the season, he’d risk forfeiting several million dollars in salary and signing-bonus money, as the Bills would be within their rights to try to recoup that money. For his part, the veteran wideout would probably rather avoid a contract stand-off, which would help explain why he’d want to continue his career, even if health problems had him contemplating the idea of retirement.

As we wait to see how the Harvin situation plays out in Buffalo, let’s round up a few more AFC notes….

  • Tom Brady said this week that his goal is to play “maybe 10 more years,” according to Adam Schefter of (via Twitter). Pressed on whether or not he was serious, the Patriots quarterback added: “That’s what my goals are, that’s what I’m hoping.” Of course, as Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk points out, it’s not the first time Brady has repeated that “10 more years” mantra, and if he really wants to play that long, there’s no guarantee he’ll do so in New England.
  • Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (Twitter links) passes along news on a pair of Bengals workouts, reporting that quarterback Bryn Renner and linebacker Alex Singleton got a look from Cincinnati today.
  • After spending the first four years of his NFL career with the Broncos, safety Rahim Moore signed with the Texans this offseason. Those teams’ respective places in the standings indicate that Moore may regret his decision, but that’s not the case, as Wilson writes for the Chronicle. “I think this is a great decision,” Moore said. “Some people can make the wrong decision in free agency and have regrets. I don’t have any”

Browns Notes: Manziel, Orchard, Defense

Browns second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel was once again in the news yesterday, this time for a roadside argument with his girlfriend.

Let’s check out the latest on Johnny Football and the organization…

  •’s Field Yates believes the league will let the legal process “run its course” before they make any decision on a Manziel punishment. Yates notes that Manziel could also be punished by the Browns, although it appears that he’ll be in uniform tomorrow.
  •’s Pat McManamon wonders what it would take for the Browns to part ways with Manziel. The writer says the quarterback should be commended for acknowledging prior mistakes and entering rehab. However, Friday night’s incident is still another example of the second-year player making poor decisions off the field.
  • With linebacker Scott Solomon out for the season, Terry Pluto of says rookie Nate Orchard has a “tremendous chance” to make an impact on the Browns defense. The second-round pick struggled with a back injury during the preseason, but he’s been heating up over the past few weeks.
  • The Browns worked out a trio of linebackers, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle (via Twitter): Edwin Jackson, Terrance Plummer and Alex Singleton.
  • Defensive back Jordan Poyer and kicker Travis Coons were each fined $8,681 for penalties they received during last weekend’s game, according to Nate Ulrich of
