– Apparently, the Jets offer to QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was a lot lower than many thought, as it is now been reported that his current offer stands at a three-year deal worth $24 million.

– Despite the absence of Chip Kelly, RB Kenjon Barner has suddenly been thrust into the role as one of the team’s starting RBs early in OTAs.

– The Saints want G/T Andrus Peat to start but they aren’t sure where he will fit in as of yet.

– Here is Jenny Vrentas’ interview with Ron Rivera where she asks him about the Super Bowl hangover and what his team’s focus will be going into next year. Ron Rivera told Vrentas, “It is really important we don’t lose sight of what we accomplished, but the truth of the matter is, we didn’t complete it, that will continue to be the emphasis: We want to get it done.”

– T Phil Loadholt of the Vikings is supposedly moving pretty well after he tore his Achilles tendon in the preseason last year.

– QB Kirk Cousins sees a great weapon to utilize in the red zone in newly drafted WR Josh Doctson.

– Rob Ryan argues that the new scheme implemented was the reason for his firing and comments that he knows he is better than that.
