Bengals, A. J. Green not talking about a new contract yet
By May 3, the Bengals inevitably will exercise the fifth-year option on receiver A. J. Green's contract. The bigger question is whether the Bengals will be extending Green's contract by more than a year.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, talks on an extension for Green have not yet begun. The fourth overall pick in 2011, Green has a strong argument that he deserves the contract now that he didn't get three years ago under a rookie wage scale aimed at preventing busts from sucking millions out of the system.
But the Bengals hold his rights for two more years, giving them no reason to break the bank prematurely. Even in 2016, they can use the franchise tag to hold him in place while working out a long-term deal.
Before that happens, Green could boycott offseason workouts or hold out from training camp. The former isn't very expensive; the latter would cost $30,000 per day. For that reason, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis is confident Green will be there.
Sounds like he'll hold out next year no doubt, he deserves a multi-year big money contract for his performance. He would be great in New England, Carolina, or San Fran

Jaguars make four roster moves
The Jacksonville Jaguars today announced four roster moves. The team has released sixth-year LB Russell Allen. Third-year DE D'Aundre Reed, second-year DE Will Pericak and first-year WR Jabin Sambrano were also waived.
Allen, who was originally signed as an undrafted rookie on Apr. 26, 2010, played in 78 games with 44 starts for the Jaguars in five seasons. Allen saw action in the first 14 games (with 13 starts) of the 2013 season before being placed on injured reserve with a concussion, which he suffered in Week 15 vs. Buffalo.

NFL Draft Rumors: Lions, Chiefs and Rams among teams meeting with Aaron Murray
As we near the NFL Draft this May, it appears that the stocks of a few different prospects are on the rise. One of those prospects is Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, who has seemingly recovered from his ACL injury and is ready to bounce back with a nice rookie season in the NFL.
The only question is which team will inevitably draft him and where will that be? According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, the Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs are among a slew of teams slated to meet with Murray over the next week or so.
The Lions are the only real interesting team here as they have a quarterback and one they don't plan on usurping anytime soon. The same can be said for Alex Smith but he's further down the road than Matthew Stafford and getting Andy Reid's hands on Murray early is a wise choice.
Murray is growing into a hotter and hotter commodity this offseason and his stock is continuing to rise.

NFL Draft Rumors: Detroit Lions visiting with Jadeveon Clowney
The Detroit Lions pick 10th in the NFL Draft this May but they seem to have eyes set on the top prospects in the class. While Sammy Watkins remains a top choice for the Lions, it appears that Jadeveon Clowney has piqued their interest as well and they'll be calling him in for a workout this week.
It's interesting to note that the Lions are working out Clonwey given that they're rumored to be looking at moving up. We don't know what the Lions plan on doing when the draft rolls around, as trading down has been something brought up as well when it comes to their draft plans.
Clowney will for sure be gone by the time the Lions go on the clock though, so if they're serious about getting him they'll definitely have to move up to get him. They may just be doing their due diligence, but the fact that the Lions are meeting with the top prospect int he draft shouldn't go unnoticed or undiscussed.
Clowney is not doing personal workouts any more. And if they want Clowney they would have to trade up to the #1 pick and that won't happen
Suh will be traded for a top pick

With the 18th pick in the 2014 nfl draft, the new york jets select odell beckham jr, WR LSU.
Great fit, the jets seem to be wowed over him, I see him and decker doing big things in the big apple over the years. Even if odells taken before 18 marquise lee, kelvin benjamin or brandin cooks would be great fits in morhninwegs offense
You've just listed 3 COMPLETELY different WR's and claimed each of them would be great fits in morninghwegs offense. do you actually aphave any idea what he looks for in a wr! I don't before you say that, but ten I don't go making stupid statements I accept it

The UN have entered the debate over the use of the name 'Washington Redskins'.
James Anaya, a UN expert on indigenous people's rights, urged Snyder to "consider that the term 'redskin' for many is inextricably linked to a history of suffering and dispossession. "
Anaya says "it is understood to be a pejorative and disparaging term that fails to respect and honor" Native Americans.
I really like this trade, I think it works out for both teams

Thats the finished draft
I also think bears will sign javon ringer as another running back and maybe sign another te in fred davis
I also heard bears are thinking about drafting a cb with 1rst pick to move tillman to safety which would be a great idea he is getting slower but is a great leader and is a ball hawk and outstanding tackler
Fred Davis was suspend for the first 4 games of the 2014
No need for OG in the draft. If Fuller is still on the board at 29 I like him better than Roby. Overall solid.

To high for Mason he will be drafted 3rd of later
Without a third I don't think the titans can risk losing out on a back like Mason. They either trade back in the second or pull the trigger on him with their pick.
Mathews won't fall that far

Detroit Lions mock draft:
1 (10) - Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA - Though I would like to see Mayhew move back and get some extra picks, I don't think there will be much interest in the Lions pick unless one of the QB's fall. Therefore we select the best player available, which just so happens to fill a huge need. Barr's versatility to play either OLB or DE at the next level, as well as his outstanding atleticism will allow him to make an instant impact in Detroit as a situational pass rusher whilst his coverage skills are refined. New Defensive coordinator likes employs 3 LB's with more regularity than the Schwartz regime, and Barr representa an instant upgrade over Ashlee Palmer.
2 (45) - Marquise Lee, WR, USC - I truly believe that Lee's injury-slowed 2013 season will cause him to slip in the draft just as it did for Robert Woods and Keenan Allen. If this is the case, then the Lions will happily take the star wideout at this spot and form possibly the best receiving trio outside of Denver. Lee has the quickness and guile to work effectively in the slot, yet also the speed and route running to play on thte outside, and reminds me a lot of the Giants Victor Cruz.
3 (76) - Ahmad Dixon, S, Baylor - Though the signing of James Ihedigbo temporarily fills the need at S, few would consider him the long term answer. Dixon plays wit the kind of aggression that the Lions seek to pair with Glover Quin, and would benefit from being able to learn from Ihedigbo before hopefully competing woth him down the stretch, and in 2015.
4 (107) - Tyler Larsen, C, Utah St. - If either Weston Richburg or Marcus Martin are still on the board here, then the Lions run straight up to the podium. As it is the Lions pick Larsen to be the long term replacement for Raiola. Though, unlike Martin and Richburg, I don't aee Larsen pushing Raiola this year, he does have the tools that if refined for a year under the tutelage of the veteran C, should allow him to step in and start in 2015.
4 (133) - Logan Thomas, QB, Virginia Tech. - This one just makes too much sense. thomas has all the tools, but is raw, needing to work on his footwork and accuracy. In their efforts to help Stafford, Detroit has assembled a coaching staff with considerable expertise at the QB position, so it makes sense to fill their need for a backup QB with a developmental talent that they can potentially look to trade away 2 or 3 years down the line. Greeat fit for all involved.
4 (136) - Cody Latimer, WR, Indiana - The Lions are committed to their overhaul of the WR corps, and so shouldn't stop with the selection of Marqise Lee. As of now, no WR other than Calvin, Tate and Lee are assured of a roster spot, so bringing another of this deep WR class in to compete with Ross, Broyles, Durham and Ogletree makes sense. Latimer has the size, speed and hands NFL teams covet, and is a great value pick here.
6 (173) - Chris Boswell, K, Rice - The Lions need to replace Jason Hanson, so after the David Akers experiment fails, they will use a late round pick on a specialist in 2014, much like they did in 2013 with Sam Martin, and Boswell is the best of the bunch. (I'm sorry, but Havard "Kickalicious" Rugland isn't the answer either!)
7 (204) - Colt Lyerla, TE, Oregon - Arguably one of the most talented TE's in this class, Lyerla falls due to character questions. However if he reaches this pick, the Lions will surely be persuaded to gamble on his game changing ability. Lyerla would likely compete with 2013 7th rounder Michael Williams for the 3rd TE spot behind Pettigrew and Fauria.
Let me know what you guys think!
It definitely fills the needs of the lions! I don't think Lee will drop that far just due to analysts and boards that have him going as early as 15. But who knows. I think the more realistic option is Jordan Matthews. But good job I like Barr in round 1.
Lee will not be there in the 2nd round
I just thtink Lee's lack of production in 2013 will make him fall as it did for Woods and Allen. If not, then the pick would be one of the other WR's that would be available. Mathews, Allen Robinson, Jarvis Landry, Martavis Bryant would all be good picks here
There are a few players I would look at
anthony steen (3rd to 4th round)
jeremy gallon (5th to 7th round)
matt hall (5th to 7th round)
marquis flowers (6th to 7th round)
michael schofield (3rd to 5th round)
jared abbrederris (3rd to 5th round)
kelcy quarles (2nd to 4th round)
THESE ARE PLAYERS I WOULD LOOK INTO FOR THE LIONS AS THEY CAN BE STEALS IN THE DRAFT

Jets sign chris johnson to 2 year 18 mill deal
Also sign or attempt, djax to a 4 year 29 mill deal
If the Jets sign C. Johnson for that much that shows why they are losers he is not worth that much
DJax will want way more than that. he wanted more and was getting paid 11 million!
Djax gut 24 mill 16 guaranteed. And yeah I say they give CJ 2 years 10 or 8 mill

Bears Post Free Agency Mock Draft
1) trade with SF- SF takes Darqueze Dennard- CB need.
CHI Gets- pick 30, 2014 2nd, 2014 3rd
Bears draft- Timmy Jernigan DT
A dominate player who is slipping on draft boards and can clog up the middle for the Bears.
2) Stephon Tuitt DT/DE
Versatility and a first round talent that is dropping too. Woulda been top 20 last year. The bears need depth and continue to add strength and size on the interior.
2 via SF) Deone Buccannon S
Safety Play was terrible by the bears and this guy can flat out play.
3) Bashaud Breeland CB
3 via SF) Charles Sims RB
4) CJ Fiedorowicz TE
5) Tom Savage QB
6 via Tampa) Gabe Ikard C
6) Michael Campanaro WR
