The Vikings haven’t completely closed the door on MLB E.J. Henderson. Henderson has lost his starting job to newcomer Sam Cowart, but the Vikings would move Cowart to the weak side if Henderson has a strong training camp.
Snap! They haven't been to camp and EJ is out of a job.
The $8.5 million signing bonus the Broncos awarded LB Ian Gold in his return to Denver seemed a bit high, according to observers, but he looks like a perfect fit for Denver’s plans to shift to more of a 3-4 scheme. His return, after just one year in Tampa, more than likely signals a shift to the strong side for D.J. Williams, but Williams’ playmaking ability isn’t expected to suffer much as a result.
The Broncos playing a 3-4 with those LBs could be downright scary next season on defense.
We hear the Bucs continue to be high on USC WR Mike Williams despite their need at running back and may make him their pick at No. 5 overall.
Williams and Clayton? Could easily be the best young WR duo in the NFL for years to come. Wow!
One of our Niners insiders tells us C Jeremy Newberry “looks like a million bucks” and is progressing nicely from last year’s knee surgery, even though he will still probably miss the team’s three-day veteran minicamp that starts April 1. We hear the Niners are not as optimistic about QB Tim Rattay, who also is expected to miss the minicamp following postseason forearm surgery.
Great news on Newberry as he is what makes this team tick. This could be the beginning of the end for Rattay. Great guy, just not made for the NFL.
