The New York Jets signed cornerback Juston Burris, offensive tackle Brandon Shell and punter Lachlan Edwards, three of their seven draft picks, and waived Joe Anderson, the wide receiver who made headlines by standing outside Houston's stadium with a sign looking for an NFL job last season.
Fourth-round draft pick Evan Boehm could start right away at center for the Arizona Cardinals. Third-rounder Brandon Williams might take a bit longer. After all, he's only played one season at cornerback, one of the most challenging positions in football.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence hopes to have his four-game suspension overturned or reduced, similar to what happened with cornerback Orlando Scandrick in 2014.
A former Arizona State linebacker who was set to join the Cincinnati Bengals as an undrafted free agent has been charged with tampering with evidence after a fatal shooting outside a suburban Cleveland bar.
We hear of a medical scare involving Don Shula and we take it personally in South Florida because of all he has meant. To Miami Dolphins fans, he is the towering symbol of better days, of the best days. To this community, he is family. There are prayers and concern when you learn Shula has been hospitalized at age 86, but there is wistfulness, too, a reckoning, one more cause to face our own mortality.
It was notable that the 49ers had three picks in quick succession late in the sixth round and used the three selections on: 1. quarterback Jeff Driskel, 2. running back Kelvin Taylor and 3. wide receiver Aaron Burbridge. They were the only three skill players the 49ers -- who ended up with 11 picks total -- drafted. This on a team that scored the fewest points in the league last year, ranked 31st in total yards, and that has all sorts of questions at quarterback, receiver and --beyond starter Carlos Hyde -- running back.
