Seahawks GM downplays chances of Richard Sherman trade
As has often been the case for the past month, Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider had to address the latest Monday about star cornerback Richard Sherman and his future. From Schneider's position, nothing the Seahawks have heard thus far leads him to believe that Sherman will be traded. ''Right now we've kind of moved past it and if somebody calls and goes crazy with something then we'll discuss it again,'' Schneider said.
Former Bengals RB Rex Burkhead explains why he picked Patriots
The New England Patriots have been adding running backs to their roster like there?s a buy-one, get-two sale going on. Which makes former Cincinnati Bengals running back Rex Burkhead?s decision to join all the more confusing. ?It?s the tradition here,? Burkhead said Tuesday per Henry McKenna of Patriots Wire. ?Coach [Bill] Belichick?s instilled the attitude. You can tell on film just watching the guys, they play hard and football is kind of their passion. And that?s what I wanted to be a part of. When I came on my visit, I got a glimpse of that just meeting with the coaches. And I could definitely see myself fitting in here.? Just from his wording, it seems that Burkhead liked the mentality New
Report: Malcolm Butler trade ?less attractive? to Saints
The Saints have shown interest in Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler for some time this offseason and met with him before he signed his restricted free agent tender with New England, but the need to send the 11th overall pick to the Patriots if they signed him to an offer sheet that the Patriots didn?t match was a big obstacle to bringing him to New Orleans. Now that Butler has signed his tender, the Saints could negotiate different compensation with the Patriots in a trade. The chances of that happening may not be great, however. Peter King of reports that the Saints still have interest, but that the thought of dealing picks for Butler before signing him to a big contract extension

Hawks undergoing turnover at linebacker, might add more in draft
In terms of players signed and let go, no position on the Seahawks has had more turnover during the offseason than linebacker. Seattle signed three free agents ? Michael Wilhoite, Terence Garvin and Arthur Brown ? hoping to find more depth for the inside spots, possibly locate a new strongside linebacker and improve special teams. In the process, Seattle let Brock Coyle, the backup middle linebacker the last three seasons, leave via free agency (he signed with the 49ers) and have yet to sign Mike Morgan, the starter at the strongside spot last season and a part of the team since 2011. The mainstays of the Seattle linebacking corps, though, remain ? middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and weakside
With Smith in fold, Chiefs still open to drafting QBs
Alex Smith has seen the young quarterbacks walking through the doors of the Chiefs' facility the last few weeks, each wanting nothing more than to one day take his job. The veteran quarterback is firmly entrenched as the starter in Kansas City, despite constant debate over whether he can lead his team to the Super Bowl. General manager John Dorsey and coach Andy Reid are firmly in his corner, and ultimately those voices are the only ones that matter.

Who should the Jets pick at six?
Ralph Vacchiano | Facebook | Twitter | Archive Jets GM Mike Maccagnan has spent a lot of time this offseason looking at the quarterbacks in this draft. But that isn't necessarily unusual. In fact, he said, the Jets "feel pretty good" about the quarterbacks they already have. "We have the two young guys (Christian Hackenberg and Bryce Petty) and we like both of them in terms of ability and potential," the Jets GM said during his pre-draft press briefing on Monday. "We feel pretty good about the guys we have." That hasn't stopped him from looking, of course, and at least considering the possibility of the Jets drafting a quarterback with the No. 6 overall pick. They have scouted the top quarterbacks
Bengals set to hold onto McCarron for at least 1 more year
CINCINNATI (AP) ? Bengals backup quarterback AJ McCarron is looking at another year of barely getting on the field, and maybe longer. With the draft a few days away, Cincinnati has given no indication it's willing to trade him to a team that would give him a bigger role. It's a challenging situation for McCarron, who proved he could lead a team into the playoffs in 2015 if given the opportunity. "As a competitor, you always want your chance to play," McCarron said Monday. "But it will happen. I just have to wait my time. I believe that, and I trust in my ability to keep showcasing what I can do and then get my opportunity." The two-time national champion at Alabama got his chance when Andy Dalton
Report: Packers? coaches ?incensed? Ted Thompson let T.J. Lang walk
When the Packers decided not to out-bid the Lions for veteran guard T.J. Lang last month, it was business as usual: The Packers don?t overspend in free agency, and when a soon-to-be 30-year-old guard with a hip injury hits free agency, that?s the type of player you?d expect to leave in Green Bay. Nonetheless, it apparently didn?t sit well with Green Bay?s coaching staff. According to Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Packers? coaches were incensed that G.M. Ted Thompson let Lang get away in free agency. McGinn suggests that longtime Packers offensive line coach James Campen was working hard to keep Lang and was particularly upset when the Packers didn?t keep him. If that?s true,
