How the New York Jets Spent the 142nd Pick of the NFL Draft

The Jets got quite a haul from that pick. Due to their finish in 2014, the Jets received the sixth pick in the fifth round of the 2015 NFL Draft. It was the 142nd overall pick. As a fifth rounder, it was reasonable to temper expectations. As it turns out, the Jets got quite a haul from that pick. Back in March, the Jets traded the pick to Chicago for Brandon Marshall. Teams seldom get fair value trading stars in the NFL. Sometimes the best use for a late round pick is in a trade. That wasn't the end, though. The evening of March 10 was a big one for the Jets. Darrelle Revis announced he was...

Bruce Irvin tweets Seahawks declined fifth-year option

As expected, the Seattle Seahawks have not picked up their fifth-year contract option on linebacker Bruce Irvin, at least according to Irvin himself. Late on Sunday — the league-mandated deadline for teams deciding whether or not to offer 2012 first-round picks a fifth-year on their rookie deals — Irvin tweeted what appeared to be his […]

La'el Collins: 'A lot of interest,' from NFL teams if he is cleared

La'el Collins: 'A lot of interest,' from NFL teams if he is cleared

Should the Giants be among the teams trying to sign Collins? Let's talk about La'el Collins. Beginning with Day 2 of the now-completed 2015 NFL Draft the Big Blue view Twitter timeline, and the comments sections of various draft-related posts here on the web site, have been filled with fans begging the Giants select the former LSU offensive lineman. Or, now that he is an undrafted free agent, bring him in. "We thought about La'el the whole draft because he is sitting up there, but we were going to pass on that," Giants Vice President of Player Evaluation Marc Ross said after the...

Vikings reportedly pick up the fifth-year options on Matt Kalil as well as Harrison Smith

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com The Vikings on Monday picked up the fifth-year contract options for 2016 for both tackle Matt Kalil and safety Harrison Smith, according to Fox Sports. Monday was the deadline for Minnesota to decide on those options for players taken in the first round of the 2012 draft. Kalil, selected No. 4 in that draft, is now on the books for $11.096 million in 2016 and Smith, who went No. 29, for $5.278 million. Smith’s decision was a no-brainer. There was some debate on whether the option would be exercised on Kalil, who made the Pro Bowl […] The post...

2016 NFL Mock Draft: Eagles draft a safety in the first round

Because it's never too early to look ahead to next year. One of the best things about the NFL Draft being over is that it means there are no more mock drafts. OR SO YOU THOUGHT! That's right, we already have a 2016 mock draft to look at for next year's class. I personally love the idea of a 2016 mock at this time of the year because it's hilarious. It's just like the power rankings that get released seconds after the Super Bowl ends (yes, those do actually take place). This mock comes to us SB Nation's Dan Kadar. The draft order is based on the latest Super Bowl odds. The Eagles are...
