Mike Lombardi doesn’t think Jimmy Garoppolo traded, but 49ers might be best option

The former Patriots executive talked about Jimmy Garopplo, and how he thinks the trade market plays out. Everybody has an opinion on how this offseason’s quarterback market will shake out, and while it is amusing to hear what The Game has to say on it, there are slightly more valuable resources in the media. Former NFL executive Mike Lombardi recently made an appearance with Bill Simmons on The Ringer podcast. They discussed the various players available via free agency and trade, and wrapped it up with discussion about Jimmy Garoppolo. Simmons is a Patriots fan, while Lombardi has...

Could Tony Romo play for Washington in 2017? Here's what Cowboys, Redskins would need to do

Kate Hairopoulos, Cowboys beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights:Question: Which rumored team do you think is the best fit for Tony Romo?Hairopoulos: The Texans, if they can figure out the financial gymnastics to make it happen, considering Brock Osweiler's contract. Romo would be playing with the aid of a fierce defense, particularly if J.J. Watt is healthy. Being close to the fam in Dallas would be a plus, too. Can't you just see the Romos cruising up and down I-45, filling up at...

ESPN: Peterson, Vikings Haven’t Talked Contract

Ben Goessling is reporting that the two sides have not discussed the running back’s deal. In a post that I did here a few days ago, I stated that I thought it was a foregone conclusion that the Minnesota Vikings and running back Adrian Peterson had already started discussing Peterson’s contract for the 2017 season. Peterson’s base salary of $11.75 million has to be picked up by the team before the start of the new league year, and he’s due a $6 million roster bonus on 11 March. According to Ben Goessling of ESPN, Peterson and the Vikings have not, in fact, talked about a contract...

A closer look at a potential 2017 draft pick for the Cowboys, defensive end Tim Williams. Over the next few months, we’ll be looking at prospects in the upcoming 2017 NFL Draft from a decidedly Cowboys point of view.

Packers free agency: Christine Michael insurance policy if Eddie Lacy doesn’t re-sign

If the Green Bay Packers don’t re-sign Eddie Lacy, Christine Michael could act as an insurance policy. Michael, too, is a free agent, but won’t cost much to bring back.
