With players arriving in Indianapolis for this week’s Scouting Combine, we’re starting to hear about which prospects won’t be doing on-field drills the next few days.

Joe Judge continues to add to his first coaching staff. According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, the Giants are hiring Amos Jones.

The XFL has gotten one thing very right: It has made the kickoff both more compelling and safer. And the NFL is paying attention. Via Mark Maske of the Washington Post, Packers CEO Mark Murphy said Monday that he’s intrigued by the XFL’s approach to putting the ball in play at the start of each […]
The Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott have each had a fair amount to say in the media about his bid for a new contract, but they apparently haven’t been saying anything to each other. Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said on Monday, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News, that the team has […]
Quarterback Joe Burrow’s hands were measured at 9 inches at the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis on Monday, which falls on the shorter side of the spectrum but he can take some solace in not being the smallest of any quarterback in this year’s draft class. As it turns out, the LSU product doesn’t even have […]
Teams interested in seeing former Tennessee edge defender Darrell Taylor work out ahead of the draft will have to wait a little while for the opportunity. Taylor had surgery to repair a stress fracture in his leg last month and Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that he’s not healthy enough to work out at […]
Longtime Patriots assistant coach Dante Scarnecchia announced in January he was retiring. But he’s still doing some things for the organization.

Matt Schaub had to start a game for the Falcons last year, and he threw for 460 yards. That has to be worth something. As it turns out, it’s worth $2 million. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the Falcons have picked up the option for 2020 on the veteran quarterback’s contract. That emergency […]
The only thing Chase Young could do to raise his draft stock at this point would be to wake up as a quarterback. Since that seems unlikely, he’s not going to push himself this week. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Ohio State pass-rusher won’t work out for teams at the Scouting Combine […]
Orlando Brown Jr. was a good player in college. He was an awful specimen at the 2018 Scouting Combine. But now that he’s regarded as a good player again, he’s willing to share the story of overcoming that perception. “For me personally, I know that I had the worst Combine in NFL history,” Brown told […]

Smith’s former teammate, Darren Woodson, strongly disagrees with the Hall of Famer’s take. “It’s a slap in the face for people to say he should take less,” Woodson said, via Clarence Hill of […]

Defensive tackle Marcell Dareus isn’t the only Jaguars defender who will have his contract option declined by the team this offseason.
