Browns in-limbo team president Mike Holmgren denied Monday that he is interested in the Cowboys' head coaching job.

Rumors surfaced of Holmgren's interest over the weekend, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated he was "flattered" to hear of them, even if he isn't interested. "I don't know how any of that stuff gets started," Holmgren said. "The last time I talked to anybody about my future was in this (Browns) room. I honestly don't know what I want to do." Holmgren has repeatedly flamed out as a personnel shot-caller, but he's always been a successful head coach.

On his GM Street podcast, The Ringer's Mike Lombardi suggested Georgia RB Sony Michel could slip in the draft for medical reasons.

"There's a lot of teams telling me there's a medical concern here, so he could slip a little bit," said Lombardi, a longtime NFL executive who most recently worked for the Patriots. "His medical grade is a little iffy." Lombardi admitted he doesn't know exactly what the medical issue is. On tape, Michel is arguably the second-best running back in this class behind only Saquon Barkley.

The girlfriend of Cowboys DT David Irving has retracted domestic violence allegations she made against him.

Frisco (TX) police took the girlfriend's allegations seriously enough to launch an investigation, which will likely continue despite the woman's retraction. "I was very upset and made some allegations that were false," the woman clarified on Monday. "David did not put his hands on me at any time." Irving already has a checkered off-field history and is playing 2018 on a one-year tender.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini expects the Jets to decide between Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen at the No. 3 overall pick.

Conventional pre-draft wisdom is that the Jets are zeroed in on Mayfield, but Cimini passes along "some support" for Rosen inside the organization. The Jets likely have similar grades on Mayfield, Rosen, and Sam Darnold, explaining why they were comfortable moving up to No. 3 in the draft. They'll simply take whichever quarterback falls. With Darnold expected to be drafted at No. 1 and Saquon Barkley favored to go to the Giants at No. 2, Gang Green's decision will likely come down to Mayfield-versus-Rosen.

Per NFL Network's Jane Slater, the Cowboys envision Boise State LB Leighton Vander Esch as "(Brian) Urlacher 2.0."

It's an aggressive comparison to the first-ballot Hall of Famer, but not an uncommon one. NFL draft insider Tony Pauline passed along rumors Vander Esch was drawing Urlacher comparisons from scouts shortly after the college season. In addition to wide receiver, the Cowboys have a big need at linebacker. They want to keep Sean Lee on the weak side, move Jaylon Smith to the strong side, and find a true three-down "Mike."

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said Monday that the Bills are unlikely to trade up to No. 2 in the draft, but may make a move to No. 5 or 6.

The Bills, of course, are in the quarterback market and have two first-rounders, two second-round picks, and two third-rounders to use as trade bait. "From what I understand, it's not going to be one of those things where they just sell out and (trade) all the way to No. 2 with the Giants," Rapoport said. "I would be at this moment surprised if that happens." Rapoport considers a deal with the Broncos at No. 5 or Colts at No. 6 much more likely.

Chargers GM Tom Telesco confirmed Melvin Gordon's fifth-year option will be picked up.

Gordon averaged below 4.0 yards per carry in each of his first three years, but the Bolts are comfortable with his progress in the passing game and ability to handle a near-full workload. Gordon is again on track to be a first-round fantasy pick, although the Chargers have openly stated they are interested in adding a running back. Gordon turned 25 earlier this month.

Raiders signed CB Daryl Worley, formerly of the Eagles.

Worley was cut by the Eagles after being arrested for DUI, violation of the Uniform Firearms Act, and disorderly conduct fighting on April 15. A 2016 third-round pick of the Panthers, Worley put some promising moments on tape as a rookie but struggled last season and fell into a rotation for snaps.

ABC Dallas reports Cowboys DL David Irving is being investigated for domestic violence.

Irving was accused of domestic violence by his ex-girlfriend in what he called a social media "hack," but Frisco, Tex. police are taking the matter seriously enough to launch an investigation. Irving signed his restricted free agent tender just last week. He notched seven sacks in eight games in 2017. Irving served a four-game suspension for violating the league's PED policy last season, and is now looking at something much more serious.

49ers GM John Lynch has said the team will release Reuben Foster if his domestic violence charges are proven true.

"If charges proven true, if he did hit this young lady, he won't be part of this organization," was Lynch's blunt statement. Lynch did add that "patience is the right approach right now." Foster recently had a misdemeanor gun charge dismissed but is still facing felony gun and domestic violence charges. Lynch's words are unusually blunt for this sort of situation, and paint an ominous picture of Foster's 49ers future.

Raiders exercised WR Amari Cooper's fifth-year team option for 2019.

There was some manufactured drama over whether the Raiders would extend Cooper's rookie contract by a year, but this was always going to be the outcome. Slated to make $3.53 million this season, Cooper will be due roughly $13.9 million in 2019. The option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Raiders could still walk away unless Cooper fails his physical before the start of the next league year. Wildly inconsistent through his first three NFL campaigns, 24-year-old (in June) Cooper has nevertheless already posted two 1,000-yard seasons.

Tom Brady's agent fully expects his client to return for the 2018 season.

The "Brady might retire" story appeared mortally wounded mere hours after it arrived in the world, but it now sounds officially dead. Brady forcing the Patriots' hand with Jimmy Garoppolo and then retiring would have been an all-time betrayal. It also never seemed to have an actual chance of happening. Fresh off winning an MVP award at age 40 and throwing for over 500 yards in the Super Bowl, Brady will enter 2018 remaining one of the very best players in the league.
