Redskins president Bruce Allen remained adamant Sunday that Kirk Cousins isn't leaving Washington.

"That’s why we franchised him," said Allen, a known liar. "Kirk and I have talked almost a dozen times this offseason, and we get to laugh when we hear these different rumors. We haven’t talked to anyone." Allen's historical lack of trustworthiness renders his words insignificant. Cousins will become far likelier to stay with the Redskins if the draft comes and goes without him being traded.

NFL Network's Kim Jones reports the Giants have had a multi-year contract offer on the table for free agent Johnathan Hankins "for weeks."

It's not breaking news, but is noteworthy at a time when Hankins' market has otherwise gone cold. Giants beat writers continue to report there's a good chance Hankins will stay in New York, and that still seems the likeliest outcome.

Bears CB Deiondre' Hall and Packers CB Makinton Dorleant were arrested in Cedar Falls, Iowa on Saturday night.

Both played college football at Northern Iowa. Hall was cited for disorderly conduct, public intoxication, and interference, while Dorleant was booked for interference. Witnesses told KWWL in Iowa that they believed Hall was hit with a taser by Cedar Falls police. The incident reportedly happened at a bar called "Sharky's" near or on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

Thomas Rawls is expected to be a "complement off the bench" following the Seahawks' addition of Eddie Lacy.

Lacy is penciled in as the starter, with Rawls and C.J. Prosise mixing in as complementary backs. Prosise's role should be the most secure as Seattle's best passing-game option, and arguably carries the most fantasy appeal in PPR leagues. As Lacy weighed in close to 270 pounds during free agency, we still wouldn't rule out Rawls or Prosise out-touching him this season.

Steelers GM Kevin Colbert declined to provide a timetable on Le'Veon Bell's (groin surgery) recovery.

"Our goal is to have him 100 percent for the 2017 season," is all Colbert would offer. Bell underwent surgery to repair a "core muscle injury" on March 13. Bell's recovery will almost certainly sideline him for all of OTAs, but he should be ready by or early in training camp. 25-year-old Bell has dealt with foot, groin, and multiple knee injuries entering his fifth NFL season.

Theo Riddick underwent surgery on both of his wrists after the season.

The injuries cost Riddick the final four games of last season. He is expected to be a full participant at OTAs. While roles throughout the rest of Detroit's backfield remain in flux and could be affected by the draft, Riddick should be locked in as the team's passing-down specialist. Under OC Jim Bob Cooter, the Lions have embraced a quick-pass offense that suits Riddick's skill set. He will again be a worthwhile mid-round investment in 2017 PPR drafts.

Browns coach Hue Jackson claims he is preparing as if Brock Osweiler will be on the team this season.

"Obviously, he's a player on our team and we're going to treat him just like we do all of our other quarterbacks until he's not," said Jackson. It's classic coach-speak and really doesn't mean much of anything. Assuming the Patriots hold on to Jimmy Garoppolo, the Browns should select a quarterback early in the draft, possibly as soon as 12th overall. The Browns have shopped Osweiler, but releasing him is the more likely outcome. He's not long for Cleveland.

Gary Myers of the New York Daily News doesn't believe the Giants are an option for free agent Adrian Peterson.

Peterson was arrested on charges of child abuse after hitting and injuring his child in 2014. After last year's PR nightmare involving Josh Brown, the Giants are staying far away from any player that might generate controversy. The Giants could use another back after releasing Rashad Jennings, but for now, it looks like they're content splitting the work between Paul Perkins and Shane Vereen. Peterson's market continues to be nonexistent.

In a letter to Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf, commissioner Roger Goodell expressed skepticism in Oakland's bid to keep the Raiders from relocating to Las Vegas.

A group of investors led by Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott recently submitted a $1.3 billion proposal for a development project in Oakland that would include a new 55,000-seat football stadium to replace the Coliseum. That would be in lieu of the 65,000-seat dome the Raiders are proposing to build in Las Vegas. Bank of America has agreed to bankroll the Raiders' move to Vegas, contributing $650 million of the $1.9 billion needed to finance the new stadium. In his criticism of Oakland's stadium proposal, Goodell argued that "Key issues that we have identified as threshold considerations are simply not resolvable in a reasonable time." The Raiders' move to Las Vegas will be brought to a vote Monday in Phoenix at the Annual League Meeting.

The Cardinals held a private workout with Texas Tech QB Pat Mahomes on Thursday.

With Carson Palmer in the twilight of his career, it's time for the Cardinals to start looking for his successor. Coach Bruce Arians said there are "five or six really good arms in this draft" and Mahomes could be one of them. Mahomes has also worked out for the Chargers, who are in a similar position with Philip Rivers nearing the end of his career. Even if it's not Mahomes, the Cardinals will certainly address quarterback in next month's draft.

Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times Union would "guess" the Jaguars won't pick up Blake Bortles' fifth-year option for 2018.

Exercising Bortles' option would have been a no-brainer a year ago after his breakout 2015 campaign. Rather than taking a step forward, Bortles showed significant regression in 2016 while struggling with his mechanics. O'Halloran is only making an educated guess, but Bortles certainly hasn't developed into the franchise QB the Jags were hoping for when they drafted him third overall in 2014. Jacksonville has until May 2 to pick up his option.

Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News believes it's "only a matter of time" until the Bills fire GM Doug Whaley.

Whaley has been at odds with new coach Sean McDermott seemingly since the day McDermott was hired. Sullivan believes Whaley has already lost the power struggle, with McDermott emerging as the team's "voice." We saw this play out early in the month when Buffalo kept Tyrod Taylor on a restructured deal, a decision that was heavily influenced by McDermott. Sullivan believes Whaley's exodus could occur after the draft. At that point, McDermott would likely bring in a GM of his choosing. Sullivan mentioned Panthers director of player personnel Don Gregory as a possible replacement for Whaley.

The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports "it’s doubtful" the Browns give suspended WR Josh Gordon another chance.

It falls in line with coach Hue Jackson's stance on Gordon. The Browns are expected to shop Gordon if he gets reinstated, but could ultimately release him. Gordon’s status should be known before OTAs.

Seahawks LB Michael Wilhoite is expected to compete for the starting strongside job.

Wilhoite has a chance to replace Michael Morgan, but isn't more than a short-term placeholder. He'll likely face competition from a draft pick in training camp. Wilhoite was one of the worst run stoppers in the league on limited snaps last year, and is below average in coverage.

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein believes Detroit is a potential landing spot for free agent DT Johnathan Hankins.

The Lions haven’t been connected to Hankins, but he’s from Detroit and would give them a run-stopper next to Haloti Ngata. With just $10 million in cap space, it’s hard to see them fitting him on a short-term deal. Hankins wants $8M annually.
