Browns signed OT Matt McCants.

Mar 27 - 11:04 AM

Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website believes owner Mike Brown would consider trading A.J. McCarron to the Browns for the "right price."

Hobson hints the Bengals could send McCarron and their No. 9 overall pick to the Browns in exchange for picks 12 and 33. The Bengals, along with most teams outside of the top five, want to move down in the first round and accumulate more selections. McCarron is probably a distant Plan B for the Browns, as they figure to make at least one more run at Jimmy Garoppolo.

Seahawks QB Trevone Boykin was arrested for marijuana possession and public intoxication early Monday morning in Dallas.

Boykin was the passenger in a car that crashed into a Dallas bar around 2 AM early Monday and injured five people. The female driver was allegedly drunk. Boykin is no stranger to trouble at bars, as he was arrested for hitting an officer in a bar fight while at TCU in 2015. He was Russell Wilson's backup last season as an UDFA after beating out Tarvaris Jackson for the job.

ESPN's Mike Wells believes it's "safe to say" Phillip Dorsett's job as the No. 3 receiver is "up for grabs" following the signing of Kamar Aiken.

Along with Aiken, Wells expects Chester Rogers to push Dorsett for snaps behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. With new GM Chris Ballard running the show and having no ties to Dorsett, it's fair to wonder if the former first-round speedster could even be available for trade. Dorsett has shown glimpses in two seasons, but he's totaled just 51 catches for 753 yards and three scores while battling injuries. Aiken is probably the early favorite for the No. 3 job.

A source told ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi that the Browns "would make another run" at trading for Jimmy Garoppolo at this week's Owners Meetings.

Convening in Phoenix for a few days of meetings, the Patriots' and Browns' top decision-makers -- Robert Kraft and Bill Belichick of the Patriots and Jimmy Haslam and Sashi Brown of the Browns -- will be in the same building, making for easier conversations of a potential deal. There have been several reports of the Patriots being adamant they won't trade Garoppolo, but the Browns are going to try their best. Grossi believes either Garoppolo or Cody Kessler will be the Week 1 starter. Brock Osweiler isn't viewed as having a realistic shot.

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

"That’s why we franchised him," said Allen. "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.
