Bills C Eric Wood said he is “100 percent” recovered from the broken leg he sustained last season and has not experienced any setbacks.
“It went great. I missed one day the first week of OTAs and we had planned that if I had any setbacks or got too sore I would take a day off, but I didn’t need a day off the rest of the time,” said Wood. “So I’m encouraged. I definitely should be 100 percent barring anything crazy happening over the next month. So I’m looking forward to it.”
Former Eagles HC Chip Kelly disputed reports from 2015 that the Eagles offered the Titans a package of picks to trade up for QB Marcus Mariota.
“That’s all speculation that’s out there, you hear stories that ‘we offered this; we offered that.’ We didn’t offer anything because they weren’t taking any offers for it,” said Kelly.
Kelly added that the Titans were committed to taking Mariota and never considered trading down from No. 2 overall.
“With Tennessee, they weren’t moving off the pick. Rightly so,” said Kelly. “They were looking for the same thing we were, to get themselves a really top-quality quarterback. It really wasn’t like…. We didn’t really get into a conversation of what we can offer or what we can’t offer, because they made it known that they really weren’t looking to trade the pick.”
New Colts ILB Jon Bostic said he is “finally healthy” and ready to play after missing last season due to a broken foot.
“I’m excited to come into the season finally healthy and I’m ready to get out and show them what I can do,” said Bostic, via Kevin Bowen of the Colts’ official site.
Colts DC Ted Monachino added that Bostic is a player that can do a “lot of things very well.”
“This Jon Bostic character,” said Monachino. “He’s a guy that can do an awful lot of things very well.”
- Rich Tandler of CSN Mid-Atlantic expects the Redskins to keep four tight ends on their active roster, including Jordan Reed, Vernon Davis, Niles Paul, and fifth-round rookie Jeremy Sprinkle.
- Tandler could see the Redskins cutting RB Mack Brown because it would not make sense to carry four running backs on the active roster.
