NFL Combine - Day 2

It’s NFL Draft week and it’s time for those last-minute rumors and leaks to surface for all to question whether the tweets and statements are real or smokescreens.

The first rumor which piqued my was the rumored Cowboys interest in Michigan center Cesar Ruiz, which was reported by Peter King, along with many other NFL Draft rumors.

17. DALLAS. “It’s too high for a center,” said one personnel wag, “but they love the Michigan center (Cesar Ruiz), and they could trade down a few spots and still be sure of getting him.” Interesting: a plug-and-play heir to Travis Frederick.

Colorado Springs Gazette’s Woody Paige is reporting the Denver Broncos are interested in trading up in the first round for WR Jerry Jeudy.

After trading their first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft for S Minkah Fitzpatrick, the Pittsburgh Steelers show no sign of trading up in the first round, according to NFL Network reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala

Not an NFL Draft rumor but the Jacksonville Jaguars have just released WR Marqise Lee, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.

A good receiver, yes, but Lee has struggled to stay healthy.

Even more Jaguars news as Yannick Ngakoue tweeted at Jaguars Senior VP of Football Operations about getting traded and calling out the staff for “hiding” from Ngakoue.

The rumor of New York Jets S Jamal Adams being traded to the Dallas Cowboys doesn’t have much bearing, according to NFL Network reporter Jane Slater.

According to Chris Mortensen of ESPN, the Atlanta Falcons are expected to be the most aggressive team in the draft and could trade up into the top five.

49ers general manager John Lynch told reporters that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin has been mentioned in trade talks. He also added that they "came close a couple of times" on a deal.

Acquiring offensive tackle Trent Williams is reportedly "still on the table" for the Cleveland Browns according to Josina Anderson.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have acquired tight end Rob Gronkowski and a seventh-round pick from the New England Patriots in exchange for a fourth-round pick. Gronkowski had previous retired in March of 2019. The deal reunites him with quarterback Tom Brady.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Dallas Cowboys cut wide receiver Lance Lenoir.

RAVENS RUMOR:

lol, you thought. DeCosta is a steel trap.
