  • Cimini: Jets haven't 'given up' on Geno Smith
    ESPN's Rich Cimini doesn't think the Jets have given up on impending free agent Geno Smith.

    Advice: While Cimini agrees that Smith could probably benefit from a change of scenery, he also points out that it wouldn't cost much to retain him. Smith hinted at a return to New York with a cryptic tweet earlier this week: "Don't act surprised... that's all I'm going to say!" Smith could be agreeable to a one-year, prove-it deal, though the Jets may have reservations following surgery to repair a torn ACL. That could sideline Smith until September or October. 38 minutes ago

  • Pats could pursue Michael Floyd in free agency
    ESPN's Mike Reiss believes the Patriots could be interested in bringing back impending free agent Michael Floyd, but only at the right price.

    Advice: Reiss believes the Patriots value Floyd's "physical presence," though his questionable chemistry with Tom Brady raised some red flags. Floyd didn't grasp New England's offense as quickly as the team had hoped, which led to him being a healthy scratch for the Patriots' last two playoff games. It probably won't cost much to keep Floyd, which could work to the Patriots' advantage. But if Floyd's price rises, it's doubtful New England would get in a bidding war for his services.

  • Jaguars were fed up with Thomas' blocking
    According to the Florida Times Union, Julius Thomas' poor blocking was one reason the Jaguars decided to move on from him.

    Advice: One source referred to Thomas' blocking as "non-existent" and said his presence was a "giveaway" to the defense that the Jaguars were passing or running away from him. Instead of the every-down player Jacksonville envisioned when signing him to a five-year, $46 million contract, Thomas only played about 25-32 snaps a game for the Jags while often battling injuries. It's been a tough couple of years for Thomas but maybe reuniting with Adam Gase in Miami will light a fire under him. Today, 5:25 am

  • Tyler Bray will compete for backup role
    Tyler Bray is expected to compete for the Chiefs' backup job.

    Advice: Bray held off Aaron Murray for a roster spot last preseason, but spent the year as a third-stringer behind Alex Smith and Nick Foles. He'll get a chance at the No. 2 role with Foles not expected back. Kansas City should add competition for Bray through the draft/free agency. Yesterday, 2:12 pm

  • Jay Cutler still not destined for the Jets?
    ESPN's Rich Cimini would "be surprised" if Jay Cutler ended up with the Jets.

    Advice: Cutler to the Jets seems to be the rumor du jour, but Cimini has consistently shot those rumors down. Still, the dots are easy to connect with Cutler's former position coach and former teammates in New York, and the Jets are likely looking for a veteran bridge of Cutler's ilk to get them to their future quarterback. The noise is unlikely to die until the Jets add someone else or Cutler signs with a different team. Yesterday, 6:53 am
