Lobby watching at NFL meetings
Lobby watching Sunday during check-in at this week’s NFL annual owners’ meeting: _Washington head coach Jay Gruden, Andy Dalton’s first NFL offensive coordinator, says his old quarterback is virtually golden. Gruden just watched wide receiver Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu snare big deals in free agency, but what else is new? Gruden’s successor in Cincinnati, Hue Jackson, just went to Cleveland as head coach. And that’s where Bengals slot receiver Andrew Hawkins got a big deal two years ago.

NFL Free-Agent Moves That Could Heavily Impact the 2016 Draft
The 2016 NFL draft is now a little more than a month away. Though the collective football world has been gearing up for this massive event for many months, Day 1 of the draft will officially kick off on April 28. We don't know exactly how the draft is going to unfold, but we are beginning to get a clearer picture of what the early rounds could look like. Thanks to this year's edition of free agency, that picture appears quite a bit different than it did a couple of weeks ago.

Robert Griffin III concludes two-day visit with Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns tried to get quarterback Robert Griffin III once. Now they’re considering it again. The team had RG III in for a two-day visit that wrapped up Saturday, news that was almost as surprising as Joe Haden's ankle surgery announcement Friday.

General manager Kevin Colbert told reporters Sunday at the NFL owners meetings in Boca Raton, Florida, that the franchise has had "none whatsoever" thoughts about cutting the talented Bryant, who has 17 touchdowns in 23 NFL games but has struggled away from the team.

Amy Adams Strunk: Titans' ownership will get resolved
When the Tennessee Titans began their general manager and head coach searches in early January, there was an assumption in league circles that the heirs of Bud Adams would soon be putting the franchise up for sale. Despite ownership structure issues that have landed on the NFL's radar, controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk has made it clear since then that the team is staying in the family.

John Spanos: Donald Brown a 'perfect Patriots signing'
The New England Patriots' recent addition of veteran tailback Donald Brown failed to send shockwaves through the NFL for obvious reasons. The former Colts first-round draft pick averaged just 3.14 yards per carry in two seasons as an afterthought third-stringer for San Diego. Although the Chargers released Brown earlier this month, team president John Spanos believes the 28-year-old will turn his career around in New England.
