Julio Jones Not Concerned with Being Top Paid WR
Atlanta Falcons wideout Julio Jones said he is "comfortable" with how contract extension talks are going between his team and the Falcons per ESPN. Jones added there's "no pressure" to get a deal done at the moment and said he "doesn't really care" about being the NFL's top-paid wideout. It's positive news for the Falcons as Jones and his agent aren't making the negotiations into a media circus along with the fact Jones isn't solely focused on being the highest paid WR in the league.
Drew Lock A Possibility for the New York Giants
NFL.com's Tom Pelissero reports Drew Lock is "certainly" an option for the New York Giants in the first round of the upcoming NFL Draft. He reports the Giants spent extra time with Lock at his Pro Day as well. The Giants' draft plans have been up for speculation with some saying they'll forego a QB in the first round while others saying they will choose one with one of their first round picks.
Oakland Raiders Coach Jon Gruden Put Kyler Murray Through Private Workout
Gil Brandt reports Raiders head coach Jon Gruden and GM Mike Mayock had dinner with Kyler Murray along with putting him through a private workout session. Brandt reports Murray and Gruden were 90 minutes late to the throwing session as Gruden got carried away during a film breakdown. It's interesting that Gruden and Mayock are investing this amount of time into the former Heisman Trophy winner with Derek Carr still atop the Raiders depth chart at QB.
Murray's workout just finished up. He spent a half hour throwing, with Gruden running the entire workout. https://t.co/VeJhOIFw91— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) April 1, 2019
