Around The League: NFL News & Notes 2.19.19

The NFL season may be over but that doesn't mean there's a shortage of NFL news to follow. Stay up to date with the latest happenings across the NFL with Ultimate Autographs.

Antonio Brown and Pittsburgh Steelers Agree It's Time to Move On

In the latest chapter of the Antonio Brown saga, Brown confirmed he met with Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney and "cleared the air on several issues." Still, it appears both sides are ready to move on and the Steelers' phone lines are likely to be busy the next few days as the team attempts to move Brown before March 17 when he's set to receive a guaranteed roster bonus.

 

New Orleans Saints RB Mark Ingram Not Afraid of the Free Agent Market

Appearing on The Rich Eisen Show, Ingram said he "wasn't afraid to bet on myself." Ingram did say he'd "love" to remain with the Saints and has had conversations with the organization, but it looks as though Ingram is ready to test his value on the free agent market. Creeping closer to the dreaded 30-years of age, Ingram is likely looking for a big payday to close out his career.

 

 

 

 

Report: DeMarcus Lawrence Won't Sign Franchise Tag Again

NFL.com's Tom Pelissero is reporting the Dallas Cowboys' defensive star will not sign the franchise tag if tendered again. The team and Lawrence will have until mid-July to put together a long-term contract together and it's fully believed Jerry Jones won't let it turn into a Le'Veon Bell situation. Still, Bell has set a precedent that NFL players are willing to sit out the entire year.

 

 

 

Rob Gronkowski Giving NFL Future "A Lot of Thought" Per Agent

Appearing on NFL Live, Rob Gronkowski's agent Drew Rosenhaus provided an update of sorts on whether or not Gronk will be back in a New England Patriots uniform next season.

"He’s thinking it through, he’s giving it a lot of thought... I imagine a decision will happen in the next couple of weeks.” (via ESPN's Field Yates)

Gronkowski and stepping away from football has become a yearly storyline in the NFL offseason but it's no surprise the Patriots star is exploring options for life after football considering his injury history.

 

 

 

 

 

Dallas Cowboys Expected to Make a Run to Upgrade at Safety; Earl Thomas an Early Favorite

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expressed interest in upgrading at safety, opening the floodgates for talk of Earl Thomas to the Cowboys to start again. Last season, the Seattle Seahawks and Cowboys were allegedly in talks to deal Thomas to the Cowboys but couldn't agree on an asking price. Thomas is coming off a major injury but it would not be surprising to see Jones sign the former Seahawks star.
