Gary Kubiaksure has the clout of a Super Bowl winning head coach these days. The Broncos head man not only met with Johnny Manziel about possibly joining the Broncos but he also apparently met with 49ersquarterback Colin Kaepernick recently. Most reports had Kaepernick only meeting with the Broncos’ John Elway.
“We were granted the opportunity to have that visit [with Kaepernick] and that was good and very impressive,” Kubiak told Troy Renck of the Denver Post.
Elsewhere in QB carousel news, the Jets want offensive tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson to take a pay cut in order to re-sign Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Confusion at the top
Another big piece of news/rumor involves the Tennessee Titans and their upcoming No. 1 overall pick. It now seems entirely possible that the Titans could trade the pick.
“I would say that with each day we inch closer to the draft, the discussions probably become a little bit more serious, if you will,” Titans GM Jon Robinson told the Tennessean. “That’s something we’re going back and forth with. Do we stay put with where we’re at, or do we really entertain the thought of moving?
“I would say the interest has increased some. I wouldn’t say there are 31 teams calling, but there are certainly teams that have interest in moving up.”
There is not clear-cut No. 1 pick in this year’s draft as most mock drafts had the Titans snagging Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosaa few months back but now Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil seems to be the popular consensus pick for the Titans at the top. Many other names are trickling up the board recently as well.
