There’s almost too much speculation to keep track of these days, but that won’t stop us from trying. Here’s your Wednesday speculation round-up:
Don Banks says Mike Shanahan loves Brandon Weedon and may trade down to get him. Obviously this would take the Redskins out of any Robert Griffin III trade up scenarios. It’s possible at this point that the Browns are the only team looking to trade up. Which makes it less likely that they would need to trade up. Which increases the possibility of the Rams taking Matt Kalil at #2. Which increases the possibility of a lot of Viking fans crying on draft day.
Michael Gehlken of NBC San Diego says the Chargers are “reluctant” to use the franchise tag on Vincent Jackson. This comes as good news to those who hope Jackson lands with the Vikings. Many think Jackson should be the Vikes’ #1 free agency target but I actually like Dwayne Bowe better for his red zone talents. Speaking of Bowe…
Scott Pioli said on a radio show that the Chiefs would love to have Bowe back. And what are the words of general managers worth this time of year? Less than squat. Bottom line for the Chiefs is, they can only franchise one player. After signing Stanford Routt, it seems unlikely the tag would be used on Brandon Carr. This increases the likelihood of the tag being used on Bowe. Which is good news for Viking fans who like Brandon Carr and not so much Bowe.
It wouldn’t be a speculation round-up without a Mayock section. This isn’t really a speculation link it’s just Mayock talking about Robert Griffin III and Andrew Luck. I personally can’t get enough of Mayock’s lisp. And insight.
