Case Keenum to Broncos as NFL dominoes begin to fall

The Broncos are the first to act in the musical chairs of quarterbacks this offseason.

Denver will sign Case Keenum when free agency officially begins Wednesday, ESPN reported early Tuesday. That brings the Kirk Cousins sweepstakes down to three: the Jets, Vikings and Cardinals.

Former Cowboys defensive end Benson Mayowa is visiting the team, a source confirmed. Mayowa had six sacks in 2016 for the Cowboys, but just one last year.

The 26-year-old began his career with the Seahawks and spent some time with the Raiders before signing with the Cowboys in 2016. He had knee and back issues last year.

Dallas cut Mayowa on Wednesday. Unlike free agents still under contract, who must wait until Wednesday to sign, Mayowa is free to visit teams and sign whenever he wants. The NFL Network reported he is scheduled to visit the Redskins on Tuesday, and the Seahawks and Colts also have shown interest.

In April 2015, following 10 weeks of substance-abuse treatment at a Pennsylvania facility, Manziel moved to a $438,000 home in the suburb of Avon. Crowley moved in, too, opting to continue her degree online.

If he was going to stay on the right track, I was going to have to go up there, she said.

The clock is ticking and the Vikings remain the favorites to land Cousins, free-agent apple of the Jets’ eye.

Keenum heading to the Broncos reduces the Cousins Sweepstakes to the Vikings, Jets and Cardinals, in that order as of now.

McCarron and Bridgewater are younger bridge quarterbacks. McCarron has thrown six career TD passes. Bridgewater hasn’t played in nearly two years since wrecking his knee.

John Elway, who swung and missed on Paxton Lynch, has reportedly moved in on Keenum as his bridge quarterback before drafting his Quarterback of the Future with the fifth pick.
I would not surrender a first-round draft choice for Nick Foles �� unless I have to.

Seferian-Jenkins is drawing plenty of interest from other teams. The Packers, Colts, Dolphins, Seahawks and 49ers are all possible destinations for him, according to a source.

It is possible the Jets and Seferian-Jenkins could still make a deal, but it would be a surprise at this point.

Ricky Jean Francois expects to move on from New England

Defensive lineman Ricky Jean Francois opened the 2017 season with the Packers and closed it as a member of the Patriots, but he doesn’t expect to be back in New England when the 2018 season gets underway.

Jean Francois released a statement through a public relations representative on Friday thanking the Patriots for the opportunity to play for them and said the experience made me appreciate this game a lot more. He also said he’s hoping to find a team he can spend a few years with before retiring.

Detroit is also working on a deal for defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois , who played nine games, including postseason, in New England last season under then-defensive coordinator and current Liosn coach Matt Patricia.

Here are the other free-agent visits and signings that we’re monitoring on Wednesday:

Former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Allen Hurns is scheduled to visit the Dallas Cowboys and then the New York Jets this week, Rapoport reported, per a source informed of his situation. The Jags released the wide receiver on Tuesday before he was set to earn $7 million in non-guaranteed money.

It’s a buzzword, right? Analytics. Everybody wants to talk about it, Patricia said, via the Detroit News. But I think analytics have been involved with football forever. We call ’em tendencies. That’s all it was before and now it became &analytics.’ So I think that’s important. Every single coach does it, and there’s people in the organization who look at different things that maybe take a lot of time to analyze, while coaches are working on something else.

One of Patricia’s first moves in Detroit was hiring David Corrao as his director of football research, a position Patricia has been tight-lipped about but that is believed to be about analyzing strategies and tendencies. There’s little doubt that Patricia will rely on analytics as coach of the Lions, even as he says that’s nothing out of the ordinary.

The Eagles and general manager Howie Roseman have been manuvering around the salary cap to clear out space in order to acquire new talent.

NFL Combine rocked by rising prospect’s medical discovery

Utah defensive lineman Lowell Lotulelei says Michigan defensive lineman Maurice Hurst Jr. told him Saturday that he had been diagnosed with the same heart condition as Lotulelei’s older brother, Star.

The comments came shortly after ESPN.com first reported Hurst will not be allowed to participate in drills.

Word leaked just after defensive linemen and linebackers started talking to reporters at the NFL’s annual scouting combine in Indianapolis.

I just found out in the NFLPA meeting that we just had. He just said, ‘Star was your brother?’ And I said yeah. He’s like, ‘Man, I just got the same thing that he did,’ Lowell Lotulelei told reporters. Obviously I didn’t go through it, so I don’t really know what he’s feeling like. But I kind of understand the disappointment just because my brother trained just like he trained and you’re expecting one thing and getting another. I feel for him. It sucks. But I think he’ll be fine just like my brother was.

Five years ago, Star Lotulelei arrived at the combine as the expected first pick in that year’s draft.

Things changed dramatically after doctors identified an abnormal test on his heart.

Lotulelei then sought additional opinions, eventually was cleared to exercise and was taken by Carolina with the 14th overall selection in the 2013 draft. He has missed only four games in five NFL seasons.

The Jets have the money to spend. The question now is whether they can find enough players worth spending it on. That is the problem with NFL free agency — the players who usually become free agents do so for a reason. They have a flaw that makes them expendable to their current team, whether that be age, salary demand or production. It is what scares some teams off from spending big in free agency.

The Jets know they will end up overpaying players in free agency, but they can do that because of the war chest they currently have. The benefit of drafting so poorly from 2008-14 is having very few young players who need to be paid. Leonard Williams figures to be the next one, and he is not scheduled to hit free agency until 2020 if the Jets exercise his fifth-year option.

The Jets have targets in mind, and they hope to find players who can stick with their team for several years. That starts with quarterback Kirk Cousins, whose agent will surely get a call from the Jets on Monday to set up a visit with the top free agent. After Cousins, GM Mike Maccagnan will be looking for younger free agents who can be part of the core of the Jets.
