NFL News Summary for Friday, June 9th, 2023

June 11, 2023

Cleveland Browns

  • Elijah Moore #1 standout “Moore was positioned both in the slot, outside and even in the backfield throughout the seven-on-seven drills, which shows the Browns are taking a full dive into exploring the ways they can use his speed and versatility in the offense.”

Dallas Cowboys 

  • Cowboys OC Brian Schottenheimer on WR Brandin Cooks: “Jalen Tolbert has had an incredible camp. If you talk to Jalen, what he’s gonna tell you is he has spent a ton of time with Brandin. Here’s a guy who has been there, done that, and he wants to encourage and invest in the younger guys. Those guys spend a lot of time together. What Brandin brings us is way more than just speed. It’s really fun to watch him run, but what I love is the competitor and the way he’s encouraging that entire room of receivers. It’s been awesome. … Drew Brees and I are very close. When we made the move to get Brandin, the very first text I got was from Drew. He was like, ‘You are gonna love this guy.’ And Drew is a hard guy to give out a lot of positive reinforcement.”

Detroit Lions

  • Jameson Williams had 2 significant drops today after a standout day yesterday, but “Amon-Ra St. Brown continues to be the most consistent player on the field.” #Lions

Los Angeles Rams

  • McVay on Puka Nacua: “He’s a guy that we’re expecting him to come in, expecting him to be able to contribute and compete. Every spot is going to be earned on this team, but I really like what he’s done and I think it’s a credit to everybody around him and his conscientiousness.”

Minnesota Vikings

  • “We’ll turn the stones over on that one,” Robert Saleh says on RB Dalvin Cook. He adds he’s not sure how the money would work. #Jets 

New England Patriots

  • #Patriots QB Mac Jones has a nice stretch where he completed a deep dig to Parker and a seam to Henry into tight coverage. A stretch that looked like what BOB is going for in the early stages of the offense.

New York Jets

  • * Garrett Wilson ends the offseason with another strong practice. Looks primed for another big year. Ditto, D.J. Reed. * Most important development: C.J. Uzomah leaves with an apparent leg injury.
  • “I love Garrett Wilson. He’s got all the talent in the building. You need your best players to be the best people on your team, he’s definitely one of them. At least one time in practice he does something where you say WOW.”- Aaron Rodgers
  • Aaron Rodgers threads one to Garrett Wilson, but the crazy part deals with where his eyes were for 99% of the play: looking towards the other side of the field the entire time and didn’t look GW’s way until he simultaneously decided to start throwing motion. Not a look … then throw. A look while throwing.
  • Garrett Wilson just made a pretty absurd catch deep down the seam on a pass from Boyle. Wilson was great last year. He has had a very good start to Year 2. Flashes every day. #Jets
  • Aaron Rodgers with a beautiful laser to Garrett Wilson at the sideline, who made a great catch and kept both his feet inbounds.
  • Interesting that @AaronRodgers12 cited 16 and 82 for their efforts this spring – rookies Jason Brownlee and Xavier Gipson. Jets have an intriguing WR group.

Seattle Seahawks 

  • Pete Carroll highlighted two #Seahawks undrafted free agents as the “guys that probably did the best, they really stood out”: UDFA S Jonathan Sutherland UDFA WR Jake Bobo “We’re fortunate to get 2, or 3, maybe 4 guys out of that group to compete to play, so it’s a big deal.”
  • Another Seahawks practice, more of what Jaxon Smith-Njigba does best: Catching ball away from his body with his hands, smoothest cuts. Just clean. “Oh, man,” Pete Carroll says, “he’s really, really natural….He’s got this great change of direction…Hands as natural as can be.”
