It appears this saga might finally come to an end.
Here are other transactions we’re monitoring from Thursday:
1. The Washington Redskins confirmed the exact terms of their trade with the Denver Broncos centered on safety Su’a Cravens. The Redskins acquired a fourth-round pick (No. 109), two fifth-round picks (142, 163) and a conditional pick in 2020; the Broncos, in addition to Cravens, received a pick in the fourth round (113) and fifth round (149).
2. The Detroit Lions signed tight end Levine Toilolo. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Toilolo’s deal is for one year, $2 million.
3. The Minnesota Vikings re-signed return specialist and cornerback Marcus Sherels and signed former Chiefs and Titans linebacker Reshard Cliett.
4. The Buffalo Bills signed former Chiefs cornerback Phillip Gaines.
Jones said Gregory has done a good job working through his issues. And it’s his hope that Gregory will be reinstated and play for the Cowboys in 2018. The 2015 second-round selection has played in just two games since his rookie season.
The fieldhouse had the feel of a Baptist church, so crowded that men wiped sweat from their brows and women fanned themselves with folded pieces of paper. Scouts clutched their notepads and their iPads. Reporters held up cameras behind a metal barrier. There was even a broadcast duo, live-streaming a glorified workout. UCF’s Pro Day, normally just another overlooked line on the packed draft calendar, had turned into an event.
This is the Shaquem Griffin effect. Make no mistake, the Knights have more to brag about than one player. There is talent in this program – most notably defensive back Mike Hughes, who is a projected first-rounder. But this was something much more than a display of athletic potential. A day before at the University of Florida, with its Tim Tebow statue and its bushels of NFL alums, the Gators Pro Day was serene by comparison. It felt rote, normal. This did not. There were 31 teams present at UCF, and 70 scouts. Griffin speaks to people, because of his sweet smile and because of his stirring story.
