Mark Sanchez is ready to compete for the Jets’ starting QB job, but Mike Florio says barring multiple injuries or poor play up and down the depth chart, it’s unlikely Sanchez will even be a member of the team come Week 1. If New York cuts bait now, they’ll owe Sanchez $8.25 million within 30 days. So for now, they’ll keep the QB and see if they can generate any interest on the trade market.

Robert Griffin III has finally acknowledged he should have exited the Redskins’ playoff game that resulted in him tearing his ACL. Mike Florio says, besides Mike Shanahan, RGIII is the last person in America to come to this realization. Hindsight is 20/20, but Florio says it’s time for Shanahan to admit his mistake as well. “The lesson to be learned going forward: You have to be willing to put the health of your player before any desire to win a game.”

With the NFL draft set to begin, Mike Florio says some players should hope to go undrafted rather than be selected in the sixth or seventh rounds. Undrafted free agents can essentially pick the team they go to, while a late-round draft pick might be taken by a team that doesn’t fit their particular skillset. Look no further than Arian Foster, who is in an ideal situation after no team took in in the 2009 draft.More NFL draft coverage on Yahoo! Sports:

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday morning that quarterback Robert Griffin III needs to learn how to slide. It’s a request easier said than done, however. Football players operate on instincts, and it’s tough to break habits, just ask Michael Vick. Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has the instinct to avoid big hits, which is something Griffin will have to learn this offseason.

The Dallas Cowboys are reportedly closing in on a new contract with their quarterback, Tony Romo. Restructuring the deal would be beneficial for both sides. Romo has a $16.8 million cap hit next season, so the Cowboys must lower the number if they’re going to make any moves in the offseason. If Jerry Jones can open up some cap space, he could surround Romo with some notable free agents, which in turn could lead Dallas to its first Super Bowl in 17 years.
Ducks' GM Bob Murray locked up Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry to expensive long-term contracts. Both are scheduled to be Ducks for the next eight years and will be handsomely rewarded for their services. Those deals use up a great deal of cap space, however. Can Murray continue to build a championship quality team?
