There was a report in late March that the Texans and linebacker Jadeveon Clowney were making progress on talks about a contract extension, but they haven’t reached the finish line yet.
General Manager Brian Gaine was asked about the status of those discussions during a Friday press conference.
I won’t discuss our negotiations publicly, but I’m optimistic that something can be done. 鈥he guy’s a disruptive player. He plays the run well. So we’re doing our best to fortify our nucleus of players, and we’d like him to be a part of it. Gaine said, via ESPN.com.

From a competitive standpoint, there’s lots of things we look at from a quarterback from the physical standpoint, from an intangibles standpoint.

Maccagnan’s press conference was not as entertaining as was that of his counterpart with the Giants, Dave Gettleman. He did agree with Gettleman on one thing: He hopes the player he picks at No. 3 winds up in the Hall of Fame some day.
We’ll have an empty chair for him, and we’ll be thinking about him for sure, Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said, via Joel Erickson of the New Orleans Advocate. We miss him.

New Saints owner Gayle Benson is expected in the war room for at least part of the draft. Her NBA team, the Pelicans, begins the next round of the playoffs Saturday in Oakland.
She’s been there with Tom; I’m sure she’ll be there again, Saints head coach Sean Payton said. The conflict would only be the Pelicans’ success, but she’s been at every draft that I’ve been here since ’06. She’ll have her spot, two down from me to the right, and we’ll make sure it’s ready for her.
All along, the Jets have seemed Brett Connolly Jersey his likeliest landing spot, though that was presuming USC’s Sam Darnold would go to Cleveland at No. 1. The Browns passing on Darnold would shake up just about every mock draft.
