Jets could be a landing spot for Robert Griffin III

Beggars can’t be choosers, so Robert Griffin III would surely be interested in any team that’s interested in him.

What’s next for Tony Romo?

The Cowboys tried to finagle a trade for quarterback Tony Romo, via a string of coy and at times inconsistent comments and leaks from the team (recently, they got at least one media member to go with the idea that they’re in no hurry to resolve the situation).

Mike Glennon officially has no agent (unofficially does)

With free agency approaching, players like Darrelle Revis and Colin Kaepernick were wise to officially hire agents. Mike Glennon, however, does not yet officially have one.

John Lynch: Lack of quarterbacks on roster “somewhat liberating”

New 49ers General Manager John Lynch said Thursday he planned to explore every avenue for finding a quarterback — which is probably smart since he doesn’t have any on his roster at the moment.

If you watched or listened to Wednesday’s PFT Live, you saw or heard (or both) a discussion about the teams that could be or should be interested in Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.
