Bengals Taking Calls on Jonah Williams, Browns Interested in Jerry Jeudy, and Other NFL Bullets

If you didn’t tune into last night’s WBC Final between the US and Japan, I’m sorry to hear that. It finished with the ending everyone wanted, with Mike Trout squaring off against Shohei Ohtani. Congrats to Japan on the victory. But congrats to the baseball world as a whole. Oh, and RIP to the WBC is “boring exhibition baseball” crowd. Anyway, on to some football. The Bengals are listening on tackle Jonah Williams.

  • Ian Rapoport reports that Cincinnati has had trade conversations regarding Jonah Williams as interest “heats up” for the tackle.
  • After the Bengals gave Orlando Brown Jr. a four-year, $64 million contract to play Williams’ position, Williams requested a trade. So, the Bengals are reportedly working to accommodate Williams’ request.
  • Jonah Williams was the 11th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He missed his rookie season due to a shoulder injury, but he’s started 42 games (and played in 47) since. However, it’s essential to consider that the return the Bengals could net will be affected by the Bengals’ apparent desire to upgrade from Williams at the left tackle position.
  • Sticking with the trade front, the Browns are reportedly interested in trading for Jerry Jeudy. According to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com, the Browns have considered offering the Broncos a second and fourth-round pick to Denver for Jeudy. However, Mike Klis reports the Broncos have not been interested in the offers received for Jeudy and fellow wide receiver Courtland Sutton.
  • There was also chatter last week that the Patriots were interested in Jerry Jeudy. However, that was before New England signed JuJu Smith-Schuster. So, there may not be any further interest in Jeudy from the Patriots. More on JuJu in a moment, but first, the Patriots also reportedly had an interest in De’Andre Hopkins as well. The Browns are not interested in trading for De’Andre Hopkins.
  • Anderson also offered up one more note on the Browns wide receiver searches: Marquise Goodwin visited with the Browns on Monday.
  • Alright, back to JuJu. During a recent appearance on 98.5 The Sports Hub, Smith-Schuster said that “feeling wanted” by a head coach that he has “a lot of respect for” led to his decision to leave Kansas City for the Patriots.
  • “To be honest, it was Belichick, man,” Smith-Schuster said, via NBCSportsBoston.com. “Just the want and the need and the position that I can fill there really caught my attention, and I felt that like that was the thing: feeling wanted in a place where I played against a head coach who have a lot of respect for. And I just think that goes a long way.”

  • Draft season is officially here! Texas running back Bijan Robinson was in Philadelphia to meet with the Eagles on Tuesday.
  • The Eagles own the 10th (from New Orleans), and 30th picks in the draft’s first round. However, Howie Roseman has never drafted a running back in the first round. The Eagles also lost a handful of defensive starters through free agency, so there are a handful of needs to address. The Eagles could go defense or double down on their rushing attack and put Bijan Robinson in the backfield with Jalen Hurts.
  • The New England Patriots will keep CB Jalen Mills in town. Mills signed a one-year deal worth up to $6.1 million.
  • The Cowboys have found a backfield mate for Tony Pollard. Dallas signed Ronald Jones on Tuesday. Jones played six games for the Chiefs last season after spending four seasons with Tampa Bay. Jones ran for 978 yards and seven touchdowns on 192 carries in 2020. Jones is a low-cost replacement for Ezekiel Elliott in the Cowboys backfield. I like the move.
  • The Bills have re-signed offensive tackle David Quessenberry. The 32-year-old tackle will play in Buffalo on a one-year deal for the second straight season in 2023. He split time between left and right tackle last season.
  • So, before I get out of here … keep an eye on the BN Twitter account today for an announcement!
