Report: Browns to consider extension for LB Sione Takitaki

  Report: Browns to consider extension for LB Sione Takitaki Browns linebacker Sione Takitaki is entering the final year of his rookie contract and it sounds like the team will consider an extension.Cleveland’s most frequent alignment is a 4-2-5 look, with Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah and Anthony Walker entrenched as the primary linebackers in the middle of the unit. But when the team deploys a strong-side ‘backer, it calls upon Takitaki, a hard-hitting run-stopper whose 67.5 grade from Pro Football Focus in 2021 would have been a top-20 mark if he had enough snaps to qualify.

The Panthers continue to sort out their quarterback competition as the regular season draws nearer, with Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield duking it out for first-team reps. Adding intrigue to the competition was a rumor that the team was shopping Darnold in trade discussions, something Darnold said he addressed with general manager Scott Fitterer.

“I talked to Scott and he said not to worry about it,” Darnold told reporters Monday. “So, to be honest, before he even talked to me, I didn’t even see it. So, like I said, like I continue to say, I’m going to continue to do me and do what I can to put myself in a good position and put this team in a good position.”

Colts' DeForest Buckner has blunt assessment of how last season ended

  Colts' DeForest Buckner has blunt assessment of how last season ended The Colts had two opportunities to clinch a playoff berth in early January but fell to the Raiders and Jaguars over the season's final two weeks and Buckner didn't hold back in his assessment of the failure.Veteran Matt Ryan is the club's new QB1 and will eventually look to remove Wentz's worst performances from the memories of those associated with the Colts. On Tuesday, though, Indianapolis defensive tackle DeForest Buckner found himself discussing what happened in the early days of the calendar year.

Darnold started 11 games for Carolina during his first season with the team after being traded from the Jets. He completed 59.9% of his pass attempts for 2,527 yards, nine touchdowns and 13 interceptions. He also rushed for 222 yards and five scores.

Last month, the Panthers acquired Mayfield in a trade with the Browns in exchange for a 2024 fifth-round pick. Both players will be free agents at the end of this season. Mayfield was the No. 1 pick in the 2018 draft, while Darnold was picked No. 3.
