NFL Updates: News From Around the League, Off-Season Schedule and More
March 30, 2015
It’s Monday, and the NFL off-season continues to chug along. In just one month, it’ll be time for the 2015 draft, so in the meantime we’ve got plenty to talk about and speculate on. Let’s check out some of the notable news items out there this morning in our daily wrap-up.
The Jets will be meeting with LB Erin Henderson in the very near future, according to sources close to the situation.
Henderson was released from the Vikings and sat out last season. He met with representatives from the 49ers late last week.

The Saints’ Brian Dixon is in legal trouble this week. He was arrested in Miami on Sunday morning and charged with resisting an officer.
Dixon was reportedly pulled over for riding on a moped, which led to him being booked at 5:50 a.m. yesterday.
The Seahawks re-signed a defensive piece yesterday, inking DL Demarcus Dobbs to a one-year deal.
Dobbs joined up with the defending NFC champs in November, coming off a stint with the Niners.
What’s the Broncos offense going to look like in 2015? That’s a big question in Denver, but we’ve got a bit of new information this morning.
RB C.J. Anderson will be the team’s starting RB coming into off-season activities, according to coach Gary Kubiak. Anderson is coming off an 849-yard season on the ground that produced eight touchdowns. He came on in relief of the injured Montee Ball.
The Bears’ Jared Allen was hampered last year by a back issue, and it turned out to be a herniated disc.
Allen still missed just one game during the 2014 campaign, coming up with 55 tackles and 5 ½ sacks in his 15 appearances.
