NFL News & Rumors: Dwayne Haskins, Melvin Gordon Trade Talk, Josh Rosen Growth & Tom Brady Contract

With week 1 of the NFL Preseason just days away, training camp battles are heating up especially for quarterbacks like Dwayne Haskins and Josh Rosen. The Washington Redskins drafted Haskins #15 overall in the 2019 NFL draft and with Alex Smith out rehabbing his leg injury, many people expected Haskins to be the starter right away. That was, of course, until the Redskins released their first unofficial depth chart with the Ohio State QB at the third-string spot. Fifth year vet Colt McCoy is tagged as QB1 with Case Keenum in at the backup position. It appears that head coach Jay Gruden is prioritizing experience over the upside Haskins brings.

Josh Rosen is also looking to shake up the QB depth chart for the Miami Dolphins. Rosen was traded to Miami from the Arizona Cardinals during the offseason and according to all reports, he is closing the gap in the QB competition. All signs have pointed to Ryan Fitzpatrick starting over Rosen, however, Dolphins head coach Brian Flores said Rosen has improved “across the board.” Rosen is coming into the 2019 season with a chip on his shoulder, could this be the year that he lives up to the hype or will he find himself on the move yet again?

The Houston Texans cut RB D’Onta Foreman, starting a lot of buzz for a Melvin Gordon trade. Houston says they won’t try to trade for the Chargers RB. Reports suggest that the Texans are looking for a backup to Lamar Miller and Gordon is far too expensive. Unlike the Texans, the Philadelphia Eagles have plenty of depth at the RB position, with Miles Sanders stealing the show. The 2nd round draft pick out of Penn State has been turning heads at training camp and has drawn comparisons to LeSean McCoy. Jordan Howard was traded to the Eagles during the offseason but Sanders is on the path to the starting role. 

Andrew Luck is sitting out while Tom Brady is getting paid. Luck is still rehabbing his calf strain, but isn’t worried about missing any regular season games for the Colts. Tom Brady on the other hand is healthier than ever, landing the 42-year-old a two-year extension with the New England Patriots. Brady will go from making $15MM to $23MM this season. While Brady is showing no signs of slowing down, the Patriots have the option in 2020 to restructure or pull the plug on the deal. 

Here is the complete list of NFL news & rumors discussed on today’s episode of NFL Daily:
- Dwayne Haskins not starting for the Washington Redskins?
- Houston Texans not interested in trading for Melvin Gordon?
- Josh Rosen turning heads at Dolphins training camp?
- Miles Sanders turning heads at Eagles training camp?
- Is Andrew Luck going to be ready for week one?
