Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane said the team is not planning on extending wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin’s contract until at least the summer.
We really haven’t focused on Kelvin Benjamin’s contract situation, Beane said Monday on WGR550. We’ll see how he fits in with Daboll’s offense and the quarterbacks over the summer, and then we’ll go from there.
The Ravens traded up to the 32nd overall pick to grab Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Lamar Jackson, a dual-threat who can run the same playbook as newly signed free agent Robert Griffin III. Rookie quarterbacks are rarely efficient, but Joe Flacco hasn’t exactly set the world on fire over the past few seasons, either.
At receiver, the Ravens signed Willie Snead, Michael Crabtree and John Brown, while they also drafted Jordan Lasley and Jaleel Scott. Baltimore also double-dipped on tight ends during the draft, spending a first-round pick on Hayden Hurst and a third-round pick on Mark Andrews.
If Jackson gets playing time as a rookie and is an above-average passer, the Ravens could be far more balanced on both sides of the ball moving forward.

A good comp for Davenport is Ziggy Ansah, who was also insanely athletic but raw (and mellow of disposition) coming out of college.
The Saints clearly think they are one player away from the Super Bowl. But is Davenport that player? New Orleans just gave up a first-round pick next year to get a project pass-rusher, albeit a good one. For a team counting on a 39-year-old quarterback to lead it to glory in a tight window, that’s a steep price for a player who may not pay immediate dividends.
