Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, mentioned as a possible first-round consideration for the New York Jets, is facing an OVI charge -- operating a vehicle under the influence, according to WBNS-10TV in Columbus, Ohio. This almost certainly kills any chance of the Jets taking him with the 18th pick. The incident occurred April 20 in Columbus, where police were called to the scene of a person passed out behind the wheel of a car. He eventually failed a field sobriety test, according to the report.
New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan expects to see a much improved Atlanta Falcons team when the two longtime NFC South rivals meet in Week 1 this season at Atlanta.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Here's a surprise: The Arizona Cardinals play in the toughest division in football. Here's another surprise: Three of my top five games to watch this season are against NFC West teams. The Cardinals play the eighth-hardest schedule, according to ESPN Stats & Information, which includes a swing through the NFC East but their most important games will be against the West. Those matchups, at least four of them, will be barometers for Arizona, to see how far the Cardinals have come since 2013.
Bernie Kosar hit all the high notes with the community in a statement he released saying he wanted back on the Cleveland Browns' preseason broadcast team.
