The Seattle Seahawks have begun contract extension talks with CB Richard Sherman. The talks are going well.

Footballguys view: Sherman's deal should be the richest for a cornerback in NFL history, and more per season than the 12 million that Darrelle Revis got for this season from the Patriots.

An arrest warrant against Florida CB Loucheiz Purifoy for drug charges has been canceled when his attorney agreed to have Purifoy cooperate as an informant for the Gainesville Alachua County Drug Task Force.

Footballguys view: While this helps Purifoy from a character concern standpoint, it is still far from ideal. His draft stock has been sliding.

  Bills | Kyle Fuller visiting    Mon Apr 21, 03:17 PM

The Buffalo Bills are meeting with Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Fuller is an impressive, aggressive corner prospect, who can also play some hybrid safety-linebacker role when asked. #9 might seem on the high end of his draft range, but he is likely one of the top 2 or 3 corners on many team's boards.

  Cardinals | Pick up Patrick Peterson's option    Mon Apr 21, 03:09 PM

The Arizona Cardinals have exercised the fifth-year option in CB Patrick Peterson's contract.

Footballguys view: A no brainer decision, Peterson is developing into one of the premier corners in the NFL, and he'll be a bargain compared to what he would get on the open market.

  Lions | Will meet with Justin Gilbert    Mon Apr 21, 02:15 PM

The Detroit Lions are scheduled to meet with Oklahoma State CB Justin Gilbert later this week.

Footballguys view: Some mocks put Gilbert in that #10 spot, but TE Eric Ebron is being mentioned more as a possibility every day, and the Lions still like 2013 second-round pick Dwayne Slay. Gilbert has the best tools in the cornerback class, but he isn't always the most aggressive playing the receiver or the ball in the air.

  Jets | Jason Verrett to visit    Sun Apr 20, 08:14 PM

The New York Jets are scheduled to meet with Texas Christian CB Jason Verrett Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a small but feisty corner with the speed to play on the outside at corner. He's also got the ability to play inside against slot receivers. Verrett has drawn comparisons to Alterraun Verner (Buccaneers).

Updating a previous item, the Arizona Cardinals plan to exercise the option on CB Patrick Peterson no later than Monday, April 21.

Footballguys view: Zero surprise here. Peterson is one of the best young cornerbacks in the game today. The Cardinals should work diligently to wrap him up with a long-term deal in the near future.

  Rams | Kyle Fuller coming in     Fri Apr 18, 03:38 AM

Virginia Tech CB Kyle Fuller is coming to the St. Louis Rams for a visit sometime during the week of April 21.

Footballguys view: Fuller is a big cornerback who can re-route receivers at the line of scrimmage. He's a sound tackler who can cover downfield. Fuller is seen as a late first-round pick.

  Jets | Three to visit    Thu Apr 17, 09:33 AM

Louisiana State WR Odell Beckham, Oregon State WR Brandin Cooks and Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard will visit the New York Jets next week.

Footballguys view: The Jets left free agency without a second big receiver, a replacement for Antonio Cromartie or an upgrade at safety, so wide receiver and secondary make a ton of sense.

  Bengals | Darqueze Dennard visits    Tue Apr 15, 01:54 PM

Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard visited with the Cincinnati Bengals Monday, April 14, and Tuesday, April 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Bengals are looking for a young corner to groom as an eventual starter. Dennard can consistently re-route wide receivers when playing press. He's a physical player who will fight for contested passes. Dennard should be a first-round pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

  Broncos | Kayvon Webster moving up depth chart    Mon Apr 14, 11:44 PM

Denver Broncos CB Kayvon Webster is currently slotted as the team's third cornerback, and he could even see a bigger role if CB Chris X. Harris (knee) isn't quite ready.

Footballguys view: Webster is not ready for that larger role. When forced into more playing time last year he struggled late in the season as a rookie. The Broncos top pick in the draft should be a cornerback.

  Broncos | Chris Harris entering contract year    Mon Apr 14, 11:44 PM

With Denver Broncos CB Chris X. Harris (knee) making his way back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in January, and the fact he is eligible for unrestricted free agency after this season, the team is likely to select a cornerback in the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL Draft.

  Bengals | Jason Verrett to visit    Mon Apr 14, 04:16 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals are scheduled to meet with Texas Christian CB Jason Verrett.

Footballguys view: Verrett is a smaller corner, measuring in around 5'10" 185 pounds. He makes up for his lack of size with a feisty attitude and ability to fight for contested passes. Verrett has the speed to fit in the back pocket of receivers as they move downfield. He's an option for the Bengals in the first round. The Bengals need a young corner to develop, and Verrett has starter's upside.

  NFL | Darqueze Dennard will not attend draft    Sat Apr 12, 10:47 PM

Michigan State CB Darqueze Dennard said he has declined an invitation to attend the 2014 NFL Draft.

Footballguys view: Dennard's draft stock has fallen a bit, but he could still be a late first-round pick. Other cornerbacks like Bradley Roby (Ohio State) are possibly jumping ahead of Dennard in the draft because they are faster. He can effectively re-route receivers at the line of scrimmage, and Dennard is an instinctive player who is always around the ball.
