NFL Rumors: Redskins Targeting Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins

Keep up with the latest rumors ahead of the 2019 NFL draft.

The speculation will be over with the Arizona Cardinals making the first pick of the 2019 NFL draft in Nashville on Thursday.

Most think that the decision will come down to Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray or Ohio State defensive end Nick Bosa.

Meanwhile, the business of the NFL is still going on with players who are looking for extensions or were tagged with franchise tenders waiting for long-tern deals.

One player who scored big is Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who reached a four-year, $140 million extension that includes a $65 million signing bonus, making him the highest-paid player in the league.

Teams also have until May 3 to exercise fifth-year options on players selected in the 2016 draft's first round.
