Robert Kraft's attorney, William Burck, to ESPN: “There was no human trafficking and law enforcement knows it. The video and the traffic stop were illegal and law enforcement just doesn't want to admit it. The state attorney needs to step up and do the right thing and investigate how the evidence in this case was obtained.”

The Bills on Friday signed linebacker/safety Maurice Alexander to a one-year deal worth $1.375 million, a source said. Alexander visited the Bills after one season with the Seahawks in which he played exclusively on special teams. Alexander, who also played extensively on defense for the Rams from 2014-17, should factor into the Bills' special-teams mix.

Count TE Jared Cook himself among those suggesting a deal with the Saints is close. When asked if he has agreed to a deal with New Orleans, Cook winked and told ESPN's Jamison Hensley, "Maybe," while at an event honoring the NFL's Ed Block Courage Award winners. Cook then said "it's going to be pretty awesome" catching passes from Drew Brees. "I've been a big fan of Drew for a long time and the way he approaches the game," Cook said. "He's on point. He's on top of his game right now. He's just a baller. I look forward to seeing him do great things in the future." When asked if he is surprised to be leaving Oakland, Cook said, "Yeah, but it's a business. They're still my guys. You take for what it is." ... Sources have described a Cook/Saints deal as close but not officially finalized yet.

Safety Morgan Burnett's pending release will save the Steelers $3.63 million against the salary cap, or $5.05 million if they designate him a post-June-1 release. The team has explored a trade for Burnett, according to a source, but Burnett's agent, Kevin Conner, told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter that the team will release him April 1. The Steelers have Burnett's replacements intact - Mark Barron at inside/dime linebacker, Terrell Edmunds at strong safety.

Rams backup QB Blake Bortles said Thursday that he would have signed with the Rams in free agency before ever taking a visit. "My agent didn't think that would be the best thing to do," Bortles said, with a chuckle. Learning under Sean McVay, and joining a quarterbacks room that includes friends Jared Goff and Brandon Allen, appealed to Bortles, who said his goal was to eventually become a starter in the NFL once again. In the meantime, the one-year deal with the Rams provides Bortles an opportunity for growth. "Being around Sean, learning from him, being around a winning organization that's had a ton of success the last couple of years and kind of get back around winning football.... I'm looking forward to that a tremendous amount," Bortles said.

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan did not attend Josh Allen's Pro day at Kentucky, likely because Allen — a potential target with the No. 3 pick — opted to stand on his combine workout. Allen told me he has a pre-draft visit scheduled for next week with the Jets. The Jets had at least one scout at the pro day, but no front-office personnel and no coaches. I asked a handful of NFL types at the pro day about the Jets, and the consensus belief if they will pick Allen if they are indeed playing a 3-4 defense.

The Rams have matched the Lions' offer sheet for RB Malcolm Brown. Brown has proven himself as a reliable backup to Todd Gurley over the last few seasons and is a standout on special teams. Before he suffered a clavicle injury in Week 13 last season that sent him to the IR, Brown rushed for 212 yards in 43 carries and caught 5 passes for 52 yards and a touchdown.
