The well-traveled quarterback Matt Barkley will make his next stop in Cincinnati.
Barkley is expected to sign a two-year deal with the Bengals to serve as Andy Dalton’s backup, Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com reports.
The Bengals were in the market for a backup quarterback after AJ McCarron signed with the Bills.
The package, which still must be passed by the full Massachusetts House and Senate and signed by the governor, had been slow to develop after being bogged down for months in the legislative process. But when NFL players and Patriots owner Robert Kraft and his son Jonathan began lobbying for it, it raised both the profile of the issue and the urgency to get something done.
Friday, McCourty was joined by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins, Saints linebacker Demario Davis and retired receiver Anquan Boldin for a daylong symposium at Harvard on criminal justice reform.
The last time a team moved up to the third overall pick was in the 2013 NFL draft, and that team gave up a whole lot less. That year, the Dolphins got pick No. 3 from the Raiders, giving up only pick No. 12 and pick Darrell Green Authentic Jersey No. 42. Miami drafted defensive end Dion Jordan, who managed a grand total of three sacks as a Dolphin, which shows the danger of trading up in the draft: You don’t actually know if the guy you’re trading up for is going to be any good.
The reason the Jets gave up so much more than the Dolphins is that this year there will be a highly regarded quarterback available with the third pick in the draft, and that year there was not. Teams will pay a huge premium for a passer. The Colts were lucky that was the case.

Marlin Briscoe broke the racial barrier in 1968 when he lined up under center for the Denver Broncos during his rookie season, throwing for 1,589 yards and a team-best 14 touchdowns.
Briscoe was traded the following season to the Buffalo Bills, who converted him to wide receiver.
