Vernon’s salary currently is guaranteed for injury, and it becomes fully guaranteed on the third day of the 2018 league year, so there is a window in which he could be released.

Now he’ll try to prove to San Francisco it should have kept the No. 2 and picked him — maybe against Jimmy Garoppolo.
The Broncos were called out for not being tough enough, and then things further blew up in their faces in Oakland. The QB carousel has spun back to Trevor Siemian with Paxton Lynch promptly hurt. What a disaster all-around for Joseph and John Elway.

One could say the Giants’ 24-17 loss to the Raiders on Sunday was the last straw for Ben McAdoo. It dropped New York to 2-10 in 2017, its worst 12-game record since the team was 2-10 in 1976 and its worst mark since the advent of the 16-game schedule in 1978.
But the coach’s fate appeared determined before the game in Oakland, as reports indicated McAdoo could be fired as early as Monday.
Sure enough, the Giants not only fired McAdoo on Monday morning, but general manager Jerry Reese was let go, too. The Giants tabbed Steve Spagnuolo and Kevin Abrams as the interim head coach-GM combo.
