A lot can happen over the course of a week. Since the last episode of the Yahoo Sports NFL Podcast, ESPN's Jeff Darlington reported that sources expect Tom Brady to hit free agency with the assumption he'll be playing outside of New England and just yesterday, multiple reports cited a phone call between Brady and Bill Belichick that "did not go well."

Terez Paylor & Charles Robinson interpret the growing reports that TB12 will hit free agency, the increasingly strong rumors the San Francisco 49ers would make a play for him and throw a bit of cold water on the idea that multiple teams are going after the legend. (2:25)

They devote much of the rest of the show to recapping the final days of the combine. Could as many as four QBs be drafted in the top 10? Is Oklahoma's Jalen Hurts a good fit backing up Drew Brees in New Orleans? What's the deal with that Washington lineman who joked in an interview about his...anatomy? Does a free agency rumor about an offensive lineman hint that the Redskins might indeed be interested in drafting Tua Tagovailoa? (13:20) 

Later, our experts touch on a number of smaller news stories from around the NFL. 

What's the latest with the proposed new CBA? (37:35) 

With the Jaguars trading CB A.J. Bouye to the Broncos, the Chris Harris, Jr. era in Denver is apparently over. (44:50)

Terez talks about where the Kansas City Chiefs are at with WR Sammy Watkins and previews his interview from earlier in the day with Patrick Mahomes. (46:45)

Finally, they discuss the Cincinnati Bengals, owners of the first overall pick. Historical organizational ineptitude aside, Terez makes the case their offense could show flashes of the 2018 LA Rams very soon if they make the right moves to complement presumably drafting Joe Burrow. (49:00)
