1.Dynasty | Charles Clay released by Buffalo (Dynasty League Football) Tight end Charles Clay was released by the Buffalo Bills and is now an unrestricted free agent. Analysis: Clay would have been under contract for $9 million next season and that just wasn't going to happen after he posted a very disappointing 21/184/0 line last season with the Bills. The eight year veteran has just over 3,600 receiving yards and 23 touchdowns during his career, but was far from the impact player the Bills hoped they had when they signed him back in 2015. Clay will likely find a new home with a needy team like Detroit, but he's far... (More)7 minutes
2.Dynasty | Ryan Tannehill a fit in Washington? (Dynasty League Football) Ryan Tannehill continues to be connected to Washington this off-season. Analysis: The Dolphins seem poised to move on from Tannehill this off-season and this speculation continues to fan the flames in regards to Alex Smith missing all of next season. Tannehill would be a serviceable player for a team next year, but his health remains a concern and he's also been a habitual underachiever throughout his career. A change of scenery is needed, though it would be very surprising to see him post numbers better than that of a QB2 or bye week fill-in. As for S... (More)7 minutes
3.Dynasty | Mark Walton arrested in Miami (Dynasty League Football) Mark Walton was arrested on a charge of battery. Analysis: The arrest happened in a parking garage after a couple was filming his reaction to them asking him to move his car. While there aren't a ton of details out there, this doesn't bode well for Walton, whose dynasty value was hanging by a thread anyway. Thought to be someone who could challenge Joe Mixon and other Cincinnati runners at this time last year, Walton was only able to muster 34 rushing yards on a paltry 2.4 yards per carry last season. Walton remains a hold in deeper leagues until ... (More)7 minutes
4.T-Rich has 91 yards, TD for Birmingham I... (Rotoworld) Trent Richardson rushed 19 times for 41 yards and one touchdown in the Birmingham Iron's 12-9, Week 2 win over the Salt Lake Stallions on Saturday, adding six catches for 50 yards on seven targets. Analysis: Richardson has been the offense for the 2-0 Iron through two weeks, rushing for 58 yards and a pair of scores in the Week 1 shutout of the Express before playing through a hamstring injury and scoring the game-winning touchdown with 4:48 left in this one. Richardson's rushing numbers aren't jumping off the page with a 42-99-3 line for a pitiful 2.36 YPC, but he's been a workhorse and has a nose for the end zone. Richardson isn't showing a...

5.Zac Stacy runs for 19-101-1 for AAF's Ex... (Rotoworld) Zac Stacy rushed 19 times for 101 yards and one touchdown in the Memphis Express' 20-18, Week 2 loss to the Arizona Hotshots on Saturday night. Analysis: Stacy, 28 in April, "retired" from the NFL two years ago after complications with a broken ankle. The Vanderbilt product is playing for the hometown Express and became the league's first 100-yard rusher on Saturday, showing trucking ability and hard-nosed after-contact running effort. Stacy scored from nine yards out and also broke off a 50-yard scamper later in the game. Stacy said he was making a comeback last March but never got any NFL nibbles.3 hours
6.Rashad Ross has 9-170-3 after two AAF ga... (Rotoworld) Rashad Ross caught all four of his targets for 67 yards and one touchdown in the Arizona Hotshots' 20-18, Week 2 win over the Memphis Express on Saturday night. Analysis: Ross has been the best offensive player in the league through 1.5 weeks -- four teams are still left to play in Week 2 on Sunday. The 29-year-old enjoyed a cup of coffee with the Redskins in 2015-2016 and looks to be earning himself another shot at an NFL job if he keeps this up for the 2-0 Hotshots. Ross scored an 11-yard touchdown on Saturday, getting open over the middle, making a defender miss in space, and then out-running the rest of the defense to the right side of th... (More)3 hours
7.Redskins were interested in Joe Flacco (Rotoworld) According to Darren McKee of 104.3 The Fan, the Redskins were also interested in acquiring Joe Flacco before his trade to Denver. Analysis: It makes sense as the Redskins are in desperate need of a quarterback with Alex Smith likely to miss all of 2019 with a broken leg that required multiple surgeries. Washington is sure to address quarterback in the upcoming draft, though the Redskins' flirtation with Flacco suggests the team would also consider a stopgap option like Case Keenum. With Smith out of commission, Washington's current quarterback room consists of journeyman Josh Johnson, career backup C... (More)7 hours
8.Gronk still a 'regular' at Gillette Stad... (Rotoworld) According to ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss, Rob Gronkowski has been a "regular" at Gillette Stadium this offseason. Analysis: Gronkowski has remained noncommittal about playing another season, though his presence at the team facility is obviously an encouraging sign. Per Reiss, the 29-year-old has been undergoing treatment on his injured thigh. The once-great tight end has obviously lost a step, though he remained an important part of New England's offense in 2018, dominating as a blocker while also coming through with a number of clutch catches during the postseason. Expect Gronk to ma... (More)8 hours
9.Demaryius Thomas hospitalized after car ... (Rotoworld) Free agent WR Demaryius Thomas was treated for minor injuries after rolling over his vehicle in Denver early Saturday morning. Analysis: Thomas and two others were hospitalized following the accident, which occurred around 12:20 AM local time. A female passenger was treated for "possible" serious injuries, though none were considered life-threatening. The crash is still being investigated, though police don't believe drugs or alcohol were involved. It's been a rough week for Thomas, who was let go by the Texans five days ago. Coming off a torn Achilles, it may be a while before the 31-year-... (More)8 hours
10.Ronald Darby unlikely to be back with Ea... (Rotoworld) The Philadelphia Inquirer doesn't expect the Eagles to re-sign free agent CB Ronald Darby. Analysis: Darby is recovering from November ACL surgery. He has a chance to be ready for training camp but it sounds like he won't be back with the Eagles. 25-year-old Darby graded as a top-40 corner at PFF in the nine games he was healthy. He should land a one-year, prove it deal.22 hours
11.Chris Godwin could play more slot in 2019 (FantasyPros) Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report writes Chris Godwin could play more slot receiver in 2019. Analysis: Tampa Bay might be looking to replace Adam Humphries snaps from the slot and Godwin could be a candidate to replace him. It's noteworthy because slot receivers have done well in the past with Bruce Arians. Godwin totaled 842 yards and seven touchdowns in . 2018.23 hours
12.Mark Walton: Arrested Friday (RotoWire) Walton is potentially facing misdemeanor battery charges after being arrested Friday in Miami, David Orvalle of The Miami Herald reports. Analysis: Walton apparently got into a scuffle outside his condo with the police indicating the incident began due to the fact his vehicle was blocking the building's parking garage. The 21-year-old is currently free on bond, while the league office is likely to do their own investigation to see if the incident warrants any further action.23 hours
13.Joe Flacco won't have contract restructured (FantasyPros) The Broncos are not expected to try and restructure Joe Flacco's contract. Analysis: Flacco is owed $63 million over the next three years, though none of it is guaranteed. It's a lot to pay a quarterback who hasn't been wildly productive for some time now, but the Broncos have planted their flag with Flacco. He'll enter 2019 as nothing more than a low-end QB2 in fantasy.23 hours
14.Demaryius Thomas: Suffers minor injuries in crash (RotoWire) Thomas (Achilles) sustained minor injuries in a single-vehicle crash early Saturday morning, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Thomas was identified as the driver in the vehicle rollover, while one of the other two individuals in the car suffered possible serious injuries, though they don't appear life-threatening. The veteran wide receiver is currently a free agent after being released by the Texans on Thursday, and his status for the start of the 2019 season is in limbo after he ruptured his Achilles in December.23 hours
15.Dolphins add Reggie McKenzie to front of... (Rotoworld) Dolphins hired Ex-Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie as a senior personnel executive. Analysis: McKenzie spent seven seasons as Oakland's general manager. He was fired before the end of last year after losing a power struggle with Jon Gruden. A former Executive of the Year, McKenzie is a strong addition to GM Chris Grier's staff. He'll be in the inner circle of Miami's rebuild.1 day
16.Vikings a landing spot for James Carpent... (Rotoworld) The Star Tribune considers free agent LG James Carpenter a possible target for the Vikings. Analysis: Carpenter missed the final six games of 2018 with a shoulder injury. He had a down year as a run blocker but was one of the better pass-protecting guards in the league. Carpenter played under Vikings OL coach Rick Dennison with the Jets last season. With Tom Compton and Nick Easton free agents, Carpenter would be a strong fit in Minnesota.1 day
17.Broncos won't ask Joe Flacco to restruct... (Rotoworld) The Broncos aren't expected to restructure Joe Flacco's contract. Analysis: Flacco is the 10th highest paid quarterback in the league with a $18.5 million salary. Denver doesn't plan to ask him to take a pay cut despite losing his starting job to Lamar Jackson and missing time with a hip injury last year. Flacco is owed $63 million the next three seasons, though none of that is guaranteed.1 day
18.AB: Roethlisberger has 'owner mentality' (Rotoworld) Responding to a social media question about his frayed relationship with Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown said Roethlisberger has an "owner mentality like he can call out anybody, including coaches." Analysis: "Players know, but they can’t say anything about it otherwise they meal ticket gone," Brown said. "It’s a dirty game within a game." This came after Brown said he did not have a "conflict" with Roethlisberger but was simply seeking "mutual respect." Roethlisberger certainly has not hesitated to publicly call out Brown in the past. It was cons... (More)1 day
19.Damontae Kazee: May slide into nickel slot (RotoWire) Kazee is the most likely candidate to replace Brian Poole at nickelback in 2019 now that the Falcons declined to pick up Poole's restricted free-agent tender Friday, Kelsey Conway of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Head coach Dan Quinn said earlier this offseason that Kazee is not only a candidate to garner playing time at free safety, but he's also a potential option at nickelback. Entering his third pro campaign out of San Diego State, Kazee will strive to improve as a tackler, but his ball-hawking abilities are undeniable. After he accounted for an NFL-high seven interceptions this past season, Atlanta wants to find a way to get hi... (More)1 day
20.Bengals RB Walton arrested on battery ch... (Rotoworld) Bengals RB Mark Walton was arrested and charged with battery late Friday in Miami. Analysis: Beyond that, details are scarce. The No. 112 overall pick of last year's draft, Walton had the looks of an unnecessary luxury pick in year one, touching the ball just 19 times behind Joe Mixon and Giovani Bernard. No. 3 is where he will begin 2019.1 day
21.Glover Quin dumped by Lions (FantasyPros) The Lions released veteran safety Glover Quin Friday. They also cut wide receiver Bruce Ellington and linebacker Nicholas Grigsby. Analysis: Releasing Quin saves the team $6.25 million in cap space for 2019. The move is not a surprise considering the cap savings and the reality that 2018 rookie Tracy Walker began to cut into his playing time over the course of the season. Quin entered the league as a fourth round pick of the Texans in 2009. He played four seasons in Houston before joining the Lions in 2013. He made the Pro Bowl in 2014 while leading the league with seven interceptions.1 day
22.Brandon Marshall: Broncos not planning on picking up 2019 option (FantasyPros) The Broncos have informed linebacker Brandon Marshall that they do not intend to exercise his contract option for 2019. He will become an unrestricted free agent March 13th. Analysis: Marshall would have made $7 million in 2019 had he returned to Denver. He expressed his disappointment and love for the organization to Mike Klis of 9News - Denver. "I love the organization, they gave me my first chance to play," Marshall said. "I love all my teammates. I really love [the] city. I felt embraced on and off the field. I'm just sorry I was injured two of the last three years…It's a really great organization so we'll see what happens." Marshall,... (More)1 day
23.Charles Clay released by Bills (FantasyPros) The Bills released Charles Clay on Friday. Analysis: Clay was a healthy scratch down the stretch for the Bills, and he finished with a career-low 184 receiving yards and just 21 catches. Clay was in the final year of a five-year, $38 million contract, and would have counted $9 million against the Bills' salary cap. Once a fairly reliable low-end TE1, Clay's fantasy prospects are dim, and can only be revived if he signs with a team that has an extremely tight-end-friendly offense.1 day
24.Bills release TE Charles Clay (FFToday) With the Friday release of Charles Clay, the Bills will have more flexibility to decide how to handle the position going forward. If Cook is out of the Bills’ price range, there are expected to be plenty of cheaper options. Baltimore’s Maxx Williams is a former second-round draft pick who never reached his potential with the Ravens, but is still young (24) and might need a fresh start. Then there’s the Cincinnati trio of Tyler Eifert, Tyler Kroft and C.J. Uzomah - all of whom are scheduled for unrestricted free agency in March. Analysis: Clay is coming of his worst fantas... (More)1 day
25.Kugler: Cardinals will run more than exp... (Rotoworld) Cardinals OL coach Sean Kugler expects the run game to be a "big part" of the offense. Analysis: "I think people are going to be surprised by the amount we run the ball; it’s a big part of this offense in addition to the screen game," Kugler said. "It’s not just throwing it every down, there’s going to be a lot of physicality." This is good news for David Johnson, but it may not be more than coachspeak given Kliff Kingsbury's pass-heavy tendencies. Even with Steve Wilks gone, Johnson is going to be hard to trust as a 2019 rebound.1 day
26.Johnathan Cyprien on track with rehab (Rotoworld) Titans SS Johnathan Cyprien (knee) said he's on schedule with his recovery. Analysis: Cyprien had ACL surgery back in August. He's nearing 100 percent but will likely sit out OTAs. Cyprien should be ready for the start of training camp.1 day
27.Mike Gillislee works out for Detroit (Rotoworld) Free agent Mike Gillislee worked out for the Lions. Analysis: Gillislee has been out of the league since the Saints released him in October after four games. He should land a 90-man roster spot somewhere this offseason, but Gillislee is just an end-of-roster flyer.2 days
28.Chargers bring back Watkins on 1-year de... (Rotoworld) Chargers re-signed CB Jaylen Watkins to a one-year contract. Analysis: Watkins spent last year on injured reserve after tearing his ACL in a preseason game. Even if he's healthy, the 27-year-old may struggle for playing time in a loaded Chargers secondary.2 days
29.Charles Clay: Cut by Buffalo (RotoWire) Clay was released by the Bills on Friday, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW.com reports. Analysis: Signed to a five-year, $38 million contract during the 2015 offseason, Clay never quite lived up to his paycheck but did start 53 games the past four seasons despite dealing with a number of injuries. Friday's transaction clears up $4.5 million on the 2019 cap sheet while leaving the Bills with Jason Croom and Logan Thomas (a restricted free agent) at tight end. Clay celebrated his 30th birthday earlier in the week and may have to settle for a part-time role on the open market.2 days
30.Bills end 4-year Charles Clay experiment (Rotoworld) Bills released TE Charles Clay. Analysis: Clay was due a $9 million cap hit in 2019, so cutting him was a no-brainer. With his release, the Bills will save $4.5 million against the cap while eating $4.5 million in dead money. Signed to an ambitious five-year, $38 million contract in 2015, Clay was a chronic underachiever during his four-year run in Western New York. The 30-year-old was essentially invisible in 2018, managing a meager 21-184-0 receiving line over 13 lackluster appearances. He was a healthy scratch for the Bills' final two games. We doubt Clay's phone will be ringing off the hook with... (More)2 days
31.Peterson will shadow top receivers in 20... (Rotoworld) Cardinals DC Vance Joseph said Patrick Peterson will return to shadowing top receivers in 2019. Analysis: Peterson was misused under former coach Steve Wilks, who wasted him in a zone coverage scheme but Joseph has vowed not to make the same mistake. "I’m going to allow Pat to match with the best guy each week to keep his dauber up," Joseph confirmed in a video posted to the team's website. The long-time Cardinal requested a trade last season but has since apologized for making those demands. The 28-year-old has achieved Pro Bowl status in each of his eight seasons since arriving as a fir... (More)2 days
32.Raiders still eying return to Oakland in... (Rotoworld) According to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and the Raiders are negotiating a deal that would keep the team in Oakland for 2019. Analysis: Scott McKibben, the executive director of the Coliseum Authority believes a deal could be reached within the next week. "I am cautiously optimistic that I believe that we will get a deal done, yes," he reiterated on Friday. McKibben expects to continue negotiations with team president Marc Badain in hopes of securing a deal that would keep the Raiders in Oakland for at least 2019 with an option to remain in 2020 should construction of the team's...

33.Bucs looking at Godwin to play the slot? (Rotoworld) Scott Reynolds of Pewter Report suggested Chris Godwin could be a candidate to replace impending free agent Adam Humphries as the team's primary slot receiver in 2019. Analysis: Per Reynolds, Humphries and his camp are seeking at least $8 million annually while the Bucs won't go higher than $6 million. With Humphries likely to jump ship in free agency, Godwin could be asked to fill the team's void at slot receiver. Godwin only played in the slot on 34.9 percent of his snaps last year but his size and speed combo along with his superior blocking could make him successful at that position. Slot receiv... (More)2 days
34.Dolphins take flyer on DE Tank Carradine (Rotoworld) Dolphins signed DE Tank Carradine. Analysis: The Dolphins are also signing CB Jomal Wiltz. Carradine spent part of last season with Oakland but only appeared in one game before requesting his release. A second-round pick of the 49ers in 2013, the 28-year-old (he turns 29 Monday) has been credited with 77 tackles and 5.5 sacks across 45 NFL appearances.2 days
35.Sidney Jones: Ready for normal offseason (RotoWire) Jones (hamstring) said he would've been cleared for the NFC Championship Game if the Eagles had advanced past the divisional round, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Analysis: Jones was limited to nine appearances (four starts) during the 2018 season, injuring his right hamstring on three separate occasions. He seems to have regained his health in time for a normal offseason routine, with the hope of adding some muscle to his 6-foot, 180-pound frame. The 2017 second-round pick will need to battle for a meaningful role in the Philadelphia defense, as fellow cornerbacks Jalen Mills (foot), Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Cre'Von Le... (More)2 days
36.Tracy Walker: Poised for starting job (RotoWire) Walker is the favorite to replace Glover Quin in the starting lineup for 2019, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: A third-round pick in the 2018 draft, Walker came on strong at the end of his rookie season, averaging 32.5 snaps and 2.8 tackles over the final four games while also holding his own in coverage. His solid play may have contributed to the Lions' decision to release the 33-year-old Quin, a 16-game starter each of the past six seasons. The team likely intends to use Walker and Quandre Diggs as the starting safeties in 2019, with the latter coming off a 2018 campaign in which he piled up 78 tackles (64 solo), three... (More)2 days
37.Colin Kaepernick: Reaches settlement with NFL (RotoWire) Kaepernick and Panthers safety Eric Reid have resolved their pending grievances with the NFL, subject to a confidentiality agreement. Analysis: Kaepernick and Reid presumably will receive financial settlements for undisclosed amounts, thus ending their lengthy legal battle in a collusion case against the league. The latter recently inked a three-year deal with the Panthers, while the former hasn't been signed since he opted out of his contract with the 49ers in March 2017. This could pave the way for the 31-year-old quarterback to resume his football career, though he'll still have a hard time finding a contract that accurately reflects his on-fi... (More)2 days
38.NFL settles with Colin Kaepernick, Eric ... (Rotoworld) The NFL announced Friday that Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid's collusion grievances against the league have both been resolved. Analysis: This spells the end of a bitter and lengthy conflict between the NFL and Kaepernick. The two sides are bound to a confidentiality agreement, so we don't know any details of the settlement, though it's likely that Kaepernick and Reid both received significant financial compensation. "We continuously supported Colin and Eric from the start of their protests, participated with their lawyers throughout their legal proceedings and were prepared to participate in t... (More)2 days
39.Antonio Brown: Agrees to meet with Rooney (RotoWire) Brown had a change of heart and now plans to meet with Steelers owner Art Rooney II, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: This doesn't mean Brown has withdrawn his trade request, but it does give the Steelers one last opportunity to see if there is any way to mend the relationship. For all the frustration with his antics, the team can't be too happy about the prospect of taking a $21.12 million dead cap charge in 2019 if Brown is traded. There's also some question about what the Steelers would receive in a trade, as Brown's odd behavior and possible desire for a new contract will probably scare most teams away. The 30-year-old wideout h... (More)2 days
40.Update: AB decides to meet with Art Roon... (Rotoworld) Updating an earlier report, Antonio Brown will meet with Steelers owner Art Rooney to discuss his standing with the team. Analysis: It was reported earlier by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport that Brown had declined a meeting with the team's owner but apparently he's had a change of heart. Brown officially requested a trade from the Steelers earlier this week following a turbulent season that included tension with Ben Roethlisberger and a practice outburst that led to his benching in Week 17. It's hard to see the two sides salvaging this toxic relationship, though apparently Brown is at least willing to he... (More)2 days
41.Bruce Ellington: Cut by Lions (RotoWire) Ellington (hamstring) was released by the Lions on Friday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports. Analysis: Ellington caught on with Detroit late in the 2018 season, catching 23 of 30 targets for 132 yards in four games before a hamstring injury sent him to injured reserve. He's proven to be a competent slot receiver on a few different occasions, but persistent hamstring issues have kept him off the field for most of his pro career. Regardless of where he ends up, Ellington figures to enter training camp on the roster bubble.2 days
42.Glover Quin: Cut free by Detroit (RotoWire) Quin was released by the Lions on Friday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Analysis: The 33-year-old started all 96 games in his six seasons with Detroit, averaging 71 tackles and 3.2 interceptions per year. He was one of the better free safeties in the NFL during his prime, but the Lions would rather clear out $6.25 million in cap space at this stage of Quin's career. The veteran shouldn't have too much trouble finding a chance to compete for another starting job, while Tracy Walker is poised to take over as the top free safety in Detroit.2 days
43.Lions release Glover Quin after six seas... (Rotoworld) Lions released FS Glover Quin.2 days
44.Lions part ways with slot man Bruce Elli... (Rotoworld) Lions released WR Bruce Ellington. Analysis: Ellington totaled 23 catches for 132 scoreless yards during a four-game stint with Detroit late last season. He's bounced around the league since joining the Niners as a fourth-round pick in 2014. The 27-year-old slot receiver should earn a look in free agency or at least a training camp invite, though wherever Ellington winds up, he'll have to fight for a 53-man roster spot.2 days
45.Fins to switch between 3-4 and 4-3 schem... (Rotoworld) According to Charles Trainor of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins will alternate between using 4-3 and 3-4 defensive schemes under new coach Brian Flores. Analysis: The Dolphins worked out of a 4-3 base last season. New England also employed a 4-3 scheme under Flores, though the Bill Belichick protege is well-known for varying his looks based on specific matchups as he did against the Rams in Super Bowl LIII. "It is going to be multiple," said new DC Patrick Graham, who worked beside Flores for several seasons in Foxboro. "We’re going to do what we need to do that week and that game.&qu... (More)2 days
46.Report: A.B. declines meeting with PIT o... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Antonio Brown has declined to meet with Steelers owner Art Rooney II. Analysis: Brown and Rooney spend large parts of their offseasons in Florida, and Rooney wanted to arrange a meetup with Brown to "clear the air." Brown has to this point decline, according to RapSheet, and continues to want a trade out of Pittsburgh. The Steelers know Brown has them over the flames, and Pittsburgh is going to get ripped off from a value standpoint in any trade it would make. At this point, it's hard to see the Steelers getting anything more than a Day 2 draft pick.2 days
47.Andy Dalton: Resumes throwing (RotoWire) Dalton (thumb) has been tossing a football for the past two weeks and recently began shooting a basketball, Geoff Hobson of the Bengals' official website reports. Analysis: Dalton seems to be on track in the rehab process after having surgery in late November to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb. There have been some murmurs about the Bengals trying to find a new quarterback for their new coaching staff, but director of player personnel Duke Tobin recently said Dalton will enter 2019 as the starter. With two seasons remaining on a team-friendly contract, the 31-year-old quarterback may push for some type of financial commitment to back up... (More)2 days
48.Mike Gillislee: Gets a look from Detroit (RotoWire) Gillislee worked out for the Lions on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Gillislee was released by the Patriots on Sept. 1 and cut by the Saints about five weeks later, finishing 2018 with 16 carries for 43 yards in four games. The 28-year-old would make sense as a potential short-yardage back in Detroit, where LeGarrette Blount presumably will be allowed to walk after turning in an ugly 2018 campaign (2.8 yards per carry). Given their various needs on defense, the Lions likely hope to go cheap behind Kerryon Johnson in the backfield.2 days
49.Broncos planning to cut ILB Brandon Mars... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos are "most likely" going to release ILB Brandon Marshall.2 days
50.Denzel Perryman: Can hit free agency (RotoWire) Perryman (knee/hamstring) can become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, Ricky Henne of the Chargers' official website reports. Analysis: The 2015 second-round pick has already missed 22 regular-season games, most recently suffering a season-ending LCL injury in Week 10 of 2018. Perryman was on pace for his first 100-tackle campaign prior to the injury, averaging 48 snaps per game as a starter at middle linebacker. He should be healthy before training camp in 2019, but it isn't clear if he'll re-sign with the Chargers or find a larger contract elsewhere. The 25-year-old might actually prefer a short-term deal, as a healthy campaign would s... (More)2 days
51.Falcons not planning to tender RFA CB Po... (Rotoworld) PFT's Mike Florio reports the Falcons informed restricted free agent CB Brian Poole he will not be tendered a contract. Analysis: Poole will now become an unrestricted free agent when the new league year opens March 13. The former UDFA has been the Falcons' full-time nickel corner since entering the league, playing 1,032 snaps as a rookie, 742 in 2017, and 832 last season. The Falcons are undergoing a significant shakeup in their defensive backfield after already releasing starting CB Robert Alford.2 days
52.Ben Watson: Could move to broadcasting (RotoWire) Watson (appendix) is drawing interest from ESPN for a job on television, Michael McCarthy of The Sporting News reports. Analysis: A generous broadcasting offer could tilt the 38-year-old tight end toward retirement if he's on the fence, though he'd likely still have opportunities if he waited another year or two. Watson started four of 16 games for the Saints in 2018, hauling in 35 of 46 targets for 400 yards and two touchdowns while averaging 32 snaps per game. Appendicitis held him out of the NFC Championship Game, but he should be healthy soon enough, if he isn't already. Watson presumably doesn't have any interest in playing for a team beside... (More)2 days
53.Brian Poole: Gets chance to hit open market (RotoWire) Poole doesn't expect to be tendered as a restricted free agent, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: It seems the Falcons have already notified the 26-year-old cornerback of their intention to let him test the open market. Poole is coming off a 2018 campaign in which he piled up 74 tackles (53 solo), three interceptions and three sacks from the nickelback spot, but his work in coverage apparently didn't impress the Atlanta front office. He may have to settle for a No. 4/5 cornerback job if other teams have a similar assessment.2 days
54.Case Keenum: Will be cut or traded (RotoWire) Keenum likely will be traded or released after the Broncos agreed to acquire fellow quarterback Joe Flacco, Mike Klis of 9News Denver reports. Analysis: The Broncos would love to find a trade partner even if the compensation is menial, as they'll have to pay the guaranteed portion ($7 million) of Keenum's $18 million base salary if they end up cutting him. He'd need to accept a pay cut -- an unlikely proposition -- to have any chance at staying in Denver. Keenum collected $18 million from the Broncos in 2018, completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 6.6 yards per attempt with an 18:15 TD:INT as a 16-game starter in an injury-laden offense. He lo...

55.Brandon Marshall: Expected to hit open market (RotoWire) The Broncos told Marshall they won't exercise his contract option for 2019, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Marshall handled most of Denver's defensive snaps through the first seven games of the 2018 campaign, but he never regained his starting job after a Week 8 knee injury led to five consecutive absences. While he's undoubtedly declined from his 2014-15 peak, Marshall is 29 years old and just two seasons removed from a 106-tackle, three-sack campaign as a 16-game starter in 2017. He should at least find a chance to compete for a starting job, while Denver figures to move forward with Josey Jewell and/or an offseason acquisition next t... (More)2 days
56.Nick Foles and the Jaguars have "mutual interest" (FantasyPros) Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports Nick Foles and the Jaguars have mutual interest. Analysis: Foles' market has shrunk with Denvers' recent trade for Joe Flacco. The Jaguars are an obvious fit and right now have to be viewed as the front runner for the former Super Bowl MVP. NJ.com has also reported Foles is keeping tabs on the Giants' quarterback situation in case they move on from Eli Manning.2 days
57.Report: CIN interviewing Aaron Glenn for... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Josina Anderson reports the Bengals have requested an interview with Saints secondary coach Aaron Glenn for their vacated defensive-coordinator role. Analysis: Glenn is reportedly next in line after the Bengals were spurned by Dom Capers, Jack Del Rio and Todd Grantham (among others) trying to fill their vacant DC role. Ex-Falcons DC Marquand Manuel, Texas A&M DC Mike Elko, and Rams DBs coach Aubrey Pleasant have also been linked to Cincinnati. The longest-running offseason comedy will continue until someone finally agrees to coach 2018's historically-awful unit.2 days
58.'All indications' Steelers plan to tag B... (Rotoworld) The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports "all indications" are the Steelers plan to use the transition tag on free agent Le'Veon Bell. Analysis: Yikes. The first day the Steelers can apply the tag is next Tuesday. It is an almost stunning level of pettiness, but within the Steelers' rights via the collective bargaining agreement. Per reporter Gerry Dulac, under no circumstance would the Steelers consider actually keeping Bell. The scheme would also require Bell signing the tag. The Steelers' endgame would be: Getting Bell to sign the tag, matching an offer sheet from another team, and then trad... (More)2 days
59.Report: Kap wanted $20 million to play i... (Rotoworld) The Associated Press reports free agent Colin Kaepernick would only "consider" playing in the AAF for $20 million or more. Analysis: It's hardly a surprise for a player who believes he is being illegally blackballed from the NFL and made $14.3 million his most recent year in the league. The AAF, of course, pays nowhere near those wages. Kap to a developmental league was never going to happen. He does not need to develop.2 days
60.AAF reached out to Kap, Tebow; both decl... (Rotoworld) AAF co-founder Bill Polian told the Athletic's Lindsay Jones that he reached out to free agent Colin Kaepernick about continuing his career in the league. Analysis: "I don’t know what transpired, but he’s obviously not playing," Polian said. Polian also said he personally spoke to Tim Tebow about playing in the league, but Tebow is wrapped up in a baseball career with the Mets. Kap continues to hold out hope for a second shot at the NFL, but that seems highly unlikely at this point. Kaepernick hasn't played a down of football since 2016. The AAF enjoyed a fine opening weekend last we... (More)2 days
61.Report: Foles 'keeping tabs on' Giants (Rotoworld) NJ.com reports free agent Nick Foles is "expected to keep tabs on" the Giants' quarterback situation. Analysis: Someone with "knowledge of Foles' thinking" believes he would "probably" be open to signing with the Giants if they move on from Eli Manning. Foles, of course, will be highly interested in any opening. The Giants have continued to insist Manning is in their 2019 plans. There is still time for that to change, but it remains the most likely scenario for the G-Men.2 days
62.Raiders add John Morton to offensive sta... (Rotoworld) Raiders hired ex-Jets OC John Morton as senior offensive assistant. Analysis: Morton earned early praise for his work coordinating the Jets' 2017 offense, but that changed as the year wore on. Morton reportedly had both personality and philosophical clashes with his colleagues. He spent 2018 out of the league, generating no news. He will be a sounding board for coach Jon Gruden and OC Greg Olson.2 days
63.Dynasty | Nick Foles connected to Jacksonville again (Dynasty League Football) Multiple beat writers are suggesting mutual interest between Nick Foles and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Analysis: Foles is still under the Eagles' team control, but that doesn't mean much in this situation. Foles is going to be in a different uniform next season one way or another. The Eagles could use the franchise tag and trade him somewhere or just let him go and look to get a compensatory pick in the 2020 draft.Foles is a tough player to really put value on as he's had some serious ups and downs throughout his seven year career with the Eag... (More)3 days
64.Dynasty | Pierre Garcon has option declined (Dynasty League Football) Pierre Garcon's contract option was declined by San Francisco, making him an unrestricted free agent. Analysis: Many will take this as a sign the 49ers are making room for Antonio Brown. However, Garcon was on a five-year, $47.5 million contract and posted just 24 catches for 286 yards last season, making that contract virtually impossible to justify, regardless of the 49ers interest in Brown. The former 6th round pick of the Colts has had a fantastic 11-year career with 628 catches, 7,854 yards and 38 touchdowns with the Colts, Redskins and 49ers. Afte... (More)3 days
65.Colts considered unlikely to pursue AB t... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Mike Wells does not expect the Colts to pursue Antonio Brown. Analysis: The Colts are overflowing with cap space. They also have a thin receiver depth chart behind T.Y. Hilton. Nevertheless, Wells does not expect GM Chris Ballard to make a run, due at least in part fo the distraction factor. The Steelers reportedly will not trade Brown to the AFC North or Patriots. If Indy also isn't a player, that's a fertile ground of potential suitors who are already off the board.3 days
66.Colts considered unlikely to pursue Le'V... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Mike Wells does not expect the Colts to pursue free agent Le'Veon Bell. Analysis: There have been rumors that Indianapolis is one of Bell's preferred destinations. The Colts are also awash in cap space, but they survived 2018 with a committee backfield. GM Chris Ballard has quickly developed a reputation as a shrewd operator. Shrewd NFL operators won't be giving Bell the contract he seeks.3 days
67.Alex Okafor: To hit open market (RotoWire) Despite agreeing to a two-year contract with New Orleans last offseason, Okafor is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the league year March 13, Herbie Toepe of NFL.com reports. Analysis: At the time Okafor signed, he was coming back from an Achilles injury that prematurely ended his 2017 season. As part of the deal, Okafor's representatives reportedly bargained for a clause in Okafor's contract that allowed the defensive end to become an unrestricted free agent if he totaled at least three sacks in 2018. Since Okafor ultimately recorded four sacks, he was able to trigger the clause, which now sets the 28-year-old up fo... (More)3 days
68.Colt McCoy: Making strides in rehab (RotoWire) McCoy (leg) was recently seen without any support on his recovering leg, Rhiannon Walker of the Athletic reports. Analysis: A fractured fibula planted McCoy on injured reserve for the conclusion of the 2018 season. However, it seems the quarterback has progressed well in his rehab, so much so that it's not stretch to think he could be fully ready for the start of OTAs this spring. With Alex Smith (lower leg) not expected to play in 2019, McCoy is tentatively entering the offseason as the No. 1 signal caller on the depth chart in Washington.3 days
69.Christian Kirk: Nearly back to full health (RotoWire) Kirk (foot) said Wednesday that he expects to be fully healthy by the end of February. Analysis: Kirk previously suggested he wouldn't face any limitations when the Cardinals hold OTAs in May, but the wideout is apparently going to be back to full strength well in advance of Arizona's offseason program. The fact that Kirk won't be forced to miss any workouts bodes well for his chances of gaining quick familiarity with new coach Kliff Kingsbury's offensive scheme. Prior to breaking his left foot in December and requiring surgery, Kirk had solidified himself as a starter for the Cardinals, finishing his rookie campaign with 43 receptions for 590 ya... (More)3 days
70.Keke Coutee says he is fully healthy (Rotoworld) Keke Coutee said he is "feeling like myself." Analysis: Coutee was limited to just six games as a rookie because of hamstring issues, but he was able to return in the playoffs and is seemingly back to full health. "I'm feeling great," Coutee said. "I'm feeling really good." Coutee should open 2019 as the No. 3 receiver in Houston, but Will Fuller is recovering from an ACL tear and has also struggled to stay on the field to this point in his career. If Coutee can put the hamstring issues behind him, he could find himself in a surprisingly large role moving forward.3 days
71.Glover Quin: Uncertain to remain with Detroit (RotoWire) Quin seems likely to be cut if he doesn't retire this offseason, Mike Clay of ESPN reports. Analysis: A staple of the Lions secondary for six seasons now, Quin's performance declined in 2018 during his age-32 season, regardless of what his respectable stat line may suggest. Detroit could save over $6 million in cap space by letting him go, and that's a decision that seems much easier to make now that 2018 third-rounder Tracy Walker flashed promise as a rookie. In any event, it's been a long time since Quandre Diggs took the torch from Quin as the Lions safety to own in IDP formats.3 days
72.Jurrell Casey: No Pro Bowl thanks to injuries (RotoWire) Casey (knee) was unable to play in last month's Pro Bowl for injury-related reasons, Jim Wyatt of the Titans' official site reports. Analysis: Casey ended the 2018 season on injured reserve after hurting his knee in the second-to-last game of the season. It's a shame he wasn't able to suit up for his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl after another impressive season in which he ultimately finished as the top-graded interior defensive lineman in the AFC South, per Pro Football Focus. The bright side of the situation is that there's been no word Casey is dealing with a long-term knee injury, making it seem possible he could be back on the field by the tim... (More)3 days
73.'Mutual interest' between Foles, Jaguars (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports Nick Foles and the Jaguars have "mutual interest." Analysis: Surprisingly few teams enter this offseason with a real need at quarterback, and one of those, the Broncos, seemingly made their move by trading for Joe Flacco on Wednesday. That leaves the Jaguars as the best and most likely landing spot for the former Super Bowl MVP. Jacksonville does not have any cap space right now, but they can create room with a few expected cuts.3 days
74.Deionte Thompson has assault charge drop... (Rotoworld) The aggravated assault charge against Alabama S Deionte Thompson has been dismissed. Analysis: Thompson was arrested in April of 2017 after being accused of kicking a man in the head during a brawl in March of that year. "I believe that (the district attorney’s office) took another look at the information that they had in regard to the case and reconsidered their position," Thompson’s lawyer, Sean Villery-Samuel said. "And after doing that, I believe they came to the right conclusion, that he had nothing to do with this." One of the top safeties available in the draft, Thompson has a good shot to come off the board on Day ... (More)3 days
75.Pierre Garcon: Set to hit free agency (RotoWire) The 49ers informed Garcon on Thursday that they won't exercise his $6 million team option for 2019, allowing him to become a free agent in March, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The transaction only clears $1.53 million in cap space for the 49ers, but that provided enough of a benefit for the team to part ways with an aging wideout who missed 16 of 32 games due to injury during his two seasons in San Francisco. Set to turn 33 years old in August, Garcon will most likely have to settle for a one-year deal on the open market and probably won't be counted on to fill much more than a depth role with his next team.3 days
76.Grantham rebuffs Bengals, staying at Flo... (Rotoworld) Florida DC Todd Grantham pulled himself out of the running for the Bengals' defensive coordinator job. Analysis: Grantham was believed to be the favorite for the job and even had an interview this week, but he joins a long line of coaches who have declined to coordinate Zac Taylor's defense. The Bengals will now have to move further down a list which reportedly includes ex-Falcons DC Marquand Manuel, Texas A&M DC Mike Elko, Saints DBs coach Aaron Glenn, and Rams DBs coach Aubrey Pleasant.3 days
77.49ers decline Pierre Garcon's 2019 optio... (Rotoworld) 49ers declined Pierre Garcon's 2019 option. Analysis: Owed $6 million in salary and bonuses, it would have been a shock if the 49ers decided to keep Garcon around. Garcon finishes his time in San Francisco with just 64 catches for 786 yards and a touchdown in 16 games across two seasons. Set to turn 33 before the start of the season, Garcon will likely find a cold market.3 days
78.Dynasty | Isaiah Crowell a likely cut candidate (Dynasty League Football) The Jets are expected to release Isaiah Crowell after re-tooling their running back corps this off-season. Analysis: The Jets are fully expected to go after running backs like Le'Veon Bell and Tevin Coleman in free agency this off-season. If and when they sign either of those two players, add a different free agent or draft a running back to add to their group, Crowell is reportedly going to be the odd man out. Crowell has been a very streaky player throughout his career and that didn't change last season. A new team could actually do wonders for ... (More)3 days
79.Dynasty | Case Keenum's time in Denver coming to an end (Dynasty League Football) Case Keenum is unlikely to return to Denver next season. Analysis: The Broncos traded for Joe Flacco today and that's clearly going to make Keenum expendable. Keenum is on the hook for $7 million for next season and has a $21 million cap hit with an $18 million base salary remaining on his contract. If the Broncos end up having to release Keenum, they’d get $11 million in cap space but take a $10 million hit in terms of dead money. With the financial ramifications, it’s doubtful a team really trades for Keenum and takes on that kind of finan... (More)3 days
80.Corey Liuget: Chargers decline option for 2019 (FantasyPros) The Chargers announced Wednesday that they will not exercise the 2019 option on defensive lineman Corey Liuget's contract. Liuget, who has spent his entire eight year career with the Chargers, will become a free agent on March 13th. Analysis: Chargers General Manager Tom Telesco did not rule out the possibility that Liuget could still return to the team on a new deal in a statement Wednesday. "Corey's made major contributions to this organization since being our first-round selection in 2011 both on and off the field," said Telesco. "He was our Walter Payton Man of the Year nominee in 2018 for a reason and you won't find a player who made a... (More)3 days
81.Sean Lee plans to play in 2019 (FantasyPros) According to Calvin Watkins of The Athletic, Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee expects to play in 2019. Analysis: After the Cowboys were eliminated from the playoffs in January, Lee stated that, while he was leaning towards continuing his career, he wanted to take some time to consider his future. It appears he has made his decision, although it's far from a guarantee that he will remain with Dallas. The Cowboys can save $7 million against the cap by cutting him.3 days
82.Chargers decline DT Corey Liuget's optio... (Rotoworld) Chargers declined DT Corey Liuget's 2019 option. Analysis: He'll become a free agent in March. Liuget has struggled with injuries and suspensions the last two years, missing 14-of-32 games. He's hasn't lived up to his contract when on the field, making it an easy decision to move on from his $9.5 million cap hit. Chargers GM Tom Telesco didn't rule out re-signing Liuget at a lower salary.3 days
83.Kirk expects to be fully healthy next mo... (Rotoworld) Christian Kirk (foot) expects to be fully healthy next month. Analysis: Kirk has been ahead of schedule in his rehab after breaking his foot in December. This puts him on track to be ready for OTAs. Coming off a strong rookie season, Kirk has potential for a second-year breakout if Josh Rosen takes a step forward under a new coaching staff.3 days
84.Jaylon Ferguson has Combine invite resci... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Louisiana Tech DE Jaylon Ferguson won't attend the NFL Combine. Analysis: Ferguson had his invitation rescinded after a background check revealed he was convicted of simple battery his freshman year. He also had a minor public intoxication charge in college. Teams were aware of Ferguson's off-field issues, but not attending the Combine is going to hurt his draft stock. Mississippi State DT Jeffery Simmons and Colorado State WR Preston Williams also had their Combine invites revoked last month.4 days
85.Josh Lambo: Inks four-year extension (RotoWire) Lambo announced on his personal Twitter account that he's signed a four-year contract extension with the Jaguars. Analysis: In a league where kicking has proved paramount as of late, it was a priority for Jacksonville to lock down one of the league's more successful legs of the past couple seasons. Not only did Lambo recently set a franchise record for most consecutive field goals (24), but he also nailed a career-long 57-yarder this past season and currently has an 86-percent conversion rate on career field-goal attempts. He could be in the discussion for fantasy consideration in 2019 depending on how the Jaguars offensive roster looks when the ... (More)4 days
86.Dynasty | Joe Flacco dealt to Denver (Dynasty League Football) The Ravens have reportedly reached an agreement to trade quarterback Joe Flacco to the Denver Broncos, in exchange for a mid-round pick in this year's NFL Draft. Analysis: The Broncos have long been searching for a replacement for Peyton Manning and they'll roll with Flacco as soon as this trade becomes official at the start of the new league year. It's a little surprising the Broncos aren't aiming a little higher, but they have talent to surround Flacco and GM John Elway has long been a fan of veteran quarterbacks. The dynasty value of F...

87.Steven Means: Gets one-year extension (RotoWire) Means signed a one-year contract extension with the Falcons on Wednesday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Means played in eight games for the Falcons last season (starting four) and collected 14 tackles with one sack along the way. His path to playing time is a bit clearer at the moment with Brooks Reed out of the picture, but that could change depending on what Atlanta does in the draft and free agency.4 days
88.Jaguars extend Josh Lambo (Rotoworld) Jaguars signed Josh Lambo to a contract extension. Analysis: Lambo was set to be an unrestricted free agent. He converted 19-of-21 field goals and missed just one extra point in 2018, so this was an easy to bring him back.4 days
89.Falcons give Steven Means one-year exten... (Rotoworld) Falcons signed DE Steven Means to a one-year extension. Analysis: Means is a journeyman that found his way into four starts with Atlanta last year. He grades well against the run — posting 14 tackles and three TFLs in eight appearances. Means should return as part of Atlanta's early-down mix.4 days
90.Falcons open to re-signing Schaub (Rotoworld) Falcons coach Dan Quinn said free agent Matt Schaub could be re-signed. Analysis: Schaub has been Matt Ryan's backup the last three seasons. He's looked washed when called into spot duty but wouldn't cost much to keep. Even if he re-signs, the Falcons should bring in competition for 37-year-old Schaub.4 days
91.Keith Kirkwood: Calf injury wasn't serious (RotoWire) Kirkwood (calf) returned to workouts within days of the Saints' season-ending playoff loss to the Rams, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Analysis: Kirkwood showed promise as a rookie in 2018, catching 13 passes for 209 yards and two scores. Four of those receptions were for more than 20 yards, and he added another touchdown in the Saints' divisional-round victory over Philadelphia. The undrafted Temple product unfortunately strained his calf during that game against the Eagles, though, and he was consequently unable to practice all week ahead of the NFC Championship Game against Los Angeles. However, Kirkwood's quick re... (More)4 days
92.Emmanuel Sanders: Making progress in recovery (RotoWire) Sanders (Achilles) is no longer wearing a walking boot on his injured foot but is moving around with a "slight limp," Zack Kelberman of CBS 4 Denver reports. Analysis: Sanders originally tore his ACL in early December and was given a six-month timeline for his recovery. He appears to have avoided any setbacks in the two months since suffering the injury, and while it seems unlikely he'll be available for OTAs this spring, Sanders should be ready to go well before the start of training camp. That said, it's possible Sanders could take his time getting back onto the field considering the soon-to-be 32-year-old is entering a contract year in 2019 on... (More)4 days
93.Lions re-sign LS Don Muhlbach (Rotoworld) Lions re-signed LS Don Muhlbach. Analysis: Muhlbach is the Lions' longest-tenured player. He's been snapping the snaps longer than normal snaps since before Barry Sanders was born.4 days
94.Keanu Neal: Making progress in rehab (RotoWire) Neal (knee) posted a video on his personal Instagram account in January featuring himself going through agility drills with no brace on his left knee. Analysis: Neal, who tore his ACL in the 2018 season opener, seems to be progressing well in his recovery from surgery. It isn't clear if he'll be ready for OTAs later this spring, but the safety at least appears on track to enter training camp with limited restrictions. The Falcons are expected to pick up the fifth-year option on the 2016 first-round pick's contract this spring.4 days
95.Muhammad Wilkerson: Hoping to stay in Green Bay (RotoWire) Wilkerson (ankle) intends to re-sign with Green Bay ahead of the 2019 season, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports. "I like it here a lot," Wilkerson said. "I came here to prove that I can play at a high level and that was cut short. But that's how the game goes sometimes. I definitely want to get another shot to show what I can do." Analysis: Wilkerson, who signed with the Packers this past offseason, only lasted three games before fracturing and tearing "most if not all... of [the] ligaments" in his left ankle. There remains no timetable for his return to the field. It's possible Green Bay could get him at a discounted price tag this time arou... (More)4 days
96.Broncos send 4th-rounder to Ravens for F... (Rotoworld) Broncos acquired QB Joe Flacco from the Ravens in exchange for a 2019 fourth-round pick. Analysis: Denver had a pair of fourth-rounders in April's draft, and they'll send their own to Baltimore and keep the one it got from Houston in the Demaryius Thomas trade. The move will be officially official when the new league year opens on March 13. Flacco is 34 with a troubling injury history that includes back and hip issues along with a torn ACL a few years back. The guy simply cannot move outside of the pocket and is going to need serious protection from an offensive line that on paper looks like one o... (More)4 days
97.49ers release OT Garry Gilliam, save $5.... (Rotoworld) 49ers released OT Garry Gilliam. Analysis: Gilliam was due a $4.5 million salary this season in the final year of his deal, and the move clears $5.05 million in cap space for the Niners. The 28-year-old played just 84 snaps last season and wasn't needed at his price tag with LT Joe Staley and RT Mike McGlinchey locked in as starters.4 days
98.Glazer 'bold prediction' is Giants trade... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jay Glazer's "bold prediction" is the Giants trade Odell Beckham this offseason. Analysis: Glazer believes there will be trade talk surrounding OBJ, and he later was asked in a mailbag to offer up a bold prediction for something that will happen this offseason. Glazer went with the Giants trading their star receiver. Just last month, GM Dave Gettleman insisted Beckham would not be dealt, and Gettleman was the one who dolled out the long-term deal to OBJ last summer. Still, Beckham continued to be a thorn in the side of the coaching staff with his off-field chatter and ope... (More)4 days
99.Broncos expected to release or trade Kee... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Broncos "will now shop" Case Keenum after acquiring Joe Flacco from the Ravens on Wednesday. Analysis: Keenum inked a two-year, $36 million deal with Denver last offseason and was never going to be anything more than a short-term stopgap, one that now looks like will only last a single season. Keenum is guaranteed $7 million in 2019 and carries a $21 million cap hit with an $18 million base salary. Only a team that views Keenum as a starter would trade for that financial commitment. If the Broncos end up having to release Keenum, they'd clear $11 m... (More)4 days
100.Case Keenum: Likely done as starter in Denver (RotoWire) The Broncos' impending trade for Joe Flacco likely marks the end of Keenum's tenure as the starting quarterback in Denver, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports. Analysis: Signed to a two-year, $36 million contract last offseason, Keenum failed to replicate his Minnesota magic from 2017, completing 62.3 percent of his passes for 6.6 yards per attempt with an 18:15 TD:INT as a 16-game starter for the Broncos. The team can free up $11 million in cap space if Keenum is removed from the roster, while any team that trades for him would inherit an $18 million base salary that includes $7 million guaranteed, per OverTheCap.com. The significant commitment ... (More)4 days
