1.Dak Prescott: Discussing extension (RotoWire) Discussions with Prescott about a contract extension are in progress according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: With defensive end Demarcus Lawrence locked up, Prescott and Amari Cooper are next in line for extensions, followed by Ezekiel Elliott. The 25-year-old quarterback hasn't quite delivered on the promise of his rookie season, but he does provide durability (zero missed games), a winning record (32-16), rushing ability (18 touchdowns) and respectable passing efficiency (66.1 completion percentage, 7.4 yards per attempt). There's also a reasonable expectation f... (More)2 days
2.Cowboys having 'active' talks with Amari... (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the team is having "active discussions" with contract-year WR Amari Cooper. Analysis: He said the same thing about Dak Prescott, though those negotiations have been more in the news. Still two months shy of his 25th birthday, Cooper has had an up-and-down career but made an instant impact upon coming over from the Raiders last October. Jerry Jones is not the kind of owner who is going to surrender a first-round pick for a player then let them walk in free agency. A deal will eventually get done.2 days
3.Zach Miller retires following 2017 leg i... (Rotoworld) Zach Miller has retired after 10 years in the NFL. Analysis: Miller's horrific 2017 leg injury — which required nine surgeries — proved to be too much to overcome. 33 then, Miller is now going on 35. A 2009 sixth-round pick of the Jaguars, Miller had major issues with injury even before the big one. He hangs up his cleats with 146 career grabs for 1,631 yards and 15 scores. Miller always offered play-making upside, but his injury issues always prevented him from fully tapping into it.2 days
4.Damon Harrison: Skipping voluntary workouts (RotoWire) Harrison isn't present for the start of the Lions' voluntary workout program, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. Analysis: Harrison outplayed his five-year, $46.2 million contract with the Giants and continued to do so after he was traded to Detroit in October. He's now hoping for a new deal to replace the final two seasons of the aforementioned contract, as he doesn't have any guaranteed money remaining and is scheduled for base salaries of $6.75 million (2019) and $9 million (2020), per overthecap.com. A report in late March suggested the Lions have been receptive to negotiations with the 30-year-old defensive tackle.2 days
5.Reshad Jones: Skipping voluntary minicamp (RotoWire) Jones (shoulder) isn't present Tuesday for the start of a three-day voluntary minicamp, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports. Analysis: Jones showed up for the start of the offseason program a couple weeks ago and reportedly hasn't missed any team meetings. Coach Brian Flores didn't get too far into specifics when discussing the absence this week, merely saying that rehab from February shoulder surgery is one of several factors in the 31-year-old safety's decision to skip voluntary minicamp. As the highest-paid player on a rebuilding team, Jones has been a frequent subject of trade rumors this offseason, though his fully guaranteed $13.015 mi... (More)2 days
6.Andrew Luck: Feels good after healthy offseason (RotoWire) Luck said the 2019 offseason has been the best of his professional career, Mike Chappell of Fox 59 News Indianapolis reports. Analysis: Following three consecutive offseasons devoted to rehab/recovery for his right shoulder, Luck was finally able to step away from his job and took the opportunity to get married in March. He's now back alongside his teammates for the start of the offseason program, with a plan that doesn't include any throwing during the initial phase of workouts. The Colts haven't made much noise with free-agent additions on offense, but they already have a strong foundation and still have a ton of cap space to supplement their r... (More)2 days
7.Cards claim they are undecided on No. 1 ... (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, Cardinals GM Steve Keim claimed he remained undecided on who to select with the No. 1 overall pick. Analysis: "We are not done with this process," Keim said aloud. "We have not made a decision on the first overall pick. ... The fact that I don't know what we're doing but everyone else does is concerning." Funny quip aside, Keim's words continue to ring hollow. All other available evidence has the Cardinals locked in on Oklahoma's Kyler Murray in the top spot. Doing his best to avoid throwing Josh Rosen all the way under the bus, Keim continues to throw bouquets his way. We would be shocked to hear a name ot... (More)2 days
8.Fletcher Cox: Still aiming for training camp (RotoWire) Cox is still rehabbing from offseason foot surgery with the goal to be ready for training camp, Daniel Gallen of PennLive.com reports. Analysis: Cox injured his foot during a Jan. 13 playoff loss to the Saints and had surgery at some point thereafter. Although he wasn't using a walking boot Tuesday at team headquarters, there doesn't seem to be any expectation of active participation in the Eagles' offseason program. The 28-year-old defensive tackle is entering the third season of a six-year, $102.6 million extension, coming off a 2018 campaign with career highs in sacks (10.5), quarterback hits (34) and tackles for loss (12).2 days
9.Roethlisberger: 'We are all about each o... (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, Ben Roethlisberger said the Steelers are "all about each other." Analysis: "I expect nothing else," Roethlisberger said of robust attendance at voluntary workouts. "We want to show we are here, dedicated to this team, dedicated to having a great season. We are all about each other." That is true, except for when they are not, which is all the time. Antonio Brown was clearly a genuine source of division, but the same has seemed to be true of Roethlisberger. He needs to do a better job leading his football team during his age-37 campaign. 2 days
10.Rams waive offensive tackle Kyle Murphy (Rotoworld) Rams waived OT Kyle Murphy. Analysis: The move comes with a "non-football injury" designation. Murphy was placed on injured reserve with an ankle issue by the Packers last September. The 2016 sixth-rounder has made six career appearances, including three 2017 starts in Green Bay.2 days
11.Watt not planning to retire 'any time so... (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, J.J. Watt said he is not planning to retire "any time soon." Analysis: Now on the wrong side of 30, Watt missed nearly all of 2016-17 with injury but rebounded with a dominant 2018. He is hoping the two lost seasons create more time on the back end of his career. Typically, that is not how it works, but Watt is a famously hard worker. If he can keep his health in order, he should have at least 2-3 more excellent years in the pipeline.2 days
12.J.J. Watt: Calls himself healthy (RotoWire) Watt (knee) termed himself healthy as the Texans' offseason program kicks off, Drew Dougherty of the team's official site reports. "I get to work on my craft, work in the weight room," Watt told Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. "Last two years hoping to get back to play and hoping to play at a decent level." Analysis: After a pair of injury-plagued years, Watt bounced back in 2018 to something resembling his peak from earlier this decade. Overall, he posted his fourth-most sacks (16) in a given campaign while accumulating 61 tackles and a career-best seven forced fumbles in 16 games. Watt underwent a minor procedure on his knee following th... (More)2 days
13.Dynasty | Russell Wilson signs extension (Dynasty League Football) The Seattle Seahawks have reached an agreement with with Russell Wilson which will keep the quarterback in the Emerald City for the next four years Analysis: It's a 4-year, $140M deal with a $65M signing bonus and a no-trade clause. The deal came in a mere half-hour before the Wilson-imposed deadline. Wilson has been a pillar of performance and high-values since entering the league in 2012, throwing for at least 30 touchdowns in three of the last four years though 2018 did see a decline in both passing and rushing yardage. In 2018, Wilson only finish... (More)2 days
14.Ronald Jones II: Off to a good start under Arians (RotoWire) General manager Jason Licht said Jones has impressed the new coaching staff more than any other player so far this spring, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Analysis: The 2018 second-round pick barely played as a rookie and struggled with his rare opportunities, but coach Bruce Arians made it clear Jones would have a chance to prove himself in a new system. While he could face more competition after the 2019 NFL Draft, the 21-year-old currently finds himself in an underwhelming backfield alongside Peyton Barber, Shaun Wilson, Andre Ellington and Dare Ogunbowale. The Buccaneers do seem to be fond of Barber, who managed just 3.7 yards per carry a... (More)2 days
15.Tashawn Bower: Recovering from foot/ankle injury (RotoWire) Bower (foot/ankle) has a walking boot over his left foot at the beginning of the Vikings' offseason program, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Between an ankle injury and a few healthy scratches, Bower was limited to five games in 2018, his second professional season. The walking boot suggests he had surgery somewhere along the line, potentially impacting his bid to stay on the roster for another year. Bower still has plenty of time to make a full recovery before the start of training camp in late July.2 days
16.Leonard Fournette: Won't be punished by team (RotoWire) Coach Doug Marrone said Fournette won't face any team discipline for his recent arrest, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Given that he was arrested for an unpaid speeding ticket, Fournette never figured to face discipline from the Jaguars or the NFL. Still, it isn't the best look for a player who seems to be on thin ice after a tumultuous 2018 campaign marked by injuries, weight gain, inefficient running (3.3 YPC) and a one-game suspension for an on-field brawl. The Jaguars used the suspension as justification to void the remaining guarantees in Fournette's rookie contract, but they've also made it a point to say he still has a fu... (More)2 days
17.Telvin Smith: Missing at voluntary workouts (RotoWire) Smith is not with the Jaguars for the beginning of their voluntary offseason workouts, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Smith and Jalen Ramsey are the only two members of the team absent for the start of the offseason program. The 28-year-old is signed through 2021 and has $30 million remaining on the contract after signing an extension in late 2017, so it's unlikely to be any sort of holdout situation. Smith figures to report by June 11 for the start of mandatory minicamp.2 days
18.Matt Kalil (knee) not yet back to full h... (Rotoworld) New Texans OT Matt Kalil (knee) said he is not yet back to full health. Analysis: Kalil missed all of 2018 in Carolina after having his knee scoped in August. The exact nature of his injury was never fully disclosed. A liability even before he sat out an entire season with a mysterious ailment, Kalil is probably still the favorite to start over 2018 disappointment Julie'n Davenport.3 days
19.Fletcher Cox (foot) aiming for training ... (Rotoworld) Eagles DT Fletcher Cox (foot surgery) confirmed he is aiming for a training camp return. Analysis: Cox was injured in the Divisional Round. A 2018 first-team All-Pro, Cox has missed only three games across seven NFL seasons. Even if he is not 100 percent for the beginning of camp, he should be ready to rock for Week 1.3 days
20.Jalen Ramsey: Not present for offseason work (RotoWire) Ramsey isn't present for the start of the Jaguars' offseason program, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Ramsey's absence was a given unless the Jaguars signed him to a long-term contract before Monday. The 24-year-old cornerback is entering the fourth and final season of his rookie deal, but the Jaguars can maintain control through 2020 via the fifth-year option. With the franchise tag then available starting in 2021, the team has considerable leverage in contract negotiations. Ramsey theoretically can balance that out by staying away from Jaguars headquarters, though his absence wouldn't technically be a holdout until the start of... (More)3 days
21.Damon Harrison sitting out offseason wor... (Rotoworld) MLive's Kyle Meinke reports Lions NT Damon Harrison did not report for the start of the offseason program. Analysis: It is not a surprise considering Harrison recently approached the team about a new contract. With two years left on his deal, it seems unlikely the Lions give Harrison what he wants, but maybe turning some of his salary into a bonus would work for both sides. Acquired from the Giants last October, Harrison immediately upgraded Detroit's run defense.3 days
22.Lamar Jackson focused on improving accur... (Rotoworld) Lamar Jackson said he focused on improving his accuracy this offseason.3 days
23.Hunter Henry: Feeling good at offseason program (RotoWire) Henry said his surgically repaired right knee feels good, but he did acknowledge feeling occasional soreness after workouts, Ricky Henne of the Chargers 'official website reports. "I'm pretty much full-go," Henry said Monday. "Everything feels good. It still gets sore every once in a while, but it's nothing too bad. It's nothing that's crazy. It's just a workout soreness." Analysis: The 24-year-old tight end didn't have any limitations Monday when the Chargers opened their offseason program with the usual strength and conditioning work. Henry's full participation shouldn't come as any surprise given that he played 14 snaps in a Jan. 13 playoff lo... (More)3 days
24.Jakeem Grant: Still rehabbing Achilles injury (RotoWire) Grant (Achilles) is still working his way back to full strength, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Grant suffered the season-ending injury Nov. 11 and had surgery a week later, but he denied early reports that the issue was an Achilles rupture. Whatever the case, he's still in the rehab process five months later, presumably hoping to be ready for the start of training camp in late July. The 26-year-old figures to have a role in the return game and could even challenge DeVante Parker for a regular spot in three-wide sets.3 days
25.Albert Wilson: Still in rehab process (RotoWire) Wilson is still rehabbing from his season-ending hip injury, Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Wilson hoped to regain full health before the start of Miami's offseason program, but he'll likely be limited or absent when the team begins practicing in May. He still has plenty of time to make it back for the start of training camp in late July, at which point he'll be nine months removed from suffering a small fracture and labrum tear in his hip. The 26-year-old won't have trouble earning snaps once he's healthy, as the Dolphins haven't signed a replacement for Danny Amendola (Lions). Wilson has the most slot experience among the team's c... (More)3 days
26.Jags won't discipline Fournette for arre... (Rotoworld) Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said Leonard Fournette will not face any team discipline stemming from his arrest last week. Analysis: Fournette was arrested in Jacksonville for speeding and "knowingly driving with a suspended license." Marrone called the situation a mistake and added he was arrested for a similar offense when he was younger. The incident was a concern given Fournette's seemingly strained relationship with the organization, but the Jaguars are content to let it blow over.3 days
27.GM: Ronald Jones impressing coaches (Rotoworld) Bucs GM Jason Licht said Ronald Jones is the player who has impressed the new coaching staff the most this spring. Analysis: A second-round pick last year, Jones was an abject disaster as a rookie, gaining just 77 yards on 30 touches while taking a backseat to both Peyton Barber and Jacquizz Rodgers. It would be foolish to write Jones off after one season, but any offseason love should be taken with a grain of salt. After what Jones showed last year, it would not be surprising if the Bucs add another back in the draft.3 days
28.Frank Clark: Could be available for trade (RotoWire) The Seahawks likely will listen to trade offers for Clark, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Clark hasn't signed his $17.1 million franchise tag and isn't expected to show up for training camp without a long-term contract. The Seahawks still have a decent cap situation after finalizing an extension for Russell Wilson, but they also have stud middle linebacker Bobby Wagner heading into a contract season. It's possible Clark is the odd man out, as the recent deals for Trey Flowers (Lions) and Demarcus Lawrence (Cowboys) will make it difficult for the Seahawks to lock down their top pass rusher for less than $20 million per year. Clark... (More)3 days
29.Todd Gurley says he is 'feeling pretty g... (Rotoworld) Todd Gurley (knee) said he is "feeling pretty good." Analysis: Gurley was understandably questioned about the knee which derailed his 2018 season when the Rams opened their offseason program on Monday, but he did not reveal much about the injury. "All I can worry about is how I’m feeling right now," Gurley said. "I don’t know how I’m going to be feeling six months from now. … Just trying to make sure I feel the best when the season comes." Despite a report saying Gurley is dealing with arthritis in his knee, the Rams have consistently downplayed the severity of the ... (More)3 days
30.Allen Bailey scheduled to visit Seahawks (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter reports free agent DE Allen Bailey is visiting the Seahawks. Analysis: The former Chief has also met with the Panthers and Patriots. Bailey will be a rotational piece wherever he lands.3 days
31.Beckwith (ankle) not cleared to practice (Rotoworld) Bucs GM Jason Licht said LB Kendell Beckwith (ankle) has not been cleared to practice. Analysis: Beckwith suffered a broken ankle in a car accident almost exactly a year ago. This news is a bit of a surprise considering he was able to practice with the team last November despite spending the entire season on the reserve/NFI list. Beckwith still being out suggests he suffered some kind of setback. The Bucs added Deone Bucannon after losing Kwon Alexander in free agency, but they still have big questions at linebacker.3 days
32.Corey Clement: On track for Week 1 (RotoWire) Clement (knee) isn't sure when he will be cleared for practice, but he doesn't have any concern about his Week 1 availability, Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic Philadelphia reports. "I'm back at it," Clement said Monday. "It wasn't an ACL. None of that. I'm hitting the ground running. You can expect Corey to be out there Game 1." Analysis: Clement still hasn't provided specifics on the season-ending knee injury he suffered Week 14, but he at least seemed to clarify that it wasn't a major ligament tear. He also mentioned wanting to play at around 210 pounds, believing a lighter frame (he's listed at 220) can help him become a more versatile player... (More)3 days
33.Alterraun Verner retiring after eight se... (Rotoworld) Former Titans CB Alterraun Verner is retiring after eight seasons in the NFL. Analysis: Verner will sign a one-day contract to retire as a Titan on Wednesday. A fourth-round pick by Tennessee in 2010, Verner was able to turn a couple of Pro-Bowl caliber seasons during his rookie deal into a big contract from the Bucs, but he struggled to live up to his salary in Tampa. After one season with the Dolphins, Verner spent 2018 out of the league. He retires with 15 career interceptions in 125 games.3 days
34.Albert Wilson (hip) still not 100 percen... (Rotoworld) Albert Wilson (hip) remained sidelined at the start of the Dolphins' offseason program. Analysis: Wilson landed on injured reserve with a hip injury last October. The injury did not require surgery and his recovery has been setback-free, but Wilson is not quite ready to go. Perhaps that changes before OTAs open next month, but at worst Wilson should be ready for training camp. Fellow WR Jakeem Grant (lower leg) also remains out.3 days
35.Reshad Jones skips voluntary workouts (Rotoworld) Dolphins S Reshad Jones (shoulder) is skipping voluntary workouts. Analysis: Jones was reportedly present when the Dolphins started their offseason program a couple of weeks ago, but coach Brian Flores said he is skipping this session. "He made a decision to train somewhere else," Flores said. "He and I have obviously communicated about it." The new coach said the absence did not have anything to do with trade rumors, but it is tough to believe Jones' roster status played zero part in the decision. The Dolphins can save $5.025 million against the cap by trading Jones. It would als... (More)3 days
36.Free agent DE Brent Urban visiting Titan... (Rotoworld) Free agent DE Brent Urban is visiting the Titans on Tuesday. Analysis: It looks like Urban will be yet another defection from a Ravens defense which is looking at a transformed front seven. A quality run defender when healthy, Urban would be a good addition for the Titans.3 days
37.Travis Benjamin: Signs one-year extension (RotoWire) Benjamin and the Chargers have agreed to a one-year extension through 2020, with the wideout receiving a signing bonus in exchange for reducing his 2019 base salary, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Coming off a 2018 campaign with just 12 receptions, seven carries and five punt returns in 12 games, Benjamin was scheduled for a non-guaranteed $5.25 million base salary and a $6.5 million cap hit in 2019. The new deal secures his roster spot for the upcoming season, and the departure of Tyrell Williams (Raiders) leaves Benjamin as the favorite for the No. 3 job at wide receiver. There is some potential for Dylan Cantrell, Geremy Davis or Artav... (More)3 days
38.Russell Wilson: Lands record-setting extension (RotoWire) Wilson reached agreement Tuesday with the Seahawks on a four-year, $140 million contract extension, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Though Wilson set a deadline of midnight Monday for reaching a new extension, the two sides were willing to negotiate until the early hours of Tuesday and ultimately consummated a record-setting deal. Wilson's contract is worth an average of $35 million from 2020 through 2023, including a league-record $65 million signing bonus. The 30-year-old's deal also includes a no-trade clause, likely ensuring that he finishes out his prime years in Seattle.3 days
39.Grady Jarrett a no-show for offseason wo... (Rotoworld) Franchise-tagged DT Grady Jarrett did not report for the first day of the Falcons' offseason program. Analysis: Julio Jones is also sitting out the voluntary workout program. Hit with the franchise tag in March, Jarrett is almost certainly skipping the workouts in protest of his contract situation. The two sides have until July 15 to work out a long-term deal. If they cannot, Jarrett's one-year tender will be worth $15.2 million.3 days
40.Hunter Henry (knee) 'pretty much full-go... (Rotoworld) Hunter Henry (knee) said he is "pretty much full-go." Analysis: Henry is almost a year removed from tearing his ACL and was able to play 14 snaps in the Chargers' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots back in January. "Everything feels good," Henry said. "It's been a long process. This thing is crazy how long it takes. I'm just excited to get back out with the guys and get going." Henry is returning to a more crowded situation at tight end than when he suffered his injury, but he has an argument to be the fourth tight end off the board in fantasy drafts.3 days
41.Packers do not see WR as a primary need (Rotoworld) ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers do not view receiver as one of their "top four needs from this draft." Analysis: Green Bay did lose Randall Cobb in free agency, but they brought back Geronimo Allison and, most importantly, selected three receivers in last year's draft. While Marquez Valdes-Scantling had the best year of that bunch Equanimeous St. Brown also showed some flashes, and it remains too early to give up on fourth-rounder J'Mon Moore. Perhaps the Packers add another receiver later in the draft, but it would not be a surprise if the top of their depth chart remained unchang... (More)3 days
42.Quinnen Williams visiting Jets on Tuesday (FantasyPros) Former Alabama DT Quinnen Williams will meet with the Jets on Tuesday. Analysis: The Jets pick third overall in this year's draft and need help on the defensive line. Williams is one of the most talented players in the 2019 draft class and could be an instant contributor for Gang Green.3 days
43.Travis Frederick participating in workou... (Rotoworld) Cowboys C Travis Frederick (Guillain-Barre Syndrome) is participating in offseason workouts.3 days
44.Falcons add OT John Wetzel on 1-year dea... (Rotoworld) Falcons signed OT John Wetzel to a one-year contract. Analysis: Wetzel spent his last three season with the Cardinals, making 24 mostly below-par starts. He is just a depth addition.3 days
45.Travis Benjamin agrees to one-year extension with Chargers (FantasyPros) The Chargers and Travis Benjamin have agreed to a one-year extension through 2020. Analysis: Benjamin's deal includes a $5.5 million signing bonus while also reducing his 2019 salary from $5.25 million to just $1 million. The extension not only means that Benjamin's roster spot for 2019 is secure, but also gives the Chargers some salary cap relief for this upcoming season. With Tyrell Williams now with the Raiders, Benjamin should be the primary deep threat for the Chargers in 2019, making him worthy of a late-round pick in fantasy drafts.3 days
46.Travis Benjamin lands one-year extension (Rotoworld) Chargers signed Travis Benjamin to a one-year extension through 2020. Analysis: The new deal gives Benjamin a $5.5 million signing bonus in exchange for a $4.25 million reduction in his 2019 base salary, saving the Chargers $2.75 million in cap space. Benjamin caught just 12 passes in as many games as the No. 4 receiver last season, but he should play a bigger role moving forward following Tyrell Williams' offseason defection.3 days
47.Report: Haskins not 1st-rounder to some ... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Adam Schefter has "spoken to teams who don't have a first-round grade on" Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins. Analysis: Speaking to SiriusXMFantasy, Schefter predicted Haskins will be picked in the "10-17" range. A narrative has emerged suggesting Haskins' early first-round value is a media creation and teams are lower on the quarterback than the pundits. NBC Sports' Peter King even speculated Haskins could "be the fourth passer picked in this draft." Even if all of that is true, it would be a shock if the quarterback fell past the Giants at No. 17.3 days
48.NFL to announce 2019 schedule Wednesday ... (Rotoworld) NFL will announce the 2019 schedule on Wednesday night at 8 ET. Analysis: Teams already know who they will play this season, but when and where will be announced on Wednesday night. The Kickoff Game has already been announced and will feature the Packers traveling to Chicago to honor both the Bears' and NFL's centennial season.3 days
49.Standoff over: Wilson signs 4-yr, $140M ... (Rotoworld) Seahawks signed Russell Wilson to a four-year, $140 million extension through 2023. Analysis: The deal includes a massive $65 million signing bonus with $107 million in total guarantees, and the new money makes him the highest-paid player in the NFL. The relatively short extension only runs through Wilson's age-34 season, so it is likely he will get another shot at a big deal. On the other hand, Wilson was not able to get his salary tied to the cap, a precedent he was reportedly hoping to set, but $140 million is a nice consolation prize. With this deal in place, the persistent trade rumors will fin... (More)3 days
50.Russell Wilson, Seahawks strike $140 million extension (FantasyPros) ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson have agreed to terms on a four-year deal worth $140 million that includes a $65 million signing bonus late Monday night. Analysis: Just ahead of Wilson's implied deadline, the Seahawks awarded their star quarterback with a lucrative four-year extension that will make him the NFL's highest-paid player. With his new deal, Wilson is tied to the Seahawks until 2023. While there were trade rumors looming to send Wilson packing, the Seahawks proved that they are committed to their quarterback, who has led Seattle to a pair of Super Bowls earlier in his carer, winnin... (More)3 days
51.Dynasty | Delanie Walker not ready (Dynasty League Football) Delanie Walker said he remains without a timetable for return as he continues recovering from an ankle injury suffered in week one. Analysis: Anyone who recalls the injury, recalls it was of the gruesome variety. Walker will turn 35 shortly before kickoff of the 2019 season and it's uncertain if he'll be hampered by the ankle, though all signs point to the Titans simply taking it slow with the veteran. Even before his 2018 campaign ended, his numbers had been showing signs of a downward trend and he only tallied three touchdowns in 2017, less tha... (More)3 days
52.Seahawks re-sign nine exclusive rights F... (Rotoworld) Seahawks re-signed RB J.D. McKissic to a one-year, $720,000 contract. Analysis: McKissic is one of nine exclusive rights free agents to sign his deal with the Seahawks on Monday, joining LB Austin Calitro, LB Emmanuel Ellerbee, C Joey Hunt, DE Branden Jackson, S Shalom Luani, LS Tyler Ott, CB Kalan Reed, and OG Jordan Simmons. McKissic is long on talent but can never stay healthy.3 days
53.Seahawks OT Fant signs his RFA tender (Rotoworld) Seahawks re-signed OT George Fant to a one-year, $3.095 million contract. Analysis: Fant was a restricted free agent and inked his tender on Monday when the Seahawks reported for offseason workouts. Fant is Seattle's swing tackle behind LT Duane Brown and RT Germain Ifedi. Fant was very solid across 385 snaps in 2018.3 days
54.Blake Countess: Signs RFA tender (RotoWire) Countess (foot) signed his restricted free agent tender with the Rams on Monday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Countess played through a foot injury during the Super Bowl in February, but appears fully healthy to begin the Rams' offseason program. The fourth-year pro projects to play his usual special-teams oriented role for 2019, in addition to providing depth at the safety position.3 days
55.Greg Mabin: Signs tender (RotoWire) Jones officially signed his one-year tender offer with the 49ers on Monday. Analysis: Mabin elected to sign his exclusive-rights free agent tender, which values his contract at $645,000 for 2019. Across 13 games (one start) for the 49ers last season, Mabin notched 11 tackles and one forced fumble.3 days
56.Grady Jarrett: Absent for voluntary workout (RotoWire) Jarrett was not in attendance for the start of voluntary team workouts Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Analysis: Atlanta elected to apply a $15.2 million franchise tag to Jarrett earlier this offseason, but there remains optimism that the two sides can agree on a long-term extension prior to the July 15 deadline. Falcons owner Arthur Blank has stated that it is the team's intention for Jarrett to remain in Atlanta for the entirety of his professional playing career, but a high bar has been set for the terms of a new contract given that Cowboys defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence inked a five-year, $105 mi... (More)3 days
57.Dominique Hatfield: Signs tender (RotoWire) Hatfield signed his exclusive-rights free agent tender with the Rams on Monday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Hatfield played 10 games with the Rams last season, recording one tackle and 204 snaps on special teams. An ankle injury caused Hatfield to miss the final three games of 2018, though he appears to be healthy to begin the Rams' offseason program.3 days
58.Morgan Fox: Sticking with Rams (RotoWire) Fox (knee) signed his exclusive-rights free agent tender with the Rams on Monday, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports. Analysis: Fox spent the 2018 season sidelined due to an ACL tear sustained during OTAs last offseason, and will work towards achieving full health heading into the Rams' current offseason program. The 24-year-old projects to suit up as a rotational defensive end when healthy.3 days
59.Justin Hamilton: Signs ERFA tender (RotoWire) Hamilton signed his tender with the Chiefs on Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports. Analysis: Hamilton did not record a defensive statistic across four games with the Chiefs last season. The 25-year-old will hope to stick on the back end of the 53-man roster as a depth piece on the defensive line.3 days
60.Jordan Lucas: Sticking with Chiefs (RotoWire) Lucas signed his restricted free agent tender Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports. Analysis: Lucas will receive just over $2 million for 2019 and have the chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The 25-year-old safety accumulated 32 tackles, one sack and one interception across 16 games with the Chiefs in 2018.3 days
61.Harrison Butker: Remaining with Chiefs (RotoWire) The Chiefs signed Butker, an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports. Analysis: Butker has benefited from the high-flying Kansas City offense in his first two pro seasons, ranking fourth with 142 points in 2017 and third with 137 last year. He's also exhibited accuracy, with an 89.9 percent success rate on field goals and 95.9 percent on point-after tries. Because Patrick Mahomes is under center and the skill positions are loaded with talent, Butker shouldn't have a problem upholding his standard in the fall.3 days
62.Ka'imi Fairbairn: Re-ups with Texans (RotoWire) The Texans signed Fairbairn, a restricted free agent, on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: After the Texans extended a second-round tender to Fairbairn in early March, a return to Houston was all but guaranteed considering the price tag attached to him. In his second pro season in 2018, he led the NFL in both field-goal attempts (42) and field goals made (37) en route to 150 points. This latter number likely will go down if the Texans find the end zone more often this fall, but he should still be among the top kicking options for fantasy purposes.3 days
63.Brennan Scarlett: Signs tender (RotoWire) Scarlett signed his one-year tender with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: Despite missing the last five games of the 2018 season due to an ankle injury, Scarlett managed to notch a decent 18 tackles (12 solo), one forced fumble and one interception. Now back for a fourth season in Houston, Scarlett projects to again provide depth at linebacker and contribute on special teams.3 days
64.Brandon Dunn: Staying in Houston (RotoWire) Dunn signed his one-year tender with the Texans on Monday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports. Analysis: The deal Dunn elected to sign is worth just over $2 million. Dunn started at nose tackle for the Texans in 2018, accumulating 24 tackles (13 solo) and one forced fumble across 14 games. He appears on track for a similar role during the 2019 season.3 days
65.Marcell Ateman: Sticking with Oakland (RotoWire) The Raiders signed Ateman, an exclusive rights free agent, on Monday. Analysis: Ateman has been nudged down the depth chart throughout the offseason due to the trade for Antonio Brown and signings of Tyrell Williams, J.J. Nelson and Ryan Grant (toe). Still, Ateman may get in the act as an X receiver in 2019, considering GM Mike Mayock called him the projected starter at the spot before all the additions. In a seven-game cameo to conclude last season, Ateman hauled in 15 of his 31 targets for 154 yards and one touchdown.3 days
66.Cedric Thornton: Steps out of retirement (RotoWire) Thornton was reinstated to the 49ers active roster Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: After announcing his retirement last August, Thornton now rejoins the NFL on the first day of the 49ers offseason program. The 30-year-old has spent time with the Eagles, Cowboys and Bills across seven seasons, and has appeared in 89 career games with 48 starts, 278 tackles and 7.5 sacks. He projects to compete for a depth role along the defensive line this offseason.3 days
67.Todd Gurley: Still in recovery mode (RotoWire) Gurley said Monday that his left knee is "feeling pretty good," and he's "taking it [his recovery] day by day," Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Gurley's comments come on the heels of those made on The Rich Eisen Show by coach Sean McVay, who called the running back "the focal point" of the Rams offense. Notably, Gurley was more or less a spectator during the NFC Championship Game and Super Bowl LIII, earning 16 combined touches in those contests. As the offseason has worn on, McVay claimed responsibility for not getting Gurley more involved in those contests, but Jeff Howe of The Athletic later reported Gurley may be dealing with art... (More)3 days
68.Chris Odom: Rejoins Falcons after AAF stint (RotoWire) Odom signed a contract with the Falcons on Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Odom briefly spent time on the Falcons' practice squad after going undrafted out of Arkansas State in 2017, but did not make the team's 53-man roster. He then signed with Green Bay, notching six tackles (three solo) across seven games in 2017. Odom most recently appeared in eight games for the Salt Lake Stallions in the AAF, recording 10 tackles and 2.5 sacks, and will now compete for a depth role in Atlanta.3 days
69.Niners DT Cedric Thornton nixes retireme... (Rotoworld) 49ers DT Cedric Thornton was moved to the active roster Monday. Analysis: Thornton sporadically announced his short-lived retirement back in August. He also spent time with the Eagles, Cowboys, and Bills prior to landing with the Niners last year. Previously categorized as a five-tech run stopper, it's a true question mark whether Thornton can make an impact after sitting out for the entirety of the 2018 season.3 days
70.Green Bay signs ex-Seahawks K Sam Ficken (Rotoworld) Packers signed K Sam Ficken, formerly of the Seahawks. Analysis: Waived by Seattle prior to the weekend, Green Bay claimed the former Penn State UDFA off waivers. The team also has Mason Crosby currently under contract.3 days
71.Quinton Jefferson: Signs RFA tender (RotoWire) Jefferson signed his restricted free agent tender Monday, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. Analysis: Jefferson signed a deal valued at just over $2 million for 2019. The 25-year-old appeared in 16 games (12 starts) with Seattle last season, notching 25 tackles (15 solo) and three sacks, both career highs. He likely enters the 2019 season slated for a starting role.3 days
72.Anthony Harris: Signs tender (RotoWire) Harris officially signed his one-year tender offer with the Vikings on Monday. Analysis: Harris elected to sign a second-round tender designation worth approximately $3.1 million for 2019, and will have a chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The 27-year-old projects to start at safety for the Vikings next season opposite Harrison Smith.3 days
73.Vikes will try Jordan Taylor on punt ret... (Rotoworld) St. Paul Pioneer Press's Chris Tomasson reports the Vikings will try WR Jordan Taylor at punt returns. Analysis: The idea is to have Taylor replace CB Marcus Sherels, who signed with the Saints in free agency after averaging an optimal 12 yards per return last season. Taylor most recently averaged 9.4 yards on 11 returns for Denver in 2017. The newly-signed 27-year-old has an outside chance of winning slot duties over incumbent starter Laquon Treadwell if he can stay healthy, too.3 days
74.Hayden Hurst: Expects more in second season (RotoWire) Hurst admits he wasn't thrilled with his rookie season, Ben Breiner of The State reports. "For me, I think it was just average," Hurst said. "I give myself a C. I think I'm capable of a lot more. But the foot thing kind of held me back." Analysis: The first-round pick missed all of September while recovering from a stress fracture in his foot, then spent the rest of the year playing second fiddle to fellow rookie Mark Andrews (a third-round selection) in the Baltimore passing attack. Hurst said he's back to full strength after getting a screw removed from his foot this offseason, but he'll face tough competition for snaps from Andrews and Nick Bo... (More)3 days
75.Falcons add to D-line depth with AAF DE ... (Rotoworld) Falcons signed DE Chris Odom, formerly of the AAF's Salt Lake Stallions. Analysis: Odom had a cup of coffee with the Falcons in 2017 but was claimed by the Packers when Atlanta attempted to move him to their practice squad. He eventually failed to crack Green Bay's linebacker rotation. He faces an uphill battle to make the team's 53-man roster out of camp.3 days
76.Marcus Mariota: Adds weight to stay healthy (RotoWire) Mariota put on five to 10 pounds during the offseason, Turron Davenport of ESPN.com reports. "I'm a little bit heavier," Mariota said Monday. "When it comes down to it, being able to absorb the hits and be healthy for a full year, those things haven't happened yet." Analysis: Mariota has missed at least one game in each of his four NFL seasons and is coming off a 2018 campaign marred by injuries to his neck, right elbow, right shoulder, back, oblique, rib and foot. He played 14 games (13 starts) en route to finishing the year with career highs for rushing yards (357) and completion percentage (68.9), but his injuries forced the Titans into an ube... (More)3 days
77.Philip Rivers: Vacationing with family (RotoWire) Rivers (ankle) is missing the start of the Chargers' voluntary offseason program to take an Easter vacation with his family, Eric D. Williams of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: The reasoning behind his absence should quiet any rumors about Rivers playing hardball to create leverage for an extension. He's entering the final season of a four-year, $83.5 million contract, and GM Tom Telesco has already made it clear the Chargers want to discuss a new deal. Rivers skipped the Pro Bowl with an ankle injury, but there hasn't been any suggestion it's a serious issue that will impact his preparation for the upcoming season. The 37-year-old quarterback should... (More)3 days
78.McVay: Goal is to have Kupp ready for We... (Rotoworld) Rams coach Sean McVay said the goal for Cooper Kupp is to have him ready for Week 1. Analysis: Kupp has been setback-free in his rehab from ACL surgery thus far and is currently considered questionable for training camp. If the goal is to have him ready to play in Week 1, though, it's likely the team holds him out for their four preseason contests against the Raiders, Cowboys, Broncos, and Texans. Jared Goff stands to benefit the most with Kupp back as he averaged a breezy 329.6 yards and 2.1 touchdowns in eight games with his stud slot wideout on the field compared to 256.3 and 1.8 in the eight out... (More)3 days
79.Niners K Robbie Gould skips offseason pr... (Rotoworld) 49ers K Robbie Gould was absent from the first day of the offseason program. Analysis: Gould has remained steadfast in the fact he doesn't want to sign and play on San Francisco's designated one-year franchise tender. There's also indications he isn’t interested in signing a long-term deal with the team before the July 15 deadline. The Niners have reportedly considered rescinding Gould’s franchise tag, as evidenced by bringing in Pats K Stephen Gostkowski before he re-signed with New England. As it stands, 26-year-old backup kicker Jonathan Brown will handle those duties at the team's offseason pro... (More)3 days
80.Eli Harold: Could undergo position change (RotoWire) General Manager Brandon Beane said Monday that the team sees Harold as a defensive end in a 4-3 set, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: Harold signed with Buffalo in the offseason after he spent the past four seasons with Detroit and San Francisco, primarily playing at linebacker. The 24-year-old set a career mark in sacks last season with four, so he'd certainly be capable of handling an edge rush role. He's listed at just 243 pounds, so some bulk this offseason could certainly help the Virginia product if he wants to establish himself at the defensive end position.3 days
81.Vikes S Anthony Harris signs 2nd-round t... (Rotoworld) Vikings signed S Anthony Harris to a one-year, $3.095 million contract. Analysis: A restricted free agent, Harris was assigned a second-round tender in March. Only 28, it was doubtful Minnesota would be willing to let Harris walk following S Andrew Sendejo's surprising release. Harris is currently expected to start ahead of former AAF standout Derron Smith.3 days
82.Delanie Walker: Not sure about timeline (RotoWire) Walker (ankle) said Monday that he doesn't have a timeline for a return to full health, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Recovering from a Week 1 fracture and dislocation of his right ankle, Walker hadn't resumed running as of early January, but he said in March that he was hoping to run and catch passes at OTAs in May. Although he still has time to meet his goal, Monday's comment suggests training camp may be the more realistic target for a return to practice. Walker will turn 35 in August and has two seasons remaining on his contract with the Titans.3 days
83.Travis Kelce: Done with walking boot (RotoWire) Kelce (ankle) no longer needs a walking boot and has resumed working out, but he isn't sure when he'll be ready for football activities, James Palmer of NFL Network reports. Analysis: Kelce had surgery to address a lingering ankle injury after the Chiefs were eliminated from the playoffs. While the procedure reportedly wasn't too serious, the rehab process may keep him off the field through OTAs and June minicamp. There hasn't been any suggestion that the 29-year-old tight end is in danger of missing the start of training camp in late July.3 days
84.Carson Wentz: Still recovering from fracture (RotoWire) Wentz (back) is still working his way back to health and hopes to be ready for OTAs in May, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Analysis: Wentz avoided surgery after missing the final five games (including playoffs) of the 2018 campaign, but it's nonetheless been a slow process to recover from a stress fracture in his back. He's present Monday for the start of the Eagles' voluntary offseason program, with his rehab presumably allowing for some degree of strength and conditioning work. The 26-year-old quarterback is entering the fourth and final season of his rookie contract, though it's only a matter of time before the Eagles exerci... (More)3 days
85.Quinton Jefferson signs RFA tender (Rotoworld) Seahawks re-signed DL Quinton Jefferson to a one-year, $2.025 million contract. Analysis: Jefferson was a restricted free agent. He made the first 12 starts of his career last season, logging three sacks and a pair of pass deflections. He is capable of playing most anywhere along the defensive line.3 days
86.Jason Kelce played through many 2018 inj... (Rotoworld) Eagles C Jason Kelce said he played through a sprained MCL, broken foot and "torn elbow" in 2018. Analysis: 3 days
87.Carson Wentz (back) not yet fully healed (Rotoworld) Speaking Monday, Carson Wentz (back) said he was not yet fully healed. Analysis: "It’s still getting there," Wentz said. He is not participating in voluntary workouts but hopes to be ready for OTAs. It is a bit surprising that Wentz has yet to be cleared, but there is zero indication the issue will linger into training camp.3 days
88.Sam Beal: Gains medical clearence (RotoWire) Head coach Pat Shurmur said Monday that Beal has fully recovered from shoulder surgery and will good to go for offseason training, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports. Analysis: Beal was forced to miss all of 2018 after he underwent surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder. The Giants will almost get another rookie, as the 22-year-old will head into next season without NFL game experience. Beal will likely start out as a depth cornerback next season.3 days
89.Jonathan Jones: Signs tender (RotoWire) Jones officially signed his one-year tender offer with the Patriots on Monday, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Jones signed under the second-round tender designation, which values his contract at $3.095 million for next season. The Auburn product was outstanding last season for the Patriots, collecting 56 tackles (44 solo), one sack and three interceptions in 16 games. Jones has proven to be durable, as he has never miss a game in his three-year career.3 days
90.Travis Kelce (ankle) not cleared for pra... (Rotoworld) Travis Kelce (ankle surgery) has yet to be cleared for practice. Analysis: Kelce has shed his walking boot but is "still mostly rehabbing and getting treatment." He said he was unsure of his timetable for full clearance. His operation was billed as a simple clean-up procedure. With over three full months to go, we would assume Kelce is full-go for training camp.3 days
91.Marquise Brown meets with Ravens (FantasyPros) Former Oklahoma wide receiver Marquise Brown met with the Baltimore Ravens on Monday. Analysis: Brown is one of the fastest receivers in this year's draft class, and showed off his explosive playmaking catching passes from Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray over the last two seasons. His talent is undeniable, but his small size and off-season Lisfranc surgery are certainly pre-draft concerns. The Ravens pick 22nd in the first round and are desperate for help at receiver after losing John Brown and Michael Crabtree. As of now, Baltimore's top receiving option is Willie Snead.3 days
92.Mariota adds 5-10 pounds of 'good weight... (Rotoworld) Marcus Mariota said he has added 5-10 pounds of "good weight" in an effort to be more durable. Analysis: Headed into the final year of his rookie deal, 25-year-old Mariota has yet to have a season where he did not miss time with injury. The Titans finally got serious about their backup situation this offseason, acquiring Ryan Tannehill. We would not expect the weight gain to have an effect one way or the other on Mariota's fantasy viability.3 days
93.Delanie Walker without timetable for ret... (Rotoworld) Speaking Monday, Delanie Walker (ankle) said he remains without a timetable for a return to "full health." Analysis: Walker said in February that he hoped to be cleared for offseason workouts, but that did not happen. Training camp is likely the goal. Going on 35, Walker has been sidelined since last Week 1. Although he figures to be brought along as slowly as possible, Walker should be ready for the opener after 12 months of rehab.3 days
94.Manning expects Giants to draft quarterb... (Rotoworld) Eli Manning expects the Giants to draft a quarterback. Analysis: "I figure the Giants are gonna get a young quarterback, I understand that," Manning said. "My job, as I see it, is to go out there and play quarterback and win football games." Illuminating, as ever. It is noteworthy that even Manning acknowledges the reality that the Giants themselves have been loath to publicly admit. The team is hosting Ohio State's Dwayne Haskins on Monday, and was reportedly out in "full force" at his Pro Day. 38-year-old Manning will be one of the league's worst Week 1 quarterbacks th... (More)3 days
95.Report: Today 'real deadline' in Wilson ... (Rotoworld) NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Monday is the "firm, real deadline" Russell Wilson's extension talks. Analysis: Per Rapsheet, Wilson's agent has been "in the building" the past three days to try to get a deal done. Whether or not Wilson truly intends for today to be the deadline, the Seahawks could still come back with an offer he could not refuse before Week 1, but it is clear Wilson is playing legitimate hard ball. NBC's Peter King has reported Wilson wants his future salaries tied to the salary cap. This could get ugly. Wilson's ultimate problem is that he could simply be franc... (More)4 days
96.Michael Bennett: Skipping voluntary program (RotoWire) Bennett wasn't spotted at the Patriots' voluntary offseason training program Monday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: His absence shouldn't be a surprise, Yates points out, as Bennett takes residences in Hawaii in the offseason. Bennett was traded from the Eagles on March 14, after he recorded 34 tackles (25 solo) and nine sacks last season. The 33-year-old will presumably join the team at some point in the offseason, and is projected to seal a starting spot on the Patriots' defensive line.4 days
97.Jalen Mills: Arrested over the weekend (RotoWire) Mills (foot) was arrested Saturday morning after a fight at a Washington D.C. nightclub, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Analysis: This doesn't sound like anything that would warrant a lengthy suspension, but it's a safe bet the NFL investigates the incident after Mills and Washington Wizards forward Devin Robinson both were arrested and charged with disorderly affray. The 25-year-old cornerback is hoping to bounce back from a season-ending foot injury in time for the start of training camp, now facing tough competition for snaps at a position group that also includes Ronald Darby (knee), Avonte Maddox, Cre'von LeBlanc, Sidney Jon... (More)4 days
98.CB Jonathan Jones signs RFA tender (Rotoworld) Patriots signed CB Jonathan Jones to a one-year, $3.095 million contract. Analysis: A restricted free agent, Jones was given a second-round tender in March. Jones played 515 snaps on defense last season and is a quality special teamer.4 days
99.Yannick Ngakoue: Spotted at offseason workouts (RotoWire) Ngakoue was present Monday for the Jaguars' offseason training program, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: This news comes as a surprise, as Ngakoue is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Last season, the Maryland product racked up 28 tackles (25 solo) and nine sacks. The 24-year-old could be in line for a big contract, as he currently sits third in Jaguars' franchise history in sacks with 29. Ngakoue could still elect to sit out mini-camp and/or training camp if he's serious about playing next season on a new deal.4 days
100.Nate Sudfeld: Signs RFA tender (RotoWire) Sudfeld signed his restricted free agent tender Monday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Analysis: Sudfeld will receive approximately $3.1 million for 2019 and then have the chance to become an unrestricted free agent next offseason. The Eagles' decision to use a second-round tender instead of an original-round tender suggests they view Sudfeld as the unquestioned replacement for Nick Foles in the No. 2 quarterback role.4 days
