1.Dynasty | Jeremy Maclin retires (Dynasty League Football) Former Eagles, Chiefs and Ravens wide receiver Jeremy Maclin has announced his retirement. Analysis: Maclin hasn't played since 2017, but was hoping to find a team to latch on to this season after battling hamstring injuries for most of last year. No teams stepped up to sign him, so he decided to officially call it a career today at his wife's baby shower. Maclin ends his career with 514 catches, 6,835 receiving yards and 49 touchdowns. Maclin was best served as a WR2 in dynasty leagues throughout his prime, though his 85/1,318/10 season in 2014 m... (More)8 hours
2.Dynasty | Rob Gronkowski retires (Dynasty League Football) Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has announced his retirement. Analysis: Over his nine-year career in New England, Gronkowski posted 521 catches, 7,861 receiving yards and scored a total of 79 touchdowns. His 2011 season is still the stuff of dynasty league legend when he recorded 90 catches for 1,327 yards and scored an obscene 17 touchdowns. Gronkowski will go down in the books with the likes of Tony Gonzalez, Shannon Sharpe, and Antonio Gates as one of the best tight ends of all time. The Future Hall of Famer was a dynasty pillar throughout his illustrio... (More)8 hours
3.Fins DE Robert Quinn visiting Saints Mon... (Rotoworld) The Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill Jr. reports Dolphins DE Robert Quinn will visit the Saints Monday. Analysis: Quinn's sweepstakes appears dwindled down to Dallas and New Orleans. The Dolphins end visited the Cowboys on Tuesday but departed without a hard deal. If Miami is still willing to eat some of the $11.8 million remaining on the final year of Quinn's contract this upcoming season, it wouldn't be shocking to see the soon-to-be 29-year-old leave The Big Easy as a part of the black and gold. The Cowboys also remain in talks to add him as pass-rushing help behind DeMarcus Lawrence.11 hours
4.Colt McCoy undergoes second surgery on l... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Tarik El-Bashir reports Redskins QB Colt McCoy had surgery on his right leg. Analysis: McCoy was shown on crutches at an IndyCar event in Austin Sunday morning, leading to speculation about the injury. El-Bashier writes the procedure was considered "preventative maintenance" and the Skins' signal-caller is expected to be ready when Washington begins offseason activities. That seems promising, but it's still in the range of outcomes that a 32-year-old (33 in September) struggles to heal following his second leg surgery since December. Case Keenum would walk into a starting ro... (More)11 hours
5.Jeremy Maclin: Calling it a career (RotoWire) Maclin announced Sunday that he is retiring from the NFL. Analysis: Maclin was forced to sit out the entire 2018 season following surgery on his hamstring, and now, the former Pro Bowl wide receiver will officially call it a career. After posting back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons in 2014 and 2015, Maclin was never the same, and injuries played a big role in his decline. Nevertheless, the wideout still finished with 514 catches for 6,835 yards and 49 touchdowns in his eight-year career.12 hours
6.Rob Gronkowski: Announces retirement from NFL (RotoWire) Gronkowski announced Sunday that he will retire from the NFL. Analysis: Gronkowski has not been shy about hinting at his retirement recently, and following yet another Super Bowl win, the all-time great tight end will officially call it a career. Gronkowski will finish his NFL career with 521 receptions for 7,861 yards and 79 touchdowns, and he leaves the Patriots with a massive hole at tight end moving forward. Chances are New England is strong in its pursuit for a tight end this offseason, starting with the 2019 NFL Draft.13 hours
7.Joe Flacco: May face rookie competition (RotoWire) Despite trading for Flacco, the Broncos are set to hold workouts with each of the draft's presumptive top four quarterbacks, Nick Jhabvala of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Jhabvala also reported that general manager John Elway joked a bit about perceptions that he's enamored with Missouri's Drew Lock and indicated that trading back from No. 10 might be difficult with a perceived weak quarterback class. Certainly, there are some mixed signals here. If nothing else, it indicates that -- despite Elway's comments that Flacco is entering his prime -- the team is going to exercise due diligence while it's picking in the top 10 for what Elway must hop...

8.Jeremy Maclin retires after nine seasons (Rotoworld) Ex-Eagles and Chiefs WR Jeremy Maclin has announced his retirement after nine seasons. Analysis: The No. 19 overall pick of the 2009 draft, Maclin had a forgettable year with the Ravens in 2017 before failing to catch on anywhere last season. A big-play threat, Maclin briefly operated as one of the league's best all-around wideouts, parlaying an 85/1,318/10 2014 under Chip Kelly into a big deal with the Chiefs. Long slowed by injury, however, Maclin's career quickly went downhill before he found himself out of the league at only age 30.14 hours
9.Rob Gronkowski announces he's retiring (FantasyPros) Rob Gronkowski announced on Instragram Sunday that he is retiring. Analysis: This doesn't come as a huge surprise as Gronkowski has been considering retirement since last off-season. Despite hanging up his cleats before his 30th birthday, Gronk will still go down as the best tight-end of all time, or at least the most dominant. The 2010 second-round draft pick finishes his career with 521 catches, 7861 receiving yards, and 79 receiving touchdowns in 115 games. Had he stayed healthy this whole time there's seemingly no limit to the types of eye-popping numbers he could've put up. Gronk was also a part of multiple championship teams in the la...

10.Rob Gronkowski announces retirement on I... (Rotoworld) Rob Gronkowski announced his retirement.14 hours
11.Rob Gronkowski calls it a career (FFToday) I will be retiring from the game of football today. I am so grateful for the opportunity that Mr. Kraft and Coach Belichick gave to me when drafting my silliness in 2010. Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward. Analysis: After suffering numerous injuries during the course of his nine-year career, looked noticeably slower in 2018 on his way to a 47-682-3 line. He'll go down as one of the greats at the position scoring double digit touchdowns in five separate seasons. The Patriots were reportedly interested in free agent but it appears h... (More)14 hours
12.Colt McCoy spotted on crutches on televi... (Rotoworld) Redskins QB Colt McCoy was shown on crutches during an appearance on NBC Sports. Analysis: No context was given. McCoy was spotted at the Longhorns' practice facility merely two weeks ago and there had been no word to that point of any offseason surgery or mishap. The longstanding Skins play-caller was the odds-on favorite to get the nod under center heading into offseason workouts and, as it stands, is one of only two available quarterbacks on the roster. This could also explain why the team shipped a sixth-rounder to the Broncos for veteran Case Keenum a few weeks back. Coach Jay Gruden is expected... (More)15 hours
13.Roethlisberger, PIT contract talks 'ongo... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports Steelers GM Kevin Colbert said contract talks with Ben Roethlisberger are "still ongoing." Analysis: "This is probably [Roethlisberger's] last contract as an NFL player, so it's significant," Colbert said. Roethlisberger's agent, Ryan Tollner, initially met with the Steelers front office to discuss the framework of the deal at the Scouting Combine in early March. It's believed to keep the 37-year-old in black and yellow through 2022, ultimately tacking on three years to his current deal that ends after the 2019 season. Though the 14-year vet... (More)15 hours
14.Colt McCoy: Still laboring with crutches (RotoWire) McCoy (leg) was spotted with a cast and crutches Sunday, Jim Vertuno of The Associated Press reports. Analysis: McCoy broke his leg in Week 13 versus the Eagles and missed the remainder of the season. He was seen without the help of crutches or a cast in February, so he was assumed healthy. However, he was the grand marshal for a race in Austin, Texas this weekend, where he was seen sporting crutches again. It appears this is a hiccup in McCoy's recovery, so a quick recovery would benefit the 32-year-old, who will be competing with Case Keenum for the starting quarterback role throughout the offseason program and training camp.18 hours
15.Dynasty | Hunter Henry on track for OTAs (Dynasty League Football) According to GM Tom Telesco, Hunter Henry should be ready for the start of OTAs Analysis: It's good news for Henry who suffered an ACL injury before 2018 kicked off but returned for he playoffs, if only for limited snaps. Entering his fourth season, Henry was expected to be the lead tight end for the Chargers as the aging (soon to be 39) Antonio Gates took a back seat to the up-and-comer. Gates is said to be considering a return for 2019 but a health Henry would be certain to be the TE1 within the offense. In 2017 playing clearly behind Gates, Henry ... (More)18 hours
16.Bryce Callahan: Still nursing injury (RotoWire) Head coach Vic Fangio said Sunday that Callahan (foot) is unlikely to suit up for bonus minicamp, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Analysis: Callahan came over from Chicago, where he played for Fangio while he was the defensive coordinator there. The Rice product had been nursing a broken bone in his foot that required surgery Dec. 12. This news is somewhat concerning for his recovery, considering the minicamp won't start for three more weeks. The 27-year-old was solid last season for Chicago, racking up 45 tackles (39 soloo) and two sacks in just 13 games.19 hours
17.Phillip Lindsay: Expected to sit out minicamp (RotoWire) Coach Vic Fangio said Lindsay (wrist) is unlikely to participate in the beginning of OTAs, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports. Analysis: The Broncos have a bonus minicamp the week after the 2019 NFL Draft, and Lindsay will likely be watching from the sidelines. It's unclear if Lindsay will be able to participate in any part of the offseason program, but there doesn't seem to be concern about his availability for training camp. This injury shouldn't affect his fantasy stock anyway considering his condition is a wrist issue instead of a lower-body problem.19 hours
18.Phillip Lindsay (wrist) to miss start of... (Rotoworld) Broncos coach Vic Fangio confirmed Phillip Lindsay (wrist) won't be ready for the start of OTAs. Analysis: Bryce Callahan (foot) will also be a spectator at what the Broncos call bonus minicamp, which is held leading up to the draft in late April. Lindsay is making progress in his recovery from wrist surgery, but probably won't see much if any work during OTAs. The goal is for Lindsay, who topped 1,000 yards rushing as an undrafted rookie last season, to be up and running by the time training camp opens this summer.20 hours
19.Patriots made a play for Jared Cook (Rotoworld) According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots "aggressively courted" Jared Cook before he signed with New Orleans. Analysis: It's another miss for the Patriots, who also struck out in their pursuit of slot receiver Adam Humphries, now a Tennessee Titan. Per Reiss, Cook felt he had a clearer path to playing time in New Orleans, which suggests the Patriots expect Rob Gronkowski back in 2019. While Gronk's future remains somewhat uncertain—the tight end hasn't shied away from retirement talk—the 29-year-old has reportedly been a regular at the Patriots' facility this offseason, unlike last ye...

20.Jets still open to trading third overall... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Rich Cimini believes the Jets will be "all ears" if a quarterback-needy team calls about the No. 3 pick in April's draft. Analysis: New York addressed its quarterback need by nabbing Sam Darnold in last year's draft and though Gang Green could be tempted to add a defensive piece like Kentucky's Josh Allen or Alabama DT Quinnen Williams with the third overall pick next month, it sounds like the Jets are open for business. The Jets hold just two of the first 68 picks in April's draft and still have holes to fill at center, cornerback and outside linebacker. Cimini said his "gut" tells him the Jets would probably trade t... (More)22 hours
21.Jets expected to shop Darron Lee at draf... (Rotoworld) ESPN Jets reporter Rich Cimini's "sense" is New York will shop ILB Darron Lee during next month's draft. Analysis: Despite showing signs of improvement last year, Lee hasn't delivered on his first-round promise and appears to be on the outs in East Rutherford. The Jets don't have much use for Lee after paying up for C.J. Mosley in free agency and should be motivated to move him before the regular season starts. It would be a stunner if the Jets picked up Lee's fifth-year option for 2020, which would have to be exercised by May 3.23 hours
22.Jameis Winston plans to play at 250 poun... (Rotoworld) Jameis Winston hopes to play at 250 pounds this season. Analysis: That's 19 pounds heavier than his listed weight of 231. Winston's physique has been a recurring topic throughout his career. The former Heisman Trophy winner has previously made efforts to slim down but this year he's putting an emphasis on muscle to improve his durability. "I’m going to play bigger this year," said Winston in an interview at coach Bruce Arians' charity golf tournament in Arizona. "A solid 250. It’s just about hydration and being at the peak body, too." Heading into the final year of his current... (More)23 hours
23.Clay Harbor looking for NFL opportunitie... (Rotoworld) Former TE Clay Harbor is attempting an NFL comeback. Analysis: Harbor, who spent last year out of the league while appearing as a contest on The Bachelorette, is giving himself a three-month window to get back in shape in hopes of earning a tryout this summer. He's been training in Chicago with former Northwestern quarterback Clayton Thorson. Harbor drew interest from Buffalo last offseason but suffered an abdominal injury while working out for them. The 2010 fourth-rounder has amassed 114 catches for 1,170 yards and eight touchdowns over 95 career appearances for the Eagles, Jaguars, Lions and Patriots.1 day
24.Cowboys land S George Iloka as secondary... (Rotoworld) Cowboys signed S George Iloka, formerly of the Vikings, to a one-year contract. Analysis: Obviously in the market for another safety, Dallas finally landed help in their secondary after failing to lock up both Eric Berry and Clayton Geathers in their previous meetings. Iloka will immediately get a shot at starting with only Xavier Woods and Jeff Heath currently manning those positions. Iloka was in on 116 snaps for Minnesota last season.1 day
25.Neiko Thorpe: Re-ups with Seahawks (RotoWire) Thorpe re-signed with the Seahawks on Saturday, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. Analysis: That's now seven cornerbacks on the Seahawks' roster entering the 2019 season. Thorpe was a special teams dynamo last season, acting as the team's co-captain while recording seven tackles across 266 snaps.1 day
26.Malcolm Mitchell: Officially announces retirement (RotoWire) Mitchell officially announced his retirement at a University of Georgia event on Friday, Doug Kyed of NESN.com reports. Analysis: Mitchell wasn't able to play in a NFL game since his heroics during Super Bowl LI, as knee injuries effectively ended his career. The 2016 fourth-round pick will be fondly remembered by Patriots fans after tallying six catches for 70 yards in the aforementioned come-from-behind Super Bowl win, capping off a rookie season in which he caught 32 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns.1 day
27.FA CB Neiko Thorpe re-signs with Seahawk... (Rotoworld) Seahawks re-signed CB Neiko Thorpe. Analysis: Thorpe served as a special teams co-captain for Seattle last season. He logged 29 snaps in coverage in 2018 but won't be used in that role unless injuries force him into the Hawks' lineup.1 day
28.Kraft issues statement on legal situatio... (Rotoworld) Patriots owner Robert Kraft issued a statement in response to charges against him in the Florida prostitution case. Analysis: The full statement can be viewed in the link. Kraft doesn't admit to anything, but this comes one day after prosecutors denied his legal team's request to stop the alleged video from going public. The league has stayed quiet on the Kraft situation, but there's still a lot of fallout to come from this. As we've seen with ex-Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, SpaGate has potential to get messy for both Kraft and the NFL.1 day
29.Malcolm Mitchell retires from NFL (Rotoworld) Free agent WR Malcolm Mitchell has retired. Analysis: There had been rumblings Mitchell was considering retirement after 10 knee surgeries. Mitchell made an impact as a 2016 rookie, catching 32 passes for 401 yards and four touchdowns in 14 games and playing a major role in New England's Super Bowl comeback. He hadn't seen the field since, and was released from the Patriots last year. Mitchell is a published author and looks to have a bright post-NFL career.1 day
30.Hunter Henry (knee) on track for OTAs (Rotoworld) Hunter Henry (knee) is expected to be ready for OTAs. Analysis: This wasn't in doubt after Henry returned for the Divisional Round. It confirms Henry hasn't had any setbacks and will get in a full offseason. Coming off a lost year, Henry is a post-hype sleeper in an offense that has room for targets after moving on from Tyrell Williams.1 day
31.Anderson doesn't expect to be back with ... (Rotoworld) Free agent C.J. Anderson doesn't expect to re-sign with the Rams. Analysis: Anderson proved he had something left in an unexpected stretch run with Todd Gurley injured, but the Rams matching Detroit's offer sheet for Malcolm Brown likely rules out him returning. His conditioning remained an issue despite his late year success. There's been no interest in Anderson to this point, but he showed enough to resurface.1 day
32.Eagles RG Brandon Brooks out of walking ... (Rotoworld) Eagles RG Brandon Brooks (Achilles) has shed his walking boot. Analysis: Brooks is two months into a 6-8 month timetable after tearing his Achilles in the Divisional Round. He'll miss all of OTAs and is a candidate to open training camp on the active/PUP list. Brooks remains questionable for Week 1.1 day
33.Chris Gragg works out for 49ers (Rotoworld) Free agent TE Chris Gragg worked out for the 49ers. Analysis: Gragg missed all of 2016 with a torn ACL and was out of the league last year. He had just 24 career catches in four seasons with Buffalo, but Gragg's never lacked for upside. Gragg would be just an end-of-roster flyer.1 day
34.Rashaan Melvin signs one-year deal with ... (Rotoworld) Lions signed CB Rashaan Melvin to a one-year, $3.5 million contract. Analysis: An outside corner with size, Melvin was miscast in Oakland's Cover-2 last year. He made just seven starts and wasn't effective for the 59 percent of snaps he was on the field. Melvin is a better fit in Detroit's multiple scheme — he played under Matt Patricia with the Patriots in 2015. With Nevin Lawson gone, this gives the Lions a veteran fallback on opposite Darius Slay.2 days
35.Texans sign ex-Panthers LT Matt Kalil (Rotoworld) Texans signed LT Matt Kalil to a one-year contract.2 days
36.Free agent Al Woods visits with Lions (Rotoworld) Free agent Al Woods visited the Lions. Analysis: Woods had a scaled back role last year after being a 16-game starter for the Colts in 2017. He graded above average as a run stopper at PFF over 375 snaps. The Lions are expected to keep the same scheme under new DC Paul Pasqualoni, but a nose tackle like Woods would allow them to stay multiple.2 days
37.Mike Glennon: Signed by Oakland (RotoWire) Glennon was signed by the Raiders on Friday. Analysis: The Raiders have targeted a 29-year-old veteran with starting experience in Glennon to serve as Derek Carr's backup, though Nathan Peterman also plans to fight for a roster spot throughout the offseason. Glennon completed 15 of 21 passes for 174 yards and a score in two games with the Cardinals last season, but his overall resume as a pro includes 22 career starts as well.2 days
38.Maurice Alexander: Headed to Buffalo (RotoWire) Alexander signed a one-year, $1.375 million contract with the Bills on Friday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Alexander played 131 snaps on special teams for the Seahawks last season, but didn't see the field on defense in nine games. He'll provide depth at safety in Buffalo behind the starting duo of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer.2 days
39.Kerry Wynn: Signs with Cincy (RotoWire) Wynn signed a one-year contract with the Bengals on Friday, Jordan Raanan of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Wynn collected just 4.5 sacks in five seasons with the Giants, but he was a valuable contributor on special teams and will provide the Bengals with some depth and versatility along the defensive line as well.2 days
40.Kemoko Turay: Figures to come off bench (RotoWire) Turay will likely come off the bench at defensive end following the Colts' signing of edge rusher Justin Houston, Joel Erickson of IndyStar.com reports. Analysis: Turay racked up four sacks and 15 tackles in 385 defensive snaps as a rookie in 2018, but Houston figures to replace Turay in the starting lineup across from Jabaal Sheard. Turay played less than 25 snaps in each of his last seven contests, however, so his role was already somewhat diminished near the end of the 2018 campaign.2 days
41.Tyquan Lewis: May shift to DT (RotoWire) Lewis (knee) may shift over to play the 3-technique defensive tackle position following the Colts' signing of edge rusher Justin Houston, Joel Erickson of IndyStar.com reports. Analysis: Lewis was originally expected to serve in a 3-technique role as a rookie before the Colts were forced to keep him on the end due to depth concerns. With Houston now in the mix along the defensive line, Lewis can join a DT corps that includes Margus Hunt and Denico Autry.2 days
42.Tyler Shatley has visit with Vikings (Rotoworld) Free agent OL Tyler Shatley visited the Vikings. Analysis: He left without a deal. Shatley made semi-regular starts for Jacksonville the last three seasons and can play every spot on the interior line. Even after signing Josh Kline, the Vikings could use depth on their offensive line.2 days
43.Ricardo Louis: Misses all of 2018 (RotoWire) Louis (neck) spent the entire 2018 season on injured reserve, Nick Shook of the Browns' official website reports. Analysis: Louis had neck surgery last summer and was never expected to play in 2018. It isn't clear if the 2016 fourth-round pick will be able to resume his football career, as the Browns haven't provided an update on his progress. If he does end up playing, Louis will face tough competition for a roster spot on a team that now has Odell Beckham, Jarvis Landry, Antonio Callaway and Rashard Higgins atop the depth chart at wide receiver.2 days
44.Mike Glennon signs with Raiders (Rotoworld) Raiders signed QB Mike Glennon. Analysis: Glennon spent last year behind Josh Rosen after Sam Bradford's release. He's replacing A.J. McCarron in Oakland. Glennon has size and starting experience, but he's a middling backup.2 days
45.Bengals strike deal with ex-Giant Kerry ... (Rotoworld) Bengals signed DE Kerry Wynn, formerly of the Giants, to a one-year contract. Analysis: The Giants were interested in bringing him back, but ultimately he opted for a fresh start in Cincinnati. Wynn collected 39 tackles, two forced fumbles, and 1.5 sacks over 393 defensive snaps last year while also contributing on special teams. The versatile 28-year-old can line up anywhere on the defensive line.2 days
46.Bills bring in S Maurice Alexander (Rotoworld) Bills signed S Maurice Alexander, formerly of the Seahawks, to a one-year, $1.375 million contract. Analysis: The Bills will be his third team in as many seasons. Alexander has made 23 starts at safety in his career but is most known for his special teams contributions. That should be the case again in Buffalo.2 days
47.Quinton Spain meets with Bills (Rotoworld) Free agent OG Quinton Spain visited the Bills.2 days
48.Allen Hurns: Not assured of role (RotoWire) Hurns (ankle) may be left without a role after the Cowboys signed slot receiver Randall Cobb to a one-year, $5 million contract, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports. Analysis: The reported value of Cobb's contract is equal to the amount of cap space the Cowboys can free up if Hurns is released before Week 1. Coming off a disappointing Dallas debut that ended with a dislocated ankle in the playoffs, Hurns may need to accept a pay cut to make it to the second season of his two-year contract. The 27-year-old currently projects as the team's No. 4 wide receiver, with Cobb handling the slot while Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup take mo... (More)2 days
49.Colts host ex-Bronco Shane Ray (Rotoworld) Free agent OLB Shane Ray visited the Colts on Friday. Analysis: The Colts already addressed their pass-rushing need by adding Justin Houston, but apparently they're not finished. Ray showed flashes during his time in Denver, though he never lived up to his first-round billing. Still, the Mizzou alum does have an eight-sack season on his resume and could benefit from a change of scenery.2 days
50.Aldrick Robinson: Still available in free agency (RotoWire) Robinson remains unsigned as an unrestricted free agent, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Robinson is actually one of the better wide receivers left in a thin market, coming off a 2018 campaign with 17 catches for 231 yards and five touchdowns on 35 targets in 14 games for the Vikings. He's typically struggled when tasked with a large workload, but his career stat line -- 16.5 yards per catch, 14 TDs among 86 receptions -- suggests he can give an offense a boost as a big-play weapon from the No. 4 receiver role. Granted, the 30-year-old doesn't offer much value on special teams, and his career catch rate (47.8 perce... (More)2 days
51.Report: Julio to become highest-paid wid... (Rotoworld) According to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, the Falcons are "closing in" on a contract extension with Julio Jones. Analysis: Julio will reportedly net $20 million annually on what is expected to be a four-or-five-year deal, making him the league's highest-paid receiver on a per year basis. Per Freeman, the contract will also include $50-60 million in new guarantees. Jones expressed frustration with his contract last year, avoiding team activities until training camp, when the two sides finally agreed to a restructure. The 30-year-old Alabama product easily led the league in receiving yard... (More)2 days
52.Buffalo takes flyer on TE Jake Fisher (Rotoworld) Bills signed TE Jake Fisher, formerly of the Bengals, to a one-year contract. Analysis: Fisher also worked out for Houston and Washington before committing to the Bills. The 2015 second-rounder spent the first four years of his career at tackle but will pivot to tight end in Buffalo. After throwing in the towel on underachiever Charles Clay, Bills have filled their tight end void by adding both Fisher and his former Bengals teammate, Tyler Kroft, this offseason.2 days
53.McShay: Drew Lock could go in top-10 pic... (Rotoworld) ESPN's Todd McShay reports Missouri QB Drew Lock could go in the top-10 picks. Analysis: Lock improved his stock at his Pro Day, showcasing arm strength and his ability to make difficult throws. He has visits with the Giants, Lions, and Broncos — all teams that pick in the top-10. There's time for things to change, but Lock has moved ahead of Daniel Jones as the consensus third-ranked quarterback behind Kyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins. Lock is one of the bigger risers leading up to the draft. 2 days
54.Adam Jones accepts plea deal following a... (Rotoworld) Free agent CB Adam Jones has accepted a plea deal following his arrest at an Indiana casino last month. Analysis: Jones allegedly threatened to kill an Indiana Gaming Commission Enforcement agent after he was accused of adding chips to a winning bet during a casino visit on February 27. Prior to his plea deal, the former sixth overall pick faced charges of attempted theft, battery against a public safety official, cheating at gambling, disorderly conduct, intimidation, public intoxication and two counts of resisting law enforcement. Pacman played sparingly (37 snaps in seven games) during a three-mon... (More)2 days
55.'Most believe' Jets will draft OLB Josh ... (Rotoworld) According to ESPN's Rich Cimini, "most believe" the Jets will select Kentucky OLB Josh Allen with the third overall pick in April's draft. Analysis: That's assuming New York keeps the pick instead of trading back, which remains a possibility (a quarterback-needy team like Denver or Miami could look to move into the top-three). Despite tapping Gregg Williams (who comes from a 4-3 background) as D coordinator, the Jets are expected to stand pat with the 3-4 scheme they used under Todd Bowles. A native of nearby Montclair, New Jersey, the 21-year-old makes a ton of sense for the Jets, who ranked near the bottom of the league in most defe... (More)2 days
56.Anthony Sherman: Staying in KC (RotoWire) Sherman is signing a one-year contract to stay with the Chiefs, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Sherman has played seven consecutive 16-game seasons as the top fullback in Kansas City, but his workload bottomed out at 98 offensive snaps in 2018. He did catch eight of nine targets for 96 yards and a touchdown, while his 345 snaps on special teams ranked second on the Chiefs.2 days
57.Samaje Perine: Facing tough roster odds (RotoWire) Perine is stuck in a crowded backfield with Adrian Peterson, Derrius Guice (knee) and Chris Thompson, Kyle Stackpole of the Redskins' official website reports. Analysis: Guice's tricky rehab from a torn ACL and subsequent infection is the complicating factor, potentially opening a door for Perine, Byron Marshall or Russell Hansbrough to earn a role. Even so, it's hard to see how Perine fits the plan in Washington, considering he logged just 30 snaps on offense and 39 on special teams in 2018. The 2017 fourth-round pick will have a tough time earning a spot on the 53-man roster unless he establishes value as a blocker and coverage man on special t... (More)2 days
58.Chiefs keep FB Sherman with one-year dea... (Rotoworld) Chiefs re-signed FB Anthony Sherman to a one-year contract. Analysis: Sherman is one of the best fullbacks in the league. Only a handful of teams still use one. Sherman also is a fixture on special teams for Kansas City.2 days
59.Curtis Riley: Signs one-year deal with Oakland (RotoWire) Riley is signing a one-year contract with the Raiders, Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. Analysis: Riley went undrafted in 2015 and barely played until 2018, but he emerged as a 16-game starter for the Giants last season, piling up 75 tackles (63 solo), five passes defensed and four interceptions (including one for a TD). He was far less reliable than the stat line suggests, as Pro Football Focus charged him with the most missed tackles (23) of any defensive back in the NFL. The Raiders signed fellow safety Lamarcus Joyner to a much larger contract earlier this offseason, but it won't come as any surprise if he takes most o... (More)2 days
60.Glazer: Tyreek came up in trade talks ea... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Jay Glazer reports there "were some rumblings" earlier in the offseason about Tyreek Hill's name coming up in trade conversations. Analysis: Glazer reports it likely had more to do with Hill's contract status as he enters the final year of his rookie deal. This was all before Hill's name came up in a report that he's being investigated for alleged battery against his three-year-old son who was left with a broken arm. That situation has been quiet for the past seven days. Hill would now seem tough to trade amid this off-field drama. We doubt the Chiefs really even wanted ... (More)2 days
61.Lions re-signed G/T Andrew Donnal (Rotoworld) Lions re-signed G/T Andrew Donnal. Analysis: A former fifth-round pick of the Rams in 2015, Donnal didn't play a single offensive snap for the Lions last year after previously being claimed off waivers. They apparently like him enough to bring Donnal back to compete for a job.2 days
62.Samson Ebukam: Recovering from knee surgery (RotoWire) Ebukam is recovering from a minor knee surgery and likely will be brought along slowly this spring, Gary Klein of The Los Angeles Times reports. Analysis: The 2017 fourth-round pick started 14 of 16 games at outside linebacker in his second pro season, notching 40 tackles (25 solo), three sacks, three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. It sounds like Ebukam will be healthy before the start of training camp, but he may face some competition for a starting job after the Rams signed Clay Matthews to a two-year, $9.25 million contract. It's also possible the Rams use Matthews and Ebukam as their starting OLBs, with Dante Fowle... (More)2 days
63.C.J. Anderson: Expects to find new team (RotoWire) Anderson suggested Friday on Twitter that he doesn't expect to re-sign with the Rams. Analysis: While it isn't clear the two events are related, Anderson's tweet was posted about an hour after Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the Rams will match Detroit's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet for running back Malcolm Brown, who missed Weeks 14-17 and all of the playoffs after he suffered a broken clavicle in early December. His injury opened the door for the Rams to sign Anderson, who then took over the starting gig when Todd Gurley (knee) suffered an injury of his own. Anderson's strong performance in December theoretically boosted his value, ... (More)2 days
64.Raiders add former Giants S Curtis Riley (Rotoworld) Raiders signed S Curtis Riley, formerly of the Giants. Analysis: Riley started all 16 games for the G-Men last year, playing the fourth-most snaps among all safeties in the league. He picked off four passes but also received dreadful marks from Pro Football Focus, finishing as their No. 85 safety out of 89 qualifiers. He was particularly poor against the run. With Lamarcus Joyner expected to be the Raiders' primary nickel corner, Riley may play significant snaps on the back end next to Karl Joseph.2 days
65.Browns sign OG Bryan Witzmann (Rotoworld) Browns signed OG Bryan Witzmann, formerly of the Bears. Analysis: Witzmann started seven games at right guard in place of an injured Kyle Long with the Bears last season and was an obvious weak link there. Prior to that, Witzmann was the Chiefs' left guard in 2017. He amassed poor marks from Pro Football Focus in Kansas City as well. Witzmann, 29 in June, will compete for a reserve job.2 days
66.Justin Houston: Ready to play defensive end (RotoWire) Houston will play defensive end in a 4-3 scheme under Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus, Joel Erickson and Zak Keefer of The Indianapolis Star reports. Analysis: Houston has spent his entire career playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 defense for Kansas City, piling up 78.5 sacks in 102 games despite handling some coverage responsibilities. He said his job should be easier in a scheme that allows him to attack the quarterback on every pass play, and he already has plenty of experience lining up with his hand on the ground in nickel and dime packages. Coming off a 2018 campaign with nine sacks and five forced fumbles in 12 regular-season ga... (More)2 days
67.Morgan Burnett: Soon to be released (RotoWire) The Steelers informed Burnett he will be released before Apr. 1, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Pittsburgh planned to release the 30-year-old safety this past Wednesday but will wait another week because of an accounting issue. Regardless of when it happens, Burnett figures to have trouble finding a starting job on the open market, as he hasn't played a 16-game season since 2012 and struggled in coverage the past couple years. It wasn't so long ago that Burnett was the top tackle compiler among all defensive backs, averaging 7.6 per game in 60 appearances from 2011 to 2014.2 days
68.Malcolm Brown: Staying in Los Angeles (RotoWire) The Rams are matching Brown's two-year, $3.25 million offer sheet from the Lions, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The decision to use a low tender ultimately worked out in the Rams' favor, as they now have Brown under contract for two years at approximately the same cost as a second-round tender ($3.1 million) for one season. With C.J. Anderson unsigned and the draft still to come, Brown may eventually get some competition for the No. 2 running back spot -- a job that becomes rather interesting with the long-term stability of Todd Gurley's left knee now in question. Meanwhile, the Lions will need to look elsewhere in their search t... (More)2 days
69.Rams OLB Ebukam coming off knee surgery (Rotoworld) Rams OLB Samson Ebukam underwent knee surgery after the season and will be sidelined until training camp. Analysis: Ebukam hasn't missed a game since being a fourth-round pick in 2017. He has just five sacks through two seasons after being drafted as a favorite of DC Wade Phillips. The Rams re-signed OLB Dante Fowler and gave edge rusher Clay Matthews a two-year deal this week. The two of them and Ebukam figure to form the Rams' main trio off the edge this year.2 days
70.Rams match Lions' $3.25M sheet on RB Bro... (Rotoworld) Rams re-signed RB Malcolm Brown to a two-year, $3.25 million contract. Analysis: The Lions signed Brown to the offer sheet earlier in the week, and the Rams chose to match it with Brown being a restricted free agent. Brown has played well in very limited snaps behind Todd Gurley the last two seasons, but he was also running behind one of the league's best run-blocking offensive lines. With Gurley's knee now an issue, perhaps Brown will see more work moving forward. C.J. Anderson is still a free agent, though, and the Rams could bring him back.2 days
71.Steelers releasing S Burnett, saving $5M... (Rotoworld) Steelers released S Morgan Burnett. Analysis: Burnett wanted out of Pittsburgh much earlier in the offseason, and now he will find a limited market with most teams already landing on safeties a couple weeks back. Burnett played out of position in Pittsburgh last year as a dime linebacker. He just turned 30 in January.2 days
72.Jordan Reed working out with teammates (Rotoworld) Jordan Reed (toe) has been working out with teammates this offseason. Analysis: Reed missed the final two weeks on injured reserve. He managed to play in 13 games, but 2018 was another letdown year. Reed should be fully healthy for OTAs.3 days
73.Kerry Wynn visits with Bengals (Rotoworld) Free agent DE Kerry Wynn visited with the Bengals. Analysis: Wynn has spent that last two years as semi-regular starter in New York. He's a situational run stopper that shouldn't get much higher than the veteran minimum. The Giants also have interest in bringing Wynn back.3 days
74.Jake Fisher works out for Buffalo (Rotoworld) Free agent Jake Fisher will work out for the Bills. Analysis: Fisher already had workouts with the Texans and Washington. He's yet to land a deal, but there's enough interest for Fisher to eventually resurface. With Charles Clay gone, the Bills have some open spots at tight end.3 days
75.Stephen Gostkowski: Progressing on new contract (RotoWire) The Patriots and Gostkowski are making progress with negotiations on a new contract, Tom E. Curran of NBC Sports Boston reports. Analysis: Despite finishing in the top 10 in points scored 11 times in his 13 seasons, Gostkowski wasn't extended the franchise tag by the deadline like he was in 2015. The Patriots' decision left him free to explore all options once the new league year started March 13, but it appears as if he'll stick with the only organization he's ever known.3 days
76.Curtis Riley: Visits Bengals Thursday (RotoWire) Riley visited with the Bengals on Thursday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Some teams have shown interest in Riley, though the young safety has been weighing all of his options before deciding on a final free agency destination. He's coming off a 2018 season that saw him record 75 tackles and four interceptions while starting all 16 games for the Giants. If he does sign with the Bengals he'll likely slot in as one of the teams starting safeties.3 days
77.Patriots making progress with Gostkowski (Rotoworld) NBC Sports Boston reports the Patriots have made progress in contract talks with free agent Stephen Gostkowski. Analysis: The Patriots didn't franchise Gostkowski, but re-signing him has always been in their plans. Gostkowski's asking price has been the sticking point. Gostkowski signed a four-year, $17.2 million extension back in 2015 but the Patriots are hoping to bring him back for less.3 days
78.Bryan Cox: Re-signs with Panthers (RotoWire) Cox signed a contract with the Panthers on Thursday. Analysis: Cox has served as a backup defensive lineman for the Panthers through his first-two seasons, totaling 16 tackles and a fumble recovery across 18 games in that span. He'll figure to operate as a depth lineman and special teams player once again in 2019.3 days
79.Marcus Sherels: Signs with Saints (RotoWire) Sherels signed a one-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Analysis: Sherels had spent his entire nine-year career with the Vikings prior to signing with the Saints. A backup for most of his career, he'll figure to provide the Saints secondary depth while also contributing on special teams.3 days
80.Mike Hull: Re-signs with Miami (RotoWire) Hull signed a contract with the Dolphins on Thursday, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports. Analysis: Hull joined the Dolphins as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has been a backup linebacker for the team ever since. He missed the first eight games of 2018 due to a knee injury and was only able to record nine tackles (seven solo) in eight contests once he returned. He'll likely be a depth linebacker and special teams player once again in 2019.3 days
81.Josh Tupou: Signs one-year deal with Bengals (RotoWire) Tupou signed a one-year contract with Cincinnati on Thursday. Analysis: Tupou was tendered by the Bengals earlier in March and his signing was expected. He's coming off an injury shortened season that saw him record nine tackles (six solo) in six games. Healthy once again, he'll look to carve out a larger role for himself in 2019.3 days
82.James O'Shaughnessy: Re-signs with Jaguars (RotoWire) O'shaughnessy signed a contract with Jacksonville on Thursday, John Oehser of the Jaguars' official site reports. Analysis: O'Shaughnessy will be entering his fifth season in 2019 and his third with the Jaguars. He hasn't had much of a roll in the passing game thus far in his career. He recorded 214 yards on 24 catches, both career highs, while playing in 14 games last season. He'll likely operate as a blocker and backup tight end once again in 2019.3 days
83.Dynasty | Jared Cook to sign with New Orleans (Dynasty League Football) Jared Cook is close to signing with the New Orleans Saints. Analysis: The landing spot is certainly a good one on paper as Cook will attempt to fill the shoes left open ever since Jimmy Graham left town so many years ago. The Saints have been able to get by with players like Josh Hill and Ben Watson, but Cook is clearly an upgrade for them, He had a career season with the Raiders last year, posting a 68/896/6 line in the process. While owners shouldn't expect Graham-like production, Cook is a good bet to post back-end TE1 numbers in an offense as explos... (More)3 days
84.Ricky Seals-Jones: Remains with Cardinals (RotoWire) Seals-Jones (neck) officially signed his one-year tender with the Cardinals on Thursday, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: With just two accrued seasons, Seals-Jones was an exclusive rights free agent and didn't have any choice but to re-sign with the Cardinals. So far this offseason, management has exchanged one veteran tight end (Jermaine Gresham) for another (Charles Clay). Clay has a track record as a modest pass-catching option, but Seals-Jones has shown promise in his career, including 11.8 YPC and four touchdowns on his 46 career receptions.3 days
85.Hunter Henry: Slated for rehab-free offseason (RotoWire) General manager Tom Telesco recently said Henry (knee) is on track to be ready for the first day of OTAs, Al Butler of United Press International reports. Analysis: Henry tore his ACL in OTAs last offseason and remarkably made it back to log 14 snaps in the Chargers' lone playoff game this past winter. The tight end admitted he wasn't 100 percent at that point, though, and his lowly playing time clearly reflected that. However, it's still notable that he didn't suffer any significant setbacks, and it appears he'll have a full, rehab-free offseason to prepare for the 2019 campaign.3 days
86.Zach Miller: Remains under Chicago control (RotoWire) Miller is under contract with the Bears on a one-year, $645,000 contract in 2019, Aaron Leming of 247Sports reports. Analysis: There hasn't been news of Miller re-upping with Chicago, but it's possible a clause in the one-year contract the tight end signed last offseason may have kept him under Bears control for another year Recovering from an extremely severe knee injury, Miller still has a long way to go before returning to the football but will seemingly be able to work out at the Bears' facility in the meantime.3 days
87.Jordan Reed: Working out with teammates (RotoWire) Running back Adrian Peterson said Reed (foot) has been working out with him in Houston this offseason, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports. Analysis: This news bodes well for Reed's availability for offseason workouts after he finished last season on injured reserve with a sprained foot. However, it isn't clear if Reed is participating under any limitations, and it's possible the Redskins could keep the oft-injured tight end under bubble wrap this spring and summer regardless.3 days
88.Sherels signs one-year deal with Saints (Rotoworld) Saints signed CB Marcus Sherels to a one-year contract. Analysis: Sherels is a top punt returner, averaging 12.0 yards per return last season. He'll assume that role in New Orleans. Sherels is a solid get for the Saints but isn't going to see many defensive snaps.3 days
89.George Iloka to meet with Cowboys this w... (Rotoworld) Free agent S George Iloka will visit with the Cowboys on Friday. Analysis: Iloka left his Raiders visit without a deal. The Cowboys are one of the most safety needy teams in the league, but Iloka is likely a fallback to free agent Eric Berry. Iloka played just 116 snaps in a rotational role with Minnesota last year.3 days
90.Justin Houston: Signing with Indianapolis (RotoWire) Houston agreed to a two-year, $24 million contract with the Colts on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The Colts haven't made many high-profile free-agent splashes under GM Chris Ballard, but it appears they've reeled in a quality piece to their pass-rush rotation. The 30-year-old Houston has racked up 78.5 sacks in only 102 career games -- including nine sacks in 12 contests last season -- and should team up with 2018 first-team All-Pro linebacker Darius Leonard to form one of the more imposing edge tandems league-wide in Indianapolis.3 days
91.Andrew Turzilli: Playing in CFL (RotoWire) Turzilli signed a contract with the CFL's Tiger-Cats on Thursday. Analysis: Turzilli returns to the Tiger-Cats after being let go by the team last May. The 27-year-old last played in the NFL in 2015 with the Titans and will need to take strides in his development in order to return to the league.3 days
92.Dolphins re-sign LB Mike Hull (Rotoworld) Dolphins re-signed LB Mike Hull to a one-year contract. Analysis: Hull missed the first eight weeks with a sprained MCL last year. He returned for the second half to play 191 snaps on special teams. Hull can also backup at inside linebacker behind Raekwon McMillan. He's been with Miami since 2015.3 days
93.Robert Griffin: Returning to Baltimore (RotoWire) The Ravens re-signed Griffin on Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: After moving on from longtime signal-caller Joe Flacco, Baltimore will keep Griffin around as a veteran sounding board for Lamar Jackson, who officially took the reigns of the offense in Week 11 last season and didn't let go. Griffin himself acted as the active backup for Jackson during the second half of the schedule and made three brief appearances. With the development of Jackson in mind, Griffin will receive spot duty and little else in 2019.3 days
94.O.J. Howard: Runs routes for Mahomes (RotoWire) Howard (ankle) was seen running routes for Patrick Mahomes in Fort Worth, Texas on Thursday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Analysis: Both of Howard's first two seasons as a pro were cut short by injuries to his right ankle and/or foot, limiting him to 24 of a possible 32 appearances. With 16.6 yards per catch, 11.5 yards per target and an 18.3 percent touchdown rate (11 TDs on 60 receptions) in his career, he's been dynamic when on the field and now will be operating under new coach Bruce Arians. Assuming he can stay healthy in 2019, Howard is a breakout candidate by any measure.3 days
95.Rico Gathers gets deferred adjudication (Rotoworld) Cowboys TE Rico Gathers reached a deal on his misdemeanor drug charge. Analysis: Gathers was arrested last September. As part of the deal, Gathers will get 90-days deferred adjudication and pay a $99 fine and court costs. It is a minor legal situation, but Gathers could end up facing a suspension.3 days
96.Justin Houston signs with Colts (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports former Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston is signing with the Colts. Analysis: Adam Schefter of ESPN adds the deal will be for two years and $24 million. Houston was released by the Chiefs earlier this off-season since they could free up $14 million in cap space by doing so. The 30-year-old certainly helps beef up Indy's defense.3 days
97.Colts add pass rusher Houston for 2-yr, ... (Rotoworld) Colts signed EDGE Justin Houston, formerly of the Chiefs, to a two-year, $24 million contract. Analysis: The Colts easily had the most cap space available, and they are using some of it to fill one of their top offseason needs. Houston has struggled a bit with injuries in recent years, but he recorded nine sacks in 719 snaps last year and has 18.5 over the last two years. Even if just in a rotational role, Houston should be a big upgrade to Indy's pass rush.3 days
98.Logan Thomas: Returning to Detroit (RotoWire) Thomas signed a contract with the Lions on Thursday. Analysis: Thomas comes back to the Lions after spending two years with the Bills, who signed the former Virginia Tech quarterback off Detroit's practice squad in November 2016. He presumably will spend this offseason trying to push Michael Roberts for the No. 2 job at tight end behind Jesse James, though it's possible the Lions could add more competition via the upcoming draft that has a strong class at the position.3 days
99.Robert Griffin re-signs with Ravens (FantasyPros) Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports the Ravens are re-signing quarterback Robert Griffin. Analysis: Griffin was reportedly a great influence on Lamar Jackson last year, and he'll continue to serve as a mentor for him in 2019.3 days
100.Justin Hardy: Sticking with Falcons (RotoWire) The Falcons re-signed Hardy on Thursday, Will McFadden of the team's official site reports. Analysis: A four-year veteran, Hardy has played a bit role at receiver for the Falcons, totaling 76 catches (on 118 targets) for 751 yards and nine touchdowns in 41 games. He does hold some sway as a returner, but the signing of Kenjon Barner indicates Hardy will have competition for those spots on the depth chart in 2019.3 days
