1.Raiders do one-year deal with TE Erik Sw... (Rotoworld) Raiders signed TE Erik Swoope, formerly of the Colts, to a one-year contract. Analysis: This is a really interesting addition to a tight-end group that is lacking any sort of big talent. In addition to Swoope, the Raiders employ blockers Derek Carrier and Luke Willson, fourth-round rookie Foster Moreau, and former-wide receiver Darren Waller, who has actually been getting some spring hype. When Waller is getting hype, you know the position has nothing. Swoope was a project for years in Indianapolis before finally showing flashes the last two years, catching 23 balls for 384 yards (16.7 YPR) and f... (More)11 hours
2.Chris Carson: Recovering from knee concern (RotoWire) Coach Pete Carroll said Tuesday that Carson "had a little work done" on his knee, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports. Analysis: Carroll didn't elaborate on the aforementioned "work," but he expects Carson to return to the field in a few weeks. While he focuses on rehab and recovery, his backfield mates will get some high-profile reps during OTAs. Among the most interesting is 2018 first-round pick Rashaad Penny, who managed 494 yards from scrimmage and two TDs on 94 touches working behind Carson and current Bear Mike Davis. Meanwhile, the depth chart is rounded out by J.D. McKissic, C.J. Prosise (abdomen) and 2019 sixth-rounder Tra... (More)12 hours
3.Bobby Wagner: Awaiting extension (RotoWire) Wagner will not participate in OTAs until he receives a contract extension, Liz Matthews of USA Today reports. Analysis: 2019 will be the final year on Wagner's current four-year deal, and the 28-year-old has previously said he's "preparing like this is my last year as a Seahawk." Seattle has cap space after trading Frank Clark -- even after giving a record-breaking deal to quarterback Russell Wilson -- and Wagner hopes to get an extension that beats fellow inside linebacker C.J. Mosley's haul of a five-year, $85 million deal. Wagner has said that he will still be present at Seattle's OTAs and that he will still lead the defense and coach up the ... (More)12 hours
4.Cowboys, Zeke on 'same page' with contra... (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott are "on the same page" in regards to a contract extension that "in all likelihood will make him the highest-paid running back in NFL history." Analysis: The Cowboys and Elliott have already been in negotiations but Zeke's deal may have to be worked out after Dallas comes to terms with Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper since their deals expire after this season. On the field, Elliott has been one of the top backs since entering the league and his upcoming contract extension will reflect that. For reference, Le'Veon Be... (More)12 hours
5.Aaron Rodgers will get creative with off... (Rotoworld) Aaron Rodgers said he'll be able to "put a stamp on" his new offense. Analysis: Rodgers believes he can be more creative in this offense -- that happens when your last coach is Mike McCarthy -- and that he only needs three months to feel comfortable with it. It's still early, but Rodgers is confident in what Matt LaFleur is cooking up and that should result in a better 2019 season, especially if he is healthier this time around.12 hours
6.Carroll: Amara Darboh 'looked great' at ... (Rotoworld) Pete Carroll said WR Amara Darboh "looked great" after the start of OTAs. Analysis: Darboh missed the entire 2018 after being placed on injured reserve with a knee injury, and Carroll now wants Darboh to go compete for a job this offseason. Doug Baldwin's retirement opens up targets, but the Seahawks added three receivers in the draft, minimizing Darboh's chances.13 hours
7.Nick Bosa stops practicing with hammy is... (Rotoworld) Kyle Shanahan was unsure about the severity of Nick Bosa's hamstring injury. Analysis: Bosa pulled up with a hamstring injury during one-on-one drills at OTAs on Tuesday, forcing the No. 2 overall pick to watch the rest of practice on the sidelines before walking inside alone after practice. The injury doesn't appear to be overly serious since Bosa didn't immediately go inside with the training staff, but it's important to remember Bosa's injury history. Bosa needs the reps after missing most of last year's season, but the 49ers also have to be smart with rushing him back.13 hours
8.Solomon Thomas is mentally healthy again (Rotoworld) 49ers DL Solomon Thomas said he is mentally healthy and is more confident in his abilities. Analysis: Solomon said he turned a corner mentally late last season after seeing a therapist, but he's also dropped weight to a more comfortable 270 pounds. The former No. 3 overall pick wants to bring quickness at the three-technique this season, which theoretically could be his last in San Francisco if his production (four sacks in two years) doesn't improve.13 hours
9.Wes Horton: Headed to Big Easy (RotoWire) Horton signed an undisclosed contract with the Saints on Tuesday, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Analysis: The 29-year-old signs from Carolina, where he made 24 tackles (15 solo) and 1.5 sacks in 16 games last season. Horton will add to a ferocious pass rush that already includes Marcus Davenport and Cameron Jordan. To make room for Horton, the team decided to waive Darrell Williams.13 hours
10.Jordan Leggett: Finds new home (RotoWire) Leggett was claimed off waivers by the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Leggett was waived by the Jets on Monday, and quickly found a new team. The 24-year-old had a quiet tenure in New York, making 14 catches for 114 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. If he's able to make the team, Leggett likely won't produce favorable results in the fantasy world.13 hours
11.Mose Frazier: Suffers arm injury (RotoWire) Frazier suffered a broken arm at OTAs on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: This is a tough break for the 25-year-old who saw 33 snaps in the final game of the regular season last year. The team was high on Frazier heading into last season, as he led the team in touchdowns during the preseason. Following the injury, Frazier will undergo surgery to repair the injury, and his timeable for a return is unknown.13 hours
12.JJ Arcega-Whiteside sees reps in the slo... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Mike Kaye notes JJ Arcega-Whiteside received reps in the slot at OTAs. Analysis: Alshon Jeffery was not at practice Tuesday, giving the Eagles an opportunity to get depth options more work. With Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor ahead of him on the depth chart, Arcega-Whiteside is expected to be limited to crumbs as a rookie. However, if he's able to pick up the offense as an outside and slot receiver, he could be an injury or trade away from entering into the start offense.13 hours
13.Eagles OT Vaitai working at guard at OTA... (Rotoworld) NJ.com's Mike Kaye notes Eagles OT Halapoulivaati Vaitai worked at right guard to start OTAs. Analysis: The Eagles spending a first-round pick on tackle Andre Dillard signaled this was inevitable, and it looks like the Eagles will give him a full offseason inside. The swing tackle will be a backup option for Philly when the starting offensive line is healthy.13 hours
14.Fred Warner: Undergoes minor knee procedure (RotoWire) Warner won't participate in OTAs due to a minor knee surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: Warner's injury is likely due to the wear and tear of the season, as there was no news of an injury before the minor knee procedure. The 2018 third-round pick was outstanding in his first NFL season, racking up 124 tackles (85 solo) and one forced fumble. Barring a setback health-wise, the 22-year-old will be a hot commodity in IDP formats heading into next season.13 hours
15.Dynasty | Julian Edelman receives extension (Dynasty League Football) Edelman will receive a two-year, $18M extension with $12M guaranteed making him a Patriot through 2021. Analysis: The imminent future is secure for one of Tom Brady's most trusted receiving weapons. Edelman isn't showing signs of slowing down - finishing 2018 with his 2nd best year on a yards per game basis in a suspension shortened season. Edelman, like most aging players, is getting put out to pasture early. You can net him as a 7th round dynasty startup selection according to DLF May mock drafts, as WR37. Edelman finished 2018 as the WR13 in points per game in PPR leagues. Excellent production and a role t... (More)13 hours
16.Raheem Mostert: Gets re-do of surgery (RotoWire) Mostert had to undergo another procedure to repair his broken forearm and will be out an additional month, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: Mostert has been recovering from season-ending surgery on his broken right forearm since early November, and a second procedure will now delay his return to the practice field. It's unclear exactly when that return will be, but the absence will certainly hurt Mostert's already-slim chances of getting many touches in a crowded San Francisco backfield this season.13 hours
17.Levi Wallace running as starter in OTAs (Rotoworld) Bills CB Levi Wallace has opened the offseason as a starter opposite Tre'Davious White. Analysis: A 2018 UDFA, Wallace showed extremely well down the stretch last season, starting the final seven games opposite White. Veterans Kevin Johnson and E.J. Gaines were added in free agency, but it appears 24-year-old (in June) Wallace will get a legitimate opportunity to hold onto the No. 2 gig.13 hours
18.Delanie Walker estimates he's 85 percent (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, Delanie Walker (ankle) estimated that he is 85 percent healthy. Analysis: Walker has been participating in individual drills but sitting out team exercises. "Really not trying to do anything that’s too physical at the moment," Walker said. Walker has previously hedged on whether he will be full go for the beginning of camp. With a veteran like Walker, the goal is always Week 1, not summer practice. 14 hours
19.Matt Breida: Nursing torn pec (RotoWire) Breida suffered a slightly torn pectoral muscle while lifting weights but is expected to be ready for the start of training camp, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: The injury isn't believed to be too serious, but Breida still will be held out of all workouts until the start of training camp, which when he is expected to be cleared. Breida is expected to have a significant role in the 49ers' backfield this season alongside Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon (knee).14 hours
20.Garrett Celek: Aiming for training camp (RotoWire) Celek (thumb/concussion) will not be cleared to play before training camp, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Analysis: Celek ended the season on the sideline with a concussion and head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed Tuesday that the tight end is still going through the league's concussion protocol. With Celek out for the next couple of months, Levine Toiolo, who the 49ers signed last week, should get some extra reps at tight end during practices.14 hours
21.Report: Joe Douglas still favorite for N... (Rotoworld) The Athletic's Connor Hughes reports Eagles VP of player personnel Joe Douglas remains the Jets' preferred choice for general manager.14 hours
22.Garrett Celek remains in concussion prot... (Rotoworld) 49ers TE Garrett Celek remains in the concussion protocol and will not be cleared until "at least" training camp. Analysis: It's highly concerning news, as Celek suffered the injury in Week 17. The 31-year-old (this month) also suffered a concussion in 2015. He is dealing with a back injury in addition to the head issue.14 hours
23.Delano Hill expected to be ready for cam... (Rotoworld) Seahawks S Delano Hill (hip) is expected to be ready for training camp. Analysis: Hill served as the Seahawks' No. 3 safety following last year's Earl Thomas injury. The 2017 third-round pick would do well to earn a similar role in 2019.14 hours
24.Bradley McDougald (knee) out until camp (Rotoworld) Seahawks SS Bradley McDougald is recovering from knee surgery and will be sidelined until training camp. Analysis: Coach Pete Carroll was otherwise vague on details, such as the nature of the operation and when McDougald went under the knife. Headed into his age-29 campaign, McDougald has been a workhorse, missing zero games since 2014. He played through a knee issue in 2018.14 hours
25.Saints sign longtime Panthers DE Wes Hor... (Rotoworld) Saints signed DE Wes Horton, formerly of the Panthers. Analysis: A longtime role player for New Orleans' NFC South rival, Horton will try to earn a 53-man roster role where he plays 300-400 snaps. Horton has tallied 15.5 sacks since entering the league as a 2013 UDFA.14 hours
26.WR Frazier undergoing surgery for broken... (Rotoworld) Panthers WR Mose Frazier is undergoing surgery to repair a broken arm and will be sidelined 3-4 months. Analysis: Someone on the periphery on the Panthers' 53-man roster over the past two seasons, Frazier has managed two regular season appearances. This makes him a candidate to begin the year on the reserve/PUP list. Depending on the Panthers' need in their receiver corps, he could then either be activated or cut loose in October.14 hours
27.Bobby Wagner present at OTAs, not practi... (Rotoworld) Seahawks MLB Bobby Wagner is attending OTAs but will not practice as he seeks a new contract. Analysis: Wagner is taking the middle ground as he seeks a new deal headed into the final year of his pact. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero has reported Wagner is not amenable to a hometown discount. That is the right approach after linebackers got eye-brow raising money in this year's free agency period. The Seahawks have said they want to get Wagner extended.14 hours
28.Bucs claim TE Jordan Leggett off waivers (Rotoworld) Bucs claimed TE Jordan Leggett off waivers from the Jets. Analysis: The New York Daily News reports five teams put in a claim. Although still a 24-year-old upside prospect, Leggett has landed in the wrong place to reach it. O.J. Howard and Cameron Brate don't have any targets to spare.14 hours
29.49ers LB Fred Warner had knee operation (Rotoworld) 49ers LB Fred Warner is recovering from a clean-up knee operation.14 hours
30.'Chance' Ezekiel Ansah is ready for Week... (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said there was a "chance" Ezekiel Ansah (shoulder) will be ready for Week 1. Analysis: Carroll made the disclosure as he gushed that Ansah was a "big get." About to be on the wrong side of 30, Ansah has had an increasingly difficult time staying healthy and productive. It is beginning to look like any contributions the Seahawks get from him early in the year will be a bonus. In a best-case scenario, Ansah would slide in as Frank Clark's opening-week replacement.15 hours
31.Jarran Reed (sports hernia) out until ca... (Rotoworld) Seahawks DT Jarran Reed (sports-hernia surgery) will not return before training camp. Analysis: It is mildly concerning, as Reed was slapped with a 4-6 week timeline upon going under the knife in late April. Of course, the Seahawks have zero incentive to rush their interior lineman. Reed has appeared in 46 of a possible 48 games as an NFLer, and played through the issue in 2018. He should be fine for camp and Week 1.15 hours
32.Chris Carson recovering from knee operat... (Rotoworld) Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Chris Carson "had a little work done" on his knee but is expected to resume practicing in a few weeks. Analysis: Carroll was otherwise vague on details, like when Carson went under the knife. Carson has a rather lengthy injury history for only being in the league two years, but this is the first time he has been listed with his knee. Carroll seemed confident he would be ready for training camp. It is information to file away as you ponder best-ball fliers on Rashaad Penny.15 hours
33.Peter Schrager assisting in Jets' GM sea... (Rotoworld) The New York Daily News reports NFL Network personality Peter Schrager is assisting in the Jets' search for a new general manager. Analysis: The Jets' GM "search" is beginning to read like mad libs. Schrager is either tight with new coach Adam Gase or someone in Jets upper management. The Jets' process has been lacking since sacking coach Todd Bowles. Gase is a power struggle extraordinaire.15 hours
34.RB Mostert required 're-do' of arm surge... (Rotoworld) 49ers RB Raheem Mostert required a "re-do" of the operation to his broken arm. Analysis: The new operation has apparently added a month to Mostert's recovery from an injury he initially suffered early last November. Mostert just signed a new three-year deal in March, but this complicates his chances of earning work, or even making the team, in the 49ers' log-jammed backfield.15 hours
35.Matt Breida has 'slightly' torn pectoral (Rotoworld) Matt Breida is dealing with a "slightly" torn pectoral, but the 49ers expect him to be ready for training camp. Analysis: In other words, he has a torn pec. Breida avoided surgery but will miss the rest of the offseason program. If you're going to miss practice, now is the time to do it, but it can only be an advantage for the rest of the bodies in the 49ers' extraordinarily crowded backfield.15 hours
36.Gruden wants DE Arden Key to add weight (Rotoworld) Jon Gruden wants DE Arden Key to weigh 260 pounds. Analysis: Key is listed at 238 pounds, so he has a long way to go to reach his potential. With the Raiders lacking proven pass-rushing talent, Key will remain a rotational option even if he's playing undersized. As a rookie in 2018, Key made one sack while making 30 tackles.15 hours
37.Ndamukong Suh: Set to join Tampa Bay (RotoWire) Suh is finalizing a one-year deal with the Buccaneers on Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Just one day after the Buccaneers released nose tackle Gerald McCoy, who was owed $13 million in 2019, the team has found his replacement in Suh. The veteran tackle is coming off a 2018 campaign with the Rams where he recorded 59 tackles (41 solo) and 4.5 sacks while appearing in every game for the team's Super Bowl run. He gives the Bucs an elite, durable pass rusher to help fill the void left by McCoy's release.15 hours
38.Adoree' Jackson: Wearing walking boot (RotoWire) Jackson is not participating in OTAs after undergoing surgery on his foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: With Jackson sporting a walking boot, it will likely be a while before the cornerback returns to the practice field. It's unclear at this time, however, how serious the injury is or what his exact recovery timetable will be.16 hours
39.Kevin King: Back on practice field (RotoWire) King (hamstring) participated in OTAs on Tuesday, Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers' official site reports. Analysis: King did not take part in Green Bay's minicamp a month ago while he continued to work his way back from a hamstring injury. Now, it appears he is approaching full strength, and the Packers will likely continue to ease King back into the swing of things before the start of training camp.16 hours
40.T.Y. Hilton: Full go during OTAs (RotoWire) Hilton (ankle) was a full participate in OTAs on Tuesday, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports. Analysis: As of three weeks ago, it was reported that Hilton was still not 100 percent after playing through ankle sprains for much of last season. But reports out of the first day of OTAs in Indianapolis are implying Hilton is extremely close to full strength. Given these are just voluntary workouts, the Colts likely won't push the star wideout too far, but it bodes well for Hilton's health heading into training camp.16 hours
41.Seahawks sign first-rounder L.J. Collier (Rotoworld) Seahawks signed No. 29 overall pick DE L.J. Collier to a four-year, $10.8 million contract. Analysis: Collier's contract comes with the standard fifth-year team option and includes a $5.9 million signing bonus. At TCU, Collier broke out for 11.5 tackles for loss and six sacks as a fifth-year senior, but Collier busted the Combine with 11th-percentile SPARQ results. Athletic limitations make Collier a risky first-round selection, but he figures to be in the mix for meaningful snaps as a rookie.16 hours
42.Gerald Hodges: Will play again (RotoWire) Hodges, who announced his retirement in April, has decided to play again, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: Hodges announced over a month ago that his seventh NFL season was his last, but time away from the game has apparently caused the linebacker to have a change of heart. With Hodges reportedly already drawing interest from teams, he shouldn't be a free agent for too much longer.16 hours
43.Knee injury slowed DaeSean Hamilton in 2... (Rotoworld) DaeSean Hamilton said a knee injury slowed him down late last season. Analysis: Over the last four games of the season, Hamilton only managed to pick up 7.3 yards per catch, so this injury would explain the complete lack of explosiveness. With the injury behind him and with a full offseason to improve as a pro, Hamilton is a candidate to take a step forward, especially if Emmanuel Sanders' Achilles' injury lingers.16 hours
44.Colts sign second-round WR Parris Campbe... (Rotoworld) Colts signed second-round WR Parris Campbell to a four-year, $4.8 million contract. Analysis: The deal includes a $1.5 million signing bonus and comes with $2.7 million in guarantees. Campbell (6'0/205) is penciled in as the Colts' No. 3 wide receiver behind T.Y. Hilton and Devin Funchess, but he also could be a factor on special teams where he'd show off his 4.31-speed. At Ohio State, Campbell was glued to the line of scrimmage as a gadget-slot and flat-route receiver, so he'll need to expand his route tree to maximize his playmaking potential..16 hours
45.Ndamukong Suh expected to sign one-year deal with Buccaneers (FantasyPros) Ndamukong Suh is expected to sign a one-year deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Analysis: The move coincides with the recent release of longtime Bucs DL Gerald McCoy. Coincidentally, Suh and McCoy were selected No. 2 and No. 3 overall in the 2010 draft class, with Suh winning Defensive Rookie of the Year honors. Suh is still a big presence on the interior line and should fill an immediate need for Tampa Bay. He's racked up five Pro Bowl selections, including three All Pro honors in nine seasons with the Lions, Dolphins, and Rams.16 hours
46.Bucs sign Ndamukong Suh to one-year deal (Rotoworld) Bucs signed Ndamukong Suh to a one-year contract. Analysis: With the Bucs cutting ties with Gerald McCoy, Suh was a logical replacement and it only took one day to get the deal in place. In DC Todd Bowles' scheme, it won't be surprising to see Suh put up solid numbers across the board. However, after staying on the free agent market for months, Suh will once again be playing for a new contract next year as a 33-year old after only getting a one-year deal from Tampa Bay.17 hours
47.Jonnu Smith (knee) sidelined to start OT... (Rotoworld) Jonnu Smith (knee) was sidelined to start OTAs. Analysis: Smith was only able to get in work with the jugs machine, but this is expected after tearing his MCL last season. With no reason to rush back, expect Smith to take it slow this offseason before ramping up his work right before the season.17 hours
48.Adoree' Jackson had offseason surgery (Rotoworld) NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Titans CB Adoree' Jackson had offseason foot or ankle surgery.17 hours
49.O'Brien has 'no idea' about Clowney's st... (Rotoworld) Bill O'Brien said, "I have no idea when [Jadeveon Clowney] is going to be here. It's up to him." Analysis: The Texans are reportedly nowhere close to a long-term agreement with their unsigned franchise player, and Clowney isn't expected to show up to practice anytime soon. With Clowney's injury history, a long-term contract will be tricky to hammer out so a trade can't be ruled out. This story has a chance to linger into training camp and possibly beyond.17 hours
50.Denzel Perryman: Expected back for training camp (RotoWire) Perryman (knee) isn't back to 100 percent yet but hopes to be good to go for training camp, Jeff Miller of the Los Angeles Times reports. Analysis: Perryman suffered an LCL injury that ended his 2018 season and he's still working with the team's medical staff as he aims to get back to full strength. He'll figure to resume his role as the team's starting middle linebacker when he returns to action.17 hours
51.O'Brien seeing 'good progress' with Fore... (Rotoworld) Bill O'Brien sees "good progress" with D'Onta Foreman. Analysis: Foreman reported to team workouts in good shape, and O'Brien says Foreman parlayed that into a "good spring." After struggling to return from an Achilles' tear last season, Foreman appears to have turned a corner in his rehab process. If he can continue to churn strong practices, Foreman should push Lamar Miller for reps in 2019.17 hours
52.T.Y. Hilton was a full participant on Tu... (Rotoworld) T.Y. Hilton (ankle) was a full participant at Tuesday's practice. Analysis: Hilton was expected to be limited during offseason workouts to give his ankle time to breathe, but The Athletic's Stephen Holder reports Hilton's ankle is all good to go. Despite playing through a high-ankle sprain last season, Hilton managed to average 90.7 receiving yards per game.18 hours
53.Gerald Hodges unretires, receiving inter... (Rotoworld) Former Cardinals LB Gerald Hodges unretired and is receiving interest from teams. Analysis: Hodges announced his retirement last month, but he's back at it again. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Hodges is drawing interest from teams already, so all signs point to him competing for a roster spot this summer. The six-year veteran made 55 tackles for the Cardinals last season.18 hours
54.Bills TE Jason Croom leaves practice Tue... (Rotoworld) Jason Croom left Tuesday's practice with the training staff. Analysis: This would be the Bills' second tight end injury of the day with Tyler Kroft breaking his foot earlier. Kroft's expected recovery time is three to four months, so there's room for Lee Smith, Croom, or third-rounder Dawson Knox to step up into a bigger role this preseason. The extent of Croom's injury is unknown, but the stars are aligning for Knox to earn reps as a rookie.18 hours
55.Andrew Luck (calf) to miss practice this... (Rotoworld) Andrew Luck will be re-evaluated for a calf injury next week. Analysis: The Colts say Luck's calf injury is minor, and they are opting to be conservative at this point in the offseason. Luck won't practice this week, but the injury isn't expected to threaten his training camp status. Unless there's a setback, this is a non-issue.18 hours
56.Alex Cappa started at RG for Bucs on Tue... (Rotoworld) Bucs OL Alex Cappa was the first-team right guard at Tuesday's practice. Analysis: The 2018 third-rounder appears to be in contention for the starting job after seeing action down the stretch as a rookie. The starting offensive line at Tuesday's practice going from left to right was Donovan Smith, Ali Marpet, Michael Liedtke (filling in for Ryan Jensen), Cappa, and Demar Dotson.18 hours
57.Alshon Jeffery: Not present to start OTAs (RotoWire) Jeffery (rib) did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Analysis: Whether Jeffery is out due to injury or just simply because these are involuntary practices is unknown, but it is worth noting with the wideout reportedly playing through fractured ribs at the end of last season. There has been nothing, however, to suggest Jeffery is in line for any sort of long-term absence as training camp approaches.18 hours
58.Vernon Hargreaves returns to practice Tu... (Rotoworld) Bucs CB Vernon Hargreaves said he missed last week's practice with lingering injuries. Analysis: Bruce Arians said Hargreaves needed to "get his mind right to practice," so Hargreaves and Arians don't appear to be on the same page. "He didn’t tell me not to practice. That was my decision," Hargreaves disputed. With a new coaching staff in place, Hargreaves can't afford to be miscommunicating after being a huge bust since being the No. 11 pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Hargreaves was at practice on Tuesday, which is at least a step in the right direction.18 hours
59.T.J. Yeldon: Nursing groin injruy (RotoWire) Yeldon did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday due to a groin injury, Matthew Fairburn of The Athletic reports. Analysis: It doesn't look like it's anything serious for Yeldon, who signed a two-year contract with the Bills nearly a month ago. These are voluntary workouts, so there is no reason to rush the 25-year-old into action. He is expected to compete for a role in Buffalo's backfield this offseason with LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore and rookie tailback Devin Singletary.18 hours
60.Deonte Thompson: Signs with Jets (RotoWire) Thompson signed a contract with the Jets on Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports. Analysis: Thompson played in 13 games in 2018 while with the Cowboys and the Bills, totaling 17 receptions for 161 yards on the season. If he makes the Jets' final roster in 2019 it will likely be as a depth receiver and special teams player.18 hours
61.Brate (hip) expects to be ready for camp (Rotoworld) Cameron Brate (hip) expects to be ready for training camp. Analysis: Brate underwent arthroscopic surgery in January. He was reportedly cleared to run routes in April, but he is still not practicing. Brate will fill in behind O.J. Howard once he is healthy.19 hours
62.Raekwon McMillan: Dealing with injury (RotoWire) McMillan has an undisclosed injury that is holding him out of OTA practices, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports. Analysis: McMillan is likely being held out as a precaution. He reportedly is expected to return to practices fairly soon.19 hours
63.Tyler Kroft: Out at least three months (RotoWire) Kroft (foot) will be sidelined for 3-to-4 months following surgery, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The Bills announced Tuesday that Kroft suffered another broken right foot during OTAs on Monday and that the injury requires surgery. With this timetable, Kroft will likely miss all of training camp and potentially the start of the regular season. Additionally, Kroft is now at risk of starting the season on the PUP list, but Buffalo has some time before that decision has to be made. Should Kroft have to miss any time, Lee Smith, who signed a three-year, $9 contract with the Bills just over a week ago would be in line to step in as th... (More)19 hours
64.Josh Jones: Requests trade (RotoWire) Jones is skipping OTAs and requested a trade from the Packers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Analysis: Jones was a second-round pick of the Packers two years ago and has served as a hybrid linebacker and safety. He's gotten a few starts but has played primarily as a backup, tallying 55 tackles (40 solo), including a sack, and two pass deflections while playing in 13 games in 2018. The Packers added Adrian Amos in free agency and selected Darnell Savage in the first round of the draft, pushing Jones further down the depth chart and likely playing a part in Jones' trade request.19 hours
65.Andrew Luck: Sidelined with minor calf strain (RotoWire) Luck did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday due to a calf strain, Stephen Holder of The Athletic reports. Analysis: There appear to be no concerns coming from the Colts regarding their starting quarterback's health, as Luck has felt healthy all offseason, and he said last month it's been the best of his career. Indianapolis is likely just taking extra precautions with Luck this early in the offseason.19 hours
66.Frank Gore: Starts off on wrong foot (RotoWire) Gore will not practice during Tuesday's OTA sessions due to foot/ankle issues, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: When you sign a 36-year-old running back, these are the type of minor injuries that come with the territory, though we imagine a veteran like Gore knows his way around summer work and will have plenty of time to get up to speed as the team's main backup to LeSean McCoy, assuming Gore's issues are minor.19 hours
67.Cole Beasley: Not practicing following surgery (RotoWire) Beasley was not participating in OTAs on Tuesday after undergoing core muscle surgery a few weeks ago, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Analysis: It's unclear exactly what led to the injury and ultimately surgery for Beasley, and it is also unknown how long the wideout will remain on the sidelines. It's all speculation at this point, so consider Beasley day-to-day until the Bills can provide a more concrete update on his timeline.19 hours
68.Sam Beal: Working with starters (RotoWire) Beal opened up OTAs with the starting defense, Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record reports. Analysis: Beal was a third-round pick of the Giants in 2018 but didn't play during his rookie year due to a shoulder injury. Now healthy, he's being given the opportunity to earn a starting slot opposite Janoris Jenkins.19 hours
69.Tyler Kroft: Needs surgery on broken foot (RotoWire) Kroft suffered a broken foot during OTAs on Monday and will require surgery, Sal Capaccio of WGR Sports Radio 550 Buffalo reports. Analysis: It's a tough break for Kroft and the Bills, as the 2015 third-round pick of the Bengals is (or was) expected be the team's top tight end this season after signing a three-year, $18.75 million contract back in March. This will also be the second straight year that Kroft has to undergo foot surgery, as he was placed on injured reserve in November of 2018 after undergoing a season-ending procedure on a fracture right foot. More on Kroft's recovery timetable should be released following surgery.19 hours
70.Chiefs DL Chris Jones skipping OTAs (Rotoworld) Yahoo's Terez A. Paylor reports Chiefs DL Chris Jones is skipping OTAs. Analysis: Considering he also skipped voluntary workouts, this is not a surprise. One of the best interior linemen in the league, Jones is looking for a long-term extension heading into the final year of his deal. After letting Dee Ford go this offseason, the Chiefs need to lock up Jones long term.19 hours
71.Jared Veldheer tells Patriots he is reti... (Rotoworld) Veteran OT Jared Veldheer informed the Patriots he is retiring after nine seasons in the NFL. Analysis: Veldheer just signed a one-year deal with New England earlier this month, but he apparently decided he did not have another season in him. A third-round pick by the Raiders back in 2010, Veldheer parlayed a good start to his career into a big deal with the Cardinals in 2014. Injuries ultimately led to his decline in Arizona, but Veldheer was a quality tackle during his prime.19 hours
72.Marqise Lee: Doing light work during OTAs (RotoWire) Lee (knee) was seen running on the side during OTAs on Tuesday, Phillip Heilman of The Florida Times-Union reports. Analysis: Lee is still making his way back from a torn ACL he suffered during the third week of the preseason last year. Head coach Doug Marrone has said that he expects the wideout to make his full return late in the preseason, so the Jaguars will likely continue to slowly work Lee back into the swing of things over the next few months.19 hours
73.Jets add WR Deonte Thompson (Rotoworld) Jets signed WR Deonte Thompson. Analysis: Thompson spent time with both the Bills and Cowboys last season, amassing 161 yards on 17 catches. The journeyman will compete for one of the final spots on New York's depth chart.20 hours
74.Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey sitting out OTAs (Rotoworld) Jalen Ramsey remained absent at the start of OTAs. Analysis: Ramsey also skipped voluntary workouts. After receiving some criticism from Tom Coughlin for those missed workouts, Ramsey said he will be "ready when it's time." It is unclear if that will be mandatory minicamp or training camp.20 hours
75.Carson Wentz: Full go in OTAs (RotoWire) Head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that Wentz (back) will have "no limitations" placed on him during OTAs, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports. Analysis: Pederson reiterated that Wentz has already done plenty of offseason work and has proven he doesn't need any restrictions during the voluntary workouts. The fact that Wentz is already being described as a full participant in drills this early in the offseason is a great sign for the quarterback's health heading into training camp. He's under team control through 2020 and could receive a contract extension this summer.20 hours
76.Jakeem Grant (Achilles') back on the fie... (Rotoworld) Dolphins WR Jakeem Grant (Achilles') is participating in OTAs. Analysis: Grant missed the start of offseason work recovering from "lower-leg" surgery -- reportedly not a torn Achilles' -- but he is back on the field now. He should be a full-go for training camp as he looks to earn a role behind DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, and Albert Wilson (hip).20 hours
77.Austin Corbett opened OTAs at right guar... (Rotoworld) Brown OL Austin Corbett opened OTAs at right guard. Analysis: That was the expectation after the Browns traded Kevin Zeitler to the Giants. A 2018 second-round pick, Corbett played just 14 snaps on offense as a rookie, but the Browns are relying on him to step up as a sophomore. While the roster looks great overall, the offensive line, especially left tackle and right guard, is an area of concern for the Browns.20 hours
78.Tyler Kroft suffers broken foot on first day of OTAs (FantasyPros) Tyler Kroft suffered a broken foot on the first day of OTAs on Monday. Analysis: It's a tough way to start kick off the season. Kroft will need to undergo surgery and there's currently no timetable for a return. The 26-year-old signed a three-year deal with Buffalo this off-season but his Week 1 availability is now up in the air.20 hours
79.Julian Edelman: Finalizing extension with Pats (RotoWire) Edelman is finalizing a multi-year contract extension with the Patriots, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Analysis: The 2019 Super Bowl MVP was entering the final year of his contract, so an extension was expected to get done at some point this offseason. Due to an ACL tear in 2017 and a four-game suspension to kick off his 2018 campaign, Edelman has not played a full season of football since 2016, but Tom Brady's most reliable wideout will remain alongside him for a 10th season and more with this extension.20 hours
80.Julian Edelman signs two-year extension with Patriots (FantasyPros) Julian Edelman and the Patriots have agreed to terms on a two-year, $18 million extension. Analysis: The deal includes $12 million guaranteed and an $8 million signing bonus. About to turn 33, Edelman was fantastic in his first year back from ACL surgery in 2018. The veteran slot receiver hauled in 74 receptions for 850 yards and six TDs. He then went on to win Super Bowl MVP. It's likely he finishes his career with the Patriots now.20 hours
81.Matt Milano (leg) a full-go for OTAs (Rotoworld) Bills LB Matt Milano (leg) is a full-go for OTAs. Analysis: Milano ended the 2018 season on injured reserve because of a broken fibula. He was arguably the Bills' best defender before the injury. He and 2018 first-rounder Tremaine Edmunds should form a quality linebacker duo moving forward.20 hours
82.Cole Beasley underwent core muscle surge... (Rotoworld) Cole Beasley is recovering from core muscle surgery. Analysis: Beasley is sitting out OTAs, but it is unlikely his recovery lingers into training camp. Signed to a four-year, $29 million contract in March, Beasley will occupy the slot in Buffalo's new-look receiving corps.20 hours
83.Mitch Morse underwent core-muscle surger... (Rotoworld) Bills C Mitch Morse underwent core-muscle surgery. Analysis: Morse is sitting out OTAs because of the issue, but it is unlikely it lingers into training camp. Morse is expected to start at center after signing a four-year, $44.5 million contract in March.20 hours
84.Tyler Kroft breaks foot on first day of OTAs (FFToday) New #Bills TE , and presumed starter, sustained a broken foot on the first day of OTAs and will have surgery to fix it. Analysis: Kroft was penciled in as the starting tight end for the Bills after signing with the club as a free agent this off-season. A 3-4 month recovery time will cause him to miss most of if not all of training camp. He's now a no-touch in fantasy drafts. The Bills are left with and two rookies (, ) atop the TE depth chart.20 hours
85.Bills TE Tyler Kroft suffers broken foot (Rotoworld) Bills TE Tyler Kroft suffered a broken foot on the first day of OTAs. Analysis: Coach Sean McDermott said Kroft will undergo surgery on Tuesday, and there is no timetable for his return, although NFL Network's Ian Rapoport estimates the tight end will miss three to four months. Kroft was expected to start after signing a three-year, $18.75 million contract in March, but now his Week 1 availability is up in the air. Lee Smith, Jason Croom, and third-rounder Dawson Knox are next up on the depth chart.20 hours
86.Cam Robinson (knee) not participating in... (Rotoworld) Jaguars LT Cam Robinson (ACL) is not participating during OTAs. Analysis: Robinson suffered a torn ACL last September. There have not been any updates about his health, but it would be a surprise if he is not ready for Week 1 at the latest.20 hours
87.Dwayne Allen: Dealing with undisclosed injury (RotoWire) Allen did not participate in OTAs on Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Analysis: Head coach Brian Flores did not add any specifics regarding Allen's injury, which likely means it isn't anything too serious, especially at this point in the offseason. The veteran tight end signed a two-year deal with the Dolphins back in March.20 hours
88.Marqise Lee (knee) running to side at OT... (Rotoworld) Marqise Lee (knee) is not participating in OTAs. Analysis: It is not a surprise after coach Doug Marrone said he expected Lee to return late in the preseason. Lee was promisingly running on a side field at the start of practice, however, suggesting he could beat his coach's timetable. Lee should serve as Jacksonville's No. 1 if he is able to get back to full health.20 hours
89.Mack Hollins (groin) 'continuing to reha... (Rotoworld) Eagles coach Doug Pederson said WR Mack Hollins is "continuing to rehab." Analysis: Hollins underwent sports-hernia surgery in September after dealing with groin problems throughout training camp. Not being fully healthy almost nine months removed from the operation is a big concern. Even if he is able to get healthy, Hollins will struggle for snaps behind Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson, and Nelson Agholor.20 hours
90.Lions CB Darius Slay sitting out OTAs (Rotoworld) Lions CB Darius Slay is not participating in OTAs. Analysis: It is unclear why Slay is sitting out, but his average salary has fallen a bit behind the current corner market. As it stands, Slay is scheduled to make around $23 million in salary and bonuses over the final two years of his contract. The 28-year-old could be looking for a sweetener.20 hours
91.Cooper Kupp: Goes through individual drills (RotoWire) Kupp (knee) was limited to individual drills on the sideline at the start of OTAs on Monday, ESPN.com's Lindsey Thiry reports. Analysis: Kupp said he's happy with his progress but doesn't want to speculate on a target date for a return to practice. He's rehabbing from Nov. 16 surgery to repair a torn ACL and has been running in some capacity since at least mid-March. Coach Sean McVay said in April that he hopes to have the third-year wideout at close to 100 percent by Week 1. Kupp will be a little more than eight months removed from the surgery when the Rams open training camp in late July.20 hours
92.Lions DT Damon Harrison sitting out OTAs (Rotoworld) Lions DT Damon Harrison is sitting out OTAs. Analysis: It is not a surprise after he skipped voluntary workouts earlier this offseason. Harrison is looking for a new deal after the Lions traded a fifth-round pick for him late last season. Considering he still has two years left on his contract, he is unlikely to get more than a small pay bump.20 hours
93.Paul Richardson: Missing spring practices (RotoWire) Richardson (shoulder) isn't expected to practice until training camp, Kareem Copeland and Les Carpenter of The Washington Post report. Analysis: Richardson had a plate inserted in his right shoulder in early November to address multiple fractures of the clavicle. An estimated recovery timeline of 6-to-8 months always made him a shaky bet to log any level of participation in spring practices, but he is in attendance as an observer. Richardson was limited to seven games and 262 receiving yards in the first season of a five-year, $40 million contract, battling shoulder injuries throughout training camp and into the regular season. He should still ha... (More)20 hours
94.Carson Wentz will be full participant in... (Rotoworld) Carson Wentz (back) will be a full participant during OTAs. Analysis: Ian Rapoport reported this would be the case on Monday, and the Eagles confirmed it before OTAs opened on Tuesday. With Wentz fully recovered, the focus will shift to his impending extension, which Adam Schefter expects to be done at some point this offseason.20 hours
95.Patriots, Edelman agree to 2-year extens... (Rotoworld) Patriots signed Julian Edelman to a two-year extension through 2021. Analysis: The deal includes an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million guaranteed. Edelman was entering the final year of his deal, but this extension will keep him under contract through his age-35 season. Edelman showed no signs of slowing down last season, catching 74 passes for 850 yards and six touchdowns in just 12 games. With Rob Gronkowski gone, Edelman should be leaned on even more moving forward.20 hours
96.Malcolm Jenkins: Skipping OTAs (RotoWire) Jenkins' absence from OTAs may be related to his desire for a new contract, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Analysis: Jenkins has two seasons remaining on a four-year, $35 million extension, with base salaries of $8.1 million in 2019 and $7.6 million in 2020. His deal put him near the top of the market for safeties at the time of signing, but the 2019 offseason reset the market with Tyrann Mathieu, Landon Collins and Earl Thomas each getting at least $13.75 million per year and $26.8 million guaranteed, per overthecap.com. While his age likely will keep him out of that price range, the 31-year-old Jenkins hasn't shown any sign of... (More)21 hours
97.Jerry Hughes: Signs two-year extension (RotoWire) Hughes is signing a two-year extension that includes $19.5 million guaranteed, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Analysis: The deal is worth up to $23 million and keeps Hughes under contract with Buffalo through 2021. The 30-year-old defensive end hasn't topped seven sacks since 2014, but he has a seven-year streak of playing all 16 games while piling up 32 or more tackles and 10 or more quarterback hits. Hughes is locked in as a starter under coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier.22 hours
98.Lions OL Frank Ragnow working at center (Rotoworld) Lions OL Frank Ragnow worked at center during the first day of OTAs. Analysis: A first-round pick last year, Ragnow played almost exclusively at left guard as a rookie, but center was expected to be his long-term position. It looks like that switch will happen this year. Graham Glasgow, who played center last year, should replace T.J. Lang at right guard.22 hours
99.Zay Jones says he is 'bigger and stronge... (Rotoworld) Zay Jones said he is "bigger and stronger" entering his third season. Analysis: "I have been focusing on how I can maximize my frame and my body to be the best I can this year," Jones said. "I think it’ll help in many aspects. My blocking, my play strength, endurance, stamina, prevention of injury." Jones improved his efficiency as a sophomore on his way to a 56-652-7 line, but he will struggle to reach those numbers again after the Bills added John Brown and Cole Beasley in free agency.22 hours
100.Case Keenum: Takes first snap at OTAs (RotoWire) Keenum took the first snap Monday during team drills, Kareem Copeland of The Washington Post reports. Analysis: Keenum was followed by first-round pick Dwayne Haskins, while Colt McCoy (leg) remains sidelined but is expected to be ready for the beginning of training camp. JP Finlay of NBC Sports Washington observed a noticeable difference between Keenum and Haskins during Monday's practice, with the rookie holding a large edge in terms of both size and arm strength, while the veteran has a quicker release and better mobility. Both quarterbacks are learning new play-calling terminology from coach Jay Gruden, who has been clear about his intention ... (More)22 hours
