  • 49ers sign sixth-round QB Jeff Driskel
    49ers signed No. 207 overall pick QB Jeff Driskel to a four-year, $2.629 million contract.

    Advice: The deal includes a $112,540 signing bonus. A bust at Florida, Driskel turned his college career around after transferring to Louisiana Tech, throwing for 4,026 yards and a 27:8 TD-to-INT ratio as a senior. Driskel is a long-term project, but he has enough talent to make the investment worth San Francisco's time. He will settle in behind Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick as a rookie.

  • Jerry Jones confirms Kellen Moore is backup
    Jerry Jones said Kellen Moore will serve as the backup quarterback this season.

    Advice: Dallas drafted Dak Prescott to be their backup of the future, but he needs seasoning before he is ready to hold the clipboard. Moore struggled when thrust into a starting role last year, but he is a smart player who is an asset in the quarterback room. No matter who the "backup" is, Dallas' playoff hopes rest on the health of Tony Romo. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:54 am

  • Gabbert 'taking control' at 49ers' workouts
    According to TE Garrett Celek, Blaine Gabbert has been "definitely taking control" as the starting quarterback at 49ers' voluntary workouts.

    Advice: "Whoever’s at quarterback needs to take control and be our leader out there. And he’s definitely doing that," Celek said. "I think he’s definitely developing more and more as the days go on." Gabbert is the unquestioned No. 1 quarterback at these very elementary workouts because Colin Kaepernick (thumb, knee, shoulder) remains on the shelf and isn't expected to be cleared until June 1. When Kap does gain clearance, he and Gabbert are expected to compete for the starting job. Gabbert is getting an early leg up in coach Chip Kelly's new offense. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:01 am

    Advice: It's another sign of progress for Kaepernick, who resumed weight training about a week ago. He's expected to gain full clearance by the end of the month. Kaepernick has been the subject of trade rumors all offseason, but those have mostly died after the Broncos traded up to draft Paxton Lynch. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:58 pm

  • Tyrod and Gilmore next on Bills' to-do list
    Now that LT Cordy Glenn has agreed to a five-year contract, the Bills are expected to pursue long-term deals with Tyrod Taylor and CB Stephon Gilmore.

    Advice: GM Doug Whaley said he's "supremely confident there's a chance" the Bills will be able to retain both Taylor and Gilmore. That's about as noncommittal as you can get. Locking Taylor and Gilmore into long-term deals is easier said than done and would probably require some serious cap maneuvering on Buffalo's part. Taylor's $1 million salary this year makes him arguably the league's biggest bargain. If Sam Bradford can command upwards of $20 million annually, there's nothing stopping Taylor from pursuing a similar amount. The Bills added some insurance in the draft by taking Ohio State QB Cardale Jones in the fourth round. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:32 pm

  • Agent: Comp. would be biased against Bradford
    Sam Bradford's agent, Tom Condon, believes a competition with No. 2 overall pick Carson Wentz would be stacked against Bradford.

    Advice: "I know people say, ‘Well, why doesn’t he just compete and win the job?'" Condon said. "There is no real competition. If you’ve given up the draft choices (to trade up) and he’s the second pick in the draft, he’s playing. That’s all there is to it." Condon has a point, but Wentz is also a unique prospect in that he's coming from the FCS. The reality is, Bradford doesn't have any good trade partners. At this point, he'd probably be best off taking his money, being quiet and competing with Wentz in the preseason. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:31 pm

  • Jets: We could keep four quarterbacks in 2016
    Jets GM Mike Maccagnan insists the team could keep four quarterbacks for 2016.

    Advice: In other words, the door remains wide open for Ryan Fitzpatrick's re-signing. "If it’s in the best interest of the team at the end of training camp that we carry four quarterbacks, then we carry four quarterbacks," Maccagnan said. "To me, it’s a position where you have to take some time to really invest, grow, and develop players." If Fitz returns, he'd be joining Geno Smith, Bryce Petty and rookie Christian Hackenberg. In reality, the odds are extremely slim Gang Green would keep four signal callers. Smith would likely be traded, or Petty sold for a song. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:49 pm

    Mark Sanchez said he views the Broncos' selection of Paxton Lynch in the first round as a vote of confidence.

    Advice: "That’s been the message I’ve received," Sanchez said. "I’m thrilled about this opportunity." Lynch oozes upside, but he is a raw prospect who would be well served sitting behind a veteran for a year. Sanchez looks like that veteran.

Unfortunately for the Jets, they do not have that bridge quarterback on the roster.

He also wouldn't rule out playing rookie Christian Hackenberg this season. If the Jets get Fitzpatrick back in the fold, and keep Smith, then that leaves no room for Petty, whom the Jets used the No. 103 overall pick on just last year. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:51 pm

    The Bills declined E.J. Manuel's 2017 fifth-year option.

    Advice: This was an easy call. Manuel would've been in line for over $11.3 million in 2017 if the Bills had exercised the team option. Rookie Cardale Jones will give Manuel a run for No. 2 duties this season and very likely will take over as the direct backup next year. Manuel is more of a $3-5 million player.

"It’s really hard in this business to coach guys to keep their eyes down the field when they’re moving, and this guy does a great job of that." Kubiak likes to move the pocket and utilize bootlegs at much as any offensive mind in the league, and Lynch should fit those play designs perfectly.

  • Garoppolo could be traded next offseason?
    Mass Live's Kevin Duffy believes Jimmy Garoppolo could be traded next offseason.

    Advice: With just two years left on his deal and third-round pick Jacoby Brissett now waiting in the wings, it is not crazy to think the Patriots move on from Garoppolo next offseason, especially if he shows well during Tom Brady's suspension. Drafting and developing quarterbacks to eventually trade away has become a specialty of New England during the Brady era, and it seems likely Garoppolo will be the next in that line.

    Rams coach Jeff Fisher said upgrading the weapons around No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff was their priority in the draft.

    Advice: Upgrading one of the worst offenses in the league would have been a priority either way, but Goff's development depends partly on the weapons around him. The Rams tried to bolster those weapons by adding two tight ends and two receivers with four of their five non-Goff picks. All four players have serious question marks, but at least Los Angeles is attempting to address the lousy state of their skill positions outside of Todd Gurley. Rotoworld.com Monday, 7:09 am

    Coach Doug Pederson said Sam Bradford would be in danger of losing the starting job if he continues to stay away from the team into the summer.

    Advice: Obviously. Bradford remains M.I.A. from the team since demanding a trade when it was revealed the Eagles would take a quarterback at No. 2 overall, and he's still not answering calls from Pederson as he continues to pout at home. "Anybody that’s not in any of the 32 offseason programs is losing valuable time at that club," Pederson said. "So anybody that’s not in the offseason program, yes, would lose the time."

  • Cardinals sign Alabama QB Jake Coker
    Cardinals signed Alabama QB Jake Coker.

    Advice: Coker (6'6/244) rode the bench behind E.J. Manuel and Jameis Winston at Florida State before transferring to Alabama, where he went 14-0 as a one-year starter for the national champs. As a senior, Coker completed 66.9% of his throws for 3,110 yards (7.91 YPA) and a 21:8 TD-to-INT ratio. Coker offers NFL size and a "winner" track record, but he is a Mettenbergerian pocket sloth with shaky arm strength and accuracy, and a tendency to wilt and take sacks under pressure.

Stave looks the part with ideal NFL size, big hands (10 5'8"), plus Combine measurables, and plenty of arm strength, but his accuracy and decision making were problematic in the Big Ten, leading to more interceptions (22) than touchdowns (20) over the past two seasons. NFL coaches may be intrigued by his traits, but Stave is a fundamentally flawed quarterback with little chance of making it in the pros. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 6:11 pm

    Eagles coach Doug Pederson says he's yet to have contact with Sam Bradford since the quarterbacks' trade request.

    Advice: Pouting Sam remains inconsolable, even after the Broncos' selection of Payton Lynch took them off the board of potential suitors. The reality is, Bradford has nowhere to go, and will be in Philadelphia competing with Carson Wentz and Chase Daniel this season. The sooner he realizes that, the better.

While not particularly big or athletic, Bercovici flashes powerful arm strength and functional pocket mobility. A favorite deep sleeper of both Rookie Scouting Portfolio's Matt Waldman and NFL.com's Lance Zierlein, Bercovici has an outside chance to develop into a No. 2 quarterback.

    Bears signed QB Brian Hoyer to a one-year, $2 million contract.

    Advice: It's an awful landing spot for Hoyer, as he'll only come into playing time if Jay Cutler gets hurt. Of course, Cutler has been rather injury prone in his career, so there's a decent chance Hoyer makes 2016 starts. It's simply surprising he ended up somewhere where there won't be a competition.

He was voted Conference USA MVP as both a junior and senior. Doughty was a terrific lower-level college passer, but he is a classic system quarterback with sub-NFL arm strength and plodding athleticism.

    Advice: Driskel (6'4/234) spent one year at Louisiana Tech after transferring from Florida, completing 62.4% of his throws with an 8.92 YPA and 27:8 TD-to-INT ratio. A terrific athlete, he added 92-323-5 (3.5 YPC) rushing and ran 4.56 in Indy. Billed as the "next Tim Tebow" out of high school, Driskel failed at Florida due to injuries and part-time usage, before excelling in the Bulldogs' wide-open spread.

  • Jaguars nab QB Brandon Allen at No. 201
    Jaguars selected Arkansas QB Brandon Allen with the No. 201 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

Allen is small with small hands (8 1/2") and played in a simplistic, play-action-heavy offense at Arkansas, but he offers adequate arm strength, a quick release, and plus mobility. Allen figures to max out as an NFL backup, though he is smart and skilled enough to become a viable short-term spot starter. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 1:45 pm

    Advice: Rudock (6'3/207) spent one year at Michigan after transferring from Iowa, leading the Wolverines to a 10-3 record and completing 64% of his throws with a 20:9 TD-to-INT ratio. Rudock benefited from spending his entire college career in pro-style attacks, and draws high marks for intelligence and intangibles. His arm strength is baseline-NFL caliber at best, however, and Rudock needs to speed up his internal clock.

    Advice: "It doesn’t change anything with our approach to Ryan," said Maccagnan. "Our goal is to get Ryan back into the fold." The Jets would like to have Fitzpatrick as a one or two-year stopgap while Hackenberg develops. With Fitzpatrick unsigned, Geno Smith will open OTAs as the Jets starting quarterback.

  • Jets draft 'toolsy' QB Hackenberg at No. 51
    Jets selected Penn State QB Christian Hackenberg with the No. 51 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

    Advice: Hackenberg (6'4/223) looked like a future No. 1 overall NFL pick under Bill O'Brien before spending the last two seasons struggling mightily in James Franklin's offense. In 2014-2015, Hackenberg completed just 54.8% of his throws with a 6.53 YPA and 28:21 TD-to-INT ratio. As a 38-game starter, Hackenberg's career record was 21-17. Although Hackenberg is a plus athlete with NFL size and arm strength, he is a scattershot ball locator with major technical flaws and absorbed 104 career sacks. Hackenberg offers growth potential -- he turned 21 in February whereas Carson Wentz will turn 24 later this year -- but he is clearly a multi-year project. The Jets drafted another project in Bryce Petty last year and, as of now, will rely on Geno Smith as the team's starter. Rotoworld.com Friday, 5:47 pm

    Advice: The Broncos never pursued Fitzpatrick, but any chance he had of going to Denver died as soon as GM John Elway traded for draft Lynch at No. 26. Denver's quarterback opening gave Fitzpatrick leverage in negotiations with New York, but now the Jets are the only team with a "Help Wanted" sign.

  • Broncos trade up for Memphis QB Paxton Lynch
    Broncos traded up with the Seahawks to select Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the No. 26 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

    Advice: The Broncos are shipping the Nos. 31 and 94 picks to Seattle for the right to move up five spots. Lynch's selection means neither Colin Kaepernick nor Ryan Fitzpatrick will be Denver bound. Lynch (6'7/244) started three years at Memphis, finishing his career with a 63.0 completion percentage, 7.36 YPA, 59:23 TD:INT ratio and 17 rushing scores. Lynch has huge hands (10 1/4") and high-level quarterback athleticism, running 4.86 with a 36-inch vertical. Big, mobile and over a year younger than Carson Wentz, Lynch's drawbacks consist of up-and-down ball placement resulting from technical flaws as a pocket passer, frustrating game-to-game consistency and questionable intelligence after managing an 18 on the Wonderlic. Lynch has drawn some comparisons to Blake Bortles. Although Mark Sanchez remains Denver's probable Week 1 starter, we'd expect Lynch to make starts as a rookie. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 8:04 pm

  • Rams tab Jared Goff as franchise quarterback
    Rams selected Cal QB Jared Goff with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 draft.

    Advice: Goff (6'4/215) made 37 starts in three seasons at Cal, completing 62.3% of his passes with a 7.78 YPA and 96:30 TD-to-INT ratio. His career record was 14-23, although Goff had very little around him. Goff's weaknesses are smallish hands (9") -- leading to 24 career fumbles -- a simplistic, shotgun-based college offense that could hinder Goff's NFL transition, and a tendency to play too fast with bodies around him. NFL Films' Greg Cosell has compared Goff's skill set to Matt Ryan's. Although Ryan is not an elite NFL passer, he is a franchise quarterback. Goff will be a success if he reaches those heights. He's the Rams' likely early-season starter, and could quite possibly beat out Case Keenum to start Week 1. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:16 pm

    Advice: That doesn't necessarily contradict what ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today. Schefter only said Fitzpatrick would prefer to sit than play for the Jets' low-ball offer. Obviously Fitzpatrick wants to play; he's still only 33 and is coming off his best season. But for negotiating purposes, it's necessary for him to draw a line in the sand. The Jets and Fitzpatrick still have a big gulf to overcome -- about $8 million in annual salary -- but trading disgruntled franchise player Muhammad Wilkerson would go a long way toward narrowing the gap.

Roseman seems intent on retaining Bradford to operate as the Eagles' stopgap ahead of rookie Carson Wentz. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:09 am

  • Report: Broncos don't expect to land Bradford
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Broncos do not expect the Eagles to trade Sam Bradford.

    Advice: Schefter reports the Broncos are "mulling" their other options at quarterback. The Eagles have been steadfast in their desire to retain Bradford, and it does not look like they plan to budge despite the fit he threw this week. Coach Doug Pederson believes in letting rookie quarterbacks grow behind a veteran starter, and it looks like they want Bradford to be that bridge for whichever quarterback - Carson Wentz - they select at No. 2.

  • Report: Broncos 'are in' on pursuing Bradford
    A league source told 9 News Denver's Mike Klis that the Broncos "are in" on pursuing a trade for Sam Bradford.

    Advice: Klis reports the Eagles aren't yet budging on their stance that Bradford won't be dealt. Denver's quarterback pursuit picked up this week, with Klis also reporting 49ers GM Trent Baalke and Broncos GM John Elway had a conversation on Monday. Those talks didn't go anywhere, but may perhaps be rekindled on Thursday morning. The same goes for Broncos talks with the Eagles. Denver should feel urgency to emerge from the weekend with a quarterback. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:31 pm

  • Brian Hoyer won't sign until after the draft
    Free agent Brian Hoyer plans to see how the draft plays out before signing a contract.

    Advice: Hoyer has already met with the Broncos and Jets but it's possible more suitors will emerge after the draft. The 30-year-old played reasonably well in Houston last year (19 TD, 7 INT in 11 games) but couldn't stay healthy and melted down in the playoffs against Kansas City. Hoyer is hoping to land a starting job but that's probably unrealistic. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 4:22 pm

  • Report: Denver not discussing Kaepernick trade
    9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos are unlikely to make a trade for Colin Kaepernick by Sunday.

    Advice: While Klis conceded a Kaepernick trade is "not impossible," the two sides have had "zero" discussions and there's no indication that will change leading up to the draft. The Broncos won't be in the running for top prospects Jared Goff or Carson Wentz but Connor Cook, Dak Prescott and Jeff Driskel all visited during the pre-draft process and could be options later in the draft.

  • Baalke: 49ers could still trade Kap this week
    49ers GM Trent Baalke told ESPN's Bob Holtzman that "it's possible" Colin Kaepernick could be traded this week.

    Advice: Kaepernick trade rumors have cooled considerably. Last we heard, talks between the 49ers and Broncos were "dormant." Schefter's colleague at ESPN, and former Bucs GM, Mark Dominik has opined a deal between the two teams is already agreed upon, but is contingent on the 49ers drafting a quarterback. San Francisco could be a dark horse for Memphis QB Paxton Lynch or Michigan State's Connor Cook at No. 7 overall or in a trade-down scenario. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:40 am

  • Eagles looking for a 4th and player for Sam?
    Appearing on 97.5 The Fanatic in Pennsylvania on Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter said a fourth-round pick plus a player could be a trade offer for Sam Bradford.

    Advice: It's unclear if that's an offer the Eagles have received or if that's their asking price, but either way, NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reports Philly's asking price remains very high. They're likely looking for at least two early-round picks comparable to the Alex Smith and Carson Palmer trades a few years back. The only team that has allegedly reached out to the Eagles is the Broncos. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:18 am

  • Report: Broncos inquired about Sam Bradford
    9 News Denver's Mike Klis reports the Broncos inquired about Sam Bradford.

    Advice: Klis reports the Eagles' asking price was too high, but the report at least suggests Philadelphia is open to offers. Agent Tom Condon said Bradford has not been granted permission to seek a trade, but that could change if he continues to sulk. Condon confirmed Bradford plans to skip the voluntary portions of the offseason program. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:00 pm

  • Bradford not given permission to seek trade
    Agent Tom Condon said the Eagles have not given Sam Bradford permission to seek a trade.

    Advice: Condon confirmed Bradford will not attend voluntary workouts, saying his client wants a situation where "he's going to stay for a long time if he plays well." The Eagles have made it fairly clear they are not interested in putting Bradford up for sale right now, and it would reportedly cost him a big chunk of his $11 million signing bonus to hold out into training camp. If Bradford remains dead set on leaving, however, it might be in Philadelphia's best interest to move him before he becomes a distraction. This saga is far from over. Rotoworld.com Monday, 5:30 pm

  • Bradford would give up bonus if he holds out
    NFL Network's Jeff Darlington reports Sam Bradford would "potentially" be required to surrender "up to 25 percent of his signing bonus" if he held out more than five days of training camp.

    Advice: Eagles VP of Football Operations Howie Roseman was confident on Monday that Bradford would show up for the mandatory portions of the offseason program despite reportedly putting in a trade request, and this report could help explain why. Despite Bradford being "hot" about the Eagles trade up to No. 2, Philadelphia seems set on keeping him around. The Eagles gave Bradford an $11 million signing bonus in March.

  • Brady 'mulling options' for 4-game suspensio
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Tom Brady is "far from ready" to accept the U.S. Appeals court's reinstatement of Brady's four-game suspension.

    Advice: Per Schefter, Brady is "mulling options" with a "legal team," and "this is not yet over." Deflategate II appears destined to happen over the coming months, with ball-deflation arguments throughout the summer for the second straight year. It's really just what Boston sports radio needed.

  • Appeals court restores Tom Brady's 4-game ban
    The U.S. Appeals court has reinstated Tom Brady's four-game suspension as a result of Deflategate in the 2014 playoffs.

    Advice: The Patriots were reportedly bracing for this to happen after the NFL's appeal was heard last month. Brady will miss the Patriots' first four games against the Cardinals, Dolphins, Texans, and Bills before being able to return Week 5 against the Browns. He's still able to participate in training camp and preseason contests. Jimmy Garoppolo will slide in as the starter the first four weeks. Rotoworld.com Apr 25, 8:39 am
