  • Junior Galette suffers another Achilles' tear
    NFL Network's Rand Getlin reports Redskins OLB Junior Galette has suffered another torn Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

    Advice: Galette's second year as a Redskin will end the same as his first: With zero snaps. According to Profootballtalk, Galette tore his right Achilles'. It was Galette's left Achilles' that cost him all of 2015. Headed into what would have been his age-28 season, Galette's career is now in serious doubt. It's a big on-paper blow for the Redskins' thin pass rush, but it's unclear how much coach Jay Gruden was counting on a player who missed all of 2015. Rotoworld.com 51 minutes ago

  • Cayleb Jones could push for roster spot
    The Philadelphia Inquirer believes UDFA WR Cayleb Jones could push for a spot on the 53-man roster.

    Advice: Per beat writer Jeff McLane, Jones was "clearly the most polished" of the Eagles' first-year wideouts during the offseason program. Not that he had much competition. Jones has a big frame (6-foot-3, 209 pounds) and long arms, but his athleticism underwhelmed at the Combine. He had trouble separating in the Pac 12. If he makes the team, it will probably be as a special teamer. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:15 pm

  • Eagles want Carson Wentz to be starter ready
    Eagles coach Doug Pederson wants Carson Wentz to be "starter ready" by Week 1.

    Advice: "You want (Wentz) to be in a position where if there’s an injury or somebody goes down, you plug him in and you don’t have any worries," coach Doug Pederson said. "You’re fully confident in his ability to take over. Because backup quarterbacks need to be ready to go in an instant." In theory, it's just coachspeak, but it's also an admission the Eagles believe Wentz could be "starter ready" by the opener. Sam Bradford needs to have the season of his life to hold off the No. 2 overall pick for 16 games. Rotoworld.com Today, 12:10 pm

    The Eagles continue to insist Sam Bradford will be their starting quarterback.

    Advice: "I’ve said all along that Sam’s the guy," coach Doug Pederson said Monday. Barring a preseason injury, Bradford should be under center in Week 1, but that will simply start the Carson Wentz clock. Bradford needs to have a career year to hold onto his job for 16 games.

  • Bombshell: Josh Gordon can return Week 5
    NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon will be reinstated after serving a four-game suspension to begin the season.

    Advice: It's somewhat shocking news. Gordon's career appeared to be on the brink at times this offseason, but he's kept his head down since an unfortunate spring. Gordon's reinstatement is conditional, but he will be allowed to participate in training camp. That's a perk few banned players get. It means Gordon should be in near peak shape when he returns in Week 5. It's important to remember that Gordon has played in just five NFL games over the past two years, but he's still only 25 years old. He's a mid-round pick who will be an immediate WR3 upon his return, and perhaps a WR1 by the time it's all said and done. Rotoworld.com Today, 11:00 am

    Advice: The man who says his name is Aldon Smith in the video certainly sounds like him, but there's no definitive visual evidence. If it ends up being proven to be Smith in the video, it would be a catastrophic blunder from a player currently serving a year-long suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Both players should be involved, but Tye is shaping up as the much better fantasy bet. He is a good late-round flier. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:36 am

Even with significant questions at running back, it does not sound like the Lions will give him a ton more work on the ground.

The details of the second offer are not known, but it is clear Fitzpatrick is not interested in either option. Fitzpatrick has said he will accept a one-year contract for the same $12 million he would earn in 2016 under the three-year offer, but the Jets have been unwilling to make that deal to this point.

Green Bay has been desperate for help at inside linebacker for several seasons, and it appears they might have finally found it in Martinez.

    Advice: Treadwell admits he was "tentative" and played through persistent pain in his final college season. "I wasn’t 100 percent in anything I did from the beginning of spring ball (in 2015) to Pro Day (March 28, 2016). I was playing on one leg my whole junior season. It felt like I had a fire in my foot." Treadwell's pre-draft workout metrics disappointed, but they should be taken with a grain of salt.

    Advice: The video is titled "Fire up session" and shows a lit, hand-rolled cigarette. While Smith's face is not seen on the video in question, his voice is clearly heard, and the post comes from an account which featured Smith on camera several times. A woman astutely warns Smith he should not be posting the video, but Smith says it is fine because "they don't have my name." He then says his name at the end of the video.

The Bills have not been willing to meet that asking price to this point, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport believes Gilmore will play out the final year of his deal. Gilmore is likely looking for something similar to the five-year, $75-million deal Josh Norman landed this offseason. If he is allowed to hit free agency next spring, he will likely get it.

    Advice: This is likely more of a statement on how much the Cowboys will lean on Elliott than a prediction of his final carry total, but it is not a completely insane number. DeMarco Murray had 392 carries just two seasons ago, and Darren McFadden averaged over 18 carries a game after he took over last year. The Cowboys likely do not want to ride the rookie like they did Murray in 2014, but 300-attempts is well within the realm of possibilities. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:08 am

    Advice: The Eagles pretty much know what they have in Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel, and shouldn't feel the need to expose them to exhibition games. Because third-string quarterbacks get no reps during the season, preseason games will be Wentz's best opportunity to gain experience until the Eagles fall out of the playoff race, at which point Wentz might make starts.

    Advice: ESPN's Pat McManamon guessed in May that the team would move on from the troubled wideout, but beat writer May Kay Cabot believes new coach Hue Jackson will be "surprised" by Gordon. Cabot expects Jackson to "look (Gordon) in the eyes and try to determine if he's as committed as he needs to be." For all the headaches he's caused, it's hard to believe the Browns would move on from a player as talented as Gordon. Unlike Johnny Manziel, he's an actual star, and his transgressions have been less serious. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 4:02 pm

  • Report: Fitz believes Jets will 'give in'
    Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick believes the Jets will "give in" and sign him following their deal with RE Muhammad Wilkerson.

    Advice: The Wilkerson deal opened up some cap room, which the Jets could then use toward Fitzpatrick. Fitzpatrick is supposed to play in a celebrity golf tournament this weekend in Lake Tahoe, and things could then move quickly after that. But word from NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Monday was the Jets wanted to see Geno Smith with the starters for some practice reps before re-upping Fitzpatrick. If they don't know what Smith already is, that's a concern. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:58 am

  • Sammy Watkins: I’m ‘right where I need to be’
    Sammy Watkins said he is "right where [he] needs to be" in his recovery from offseason foot surgery.

    Advice: Watkins does not know when he will get back on the field or how much work he will do in training camp, but it has been clear for several weeks his recovery is trending in the right direction. The Bills will likely take it slow with their playmaker, but it is possible he sees action in the preseason. Unless he suffers a setback, Watkins should be good to go for Week 1.

  • Marshall hasn't heard from Fitz 'in weeks'
    Brandon Marshall says free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn't replied to his text messages for two weeks and said, "it's scaring me."

    Advice: "I don't know what's going on," Marshall said. "Me and Fitz talk every day, all the time, but I texted him the last two weeks three times and there's no response. The only thing that he can do to make this right is to say he was on vacation, ‘I was out of the country.’ It's not like him. It's scaring me right now. It's scaring me that my guy hasn't texted me back." NFL Network reported the Jets' standoff with Fitzpatrick could last well into August. After Fitzpatrick led them to a ten-win season and ranked top ten in passing TDs, the Jets' locker room will be an interesting place when camp opens with Geno Smith as the starting quarterback.

  • Jets, Fitz standoff could go 'well into camp'
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Jets' contract standoff with free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick could go "well into [training] camp."

    Advice: It'd be best for all parties involved to get this taken care of as quickly as possible, but neither side appears interested in backing off its stance. Fitzpatrick wants starter money, while the Jets seem to be wanting to pay him as a high-end backup. It'll continue to be a distraction for however long it lasts. Rotoworld.com Monday, 4:40 pm

  • Ezekiel Elliott to top 300 carries as rookie?
    Appearing on RotoViz Radio, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Drew Davison suggested Ezekiel Elliott could see 300 or more carries this season.

    Advice: "I think he's going to get a lot of carries," said Davison. "You don't use the fourth overall pick on (a running back) you don't plan to ride hard. With that said, I don't see him coming close to DeMarco Murray's 392 carries from two years ago. But I still think he should get close to 300, if not 300-plus carries ... because they're definitely going to focus on the running game, kinda go back to the Ground-N-Pound team they had in 2014." Davison later noted Darren McFadden (elbow) is questionable for Week 1, stating the team "feels like he's a good backup to Ezekiel Elliott" when healthy and calling Elliott the Cowboys' "clear No. 1 back."

  • Philly D.A. announces no charges for Agholor
    Philadelphia D.A. Seth Williams announced no charges will be filed against Nelson Agholor.

    Advice: Agholor was accused of sexual assault after an incident at a strip club in June, but the police did not find sufficient evident to justify charges. It is still possible the second-year receiver will face league discipline, but it is unlikely. Agholor will compete for the No. 2 job in camp. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 8:42 am

  • Fitzpatrick re-signing 'not a fait accompli'
    ESPN's Rich Cimini reports it is "not a fait accompli" Ryan Fitzpatrick re-signs with the Jets.

    Advice: Cimini says "common sense suggests" Fitzpatrick will re-sign, but "smart people in the know" are not 100-percent sold it will happen. After shockingly locking up Muhammad Wilkerson to a long-term deal, the Jets have more cap space to sign Fitzpatrick, and the veteran quarterback does not have anywhere else to go. It would be surprising if the two sides did not come to an agreement. Rotoworld.com Jul 18, 7:38 am

  • Vikings may use skinny post more often
    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune suggests the Vikings will incorporate more skinny post route concepts following the selection of Laquon Treadwell.

    Advice: Old Norv Turner pupil Michael Irvin rode the skinny post to a Hall of Fame career, and Treadwell's skill set is similar to Irvin's. Also known as the "Bang 8," skinny posts were not a part of Minnesota's 2015 offense with smallish Stefon Diggs and an otherwise underwhelming cast at receiver. The Bang 8 was a huge part of Turner's offenses in Dallas and San Diego. "Laquon's more physically gifted than I was," said Irvin. "He's going to put Minnesota on another level."

  • Wentz likely to open year as healthy scratch
    Eagles coach Doug Pederson said if the season started today, Carson Wentz would be a healthy inactive.

    Advice: Most teams dress only two quarterbacks on game day and Wentz appears to be a distant third behind Sam Bradford and Chase Daniel. Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice believes the best-case scenario is for Bradford to have a strong season so the Eagles could flip him for an early-round pick in 2017. That would pave the way for Wentz to see the field. We are still not ruling out Wentz making starts late this season, specifically if/when the Eagles fall out of the playoff hunt.

  • Wilkerson done; FitzMagic next for Jets?
    ESPN New York's Rich Cimini suggests the Muhammad Wilkerson deal could improve the chances the Jets re-sign free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    Advice: The Jets had only $3.4 in cap room before signing Wilkerson. Because that deal will lower his $15.7 million cap number by what Cimini anticipates as "a few million," it could free up more money to keep Fitzpatrick on a one-year deal. "The Jets haven't been keen on the idea of a one-year deal; perhaps this changes things," Cimini wrote. Locking up Wilkerson long term, then re-signing the Jets' starting quarterback would represent a big July for GM Mike Maccagnan. Rotoworld.com Jul 15, 7:27 pm
