  • Rams plan to throw Jared Goff into the fire
    Coach Jeff Fisher said the "goal" is for No. 1 pick Jared Goff to be the Week 1 starting quarterback.

    Advice: As expected. The Rams don't have the luxury to sit their first-round quarterback behind a quality veteran stopgap like the Eagles do with Sam Bradford and Carson Wentz. And that certainly played into the Rams' decision between Goff and Wentz. Wentz may have the higher long-term ceiling, but Goff is viewed by most as the more pro-ready prospect. Case Keenum will hold the clipboard, while the Rams attempt to unload Nick Foles either this draft weekend or this summer. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:24 am

  • Lynch trade leaves Fitzpatrick out of options
    ESPN's Rich Cimini believes Denver's decision to draft Paxton Lynch could facilitate Ryan Fitzpatrick's return to the Jets.

    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. So far Fitzpatrick has held firm at his $16 million a year asking price, but he's lost most of his negotiating power and will have to settle for less if he wants to rejoin Gang Green.

  • Elway: Broncos no longer pursuing Kaepernick
    Broncos GM John Elway confirmed the team will no longer pursue Colin Kaepernick after drafting Memphis QB Paxton Lynch with the 26th overall pick.

    Advice: They'll also be out of the running for Sam Bradford. The Kaepernick trade had legs a few weeks back but talks had died down recently and now the Broncos have a potential franchise quarterback in Lynch. It remains to be seen if Kaepernick can patch things up with San Francisco after demanding a trade earlier this offseason. Per Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, some teams think the 49ers will simply cut him. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:26 pm

  • 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 Yesterday, 8:04 pm

  • Eagles get their man, make Wentz No. 2 pick
    Eagles selected North Dakota State QB Carson Wentz with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft.

    Advice: Despite their protestations, the Eagles knew they were taking the Bison quarterback all along. Wentz (6'5/237) made just 23 FCS starts, missing eight games as a senior due to a fractured wrist. He compiled a 20-3 record, 64.1 completion percentage, 8.36 YPA and 45:14 TD-to-INT ratio. A top-shelf athlete for the position, Wentz has an 81st-percentile SPARQ score and aced the Wonderlic with a 40. Wentz flashed NFL-level arm strength, ball location and deep-ball accuracy versus FCS competition, but needs a lot of work on his pocket mechanics and wasn't a dominant player in the Missouri Valley Conference. He also turns 24 late in his rookie season, whereas Jared Goff is still only 21. Wentz is flush with franchise-quarterback traits, but he may need a year on the bench before he's pro ready.

  • 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 Yesterday, 5:16 pm

  • Jets beat writer: Fitzpatrick wants to play
    According to Brian Costello of the New York Post, free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick wants to play in 2016.

    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.

  • Schefter: FitzMagic threatening to not play
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Thursday that free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick has told people he would "rather not play football" than play for the Jets at their latest contract offer.

    Advice: It's believed Gang Green offered Fitzpatrick a deal worth $7-8 million annually, while FitzMagic has demanded a contract worth upwards of $16 million per year. Fitzpatrick feels low balled and disrespected by the Jets, who want to retain him but are restricted by the salary cap. They could lessen their cap restrictions by trading franchise-tagged Muhammad Wilkerson this weekend. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:08 pm

While we wouldn't totally rule out a Bradford trade, it's certainly appearing highly unlikely at the moment.

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.

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.

    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.

Norman seemed dead set on going to Washington, so we're not sure it would have made a difference.

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.

    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.

  • Brees remains confident extension will happen
    Contract-year QB Drew Brees remains "very confident" an extension will happen this offseason.

    Advice: "I’m very confident that it will," Brees said. "I’ve got one year left, so it’s not the end of the world if it doesn’t and we play through the year. I’d rather not do that." Brees' $30 million cap number remains an astronomical sum and probably held the Saints back from being able to lure CB Josh Norman before he ultimately chose the Redskins. Brees is the face of the franchise and likely has been personally involved in contract discussions, so he certainly knows more than has been made public. A two- or three-year extension makes too much sense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:04 pm

    Advice: The Eagles gave Bradford an $11 million signing bonus in March, $5.5 million of which he's already deposited into his bank account. The Eagles see Bradford as their bridge starter in front of Carson Wentz. Were they to deal Bradford, Chase Daniel would become the favorite to start Week 1, but pressure to play Wentz would rise significantly.

ESPN's Mark Dominik believes a deal between the 49ers and Broncos is "done" contingent on San Francisco drafting a quarterback. With the Rams and Eagles trading up for the Nos. 1 and 2 picks respectively, the 49ers' chances of landing a top quarterback have decreased dramatically. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:38 am

  • Jets doing 'due diligence' with Hoyer
    The New York Daily News' Manish Mehta believes the Jets' meeting with free agent Brian Hoyer was a case of the team doing its "due diligence."

    Advice: The Jets did let Hoyer leave without a contract. He's flying to Denver next. Per Mehta, the Jets "still prefer (Ryan) Fitzpatrick, but they are preparing themselves for other options." Mehta also believes Hoyer would be signing on in New York to be Geno Smith's backup, not Fitzpatrick's replacement. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:36 pm

  • Free agent QB Hoyer set to visit Broncos next
    ESPN's Adam Caplan reports free agent Brian Hoyer will next visit the Broncos.

    Advice: Hoyer met with the Jets' higher-ups Tuesday night and continued his visit with the coaching staff Wednesday morning, but he's now moving on to Denver. The Jets' interest may have been overblown by some, as it's safe to say Ryan Fitzpatrick is still Gang Green's No. 1 target. Hoyer wouldn't be much of an upgrade, if one at all, over Mark Sanchez for the Super Bowl champs. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 10:22 am

  • Stafford had white-hot second half of 2015
    Following the Lions' Week 9 bye last season, Matthew Stafford completed 70 percent of his passes for 2,179 yards (7.4 YPA), 19 touchdowns, and just two interceptions.

    Advice: OC Jim Bob Cooter took over for the fired Joe Lombardi in Week 8, but didn't get his hands on the offense until Week 10. When he did, Stafford's game took off. He finished with the best eight-game stretch in team history. "If you really like what you’re running, you can be really successful," Stafford said. "If you have a great relationship with the guys around you, and the guy calling the plays, you can be really successful." Stafford is still just 28 and theoretically entering the prime of his career. The biggest concern for his fantasy outlook is the retirement of Calvin Johnson. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 6:27 am

  • Bucs sign CFL QB Dan LeFevour
    Buccaneers signed QB Dan LeFevour.

    Advice: LeFevour has plenty of connections to Tampa Bay. Head coach Dirk Koetter was LeFevour's OC in Jacksonville in 2011 while QBs coach Mike Bajakian was his OC in college at Central Michigan. The 29-year-old has spent his last four seasons in the CFL, most recently playing for the Montreal Alouettes. He's merely a depth signing and probably won't make it out of camp.

  • RGIII getting fewer 1st-team reps than McCown
    The Akron Beacon Journal reports Robert Griffin III has been given first-team reps in Browns voluntary practices, but that Josh McCown has received more.

    Advice: It's not surprising after McCown started eight games for the Browns last season as Griffin remained glued to the bench in Washington. We would expect it to change as the offseason rolls on, however. That, of course, is provided the Browns don't select a quarterback at No. 2 overall. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:55 pm

  • Report: Jets' Hoyer interest 'very real'
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Jets' interest in free agent Brian Hoyer is "very real," and that there could be a contract offer by Wednesday.

    Advice: We're not so sure. ESPN New York has reported Hoyer's visit is little more than "due diligence," and even with the Ryan Fitzpatrick talks at an impasse, the Jets already have an in-house backup plan in Geno Smith. If Hoyer ends up as a Jet, it will probably be further down the road. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:30 pm

  • Report: Kap, SF's relationship not improving
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the relationship between the 49ers and Colin Kaepernick remains in tatters.

    Advice: "Literally nothing at all has occurred to in any way repair this broken marriage," are La Canfora's exact words. Per La Canfora, the Broncos aren't budging in trade talks because they believe Kap could ultimately be released as part of an injury settlement. The draft continues to act as a de facto deadline to wrap the saga up. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:24 pm

  • Report: Hoyer visit just 'due diligence'
    ESPN New York's Rich Cimini reports free agent Brian Hoyer's visit to the Jets is just "due diligence," and that free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick remains the team's priority at quarterback.

    Advice: Hoyer is just a backup plan in case talks with Fitzpatrick completely fall apart. It could be argued Geno Smith is a better in-house option than Hoyer on the open market. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:07 pm

  • Matt Ryan: We need to improve in the red zone
    Matt Ryan said the team needs to improve its offense inside the red zone this season.

    Advice: The Falcons finished 18th in red zone scoring last year, down from sixth in 2014. Atlanta certainly has the tools to be a force inside the red zone. Julio Jones is a nightmare to defend while Atlanta's running game was much improved with Devonta Freeman leading the charge. Ryan said he's more comfortable in OC Kyle Shanahan's offense after going through a tough adjustment period in 2015. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 11:25 am

  • Rivers looking to improve on short throws
    Philip Rivers wants to improve his short accuracy this season.

    Advice: Rivers finished with the league's 10th-highest QBR on passes shorter than 10 yards last year but still think he has room for improvement. "There were too many missed throws," said Rivers. "We’ve competed a decent percentage over the last few years, but all of those little things should be gimmes, like a 3-foot putt." The short passing game should be a point of emphasis under new OC Ken Whisenhunt. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:26 am

  • Flacco (knee) says he has resumed running
    Joe Flacco (knee) said he has resumed running.

    Advice: He has yet to begin throwing in earnest, but he said that should come in the near future. Flacco expects to be ready by the time training camp opens, but he will likely be babied through the preseason. He should be a full-go by Week 1. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 9:16 am

  • Mark Sanchez has made 'great impression'
    Emmanuel Sanders said Mark Sanchez has made a "great impression."

    Advice: "I was impressed by his arm strength. I was impressed with the throws he was making," Sanders said. "I’ve been here around the locker room and he’s been spending extra time in the facility. That’s the type of guy that we need. It’s going to be fun." Sanchez is taking full advantage of his head start over the competition the Broncos will inevitably bring in before training camp. It remains to be seen if his efforts will make any difference when it comes time to pick a starter. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 6:56 am

  • Brian Hoyer set to visit Jets on Tuesday
    Free agent QB Brian Hoyer will visit the Jets on Tuesday.

    Advice: That did not take long. Hoyer drew interest from the Jets last season before ultimately signing with the Texans, who officially released him on Monday. It is possible the interest is genuine, but the situation surrounding Ryan Fitzpatrick means any foray into the quarterback market has to be viewed with a grain of salt. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday Fitz and the Jets are not expected to reach a deal prior to the draft. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:27 am

  • Tyrod Taylor is not focused on his contract
    Tyrod Taylor said he is not focused on his contract situation.

    Advice: "The business side handles itself, whether it gets done or not," were Taylor's words at the beginning of Buffalo's offseason program. It is good Taylor is not worried about an extension because both coach Rex Ryan and GM Doug Whaley have made it clear he is not getting one this offseason. The decision makes sense from the Bills' perspective. Taylor has just one season of starting experience and did not prove particularly durable during that run. Still, if Taylor puts together another solid season, he could easily be priced out of Buffalo's range. That is a risk they appear willing to take. Taylor is set to make $1 million in the final year of his deal. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:18 am
