  • DeAndre Hopkins intends to improve RAC
    DeAndre Hopkins says one of his offseason priorities is to improve his run after catch.

    Advice: Hopkins made 2015 highlight reels as a dominant winner of contested catches and one-handed grabs. With only 201 yards after catch, however, Hopkins ranked a lowly 118th in the NFL in that statistic. Hopkins says he considers himself to have "finished last in" yards after catch. It's a reminder that Hopkins may still offer room for significant improvement; he doesn't turn 24 until June. Rotoworld.com 37 minutes ago

  • Browns could have interest in Osweiler
    The MMQB's Peter King suggests the Browns are the top competition for free agent Brock Osweiler.

    Advice: The Browns are projected to take a quarterback at No. 2 overall, but have a ton cap space ($33.2M) to make a run at Osweiler. With Von Miller expected to be franchised, Osweiler could max his value on the open market. Osweiler is the favorite to open 2016 as Denver’s starter, but is going to command higher than the $12.25M AAV Nick Foles got from the Rams. Rotoworld.com Today, 3:21 pm

    Advice: McIntyre reports there was a "strong market" last season for Jackson, who took less money to come back to the Seahawks. Jackson has had several stints as a starter throughout his career, but he has proven to be a backup-level player. He has not started a game since 2011.

    The Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota said he "would be very surprised" if the Cowboys did not use one of their first three picks on a running back.

    Advice: The No. 4 overall pick is too early to reach for a running back, but a runner could be in the Cowboys' plans in the second round. Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott has expressed his desire to play for Dallas, but he is unlikely to last that long. Alabama RB Derrick Henry could be an option in the second, and Arkansas RB Alex Collins could be available when the Cowboys pick in the third. Regardless of who the they go with, Darren McFadden should expect rookie company in the backfield next season. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:05 am

  • Osweiler expected to command more than Foles
    The Denver Post's Troy Renck believes Nick Foles' two-year, $24.5 million extension with the Rams "won't suffice" as a blueprint for free agent Brock Osweiler's pending contract with the Broncos.

    Advice: Renck does see Foles' deal as a "jumping off point" in talks with Denver, but anticipates Osweiler asking for "more years," and obviously more money. Still only 25 years old even with his four-year rookie contract expiring, Osweiler could conceivably offer more upside than his 2015 game film suggests. Osweiler had sometimes-frenetic movement in the pocket and long stretches where he couldn't get the offense moving, especially in the second halves of games. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:57 pm

"Hopefully, I can lock up before March," Benjamin said early this month. Benjamin is 26 years old and coming off a career-best season.

  • Report: Forte 'lucky' to command $4M per year
    After speaking to "a few NFL folks," ESPN's Jeremy Fowler believes free agent Matt Forte will be "lucky" to command more than $4 million per year on the open market.

    Advice: "The life of a 30-year-old back," added Fowler. On February 5, Forte told NFL Network's Lindsay Rhodes that "it ain't about the money ... I'm trying to get a Super Bowl." Forte's market shouldn't become overly pricey, and it sounds like he's satisfied with that. Forte is Rotoworld's No. 2 free agent running back, behind Doug Martin and just ahead of Lamar Miller.

The Jaguars want to keep him as their No. 2 tight end behind injury-prone starter Julius Thomas. Lewis shouldn’t require much more than the $2.65 million salary he made in 2015.

    Fox Sports 910 Phoenix's Mike Jurecki expects David Johnson to serve as the Cardinals' "bellcow" back in 2016.

    Advice: Andre Ellington will return as a lightly used change of pace. Johnson showed bellcow-back ability down the stretch of his rookie season, successfully handling touch totals of 24, 24, 33, 12, 14, 21, and 24 in Arizona's final seven games, including the playoffs. Johnson should be one of the top-five running backs off the board in 2016 fantasy drafts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:07 pm

  • Raiders expected to pursue running back help
    According to ESPN's Adam Caplan, the Raiders will be "looking to add another running back" this offseason.

    Advice: Although Latavius Murray's final rushing stats (266-1,066-6) look solid on paper, Murray mixed in long bouts of ineffectiveness and also seemed to fall into coach Jack Del Rio's doghouse a few times. Caplan suggests the Raiders could make a run at free agent Matt Forte, who would almost certainly take over for Murray as Oakland's starter. The Raiders are flush with cap space and could easily beat out most teams if Forte is looking to break the bank. The Raiders were major players in the 2015 DeMarco Murray "sweepstakes."

  • Matt Jones not a lock for top RB job
    ESPN Redskins reporter John Keim "wouldn't pencil in" Matt Jones as Washington's No. 1 back for 2016.

    Advice: After doing film study of Jones, Keim noted the third-round rookie's tendency to run too high, diminishing his lower-body power and leading to fumbles. Jones fumbled five times as a rookie, losing four. Keim also noted Jones didn't necessarily make strides as his rookie season progressed, averaging just 3.09 YPC on his final 70 runs. Jones currently stands clearly atop the depth chart, but he should face competition in training camp. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:17 pm

    Advice: He absorbed 44 sacks, sixth most in the NFL. The Vikings know their offensive line was a huge weakness, firing OL coach Jeff Davidson immediately after the season. The Vikings now have decisions to make on an ineffective and/or injury-riddled tackle crew of Matt Kalil, T.J. Clemmings, and Phil Loadholt.

  • Saints expected to keep C.J. Spiller for 2016
    ESPN Saints reporter Mike Triplett expects the Saints to keep C.J. Spiller on the roster, at least into training camp.

    Advice: The Saints would actually lose salary cap space by releasing Spiller unless they designated him a post-June 1 cut, which would affect their salary cap down the road. Triplett writes there's a "good chance" Spiller will get "another summer to regain his spark" after he fell behind due to pre-season knee surgery in 2015. Spiller has always been an exciting talent, but he's also been a fantasy disappointment far more often than not. He'll turn 29 this August. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:30 pm

  • Irsay: Luck's contract will be a 'shocking number'
    Colts owner Jim Irsay said Andrew Luck's contract extension will be "a shocking number."

    Advice: "It's going to be a shocking number," said Irsay. "Nine figures and probably a $20 million starting point per year." $20 million a year for Luck wouldn't be all that 'shocking,' especially considering some of the deals signed by lesser quarterbacks like Joe Flacco and Colin Kaepernick in recent years. But Irsay's message is crystal clear: Luck isn't going anywhere. Entering the last year of his rookie deal, the Colts would be wise to lock Luck up this offseason. The 26-year-old could be headed for the largest contract in NFL history. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:20 pm

  • Terrence Williams getting a raise in 2016
    Terrance Williams will get a raise to $1.686 million in 2016.

    Advice: According to the CBA established in 2011, players picked between Rounds 3-7 can earn a raise in the last year of their rookie contract if they play 35 percent of the team's offensive or defensive snaps in two of their first three seasons. Williams has played at least 67.9 percent of the Cowboys' snaps in each of his three seasons, which qualifies him for a $978,500 raise. Williams' teammate, S J.J. Wilcox, will also get a raise in 2016. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:14 am

  • Jeremy Langford the 'heir apparent' to Forte
    ESPN's Jeff Dickerson has pegged Jeremy Langford as Matt Forte's "heir apparent" after the Bears informed Forte they won't re-sign him.

    Advice: With Forte out of the picture, the Bears' running back depth chart stands as Langford, followed by Ka'Deem Carey and Senorise Perry. (Jacquizz Rodgers joins Forte as a free agent.) Langford had some monster games as a rookie after Forte went down with a knee injury, totaling 324 yards and three touchdowns in Weeks 9 and 10. Down the stretch, he and Forte formed a committee, and it was clear the Bears were grooming Langford as the 2016 starter. The Bears will add depth, but Langford has the inside track to the starting job. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:05 am

    Advice: Miller is said to be seeking $5 million annually after his breakout second half of the season. But Miller has never been able to stay healthy, turns 32 next season, and we doubt he'd get that money from any other team.

With Peyton Manning's future in question, Osweiler is the early favorite to be the Broncos' 2016 starter. But working out a contract will be the interesting part.

Martin is expected to ask for $8 million per year, or what DeMarco Murray received from the Eagles last offseason. "We'll have to see how it goes," Licht conceded. 27 years old and not much of an asset in the passing game, Martin is a candidate to get overpaid should he hit the market in March.

    ESPN's Rich Cimini reports the "feeling" around Denver is the Broncos will attempt to re-sign impending free agent Brock Osweiler.

    Advice: Osweiler gave back the starting job to Peyton Manning after a lackluster run in the middle of the season, but the Broncos are looking at a bleak situation at quarterback moving forward. Manning will likely retire after the Super Bowl, and the Broncos will not want to pay him $19 million or eat his $21.5 million cap hit even if he decides to play another season. With Osweiler a free agent, Manning's exit would leave 2015 seventh-round pick Trevor Siemian as the only quarterback on the roster.
