  • Report: Jets offering Fitzpatrick 3-year deal
    The New York Post reports the Jets have a standing three-year offer for free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick.

    Advice: The proposal has a $12 million salary in the first year, and has "been on the table for four months." It sounds like it's going to take a higher base or more money on the back end to get something done. Despite a lack of movement between the sides, the Jets remain likely to get Fitzpatrick signed before training camp. Fitzpatrick has made clear his desire to stay with Gang Green.

  • Garoppolo and Brady splitting first-team work
    Jimmy Garoppolo and Tom Brady are splitting first-team snaps at OTAs.

    Advice: Brady was facing the possibility of a four-game suspension last season as well, but the Patriots still gave him all of the first-team work in the offseason program. Their decision to give Garoppolo more snaps this year hints at a pessimistic view of Brady's chances to overturn his ban. Garoppolo will be an interesting streamer and DFS option while (if) Brady is suspended. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:47 am

  • Romo believes he could play five more years
    Tony Romo believes he could play another five seasons.

    Advice: Spoken like a true Jerry Jones acolyte. Romo remains elite on the field, but has had increasing trouble staying there. He hasn't appeared in all 16 games since 2012, and was limited to four starts by collarbone issues last year. Romo turned 36 last month. Realistically, he's a year-to-year proposition at this stage of his career. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 3:36 pm

  • Tannehill will have more play-calling freedom
    Dolphins coach Adam Gase confirms Ryan Tannehill will have more freedom at the line of scrimmage this season.

    Advice: Infamously, Tannehill wasn't allowed to audible in Bill Lazor's offense. "In this offense, you're not really locked in on what the play call is," Gase said. "For (Tannehill) to have the ability to know what to get to — that kind of flexibility — being able to do that as a quarterback is very valuable." Gase went on to say Tannehill's intelligence is "off the charts." Coming off a season where he revived Jay Cutler's career, Gase has the capability to put Tannehill's in motion.

  • Saints, Brees have not negotiated in 2 months
    Drew Brees said he and the Saints have not discussed a long-term contract extension in about two months.

    Advice: Brees said he is "not stressing" over his contract, but he does not want negotiations to drag into the season. "I don't like to talk about contract during the season," Brees said. "So there's a deal to be done now, and then if it doesn't get done now, then there will be a different deal to get done at the end of the year." The reason Brees gives for the deadline is not wanting his contract to be a distraction during the season. That may be true, but this pronouncement has the added benefit of putting pressure on the Saints to get something done. It would be a shock if the two sides did not come to an agreement before the season. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 5:54 am

  • Bowles hoping Fitzpatrick signs before camp
    Coach Todd Bowles is "hopeful" free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick will re-sign before training camp.

    Advice: The Jets were previously hoping Fitzpatrick would sign prior to OTAs. There’s been no progress between the sides in the last month. Fitzpatrick is holding out for more than what the Jets are offering ($8M annually), but all signs continue to point at a deal getting done. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 1:36 pm

  • Eagles OC: Bradford not locked in as starter
    Eagles OC Frank Reich said calling Sam Bradford the clear No. 1 quarterback is "probably not the right impression."

    Advice: This contradicts what coach Doug Pederson has said all along, that Bradford is "the guy" at quarterback. "No, that's probably not the right impression," Reich said when asked if Bradford is the clear No. 1. "This is one of the most competitive industries in the world and so, to say that there’s not competition, that’s just the furthest thing from the truth." Odds are still heavily favoring Bradford to start Week 1 thanks to his hefty salary, but if Carson Wentz blows up this preseason, it'll be hard to keep the No. 2 pick off the field.

  • Update: Mariota gains five pounds, not 15
    Updating an earlier item, Marcus Mariota has gained five pounds of muscle, not 15.

    Advice: Titans reporter Terry McCormick evidently misunderstood something. It makes much more sense this way, as Mariota's Combine weight was 222. The underlying point remains that Mariota is bulking up in hopes of gaining durability in what's supposed to be an #ExoticSmashmouth offense. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 2:18 pm

  • Marcus Mariota bulks up from 210 lbs. to 225
    Marcus Mariota has added 15 pounds of muscle this offseason, going from 210 to 225.

    Advice: Mariota said he wants to be "sturdier." He's confident of maintaining his speed despite the added heft. Mariota suffered two MCL injuries as a rookie, and clearly believes he was too slight. Adding more weight adds more pressure to his joints, of course, but 225 pounds is far from crazy for a 6-foot-4 quarterback, even a running one. He was listed at 222 at the Combine. It shouldn't have an adverse effect on Mariota's play. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 10:46 am

  • Paxton Lynch to see expanded 1st-team reps
    With Mark Sanchez (thumb surgery) not expected to participate in OTAs, Paxton Lynch will see expanded first-team reps.

    Advice: "Just watching him, I think he'll catch up pretty quick," said coach Gary Kubiak after rookie minicamp. The 26th overall pick in the draft, Lynch stands 6-foot-7, 244 and has dual-threat mobility, which will mesh well in Kubiak's bootleg-centric offense. Sanchez is a short-term placeholder at best. If Lynch practices and plays well in the preseason, he should be given a serious look to start in Week 1 against the Panthers. Rotoworld.com Monday, 3:10 pm

  • Brady appeal asks judges to rehear his case
    Tom Brady's appeal in the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals argues that two judges who sided with the NFL to have Brady's suspension reinstated "got the law wrong."

    Advice: Brady's team is asking the three judges who heard his initial case (two voted nay, one yay) to "rehear their arguments." "The panel decision stands in stark contrast with fundamental rules of labor law and undermines the rights of union members and employers alike," Brady attorney Theodore Olson wrote. "This court should grant rehearing or rehearing en banc." According to the Boston Herald, Brady has "told friends since January 2015 that he'll go to his grave believing he did nothing wrong" in the so-called Deflategate. On a personal note, we CAN'T WAIT for this whole thing to go away. Rotoworld.com Monday, 2:48 pm

  • Sanchez to miss Broncos OTAs
    Mark Sanchez (thumb surgery) is not expected to participate at Broncos OTAs.

    Advice: He'll be fine by training camp, but this is an opportunity for first-round pick Paxton Lynch to work with Denver's first-team offense. 2015 seventh-rounder Trevor Siemian will also get reps with the ones. Sanchez is penciled in very lightly as the Broncos' Week 1 starter. If Lynch performs capably in camp and the preseason, however, we'd expect the Broncos to roll with him.

  • Ryan Fitzpatrick has no plans to retire
    Free agent Ryan Fitzpatrick said he has no plans to retire.

    Advice: "I'm playing," Fitzpatrick said. "I'm playing football next year." The retirement idea was floated last month, but it was never really a realistic outcome, as ESPN's Adam Schefter said Fitz would rather hang up his cleats than play for the Jets' low-ball offer. Expect the two sides to hash it out before camp. Rotoworld.com Monday, 9:34 am

  • No suprise: Brady appealing Deflategate ban
    Tom Brady will file an appeal Monday for a second hearing by the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn his four-game Deflategate suspension.

    Advice: A surprise to nobody. Brady had until Monday to file this appeal after the U.S. Appeals Court ruled in favor of the NFL on April 25 that Brady's four-game ban be reinstated. This ordeal has been going on for nearly 500 days now, and an end doesn't appear to be in sight. "The facts here are so drastic and so apparent that the court should rehear it," said Brady's lawyer, Theodore Olson. Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:15 am

  • Tyrod doesn't think offense should 'open up'
    Tyrod Taylor does not think the Bills need to "open up" the offense.

    Advice: He does think the offense can "grow" in OC Greg Roman's second season, but that does not necessarily mean Taylor will see a spike in passing attempts. Buffalo had the most successful running game in the league last season, and if anything they have a stronger running back group this year. Taylor played well off the ground game, so any "growth" in the offense would likely involve getting him more opportunities to push the ball downfield off play action. Taylor posted a top-five adjusted yards per attempt average last season and 14 of his 20 passing touchdowns came from outside the red zone. Rotoworld.com May 21, 6:37 am

  • Kirk Cousins excited by weapons around him
    Kirk Cousins said he "can't wait" to utilize the talented weapons surrounding him on offense.

    Advice: Not coincidentally, Cousins' big second-half surge correlated with the emergence of Jordan Reed and the healthy return of DeSean Jackson. With those two back and first-round WR Josh Doctson added to the mix, Cousins has an even better group of weapons to target this year. With all that talent around him, Cousins would make for an upside QB2 pick, but his affinity for the band Creed renders him nearly undraftable. Rotoworld.com May 19, 9:04 am

  • GM: Marcus Mariota has been 'as advertised'
    Titans GM Jon Robinson said Marcus Mariota has been "as advertised."

    Advice: "He has command, and he has a nice presence to him out there," Robinson said. "His skills, he has really good throwing talent. He is a mobile quarterback who is a fluid mover in the pocket, a fluid mover outside of the pocket. There is really, really good upside with him." Mariota struggled with downfield passing and poise under pressure as a rookie, but he flashed big-time playmaking ability. The sky is the limit if Tennessee can do a better job in protection.
