  • Whisenhunt praises Gordon's receiving skills
    In a radio interview, new Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt praised Melvin Gordon's (knee) ability as a receiver.

    Advice: "I think one of the things that really impressed me the most, which you don't really get a sense for of him playing college football, is how good of a receiver he is coming out of the backfield," Whisenhunt said. "He made some really good plays in that area." Gordon was not heavily involved in the passing game at Wisconsin, but he looked good converting 33-of-37 targets for 192 yards as a rookie. His opportunities in the passing game will always be limited with Danny Woodhead around, but Gordon has proven he is not a liability on passing downs. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago

  • Matt Forte 'perfect fit' in Patriots offense?
    ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss believes free agent Matt Forte "could be a perfect fit" with the Patriots.

    Advice: The price would have to be right -- the Pats aren't the sort of team to pay top dollar for a 30-year-old running back -- but on paper there isn't a better fit across the league than Forte in Foxboro. Reiss previously suggested the Patriots will "explore the possibility" of signing Forte. LeGarrette Blount is a free agent, while space back Dion Lewis is rehabbing a torn ACL.

  • Morgan faces gun charges after shooting himself
    Free agent WR Josh Morgan was charged with reckless use of a firearm after accidentally shooting himself in Virginia on January 31.

    Advice: That's a misdemeanor offense. Morgan claims he was cleaning the gun when he shot himself. He was hospitalized but none of his injuries were life-threatening. Morgan will appear in court next month. He went to training camp with the Saints last summer but was among the team's final cuts. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:42 pm

    Saints re-signed FB Austin Johnson to a one-year contract.

    Advice: He was an exclusive rights free agent. The Saints cut Johnson in November but re-signed him a month later. He'll be competing with Toben Opurum for a roster spot this summer. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:03 pm

    Broncos signed RB Kapri Bibbs to a reserve/future contract.

    Advice: Bibbs was active for one game last season, a Week 6 win over Cleveland. He returned a kick for 15 yards but didn't see carries. Even with Ronnie Hillman headed for free agency, Bibbs faces an uphill battle to crack Denver's 53-man roster. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:49 pm

  • Taylor signs reserve/future deal with Denver
    Broncos signed WR Jordan Taylor to a to a reserve/future contract.

    Advice: Taylor spent time on the Denver practice squad in 2015 and served as Peyton Manning's throwing partner while he rehabbed from a foot injury. The UDFA out of Rice has yet to play an NFL snap. Taylor does offer the requisite size (6'4/209) and just enough speed (4.52) to be worth considering in especially deep Dynasty leagues. What he lacks is clear immediate opportunity. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:34 pm

  • Andy Dalton (thumb) still taking things slow
    Andy Dalton (thumb) hasn't begun throwing yet.

    Advice: "Not throwing yet because we are being very conservative with it," said Dalton in a text message earlier this week. "I feel like I can throw but no reason to push anything right now." Dalton was having his best season before a broken thumb ended it in Week 14. He should be ready for OTAs. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 2:14 pm

  • Drew Brees' salary becomes guaranteed
    $10.85 million of Drew Brees' base salary for 2016 became fully guaranteed on Wednesday.

    Advice: The Saints were never going to part with Brees, but extending his contract makes sense because it would lower his absurd $30 million cap number. New Orleans has already cleared cap space by releasing LB David Hawthorne, OG Jahri Evans, and LB Ramon Humber. Dannell Ellerbe also agreed to take a pay cut. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 1:27 pm

  • Investigators recommend charges against McCoy
    ABC Philadelphia reports investigators are recommending the District Attorney's office file criminal charges against LeSean McCoy for his alleged assault.

    Advice: Arrest warrants for McCoy and three other alleged assailants are expected to be served Wednesday or Thursday. McCoy is being accused of assaulting two off-duty police officers at a Philadelphia nightclub last Saturday night/Sunday morning. This has a long way to go, but it's possible McCoy serves time on the Commissioner/Exempt List. He could eventually become a candidate for in-season suspension, depending on what the investigation shows. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:43 am

  • Could Titans be interested in Doug Martin?
    TitanInsider's Terry McCormick wonders if the Titans could be interested in free agent Doug Martin.

    Advice: McCormick is simply connecting the dots, as new Titans GM Jon Robinson was hired away from the Bucs and obviously has a familiarity with Martin. Martin has expressed his desire to re-sign with Tampa Bay, but running backs typically chase the highest dollar since their shelf lives are much shorter. The Titans have a mound of money to blow and a desperate need at running back. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:46 am

  • Colts 'likely' to move on from Andre Johnson
    The Indianapolis Star's Zak Keefer considers it "likely" the Colts release Andre Johnson.

    Advice: The Colts were lauded for their signing of Johnson last offseason following his release from the division-rival Texans, but apparently Houston knew something most of us didn't; Johnson was done or close to it. Now going on age 35 and coming off a horrific 41-503-4 line, Johnson may be one-and-done in Indy. The Colts can save $5 million against the cap by releasing Johnson. They can move forward with T.Y. Hilton, Donte Moncrief, and Phillip Dorsett. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:13 am

  • Gore says 2015 was toughest season rushing
    Frank Gore said the 967 yards he rushed for this past season were the "toughest 967 I got" in his entire career.

    Advice: It was the first time in five seasons that Gore failed to reach 1,000 yards. Many will cite Gore's age (33 in May) as the reason for his decline, but the Colts' offensive line was flat-out awful. It nearly got Andrew Luck and Matt Hasselbeck killed in pass protection, and the group opened microscopic holes in the running game. In Football Outsiders' DVOA, the Colts fielded the 27th-ranked run-blocking line. Gore should return as the starter in 2016 and could have a sneaky bounce back if GM Ryan Grigson adds talent up front. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:07 am

  • Ravens not expected to re-sign Chris Givens
    The Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec doesn't expect the Ravens to re-sign free agent Chris Givens.

    Advice: Givens posted a 19-346-1 line across 12 games with the Ravens after coming over in a trade with the Rams. He saw his snaps increase after Steve Smith Sr. tore his Achilles', but the extra work didn't lead to many plays for Givens, who struggles with anything outside of a "go" route. Givens hasn't made much noise since a decent 42-698-3 rookie season back in 2012. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:01 am

  • Storm Johnson works out for the Bengals
    Free agent RB Storm Johnson worked out for the Bengals last week.

    Advice: Johnson didn't play in 2015 after he failed to make it out of final cuts with the Jaguars. The 2014 seventh-rounder averaged a pitiful 3.0 YPC on 29 carries as a rookie and was subject of criticism from coach Gus Bradley last spring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:46 am

  • Mike Wallace not expected back with Vikings
    The Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Matt Vensel doesn't expect Mike Wallace back with the Vikings in 2016.

    Advice: At least not at his current $11.5 million cap number. The Vikings can release Wallace with zero dead-money hit on the salary cap, which makes this a complete no-brainer. Wallace posted a 39-473-2 line in his first season in Minnesota. The Vikings will move on with Stefon Diggs and Jarius Wright at the X and slot spots while looking for a big-bodied Z receiver on the outside. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 6:31 am

  • LeSean McCoy would be difficult to release
    $2.5 million of LeSean McCoy's $4.8 million salary for 2016 is guaranteed.

    Advice: The rest of it becomes guaranteed when the new league year begins on March 9. In other words, the Bills would have little financial incentive to move on from McCoy if he ends up getting charged in his assault case. Cutting McCoy now would create a whopping $10.5 million in dead money, and suck up an additional $5.325 million in cap space. Unless there are new, more explosive details yet to be released, we'd fully expect McCoy to keep his roster spot. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 1:37 pm

  • Arrest warrant 'imminent' for LeSean McCoy
    FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports LeSean McCoy is expected to be served with a self-surrender arrest warrant by the middle of the week.

    Advice: ESPN's Mark Schwarz reports a warrant is "imminent." McCoy and three other men including ex-Chargers RB Curtis Brinkley are alleged to have assaulted at least two off-duty police officers over a bottle of champagne. Under the new personal conduct policy, players can be placed on the commissioner exempt list if formally charged with a violent crime. If placed on the exempt list, McCoy would remain on paid leave until the criminal proceedings are completed. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 5:54 am

    CSN Philadelphia reports LeSean McCoy was allegedly involved in the assault of three off-duty Philadelphia police officers early Monday morning.

    Advice: McCoy, former NFL RB Curtis Brinkley, former Pitt WR T.J. Porter and Christopher Henderson reportedly got into a physical altercation over a bottle of champagne with three off-duty officers around 2:45 a.m. Monday morning at the Recess Lounge in Philadelphia. ABC 6 reports two of the officers were hospitalized as a result of the altercation, and Fox 29's Dave Schratwieser reports one of the officers suffered a fractured skull. None of the alleged assailants were not arrested, but they are reportedly the focus of the investigation.

  • Matt Forte a possibility for New England?
    Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston believes the Patriots will "explore the possibility" of signing impending free agent Matt Forte.

  • Melvin Gordon: I should be ready in 2 months
    Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Melvin Gordon (knee cartilage surgery) suggested he'll be back to 100 percent in two months.

    Advice: The exact nature of Gordon's operation has never been disclosed. The Union-Tribune San Diego simply labeled it "knee-cartilage surgery." The nearly three-month timeline from his operation date suggests it was a bit more than a simple clean-up procedure. Either way, Gordon should be 100 percent healthy well in advance of June's minicamp. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 4:31 pm

  • Brees: Extension talks have not started yet
    In an interview with ESPN, Drew Brees said he has yet to have discussions with the Saints about a contract extension.

    Advice: "If conversations are to be had," Brees said, "they haven’t happened yet." Set to count $30 million against the cap in the final year of his deal, it is widely expected Brees will get a contract extension this offseason. Saints GM Mickey Loomis has hinted the team could leave Brees' contract as it is, but that seems unlikely. The two sides should work something out before free agency opens.
