  • Saints likely to ask Colston for pay cut
    ESPN's Mike Triplett considers Marques Colston a candidate for a pay cut.

    Advice: Colston is owed $3.2 million in salary/bonuses with a $5.9M cap hit. He isn’t a lock to return after playing a part-time role last year. The Saints have Brandon Coleman as an in-house replacement. Yesterday, 6:14 pm

  • 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. Yesterday, 5:22 pm

  • Percy Harvin’s contract voided
    The Bills voided free agent WR Percy Harvin’s contract.

    Advice: Harvin lasted five games before landing on I.R. His NFL status is up in the air after retirement rumors this past year. Harvin is only entering his age-28 season, but hasn’t been healthy since 2011. Friday, 5:54 pm

  • Browns likely to re-sign WR Benjamin?
    ESPN Cleveland's Tony Grossi believes the Browns will re-sign free agent Travis Benjamin.

    Advice: Apparently sold on staying in Cleveland by new coach Hue Jackson, Benjamin has been openly hopeful of re-upping with the Browns. "Hopefully, I can lock up before March," Benjamin said early this month. Benjamin is 26 years old and coming off a career-best season. The Browns could potentially field a wideout duo of Benjamin and Josh Gordon in Jackson's first season as coach. Friday, 5:48 pm

  • 49ers void Anquan Boldin's contract
    The final three years of Anquan Boldin's contract voided.

    Advice: He’s now a free agent. The move leaves the 49ers with $2.7M in dead money. Boldin managed a 69/789/5 line despite playing through injuries and a combination of Colin Kaepernick/Blaine Gabbert. He’ll be one of top wideouts available despite entering his age-36 season. Friday, 2:30 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. Friday, 11:14 am

  • Kenny Bell to have big role in passing game
    ESPN's Adam Caplan expects second-year WR Kenny Bell to have a "pretty good role" in the Bucs' 2016 passing game.

    Advice: A fifth-round pick last May, Bell suffered a hamstring injury in training camp and missed his rookie season. Now healthy, Bell (6'1/197) is expected to compete for No. 3 receiver duties behind Mike Evans and Vincent Jackson. 24-year-old Bell is a name to watch in Dynasty leagues after he tore up last year's Combine with a 4.42 forty and 41.5-inch vertical.

  • Bucs expected to bring back Vincent Jackson
    The Bucs are fully expected to bring back Vincent Jackson.

    Advice: A poor free agent wide receiver market can't hurt V-Jax's case to stay in Tampa Bay, where he is owed a $9.78 million base salary, all of which would come off the salary cap books were Jackson released. The Bucs are flush with cap space already, however, and they're very unlikely to find a better option across from Mike Evans this offseason. Jackson turned 33 last month. Friday, 6:30 am

  • Jones 'normal' as possible after nerve damage
    Lions WR T.J. Jones said he is as "normal" as possible after missing 2014 with nerve damage.

    Advice: Complications from a shoulder injury caused nerve damage which limited the feeling in Jones' hands. The issue cost Jones his entire rookie season and limited him early last season, but he started to feel more normal as the year progressed. With Calvin Johnson looking likely to retire, the 2014 sixth-rounder has a shot to earn a bigger role next season. Thursday, 8:06 am

  • 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. Wednesday, 3:42 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. Wednesday, 2:34 pm

  • 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. Wednesday, 8:13 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. Wednesday, 7:01 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. Wednesday, 6:31 am

  • Stedman Bailey )head) still wants to play
    Stedman Bailey (head) still wants to return to playing in the NFL.

    Advice: Bailey was shot multiple times in the head back in November while he was in Florida serving a four-game suspension. Doctors have told him he's unlikely to play again, but Bailey has other thoughts. "When somebody tells me that they don't think I can do something, you know I'll do everything that I can to prove them wrong," Bailey said. "And I will be making a return to the NFL." We like Bailey's ambition, but odds are high he doesn't play another down. Tuesday, 7:57 pm

  • Travis Benjamin hopes for new deal with CLE
    Free agent Travis Benjamin hopes to have a new deal with the Browns before hitting the open market.

    Advice: "Hopefully, I can lock up before March," Benjamin said. Benjamin has spoken with new coach Hue Jackson, who apparently had glowing things to say. "He loves my skill set, loves my speed," Benjamin said of Jackson. "Hopefully it will be a great 2016 season for us." Players who profess such an open desire to remain with their current team rarely reach free agency. Feb 4, 11:20 am
