    • Le'Veon Bell (knee) back to 85-90 percent
      Le'Veon Bell said his knee is at about "85-90 percent."

      Advice: Bell hyperextended his right knee in Week 17 and missed the Wild Card loss to the Ravens as well as the Pro Bowl. He's resumed running on it and should be at 100 percent for the full offseason program. Bell, now entering his age-23 season, is going to push for 370+ touches again in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Josh Huff could get a crack at Cooper's job?
      Philly Magazine says it's "not out of the question" that Josh Huff could steal Riley Cooper's starting job next season.

      Advice: If the Eagles choose to keep Jordan Matthews in a strict slot role, Huff's path to playing will be clearer. We know Cooper, arguably the worst starting wideout in the league last season, is on shaky ground. The problem is Huff was not impressive as a rookie, catching just eight passes and losing a critical fumble. Profiling more as a sub-package wideout than a front-line player, he's only a deep Dynasty hold for now. Rotoworld.com

    • Robert Griffin III blames ankle for woes
      Robert Griffin III said his ankle injury was a big factor in his struggles last season.

      Advice: Griffin dislocated his left ankle in Week 2 and missed nearly two months. He returned for three games, but then embarrassingly got benched in favor of Colt McCoy. Now Griffin's place with the Redskins is uncertain as he heads into his fourth NFL season. "The biggest thing for me is coming back healthy. Last year I wasn't healthy, and it sucked, there's no other way to say it other than that," he said. Being injured certainly doesn't help, but Jay Gruden's questions about whether RG3 can succeed outside of the gimmicky Shanahan scheme are valid. His fundamentals have no progressed. Rotoworld.com

    • Austin Collie signs with Montreal Alouettes
      Former Colts WR Austin Collie has agreed to terms with the CFL's Montreal Alouettes.

      Advice: Collie has been out of the NFL since 2013 and hadn't had a real role since 2011, thanks in large part to multiple concussions and a knee injury. Now 29 years old, he's settling for a job in the minors. Collie was born in Hamilton, giving him "national" status for the Alouettes (Duron Carter's former team). Rotoworld.com

    • Ravens to tender RFA Tucker at high level?
      The Baltimore Sun suggests the Ravens could tender restricted free agent K Justin Tucker at a first- or second-round level.

      Advice: This would ensure that Tucker would not get any offer sheets because no team is dumb enough to give up a top-64 pick for a kicker. It also would give Tucker a sizable raise he deserves after going 97-of-108 (89.8 percent) on field goals over the last three seasons. A first-round tender would cost $3.113M and a second-rounder is $2.187M. Rotoworld.com

    • Blount denies orchestrating release from PIT
      LeGarrette Blount denies orchestrating his November release from the Steelers.

      Advice: Conspiracy theorists suggest that New England reached out to Blount and told him that if he wiggled his way out of Pittsburgh, he'd be able to return to Bill Belichick's waiting arms. So then Blount went haywire with his attitude and quit on the team, leaving Mike Tomlin no choice but to dump Le'Veon Bell's backup. The hole in that theory is that every team in the league had a chance to claim him before he became a free agent and signed with the Patriots. Regardless, in seven games as a Patriot since then, Blount has rushed 93 times for 430 yards (4.62 YPC) with six touchdowns. Rotoworld.com

    • Bills OC Roman: Manuel gets a clean slate
      New Bills OC Greg Roman said he'll give E.J. Manuel "a very clean slate" as they head into the offseason.

      Advice: "I definitely think he's done some very good things and displayed some good traits. I'd say we just have to get his level of consistency a little bit greater," Roman said. "What [he] might've been asked to do or done in the past is really not relevant to what we may or may not ask him to do." Those are the most glowing words we've heard on Manuel from the Bills since the season ended. Manuel isn't going to be handed anything. Top beat writer Joe Buscaglia expects the Bills to address quarterback in free agency and the draft. Rotoworld.com

    • Stevie Johnson expected to start in 2015?
      The Sacramento Bee calls 49ers WR Stevie Johnson a "presumed starter" for 2015.

      Advice: Michael Crabtree is a free agent and seems unlikely to re-sign with the 49ers. Brandon Lloyd is also headed for free agency, leaving Anquan Boldin and Johnson atop the depth chart. Johnson played just 305 snaps this past season, catching 35 balls for 435 yards and three touchdowns as the No. 3 receiver. Johnson is a crisp route runner with good hands, but the 49ers desperately need a field stretcher out wide. Johnson and Boldin are carbon-copy clones as possession receivers. Rotoworld.com

    • Packers unlikely to make offer to RFA Boykin
      The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel doesn't envision the Packers even making an offer to restricted free agent WR Jarrett Boykin.

      Advice: Boykin entered the season as the Packers' clear No. 3 receiver, but got hurt and was passed by rookie Davante Adams and left in the dust. He played just 122 offensive snaps after Week 3. Even if the Packers can't re-sign free agent Randall Cobb, Boykin appears on his way out. He's a slow possession receiver. Rotoworld.com

    • Some within Cowboys like Joseph Randle
      According to ESPN Dallas, there are people within the Cowboys who believe Joseph Randle can be a 1,400-yard rusher.

      Advice: Those people are likely sharing a drink with Jerry Jones, who always looks at his players with rose-colored glasses. Randle is a decent back who averaged a whopping 6.73 YPC on his 51 carries in 2014, but he's nowhere near DeMarco Murray's skill level. There are also questions about Randle as a receiver and in pass pro. Still, he's a name to monitor closely (along with Ryan Williams and Lance Dunbar) as we wait to see if DeMarco bolts in free agency. Rotoworld.com

    • Teddy Bridgewater on track for leap forward
      ESPN Vikings reporter Ben Goessling fully expects "bigger and better things" from Teddy Bridgewater in Year 2.

      Advice: Bridgewater recorded the third-highest completion percentage (64.4) and seventh-highest passer rating (85.2) by a rookie in NFL history. He did it even though Cordarrelle Patterson was a liability, Kyle Rudolph was hurt, Adrian Peterson missed 15 games and he was learning Norv Turner's offense for the first time. Over the final six weeks of the season, Bridgewater was fantasy's No. 10 QB and he'll bring serious QB2 appeal heading into 2015 -- especially if the Vikings bring back Peterson. Rotoworld.com

    • Bucs QB Mike Glennon could be trade bait?
      Some around the league believe teams will be interested in trading for Bucs QB Mike Glennon.

      Advice: Although Glennon was quietly effective as a rookie in 2013, the Lovie Smith regime never gave him much of a shot. Glennon started just five games in 2014, operating mostly as a backup to 35-year-old journeyman Josh McCown. Now the Bucs, likely to select a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, should be even more motivated to trade Glennon than they were last year. Perhaps a QB-desperate team like the Bills or Jets would be willing to part with a late-round pick. Glennon is under contract for just $687,188 in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Greg Olsen hasn't had extension talks yet
      Greg Olsen said he hasn't had any substantial contract extension talks with the Panthers yet.

      Advice: Olsen's deal is not a priority as he's signed through the 2015 season. It would also be silly for the Panthers to "buy high" right now as the tight end is coming off a career-best season at age 29. We wouldn't be surprised if the Panthers make Olsen play out 2015 as a contract-year player, ensuring he's highly motivated as the No. 2 pass-game weapon behind Kelvin Benjamin. Rotoworld.com

    • Corey Fuller wants to improve route-running
      Lions WR Corey Fuller said his offseason goal is to improve his route-running.

      Advice: Fuller, a former track star that is still raw as an NFL wideout, caught just 14 passes for 212 yards with one touchdown as an NFL sophomore. He's going to have to expand his route tree to separate from the likes of T.J. Jones, Ryan Broyles and Jeremy Ross. We're not expecting it to happen, leaving Fuller as a sub-package reserve once again in 2015. Rotoworld.com

    • Le'Veon Bell's marijuana case unresolved
      Owner Art Rooney II said he doesn't know whether Le'Veon Bell will be suspended for his August arrest.

      Advice: Bell was arrested on charges of driving while under the influence of marijuana ahead of a preseason trip. The new substance-abuse policy states that a player found legally responsible for DUI faces a two-game suspension. Of course, the NFL's murky personal-conduct policy means no one really knows what will happen with Bell once his case is resolved. As PFT notes, there could be a "make it up as you go along" exception lurking somewhere. Rotoworld.com
