  • Report: Kenyan Drake asking for $10M AAV
    CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports free agent Kenyan Drake is seeking $8-$10 million annually.

    Advice: That would be top-five money. Drake has never shown more than flashes outside of an eight-game stretch with the Cardinals, but teams may be willing to overpay for a 26-year-old coming off career highs. The Cardinals can franchise Drake, but his long-term demands could price him out of Arizona. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 4:10 pm

  • Jerry Jones hopes to re-sign Jason Witten
    Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he hopes to re-sign free agent Jason Witten.

    Advice: "I feel strongly he wants to play, and I think he can," Jones said. "I would hope that he would not ever be anything but a Cowboy. As I sit here right now I think he can make a real contribution." This conflicts with reports the Cowboys aren't expected to re-sign Witten. Dallas should ultimately make Witten an offer, but after playing 75 percent of snaps last year, Witten will need to accept a lesser role to return. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 3:04 pm

  • Jameis played through a torn meniscus in 2019
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Jameis Winston had offseason surgery for a torn meniscus.

    Advice: With Winston looking for a long-term deal, his camp is making sure to expose every ailment he played through in 2019 to show his toughness. Winston apparently couldn't see (eye surgery), couldn't move (meniscus surgery), and couldn't grip a football (broken thumb) as well as he should have last season. It makes his evaluation complicated because he was still productive, but the Bucs are on the fence with him as their 2020 starting quarterback given all of his turnovers. Expect the Bucs to explore the free agent and rookie quarterbacks over the next few weeks, but they may have to settle for each other if other options sour. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 11:53 am

  • Packers set to meet with Aaron Jones' agent
    ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are scheduled to meet with Aaron Jones' agent to begin discussions on a new deal.

    Advice: Currently set to make $2.19 million on the final year of his contract, Jones and the Packers are clearly getting ahead of what could be an intriguing situation to monitor this summer. Entering merely his age-26 season, Jones' 19 regular season touchdowns were tied for the second-most in Green Bay's historic franchise history last year, which not so coincidently occurred on a career-high 285 touches. Barring blatant signs of an impending holdout, Jones will undoubtedly come off draft boards as a first-round pick in Best-Ball leagues throughout the spring. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:31 am

  • Sanu to undergo surgery on high-ankle sprain
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu (ankle) requires offseason ankle surgery.

    Advice: Sanu's injury initially occurred in only his third game with the Patriots following a punt return against the Eagles. He exploded for 10/81/1 on 14 targets the week prior but totaled just 12/99 receiving over New England's final five games (perhaps because of said injury). 31 in August, Sanu reportedly tried to let his high-ankle sprain heal naturally but will have to go under the knife ahead of the new league year. His status for the team's offseason workouts remains up in the air. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 9:14 am

  • Packers plan to 'make a run' at Austin Hooper
    ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers plan to "make a run" at impending free agent Austin Hooper.

    Advice: The Packers are the second franchise linked to Hooper in the last 24 hours, joining the Bears among interested suitors. More franchises are expected to join in on the frenzy for the 25-year-old's services in the coming days, too. Green Bay is reportedly "intent" on adding another pass-catcher via the open market and the draft, and moving on from 33-year-old Jimmy Graham (who clearly lost a step last year) would not only clear $8 million in cap space, but give Aaron Rodgers another prime receiving outlet to detract from Davante Adams along the perimeter. The Falcons are also expected to try and re-sign Hooper. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:36 am

  • Report: Bears 'planning to pursue' Hooper
    The Chicago Sun-Times' Jason Lieser reports the Bears are planning to pursue impending free agent Austin Hooper.

    Advice: 26 in November and fresh off career-highs in catches (75), receiving yards (787), and touchdowns (6), Hooper's expected to garner anywhere from $10-$12 million annually on the open market — an amount Chicago may not be able to fork over with roughly $26 million in projected cap space to work with. Still, the interest is obviously there after the Bears saw Trey Burton and Adam Shaheen sit out a combined 15 games together due to injuries last year. General Manager Ryan Pace was also notably high on Hooper out of Stanford, regrettably selecting DL Jonathan Bullard (who the team cut last summer) only nine picks prior to the Falcons calling the tight end's name in 2016. The latter's fully expected to reset the market at his position this offseason. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:29 am

    Advice: Brady has been loosely connected to the Colts in recent days, but this isn't the first refutation of the rumor. Holder adds the Colts could still express interest in the future. Whereas cold water has been thrown on the Brady/Colts rumors, the opposite is true when it comes to the Chargers and Raiders. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:49 pm

    Advice: It's the first team Reed has been linked to since his release from the Redskins. Reed, of course, is well familiar with Sean McVay from his Redskins days. With Tyler Higbee coming off a breakout season and Gerald Everett under contract for 2020, it would be an odd fit from a targets standpoint, especially since the Rams are amongst the deepest teams in the league at wide receiver. Perhaps McVay is simply trying to do Reed a favor and kick start his market. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 9:11 pm

  • Cowboys meet with Cooper's rep Thursday
    The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys met with impending free agent Amari Cooper's player rep on Thursday.

    Advice: With the new CBA apparently eliminating the use of the franchise and transition tags in the same year — a change that would take effect immediately — the Cowboys must focus on a long-term deal with Cooper, as Dak Prescott will be franchised. The 'Boys will undoubtedly make an aggressive offer, but there is little reason for Cooper not to see what's out there on the open market. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 6:13 pm

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken took it as a serious sentiment, and that the Cowboys have not dismissed the prospect "out of hand." Now 31, Bryant spent 2019 out of the league as he recovered from a torn Achilles' tendon. Perhaps the prospect will become more serious if Amari Cooper gets away in free agency.

  • Engram (Lisfranc) remains in walking boot
    Evan Engram (Lisfranc surgery) remains in a walking boot.

    Advice: It has been over two months since Engram went under the knife. He appears poised to miss the entire offseason program. Engram has been one of the best young tight ends in the league when healthy, but he has missed a whopping 13 games over the past two years. The G-Men must soon make a decision on his fifth-year team option, which is guaranteed for injury only. Despite the missed time, we assume the G-Men will pick the option up.

  • Giants TE Ellison considering retirement
    The New York Post reports Giants TE Rhett Ellison is considering retirement after a concussion ended his 2019 season.

    Advice: Ellison's 2018 was also cut short by a head injury. Last year, he went down in Week 11 before suffering a setback ahead of Week 16. Scary stuff. If the 31-year-old decides to continue playing, he will either be released or subject to re-negotiation. He is currently set to count an untenable $7.18 million against the cap. The Giants would save $5 million by cutting him loose. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 2:24 pm

The Pats have since leaked the spin that it's because they are waiting on the new collective bargaining agreement, but that does not explain what sounds like an almost total lack of communication.

  • 'Strong sense' CHI will add vet to push Mitch
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the "strong sense" at the Combine is that the Bears will add a veteran to "push" Mitchell Trubisky.

    Advice: That sentiment has been pervasive all offseason. It won't be difficult to do in one of the deepest quarterback markets of all time. Teddy Bridgewater and Marcus Mariota might be the two most realistic targets, while Andy Dalton is available via trade. Further down the board is Case Keenum. Ryan Tannehill and Jameis Winston are likely to land starting jobs, making them longer shots. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 1:45 pm

    Advice: They have been Brady's two most obvious suitors all along, so it is hardly surprising. Silver would also "absolutely not rule out" the Titans, while he thinks the Bucs are "very seriously thinking about this." Silver's colleague Ian Rapoport reported earlier Thursday that Brady's agent will talk to the Raiders and Chargers at the Combine, as well as the Colts.

  • Jon Gruden praises Derek Carr at Combine
    Speaking Thursday, Raiders coach Jon Gruden praised Derek Carr.

    Advice: Although Gruden did not emphatically shoot down rumors that the team might upgrade at quarterback — The Athletic reports the team is "exploring all options" — he did the best he can to talk up his current signal caller. "I really think Derek is a heck of a player and I have a lot of respect for what he has done," Gruden said. "I love what Derek Carr did and what he brings to our team, and I am anxious to continue to build around him." It's pretty clear what the Raiders have in mind. If an upgrade presents itself, great. If not, Carr remains a solid answer. They aren't forcing the situation but won't sit on the sidelines of a loaded quarterback market. Rotoworld.com Thursday, 12:35 pm

    Advice: It builds on Jeff Darlington's Thursday morning report that Brady is "currently operating under the belief" he will be playing elsewhere in 2020. Per Rapsheet, Brady's agent is meeting with nearly every quarterback-needy team at the Combine, including the Chargers, Raiders and Colts. Rapsheet does not report if those meetings are Brady specific. Perhaps this is the last bit of scuttlebutt before the sides finally reunite, but it is quite possible the reports need to be taken at face value and Brady is moving on.

  • Report: Tom Brady not expected back in NE?
    ESPN's Jeff Darlington said Thursday, "I’m now at the point where I would be stunned if Tom Brady went back to New England."

    Advice: Specifically, "Brady is currently operating under the belief that he will enter free agency to play somewhere other than New England next season, a sentiment the quarterback has shared with others." The Titans, Raiders and Chargers are reportedly the top three suitors for Brady. 2019 marked his worst statistical season since 2013 and before then 2006. In all three instances the Patriots were fairly depleted of talent in the passing game. It's not like Brady was suddenly rendered mute on deep balls: he was one of 14 QBs to post a QB Rating over 100 on passes thrown at least 20 yards downfield (PFF). Yes, he led the league in throwaways (40) and posted the third-highest rate of bad throws (Pro Football Reference) ... but he also had to deal with the seventh-highest drop rate. The GOAT isn't washed just yet, although the days of him elevating a porous supporting cast might be over. This will be the main free agency story line to watch moving forward.

  • Report: Colts expected to land Philip Rivers?
    ProFootballNetwork.com's Tony Pauline reports people at the NFL combine have indicated that Philip Rivers will sign with the Colts.

    Advice: The sources reportedly point to the fact that Rivers has a "great relationship with head coach Frank Reich," and, "It should also be an easy signing as the Colts are projected to have a lot of room under the cap." Obviously the Colts didn't quite see the whole Andrew Luck retirement coming. Still, devoting an early round pick to the position regardless of whether or not they ultimately land Rivers is probably a good idea. The good news is they possess the type of dominant offensive line that could theoretically keep Rivers upright in 2020. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 8:22 am

  • Report: DAL to part ways with Jason Witten?
    Dallas News' Calvin Watkins reports there isn't an expectation that TE Jason Witten will return to the Cowboys in 2020.

    Advice: Witten will turn 38 in May. The future HOF TE averaged a career-low 8.4 yards per reception and scored just four touchdowns in 2019. There still might be a role for Witten as a part-time red zone option, but his current near every-down role is far from ideal considering the lack of speed it puts on the field. Dak Prescott has been much more efficient targeting Blake Jarwin throughout his career. Perhaps Witten will look to continue his football career elsewhere, or maybe he'll *throws up in mouth* rejoin Booger and company in the Monday Night Football booth. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:07 am

  • Mayock: If we can upgrade at QB, we will
    Speaking Tuesday, Raiders GM Mike Mayock admitted the team is open to replacing Derek Carr.

    Advice: "Derek Carr played at a high level," Mayock began. "I was very happy with Derek Carr." He then cut to the chase. "Every position gets evaluated every year, and if we can upgrade it, we will." It's innocuous enough, but teams that aren't considering changing quarterbacks say so. This does not mean the Raiders are for sure moving on, but they are certainly remaining flexible as the onset of an unusually deep quarterback market approaches. Moving on from Carr would not be cap prohibitive, instead creating $13.6 million in space. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:33 am

  • Bucs still on the fence about tagging Winston
    When asked if the organization would tag free agent QB Jameis Winston, coach Bruce Arians responded he'll know when "I know who else is available."

    Advice: Arians eluded that teams really don't know who's going to hit the market "until the tags come out," leaving 2-3 days to make any final decisions. He then added he'll know on Winston's situation when the organization knows "who else is available" next week. "Can we win with Jameis? Hell yeah," Arians said. "But you have to see if there is a better option." All signs point to Tampa Bay bringing back stud EDGE Shaquil Barrett in free agency, but Winston's suitor is still clearly up in the air. The 26-year-old returning on a short-term deal remains a likely outcome. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:28 am

    Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff said the team will let impending free agent Austin Hooper "hit the market" to see where his value is.

    Advice: While Dimitroff admitted that both De'Vondre Campbell and Hooper would test free agency, Atlanta's GM confirmed it "does not necessarily close the door on their time with the Falcons" and the team "fully intends on negotiating with them in the free agency period." 26 in November, Hooper is fully expected to reset the market at his position following career-highs in catches (75), receiving yards (787), and touchdowns (6) in '19. Barring a slew of surprising transactions, Atlanta's current cap situation will likely leave them on the outs of Hooper's contract negotiations. Rotoworld.com Tuesday, 8:06 am

  • Pace doubles down on Trubisky as 2020 starter
    Bears GM Ryan Pace reaffirmed Mitchell Trubisky will open as the team's starter in 2020.

    Advice: He made it clear the organization would still look at quarterbacks in both free agency and the draft to drive "competition." The front office is also expected to make a final decision on Trubisky's fifth-year option in May. The 25-year-old underwent shoulder surgery to his non-throwing arm in January but is expected to turn around and be cleared for the team's offseason program. With no other quarterbacks currently under contract, it's likely the Bears are playing the long game and eyeing a developmental piece that could potentially replace Trubisky both in-season and in the coming years if he stumbles out the gates.

    Advice: Schefter started out his Titans-Brady discussion by stating his colleague at ESPN, Jeff Darlington, "basically handicapped the Titans as the favorite right now." Per Schefter, Darlington ordered the likelihood of destinations as Titans No. 1, Raiders No. 2, and Patriots No. 3. Schefter added the Chargers to the discussion as a long shot. Brady has obvious connections to the Titans, having played with coach Mike Vrabel in New England, while GM Jon Robinson was a former Patriots executive. The Titans are also a playoff-ready team Brady would be looking for if he were to leave New England.

  • Bucs considering two-year deal for Winston
    ESPN's Jenna Laine reports the Bucs have considered a two-year extension for Jameis Winston.

    Advice: Winston would get a fully guaranteed $27 million salary this season — roughly the same the Bucs would pay him under the franchise tag — and a team option for 2021. It's not a player-friendly deal, but re-signing with the Bucs would allow Winston to rehab his value in a scheme that saw him throw for the eighth-most yards in NFL history last year. Winston may also be transition tagged, which would pay him $2.5 million less than being franchised. The Bucs have been linked to Philip Rivers and other free agent options, but Winston returning on a short-term deal has been gaining some traction. Rotoworld.com Friday, 3:32 pm

He has appeared in just 65-of-112 possible career games, good for 58 percent. He turns 30 on July 3.

  • Redskins release Jordan Reed after 7 seasons
    Redskins released TE Jordan Reed.

    Advice: The move comes after seven seasons, and sadly Reed's seventh documented concussion as a pro. This one cost him all of 2019. He cleared the protocol just this week. The move clears $8.5 million in cap space while leaving behind only $1.8 million in dead money. Still five months shy of his 30th birthday, Reed was on an early-career trajectory to be one of the best tight ends of the decade, but even beyond the head issues, injuries have absolutely wrecked his career. He has never appeared in more than 14 games, and has cleared 12 just twice in seven years. Reed seems committed to continuing his career, but he figures to give retirement consideration.

Standig adds that while Reed himself fully expects to be released by Washington in the coming days, he's told those close to him that he intends on continuing his career and playing elsewhere next season. 30 in July, Reed's inevitable release will free up $8.5 million in cap space.

    Free agent Jason Witten said he wants to "be with the Dallas Cowboys" but also understands he "may have to go somewhere else."

    Advice: This has always been implied. Witten did also say he has met with new head coach Mike McCarthy and has remained in communication with the Jones family in Dallas, but things have gone stagnant with the Combine and other contracts coming up. The veteran will have some opportunities outside of Dallas if it gets that far, particularly with the Giants and OC Jason Garrett.
