  • Carr will not extend February 15 guarantee date
    Derek Carr has said he will not extend the Feb. 15 deadline for the $40.4 million injury guarantee clause in his contract. 

    Advice: In other words, the Raiders have to trade Carr before Feb. 15. Carr has a no-trade clause, so in other other words, he will not be getting traded, instead forcing his release. “I don’t think that would be best for me,” Carr said matter-of-factly. He is correct. Carr has zero reason to play ball with the Raiders, and though the remaining money on his deal is lucrative, he will make even more as a free agent in this quarterback-starved league. The Raiders threw Carr under the bus on the way out the door. He is reclaiming some dignity now.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 11:18 pm

  • Efficient in 13th NFL season
    During the regular season, Gano converted 29 of 32 field-goal attempts and 32 of 34 extra-point tries. He made his lone field-goal try and all five of his extra-point attempts over two postseason games.

    Advice: Gano was selected as a Pro Bowl alternate on the strength of his accurate kicking during the campaign. Among other things, he went 8-for-9 on field-goal attempts from beyond 50 yards, finishing with his most makes from that distance in his 13 seasons as a pro. Gano struggled at times with his accuracy early in his career, but he's since become one of the league's most reliable kickers, making 132 of 143 (92.3 percent) of his field-goal tries over the past five campaigns. Gano has one year remaining on his current contract and figures to be the Giants' primary placekicker again next season. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 10:05 pm

  • Sees production decline
    Vannett played in nine regular-season games between the Saints and the Giants, finishing with four receptions on seven targets for 42 yards and no touchdowns.

    Advice: Vannett began the campaign with New Orleans before latching on with New York's practice squad in late November. He eventually joined the team's active roster but saw limited action behind rookie starter Daniel Bellinger. Vannett's overall catch and yardage totals during the campaign were his lowest since his rookie season in 2016 with Seattle. Bellinger is the Giants' clear tight end of the future, so the team isn't likely to prioritize bringing back Vannett, who will be an unrestricted free agent. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 9:30 pm

  • Cements starting role as rookie
    Bellinger totaled 30 catches on 35 targets for 268 yards and two receiving touchdowns during the regular season in his rookie campaign. He added one rush for a two-yard touchdown.

    Advice: Bellinger saw his snap count rise steadily from Week 1 to Week 6 before suffering an eye injury against Jacksonville in Week 7. The issue required surgery and cost him four contests, but Bellinger immediately slotted back into a starting role upon his return and received the lion's share of New York's tight end snaps the rest of the way, including in two postseason contests during which he tallied three catches on five targets for 21 yards. While the rookie out of San Diego State didn't record more than five receptions or 42 yards in any game during the campaign, he made at least one catch in every contest after Week 1 and solidified his place as the Giants' tight end of the future. New York has a bevy of pass catchers along with quarterback Daniel Jones slated for free agency this offseason, so Bellinger's outlook for next year could be impacted by who the team adds, retains and parts ways with.

  • Mixon's agent claims charge being dropped Friday
    Joe Mixon's agent claims the running back's misdemeanor aggravated menacing charge is expected to be dropped Friday. 

    Advice: Mixon's agent claims the charge was the result of a "rush to judgment." Mixon's player rep isn't exactly a reliable narrator for the situation, but it is also doubtful he would say something as concrete as the charge will be dropped without it being true. What the fallout might be remains unclear for a player who has a documented history of violence against women.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 8:15 pm

  • Relegated to minor role on offense
    Johnson finished the regular season with nine catches on 22 targets for 99 yards and no touchdowns. He caught his only target for 17 yards in two postseason contests.

    Advice: Johnson began the campaign on New York's practice squad and got a permanent roster spot in mid-October. He ended up being active in a career-high 14 games but spent most of his time on the sidelines, particularly from Weeks 10-17, when he totaled just 46 offensive snaps and didn't record any catches or targets. Johnson heads into the offseason as a free agent, and considering his limited role with the Giants this season, his time in New York may be over after just one campaign.

  • Report: Mixon wanted for 'aggravated menacing'
    Pro Football Focus' Mike Renner reports Joe Mixon is wanted on "aggravated menacing" charges in Cincinnati. 

    Advice: Local sports reporter Chris Renkel has confirmed Renner's report. Per Renkel, Mixon is accused of "pointing a gun at a woman in downtown Cincinnati." He allegedly said "you should be popped in the face" and "I should shoot you now." This would be an extremely serious situation for any player, but it is especially disturbing in Mixon's case after he was caught on camera punching a woman in college. This is a developing story that will be updated as it goes.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 6:35 pm

  • DeMeco Ryans: We'll be adding to quarterback room
    New Texans coach DeMeco Ryans confirmed the team will be adding to its quarterback room.

    Advice: Ryans was diplomatic when confirming the obvious at his introductory press conference. "We understand we have one quarterback here on our roster (Davis Mills) and we have to add more to that position," Ryans said. "The quarterback is one piece." A third-round rookie overachiever in 2021, Mills not only plateaued as a sophomore, he regressed. Mills' 15 picks led the league. His supporting cast was an issue, but Mills did nothing to elevate it. With the Texans in position to draft a new franchise quarterback, the question for Mills isn't if he will start, but if the new coaching staff even wants him as the No. 2.   NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 5:33 pm

  • Getting opinions on injury
    The Chiefs are gathering opinions to determine if Hardman (pelvis) has a chance to play in Super Bowl LVII against the Bengals, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

    Advice: What alternatively has been called an abdominal or pelvic issue actually is a core muscle injury, per Garafolo. The health concern contained Hardman to just one appearance since Week 9 in this past Sunday's AFC Championship Game versus the Bengals, a contest in which he aggravated it. On Thursday, coach Andy Reid said "it'll be tough" for Hardman to be active for the Super Bowl, according to Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com. Having said that, the door remains slightly ajar for Hardman to be a part of the Chiefs' offensive game plan Sunday, Feb. 12. Rotowire.com Yesterday, 4:16 pm
