  • Vikings have interest in Rod Streater
    The Vikings have interest in free agent Rod Streater.

    Advice: The Vikings haven't visited with Streater but are in the market for a speed receiver to replace Cordarrelle Patterson. The Colts, Seattle, Cleveland and the 49ers are also in the mix. Rotoworld.com 29 minutes ago

  • Zach Hocker works out for Jacksonville
    Free agent K Zach Hocker worked out for the Jaguars.

    Advice: Hocker spent all of 2016 out of the league. He would add competition for Jason Myers. Rotoworld.com 41 minutes ago

  • Jacksonville signs TE Mychal Rivera
    Jaguars signed TE Mychal Rivera to a two-year, $6.75 million contract.

    Advice: The second year of the deal is a team option. Rivera also had interest from the Jets and Colts. Jacksonville is a solid landing spot after moving on from Julius Thomas. Rivera could open the season as the Jaguars' top receiving tight end, but is unlikely to have much of an impact. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:50 pm

  • Christine Michael visits with Packers
    Free agent Christine Michael visited the Packers.

    Advice: It's his first known interest since the start of free agency. Michael played nine games (including playoffs) with the Packers last year after getting claimed off waivers. With Eddie Lacy gone, he could be brought back to compete for a committee role. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:39 pm

  • FA Tim Hightower visiting Redskins Wednesday
    Free agent RB Tim Hightower is visiting the Redskins on Wednesday.

    Advice: Hightower turns 31 in May, but he sat out the 2012, 2013, and 2014 seasons after tearing his ACL with the Redskins and experiencing complications. If he signs in Washington, it would be a reunion of sorts. Rob Kelley came on strong as an UDFA last season but fizzled a bit down the stretch. Matt Jones has shown nothing since a big game or two as a 2015 rookie. This backfield could use a fresh face. Hightower is nothing more than a timeshare back as part of a duo.

  • Aiken, Dorsett to compete for Colts' No. 3 WR
    In a Wednesday conference call, newly signed WR Kamar Aiken said GM Chris Ballard told him he'll be given a fair shake to win the Colts' No. 3 receiver job.

    Advice: Ballard has no ties to former first-round WR Phillip Dorsett and likely doesn't care whether he's the No. 3 or 4 wideout. Aiken was signed on Tuesday and "was told there was going to be open competition in the receiving room." Aiken also seemed legitimately salty about being phased out of the Ravens' offense in 2016 after leading the team in receiving the previous year. Dorsett has shown very little in the NFL. We wouldn't be surprised at all if Aiken wins the job. Rotoworld.com Today, 9:59 am

  • Steelers moving on from DeAngelo Williams
    The Steelers are not expected to re-sign free agent RB DeAngelo Williams.

    Advice: The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Ed Bouchette believes that "ship has sailed." Williams did a great job filling in for Le'Veon Bell the past couple seasons, but Bouchette expects Pittsburgh to address running back in the draft and get younger there. Turning 34 next month, Williams hasn't drawn an ounce of known interest but could be waiting for training camp to sign. Rotoworld.com Today, 6:50 am

    Free agent QB Mark Sanchez will visit the Bears on Thursday.

    Advice: It's Sanchez's first action of free agency. Nothing more than a clipboard-holder at this point in his career, Sanchez would slide in behind Mike Glennon. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 7:25 pm

  • Bears ink RB Benny Cunningham to 1-year deal
    Bears signed RB Benny Cunningham, formerly of the Rams, to a one-year contract.

    Advice: It's a solid, under-the-radar signing for the Bears. Cunningham is a dependable pass-catching and pass-protecting runner out of the backfield who didn't get many opportunities behind Todd Gurley in L.A. Cunningham can also return kickoffs; he has a 27.1 average on 95 career returns. His addition could spell trouble for Jeremy Langford and/or Ka'Deem Carey behind Jordan Howard.

  • Newton needs surgery on throwing shoulder
    Cam Newton will undergo surgery on his throwing shoulder to repair a "partially torn rotator cuff," and is questionable for the start of training camp.

    Advice: Newton first suffered the injury in Week 14. The team initially believed he would heal with rest and rehab, but instead he'll go under the knife on March 30. Newton will do no throwing for three months, and won't resume throwing with the team for four months. That's right around the start of camp. Newton could be highly limited in the preseason, and perhaps held out of exhibition action altogether. At least for now, his Week 1 status is not in doubt. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 12:02 pm

  • Marshawn Lynch's agent: He misses football
    Speaking in a Tuesday radio interview, Marshawn Lynch's agent said the retired running back "does miss football."

    Advice: Despite that admission, Lynch's agent claimed ignorance on his apparent comeback plans. "Well in all sincerity, Marshawn’s been in Canada," the rep said. "I’m due to see him this week. ... He loves the game of football. He’s 30. But until I meet with him this week, you know, I don’t know what his mindset is. He’s the kind of guy that can shift by the hour." All reports have had Lynch angling for a shot with his hometown Raiders. The situation should come to a head sometime in the next few weeks, if not days. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 10:09 am

  • Giants add former 49ers RB Shaun Draughn
    Giants signed RB Shaun Draughn, formerly of the 49ers.

    Advice: It is a bit of an odd signing. Draughn has done his best work as a receiver throughout his career, and the Giants would seem to be set in that department with Shane Vereen returning. Draughn is quality depth, however, and his signing will not stop the Giants from addressing the position in the draft. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 8:23 am

  • Colts sign former Ravens WR Kamar Aiken
    Colts signed WR Kamar Aiken, formerly of the Ravens, to a one-year contract.

    Advice: Aiken led the Ravens with 944 yards on 75 catches in 2015, but he took a step back last season as the receiver corps returned to full health. With Phillip Dorsett struggling to make an impact, Aiken should slide in as the No. 3 behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief in Indy. Aiken is unlikely to carry much fantasy value while everyone is healthy, but he will be a name to know on the waiver wire. Rotoworld.com Yesterday, 5:27 am

  • Report: 'Raiders or bust' for Marshawn Lynch
    According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, it's "Raiders or bust" for Marshawn Lynch.

    Advice: Lynch isn't willing to play for the Seahawks or anyone other than his hometown Raiders. Additionally, Lynch un-retiring is "realer than it's ever been," which lines up with what MMQB's Peter King reported on Monday. Expect this to get worked out before the draft so the Raiders know what they have. Right now, odds seem much better than 50-50 that Lynch will be a Raider. Rotoworld.com Monday, 8:00 am

    Advice: "He also wants to do good things for his foundation in the area," the source said. "This is a great chance to accomplish both things." Lynch is from the Bay Area and has reportedly asked the Seahawks for his release so he can sign with his hometown Raiders. Per King, Lynch-to-Oakland is "real." Rotoworld.com Monday, 6:42 am

  • Seahawks may be forced to cut Marshawn Lynch
    ESPN's Sheil Kapadia believes the Seahawks may be forced to cut Marshawn Lynch if he decides to come out of retirement.

    Advice: Lynch would be owed $9 million, a number which would take up a large chunk of Seattle's remaining $14.7 million cap space. The Seahawks could hold Lynch in an effort to extract a draft pick from the Raiders, but doing so would limit their flexibility in the second and third waves of free agency. If Lynch does come back, Kapadia believes the Seahawks will "most likely" release him. Rotoworld.com Saturday, 8:31 am

  • Report: Lynch asked Seahawks to release him
    According to Jordan Schultz of the Huffington Post, Marshawn Lynch asked for his release Thursday in a meeting with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider.

    Advice: Despite retiring last year, the Seahawks still hold Lynch's rights. Schultz also added that Lynch has been wearing Raiders gear around his friends. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirmed that Lynch was at the Seahawks facility on Thursday, though Garafolo called it "more of a personal visit than anything." Garafolo went on to say that Lynch is in a "holding pattern" right now and is still weighing his options. Lynch is an Oakland native and the Raiders need a running back after losing Latavius Murray to the Vikings. It doesn't look like this story is going away. Rotoworld.com Friday, 12:12 pm

  • Lynch more likely to be released than traded
    According to ESPN's Sheil Kapadia, Marshawn Lynch is more likely to be released than traded if he comes out of retirement.

    Advice: There's been talk of Lynch returning to play for his hometown Raiders, who are looking to replace lead back Latavius Murray. The Seahawks still own Lynch's rights, so he would have to be traded or released for that to happen. To pull off the trade, the Seahawks would have to convince Oakland to take on Lynch's $9 million salary, which seems unlikely. Per NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, Lynch is in shape but is still deciding whether to resume his playing career. Rotoworld.com Friday, 10:32 am

    Free agent Kamar Aiken will visit the Colts on Friday.

    Advice: He'll meet with the Seahawks on Monday. Aiken got lost in the shuffle last year after leading the Ravens with 944 receiving yards in 2015. In Indy, he'd be a solid complementary option behind T.Y. Hilton and Donte Moncrief. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:20 am

    Free agent Mychal Rivera will visit the Jets on Monday.

    Advice: Tight end has been a black hole for the Jets in recent years, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins was recently hit with a two-game substance-abuse suspension. Rivera caught just 18 passes for 192 yards last year in Oakland while grading poorly as a run-blocker. He wouldn't be much of an upgrade in New York. Rotoworld.com Friday, 8:11 am

  • Raiders considering a run at Marshawn Lynch
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders are seriously considering luring Marshawn Lynch out of retirement.

    Advice: The Lynch comeback rumors have been swirling since last summer, but this idea may actually have legs. Lynch is an Oakland native and played his college ball at nearby Cal-Berkeley. And as ESPN's Chris Sprow pointed out on Twitter, Lynch is 13 months younger than Adrian Peterson and hasn't taken a hit in over a year. The Raiders lost their lead back Latavius Murray to the Vikings in free agency. One source told Schefter, "it could really happen." The Seahawks still own Lynch's rights, so he'd have to be traded or released before he could join his hometown Raiders. Rotoworld.com Friday, 6:11 am

  • Niners to host free agent RB Tim Hightower
    The 49ers will host free agent Tim Hightower on Thursday.

    Advice: Like many of the free agents San Francisco has signed, Hightower has a history with Kyle Shanahan from Washington. The 49ers have addressed their running game aggressively, trading for C Jeremy Zuttah, signing FB Kyle Juszczyk, and now hosting one of the NFL's better No. 2 backs for a visit. Hightower totaled 748 yards and five touchdowns on 155 touches in New Orleans last year. Rotoworld.com Wednesday, 7:57 pm
