  • Chiefs believe Toney can be 'No. 1 type receiver'
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said the Chiefs believe Kadarius Toney can be the "No. 1 type receiver" they're looking for this season.

    Advice: This news comes on the heels of Fowler's appearance on ESPN Radio, where he discussed the possibility of the Chiefs signing DeAndre Hopkins. Fowler noted that while the Chiefs are interested in signing Hopkins, their confidence in Toney could prohibit them from being as aggressive as other teams on the market for Hopkins' services. Toney's explosiveness has never been in question, but the former first-rounder has struggled to stay healthy through his first two seasons. If he's able to play a near-full slate of games in 2023, his upside while tethered to Patrick Mahomes could make him a screaming value in fantasy. Today, 12:16 pm

  • Fowler: Bills/Chiefs in 'arms race' for Hopkins
    ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Bills and Chiefs are in an "arms race" for free agent WR DeAndre Hopkins.

    Advice: Fowler notes that he doesn't believe either team is "overly concerned" about landing Hopkins but that both would like to ensure Hopkins doesn't end up with the other team. He also adds that he doesn't expect the Chiefs to be as aggressive in their pursuit of Hopkins because the team believes that Kadarius Toney can be a true No. 1 receiver in 2023. The Browns and Jets could also be players in the Hopkins sweepstakes, although they don't appear to be the favorites at this time. Both the Bills and Chiefs were involved in "substantive" trade talks for Hopkins according to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer earlier this week, and could still be the odds on favorite to sign him.

  • Could be released without penalty
    Garoppolo's three-year, $72.75 million contract with the Raiders contains a clause that would allow Las Vegas to release him without penalty if he's unable to pass a physical due to his surgically repaired foot, Tashan Reed and Vic Tafur of The Athletic report.

    Advice: Garoppolo fractured his left foot while playing with the 49ers in early December, then underwent surgery in March, shortly after he finalized his contract with Las Vegas. According to a waiver and release clause in the deal, Garoppolo acknowledged the risk of further injury while continuing to play upon his return from surgery, and he also waived any responsibility on the part of the Raiders, who can terminate his contract with no further obligation or financial ramifications. The waiver becomes null and void if Garoppolo passes a physical at any point during the 2023 season, however. While the terms of the deal give the Raiders an easy out to move on from Garoppolo if his recovery doesn't proceed as anticipated, the team won't have much in the way of appealing alternatives. The Raiders are left with 37-year-old journeyman Brian Hoyer, fourth-round rookie Aidan O'Connell and 2022 undrafted free agent Chase Garbers as the other signal-callers on the roster. Meanwhile, Carson Wentz, Matt Ryan, Teddy Bridgewater and Joe Flacco are the most experienced options among an uninspiring crop of quarterbacks on the free-agent market. Yesterday, 2:46 pm

  • Jags to take more of a committee approach at RB?
    ESPN's Michael DiRocco writes the Jaguars "didn't want to see" Travis Etienne taking 74 percent of the running back carries again.

    Advice: That figure comes from how often the Jaguars used Etienne after jettisoning James Robinson. Jaguars coach Doug Pederson praised the depth added at running back in D'Ernest Johnson and Tank Bigsby, saying "this is one of the stronger rooms on the team." Etienne said of a committee approach: “I feel like it keeps the wear and tear off my body ... I don’t have to go and bang myself up each and every play." Jaguars OC Press Taylor said the team doesn't have a breakdown of how it will go just yet, but added that "there's a possibility of keeping everybody fresh through the long run of the season." Etienne's ADP is hovering near 40 and he stands to be on the strong side of a committee, but it very well could be a committee this year for the Jaguars now that they've invested in the position.

  • Garoppolo can be cut without penalty this summer
    Profootballtalk's Mike Florio reports Jimmy Garoppolo can be released without penalty by the Raiders this summer because of his 2022 foot injury. 

    Advice: Garoppolo's deal originally included an $11.25 million signing bonus, but that was converted to part of his base salary after he failed his Raiders physical this spring. Garoppolo can be cut for "any reason" related to his foot, but his $22.5 million salary becomes guaranteed once he "passes a physical exam, is active for at least one regular-season game, and does not suffer re-injury to his left foot." It would certainly seem Garoppolo's physical was most disturbing to the Silver and Black. What was already looking like a questionable signing now has the makings of a potential fiasco.

  • Michael Gallup 'feeling springy again'
    Cowboys WR Michael Gallup said he is "feeling springy again" at organized team activities.

    Advice: Gallup, now 18 months removed from a torn ACL suffered during the 2021 season, added, "I'm smiling every time I walk in that facility." He will have additional competition for targets after the signing of wide receiver Brandin Cooks during the offseason, but Gallup appears ready for a potential bounce-back season after working his way back from his ACL injury for the majority of the 2022 season.

  • KC, BUF had 'substantive' talks with AZ for Nuk
    Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports the Chiefs and Bills were the only teams to have "substantive" trade talks with the Cardinals for WR DeAndre Hopkins.

    Advice: Breer adds that contract details prevented either team from pulling the trigger before the NFL Draft and that Kansas City appeared to be close to a deal before Odell Beckham signed a one-year, $15 million contract with the Ravens. The Chiefs would seem to make more sense for Hopkins considering their glaring need for a prototypical X-style wide receiver, whereas the Bills already have one of the best X receivers in the game in Stefon Diggs. Both teams have significant cap issues, which seemingly means very little in today's NFL as teams have multiple tools at their disposal to save against the cap including restructures, deferred guarantees, and converting portions of contracts to signing bonuses.

  • Browns unlikely to reunite Hopkins, Watson
    The Akron Beacon Journal doesn't expect the Browns to sign free agent WR DeAndre Hopkins.

    Advice: Hopkins played with Deshaun Watson for three years in Houston before his Arizona trade, leading to speculation the Browns could have interest in reuniting him with his former quarterback. Cleveland has the 10th lowest cap space in the league and drafted WR Cedric Tillman in the third round. There are doubts the Browns can fit Hopkins' asking price after his contract held up trade talks with teams this offseason. Kansas City and Buffalo remain the early favorites to sign Hopkins.

  • Colts TE Jelani Woods: Injures hamstring at OTAs
    Colts TE Jelani Woods missed OTAs with a hamstring injury.

    Advice: It's a new injury for Woods, one that could limit him at mandatory OTAs next month. Overshadowed by the addition of third-round WR Josh Downs, Woods is in line for a Year 2 leap under a new coaching staff in Indy. Woods projects for heavy snaps in the Colts' redzone offense and could be the Week 1 starter after posting a 25/312/3 line as a rookie. Saturday, 10:32 am
