  • Giants cut reserve special teams WR Cody Core
    Giants released WR Cody Core.

    Advice: This move saves the team $2 million in cap space. Currently rehabbing a torn Achilles' that forced him to miss the entirety of last season, it's still possible the Giants re-sign Core to a team-friendly deal in free agency. The organization will at the very least dodge the $500,000 roster bonus he was due on March 20. NBCSportsEDGE.com 53 minutes ago

  • Rapsheet: Fitzpatrick intends to play in 2021
    NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports free agent QB Ryan Fitzpatrick does plan on playing in 2021.

    Advice: There's been some public debate (and refuting reports) on Fitzpatrick's status for 2021, but Rapoport confirms the 38-year-old veteran intends on testing the market. The former stated as early as last month that he still thinks he can be a starting quarterback, and he'll likely have the opportunity to prove as much as a coveted option with experience. The Broncos remain an ideal destination if only to compete with Drew Lock. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 1:21 pm

  • Giants restructure TE Levine Toilolo's contract
    Giants restructured TE Levine Toilolo's contract.

    Advice: Initially set to make $2.95 million this upcoming year, the Giants probably would've moved on from Toilolo altogether had he not agreed to a restructured deal. He'll continue to be used sparingly as the team's third-string option in 2021. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 10:26 am

  • Titans allowing Kalif Raymond to test free agency
    Titans will allow impending free agent WR Kalif Raymond to test free agency.

    Advice: The Titans will forego tendering Raymond, who was a restricted free agent. The 26-year-old special teamer was never able to become a full-time player in Tennessee but did flash proven chops as a deep threat from play-action, averaging 18.9 and 20.8 yards per catch the past two seasons. Perhaps he follows former Titans OC and new Falcons coach Arthur Smith to Atlanta. NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 9:59 am

  • Bills 'intent' on adding tight end in free agency
    The Athletic's Joe Buscaglia reports the Bills are "intent" on adding a tight end in free agency. 

    Advice: Dawson Knox last season, struggling through multiple injuries, saw a meager 3.75 targets per game in 11 contests, though a more dynamic tight end could command a larger target share in Buffalo's wildly pass-heavy offense. The team will have a range of free agent tight end options from which to choose, including Jonnu Smith, Cameron Brate, Hunter Henry, Kyle Rudolph, Gerald Everett, and possibly Zach Ertz. “At the end of the year, I thought we did a little bit, Dawson started to get his groove. But it was never where the opposing defense was like, ‘Man, we’ve got to stop their tight ends from going off,'" Bills general manager Brandon Beane said. "So we’ll look into that group.” Buscaglia said Smith "would immediately be the top tight end on the roster and has enough blocking abilities to stay on the field for all three downs," but mentioned his route running as a weak point that could make Henry the superior option for Buffalo. Everett, Buscaglia said, could be the best financial fit for the team.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 8:25 am

  • Steelers team site: Chase Claypool a 'diva'
    Steelers.com's Bob Labriola reported Chase Claypool's "diva quotient increased consistently over the course of his rookie season."

    Advice: It's an odd inclusion in a write up about how the team's wide receiver group projects for 2021. "Claypool didn't need very long to establish himself as a difference-maker, as a receiver capable of making plays down the field, and he was the offense's primary deep threat throughout the season," Labriola wrote. "If there was a negative, it was that it seemed as though Claypool's diva quotient increased consistently over the course of his rookie season. Whether that turns into a problem or comes to be viewed in the future as growing pains will develop over time." Claypool, 22, got into spats with opponents -- conflicts that didn't seem out of the ordinary. He wasn't an apparent distraction for the team in 2020. The touchdown machine should see a boost in playing time and targets in 2021 with JuJu Smith-Schuster likely signing elsewhere.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 7:26 am

  • Mort: Lurie wants to go all in on Hurts in '21
    NFL reporter Chris Mortensen reports Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie "has instructed his group to prioritize making [Jalen] Hurts successful in 2021 as opposed to creating a true competition."

    Advice: Mortensen reports there isn't "internal unanimity" about Hurts as the starting QB in 2021, but Lurie has been clear that the second-year QB should be given a real shot. Mortensen replied to a tweet from the Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen questioning Mort's report that the team is sure about Hurts as its starter in 2021. But Lurie's support would presumably carry significant weight with the team's new coaching staff. Mortensen said in February -- after the team traded Carson Wentz to the Colts -- that the Eagles "intend to bring in competition" for Hurts. Apparently that calculus could change with Lurie's input. The dual-threat Hurts could be a standout late-round QB pick in fantasy leagues if he wins the starting gig.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:29 am

  • Peter King: Wilson to CHI a 'futile pipe dream'
    NBC Sports' Peter King said Seattle trading Russell Wilson to the Bears is a "futile pipe dream."

    Advice: King rightfully questions what Chicago could offer that would entice the Seahawks to trade away their franchise player. Even if the Bears offer Khalil Mack, Nick Foles, the 20th pick in the NFL Draft, and their 2022 first rounder, King said the Seahawks would be unlikely to make the deal and incur at $39 million cap hit in 2021. Seattle's draft position -- the team has a single selection in the first 125 picks -- makes it nearly impossible to find a quarterback of the future if they deal Wilson to Chicago. The Bears are reportedly "prioritizing" acquiring Wilson, but the team would have to blow away the Seahawks with an offer in the coming weeks.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Today, 6:20 am

  • Teams calling Detroit to trade for QB Chase Daniel
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Lions "have had trade discussions with other teams regarding their backup QB Chase Daniel."

    Advice: Daniel has been in the NFL for a decade and has earned a total of five starts. He has thrown eight touchdowns and seven interceptions on his 261 career pass attempts. Despite his lack of starting talent, Schefter added that "Daniel has been considered an ideal mentor for young QBs." It's hard to remember a time that a team traded for a quarterback because of their teaching abilities but it likely won't require much to purchase Detroit's backup passer. Daniel learned how to mentor young quarterbacks while serving as Drew Brees' backup for four years across two stints with New Orleans, according to Schefter. He most recently started for the Bears in 2019, throwing two scores and two interceptions in a losing effort to Oakland.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 5:29 pm

  • Report: Multiple teams calling Philly about Ertz
    NFL Network's Mike Silver reports "multiple teams have called the Eagles about the possibility of trading for" TE Zach Ertz.

    Advice: Ertz is coming off his worst NFL season but he had gone to three consecutive Pro Bowls before his disastrous 2020 campaign. His counting stats took a dip in part because of his brief stay on IR but his efficiency numbers also contributed to the downturn. Ertz averaged 4.7 yards per target and only caught half of the passes thrown his way. Both marks were lows across his eight-year career. Contending teams could look to poach Ertz from the Eagles in the hopes that he reclaims some of his previous skill but they'll also likely need to give him a new contract. Ertz was pushing for a new deal from the Eagles prior to the 2020 season but both parties were unable to come to an agreement. Seattle and Indianapolis were previously reported to be interested in Ertz and both landing spots make sense for the veteran tight end.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Yesterday, 4:50 pm

Fitzpatrick averaged 232 yards per game with the highest completion-percentage (68.5%) of his career before getting benched for Tua Tagovailoa in Week 6. He turns 39 in November.

  • Brady, Bucs reworking deal to create cap space
    Josina Anderson reports the Buccaneers are "getting close" to finalizing a reworked contract for Tom Brady.

    Advice: Tampa Bay is projected to have roughly $19 million in cap space with a number of key players — Chris Godwin, Shaq Barrett, Ndamukong Suh, Antonio Brown — scheduled to hit the open market. Any restructured/extended contract would simply allow the team to spread Brady's earnings across multiple years, making it easier to retain impending free agents for another Championship run. Brady, 43, has already said he'd "consider" playing beyond 45 years old and will undoubtedly walk away whenever he deems fit (and not a day earlier). NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 3:04 pm

They could be a potential landing spot, though Rudolph isn't much of an upgrade on Ryan Izzo and would likely block 2020 third-rounders Dalton Keene and Devin Asiasi. Rudolph has also been linked to the Browns.

  • Report: Bears 'priority' is landing Russell Wilson
    According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, the Bears "have prioritized" making a run at Russell Wilson.

    Advice: Biggs is the Bears' ace beat writer and has been covering the club for a long time, so his words carry weight. Chicago's focus is on upgrading its quarterback spot with Mitchell Trubisky now headed to free agency and Nick Foles an obvious non-answer at the position. GM Ryan Pace and coach Matt Nagy need to swing big, and landing Wilson would obviously qualify. Wilson's agent said he'd accept a trade to four teams, and the Bears were on that list along with the Saints, Cowboys, and Raiders. New Orleans is in a salary-cap nightmare. Dallas seems intent on retaining Dak Prescott. And the Raiders haven't yet wavered in their support of Derek Carr. With the Seahawks "answering" calls on Wilson, the Bears should make every effort they can to acquire the 32-year-old. It would take a massive haul. NBCSportsEDGE.com Saturday, 6:37 am

He ran for 105 yards on 18 carries in a Week 17 spot appearance and had five touches in the Divisional Round loss to Tampa. Montgomery provides the cap-strapped Saints depth at running back, receiver, and kick returner.

    The Washington Football Team announced Alex Smith requested his release from the team. 

    Advice: Washington head coach Ron Rivera said in a statement announcing Smith's release that he met with Smith and "decided that it would be best for both parties to move on." Smith's request for release aligns with comments he made in February about the team not including him in their 2020 plans. "They never thought I was coming back. No one there," Smith told GQ. He insisted there were no hard feelings between him and the coaching staff, but the well had clearly been poisoned. Releasing Smith, 36, makes financial sense for the Football Team, which save nearly $15 million against the cap.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 9:01 am

  • Bridgewater 'could make sense' for Washington
    ESPN's John Keim reports Teddy Bridgewater "could make sense" as Washington's QB in 2021. 

    Advice: Washington officially released Alex Smith on Friday, saving almost $15 million against the salary cap. Keim cited Bridgewater's familiarity with Football Team offensive coordinator Scott Turner, with whom Bridgewater worked in Minnesota years ago. Marty Hurney, Washington's executive vice president of player personnel, was with the Panthers when the team signed Bridgewater last year. This would hinge on the Panthers drafting a quarterback with the eighth pick in the NFL Draft or adding a starting QB in free agency (Carolina has cleared cap space for a possible run at Deshaun Watson). Bridgewater wouldn't be anything more than a bridge option to a long-term quarterback for Washington, assuming the veteran can beat out Taylor Heinicke for the starting job.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 7:30 am

  • Kingsbury confident Chase Edmonds can be lead back
    Cardinals head coach Kliff Kingsbury said the coaching staff is confident Chase Edmonds can serve as the team's primary running back. 

    Advice: Kingsbury said the team sees Edmonds as a potential "bell cow" back a couple weeks before Kenyan Drake becomes a free agent. With Drake sidelined last year in Week 9, Edmonds took 25 carries for a mere 70 yards against Miami. He didn't see more than 11 carries in a game for the rest of the year, struggling with various injuries along the way. “We all understand that he’s unfortunately been nicked up a couple times, which we want to keep him on the field," Kingsbury said. "But we have all the confidence in the world in Chase and him being able to be the bell cow if that’s how this plays out.” It's clear Cardinals see Edmonds as a capable pass catcher out of the backfield. He saw 67 targets in 2020 -- fourth most on the team and fifth most among all running backs. If Drake departs via free agency, it would be presumptuous to assume Edmonds would inherit a bell cow role.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Friday, 5:06 am

  • Chiefs FB Anthony Sherman retires after 10 seasons
    Chiefs FB Anthony Sherman has announced his retirement from the NFL after 10 seasons. 

    Advice: A free agent, 32-year-old Sherman was not expected to be re-signed. A 2011 fifth-round pick of the Cardinals, Sherman spent the past eight years as Andy Reid's lead blocker in Kansas City. Sherman hangs up his cleats with 94 career touches, just four of which came in 2020. His high points were 2013 and 2017, where he handled the ball 20 times a piece. Despite that lack of official touches, being an NFL fullback is a brutally grinding business, even on limited snaps.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Thursday, 3:26 pm

    Advice: We knew about one, which is difficult enough to play through. The timeline, or whether both injuries were to the same foot, is unclear. Coupled with Alex Smith's pop-gun presence under center, it would explain why McLaurin's production dramatically tailed in the second half of the season. Despite the injuries, the 25-year-old still managed to confirm himself as one of the best young receivers in football.

"But I have confidence Drew can continue to improve.” It's the latest, strongest indication Lock won't be getting any free 2021 lunches after his dismal sophomore campaign.

  • Report: Kyle Rudolph interested in Browns
    Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot reports Kyle Rudolph would be interested in signing with the Browns if the team doesn't retain David Njoku. 

    Advice: This comes as NESN's Doug Kyet reports the Patriots are interested in signing the veteran tight end. Cabot cited a source who said Rudolph -- released by the Vikings on Tuesday -- would be open to reuniting with Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski, who was Minnesota's offensive coordinator in 2019. That year, the lumbering Rudolph caught 39 passes for 367 yards and six touchdowns on 48 targets. Njoku probably won't be back with Cleveland. He's heading into his fifth-year option year at $6.013 million, and since the salary isn't guarantee until the first day of the league year March 17, the Browns can release Njoku with no dead cap space or trade him. Rudolph's addition to Cleveland's roster likely won't affect Austin Hooper's opportunity any more than Njoku or Harrison Bryant did in 2020.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Wednesday, 6:53 am

  • Vikings release Kyle Rudolph after 10 seasons
    Vikings released TE Kyle Rudolph. 

    Advice: A Viking his entire 10-year career, Rudolph was on the record as not willing to take a pay cut, making this an expected cut. The move clears $5.037 million in cap space, a number that increases to $7.937 million if he is designated as a post-June 1 release. Headed into his age-32 campaign, Rudolph's 28 receptions last season were his fewest since his injury-shortened 2014. He made it clear in a February interview that did not sit well with him. Rudolph's experience and wingspan should draw plenty of interest as a goal-line threat and chain mover. His departure from Minnesota paves the TE2 way for Irv Smith, a third-year pro who could make the leap to TE1 status in 2021.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Tuesday, 2:43 pm

    Advice: Smith, 36, is owed $26.2 million in 2021. Releasing him before June 1 would save Washington $14.7 million against the salary cap. The 2020 Comeback Player of the Year came back from a two-year leg injury to start six games for the Football Team after starting the season as a third stringer.

Apparently he was right. Jaguars Report's John Shipley said a reunion between Smith and Urban Meyer, his coach at Utah, would make sense. In February, Washington signed Taylor Heinicke -- who impressed in a playoff start against Tampa -- to a two-year deal. Heinicke, 27, will have a shot at the starting job in 2021 even when Washington brings in signal callers via the draft and free agency.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Mar 1, 7:34 am

    Advice: The Dolphins' commitment to Tua Tagovailoa as the team's starter means Fitzpatrick would have to look elsewhere this offseason if he wants a starting gig. Fitzpatrick was less than thrilled with Miami's decision to bench him at midseason in favor of Tagovailoa, who struggled throughout the second half of the season. The Broncos reportedly have interest in Fitzpatrick, though the team remains in the Deshaun Watson conversation. Drew Lock could be the latest young quarterback to lose his starting job to Fitz if he signed with Denver. The grizzled veteran has a lengthy history of unseating young signal callers, including Geno Smith, Jameis Winston, and Josh Rosen. The Dolphins will need to remove any and all competition for Tua to be the team's opening day starter. There's almost no chance Fitzpatrick returns to South Florida.  NBCSportsEDGE.com Feb 26, 8:24 am
